Colorado Dems pass draconian gun measures by anonymous vote


A ban on high capacity magazines, arbitrarily defined as being capable of holding more than 15 rounds, was passed by the Colorado legislature today on a voice vote. House Bill 13-1224 was sponsored by Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora) whose description of her reasons for introducing the Bill made it clear that it is an emotional response to a tragic event.

NewEgg Beats Patent Trolls


It sounds like a criminal operation worthy of the old world of, say, southern Italy (no offense, guys!). Indeed, but this is how it works in the U.S. these days. The looting is legal. The blackmail is approved. The graft is in the open. The expropriation operates under the cover of the law. The backup penalties are inflicted by the official courts.

Want To Know Why People Need Guns?


The following video from many years ago titled "A Daughter's Regret" shows the testimony of Suzanna Gratia Hupp whose parents were killed when a madman opened fire in a Texas cafeteria. It is a powerful reminder of how essential it is to protect the Second Amendment, not for duck hunting, as she points out, but to protect our loved ones from maniacs ... and a government that would put us in such a vulnerable position.

Families try to prevent boys playing girls' sports


A mother and her daughter seek to reverse legislation from 1979 and ban boys from playing on female competitive sports teams. The daughter suffered a concussion after colliding with a boy during a field hockey game. Though I can see why the mother would be concerned, I am unable to support new legislation that would allow a girl to play on a high school football team but not allow a boy to play on high school field hockey team.

‘Not every opinion is valid’: Free speech wall torn down


I think that this story speaks for itself, but this is another story highlighting an attack against free speech at Universities. I recently graduated from Carleton University and I wish I could say that these kind of events were rare. This piece has many priceless quotes including “Only someone who had gone to university could write something so utterly stupid,” referring to the public explanation given by the individual who tore down the free speech wall.

Much more in the news article itself, but you have to read it to believe it.

If something is obstructing the flow of that radiation, for example a weapon, the device will highlight that object. Over the past twelve months, we’ve been working with the vendor and the London Metropolitan Police to develop a tool that meets our requirements. We took delivery of it last week.

Pot Dispensaries YES!, FED Confiscation YES!


Judge: Landlords must allow pot dispensaries, and FEDs can then confiscate property. Is this a backdoor way to get eminent domain? Is this "legal"? County courts offer various results, City of Oakland to go against FEDs saying to close it "would create a public safety problem by encouraging a black market for marijuana." Confusion abounds.

A Kuwaiti court sentenced a man to two years in prison for insulting the country’s ruler on Twitter, a lawyer following the case said, as the Gulf Arab state cracks down on criticism of the authorities on social media.
