There will be no charges filed. The shooter is a retired local police captain, no DA will risk his reelection by losing the endorsement of the local police union.
Interesting, didn't realize that (I linked to the study directly, skipping the obviously mistaken secondary sources).
This is the currently popular one, as it is from Harvard (typically not a pro-gun source) http://www.law.harvard.edu/students/orgs/jlpp/Vol30_No2_KatesMauseronline.pdf
You must be very patient if you believe ammunition to be degradable enough to lead to a shortage. People routinely fire WWII and 50's cold war surplus ammo with 90%+ success rate. Modern ammo, if stored reasonably, like inside your average US home, will last 100 years.
Unfortunately, school shooters, while getting all the press, are an insignificant contributor to the gun death total. It's economically depressed young males with pistols that make up the majority of shooters, not people with assault rifles, 3 D printed weapons, full automatic guns, silencers or whatever else is the current scare theme is.
Come on, give the guy a break. He was busy setting up the FEMA concentration camps for the 1000 people they were detaining, and didn't like the UAVs looking over his shoulder.
Maybe the headline should read "TSA cover-up of misconduct 26% less effective".
Well there is, but they'd have to kill you if they tell you about it.
There's a real problem for the air force brass behind all this. Pilots are all "officers and gentlemen", drones are flown by enlisted people. Any large swing to more drones not only changes the combat environment, it changes the whole structure of the force. If you no longer have a large collection of ex-fighter jocks to staff your higher ranks with, the whole attitude of the air force as we know it will change in the long run.
If you'd actually read the article and followed up on the data, you'd have realized that the plasma level discussed (50 mymol) is achievable with the normal recommended vitamin C intake of 100 mg/day. This doesn't say anything about needing to supplement the intake heavily, it just shows one of the reasons vitamin C is a vitamin aka something we do poorly without.
Backfiring cars have gone the way of the dodo, the rotary phone and the 8-track
It's an open source app - very easy to reprogram for that purpose. Just like for "18 year olds who love to drink and get flirty" and "best meth house in the city", the uses are endless.
Rich people like you who can afford a $20,000 fully automatic weapon probably need it.
Ye,s the RC plane will not take out an Autobahn bridge. But you start dropping bomb-loaded RC planes into a crowd in a confined area, lets say a Bundesliga game or a rock concert, and the resulting stampede will give you a huge damage multiplier. Or you start dropping it onto the speaker podium at some campaign event. Not every politician travels with his own personal flak battery. The idea of terror attacks is to create disruption, not affect war-like destruction.
There's also the big difference that the Germans make a much clearer cut between criminal investigations (that have to obey the niceties of law) and counter terrorism activities (which are under a special internal security service and has much greater leeway). That wouldn't work in the US due to the fruit-of-the-poisoned-tree doctrine which throws out most evidence that is collected with a "dark spot" somewhere in the chain of acquisition. German law doesn't operate that way, and can still prosecute using data procured under questionable circumstances.
