    When in doubt, just shoehorn something into Commerce Clause. It isn't like that could go wrong.

    More cops die from vehicle related accidents (auto crashes, bike accidents, hit by car) than die from guns. We should really restrict auto sales. Not just usage, but sales of cars.

    You don't support weaker auto ownership laws at the expense of police lives do you?

    Care to use that same line of reasoning for other rights? We won't touch the First Amendment...but we can and should use the Commerce Clause to restrict sales of pen and paper. They're used in crimes for ransom notes and stock fraud and ID theft. We need to keep people from having the tools to commit those crimes as well.

    It isn't like government can't abuse the Commerce Clause to shut down political speech or anything.

    No one is declaiming Arms as a class of private property.

    Gun laws, weak or strict, have no bearing on gun violence.

    When you do decide to come back, I hope you have an explanation for places like Idaho and their super low gun violence rates. But, I won't hold my breath.

    Gun control doesn't work ANYWHERE it is enforced. You want a safe town? Go to one that allows concealed carry.

    What does that have to do with your support of looser gun regulations at the expense of the lives of law enforcement?
