    St. Louis protests are still going on.

    Journalists being arrested too, but from the article a pastor is has been arrested twice in two days. I'm guessing it's to hold them overnight? Regardless, thought you couldn't arrest the press?

    They probably thought that too.

    Journalists are arrested all the time, it's just a bad look for your PD to do so.

    Except today, I guess. Police literally get away with murder so.
    This is offensive.

    "They kettled us again," Gray said in a phone interview shortly after being released from jail on Wednesday. "No one resisted." He said two social media journalists and others not involved in the highway blockage were among those arrested.
    I am not sure they would be recognized as journalists in a court of law. As in they probably don't have a press badge from St Louis local newspaper organization.

    Either way, if a journalist is taking part in blocking traffic and doesn't obey police orders to disperse...

    Anyways, it's pretty clear someone is trying, although to be seen if they follow through. And it's really hard to show this without body cameras.
    Earlier Tuesday, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner outlined to a city board a proposal that her office take over and lead all use-of-force investigations involving the police. She asked the Board of Aldermen for $1.3 million to launch an independent team that would include four prosecutors, five investigators and two support staff.

    Currently, use-of-force cases are investigated internally by the police department.

    "Both the community and police deserve an objective, fair and transparent investigation, and it is no longer acceptable for police to be essentially investigating themselves," Gardner said.

    IMO

    There should be a federal agency to conduct and oversee such use of force investigations, with cooperation from elected state offices (attorney, sheriff)

    Along with a national body camera initiative on all police, FBI, DEA, and DHS while on active duty, as appropriate. (are there other armed agencies who work on US soil?)
    I am not knowledgeable enough to comment on the details of when the DEA should and shouldn't use a body camera, thus "as appropriate".

    "State Intimate Partner Violence–Related Firearm Laws and Intimate Partner Homicide Rates in the United States, 1991 to 2015 "
    To prevent intimate partner homicide (IPH), some states have adopted laws restricting firearm possession by intimate partner violence (IPV) offenders. “Possession” laws prohibit the possession of firearms by these offenders. “Relinquishment” laws prohibit firearm possession and also explicitly require offenders to surrender their firearms. Few studies have assessed the effect of these policies.

    Objective: To study the association between state IPV-related firearm laws and IPH rates over a 25-year period (1991 to 2015).

    Setting: United States, 1991 to 2015.

    Participants: Homicides committed by intimate partners, as identified in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reports, Supplementary Homicide Reports.

    Measurements: IPV-related firearm laws (predictor) and annual, state-specific, total, and firearm-related IPH rates (outcome).

    Results: State laws that prohibit persons subject to IPV-related restraining orders from possessing firearms and also require them to relinquish firearms in their possession were associated with 9.7% lower total IPH rates (95% CI, 3.4% to 15.5% reduction) and 14.0% lower firearm-related IPH rates (CI, 5.1% to 22.0% reduction) than in states without these laws. Laws that did not explicitly require relinquishment of firearms were associated with a non–statistically significant 6.6% reduction in IPH rates.

    Limitations: The model did not control for variation in implementation of the laws. Causal interpretation is limited by the observational and ecological nature of the analysis.

    Conclusion: Our findings suggest that state laws restricting firearm possession by persons deemed to be at risk for perpetrating intimate partner abuse may save lives. Laws requiring at-risk persons to surrender firearms already in their possession were associated with lower IPH rates.

    Intimate Partner violence-related....................So, based on some law that thinks you may smack a bitch, you aren't allowed to possess firearms?

    As I said in other threads, we don't need new gun laws.
    We just need to actually start to enforce the ones we have.

    The actual database states used to check against for a FFL are out of date by years.

