I've had my GNex for over a year and only now did I figure out how to cause the accelerometer to stabilise enough to allow for proper photospheres.

Sigh.

esalaka here (lv1), most areas of Tampere and Pirkkala seem pretty devoid of portals. Guess I should submit some.

I should probably decide which side I'm gonna take in #Ingress before I get my phone or invite, whichever happens later.

Kind of leaning towards #Enlightened right now.

Just requested an #Ingress invite. Hope I'll get one soon. Preferably before or roughly around the same time I get my Galaxy Nexus back.

I'd try out Latitude but my phone seems to have issues reporting its location.

Whenever these people open their mouths or start typing something about guns they do it in a way that makes them look like complete idiots who refuse to believe that having less guns means less people who want to kill have the means to.

I refuse to believe these people are asserting that if there were no guns, people would go on killing sprees with knives. Most of them are probably gun-owners, they're supposed to know what a firearm is. Guns propel slugs of metal at a target from a distance and are often powerful enough to kill in one or two well-aimed shots. A knife, on the other hand, requires a distance of maybe half a metre to a bit over one and cannot be reliably used to hit an escaping target, among other things.

Of course non-firearm weapons like crossbows can be even more powerful than certain guns and yes they can kill people from a distance as well, but what the hell does it matter? Unless you're carrying a backpack full of them you'll only get one shot before you have to reload. With a rifle or a pistol you can get several. Which is the issue exactly. That is why you have to reduce the availability of firearms. Because you can use them to kill or wound a several people in quick succession. Not because they can be used to kill or wound people.

(And what comes to other bows, they're not exactly inconspicuous or simple to operate)

Preface: I'm not against civilian gun ownership. Many of my relatives are hunters, I'm completely fine with using guns. But I am against civilian assault weapon ownership and somewhat carrying firearms in public. But that's not even the point; the point is preventing irresponsible and mentally unstable or sociopathic people from acquiring them. I'm also not an US citizen but your shit is all over the news everywhere so I can't just ignore stuff about you.

---

Everyone who's pointing out that firearms cause only a small amount of deaths in the US is missing the point so bad I kind of want to physically assault them. Because I'm a mean person like that.

What they're saying is essentially that it would reduce deaths by only a small amount - some part of the firearm-related deaths, obviously - so let's do nothing instead.

When people kill other people with firearms they're often doing it intentionally. Making guns harder to get makes mass murder more difficult. That's a simple as it gets.

Fucking hell.

Of course people are still going to die and tragedies are still going to happen but there have been so many firearm-related mass-killing incidents this year alone in the US that everyone should have by now noticed you have to do something to gun-owners who act like this. Psychological screening, harder to get firearms, mandatory registration, something.

But no, the guns aren't at fault, of course you can't do anything about the guns. Just... Fucking hell.

Guns don't kill people but if it's possible to just march into a store and buy a gun without anything more than that, other people sure as hell will.

#opinions #firearms

Oh, and you can't protect your rights with guns either, taking away your guns doesn't take away your freedom because your government already holds power over you and the only thing you could do about that with a gun is kill members of the government. Which wouldn't change laws.

The only thing you could defend yourself from would be an armed conflict but why the hell would your government use their soldiers to conquer territory they already hold sovereignty over.

#guns   #rights #liberty #government #politics #fucktards

In short, if you are against the regulation of guns, you're denying that their availability causes gun-related deaths. If for example only just gun registration was made mandatory and a permit required to own firearms, police could easily crack down on criminals acquiring theirs illegally.

Add a psychological screening before getting your permit and suddenly clinically insane people can't buy guns, either. Suddenly, a lot of irresponsible gun-owners are filtered out and everyone who has a permit can continue on with their life as they did earlier but with less fear of someone killing a bunch of children with a firearm.
