You might be a geek if you get this. If this sounds like something you do for a living, there is likely a sysadmin that hates you. ;-)

I wonder if this applies to any of you out there? I know that my sanity is questionable but that happened before programming.
Being a software programmer is one of the best jobs these days for your pocketbook, but it can be incredibly bad for your mental health.

Ran into this and just had to share it. For those who think you are lazy, bask in the light of this master.

I am seriously struggling with understanding how the most common rifles in use today are "dangerous and unusual" like a short barrel shotgun.

I welcome the discussion of how an AK fails to meet the common use clause in Heller and how James is more applicable.

So does that mean the first amendment doesn't protect the internet or cable news?  I think not.

Funny stuff. I highly recommend posting signs in the border states around CA, NY, CT, MD with the simple "Dont worry, we just disarmed our citizens" along those borders

It is amazing how words can echo from one administration to another. I wonder if Mr. Robbins has considered his words in the light of the current administration.

Although tongue in cheek, it goes right at a frequently cited argument.

I grant that some of it matches, depending on your state, such as having to be over 18 before driving alone.

In the majority, however, I have to disagree with you.

* Anyone can sell a car.
* Anyone can buy a car, even if they cannot operate it legally, including vehicles like semi trucks.
* Background checks are not required.
* I do not have to validate my lifestyle meets any regulations to own a vehicle.
* I can mail a vehicle anywhere without really knowing who is on the other end or going through a licensed dealer.
* I can be fined for enhancing my vehicle but not put in jail. Corollary, I don't know of any car part that I can have in my possession that will result in immediate jail time. (See http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/oct/23/miller-dc-businessman-faces-two-years-jail-unregis/?page=all)

There are more in there but those are just a few.

Don't even get me started about how crazy it is to become an 03 FFL, much less an 06!

This is what many see as the inevitable outcome of gun control law. The choices given are, become law enforcement, don't own guns and give up your responsibility to protect your family, or break the law.

I am very interested to see what comes of this story.

Even the media couldn't believe that he got arrested.
