I haven't seen that one, but seeing dildos misused as things other than sex toys is always a little funny to me.

"Obscenity" laws are 100% bullshit. They're just the result of Puritanical insecurities. This is a secular nation. I get enraged thinking about how SCOTUS interprets the First Amendment not to include certain things - did you get that from thin air?!

Censorship laws, "obscenity" laws, nudity laws, polygamy laws - they all ought not exist.

I am in conflict when it comes to guns. On one hand, I don't believe the Second Amendment says that all Americans have the right to firearms - it implies the right to pertain only to the people directly responsible for protection of the State (country). On the other hand, I do believe in free commerce. On the third hand, I strongly disagree with Congress's power to regulate "interstate commerce," a power which they have grossly abused and misconstrued. On the fourth hand, protection of citizens is utmost.

Solution: mandate that states require thorough background checks for gun sales, or take away 60+% of the offending state's funding.

I like the spirit of this protest, and it got plenty of attention, but do I think it will achieve anything? - about 20% sure it will.

There are plenty of crimes involving illegal carry of weapons to worry about. My state has some of the most stringent gun laws in the nation, yet they did nothing to stop the problems we face in places like Sacramento, Oakland, South Central, Compton, and so on.

Hold on there friend, Sacramento isnt no where near as bad as those, your thinking of Stockton, which was names murder capital of this side of the states 3 years in a row and was top 3 in the nation. San Francisco has ALOT more violets then you get here in Sac. Sscramento isnt even on any lists. http://www.homesecurityshield.org/news/ ... alifornia/

Also our college campuses have people wielding bibles not guns and will just yell at you calling you a siner for no fucking reason as your walking to class......

That is precisely what the NRA wants. For everyone to be afraid of everyone else's guns. So afraid that they need a gun to defend themselves from their fear! I could rant but I will simply be blunt: I hate guns. The sight of them is physically revolting to me. I don't get people's fascination and obsession with them. But it's a losing battle in the US which is completely desensitized to gun tragedies.

Those of you with big collections should remember that Texas has a limit to the number of dildos you're allowed to own. More than four and you possess a sex device with intent to sell!

I told my mom about those protests, assuming she would find it amusing. She sort of just shook her head and made an "ick" face. I had the thought that if she had a good reaction, then I might tell her about my toys. I have opted not to do so, and so my sister is the only one who knows still. Other than y'all, and I'm so happy for this forum. :blush:

It's just a fact that if you have a 'gun free zone' where law abiding citizens MUST disarm themselves, then a crazy homicidal maniac will know nobody can fight back, making the decision to go ham on campus with a gun much easier for said crazy homicidal maniac.

If you arm the public, they can fight back. Before you give me something about how more guns will make the situation worse because nobody will know the real shooter or other innocents will get hurt heres a few gems of knowledge: trained concealed carriers know when to put their guns up, and who is a threat.

I'm sorry, but disarming the public because of the actions of a few crazed individuals isn't right. Its kind of a touchy subject for me (being Texan, guns and being an armed populace have been ingrained into our culture and lifestyle... taking them away is not a good idea), so I'll just be putting my $0.02 here and taking leave of it :nerdy:

Just playing the devil's advocate here, but... isn't it already like that? Criminals dont obey laws and if someone wants to do harm they will, regardless of the tool used. Knowing CC holders are around is like having plainclothes cops around, because there is a liscensing and testing process to carry. I'd feel safer knowing there were people who want to do good, and have gone through the loops to carry around rather than knowing everyone is disarmed- except those who don't care about the law and want to do harm.

*nod* Yep my friend was just telling me about this when I shared the story...though I believe the number is six. It's pretty crazy though that you can be jailed and/or registered as a sex offender if you're caught. Pretty obvious where the priorities of their lawmakers lie :/ But my god I think a few of us (me included) would probably get jailed for life for our collections XD there's probably a joke in there about lethal injection and cumtubes but I have no idea where the hell to start lol.

Also I just wanted to post this. After reading up on a bit more in depth I found this response during a case against the state which they were claiming it was unconstitutional to not be allowed the right to buy/sell and own safe sex toys for use privately or with another person. Kind of speaks for itself lol not much more needs said.

"The State of Texas argued that the state has the right to regulate morality: "The state also argued in a brief that Texas has legitimate “morality based” reasons for the laws, which include “discouraging prurient interests in autonomous sex and the pursuit of sexual gratification unrelated to procreation.”"

I was trying to look up that law too and see if it's still current or not. I'm a little confused by the information I'm getting, but that argument for policing private, safe sexual conduct makes me blind with rage.

Gun control is one of the dumbest issues people go crazy over. Honestly, when you apply the logic behind why we don't need stricter gun control to other topics it's laughable.

"Look, it doesn't matter if we outlaw drugs, if people want to get high they will find a way."

I have yet to see a pro-gun argument that uses thoroughly sound logic. "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." Ok, so if gun control measures get stricter we'd disarm law enforcement? It really is sad how often people overreact to the thought of gun control. It seems like pro-gun camps act like any measure of control = "They wanna take our guns!"

If you want to own a gun, then there should be regular exams to make sure you can fire it accurately and to test your judgement of when to fire and when to try other means. How often do we hear about accidental shootings? A lot more than we hear these stories of the good guy with a gun being in the right place at the right time.

I thought the limit was 6 dildos, and that it got repealed.

While the second half of that statement is true, it doesn't necessarily prove the first half, so that true bit could really only logically be used as a counter to "this legislation will keep the [bad thing] out of criminal hands." No, criminals in general will get it anyhow; the legislation will just increase the risk to the criminal for acquisition and distribution, which may or may not put some out of business.

Plenty of pro-gun people would agree with this also.

As for the protest itself, I think it would be more effective for students and faculty to show their displeasure by leaving the schools there, or (if they can afford it) transferring to those private institutions that have gun-free zones. In addition, if I chose to participate I actually wouldn't bring a toy I cared about, in case either it got stolen or some unfortunate accident should happen to it. My good toys would stay home.

Most people who do own guns are very responsible with them because we know what they are capable of. Just like everything its the 1% that have ruined it for the rest it isn't fair to judge a whole segment of the population who use guns responsibly by the actions of a few, you wouldn't blame every dog owners for those who use dog to fight each other (which is a sick practice) i would hope not. As for an "exam" might be nice in theory but doesn't really solve any problems they can still steal it from someone who legally have one this can include those in the police force.

It was six and it was struck down about 2008.

As for the protests, while I don't agree with the stance it would be funny to get out my Bruce for that. :nomnom: Double barrelled shotgun.
