“The war on drugs and D.A.R.E. programs used a lot of kids to promote taking property away from citizens without due process. The big push to censor music in the 80s involved a lot of kids for political purposes.”

Here's the link to a site that has the Federalists' Papers:
http://www.foundingfathers.info/federalistpapers/

I realize that the trouble with statistics is that people with agendas can usually twist them to say whatever they want. I think an honest question when it comes to gun control is, do we think the crimminals will turn in their guns or their high capacity magazines? It seems like the only people who will follow the laws are law abiding citizens.

Though it appears that we will have to agree to disagree, I do want to thank you for keeping the discussion pleasant, polite and respectful.”

“Other than the Federalists' Papers where the writers of our Constitution made it clear that the purpose of the 2nd amendment is to be the citizens' balance against an aggressive government. I would rather do something effective. Shooting sprees stopped by the police average 14.5 people killed. Shooting sprees ended by armed private citizens average 2.8. I suppose my biggest issue with it is that the bad guys will still have the guns, and the good guys won't. If a home invasion is committed with 3 intruders, suddenly a 12 round clip is VERY necessary. Ofcourse, you and I can always agree to disagree.”

“And I'm not totally disagreeing with you either, just saying that we need to accept the current technological limits. I speciallize in energy management, and currently, there is no practical alternative to carbon based fuels. Battery technology actually causes more destruction to the environment during the extremely messy production process. Add to that, the fact that in the USA, at least, those batteries are charge by coal burning power plants. Further, the current power grid can in no way shape or form supply the current needed to charge even a 20% shift to electric cars. I'm only saying, the earth is very resilient, and had many changes before we got here. We need to push for new technologies, but understand our reliance on the current technology.”

“If we are the cause, why have the poles been ice free for 90% of the earth's history? Also, there are much more than 5% of the scientist who disagree with significant man-made global warming. This isn't to say we shouldn't look into cleaner energy sources, we'd be very short sighted not to. The climate, however, has been through significant changes long before man ever set foot on this pebble in space. Ice ages, warming trends, you name it. The average global temperature in the 14th century was 3 degrees F higher than today. In the early 17th century we headed into a mini ice age, that actually didn't end until the early 20th century. Green energy is fine, but I believe we must also understand that climatic changes are going to happen whether or not mankind is here, or as extinct as the dinos.”

“I'd rather see what would happen to our planet if the global community ended its addiction to carbon based fuels.  I also get the big picture of Earth history but current spikes coincide with the rise of industrialized nations and changes are happening at a much more rapid rate. That's my two cents.”

“So can a .22LR. And yes, some of those chinese store owners were using Bushmasters with what would now be called a high capacity clip. In a school shooting, I don't see where having to change clips would actually save any lives. I suppose we'll just have to see how it pans out, but my guess is people bent on killing will find a way. Tim McVeigh didn't use a gun, and still killed 168 people.”

“It's not a panacea for sure.  But we must start somewhere and at some point.  Now is that time and place! Can you please tell me what the logic and rational there is for allowing military style guns and accessories on the streets of America?  Hint: There is none.”

rogergoldkin on Jan 17, 2013 at 06:16:48

“Why don't we just settle differences with our neighbors using RPG's? These are military style weapons and have no business on the streets of America. To what purpose? Armed insurrection against the government (you just might want to think that one through a little better)? It sure isn't to bag Bambi or Thumper.”

“In the former Soviet Union, the military refused to fire on it's citizens, and in fact, turned on the government. An AR-15's high capacity magazine would be very helpful if riots ever break out, and a person needed to defend their property from multiple assailants. This happened in the L.A. Rodney King riots, when chinese shop owners defended themselves.”

“Since storms are a result of two colliding air masses of different temperatures, a warming of the sub-tropical zones would actually decrease the intensity of storms. In the 1300s, the earth's average temperature was actually higher than today, and Europe's crop output jumped significantly. When you also consider that throughout much of the earth's history, there is no ice at the poles, it's safe to say that we're probably going to be just fine.”

“Take up your argument with the 95% of scientist who agree we are causing a rise in temperatures.  Not to mention that burning fossil fuels is absolutely unhealthy for all of us who share this planet.  Time to go green or our future generations will pay a great price.  Bummer you're not on board with being part of the solution.”

“Over 300,000,000 people in this country. 30,000 gun related deaths a year. Half of those are suicides. Another 2,000 or so are deaths by citizens or police protecting themselves. Having said that, we'll stick with the 30,000 number. That's 30,000 deaths per 300,000,000. That's 10,000 per 100,000,000. That's .00001% of the population each year. Statistically, that's zero. Ofcourse each death is a tragedy, but is it really possible to get that number lower? Considering the fact that we seem to be unable to keep illegal drugs off the streets, it doesn't seem like any amount of gun control can take a statistical zero, then make it less.”

“I feel that the entire tax code is a scam. It is the source of power for our elected representatives. It's the way they play one group of people against another. A level tax, with NO loopholes of any kind and all capital gains treated equally as income would end this. The government wants to spend more, EVERYBODY pays more. This is the only way for us to really get a handle on spending. We would have to decide as a nation which programs are vital, and which ones aren't. Also, bringing as much back to a local level would cut a lot of the waste out of these programs.”
