Obesity kills far more humans than "rifles" ever will, and yet you see no artists blocking food emojis, and no companies worrying about what do to when someone posts a cake emoji.

Gotta love the logic surrounding this bullshit argument.

That’s because, quite unlike guns, food is NOT designed to kill people.

Food does not kill people, gluttony does.

I have a great deal of admiration for the US Constitution. It's one of the finest documents ever penned by man.

It’s grossly obsolete. More and more countries who had a constitution inspired by it have updated it since.

France’s constitution is not even 60 years old. I was 20 years old when Canada’s current constitution was adopted. More and more countries update their constitutions to face changing times; it’s time for the US to do the same, and ditch those cumbersome amendments, and instead adopt a more comprehensive, better adapted text. And yes, it should not allow individual firearms, just like any civilized country.

The US Constitution was penned in frontier times. Those times are over, you should not be able to use your freedom to run roughshod over other, less fortunate or wealthy people than you.

I suspect it'll start with one driver leading a train of autonomous trucks, at which point being able to troubleshoot any computery issues on the road would be really handy.


I'll bet your ass against Trump’s that once robot trucks come out, they’re going to be so over-regulated to the hilt that the very act of thinking of having a driver service them on the road will earn you several years in Club Fed

Wow, what makes this apartment building so special that both the landlords AND the tenants are posting on slashdot?

I've always thought slashdotters don't live in apartments but in mom's basement.

Slashdotter here. First, look at my 5 digit ID #, young squirt.

I haven't been living at my parents' for more than 30 years now.
