Condition white is good for business! For you? Not so much. Stay wary, my friends . . . TripAdvisor’s business practices under review by FTC as more travelers say their warnings of rapes, injuries were blocked

Finally . . . Black Friday for guns: US government to sell M1911 pistols to general public for cheap
A scheme known as the Civilian Marksmanship Program is set to use the amendment to allow the sale of powerful pistols to the general public.
The scheme, which was first set up in 1903, is aimed at promoting firearm safety, but one of the most popular aspects of it is sale of surplus weaponry.
In the 2018 act, the long-standing .45 ACP M1911A1 pistol, a staple of the US military for more than a century, will soon be able to be transferred into the ownership of hundreds of gun owners in the US.
A cache of the guns, which are “no longer actively issued for military service” will be given to the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
On top of the M1911A1, the M1911 pistol, the M–1 Garand, and .22 rimfire rifles will all be up for grabs when they are sold in 2018.
Define “effectiveness.” Better yet, quantify it. And then tell me what part of “shall not be infringed” allows limits on lawful firearms purchases . . . Virginia is still the go-to state for criminals shopping for illegal guns
Virginia had a law on the books for 19 years limiting handgun purchases to one a month, but — despite its effectiveness in curbing the illicit gun trade and appeals from families who lost loved ones in the Virginia Tech mass shooting — it was repealed in 2012 by the Republican-controlled legislature and then-Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (R).
Efforts to reinstate this sensible limit have failed, and Virginia is once again one of the largest suppliers of crime guns on the East Coast.
Why are Washington state’s “pot shops” gun-free zones in the first place? . . . Petition wants to allow pot shop workers to carry guns
Tuesday’s shooting has added calls to allow pot shop employees to carry guns to work. Currently, Washington’s Liquor and Cannabis Board bans guns from pot shops. It does not matter if you are an employee or even have a concealed carry permit, guns are not allowed.
A petition is looking to change that. Written just days after Cameron Smith was killed at a Cheney pot shop, it says that pot shop workers have a “God given right” to defend themselves. Cavasier agrees and says guns could have prevented her co-workers from being shot.
The 440 firearms found at airport checkpoints in Florida so far this year has already surpassed the 411 that were found all of last year. Since 2013, the number of guns found by the Transportation Security Administration in the state has increased by 93 percent.
Terrorists? Who, us? . . . Iraqi Militia Indicates Will Hand Heavy Guns to Army After Islamic State Quashed
A prominent Iraqi militia indicated on Thursday it would give any heavy weapons it had to the military once Islamic State was defeated and rejected a proposed U.S. congressional bill designating it a terrorist group.
Harakat Hezbollah al Nujaba, which has about 10,000 fighters, is one of the most important militias in Iraq. Though made up of Iraqis, it is loyal to Iran and is helping Tehran create a supply route through Iraq to Damascus . . .
“The tanks, armored vehicles, and machine guns belong to the army and it is natural that after the battles are over they return to the army,” [Iraqi military spokesman Brigadier General Yahya] Rasool told Reuters in an interview.
If that’s the number of guns the Brits intercepted, how many got through? Number of weapons seized at UK ports triples
More than 6,300 guns and associated paraphernalia have been taken by Border Force officers in 2016/17 – a sharp rise from 2,299 in the previous 12 months which included the UK’s biggest ever gun smuggling plot.
