    a licence to kill

    you know, this would all be really quite easy to fix if some elements of america weren't so paranoid about the second amendment. we've already got a really good way of handling a potentially lethal instrument: cars!

    how do we do it? well you gotta have a driving license. to get that license you gotta pass a driving test. if you want to take your car out in public it's gotta have a license plate, which is in a national/state database, etc etc.

    all the components are there... just replace car with gun and voila. now THAT would be a well regulated militia, as per the actual text of the 2nd am.

    give them ALL the rights!

    Do you know what? I hope CL gets not only the silly exclusive rights, but ALL rights to the content I post on their site. Because that would make me a friggin millionaire!

    Step 1: Log in and make a long post about myself containing the most outrageous slander EVER written (naturally containing geographical data and "category").

    Step 2: Sue craigslist for defamation of character.

    Step 3: Profit!

    Check mate. I'll take cash.
