    Irish's post makes sense. baby doll's post made me laugh. Good work, folks.

    Irish's plan is solid also since the NRA owns most of the federal government. Although it's clear that conservatives no longer care about states rights, or only do when it suits them.

    Not denying that, but what do you think the point of that tweet was?

    I don't know what he was trying to achieve but his message seemed to be about perspective. Unfortunately, he's such a myopic dipshit he didn't realize that's not a good message to relay to a huge audience, in public, 1 or 2 days after a massacre. (This is aside from the fact that he made a terribly weak argument while doing this.)

    In terms of tone and intent, you'd think the guy woulda learned his lesson by now. This is like the 2nd or 3rd time this has happened in the last year alone. I mean, you're an astrophysicist who gets pantsed by the Official Star Wars twitter account, maybe you should take a break.

    Tyson: In @StarWars #TheForceAwakens, BB-8, a smooth rolling metal spherical ball, would have skidded uncontrollably on sand.

    Rando: BB-8 is a real robot created by the SW set engineers, no? Why didn't it skid uncontrollably on set?

    Star Wars: BB-8 is very much a real robot with puppeteers. There were a few that did different scenes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqSOo5reNO8

    Really hope the government finally cracks down on GTA V so Americans can continue enjoying assault rifles safely at home.

    If you guys want gun control, all you have to do is convince Fox News viewers that illegal immigrants from central America and liberal college professors are using money from George Soros to amass an arsenal of automatic weapons to enforce gender neutral bathrooms. Republicans will ban that shit so fast it'll make your head spin.
    I think it would have the opposite effect. It would have them telling their base they need arm up.

    Yeah.

    R's: We don't need more gun laws. They don't work. Criminals don't obey laws, they would still have guns. Thats a waste of time.

    Also R's: We need to make laws about video games.

    That Tyson tweet is a level of stupidity I can't even fathom. He deserves the Doc Manhattan jab.

    It's going to take someone famous being killed or some mediawide event for any gun reform to actually occur it feels like. It's all just numbers to politicians. I also feel that while Democrats are quick to provide numbers, but never provide a true solution outside of a complete ban, which is impossible for something of this magnitude.
    If 20 young kids getting massacred didn’t change anything, I think the ship has pretty much sailed on gun control.

    Sandy Hook occurred during the Obama administration too. Just shows the reluctancy of any change actually occurring.

    But I still have yet to even see any proposals of ideas outside of, "We need gun control."

    Okay... propose something, anything for us to vote on. Even if it's by state. Here's another reason why I can't see a Democrat winning in 2020, because there's just empty shouting and complaining with no plans on actually accomplishing anything.

    Invisible Man - *** 1/2
    Little Women - *** 1/2

    A recession is probably likely. I just hope it's not as bad as 2008 was.
