This falls under the intellectual discourse heading. That is just an euphemism for B.Sing. To tell you my latest dumb sh%% thing I did I have to tell a little about why I did it. I am almost legally…Continue
"No but I can honestly say that justice was served in one case and still has the ability in the other case.
In the case of the juvenile Justice was served. Here is a cut and paste explanation of juvy verses criminal court. "One of…"
"I think guns in the wrong hands are bad. We can't really keep them out of the bad people's hands though. I just don't think that keeping them out of good guys hands is the right answer. When you need a gun in an emergency…"
"To which situation are you referring, the kid or the bank? It is 2 different things. Both, I think, were handled correctly by the Judge. You did not specify what you think would have been a better judgement. "
"I don't care if it is an argument or not. It falls under the intellectual discourse(BSing). You keep implying that owning a gun attracts dangerous activity. I have and other people have pointed out that you are getting cause and effect…"
"The first one I agree with the judge and despise the prosecutor+. The second one is where they got caught and paid a hefty price. It was a non violent crime and can still be criminally prosecuted.

"Well Madeline they are good for defending your family. They give the good guys a chance to level the odds. Many bad guys will run if they see a gun or heat a warning shot. 1.6 people per 100000 people just doesn't sound like much to me. I…"
"3.6 homicides per 100000 and 1.93 are police involved shootings. That only leaves 1.67 as mostly bad guys shooting other bad guys. I think that that is more acceptable to me than regulating knife lengths and being defenseless…"
"3.6 per 100000 that is acceptable since most of those are worthless people killing other worthless people or cops killing worthless people. Gotta reduce the population somehow. (that is the troll in me coming out)"
Yup, I had to give myself some hands off time in order to make up for all the slacking. Exams gone reasonably well so far though, but I have to skip the last one and meet some guys at the US embassy for some probing. About the membership thing... Maybe I should wait until I'm back in Norway, since it's an international membership I'm getting? I've decided to go to Texas you see. It turns out I got an exchange spot, so I won't be paying tuition fees, and then it gets very affordable indeed:)
