"To get a gun in Japan, first, you have to attend an all-day class and pass a written test, which are held only once per month. You also must take and pass a shooting range class. Then, head over to a hospital for a mental test and drug test (Japan is unusual in that potential gun owners must affirmatively prove their mental fitness), which you’ll file with the police. Finally, pass a rigorous background check for any criminal record or association with criminal or extremist groups, and you will be the proud new owner of your shotgun or air rifle. Just don’t forget to provide police with documentation on the specific location of the gun in your home, as well as the ammo, both of which must be locked and stored separately. And remember to have the police inspect the gun once per year and to re-take the class and exam every three years."

see, that’s gun control
you don’t take away a person’s right to bear arms
you take away a person’s ability to abuse their arms

"The idea that that’s what’s driving this strikes me as completely wrong. I mean, first of all, there’s a lot of people grateful that it’s getting covered. Second of all, people forget this- these protests started within minutes and hours of the death of Mike Brown and they started on the street on which Mike Brown was shot and killed, among the whole neighborhood. I talked to an owner of a barber shop on West Florissant who told me; it got to him real quick and before he knew it, everyone had left out the barber shop to go down there, okay? So there was no media at that point. There was no cameras down there. There were people rushing down to the scene. There was a very heated standoff with police as Michael Brown’s body was on the street. That was not people trying to get on camera."

"I’ve had a dozen people tell me, maybe more, ‘What would have happened if Michael Brown had shot and killed Darren Wilson? Do you think he would be free right now? Do you think he would not have been charged by now?’ People just see this manifest double-standard in front of them that’s coming at the long line of a whole bunch of grievances that have built up over time because of the dynamics of Ferguson and frankly, the dynamics of race in America more broadly."
