I am going to share some clips from a scene study class I do.

Dude! I have to admit, I'm kind of impressed. Not just at your scene (which captured the moment when I personally fire employees) but that you would share it.

You know that you run the risk of some animal here taking a screencap from that video and using your face on some kind of meme or deepfake porn or something.

I'm thinking about doxxing myself a little and opening up more to this community. After all, you've shown your face and Thork showed his abs and his junk, the secret Santa thing is rolling. A number of members speak openly about the specific cities they live in. Maybe we could be more that a bunch of arguing people being shitty to each other.

It feels weird.

Unfortunately,  the 17 year old punk wandering the streets with a rifle in my neighborhood was gunned down by the cops before he could kill any child molesters.

Well sometimes the child molesters win.
Yeah
The child molesters just got lucky this time because the kid was black.

The fact of the matter is that anyone upset about the Rittenhouse trial sees a pedo getting shot in the pelvis and thinks "that could have been me!" It's certainly scary for the grab-the-minors demographic.

Yes, I'm sure all the child molesters in America are terrified that some rich spoiled Punk is going to randomly shoot them.

A determined population is more than capable of resisting an occupying army, even one with far superior technology. America's recent military failures in the Middle East are strong evidence of this. By the same token, though, it's not the possession of the weapons guaranteed by the Second Amendment that allows them to fight back. It's more a question of their resourcefulness and determination.

Yep....  every extremist group on the planet watched January 6th. They understand all they have to do is strap bombs on themselves and push their way into the White House. It's only a matter of time before the dumbass Hillbillies figure out the same.

However, these patriotic right wing Freedom Fighters are idiots. They think Donald Trump actually cares about them. They think he's going to get them out of jail. They think the Dead Kennedys are going to reinstate Trump in office. They believe stupid shit they read on the internet.

On the other hand, Vladimir Putin's resourcefulness, determination and technology has led him to discover how to weaponize stupid people. The Chinese are also starting to deploy similar troll farms.

Everyone knows that nuclear war unwinnable and obsolete. The new warfare is about mobilizing hordes of dumbass zombies with propaganda and disinformation.

The super weapon of the future is the American idiot.

How many people at the US Capitol were armed?

Answer -0

You're just weak liar.

Fuck that. That piece of human shit, Trump, was going to send federal troops to my town to protect a Target store from protesters marching against a corrupt police force that has brutalized the people of this city for over a half century. They weren't armed either.

Every rioter in that photo is a traitor to this nation. The Republicans supporting Putin's agenda who opened the doors for these traitors are traitors. Fuck each and every one of those 'short bus retards' (their lawyer's words, not mine.)

  Seems like sour grapes.

It's pissed off grapes. I owned guns when I was 17. The idea that my mom and dad would let me take one of my rifles and go into the streets at night is incomprehensible. This little fuck head's parents are the real problem. So fuck them too.
Sour grapes from an ineffectual troll who has no point.

Rittenhouse killed two known shitbags and his trial ended in a just verdict.

His parents are a far sight better than most.

He randomly killed two people not knowing who they were.

What if someone had snatched that rifle away from that stupid Punk and shot him in the face with it. That's my idea of self-defense. That's my idea of someone protecting the community from an armed extremist freak.

Again, his weeping parents would blame someone else for things they could have prevented.

I've always believed that idea of an armed citizenry defending liberty from our federal government was an absolutely delusional redneck fantasy. I need the federal government to have resources and weaponry to defend us from powerful nation states all over the world. I want a government that can defend us from extremist terror groups with technology and intelligence.
You mean the extremist terror groups it created?

Yeah... I guess it all changes when the government is an extremist terror group with technology and intelligence.

I'm sorry, but I can't see this underage delinquent wandering around with a gun being part of the founding father's vision.
Considering the Founding Father's (just one?) times, he would not be an "underage delinquent". He'd be a "man" by quite some margin. I'm not sure adding a lack of awareness of history to a terrible legal argument really helps your case.

I didn't say the whole legal system is wrong,  you're saying it's completely right.
Don't try to strawman me. It will not work, and you'll just make yourself look sillier in the process. You said the following, word for word:

The 2nd Amendment says nothing about individual gun rights.

This is directly at odds both with the current interpretation of the 2nd Amendment (you know, the thing that's legally binding) and with its literal text ("the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed"). Regardless of how much it affects your "snowflake" feelings, and regardless of how much you retcon what you mean by "the 2nd Amendment", you were incorrect.

The other kid with a gun didn't get a chance to discuss the constitution.
This is an interesting, if extremely amateurish, rhetorical device you're using there. "Someone else was subject to a grave injustice, therefore Rittenhouse should also be subjected to it." I'm sure you can see just how unhelpful that sounds. Speak truth to power and demand justice for the guy that got gunned down. Don't try to bring everyone else down to the level you consider unjust.

I applaud your parsing of my arguments (I don't care about looking silly and don't care about who's at my level.) I also don't care about people's judgements about my opinions, we're on a forum where people argue that the earth is flat.

The laws can be changed, the current interpretation of the 2nd Amendment is bullshit. Gun violence is surging and I don't accept that we have to just live with it. I don't accept that more guns on the streets are going to make it better. I don't accept that when that punk took his gun and started walking the streets that there was anything righteous or patriotic about it. If it was legal that means the laws are fucked and need to be changed. I own guns and I can say whatever the legal system says about it, the current state  of it is fucked.

In my town, we had a dozen people shot this weekend and it was a slow weekend. Perhaps, we need to advocate for broadening gun rights in your town.

Again, I'm sure your legal arguments will come back to my silliness or my reading comprehension but this situation is fucked up and needs action.

