  1. Nevada 2018 MWC basketball champs 2 peat

    "2 peat"? Seriously? Has an entire generation become borderline illiterate?
  2. Typical of the statist left. When arguments fail, use force. It's a long tradition.
  3. Boise State Baseball mystique?

    You call it "swag", most call it spasms.
  4. Now the emotional nature of the reactions to this are showing. Step back from all the emotion and look at facts and figures. The law should never deal directly with "feelings". The 2nd Amendment is not about sport, hunting, or self-defense against criminals. It is the right that enforces and guarantees all of the others against a government that might seek to curtail said rights. Millions have died in establishment and defense of those rights, yet now we are arguing about giving up those rights for a few lives. Seems like an insult to the majority sacrifice...
  5. And there is the perfect example of trading liberty for a little "safety". What do you suppose your odds of being killed by an "assault" weapon are? How about your odds of dying in a car accident?
  6. If Adam Lanza had thought there was a possibility a teacher was, I'd wager good money he'd have just killed his mom and himself.
  7. And that's where I have a problem. Feelings should never be the justification for legislation or the abridgment of rights. Look at TSA and flying. It's all window dressing at tremendous cost to make people "feel" safe. Cockpit doors are reinforced and locked now. Just have the possibility of armed pilots and train airport security in the art of threat profiling and let's dispense with the useless idiocy of what is our current airport security,
  8. And yet, as gun ownership goes up, gun violence goes down...
  9. Nope. He legally purchased it despite having been reported to the FBI as a threat by two different individuals. FBI screwed the pooch on this one. Thank God we have the federal government around to protect us from people like him...
  10. And yet, "assault" weapons account for far fewer deaths than other guns...
  11. Most alcohol-related deaths and mayhem are not a result of driving.
  12. How big is the problem? From 2005-2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day.1 An additional 332 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents.2 About one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger.1 For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.1 More than 50% of drowning victims treated in emergency departments (EDs) require hospitalization or transfer for further care (compared with a hospitalization rate of about 6% for all unintentional injuries).1,2 These nonfatal drowning injuries can cause severe brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities such as memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functioning (e.g., permanent vegetative state).3,4
  13. While we're at it, following that logic, let's ban cars and cops too... What isn't reported is how often gun ownership saves lives and property.
  14. Most Wyoming fans don't need to be intoxicated to curb stomp a self-righteous, scrawny chest-thumping byu* fan. It's harder to have a clear memory of the moment to savor later.
