There will also be comments by gun owners saying they are the good gun owners, its those other gun owners that are the problem.

Gun nuts or sensible folks blaming the parents seems a bit of a stretch. Dad divorces when kid is 17, 9 years later shooter goes on a rampage. At some point a young person isn't a minor anymore.

@8 It's fad, it's fashion. Perhaps someday it'll stop being a thing everyone does (like carrying swords around).
Oct 1, 2015 sloegin commented on Obama: “Our Thoughts and Prayers Are Not Enough”.
Hey why wait a week or two for another mass shooting, there's one right now in Florida. How about fuck the fact that you can kill multiple people with a tool that only requires a little bit of finger wiggling.
Sep 9, 2015 sloegin commented on Here’s How the City Could Stop Those Special Move-In Deals for Tech Workers.

Straight up dumb if only because 2 identical good renters with stable income from a large employers, and one gets benefits because they're from the 2 or 3 large Seattle employers any idiot can name off the top of their heads.

There's more work in this town than just AmazBuckSoft

Puppies did indeed lose, but not before they managed to trash some of the lesser known voting categories with their slates; Novellas, Short Stories, Editors etc. No Award stopped the sad puppies cold, but also took out the few legitimate nominees in those categories.

One two punch, first Hump now FWA. Jesus this paper has gone to hell. If the stranger wants to be a 20 page content-free rehash of the Seattle weekly, congratulations, you’re almost there. Savage, Callan Berry, and Muede (while great) aren’t enough to keep this thing afloat.
