  • Now There's a Water Gun That Shoots Liquid Bullets and Refills Itself

    Until the Super Soaker came along in 1990, water guns hadn’t changed much in over a century. But the Super Soaker was 28 years ago, and a group of German engineers and designers think it’s finally time for water guns to evolve again. They’ve created the self-filling Spyra One that fires quick bursts of water instead of a steady stream, which promises to improve accuracy and distance. The Super Soaker was a staple of my childhood, as it was for millions of other kids, but most of my summer afternoons were either spent refilling the blaster, or endlessly pumping air...

    California’s high speed rail project is an embodiment of virtually everything wrong with state government. Already $1.7 billion over budget and seven years behind schedule on the Central Valley portion alone, the bullet train reeks of cronyism, inefficient central planning, misplaced priorities and squandering of finite resources. Yet, it persists, despite obvious problems. On Nov. 14, Assemblyman Jim Patterson, R-Fresno, requested an emergency audit of the bullet train. The request came as high speed rail authorities reported that environmental reviews of the 800-mile project won’t be completed until at least 2020, two years later than planned. Against a backdrop of...
  • India's first bullet train project fast-tracks Japanese ties

    Ahmedabad (India) (AFP) - Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday inaugurated India's first bullet train project -- a $19 billion line in the home state of Indian leader Narendra Modi. The initiative is a major step toward reviving India's accident-prone delapidated rail network but is also seen as emblematic of fast warming relations between New Delhi and Tokyo. Both want to combat China's growing influence. The line, using Japanese trains and technology, will link Ahmedabad to India's financial capital Mumbai and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2023. The 500 kilometre (310 mile) journey will be cut...

    GOP establishment consultant Rick Wilson, one of the most vile “Never Trumpers” who once said the donor class should “put a bullet in” Donald Trump, thinks supporters of President Trump saw the assassination attempt on House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) as a “blessing.” “A lot of clickservatives saw yesterday as a grim blessing,” Wilson tweeted the morning after a gunman who hated Trump and Republicans opened fire on Republicans who were practicing for the Congressional Baseball Game. After saying that Trump supporters were “dead right” about the “media double standard,” Wilson claimed “the thing they really loved… even at...

    An Illinois mom behind a viral Facebook post spoke to Fox 2/News 11 Wednesday. Her son, Hunter, 4, has been suspended from his preschool for bringing a shell casing from a fired bullet to school. He'd been at the preschool for about a year, she said, and now was in tears. Neither she nor Hunter's dad knew it, but he found something he thought was pretty neat and he took it to school Tuesday to show his friends. [Snip] Well....when I was escorted to the office for a sit down. I was handed a tiny .22 empty brass casing. Not...

    This picture shows the “bullet hole” in the window of the class room at the Temple Adath B'nai Israel complex in Evansville, Indiana.  Rabbi Gary Mazo has been going “ballistic”, claiming that this is evidence of a hate crime designed  to intimidate and silence Jews. The damage is supposed to have been done on a Sunday, the 26th of February.  It was discovered Monday, and reported to the authorities on Tuesday. Image from tristatehomepage.comYou can see the damage to the window in a close up. It is clearly *not* a bullet hole. The horizontal measurement of the cone is...
  • Leftists: Police bullet caused ramming attack

    Video Leftist "human rights" group "Adalah" has called on the Justice Ministry to investigate the death of the Arab terrorist who murdered Police Officer Erez Levi last week. One of several officers present to supervise the demolition of the illegal Arab settlement Umm Al-Hiran in the Negev, Levi was standing with his comrades when Abu Al-Qia'an, 47, intentionally rammed into him. Other officers immediately fired on Al-Qia'an and killed him. The incident is defined as a terror attack, since video footage shows the terrorist driving with his lights off in the police officers' direction, then turning his lights on and...

You need to be sure of your backstop. Do not unleash it...

    The University of Michigan made headlines this week for initially canceling a screening of the blockbuster film American Sniper because some Muslim students said that it being shown would make them feel “unsafe.” The college has since reversed this decision, but it’s not the only time something like this has happened. Here are seven other things that a school or its students have declared hazards to campus safety: 1.

    Almost fifteen years ago now an ammo maker made claims about its super-lethal round -- the the Black Talon "Devastator" ammo -- and then the all the usual people who freak out about such things freaked out. Hollywood especially. They were bewitched by the Devastator for years. A major plot point in Lethal Weapon 3 concerned these Very Very Scary "cop-killer" rounds. If I understand it correctly (and I think I do), an armor piercing bullet has a very hard, non-deformable tip so that it can better penetrate armor. When a bullet deforms upon impact, it mushrooms into a bigger...

She said a car behind her was following too closely, so she braked to get the car to back off. The braking apparently angered the other driver. The woman said the driver got...

    Dec. 13 (UPI) -- While Walter Santiago was driving after picking up his sick 13-year-old granddaughter from middle school, something flew in through the open driver's side window and hit him in the head. It turns out it was a bullet. The Pasco County Sheriff's Office believes the shot was probably fired from long range and that the bullet that struck the 62-year-old grandfather in the head just above his left temple came from a high-caliber handgun. "Fortunately for me the bullet was losing velocity when it hit me," Santiago said. "I feel very fortunate and very angry that this...

    The 2nd Amendment protects our bullets in its first half of the amendment, "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state,..". Well regulated meaning well practiced, well run, well drilled, able to shoot well and accurate from shooting practice, etc. To achieve this, the abundance of bullets and the ease to obtain them inexpensively is necessary and certain. To the California legislature and all other government bodies and agents, obstruction of the free, simple, and inexpensive access to a plentiful supply of ammunition by the militia or the people is a violation of the Constitution...
