Still insider trading as he had access to data that the public doesn't.
If you want to lower the coulomb barrier energy to its minimum, it is with muon catalyzed D-T fusion (deuterium + tritium -> He4 + fast neutron).
I was just about to say that.
You are confused as to what a government is. A government has the 'legal authority' to steal from me, to kidnap me and to murder me. No corporation has the legal authority to do that.
1) See, "Academi"
2) See "Prisons, Privatized"
A government uses mob power that it buys with promises to the mob at the expense of the people who are actually paying for all these promises.
3) See, "Koch Brothers".
What do you mean when a white guy does it?
Adam Lanza was white. Most of the mass shooters in my lifetime have been white.
What is unusual is a black man doing it.
Yep, with a fisheye lens you can see the "curvature of the earth" from the ground.
At least the people would have gotten something out of a stadium, for all the colossal waste they are. Instead its just money pissed away on joyrides for the rich. Except I doubt Virgin Galacitc will ever make a commercial launch, at this point.
We're great at having laws that punish criminal gun use. We're somewhat ok at criminal background checks. We suck at mental illness background checks, and we suck at keeping guns we own away from the mentally ill.
He also used "Henceforth", which is a sure sign of admirable lunacy.
The burden is on anyone who proposes adding new laws to the many that already exist to show why they would be any more effective than the laws already in place.
By that logic, we can then say that leaving the laws alone is guaranteed recipe for failure as they are not working. For that matter, by that logic our country - "The Great Experiment" - should have never started as there was no precedent for a democracy of this size and style to have ever worked for long.
Even if we set aside the failures of your "logic", the reality is that the most common reform suggestion is to require meaningful background checks for all gun purchases. No person with the ability to actually bring up a bill in government has suggested anything more intrusive than that in the past decade. And what is the actual cost of this? It slows down purchases by a very small amount. I own firearms myself and I know a lot of people who do as well. I have never been in a situation where I have had an urgent need to purchase one, nor has anyone I know. Even if the purchase took another 24 hours for the background check, what's the big deal? Right now background checks usually take a couple minutes at the most, but what's the hurry?
