Vista Outdoor Sells Off Firearms Brands for $170 Million
@hamncheez: I thought you were serious but seeing as you brought up US independence with a straight face I now see you're a pro-league troll. I'm lucky I could type this because my eyes rolled so far into the back of my head. Good night.

Vista Outdoor Sells Off Firearms Brands for $170 Million
@hamncheez: First off, don't quote me as saying "harms society" when I didn't say that. Secondly, show me the data because what you are saying does not compute. The per 100,000 people intentional homicide rate (total, not gun) in the UK is 1.2, in the US it is 5.35, over 4 times that of the UK. Riddle me that Mr "criminals just substituted one weapon/tool for another". And guns account for a large proportion of those US homicides. You are taking all of this gun control way out of context. It is about an effective control of guns and firearm ownership for the safety of others. It's not about making all guns illegal. I'm not sure what you want me to say about China mate, many countries have committed atrocities against their own people and having a rifle in the house isn't going to stop that happening, but I get that it might feel better that you tried to stand up against it. I could flip it around and say that the constant massacres of innocent children by insane gun owners alone is enough to show the need for effective gun regulation, and low and behold if guns are regulated, then you can still own one to defend yourself from the government.

@hamncheez: This is so factually incorrect that it hurts. The NZ gun laws have only been in place for a couple of months! Also, there are many examples of gun control laws decreasing gun-related crimes, look at Australia, UK, etc. And often these have followed tragic massacres. The basis of your argument is "I am a good person therefore laws should not exist" that's what it is if you strip it back and take it to it's logical conclusions. Read Steven Pinker, the reason people are safe and violence is decreasing is because laws exist. The US is married to guns for some reason, and it's so deeply entrenched in the culture that people espouse these insane arguments like "Me owning a shaped piece of metal harms no one", "it's just a tool for a job" and "if it was legal to kill someone then most places wont see an increase". My friend, people would put a bullet in your head for minor road rage that scenario... Imagine pairing that with the US laws on firing someone without cause.. "You're fired" bang, dead. Especially if your livelihood depends on it. I also find it funny that using an argument like 'non-aggression principle' for an item that was literally only designed to kill things aggressively, is insane. Being gay is not the same as owning a gun and I can't believe I have to type that.

Interview: Martin Maes - "I'm Not Guilty... I Just Made a Stupid Mistake"
@Rubberelli: Well that’s a leap I absolutely did not make. You’ve got a guy who has never tested positive previously. The UCI recognised that he had accidentally taken masking substance, had acknowledged it was accidental and that it was purely for medical reasons. I might also add there were photos shared of him being stitched up. To add to all that it was not a substance that gave him a competitive advantage. What I am saying is this seems to be a cut and dry case and that he shouldn’t be slapped with infractions when what he was found with wasn’t even performance enhancing in the first place. It’s like being slapped with a speeding ticket for rushing to hospital with someone dying in the back of your car. Of course mask substances should be banned but that doesn’t mean you can’t treat things case by case and with some common sense. This comment section is on another planet sometimes. This isn’t team sky we’re talking about, with medics on speed dial and drugs available left right and centre; it’s a bunch of endurbros just trying to make a living.

"Could more be done to educate riders and prevent the use of Performance Enhancing Drugs?" It wasn't performance enhancing though? Seems unfair in this case. I have had severe cellulitis in a leg wound and it is excruciating and potentially deadly. How can the UCI recognise this fact, then the fact it isn't performance enhancing and still dish out a ban and reputation damage?
