My Bio
If you've ever wondered where the image I use as my icon on other systems comes from, here it is. My Official Team Photo from BattleBots Season 5.0 in 2002. This is "Team Mauser" and version 2 of the Superheavyweight "Strike Terror". My foot is right there on the weak spot that cost me the first fight against Pro-Am. Other than another 10 lbs and more gray in the beard, I still look pretty much the same.

Okay, so another artist I've had no grief at all with has blocked me out of the blue. I have to wonder if DA is doing a thing where if you delete a comment, it also blocks the person. I can see in my history that I commented on something of his, but
Huh! I just noticed that I've accumulated 300 watchers. Some of them may even have active accounts still! I was impressed by that until I looked at someone else in the 5-6K range.
It's out! https://amzn.to/2KKG0zn I have the third story in this Anthology! (Amazon Marketplace Link)

Thanks for the Llama!

Thanks for the llama!
Mr. robotics, I see. Let me start by asking why you think it would be safer if more people had guns? Do you really believe that good guys with guns can stop bad guys with guns?
11,000 murders with guns vs 2.5 million defensive uses of guns. (From the CDC) yeah, it happens a lot.
99% of mass shootings in the US since 1950 happened in places that disallowed guns. A notable lack of Good guys with guns is guaranteed in those locations.
51% of all murders take place in only 2% of counties. Those counties are all cities with strong gun control.
Murder has gone down by half since its peak in 1993. Gun ownership has skyrocketed in that same period. Likewise, Concealed carry laws have been significantly increased.

So, what's your counter to that?
Thank you so much for the Llama!!!
