kbush, having more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens has proven to reduce gun violence. Has adding on more debt been proven to reduce debt? Actually, the solution is the same. Guns in the hands of the individual reduces gun violence. Money in the hands of the individual reduces government debt.

At the White House once I was regaling him with local news from Champaign (which he was always ready to hear), and I said, 'Blank is dead; his extremely disloyal sentiments so provoked his neighbors that there was serious talk of inflicting vengeance on him, and he was found dead in bed—caused largely by fright.' This man was an old Whig friend of Lincoln, but the reason of his exit from life's trials amused him. His comment was, 'He died, then, to save his life, it seems.'"- Lincoln's Own Stories, Anthony Gross, HARPER & BROTHERS PUBLISHERS NEW YORK AND LONDON, 1912
