You think that only happens in California? How cute.
I prefer peace, but if trouble must come, let it be in my time that my children may know peace.

Man don’t try to own a gun in California. They make it complicated.
That's exactly their goal. The hope is by catching up gun owners in the insane patchwork of laws and growing list of onerous gun and ammunition restrictions, the average gun owner will be dissuaded from wanting to own guns. Of course organizations like the California Rifle and Pistol Association, Firearms Policy Coalition and the avid membership of Cal Guns continues to frustrate them.

If you can ban little hotel shampoo bottles, can guns be far away?

Pooping on streets in SF worse.

Pooping on the ground outside is a tool used to measure the relative level of civilization around the world by people whose job it is to keep track of things like that.

BTW Laguna, California votes to not remove the American Flag from its police cars.

San Diego church goers tackle a woman brandishing a baby and a handgun saying she was going to blow the church up. Gun was unloaded and she had no explosives.

My very first computer was a Commador Vic 20. I bought an optional cassette drive that plugged into the computer so I could save the programs I wrote (in Basic). It used standard audio cassettes. That was sometime in the early to mid 1980's.
I had a Commodore 64. It was less useful than my TI programmable calculator that used the little tape strip memory cards for your applications routines.
I remember when the TI calculator came out. I think they sold for about $35. We bought several at work for our lab and they saved me a lot of work.
We used a lot of different solvents in the lab and I remember a couple times the plastic keys would melt and the card reader got stuck. At $35 each it wasn't
a big deal. That was when the HP-35 calculator cost around $300.

The first battery powered calculator that was moderately priced that I remember was a TI. It was $150. But it did square root. The HP-35 was a dream. I still have mine. Batteries are gone. But what a marvel it was.

My first computer was a Sinclair. 36x48 graphics I think, people would actually write games for it.
I think the price dropped to $150 and I snapped it up. Saving programs on the cassette was hit or miss. If it missed you had to type it line by line all over again. But it was a real computer!!!

My memory is faulty. I was referring to the TI-59 which cost about $300 in 1977. I was thinking of the lower priced TI-30 which came out a few years later. :tiphat:

When Johnny Rotten (sex pistols) tells you LA is rotten, maybe you should pay attention.

'No, I'm a bloke that's worked hard for his money and I expect to be able to use my own front door,' he firmly stated.
Gee Johnny, I guess 'anarchy' ain't so cool after all when you're a senior (oh god, he's MY age) and it's happening on YOUR front door. Only reason this isn't more hilarious is because it's also sad........and by the way, your statement sounds supiciously like CAPITALISM.....
