  1. There might be some constitutional issues involced in privatizing it. Article 1 Section 8.
  2. I watched a musket demo at The Alamo yesterday. Maybe those "originalist" members of SCOTUS should do the same.
  3. It's what trolls do. What did you expect?
  4. You attributed the quote to the wrong person.
  5. The OP didn't specify what kind of example. The USA right now is a great example of how a populist demagogue can polarize a country and how possession of wealth can corrupt the rule of law.
  6. Another crony goes to the big house. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2024/04/10/trump-weisselberg-sentencing-new-york/
  7. Kari Lake has learned well from Trump The Art of the Goebbels. "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." Generally attributed to JG (without a documented primary source).
  8. Meanwhile in Arizona, the clock was turned back to 1873 when women were still chattels.
  9. It sure makes equal justice under the law look like an empty slogan.
  10. I wonder how many science deniers are going out of their way be be in the path of totality tomorrow. Maybe those scientists are all wrong and there will be no eclipse.
  11. Laws against sexual assault aren't effective because sexual predators don't follow the law. Donald Trump being a perfect example.
  12. About 21 percent of guns confiscated by police in Chicago are traced back to gun shops across the border in Indiana.
  13. Why should we tolerate any politician who is a proven prolific liar, a proven rapist, a proven adulterer, an admitted sexual predator, and a proven fraud?
  14. About six in ten "crime guns" seized by Chicago Police originated from gun shops outside of Illinois, according to a 2017 report issued by the department. Crime guns are defined by law enforcement as those that are "illegally possessed, used, or suspected to be used in furtherance of a crime." In about 95 percent of cases, the person found in possession of a crime gun is not the original purchaser of the weapon, the report said. The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence ranks Illinois' gun laws as the eighth toughest in the country. The state requires citizens to have a permit to buy firearms and to report stolen or lost guns. Residents who want to sell their guns privately are also required to solicit a background check from state officials and to submit documentation of the sale. No such laws exist in neighboring states such as Indiana, making them a target for traffickers seeking to sell weapons on the black market in Chicago. About 21 percent of guns confiscated by police in Chicago are traced back to gun shops across the border in Indiana, a short drive from the city. After conducting gun offender surveys and crime analysis, the CPD concluded that "states with lax gun laws like Indiana and Mississippi are a primary target for gang members and their gun trafficker source buyers."
