    [–] Iowa House approves bill to let kids hunt with handguns malus545 1 points ago in Iowa

    And I'm not proposing to ban guns or hunting the same way no one is banning phones or texting.

    Better analogy. Millions of people text while they're driving every day. 99.999% of them don't get in an accident caused by their texting. A very small percentage do. But a lot of states ban texting while driving because people end up dead from a very preventable accident.

    And a lot of parents are morons who might make the wrong decision and might put someone at risk. Some of the dumbest people you know probably do or will have kids.

    I get that you're a gun enthusiast. But imo it's an adult responsibility with adult consequences. I'm not a fan of giving a 12-year old a rifle, much less a handgun, which I presume is more common to ND than a rifle.

    Just making sure that we're talking about giving a 12-year old a .357 and not a pellet gun.

    A kid, under the supervision of their parents

    The supervisor only needs to be 21. Could be a cousin, could be a sibling, could be someone that doesn't normally deal with this kid or kids at all.

    I would say, go hang out with a group of 6th graders for a day. They do dumb shit. A lot of dumb, immature shit. I coached kids this age and if I told them to do something during a timeout, maybe half of them would actually go out and do what I told them.

    Their awareness of their surroundings, their attention to detail, their weighing of risk and consequences is not so hot.

    Okay, and are those calibers used for deer hunting? If it can kill a deer, it can kill a person, right?

    Hate be a spoil, but Rule 3 indicates no pets or animals.

    There used to be certain days for posting pets, but I'm not sure that's still a thing.

    I had something come up. Apologies on being a little late, but you're the winner!

    Not sure what you're talking about. The State usually plays favorites to the cities from Des Moines and east, but none of those counties have major cities in them...

    [–] Uber vs Lyft malus545 6 points ago in cedarrapids

    If it makes no difference to you, driver collision deductible is $1,000 for Uber and $2,500 for Lyft. IDK which one pays more nowadays, but in the unfortunate event of an accident, if the driver doesn't have supplemental rideshare insurance, they'll be on the hook an extra $1,500 with Lyft.

    [–] Bill declaring no right to abortion moves to full Iowa Senate malus545 2 points ago in Iowa

    It's about controlling and suppressing women, in the guise of protecting the fetus. They just want consequences to sex, otherwise they would be pro-morning after pill and pro birth control and other contraceptives. It's why they teach abstinence only.

    [–] Atlantic Magazine study cites Johnson County as the most politically intolerant county in Iowa. malus545 3 points ago in Iowa

    They polled 2,000 people in the US, created a demographic profile of those people and what demographic factors predict prejudice, then used the demographics of each county to project prejudice based on the 2,000 person poll.

    For example, they talk about Boston being highly prejudiced because it is an "urban county with a relatively high education level. All these things tend to correlate with partisan prejudice."

    That also sounds like Johnson County to me.

    Okay, but he, like almost everyone else, certainly knows the historical context of comparing black people to apes.
