Guns should have the same restrictions as cars.
Owners must be of age, have had training, and passed testing to get a license.
Then, registration and insurance are required. Any major violation or enough minor violations and you can lose your right to own a gun for a period of time (similar to speeding tickets) or go to jail (similar to DUI).
Failure to follow these rules would result in fines, jail and/or confiscation of the gun.
The NRA will argue that guns are a right, not a privilege; sane people will argue that not being murdered is also a right and there is no undue burden to treating guns like cars.
I wrote the local paper when the news broke about Scott Adams full-throated racist attack. I wasn't sure what response I would get, but this was waiting in my inbox this morning:
Thank you for contacting The State.
The State is dropping the Dilbert comic strip from our pages after recent comments by its creator, Scott Adams. Mr. Adams is free to share his views as he sees fit, but we will not allow our platform to be used by those who espouse hatred and bigotry. Our readers deserve better. We all deserve better.
Stupendously stupid comment.
After he gave Biden a letter with solutions to the border situation, he blasted Biden for waiting so long to visit there.
His statement was, and this is a near quote, that Biden should have come to the border on day one to work on the problem that he had created.
I guess POTUS does have superhuman powers if he could create all those problems in just the first few hours after his inauguration.
Dear GOP friends:
The vote by the starving survivors in a lifeboat of who will be eaten is also an example of democracy, but it is neither a process to be proud of, nor an appealing sight to observe.
I just realized that 2022 could mark the end of Trump, Alex Jones and Elon Musk.
Thats what I call a great year.
This is in reference to Twitter, and the NAACP and other groups calling for a boycott of advertisers.
If companies are supposed to wait until they see a small drop in sales and assume that it may be related to their Twitter ads, the boycott wont be effective.
Instead, keep a template to cut and paste for companies you see on there and send an email to their PR or Marketing department. A suggestion:
My spouse and I are planning to buy new (xxx) this month. We are honoring the general boycott of Twitter advertisers until the site establishes sensible content moderation and wont be considering (your company). If you decide to withdraw your Twitter ads, please let me know so I can consider your product again.
Please smile and cheer. A victory for our side.
The provision to remove the rape and incest exemptions from the abortion ban passed out of two Senate Committees, 7-4 and 9-8. In both cases, two and then three Republicans, and every one of the Democrats, chose not to vote against it because both sides know it cannot pass the full Senate without those exemptions.
So, a classic poison pill that will doom the full bill when it comes up for a vote, and then they can get to work on the next version. Several GOP leaders even grudgingly commended the Democrats for their underhanded, but successful, use of the process to stop the bill.
And the best response was some haggard looking MAGA loon saying that the liberal Democrats were responsible for the no exemptions ban because they would not agree to any compromises.
Somebody just posted that Jesus' miracle of blessing the fishes and loaves and feeding the crowd was a slap in the face to everyone who had brought their own lunch.
Wanted to get a "Vote Democrat, we're not perfect but they are nuts" sticker. Every site I have found either has terrible independent reviews or the majority of their products are right-wing crap.
On edit: If any of you aren't familiar with this forum, it took me a while to find it, but it offers products from fellow DUers. It is located in the "Economy and Education" topic.
