Whether or not the shooter is a nutcase, many abortins performed legally today are quite simply murder. While the exact moment a proto-human becomes human is subject to debate; the fact that it happens well before normal full gestation is an accepted medical fact.
So, at some point during the pregnancy (generally accepted to be sometime between 18 and 26 weeks) the woman is carrying a separate human beng inside her. This truth, however inconvenient, is still true.
So . . . . . . . . ?
ALL abortions performed are MURDER. There is no debate on when inception begins, according to God. It begins the moment an egg and a sperm merge and mitosis begins. Have you ever seen pictures of babies 12 weeks or less, fully formed but very tiny, needing time to develop further. There is never a justifiable reason for abortion, ever. Why am I so sure? My mother lost her life giving me birth. She gave her life so that I could live. Even rape should not be a reason to kill a baby, it is not the baby’s fault a crime was committed on the mother. Our Lord views all life as precious, but man in his foolish wisdom thinks he knows more than God.
1 Corinthians 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Even before the egg and sperm unite, the Lord knows you. He forms us in the womb!

What’s high-larious is that they think hitting Washington DC will hurt America . . . sad, delusional cretins.

Yes, but the as-of-yet-unchallenged presumption is that travel on publicly owned infrastructure (the national airspace system is considered “public infrastructure” just like interstates and navigable waterways) is a PRIVILEGE not a RIGHT. So the Bill of Rights does not apply when you make the choice to use “public transportation.” “Public Transportation” of course defined so broadly that it could even include driving a tractor on private land.
First of all, anytime you hear someone describe something as "a privilege not a right" they are lying to you for the purpose of taking your rights away.
Second, the TSA is a government agency and for that reason obliged to obey the Constitution. And the words "shall not be infringed" are clearly to be found in that document.
 November 16, 2015 at 10:31am
Yes, failing to detect more than half of average “test objects” run through the system is an unacceptable level. This implies EITHER we experienced too many “false positives” (so the inspectors just let everything through) OR the screening tech & procedures are inadequate.
How about "many of the TSA people, especially in large cities, are disinterested, bored, and low IQ."
 November 16, 2015 at 10:28am
Without getting into a whole lot of statistical mumbo jumbo about Type I vs. Type II error, please just accept that NO inspection regimen is EVER going to be 100% foolproof (catching every real object while ignoring every false object).
On “the sweet spot” you have to balance the probability of letting a real object through against the probability of alerting over a false alarm. Too many false alarms and the inspectors let too many real objects through. Too few false alarms and you are letting too many real objects through.
Reality sucks sometimes. There is an acceptable (desirable actually) number of weapons we expect and want to get through the system. It means the system is working.
Now consider we inspect less than 5% of the freight containers coming into the US . . .

Whatever your personal opinion the law (up to and including the SCOTUS) is a bit different. The law holds that the popo universally have a duty to “shoot to stop” and that any attempt to “shoot to kill” is i instead “abuse under color of authority” (minimum) up to and including murder.
Non popo state and local laws vary; but the illegality of “shoot to kill” is pretty universal there as well.
Anytime you unholster your weapon make sure to keep two things in mind:
1. I feared for my life (or the life of an innocent); and
2. I just wanted the bad man to stop
Good advice. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER say “I shot to kill ” and NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give a statement to a police officer if you have been involved in a shooting where you shot and killed a criminal.
ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS tell the police you do not want to give a statement until you talk to your attorney.
I give the legal portion of concealed carry classes in my state. I believe it is imperative that everyone who carries should have an attorney picked out to represent you should you ever find yourself in a shooting. Call some attorneys once you get your permit. Find one that is familiar with defending people in such situations and carry his/her card with you. Should you ever find yourself in a situation, you know who to call. The LAST thing you want to do in such a situation is go through the “yellow pages” looking for an attorney. Believe me, if you are ever involved in a shooting, that is not the time to try and find a good attorney!

From a transportation safety standpoint, autonomous vehicles will be a complete disaster. This is just one example of why. Think about it: who will be responsible for programming the software with the appropriate “rules of the road” to follow? Are we really ready for every car on the road to drive like a 20 year old asian doctoral student?
Kidding aside, we have nowhere close to the infrastructure required to handle the extra load imposed by the inherent inefficiencies of any more “ignobots” mindlessly following old wives tales from DMV pamphlets and Drivers Ed materials. Imagine if you will what it would look like if everyone followed all the traffic rules mindlessly without exception . . . and that’s how the robots will NEED to be programmed or the lawyers will have a field day.
Consider two very simple situations: first, coming up the on ramp. At what speed do want the merging vehicle to be moving prior to the merge? 35? 45? Highway speed? Second situation: turning left on a two-lane. Do you hug the centerline so other traffic can pass you on the right? Or do you follow the “southern practice” of swinging wide right so as to block your lane of traffic from passing you?
Good luck coming up with “robots rules of order” flexible enough so that we can enjoy BOTH safety and efficiency. Ain’t never going to happen.
Just think about the problem of identifying WHO to sue after every accident. The auto maker? The software company? The owner of the vehicle?
a proper merge into highway traffic is done at the -same- speed the thru traffic is moving. it's supposed to be done like any ordinary lane change. That is WHY there's a long acceleration lane,for you to get up to highway speed BEFORE you try to change lanes.
it's a HAZARD to merge at lower speeds. (and MFFY)
it makes thru traffic brake or have to change lanes to avoid rear-ending you.
This is one of my major peeves about drivers.
Dangerous idiots who sloth up the on ramp,and then try to merge into traffic that's moving 30 MPH faster than them.

