Everything will be all right, in time. Humanity has survived everything thrown at it so far, and it will survive overpopulation -- sure there might be a few difficult years but in the end humanity will prevail.

My guess is that ordinary guns will have unlimted ammo but heavy weapons will require ammo since they are more powerful.
Has to do with balancing I think. Hammering on the trigger while equipped with your infinite rockets rocket launcher would be kinda boring after a while and would ruin the gameplay.

Imagine the embarrising small-talk with the cashier when you're buying a coffin at Wal-Mart.  
 
- You're buying a lot of milk
- Yeah, I have brittle bones you know...
- Oh, really so does -- Oh... A coffin...
- Yep...
- So... Who died?

Who do you think these guys steal their guns from? I bet it's people with guns. So banning them would be pretty effective.
Woop-de-do..!

Japan is know to have a very strict regulations on firearms, and it looks like it's working: 0.05 per 100,000 compared to the US's 14.24 "
They aren't stealing the guns, they're buying them illegally.  They can't get a gun at Steve's gun shop because they got busted for shoplifting, so they buy them from their buddy.  There's a huge black/grey market for guns in the US.  Making it tougher to legally get guns isn't going to help.  Yes, maybe if we'd had tough gun control laws since the 40s, like Japan, we'd be alright.  But now we have way more guns than people, you aren't going to make them disappear by increasing regulation.  In fact, when it's already easier for most people that are committing crimes to illegally obtain guns than to legally obtain them, you're doing yourself a disservice by increasing regulation.  In states that allow concealed weapons permits weapon crimes decrease and accidental deaths see no change. "
The fact that people are allowed to own guns means there are more guns in circulation, legaly or otherwise, which means there are more ways to illegaly obtain them, by stealing, buying or what ever. In most parts of the world people actually have to make an effort to get a gun.
Also, to get a little more on the subject; the father shot his son with a gun, which I presume he acquired legally. In Japan, Switzerland, Norway, Germany, England, Austrailia [...] something like this would never happen because the father hadn't own a gun.

Titanic. No doubt.

Listing Apocalpyse Now as the most overrated film of all time and calming it's "[...]terribly acted" and "[...]somehow managed to be ludicrously over dramatic without any drama." and that it "[...]doesn’t do “Heart of Darkness” any justice" just makes me feel bad for the guy who wrote the article.

I'm a lasagne type of guy, so pasta for me.

Yes and No. Where I live it used to be legal so that's not piracy - right? But I did download when it was still legal. Haven't downloaded a game for a couple of years now since the bill to illegalize downloading and illegal distrubuting of copy righted material was passed. Also, my PC died on me so now I use my brothers old crappy laptop.
