actually DOES result in significantly less gun violence.

That is true.

But it doens't result in less violent crime. So you're just as likely to be murdered.

Also didn't impact suicide rates at all.

So they changed the tools and circumstances around crimes, not the actual crimes. So they lost freedom and gained no security.

- In most all states, you can carry a 'deadly weapon', sometimes openly, sometimes concealed. Get over it. The crime rate of CCW holders is the same as the police.
- No matter what school you send your kids too, there will be some dumbshit taught to them. learn to be a decent parent.
- they are anti abortion, not family planning. get over yourself.

I interviewed there, and there and had a dude with under a year of experience out of college interview me. and of course, give a horrible interview. I'm pretty sure that's the reason I didn't get the offer (of course who knows, maybe other reasons). they have this idea that an engineer is an engineer, which I think is good. to an extent, but in the end it's a bullshit philosophy.

There's no future in time travel.
