1. Let me know if you have something more recent than this:

March 23, 2017 "President Donald Trump announced on Friday that his Justice Department would proceed with plans to ban bump stocks, the firearms accessories the Las Vegas gunman used during his October attack on a country music festival that left 58 dead and hundreds more injured.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions followed Trump’s announcement on Friday with a statement saying he’d filed a proposed rules change that would “effectively” make the devices illegal under federal law.

The moves mark Trump’s latest step toward unilaterally outlawing bump stocks and other similar accessories, which he’s repeatedly vowed to do in the aftermath of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, last month.

The president’s announcement came a day before the highly anticipated March for Our Lives, a well-attended series of rallies against gun violence on Saturday that was organized by student survivors of the Parkland shooting.

Although Trump didn’t personally address the movement from his golf resort in Mar-a-Lago, where he spent the weekend, his decision to roll out new action on bump stocks may have been an effort to send a message that he is doing something on guns ? and in particular, a modest measure that receives broad bipartisan support. "

2. Safety measures on cars are designed for accidents, not purposeful action. There are a myriad of different ways criminals can get around gun control measures (been to Chicago lately). Historically, gun deaths have not dropped due to higher gun regulations when you use the proper multi-varied analysis. Personally, I don't think there should be regulation on any weapon that can kill less than thousands of people at a time, but to be fair, I'm relying on statistics, not those scary moving pictures on TV.

3. Again, you make some reasonable points here, but all of these are predicated on the government doing their job..........which they haven't.........time and time again. Not to mention the tiny number of shootings that would have been prevented by these measures. You wrap yourself in this binary belief system where mental health is a yes/no issue; that's not even close to reality.

4. "When you have children and victims pleading for the government to do something, and nothing happens"

Again, why are you asking the most incompetent/negligent organization to solve your problem? None of the statistics on these issues back up your claim, and yet you continue to believe it.

The reason those kids are on TV, is because it hooks people like you, and makes you believe that there is a problem with school shootings, but the statistics (again) don't support this.

I've been more than fair with my time here, but you don't seem to want a debate,  just an argument. If you want to present some facts (with references), then I'll be happy to oblige you further. I'm looking for a debate to move the needle, not just snarky back-and-forth, so this will be best for both of us.

Best of luck to you - Cheers! :)

I've been playing and continuously testing and trying different approaches at playing a "calculated random game". The pattern revamp method is an example. Random will not produce patterns of three that repeat but it can. The repeat may be once or twice and extremely rare will be three or more times. That's using radome against itself. Bets are selectively reduced in the betting area to bolster wins when they occur.

Take red and black and divide the table into high and low. If a low back hits, play all low black and the same for red; and the same for the high segment.

You can use the law of thirds to select what colour to play in the segments. Fallen numbers have a good chance of repeating.

Just my thoughts as a contribution to the subject. Hoper this inspires thought on the subject.
1.  Ok, he actually did backtrack.  Just a few days later after the White House released their proposals and nothing he said was included.  They buckled under political pressure.  He actually did backtrack because he said there would be no political support

2.  Again, flawed argument.  Safety measures on cars do not eliminate all fatalities, but the deaths per car on the reduced have greatly been reduced over time due to these regulations.  This is a fact.  Same logic goes for gun regulations.  Just because gun regulation will not eliminate all gun deaths, they will go down due to regulation.  Using your flawed logic, there should not be regulation on anything.  Is it ok to own grenade launchers, flame throwers, 50 cal machine guns?  Using your argument, it would be

It's not that I'm saying government is the solution to everything.  This gun debate is about what most American people want....and it's mostly common sense things.  Like, what's the point of having background checks on store purchases of firearms and not require on private sales?  Universal background checks are supported by 95% of the country...this should be a no brainer.  And it shouldn't be so easy for someone like this teenager that murdered the school kids to legally purchase a weapon like that, especially after the law was called on him 39 times in a short period of time...again, common sense.  And nobody needs 100 round drum magazines or armor piercing bullets for hunting or home protection...again, common sense. 

My point is there are obvious, common sense regulations that should happen, that a majority of Americans want.  Most of these protestors believe in the right to bear arms, but there should be sensible regulation.  When you have children and victims pleading for the government to do something, and nothing happens...not even the most common sense stuff...well, you're gonna see alot of these guys in Congress lose their job in the next midterm elections.  Probably Trump too

Same format:

1. Your claim that he "seemed to backtrack his own words" is just too vague. This is why you never actually involve yourself in any rational debate, because you refuse to use any precision with your language. Just imagine what "seemed to backtrack on his words" actually means if everyone has their own interpretation (which they do). This is an act of active confusion. At least have the courage of your convictions, and post some quotes (in context).

2. I used the truck as an example because you claimed that the tool is the problem, which it's not. Go ahead, and pass your "common sense" gun control reform, and watch people start driving trucks into crowds.........then what. This is what you don't seem to understand. Right now you have at least some power to control the tool, but what happens after you give that up for something you can't control. In fact, want to see into the future, check out the UK. They banned guns completely, and so people started using now their banning knives. Shocker!

The most comical part of the gun control debate is that anyone would be naive enough to believe that the government is going to solve this problem. It's almost like they weren't watching the government's wild incompetence over just the last year alone. We had the most lethal mass shooting in history, and this government that you have so much faith in, went silent...............nothing. And you want to give them more power. Seems like some people are just a glutton for punishment.

3. Not sure why you're giving me your opinion on his business acumen.

4. Great!

5. I disagree with some of this, but it's just opinion, so no problem here.

 I have tested some random against random selections.
 What scares me is that someone would use a progression that goes all in like Marty.

 I like the idea where you use a ladder that goes up and down where you have moments to quit without winning.
 Where you can accept small loses or break even, and play for another day without force you self to bust.

 Also like the idea using a higher base bet, so when winning half what you risk you can operate with casino money.
And if you win again twice you can us Up & Pull positive progression.
During this process you can not lose everything back and keeping some profits.

In theory, with random results we can expect anything.  Red can show up 1000 times in a row.  But in testing, you can normally find limits, or worse case scenario.  For example, Red may go missing for up to 35 spins if tested over millions of spins.

So, if you stick with the same even bet, like red, you can expect a bad run of up to 35 spins which is probably once in a lifetime event that you'll probably never see.

But what if you change your bets randomly?  What if you play the last 18 numbers?  What if you play 18 random numbers every spin?  Will this create better results?

I know random selection will not give an edge.  All I want to do is reduce variance.  Has anyone tested this before?  If so, how were the results?

Zero is a bitch, i got two of them this morning playing session and two series of four, but one common thing is reversals so i just ride out the storm and break even.
This was at 5Dimes.

I would not recommend the method because you have more recovery sessions then winning sessions.
And is not fun having -17 units just to break even and when you get a reversal once or twice at most you should quit. A third shot is not worth it, my opinion.

And that ends this episode of'll find Peanut at the bar in the casino, not at the table. He hasn't mastered AP and I doubt he has the brains for it. Also slow reaction time from the bottle. Hahaha.

I check in on my phone periodically. I like the forum and there are normally very interesting threads. Get with technology Peanut.

You insult women with your comments and you will get sorted out sooner or later.

I think the real problem is that you feel I've taken your sunshine away. You see the forum as your turf. Sorry for bursting your bubble old man.

You talk like you always win with roulette. You posted one system that has promise but is actually a disaster waiting to happen. Do you really make money; I mean enough to support the booze and hookers, never mind the decent life with the wife and kids?
