Re: Muting threads

It is great that "Politics" is off the front page by default. If people really want to talk politics here (there are already plenty of other places for political discussion on the web) they will find it.

Re: It started with a kiss...

I guess it depends, doesn't it? If you move in slowly giving the person time to react, then that is OK. If you reach out and hold their head in a vice-like grip whilst you move in for a kiss it is probably not OK. :P I don't know why there are only two possible options - something is either "left" o...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

It is not about whataboutism. It is about showing a consistent approach to balancing individual freedoms with public safety. It makes no sense at all to highlight a single aspect of risk and restrict it to the nth degree whilst maintaining a light touch elsewhere, for no reason other than you have ...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

Pretty much all of you are idiots. The 2nd amendment was created to stop a tyrannical government (which the USA currently has) from buttfucking the people. It "seems" like the population wants no guns because, guess what and no fucking surprise, the media is controlled by the bad guys. The NRA is n...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

You also created a nice strawman there too by suggesting that I was arguing that bringing in UK style gun laws to the US would suddenly change the US into the UK. I suggested no such thing. I love that logic! So if strong gun laws can only prevent 98% of gun related deaths (USA - 11.96 per 100K, UK...

Re: America kinda sucks

In fairness to Croak Halal meat is widely considered to be unnecessarily cruel. Not just by the usual suspects like Peta, but also the RSPCA, the British Veterinary Association, and the majority of authorities regarding animal welfare. Regardless of the original intent of Halal butchery, it is no l...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

You've misunderstood the logic, flash. The argument is that strict gun controls does not eliminate gun massacres and we shouldn't pretend it will. Your figures are also bunk for a variety of reasons. A couple of which being that there has never been a significant gun culture in the UK regardless of...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

Jamie, I think you've been watching too much sci-fi, mate. In what way do you envision any regime maintaining order over its population with nukes? I think you have a rather prejudiced view against gun owners. Still, even if they have not read Plato it will have had influence over them, as it has o...

And it is almost sad that I have to say this, but by me pointing out the media in what I just posted, I am not trying to 'detract' from the gun-banning discussion. I am commenting on what I feel perpetuates the mass shooting violence in America that gets everyone riled up. The assumption that you a...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

flash, the number of countries that have severely limited access to guns is extremely long: pretty much every rich country but the US at this point. So, yes, banning is entirely feasible. The alcohol anology just shows how little you understand about gun control policy. you're just exposing your ig...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

Worcej wasn't saying that there should be no regulations on guns. He was saying that guns being fun is a good reason not to ban them. You are not responding in good faith to his point. Just because it is "fun" doesn't justify the damage they causes. Fireworks are also a lot of fun (I had a lot of f...

Re: Yet another needless mass shooting

To be honest, there is virtually never a good answer given to why we should have guns. Anything that kills 35,000 people a year better have a damned better justification than "because it's fun...."
