They also said "The only thing you know is that you know nothing" which means that you don't really know yourself.

I don't know if they did much else, but that yogurt they invented is enough for me to applaud them.

Really? You couldn't even manage "It's all Greek to me"? I dub thy joke a failure, by the authority vested in me by no one whatsoever.

"including a machine gun"...Something tells that the Feds got lazy again & "didn't have the manpower to prosecute".

I'm a gun guy. I love my guns. And I fully support that a felony conviction prevents you from owning one. So, I'm really curious, since the article doesn't mention anything about this, how in the bloody hell did this guy get so many damn guns with a felony on his record?

Resisting urge to geek out on Greek philosophy and put an end to the nascent derp on this page, which is only bound to get worse.

But then there's the whole arguing on the internet / Special Olympics thing.

Because if you make violent criminals owning guns illegal, only criminals will own guns.

As any liberal will tell you, and the statistics will bear out, black people are more likely to have a felony conviction on their record. This makes a felony conviction as a discerning factor "racist" in nature and therefore, unconstitutional.

Article states "AR-15", linked article says it was an "air rifle". Don't know about the others at his home.

Also, first article does not mention "firing into the air".

When I was 15, I got busted for shoplifting. I think it may have been a felony.

After I was punished, they told me my record would be cleared once I turned 18.

I wonder if I'm not allowed to buy a gun.

Court decision here: http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/opinions/a0896-11.pdf

I'd side with the defendant on the issue of criminal intent, but I agree with the state that he shouldn't have guns.
