Gun Control

Friday, February 1st, 2013

By Pete Lucas, a contributing author:

I support peoples’ constitutional right to have guns. And I’m not just talking about my biceps.

I also recently wrote that some real reform was needed if we’re going to slow down the tide of school shootings. And of course, the government has decided that instead, they’d like to make some stupid, totally ineffective restrictions instead.

As Clinton did, the focus is on “assault rifles” and “high-capacity magazines.” The only difference between an “assault rifle” and a “hunting rifle” is the decorations. Literally, there’s no other difference. The high capacity magazine argument is pointless, because you can still have as many standard magazines as you want, which hold 9-10 rounds each. I have a Beretta .40 that has 8 magazines with it. That’s 80 rounds I can fire without reloading a magazine one single time. Over 70% of gun murders are done using handguns. We aren’t talking about restricting them AT ALL.

CNN – Second worst ratings in 15 years

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

TV by the Numbers:

On a percentage basis, year/year might look better for CNN than its rivals MSNBC (which was up 2% with total viewers year/year and down 3% with adults 25-54 in primetime) and Fox News (down 8% in total viewers and down 14% with adults 25-54 in primetime) but CNN still was in third place behind MSNBC.  Fox  News was better than the combined CNN & MSNBC in primetime with total viewers and only ~37,000 viewers short of a combined CNN/MSNBC with adults 25-54.

Managing the Bottom 5%

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

By Pete Lucas, a contributing author:

I really hate rules. I hate rules because I’m a rule-follower. I’m a peacemaker. If someone is rude to me, I am not rude back. If the sign says “no trespassing”, I stay out. I don’t know if it was my religious upbringing, apathy, or just brainwashing, but I have never even wanted to break the rules.

BUT. I hate unnecessary rules, of which there are eleventy-jillion. Ninety five percent of people don’t need the rules because they aren’t the problem in the first place. Rules are made to try and control the five percent of people who have total disregard for the rules. Ironically, these are the same 5% that will ignore the rules designed to manage them.

Just 21% Say 9/11-Driven Mission in Afghanistan Has Been Accomplished – Rasmussen

Monday, September 12th, 2011

While radical Muslims were the perpetrators of the 9/11 sneak attacks and had tried eight years earlier to topple the World Trade Center, a plurality (44%) of Americans think America’s relationship with the Muslim world is even worse today. Only 11% believe the U.S.-Muslim relationship is better than it was before the 9/11 attacks. Thirty-four percent (34%) view it as about the same.
