    Are the good times over for Michael Moore?  Have the ticket-buyers finally sickened of the director of Sicko?  Sure looks that way, based on what Variety is reporting. The films of Michael Moore have been faltering at the box office for several years now.  This weekend, though, the lackluster performance of his latest truth-to-power opus, "Fahrenheit 11/9," was notably dramatic, if not downright stark.

    Humans have figured out lots of ways to shape metal -- casting it with a mold, stamping it, drilling holes and milling surfaces in a machine shop, even zapping it with a laser. Well, now you can add a new method: 3D printing. A number of companies offer metal 3D printing, which creates products and components layer by layer with a computer-controlled system tracing its lineage to ordinary inkjet printers. But on Monday, printing giant HP announced it's entered the market with the ambition to dramatically lower prices, courtesy of a $400,000 product called the Metal Jet. "We're really going...

    Washington ballot initiative I-1639 puts a 10-day waiting period on AR-15 purchases and raises the minimum age for AR-15 purchases to 21. The initiative also puts special background checks in place and adds other controls to such a degree that the Seattle Times reports the initiative’s passage will make “Washington’s firearms laws…among the strictest in the country.” Washington state made news by passing universal background checks via ballot initiative in 2014. The initiative was bankrolled by millionaires and billionaires such as Steve and Connie Ballmer, Nick and Lenore Hanauer, and Bill and Melinda Gates, among others. The campaign supporting the...

    Some of the confusion and fog surrounding the fatal bear attack and failure of bear spray in Wyoming has cleared. The investigators have done their job, and much was learned from the evidence on the ground. The attack occurred on Friday afternoon, the 14th of September, in the Teton Wilderness in Wyoming, near Terrace Mountain. The hunter, Corey Chubon, and Mark Uptain, the guide, had almost finished processing the 4×4 elk. Mark Uptain, the guide, was attacked first, as he was cutting off the elk's head.  The 250-pound sow grizzly gave no warning. She was first seen in an...

    A new ad targeting Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) for his gun-friendly policies features a hypothetical text conversation between a mother and child during a school lock down. The ad was released by a PAC run by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.). According to Politico, the PAC intends to spend almost $1.5 million on TV and digital ads against the vulnerable congressman. Democrats are optimistic about their chances in November against Coffman, who is facing Jason Crow in Colorado’s 6th district. Cook Political Report rates the race as a “toss up.” The ad warns viewers that the pro-gun National Rifle Association...

    Cody Wilson, the public voice and face of Defense Distributed, is in serious legal trouble.Cody Wilson has a warrant for his arrest, signed by a judge in Texas. Wilson is said to be in Taiwan, and may stay there depending on the outcome. The warrant is based on credible evidence that Cody Wilson paid for sex with a 16-year-old woman. It is unknown if Wilson has been legally served. It seems unlikely. Cody Wilson has been a thorn in the side of those who want a disarmed population for the last six years.  His exploits with 3D printed guns...

    Chicago S-T ^ | 22 sept 2018
    The string of mass shootings across America this past week should cause all of us to demand new laws to reduce gun violence. There are sensible ways to do that; we’ve written about many of them in our recently published 31 bullets campaign. But too few people are raising their voices. Perhaps they think they can find safety simply by avoiding places where numerous people are likely to be shot. To people who think it’s that simple, we suggest

    On 24 July, 2018, a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit upheld the right to bear arms outside the home. As expected, the State of Hawaii waited until the last possible day, then filed a petition for the Ninth Circuit to hear the case en banc, that is, by the whole court.Because the Ninth Circuit is so large and awkward [President Trump should break this court up] compared to other circuits, an en banc hearing of the Ninth involves 11 judges chosen at random, out of the 23 or 24 judges (depending on confirmation hearings) on the Ninth Circuit....

    In this extremely disturbing video out of Abilene, Texas, a heated dispute over the disposal of a mattress leads to gunfire. The shooters, Johnnie and Michael Miller, have both been charged with the first-degree murder of the third man in the video, Aaron Howard. Howard apparently had a baseball bat (not obvious in the video) but was otherwise unarmed. The person recording the video is Howard’s fiance, Kara Box. Threats were exchanged on both sides before John Miller fired his handgun. His son then followed up with a shotgun blast. When District Attorney Jim Hicks saw the footage, he said:...

