Bruce is right: all hindsight. Can you see the next one yet?

A couple decades ago I bought the David L. Burge "Relative Pitch" ear training tapes.  Since they are all audio, I can rip them to my phone and practice while I am biking or raking leaves or whatever. No screen to look at and no internet connection needed.

How’s that perfect pitch coming?

Your 2 gun limit is not reasonable.  Just for hunting.  You use a shotgun for birds and a rifle for game.  You need a much bigger rifle to shoot a moose than to shoot a deer.  I'd also bet the type of shotgun you use for ducks is different from what you use for turkeys.  And a rifle that is good for target shooting is usually not good for hunting.

I personaly think any weapon that takes a cartridge over 5 bullets should have a stiff annual registration fee.  And a more extensive background check to buy.

The way I see to get around the Gun Show issue is to simply have people who want to buy guns get a license first.  The background check is done for issuing the license and so you can just go into the gun store with your license and buy whatever you want.

There’s no constitutional right to hunt ducks is there? What would be reasonable? Small shotgun, deer rifle, I suppose. My uncle needed a 12-gauge to occasionally put down livestock. I guess the point is where do you draw the line and given the incidence of mass shootings ...

Did their training tell them not to enter the school?

The very same legal authority that acts against abuses of other rights.

None of the other constitutional rights are infinite.

All it really takes is to agree that the right to bear arms is not the same as the right to have every possible weapon in any possible quantity.

Just as we agree that the right to free speech is not the right to say anything in any possible situation. Free speech doesn't allow you to libel someone. Free speech doesn't allow you to threaten someone.

See? Freedom of speech is not infinite. Constitutional right, but not an infinite one.

The right to bear arms shouldn't be infinite either.

I agree entirely.  And I also think the horse is out of the barn. So here’s my solution: everybody gets the right to own 2 guns, a handgun for personal protection and a long rifle for hunting and target practice.  That should be enough to satisfy the requirements of a well regulated militia (or whatever the phrase is).  There would be limits on magazines, ammunition etc. Basically, the minimum America would need to defend itself against an armed attack from Canada. And grizzly 🐻. If you want a new gun, you would have to surrender the old gun. It may sound as if I am being flippant but I’m serious.

Again, what authority did they have to take this persons guns or lock him up?  What was “beyond a reasonable doubt” for them to do anything?  What statute would you support that would allow them to do something with these tips?

Cheers,
Andy

What sort of legal authority would you support that would deny a citizen his 2nd amendment rights?

Wait, I have an idea. 

We could hire the dreamers to guard schools, instead of deporting them.

I think they would work cheap in exchange for staying. 

win win

A security guard makes what? $15/hr? You’re going to take on a guy with an AR15? How is that going to turn out?


A million-man (and woman) army of teachers, dressed in Dockers and golf shirts, armed with handguns? Seriously, this is the answer?

It may differ between platforms, but in Android, from the "Songs" list, just hit the "+" button and you get the option of a blank sheet or various standard forms to fill in.  Easy.


I’ll give that a try.

Back to the topic:

I’d have the young man listen to (and learn) some solos from Trombone Shorty and Jimmy Bosch.

Band in a Box might also be useful.

(I can't figure out how to make my own chord charts in IReal Pro.)

Thanks, Andy.  I was under the impression that it was out of print.  John Mason referred me to the same retailer.  I’ve got an order in with them now, and hopefully that means Urbie may get some kind of royalty from it.  I’m hoping that doesn’t turn out to just be wishful thinking.

A couple of bucks maybe? Generous.

It appears that the Russians were not big Hillary fans.

Hillary wouldn't have been in position to get the Dem nom if she hadn't been a US Senator and she wouldn't have been in position for the NY Senate nom if she hadn't been highly visible during her husband's terms as President.

But... it was the sort of visibility that made her a serious consideration. She had shown herself to be an strong campaigner, able to think on her feet, answer any policy question (and dodge trap questions), RAISE MONEY, and establish an identity separate from Bill. It wasn't as if Harry Truman had put Bess up for a Senate seat.

Even in the health care flop of '94 she showed she was able to command the details of complex problems. That would be a qualifier for someone expected to write and vote on legislation in the Senate.


But so many people just couldn't stand her.

Generally, likability goes a long way in politics.

Hillary seemed to rub a lot of people the wrong way. Maybe it was the ambition.
