VIRGINIA INCREASING CORRECTIONS BUDGET ANTICIPATING JAILING GUN-OWNERS

Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam and the Legislature’s Democrat majority are anticipating resistance to the gun control measures they are planning, including a ban on “assault weapons” and certain magazines. The legislative majorities and enthusiasm for gun-grabbing are a result of the northern D.C. suburbs’ population growth and are being resisted by the non-urban parts of the state, leading to a proliferation of gun sanctuary counties. Now the Second Amendment-haters seem to be anticipating push coming to shove. The NRA’s Institute for Legal Action writes in the Daily Caller: As if Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s wholesale attack on law-abiding gun owners wasn’t enough, the disgraced public official and his Michael Bloomberg- bought allies in the General Assembly now want the state’s hard-working taxpayers to foot the bill for their unconstitutional schemes. The budget bill (HB30) includes an appropriation of a quarter million dollars to carry out a host of gun control measures that Northam and his anti-gun allies hope to enact. The $250,000 is appropriated to the Corrections Special Reserve Fund in order to provide for the “increase in the operating cost of adult correctional facilities resulting from the enactment” of Northam’s gun control measures. Among the enumerated laws that this allocation is meant to fund is a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, the criminalization of private firearms transfers, and gun confiscation orders issued without due process.

They are planning to throw those resisting their assault on constitutional rights in jail! They’re going to need a lot more than a quarter-million bucks.

The Editor:  Did you see the article about nuclear bombs, LL ?

Watch This Cat:  I sure did.  Here is a clip from an old movie about nuclear war.  We use to have a clip on how to make your own nuclear bomb at home but the internet protectors censored it.  A few funny sections remain.

TE:  Wouldn’t it be terrible if any of the cities mentioned were destroyed, WTC ?

Too Bad Cat:  It would be too bad, that’s for sure.  If I was playing the Devil’s Advocate I might call it urban renewal.  You might swap Houston for Seattle and Portland.  The New Yorker’s might become more polite and sociable.

Here are some facts about the modern bombs.

TE:  Is America worried about nuclear bombs, TBC ?

Open Borders Cat:  No, you could bring in ten ( 10 ) a day on the Southern Border and go unnoticed.  America’s Government isn’t worried about Nuclear Bombs or terrorist.

Back in the ” olden days ”  America was losing more Nuclear Bombs through accidents than Battle Creek, Michigan was making corn flakes.  Amigo recovered one from the ocean near Savannah, Georgia, USA and refurbished it.  We keep it on Cumberland to deter American invasion.

Speaking of bombs, Hunter is a Hollywood guy.  His girlfriend dropped another bomb.

Good Stuff

 

Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you mad.

Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win.

Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known.

Cassini Spacecraft Crosses Saturn’s Ring Plane

Explanation: If this is Saturn, where are the rings? When Saturn’s “appendages” disappeared in 1612, Galileo did not understand why. Later that century, it became understood that Saturn‘s unusual protrusions were rings and that when the Earth crosses the ring plane, the edge-on rings will appear to disappear. This is because Saturn’s rings are confined to a plane many times thinner, in proportion, than a razor blade. In modern times, the robot Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn frequently crossed Saturn’s ring plane during its mission to Saturn, from 2004 to 2017. A series of plane crossing images from 2005 February was dug out of the vast online Cassini raw image archive by interested Spanish amateur Fernando Garcia Navarro. Pictured here, digitally cropped and set in representative colors, is the striking result. Saturn’s thin ring plane appears in blue, bands and clouds in Saturn’s upper atmosphere appear in gold. Details of Saturn’s rings can be seen in the high dark shadows across the top of this image, taken back in 2005. The moons Dione and Enceladus appear as bumps in the rings.
