Amazing how breaking something down into fractions of 100 can illustrate so simply.

14% can't read or write, 27% don't have shelter, clean drinking water and daily earnings also stood out. 6300 languages?!

Very interesting stuff.

Google is the least of Assad's problems.
Syrian people have shown a steadfast commitment to an overthrowing of Assad's bloody corrupt regime and are showing their desire to do so every single opportunity they get.
And such irreconcilable difference is a fact we could all TRUST.

Here's that "sexist" comment Fox News is having a hissy fit over. They probably just want to stir the pot & boost ratings.

Right?

A little scarier than traditional rhetoric, for sure.

There's always chest pounding bluster coming out of North Korea, but inflammatory statements coinciding with a missing sub and upcoming joint military exercises is deeply troubling.

Terrifying detail from the article:

North Korea on Sunday warned it would make a "pre-emptive and offensive nuclear strike" in response to the joint exercises.

One instance of child molestation is inexcusable. 50 years of it?!

There should not be a statute of limitations on rape. Predators need to be held accountable no matter how long it takes a survivor to come forward.

I call this appeasement. Throughout the history, appeasement has never paid off. I guess, we never learn from history.

Our understanding of the article is also very different. :) As I read it, it is about the recent mass shootings, not just San Bernardino, but perhaps I'm missing something.

I realize I deviated from the subject of mass shootings. I tried to clarify why I was doing so - they are not the only consideration - but I can see where that got off the specific point of the article.

In my understanding, the 2nd Amendment is more complicated than simply "the right to bear arms" and, unfortunately, is open to interpretation as so much is.

I found this to be an interesting 2nd Amendment read which takes intent (good luck) and dialect into consideration, as well as providing some historical reference (some of which you also mention).

I don't wish to side-track the discussion further. Just providing another point of reference.

@john -

"my comments were not specific to one incident or one state; rather, gun violence and reform at a national level."

But that's the entire point of the article. Let's stop making this a general argument and look specifically at what happened in CA. They had all the proposed reform that gun-control activists are looking for and it made no difference. Now you're suggesting that adding more laws on the books will solve the problem of mass murders even though it made no difference in CA. This line of reasoning makes no sense to me.

Our understanding of US history and the 2nd amendment is quite different. :-) The 2nd amendment gave us the individual right to bear arms. There were practically no gun laws at all until the 1930s when they banned machine guns. Still, firearm purchase was wide open until the 1960s. The US isn't being lax on gun laws, it is moving in the direction of adding more and more, with no proven correlation to reducing murders (especially mass murders).
