Enjoyed until he kept bringing up vaccines, completly ignorant that there are TONS of scientists, MDs, experts that are "antivax" and or the reasons. Wants more speech though wants to silence the very people who are asking for better safety studies and better products.

stand your ground specifically outlines the necessity of the situation where there was no other option. you dont just get to shoot someone who tells at you. you have to be in clear danger. you try walking away while you're being attacked. more importantly if you're being attacked a social norm has been broken by the aggressor. as the victim, you dont know if that social norm has been broken to only punch you, stab you or mortally wound you. you just dont know. is there an abuse of the stand your ground defense? absolutely. but that's another conversation.

"God didn't make man equal ,Colt did !" if everyone carried a gun and had proper training and the right to use it there would be far less crime , rape etc... police are only good for writing tickets and harrassing the poor..Every town that has right to carry laws have much less crime ,,look up the facts before spewing more nonsense ...Cars and alcohol/smoking kill more people than guns do...Alcohol especially....lmao and weeds illegal..fill up the prisons with potheads and let gangbangers and illegals walk the streets...The American melting pot is overfull !!!close all the borders and deport all the illegals ..I would deport anyone who hasnt learned the language yet too...f'em all...

I don't understand his argument for "stand your ground" laws. The way he was explaining it it sounds like he has a fundamental misunderstanding of "stand your ground." It has nothing to do with assaulting/shooting/killing someone who is not a threat. "Stand your ground" has to do with the right to defend yourself and not have to retreat from a legitimate threat. "Stand your ground" laws are entirely necessary to make sure victims are protected by law. I hope I was just misunderstanding him, but it sounded like he was against them.

kris brown Then it wouldn't or shouldn't hold up in court. I agree with the guy that a person should shallow their pride and walk away and keep things from escalating. Avoidance is the #1 thing in self defense. But stand your ground laws are necessary to protect the defender from civil action.

Brock Beldham It's not surprising to hear this argument for unlimited free speech coming from two straight white dudes and them saying about how important it is. Perhaps if they were in a marginalized group of society that has always lived in fear for their safety they may feel differently. Is Canada's policy on free speech more regulated? Yes. Is it perfect? No. Is it wrong that it exists? No. Words can incite violence, and the propagation of violence is occuring more and more frequently. The natural streams of regulation that developed over the last few hundred years (traditional media) are being usurped by social media, and so there is greater need for regulation of those who feed off the hatred of open online forums where peoples' anonymity is still maintained. Of course, you're probably thinking, "but that isn't the same thing as speaking outside on a soapbox". And while I agree with that, the opinions of those out in the streets propagating hatred are being hugely reinforced and supported by online communities from the comfort of their smartphones and computers. This is why the laws in Canada exist. Oh, and 99.99% of people in Canada exist quite happily without being slapped with fines like the ones that were handed down to that comedian. If you read into it, he felt the need to continuously make defaming statements against two women at his show apparently after they kissed each other in the audience. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to put an audience member in their place without shaming them for being gay.

Ben Aussem ....As long as your expression fits into a neat and tiny box. For example: Canada does not have anything in our version of the constitution about unlimited speech. So we have "hate crime" laws that can punish you above what is normally given to non-hateful criminals. so for example, if you assault someone you will be charged, if that person is gay, female, disabled, or a minority then that person can cry "hate crime" and you get an additional charge on top of assault. plus, if its a hate crime you don't go to regular court, you go to a "hate crime" tribunal where the decision is made by non-judges, you are not entitled to the same rights/protections found in the regular courts, the prosecution does have to have the same burden of proof for a conviction, and you are not allowed to legally appeal the decision. i think the addition of a "hate crime" tier in our system is not fair, but what is even more unfair is that this system also can be applied to civil disputes involving speech and being offended is all it takes to sue. For example, there was a stand-up comedian who was being interruped during one of his sets, he sees that the hacklers are two women alone together and makes a lesbian joke. Well, that comedian was taken to court and charged something around $20,000 for insulting the women who interrupted his show. If speech that is offensive, but not dangerous, to some people has been disallowed officially by the government, then add those rules to our constitution then we don't have free speech.
