Refresh my memory...
Was that Kawi a two stroke or a four stroke? Kawi always tuned their stuff to the max right out of the box. It didn't do much for reliability (Honda as notorious for reliability at the expense of some of the excitement), but it sure made for a wild ride. Especially the H2 750 triple. AKA widowmakers and flexiflyers.
1969 Mach III H1 500cc. Two cycle. Sounded like a vacuum cleaner. Handled like a drunk squirrel. But faster than a raped ape! Very weak brakes added a nice touch to all that speed!

Bought it off the showroom floor in Japan. Had to ride it miles back to my ship on the wrong side of the road (Silly Japanese)through heavy traffic.

Sold it for more than I paid for it after having lots of fun with it.

Yes they are. They're committing an immoral crime.
Morals outside of shared morals such as theft, rape, murder, child abuse, etc. are personal in nature and derived by opinion such as religion therefore are not validated as being shared. With your claim gay marriage as being immoral is merely a reflection of your opinion and not fact.

Lilith, of course no one "needs" assault weapons. Likewise, I don't "need" a garage full of motorcycles, but I sure don't want some total stranger telling me I can't have them. And I really don't want some legislative body to make a criminal out of me with the stroke of a pen.
I know a number of sensible gun owners. I don't know a single homicidal lunatic that would go on a rampage killing innocent little kids. Not one. I'm going to go out on a limb here and make the claim that the vast majority of gun owners are decent sensible people. At least the ones who obtained their guns through legal channels.
So, in effect, you call for the punishment of the majority based upon the actions of an incredibly tiny minority. There are two problems with this mehod IMHO. You punish a large segment of the population who've not done anything. And you do nothing, not one teensy weensy little thing to prevent the next tragedy. Where there is a will there is a way. If he hadn't had a gun he could've sat in the parking lot and waited for school to let out and killed just as many kids with an SUV.
I was listening to the radio all day yesterday and there were some fairly not well thought out solutions offered up by the public. A new look a the second amendment was suggested. Putting a single armed security guard was suggested. Metal detectors at entrances were suggested. All reactionary BS that would only serve to incrase costs, hamper learning, and offer no net benefit.
I've already covered the second amendment approach.
One armed guard would have had to have been, by chance, in the first room the young man entered to have made a difference. Or you could argue for one in every class room. At a living wage that would kill budgets. Or would you want a minimum wage earner at the ready?
Metal detectors? Seriously! By the time every kid goes through successfully with any variety of items that aren't dangerous that set them off, the day would be over an it would be time to go home. OOOOO! Here's an argument for home schooling for everyone. Then we can turn into a nation of fat unsocialized poorly educated dough balls.
The bottom line is that people are going to commit horrible acts. As long as we walk the face of the earth, some of us are going to do some pretty awful stuff. You cannot legislate this out of the population. Just be thankful it is a tiny minority of us that are capable of such things.
gee amazing how the christians in this country do this exact thing to the lgbt community and deny them civil rights....

Clinton got a BJ........wow
The BJ wasn't the crime. Lying under oath was. I believe the POTUS is entitled to blow jobs. We should issue him them. Perk of the job.

And I also believe he should never lie under oath. Under any circumstances, especially about a hramless BJ.

What do you believe, Fruitloops?

Those sadistic tyrants say they are torturing me because I can see them. Or because they say I enjoy looking at them. Which is just another lame excuse to torture someone they don't like. If I shouldn't be allowed to see them, or if I am being tortured for looking at them, than perhaps they shouldn't exist.

Ah yes, the H1. I thought they sounded like someone rattling a can full of nails. The knowledge about frame geometry, tires, suspension, AND breaks wss outpaced by the ability to produce power. A friend let me have a go on a Suzuki 500 twin two smoke. I was accustom to four strokes at the time and as I took off on it my first thoughts were "What a pig slow POS." Then I got the engine up to speed and hit the sweet spot. Rice rocket was an appropriate term. I had to turn around and come back to find my clothes, hair, and fingernails.

Did I ever say any of that was okay? I didn't, because it isn't (see any post by "Sheesh" and "Winston Smith" as those are names I've used in here - no sock puppets, I just like to change things up from time to time). But, as I state, we'll not be able to legislate sanity into the population. Most forms of prohibition fail dismally (look at what happened with alcohol about 100 years ago and the current war on drugs FAIL X2).

I'm not quite certain why being sensible enough, as a card carrying liberal democrat, to understand the folly behind outlawing some guns, throwing away a large sum of cash in the form of armed school employees, and clogging the school entrance with metal detectors (another tax burden), earns me a bunch of negative judge it icons (I find this amusing, BTW). Instead of hitting the judge it button, why doesn't someone try to offer up valid argument in favor of what I've stated I oppose.

My points in brief are:

Outlawing specific weapons won't change a thing - nutjobs will find a handy method to kill in large numbers.

Putting armed guards in schools will cost large sums of money and be quite impractical. One guard would have to be in the right place at the right time. One in every room would bankrupt the school system.

Putting metal detectors at the entrance to the school building will significantly slow entry. I visit a young man in prison on a fairly regular basis. I get to see him about 1 to 1 1/2 hours after signing in.

Tell me where I am wrong about these methods.

I blasted all over Asia on mine. Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines in VN and The Philippines no speed limits, pesky laws or mad mothers! Well there were cops but a few bucks and they were happy. One even told me "no crime too big, no crime cost more than $50 US dollah!" So $2 or $3 for the cop and I was back on my way. I assume they'd ignore murder for $50! My worse crime was an overabundance of youthful enthusiasm.
