"Justice never sleeps…. not even on a Saturday afternoon, when this opinion (Palmer v. D.C) was just handed down.

'In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional. Accordingly, the Court grants Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and enjoins Defendants from enforcing the home limitations of D.C. Code § 7-2502.02(a)(4) and enforcing D.C. Code § 22-4504(a) unless and until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.4 Furthermore, this injunction prohibits the District from completely banning the carrying of handguns in public for self-defense by otherwise qualified non-residents based solely on the fact that they are not residents of the District.'

In 2012, I won Moore v. Madigan, 702 F.3d 933 (7th Cir. 2012), which struck down Illinois total ban on the carrying of defensive handguns outside the home. With this decision in Palmer, the nation’s last explicit ban of the right to bear arms has bitten the dust. Obviously, the carrying of handguns for self-defense can be regulated. Exactly how is a topic of severe and serious debate, and courts should enforce constitutional limitations on such regulation should the government opt to regulate. But totally banning a right literally spelled out in the Bill of Rights isn’t going to fly. My deepest thanks to the Second Amendment Foundation for making this victory possible and to my clients for hanging in there. Congratulations Americans, your capital is not a constitution-free zone."

Not surprised that they think may-issue is going to fit the bill for emergency legislation, especially when the council is already talking about stomping over the privacy of permit holders'. The flippancy with which they speak makes me feel very upset. We will leave it at that. This is exactly what Alan Gura is expecting and I'm sure he'll have something to say on the matter, and I bet the judge will too.

Forty "rioters" were killed in China's Xinjiang region following a series of explosions last Sunday, the regional government has said after a four-day news blackout.

Residents on Friday described heavy security in place days after the incidents - the worst incident of violence in months in Xinjiang.

Xinjiang, a resource-rich region in China's far west which abuts Central Asia, is home to about 10 million Uighur Muslims, who mostly follow Sunni Islam.

Six civilians, two police officers and two auxiliary police were also killed in the attacks in Xinjiang's Luntai county, with 54 civilians injured, the regional government's news portal Tianshan said late on Thursday.

Two "rioters" were captured, it added, while the main suspect, whose name was given as Mamat Tursun, was killed.

Chinese state media had previously only stated that two people had been killed in the incident.

The ruling Communist Party tightly restricts access to the region, and information is difficult to independently verify.

Such a delay in the release of details is not uncommon.

What's your opinion on the West Lothian Question? I think it's sort of absurd for N. Ireland, Scotland and Wales to have parliaments and devolved powers without a similar status for England. If Britain is heading in a more federalist direction (as Cameron's statements tentatively indicate) then it's going to be increasingly difficult to defend the status quo for England.

Well for me we are doing it backwards. If I'm honest I lean towards Powellism on this, we shouldn't have devolved power to the nation's as we did. Far better yo give power to the existing local government especially when combined with regional growth funds.

As for the situation now? Removing Scottish MPs would bring the question of government into question. The Labourites need Scotland's MPs to give them a majority. That then means that we may have a situation with a Lab govt on thw UK stage with a minority on English issues. That would affect the budgets beimg passed and social issues etc. To be honest I think the best option may be a English parliament based in either Birmingham or a northern city (Hull/York/Manchester) etc. With similar devolved power to the rest of the regions. To be honest we need to find a middle way between devolved power but keeping UK primacy. We are no closer to solving Enoch's questions now than we are when he asked it 40 years ago.

I do think a federal settlement is the way forward. Te devolution genie is out of the bottle. We can't go back to just having the one UK parliament. The only sensible solution I think is an English parliament for England. And maybe one for Cornwall as well if they want to be separate from England.

Cornwall has no industry really... its just too much money to have a separate assembly for every distinctive region.

Yorkshire want one. Hell if they get one you can bet us Midlanders will want one too. Bah, we should axe the devolved parliaments and give more power to councils, cheaper and gets the same results.

fun fact I heard today that I thought people may like. Maggie Thatcher spent more on the NHS in real terms than Red Ed is planning in his manifesto. Hows that for irony.

