see, that’s gun control
you don’t take away a person’s right to bear arms
you take away a person’s ability to abuse their arms
i mean it’s high maintenance but i really think it’d be worth it if it saves lives
Its not higher maintenence than dead kids.
To get a gun in Japan, first, you have to attend an all-day class and pass a written test, which are held only once per month. You also must take and pass a shooting range class. Then, head over to a hospital for a mental test and drug test (Japan is unusual in that potential gun owners must affirmatively prove their mental fitness), which you’ll file with the police. Finally, pass a rigorous background check for any criminal record or association with criminal or extremist groups, and you will be the proud new owner of your shotgun or air rifle. Just don’t forget to provide police with documentation on the specific location of the gun in your home, as well as the ammo, both of which must be locked and stored separately. And remember to have the police inspect the gun once per year and to re-take the class and exam every three years.

I’m only sharing tweets for those who are not on twitter and can’t see how passionate and outraged journalists are as they tweet from #Ferguson.

Australian Cosplayer Scene Alert: Bryce Dulaurent
At SMASH! over the last weekend, one Bryce Dulaurent (Blackiichann) was posing as a cosplay interviewer. During these interviews, he would act lecherously - an example of this would be his asking for a kiss on the cheek, then turning to kiss them as they did so, turning an already gross and pressured experience into a sexual assault.
During these interviews, he would also ask extremely inappropriate questions on topics such as the cosplayer’s sex life and whether cosplaying got them laid - this also extended to him requesting sexual acts from cosplayers. When requested to stop with inappropriate questions or mentioning relationship status, he would ignore the requests and continue. He would also pose for photos with cosplayers and proceed to grope the cosplayer he was posing with. He would deliberately stand with his hand just above the cosplayers bum or chest when posing with them.
You can see in the second attached photos that this was one of the videos he posted, which he was or is also looking to post to a YouTube channel. However the original Instagram preview has since been removed after he claimed they “weren’t assault”.
Reports around the con scene have made it known that he’s also done this at Sydney Supanova. As the 2014 Vice-Convenor of AVCon, I suggest if anyone sees this guy at any conventions, you immediately report him to staff or a higher officer of the event to have him escorted off site and/or contact the appropriate authorities. If you experience his behaviour and you are willing to do so, you can also submit an incident report to the event organiser.
All Australian cons have been alerted to his behaviour and are in discussion for how to make Australian cons a much safer place from people and behaviour like this.
Here are his accounts:
Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest school district in the US, is ending its zero tolerance policy and will instead implement measures that emphasize counseling over punitive measures. Research shows a correlation between early run-ins with law enforcement and drop-out risk. LAUSD hopes a new approach will help minimize that risk.

"I’m sick of how bisexuality is erased in LGBT spaces. I get really nervous before any LGBT event, especially Pride. I feel incredibly sad and hopeless when gay and lesbian people call me insulting names. If gay and lesbian people don’t understand me – Continue reading Prejudice at Pride at Empathize This
This just punched me in the heart.
When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.
