The Marines are testing this crazy machine gun-wielding death robot – “Just last week, infantry Marines from 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines were taking the robot out on training patrols at Camp Pendleton. Later this month, they’ll head to the Marines’ desert training site at 29 Palms, California to fire off plenty of live rounds. If it were actually fielded, MAARS would complement the 12-person infantry squad that typically carries small arms, offering up a tracked vehicle that can zone in on targets with a mounted M240B machine gun firing 7.62mm NATO rounds.” Wonder if they can pack it with C4 like the Dallas bot.
An Iowa football player’s Pokémon Go game ends with four police guns pointed at his face – “Faith Ekakitie, a defensive end for the University of Iowa, described in harrowing detail an encounter he had with police as he played Pokémon Go in an Iowa City park last week. This story, sobering as it is, ended not in tragedy but with Ekakitie thanking police. ‘Today was the first time I’ve truly feared my life,’ the 23-year-old senior wrote Wednesday on Facebook, ‘and I have the media to thank for that.’” Yes, well the media does so much for us these days, it’s hard to thank them enough.
Oral argument in “Docs v. Glocks” case – “As far as the doctors’ arguments, the Court seemed most concerned with the provision of the law prohibiting discrimination by a doctor against a patient based solely upon the patient’s exercise of their right to own and possess firearms—a situation that according to the record, has not happened. Counsel for the doctors, Douglas Hallward-Driemeier, did not dispute that a decision by the court striking down all provisions except the anti-discrimination provision would be acceptable. The remainder of the questions fleshed out the impact of the remaining provisions on constitutionally protected speech, and the tone of the discussion was mostly favorable to the doctors’ and PLF’s argument that the law violates the First Amendment.”
Clinton Delegate Explains How Democrats Will Ban All Guns:
“You say sh!t like that, and people will buy into it.”
Passengers try to get pink guns through airport security – “The owner of the pink .380 Ruger Ruger semi-automatic pistol told TSA agents that they could have it and toss it, but she wound up booked into the Clayton County jail instead and her gun taken into evidence at the Atlanta Police Department. She told agents that she had a weapons permit but could not produce it, an Atlanta police report said. ‘I was running really late to the airport, so I was throwing a lot of stuff into my purse so I could get there and the gun is really small and it was in the bottom of my purse,’ she said during an interview with tooFab. ‘I just forgot it was in there. I couldn’t see it, so when I went through security check, they pretty much found it.’” Yeah, pretty much.