Sounds like a "I thought they were criminals breaking in" defense to me. So where are you getting the basis of your inference?

Of course, this is the kind of person yall want to defend:
>A family member told police Guy hit her in the face and twisted her arm behind her back, according to an arrest affidavit. She also said Guy took her phone away and threw it on the ground while she was calling 911. Guy was charged with assault with bodily injury to a family member and interfering with an emergency call.

Maybe you're insulated but you aren't comparing it to the surrounding real estate either. Killeen manages to have 2-3 SWAT activations a month, where the rest of the county and Copperas Cove get 1-2 a year. No, compared to Chicago or Detroit that's nothing, but it's a relative shithole. Admittedly my view is also skewed because I see every damn call that happens out there and you only see news blurbs if it makes it that far and you happen to be paying attention.

There's a good reason I live on the black dirt side of the county and not in the hills.

Just because you've lived there, does not mean you are going to notice problems.

The town were I grew up had (several years prior to my arrival) a bunch of asian gangs that popped up after it imported a few loads of refugees. While you would be hard pressed to see a clear rise in the murder statistics, there are certain neighborhoods where the people who have lived their a few decades can tell you very consistent stories about where the prostitute houses where, who got killed, where the drugs were sold. Just because someone got murdered, doesn't mean they'll pad the numbers of a government database for an internet private eye to point his finger at. And the people in the neighborhoods where the gangs haven't set up shop may have no idea about what goes on a street over.

It ended after the police conducted two stings that managed to net most of the fuckwits, who were subsequently jailed and deported.
Mostly ended anyways. Before I left the town, another whorehouse/drugden was raided, which was incidentally next to my favorite restaurant. I had walked and stared at the place dozens of times. Never suspected a fucking thing.

She also said Guy took her phone away and threw it on the ground while she was calling 911. Guy was charged with assault with bodily injury to a family member and interfering with an emergency call.

>Court records show Guy and his attorney at the time, Dan Corbin, accepted a plea deal in November 2012. Guy pleaded guilty to interfering with an emergency call and received a sentence of 40 days in Bell County Jail and $734 in fines and court costs. The assault charge was dismissed.

Dander decided to leave off the part of the story where the assault charge was dismissed. I copy pasted that from directly below the greentext he posted on the article we both apparently read. Kind of an important detail to intentionally omit.

Even if he is a shit bag he does not deserve to be executed just because the local PD can't execute a search warrant correctly. For a situation that was dangerous enough to require climbing in through a window in the dark hours of the morning they sure didn't think before they acted. They stacked up so badly that one guy with a handgun hit all four of them and didn't get hit by any return fire at all. They tried to break in through a window like straight burglars. They didn't have control of a situation they created where a reasonable person would assume that they are not police officers.

I can't hold it against someone for giving the police the short end of the stick when they did absolutely everything to put them in that situation at all.

>The Secret Service on Saturday launched a security review to learn how a man carrying a knife was able to get inside the front door of the White House on Friday night after jumping a fence and sprinting more than 70 yards across the North Lawn — the first time that has ever happened.

>Within seconds, the man who his public defender said served three tours in Iraq — and relatives said served as a sniper — got to the front double doors of the North Portico, turned the brass knob and stepped inside the vestibule. There he was grabbed and subdued by an officer standing post inside the door. He had a folding knife with a 2 1 / 2-inch serrated blade.

>The success Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, had in breaching White House security Friday night — roughly 10 minutes after the president and his daughters lifted off the south grounds in his helicopter for Camp David — exposed new, worrisome gaps in the Secret Service’s extensive efforts to keep the first family safe and make the White House a “hard target.”

>The front door on the North Portico of the mansion was unlocked at the time. It is a frequently used door, just one flight of stairs away from the Obama’s living quarters, and until now, the Secret Service didn’t imagine an intruder could reach it.

