  • Oregon initiative would outlaw assault weapons, unless guns are registered with police

    SALEM, Ore. – A recently filed Oregon initiative would make manufacturing, importing, possessing, purchasing or selling an assault weapon or large capacity magazine a crime – with only a few exceptions. If passed, Oregon Initiative 42 would only allow owners to keep their assault weapons and large capacity magazines if they register them with Oregon State Police. If the initiative goes into effect, anyone who owns an assault weapon or large capacity magazine will be required to remove them from the state, sell the items, surrender the items to a law enforcement agency for destruction, render the assault weapon permanently...

    The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ruled that Senate Bill 4, the state’s so-called sanctuary cities ban, can remain the law of the land in Texas for now, stating that the cities that challenged the law will likely lose in their federal court suit. Plaintiffs in the case include Austin and most of Texas’ other large cities, which sought to overturn the controversial law. It requires cities and counties to enforce detention requests placed on local jail inmates suspected of illegal immigration.
  • Cuomo considering statewide ban on plastic bags

    03/06/2018 5:36:39 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 52 replies
    Gov. Cuomo said he’s considering backing a statewide ban on plastic bags to help curb unnecessary trash — a day after Mayor de Blasio proposed such a restriction for New York City. “It’s clear that we need to address the real environmental concerns caused by the proliferation of plastic ‎bags, and a ban is one of the options we’re reviewing,” Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi said. Not so fast, said one influential state lawmaker. “The first step is that they should enforce what’s on the books,” said Sen. Simcha Felder (D-Brooklyn), who led a successful fight against the city imposing a...

    Amid heightened concerns about firearms in the wake of last month’s Parkland, Florida, high school shooting massacre, Santa Clara County officials are taking another look at banning gun shows from the county fairgrounds. The Santa Clara County Fairgrounds currently hosts two gun shows a year. But county Supervisor Ken Yeager said gun shows conflict with the county’s mission of “promoting the health and well-being of our residents” and have drawn complaints from residents. “More and more often, I am getting approached by people who tell me how disturbed they are when they see billboards or signs advertising gun shows at...
  • Nets Push Fake News Trump Made It Easier for Mentally Ill to Buy Guns

    Fresh off their disinformation campaign in the immediate aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school shooting in which they falsely claimed there had been 18 school shootings this year, the three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) moved on to another fake news topic they wanted to push on the American people: President Trump and the GOP made it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns. The accusation that a bill designed to remove restrictions and allow the mentally ill to purchase guns was passed by the GOP and signed by President Trump had long been debunked. As...

    The leaders of the Jewish communities of four Nordic countries said that a bill proposing to ban nonmedical circumcision in Iceland “will guarantee” that no Jewish community is established there. The presidents of the umbrella groups of Jewish communities in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland issued the unusual warning Tuesday in an open letter to all Icelandic lawmakers in reaction to the submission last month of a bill proposing to ban all nonmedical circumcision of boys younger than 18 in Iceland, a Scandinavian island nation of some 300,000 people with a few hundred Jews and Muslims. Lawmakers from four parties...

    Twitter Inc. said Friday it will not block world leaders from its social media platform because they play a critical role in global and public conversations. The statement comes after some Twitter users have called on the company to ban President Trump for tweets that they say encourage violence, even stoking fears of a nuclear war between the U.S. and North Korea. "Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets, would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around...

    When state construction crews begin work on westbound Interstate 696 in Roseville this spring, they’ll have to knock off the noise at some point in the night. The Roseville City Council recently rejected a request by the Michigan Department of Transportation to work 24 hours a day, seven days week on the $90 million project. “We are worried about the peace and quiet of our residents who live near the freeway as they are trying to get to sleep at night,” said Mayor Pro Tem Jan Haggerty. MDOT plans to shut down the entire span of westbound I-696 from Interstate...

    Scientists are calling for a worldwide ban on glitter, warning that the arts and crafts supplies are a hazard to the environment, particularly the ocean. Dr. Trisia Farrelly, an environmental anthropologist at Massey University in New Zealand, told The Independent that “all glitter” should be banned because it’s microplastic. “Microplastics are fragments of plastic less than 5 millimetres in length. Their size makes them an appealing – though dangerous – food item for many animals,” writes The Independent. “Not only have marine animals from plankton to whales been documented eating plastic, often with fatal consequences, microplastics can end up inside...

    President Trump used the massacre at a mosque in Egypt to renew his calls for a travel ban and “wall” on Friday afternoon. “Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life. We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt,” he tweeted. The White House said Trump would be speaking with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi at 3 p.m. Earlier in the day, Trump called the carnage, which left...
  • US judge blocks latest Trump travel restrictions to the US from eight countries (This again?)

    A federal judge in Hawaii blocked President Donald Trump's latest bid to impose restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the United States, which had been set to take effect this week. The open-ended ban, announced last month, targeted people from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea, as well as certain government officials from Venezuela. It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the Supreme Court. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on Tuesday granted Hawaii's request to temporarily block the federal government from enforcing the...

  • Bitcoin, Other Leading Cryptocurrencies Tumble After China Bans ICOs

    Investing ^ | 09/04/17 - Bitcoin and the other leading cryptocurrencies all sold off sharply on Monday, after China banned individuals and organizations from raising funds through initial coin offerings, saying the practice constituted illegal fundraising. The People’s Bank of China said in a statement earlier that it had completed investigations into ICOs, and will strictly punish offerings in the future while penalizing legal violations in ones already completed. Individuals and organizations that have completed ICO fundraisings should make arrangements to return funds, the PBOC said, issuing the strongest regulatory challenge so far to the burgeoning market for digital token sales. It also...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit challenging President Donald Trump’s ban on transgender individuals joining the military. The federal lawsuit was filed in Maryland on Monday by the ACLU of Maryland on behalf of several service members who are transgender. Trump directed the Pentagon on Friday to implement the ban on transgender individuals joining the military, which he first announced in a tweet. He also gave to the Pentagon the authority to decide the future of openly transgender people already serving. The lawsuit says Trump’s policy violates the equal protection rights of transgender service...

    Jack Webb, the co-franchisee of a Carl's Jr. in Alberta, Canada, was discovered to have committed multiple food safety violations while being filmed by in-store security cameras, CBC reported. The first clip of 10 shared with CBC shows Webb almost elbow-deep in barbecue sauce. Webb is mixing the sauce with his bare hands, a clear violation of food safety measures, going so far as to refuse a spoon when a worker offers it to him. Other clips show Webb mixing sauces and scooping them from one container to another with his bare hands. In one case, he uses a spatula...
