Illegal gun flow is out of the US not in..

I don't think any of this has much truth. According to at least some sources illegal copies of weapons cost more then the legal ones. And if you drive the cost up you are going to make them less available.

This more guns and less guns argument will never come to any accord - both sides are just too far apart. It isn't like you haven't discussed this before.

Why don't you try talking about what an intern pharmacist and a food inspector could have done to America! By the way; I wonder if his food inspections are now being scrutinized? Would somebody, that only wanted to kill infidels, really care if salmonella was found at any restaurant? Rats, no problems, you are doing a great job!
