@weeterbos "Roustabout66, by you I mean all gunowners. And of course it isn't a lie."

I just told you I have NEVER HAD a gun stolen and yet you repeat your lie. What is it with people from these insignificant little countries who think they can tell Americans how to run their lives. Perhaps if the Dutch had guns and a backbone they could have actually fought the Germans instead of surrendering even faster than the French did...pathetic. Good thing for your little country that gun-toting Americans saved your butt.

The bottom line is the Constitution gives Americans the right to keep and bear arms and the Supreme Court has verified that individual right. Nobody from some insignificant little country or some social justice warrior in his parent's basement is going to change that...get over it.

@weeterbos "Yeah, they have guns because you gave them." That is a lie. I have never given a gun to anyone. I have never had a gun stolen. Why don't you try making an argument without lying. You might find the change refreshing.

@weertobos "You forgot a bit.
Gangs who use guns, previously owned by law abiding Americans who are trained and undergo background checks."

You do realize you just verified my argument for the right of self protection...right? Criminals will always have guns, that is an old cliche but true. Look at France where their citizens are helpless to defend themselves. What happened when terrorists got guns in a gun-free country and went to a concert?

@tbcass It depends on where you check the drug laws how effective they are. Check any Muslim country or China and how is the drug usage there?

Who says I only have a Glock and no shotgun? I have several weapons. A shotgun is great for the home....not so good for the shopping mall or restaurant.

@d500 Do I "want" firearms so badly that it is acceptable for others to needlessly die so you can keep yours?" Let's apply that same argument to cars and drugs since both kill many more people every year than guns. Are the "recreational" drug users willing to get serious on stopping drugs to save others? Are you willing to give up your car/truck to save others?

By the way, the BIG difference is my guns are protected by the Constitution...cars and drugs are not.

@boinkphoto If you TRULY are far more afraid of law abiding Americans who are trained and undergo background checks owning a firearm than terrorists who we KNOW are trying to get dirty bombs and chemical weapons and would kill every one of us if they could then you have a serious problem with reality in my opinion being completely honest and not even sarcastic.

In America about half of gun deaths are suicides. They would find another way without a gun. About half of the remaining deaths are gang related. Good luck with that one. There are many many instances EVERY month where law abiding armed citizens stop crimes. The NRA magazine lists them with links every month as do several websites but the mainstream media will never report that.

Many many more people die every year from drugs than guns, so maybe we should take a second look at the weakened drug laws happening around the country if we want to save lives.

Josh152: See this is the problem. Two sets of rules. If a civilian accidentally shot someone who only had a camera, they are going be arrested on the spot, go to prison most likely and lose the civil suit as a forgone concussion. If a Cop who is supposedly highly trained and is trusted with a higher authority level than the general public does it, it's considered Just an honest mistake and he goes back to work before the investigation is even over. SMH.

Please show a link showing proof Zimmerman started all this.

He was a legitimate neighborhood watch, had called police several times before for strangers roaming the neighborhood looking into windows, several homes had suffered thefts in recent days and he had a carry permit. There is NO evidence he continued to follow Martin for any significant period of time after the police told him to stop. He said OK and told the police to call when they got there and he would lead them to where he saw him last....unless you do not believe the police call record either. Admit it, the facts do not match your image of what happened, but the facts are the facts. That is why Obama's "Justice Dept." could not pin anything on him.

It is not only Zimmerman's version unless you do not believe in photographic evidence and hospital reports. If there were ANY way to pin something on Zimmerman, Obama's "Justice Dept." would have done so.

There are other false statements you have made about this so I get the opinion you do not really know much about this case.

@MikeFairbanks Zimmerman got lucky....with the Obama "Justice Dept." hounding him for 3 years and finding nothing. What a fascinating theory. If your theory is true Zimmerman should write a book on how to make Holder look like a fool.

Do you have a link for the study showing that " Everyone knows he was a pretentious and arrogant fool for what he did."

