Re: Sasha to release the Refracted show on Blu Ray (195 replies, posted in General Bedrock Discussion)
well, sure, i hear ya, but it seems to be pretty much what the academics say the number say
The stats are saying that rich whites + poor blacks = bang bang
Is that simple enough for you.
I wouldn’t include the perpetrators of mass shootings as being law-abiding citizens Roberto!
Ok, maybe they were up until they shot all those people, but the point is that if you are planning on committing mass-homicide you are unlikely to be dissuaded from doing so by the laws on gun ownership, right?
What you guys are really talking about is reducing the number and availability of guns to make it less convenient for these people to lay their hands on a cache of guns. That’s a whole different challenge imo, and arguably not something that can be achieved just by making it illegal for responsible people to own them, but I agree it could have made a difference in these specific cases.
i don't think the causes are generic, I think the causes are what the stats say the causes are and I think that's why places like America and South Africa are disproportionately affected compared to places like Japan and Switzerland.
The quantity of guns in a country is obviously one of the key factors in play but it's not a critical factor in isolation and making guns illegal only really affects the quantity of guns owned by law-abiding citizens.
The fundamental causes are to do with the distribution of wealth and opportunity, the legal system, and racial discrimination.
speaking of 90's classics, i've just ordered myself a pair of these proper nawty bad boys
Shouldn’t be a worry for members of the Billionaire Boys Club though, surely?
honestly mate, i wouldn't worry about it.

my basic point is that relaxing gun laws could increase shootings due to decreased gun ownership.
my broader point is that most people are ignorant of the law of unintended consequence and therefore misunderstand the complex and often paradoxical relationship between policy and outcome.
