Pandamonium!

Two pandas that were given as a gift from China to Taiwan have been appearing in public for the first time.

The pandas were given as a gift because the relationship between the two countries has been difficult for many years, but the friendship between the countries has improved lately.

When the pandas' names, Tuan Tuan and Yuan Yuan, are linked together, they mean “reunion” in Chinese.

The pair arrived at Taipei City Zoo in December, but was kept in quarantine for a month.


Tens of thousands of visitors are expected to see them during the Chinese New Year celebrations.

It's against the second amendment, and a terrible thing to do overall for reasons that probably don't need explaining.However, we do need to monitor who we do and don't give weapons to. As you said, it's not the gun that harms others. It's the people. You're talking about the person who threatened to cut off the funding of an entire state of our nation based on his interpretation of the constitution. The person who has bypassed the Republican controlled Congress on issues of immigration and healthcare. While Obama couldn't mess with the second amendment, he has the authority to pass heavy restrictions based on interpretation.  Honestly, this is why I support ratifying the second amendment. The term " well regulated militia" is far too narrow in this age of bureaucracy.

If someone has the intention of hurting people, do you think that gun laws will stop them? You said it yourself, they already intend to break the law by hurting others.
