Updated 6:01 p.m. |

For all practical purposes, a federal judge’s weekend ruling that overturned local laws prohibiting District of Columbia residents from carrying guns outside of their homes has opened the door for non-residents to tote handguns into the city and has made it potentially easier for members and staffers to transport firearms across the District to the Capitol.

D.C. police have been ordered not to arrest people for carrying pistols and deadly weapons in public. Washingtonians can still face criminal charges for carrying unregistered firearms and ammunition, but the millions of people who visit the nation’s capital are exempt from those provisions under an order from Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier. The chief’s guidance effectively put the District’s firearm regulations, at least for non-residents, on a par with the most permissive gun jurisdictions in the country. D.C. police got additional guidance from Lanier on Monday afternoon. She clarified that the ruling applies only to handguns, not long guns or shotguns that are still illegal, and that committing crimes with handguns remains illegal.

For non-residents, legal possession of a handgun in D.C. is based on the laws of their home jurisdiction, meaning D.C. police will be responsible for knowing and enforcing licensing and permitting restrictions from around the country. Lanier noted that additional information on gun laws in other states will be forthcoming and said that in the meantime, officers can call a 24-hour information line.

Lanier’s orders came in response to Judge Frederick Scullin Jr.’s July 26 ruling in Palmer v. District of Columbia that D.C.’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional. In the 19-page decision, Scullin wrote that he was stopping enforcement of the law “unless and until” the city adopted a constitutionally valid licensing mechanism.

In her follow-up guidance to officers, Lanier nodded to the confusion. “Unfortunately, this ruling has left many unanswered legal questions that are currently being reviewed by the [Office of the Attorney General],” she stated.

Federal laws and a portion of D.C. code still prohibit people from carrying weapons on Capitol grounds, according to Capitol Police spokeswoman Lt. Kimberly Schneider. But members and staffers already have weapons privileges for the Capitol campus dating back decades.

Although the D.C. prohibition against firearms was put into place in 1975, members of Congress and their staffs have the legal right to bear arms on the Hill. Capitol Police Board regulations established in 1967 permit members and their aides to transport licensed firearms on the Capitol grounds in the course of carrying out their official duties, provided the weapons are “unloaded and securely wrapped.”

Although the regulations expressly prohibit weapons on the floor of either chamber, as well as in the adjacent lobbies, cloakrooms and galleries, individual members  can “maintain firearms within the confines of [their] office.”

Before Lanier issued her order on Sunday, members and aides might have had to violate District law to transport a handgun to the Hill.

“Easing gun restrictions in the District of Columbia whether by court ruling or by regulation, certainly eases the way weapons are transported through the District,” said a former high-ranking Capitol Hill law enforcement official who spoke on background about the potential impact of the law.

On Monday afternoon, D.C. Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan filed a motion to stay the effectiveness of the opinion.

Alan Gura, the lawyer who argued against D.C.’s gun law on behalf of the nonprofit Second Amendment Foundation, said the case had nothing to do with the Hill, but he expects members of Congress will be playing close attention to the outcome.

“As part-time residents of the District of Columbia,” Gura told CQ Roll Call, members can now enjoy “a greater measure of freedom in their lives,” thanks to the ruling.

The Supreme Court’s 5-4 District of Columbia v. Heller decision made clear that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to gun ownership within the home. It also recognized that guns may be banned or controlled in certain “sensitive places,” including schools and government buildings.

Gura thinks a legal challenge to the federal and local laws prohibiting people from carrying guns on the Capitol grounds would be “far-fetched” under the Heller precedent and said it wasn’t a case he would argue.

Republicans in Congress have tried to overturn the city’s gun laws, to the outrage of locally elected officials.

D.C. Councilmember David Catania, a mayoral candidate running as an independent, said in a statement that strong gun control laws are critical to the District’s public safety, “a fact supported by the ban on possessing guns in federal buildings, on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, and Congressional office buildings.”

