(Guns don’t kill people…) But Without Them, You Look Pretty Silly Yelling Bang!

After the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut petitions circulated calling for gun control, something the President acted upon quickly. Appointing Joe Biden, the President asked for some common sense gun control laws, and ways to stop violence, and the ability for criminals and mental patients to not have access to them. He asked for quick action, and now congress has begun having congressional hearings on the subject.

Wayne LaPierre once said, “Guns don’t kill people, people do.” It was an attempt to scare the general public into purchasing more firearms, equating violence with the person, rather than the tool. Unfortunately for all of us, it worked, and many people who had never been gun owners went out and purchased guns for the first time. There is a belief that guns are not the problem, and I hope in this article I can address that a little, give my thoughts as I have before, and try to address the real problems.

The New Standard: Some Tips and Tricks of Web Design

I recently started helping build a website for a friend of mine, and I thought it might be fun to talk a little bit about web design, HTML5 and CSS. As with all modern web browsers, HTML5 and CSS are the standard for markup language used on the web today. The best part about it is that with the new elements that have been added thing that you could only achieve with scripting before are pretty easily done just with using the language the way it is.

The Website I’ve been working on for reference. In case you are interested, check it out: The Hunter Supply Outlet
