U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)-The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) is sending letters to Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL) in states that have passed bills protecting the Second Amendment demanding that the FFLs do NOT follow state laws. The ATF, at the same time, sent letters to FFLs telling them to FOLLOW state laws in states that have passed laws that have weakened the Second Amendment.

This week Texas FFLs received a letter from ATF Assistant Director of Enforcement Programs and Services Alphonso Hughes regarding House Bill 957 (HB957). The Texas legislator passed HB957 during the last session. The bill exempts suppressors manufactured in Texas and that remain in Texas from the National Firearms Act (NFA).

The ATF claims that federal law supersedes HB957 therefor, FFLs should ignore HB957!?

Texas HB 957 is similar to the Kansas Act, which also exempted suppressors made in Kansas and remained in Kansas. In 2014, Jeremy Kettler purchased a suppressor from a military surplus store. Since the manufacture made the suppressor in Kansas and Mr. Kettler didn’t leave the State, he thought he was within the law. The ATF took the opportunity to arrest and prosecute Kettler for violating the NFA.

Gun Owners of America took up the case but ultimately lost in Circuit Court. The Supreme Court turned down the opportunity to hear the appeal. Many in the gun-rights world hoped that the Supreme Court would take the case and that it would have been a death blow to the NFA. The Supreme Court doesn’t have a strong history of taking gun cases.

The ATF also sent letters to FFLs located in Missouri, ordering them not to obey House Bill Number 85. HB 85 is known as the Second Amendment Preservation Act (SAPA). The ATF seems to have a problem with certain parts of the new law.

Some of these conflicts that the ATF list that is considered infringements by Missouri are:

(1) “[a]ny tax, levy, fee, or stamps imposed on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services and that might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens,”
(2) “[a]ny registration or tracking of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition,”
(3) “[a]ny registration or tracking of ownership of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition,”
(4) “[a]ny act forbidding the possession, ownership, use, or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens” (with “law-abiding citizens” defined as those who may possess firearms under Missouri law), and
(5) “[a]ny act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens.”

State Rights vs Federal Overreach vs Marijuana

These letters seem to be setting up a state law vs. federal law showdown. The ATF demands that FFLs obey federal law even if it puts them in jeopardy of violating state law. This ultimatum could become a state’s rights issue if both sides refuse to back down.

The question that remains is if the DEA sent out similar letters to states that have legalized marijuana. Those states have laws that do contradict federal law dealing with drugs. Could it be the federal government just targeting guns and doesn’t care about other conflicts between state and federal law? The Biden administration is openly hostile towards guns and gun owners.

The ATF also sent a letter to FFLs in Colorado regarding HB298, Colorado’s Expand Firearm Transfer Background Check Requirements. That bill requires FFLs to wait for a “proceed” from the Colorado Bureau of Investigations (CBI) before transferring a firearm. Under federal law, a dealer may transfer a gun after three days if a person is stuck in a delayed status. Under the new Colorado law, there is no end to the time limit to hold up a transfer.

The ATF requires FFLs to comply with this state law and ignore the federal statute. This request seems to run contradictory to the other orders that the Bureau has issued. Gun rights advocates say this double standard shows the ATF’s when it comes to guns.

Whenever a law is pro-gun, the ATF tells FFLs to ignore it. When a law is anti-gun, the federal agency demands that the dealers comply.

The ATF did not return AmmoLand’s request for comment.

IKEA hack - TOLSBY frame customized with nail polish https://www.chicaandjo.com/ikea-hack-tolsby-frame-customized-with-nail-polish/ When it comes to inexpensive IKEA hacks, the TOLSBY frame is one of my favorites. This little plastic 4x6 frame is useful for photos, of course, but we also love to use it during parties for displaying menus or signage. Sometimes the default white is perfectly subtle for my use, but sometimes I'd rather have colors that really pop.

I decided to apply a geometric mosaic pattern to a TOLSBY frame, and I chose nail polish as my paint. Nail polish is perfect for this because not only does it come in a variety of colors, but it sticks incredibly well to plastic, and dries quickly to a tough and durable finish that will hold up well over time.

