Yes.   Slander, defamation and libel can be claimed in a suit. Case would be stronger if you can show financial loss.

If anyone's done it, I'm sure they have.

Think that one kids family sued CNN. (The kids who 'smirked" at the Indian dude who was harassing him

You don't have to worry PopoJeff. Ain't a damm thing gonna change. Nobody's got the balls in congress to make these changes.

Correct. No one's got the balls to spend 100billion of taxpayer money on such a failure of an idea, and enact legislation that will start a civil war.
Yup, that's why we will continue to have mass shootings and accidentally gun deaths.

Come up with an idea that will work. Your idea is not feasible, and will not work. Go back to the drawing board.

Abolish "Gun Free Zones"
Assign armed guards (unemployed Veterans) to school districts.
Metal detectors at school entrances.
Quit glorifying mass shootings with endless media coverage.
Let some conservative ideals run the tv networks (they wont broadcast the gangbanger videos)
Prosecute parents who let their toddlers get their guns (already being done)

All of the above ideas have a better chance at working and actually showing some results, than your $100+ billion  Nazi confiscation scheme

Cots: No cost to the owner but subsidized by the the federal government to help the manufacturers with the costs.

Right there is my big NO vote.

Subsidized by the Federal Govt means taxes.  This "problem" affects 0.0044342507645259936% of the population   (327,000,000 population / 14500 homicides by gun)

We already tax the ever living crap out of the working folks. Quit taking my money.... remember a few pages back where i said my YTD deduction are already over $35k?


Guess we could tweak that number a bit if we're just looking at accidental deaths by firearms.  Since we know this wont stop the criminal.
Accidental firearms deaths per year  = 495.   https://www.aftermath.com/content/accidental-shooting-deaths-statistics/

Now we take that 495 accidental firearms deaths per year against the 327,000,000 population.... and here's the percent of US citizens it affects   0.00015137614678899082%


Tell that to the victims of Sandy Hook, Pulse Night Club, Las Vegas, and the countless others that it don't mean nothing.

There you go thinking with feeling rather than fact.

The facts show this "problem" is statistically insignificant.

Of course it's significant to the people that are affected.
 But now, all of the locations you mentioned were the result of acts committed by a criminal.  You have still failed to show how this will prevent a criminal from committing a criminal act
That may be so, but how about the crimes or accidents that are committed by stolen guns? Or how about the case where the criminal overpowered the owner and used his gun against him?

Oh right, it don't matter because statistically speaking the numbers are too low to count.


All the numbers are above.  495 accidental, 14500 homicide.... what you describe now is somewhere in between.  Still statistically not a big issue.

And STILL waiting for you to explain how you will prevent the criminal from being a criminal.
I never said the technology will prevent the criminal from being a criminal. A criminal don't care about that.

The technology will prevent the gun from firing when the gun ends up in the wrong hands; besides the owner. i.e. A five year old who got a hold of his daddy's gun. Is the five year old a criminal?

Why do you act like such a tool?
Did I ever call a 5 year old a criminal?

Let me spell this out for you, since you are missing the most basic of facts laid out in front of you.
I've told you already, if you want to do this for the sake of the 5 year old who gets daddy's gun...cool... go for it. Make the gun, sell it, and let those who think they're not smart enough to own a real gun buy it for the added protection.
But to force it upon the entire country, at the cost of of about 100 billion dollars (approx 300mil guns, avg low price $350ea)... AND expect the government (tax payers) to fund it. For something that affects .00015% of the population..... is absolutely ludicrous.
   (A $30 gun safe/ gun vault offers the child protection your looking for)

   And thats just the cost of the guns, not even factoring in your cell phone tech with the call centers and employees, and god know what else.

I'll stop here, as more than one topic point seems to screw up your OODA loop.
166  Bitcoin / Mining support / S17 issue solved. Restored power to 3rd board. May be a common issue. on: December 18, 2019, 12:39:34 AM
So, just an FYI.... happened to me today, and a friend last week.

Woke up to learn my S17 56th went offline at 5am. Kernel log indicated it shut down because there was more than 0.5 volt difference between hash boards.

I rebooted.   Nothing.
I rebooted.   Nothing.

Went downstairs and pulled the plug.  Let it sit 5min and plugged it back in.  Vroom....back in gear.

Was up and running and then I got distracted by my time machine (xbox).

A few hours later, I check my pool and notice I'm running about 20-25th lower than normal.

