    Apparently the guy had tried jumping the fence at the White House last year, so his guns were seized by Illinois police His dad asked them back nicely and promised he wouldn't let his son get em, and apparently....let him have em anyways

    It's been making the rounds on the gun subreddits. /u/kareems is making some clarifications if anyone has criticisms. Also, allegedly a user on /r/liberalgunowners is claiming some NICS reform was slipped into the spending omnibus bill

    I wish I could see the source data for that last graph. It's been floating around since the parkland shooting but while there is data on Wikipedia from 2013 that seems like it could back the graph, it places the per capita ownership rate of American firearms much lower which makes it seem less concrete. I would believe the graph for modern per capita ownership, but where on Wikipedia that data came from is unclear.

    She's also a manifestation of the cosmic force like Anakin was, apparently So now there's grounds she might take the helm in the chosen one prophecy as well

    So the explanation Disney is pushing in their new book as to why Rey has such skills with a lightsaber and the force in TLJ is because she basically downloaded them from Kylo's brain when they had Force Skype calls
  17. There's also the fact that the DNC is barely skimming by on campaign funds ATM Whereas the RNC is breaking records with donations

    He's not in jail yet, the Crown is still kicking him around the courtroom. His sentencing day has been several dates just this year, and then the prosecution keeps bouncing it down the road. The basis for one of the arguments against him was that by using his girlfriend's pug's "cuteness" to underscore Nazi related phrases and imagery on the internet, it was like he was radicalizing entire football stadiums The "final" court day is scheduled for March 20th currently

    America's view on Monarchies.

    Adding to this, there was a chance for an American monarchy when Washington(As in George, not the place filled with leftists or the other place filled with leftists) was setting precedent. But there have been very few figures that have been so polarizing in a universal and positive manner as him, and even then it was also because it was unsure if such a large Democratic Republic could maintain it's integrity the way the sprawling European Empire's claimed territories were. With some variation of the republican model becoming the status quo for most of the world, the advancement of genetics and the knowledge of the consequences of inbreeding, an incredibly high response rate to favoring individualism in the US, and perhaps also the general secularization of the developed world, I don't think the establishment of a monarchy in a massive nation like the United States could possibly maintain effective political rule. I suppose it depends on where the central authority is placed? Thinking back through the major nations in or around Europe, the things that spring to mind are: Subordinate princes/states under one king. Maybe the King on the biggest throne and the Princes on lesser ones. Or something like the Roman assimilation/semi-colonization of lesser kingdoms in it's domain One king with multiple hats/chairs. The Austria-Hungary after the reforms I suppose, but going so far back as Ancient Egypt with the conflicts between Upper and Lower Egypt A confederation of equal authorities with an elected leader like the HRE An alliance of equal authorities
  22. Came across this through Discord, not familiar with the site. Anyone seeing anything to corroborate the claim put up through Google Translate that Russia has deployed 6 nukes to the region?

    The "first" deputy that we knew about that resigned has lawyered up against his former boss for basically slandering his actions There's a bunch of CNN tweet videos but near the bottom there's the legalspeak statement by his lawyer outlining his actions and justifications for "not going in"
