To +Christof Harper , +Ray of Sunshine , and all my other friends who worry about losing their Second Amendment rights, and to +Steve S , +Steve Yuan , and my other friends who favor strong gun regulation, please listen to this week's New York Radio Hour. It features an NRA Life Member and Certified Gun Safety Instructor and licensed gun dealer who has an interesting take on gun ownership and regulation.

My takeaway: some people feel about guns the way I feel about computers: it's a technology that enriches life. I now understand gun owners a bit better.

More, please. Thank you in advance.
In this episode, a gun blogger critiques the N.R.A., and a Presbyterian minister rewrites old hymns for new crises.

Hear, hear! Use the latest tech, by all means. Just make sure to learn what it means.

Substitute "Jew" or "Black" for "Muslim" and I doubt this guy would give a good Goddamn.

Post hoc, ergo propter hoc is not airtight, but it can be extremely suggestive.

Could we please have polite and respectful discussion from all perspectives, please.

The societal values are different in the two countries too. Lots of studies on entitlement, hoplessness, etc. as being important to the violence issue in the USA - https://aeon.co/essays/does-a-culture-of-entitlement-explain-us-mass-shootings

Because, I mean, rubber ducks can be a menace.

Interesting lawsuit. I wonder if the delegate is working alone, or if The Powers That Be are backing him.

Yes, you should. Most definitely, you should.

I need accurate and trustworthy data. It would be especially helpful were it anonymously peer reviewed, which is the gold standard for academic research.

Again, polite and respectful comment is solicited from all perspectives. Thank you in advance.
If commonsense reforms to American gun laws are to have any chance, thoughtful gun owners need to be treated with more respect – and split from the fundamentalist leaders of the NRA

I have seen lives wrecked by rape. There is no excuse for protecting the guilty. None.

Laws need to be amended due to changes in society. Easier to fix same than pass new laws, imho...

A winning campaign needs a good ground operation. It was true in Brooklyn in 1986, and it's true nation wide today.

+Eric Mintz Oh, I'm well aware of this: my father-in-law still went door to door, shaking hands and listening earnestly, even when he was in the state senate.

To butter tart, or not to butter tart, that is the question, and the answer is YES! They are huge, fresh, and utterly scrumptious, as are the eggs, potatoes, and all the rest. Meat-eating Americans (yes, there are other kinds) should try the peasmeal, about which my family waxed eloquent. The coffee is ample and delicious. Service is helpful and friendly. Eat here and leave happy. We did.

The Retreat was my home away from home when I worked in Reading. They serve great beer, and the hospitality is first-rate. I recommend that you stop in for a pint, and please have one for me when you do.
