Interesting site to read.

Here's what I think should happen in the realm of gun control.

1. Universal Background Checks, all firearms, handguns and rifles, should go through an FFL dealer background check.

2. Safe storage laws in the home when children are present and meaningful penalties for negligent deaths as a result of non compliance of such laws.

3. Mandatory training for the lawful use of firearms before first purchase.

4. Beef up the BATFE to go after corrupt dealers and citizens.

5. Strict regulations for CCW, IE: rigorous training on the lawful use firearms for self defense and the consequences of using said firearms.

6. National registration with the caveat that the database can never be used for confiscation.

7. Mag limits of 10 for handguns and 30 for long rifles. What's good for the govt. should be good for private citizens.

8. Repeal of all SYG laws, Castle Doctrine laws are sufficient for citizens.

9. I'm always open to reasonable gun control laws.

Our 3 male Sparrows are starting to flutter their wings and prance

around our 1 female Sparrow, she's getting stressed out by all the attention of her suitors.
What to do, what to do?

This is to all the special members who have commented on the passing of our Piper,

A heartfelt thank you from myself and my heartbroken wife for the love and sympathy of this wonderful community.
You all have made Piper's passing a little bit easier by your support, especially for my wife, who dearly loved her Piper.
Again, thank you for the empathy and kindness shown towards my wife and I during this difficult time in our lives.

Just to let every one know, our 4 House Sparrows are doing great.

Piper, our little female Starling, passed away last night.

We found her on the bathroom floor weak and unable to move, wife wrapped her in a hand towel and we attempted to find help for her but the local vets refused to see her, wife held Piper until she passed away.
My wife is inconsolable as she hand raised all of our birds but Piper was her favorite.

RIP Piper, you will be missed.

N. Korea building missile launch pad capable of aiming at U.S.: report

By Alexander Smith, NBC News contributor

North Korea is improving one of its missile launch sites and may soon be able to fire rockets large enough to hit mainland United States, according to experts.

Recent satellite images appear to show that one of the country's launch stations has been modified to accommodate an intercontinental missile 25 percent larger than one it fired into space in Dec. 2012, according to a report by Johns Hopkins University’s U.S.-Korea Institute (USKI) published Wednesday

The report added that the launch pad, which could be ready as early as March, would allow for "a more robust rocket test program in the future involving larger space launch vehicles and road-mobile ballistic missiles able to attack targets in Northeast Asia and the United States."

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper warned the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday that North Korea had gone through with its threat to continue its nuclear weapons program, posing “a serious threat to the United States and to the security environment in East Asia.”

Not overly worried about this right now, their missiles have a very poor track record, but in the future....

DEVELOPING: NCSO sergeant busted in drug sting

http://pvtimes.com/news/developing-ncso-sergeant-busted-drug-sting.html

A Nye County Sheriff’s sergeant was ensnared in a drug sting and arrested over the weekend after a subordinate became suspicious of the superior officer’s insistence that he be the one to book a bottle of pills into evidence.

The subordinate alerted narcotics officers to the sergeant’s demands on Friday. The narcotics officers were able to inventory the pills before the subordinate handed them over to Sgt. Michael Horn to be booked into evidence.

Once the sergeant booked the pills, narcotics officers took them from the evidence room and recounted them. A total of 60 15 milligram morphine pills were missing. Sheriff Tony DeMeo was alerted to the situation at 11:35 p.m. Friday. By Saturday, police had search warrants for Horn’s person, his patrol car and his home.

When the search warrants were served, Horn happened to have just come back from a call to service at an elderly woman’s home; the sergeant allegedly coerced the woman to give him her pain medication.


This guy testified against people he busted and he's doing the same damn thing.
