  1. Las Vegas mass shooting

    https://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/rpt/2013-R-0039.htm Federal Law The 1994 federal Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which amended the 1968 Gun Control Act, made it illegal to transfer or possess “large capacity ammunition feeding devices” not lawfully possessed on or before the law's enactment. But the law permitted the sale of magazines manufactured before the ban (formerly codified at 18 USC § 922(w)(1) and (2)). (The act also banned the manufacture, transfer, and possession of semi-automatic assault weapons.) The act defined “large capacity ammunition feeding device” as “a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device . . . that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition.” It exempted attached tubular devices designed to accept and capable of operating only with .22 caliber rim fire (18 USC § 921(a)(31(A) &(B)). The act included a sunset clause, under which the ban expired after 10 years, on September 13, 2004. Congress allowed the law to expire, and consequently, formerly banned high capacity ammunition magazines (and assault weapons) are now legal unless banned by state or local governments. ***Nevada has no such law on the books.

    For ~$400 you can turn your semi-auto rifle into a pretty much full auto by using a bump stock/slide fire kit...which are legal (loopholed).

    Don't call it a comeback....
  4. Trump Foreign Policy

    Again, I'm not sure where you are seeing people with this attitude. Maybe I'm just not looking at the same things. You're just over reading into my post. I didn't say anyone had an attitude. I said dropping a bomb has nothing to do with dick size. Earlier you replied to a post that specifically said the US is swinging its big D. The military is our (USA) dick when it comes to how we are seen by the rest of the world. It's true..science.

    BTW...Russia developed "The Father Of All Bombs" and is supposedly 4 times as powerful. So I am guessing the US is now developing the Mother In-Law Of All Bombs which will out pace that.

    Thermobaric bombs are the most effective against cave/tunnel systems...and MOAB is the biggest thermobaric bomb we got. The US Military has used smaller laser guided 2000lb thermobaric weapons against caves/tunnels in this region before (in 2002). Not sure why it hasn't been used before. Edit for link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermobaric_weapon

    This bomb was used on the tunnel systems ISIS is using in that area. I think this type of bomb is the most effective we have for cave/tunnels. Foreign policy wise I think this shows that we aren't afraid to use weapons like this to get the job done. It's been around since 2003.... It should also send hopefully send Afghanistan a message that we will do what it takes to win this war against ISIS/Taliban and for them to stop supporting..."allegedly"...these groups.

    Not directed at you, to be clear. The reaction to this and the fawning media coverage is what I worry about. I mean, I fall for a lot of military glorification stuff, personally, but this isn't even hella cool tech enables U.S. to launch devastating surgical strikes. It's "we dropped a dumb bomb, but a really big one because it's 10 times heavier than our normal dumb bombs." We have always had and demonstrated the ability to bomb at will. Amping up the tonnage on a (probably) one-off demonstration is clearly pulling out the ruler. The only argument to be had is whether there was value in doing so. Some people think so. I disagree strongly. It's GPS guided...so technically not a "dumb bomb".

    One square mile of destruction seems like a dick swing to me. And the message it sends is pretty clear.

    First on CNN: US drops largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan Military swinging their big D today.
  11. DOJ Initial Russia Hearings

    Ever heard of the deconfliction line that was established between US and Russia? To protect pilots, Moscow and Washington opened a so-called "deconfliction line" after Russia began its bombing campaign in September 2015. On the U.S. side, it is run out of the Combined Air and Space Operations Center at the vast al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar, which hosts the forward headquarters of U.S. Central Command. There, air traffic controllers and senior military officers are in contact with their Russian counterparts in Syria. They share coordinates and other data to avoid midair collisions or confrontations. One U.S. pilot flying missions over Syria credited his safety to it in a recent Associated Press interview . https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2017/04/07/world/middleeast/ap-ml-ap-explains-syria-us-russia.html?_r=0
  12. Can't airlines remove/bump passengers from any flight based on airlines contract of carriage? (I am not advocating the manner in which the man was removed)