    Anti wife-beating. :rofl: You just inadvertently admitted that it is going to be used against men. For real though, It's not like we don't KNOW which way this law will be enforced. My first concern is how far does this go? Is there a weapon type or number limit? Some hunter/guard/cop might lose his ability to do his job because the old lady decided to call the cops on him one night after a heated argument. Of course, if it turns into divorce the gun ownership thing will take a backseat to simply trying to survive. The next concern is how long before it's not just an intimate partner violence-related law? First it's Husbands. Will it be boyfriends next? guys she's dating? Maybe it'll end up being family members at some point too. I hope I'm just being paranoid, but I know better than to think it can't happen.

    Do I have evidence that this will do it? No, as this is fairly new. However, this is why I think it's going to happen.

    Over the past few decades, marriage and divorce laws have been made that favor women over men to the point that a marriage is about 50/50 chance of failing in the first seven to ten years. With the introduction of No-Fault Divorce, a man in court is little more than meat on the plate that the lawyers will cut and serve up before the judge as they argue over how much he gets to keep. As a man You have a slim to none chance of breaking even on your way out the door, and if kids are involved...........well, don't ask. The Result: Men are just saying no in ever increasing numbers.

    Educational fields have been pushing the Girl Power movement for 30+ years now. In college, there are nearly 2 girls to every 1 guy that graduates. These days, men are starting to go into community college and more hands on fields like plumbing and welding. Why? because there are fewer women. Also, a little something called Title 9 which has seriously upset things on campus as far as investigations of sexual assaults go. The result: Now women are complaining about the lack of college educated men.

    Now a days, public laws have been made to try and curb toxic male behavior such as catcalling :tup: domestic disputes :angry: and even Manspreading :wtf: Things have been pushed to the point where men live in a "Guilty until Proven Innocent" type of existence when the incident is man vs. woman in this society as well as many others. The result: Women have begun complaining about such a phenomenon as,"Man desserts" where it seems that men aren't trying to date or even talk to them anymore and many are instead heading for greener pastures, often outside of the place where they live and some go as far as outside of the country where they live, leaving the local girls high and dry.......no pun intended.

    Now, from the examples I've given, I'll give to you this scenario: Some guy who's been married or at least has a live in girlfriend for a few weeks, months, or years just got hauled out of his house on a domestic violence accusation and now his gun collection has been confiscated. He goes to his local bar and tells his story to some other guy(s) who repeat the story to their buddies. These guys are going to start adding two and two together and realize that it happened to him, and they can be next. With all the problems that can happen already when the wife or gf makes a phone call, this one extra thing could be the straw that breaks the back of some men. I would bet you dollars to donuts that a number of men would just say no to having some chick in their house. You may think it's insignificant, I may think so as well, but I'd bet that not every man will. Will something like this speed up the demise of marriage? Yep!! How much? Only time will tell. As Charlton Heston would've said,"You'll have to take my gun from my cold, dead hands." Till this very day, A LOT of people agree with him.

    But the database that is used to show who is on the DO NOT SELL GUNS TO LIST is not liked at all to criminal databases, sex offender databases or anything like that.
    Anything from a criminal database has to be manually transferred over, and some of the strictest states for gun restrictions don't regularly keep their database updated.
    Maryland for example I don't think has their list updated in like 5 or 7 years, I forgot which.

    Yeah, it's clear shorthand that you understand and I know you understand. The policy I've seen is gender neutral: it'll be "used against" men and women who fuck up. :coffee:
    For real though, It's not like we don't KNOW which way this law will be enforced.
    You mean like the active laws which are gender neutral...? :coffee:

    Laws are often old and often complicated things. They are ours. If there's some concern, fix it.
    Some hunter/guard/cop might lose his ability to do his job because the old lady decided to call the cops on him one night after a heated argument.
    I thought we just were talking about how using examples presuming masculine violence was sexist? No matter. "Heated argument" isn't typically what the law considers "domestic violence". If you're thinking that it does, get the laws fixed.
    Of course, if it turns into divorce the gun ownership thing will take a backseat to simply trying to survive. The next concern is how long before it's not just an intimate partner violence-related law? First it's Husbands. Will it be boyfriends next? guys she's dating?

