    I don't think the last recession can be individually blamed of either Republicans or Democrats, being that much of the legislation that led to the housing crisis had been getting passed for the prior like...20 years, and there were numerous combinations in power during that time frame who didn't fix it. ...

    Snoopy, you keep saying it was worst in the 90's. Wasn't Bush senior the president from 1989 - 1993? So by that logic...it got the worst DURING his presidency. I'm not siding one way or another as I don't believe President alone dictates crime in a country, but c'mon. The crime was going down like the entirety of Clinton's presidency...and if a Democratic President directly led to more/worse...

    Regarding the Israel thing, I'm curious...how does this trip of theirs benefit the US in any way shape or form? It sort of seems like these politicians are trying to use their time, taxpayers money, and position as a US official to impact religious items in other countries, that quite frankly, have absolutely nothing to do with bettering the US. You were elected to make the US a better place...

    I just want to point out, as I saw somebody mention the increasing divorce rates. Outside of the baby boomers generation, I don't think anything shows this as actually occurring. Actually, for millenials, divorce rates have been going down substantially from the baby boomer generation. ...

    I'm curious with the "the odds of a criminal committing another crime are pretty high". What crimes are you all suggesting prevent buying a gun? And for that matter, how many of these mass shooters already have a horrible record. I have no idea. But are there quite a few where we were clearly able to say...wow, why on Earth did we ever sell guns to them based on their past criminal history? ...

    To add to the argument, gun restriction, while it absolutely appears to reduce HOMICIDE with a gun, doesn't appear to reduce violent crime at all. Britain and Wales, for instance have more than double the rate of violent crime as the US. So I've got to ask (even though this trade-off isn't necessarily inevitable), would you be more comfortable with a higher gun homicide rate but...

    You are completely misunderstanding my point. People are acting like gun ownership is a national disaster. In the grand scheme of things, not very many people are dying to guns. While more than virtually every other advanced country out there, it is still an extremely small number. 5 per 100,000 is the number I saw while looking it up earlier. That being said, these events occurring at all...
