  1. Back to the topic, My kids will know how to use a firearm in time. Does our life revolve around them? No. Later on, if they want to own them and use them legally then so be it.
  2. Having come from poverty, when one is too busy surviving politics is just meaningless white noise.
  3. Data backs it up. They largely do not care. The poorer that one is (criminals being poor mostly), the less that one cares. I am not going to do the work for you on this one. Besides, any knowledge of human nature will affirm this.

    So be it. I pick my battles. No one on here is worth getting worked up over.

    Your responses to this admitted troll are pretty passionate.

    Most workers do not make minimum wages. So therefore, using that as your metric is a strawman. The better metric is to get the average wage for the county/state.

    And yet you let an admitted troll get you worked up.

    What percentage of workers make minimum wage? I came out of poverty and working low end jobs....how possibly could I have done it?

    Could only rich kids afford tuition if it was less than $1000 per semester?

    In addition to the students, I could see smaller schools closing their doors. That is the nature of the game but not everybody would take their getting laid off with such grace.

    As a more intermediate solution, I would support making it more difficult to obtain these loans.

    You have your sights set high if you think that government is going to pull out entirely. In plain english, the end of federally funded student loans. However, these loans are a large part of the increase in the cost. The universities know that they can charge exorbitant rates because the students can and will get student loans to cover the cost. It distorts the demand and supply dynamic. Another less publicized element is the salaries of the high level admin.

    Apparently, room/board and fees are still being charged so it is not like they are getting a completely "free ride" From posts above, it appears that the cost is being absorbed by donations from corporations and the private sector. Somewhat unrelated but I will say that the cost of higher education is out of hand.

    Good point. Good faculty do not come cheap.
