Now we're just talking about faulty logic in general, rather than attributing said logic to me? Well I suppose that's a plus.

Chicago has gun control laws among the strictest in the nation, and one of the highest gun violence/murder rates. But that's mostly South side black on black crime, which I can understand if people haven't heard much about it, because it's very under-reported.



Yeah but you're talking about the strictest in a nation that doesn't have strict laws at all. That's like talking about the "thinest" sumo wrestler in the stable.

That's a conclusion not present or inferred in my post. That's scrounging for inductive logic from the thinnest of premises.

We have freedoms that many countries don't have. Do you want an authoritarian state? Safe and sound for everyone, like Mao's China, Stalin's Russia, Hitler's Germany, Mussolini's Italy or Pol Pot's Cambodia? As I recall, the citizens of those countries did not fare that well.



Just saying, the logic that arming everyone makes everyone safer isn't really supported by reality. There are more guns than people in America which results in more shootings and murder.

I don't want an authoritarian state but I do like rules and laws. The most lawless countries are the most dangerous and the countries with a lot of rules and laws are the safest.

So? If you're expecting a perfect society you're not going to get it. If you take away my gun, I'm the one who's unarmed, not the criminal.

By your logic America should be the safest county in the world and a country like Japan the most dangerous.

I used to be a big pot head but don't touch it anymore. Makes me want to eat cat food. Tried acid once, someone gave me too much and I freaked out for a week and never touched it again. I liked speed far too much so made a decision to stay away from it.

This really does explain a lot.

Several years ago in Seattle, they imposed an additional 'tax' of $25 on any firearm sold, and a nickel tax on each bullet sold. At the time, they said it would 'make Seattle safer'.


The gun-related death rate has doubled since then.

http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/06/seattle_gun_tax_another_gun_control_failure.html

Take away law abiding citizens' firearms is a recipe for chaos. Career criminals buy their gun's from the trunks of other criminal's cars, not from gun stores.

Even a madman would be less likely to shoot into a crowd if he has no idea how many people might shoot back. If you're unhinged, and want to shoot people, you go to a 'gun free' zone.

Gun legislation is necessary in many instances, no argument, but we need to afford normal, sane people the ability to retain their right to protect themselves, because the police cannot.


The fact that they are so readily available is what makes them end up in criminals hands though.

Or are you saying that rate of hand gun ownership decreases crime rate?


Yes, that's exactly what they are saying. That in order to protect yourself from people with guns you need a gun yourself. They don't mention that a gun needs skill to use effectively much like any other tool or instrument. Lots of movies are watched here. It's our real national pass time. Anyway, in America no training, clean sheet or anything is needed before you can feel "safe" because you have a gun. Give a person a pogo stick with no training and it will still be less deadly than giving them some cheap ass gun. But we do it every day by the thousands.

capitalism motherfucker.

Gun stats various cited sources

One might also argue that the buying of a gun IS choosing to be a victim. Given the number of unintentional shootings and suicides associated with guns acquiring one certainly increases the possibility. Admittedly there s no stat on how many times waving a gun around prevented a crime with no injuries or violence. Personally I just use my hockey stick.

The quoted source is not exactly my cup of tea but the cited references look pretty solid.

Injuries and Deaths from Guns
Every time a gun injures or kills in self-defense, one is used:
11 times for a completed or attempted suicide
7 times in a criminal assault or homicide
4 times in an unintentional shooting death or injury
Source: Journal of Trauma, injury, Infection and Critical Care (1998)

Yeah I know, we can all find stats to support our own arguments but I found this rather eye-opening. Simply put the US has a gun problem. Maybe its more accurately a criminals with guns problem and an untrained, unsafe, unregulated doofus with a gun problem; but sorry, you do have a problem.

Canada has a fairly high incidence of gun ownership but our per capita gun homicide rate is one-fifth that of the US. The key difference is legislation: e.g. handguns are highly regulated and a completed safety course is a requirement of purchase although I believe some US states have very similar laws in place.





Exactly. Owning a gun or having a gun in the household greatly increases your chances of being a victim of one. Like if my girlfriend owned a gun I would have been Swiss cotija by now.

I also had an ex who had a redneck as fuck family who thought it was fun to ride on the hood of a jeep while shooting a slug at a 2 liter. We'd take bets on it. The amount of things that could go wrong with this activity is in the hundreds, maybe thousands. It's shear stupidity. Believe me, these are the people who fight for gun laws to not be changed the most. Highly irresponsible, easily stolen guns abound, lowered mental awareness in every situation. It's crazy. It's red blooded 'murca.

Actually... carrying a gun increases your chances of being shot, by a lot. Be it accidental, suicide or by another gun carrier you would not have normally confronted if you didn't feel emboldened by your own firearm.

Here is a short article about a study they did on it.

Well, it seems that not only is this an issue for Jack, but a few others as well. And there is appears to be a serial commenter who comments and deletes their comments. Except for the two sentences in his post, I do agree with Jack, there is no need to know if a comment is deleted.

