    I wake up without even opening my eyes. I search until I find the cage of your arms and I bury myself. I can feel your sleepy smile in my hair as you lay there, content to hold me together until I gather the courage to face a new day. We don’t say a word. We don’t have to.
    We just lay there in our silent embrace, because that’s easy, and sometimes waking up can be really, really hard.

"If you regulate guns, what about [some useful but dangerous thing that’s heavily regulated but no one wants to ban]," is the #1 dumbest argument against gun control.
#2? “Criminals don’t care about gun laws,” a formulation that produces 31,700,000 hits on Google.
This is not how gun laws work.
If someone with a criminal record goes to a federally licensed gun dealer, it doesn’t matter whether he wants to follow the law or not. The dealer, who has a strong interest in following the law because his license to operate openly depends on compliance with regulations, will run the potential purchaser through NICS. Where he’ll get denied. As has happened 700,000 times. So he doesn’t get the gun even if he wants to do this bad thing.
But if someone with a criminal record chooses to buy a gun at a show or via a private seller, they can do so because there’s no requirement for the law-abiding citizen to run the buyer through NICS. That’s why they call it a loophole. 
If gun control proponents are successful in closing that loophole, people with records will have to steal guns (not that easy) or buy them on the illicit market, where they will be much more expensive because the route of gun manufacturer -> dealer -> “clean” buyer -> criminal will be that much more difficult to traverse. Making criminals pay more for weapons is good.

Staten Island man dies after NYPD cop puts him in chokehold — SEE THE VIDEO

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.

and people wonder why black people don’t trust or have any love for cops. they murdered this man. this black man. and for what? fucking cigarettes. yea, WE’RE the fucking problem.
 






WTF

Said it before and I’ll keep saying it: The NYPD is nothing more than a hate group given government legitimacy.
