Pittsburgh Gun Control Plan And AR-15s

Paul Muschick: The reaction to my recent column supporting Pittsburgh’s proposed ban on assault weapons, and calling for a similar ban statewide, was predictable. There was a passionate and often vile backlash from gun owners who cited the Constitution’s Second Amendment and argued it forbids government from interfering with their right to own firearms.

rebooting nova

All of a sudden, nova became unresponsive. Holding down the power button does nothing except to change the led to blue. Holding it down then turns the blue LED off. Tried it connected to the computer and instead of the blue light going off, it turns red. Is there a way to rest the device with other button combinations?

Touch New home screen after Adobe authorisation

Hi all I hate unpleasant surprises with firmware changes and so have switched off my Touch wifi since 2016, and am perfectly content with the software I had.

Forma Multi Column view - anyone know how to modify it?

Hello, I really like reading two columns in landscape mode on the Forma, but while I can do that during the day, the maximum font size is too small for me to read at night. It seems that the Forma automatically defaults to a single column at the font selection of 8th from the smallest. Does anyone know how to modify this? I'm curious if there is an edit to Adobe's Reader software that could be made, or if there is an edit one could make to individual epubs. Is there something in the style she...

Automotif CXLXII...

1977 Pontiac Trans Am. My favorite year for the Firechicken, looks-wise, but well on its way to the nadir of performance. The once-mighty 400c.i.d. engine was strangled down to 180bhp in base form (200bhp in the L78 version.) '76 had been the last year of the mighty 455. By 1980, even the strangled 400 would be gone, and the standard Trans Am motor would be a 301. . [Author: Tam]

Troubling

Police in Vermont stopped a school shooting. Sounds good, right? Except: After confirming the whereabouts and establishing short-term plans for both young suspects, police turned their attention to securing their alleged source of guns. We executed what is called an extreme risk order (Monday) night at a relatives house who had all these firearms, Hanley said. They were locked up (in the home), but one of these kids said he had access to them and could get them. So we took advantage of that extr...