Did you know Russia was donating money to the NRA under the Trump administration? The NRA took the money because it's money. The Russian's gave the money for two reasons. So their spies Boris and Natasha could rub shoulders with high profile Republicans at the events. Also, it is in Russia's best interest to flood the streets of America with cheap accessible guns and the conservative movement is helping them do it.
I supported Republicans for decades but this idea that every freak in the street gets a gun is bullshit. I have to have a license for my dog, I have to have liability insurance for my car. Carrying a weapon may be a right but it should carry responsibility, just like owning a dog or driving a car. Fuck the Republicans, they are dead to me and it is my right to do everything I can to get them out of office.

BTW, this isn't about 'truth to power'. When a freak is wandering the streets with a gun, I want him taken out.  I pay taxes so I don't have to be the one to do it.

The Supreme Court has fucked up time and time again over the years.
Ah, yes, the entire legal system is wrong, and only you (with your extensive qualifications in law) are correct. Truly a hallmark of good debate.

Read the actual text of the 2nd Amendment.
What does that have to do with anything in a case law/common law system?

Nonetheless:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Which part of "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed" confuses you? Is it "people"? Or are you just hyperfocusing on the prefatory clause of that sentence?

I'm sorry, but I can't see this underage delinquent wandering around with a gun being part of the founding father's vision.

The other kid with a gun didn't get a chance to discuss the constitution. It was within our rights to have law enforcement gun him down.

You have no  evidence he was polishing the rifle in his mom's house.
Just another lie.

So this punk, a product of the mainstream media, sat in his bedroom of his mom's house, studying algebra, doing his chores, watching action movies, dreaming of being a cop, getting hopped up on Fox News.

Right.

I'm entitled to my opinion and if it offends the right wing snowflakes that made this entitled, spoiled piece of shit their hero, I'm glad.

This affluenza ridden brat is the reason liberals don't want us to have guns.

12
And before the conservatard snowflakes start whining about the 2nd Amendment, The 2nd Amendment says nothing about individual gun rights. The citizens have a right to bear arms in the form of a well regulated militia as a balance of power against the Feds. It doesn't mean some punk gets to wander the streets at night with a rifle.
I'm not sure that quite aligns with the actual state of the law. Perhaps you could point towards some precedent of the 2nd Amendment being interpreted this way by US courts?

The Supreme Court has fucked up time and time again over the years. They fucked up when they expanded the 2nd Amendment to individuals just like when they gave corporations the same rights as voters and supported racial segregation.

Read the actual text of the 2nd Amendment.

This punk is a product of the mainstream media. He sat in his bedroom of his mom's house polishing that rifle, watching action movies, dreaming of being a cop, getting hopped up on Fox News. Despite the law, despite self defense, the only reason those people are dead is because he took his weapon and hit the streets. I don't believe he saved any lives or did any good by leaving his house that night. The pictures of him dressed as an action hero that night says it all.

I own guns, I have a conceal carry permit. Everyone in my extended family for three generations owns guns. I am here to tell you that this is a sickness and I've seen it before over and over. These militant freaks, open carry assholes are an embarrassment to what it is to posses a weapon. People who openly carry sidearms while not being an on duty cop or active duty military are offensive.

And speaking of which, we had a 17 year old kid wandering the streets at night with a rifle in a neighboring municipality. The cops surrounded him, ordered him to drop the weapon and he said, "huh?" He died in a hail of gunfire. Yep, he was black.

It's a good thing we don't have any of those militant freaks around here.

Yep, I'm doing the Security + exam, probably late December, Early January. Not for anything specific now, just for down the road.

The newest version is a real pain in the ass. The two study guides I used were 150 pages long each, and they were supposed to be the condensed versions of the information.

Right!   I should have done the 501 version of the test last year. It was way easier.

I want to get it done as soon as possible before it gets any worse. In the next two years, it could double in size again.

I think I just like stacking certs and working at my comfy Socialist government job. But for real, I had a 2nd interview today with a managed security service provider and I think I'll take it.

 I want to do Pentest + because it looks like fun. The performance based questions are like little CTF challenges.

A lot of these idiots don't understand that part of this Qanon garbage is being generated from Russia's IRC. Putin and his buddies are laughing at this and placing bets on what they can make Americans believe.

Tentacle creatures? Seriously?

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/top-doctors-and-scientists-sue-the-fda-to-obtain-the-data-used-to-approve-pfizer-jab/

The data used to approve the vaccine was not publicly released and the FDA is actively fighting to keep it secret. Despicable.
You pick and destroy details of peer reviewed studies but you believe this stuff?

an anonymous fake website with links to fake data... published by...  some dude...

I am just a concerned citizen reporting on often overlooked public data regarding adverse events related to the new Covid-19 vaccines. I work with data for a living and have been in the technology field for over two decades.

Ironic fact about me: I spent the better part of a decade building websites for big Pharma. There is likely not a single big Pharma company I have not built a website for.


with data taken from...

Key considerations and limitations of VAERS data:

    Vaccine providers are encouraged to report any clinically significant health problem following vaccination to VAERS, whether or not they believe the vaccine was the cause.
    Reports may include incomplete, inaccurate, coincidental and unverified information.
    The number of reports alone cannot be interpreted or used to reach conclusions about the existence, severity, frequency, or rates of problems associated with vaccines.
    VAERS data is limited to vaccine adverse event reports received between 1990 and the most recent date for which data are available.
    VAERS data do not represent all known safety information for a vaccine and should be interpreted in the context of other scientific information.


... like someone who built websites for big pharma would be using this punk-ass wordpress theme.

Sad

The interview is not very convincing to be honest. He doesn't seem much to me like a man who brushed the face of God. More like an old hack, hamming it up in a badly cast cameo.

Yeah, but if that rocket exploded 65 miles above the Atlantic Ocean and Shatner was gone, that would be actual proof.