Yep, the S17 56th is running about 2/3's normal hash.
Log in, 3rd board not detected. Reboot, nothing. Same. Only picking up 2 boards.

I popped the top off the miner. I found the same thing happened to me that happened to my friend. The rear buss bar wasn't fully seated into the 3rd hash board. It was at the slightest of angles, fully seated into the 1st board, but maybe 1/4" raised out of the clip in the 3rd board.  Pressed back into place and we are up and running like normal again.

Hopefully sharing this information may help someone in the future.


Pop the cover off the top of the PSU. Look in and you can see two bars running left to right, clipping into the clip atop the hash boards. The rear one likes to wiggle up and out. I'm guessing due to constant vibration of fans running.

So if you're only getting power to 2 of the 3 boards, check this before shipping it out for service.

Ok, you are just a troll..
By
Why are you calling me a troll? What am I doing that's troll-ish?

Ive been nothing but honest, respectful and logical with responses to your ideas and theories.  The reason this fellow is calling you a troll is your dismissive attitude towards any contrary logic or facts.  You've done absolutely nothing to show how this will actually work/succeed, and offer defensive retorts to opposing thoughts. There have been zero replies supporting your ideas working, and a plethora indicating otherwise.

Like the statistics I posted above. Your response is "think it doesn't matter to that .0038% ?".  Thats simply an assanine response.  You are being shown facts that clearly indicate your perceived solutions for a problem dont work, will not work, and really isnt a statistical issue in the grand scheme of things.

You want to save a few kids from irresponsible parents, fine. I'm cool with that.  Maybe this will help in that department. But we've already shown you it has major flaws, even for that application.
That's your opinion.

I've asked others to share their ideas, including you, and have gotten no replies.

Perhaps others are afraid to voice their ideas in fear of getting flamed.

Me, I don't give a shit what other people think of me. So I'll just keep posting until I don't feel like it or I get banned (It wouldn't be the first time.)


^^^^^ exactly what I'm talking about.  You shared an idea. It wont work. You've been shown it wont work. Yet you still defend it.  And you never requested ideas from others.  This is your thread, about your ideas.this is why liberals are laughed at. Your liberal ideas seem wonderful in theory to yourselves. But when you take the first step of implementation, the implosion occurs.

If my opinion, and the opinion of literally everyone else who responded, are wrong..... then go ahead and implement your grand solution and prove us wrong.
How do know for sure that my ideas won't work if they'd never been tried?

Again, WHAT ARE YOUR IDEAS? LET'S HEAR THEM. Please.

Have you read none of the 5 previous pages?   You were offered several reasons why this will not work. The easiest to comprehend are the lack of reliable cell phone coverage in the US, and the fact you expect gun manufacturers to create 383,000,000 guns for free. You skirted right over those, and never explained how you would surmount those hurdles.
I never offered any ideas to solve your perceived problem. One theory I'd support is somehow creating less pansy-ass millennials who think the government can save them.

It all depends on the pretrial hearing in the judges chambers. If the prosecutor drops the charges based on one or more of several things, I might just let the matter drop, as well. If he doesn't, I will have to press my claim in a common law court of record, thereby taking it out of the administrative court.

Cool

 I cant.  I just cant.   Good luck man.  

If you are the arresting cop, you have to be there, too.    Cool

EDIT: Look. If you are only there by affidavit or by dash-cam/vest-cam, the judge will consider it hearsay if I require verification. So, if you aren't there, there isn't any use in having a pretrial hearing. Might as well go straight to trial.

If we go to trial, I will file a claim as a man on top of your complaint, with the clerk of the court, before trial date.

I have the right to face my accuser. Standard right.

The indictment lists my accuser as The-State-of-XXX/The-County-of-XXX/The-City-of-XXX. Since I am appearing unrepresented as a man, not even represented by myself, but rather present, my accuser must take the oath/affirmation, get on the stand, and tell the court - viva voce - how I have harmed or damaged him/her.

Further, the definitions does not include a man/woman in the the way they are written. The defs only talk about persons. Even a human being is defined in federal statutes as a minor who is a ward of the court. None of this is me, a man.

False arrest. I will seek damages.


Ok  sure.  Have fun with that

I'd say they were put in a no win situation. Do you see where that truck stopped?  Don't take out the shooters, and you or others are dead at the hands of the shooters.  Take them out, and possibly hit nearby innocents.

