Did I say ban?

No.

Your ban list lojik failz on 2 levelz:

1. A gun cant be uzed for any practical and essential purpose besidez killing, like all the other itemz you are comparing it to.

2. If gunz were banned & rounded up, making the bat wielder the alfa male, its still a better situation than having gunz everywhere. Its hard for a guy swinging a bat to kill you from 1000 yardz, no matter how strong he iz. He'd haf to throw it, and anybody who can throw a bat 1000 yardz duznt need a bat.

Seattle just passed a law similar to the GIT. http://www.seattle.gov/council/issues/gunsafety/

The NRA immediately filed a suit.

Started another petition with a different organization. http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/gun-incident-tax

Hopefully, they will put it in their 'promote' catagory, unlike the last organization.

Stephan Paddock haz provided a case to analyze.

I believ it supports the GIT.

Supoz the GIT had been enacted not long after I propozed it 5 yirz ago. Even tho he iz a 'multimillionaire' he woud probably not hav been able to afford the arsenal he uzed in the hotel, let alone all the other gunz he had at hiz homez. The tax iz proportional to the value uv the gunz and related itemz sumwun ownz and, being based on the far greater cost uv gun insidents, woud hav made hiz collection unaffordable.

Uv course, he coud still hav dun it with 3 or 4 gunz or just 1 very well made gun and sum luck, but hiz chansez uv doing az much damaj woud be redused. He didnt lug all that hardware up there for nothing.

New Movie cartoon 2018 ''Aladdin''

Postby vaiybora » Fri Feb 02, 2018 12:26 pm

New Movie cartoon 2018 ''Aladdin''

หนังใหม่ Aladdin is a 1992 American animated comedy musical romantic fantasy adventure film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation for Walt Disney Pictures. The film is the 31st Disney animated feature film, and was the fourth produced during the Disney film era known as the Disney Renaissance. It was directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, and is based on the Arab-style folktale of the same name from One Thousand and One Nights and the French interpretation by Antoine Galland. The voice cast features Scott Weinger, Robin Williams, Linda Larkin, Jonathan Freeman, Frank Welker, Gilbert Gottfried and Douglas Seale.

The film follows Aladdin, a street urchin, who finds a magic lamp containing a genie. In order to hide the lamp from the Grand vizier, he disguises himself as a wealthy prince, and tries to impress the Sultan and his daughter.
Lyricist Howard Ashman first pitched the idea, and the screenplay went through three drafts before then-Disney Studios president Jeffrey Katzenberg agreed to its production. The animators based their designs on the work of caricaturist Al Hirschfeld, and computers were used for both finishing the artwork and creating some animated elements. The musical score was written by Alan Menken and features six songs with lyrics written by both Ashman and Tim +Rice, who took over after Ashman's death.

Its a shame, but good ideaz don't automaticly float to the top in our sosiety. I came up with the Gun Incident Tax going on 6 yirz ago, yet its virtually unknown. Politicianz are still bleating "thoughts and prayers" wenever skool children get massacred, hiding behind the suppozedly indestructable 2nd amendment.

Wut makes it unlikely to ever be repealed iz the NRA spending 100 million per yir promoting 'gun rites', including 50,000,000$ in campane contributionz.

The hi skool kidz involved with this latest insident hav had enuf. Therez a facebook wave growing calling for the 2nd amendment to be repealed. I dont think it will last long.

The GIT iz an alternativ stratejy - counterbalans the 2nd amendment. Money iz at the hart uv the NRA'z existens, so going after the money will work. All it needz iz publisity.

So, if you are starting to feel a little gilty for not doing anything, post a link to http://www.7532020.com/GUNZ.htm in all your usual hangouts. Tell your frendz about it. mention it in comments for related newz storyz. Kuz if its only me promoting it, we will still be reading about mass shootingz at skoolz in 2030 and beyond.

The above translated into English:
JO 753 wrote:It's a shame, but good ideas don't automatically float to the top in our society. I came up with the Gun Incident Tax going on six years ago, yet it's virtually unknown.

Looks like there is still hope if really bad ideas sink to the bottom.
Politicians are still bleating "thoughts and prayers" whenever school children get massacred,

Could they have been "massacred" because they were put in a zone of over 1000 feet radius where guns are prohibited to those who obey the law (Gun-Free School Zone law)?
hiding behind the supposedly indestructible 2nd amendment.

The Bill of Rights is a cornerstone of the Constitution. The draft Constitution enumerated what the government could do. That was not acceptable to members of the Convention. They wanted an enumeration of what the government could NOT do. The Constitution was only accepted under the proviso that it would contain a Bill of Rights.
What makes it unlikely to ever be repealed is the NRA spending 100 million per year promoting 'gun rights', including $50,000,000 in campaign contributions.

Actually, in 2016, NRA total expenditures approached $half-a-billion.
The high school kids involved with this latest incident have had enough. There's a facebook wave growing calling for the 2nd amendment to be repealed. I don't think it will last long.

What percentage of these children didn't learn any important history lessons in their sanitized courses? "Those who cannot remember the mistakes of history are doomed to repeat them."
The GIT is an alternative strategy - counterbalance the 2nd amendment.

Your proposal is subversive against the principles of U.S. government.
Money is at the heart of the NRA's existence, so going after the money will work. All it needs is publicity.

No. Concerned citizens are at the heart of the NRA: people who understand the danger of those who try to chip away at individual rights.
So, if you are starting to feel a little guilty for not doing anything, post a link to ***** in all your usual hangouts.

Do not click on malicious advertising links at this website.
Tell your friends about it. [M]ention it in comments for related news stories. Because if it's only me promoting it, we will still be reading about mass shootings at schools in 2030 and beyond.

Here is a person who wants to impose his own personal spelling rules on the English-speaking world; may, or may not, by now own an AK-47 rifle (which hypocritically he stated some years ago that he intended to buy); and expects you to become his loyal minion to make himself President of the United States.
