Hand over that plastic straw too.
I prefer the Polar Pop to the Big Gulp. I don't know wheter it's the way the cup is made or the ice is crushed but one will last for hours without the ice melting enough to water it down.
whoa now, gotta have a sissy stick when you're toting a BG
>21 y/o to own a handgun
Amnesty to reduce guns in circ.
No prior felony arrests (prob already the case)
Have a license and required testing.
That’s it. Likely, some of that is in place. Would raise age, and ensure other reg’s consistently met in all states, and amnesty program.
So kids under 21 will just know they can't use their parent's gun?
All of that is already in place. Care to take a guess at how many felons have a gun?
it’s less about the guns than it is about perceived opportunity. if we could put more economic levers in place things may change while suspecting it will take a generation to effect real change if possible at all.
if real jobs could come from businesses/manufacturers, etc. who are incentivized to locate, and paths to home ownership, etc are created in those areas, real change can happen
will never happen on the scale necessary to move the needle cause the elected party has too much invested in the status quo
Biodegradable or jail.
You assumed a lot of gun crime could be removed simply by providing jobs and opportunity. Unfortunately that isn't necessarily a workable equation. There is a big segment of society that isn't going to be happy with a good job or a nice little home. They want big money and they want what other people have. There are people who will break the law no matter what they have or no matter what they get. And then of course you have generations of people who have come to rely on the government for everything and undoing that will take just as long.
Seriously, glad we have somebody representing sanity in California.
RE voting, I’m kinda on the side of more regulation; do you like regulation there or only if it benefits republicans?
RE highway safety, I imagine the majority of improvements have nothing to do with licensing drivers, but seatbelt regs probably contribute a lot.
My wife was in New Delhi this week, the pollution there is obscene. While I know all the pollution is naturally occurring (heaven knows it isn’t man-made), regulations have probably helped that (how bad is LA?).
I also support more regulation of our border. That’s another regulation most republicans favor.
