And notice that the people using cars is vastly higher than the number
of people using guns. The difference is probably 1000:1.

But the RATE is much, much, lower.

Ok ray, you said earlier on that "guns will continue to be freely available
even when illegal. Everybody knows that that is
nonsense. " Which is a lie.

The president appoints thousands of people in his Adminisration.
Virtually all the big decision makers are SES (Senior Executive
Service - the super grades in the GS system). But that's the US
system.

Reagan was pretty much groomed by the Hoover Institute which is not
part of the Stanford U. but near the campus. Dirty little secret is
they had their hands in a lot of his decisions. The pupper master so
to speak.

There are others in California. Some are degree granting institutions.
