Re: “Woolfe Street developers reach agreement with city on workforce housing fee

So if you build housing you must let some of it go at a loss? That's much better than allowing the creation of population density which lowers the price of housing for everyone with the side benefit of making mass transit efficient and affordable. We don't need no stinking housing, we just need the limited housing we have to cost renters less than it costs the owners because despite the well known fact that not allowing housing increases the cost of housing we can do it better than 100% of the world can, kind of like communism has failed everywhere because they didn't do it wrong, but we can do it right.

Re: “The conversation we should all be having about gun violence and firearm safety

"Shootings occur almost every weekend in parking lots outside bars"
But name one of those shootings that were committed by a CCW holder. Almost every time that occurs it's someone who already has been stripped of his right to bear arms due to a previous crime.

"The recent shootings or guns discovered in the hands of school children is another serious accident waiting to happen."
They were breaking the law already, and a law requiring that guns be locked in a gun safe doesn't mean the parents will actually do that. The best such a law can do is result in the parents being incarcerated, probably leaving other children with parents in jail.

Re: “The conversation we should all be having about gun violence and firearm safety

I agree with Jshicke, this was unusually well balanced, something you don't seem to get from news media today. My opinion is that rights are not privileges, the only qualification needed for a federally enumerated right is citizenship in these United States of America just as the only qualification for a state enumerated right is citizenship in that state. Once you've said you must be this age or this sex or have this license or training it's no longer a right, it's a privilege. If the people of this nation want to remove the federally granted right to bear arms there is a process laid out in the constitution allowing them to do so, repeal the second amendment, which will allow the states to decide individually if they want to create a right or privilege to bear arms or outlaw them entirely. If we allow the second amendment to be turned into a privilege outside of that process then every other right we have is subject to the same denigration and we'll soon have no rights at all.

Re: “Is pollution poisoning Charleston's African-American and low-income communities?

African American and low income communities? So you're saying that the communities where wealthy African Americans live are intentionally polluted somehow in order to pick them out? If I live in a nice part of town and have an African American living next door does this put me at risk, or are they able to target just his house and leave mine unaffected?

Or is the truth more that low income communities tend to be in the worst, least desireable parts of town and often low income blacks tend to live there and you're doing a bit of race baiting?

Re: “How do we save our power grid from rising sea-levels?

Do you people realize that these scientists are talking about measuring levels of precision to the millimeter concerning global sea levels and to the tenth of a degree centigrade for global temperatures? Not only are they making such very precise measurements of global values that themselves are incredibly fluid, they've gone back to times when there were not even measuring devices and 'figured out' the exact temperatures and sea levels to the same level of precision. This is beyond ridiculous, it's ludicrous.
