    Thanks. I feel so provincial not knowing these things.

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    I was just wondering about Infotrack as well. Setting up for a hotter angle expecting the glass off? Whatever they're looking for, they paid dearly for it.

    Favourite Boat pic?

    Sean Trew is my favorite photographer as well. My fave is this one he took of Artemis (Andrews 53) at Round the County.

    No Swiftsure thread?

    Yeah. Now we can park up in a hole at Trial Island instead.

    This Non-Violent Stuff Will Get You Killed

    No, but it is the media's fault for characterizing something as so common that I should be afraid to stick my head out the front door for fear I'll be shot and killed. Do shootings happen? Of course they do. Is gun related violence a problem that should be addressed? Sure it is. Are Shootings "common"? I don't even know what you mean by that word. But I know I provide field service for dialysis centers and home patients in the greater Seattle area, including the worst places the area has to offer, and have for the past 22 years. Guess how many times I've been shot and killed? I realize Seattle is a pretty rural Podunk place, but you'd think by now I'd have been killed at least half a dozen times already, what with how common it is... The proliferation of firearms in this country is, in my opinion, a problem, especially as it facilitates access of same to non- law-abiding citizens. But the hand-wringing fear mongering is counterproductive and wrong headed besides. Cars kill more people a year than guns, shouldn't everyone be afraid of cars too?
  12. A tank? Seriously? If I was a cynic, I'd think this was all a publicity stunt.

    Police Perspective

    Meanwhile, in Ferguson... http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/ferguson-two-police-officers-shot-after-gunfire-directed-exactly-at-officers/ar-AA9Ga81 More gasoline on the fire. America is a tough place to be a cop these days. I hope the officers are going to be okay.

    Police Perspective

    I never once said that the problem was "too difficult to tackle", nor have I denied any facts you've stated, though I think your "murder-suicide" comments are specious. I also haven't held up any statistics to support my point of view. Agree or disagree, totally up to you...plus I agree with you: Statistics are too easy to bend to an individuals narrative. If I left the impression that I disagree that the proliferation of firearms is a problem, I apologize. It is clearly fuel on the fire. What I did say, and the only point I intended to make, is that as a country we are collectively focused on the wrong problem. Wave a magic wand and make every firearm on the planet vanish in a puff of smoke, I firmly believe that the US would STILL be a violent place.