“Having more guns on our streets does not make us safer and a rushed roll back of our laws will only result in confusion and create additional challenges for law enforcement in the District,” he said. “Once again, the democratic will of District residents and their elected leadership is being marginalized and threatened by those who know little about our city and the nearly 650,000 people who call it home.”

Democratic mayoral nominee Muriel Bowser, who represents Ward 4 on the D.C. Council, said the ruling was “troubling and poses a serious threat to public safety in the District of Columbia” and vowed to fight for gun safety legislation.

In the wake of the ruling, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., chided Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., for his attempt to roll back gun laws in the District.

“With two people arrested in the last two weeks for bringing guns into the Capitol complex, both of whom were charged under D.C.’s carry law, Representative Massie can no longer hide behind that D.C. law,” she said in a statement. “The only thing standing between guns and the Capitol now is a federal law. Will Rep. Massie be consistent and finally try to overturn a law he has legitimate, direct jurisdiction over?”

Norton said she expects the District to appeal the decision, which goes beyond what the Supreme Court has held. The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has upheld the constitutionality of three of the District’s four major gun laws, she pointed out.

Massie told CQ Roll Call he was encouraged by the judge’s decision.

“In fact, his ruling strikes down a provision of the DC Firearms Registration Amendment Act of 2008, which I specifically referenced in the text of my successful amendment on July 16th,” Massie said in an email. “Clearly, Ms. Norton and the Mayor missed the mark when they asserted that my legislative effort to restore a fundamental human right was an overextension of congressional authority.”

He cited Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution as evidence of authority over D.C.’s legislative matters, and said the ruling “re-affirmed my assertion that the peoples’ right to keep and bear arms cannot be denied by any locality or state.”

the weapons are “unloaded and securely wrapped.”
If wrapped with a securely attached handle, the bundle will make a more effective club.

Catania - ...strong gun control laws are critical to the District’s public safety, “a fact supported by the ban on possessing guns in federal buildings, on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, and Congressional office buildings.”
A fact borne out by the lack of murders in the Capitol building.
(other crimes are on the increase, however)

In my not so humble opinion, the primary reason for the banning of guns in Washington, DC is to keep the citizens there from using them on various and sundry elected politicians, who shall remain nameless for obvious reasons. (They know who they are.)

The Morning Girl

via Tommy Lee Smith


Picked up my fixed Quad Core from Computer Geek JW this morning, and am now waiting for my new disk drive to get here.  JW also donated a Windows 7 Pro install disk, so woot-woo. 

I know what you're saying, "Whoa Rodge, we sure do miss reading in detail about your computer woes, and how they've been fkng you over lately.   Can't you at least find a few minutes to tell us more?"  Well, okay. I haven't let moss grow under me old mouse pad this past month.

First I bought MoSup a HP Chrome Book (recon from Woot. $200).  That thing was heavier than a granite bowling ball, but the 14" Way Hi_Def screen was awesome.  I figured it out, loaded it with stuff MoSup likes and she actually quite liked it.  Then morning came and it wouldn't start.  HP suggested that I open it up and do things with the drive, etc.; I sent it back to Woot.

Then I bought her a HP Pavilion 23-b010 All-in-One Desktop PC (recon from Woot for $300).  The 23 inch screen impressed her, but at this point she was tired of it all.  She has her desktop, a gen 1 iPad, and a Kindle.  She could prolly live with just the Pad and Kindle.  I don't know if I'll send it back yet. 

I will say that Window's 8 is a revelation.  Total departure from anything MS has put out before.  What they're doing is following the Apple template (where you have to have a MS Store ID to ad apps.  I sort of like it. 

What I don't like is the 1.3Gb processor (not replaceable)  and 4 GB ram (will take 16).  What I really don't like is the flimsy burner drive that took a full hour to install PS Pro X3.  Plus,  I don't really know what to do with it.  If I was a bachelor I'd leave it on the kitchen table, where it is now, and not have anyone complaing that we have too many computers in too many places. 

