I mean if you dont like the Kleck and Gertz study that was affirmed by the CDC how about The 2013 study by the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council which found “Defensive uses of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence, although the exact number remains disputed” and “ Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year, in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008 “

In addition to the Founding Fathers considering owning guns a right, they were also wrong on the issues of women’s’ rights, slavery, homosexuality and others. The Second Amendment, people say? It’s called an Amendment for a reason. It can be repealed if enough people want to (which most Americans unfortunately don’t).
Republicans and mainstream Democrats alike need to stop holding the FF up as if they were saints who did no wrong. When the rest of the developed countries believe healthcare is a right and guns should be a privilege for the select few, they are correct, whereas the US has been on the wrong side of human history ever since it was founded.

If there was an outright ban on guns people like myself will still keep them as is our right.
That’s fine. Prison is an industry in the US, and I’m sure they’ll be quite pleased with the increase in business.


@YourPalContrail
According to the CDC guns are used defensively up to 3,000,000 times a year.
And that number is problematic for a number of statistical reasons.
The CDC asked 12,870 individuals about defensive gun use over the three samples.That’s a relatively large sample but note that this means that just 117 people reported a defensive gun use, i.e. ~1%. In comparison, 12,656 people (98.33%) reported no use, 11 people (0.09%) said they didn’t know and 86 people (0.67%) refused to answer. People answering surveys can be mistaken and some lie and the reasons go both ways. Some people might be unwilling to answer because a defensive gun use might have been illegal (Would these people refuse to answer?). On the other hand, mischievous responders might report a defensive gun use just because that makes them sound cool.
The deep problem, however, is not miscodings per se but that miscodings of rare events are likely to be asymmetric. Since defensive gun use is relatively uncommon under any reasonable scenario there are many more opportunities to miscode in a way that inflates defensive gun use than there are ways to miscode in a way that deflates defensive gun use.
Simply put, there is plenty of research which suggests that number should not be accepted as valid.

Mom always preferred Luna over Celestia, which on the long run resulted in Celestia being much more able to take rejection unlike her sister.

And yet it was federal agents, “cops” by any reasonable definition, who finally stopped the carnage. I think there’s a hierarchy of bastardry we have to acknowledge. Local cops: utter bastards. Scum of the universe. State troopers: mostly bastards. Occasionally do the right thing by sheer dumb luck. Federales: kinda bastards. Actually kinda cool sometimes?
In one sense it’s counter-intuitive, especially after the War on Drugs, the War on Terror, and the War on Migrants. DHS should not be the least bastardly people in the room. In any room. But in another sense it makes perfect sense. Higher-profile jobs have higher standards. Less prestigious jobs get the dregs. You see the same pattern among politicians: as much as we bitch about the people in Congress, they’re nothing compared to some of the psychopaths in state and local government.

It’s this stupid sense of entitlement which is a big part of the problem.
And American homicides are much worse than over here - if they’d be even worse without guns, then that’s just you admitting it’s basically a third-world country.

Probably some fan editing IMDb. Josh only voiced Sprout in A Maretime Bay Adventure and there’s no character named Bluebelle (yet? I can’t predict character names, so everything is possible).
Oh, related to what just I said: I checked IMDb and Joshua Graham seems to be a voice actor from Toronto, so 50% of chances he may actually be Sprout’s new VA. BUUUUUUUUUT it wasn’t said anywhere that the character will return in the second episode (first regular episode?) as IMDb currently says.

It’s kind-of ironic if Posey creating that pony-eating flower is canon, earth ponies arguably have the most powerful type of magic right now.

Matthew 5:33-37, Ecclesiastes 5:5, and James 5:2 warn readers not to make promises, because failing to keep them will lead to worse things.
For vulgar and bad words, Ephesians 4:15 and 5:4, and Proverbs 4:24 prohibit such from being spoken.