As to his last two sentences... if Jack hates RRs and "perfect scores" so much... maybe he should request his RRs be removed and make all his stories unscorable. I'm sure Nicola or another Senior Mod can do this for him.

You forgot to preface this with "I have jack blocked, I care not what he says... BUT to no fault of my own I ACCIDENTALLY read jacks comments and am compelled to reply even though do not want to. I am replying against my will."

Lol... you bray like an ass!

Why is there a feature that sends you alerts to your personal email that a certain member has deleted all their comments off your oeuvre? Seems like a feature designed to create beef.

It actually says which member did it. Kinda puts them on blast... also kinda spotlights the pettiness of the scoring and commenting on lush. That's why unimaginative, talentless authors have perfect scores and RRs and all that bullshit. It's a circle jerk.

Okay.

"Disgusting subject" seems a little strong, it is a PG-13 situation at best, a boy wanting to look at a Playboy (and not even getting to, beyond a turned down page flap), but I understand the reasoning. No need to bash, however. It's not disgusting. It's probably a nearly universal experience.

I'll still write it. I just won't submit it here (or the blue site).

Why would you want to write about a 12 year old getting a boner from a dirty mag... the subject itself is fairly standard but you wanting to write a whole story about it is super weird.

Can you imagine? Verbal sitting there pecking away at his keyboard, he gets up to make himself a sandwich and while he's away you take a look at what he writing about... lol

So...

A little back ground, first.

As you know, Gav has been not only our main tech monkey, but our only tech monkey since the sites inception. It's been suggested, on occasion, that it would be nice to get him help - perhaps a sexy assistant, or savvy tech monkey Junior or even a wee magical fairy girl with a bit of knowledge around techy stuff. Every time, he's replied with "Any one touches anything, I'll feed 'em to the Kangas. Now, plunk that Sprite girl into my monkey cave so I can have a go at her bottom with my digeridoo." (some things are best left unspoken of).

Recently, however, Gav's load has gotten pretty crazy, so, in order to preserve the pristine code that he's implemented while still keeping the improvements coming, he came up with a solution: an upgrade. We're calling him Gav 2.0 although, he insists that we call him Emperor Gav to his face (except for me - he makes me call him "Master Gav" while prostrating myself naked at his feet and cleaning his armor with my tongue until it shines. Really not sure what that's all about, but apparently, it's in his contract - gonna have to have a work with Nicola one of these days...

Couple this with the fact that our facility in Scotsdale, AZ, has become cramped. There's just too many mods these days and they're all tripping over each other to the point of not being able to get much down. It didn't help that Ruthie burned down the east wing where my office resides, either. She claims it was an accident, but there is actual video footage of her lobbing a molotov cocktail through my picture window while extending her middle finger and crying out "Take that, you nazi bitch!" Remind me to revoke her drinking privledges...

So, long story short, we needed a new locale. Gav 2.0... Sorry. Master Gav... *lick lick lick* come up with a solution that none of us had even considered, sparking off a new, and incredibly expensive new project (hint hint) that sort of took a few strange turns and resulted in...

LushStories 4D! we bypassed 3D and virtual reality and conquered time and space, building several new offices (i'll post photos soon, for those interested) in varied locations throughout the space-time continuum.

What does that mean for me, the lush user, you may ask. Several things. With time travel, your stories should be modded faster. In fact, it will be possible to publish stories before they are even written. Also, we will be opening membership for anyone past, present, and future, as well as those from distant planets (the main lush office is currently orbiting Alpha Centari in the year 2392.

A few other things. As soon as the dust settles a little, we will be creating a new section that deals with the 4D aspect of lush that will keep you updated on changes, new staffing, and new features. Hopefully the launch will be relatively smooth, in the mean time, thanks for your patience (except for Hannah, who's patience was close to non-existance!) and I hope you enjoy the new site!

I'm not sure this is a "fixable" thing, but I have spent substantial time and energy on a collaboration, partly to knock out a collab but mostly to help the person with whom I was collaborating submit his first story.

Unfortunately, this person ...long story short, he sent a rather cryptic message about our relationship (what relationship, now?) and how he couldn't handle it (what, again, now?) so now I'm stuck with a story that I spent hours weedwhacking and messing with and otherwise devoting energy to, energy that could have been directed elsewhere, and fuck if I know what to do with it. I don't believe that it would be ethical to submit it solely under my own name, but I'm pretty sure that if I submit it as a collab, he'll not agree to be named as a co-author.

Options? Right now it looks like "forget it exists" and "submit as collab knowing co-author will refuse" are my only options. Just want some kind of reassurance that these are, in fact, my only options.

That's hilarious really.

Case in point.

Really though, think about it, seriously. If someone is about to post and they agree that they are not a lil bitch then you wouldn't have all this whining and crying by lil bitches whose opinions get disagreed with or called out for the silly ass things they say. That's not how real conversation/debate/interactions happen. If you say something smart people should be allowed to agree. If you say something dumb people should be allowed to disagree. Idealistically of course. Gotta see what the dumb to smart ratio is, bottom line... But ultimately the most interesting reading is a place where all voices are heard, not just the lil bitches.
