This was written in April of last year. They already got banned at the federal level. Does your post have a point?

They probably had a reason... I mean, even boredom is a reason...

Shower Thought about Guns - I don't really care that much about them - I'm not scared of them - I've shot a few - I'm just not into them - death and destruction are not appealing to me - but its weird how many people gather around the 2nd amendment when no one uses it to stand up to gov't oppression by EndlessSunflowers in whatever

"It seems guns are mostly used by kids shooting kids - what am I missing?"

What are you missing? The number of times annually guns are used in self defense in the US, for one.

Per the CDC, there are between 500,000 and 3 million defensive gun uses in the US annually. The big spread is from differing methods of data collection and definitions of defensive gun use. Even using the lowest number, that's 500,000 lives saved to 13,000 gun related homicides annually.

On a related note, calling people "gun freaks" makes you sound like an asshole.

I'd like to extend some constructive criticism:

Your title reads like a rant and is borderline incoherent.

Referencing stuff like an impending civil war and/or 'Psyops' is likely only going to attract conspiracy nuts and extremists to your conversation.

That aside, this dude is a nut! Social media should not be a public utility. The government should not have that degree of control over these private companies. If you don't like Reddit or Facebook, or the Tweeter, come to Saidit! Or better yet, make your own social media platform!

Not to start off on the wrong foot, but that's not a "guy" you're referring to.

I'm a little ignorant on this topic, but looking at Kaitlin Jenner (sp?), it seems obvious that her muscle mass is superior to most biological women. Are the physical effects of testosterone on MtF transitioned people who received HRT after puberty negated by the therapy?

I saw that some organizations are allowing transgender athletes to compete based on their testosterone levels. I dunno.... In general it just doesn't sit right with me if there's a possibility of an unfair advantage.

It also bothers me greatly that anyone who speaks out on a topic like this is immediately labeled a bigot and silenced. These conversations SHOULD take place.

I think parents should be refusing to let their kids play these games or at least refusing to pay extra. The companies should absolutely be free to offer these games - It's your choice to consume their products. They're not holding a gun to anyone's head.

That doesn't mean much when they're already illegal at the federal level thanks to Trump.

Because teachers have no control over discipline. Whip the administrative staff who don't do their jobs and the parents who send feral children to school and expect the state to raise their kids. ;)

I mean.... if he were joking it'd be pretty damn funny.

It's also pretty interesting that the sanctuary cities don't want them. Was declaring themselves to be sanctuary cities just virtue signalling? It seems kind of hypocritical.

Reading over this, i don't see an expected time frame. If this is anticipated to occur within the next five years, it's a problem. If it's expected to occur over the next fifty years, then it's not a big deal.

This looks like clickbait BS.

Yeah, I'll take a hard pass on that level of authoritarian nightmare. My body - My choice.

I'm not against vaccination - I'm for not pissing away what few rights we have left to a government that will abuse that power.

I see your point in that her sex shouldn't matter, but I do think it's nice that she's getting credit for the fruits of her research instead of the usual " some scientists made this breakthrough". It's my understanding that her input on this project was instrumental in it's success, so I'm happy to see her receive credit for her work. Good for her.

The feds have come to Chicago—with a van that tracks guns by dcjogger in news

"Despite the tech upgrade, in the three weeks that the van has spent in the Windy City, it hasn’t helped police make any arrests, according to the department Superintendent Eddie Johnson."

The science that goes into ballistics testing is suspect as hell already, and the article openly admits that they haven't helped the police... So this is a waste of taxpayer money.....

Good job, ATF. Way to remain useless in anything other than giving guns to Mexican Cartels and shooting people's dogs.

‘Kingkiller Chronicle’ author Patrick Rothfuss says Book 3 is ‘moving forward,’ but not fast. by rain in Fantasy

Did anyone else think the first book read like it was written by a neckbeard with an unhealthy view on romantic relationships?

Kvothe doesn't really struggle against anything because he's just soooooo smart and talented. Then his romantic interest consistantly shits on him, but he's always there because he's just a real super understanding white knight.

Rothfuss's world building is great, but his characters amd story are lacking.
