Junkie logic.

That's all this is. "Look, normal weight people can be unhealthy too!" (So it's okay that I'm obese...) "Personal responsibility never works!" (So I shouldn't even try...)

If we really want to solve the societal pandemic of obesity we need to completely discard the idea that it's caused by some personal moral failing

(It's not my fault that I can't control my diet or be bothered to exercise regularly. It's society!)

I've little doubt that this post will justify that package of Oreos you'll shovel down later. Damn society, keeping you fat.

I posted you a link which clearly shows:
Many states forbid either assault rifles or both kinds of weapons, e.g. New York AFAIK

Ah, I see. You just don't understand what you posted.

Give it another go. You'll figure it out. (Hint: It does support your claim. Quite the opposite, in fact.)

Let's review:

Private citizens can own handguns and assault rifles

This is true.

Many states forbid either assault rifles or both kinds of weapons, e.g. New York AFAIK

This is false.

Your earlier post supports my assertion, as it makes it very clear that the State of New York does not "forbid" "both kinds of weapons".

Well, it works acceptably on my BlackBerry Z10. Way better than jQuery Mobile at least, but that's not exactly a high-bar.

It works wonderfully on my bargain-basement Windows 7 netbook in Chrome 31, but doesn't work at all in FireFox 25 or IE 11.

I figure by that time it works acceptably in enough places, it'll be useless -- solving a problem no one has any more.
