Re: “How unsecured vehicles contribute to Charleston's gun thefts

I'm confused. What does negligent behavior on the part of gun owners have to do with dictatorships and civil liberties? Are you saying gun owners should be allowed to be careless with their weapons? Please elaborate.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg lays out plan in response to Bi-Lo closing

I guarantee you theft was rampant and with groceries stores having a razor thin profit margin, it hurts bad. My uncle owns a bunch of grocery stores and he said when people don't put their buggies in the right place they get damaged and the store loses money and tries to pass it onto the customers. So next time you see a POS leave there buggy in a parking space, don't confront them because they are POS, just move the buggy into a cart slot.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg lays out plan in response to Bi-Lo closing

Having shopped at this location for several decades, the Piggly Wiggly was far superior to BiLo. It was clear BiLo had no intention of putting any love (or money) into this store. Sad, becasue as Piggly Wiggly, it had a lot of personality and character.

Ron would love to live under a dictatorship with no rights. Except he couldn't post stupid rebuttals online because there would be no free speech. Although I'm sure he would tow the party line if it meant to control of its citizens. He is pathetic

Re: “If you're against Trigger Warnings, just call them a heads-up

"When people say they "don't like trigger warnings" I have to ask what they don't like."

As far as I can tell, and I've asked the similar question to many different people, the fear is of something that doesn't exist. The impression that some give is that anything with a "trigger warning" means that the topic is therefore banned, that the professor would give a head's up "this contains violent descriptions of rape, and thus we'll just skip it," as opposed to "we're going to cover the Jerry Sandusky case next class, and that has a lot of detail about child sexual abuse and exploitation, just so there are no surprises." My Biology of Sex professor used to give the "head's up" before the class in which he showed the clinical videos of how people orgasm. But that was back in the 90s long before any of this "trigger warning" stuff, right?

Re: “How unsecured vehicles contribute to Charleston's gun thefts

The responsibility for the crime of theft lies with the thief. Always. However, if you keep a gun on your person or vehicle for your own safety, leaving it unsecured will absolutely degrade your safety by degrading the safety of society around you. Yes it is exhausting outwitting scumbags, but that's the hand we're dealt.

I'm sure theft at the location was a factor.

Re: “How unsecured vehicles contribute to Charleston's gun thefts

Isn't one of the gun owner narratives people own guns to prevent criminals from taking their property?

Re: “How unsecured vehicles contribute to Charleston's gun thefts

The victims of course (surely champions of personal responsibility and responsible gun ownership) being careless, and through their own pointless negligence, allowing tools designed to harm or kill to be taken from them in a way that caused no struggle or assault or battery or other trauma.

But yes, let's totally equate that to rape.

Exactly. They closed because they weren't making money. If they were profitable they would be open. They are a business not a soup kitchen.

Re: “How unsecured vehicles contribute to Charleston's gun thefts

How about if it's proven you say something false, you lose your right to free speech?

How about if it's proven your car was easily stolen because of your negligence, you lose the right to drive?

How about if it's proven you were easily raped because you were drunk and not able to clearly give or deny consent, you lose the right to accuse your rapist?

Or maybe we should blame the criminal and not the victim?

I would have guessed that CofC enrollment was much higher then vs now, only 619 more students?

Re: “But the more things change, the more they stay the same

Joe Riley spent years insisting on keeping jobs on the peninsula. The feds wanted to move the courthouse from downtown; Joe Riley did what it took to keep it at Four Corners. Ditto the School Board's Taj Mahal (city rented 1/3 of the space); ditto the hospital complex.
So he was wrong. Jobs without housing brought 10,000 professionals and their cars onto the peninsula every day.
The City Paper didn't see that coming any more than the rest of us did.

Re: “How unsecured vehicles contribute to Charleston's gun thefts

In other words,most of the guns were stealable because of the stupidity of the owner. How about tacking an intelligence test onto that carry-permit?

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg lays out plan in response to Bi-Lo closing

community concerns about food availability??? they closed because not enough people shopped there to support them even with a much higher-priced Harris Teeter a few blocks away, so apparently there was enough food available elsewhere. I smell political grandstanding.