Lets be honest here, they were absolutely put in a bad position, but they most certainly did fuck up. If they wanted cover they should have used their cruisers, not the random occupied vehicles of bystanders. They didn't even bother telling the bystanders to exit the vehicles. Also as you know as a trained police officer, one of the primary things they drill into your head in training is to be aware of what is down range and behind your target. This was an utter failure of basic police procedure and tactics. If this was a civilian who acted this way with these results in self defense, he would absolutely be going to prison.

You're correct there.  And I can actually show you one of our SOP's on the use of deadly force that says we cannot take a shot in that situation.

Right, the gun can't be fired without human interaction. Again, the problem comes from the gun ending up in the wrong hands. We, as humans, can't always control that.

Ok.  You're arguing in a circle and missing your exit.  But that's ok.  We agree that the human factor is the issue. You're looking to "baby-proof" the gun to restrict access. But wouldn't it be more effective to fix the human?   Instead of a "crap, can't use that gun, where's the knife?" result.....   what if we fix the root cause so their thought process is now "geez, I can't do that, imagine the death destruction and misery I'd cause". Or "can't do that, it's illegal".     Your idea is putting a bandaid on an arterial bleed.

I certainly don't have the answer to fixing the gang mentality, criminal appeal, lack of respect and mental health issues that cause 99% of shootings. But I do know we proved your idea will not work, based simply on cell coverage gaps.
You can't be there all the time to make sure your gun or any gun doesn't end up in the wrong hands. A five year old who got a hold of his daddy's gun for example. How do you stop the kid from firing the gun?

Same way I stopped my 3 kids from getting anything I didn't want them to have.  The gun, locked up. My money, phone, beer, cigarettes... told them no and enforced consequences.

I've got about 30 different firearms right now. And have had guns since about 1988. Guess how many of my kids were harmed. Zero.  Guess how many were stolen. Zero.  

Which is another point I mentioned a few pages ago.  When you enact new laws/restrictions on guns, the only people it affects are the legal gun owners. The criminals don't care what your law says.
We already have laws to punish a parent if the kid kid gets hold of a gun.
Congratulations. You are one of the smart and responsible gun owners.

Tell that to a family that wasn't so lucky and lost someone because someone wasn't as careful as you.

Or, the victims of mass shootings like Sandy Hook.



And about 99% of gun owners are like me.  Why do you keep trying to punish us for the actions of the other 1%.  
Actually less. Just checked some stats.
 383,000,000 guns in the US.  
14,500 homicides (2017)

What is that? About .0038 %

Compare to 1,250,000 car crash deaths per year avg

Which machine is really more dangerous to the populace?
178  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Solutions on: December 16, 2019, 06:40:10 AM
Legal guns not firing in public just means criminals using illegal guns don't have to worry about a gun-wielding public. I believe there were already several incidents in the US where people shot down mass shooters. Imagine if you actually have to wait for the police to come.

Sure you can make it so that in the event that a mass shooting happens all the other guns unlock but there will be a delay between the center receiving information that one is indeed happening and them being able to deactivate the block.

Not to mention they'd probably spend even more time "confirming" the incident before being forced to unlock guns coz "Guns Bad!".

Since criminals follow the law and don't do things that are illegal, that sounds great!

Wait...

Wait they don't follow the law? I'm shookt!
Taking down a shooter in public is the job of cops; not fellow bystanders. Law enforcement don't need preauthorization to fire their guns. Unless, we change the law so that cops can't just shoot anyone when they feel like it. Maybe they should get an "ok" from a superior before they can shoot.

Look, this is far from being a reality because of too much red tape and organizations like the NRA. No one has the balls to initiate change. We will continue to have mass shootings and accidental gun deaths. This is the world we live in unless we truly want change.

Awww, that's cute. Yeah, I'm so totally just gonna sit there and wait for the cops while someone have a gun pointed at me. Those gun-owning bystanders can go pound sand, I don't need their help!   Roll Eyes

For a taste of what a disarmed police force is go look at the all those cops knifed down in the UK. Now before you point out that UPS hostage incident, it were the cops that were stupid, not the guns.
PopoJeff, you're a cop. You agree with that? That the cops were stupid?

I'd say they were put in a no win situation. Do you see where that truck stopped?  Don't take out the shooters, and you or others are dead at the hands of the shooters.  Take them out, and possibly hit nearby innocents.
