A well placed "Clothes-Line" works at separating a rider from their skateboard or bicycle, plus the force leaves them breathless and has always worked for me...

This doesn't seem to work well anymore also it sets you the writer for either failure or to be tarnished by their bad choices or actions. I was told that a name drop at an interview would be helpful but that was useless if not a negative towards myself. I now have learned that both diminish your character as you have to rely on someone of much better character attempting to promote you. This letter writing, seems to be really big in Politics but then again that in itself is self-explanatory in itself, honesty<politician=fantasy...

I frequented those cliff's back in the day (1981-1989), great exploratory times back then (No chemicals included). @tabatha, the Property line extends to the waters edge.

On Big Changes on Bench

As an Active "Open Carry" Gun Owner, I approve both Gun Bills for the Safety of the Public.

I also live in a Pro-gun State (Virginia), and work for the Pentagon and several other Government agencies and have both been unarmed and armed, and I support these two bills (the one spoke of in this article).

Unlike most American's I was evaluated by a Psychologist and Sociologist before I was allowed to carry a firearm (I had to prove that I was sane enough NOT to be a danger to myself or others).
Many American's just have to hand over money to own a gun, there is no mandated operational training, No mandated safety training and NO evaluation to prove that you won't go out and kill another on the grounds you have ill feelings toward them.
Yes, it is a RIGHT to own and keep in possession firearms, be it a flintlock (http://flintrifles.files.wordpress.co...) or Crew served high capacity armor piercing/high explosive guns like the M134 Minigun; (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_1luLRXKoJM8...).
The Problem lies in the fact that most use the Movie or TV to give them training and education in the operation and safety of their new toy (Masculinity) but the truth is they are a "Death looking for a Target". As for the Law, it was written not just against an oppressive Government but in the defense of the Country and our Government. The Militia consisted of every able body owner protecting the Country from invasion, these Gun owners possessed a rifle for hunting and the difference between hunter and Militia is where you point the barrel at; animal or fellow human.
The Law was to cover every conceivable firearm from the one at the time to today's multi-fighter assault rifle with its 100 round Beta Mag, and grenade launcher (although our founding fathers never thought one of those would ever exist). The one thing they left open was under what circumstances would a firearm was deemed safe in a persons hands and that my fellow commentators is the flaw of our system, under present interpretation, everyone is safe to possess a firearm (except Felons but even that is changing).
This Law will evaluate that flaw and depending on everyone's state of mind, will depend who gets to possess a firearm.
