Remarks by President Biden and Vice President Harris at a Campaign Event | Wilmington, DE.
  • give me one good reason you would need a fucking assault rifle

    Assault rifles have been banned from manufacture for civilians since 1986. Meaning the only people who can afford the few there are are the rich.

    No, Harris is talking about banning arms in common use, which are explicitly protected by the right of the people to keep and bear arms. (Re: Heller) One does not need to justify their use of their rights. They simply have it. Just like every other right.

    Harris is attacking rights, is grasping the third rail, as one of the first things she says on her campaign trail.

  • Remarks by President Biden and Vice President Harris at a Campaign Event | Wilmington, DE.
  • Considering people of all stripes (including Democrats) own guns and appreciate the right to keep and bear arms, that is a very odd idea.

  • Remarks by President Biden and Vice President Harris at a Campaign Event | Wilmington, DE.
  • we will work to pass universal background checks, red flag laws, and an assault weapons ban.

    She just cannot avoid the third rail that is gun bans. It's been about a day and already she is going for it.

  • MAGA world is really mad that Trump is no longer running against Biden
  • The US election cycle is too long anyway. I'm very for this idea.

  • Russian soldiers attempt a motorcycle assault near Sinkivka, Kharkiv region.
  • I particularly like how they seem to constantly fall into craters. Something a tracked vehicle (maybe put some armor on it too!) would do much better with. Too bad Russia's tracked vehicles are becoming increasingly endangered.

  • When ChatGPT summarises, it actually does nothing of the kind
  • Human summarization of the above story:

    LLMs do not understand the text, so they cannot pick out the important sentences. Because of this, they are unable to summarize the text; instead they shorten the text. Unless the text is very rambly, important meaning will be lost when shortening.

    Also the LLMs lie.

  • Joe Manchin weighs run against Kamala Harris
  • I agree, actions do speak louder than words. Manchin voted yes to send $60b in lethal aid to Ukraine just this year. This 'Russian asset' sure is getting a lot of Russians killed. He doesn't seem very good at being a Russian asset.

    Edit: Improved the link

  • Joe Manchin weighs run against Kamala Harris
  • Can he BE more of a Russian asset?!?

    After this visit, I am even more convinced that defeating Vladimir Putin and ending his ruthless war against the Ukrainian people must remain our top priority,” said Senator Manchin

    Considering this statement, I'm not sure where you got the Russian asset thing from. Is it just reflexive to call people Russian assets who want to destroy Putin?

    The White House Has a Plan to Slash Plastic Use in the U.S.
  • Plastic at supermarkets is very effective at reducing food spoilage. Ditching the plastic will result in much more food hitting the bin, and higher food costs. Given all that binned food must be created and transported again, it's a huge net negative for the environment.

  • Tanker carrying Russian oil to China attacked by Houthi sea drone
  • Not that I'm aware of. The uncrewed surface vessel in this case was one of the attacking vessels.

    Minnesota ban on 18- to 20-year-olds obtaining handgun permits is unconstitutional, federal appeals court says
  • unless black people are owning guns then they’ll be all for gun control

    Red states tend to have some of the most free firearms laws in the country. And many of those states, particularly in the south, have large black populations. In fact, many of them have explicitly killed policies that were used to discriminate based on race, namely may-issue permitting laws.

  • Minnesota ban on 18- to 20-year-olds obtaining handgun permits is unconstitutional, federal appeals court says
  • The founding writers of the constitution never imagined people would fit hand cannons in their pants ... Try walking around with an 18 inch pistol concealed in your pants.

    Hand cannons for hundreds of years before the writing of the Constitution were smaller than that. Where do you get this idea hand cannons were always that large?:

    In 1432, Joseon dynasty under the reign of Sejong the Great introduced the world's first handgun named se-chongtong (세총통). Se-chongtong has a total length of 13.8 cm [5.4in] ... Se-chongtong was used by both soldiers and civilians, including women and children, as a personal defense weapon

  • OneDrive deleted my files!
  • Some games also have beta channels that are just the past versions of the game. Weather this exists or not is completely up to the game publisher though. I mostly see it in games that have active mod communities, so they want to let you lock down your version so your mod pack doesn't break suddenly.

  • YouTube now disallowing any gun related content on its platform.
  • Making it harder for firearm education, use, handling and entertainment videos to be on the most popular video platform is not a positive step. The resources people have to safely handle and use firearms has now diminished.

    Hand cannons had been in use for hundreds of years (citation 1, citation 2) before the Constitution was written. Where do you get this idea they were not aware of their existence?

  • I agree. Schools need to teach kids practical skills. Firearms handling and use among them. Other good ones would be how to file taxes, how credit cards/loans work, how to repair basic items around the house, how to cook basic meals, etc. It doesn't need to dominate schooling, a class or two covering the above in highschool would be plenty. Most of those topics are pretty short, but very important for life.
