But pollsters are are always accurate. Just ask Hillary Clinton . . .
Time and again national pollsters insist on reporting how NRA members and other gun owners feel about gun control. Don’t believe a word of it.
None of these pollsters has access to NRA’s membership list. NRA strictly protects its membership list and doesn’t give it to mainstream media types, pollsters, solicitors or anyone else. It is a private list and always has been. Anyone who claims to have access to NRA’s membership list is not telling the truth.
Pollsters simply ask people they survey if they are NRA members or gun owners. However, they have absolutely no way to determine whether the information they get is accurate. So despite their claims, they can’t accurately say how NRA members or gun owners feel about gun control.
Twenty-first century flak . . .
Raytheon Company is developing a 100 kW class laser weapon system preliminary design for integration onboard the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles. This is a $10 million U.S. Army’s High Energy Laser Tactical Vehicle Demonstration program contract. It is expected that there will be a follow up $130 million contract starting in 2019.
The laser will be used to defend the army against drones, rockets and mortars.
The US army has already tested 5 and 10-kilowatt lasers on trucks.
Medium tactical vehicles have 5 tons of cargo capability and are usually 10-ton vehicles. Vehicles can be heavier if they have more armor,
Magistrate, 67, who defended his family against an armed gang who stormed his £2million mansion was ARRESTED himself… and accused of racially aggravated assault
This is why we’re celebrating today the fact that we’re no longer British . . .
A magistrate defending his family against an armed gang who stormed his home ended up being arrested himself – and accused of a racially aggravated assault.
Police detained Nigel Stringer for three hours and he remains under investigation while the gang – believed to have been armed with a gun, knives, metal bars and a crossbow – were allowed to leave.
The 67-year-old, who has been a magistrate for 26 years, is now standing down to pursue a private prosecution against the men.
His wife Cindy, 55, says she lives in constant fear following the terrifying events of January 14.
He’s reportedly the front runner for the Supreme Court nomination . . .
In follow-on litigation to the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling on the Second Amendment in D.C. v. Heller, a D.C. Circuit panel majority, consisting of two Republican appointees, upheld the District of Columbia’s ban on possession of most semi-automatic rifles and its registration requirement for all guns in D.C. Judge Kavanaugh dissented (in Heller v. D.C. (2011)). An excerpt from his dissent:
In Heller, the Supreme Court held that handguns – the vast majority of which today are semi-automatic – are constitutionally protected because they have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens. There is no meaningful or persuasive constitutional distinction between semi-automatic handguns and semiautomatic rifles. Semi-automatic rifles, like semi-automatic handguns, have not traditionally been banned and are in common use by law-abiding citizens for self-defense in the home, hunting, and other lawful uses. Moreover, semiautomatic handguns are used in connection with violent crimes far more than semi-automatic rifles are. It follows from Heller’s protection of semi-automatic handguns that semi-automatic rifles are also constitutionally protected and that D.C.’s ban on them is unconstitutional. (By contrast, fully automatic weapons, also known as machine guns, have traditionally been banned and may continue to be banned after Heller.)

Wonder how much he’d take to stay there . . .
Adelaide’s Peter Drew has taken another swing at America’s gun control laws, as he prepares to visit, what he refers to as the “stupid country” for his latest poster campaign.
Drew began his poster campaign in 2015 and has generated awareness around the way Australians treats asylum seekers as well as the traditional owners of Australian land.
But his latest campaign looks beyond Australia, with the artist heading to the United States to generate discussion around American gun laws, equality and offensive comments.
