I had a hard time with the inclusion of Radagast given the omission of Bombadil from LOTR. Plus the fact that they made Radagast an imbecile (with sweet bowstaff skills). Saruman looks like he died 12 years ago.
I often encounter people who let their animals suffer because they can’t afford vet bills. Some even underfeed or feed improper food because they can’t afford proper feed. My response is if you can’t afford to feed them or treat them, then you can’t afford to have them. People can’t afford birth control? Seriously? If [...]
FT: The term assault weapon does not have one rigid meaning, but I am using the term in what I think is the generally accepted usage: A semi-automatic rifle with military design and/or features. Yes, people can hunt with assault weapons, just as they can hunt with 9mm pistols, but I don’ think it is [...]
What I don’t get is the demand for AR-15 skyrocketing. Who says to themselves: “wow, an AR-15 was just used to slaughter 26 people, I’d better get one!” Now of course that isn’t what they said to themselves. Most likely they said: “since the AR-15 was just used to slaughter 26 people, the government will [...]
Jason: I agree with you that this is primarily a people problem. I’ve asked this more than once: What is going on in this country? Why do we seem to have such a surplus of crazed homicidal maniacs? As Kent pointed out, people used to take guns to school. We’ve always had ready access to [...]
You really think this guy chose this school because it was gun-free? Correction: Assault weapon
When your victims are unarmed, you have time to reload. My point is that this kid had X amount of time. He killed himself when the authorities arrived. In X amount of time, you can kill a lot more people with a high capacity assault rifle than with a pistol.
If there is no justification for restricting access to semiautomatic assault weapons, what is the justification for restricting access to fully automatic weapons?
And a guy charging into a school can kill lots of kids quickly if even has a small gun and a small clip. I don’t agree. I’m sure there may be some radical anti-gun nuts out there who want to use this opportunity to ban all guns, but that isn’t going to happen. But I’m [...]
Since the unborn are the neediest among us, it is a false dichotomy. However I am perfectly willing to say that abortion is worse than not caring for the needy, although the former is pretty specific and the latter is pretty vague. Ask a homeless person whether he would rather be hungry and cold, or [...]