The first thing I did was to remove the plastic insert from the frame, so I wouldn't get any polish on it.

Then I used ultra-thin masking tape to mark random lines across the surface of the frame, varying the direction as I went. I love to use 1/8" whiteboard gridding tape for things like this, because it's super thin and flexible.

I continued adding tape until the frame’s surface was divided into various triangle shapes in a pattern I liked.

Then it was time to paint! I started with a blue nail polish, and applied it randomly to a few of the triangles.

I continued with more nail polish colors, painting a few triangles with each.

When all the triangles were painted, I went back and added more coats of polish as needed to get good coverage on all the colors. Fortunately, nail polish dries really quickly, so by the time I finished a coat, it was pretty much ready to start back at the beginning with the next coat right away.

When the polish was dry, I peeled back the tape to reveal the white borders on my mosaic shapes.

I just love this fun design with bright colors and crisp shapes. Who knew a TOLSBY could be so fun and colorful?

CINCINNATI, OH-(Ammoland.com)- The battle for bump stock rolls on as attorneys for Gun Owners of America files a supplemental brief to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Gun Owners of America v. Garland.

In a statement, Erich Pratt, Senior Vice President of GOA and GOF, said: “We’re pleased to continue the battle against the ATF’s unconstitutional ban on bump stocks. As shown by their Proposed Rules on homemade and braced firearms, this rogue, lawless agency seeks to chip away at the rights of law-abiding gun owners. And this is why it is vitally important that their actions — including their ban of bump stocks — do not go unchecked. GOA and GOF will continue to hold the ATF accountable for its repeated assaults upon the Second Amendment rights of gun owners.”

The Gun Owners of America initially argued the case in front of a panel of judges on December 11, 2019. From the panel’s questioning of the government, most legal experts expected a positive outcome for gun rights. A few months later, in May, a three-judge panel from the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the government in Aposhian v. Barr. On September 10, 2020, The Tenth Circuit granted a rehearing en banc.

En banc means the entire bench will hear the case. The prior ruling of the panel is vacated, meaning it is like it never happened. The declaration of the Tenth Circuit worried some pro-gun advocates since Circuit Courts do not like to give contradictory rulings. But on June 25, 2021, the Sixth Circuit handed down a decision by a 2-1 margin that stated bump stocks “are not a machine gun.”

The Sixth Circuit ordered the District Court to grant an injunction against the bump stock ban. The federal government asked for an en banc hearing. The Sixth Circuit granted the government its request, thus vacating the panel’s pro-gun decision. Because an en banc hearing is basically a “do-over,” attorneys for Gun Owners of America lead by Robert Olson had to file a new brief in the case stating why that the plaintiffs believe that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) didn’t have a right to ban bump stocks.

The government is claiming that it has Chevron deference when it comes to the definition of a machine gun.

Chevron deference stems from Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council. In that case, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled that if a statute is ambiguous, then deference is given to the regulatory agency.

Olson makes the case that “Chevron does not apply because the statute is not ambiguous.” GOA argues that the statue does not have any gray areas. The definition of a machine is clear. With a single function of the trigger, the gun fires multiple rounds. A bump stock doesn’t work in a similar way. The trigger needs to be pulled for each round to fire. A bump stock uses the recoil of the rifle to speed up firing. The same effect can be accomplished by using a rubber band or belt loop.

The original panel concluded that Chevron does not apply because this is a criminal statute. In the ruling, the majority wrote, “no deference is owed to an agency’s interpretation of a criminal statute.” Olson agrees with the panel, and GOA has case law on its side. In the United States v. Apel, the Supreme Court wrote, “we have never held that the Government’s reading of a criminal statute is entitled to any deference.” Also, in Abramski v. the United States, SCOTUS wrote, “criminal laws are for courts, not for the Government, to construe … ATF’s … position … is … not relevant at all” and “a court has an obligation to correct [the agency’s] error.”

The supplemental brief argues that “a president’s political objectives do not receive Chevron deference.” It can’t be argued that President Trump wasn’t the catalyst for the change to the definition of a machine gun. In 2018, he stated that bump stocks should be a machine and ordered the ATF to “write out” the device, but Trump did not have the expertise to make the claim that bump stocks were machines and didn’t have the power to order the ATF to “write out” the product.

