    There's a lot the US needs to do with their gun laws. Allowing civilians to own fully automatic weapons is pretty insane, and I'm somebody that would absolutely love to own any of the AK series rifles. Allowing civilians to get concealed carry licenses is pretty nuts too, IIRC pretty much only police and military can get that here in Canada. Even outside of concealed carry, you still can't really be out and about with a gun anyway here, you need to be transporting it to or from somewhere that you can legally use it, and have it locked up with the ammo locked up separately. Just implementing those few things in the states would do a lot for them IMO, if you further copy our laws, I think you'd see a huge drop-off in gun-related deaths after a while. It wouldn't even really take guns away from people outside of the full autos, but you don't really need to have those anyway, plus you can get semi auto variants that would be legal under new laws for a large portion of them too. Better gun laws won't really impact responsible gun owners all that much, but it would definitely hurt the irresponsible ones, and the outrage gun laws seem to cause in the states leads me to believe most of them are the irresponsible sort.

    I bought a Switch. Got the Splatoon 2 bundle and Arms, picked up Breath of the Wild the other day, and have Bayonetta 2 and Mario Kart on their way in the mail. I think this is the first time in a while I've felt like a Nintendo console is actually trying to keep up with modern tech, it uses a capacitive touch screen instead of the pressure sensitive crap they use on the DS/3DS/WiiU, and the overally build quality doesn't feel as cheap as I'm used to from Nintendo. I want to say I can't understand why they didn't pack the Joy-Con charging grip in with the console, but they gotta make sure they have a way to sell you more crap, so why give you something you can use to charge your Joy-Cons with as you can play when they can give you one that doesn't and charge $30 for one that does. At least the Joy-Cons on the grip are more comfortable and usable than I thought they would be, can save me from dropping a whopping $90 on a pro controller for the time being.
