Mufflers for guns save your hearing, not criminals
The only thing a suppressor does is reduce the report of a gun being fired from something that will damage your hearing permanently to something that will damage your hearing temporarily. OSHA regulations force people to wear hearing protection inside computer labs because of the noise of the fans keeping the computers cool; why should the noise of a firearm going off be any different?
Even California is being forced to admit they have a voter fraud problem.
Politics -- voting and elections -- are a system that controls billions of dollars in public funds that is ripe for the taking. Of course the unscrupulous will look for ways to cheat. We need to take reasonable measures to secure our elections systems (voter id being one of them, and cleaning the voter rolls being another). Until we do, politicians will find ways to game the system.
We don't need more refugees like this. That means we need to stop everyone at the border and check their backgrounds, reject those we can't check, and reject those whose only claim to refugee status is lack of economic opportunity or some other purely personal problem. Not everyone is a good fit for life in the United States, no matter how sympathetic their story (and it likely is just a story).
IG Horowitz: Investigation complete, report being drafted
I have viewed the Horowitz report on FISA abuse as a gateway process for some time now. Gateway as in, he has to finish and issue the report before significant other actions -- like prosecutions -- begin to happen. That was the pattern with his report on the Hillary email investigation; first the report, then criminal referrals, which we eventually found out were all declined (presumably due to internal sabotage at DOJ).
I can only hope that the prosecutor working with Horowitz is ready to file charges immediately, or perhaps has already done so before a secret grand jury. Because people are very, very tired of nothing being done. If the DOJ and FBI can delay this until a new President is in the White House, they'll never face justice for their corrupt and treasonous acts.
This is absolutely battlespace-prep for banning the forum. They'll play around with the concept for a while, but the final ban won't happen until it's too late to rebuild elsewhere before the election.
If the populace there are smart, they will relocate to a competitor, possibly even one they create themselves.