Oh,  one more thing. That "Morning Girl" above?  I truly admire her humor, her sense of adventure, and her "don't give me that liberal crap" spirit (all of which I sense).  But, this girl, Laura Dekker.   HFS!  She sailed a 42 foot boot around the globe at age 14 (youngest person ever to do that).  A snip of the  fascinating documentary of that adventure is here;  and full on NetFlix.

Gee, Rodge, I did a dual installation of Linux MINT 17 alongside a Vista OS (just in case) and I'll NEVER go back to Windows again. SWMBO's laptop has Windows 8 on it and she's had nothing but trouble.

Libre Office, Banshee, and all the other free software out there just kicks Bill Gates in the 'nads.

Thanks, Rodge, for giving me the confidence to do this. I figured if you could do it it was so easy a caveman could do it.

The history of this publication goes back further than any of us will remember….Throughout the history of this book, it has been called many different things, ranging from Band Bible, Song Publication, and even The Unofficial OSUMB Handbook. The songs in this “item that does not exist” have been passed down from generation to generation during I-dots, bus trips, Beer Busts, and the occasional bored sober free time….Take it with you on trips and to parties….But never leave this out of your sight.

Trip Tic Multiple witnesses stated that a special newsletter named “Trip Tic” was produced by an anonymous member for away game trips. Two copies of the newsletter were distributed to each marching row. According to most witnesses, this publication included disparaging information about members and sexually explicit content, including sexual activities of members. Two witnesses stated that some issues included females and males listed by attractiveness ratings. One witness stated that an issue included a “Marry, Fuck, Kill” list.
EXCERPTS

Boner Question: List all the Members of Row in descending order from deepest box to largest penis. Explain your reasoning in 2 to 3 sentences.

Calculate in days, hours, minutes, and seconds (all separately) the
countdown to the M*ch*gan game.

If you were gay (or straight if you are already gay) who in the band would you be gay (or straight) with? Why?

Write a short story using the following words/phrases:
BOX, hammy situation, lettuce, navy hymn, virgin, brown noise, snookie, special place, Aahsome, syphilis, cumblood, bale of hay, flash mob, Elvis, “Give ‘em Hell!”, to be late…, Jerry Sandusky, twat, face

Please draw the female reproductive organs with arrows detailing what each part is used for. Be as clear as possible

Create and draw a sex position for fat people. Use detailed images
(including facial expressions), words (sound efects) descriptions, etc. There should be steps to the process, as if teaching someone your sex position.



As a result of this INVESTIGATION REPORT / Complaint against Jonathan Waters, Director of the OSU Marching Band - he was fired. 

In addition, the handbook offers a very representative selection of bawdy  drinking songs, like; My Grandfathers Cock (Tune My Grandfathers Clock), Ten Tons of Titty (Tune These Things Remind Me of You), Clitoris (Tune: Oscar Meyer Theme), and On the Floor Again (Tune: On the Road Again)

The Terps certainly have their work cut out for them, trying to live up to this high standard.  And we thought the UVA pep band was déclassé?

As a fan of a B1G rival to osu, I will concur with Ralph Gizzip. Their band is freaking talented as hell. They do the most incredibly tough halftime shows and other bands, though very good in their own right, don't come close. This is the only area I will ever compliment the enemy on and it is richly deserved.

Never been any different there... My wife tried to get in back in the mid-70s and was directly told "you can sign up and come to class but you WILL be failed as we DO NOT allow women into the OSU marching band." She played sousaphone and instrument storage was in the basement but only the men were given keys to the elevator requiring carrying them up 4 flights of stairs to the practice room.

The hierarchy of the band were always dicks.

What kind of training would the Feds give them?
The Feds will not let this happen without formal training because they might start apprehending members of the officially sanctioned cartel smuggling operation. Without training they very well might arrest the wrong drug smugglers, thereby directly affecting the Governments Bottom Line, and The War on Drugs in a negative way for Government at all Levels.
Got it?