Deference is given to agencies because they are assumed to have “expertise” in “highly technical” areas of the law. The Firearms and Ammunition Technology Division (FATD) of the ATF first reviewed bump stocks in 2008 and determined that the device was not a machine gun. For the next nine years, the ATF held firm in its opinion that bump stocks were not machine guns and repeatedly issued opinion letters on the subject. It wasn’t until the President order the agency to redefine a machine gun that bump stocks were banned. The government claims that bump stocks are machine guns because it allows “continuous firing initiated by a single action by the shooter.” This definition is different than a “single function of the trigger.”

The decision to make bump stocks a machine gun was one of the President’s policy goals.

GOA makes the case that Chevron deference cannot be used for a policy goal. Case law seems to be on their side. In Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA, SCOTUS ruled that an agency may not “rewrit[e] …unambiguous statutory terms” to suit “bureaucratic policy goals.”

Olson points out that Congress did not delegate to ATF the authority to define or redefine the term “Machinegun.” This fact is important because the courts have ruled that only Congress has the power to write new federal criminal law. In the United States v. Davis, SCOTUS wrote that “[o]nly the people’s elected representatives in Congress have the power to write new federal criminal laws.”

GOA says that even if the statute were ambiguous, then it is Unconstitutionally vague. The gun-rights groups argue that the “Rule of Lenity” applies here. Ambiguities in criminal statutes have always been interpreted against the government. In this case, the government is arguing that ambiguities should be ruled in favor of it, which would break new ground in case law.

All this might not matter because the government seems to have waived Chevron deference by not raising it in district court. In Help Alert W. Ky., Inc. v. TVA, the court ruled the federal government waived any reliance on Chevron deference by failing to raise it to the district court.” On the same day the panel handed down its decision in favor of GOA, SCOTUS declined to consider Chevron deference in HollyFrontier Cheyenne Ref., LLC v. Renewable Fuels Ass’n because the government did not ask for deference earlier therefore waived deference.

The final point Olson makes is that “deference here will only further embolden ATF’s lawless actions.” Many consider the ATF to be out of control. The ATF is trying to use deference to shut down the unfinished firearm frames and pistol-stabilizing brace markets. Many do not believe that the agency has the power to do so because they would be making de facto laws. If GOA is successful in the bump stock case, then it could throw a monkey wrench into the ATF’s future plans.

There is no timeline for a final decision in the bump stock case, but the bump stock war is far from over. Both sides are expected to appeal a negative outcome to the Supreme Court.

Right now we have disabled that feature but there is no user way to override it.
The use case I am thinking about is that some epub3's use pop-up windows to generate pop-up footnotes and asides.
We could instead allow it and support it in Sigil. Any user can still completely disable javascripts by using Sigil's Preferences. So it should not be a security issue.

How British baking champ Nadiya Hussain builds bridges, one cake at a time https://www.dailynews.com/2021/07/28/how-british-baking-champ-nadiya-hussain-builds-bridges-one-cake-at-a-time/ Her father was a chef and owned an Indian restaurant, but growing up in England, Nadiya Hussain’s mum never baked and only used her oven for storage. So the bright young girl had to learn the basics of cooking at school. She was immediately drawn to the kitchen and Baking Studies became her favorite subject.

Fast forward to 2015: As an amateur cook she won the “Great British Bake Off” show competition and since then her career has taken off: She’s risen higher than an angel food cake in a warm oven. She’s hosted culinary shows, written cookbooks and was even commissioned to bake a cake for Queen Elizabeth II on her 90th birthday. (For those dying to know the flavor, she whipped up a citrusy creation decorated with roses and frosted with orange buttercream, purple fondant drizzle and orange drizzle.)

But there’s more to this champion baker. A native Briton, her family is originally from Bangladesh and as a Muslim in an arranged marriage, she has spoken out on prejudice, female empowerment and even mental health issues; she has suffered from panic attacks.

