    by gun owners and gun sellers plus a repeal of the odious immunity from civil liability granted to gun manufacturers would do way, way more to quell this gun violence than any of this regulation.

    Money talks.  So use it to speak.

    •  I do believe gun mfg. should be subject (0+ / 0-)

      to federal safety checks, regulations, etc.

          Sometimes I'm struck by how much capitalism is like a virus.  It can kill it's host, even at it's own expense, but it pursues it's "goals" all the same - no morals, or moral judgements...
