Good for Magpul
Feb 27th, 2013 by Ken Hagler

Check out the Mag­pul on that one!.

Via Jerk­ing the Trig­ger, Mag­pul offers Col­orado law­mak­ers a part­ing shot…

Due to a bill cur­rent­ly mov­ing through the Col­orado leg­is­la­ture, there is the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Col­orado res­i­dents’ abil­i­ty to pur­chase stan­dard capac­i­ty mag­a­zi­nes will soon be infringed. Before that hap­pens, and Mag­pul is forced to leave the state in order to keep to our prin­ci­ples, we will be doing our best to get stan­dard capac­i­ty PMAGs into the hands of any Col­orado res­i­dent that wants them.

Ver­i­fied Col­orado res­i­dents will be able to pur­chase up to ten (10) stan­dard capac­i­ty AR/M4 mag­a­zi­nes direct­ly from Mag­pul, and will be given imme­di­ate flat-rate $5 ship­ping, bypass­ing our cur­rent order queue.

Our cus­tomers out­side of Col­orado, please know that our PMAG pro­duc­tion will con­tin­ue at an ever-increasing rate until we do relo­cate, ship­ments to our dis­trib­u­tors in oth­er states will con­tin­ue, and that we do not expect relo­ca­tion to sig­nif­i­cant­ly impact PMAG pro­duc­tion. We are also aware that Col­orado is not the only state with exist­ing or pend­ing mag­a­zine capac­i­ty restric­tions; we are work­ing on pro­grams for oth­er affect­ed states as well.

Yeah! The best activism is the kind that’s in your own inter­est.

[The Ulti­mate Answer to Kings]

I’m always hap­py to see peo­ple defy­ing tyran­ny. I don’t own any rifles that will take PMAGs, but if that changes I’ll cer­tain­ly give them my busi­ness.

Adden­dum: One Source Tac­ti­cal is now mak­ing a sim­i­lar offer.

Just say no to illegal searches

Enjoy This Mon­tage of Peo­ple Refus­ing to Coöper­ate with DHS Check­points.

Hat tip to TMan for post­ing this link. It was too fun to keep in
the com­ments for an 
unre­lat­ed post
on a dif­fer­ent form of abuse of pow­er. Here’s a
crew of folks refus­ing to sub­mit to ques­tion­ing at Depart­ment of
Home­land Secu­ri­ty immi­gra­tion check­points that aren’t actu­al­ly at
the bor­der (and one case of a dri­ver refus­ing to coöper­ate with one
of California’s pro­duce check­points as an employ­ee hilar­i­ous­ly
thinks he can make him leave the state).

[Hit and Run]

This is a great video! My favorite was the last clip, where the dri­ver starts ask­ing the Gestapo agent if he’s a cit­i­zen before he can get his inter­ro­ga­tion start­ed.

Dubious movie advertisement
Feb 25th, 2013 by Ken Hagler

I just saw a trail­er for a sci­ence fic­tion movie that didn’t look very good which con­tained a quote: “The Woody Allen of sci­ence fic­tion.”

That would prob­a­bly make for a bet­ter adver­tise­ment if I actu­al­ly liked the Woody Allen of Woody Allen.

Making fingerprint readers useful
Feb 25th, 2013 by Ken Hagler

Fin­ger­print Pur­chas­ing Tech­nol­o­gy Ensures Buy­er Has a Pulse. An anony­mous read­er writes “A small U.S. uni­ver­si­ty has come up with a nov­el solu­tion to reduce the pos­si­bil­i­ty of using a dead person’s hand to get past a fin­ger­print scan­ner through the use of hemo­glo­bin detec­tion. The device quick­ly checks the fin­ger­print and hemo­glo­bin ‘non-intrusively’ to ver­i­fy the iden­ti­ty and whether the indi­vid­u­al is alive. This field of research is called Biocryp­tol­ogy and seeks to ensure that bio­met­ric secu­ri­ty devices can’t be eas­i­ly bypassed.”[Search Slash­dot]

This is a good idea. Some years ago I had a Win­dows lap­top I used for work which had a fin­ger­print read­er that could be used in place of the stan­dard pass­word login, but I nev­er used it. I fig­ured that if some­one man­aged to steal my lap­top, I didn’t want to give them a rea­son to steal my fin­ger as well.

Unarmed offi­cer: “I’ve got a good mind to try to take you all back by force.”
Sergeant with rifle: “Good luck with that.”