The toolmark side of case analysis is less reliable than the analysis of rifling. Case markings can narrow it down (usually) to make and model but not even close for serial number. As to recovered human fingerprints, this tech has been around for a while and has its own problems; mainly due to only partial prints being recovered (from part of thumb and part of forefinger). Also if the perp didn’t handle the case after ejection then the temps involved burn off some of the print, reducing effective capture even more. Partial print pattern matching (using statistical modeling) will then be applied . . . not very reliable either. To make this work we would have to implement tagging of all cartridges and reloading components to be maintained in a federal database. Not firearm registration, but cartridge/bullet/case registration and tracking. Might even be legal. Not really feasible though- talk about “Big Data!”
 November 11, 2015 at 11:02am
Okay, FIRST OF ALL the so-called “science” of toolmark identification (“ballistic matching”) is borderline fraudulent. Cases relying on this evidence are getting tossed out in the last decade or so because it just flat out isn’t reliable. “False Positives” (claiming a match where none exists) is rampant; well beyond the rate of “False Negatives” (missing a match that should have been made).
Both types of error around the 50% level. Worse than “lie detector” evidence (which is not allowed in many cases anymore either).
“An alarming number of bogus matches” well yeah- as expected by ANYBODY who understands the reliability issues with toolmark identification. “Barrel rifling on the bullet” YGBSM!?!?!?!
Honor: Interesting insights. Are you aware of the latest forensic science respective to fired shell casings? It's still being hammered through codification and hasn't achieved the prominence of long standing fingerprints but an English scientist has discovered how to "lift" prints off an expended shell casing. It's a pretty neat trick. He runs an electrical charge through a fired casing covered in some sort of carbon coating. Heretofore, a fired casing burned off any prior prints.

Goodness gracious Blaze fix the headline! What, you hire the people who write Palestinian press releases?
The US GI was killed IN the attack. He was killed DURING the attack.
On what planet was he killed BY the attack?

Okay, so who used the word “tenants” instead of “tenets?”
Was it Dr. Carson, a man smart enough to operate on the brains of children?
Or was it the journalism major, expert in english and grammar who HAS ONE JOB TO DO, THE ACCURATE TRANSMISSION OF FACTUAL INFORMATION?
It's a typo, like everyone including you does it all the times. Nothing to get bent out of shape over it. Dr. Carson's message came pretty clear overall.
Yes, so-called 'journalism'
Used to be 'who, what, where, when & how?'
Now it's 13th grade English.

Such an obvious trial run. He didn’t build the clock- he bought a radio shack clock (Micronta motherboard) and just took the guts out and re-installed them in a sketchy case. He insisted on plugging it in in a class lab where it “blinked and beeped” with a countdown timer display. He REFUSED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS when asked by school authorities to explain . . . and precipitated the LEOs being called. And then refused to cooperate with the LEOs until he got all the cell camera footage he needed.
The word “obliviot” is an apt one here. “Brainz” indeed.
 September 20, 2015 at 7:25am
Toolmark identificatin is notoriously unreliable. Hope they have a lot more than just a “match” to the gun.
In double blind studies with sequentially numbered barrels, “experts” mis-identify more times than they correctly identify.
Junk science people. Any good defense attorney with access to peer-reviewed scientific studies on so-called “ballistic matching” will tear that crap apart. And DNA? Of course his DNA is on the weapon OJ. HE USED TO OWN IT! What about all the other DNA found on the gun? Have they identified EVERYBODY who EVER handled the gun? Nope.

Actually, you are confusing Trump with our current socialist meme about the evil “man keeping you down.”
Trump is actually pretty much universally loved and respected by his employees. His generosity to those harmed by cold business decisions is PERSONAL (like writing big checks from his personal bank account to those laid off to save the company) and not ******** like the typical progressive redistributive “chairty through taxation” and “crony socialism” nonsense.
So did your shop steward tell you to post this Komrade?
Aside from the fact that their backgrounds, world views, values, and capabilities are totaly different- 180 degrees apart from each other actually (hmmm “wealth creator” and “wealth redistributor” are pretty much the same thing? “Builder” and “Destroyer” are the same, right?).
Yeah, other than being completely WRONG I guess you have a point . . .

I feel for this mans loss. To lose a child is the most unimaginable horror. In his grief, however, he is misunderstanding WHY his daughters life was taken.
Louis Farrakhan. Jesse Jackson. Al Sharpton. Cornell West. The leadership of the “racial grievance industry” put the evil in that murderers heart. For generations, people of color have been told that every misfortune of a normal life (and, not for nothing, bad personal choices and a dysfunctional culture) is the result of “Racism.” Hit a redlight? Racism. Bad SAT scores? Racism. Arrested for shoplifting? Racism. Low FICO score? Racism. Bad GPA? Racism. Burned your toast? Racism. People of color- especially urban youth- are Americas Palestinians.
Next up- suicide vests, mortar attacks on schools and churches, and roadside IEDs. No amount of forgiveness and preferential treatment will ever be enough to compensate for constant, daily, drip drip drip of hate.

The next president is going to be Jim Webb. All else is a side show. Webb is the perfect Manchurian Candidate; Soros and the CPUSA/DNC leadership know they turned up the frog water just a mite too fast. Webb is the “operational pause” needed to consolidate their gains.
The communist leadership might be delusional when it comes to their platform, but they play to win.
