"But our 'crippled economy' was largely due to increased spending in the federal budget, sharp increases in hidden taxes and regulations, and the reckless spending by all federal agencies. Let's also not forget that an increase in inflation and the increase in the printing of more money by the Federal Reserve also contributed to our economic decline. And let's not even leave out the fact that the government also bailed out Amtrak, the airline industry, and the U.S. Postal Service..."

It's been proven time and time again that irrational crazies will find other ways to hurt innocent victims if guns are not available. However, some "news" outlets insist on propagating lies about the availability of firearms.
