I think they will be just as effective.

Speaking of what I want to believe.

I want to believe this is fake news (and considering the source it might be). But I wish I could be sure. :|

Swedish mother dating an Afghan refugee REFUSED to report him to police when he abused her 12-year-old daughter
Daily Fail
Swedish woman, 45, was dating teenage Afghan migrant living in her care
Abdul Dostmohammadi, now 19, sexually molested her 12-year-old daughter
Mother refused to report as she was worried he'd be sent to Afghanistan
It occurs to me that for an Afghan 19 year old (or a 19 year old in every culture for most of history until recently) 12 years old is only a little bit young for a bride and screwing the 45 year old is bizarre.

This scenario happens with all kinds of low income participants. Mom gets boyfriend, boyfriend molests a child, mom doesn't want to lose boyfriend, bottomless sadness ensues.

Given the track record of 25 year old refugees claiming they're children to get in the country I'd bet he's much older.

Excellent point.

But the real story is still the woman's reaction, not the crime committed by the Afghan guy.

Googling brings up mostly dubious right-wing/conspiracy sites. So fake or we have to posit some sjw omertà.

Otherwise Gram's analysis is of course spot on. :(

Rash of articles tonight about SEAT FLIPPED AGAINST DRUMPFFF..

EVIDENCE OF THE GIANT BLUE WAVE!!!!!!

Jesus Christ these people are trying to propagandize this shit from the top.

Whatsisface (Democrat in Missouri) shares an important characteristic with Trump.

He isn't Hillary.

Local politics is local politics. And besides that the guy who won would literally be branded a Nazi fascist by the Democrat base on the coasts.

You deplorables in the middle of the country are just so backwards and ignorant. You need a coastal elite to tell you what to think. Someone like Donald Trump who who lives near an ocean.

Former Hillary donor and presumed Democrat until he ran as a Republican.

Trump ran as the anti-Hillary. No one as LIBBERUL as he could have got the Republican nomination any other way.

"In Florida, an AR-15 Is Easier to Buy Than a Handgun" --NYT today

So, Florida has a 3 day waiting period to buy a handgun. To own a class 3 firearm, you have to follow class 3 instructions. The headline intent is obvious, make it seem like people can just buy AR15s in Florida.

So you open the article and there is all the framing, "AR15-Style" , assault weapon, etc etc. It's easier to buy a semi-automatic rifle than a handgun in Florida. This revelation is not 'news'. They wanted tougher restrictions on buying handguns vs rifles.

FakeNews. Deliberately trying to mislead.

I've got to agree with that. The whole point of making handguns harder to get was because they were concealable.
