  1. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    I mean, vehicle registration assists in solving crimes even in the instances when the vehicle has been stolen. Really, this whole argument that "criminals won't follow these laws" is inane to the...

    Re: Ferguson

    You do see how that statement is different than what I was saying, yes? I am talking about the likelihood that a violent perp is white or black. For any random perp (of a violent crime), he is more...

    Re: Ferguson

    I am confused, there are more white violent crime offenders than there are black violent crime offenders every year. Why would I assume that the violent criminal I would face would be black?

    Re: Why Hardcore Liberalism fails

    It is actually not that difficult. Any market that requires an exorbitant amount of initial capital tends to monopolize naturally, and a lot of markets are like that.
