I never supported this because I remember how cruel they were. They weren't treating the mentally ill, they were warehousing them so society could create an illusion of security. This is merely another red flag law and if enacted it will be abused, just as it was in the past. We still have institutions for the criminally insane, but I don't believe that fear is a legal or moral justification for abrogating the rights of people who haven't done anything wrong. He hasn't changed his imperious tune at all, he just changed the penalty for singing off-key.
However, I agree that there are too many damn knee-jerk purity tests around here. ACB is a good example - everybody loved her until she made one ruling they didn't like (ironically, they're mad because she isn't being an activist) then suddenly she was evil personified. Likewise, Bill condemned this entire site simply because we didn't all kneel and kiss his mainstream moonbat arse. It's not the objections to certain points of view that are the problem, it's the impulse to throw the baby out with the bathwater. It's the old "no true Scotsman" fallacy. We're not a hive mind and we can have differences of opinion without needing to "purge the ranks of wrongthink".
To be fair, Bill wasn't cancelled from our forum for going against the grain, he ran away because he's a faggot who couldn't take the heat of a spirited debate. If you want to have any peace in this world you have to learn to cope with the fact that no matter what you stand for, some people are going to hate you and treat you like shit (believe me, it's not always fun being a Rand Paul supporter around here). The proper response isn't conformity, or eradicating dissent, it's having the courage to speak your mind and defend your principles. Especially when it makes you unpopular. It's like the man said - if everyone agrees with you then you're not really influencing anything. Or learning anything. You're also not going to make a difference in this world if you get your panties in a twist and scamper off like a weasel when you encounter opposition.

It's dying because entitled whippersnappers think the world owes them something just for being born. If you want to win then get off your pity pot and make your own dreams come true.
He wants to make psikhushkas great again.
What is it with this faggot and punishing pre-crime?
The kid has cystic fibrosis, which is NOT an elevated risk of COVID infection. People with CF are not more likely to catch it and they're not more likely to have a severe response than anyone else. At that age the risk is almost zero, and it certainly won't be mitigated by the parents wearing masks because they think it prevents them from catching it. CNN is just using this story as another excuse to demonize everyone who refuses to obey their retarded mandates.
Our rights aren't dependent upon how many people agree with them.
Fact Check: True!
We sure are lucky the government burdened us with tedious regulations and wasted vast sums of money on "recycling" to make libtards feel morally superior.
They're fucking mental. This is why they were put in the closet. It sure didn't take long for "we just want to love who we want" to mutate into "we just want to kill who we want".
Deport all commies to the red planet and let's see what happens when they can't mooch off of the rest of civilization. You know, for science.
The whole premise of red flag laws is to punish people before they commit a crime just because you're afraid of what they might do. The abuse is inherent in the policy.
I thought it was pretty decent, but then I liked Bridges of Madison County too. Not every film needs to be a legendary saga drowned in ludicrous battle scenes and hyperactive CGI. I can still appreciate a simple, slow-paced human-interest drama that doesn't beat you over the head with a political agenda. It wasn't a grand feast, it was just a plate of beans and a cup of chicory, but that's good enough for an old wrangler like me. Your mileage may vary.

I don't follow his politics, I just like his movies.
It's fake. Clint Eastwood doesn't do social media.

It's not just guns. Switchblades, daggers, nunchuks, throwing stars, Bowie knives, blackjacks, buckle knives, brass knuckles, cane swords... y'all have no authority to run around banning everything that scares you.
How do you do, fellow K-pop stans.
The science is settled.
I don't give a single fuck if I'm outnumbered 330,000,000 to one. My right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Full stop. The "mainstream" does not supercede the Constitution.
Let's get this straight, nobody "allows" me to speak my mind.
I don't recall any part of the Constitution granting unelected "regulators" any authority whatsoever.
Calling two victims a "mass casualty" in order to restrict the rights of everyone who didn't do it is textbook hoplophobic faggotry. It's not my fault some jogger went apeshit. And saying "yeah, but the government infringes all the time after being specifically prohibited from doing that" isn't justification for infringing on our rights some more. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Sure, everyone thinks it's crazy until they accidentally wipe their ass with poison oak, then it's all "hey, can I borrow your squirrel?" But I just laugh and tell them that they have to get their own, because sharing is for losers.
