gun control

davidcwilliams4

Making gun control more restrictive is not the answer to a safer way of life. The second amendment was put in place to allow citizens the ability to protect themselves and their assets. Outlawing guns will only prevent the law abiding citizens from having access to firearms. Criminals will always find a way to get their hands on what they want. Most drugs are illegal but there are still drug addicts. By taking away the ability for good people to own guns you also take away any deterrent that cri...

The ellipsis should have 2 dots/periods/full-stops instead of 3.

BlindBeliever
Mysery

The ellipsis "..." is wasting a character and precious paper space as well as ink for no reason at all. Two dots/periods/full-stops mean nothing in particular so why are we wasting a symbol?It is okay, I understand, it will waste many resources to replace all the past instances of ellipses with two. So how about just from today onwards it is enforced?It literally wastes an extra bit of memory in a server every time it's typed. This is not actually a joke, imagine all...

Subutai

I will argue that it was not the soundest move and that Germany should held it's border and committed most of it's forces against Russia in the east. When analyzing the plan and it's merits both neither side may use historical events that were not direct outcomes of the plan....
