Democratic Underground - benEzra's Journal benEzra's Journal Thu, 29 Sep 2016 09:18:44 Thu, 29 Sep 2016 09:18:44 Thank you. We agree on something. That's a start. Thu, 29 Sep 2016 00:19:21 The prohibitionists have certainly tried. Wed, 28 Sep 2016 00:25:14 The FBI just released the murder stats for 2015. Tue, 27 Sep 2016 01:18:21 The FBI just released the murder stats for 2015. Tue, 27 Sep 2016 01:07:45 Some data on which bullets hit the most people was just released today... Tue, 27 Sep 2016 00:17:01 It's not a question of pacifism vs. fear, Thu, 22 Sep 2016 03:58:56 Chicago has long had one of the lowest rates of legal gun ownership in the United States. Sun, 18 Sep 2016 01:24:09 Thoughts... Sun, 18 Sep 2016 01:16:07 The F-22 *could* be available for export. If the F-35 can be sold to Japan and other nations, Sat, 17 Sep 2016 14:56:25 That's the development cost amortized over only 187 airframes, plus unit production cost. Sat, 17 Sep 2016 14:45:02 F-22 production *was* ended on the premise that the F-35 could also handle the air-superiority role. Sat, 17 Sep 2016 14:41:08 This isn't a toy; you may be thinking of plastic-pellet-shooting Airsoft guns, Sat, 17 Sep 2016 14:27:34 Actual BB guns aren't toys. Airsoft plastic-pellet guns *can* be toys, but aren't always. Sat, 17 Sep 2016 14:13:52 Are you seriously proposing to ban BB guns, or is that a rhetorical question? Sat, 17 Sep 2016 14:04:37 That's pretty much what Carrie Nation said to people who liked to have wine with dinner. Wed, 14 Sep 2016 23:35:21 You'd be happier if rifles with straight stocks had been used instead? Or handguns? Wed, 14 Sep 2016 23:26:29 A mass murder by a state-licensed security guard authorized to carry contractor-owned weapons Tue, 13 Sep 2016 23:51:12 The military doesn't use civilian non-automatics like those, except in very specialized roles. Tue, 13 Sep 2016 23:45:22 Most AR-15's are .22's, hence are underpowered for hunting anything but small game. Tue, 13 Sep 2016 23:37:17 And some people wonder why Dem and indie gun owners feel alienated from the party? Tue, 13 Sep 2016 23:26:35 Sheer ignorance, or intentional deception. AR-15-type rifles weren't banned 1994-2004. Mon, 12 Sep 2016 20:39:09 Actually, hollowpoints are legal in NJ. THe rest of your post stands, though. Wed, 07 Sep 2016 21:29:07 Hollowpoints aren't banned in NJ (or to my knowledge, anywhere else). Wed, 07 Sep 2016 21:22:56 iGun says they won't introduce it until mandates are off the table. Wed, 07 Sep 2016 21:07:10 Uh, yes. I just checked. Jonathan Mossberg runs a small startup (iGun), not O.F. Mossberg. Wed, 07 Sep 2016 20:38:14
