  1. Evolution

    Nonetheless they are still primates, primate is not a genus...
  2. Evolution

    The "die off" is a misconception, fluctuating predator populations linked to fluctuating lemming populations not mass starvation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemming This is also not true, natural disasters often bring about extinction perhaps most famous of these is the demise of the dinosaurs but many others tied to different events bear this out. Again not true The cladogram below shows one possible classification sequence of the living primates,[16][17] with groups that use common (traditional) names are shown on the right. Primatomorpha
  3. Yay, GUNS!

    Umm I was replying to Swansont
  4. Yay, GUNS!

    The point is that a huge number of guns are already in circulation, the price of gold goes up and up but it is still in demand. Guns pass back and forth through the population like money. Make no mistake school shootings are not just about assault rifles. Please define regular guns...
  5. Yay, GUNS!

    I know what you mean, I would bet that within a mile radius of me right now there is enough guns to load a semi...
  6. Yay, GUNS!

    I never said we shouldn't do anything, I am just stating the obstacles that have to be overcome. And BTW I do think opiates should be legal, the war on drugs has cost us more lives than the drugs themselves ever did..
  7. Yay, GUNS!

    By black market I am talking about the sales from one private citizen to another, even if the gun can be traced back to its original owner all they have to say is that it was stolen and they are out of danger to prosecute. Also there is a huge number of unregistered guns as well that are traded back and forth for both money goods and services. Also there is an active trade in guns from black market dealers who traffic guns and who buy guns from people who need the money and then resales them with no check except cash. Beside the really huge numbers of guns not registered the number of guns passing through the economy is large, large enough that costs are still depressed on most guns. Things like assault rifles go up drastically but regular guns not so much. The market is glutted with them...
  8. Yay, GUNS!

    I do know what you mean, splitting wood is my go to relaxation...
  9. Yay, GUNS!

    Sounds like a good start! (hand saw? what are you Paul Bunyan?, I used an electric chain saw, I'm a wus evidently)
  10. Yay, GUNS!

    And therein lies the rub, most people who oppose gun control think that once they give in gun control with increase until no one can have guns. Even a hint of this will alienate many people...
  11. Yay, GUNS!

    Exactly!
  12. Yay, GUNS!

    Citizens united has to be repealed, this idea of unchained capitalism has to be stopped, the idea that only one type of gov can work when even our country is a combination of capitalist and socialist.. You are correct I misread this post:
  13. Yay, GUNS!

    I disagree, Trump was elected and he has the support of the people who have real influence...
  14. Yay, GUNS!

    You are probably right, Hitler was the missing word. No doubt, we need to fight for that. I look forward to you getting elected but some would say unless you are rich you can't get elected without the support of the elite who own the gov... You have my support. Bernie Sanders? We have to destroy their ability to bribe government officials...
