mbillips: Saw an ad in Shotgun News awhile back. Somebody was taking antique (pre-1898) bolt-action magazine rifles, rechambering them for modern ammo (7.62 NATO) and selling them while emphasizing how they were untraceable and legal for felons to own. Never underestimate the avarice of assholes.
doglover: In one of its more irregular cases, a testicle containing a bullet was sent to NABIS by a surgeon who had removed it from a Jamaican man shot more than 12 year earlier.Wat?[slurmed.com image 769x646]

ArcadianRefugee: The old England, as opposed to the new England. Which is not England at all./also, guinea pigs are not pigs. nor from Guinea. new or old.
jso2897: ZeroCorpse: I'd be okay with it if our "right to bear arms" only covered flintlocks, wheel locks, muzzle-loaders, etc. That would be fine. If you want to stock up on weapons that take 2 minutes to load, more power to you. Same goes for gangs. I'd probably be able to accept a world where gangs are armed with nothing more dangerous than a blunderbuss (which ain't exactly harmless, but isn't going to do much after the single shot).My problem with modern firearms is the ability to fire so many bullets with so little effort, and the ease with which they are reloaded. If you have a guy hold you up with a flintlock, you have a chance to kick his ass if you can make him miss his only shot.Yeah, sure, some gangs would have gatling guns, but that would just make it kind of hilarious to watch gangbangers pushing the thing around and feeding ammo into it.I think the world would be better if all weapons were downgraded to those of 1680s pirates.Yeah, that's what we want - the Crips and the Bloods, clambering around in the riggings, slashing at one another with cutlasses.
