    Yeah I put him on ignore a while ago for this very reason and its annoying to still see people quoting him.


    Edit: Shooter from the Boise mall shooting the other day has died. The person who first confronted the shooter inside the mall and tried to get others to safety and was ultimately killed was a transgendered military vet. The GQP is probably having a meltdown about how they should react to that: praise a vet for her selfless act or throw hate at her for being trans.
    There will be no conflict. The GOP will simply do their tried and true solution. Pretend they didn't exist.

      No. It's a trying to figure out a tragedy question. (An uncocked hammer is about the only safety on an old cowboy single action revolver.)

        • The gun was cocked because the scene involved him doing a cross body quickdraw. Guess what you do in that situation once you pull the gun out of the holster...ever watched a western before? (hint: that click you hear is the hammer going back)

          You and the RWNJ seem to think he was just fooling around doing tricks for the workers...HE WAS FUCKING DOING AS HE WAS DIRECTED TO DO FOR THE FUCKING MOVIE!! It is a damned stunt and you and your cohort are just being disingenuous trolls. This is not Cletus showing off for his friends and killing them with his dad's gun because he wasn't being safe...Baldwin was doing exactly what he was supposed to be doing at that time.

          Oh and BTW...if there are any charges it won't be for Baldwin it will be for the prop person who has a history of this issue. Suck it up and deal.

          • Heard an actual movie armorer interviewed this morning. He said he cannot come to any conclusion that involves Baldwin being at fault. He said that just about every protocol that is supposed to be followed on a movie set was being broken in this case. Whether or not producers on the film are culpable for the fact that the movie set is breaking all the rules is not something he spoke about. And I would not know.

                • If you listen to Sic and the other mouth breathers on this, movies should ditch real-looking weapons and use finger guns and just say "pew pew!"

                    Then it would be “the woke mob have ruined movies” like we ruined the James Bond opening credits

                              • An interesting piece in the Minneapolis paper regarding the upcoming SCOTUS gun case out of NY. I haven't linked to the article because it's behind a paywall that most of you probably don't have, but I'll try to summarize it.

                                Basically, the author sort of reads the "tea leaves" pertaining to the case based upon the process whereby the Court accepted review.

                                The NY case involves a law that said that you can't get a conceal/carry permit unless you can demonstrate a "special need" for self-defense." The two plaintiffs were denied the permit. One of the plaintiffs claimed a need based upon a string of recent crimes in his neighborhood. The second simply stated he had no need for the permit.

                                The plaintiffs lost in the lower court and petitioned the SCOTUS for review. It takes four justices to accept cert, so observers assumed it would be quickly granted, given the makeup of the court.

                                However, cert was apparently considered multiple times without an order accepting it. Finally, on like the third or fourth conference where it was discussed, cert was accepted. But it was accepted with a completely different "issue" to be decided.

                                Instead of the broad issue as to whether the second amendment authorizes law abiding citizens to carry guns outside their homes, a much more narrow issue was imposed by the court, basically asking whether the state's denial of petitioners applications for conceal carry permits for self defense violated the second amendment. The re-writing of the issue by the Court is very rare.

                                The author suggests that this change was first necessary to get at least four votes to grant cert, and that it forecasts a decision based entirely on the facts. The "facts" surrounding the two different petitioners are starkly different, which suggests a decision that allows for some gun control. A law requiring a demonstrated need for self defense meets the second amendment requirements, but if you use that to just deny all applications, it doesn't fit within the second amendment.
                                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
