actually it may save lives in that the cops won't shoot a toy gun carry desperado.

my daughter did the same, we called he a closet walker because when she did do it she just got up and walked perfectly across uneven ground to get a cookie out of a box on somebody else's picnic blanket :)
"A SWAT team raided co-owner Joe Palumbo's Albion Gun Shop without a warrant. They were acting on orders from the Narcotics Enforcement Unit, who asked the shop to hand over a customer list so they could determine how many people had purchased New York SAFE Act compliant rifles. " so why is the narcotics unit involved? Cumo is running so this is the time to vote against him.
in the late 80's early 90's colt was being run by accountants and finance people who, at that time, figured out that they could make money from pushing financial paper than making something so they whole hog that way. Any one at that point could make money that way but that went bust and you actually had to be smart to make money pushing paper. They weren't, so went back to picking the government pockets with too little too late Seems they have not learned anything, but their quality if still good so it will be a loss.
Hey come down to NY - a couple of years ago they renamed the Triboro bridge to the Robert Kennedy bridge, On November 19, 2008, the Triborough Bridge was officially renamed after Robert F. Kennedy at the request of the Kennedy family. The bridge had only been know as the triboro since 1936. Now there are signs all around saying the Robert kennedy bridge formerly known as the Triboro. Given that Roberts connect with NYC was purely as a political stepping stone sounds appropriate doesn't it

in NY these are the rules: The New York State Self-Defense Spray Law - Penal Law 265.20 Requires special labeling and control of sales. In order to purchase this product the law states: • You must be over the age of 18. • You must have no history of felony convictions or assaults. • Product must be purchased from an authorized dealer, pharmacy or gun dealer. • You must complete a form with your name, address, birth date and signature. REMEMBER • You can’t bring a spray from another state into New York. • You can’t buy it online. • You can’t give it to a minor. It use to be illegal in NY, In NJ it is legal but there are lots of restrictions on size and contents
Well written but as usually it will get buried because it does not fit the narrative. See Democrats are peace loving, and love everyone and it is only those nasty repubs that hate and hate everyone. Can't have the peons being confused with the facts.
almost everyone in the field thinks they know everything - the new ones because they were told it in school and the experienced ones because they are told it on the job. None of it is true, they know their small area and think that makes them gods. I know because I was in the tech field for 28 years and saw it but now I am teaching it at a University and it is even worse there.
just heard about duckduckgo and switched to it to try out. I am also looking for a new browser and looking at Opera. we will see.

Sorry Pasul you just showed that you really do not understand. If we follow common core as it is being dictated we will have student that may pass the tests but will know nothing and especially not be able to do anything in the STEM areas. We will just become another 3rd rate country. You know we put people on the moon withe the old math and science why does it require a student to draw little circles representing the values and then count them now-a-days to do the same thing. When a parent who is an accountant or somebody who works with numbers all day can not help their child with their math homework something is wrong. When Homework become a group project something is terribly wrong. It is garbage of the worse kind and thankfully more and more states are realizing it.
from the article: They were developed by states, allowing states to compare their students' performance. no it wasn't it was created by a third party of non-educators, mostly sociologists, who created and copyrighted the "standard" . The Feds offered it to the states with millions of grant money as a bribe and the second bribe of a wavier from the no child left behind requirements. it is a race to the bottom farce. The testing is owned by a private company who stores the results in its own database not at schools. The school heads never saw it until it was imposed upon them and can not change it either.
