  2. Gun Legislation, Crime and Events

    Hi, leaning over your back fence again, offering helpful, unsolicited advice. I believe that what your framers of the amendment certainly meant was that every citizen had the right to bear a muzzle-loading musket. Unfortunately they did not express it that way, but imagine how your society would have changed if they had. I shouldn't be in here. I don't live in your country, and I have no place in your debate about private citizens owning military assault weapons, or school shooters using their mom's weapons to murder random elementary school girls and boys. All I can say is that the approach to gun ownership is, I think, the singular defining characteristic of the United States that bewilders the citizens of every other Western democracy. The rest of us have long since given up trying to understand it, it cannot be explained to us.

    who are you going to replace him with?

    this reminds me. You know that Egyptian Islamic Jihad started as a spiritual response (mystical reasons were the only explanation) for the Arab defeat in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Also that Hitler in the bunker was told repeatedly by Goebbels that some miracle would pull the Nazi fat out of the fire. Less evidence based than say an unimpeachable prosecutorial team and a growing consensus among the public that Trump is a danger to himself and others

    Matthews made it look easy. As if he was just toying with the Wings for 59 1/2 minutes. I remember those type of days.

    [record scratch] this is gonna be good.
  7. Gun Legislation, Crime and Events

    That is my question too.

    9/12 sacks were in 3 games against some pretty weak matchups. The rest of the games he was not some unreplacable factor. For they money it will take to re-sign him there is much better value with less injury risk.

    They would lose too much talent. Someone's going to give him the contract. Lions need to keep him. Plug more hole with lesser players? Been there done that.

    Bottom line is this, most of the rest of us don't believe that your right to a gun of any kind is more important than keeping the rest of us safe - the 2nd amendment can go to **** for all we care. So yes, you are perfectly correct in your fear that when regulation comes it may well leave the current interpretation of the 2A completely neutered. And when that happens, public safety will be the primary consideration, not the afterthought, and your residual right to own a weapon for sport or hunting will look like does in the rest of the civilized world - which is going to be fine with the rest of us. And we will be a better nation for it happening soon. I have come to the point where I simply have no patience to entertain the idea the right to shoot firearms for sport and entertainment has any moral standing whatsoever as compared to the loss of life that 'right' produces. Any who stand on the 2nd amendment as an excuse to justify 30k deaths a year has crossed over into some kind of moral bankruptcy.
  11. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Yes, as an average voter, I can say that I've never cut payola deals with foreign governments, ****** an intern in the oval office and I've never been involved in the indictment of a formal presidential candidate. So from that standpoint, I quite literally have nothing in common with any of them.

    You're assuming he was charged based on evidence that was accurate.
  13. Gun Legislation, Crime and Events

    You completely dodged the question specific to military style weaponry. I can see a line in between that and common hunting guns. I agree the FBI ****** up in this situation. I agree with you about parenting these days. Just explain to me why a common citizen needs a military style weapon. I just want want to hear that rationale, specific to military style armory.

    Remarkable story
  15. Mark Ingram, worth going after?

    Ronny Rivers not available?
  16. Detroit Lions 2018 Free Agency

    Almost 17 million last year to franchise a DE. That would mean losing a ton a flexibility. I think the money could be better spent and the Lions would get much more value and plug more holes.

    Mike Flynn has already plead guilty. That conviction isn't going anywhere

    Scott is welcome to confirm that we are different people. I do know him though, hence his user name. But you won't believe that. Racking up sacks against Flowers. Shouldn't get you a 5 year deal. Ansah is seemingly never healthy. He has talent, I get that. But given the fact you are already paying a lot of money to some players do the Lions really need to invest in an injury prone player.
  19. Detroit Lions 2018 Free Agency

    Franchise him for this year. Nothing more.

    Took me a minute to unravel that bit of logic. Well done.

    A few years ago I looked into the possibility of permanently moving to another country. After hearing this, I wish I would have.
  22. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    Dude, he pled guilty already.

    The British Government probably thought Benedict Arnold was vindicated.

    lol Rondell wasn't a very good GM for the blacks. He gave up Condeelezza Rice for nothing and took back OJ. Plus, Tiger turned out to be a bust of a #1 pick.
  25. Pretty fun game between leafs and wings. Matthews scores with 30 secs left to give leafs 3-2 win. Glendening had a nice game. He has been linked to the leafs last few days. Personally, I'd pass, good game none the less.
