    lol.. I used those words, right? I just don't like to spin anything. It is what it is.

    DC has a very high murder and crime rate. Gangs and poverty are pretty bad there too. Curious to see the stats on how many of those deaths were from legally registered owner firearms. My guess? Not the majority.

    If my guess is correct, it negates the purpose of gun control laws IMO.

    Was going to reply earlier, but DC has had its murder rate despite the fact that (until DC v. Heller was decided) it had some of the most strict regulations in the country.

    Even more reason to show there's no real correlation that stricter gun control lessens violence.

    Look at this, no weapons involved, but just look at the culture that perpetuates crime and violence.
    Whoops.

    I've blatantly stolen a bike myself in plain daylight.. and had it done to me too. It all sucks. I don't know wtf stops it, other than my own personal sense of responsibility.

    Funnily, the guy I stole that bike from is my friend now. If he gets drunk enough, he'll remind of it... (as he should)

    Not taking any sides on this. Where should we draw the line? Should citizens have the right to own artillery? Missiles? Nuclear weapons? Biological weapons?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I think the lines currently drawn are pretty good.