    ... I'm so confused. What's the narrative here? People who have recorded legal charges of violence against somebody shouldn't have restricted gun access... ? Maybe don't beat people up? Seems like a needless slippery slope argument, but even presuming that ridiculous implausibility I'm unclear as to what the problem is. Maybe don't beat people up once you're an "adult"?

    Maybe don't beat up your wife? Maybe don't be in a relationship with somebody that you think is going to falsely claim that you beat them up? They have ready access to you when you are sleeping: giving somebody that level of access implies a fuckton of trust. This isn't a new concept.

    It seems like men (and everybody really) should realize that they should not be in a relationship with somebody that they are going to physically abuse and they should not be in a relationship with someone that is going to falsely claim abuse. I think your plan sounds brilliant and healthy for all concerned.

    So Trumps weekly Saturday twitter rant is at the Late Shows for equal air time?

    "Late Night host are dealing with the Democrats for their very "unfunny" & repetitive material, always anti-Trump! Should we get Equal Time?"
    WTF does this even mean? its like he didn't realize the Democrat lies he loves are the wrong lie to use this time. Seriously he should of just of went with Obama or Crooked Hilary and it would of sounded less stupid.

    Either Trump has worse self esteem than a 12 year old girl/knows his supporters are credulous and don't want to accept reality/he is trying to so hard to act like Putin and KJU and wishing he could kill people who spoke ill of him even if 100% true/or he is just a ""moron" as Tillerson put it.....Now I want Kimmel and Colbert to have fun with these tweets..Seriously they are both great people doing great things as one has stood up for major issues and exposed the GOP's lies and one with help from Ruxin(Nick Croll) raised 1M for Puerto Rico with the PuberMe stuff you know instead of going Kobe with 99 cent paper towels.

    here is another one for the list. it's also another hilarious example of why trump will not only go down as the most ill-informed president in history, but also the world's worst saboteur. apparently, trump personally intervened and attempted to block a proposal from the GOP controlled, state of iowa for stabilizing its aca marketplace ( iowa officials haven't actually been told it will be rejected at this time). trump sabotaging the health care of his own twitter educated, cult members isn't new. it's funny, but it isn't new.

    however, what is funny is the iowa proposal also included a number of GOP provisions that would have made the state's marketplace much more conservative and similar to the AHCA. a GOP bill which he supported and claimed credit for passing on the white house lawn.in short, trump was handed an effortless "W" on a silver platter by the iowa GOP, but he rejected it because he literally does not understand the concept (or policy or not much of anything for that matter) of being handed something on a silver platter.


    still, i can't decide what's more amusing. the reality bending antics of his stans or trump's willingness to repeatedly stick his head down the barrel of a loaded cannon with a lit fuse on his own volition. trump stans! who is more deserving of my derision between the two?79d7ec603c92fd02ae42410c9c56aea0.png?t=1493259747

    You heard him folks!!! You're adults, now cut all this fighting shit out and go home!
    (Ironically enough, That seems to work in Japan. The cops don't even use or even need guns over there. If you can't act like an adult, you don't get to play with the adults. Implausible, but apparently not impossible.)


    That being said, We're still a planet full of evil little monkeys who do evil monkey things, most of which are violent. The first thought someone has after a new invention is made is usually,"How can I use this to fuck somebody up."

    people who have recorded legal charges against them will almost certainly fall into two categories.

    1: The kind of person who doesn't care about the law and will do it anyway
    2: Probably got into trouble when they were young and now THAT shit is following them around like a turd that won't flush.

    "Maybe don't beat up your wife?" LOL. I guess women don't beat on their husbands right? It wouldn't really matter considering how few women own guns anyway.

