    The point is correct: the NRA was totally for gun control when the Black Panthers openly carried arms to protect themselves from police brutality. The NRA didn’t give one shit about Philando Castile.

    and yeah... ive been thinking about what age I should be giving my kids some form of phone. The school explicitly bans them but there are many reason I'd like to be able to contact them. Emergencies are one of them.
    Huh, I just thought it was my shitty browser (IE11).

    No, we'd just have a lot more dead blacks and minorities.

    I learned quite a bit about guns... from fucking politifact! wtf is happening?!?!

    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-me...d-las-vegas-s/

    That was a pretty solid read about suppressors. Lots I hadn't considered. Who and where a suppressor actually silences for, the difference between the gun's bang and the crack of the bullet, the fact that the room would have been able to do a superior job of any sort of acoustic stealth, etc.

    @allegro - this also addresses the potential for instant hearing damage.

    Whoa, interesting!!!

    A shooting weapon produces two sounds. One is the crack of the bullet, which can be heard on most video recordings of the shooting and is produced by the bullet traveling faster than the speed of sound. This is unaffected by suppressors.

    NBC News on MSN.com ∑ 7 hours ago

    A GOP senator running for governor in Georgia is giving away a bump stock, the modification apparently used by the Las Vegas shooter.


    Well that's not tone deaf.

    It's not tone deaf at all if he is trying to attract defiant gun owners. You will commonly see giveaways of a gun product that politicians are trying to ban.

    @allegro - yeah that was new to me too. But now it makes sense why subsonic ammo is a thing. It keeps the bullet from creating the sonic boom. It probably pairs well with a suppressor too. And before anyone decides to ban those, it just means the bullet has way less speed and effective distance.
