commented on ICYMI: Gun Advocate Needed Her Guns To Protect Herself and Her Family
well posted Dr Savage, thank you!
@28 i always wanted to hear someone ask a gun rights nut your bazooka question to hear what the canned response is. because somewhere between a shotgun and a RPG i suspect they'd draw a line (but perhaps not -sigh-) and then one could ask why any automatic weapon, a device who's soul purpose is to kill the most amount of people in the least amount of time, is sane yet a bazooka isn't.

“Never let a good crisis go to waste” --Winston S. Churchill
It's about: "LBGTQ!" "no! Hispanics", "no! gun control", "no! radical religions", "no! xenophobia"... (of course, there's horror enough for all, and one ought to share)
commented on ShotSpotter Sounds Great, but Does It Reduce Gun Violence?
It would be very edifying if some tenacious reporter would attempt to follow the money on this proposal; also: police body cameras, intersection ticketing cameras, and even some of the suppression of municipal internet in deference to private interests. imagine if some of your bits of thumb-tacked yarn tended to converge on just a few agents.

You already know how this poll will come out, yes? It's at the bottom of a posting which demonstrates that the 'yes' option is a positive, (and even mentioning the mayor and city council in this venue is a option death) It's push polling at its most raw. But then you-all know that and post such polls for other reasons, we must presume?

Then drop into that social Gordian knot an unregulated pile of weapons designed with the singular purpose of killing the most people in the shortest amount of time and one would be surprised this doesn't happen twice a week ...wait, i believe it does now. Please consider that psychological troubled folks are, and will remain, a social constant, and unfortunately so will dogmatic religious convictions, so of the three critical factors here, where is the only real hope for change?
