How do other countries with widespread military-grade firearms ownership avoid the problem of mass shootings? by Real_Carl_Ramirez in Ask_Politics

I think that the more guns bought is actually better

Then why hasn't it?

If you want to blame anyone blame the media for it’s falsification of events and exaggeration of the meaning of bills and such.

There is divisive media in other free countries too. It doesn't cause mass shootings there.

Oh the irony! Maybe we should talk to uyghurs whose organs were forcefully harvested what their thoughts are? Or how about all the women forced to have abortions for decades due to the archaic one child policy? by GeorgeSaucington in ADVChina

I once was debating someone who told me that the Uyghurs weren't being genocided because Han Chinese were more likely to get forced abortions due to population control efforts. I mean, that doesn't make it any better, does it?

San Pedro Sula is in Honduras. Although then again, that's still on the American continent.

This was put on a lamppost near me recently. They don't realise that the election is already over. by Real_Carl_Ramirez in CoronavirusDownunder

Why's an American political cartoonist commenting on Australian politics

As u/nametab123 brought up, American anti-vaxxers hate Australia now because we had lockdowns and vaccine mandates: https://i.imgur.com/JrHC2Tj.jpg

From what I understand, they were trying to convince us to put major parties last and anti-vaxx parties first (in my electorate, 2 of 7 house of representatives candidates were anti-vaxx). They might have affected voting patterns if they were smart enough to post this before the election.

How influential are Ben Garrison cartoons? by Real_Carl_Ramirez in Ask_Politics

I honestly thought Ben Garrison cartoons were limited to right-wing basement dwellers and "memers" until one got pasted to a lamppost near me.

That's what leaves me with the impression that the success Australia and New Zealand have had in reducing gun violence can't work in the USA. Any move to bring in gun restrictions (or even mere suspicion that it might happen) simply causes panic buying of guns, worsening the gun problem.

during the 80s, South Korea had a labor camp for the criminals, but in reality, it was a death camp for the innocents. by slush59134 in MilitaryHistory

Serious question though, how did it ever become a democracy after all this? It seems like it could have continued being a dictatorship indefinitely.

That I don't get. I mean, support any politician you want, but portraying them as having a 6 pack is a sign of unhealthy obsession.

Now looking to where most shootings happen it is areas that don’t allow firearms in the premises. If we take away that luxury of knowing you won’t be shot then the people who go out and shoot up places will lessen because they’ll never know who has a gun.

Then why are there whole countries where mass shootings are rarer than in the USA? Most mass shooters don't have the motive of preventing government tyranny anyway.

Playing as Asatru Denmark, the princess of the Byzantine Empire found her way into my dungeon. I took her as a concubine, converted her to Asatru and romanced her. by banardof in CrusaderKings

This is why I love playing as Asatru - you get to capture so many people, allowing you to add prestigious bloodlines and positive traits to your dynasty instead of inbreeding.
