Once again, Gerry1of1 boils down everything I blathered on in my comment down to one sentence. I really need some sleep.

Who is Steven Crowder? I can appreciate the spirit of his rebuttal, but I could only get through three-quarters of this clip. If he wants anyone to take him seriously, he's going to have to choose between being YouTubing Rush Limbaugh 2.0 and a serious broadcaster with a little structure put into his delivery -- he was all over the place and it began to feel a little like a conservative Howard Stern Show. 

It's why Bill Nye isn't taken very seriously when it comes to hard science -- he'll make some good points, then go into his dog and pony show with a silly song and dance about sexuality. I did like the ice cream cartoon -- it was a dumbed-down look at sexual identity -- dumbed down so everyone could understand it. If he did the same video, but with scientists, scientific terminology, and turned it into an a traditional educational video, no one would watch. Like it or not, we live in a time where people with Gender Dysphoria or Gender Identity Disorder is a thing -- you can either fight it or go with it.

Huh? Where? Are there any sources on that? That seems wrong.

thezigrat That's good right? A healthy fear and respect for an instrument made to kill? I've debated about whether or not getting a firearm (with a lot of training, of course) and I still would never feel 100% comfortable with it in my home -- even in a safe.

"I just assume someone's going to accidentally get shot"

Interesting assumption there. Upon what do you base it?

Should I list every account of someone with a gun accidentally shooting themselves or the person next to them? Here's a good one about a guy who went turkey hunting a couple days ago and instead, shot his brother in the face as well as his other friend -- that's a two-fer!

And then you have this "gun instructor" we just saw a few weeks ago at a shooting range -- and he's trained! Accidental shootings that result in death or injury literally happens every day -- actually 83.5 times every day, on average.

I bet in the time it took you to read my reply up to this point, someone's gun accidentally went off.

On this map, it states that there were 30,215 shootings (that caused either death or injury) in the US, as recorded by the Gun Violence Archive from Dec. 5, 2014, to Dec. 5, 2015 -- and the author states that these are only the recorded numbers. 

That's 83.5 accidental gun shots per day. I'm not a gambler by nature, so when I see a gun, I'm going to get a little nervous.

Bias, facts, numbers, whatever.

Some?

megrendel It has been stated that the video from BART will not be released 'as some perpetrators may be minors.'

That's what pissed me off.
fancylad wrote:
skypirate Yep, I know what you mean. Also, I'm not a gun guy -- I don't own one and when I'm around one, I just assume someone's going to accidentally get shot, but I also appreciate how these little fuckers would think twice if they thought one of the passengers on the train they're about to hold up is carrying.

It's also frustrating that since the shitheads are under 18, cops won't share the video, and BART officials seem to be trying to sweep this one under the carpet. Multiple mob-robberies in the last 12 months? That doesn't say much for the Bay Area police.
