@Hi: Sam C, G, Alison, Droll, Sean, all the gang, especially the Right Reverend Revolution Rabbit, and Mr. Irwin. I must confess, I LOVE Americana like this boy-gun thing, I see the good side of it and try to remember that the politics and society of the time were different, that none of the contemporary ways of looking at this apply. Stepping off of soapbox now.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 3:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The Second Amendment say 'Arms' - not 'Guns' specifically. Therefore, I presume the neighborhood right-wingers will have no problem w/ my backyard Sherman tanks, nuclear missile silo & anthrax lab just over the fence from the schoolyard...

I do believe that kid grew up to be a provincial state legislator who attended the Mount Vernon Assembly last weekend. And used that gun as a prop.

  Wed. 12/18/13 3:25pm P-90:

RevRab, I've been saying this for years, the Founders did not intend to sanction what they would surely have recognized as weapons of war for the backyard. The second ammendment guarantees the right of communities to field a "militia" --which means if you live where there's a local police, sheriff, Nat. Guard, State Troopers, etc, then you are protected by the "well regulated militia" the Founders had in mind. This "God-given right as an American to bear any weapons I can get my hands on" thing is a Neoconservative vanity...

See, per the ridiculous interpretation of the 2nd Amendment popular on the Right, you and I have the right to stockpile female sex pheromone weapons, sweating/flatulence gas bombs, etc.
Surely NOT what Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, and all the groovy cats who dreamed up this country would have wanted--they would have thought widespread ownership of assault rifles and ammo etc. in an America of 300 million was literally insane.

P-90, That's an interesting theory, but in fact nobody knows what The Founding Fathers would have thought about militarized drones, genetically modified citizens, or cyber-warfare. I think I'm more afraid of the 220 year old Patent system than firearms.

@G: Oh, NewTOWN, I thought that said NewBRIDGE. Whew.

@Droll: yup, that patent system has become FUBAR, and the problems posed by that are very real and very big.

@Sam: Buck carried a "rocket gun" until WWII, the everything had to be "atomic" to sound up-to-date and properly futuristic. That barefoot American lad w/rolled-up dungarees, suddenly wanted something ATOMIC of his own, man.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 3:47pm Droll:

Glenn, By that reasoning the best way to combat patent abuse is by filing more patents... Which is exactly what has happened over the past decade. This sort of self-affirming problem is not unique to guns, butter has it, too.

@Rev: exactly, those not affected directly are enabled to live in denial. The only ones with the resources to try to change things, that do, are the few who've been touched directly---like Mrs. Brady, and that other congresswoman who lost a son or whatever and then fought for better regulation.

...Most Western industrial (wealthy) countries don't have these guns, & they seem okay. Just like most of them have figured out Health Care is expensive & everyone will need it (even if people don't think so @ age 20). So - I'm not buying it. Should we say that if heroin is illegal, only outlaws will have heroin, & do nothing? We could go back & forth on this...If someone invades your home w/ a gun w/ deadly intent, & you kill them 1st, I don't have a problem w/ it. I just wonder if we need any of these guns in the 1st place - & I don't want to live in the Wild West where the person w/ the biggest gun wins.

There are statistics for everything.
In fact in Connecticut there have been I think 36 deaths by long guns of any kind (3 from assault rifles) an assinine term by the way, in 2 decades.
I lived in Sandy Hook for 18 years, I just moved YEAH! and I attended many of the task force meetings and did a lot of research back during the hub bub. I have links just not readily available and they are not easily, yet are easily found if you have a clue. I have tried to shed a lot of the issue, as it is very emotional and painful.

Can you imagijne the outrage from the parents of the first 8-yr-old who is s accidently killed by a teacher who's "defending" himself and his (her?) students?

I don't dispute Kathy's #s. In fact, it supports my position - there are simply too many guns & too little of this 'personal responsibility'. Massive quantities of guns & 'personal responsibility' are antithetical to each other.

How do you prove the cause of something that did not happen?!

Damn phone won't leave me alone today... back in a bit.

