On three separate days this July, invisible and odorless gases will be released in subway stations and at street level in all five boroughs of New York City. But officials in the New York Police Department will not be alarmed — it was their idea.

The gases, known as perfluorocarbons, will be dispersed to study how airborne toxins would flow through the city after a terrorist attack or an accidental spill of hazardous chemicals, the department said on Wednesday.

I guess the strangest thing to me is there is no further mention of this past the original article…(that was buried on A24).

“Nothing to see here folks, move along…”

Kinda seems like we’re doing the bad guys’ legwork for them…

Obama taking action on gun background check system – Yahoo! News.

With a headline like that, you know it’s gonna be a doozy:

 “The Obama administration was starting a process Friday aimed at removing barriers in health privacy laws that prevent some states from reporting information to the background check system. The action comes two days after the Senate rejected a measure that would have required buyers of firearms online and at gun shows to pass a background check. That’s already required for shoppers at licensed gun dealers.”

Ermmm…forgive me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that already in place? Say I want to buy a gun online from JoeBobOutfitters - one of the questions you get is, “Are you an Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder? If so, may I have a copy of it? and if ya ain’t, what FFL shall I send it to – and I need him to send me a copy of his license before I will ship it to him, too.”

Now Dear Reader – what do you think happens when my shiny new gun arrives at my local FFL? I go to pick it up and have to fill out a Form 4473 – and guess what? Yep, a background check. How about when I buy a gun at a gun show? I pick it out, negotiate price and have to fill out another Form 4473 - and guess what? Yep, another background check.

How about a concealed handgun permit? Take a class, fill out the forms and wait months while they do yet another background check.

Honesty, integrity and gorramed actual fact checking – sadly missing from our alleged media (infotainment outlets) and unfortunately our .gov as well.

Long, but worth every moment you spend reading…

“An essay in seven sections.

- From Progressive Economics
The Fundamental Political Principle

“That rifle on the wall of the labourer’s cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there.” — George Orwell

Let’s start with this: The citizen’s right to possess firearms is a fundamental political right. The political principle at stake is quite simple: to deny the state the monopoly of armed force. This should perhaps be stated in the obverse: to empower the citizenry, to distribute the power of armed force among the citizenry as a whole. The history of arguments and struggles over this principle, throughout the world, is long and clear. Instituted in the context of a revolutionary struggle based on the most democratic concepts of its day, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution is perhaps the clearest legal/constitutional expression of this principle, and as such, I think, is one of the most radical statutes in the world.

Go read the whole thing, take a break and read it again.
