Here's a good one. The NRA is banning guns at their Texas convention during Trump's appearance.

You can legally buy a gun at 18 in Texas. You must be 21 to buy a beer.
And if you take your wife to get an abortion you'll get thrown in jail.

Re: The Latest Mass Shooting In America

Great post Pete, albeit a very depressing read. Actually it sounds to me like it's very close to acknowledging America as a dictatorship - essentially you've ended up with a small group possessing absolute power without effective constitutional limitations. And the majority seemingly unable to chan...

I apologise if this has already been asked.

Do any of our posters based in the US own a gun? If so, why?
No I don't.

Re: The Latest Mass Shooting In America

The process for buying a gun around the world. Is it so much to ask to approach some of the added steps used elsewhere?

Re: The Latest Mass Shooting In America

Good post Bendy. Regarding your first point though - yes, I listened to the coach, and he talked a lot of sense. But ultimately ordinary Americans vote in their politicians. The people are complicit in what gets passed into law. How can you point all the blame at the senators when there are more gu...

Re: Superhero ( & sci-fi / other relevant) films

Have to say, I'm feeling pretty jaded about these trailers and the movies themselves at the moment. After years of a steady diet of superhero films and shows, and I'm kind of yearning for a film for grownups, especially where going to the theater is involved. Not that Marvel & DC films aren't fo...

The reason they have to do this is because the bodies are mangled to the point of being unrecognizable.

Re: The Latest Mass Shooting In America

I asked my 13 year old son if his teachers discussed the slaughter at school today. He said, “ No, but a kid was expelled today for having brought a gun to school last week”. He wasn’t sure whether it was a real handgun or an Airsoft gun. Nevertheless, we parents were never told about it from the ad...

Re: The Latest Mass Shooting In America

It's just a complete coincidence that the country with by far the most guns has by far the most gun murders & mass shootings. Not connected at all. And half the population here believes fundamentally that the rights afforded them in this country are 'god given', when what they really have are s...

Re: The Latest Mass Shooting In America

Already in the news here are questions about IS HE LEGAL rather than WHY DO WE KEEP HAVING MASS SHOOTINGS? Apparently, a number of the victims are children of customs and border patrol and law enforcement agents. No idea whether that had played any part in the murderer's motivation, but you know wh...
