Re: At an *elementary* school???

Sigh. I wrote several responses and lost them when I had to log in again.

I trust you know me well enough not conclude that my silence implies surrender. But if you would like to concede your...

Re: At an *elementary* school???

I think what many do with their arguments about guns is to remove the will from the actor and put it on the instrument. They discourse as though the gun will kill people of some secret volition it...

Re: At an *elementary* school???

Other than your concealment argument, you are completely wrong. Your car has no idea whether it is being used by a licensed driver. It follows the commands of the person who operates it. A...

Re: At an *elementary* school???

I am not talking about ease of lethality of firearms in general, vs automobiles in general. Clearly there is a reason why soldiers carry firearms in combat and not automobiles. I said no one is in...

Re: At an *elementary* school???

No one is in any more or less danger from my concealed firearm than they are from my idling automobile or my pocketed multi tool. If I am negligent and allow children to play with them, I am at...

Re: At an *elementary* school???

I will try, if the question is asked in earnest. First, though, we dont know why Veronica carried. Accepting someone else's conclusion about Veronicas motive is fraught with error.

Re: At an *elementary* school???

Well it does matter if your starting point is that these events are increasing and that some federal solution is required.



I am a gun owner. The primary reason I own them is for my personal...

Re: At an *elementary* school???

I guess I would call it most of those things except unbelievable. I still don't have any idea what number is "normal" for the first six months of any given year. In fact, I don't think anyone knows...

Re: At an *elementary* school???

Blue,

My point exactly. Your cited blog post talks about "mass shootings". I asked why the 31st "firearms attack" at a US school was unbelievable. Those aren't interchangeable notions.

Re: At an *elementary* school???

Why is this unbelievable to you?

Using your definition of "firearms attack at a U.S. school" is 31 as a percentage of total schools, higher or lower than it was by June 10 in 2013, 2010, 2000,...

Re: Politics, etc.

I hit a paywall also.

I disagree with Blue about whether what President Obama is doing is the same as previous Presidents. The difference is one of degree. Like his use of a drone to execute a...

Re: Politics, etc.

Re: Happy Holidays !!

I had high hopes for Christie on a national stage. The fact that he is involved in this nonsense in any fashion is enough to turn me off. He either knew or ought to have known and I can't find it in...

Re: Countering Ex's Venom & Lies

She gave them a lot of false information to which I would simply say, "Not true," if asked. And I would leave it at that. It wasn't easy not to try to convince them or offer alternatives. I didn't...

Re: Update

College aged kids is turning out to be a great time of parenting for me, I hope it is for you.

The increasing number of quiet nights are good also ;) after so many years of chaos, eh?

Re: I find myself back here.. really confused.

I am sorry you are going through this. I have nothing to add. I don't think the split time plan is good or workable unless it is just stage 1 of separation and divorce.

I saw #10.

I maintain my argument and I think the advocates over at MoJo have guarenteed a spot for themselves in the Hell reserved for those who misuse statistics.

Re: Boston Marathon, Terrorism, Police Powers and the Public Good

Your argument about preventive and detective controls has misidentified gun legislation as a preventive control. It isn't. At best it is a detective control, and a poor one at that.
