Here’s today’s Comment of the Day, in response to my post about how concealed weapons actually make us less safe.

It’s an actual, no-foolin’ gun owner who recognizes that a gun isn’t a magic defensive amulet that wards off crime just by being hidden in the pocket of someone’s shorts.

Thank goodness for this person. He balances out this person, whose comment is amazing:

Actually if everyone in America had a gun then crime across the board would DECREASE, it’s only when just a handful have them that it does nothing for crime.

I like this comment so much because it’s just a completely random statement. You could replace “gun” with anything and have just as much success in making your argument. Like, “Actually if everyone in America had a unicorn then crime across the board would DECREASE, it’s only when so few people have unicorns that unicorns do nothing for crime.”

If you look at county’s with higher gun ownership they tend to have less crime. Why? Because no one wants to get shot for stealing. Just look at Detroit recently gun ownership has gone up and crime has gone down. Not just a theory when there is evidence people

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

So metal
