The restraining order was issued Monday, just days after the FISA court blocked the government's request to continue holding onto call records that were relevant to ongoing litigation. With its quick action, the California district court has put a hold on that ruling for now, allowing relevant evidence to be preserved.

I think you need to get away from the "holster" idea. Even my Galaxy S4 in a holster is a bit too big for belt mount and frequently gets in the way.

I think you'd be better served with a small bag.

Maxpedition makes some pretty rugged gear with lots of storage and pockets, but it isn't pretty. Check out their GearSlinger line.

If that won't fit in, you can check out some of the leather man-purses.

I think you're insane for thinking a gun is going to give you any protection from anyone armed with more than a saturday night special

What are you talking about? Firearms are literally the best thing for defense from armed assailants.

I don't think the constitution says anything about you individually having the right to own a gun,

Then it is clear that you do not have a very good understanding of the Constitution.

According to, nearly half of the funding for the NRA comes from membership dues alone. Voluntary donations to the NRA, however, still account for a majority portion of the remaining funding.

If, OTOH, I drive to visit my daughter, the NSA say they're completely uninterested in me or my car, even if I drive through the US to get there.

Well, no.

They are just saying they are not interested in gathering that bit of information from Verizon, in this particular NSL/FISA injunction/wiretap order.

If they are willing to record data on every call between every American, then they are surely more than willing to gather data on foreigners. They are probably just getting that information elsewhere, or via another NSL.

When was the last time you walked through a metal detector?


For myself, I can think of only a handful of times in the last year.

1) When going into a state courthouse. (Metal detector, but legally allowed to carry a gun anywhere but in the actual courtroom (with state permit to carry.))
2) At the airport, but only about 25% of the time, and ONLY when "opting out" of the naked image scanners.

Surprise your boss. Get to work on time.
