    One thing to remember about the second amendment is that it was written when all firearms needed to be reloaded between shots, which took ages. These were not weapons an individual would ever be able to use to shoot up an entire club. It's not obvious that the founding fathers would have written it the same way, or at all, had their times had weapons that can fire 20 bullets a minute instead of one.

    There is an Island of where I live (Perth, Australia) with a similar ban, no Private cars. Rottnest. if you know it at all, its probably from quokka selfies. There is ambulance, police, ranger, delivery vans, n a couple of buses. n they are electric where possible. Its *really* nice, such a chill vibe. also very few private residences, N they are all attached to a job position, and only those deemed essential 24hr jobs. Doctor, Sergent, Ranger, Baker, Bloke Who Runs The Sewerage Plant. all the 'service' jobs are from the mainland. and there are a couple hundred cottages n tent sites, I think for about 5,000 people. everyone is on holiday and relaxed. easily one of my favorite places. although it does adhere to the 'everything in australia is trying to kill you' philosophy if you treck off the main loop road. most everything is spiky, poisonous or insanely flammable. in various combinations. spent alot of summer holidays out there as a kid just exploring old gun emplacements (was a WW1 fortification, there are some that are all touristified, but MANY resumed by the bush) or trying to hunt pheasant with a spear (only wild population i know in Aus). I really want to try pheasant. its a hard to not want to bring a shotgun over, but the fines for a firearm in an A class reserve are redonkulous. also where I got my second worst jelly fish sting (dont touch them with your face. and even more important Dont Get Them Up Your Shorts. DONT. its a bad time). also the only place ive seen blue ring octopus or Portuguese man-o-war. Yep, its a lovely place ^.^ did I mention Quokkas? Soccerball sized wallaby things that are the chillest dudes ever. leave your backdoor open, they'll just wander in "hey guy, got some strawberrys? those things are great! especially with champagne! bit of cucumber, n some gin to swizzle it in? ooh watermelon?!? WHAT, wheres the vodka?". little fiends. cute tho.

    You didn't mentioned in this video that the Chief of Police and the Fire chief has each their own cars. Last time I heard there is 400 people live on this island yearlong. So how these go shopping if so desired? They drive over the island on this highway or not across the water on a ice bridge to St. Ignace or fly to there from a small airstrip. As of this past summer 2020 parts of this highway is closed due erosion on the shoreline where is highway is at.

    Christopher Reeve drives up to the Grand Hotel in a sporty little convertible in the movie, not an old-timey car. I love Mackinac Island and have ridden a tandem bicycle on that highway on several occasions. We were there about 10 years ago and, I kid you not, we saw the Harlem Globetrotters there. They had been playing in Detroit and they came over to the island for the day and did a bunch of public appearances. We got to do some 19th century dancing with them. They seemed like nice young men and were very good sports about the whole thing. I felt for the guy who had to wear the Globey costume in the summer sun.

    Okay, there is something you're not telling us... I can't put my finger on it, but for some reason I think that the *big fuckoff airport* in the middle of the island almost definitively has motor vehicles. And while they may not run on this highway (making you technically correct) the line about 100% of the island having banned cars must surely be false. How else would they handle airport operations? I mean, ARFF arguably falls under the "emergency vehicles" exception, but all the other stuff... Do they have horse-drawn airstairs?!? Do they tow aircraft with horses?!?

  • Jake Kenney

    QemeH there literally might be one plow and lawn mower. You said “horse-drawn chairs and tow trucks. None of those since the biggest airplanes are too small for rolling stairs. The biggest jet might be an occasional Gulfstream and those have built in stairs. Edit:after a bit of googling I don’t even think there are any jets that land on the island. Just small prop planes and helicopters

  • QemeH

    @Jake Kenney Okay, let's start with the easy ones: How do they remove snow and ice from the runway in the winter? I doubt that they shovel over 11k feet of asphalt by hand. Or do they just close the airport when it snows? Same goes for the grass that is at FAA regulation height around the runway. Does the entire island's population help with their scythe? I'm not saying there have to be huge trucks or anything, but I'm 100% sure they have at least small, one-seater vehicles.

Government uses the term to save lives a lot and the cost is lives themselves plus freedom. Look at it this way people talk about the us dropping atomic bombs on Japan as is it was a bad thing. It was not it was a good thing why u ask because the 250 thousand that died saved millions. The cost to invade would have been 8 to 10 million Japanese plus 1 to million Americans. There r by far more lives saved by the gun then taken. I was using being condescending with using wokeness. Using the term developing nations.

    Hang on a minute! Christopher Reeve wasn't even close to being the first actor to portray Superman! Not counting the several actors who portrayed him on the radio, or the voice of the animated movie serials (Bud Collyer), Kirk Alyn was the first actor to portray superman (in person) on the silver screen! He played the superhero on the silver screen way back in 1948 or so. Shortly after the George Pal TV production of Superman starred George Reeves. Then Christopher Reeve played in the movie at the vanguard of the high budget superhero movie genre. Someone else may have already mentioned this, but I wasn't about to read though 1726 comments to find out. Thanks fro the great video anyway.
