Posted in: New Zealand begins gun buyback after mosque killings See in context

I think the majority of shotguns and rifles are owned by the farmers to protect their flocks.

In NZ, apart from the odd stray dog there aren't really any predators to go after livestock.

The bad guy with a gun vs good guy with a gun analogy used in this instance is garbage. It's designed simply to instill fear - "OMG how can we defend ourselves against people with guns?" The reason it's garbage is in NZ the only people who are allowed to carry guns publicly to face the so called bad guys are law enforcement officials anyway. Any other "good guy" carrying a gun in public would have been breaking the law (and actually be a bad guy) even before the ban on these particular weapons. Therefore it's extremely unlikely that anybody actually following the law would have been in a position to face a "bad guy with a gun" with a gun of their own. It's seriously a load of garbage in relation to this ban.

My point is a Extradition is commonly used to return the accused to the state where the crime was committed... not to an entirely different state altogether.

The Original Wing - no issue with the rest of it. Sometimes these topics raise heckles unnecessarily. Everybody should be as open-minded as possible when trying to debate these things otherwise people can get offended when none is intended.

Of course they are.

Comedy is your strongest attribute.

Most countries have extradition arrangement, so why not HK?

The issue isn't about having an extradition law. The issue is about the details of the proposed law. It'd be kind of like a state of the US having an extradition law which sends the accused to an entirely different state... where they could face trial with much more severe possible outcomes.

And even if you feel that you can interpret a little sense of personal opinion being implied, it's certainly not clear enough for jcapan's extremely rude question/accusation/conclusion of "Are you saying you don't like gay people?"

It's ironic how you say it isn't clear enough for jcapan to ask a question which, without any clarity whatsoever, you imply could be an accusation or conclusion by jcapan. I'd say you pointing out the lack of clarity in sensei's post actually does warrant asking a question to clarify. That itself isn't and shouldn't be considered rude. If you are saying you can determine an underlying tone from jcapan's question then that is your opinion just as sensei may or may not have had an underlying tone which strangerland has an opinion about. Your opinions are not more valid than those of the other posters you are talking to/about.

Should be a lesson in diplomacy for Trump. Tearing up domestic laws signed by your predecessor is one thing but tearing up international agreements is a different thing entirely. He should have been asking to talk BEFORE scrapping it not after.

Except the president is responsible for all the actions of all the WH staff. Had it not been for this opinions on McCain it wouldn't have happened.

And adding to that it was the Pentagon who made the demand to stop politicizing the military. Not us here commenting.

I have never seen anything with Robert Patterson so I’m going in with an open mind.

I haven't seen the twilight stuff at all. Water For Elephants is one that I enjoyed... That's got Christoph Waltz in though and he's one of my favorite actors right now. Robert Pattinson is also in one or two (?) of the Harry Potter flicks.

Think the recent stabbing massacre in Kawasaki perfectly illustrates that guns or no guns, someone with intent on killing people will find a way to do so regardless of what tool they choose. And if someone had a gun there, a passerby, for example, he/she could have stopped the lowlife quickly.

Or... if said lowlife had a gun the number of fatalities would have been far greater. Here's one... If the Vegas shooter had a knife instead, how many people would have died?

same as a drug dealer shares responsibility for a user ODing or hurting others.

But we won’t blame the people hooked on drugs? Seriously?

What is it about "shares responsibility" that you don't understand?

Crazy and evil things such as? I'm sorry but I just don't see how one can lay the responsibility of most crazy and evil things that happen in this world with a right of choice on abortion.

Posted in: Trump says impeachment is 'dirty, filthy, disgusting word' See in context

And you know, Trump's tax "fix" has only made things worse for the lower class...

Somebody gets it... The rich getting richer means exactly that... No more and no less. More money in the pockets of rich people doesn't mean everybody is better off at all. If there could be some incentive for them to invest a lower tax rate might work but a lower tax rate alone means less money for the government to focus where it's needed and an ever expanding gap between rich and poor. I used to think the same as bass too but it's just not so simple.

Given that the Democrats don’t know anything about moving a strong economy lack in creating strong jobs and we’re not talking about part time people have jobs, we are talking about full-time white-collar and especially blue-collar jobs, they won’t have it that easy since they believe in punishing success, want to tax people into oblivion and believe you should regulate and inhibit financial growth.

Given that the article you posted the other day to prove higher taxes scares investors off (now putting 40% into OFFSHORE investment vs 25% before the tax cuts) said exactly the opposite... and no I wasn't cherry picking... I'm going to suggest you have no idea. Yes it is making rich Americans richer but only rich Americans. The returns they are making is only going into their own pockets... if they were investing in America then sure you'd have a point, but all evidence in that article said otherwise. As for jobs and wage growth.

The public has a right to that footage. It contains images that are prevalent in our society and we have the right to view it and use it as we see fit.

Even if that means there will be people getting their kicks out of it. Sorry but I wholeheartedly disagree.

I don't think it is... if I think something is funny I will usually laugh involuntarily. If it's a deliberate action then it's fake laughter. Fake laughter is rude.

Even more so, because you have the moderate Democrats I don’t want impeachment and they know that it spells do them in bloom for them and the socialists already turn off the cliff with it, so I’m rooting for the socialists and hope that they drive off the cliff.

Were we talking about dividing Democrats or dividing the country? It's not the same thing.
