Why would a regular person need a gun more powerful than a handgun? by Syrosion in NoStupidQuestions

[–]OBLIVIATER 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's not so much a fantasy (at least for my family) but just preparing for a possibility. There's always a chance of a solar flare, nucular war, or some other scenario, and preppers or even just concerned family driven people want to make sure they have the best chance in a situation like that.

If you've ever lived in a rural area with some drug problems you would know that sometimes a baseball bat isn't enough protection.

Widely different environment, history, and population demographics. Australia doesn't suffer from hardly any of the issues that plague America like debilitating racial tension, police brutality epidemics, a huge divide between rural and urban population, etc. Not to mention America's bloody history and it's basis on the right to bear arms (our country was founded by people who used their guns to overthrough a government) You are trying to cut and paste solution for a much different country whose history couldn't be more different.

I don't think its possible to make a test that would work on this scale that would be thorough enough to completely stop mass shootings, just like I don't think a ban on guns would stop mass shootings (especially with the rise of technology)

I personally don't have a good solution, and I'm not sure there is one. I just don't personally believe that trying to take everyone's guns is a great idea.

Its not so much protecting against the Government, its more of protecting against the people who used to be your neighbors, but are now a danger to you and your family.

The background check for buying a gun is much more thorough than most people think. Its probably the most thorough background check anyone will go through in their lives unless they decide to work for certain government organizations. Also its a bit harder to check for "mental health" than you might think. There isn't just a check box and many people with mental health issues that could be dangerous with a gun would be able to mask their issues easily.

I wouldn't say /r/livestreamfail is one of the biggest sources of twitch traffic.

Really? He's been around for a while, I've known of him since early H1Z1 days. Don't watch him ever, but I know he's been "big" for years

They themselves aren't weirdos, they are just a group of people with a smart as fuck manager. This guy made a reality TV show out of streamers and the loner weebs eat it up. The real weirdos are the fans who treat Offline TV like they know the people or that the people in it give 2 shits about them.

Videos like these feel like the last bastion of the old school league youtubers It's a bit over edited for my taste, but at least it isn't endless "OMG NEW CHAMP BUILD BROKEN MY GRANDPARENTS DIVORCED ME FOR THIS GAME" trash and stream highlights every other big youtuber has switched to.

Too many people. I know almost a dozen of my friends who are either in the game industry or are big gamers who pick one up for a birthday gift or present to themselves every now and then. Then of course there are the crazies who buy every single one ever and store them like priceless works of art.

Waiting 14 years is really smart, by then his fans will be almost old enough to vote.

Ping spikes and download speeds slows consistently at the 7pm sharp then returning to normal ping and speeds after 11pm every day for the last week. by OBLIVIATER in HomeNetworking

Nope, just good ole cable. Never had issues like this before now so I doubt its some sort of congestion issue unless 100 neighbors moved in and started power using overnight. Its so regular too, so I don't think its that.

No, I can see all the devices on my network and there are no unknown ones on the network. I appreciate the response but I don't think its a security issue or someone sapping our internet.

I don't have a street light near my cable box, but it could be a similar issue? How did you go about troubleshooting it? Also did it happen all of a sudden or did it crop up from time to time
