    Politics

    I'm not anti-gun but I am anti-incompetent-idiot.

    The NRA actually started out as a gun safety organization. They really should be championing mandatory gun safety education for gun owners. After all, they are likely to be the ones providing the education.

    At least you've got guns.

    We have a law that makes it illegal for certain people to be together in public. If caught, they are most likely denied bail and put into 23-hour solitary confinement for months while they await trial.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...y-9040144.html

    By 'certain people' I mean they say they target bikies. And by 'law' I mean the quaintly named VLAD (Vicious Lawless Association Disestablisment Bill 2013). And if you read the 15-page document you will not see any mention of bikies, meaning this law applies to anyone the government deems worth targeting.

    A new law in the wings will cause party hosts to be liable for $12,000 fines or jail time if their guests become out of control.

    Welcome to Qld, where you get one hour of sunlight if you're lucky.

    We similarly limit associations of certain people in the US, but typically as conditions of parole for convicted felons. There's anti-gang loitering laws, but they're just municipal ordinances and require that they be in an area of high narcotic sales (like a couple square blocks, not a whole neighborhood), and be given a dispersal warning beforehand.

    I dunno where to put this, but I'm spamming it everywhere.

    I'm sure most of you have heard, but Net Neutrality has essentially been gutted. That's a bad thing.

    So, sign the below petition, and hope the White House will notice it/put some pressure on the FCC.
