- can we please stop calling the rich the "those most fortunate"
- re: gun laws. i dont really care about them to be perfectly honest. but after the shooting at that gay superhero movie people were saying we need new gun laws and conservatives thinking they were being smart and clever said: "BUT YOU SEE, it was illegal to have a gun in the theater in the first place! gun laws wont work because people will just break them!" or variations thereof.
ok here was laws are. social engineering. its not the law that KEEPS someone from doing the thing the law is against. the law gives law enforcement a mandate to PREVENT people from acquiring the MEANS to do it, whatever those means may be. gun laws are not going to stop people from shooting guns, they are going to make it harder for people to get and keep guns or certain types of guns. thats the point of laws. not that i care about gun laws really, the us' violence problem is a cultural thing. easy availability of guns is a FACTOR but i dont think a MAJOR one.
ok thats it.
