Gun Legislation

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Don't worry, I've already got a real nice condo on the 10th. floor; I don't need to move into your head.
It appears it's already overpopulated in there anyway. :lol: :lol:

There probably are some people, and Leo may be one of them, whose picture of a "spanking" is a flat hand hitting a kid's butt just hard enough to be uncomfortable, and enough to make the experience humiliating. This may be followed by a clear statement of why the kid was "spanked" and what s/he did wrong, hopefully getting a promise out of the kid not to do it again, and wrapped up with a hug and a "I love you." Sure, it's hard to say that if that's all there was to it that it would be likely to harm anybody. Unfortunately, that's not a universal vision of the practice and a lot of people like to use the "spanking" concept to justify a beating. If the experience makes the kid afraid of the parent, it's harmful. If the kid is injured, it's harmful. If the kid gets the idea that violence is a good answer to disapproval, it's harmful. If the kid gets the idea that force is the best way to get somebody to do something, it's harmful.
You started out well, then you blew it out of proportion.
I understand why you'd say that. The first part is probably close to how you imagine it. The second part is unfortunately how it is a lot of the time. Why is this? Because corporal punishment isn't all that common anymore. Lots of parents don't do it, most schools aren't allowed to do it and the ones who are are afraid to do it. So who's left? The lesser educated people who don't know or care that there are better ways to treat their kids. And those who mistakenly think that if they got knocked around when they were a kid, then they should knock their kids around.

That's what they say. There's only one moving part in an outside A/C unit and that's the fan.
Considering a badly bent blade, the noise would have been constant. An exploding capacitor would make noise only one time.

School shootings are horrible enough. Thinking about the thousands or millions of people that are brought to tears by the possibility of a school shooting that doesn't directly affect them makes me want to cry.
Nurses, surgeons fire back at NRA with pictures of gun trauma: '#ThisIsMyLane'

Just days after a single gunman took the lives of 12 at a bar in Thousand Oaks, Calif., the National Rifle Association sent an angry tweet Thursday suggesting that the medical community stay out of the gun debate. “Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane. Half of the articles in Annals of Internal Medicine are pushing for gun control,” wrote the NRA. “Most upsetting, however, the medical community seems to have consulted NO ONE but themselves.”

On Saturday, nurses, doctors, and emergency medical services who have spent years trying to save the lives of gun violence victims launched a viral campaign in response: “#ThisIsMyLane.” ...
More so in Oakland than here, but that was MyLane, too.

Argument over NFL anthem kneeling leads to father shooting son on Thanksgiving

Notice that this would be exactly like millions of other homes on Thanksgiving EXCEPT that someone added a gun to the mix.

"Different family members were asked to leave and patio furniture was thrown.

Eventually, that led to the 21-year-old son throwing a water bottle at Lamadrid. The water bottle hit Lamadrid in the face, causing him to squeeze the trigger on his shotgun, he told police."




If my family (2 sisters) got together for Thanksgiving, they didn't invite me.

My lack of attention to fox - in every room - is rude.

Everybody tries to get a gimmick. Hooter girls got hooters, Heart Attack cafe girls wear scrubs, Rifle girls got guns. Hope nobody gets shot because of it.

Lady O and I stayed close to Rifle on the way up the back side. Not surprising this would go over well there. Probably not as well in Denver.

Hell, that place is perfect for my planned trip out west. There's a local gun shop here named Gunslingers (clever, eh?) and they have a special on the Taurus G2 something or other for $199.95 and if I moseyed on down there and got two of them I would be all set to stop by that there Colorado diet place. I would prefer to enter the place with a Saga AA-12 automatic shotgun but I figure that'd be presumptuous.
