Well, at least they're allowing the Bobbies to carry guns now! Got to defend against that Armed Populace!

Default I'll save LR the trouble.

14 year olds are adults? Comprehension, big word and reading is hard.

obandoj beat me to it.. Tiered licensing makes a lot of sense to me. It's the only way to solve this problem. Hell I bought a 600 for my first bike and yes I shouldn't have. Good thing I wasn't 20 something when I bought it otherwise I would be dead by now. The libertarian point of view always makes sense until someone dies.. oops the spinach was tainted, the meat was bad, Enron was reporting income falsely.. etc. Laws and regulations exist cause because personal responsibility doesn't work all of the time. kbully should know this better than anyone.

Default kwrong

"Britain has one CCTV camera for every 14 citizens now. Total effect on crime = 0. " Prove it.. I don't like the British solution but if you yahoos continue to fight helmet laws and tiered licensing we will lose motorcycling..

kcoder what exactly are you trying to say. I am a dense loser who works at a boring company. Hand guns are far more dangerous than a .22 rifle. Game Rifles and Shotguns are used in less that 1% of crimes I think..

I sure don't. Ten years back, the allergist and I figured out that corn was one of the reasons why my nose was stuffy 24/7. Nowadays I'm left hoping that Ethanol demand will see to it that corn-based food additives give way to sugar as prices equalize.



And how come it seems to take yer average 'Murcan citizen until the age of forty to figure out that the 'someone' who should do 'something' is themselves?

I'd offer to teach them. But then, I'm single.
