    If I were Biden, I'd skip going to Saudi Arabia, his life could be in danger.

    The problem is not the "gun"; it are the "humans" who use it when frustrated as well have a tool to get it their way in this world with their "animal" instinct. It shows clearly the "mental" health of an country. The "mental health" here is "downhill" here all the way, because of "incompetence" all around, which is created by the lack of proper education. In the education field there is much more attention on how the world "economy" is so much more important than "mental health". All the "modern tools" overload affects the brain in an huge way. In the "stone age" your only worry was getting your "food" on the "rock" with all the means you had at those times. No computers or cars or "politics" or "material greed" . Looking at all the "complications of "modern life" and the things which happen around you as well the constant stream of daily information drives people nuts. All the time you have to "do" things to stay afloat, which is detrimental to being "normal". You don't live yourself anymore; you are being "lived" by the (not normal) society around you nowadays.

    No wonder that "humanity" with all its inventions and "war/killing" tools eventually will destroy itself. The "cavemen" at least could relax as they wished and were happy with an bearskin and meat and an camp fire only.

    Well Dutch, it's a matter of self control, trying to keep one's sanity.

    I once was thinking of writing a book, it would have been entitled "people I could have killed, one's I should have killed, but didn't.

    Why? Because things in life have angered me. Beginning in my childhood, my father used to beat the hell out of my mom, he whipped both my brother and I with a wide belt nearly every day. He should have been my very first justifiable homicide. But, I let bygones be bygones, but never really deep down forgave him for the way he treated all of us. When he kicked my brother out, he stabbed him in his neck on the way out. Later, he grabbed me by my neck and held me against a wall and choked me until my lights almost went out, my mom stopped him from killing me. I ended up running away from home at the age of 15. He should have been killed for trying to kill us.

    There are laws on the books nowadays that are supposed to protect spouses, girlfriends, and minors, but sometimes, those laws are useless.

    My last and latest homicide would have been the property manager where we once lived, he tried blaming us for the sewer lateral blockage by accusing my wife and I of throwing baby wipes down the toilet and causing the problems. Well, I got over hating his guts and let it be. I never have killed or beat the hell out of anyone in my entire life, but that doesn't mean that I didn't want to.

    p.s., don't tell anyone that I've told you about these things because they're kind of embarrassing.

    The earf is rotating the wrong way, counterclockwise, screwing itself off instead of on, it's all I can figure.

    Texans want to secede. GOOD. Next time they get a hurricane, and oil well blowing up, or some other disaster, they can fund their own rescues and not ask uncle Sam for one dime.

    New Mexico just held an event called the Albuquerque Guns to Gardens.

    People who turned in their guns received a gift certificate for $250 - and hundreds of guns were turned in. The guns will be melted down and turned into gardening tools.

    Swords to ploughshares (or plowshares) is a concept in which military weapons or technologies are converted for peaceful civilian applications.

    The phrase originates from the Book of Isaiah:

    Many peoples shall come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths." For out of Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. –

    —?Isaiah 2:3–4

    The ploughshare (Hebrew: ??? ’ê?, also translated coulter) is often used to symbolize creative tools that benefit humankind, as opposed to destructive tools of war, symbolized by the sword (Hebrew: ????? ?ere?), a similar sharp metal tool with an arguably opposite use.

    In addition to the original Biblical Messianic intent, the expression "beat swords into ploughshares" has been used by disparate social and political groups.

    An ongoing example as of 2013 is the dismantling of nuclear weapons and the use of their contents as fuel in civilian electric power stations, the Megatons to Megawatts Program. Nuclear fission development, originally accelerated for World War II weapons needs, has been applied to many civilian purposes since its use at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, including electricity and radiopharmaceutical production.

    New Zealand officials collected about 56,000 firearms as part of a sixth-month gun buyback program that ended Friday, according to a news release from the country’s Minister of Police.

    The New Zealand government instituted the program after 51 people were fatally shot at two Islamic houses of worship in March. The man accused in the shooting, Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant, 28, has pleaded not guilty to 92 charges, including 51 counts of murder.

    New Zealand’s parliament voted almost unanimously in April in favor of changing the country’s gun laws and banning all military-style semi-automatic weapons.

    About 33,000 people took part in the program, which required gun owners to hand over newly prohibited weapons. In addition to the 56,250 firearms collected, officials expect to buyback another 1,600 once validated. Another 2,700 were modified to be lawful firearms.

    “Police also confirm they can account for 15,037 E-category firearms or military style semi-automatics held by 5,060 people, slightly higher than original estimates,” according to the release. Most of those guns have been handed in but some are being held by people who are seeking exemptions. This group includes collectors and gun dealers.

    More than 194,000 prohibited parts, like magazines that can hold more than 10 cartridges and pistol grips, were turned over. According to Nash, the numbers are preliminary numbers and will be updated in January.

    The buyback cost New Zealand about $102.2 million in payments to gun owners, officials said in the release.

    A report by the Swiss-based Small Arms Survey estimated there are 1.2 million civilian owned firearms in New Zealand as of 2017, about 26 per every 100 citizens.

    Canada also just announced a mandatory gun gun buy back program.

    Although it would make sense to have a similar program here, it won't happen for quite a while. However, it appears that the Senate is on the verge of passing a bi-partisan gun control law, so at least SOME progress is being made.

    These programs, gun buy backs, are about total bullshit, they're meaningless, the guns turned in are not the ones which need to be turned in, how about that. Most are probably non-operational, they're probably rusted pieces of junk.

    If people want gun control, rewrite the constitution and do away with the second amendment or amend the worthless piece of paper it's written on.

    I watch Judge Judy almost everyday, in her older shows, she would say the same thing you do Dutch, this country is going to hell, I tend to believe it is too, so I'm in agreement with you on nearly everything you post. It's sad to see where we're headed.

    If the minions of Trump did nothing wrong, why do they need to be pardoned?
