    More importantly, I think this study is vaguely bogus. In any threat situation, you always look for the "different" thing - whatever that might be. It might be sex, race, size, or whatever. Untrained people are going to fall back on instinct, not training, to evaluate a threat. If it's different, it's a potential threat.

    This doesn't say anything about Aussie racism but it says something about bad study design.

    That picture shows some spineless and weak shit - that will never happen in my country.:mad:
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    Exactly. It's a computer game. One might as well cite chess players as racists because they sit at a polarized board and manipulate black pieces against white ones or vice versa.

    You could have done some research and filed an Amicus Brief in support of Heller's position.

    The principal that applies in DC would apply nationwide. The SCOTUS ruling reinforces Second Amendment rights throughout the United States, not just DC. Chicago has a similar ban which is now unconstitutional.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