Hmmmm.......I might be the only one on this thread that might agree with the Slimes, but for completely different reasons.
I'm not worried about "potentially fatal encounters with illegals"...I'm thinking more along the lines of a bad precedent being set. Namely, the same argument for deploying troops along the border of TX can (and would, do you trust Gov. 'Moonbeam' Brown?) be used by other state governors to deploy troops against protesters at "Send the @$#@$@ illegals home" rallies.
You're absolutely correct on the ROE. That'll tell the tale.
Truly, we're living in interesting times.

Last time I looked, Nat'l Guard belonged to the governors, until and unless they are federalized.
Guardsmen are trained, by the same folks who train the Regular forces; many Guard units are combat veterans of the WOT.
As to the second comment, Guard troops have been deployed by State and Fed govt against rioters - Watts, Detroit, MLK riots, peace marches in the 60's.
What's the big deal? Because a Republican governor is doing it?
I'm sure the NYT would think it just fine if Moonbeam sicced them on a Tea Party meeting.

FWIW, some think posse comitatus prevents the Guard from doing anything more than admin tasks like in the last Guard border callup, where the Guard was not armed and had no arrest powers.
I was in the Washington DC NG '67-70, and since it was the NG of a Federal District, we were in fact Federal troops.
We were called up for state occasions and also for every riot and peace demonstration that hit DC in that period.
For all the riots and peace demos:
1. We were armed to the teeth, although newspapers tried to infer we were not, and we had ROE's that allowed lethal force under certain conditions, and
2. We were sworn by the mayor of DC as Special Police and had arrest powers.
Unless Buraq federalizes the Texas Guard, Gov Perry, as their commander, can allow them to be armed and can give them arrest powers assuming there's no conflict in Texas law.
Lt. Col. Gen. Tailgunner dick

Without federal training how will they know the correct way to change shitty diapers on the little illegals?
 
~
#####
Posse comitatus only applies to troops in federal status (i.e., acting under Title 10 U.S.C.) The National Guard, when called up by a governor, falls under Title 32, and since they're not federalized, posse comitatus does not apply. They then can assume whatever duties the governor gives them, including law enforcement. However, if the Feds activate the Guard, then they're operating under Title 10, and posse comitatus applies. They cannot do law enforcement directly, but they can provide support to law enforcement (logistics, communications, etc.).

Then there's the money angle. If a governor calls out the Guard, the state has to pay for them. That gets pricey in a hurry. That's why Gov. Perry has been after Obama to call up the Guard -- so the Feds pick up the tab.

Alex Kozinski, chief judge of the Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals, calls the current system "inherently flawed" and says states that want to execute inmates should return to more "primitive—and foolproof—methods" of execution, NBC reports. "The guillotine is probably best but seems inconsistent with our national ethos," he writes. "And the electric chair, hanging, and the gas chamber are each subject to occasional mishaps. The firing squad strikes me as the most promising. Eight or 10 large-caliber rifle bullets fired at close range can inflict massive damage, causing instant death every time." [Full]


Actually, the Brits - when they were at the top of their game - probably had the best idea.

My druthers for punishment of heinous crimes such as rape, murder, arson resulting in death, terrorism, and similar or related assaults on people who did not deserve disfiguration, debilitation, or death has always included a proviso by which the victim(s) or NOK(s) of the victim(s) figure significantly into the time, place, and manner of the just desserts.

I would have no objection to allowing the spouse, parent, child, or sibling of a murder victim choose and carry out the punishment by whatever means seems most appropriate.

If the NOK or victim elects NOT to participate in inflicting pain or dismemberment or death upon a perpetrator, volunteers should be sought from the general public. I'm fairly certain that our prison systems can find adequate numbers of sociopaths or psychopaths to bludgeon assholes to death or surgically remove the tallywhackers of rapists with claw hammers or eviscerate terrorists with a circular saw.

You're hinting at a few important societal issues here, Rodge. Let's lay them on the table.

