Federal Judge Rules Chicago's Ban On Licensed Gun Dealers Unconstitutional

Kleen13 Re:guns up/crime down in Chicago (934 comments)

In Canada, the courses required to obtain a firearms license mostly covers the safe handling and storage of firearms. Negligent discharges aren't something I hear about often, everybody that I know that own firearms go above and beyond to ensure that they are stored and used responsibly. My ammo is locked in a different part of the house as the gun safe. It would take me over 5 minutes to fire my shotgun. It's perfectly legal to walk down the street with an unloaded non-restricted firearm, but I have yet to see anyone do that. I guess it might have something to do with a different culture in the True White North, but between safety training and storage requirements in Canada a lot of risk is likely removed from the equation. My 2 cents.

I love that I can't remove the preloaded App from my phone without rooting it. Reminds me of Compaq.

Dell Ad Says Windows 8.1 Apps Will Run On Xbox One

Kleen13 Re:Viruses? Oh dear... (148 comments)

They all but slaughtered their desktop OS to get people make software for their shitty phone OS.

Slightly OT, but I could not find a big box store in my area that carried a new PC with Win7. It was ALL windows 8 with no downgrade option.

I love how they always flip or get 3 feet of air. Me wants air ram. Just for dramatic effect when I park at work.

U.S. Government: Sorry, We're Closed

Kleen13 Quick question (1532 comments)

So Obamacare moves forward today regardless of the shutdown, right? That means people can start enrolling in services today. What happens if the Republicans actually get a delay to Obamacare in a future Bills to raise the debt ceiling, or manage to repeal? What happens to the people now invested in a health care plan? Do they just lose it? I forsee a lot of really pissed off Joe the plumbers in the warmup to a pretty significant election year.

Car Dealers Complain To DMV About Tesla's Website

Kleen13 Re:Missing Point (364 comments)

Cycling the used battery will tell the vendor the capacity and viability of the battery core. Refurbishing the battery with new cells isn't really a big deal if they've designed it right, the plastics and charge circuity should have a definable service life. Cell prices go down exponentially in volume, so with automated assembly process I can see that "refurbished" battery modules can be totally viable, until you start buying them on Ebay from China..... As for core disposal, there are established services like Toxco that every VAR and assembler I've ever hard of use.

You're also the best gauge for judging exposure. That is, of course assuming you aren't a completely flawed unit to begin with, which I consider reasonable.

Kleen13 Re:Burden of enforcement (166 comments)

Exactly. My wife has been sending me SMS messages with pics of my kids white-knuckling the armrests during takeoff on their summer vacation trips this year. I'd be shocked she was the only one on her flights.
