“All humans are potential bad actors, it is the guns they use that are an extension of their will. So by your own statement we should deal with the bad actors and that of course would mean noone could own a gun.”

GregCampNC on Dec 10, 2013 at 11:45:27

“False. We don't punish potential. A person has to do actual harm to deserve punishment.”

“You make me laugh. Guns discharged by humans harm (kill) more in the US than in all of Europe, Canada, Australia, India combined.”

GregCampNC on Dec 9, 2013 at 16:10:38

“Guns are not an inherent harm. Using guns in bad ways is a harm. Gun control people want to ban the tool, rather than deal with the bad actors.”

“You are expressing your paranoia at its best Tim.”

Timothy Osman on Dec 9, 2013 at 13:59:59

“*So you posit that when more legislation is enacted and another shooting occurs that more progressives wont demand more laws. Then another shooting and more laws until people finally conclude that the only way to stop the shootings are to completely ban firearms. That is the end goal of the liberal agenda. That is not paranoia, it is just logic followed through to its natural conclusion.”

Timothy Osman on Dec 9, 2013 at 13:34:55

“So you posit that when more legislatio So theoretically if we banned all "assault weapons" and had universal background checks and another shooting occurs then you will decide that we have enough legislation and theres nothing we can do to stop evil people from committing evil acts. I know that calling someone paranoid is only a way to keep your own cognitive dissonance in order while not rebutting their actual logic.”

“Can someone give me a rational explanation for not supporting the Shumer amendment that would have all plastic firearms have a permanent, nonremoveable, piece of metal placed in them, instead of a removeable piece of metal? The opposition is purely political, and not in the interest of the majority.”

Erik Nervik on Dec 9, 2013 at 11:07:54

“Because Schumer's amendment requires metal inserted in all parts of a firearm and not just, in the firearm as assembled. for instance, a gun like the Sig P250 which has already sold millions might become illegal since the frame is polymer and all metal pieces are completely removable, but when the firearm is actually assembled there's lots of metal in it.

also millions of people own magazines for guns with may not contain metal or enough metal in them.....”

JN Scott on Dec 9, 2013 at 10:48:57

“Nope, I'm pro Second Amendment and I find this entirely reasonable. I see no reason why it shouldn't stay law.”

GregCampNC on Dec 9, 2013 at 10:46:15

“Because what Schumer wants on guns won't stop bad people from having them. Anyone with a 3-D printer or even just a machine shop can make guns in secret. As always, this is aimed at controlling the people who aren't doing anything wrong.”

phillipgaohio on Dec 9, 2013 at 10:45:23

“There really isn't a rational explanation.”

n2zyk on Dec 9, 2013 at 10:44:25

“the object is to remove all firearms from the public not allow them plastic ones with a metal part.”

“Forcible sex under any circumstances is rape, but many just don't seem to get it.”

lcr999 on Nov 30, 2013 at 23:17:03

“True, but that is not what this article is about. This is about documentation of (initial) consent.”

Mark Neil on Nov 28, 2013 at 09:17:40

“Yes, because requiring affirmative consent is forcible sex.”

Robert Eckert on Nov 28, 2013 at 00:02:20

“The topic is sexual encounters that do not involve any force at all, but may be called rape anyway.”

greatdane5 on Nov 27, 2013 at 18:02:05

“Of course it is but it's not black and white. Would you require an affirmative "yes" for consent? A "no means no" standard? What if the "no" was said in a playful tone? Unfortunately, sex is not easy to legislate around--there are many shades of grey.”

“Alcohol clouds one's thinking. For some reason in women it exudes trust in others, in men it empowers them and decreases their inhibitions and increases their aggressive tendencies. It can also decrease a woman's inhibitions, but it doesn't empower them to be aggressive. People do not understand that men and women think differently, and until men figure that out they will continue to rape women and look for excuses.”

JPaulNorton on Nov 22, 2013 at 13:12:28

“People have it figured out. Why do you think college is the way it is. Alcohol is the great equalizer b/c it provides men with "liquid courage" and women the ability to turn off their "anxieties" or inhibitions.....half the people reading this are here because of that very reason...this is what happens when hormonally charged men and women who are drunk get together. One shouldn't need an excuse b/c one should make better choices before the point of no return.”

“So you would say the same if the woman was robbed instead of raped? That alcohol made the guy rob the woman, and since they were possibly underage that is OK. Norton, you just don't get it. Rape is a power and control crime. It is categorized as a sex crime, but really is no different than forcible robbery, of assault with intent to harm. When people quit blaming the woman things will change.”

JPaulNorton on Nov 22, 2013 at 10:46:46

“Don't misunderstand, I get the motivations behind rape, (power/control) which is why we have to really be critical of claims made when two people leave a bar at 1am and in a drunken haze "hook up." Regret isn't rape....and if two people weren't interested in each other or sex what is the motivation for leaving with one another...when a simple phone call and agreement to meet for a date later is so viable.”

“What does alcohol have to do with it? Assault is assault. Are you implying that alcohol is an excuse to not prosecute?”

JPaulNorton on Nov 22, 2013 at 07:17:09

“I think we all know since the incident in Ohio that alcohol affects credibility. We also know from Rainn that statistically alcohol is a contributing factor in almost all "rape" allegations for people college aged. The significance can't be understated...regret is not rape. Also, if they were both drinking, it is tough to convict a more aggressive male meeting a more passive female...it just isn't fair. Also, they were probably both underage. The waters at that point get murkier.”

Okey Umez on Nov 21, 2013 at 16:59:17

“I don't think JPaulNorton was saying that alcohol is an excuse not to prosecute assault.”

Mike in San Pedro on Nov 21, 2013 at 15:55:16

“Alcohol would be a factor in a witness's credibility. But you're right, it's not a defense to a sexual assault.”
