Giving corporations tax breaks with the expectation that they will spread the extra wealth around is trickle down economics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trickle-down_economics
Wealth has been continually trickling (sometimes gushing) up since around 1980.  When do you expect it to start going the other way?

I do not, I'm not sure why you think I'm arguing in favor of trickle down economics.
Because of your words?  But sorry I misunderstood.

Seriously, scg
Trickle down is proven to not work in so many examples
Quit promoting it

I believe you've misunderstood what SCG was saying...
I believe you need a refresher course in sarcasm.

Did everyone just completely loose the ability to detect sarcasm in this thread?  What a cluster. :)

I'll put my views simply then.  Trickle down does not work.  It's bad for the economy.  It only serves to make the rich wealthier.

Uncle Joe is talking gun control today.

Ghost guns - Something I didn't know was an issue. I do think having untraceable guns should be illegal.

Ban assault weapons - This won't go over well with the gun nuts.

Close "Charleston loophole" - Gives more time to complete background checks, I hope they get this one done.

Background checks for guns bought at gun shows - Good, but I wonder about other private sales.

Reauthorize Violence Against Women Act - I think this shouldn't have been allowed to lapse, and I also wonder if this will close the "boyfriend loophole".

Eliminate gun manufacturer immunity - This will require an act of Congress. I don't know if it will get through the senate, and I also don't know if this is a good idea or not. 

There's probably more, but that's what I've seen so far.

I don't see how eliminating manufacturer immunity could be a good thing.  I can understand if there was a defect with the gun which caused an injury, but for a gun to be used in a shooting and open the manufacturer to liability for the damages caused sounds dangerous.  You're essentially making one party responsible for a completely unrelated party's actions.  The manufacturers aren't even the ones selling the guns to the people using them.

Yeah and where would it end? If the shooter was a big fan of the Call of Duty games will the studio of those games be held accountable? (no sympathy if the studio is EA. F those guys lol)

Or you could just institute a ban on bump stocks or limit magazine sizes if that is what you want.  Making gun manufacturers liable could be extended in other areas.  Someone gets into a head-on collision because of a drunk driver, now that person could sue both the car manufacturer and the brewing company for the drunk driver's actions.  Someone chokes on a chicken bone or has an allergic reaction to a food, sue the farmer which raised/grew the food.  It just doesn't make sense in any way, you can't hold a company responsible for the actions of someone who uses their products yet have no interaction with.

Holding gun manufacturers liable isn't going to solve anything. Realistically that would last until the first lawsuit gets to the now highly conservative Supreme Court which will just shoot it down.

And lets be honest here, hand guns and automatics are designed and built to kill people. It seems weird to sue a company because their products worked as designed.

I'm liberal and don't support most gun legislation because I think it's not an issue that can be solved with a few laws. At this point the GOP has made guns a huge wedge issue, and convinced Republican voters that Democrats want to raid their homes, steal their guns and put them all into reeducation camps. Tell a Republican you are a Democrat with a gun and they look at you like you're a unicorn.

Biden's executive orders won't do anything, they can just be reversed by the next President.  Even if not, they won't make a dent.

There are only two solutions.  Get rid of the guns, or get rid of the environment that makes people use them. Anyone looking at things realistically is going to know that getting rid of them just isn't going to happen. It's just not. That leaves the second option, which sucks because there isn't much we can do THERE either. But at least that is something we could realistically improve.

Bumpstock dodges full auto.
Having kits to convert semi to full auto also possible.


Not holding the inappropriate actions to the individual but having avenues for use and appropriate restrictions.

How many mass shootings have been conducted using bump stocks or something else that circumvents restrictions in place on guns?  The only one I can think of is the Las Vegas shooting.  Those full automatic conversion kits are as regulated as full automatic weapons, you have to have a special license to obtain one.  Besides, there are things people can do without the kits to turn their semiautomatics into full automatic without the kits, but doing this is illegal.  I don't recall hearing of any mass shooting being conducted with a fully automatic weapon though.

You're missing the mark here.  You can own a ferrari and illegally race it on the street.  If you do this, someone effected by your stupid decision can't sue the manufacturer, which is a good thing.  Hold the accountable party responsible.

You probably canít hold manufacturers responsible for individual incidents, but maybe the industry and its lobbyists should be accountable for doing everything they can to block legislation and bolster the culture of gun ownership.  And a lot of that is spreading fear.  They are the ones filling the country with guns and then they tell you that the only way to protect yourself and your family from all the people with guns is to buy their guns.  You canít deny the results, but doesnít that seem a tad unethical?

but if you look at the timing, they moved away from kurds because he likes erdogan, but also because he was trying to pick a fight with iran and needed to shift troops a-ready at the border.
