Comes off as a condescending prick
Babushka is grandmother but okay.
^What a travesty! Here you have a gun that was taken from the lawful purchaser (Adam Lanza's mother) after she was murdered by her son, yet the manufacturer makes a de facto confession of liability with this settlement. I thought the maker would have been protected by the Lawful Commerce in Firearms Protection Act. Remington has been on the ropes financially, anyway.
quelle surprise!"Stand-your-ground" laws were associated with a nationwide 11% increase in homicides, according to a study published Monday in JAMA Network Open.www.upi.com
The funniest thing for me is seeing cops who are under 21 who have to get their friends to purchase their ammo for them so they can shoot their service weapon at the police range.^This whole business of relegating young people between 18 and 21 to second-class citizenship has always seemed horribly inconsistent to me. Back when we gave 18-year-olds the vote in the 1970s, a major rationale was that if young men could be drafted at that age, they deserved some say in public policy. This struck me as fair enough at the time. However, we ended the draft shortly thereafter. In any event, people between the ages of 18 and 21 are in curious legal limbo: They have the franchise, historically the fullest measure of citizenship, but they are forbidden (in many jurisdictions, anyway) from enjoying certain rights like buying liquor or firearms that are frequently open to aliens. I gather that in certain circles there is a move to lower the voting age to 16. God help us all! I am consoled by the fact that at my age I don't have to endure too many more years of this nonsense.