I just thought it was a great dose of irony when the NRA was suggesting the best to protect our freedom was the keep our guns and basically post armed guards on every corner.

Guns also prevent polio, because no one has come down with it in a long time.

Why doesn't Canada have many mass shootings? Everyone there has guns.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 4:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

That is true GMMM.

also, ontario has +/-20% of the world's fresh water, so i'm not too worried about that, neither.

Canada never had a Civil War. We're a nation still in the throes of a tradition of violence to settle scores.

They never had Hatfields and McCoys either. Only British vs. French, kind of a sissyboy slap fight.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 4:47pm glenn:

well, not everybody here has guns, but there are a lot. and oddly enough, most of them are in rural canada, AND who has the highest crime rate? that's right, rural canada.

Guns are lame.

uh, carmichael, i suggest you visit quebec city. there weren't no sissy boys there.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 4:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The French weren't sissies in WW Uno either. Or in any # of places they enforced their Imperialism...

According to a 2010 report by Statistics Canada, the murder rate is higher outside big cities, and has been for at least a decade. The study measured homicides in the country’s 34 census metropolitan areas (CMA) — urban areas with a population of 100,000 or more — and found that in 2010 the average murder rate was 1.5 per 100,000 people. For non-CMAs, which encompass rural areas, the rate was 1.9.

For the period 2000 to 2009, the murder rate in CMAs compared to non-CMAs was less dramatic — 1.81 to 1.92 — but still suggested that living in the countryside was more deadly, statistically. (It's worth noting that Canada's rates are still very low compared to those in the U.S. The 2010 murder rate in New Orleans, for example, was 49.1 per 100,000 people.)

@ Glenn: Right on about water. I lived in Cali for years; the entire Los Angeles basin is supplied with fresh water by a single aquaduct system. And overdue for a big quake. When that happens, you'll have millions of people in an immense disaster area w/no fresh water available if the aquaduct is damaged.

See how everything leads back to Earthquake? The big hero is played by Heston, a big gun rights activist. And Marjoe's character is a National Guardsman who is repressed and neurotic and goes on a killing spree

I like Chris Rock's bit: “You don’t need no gun control, you know what you need? We need some bullet control. Men, we need to control the bullets, that’s right. I think all bullets should cost five thousand dollars… five thousand dollars per bullet… You know why? Cause if a bullet cost five thousand dollars there would be no more innocent bystanders.
Yeah! Every time somebody get shut we’d say, ‘Damn, he must have done something ... Shit, he’s got fifty thousand dollars worth of bullets in his ass.’
And people would think before they killed somebody if a bullet cost five thousand dollars. ‘Man I would blow your fucking head off…if I could afford it.’ ‘I’m gonna get me another job, I’m going to start saving some money, and you’re a dead man. You’d better hope I can’t get no bullets on layaway.’
So even if you get shot by a stray bullet, you wouldn't have to go to no doctor to get it taken out. Whoever shot you would take their bullet back, like "I believe you got my property.”

i like this ian matthews. i have a couple of his albums and they suffer from cheesy 70s production.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 5:20pm Carmichael:

I like all the Fairport-related bands, but I could never get into Matthews Southern Comfort. Strange ...
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 5:22pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

well I mean the mass killings of many people in one place like a school or a mall. I don't think this happens much in Canada.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 5:33pm Denise in DC:

Hearing the Ian Matthews track just sent me plunging nostalgically into the Internet for info about his old 70s tracks.

everyone who works balled and chained to an office chair in the eastern time zone has left the area.

..my guess has been DJs have tech shows them how many people are streaming & have the playlist up - ??...

I'm still wearing my ball n chain
  Wed. 12/18/13 5:41pm P-90:

Is that true, do DJs get "real time" stats on playlist use?
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 5:42pm Irwin:

Don't know, don't think so, don't care. Happy you're all tuned in. "You" = anyone.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 5:43pm Carmichael:

I'm in California, so I'll be balled and chained for a while.

Cheers - I wondered. I can see how if it was there - watching it go up & down would be something some would opt out of!...