Executions are essential, because some people are too dangerous to be set loose in public. Caging humans for life is inhumane and far more savage than imposing a quick death.

Executions should never be cloaked. Unless they are staged as an educational public spectacle, the decades of effort and expense are all but wasted. There are no privacy issues because the dead guy has no further concerns about his privacy. This applies to lesser crimes as well. For example, when police attempt to snatch a camera, they should be given one free. And be forced to eat the entire device in the public square. Naturally some long-term dental problems and short-term breathing problems may ensue. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

Of course there will always be problems with trying to perform executions by non-lethal drugs. So let's just stop using narcotics that are designed to produce blissful unconsciousness rather than death.

Firing squads are always better guillotine executions: More noise and less mess. Plus, government employees get confused keeping the right heads and bodies together for internment. Firing squads also offer much more opportunity for public involvement. Never a shortage of volunteers.

Even with volunteers, I feel there are moral and practical issues with assigning members of the public a duty to kill. Instead, we should put this task to the condemned themselves. Once sealed into an execution chamber, they should be given all the time they need to beg God's forgiveness and push their own button. Automatic in situ cremation would be a nice feature to remove any concerns about efficacy of the execution.

Opponents of the Death Penalty make the valid point that execution is often falsely applied and uncorrectable. We must face this criticism squarely. Any policeman or prosecutor who manufactures false evidence or withholds exculpatory evidence contributing to an unjust execution is a 1st degree murderer and should be executed too. If they can't bear that standard of performance, they can get a real job.

#####
I say we hang the perp (after being found guilty by a jury of his peers) by his ankles. Then, give all the NOKs fungo bats and let them have at it. If there are no NOKs, then randomly select half a dozen citizens down at the welfare office waiting for their SNAP cards to do their duty. Crime rates would drop overnight and the police could enjoy their doughnuts at Dunkin's in peace.
 
~
#####
In a perfect world, criminals would be punished for their capitol crime during the attempt.

Since the world isn't perfect, we make do, and the best methods of a quick, painless execution - such as dropping a 70 ton block of concrete on a criminal - are usually too messy for polite folks to witness.
 
~
#####
Fly the condemned 400 miles offshore, dump them off the ramp with parachute, then it's up to nature. No killing, no witnesses, no Monday morning quarterbacking about how long or how botched the execution was. Condemned who are realists will decline the parachute.
Progs can't object because it's recycling at its best; ashes to ashes, dust to fish food.

In one of Robert Heinlein's books, he wrote of a society that punished wrong-doers with a judicial infliction of EXACTLY the same crime they had committed. The example given was a man who had hit a pedestrian, causing the necessary amputation of one leg. The state had him laid out on the same stretch of highway, a car driven over his leg, made him lay there the same amount of time the victim had, and then took him to hospital to have his leg amputated. I daresay this would deter quite a number of crimes if this was applied here.

I have trouble feeling sorry for these guys who undergo an execution that is somehow "botched". After all, they had no sympathy for their victims while they were killing him or her or them. If those criminals and their apologist want sympathy, they can find it in their Funk and Wagnall's between shit and syphilis.

After the Civil War, Arkansas had a judge named Isaac Parker, aka "The Hanging Judge". If he sentenced someone to death, usually withing 24 to 48 hours later, that guy was swinging at the end of a rope. No endless appeals, no whining by bleeding heart liberals, no bullshit letters in the newspapers about what a nice guy he is, and, for damn sure, no 25 years after conviction and sentencing to the actual execution of lying around living off the taxpayer in relative comfort. Juts a short walk from the courtroom to the gallows. That should be the norm today.

Old testament (and present day middle east) stonings were done so that no single member of the community could be singled out as the executioner. No rocks bigger than a fist, etc so the whole community had to participate and the whole community was the executioner. No angst over who dealt the fatal blow because everybody contributed. If the crime was a threat to society, society dealt the punishment.

Executing or jailing someone who is innocent is always a risk.

I think that our country has a very good track record on not making mistakes.

