In other words, live your life in constant fear of being shot.



Pretty soon the NRA will say it's your fault any time you're shot outside of your home.

At what point did the hunk of metal become a “gun”?


A gun begins at conception.

I wouldn't expect the tech on 3d printers to be static for very long. Could be completely different in 3-5 years.

Though I also think the homemade version just isn't going to compare to the fully manufactured version in terms of sales and usage. Convenience is a big deal.

One thing the 3d guns do is give the pro-gun types an argument that you can't do anything about it, so why try and regulate guns at all? A more extreme version of the "if you want a gun you can get a gun" argument.

What you are kind of saying has to do with intellectual property. The reason we can't download movies and music any more for free is because the companies that own the IP pushed for crackdowns on that stuff and started charging. Is there some company somewhere (Armalite?) that is getting screwed by all these people making their own guns, that is going to want to crack down on people downloading guns for 3D printing?

In Fox news defense, the shooter is apparently not an illegal immigrant...

He isn't a "mentally unstable" white guy either....

Impossible to parody

NRATV puts KKK hood on Thomas the Tank Engine in attempt to make point about diversity
Quote:
DANA LOESCH (HOST): Thomas the Tank is now bringing gender balance to the show by adding girl trains. Seriously. One of those trains, Nia, will be from Kenya to add ethnic diversity to the show. And -- which that by the way, that’s where it gets really strange to me because I’ve looked at Thomas and Friends, at their pictures, and I see gray and blue. Am I to understand this entire time that Thomas and his trains were white? Because they all have gray faces. How do you bring ethnic diversity? I mean they had to paint, what I guess they thought was some sort of African pattern on the side of Nia’s engine? How do you bring ethnic diversity to a show that literally has no ethnicities because they're trains. They don't even have skin pigmentation. Where -- was there some concern that the show had racist undertones? Because, Sir Topham Hatt clearly is white, but the trains? I mean, I’m looking at this picture and I’m really, really struggling to understand how in the world there isn’t any diversity in any of this. Oh, was it because, I see it. It was the white hoods. And the burning train tracks. OK, fine, fair point. Fair. I get it. Thomas the Tank Engine has been a blight on race relations for far too long. Clearly this is overdue. Right?

If he was walking in to your home like he owned it, he deserved to get shot!
