Groden, your penchant for stereotyping folks seems to know no bounds. Your understanding of the Constitution, on the other hand, seems somewhat limited. And your lack of empathy for those killed in mass shootings -- and for their families -- appears non-existent. It's as if the threat posed by shooters with weapons is somehow less than the threat posed to your misunderstanding of the Constitution.
And finally, so I'm clear: I'm a Democrat. I own three guns. I know how to use them. I hunt my own meat so I am not subject to the processed meat industry. If you want to give me grief, I can guarantee you that I will not "cower." And I will be happy to defend your right to your opinion, even though I respectfully disagree with it.
Now, back to trading.

Sometimes I wish I could thank my own post. A post on a thread not about trading and a post not about anything at all. A post that simply celebrates life amidst gloom of so much death. Lets hope that mass shootings go out of style as there hasn't been one in quite sometime.
After receiving multiple complaints about the user Grodon in recent days, I have banned the user.

Just reposting as the hyperlink was bad
Its well thought out video and accurately explains the US issue as both a problem of exceptionally high lethality of gun related crime peculiar to the US plus ridiculous availability and unskilled gun owners.
As someone from Rep, of Ireland who lived in the the UK a lot too I know no adults who have been affected by guns there. Although I have relatively few US friends and acquaintances I know three who died by gun suicide, another's 15 year old shot accidentally through the wall by a neighbor (also committing suicide and somehow missed, I'm not joking)...
Its the gun suicides that worry me more than anything. Rarely do guns give a second chance.
Literally just today I had to help a very distressed American friend out who was about to be arrested over an unpaid/unaffordable fine because her cat got lost and the local animal shelter decided to crush her underfoot. A nice woman with no record, working two jobs and who was genuinely not negligent but the county knew they could extort her. In Europe this would simply be regarded as racketeering by officials but as people are truly horrible to each other in the US... no wonder shoot to kill is the norm?
