That's sort of what I've come around to, as well. I wouldn't say outright no one can have any guns whatsoever, but making gun ownership a privilege that can be taken away makes sense. Something like the insurance idea makes sense, or laws that make the original buyer of the gun responsible for what happens to it, and that includes selling it second-hand (for instance in the case of the OP, assuming the shooter didn't own that gun or bought it second-hand, whoever did own it could be charged as an accessory). The latter part already does happen to an extent, but it could be taken a lot further.
Honestly, I'm not a fan of special "oktoberfest" beers, in general. If you want to get in the spirit of oktoberfest, drinking something like Paulaner is good, I suppose. As for pumpkin/spice beers, while some are excellent, they're usually not six-pack material, at least for me. I get tired of them pretty quickly.
Deschutes' Jubelale is fantastic, though. I usually don't get tired of that one.
Why not do both? Anyway, I doubt it. People bet on real sports all the time, anyway, and probably would a lot more if they allowed advertising for it like they do for daily fantasy.
I'm not sure exactly how daily fantasy is considered a "game of skill" while regular betting isn't, but I'm sure there won't be a distinction much longer. I think 5 states have already outlawed daily fantasy.
I heard an argument on TV today that was basically like: "Insider trading? Smaller guys feeling like they don't have a chance against sharks or whales? ... sounds just like the stock market to me, yet you don't see anyone clamoring to shut them down. If you feel like it's too risky of an investment, just don't play."
Both FanDuel and DraftKings (or any other firms that pop up from here on) should have safeguards to prevent their own employees from gaining inside information not available to the general public, as goldentongue said. I think there should also be much stricter limits on how many lineups can be submitted in contests that have large payouts (say, if the prize pool is greater than $50k, one person can't make more than 20 entries). That might cut down on at least a little on the sharks that are wagering six figures per day with hundreds of entries. Actually enforcing that second part would be next to impossible without auditing big money winners after the fact, though.
Personally, I never spend more than $10-$20 on it, and I pretty much only ever hope to make my money back, if anything. Though, as with any gambling, I don't treat it like an investment, I treat it like a purchase.
It's like, he almost had the right idea at one point, where it looks like he MIGHT be trying to smother it... but then, instead of keeping the [whatever it was] on top of the fire, he keeps lifting it up and flapping it down again, fanning the flames instead of smothering them.
