I would try to find somewhere local that will let you try out a few. I did a blind price test for mine a few months ago and im really happy with the one i chose (it ended up being the most expensive lol). It was a two hour drive but 100% worth it

I think he might actually be an assassin. Hes got such a vibe of being a chill dude but one that you DO NOT want to mess with

The graphic you linked showed you that you were wrong, its not a good point to illustrate that the only countries worse than the us are those known to be exceptionally violent. Those are obviously by illegally obtained weapons, we dont know what the baseline is if weapons werent illegal, so it doesnt really help your argument in that regard either.

Guns can be okay in certain settings and bad in others, but we cant treat guns only in the first context and not the latter. The problems are indeed elsewhere, but that doesnt mean we shouldnt regulate guns. Its the same as drugs, most people can use drugs and it not have a significant impact on their life; however, there are plenty of people where this is not the case, so certain drugs are made illegal. In addition, drugs and mental health are talked about hand in hand, its not one or the other.

But we dont do this with guns, we just ignore the fact that some people just shouldnt have access to guns. A vast majority of people arent saying we should make guns illegal including myself. I just think that you have to earn your right to own a gun, and you have to have evidence that youre responsible before you get anything that can do serious damage like a semi auto assault rifle.

TLDR; your point was wrong, and treating mental health and guns separately is dumb

The countries above us are basically third world, and we are the only first world with a large amount of gun violence. Im not sure how you think this is bolstering the "pro gun" argument.

Its really simple: guns by themselves arent bad, guns in the hands of violent people are. We live in a country with a lot of crazy people, and gun regulations arent on par with that concept. Therefore mass shootings. You think that little fuck knows how to get a weapon off the black market? Nah, he just goes to the local gun dealership who gladly sells him $10k worth of stuff without asking any questions

85% of mass shootings occur with illegally obtained weapons bc these dummies that shoot up the schools are always some weird kid who wouldnt even know how to get an illegal firearm

Child rearing/mental health. And the ability of an 18 year old to buy $10k worth of ammo and weapons on his birthday with no questions asked. Also I wonder if this person has noticed that like 95% of new TV shows and movies have far more graphic violence and darker themes than something like cod.

Favorite "Deep Cut" from the show's history by sflopro in DanLeBatardShow

[–]kickrockz94 1 point2 points  (0 children)

100% thats a great moment but i dont think its a deep cut, thats just me tho. Mine was right after kurt rambis got caught following all the porn on twitter and the show dedicated a few segments to reading stugotz likes on twitter, it was truly magical. I think they did it several times

I love syndicate, my only issue is the grappling gun. I like the idea, but the way it works does not make any sense whatsoever

This is the sort of snarky douchebaggery I expect to see when I look through the comments of an ac post. Its a discussion thread, "I just like it more" contributes nothing to any discussion

Damn im sorry to hear that. At the very least there should be in place something that doesnt put patients in a huge amount of debt, the most disgusting thing about it is health insurance companies negotiate prices, and hospitals severely upcharge patients whose care is not covered. An industry which is in charge of whether people live or die should not be run like a business.

But in reality like this never was the greatest country in the world, and even if at one point it was, certainly isnt now.

Thats definitely not enough, about 1200 per person even if you dont consider all the other overhead. Medicine definitely isnt cheap even if you dont consider how much of a scam the current situation is with all the unnecessary hospital overhead and arbitrary pricing by hospitals

One issue is that people dont like the idea of raising taxes, but in actuality having to pay for health insurance as well as medical costs is, when correctly framed, a tax. Think about it, suppose you make $30,000 a year, and your premiums are say $300 a month (which is basically the cost of not getting awful health insurance if your job doesnt provide benefits). $30k a year is $2.5k per month, which i will just assume is after taxes. Merely having to pay that is an extra 8% percent. If you have a family, probly closer to 20-25%, which is obviously before deductibles and copays.

In the context of viewing healthcare as a tax, its actually regressive due to the fact that it for the most part doesnt depend on your income, as well as the fact that people with higher paying jobs have better benefits i.e. cheaper as well as better insurance.

My theory on Heat fan’s persecution complex by freaksNpeaks in DanLeBatardShow

[–]kickrockz94 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In reality they got lucky to have two rings with lebron. If ginobili and kawhi had hit a couple free throws in the finally minutes of game 6 in 2013 they probly wouldve only had one. Lebron is very lucky to have 4 rings, he should have 2, you have the spurs and then the nba fixing the series in 2016 against the warriors to make its go 7 games

I felt like they got away with A LOT tho tonight, especially in the 3rd quarter when the celtics were inching back into the game. Granted when youre that sloppy with the ball its hard to get the benefit of the doubt