@borax I think you have the facts wrong in the Zimmerman case. Martin was on top of Zimmerman pounding his head into the pavement. I do not think having your head pounded on the sidewalk is a "subjective" feeling. Even the Obama "Justice" department could not pin anything on Zimmerman as hard as they tried.

"For three years, the U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ) investigated Zimmerman on civil rights charges. In February 2015, the DOJ concluded there was not sufficient evidence that Zimmerman intentionally violated the civil rights of Martin, saying the Zimmerman case did not meet the "high standard" for a federal hate crime prosecution."

Thomartin: So!
Maybe this will answer many questions/remarks on the situation ! ( And maybe dpr should have included it in the article)

https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/12/starving-polar-bear-video-climate-change-spd/

They indeed point out:
- The crew had no way to help the bear
- The crew didn't watch it die, dead is assumed
- Starvation is a conclusion from observations on the bear
- Population is steady, thanks to those in Russia
- Climate change is a threat to the bears living in regions dependant on seasonal ice
- Antarctic ice covers ~10^6 sq miles less than in 1979

"No biologist is saying all polar bears are in trouble right now," said Amstrup. "But those that are in trouble right now are giving us a signal for what's to come."

" Antarctic ice covers ~10^6 sq miles less than in 1979"
Not according to the BBC: Arctic ice 'grew by a third' after cool summer in 2013

http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-33594654

Or: "And now it's global COOLING! Return of Arctic ice cap as it grows by 29% in a year"
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2415191/And-global-COOLING-Return-Arctic-ice-cap-grows-29-year.html

I believe there was a prediction that the arctic would be ice free by 2013 with most of New York and Miami under water...what happened?

PWPhotography: Well, when 33x44 MF sensors are reaching to 100~150mp, FF sensors will get to 60~80mp and likely will show up first in A9r. Sony is leading miles away from competitors in sensor R&D and manufacturing.

"bigger but not sharper" Did you even look at the file sizes? Sony 82 MB Raw Canon 63.9 MB Raw.

To my eyes in the samples I linked the Canon is sharper with a smaller file size.

Here is another where I think the Canon is sharper, plus your claim that the Canon files are larger does not seem to be true if you look at the file sizes on the chart.

I did not mention DXO since they do not reveal their methods in my opinion and I believe my own eyes instead of what someone tells me to believe. I said in some places on this site. I saw many such places where the Canon was sharper but here is one for instance:
https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr13_0=sony_a7riii&attr13_1=canon_eos5dsr&attr13_2=phaseone_xf100mp&attr13_3=pentax_k1&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=raw&attr15_3=raw&attr16_0=100&attr16_1=100&attr16_2=100&attr16_3=100&attr126_0=2&attr126_1=2&attr126_2=2&attr126_3=2&attr171_0=1&attr171_1=1&attr171_2=1&attr171_3=1&normalization=full&widget=565&x=1.032991043062295&y=-1.1136542855136315

No matter how it is made it is still 50 MP and seems to have an advantage in sharpness in the comparison charts on this site. Heck there are even places where it seems sharper than the new Sony shift sensor.

Why do you say Sony will be first to 60-80MP?

Canon already has 50MP so not much further to go.

Dan Monroe: Is Canon still living in 2010? There is no excuse for not having 4K video capability in 2017.

All of my friends and family have 4k TVs these days. 1080p videos just doesn't look good on a 4K TV. (not as bad as playing 480p video on 1080p TV, obviously) Even my 96-year-old grandma wanted to know why the videos I sent her looked "fuzzy" when she played it on her 4K TV.(a "cheap $900 one that I bought her earlier this year)

Yeah, Blu-ray quality looks "fuzzy". HMMM.

Just curious, how did she play the emailed videos on her 4K TV?

vadims: Meanwhile, Canon reported increases in compact camera sales in their GX line of cameras during Q3. Just sayin'.

Yes, Canon reported a 31.1% increase in profits and Nikon a 7% increase in projected profits. Notice these are PROFITS. Canon and Nikon are the ONLY camera companies to show a consistent profit in their camera lines. Maybe decisions such as this and Canon's product mix are the reason.
