Is The AR-15 A ‘Weapon Of War?”

Joe Scarorough: As a longtime gun owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, I agreed with the Supreme Court’s “Heller” holding that concluded Americans had the right to keep and bear arms. But that constitutional protection did not, and will not, extend to guns designed as weapons of war. One should expect such things from a mindless dolt like Scarborough, but we should be able to expect better from people who should know better.  Apparently, it has become all the rage to throw around a few g...

Accessing files on chromebook

I used Calibre to convert a few epub books to AZW3 format and saved them to Google drive. I then downloaded the files to my chromebook (Pixelbook). They appear as zipped files and a default unzipper opens them to three parts. I click on the largest, the text, but I can't open it (nor the others). I have the Kindle app and Kindle Cloud reader but see no option to get at the files on my chromebook. Right clicking does not help me. That results in a window that says select an app to open, no list, ...

Identifying Killers Can be Overdone but is Sometimes Needed

What does obscuring killers' faces really accomplish — besides virtue signaling and looking stupid, to boot? U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Should media avoid naming the gunmen in mass shootings?” an Associated Press follow-up on the New Zealand mosque murders asks. “Criminologists who study mass shootings say the vast majority of shooters are seeking infamy and soak up the coverage as a guide.” It’s nice to see our “news” organizations finally catching up. Gun owner rights advocates have been pl...

Aura H2O Screen somehow got broken? Need guidance fixing it!

Hey everyone! A sad thing happened yesterday: I was turning my Kobo Aura H2O on - everything seemed fine, the display seemed okay - and then the screen split! A big white strip separated the screen: the bottom half worked fine while the top half is frozen as if the screen was powered off or asleep. I went to the FNAC Clinic today, hoping for a fix, but I was told that there was nothing they could do; not only would the fix imply a new Kobo H2O - which they don't have anymore, it was discontinu...
