It will allow users to personally thank those non-gun owners (and businesses) for their thoughtfulness toward others and their pacifist approach toward dealing with an increasingly dangerous and violent world.

I understand your sentiment, but it's really a much less dangerous & violent world than compared to even 10 years ago.

This is worse. At least the latter were proven to be sex offenders in court (flawed as the process may be) according to the summary, no actual proof is needed to end up on the map.

Great point. So how long do you think it will take for the 5 million plus NRA members to make this dataset completely useless once they are aware of it as a group?

I have an OUYA, the "Kickstarter" edition. Got it about 2 & 1/2 weeks ago now I like it. The kids really like it. It does pretty much exactly what I wanted it to do. I have 0 problems with the wifi & the only issue I have with the controllers is that the touchpad needs work. Wired Xbox 360 controllers work well. I haven't tried pairing the Wii controllers yet, but I should be able to. I've bought two games (BombSquad & Ice Rage) cause the kids loved the demos. Stalagflight is simple but fun. Canabalt has laggy input which makes it difficult to time jumps. XBMC works well even in beta, but you may want to hook a keyboard up for the initial setup. Most of the emulators are well done but I wish they had more output filters.

I've tried side loading basically all of the Humble Bundle Android games. If they are made to work with a controller, they work well. The rest of them, not so much. Aquaria is as just as responsive as any PS2 title, so I'm thinking a lot of the current controller issues are with the games themselves & not the hardware. F-Droid has a quite a bit of GPL software & games that will run on the OUYA. Frozen Bubble works great.
