Knowing me....? Probly not :lol:

Didn't see anything that struck me as partisan or biased/intentionally misleading but I think typically people outside of the US tend to oversimplify (what we in the US perceive to be) the complexity of the issue. Best way to say it is that I agree with your logic but not your conclusion.

Honestly I didn't disagree with what most of what Meow said either, just argued against 1 point really...like I said-its complicated enough without people trying to overcomplicate it even more.

Its a tough conversation to have because there's no basis for comparison. No country approaches our ownership rate and states laws are hard to use due to flow from one state to the next, wildly different population/ownership densities, etc..

mass shootings/killings since 2010
CA = 18 (0.00000048)

US = 115 (0.00000035)

AUS = 17 (0.00000069)

US has 4x more guns than CA but 6.5x more mass shootings/murders

CA has 2x(+) more guns than Australia but roughly same amount of mass shootings/murders...so the math ain't too clean and mass murders/shooting per capita only bolster this point further.

So, like I said, I think 'just have less guns' skirts over a lot of contributing social factors and tends to ignore some of the core arguments gun advocates use (defense against tyrannical gov. for example) but I understand the general logic used behind the reasoning and the supply&demand reference.

Per capita death by gun rates (in relation to these 3 countries specifically) kind of bolster your point but that doesn't count out accidents/suicides. Odds of drowning go up when there are more pools around but that isn't a reason to ban pools is it?

If you've ever seen the Jim Jeffries routine I'm in the "I like guns" crowd....your arguments could very well be right in the end but I would rather try to solve what I perceive to be the contributing social/structural factors before taking all the guns away. I think the idea is to keep guns away from these fuckin psychopaths, first and foremost.

Canada has more registered firearms than the U.S. ...cuz we have damn near 400 million unregistered firearms down here :lol: seem's like there are some pretty easy/non problematic loopholes to close before we go full ban but thats just my opinion.

I think the incredible hulk should be played by an actor/Bruce Banner version that's transitioning from a man to a woman and instead of just gamma radiation overdoses making him the hulk he also has an overdose of estrogen. Whenever someone misgenders him he screams out "IT'S MA'AM!" before turning green and smashing everything in sight while ranting about the patriarchy, proper pronouns and toxic masculinity.

Bernie Sanders Holds Secret Campaign Meeting With 15,000 Working-Class Democratic Donors


DETROIT—Releasing bombshell evidence in the form of hundreds of cell phone videos taken during the gathering, numerous anonymous tipsters confirmed this week that Bernie Sanders recently attended a secret campaign meeting with 15,000 working-class donors from the Democratic Party. “This damning footage shows Sen. Sanders clandestinely mingling with thousands of representatives from the nursing, food service, and public education sectors, many of whom were apparently chauffeured to the event aboard city buses and enjoyed fountain drinks upon arriving,” said political strategist August Buckminster, adding that the event, which reportedly took place at a local vocational school, could prove problematic for the presidential candidate in his bid for the Democratic nomination. “Sanders can be heard promising a highly underprivileged audience everything from a minimum-wage increase to healthcare access to educational opportunities—whatever it takes to get them on his side. In one video, he explicitly offers a group of steel workers a quid pro quo of affordable housing in exchange for their votes. If the senator wants to win the backing of the national party, he will certainly have to answer for hobnobbing with this room full of people at the absolute lowest levels of power.” At press time, Sanders had received further criticism after documents were uncovered showing he has acted on behalf of a contingent of approximately 625,000 Vermont residents over a period of nearly 30 years.

You sir should be a detective. You’re spot on as usual. I copied and pasted it from my twitter account, deleted all references to The Onion and posted it without ever realizing that it was in fact from the very site I deleted all reference to.

Well played you bum. :tup:

Kentucky ranks #39 in hispanic population. Texas is number 3.

If Kentucky is going blue because of its hispanic population then there are 38 other states that should be blue (according to you).

Shiiit Texas should be further left than CA!

You don't have to believe stupid shit KOP...its a choice man-you're better than this.
