First people whine when police shoot criminals, now they're whining when police want to use less lethal methods to stop criminals.
Maybe we should give the police pillows. Or would they be too hard on the criminals?
We have always told the drug companies that we would not pressure them and create a slippery slope where prices they negotiate with us for poor countries would inevitably lead to similar prices in rich countries.
[...] If we do try to do something in this area, we suggest that we approach the innovator companies that can currently sell products in the US with the idea of making donations to help clear the ADAP lists. For a variety of reasons, the companies will likely favor a donation approach rather than one that erodes prices across the board.
[...] I would guess that they would also likely favor a solution that involved their drugs rather than an approach that allowed generic drugs from India to flood the US market at low prices or one that set a precedent of waiving patent laws on drugs.
Several million times a year, guns are used to deter or prevent crime. Most of those are merely showing the gun or announcing its presence. Very very few of these make the news, because they are boring. But they work because guns are simple and effective. If all guns were smart guns, they'd bo so unreliable that very few criminals would be deterred by them, and crime would skyrocket.
On, and all your police would be be effectively disarmed too. Unless of course you think police (who commit more crimes off-duty than conceal carriers) are more responsible than "civilians".

I wish all statists would have to endure their own nanny coercion.

I wish all
There are more irresponsible car owners than gun owners.

When you are perfect, let us gun owners know, and we will proceed to the next step in your embrace of reality.
If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments. -- Earl Wilson