    DISTRICT HEIGHTS, Md. -- Two Maryland police officers were shot while serving a drug-related search warrant at the wrong apartment late Wednesday, according to law enforcement officials. The resident shot the officers as soon as they opened the door, thinking they were home invaders, authorities said. No criminal charges will be filed against the man, Prince George's County Police Chief Hank Stawinski said Thursday. Stawinski apologized for the error and said he has halted executing search warrants until the department reviews its procedures, news outlets reported. "The individual that we are targeting does not live at that address ... a...

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein claimed on Sept. 5 that assault weapons have been used in “hundreds” of school shootings. Verdict: False Assault weapons are not typically used in school shootings. The exact number of incidents depends upon how school shootings are defined, but a review by The Daily Caller News Foundation shows that rifles were used in up to 32 school shootings in recent decades. The majority of incidents involve handguns.

    Cody Wilson, a leading proponent of 3-D printed guns, has been arrested in Taiwan after being charged in Texas with sexually assaulting a 16-year old girl there, Taiwanese officials said on Friday. Police in the Wanhua district of Taipei arrested Mr. Wilson and delivered him to the National Immigration Agency, according to officials in the city. The police in Austin, Tex., had said on Wednesday that Mr. Wilson had failed to board a flight back the United States from Taipei, and that they had asked the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force for help locating him. Mr. Wilson, 30,...

    Box released the video to let residents know exactly what happened that morning. Box said they had moved to that Abilene home in April, but they had never talked to the Millers until the morning of Sept. 1. The Millers were next-door neighbors. “We had thrown out a twin mattress in a dumpster in our alley a few days before the shooting,” Box said. “You have to have the mattress in the dumpster or they will not haul it away.” On the morning of Sept. 1, Box and Howard were in the backyard when they saw the mattress was on...

    Early reports on the fatal grizzly bear attack on guide Mark Uptain and client Corey Chubon have been confused about many details. The attack on the bowhunter, Corey Chubon, and guide, Mark Uptain, occurred on 14 Septemberof 2018 in Wyoming. In the initial reporting, Chubon was said to have thrown a pistol to Uptain and run away. As facts come to light, the reality is more nuanced.Mark Uptain appears to have relied on a can of bear spray to deter the attack. A can of bear spray, with the safety off, was found at the site. The adult sow grizzly...

    Backers of a voter-approved gun buyer screening initiative that passed in November 2016 but was never enacted have filed notice they'll ask the Nevada Supreme Court to overrule a judge who decided the measure was fatally flawed and could not be enforced. The state high court should side with voters who chose to close what proponents of the measure call a legal loophole that lets gun purchasers skip background screenings when buying from another person or online, attorney Tami Cowden said Thursday. Twenty states have similar laws, she said. Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval declined through his spokeswoman to respond to...

    Authorities in Harford County were still trying to determine late Thursday why Snochia Moseley opened fire at the Rite Aid warehouse where she had taken a temporary job, killing three employees and fatally wounding herself. Authorities have not identified the victims. [Snip] Authorities and court records identified Moseley as female, as did a Facebook profile in her name. But in Facebook messages Coley shared with The Baltimore Sun, Moseley described herself as transgender, although it was not clear whether Moseley preferred to be addressed using masculine or feminine pronouns. In messages that the friend said were sent in December 2016,...

    Brett Kavanaugh is a casualty of an anything-goes political resistance. Consider the spectacle: Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court, the embodiment of a modern rule of law, is being decided in the Senate by the medieval practice of trial by ordeal, such as surviving immersion in fire or ice. Trial by ordeal was outlawed by the Lateran Council in 1215. Or worse, the standards of the mob in the Roman Colosseum, turning thumbs up or down on the combatants. Though unlike the Senate Democrats, the Roman mob at least had an open mind. Incidentally, the standard trope that...

Two dozen students watched in horror as Tanaya Lewis, 17, killed Danyna Gibson, 16, with a kitchen knife in a classroom Wednesday at Fitzgerald High School in Warren, Mich., Fox 2 Detroit reported Friday. “Witnesses said the defendant was smiling and laughing as she was chasing the victim,” Detective Donald Seidel of the Warren Police Department told a judge Friday, WXYZ-TV reported Saturday.
