How to Fight Corporate Gun Control

How to Fight Corporate Gun Control U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- When it comes to gun control, many people think of legislation, political campaigns, and even ballot issues. Lately, though, a new front is opening up in the battle for our Second Amendment rights – and it is primarily in corporate corner offices and boardrooms.Major corporations are now siding with those who attack our Second Amendment rights. Sounds harsh, but that is the objective reality behind the decisions of a number of compani...

Gifts Ideas for Her

Happy Cyber Monday everyone! Today is the last day I’ll be posting gift ideas. I’m sitting in my coziest PJs (I buy all of mine from Soma I love them), and checking off all the gifts on my list today. It feels good to be (mostly) done with my shopping. I much prefer doing it from the comforts of home then braving the cold weather and crowds in the stores (unless it’s a local brick & mortar boutique in my hometown). I present the very last of my gift ideas of the season: gift ideas for ladies. Th...

Anyone Know about Prime-Less Amazon FREE Shipping and

I hope that this thread is an appropriate one for this subforum. If not, I apologize and I'll take the post down immediately; and please understand that the infraction was not intentional.

Four Principles of Concealed Carry Commitment

By Bob O'Connor Carry Commitment USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- The concealed carry COMMITMENT is a pledge to yourself and those around you to be a responsible carrier of your firearm.

In the coming weeks I will present my perspective of these principles, but first I wanted to discuss what the concealed carry commitment means to me.Often over the past several ye...

Potential useful hack for Froma

I don't mean to be someone who is telling others what code they should write but this just came to me. I bought a Forma from Walmart. When you put the Forma to sleep it would display a Walmart logo. Not pleasant. I hacked around a bit and changed the affiliate from WalmartHybrid to Kobo and after that when putting the reader to sleep it showed a plain blank screen just like other older Kobos I have do. What I was thinking was that somewhere there must exist code on the reader that says if ...

Calibre crashes immediately after the splash [Linux]

Some time ago (and several system updates later, including updates to Calibre) Calibre starting failing to load (crashing?) after the splash screen. I start Calibre -> The splash screen appears and shows the usual loading. -> The splash screen disappears. -> Calibre does not load. There are no errors. No tray icon. Just nothing. I'm on Arch Linux with Deepin DE (system is up to date including Calibre). I tried running Calibre in debug mode (calibre-debug) to no avail. After some hunting I fou...

DEVO: The Brand / DEVO: Unmasked

This two-book feature, DEVO: The Brand / DEVO: Unmasked, follows the immeasurably influential and oddball band.

The set is the perfect gift for music historians and DEVO fans alike.

A call at 4:00AM about another shooting in the South Addition got me out of bed and on the job. No breakfast was the result of a call that bled into yet another meeting with the Chief. Lunch was a half-sandwich someone left on the coffee bar. Now heading home, I could hope for a decent dinner. Faced wi...

I wish I’d written this line

If election persists for more than four months . . . Though, to be honest, I do question the legitimacy of elections. Generally, elections seem to be way too close, putting them within the margin of cheat. And I don’t know that I have enough faith in the results. Odd how vote recounts mostly tend to go the one direction.
