That's horrible, sorry Nigel.

On my end, I'm feeling the blues. I'm going to try and take the week off from school that I have and channel it into music composition. I have rediscovered a thing though. I like a primordial feel. I might try to write a vaguely metal song about the worship of some sort of Near East deity.

What about flamethrowers?

I think they're considered "any other weapon" and are legal pretty much anywhere but California and a few other states.

Fun fact, a hand-cranked gatling gun is technically semi-automatic, and doesn't require any special permits to own.

MA is probably one of those states. I think nunchaku are technically illegal here.

Really what it is, is that there has only been one instance where our rights have been restricted by constitutional amendment, and that was Prohibition. We have the right to own guns since 1789 technological advancements be damned. So it really it's just on us as a people, as individuals, as institutions that we can't have nice things. Americans aren't responsible with guns. We all know this, but that's already a built in freedom, for better or for worse.

I can see owning a rifle... I don't understand why anyone needs an AK-47.

The argument there is that it's fun. I've never shot a firearm, but I've enjoyed medieval weapons. I think the mentality, more than anything else, is what needs to change. We have it in our heads that We The People NEED guns to fight off tyranny, which is lurking around at all times (and we totally didn't vote for anyway). Which is just stupid. The USA is the best armed and best funded military in the world. Your AK isn't doing shit for you against the NWO at that point.

The fun thing, I can see. When I was in Vegas they had ads all over for some ranch you could go shoot an AK... If had had more time, I certainly would have.

One of my favorite things to do is shoot Borg while pretending to be an admiral on the computer machine. It fulfills the same purpose. Except maybe that visceral feel. I would go to a gun range , but I still honestly have no interest in owning projectile weapons.

I think I have about 2 weeks until Fall Semester.

Which means I should buy books.

Fucking books.

Summer semester ended 31 minutes ago. Now I wait.

Whatever happened to shooting to incapacitate?  Wouldn't a bullet in the lower leg down most people, without killing them?

That can be considered intent to maim, which would (ironically?) land you in hotter water than "proper" use of deadly force.

Yes. The person you shoot could sue you.

My guitarist looked into firearms licensing and the instructor said, if you draw, it's no going back. If you draw the intent is to kill in self-defense, because if they live, even if you don't shoot them, the might sue you. Now, this is second if not third hand, but that's pretty fucked up. I'd just be happy the dude didn't shoot me.

And then THIS fucking thing:

http://thefreethoughtproject.com/cell-phone-video-emerges-refutes-st-louis-cops-version-shooting/

Not exactly work safe. The full video of the other guy shot in St. Louis.


That was horrible. But it still looks like suicide by cop to me.

The cops account of the situation was exaggerated, but what would you do if someone walks toward you with a knife after saying "Shoot me, shoot me now"?

I would say in a clear loud voice "NO". Ok maybe that's because I am a sadist, but more likely its because I am a damned pinko liberal european who finds your murrican gun culture repugnant. I am shocked, the fact that a guy like you N E T, whose opinion I have always respected even if I didn't agree can so blithely write it off as suicide by cop. WTF does that even mean in a country where being black seems to carry a suspended death sentence. Jesus Fuck America, you have hardly moved on race matters since, well EVAR.

You can make me out to be some kind of callous monster if you'd like. But suicide by cop is a thing in the US, and it's perhaps the most fucked up way to kill oneself.

And the United States gun-cat is out of the bag. It's not going back in the bag. What do you think would happen if we tried to ban guns at this point?

I would also like to point out that guns are still useful to Americans. We still have predators, and quite a bit of area that is not urbanized. In fact, most of the US is not urbanized, it's just that the majority of Americans live in urban areas. I'm ambivalent about gun ownership, truth be told. It's your right in this country, and that right was written down not long after a violent revolution. At the same time, what the fuck do you need a gun for? Firearms laws and firearms positions aren't necessarily cut and dry here. I'd never own one, due to the pacifism and not needing to shoot mountain lions or deer. But the reasons for gun ownership aren't all redneck bullshit.


And Net is right. Suicide by cop is a legit thing here.

No, that was Bhode_Sativa.  The Lamanite was "we should all be hunter-gatherers, the herds will migrate where they are needed" and "the BiP is racist".

I remember we were joking about that when we came up with the Latin translation of Black Iron Prison, and then, just as sure as Poe's Law...

Funny enough, there is a small nuance in Latin when it comes to the color black. Niger/nigra/nigrum implies a glossy or shiny kinda black, where ater/atra/atrum has a dull quality. The latter is where the word atrium comes from, apparently, since the walls might be a bit sooty. Or so I've been told.

Eta: both translations would be good. Niger for a metallic thing, ater, for a dreary type of thing. Hmmm... sorry going off in a thought tangent.

I don't think we've ever had any National Anarchists.  Which is probably just as well, as I'd never stop laughing....

Is that even a thing? If so, how is that possible?

I think it's more comforting for some people to believe you had to be a vicious troll, than someone with your mentality actually exists out there in real life.

Thats a logical sounding deflection, but as i look through things more and more, i see it everywhere.
if someone pisses off PD's core users somehow, its mysticwick, totse, or the monster-of-the-week troll from last month "obviously" using an alt.

I mean, yeah maybe i have some out there beliefs, but its a pretty regular occurance for me to see "huh, hes a [fascist/racist/non-left libertarian]? Must be [the ghost of trollmas past] using an alt".

It sounds like just a general case of paranoia...

The board is paranoid, as a result of having several persistent trolls who come back over and over again under alts, and a number of people who have vowed to destroy us but have failed to do anything worse than be kinda annoying.

Specifically on the line of "vowed to destroy", im absolutely rolling, picturing someone who looks like mandark sitting in front of a computer just screaming into the wind

"Curse you peeeeeedeeeeeeee".

Anyway, im kinda fucking up a legit discussion about a real political event here, and thats just rude. If any admins are around, Is it possible to thread-split all of the bullshit related to me away so that the ferguson thing can acheive its proper amount of coverage without all of my shit cluttering the thread?

That's the first reasonable thing you've said ITT.

This, if anything, is deflection. One dude who hasn't seen you around before figured you a troll (ask yourself why).

I pointed out that you're notable for being a libertarian since the only times I've seen you discuss anything, it's been in line with what is expected of a libertarian. ie- there's little else that is apparent about you to draw on. You're also LGBT. Never knew that before.