    "Maybe don't be in a relationship with somebody that you think is going to falsely claim that you beat them up?" Everyone of those relationships you're talking about have one thing in common: They didn't see it coming. If they stay after getting hit upside the head that's on them, but I would bet money that NONE of them, men or women, thought it was going to be that way from the start.

    As far as trust goes, a lot of guys trust don't anymore. Like I said, Marriage rates are already plummeting and something like this won't help. Thanks to really a few feminists and the constant man bashing and "woman good, man bad" agendas that society has allowed, the pushback known as MRAs, MGTOW, and PUAs, a collective that is commonly referred to as the manosphere has grown into what it is today, a global phenomenon. Men adapt, then overcome. Always have, always will.

    If I could look into the future and tell whenever a relationship was about to go bust, I would make MILLIONS saving people from infidelity alone.
    On the other hand, if the law were to crack down on false accusations more, it would be really good IMO. I'd bet that if a lot more people got locked up for it, a lot less people would do it.

    Either way, I really don't see this law doing anything but fucking up. Time will tell.

    Are you gay? Lemme know if so. Doesn't matter to my life concerns. I didn't mean to trigger you by using words that I (evidently incorrectly) thought applied to you and to the majority of members on this web site.


    More saber-rattling towards North Korea:

    That'll go well. :rolleyes:


    Maclean's with a brutal article on Trump: History won't be unkind to Trump - it will be cruel. I keep hoping he'll turn it around - his success is (generally) our success, but ... he keeps finding new ways to be breath-takingly stupid. North Korea, for example. :bluu: On the "plus" side the hurricane devastation maybe helps kick the next job report up a notch. Sigh.

    How about hiring a gun expert before writing a story about Guns.
    AK-47? That is a Civilian model AR-15 with the shorter barrel.

    Also how that shooter is holding that rifle, but stock not on his sholder, rifle away from his body, not using a sling to further stabilize
    He going to have no accuracy

    Yeah, since I was speaking to you-the-masculine-reader it made sense contextually and we were both aware of that. Don't get triggered. A rising tide lifts all boats: I think we can safely move past the gender problems on this specific issue and instead get straight onto the "mah gunz" narrative. Hey, science pointed out that people without guns tended not to kill other people as often. That's neat of science to point that out. Let's move on.


    I'm so confused as to why you would post a screenshot of the NBC article. Then again I don't read news on Facebook so idk how any of that works. Here's an actual link to the source story:
    * https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/las-vegas-shooting/answer-question-las-vegas-massacre-why-elusive-so-far-n808601

    Most people tend to muff tech issues in any field pretty badly. If they did muff it ... hopefully the reporters there learned a lesson and suck less next time. Write in and let them know.

    Post from lolGAF detailing what those cockroaches are trying to do, starting in Charlottesville. TLDR version is to hold little rallies like this to normalize themselves in the public eye.

    It's almost like NBC is channeling The Journalist's Guide to Firearms Identification:

    The problem with looking for gun legislation I see is not the restrictions. But that this whole thing is a bit of a witch hunt and a knee jerk reaction.
    I can care less about NBC fucking up the details, what scares me is that the legislators who are writing these laws had even less of a clue about the topic.

    The ATF pretty much states that bump stocks are legal as per letter of the law, there nothing that actually restricts them.
    To write a new law concerning what parts can and cannot be used needs to be written by someone with at least a cursory understanding of the subject matter.

    How many times congress tries to vote on issues with little to no understanding on the matters they are deciding on?
    With the SOPA issue a while back, Congress brings in technicians, computer engineers and experts to testify and when the experts try to tell congress what they want to do is not technically possible, they scoff at them calling them bias.

    My problem is people want to call for legislation, but at no point is their any attempt to learn enough about the subject matter to ever make an informed decision.

    With some practice someone can be reasonably accurate with a M249 Saw. Its called firing in 3 to 5 round bursts (or even firing single shot) and have some trigger discipline.

    But then again if you are firing into a crowd, accuracy isn't much a factor.
