    Roe v. Wade is going down

    What the court did, was say that the prior cases by the Court basically created new legislation from the judicial branch that created a new right to privacy that wasn't in the Constitution, and the court didn't have the authority to create that law or to decide what should apply to 300,000,000...

    Don gone, too?

    The Jazz should take trade offers make the team better, and get players that make a good squad. Anyone should be tradeable. If they get a really attractive package for Don or Rudy, they should take one or both. I don't see this squad doing much in the playoffs, and Rudy and Don won't do it...

    Snyder to step down - Woj

    A good offense works even when a team knows it is coming. It is what I loved about UCLA. So many options resulting in efficient basketball. And as I've said before, Quin's offense largely let the opponents stand around essentially getting rest. I want to see something with more off ball cuts and...

    They should make all high capacity firearms (think 30 round AR-15s) fall under the NFA (questions remain from Heller as to whether "common use" would disallow such a law). Require a $200 fee with enhanced background check and registration. Have to get advanced permission to carry across state...

    U.S. tort laws generally protect manufacturers (not just gun makers) if their product is not defective, proper warnings are given and advertisements or instructions do not cause misuse. Democrats had the idea a long time ago to bankrupt gun manufacturers with frivilous lawsuits, which led to...

    What makes Tom Cruise such a great actor is the fact that he has no Thetans in his body.

    With the way some of my short-tempered teachers were treated by certain students, and how those teachers responded, the last thing I'd want is any teacher having a gun. I don't trust cops with guns either. Everyone is human.

    Sounds like you work with idjits. I have never worked with anyone like that. I own a large number of guns but have never taken pictures of them. The people I shoot with are largely the same. I mostly shoot for fun, hunting very rarely these days. Like anything, the silent majority of gun owners...

    Buffalo Shooting

    I have hunted small game with both my 5.56 AR and .300 blackout with suppressor using subsonic ammo (no ear protection needed). There are over 20 million AR15s in circulation in the U.S. Many are target or competitive shooters or enthusiasts. Most realize a semi-auto rifle won't really protect...

    I'm already for having a minimum 3 day background check for everyone. States shoukd do their own check as well, as states and fed databases don't always link. My point is, being of age and purchasing guns and ammo shouldn't be a red flag by itself. If we aren't going to treat 18 year olds...

    Buffalo Shooting

    Ammo is sometimes hard to come by. I have purchased cases at a time. Literally thousands of rounds at a time. I've also purchased a large # of guns. A gun purchase along with ammo should not raise red flags alone, but this kid had enough events that better mental health programs in schools...

    There needs to be background checks, including mental health checks on every purchase. Right now in most states private parties can sell to other private parties with no check. And once you have a background check, the database should be re-reviewed regularly for red flags. I hate kids being...
