Oh I agree, I believe much of global warming can be addressed by shortening supply chains. However I think most of the food imports here consists of grains, corns and other crops rather than meats. Europe being relatively small to its population number there's not an excess of arable land.

I don't know all the details of import regulations wrt foodstuffs but I imagine these mostly intend to stop unsafe imports or excesses in other countries (child labour and such). Have no idea though. Just know that south american or american meats comprise a small number of what's consumed here. Also that we're not a fan of chlorinated chicken and such, which Trump is now trying to push on the UK cause of brexit.

He's right. It would've been more effective without the guns.

I think it's righteous. They would sacrifice everyone in that room (or at least hold them hostage with terroristic intimidation) if it meant their kindergartener got to put a square peg in a round hole in an official class rather than at home.

It actually might. They banned some outlandish shit to pad the list. I had big dreams of buying an 80 year old Russian anti-tank rifle. Me and the stormtroopers are really feeling this one.

She deserved to get arrested. Women can't be Stormtroopers. The Empire always respected strict gender norms.

That was a lotta bit of entertaining.

Not having a particular affinity for the AR-15, I wasn't aware of the existence of bullets beyond the 55-gr weight.  I was especially surprised to find the 65-gr bullet didn't overpenetrate.  I may have to reconsider my disdain for the .223/5.56mm caliber.

Still got a crappy SKS that's a maintenance hog. Satisfying to fire. Don't feel a particular desire to go open-carry protest at the state capitol, though.

Police in the United States are three times more likely to use force against leftwing protesters than rightwing protesters, according to new data from a non-profit that monitors political violence around the world.

In the past 10 months, US law enforcement agencies have used teargas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, and beatings at a much higher percentage at Black Lives Matter demonstrations than at pro-Trump or other rightwing protests.

Law enforcement officers were also more likely to use force against leftwing demonstrators, whether the protests remained peaceful or not.

The statistics, based on law enforcement responses to more than 13,000 protests across the United States since April 2020, show a clear disparity in how agencies have responded to the historic wave of Black Lives Matter protests against police violence, compared with demonstrations organized by Trump supporters.

Barack Obama highlighted an earlier version of these statistics on 8 January, arguing that they provided a “useful frame of reference” for understanding Americans’ outrage over the failure of Capitol police to stop a mob of thousands of white Trump supporters from invading and looting the Capitol on 6 January, a response that prompted renewed scrutiny of the level of violence and aggression American police forces use against Black versus white Americans.

The new statistics come from the US Crisis Monitor, a database created this spring by researchers at Princeton and the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project (ACLED), a nonprofit that has previously monitored civil unrest in the Middle East, Europe and Latin America.

The researchers found that the vast majority of the thousands of protests across the United States in the past year have been peaceful, and that most protests by both the left and the right were not met with any violent response by law enforcement.

Police used teargas, rubber bullets, beatings with batons and other force against demonstrators at 511 leftwing protests and 33 rightwing protests since April, according to updated data made public this week.

Hopefully cops will mull over Trump's completely empty care cup about them (as proven in recent days) and reconsider their support. But I somehow doubt it.

Considering there are COVID deniers who are using their last breath to deny COVID even exist, I am going to guess that a lot of police would have to get personally killed by Trump himself to shake their confidence in him.
