How about unarmed people being shot by the police. Is that 3rd world enough for you? [rolls eyes]
Yeah, government oppression NEVER happens [rolls eyes].
Tell you what. Go to ANY local store and buy a Blu-Ray player. Pop in a BBC disc (say, a recent Doctor Who), and try to skip the previews. Just try it. Guess what? The government FORCES companies to make DVD players to not allow certain bits to be skipped. Yeah, that is for the good of you and I, sure. [rolls eyes].
Now, have you EVER heard of this group called the "NSA?" They actually got the metadata from most (if not all) cell phone calls for a while (and maybe they still are). Yup, no warrant, like the 4th Amendment says they have to get. Get this... the government went after an honest person who told the American citizens how their own government was breaking the law. They are trying to accuse Snowden of treason. Treason is helping the enemy. I guess the government considers the common people to be the enemy. [rolls eyes]
Oh, our government has actually targeted journalists with surveillance, and even sent the IRS after people and groups based on their political stance. Yeah, that is OK, right? [rolls eyes]
If you trust the government, then you have not been paying attention. Stop being ignorant -- you have only yourself to blame.
I have heard two better hypothesis. Maybe one or the other, or both, are true.
1) Lead in the environment. No more lead in gas and paint. Lead, if I recall correctly, has been shown to increase violent behavior.
2) Abortion becoming legal. With more abortion, you have less criminals.
Note that NEITHER of these are my theories, and I don't have any personal opinions on either one. I am just parroting what I have heard elsewhere.
Is that the the same "traumatized victim" who threw a party the very same day to present her cool new boyfriend to all her friends?
a) Now he had an STD....? That's news.
b) Nobody except the Swedish prosecutor is sure what exactly he's accused of. The Swedish police didn't think he'd done anything, they let him go. The prosecutor only became interested int he case when she was on a fishing trip through the police computers using the search term "Julian Assange". After she found his name on a police statement she called the two girls in and persuaded them to upgrade their query to "complaint" so she could call Assange in. Both the girls later regretted doing this after they figured out what was really going on and how they'd been manipulated by the prosecutor.
c) He has hasn't been _charged_ with anything, he's wanted for an *interview*. He's offered to do the interview on numerous occasions, just not in Sweden; Because Sweden has a weird law that allows them to "lend" him to the USA.
"Ok let's try this out, M, swipe I, swipe C"
[clippy appeaers] "Say, it seems like you're trying to type Microsoft, should I just add it to the text box for you?"
"Go away you little..."
"Say, are you trying to type Fuschia? Let me add that for you..."
... assuming people always drive on the same side of the road)
Well, yes... only if we assume that.
The British Government officially adopted the "short" billion in 1976 for all government statistical reporting. So that battle is long over.
So the two countries that clung to feet/pints/bushels/furlongs the longest have decided to agree.
And have both agreed to something the rest of the world doesn't recognize.

Iron sights can be hard to see in low-light conditions. Simply stated, iron sights are fine when you have a little extra time and conditions are good.
Having a decent red dot just makes thing quicker under more conditions than iron sights.
You can certainly get an AR for well under $1,000. However, decent optics can cost about as much as the rifle. Rifles are only useful if you can actually hit the target. So, that is at least $1,500. You can also customize the AR platform with all sorts of "tacticool" goodies (lights, lasers, handles, etc.). Such upgrades also cost a premium. Still, $3,000 seems like too much for most people, but I am sure that you could spend $3,000 if you really wanted to.
Money cannot buy love, nor even friendship.
