When #NewJersey passed a #law making these #magazines [10+ rounds] #illegal in 2018, there was a debate on whether the #gun owners of the state would hand in their magazines. When the law went into effect at the end of last year, New Jersey #Governor #PhilMurphy and #AttorneyGeneral #GurbirGrewal celebrated it as a #victory against #gunrights advocates.

SGT Kristina Pados of the New Jersey #StatePolice responded to our #FOIA request. She confirmed what our sources inside the New Jersey Police told us. The gun owners of New Jersey have #surrendered no magazines.
ha ha!

Make stupid laws, get stupid results. Strut around and act like you're "doing something". #democrats

The Martyrdom of Julian Assange....
The arrest Thursday of Julian Assange eviscerates all pretense of the rule of law and the rights of a free press. The illegalities, embraced by the Ecuadorian, British and U.S. governments, in the seizure of Assange are ominous. They presage a world where the internal workings, abuses, corruption, lies and crimes, especially war crimes, carried out by corporate states and the global ruling elite will be masked from the public. They presage a world where those with the courage and integrity to expose the misuse of power will be hunted down, tortured, subjected to sham trials and given lifetime prison terms in solitary confinement. They presage an Orwellian dystopia where news is replaced with propaganda, trivia and entertainment. The arrest of Assange, I fear, marks the official beginning of the corporate totalitarianism that will define our lives.

Campaigners fear rape allegations are being overlooked as US case against WikiLeaks co-founder takes centre stage

Women’s groups have added to pressure on Sajid Javid to ensure Julian Assange is extradited to Sweden. Failure to do so would effectively endorse “rape culture”, they claim.

A coalition of campaigners representing survivors of sexual violence urged the home secretary to focus on the unresolved rape allegations emanating from Sweden against Assange. They fear that US charges – relating to Wikileaks’ disclosures – may be given priority in the UK. #JulianAssange #WikiLeaks #Rapeandsexualassault #DianeAbbott #Sweden #Media #Law #Politics #Europe #UKnews

Special rapporteur for housing says plight of hundreds of migrants breaches their human rights

France must act on the “dire” living conditions of migrants and refugees sleeping rough in Calais and stop systematically evicting people from tents in violation of the right to adequate housing, the United Nation’s housing envoy has warned.

Leilani Farha, the UN’s special rapporteur for housing, highlighted the “harsh conditions” of an estimated 600-700 migrants and refugees currently homeless and sheltering in tents or makeshift camps on the northern French coast with “extremely limited access to emergency shelter”. Many have come to northern France because they hope to reach Britain. #France #Refugees #Calais #Humanrights #Europe #Law #Worldnews #UnitedNations #Migration

Last Friday, the #President visited #Calexico, #California, where he said, "We're #full, our system's full, our country's full -- can't come in! Our country is full, what can you do? We can't handle any more, our country is full. Can't come in, I'm sorry. It's very simple."

Behind the scenes, two sources told CNN, the President told border agents to not let migrants in. Tell them we don't have the capacity, he said. If #judges give you trouble, say, "Sorry, #judge, I can't do it. We don't have the room."

After the President left the room, agents sought further advice from their leaders, who told them they were not giving them that direction and if they did what the President said they would take on #personal #liability. You have to follow the #law, they were told.

Israel PM vows to annex West Bank settlements if re-elected

[Editor’s note: This shows one of the key reasons why the Israelis and their Judeo-Zionists cohorts inside the US inserted Trump into the White House – so he would allow them to do things such as annex West Bank territory, move the US Embassy to Jerusalem and seize the Golan Heights, all of which would have been out of the question under an Obama or Clinton presidency.

Is anyone a #lawyer here, or a person with good knowledge of #intelletualproperty #law? #IANAL and I may need a little #help. Not a legal advice, I'm just curious and can't seem to easily find this information.

Let's say that for a few years I have been working, in my spare time, on my own hobbyist project (e.g. an open-source game) named X. Is it possible for someone else to register X as a #trademark, and limit my ability to use X commercially? Or even non-commercially?

In other words, can anyone register any free trademark, regardless of whether they "created" it or whether anyone else is using it non-commercially?

If this differs by country, suppose USA.

I know of at least two #libregame projects that had a trademark problem, but the trademark usurpator seems to always have been the original author of the projects, even if no longer active in development.

Thanks for any clarifications!

Abolish the police

San Antonio police officer who was fired after colleagues accused him of trying to give a homeless man a sandwich containing dog feces has won his appeal but hasn't been reinstated.

An arbitrator this month overturned Matthew Luckhurst's dismissal because he wasn't punished within the required 180 days of the alleged incident.

Officers reported the dog feces incident happened May 6, 2016, while Luckhurst was on bicycle patrol. He was notified of his indefinite suspension Oct. 28, 2016.

How shall the Republican party proceed henceforth?

There’s a reason why Steve Bannon has (ironically) become an inveterate globe-trotter: his revolution quickly found its limits on the home front. Compromise is anathema to practitioners of the paranoid style, and in politics, people who can’t compromise have a hard time making new friends.

_ The Republicans could pick up that ball and run with it, rebranding as the party of misery. There are some downsides though. Politicians don’t have much incentive to make things better if despair and resentment are their most potent electoral weapons._
But if they managed to gather those people for their ideals, they could renew these regions, create prosperity and wealth, so that those people will embrace them due to the positive turnout their election has brought. I mean, you wouldn't turn away from the hand that fed you when you were starving, just because you were no longer hungry.

So as many of you may know, this is an election year here in Canada. In October we again go to the polls, and Trudeau is suffering his lowest popularity ever. At least domestically.
