    I didn't have a daughter until very recently....but I was a teenager watching All That in the 90s...which is when Amanda Bynes became part of my life. Even as a 30 something, I'm a fan....such great movies like She's The Man (what's not enjoy about a modern take on Shakespeare's 12th Night).
    However, I avoid celebrity news, so I don't even know what crazy she got into, just that she did.

    The other references I have no clue about. I avoid the Twitters.

    I have no idea who the Chandler person is. I assumed she was just a Twitter rando but evidently not.

    Congratulations on your daughter!

    You can now look forward to:

    + 6 years of gross soul-destroying chores and worry
    + then 6-8 years of her being the coolest thing on Earth
    + then 2-4 years of her being the worst thing in the Universe
    + then a fellow human, FWIW

    She's a rando I saw elsewhere and followed because she's completely cray-cray:

    Colt Manufacturing is suspending production of AR-15's to civilians. Will focus on production for police/military contracts only.

    Assault weapons ban sunset in 2005. There's enough of them in circulation at this point, and a growing stigma around owning them, that I'll bet curiosity among the average gun owner has waned and demand has gotten low.

    Not that I've noticed among my co-workers who seem to be the sweet spot in the consumer base. I never knew growing in my leafy NY suburb that someday I would interact daily with dozens of guys who owned multiple AR-15s.

    I agreed to that... some of the video games are extremely dangerous but there are some that also help us to ease our stress from work, school and even in a relationship.

    So Beto made his comment about taking AR-15s away, what, a month ago? Gun nuts are still fixated on it.

    We have tD, you have Shelia Jackson Lee.

    “I held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving. And the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street.” - Rep. @JacksonLeeTX18

    To be fair you do not need a 50 cal bullet unless you are a soldier. They should not be available to the gen pop unless they live somewhere where there are bears and I don't mean the DuPont Circle kind.

    I don't see why that is a problem. What legal purpose do you have for a .50 cal? And don't tell me they're just used for skeet shooting.

    Yup, but I believe an AR-15 fires a .223.

    Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