>A trained attack dog — the Secret Service’s fail-safe measure for stopping intruders when officers cannot — was not released in this case. The reasons are under investigation.

>tl;dr apple screws over police state government and protects end user privacy with new mobile operating system

Apple said Wednesday night that it is making it impossible for the company to turn over data from most iPhones or iPads to police — even when they have a search warrant — taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user information.

The move, announced with the publication of a new privacy policy tied to the release of Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 8, amounts to an engineering solution to a legal quandary: Rather than comply with binding court orders, Apple has reworked its latest encryption in a way that prevents the company — or anyone but the device’s owner — from gaining access to the vast troves of user data typically stored on smartphones or tablet computers.

The key is the encryption that Apple mobile devices automatically put in place when a user selects a passcode, making it difficult for anyone who lacks that passcode to access the information within, including photos, e-mails and recordings. Apple once maintained the ability to unlock some content on devices for legally binding police requests but will no longer do so for iOS 8, it said in the new privacy policy.

“Unlike our competitors, Apple cannot bypass your passcode and therefore cannot access this data,” Apple said on its Web site. “So it’s not technically feasible for us to respond to government warrants for the extraction of this data from devices in their possession running iOS 8.”

As the new operating system becomes widely deployed over the next several weeks, the number of iPhones and iPads that Apple is capable of breaking into for police will steadily dwindle to the point where only devices several years old — and incapable of running iOS 8 — can be unlocked by Apple.

Apple will still have the ability — and the legal responsibility — to turn over user data stored elsewhere, such as in its iCloud service, which typically includes backups of photos, videos, e-mail communications, music collections and more. Users who want to prevent all forms of police access to their information will have to adjust settings in a way that blocks data from flowing to iCloud.

Apple’s new privacy policy comes less than five months after the Supreme Court ruled that police in most circumstances need a search warrant to collect information stored on phones. Apple’s action makes that distinction largely moot by depriving itself of the power to comply with search warrants for the contents of many of the phones it sells.

Nice! But I'm still skeptical about their claim.

I mean seriously, the NSA can squish their balls, and legally mandate them to install a super secret backdoor for official use to sell the product.

MFW smartphones are claimed to be secure.

Up until now Apple has had full control of any purchased iPhone, and every EULA said they could basically fuck with your info whenever they want
Decades after every other OS did it as a matter of course, they finally offer ownership

So headline should be
>Apple finally releases OS that the user can buy to own instead of leasing

Also
>Security experts generally consider Apple’s devices to be better protected against such attacks
>security breach after security breach
lol iCloud

>There are plenty of slim, concealable plate carriers. Actually you could just put a shirt over most plate carriers if you don't stick MOLLE shit all over it. It really isn't that bulky to just have a front and rear plate.

AKR confirmed for never having tried to conceal a plate carrier. There are plenty of slick carriers out there marketed as "lowpro" or "concealable" but none of them are really very concealable in real world conditions. Concealing flexible soft armor all day is bad enough, trying to hide thick, heavy, rigid plates is fucking terrible. Not to mention how uncomfortable that shit is.

AKR confirmed for never truly giving a fuck about concealing shit.

Anyone who knows what they're doing can spot at 100 paces concealed weapons, armor, and that certain way of carrying ones self and looking about.

I'll throw a shirt over my sidearm to please peasants and their town constables, but that isn't going to hide shit from anyone even remotely competent.

Those same peasants don't notice shit unless its shoved in their face, and they'll never pay you enough attention to notice some plates under your shirt more than they would soft panels.

I should add in case it's somehow a mystery, cops don't "conceal" their armor, everyone knows they're wearing it and its noticeable to anyone who stares hard enough at their collar line, or to a casual glance from a trained eye. They wear it under their shirt so they can open their pockets and display the insignia on their uniform shirt etc, as well as looking a little less threatening.

Can confirm. I remember the rolled eyes when I pointed out the muzzle of your Sig that was poking out from under your shirt.

By the way, I finally got a fairly decent holster for my Sig. Now, I need a permit.
