The so-called open-carry movement took a hit today when the state Assembly approved a bill that would forbid anyone from openly carrying an unloaded handgun in public.
The Assembly approved the bill 45-25 with nine members not voting. It now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Ugh.. Brutal. I was hoping it would miraculously get squashed.
No I’m not talking about a sale they are having, I’m talking about:
Lynnwood, WA – A man accidentally shot himself in the testicles at Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Lynnwood Sunday afternoon, police said.
The man’s handgun, which was in the waistband of his pants, went off at about 12:30 p.m. — an apparent “accidental discharge,” according to Shannon Sessions, a Lynnwood police spokeswoman.

Embarrassing! That’s what you get for being a dumbass and not buying a cheap holster though ( like NY Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress also should have ).
The only accident discharge here was the one he probably had in his pants.
I’d consider this one also a negligent discharge, and not an accidental one, considering his investment in a holster could have prevented this from happening, and he would still have both of his testicles intact. I’m glad to hear that no one else was hurt.

I’d like to know what rapid prototyping service anyone that makes this uses. From my experience getting parts printed, a rough estimate on this cost of this particular project I’d say would be no less than $300, probably closer to $400. I assume printing it yourself on a Makerbot (pictured in the background of the picture) is exponentially cheaper.
I can’t say that I am impressed with the design itself, and I really don’t think holding a gun shaped object up to your head to talk on the phone is the best way to keep a low profile and not attract unwanted attention.
“Criminal suspects must now unambiguously invoke their right to remain silent – which counterintuitively requires them to speak,” she said. “At the same time, suspects will be legally presumed to have waived their rights even if they have given no clear expression of their intent to do so. Those results, in my view, find no basis in Miranda or our subsequent cases and are inconsistent with the fair-trial principles on which those precedents are grounded.”

I think this is hilarious:
I watch a lot of comedy, mainly black comedians such as Katt Williams, Dave Chappelle, Mike Epps etc… and most of their comedy is racial. They poke fun at all type of stereotypes, whether it be black, white, asian, hispanic, and frankly I think it’s hilarious. And no one would think those comedians I mentioned were funny, if what they said couldn’t be related to by a large number of people in those races that they poke fun at.
The classic double standard rears its head once again when it comes to this Bill Maher Clip. Most of the blogs are OUTRAGED to say the least, that he would say such a thing. :roll: get over it… He made a black joke, who cares. It’s perfectly acceptable for black people to joke about white people, and I don’t buy that shit, that it can’t go the other way.
If you think anyone who laughs at this clip is racist, I say go get a sense of humor. And if you think it’s unfair to associate black people and guns, I say go read any Chicago based news website for starters. Or are those stories fabricated as a part of some vast conspiracy?