Despite her challenges, Hussain’s success seems boundless. She’s still the most popular winner ever of the internationally acclaimed baking series, called “The Great British Baking Show” in England. Now the American version of her latest cookbook, “Nadiya Bakes: Over 100 Must-Try Recipes for Breads, Cakes, Biscuits, Pies, and More” has been released and it’s filled with dazzling photos of her latest recipes, from strawberry cupcakes rich with clotted cream and topped with strawberry ice cream spiked frosting to savory recipes such as cheese-laden churros with tomato dip.

We had to speak to her about her latest book and get her take on baking delicious goodies and building cultural bridges.

Q: So, how many cookbooks does this make for you now?

A: Six.

Q: What was the inspiration for this one?

A: I’ve done a lot of books but I’ve not done anything specifically on baking and I suppose that’s what I’m best known for. I wanted to write a beautiful cookbook that people can use, enjoy and  have in their home. So, for me, this was a long time coming.

Q: It sounds like you really thought it out. How long did it take to write?

A: This was one that was always on the back burner, but from start to finish, about nine months, it was a joy to test, it was a joy to eat, it was a joy to write.

Q: Bring us up to speed on your whirlwind career. Since you won the championship on the “Great British Bake Off” series, you’ve done so much: Cookbooks, kids’ books, television shows, charity works, even baking a birthday cake for Her Majesty. What are some of the  highlights for you?

A: I’ve done so many things over the last six years that it’s hard to even imagine, that I’ve achieved so much in that short space of time. But things like being able to go back to Bangladesh and film a travelogue from my family’s home country, to be able to go out as a cook and talk about recipes, that was one of the biggest privileges for me.

Q: The recipes are wonderful. The Strawberry and Clotted Cream Shortcake Cupcakes was a genius cross between an English cream cake and an American strawberry shortcake. And it has two surprises inside, a crunchy cookie and a fresh strawberry. A 5-year-old would love it for a treat, but an 80-year-old would love it with tea. How did you come up with that?

A: Most of my good ideas come when I’m exhausted or in bed. I’m always on the go, creating something new and trying something new. I’m really fortunate that I’m able to kind of straddle between two worlds; I have the luxury of growing up in an authentic Bangladeshi home, being weaved in with British culture. So, with all that in mind, I’m able to cook from different parts of the world and different parts of me and ultimately that’s how all my recipes come about. Also when someone says I can’t do something, I say, “Why not?”

Q: Is it your nature to blend traditions to show that we’re really not all that different; that whether you’re from Bangladesh, Australia, or North America, we really have a lot more in common than we think?

A: Yeah, I suppose so. It’s not something I do consciously, but I think for somebody like me, who comes between many, many worlds, it’s really lovely that I’m able to do recipes because I think there are those of us who don’t fit in anywhere, but we can cook and blend things together. It just goes to show that we shouldn’t be restricted by the rules. We should be able to think outside the box and create something delicious without worrying about what the repercussions might be in changing a recipe.

Q: Shakespeare wrote, “Strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends.” And Ted Cantle, the author of a government report on community cohesion, said that you have done more for British Muslim relations than 10 years of government policy. Do you think if we could all just bake together and eat together, we could solve a lot of our differences?

A: I think when you break bread together, it can change things. On a much smaller scale, I could be having an argument or disagreement with a brother or sister, but if we have a cup of tea and a slice of cake together somehow that fixes everything. And I do believe that if you can break bread with people there is no room for differences, error and anger. It makes such a difference to humanity to be able to eat together, I think it makes a huge difference.

A rare and ancient tablet showing part of the epic of Gilgamesh, which had been acquired by Christian arts and crafts retailer Hobby Lobby for display in its museum of biblical artefacts, has been seized by the US government.

The Department of Justice (DoJ) alleges that the 3,600-year-old “Gilgamesh Dream Tablet”, which originated in a region that is now part of Iraq, was acquired in 2003 by an American antiquities dealer, “encrusted with dirt and unreadable”, from the family member of a London coin dealer. Once it had arrived in the US, and been cleaned, experts realised that it showed a portion of the Gilgamesh epic, one of the world’s oldest works of literature, in the Akkadian language.
