There's a famous saying that, "Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them."
I can't recall the originator - but with recent events in America - and the resulting pathetic rhetoric about political behavior, ignoring the smoking gun/elephant in the room - can America ever shed its historical feudal right to bear arms? Does anyone else think its about time it did?
There really is no need for a civilian to bear arms in the modern USA and despite all the laws - and the impenetrably powerful gun loonie lobby - isn't it about time American politicians grew spines and decided that this really is enough.
A little girl, born on 9/11/2001 lost her most basic and precious right, life itself because another man had the right to carry a gun. Americans you have Megan's law - how about a law to remember this little girl and abandon your primitive right to hold a tool which serves no purpose than to take life.
I note the the people most pro guns are also the most right-wing, pro-Life and pro-God - and if that doesn't prove what an anachronism this law is, I don't know what does.

Yeah, spellcheckers are decent for finding the occasional blatant typo, but they're usually pretty worthless for grammar. If you make a typo on a 3 or 4 letter word, it will often end up being another recognized word, and it slips right through. Even word-processor grammar-checkers often screw things up and mis-mark things, because they don't understand when you're using a less common application of a word.
Still, it doesn't hurt to run Firefox or some other browser with a built-in spellchecker. Wait, does IE have one now? I haven't used that in 6 or 7 years.
Interesting article. In Bowling for Columbine, Michael Moore pointed out that Canadians own as many guns per capita as Americans, but they seldom shoot each other. In Windsor, across the river from Detroit, the police chief said there had been one gun murder in the previous ten years. And the shooter (surprise!) was from Detroit. Canadians shoot ducks and deer, but Americans shoot each other. Brits apparently smuggle guns and use them in unspecified crimes. How many of those crimes involved gun killings, I wonder. I would like to make a point here, but my apples-to-oranges conversion calculator needs recalibrating. (I took it to a faculty meeting yesterday, and it hasn't been right since.)
And somehow, I would still rather face a single-shot screwdriver than a pistol with 31 bullets in the clip.
Nope. I got together with someone more interesting than you guys.
Wow, thanks for the education. It makes ever so much difference when you know the correct terminology. Is not the clip inserted into the magazine? Are not the cartridges (wouldn't want to piss you off by calling them bullets) in the clip?
You would win with a single shot screwdriver? But, but . . . what if I had a shoelace? Screwed then, aren't you?
Yes it does.
Edit: No it doesn't.
