Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

another shooting today, how many will it take?

Northern Arizona University shooting: One killed, 3 hurt - CNN.com


And I'm sure some people are sitting there reading this saying it doesn't matter how many people die from shootings, they shouldn't have to give up their guns.

[O]n May 4, 1970—members of the Ohio National Guard fired on unarmed student protesters at Kent State, killing four and seriously injuring nine others. The horrific massacre is regarded as a historic moment of public unrest during the Vietnam War.



Just one of the reasons Americans are paranoid of their own Government...

"between state-level gun death rates and state gun laws" of course your allowed to take guns between states. Be a lot more interesting if he did the analysis on international rates instead. Be an interesting analysis for some data scientists's you'd need to get some decent data though.

ban??? nobody says anything about banning, the right word is 'control'. But this is very typical, it designs to stir up pro gun crowd into a frenzy as usual.

Maybe I missed something here, but my reaction to the tweet was that the people who DO want to Ban the first three things are exactly the same people who DON'T want to ban the 4th/guns.

It is what it is. America is OBSESSED with guns and they're paranoid, paranoid of their own government. It's always been this way. I have a lot of friends who own weapons and anytime I bring up the government coming for their guns it's like there's a chemical change in their brain. Something deep in their core is set off like scraping nails on a chalk board. Most of them say "let them come and take my guns and there will be a shoot out" lol. In all honesty I think they're partly just blowing off steam, but this is a ubiquitous response among all people I know who have a gun. Some of these people were perceived as educated, sound individuals (at least before they commit the act). Many people who commit these crimes are educated and sound individuals.

This is exactly my experience as well. Mention gun control and people suddenly start acting as if you your raping their wife and children. It's a real shame that the same people can't show half the passion about issues that effect the country (and world).