Granted, there have been some, but there have also been innumerable instances of guilty parties walking free due to lack of admissable evidence.

And no one ever, ever seems to worry about families who have received no justice, after many years, with respect to their loved ones who were murdered.

I like Judge Kozinski - I see him at Federalist Society meetings when I can muster up the funds to attend them.

Justice Roberts is a smart guy. Is it possible he is smart enough to have seen this coming? And to allow ObamaCare to annihilate itself? While he has absolute deniability of political involvement?

That would be an epic story. Wait ... with millions of looters losing their subsidies and now locked into confiscatory premiums, it's really an epic comedy.

Ok, I admit I only crawl out from under my rock once a week to comment, but..

Am I the only one wondering what the hell is so fascinating on the front of that women that has men, women, and children staring and whipping out cameras? The all seem focused on her mid-section..

My bet this is some vegan protester with "I Don't Eat Meat" painted on her front. It demands a rollover durnit!

"Oh my God I'm a republic**t"



On Sunday's episode, as Breitbart TV explained, two of the characters crashed a Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fundraiser at the George W. Bush Presidential Library that they said only lets in "a**sholes." The fundraiser ended up turning into a bloodbath:
While HBO's Award winning "True Blood" a popular vampire drama has had a long-running narrative with the bad guys cast as southern conservative politicians, last night's episode took it a step farther, calling Ted Cruz supporters a**holes and offensively referring to conservative woman in eveningware as "republic**ts"

When two of the main characters, vampires Eric Northman and Pam De Beaufort, are planning to crash a fictional fundraiser for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) held at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas they are warned “They only let in a**holes.

While dressing for the event in cowboy hats and Western evening attire Pam De Beaufort says "Oh my God I'm a republic**t"

And finally De Beaufort enters the gala proclaiming "Of all the horrible things I've seen in the last hundred years this could be the most disturbing."

[SARAH PALIN DRIVES STAKE THROUGH HEART OF 'TRUE BLOOD' PRODUCERS]

HBO is owned by Time Warner, and is a flagship Progressive Politics media laboratory.  Lefties fired from their alphabet channel venue, because of outrageous leftist screed,  are routinely picked up and nourished by this cable channel Bryant Gumbel, Bill Maher, et.al. But guess what? Pam De Beaufort will find this terrifyingly disturbing.

  1. Financial Times‎ - by John Gapper ‎ - 2 hours ago

At any rate, I've been looking to cancel my Verizon cable premium channels, and this will get me off my duff.  By the by, look for Dems in congress to try and block Murdoch's takeover of TW.  Losing control of media messaging is truly a stake in their hearts.

Everyone knows that vampires can't be Republicans. The dead always vote for Democrats.

Hmmm, considering that the stock holders in Time Warner, esp. the institutional investors, are probably not all that thrilled with the decline in advertising revenue there is probably some puckering in the pants in Hollywood.

So what is a Republic**t? I find it hard to believe that Sarah Palin would associate herself with the word "cunt" - since Bill Maher said "there is no other word for her" during one of his routines in 2011.

To counter this, I would call Pelosi, Mooshell, Debbie Whatser name Schultz, etc., as Denoc**ts.
Equal billing, dontcha know.

I'm working on finally finishing the last season of "The Supranos". Once that's done, I don't see much use to keep HBO.

Talk about politically correct. I'm on Episode 9 and I can't believe they haven't found and killed Vito yet.. Gay mafia indeed.. No, don't tell me how it ends.

The Sopranos is still running? Srlsy. I had no idea. They lost me during one of the, seemingly yearly, salary demand delays, and the entire cast -- the late Gandolf included-- began with the Hollywood political posturing.

Rodger - watching it on Xfinity's TV To Go app... all the series is still there to watch.. as long as you are a HBO subscriber. I never watched it when it first ran.

Canceled HBO right after the Game of Thrones season ended. Will re-up before the next season starts.

Just finishing up season 5 of the Sopranos on Amazon Prime. Don't need HBO at all - right now.
