  1. I fully acknowledge that I'm not an expert on...

    I fully acknowledge that I'm not an expert on guns. I never claimed to be, and instead asked you the question. There's no need for you to be snotty about where I live.

    I am, however, an expert...
  2. It matters because I am having trouble conceiving...

    It matters because I am having trouble conceiving of any legitimate necessity to own the weapons that are most commonly used in mass killings, especially semi-automatic hand guns.

    People were...
  3. In the rural area where you live, who needs, and...

    In the rural area where you live, who needs, and for what purpose, high-caliber hand guns, semi-automatic or automatic weapons, or accessories designed to conceal or rapidly reload weapons?
  4. I currently live in Washington DC. In the past,...

    I currently live in Washington DC. In the past, I've lived on the East Coast, in Wisconsin, and in California.

    And where do you live where "everyone" owns and uses guns, and for what necessary...
  5. The primary purpose of a car is to transport. I...

    The primary purpose of a car is to transport. I can tolerate that there are unintended consequences and sometimes, something that is used for a very productive function instead -- intentionally or...

    And now we've gone to great lengths to make sure that box cutters don't get on airplanes.

    I hope you see how ridiculous and absurd it is to invoke the Holocaust in this conversation, since...

    And that is exactly why it should be a hell of a lot harder than it is now to get a gun!
  8. Hate speech is prohibited because it incites...

    Hate speech is prohibited because it incites violence or promotes prejudice against legally-protected individuals and groups, typically those who have been the target of violence or discrimination in...

    I'm pretty confident that the percent of pressure cookers used in murders is lower than the percent of guns used in murders. Pretending that guns and pressure cookers are equivalent is disingenuous....

    Sure it would be a tragedy. But guns facilitate mass casualties. Knives or fists or clubs can be used in assaults, but they kill fewer people. There is no simple solution. Background checks,...

    A really big friggin difference between stellaroo and the shooter is that she hasn't killed anyone, so you really might want to rethink that statement!
  12. This guy got his guns and his ammunition legally....

    This guy got his guns and his ammunition legally. So did the gunman in the 2012 Colorado theater shootings. The weapons used in Newton were also purchased legally. I do not dispute that there are...

    I am really not sure how Mrs. Clinton and the Lewinsky affair became part of this discussion, but if we are going there, let's just note that now all three of the Republicans who lead the impeachment...

    I am so sorry to hear this. What a loss for her family, and for the many communities to which she was a valued, loved contributor.

    I prefer Cutter stick repellent (30 percent DEET). I won't use the 100% DEET stuff on my skin -- watching it melt a plastic poncho was enough to convince me to take the warning on the bottle...

    The question is whether the current formula for credit scores does a good job of predicting loan repayment or not. If the formula excludes people who would actually repay loans and manage credit...

    The whole point of fixed costs is that they are not incurred on a per-passenger basis. To have even one passenger, you have to pay the fixed costs. The cost of the first passenger is therefore very...

    I don't see how the cost per passenger or subsidy per passenger is the relevant metric for determining whether or not marginal cost pricing is viable. And the thing about fixed costs is that it...

    Because, economics. Most railroad infrastructure is a public good. And there are low marginal costs but high fixed costs. Marginal cost pricing (the result of competitive markets) is not a...

    I don't know in Canada. In the US, the EEOC website says the following: (from http://www.eeoc.gov/facts/ada18.html) So, it sounds like an employer would be able to ask the question you propose. ...

    What an unpleasant experience for your daughter. The counselor was certainly in the wrong -- whether legally in addition to ethically, I am not qualified to answer. However, one thing stands out to...
