  • Loudoun County (Virginia) BoS Proposes Outdoor Shooting Ban

    06/21/2018 4:23:09 AM PDT · by Ken Regis
    06/12/2018 | Ken Regis
    Today, June 21, the Loudoun County (Virginia) Board of Supervisors (BoS) will consider a proposal from Supervisor Kristen Umstattd (D-Leesburg) to amend the Loudoun County ordinance dealing with the discharge of firearms, which will affect both hunting and shooting. If this passes, there are likely to be serious consequences. Supervisor Umstattd is overreacting to a rare incident in Loudoun where a firearm was discharged carelessly and resulted in minor property damage. Discharging a weapon is always a serious matter. If the Board reacts hastily to an isolated incident, that would be a serious mistake, but that may be what is...

    How long does it take an immigrant to physically get into the country if they come in through a legal point-of-entry? In other words, is it a shorter process than the "claiming asylum" route? My research has come up empty.

    No. 7 on that internet list of Signs Your Engagement is in Trouble: “she refuses to hold your hand in public.” Okay, I made that one up, but there was an awkward and perhaps telling moment on today’s Morning Joe. When Joe Scarborough went to hold the hand of Mika Brzezinski–his long-time fiancée–Mika pulled away, saying: “Don’t. Don’t do that! Not on the air! Not on the air! What are you doing?”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Illinois' ignorance about concealed carry shootings (barf alerta0

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 21 june 2018
    Since Illinois began issuing permits to carry concealed firearms in 2014, state government has generated considerable evidence of how its 265,000 permit holders use their weapons. There have been dozens of shootings by licensees. At least 11 people have been killed. These episodes might confirm the value of armed citizens in stopping violent criminals. Or they could reveal a pattern of trigger-happy amateurs blasting away without a good reason. So which is it? We can’t say — and neither can law enforcement. As the Tribune’s Katherine Rosenberg-Douglas and Jennifer Smith Richards report, “The state police know nothing about the nearly...

    But now the FBI has managed to anger both major political parties and much of the country. It's demonstrated its capacity for political meddling and misuse of power—even if people disagree on who was on the receiving end. That offers a rare opportunity to pull the plug on a dangerously powerful agency at a moment when its potential for bias, arrogance, insubordination, and plain incompetence are on public display. Let's kill the FBI while we can.

    Monte Kronio rises 1,300 feet above the geothermally active landscape of southwestern Sicily. Hidden in its bowels is a labyrinthine system of caves, filled with hot sulfuric vapors. At lower levels, these caves average 99 degrees Fahrenheit and 100 percent humidity. Human sweat cannot evaporate and heat stroke can result in less than 20 minutes of exposure to these underground conditions. Nonetheless, people have been visiting the caves of Monte Kronio since as far back as 8,000 years ago. They’ve left behind vessels from the Copper Age (early sixth to early third millennium B.C.) as well as various sizes of...

    An egg-shaped ceramic jar covered with ceramic "rope" once held a prize delicacy: the oldest olive oil on record in Italy... Researchers made the discovery after analyzing residue of the so-called liquid gold on the beautiful jar and two other vessels uncovered at Castelluccio, an archaeological site in Sicily. "It had the signature of Sicilian tableware dated to the end of the third and beginning of the second millennium B.C., [during the] Early Bronze Age," Davide Tanasi, an assistant professor of history at the University of South Florida, said in a statement. "We wanted to learn how it was used,...

    Phillie Phanatic's hot dog cannon is synomous with Phillies games. But the Phanatic's flying meat mobile helped injure one fan at Monday's game. Kathy McVay was sitting behind home plate when she got hit between the eyes with a hot dog from Phanatic's cannon, according to Philadelphia 6ABC. McVay had a shoulder injury, so she wasn't able to catch or deflect the dog. "It just came out of nowhere. And hard," she said.
