Re: “Another ranking, another low score for Arkansas as a place to do business

This is not about government run amuck, its about the haves slamming the door on the have-nots.

Is there a difference?

Re: “Does an Arkansas-born anarchist spell the end of gun control with printable firearms?

Home made guns have always been possible. They are 19th century tech. Outside of the barrel, anyone with enough patience could make one with hand tools and a hardware store. Why bother when you could get one made with 21st century precision manufacturing? More realistically in the US, Buying partially finished receivers and having a machine shop finish it is not uncommon. Wilson is simply eliminating the need to pay a machinist.

Re: “Hitting the gun lobby where it hurts: bank accounts

"Gyl, should I interpret your comment to mean that our safety, and that of our loved ones, is dependent on Trump being in office?"

Is Trump still literally MEGAHITLER? I haven't kept up.

If yes, then of course your safety depends on Trump being in office and you should definitely demand he take all the guns away before he sends you to a death camp.


Otherwise, Clinton being out of office has the same effect changing the forecast from 1/4" of snow to warm and sunny has on bread and milk sales.

Re: “Hitting the gun lobby where it hurts: bank accounts

"For example, in early October 2017 American Outdoor Brands that owns Smith & Wesson had suffered a 46% decline in stock price since the November 2016 election"

The gun salesman of the decade was forced into retirement and management decided to go a new direction with his replacement.

Obama is gone, and Hillary lost.

More talk of gun grabbing == more demand for guns == more gunmaker profit.

Re: “Daily updates and an open line

"And finally, I would like to know how much WalMart will benefit in total from the recent tax cuts"

Around $2 billion, $3 tops, if they don't do anything with pricing or anything else really expensive.

Silicon Valley is doing fine now. How well it will do in an environment where holding the elite political opinion becomes priority number one and deviance is not tolerated.

Good news for Austin.
