Tough fight to bring some tough men home…
Tough fight to bring some tough men home…
Seems like a trend is forming between politicians pushing control and law enforcement over refusing to act on said controls…
A number of sheriffs in my state have told the governor here to come up with something else.
A federal judge blocked her stanky liberal a$$ today.
She should be arrested. Period.
And fitted with a hemp necktie…
sucks to be them but they got the gov’t they voted for and deserve
a small victory but still good news for us gun nuts
Kinda funny how all these liberal states complain about THEIR LIBERAL policies when it starts to effect them. They’re crying about maybe 100,000 illegals. Those of us in border states are dealing with millions of them.
Ken Paxton was acquitted of all charges today
Last year we had very few Monarch flutterby’s… Hope they make it here this year…
They are everywhere here in late fall. I can remember a trip to Corpus Christi a couple years ago going down Hwy. 77 between Victoria and Corpus. They were so thick I had to stop and clean my windshield and wipers as well as refill my wiper squirter tank. There where bands of them so thick it was like driving into a dark cloud. They were literally covering the road and my truck. Took me weeks to get them out of my radiator fins and off my truck.
There’s been a decent number this year through Illinois. Enough areas also looked to have a good amount of milkweed so that hopefully next year will be good as well
Do F-35’s fall under “Finders Keepers”? If I find a multi-million dollar advanced fighter I am going to put a $28 AirTag on it.
They’ve gotten very serious…
it’s AI went bonkers, pilot bailed, they hit the failsafe button and crashed it but the AI fought for a bit so they didn’t know where it finally went down. They shut down all flights immediately for 24 hours, military got on the horn with the programmer to flash the other AI’s to stop it from happening again but they’re going to blame the pilot because we’re not supposed to know these things are too twitchy to fly without AI.
The scary part is these things carry munitions…
I’m starting to really hate technology.
The AI is used for data analytics and compiling only. It has no control features. They AI integration that is/to be performed will be more for the “Loyal Wingman” style programs. They are more interested in using F-16s for full AI control for the time being given the costs and time needed to perform it on the F-35 which has a myriad of other problems that need to be solved first.
I have “grown” parts contained in the noses of a number of those jets in the ASEA system…
Another note: the entire F-35 fleet for the Marine Corps has now been grounded pending the investigation outcome.
Shoulda stuck with the F-22 for the long haul…
Sorry but I don’t believe that they didn’t further integrate AI on these birds. It’s just too tempting to the brass not to.
That’s what the F/A-XX (NGAD) program is for as well as the new “Replicator” program announcement.
The point is to ditch pilots…even the Pentagon won’t waste a $80 million bird when you can do the same with a mixed composition drone swarm for a lot cheaper.
Plus, the entire F-35 fleet is data linked together. One bird lost in the wrong spot by ANY country operating them could given whomever a good basic understanding of the beginning architecture to the software and hardware. They know it’s best to leave the manned jets barebones when it come to AI.
I’ve learned not to get my hopes too high…but yet…
(Reuters) - A federal judge in California on Friday declared that state’s ban on magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition unconstitutional, saying it violated the Second Amendment rights of firearms owners.
U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez in San Diego said California’s “sweeping ban” went too far by preventing people from using magazines for lawful purposes, including self-defense.
“The history and tradition of the Second Amendment clearly supports state laws against the use or misuse of firearms with unlawful intent, but not the disarmament of the law-abiding citizen,” Benitez wrote in a 71-page decision.
Benitez cited a June 2022 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v Bruen, requiring that firearms restrictions be “consistent with this nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation” to pass muster.
One government solution to a few mad men with guns is a law that makes into criminals responsible, law-abiding people wanting larger magazines simply to protect themselves. The history and tradition of the Second Amendment clearly supports state laws against the use or misuse of firearms with unlawful intent, but not the disarmament of the law-abiding citizen. That kind of a solution is an infringement on the Constitutional right of citizens to keep and bear arms. The adoption of the Second Amendment was a freedom calculus decided long ago by our first citizens who cherished the individual freedom with its risks more than the subservient security of a British ruler or the smothering safety of domestic lawmakers. The freedom they fought for was worth fighting for then, and that freedom is entitled to be preserved still.
