A three-judge panel of the Third Circuit in Philadelphia affirmed Wednesday. "The Second Amendment does not protect the possession of machine guns," said U.S. District Judge Anne Thompson, sitting by designation from the District of New Jersey. Thompson emphasized the Supreme Court's clear finding in Heller v. District of Columbia that the government may ban the possession …I don't agree that it's that clear, but it is not surprising these judges came to the decision they did. I think part of the argument was that it wasn't in "common use" but they've been banned since the 30's so yeah, they aren't in common use.

Couric can be heard in the interview asking activists from the group, “If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?”
The documentary then shows the activists sitting silently for nine awkward seconds, unable to provide an answer. It then cuts to the next scene. The moment can be watched here:
However, raw audio of the interview between Katie Couric and the activists provided to the Washington Free Beacon shows the scene was deceptively edited. Instead of silence, Couric’s question is met immediately with answers from the activists. A back and forth between a number of the league’s members and Couric over the issue of background checks proceeds for more than four minutes after the original question is asked.

That was enjoyable, but...yeah I know, but. May be th eleads need to explain his peculiar talent to every character he meets starts to wears a bit. So let's just say four out of five and look forward to Stone's next novel.
This what bureaucrats do rather than think, or better yet their jobs. The only lesson learned here is that the principal is a dick.

I'd read Kupari's two collaborations with Larry Correia and enjoyed them immensely. I enjoyed this book as well, and look forward to more. The general plot is privateer is sent by dad to rescue her kidnapped brother. Adventure and mayhem ensues. Good characters, good action, good story, good book. Recommended.

Obama continued, “When our leaders express a disdain for facts, when they’re not held accountable for repeating falsehoods and just making stuff up, when actual experts are dismissed as elitists, then we’ve got a problem.”

Dark Victory by Bredan DuBois
Honor at Stake is essentially good vamp versus bad vamp with a different take on how the good v. evil thing works for them. I'm not sure where this novel falls in Finn's bibliography but it reads well and works for the most part. I'd definitely like to read a sequel and will probably take a hard look at any of his non Pope books.
DeBois is apparently a long time novelist that has totally slipped by me. I got this alien invasion novel with one of Baen's bundles and it sat in the queue a bit. Wish I gotten into it quicker now. Well written, well thought out, and moves quickly. I'll definitely be looking into more by this guy.
Both books are recommended.

A troubled young man is sent to live with his grandmother on a remote Australian island, and he comes of age and finds his place in the world. There are fantasy elements as he has a connection to Faery, but I think the story might have worked as well without it. Freer is in his element here. This is an enjoyable book. Read it. I liked this and recommend it highly.
