He [Boba Fett] could always fiddle with the settings on his helmet and the classic Fett voice comes out. 😉

So he first speaks with the Morrison voice, then some static and throat clearing and the line is repeated with classic Fett voice, which he uses for the rest of the movie.

After reviewing the last few pages, I gather facts about guns don’t matter, effectiveness of policies are either beyond our comprehension or don’t matter, and Frink’s mom is one happening lady.

Also, I like Collipso’s new avatar.

Since banning guns entirely will never be likely, I’m interested in more feasible solutions. For instance, the rubber bullets idea is actually a fairly reasonable solution: it may not be 100% effective, but I guarantee 17 people wouldn’t have died on Valentine’s Day if the perpetrator only had access to rubber bullets. The same enjoyable aspects of guns would remain, while the lethal aspect would be drastically reduced.

Like I said earlier, all guns should be registered with something like a title following every transaction. Definitely in order to own, but even better would be limiting the ability to shoot without training and a license renewed every three or five years. No training without a permit certified by a particular licensing agency. No gun purchases to anyone under 21. No training for anyone under 16. I mean, guns and cars are both potentially quite lethal–the two are quite comparable, only fewer people shoot than drive. A police officer should be allowed to see a man with a gun and ask him to produce his license to own.

If an automatic rifle fires bullets that are capable of killing, how would you remove the power to kill from them exactly?

Just curious what you meant.

Why do the bullets need to have the power to kill is my question.

Like, rubber bullets?

Listen, I’m not a gun person so I’m not incredibly knowledgeable on the topic to the point where I can provide a good

This is exactly why I feel we pro-gun control people need to learn more about these things.

Um okay then? Are you telling me there is a reason why guns at shooting ranges need lethal power? If so, I’d love to hear it.

no that is not what I was saying.

Then, respectfully, what the hell were you saying?

merely that we pro-gun control people need to better understand guns and gun terminology. At the very least, doing so would make us more effective in debate against the other side. You yourself admitted to not being incredibly knowledgeable on the topic to the point where you can provide a good solution. Therefore, get more knowledgeable.

I agree, it helps to argue for a cause when you understand the opposing point of view better. Well said, Warbler.

Current Events. No debates! Light political discussion allowed, but if it turns into a debate, take it to the politics thread and include a link here.

Apparently Fergie (of The Black Eyed Peas) did a terribad rendition of the national anthem at the NBA All-Star game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5cOvyDpWfM&t=12s

they should find someone with ability to sing it, someone whose singing style fits the Anthem sung straight. The Anthem is not rap, rock, swing, or Jazz song.

I entirely agree. Sing it straight or find someone else who can.

I entirely disagree. We should just stop signing the national anthem at sporting events.

i see it… and i left it.

I get what you’re saying…you’re advocating for singing “I Wish I Was in Dixie” at sporting events! Yeah, I know what you’re doing: “I see it… and i left it,” meaning “Look away, look away, look away, Dixie Land.” You may think you could get away with your subliminal message, but I’m on to your Confederate sympathies!

I’m afraid that there cannot be too many movie threads. If we can justify creating another, then by golly, we should do it!

Ah, but the original intent only allowed you to see up to five minutes of the movie…and besides, that thread has been repurposed.

it’s hard to imagine that access to guns would even do much

I agree and it’s why I think the “we need our guns in case the government goes crazy” argument is nonsense.

No! We need a right to fly fighter jets and a right to drive tanks and a right to own nuclear silos! The Second Amendment needs to be updated!

There was a recurring character on the Bob Newhart show, Norman the doorman. Quite a few episodes into the show, Norman announces he’s got plane tickets to go on a trip. Bob looks at his tickets and says, “Oh, I never knew your last name before. Corman. Norman Corman. The doorman.” Norman nods, and say how happy he is to finally get to see his brother, who’s usually very busy. He’s in construction, you see. “He’s a… foreman?” guesses Bob. Norman nods. He grabs his tickets, tips his hat, and says, “Okay, good-bye, off to Utah!”

That is awesome! I love it!
