What does it mean to have a smooth transition at the top of the swing?  Is it desirable?

it means not to have sudden jerky change. Many golfers sart their downswing before they have finished their backswing. Some people pause at the top,even. The power comes from the downswing but a lot of players don't get that and are in a hurry.

      Question about this: Aren't you still likely to have a rib broken if you're hit in the chest wearing kevlar from close range? I know kevlar also is very bad at withstanding repeated shots, just because a majority of the protection comes from the tensile strength of the weave that is broken once it's hit by a bullet (it's the reason that vests have to be thrown out if they're shot, because they can't guarantee it will stop another bullet). A center of mass hit means the perpetrator is hurting quite a bit, and likely not as concerned with killing others as he was before he was shot.

      Correct. Everyone should read this. This guy is qualified to talk about it and he backs his argument up with statistics. He doesn't speak about things that he doesn't have knowledge of. My opinion: I agree with this article on almost all points.

      Gun laws throughout the world will be challenged as 3D printing technology improves.  While the government can try to regulate sharing CAD drawings of guns online, it will be virtually impossible to prevent people from "printing" guns in their homes. We keep trying to address mental problems by blaming guns when in reality we need to take action against those who are mentally ill and a threat to others.  Instead of the parents of the OR shooter being upset their son had access to guns why didn't they make sure he received proper care and if they felt he was a danger to others call the cops.  I blame the parents more than I blame the gun. One can get in a big SUV, drive into Manhattan and cause a lot of carnage just running people down on Broadway or at a high school when school lets out, one doesn't need a gun to hurt a lot of people.  Psycho's may think guns are cool and convenient but ultimately someone who is sick enough to want to hurt a lot of people will find a method to do so.

      Detroit got screwed by the refs last night and it absolutely cost them a win. I thought it would be reviewable because it was a turnover but, by rule, whether the player batted the ball is considered a subjective decision and subjective decisions made by the refs are not reviewable.

      Then, so far as I know from when I last read up on this stuff, you're likely unaware of the statistics (or must think they don't apply to you). Good example of the emotional argument, Drew. And one from a movie? C'mon. Do you want Bruce Willis to be the "nut" that saves you from an asteroid? Heck, that involved a nuclear weapon IIRC, too. It's a movie. The truth (as I last read it) is that armed citizens help in situations like that - they avoid serious injury and death at a higher rate - and it's not really even a close margin. There are reasons most states allow the use of lethal force on someone who is committing a felony. I don't care enough about these to read them; some of them may be counter to my point, some of them may be from trash sites, I don't care. I just did a quick search, and these are some of the top hits: http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2013/02/02/10-stories-that-prove-guns-save-lives-n1503549/page/full
      (that's apparently a whole site about it, so I'm sure it's heavily propagandized, but still…).
