David Gregory is not above the law; he is a journalist, and must be held accountable to the same law as every other person.

DC High Capacity Ammunition Magazines – D.C. Official Code 7-2506.01

(b) No person in the District shall possess, sell, or transfer any large capacity ammunition feeding device regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm. For the purposes of this subsection, the term large capacity ammunition feeding device means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

We The People demand that he be formally charged for violation of this law on "Meet The Press."

(Excerpt) Read more at petitions.whitehouse.gov ...


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: awb; banglist; guncontrol; meetthepress; secondamendment; sourcetitlenoturl
If this was you or I, we would be charged.

He should get nothing less.

He is obviously thumbing his nose at a patently unconstitutional law in an effort to get it overturned.

Just by possessing that magazine to flash on his show, the buffoon was providing proof that guns laws obviously do not work.

I don’t go no where near “whitehouse.gov” websites. I don’t trust them. And I definitely don’t want Barry sending me emails all the time begging for three bucks.

Agreed. Team 0bama probably set up some of those 'succession' petitions to gather lists of names of 'uncooperative citizens', to ultimately be sent to indoctrination camps. How odd a gun grab would immediately follow those petitions.

You've been posting on FR since 1998. You're probably on every FedGov list there is, they know more about you than your ISP and you've narrowed down what category to file you in tremendously.

Think about it.

Guess I missed what happened, but it doesn’t matter, all it takes is 1 Person to Formally Make A CITOZENS ARREST, The Police are REQUIRED BY LAW TO ACT ON IT and MAKE THE ARREST if there is Probable Cause or a REASONABLE SUSPICION a Crime has been committed, the DA is NOT REQUIRED to prosecute or even bring charges.

I am telling you that signing a WH.gov petition is meaningless compared to the internet footprint you already have. Signing the petition tells them almost nothing about you. I am telling you that you can’t make the water in a swimming pool more wet by pouring a glass of water in it.

There are many ways of reducing your internet footprint. First thing is selectively limiting cookies allowed into your computer using your browser options. Next, you can stop web bugs and other invasive web page spyware artifacts using the hosts file on your computer (a bonus is that this can also stop virtually all third party advertisements).

Yes, I did explain it in detail. You just insist on ignoring it. Whether it has an upside or not is irrelevant to the question of whether they can identify you with it.

Anyway, I'm having a hard time imagining the Federal trial where their most important evidence against you is that you wanted David Gregory (punk) arrested and signed a petition saying so. LOL

I use a good deal of that. FWIW there are much better ways of doing it. Use Incognito so your entire operating system is on a flash drive. Use Trucrypt for on-the-fly encryption. Use proxy servers for everything. Use Tor.

But none of that will do anything at all to erase 12 years of posting on FR without any of those protections. And nothing at all will protect you if JR is served with a warrant for personal info on a given account. :-)

I agree about the encryption. Not sure why you would have your OS on a flash drive if it is already secure, except for backup.

Another important aspect of securing your computer is to NEVER download browser toolbars. They literally infect your whole OS and constantly transmit info to Google or whose-ever toolbar you download.

For example, a recent Flash update automatically downloaded Google toolbar onto my OS without asking for my consent or notifying me. I opened the networking task manager and it was a steady stream of information being sent out - I had to turn off my internet connection until I removed it from my OS. It literally took half an hour for me to remove everything it placed throughout my OS using Revo Uninstaller and Registry Healer. What a bunch of pricks...

(Incidentally, Google and the Obama administration are tight, so expect your info to be going to the government.)

If you use a flash drive to hold your OS nothing is ever put on the computer's hard drive so there is nothing that can ever be recovered from it. You can also plug your OS into any computer with a USB port and use it to operate your OS. Not a trace of your activity will be left on that computer either.

It also has a feature that scrambles everything on RAM when you shut down. Normally everything on RAM disappears anyway after a few minutes but in those minutes there is a trace electrical imprint of what you were doing.

If someone wanted to stop it from disappearing and recover the data they could literally freeze the RAM and recover the data in a lab. As Incognito shuts down it overwrites everything in RAM with utter gobbeldygook.

OK. I guess if you have a computer that other people can access that you would rather not I can see the benefit of an external OS and RAM scrambler. I don’t have that problem, so onboard encryption and backup to external flash drives is good enough for me.

To help tweek your Windows OS to better security I recommend utilizing the many free utilities at Gibson Research (http://www.grc.com/default.htm), especially Shoot The Messenger, UnPlug n’ Pray and ShieldsUP! Also, get to know your Windows Services Utility and turn off anything you don’t need.

Incidentally, a Windows OS can be tweeked into security without knowing any code. I use XP Pro with about a thousand tweeks and Registry edits. I haven’t used any anti-spyware, antivirus, or software firewalls for years and never get spyware or viruses or hacked. I found it all with Google searches, and I would not classify myself as a geek.

Thanks for the links. I already installed Revo Uninstaller after your mention of it. I have never done anything extraordinary in terms of computer protection, other than basic anti-virus and malware software, but I have never had a virus on any of my computers. It’s always good to learn more and play safer though. Thanks again!

You’re welcome. Another benefit of good security tweeking is that your computer runs at maximum efficiency when everything that bogs it down is turned off. However, tweeking is time consuming. I started with a basic OS install and Acronis True Image. I diary every tweek and do a snapshot backup before every change, so if there are deleterious effects I can back out of it without having to undo any damage. If I were asked what the single best tweek is, I would say optimizing your hosts file. It keeps most of the internet trash out and actually speeds up uploads and downloads - especially sites with lots of junk on them. You can also add your own addresses of annoying ads that get through, to keep them out permanently.

You can find out how to do it here: http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/zero/
