  1. Sessions has refused to recuse himself from overseeing Trump campaign/Russia connection investigations, even though he himself was part of the Trump campaign team. Seems "just", eh? Sessions was responsible for Trump hiring Carter Page (another Big Oil connected guy), who resigned in Sept. after he was investigated by US intelligence. Interestingly, his name surfaced numerous times in the Christopher Steele leaked "report". Also interestingly, apparently Page's last known public appearance was in Moscow in December. I'm on dialup for a while, so hard to get around, but anyone interested, read up on the ongoing Dmitry Firtash saga, and the Paul Manifort tie in. Beginning to look like there may indeed be some there there, here and there. Previous admin wanted him back to prosecute. Will Sessions? Hmmm. - OS
  2. Yeah, they did. Saw a good few when they first met at very end of previous episode, didn't really notice any in this one though. Obviously not all that many per capita though, most have knives and improvised whatevers.
  3. Thanks, that extra phrase in the "discharging in city limits" part of state preemption statute hadn't stuck in my brain pan. That pretty well covers it within with the rest of the self defense statutes I'd think. - OS
  4. Minor point. In the weapons section (39-17-13xx), justifiable self defense only exempts one from any state charges within that part, not local ones or charges in any other part of TCA. If there something else in the self-defense section? - OS
  5. Thanks for digging that thread back up for the report. Alas. - OS
  6. Yep, same. For about same price as that basic Smug Mug thing you might as well get website space, blog platform, email accounts and whatever instead of just pix storage. Initially maybe a smidgen of learning involved to get your files there, make links to them, whatever, but well worth it overall. - OS
  7. Yeah, part of "Jewish tailor" genre. One of my favs: =------- So this man wants a new suit, and he goes to a tailor. The tailor puts him up on the platform surrounded by all those mirrors, takes his measurements, and says “OK, come beck in a veek, I'll heve de suit ready.” In a week the man returns to the tailor shop. “Here’s your suit,” says the tailor. “Well, I’d like to try it on,” says the customer. So he goes in the dressing room, takes his clothes off, and starts putting on the suit. It’s all but impossible to get into the thing! Finally, he has it on, comes out, and gets up on the platform again. He looks at himself, frowns, and says to the tailor, “This suit is terrible! Look at this! The jacket sleeves are so long they’re flopping! But the shoulders are so narrow I can’t even breathe! The pants legs are baggy! But at the same time, the pants squeeze my hips!” On and on he complains. “Vait a minute,” says the tailor, interrupting him. “Here’s vut you’ll do. You’ll go like dis…” And the tailor shows him how to hold in his sleeves, hunch up his shoulders, tuck in the baggy pants with one hand, all at the same time, to “make it fit”. A few minutes later the man emerges from the shop onto the street. He’s hobbling down the sidewalk, trying to walk while still holding his sleeve, hunching his shoulders, tucking the pants, etc, etc. Two old ladies waiting for a bus across the street notice him as he struggles along. “Oy!” says one of the ladies, shaking her head in pity. “Look at that poor man, so crippled, it's a shame.” “Yes,” says her companion, also shaking her head. “But doesn’t his suit fit nice!”
  8. Zombie related?
  9. Looks like SSN isn't necessarily required? "A Social Security Number or sworn affidavit if no Social Security number has been issued." http://www.tn.gov/safety/section/dlmain Here is sworn affidavit: http://www.tn.gov/assets/entities/safety/attachments/ssnaffidavit.pdf Also, I see nothing about the "90 days" worth of documentation to establish residency? Everything just says "current" utility bill, "current" bank statement, "current" lease/mortage, etc. http://www.tn.gov/safety/article/dlproof - OS
  10. specifically, it asks: 12.a. Country of Citizenship: 12.c. Are you an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States? 12.d.1. Are you an alien who has been admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa? 12.d.2. If "yes", do you fall within any of the exceptions stated in the instructions? 13. If you are an alien, record your U.S.-Issued Alien or Admission number (AR#, USCIS#, or I94#) Question 12.d. Immigration Status: An alien admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa includes, among others, persons visiting the United States temporarily for business or pleasure, persons studying in the United States who maintain a residence abroad, and certain temporary foreign workers. These aliens must answer "yes" to this question and provide the additional documentation required under question 18.c. Permanent resident aliens and aliens legally admitted to the United States pursuant to either the Visa Waiver Program or to regulations otherwise exempting them from visa requirements may answer "no" to this question and are not required to submit the additional documentation under question 18.c. Question 13. U.S.-issued Alien Number or Admission Number: U.S.-issued alien and admission numbers may be found on the following U.S. Department of Homeland Security documents: Legal Resident Card or Employment Authorization Card (AR# or USCIS#); Arrival/Departure Record, Form I94, or Form 797A (I94#). Additional information can be obtained from www.cbp.gov. If you are a U.S. citizen or U.S. national then this question should be left blank.
  11. Oh, just realized this is in New Member forum. If you want more folks to probably see it and interact, ask a Mod to move it to main forum somewhere, since it's already off to a good start, rather than just re-posting. Send a message to MacGyver
  12. In Federal-ese, you "receive" one by purchasing, gifting, inheritance, or loan. If you are a prohibited person, you cannot "receive" one via any of those methods. Purt sure it does indeed in Lee's case. Look at a 4473, questions 12.d.1 and 12.d.2. There's the exact situation he speaks about. "Resident alien" is permanent resident, yes? Unlike Lee's situation. Permanent resident can even get an HCP. Lee, I honestly don't know if the average Federal Firearms Dealer handles this sort of thing enough to sell you a firearm, but certainly if you check that you are here on a NonImmigrant visa, and then check that you fall into a category of exception and present your hunting license, as I understand things, then he should, and again AFAIK the background check would be approved. In a free state like TN we may legally buy/sell firearms between TN state residents in private transactions. The only proviso is that of federal law whereby you must not "know" or "have reasonable cause to believe", that the other person is ineligible to possess firearms, and TN proviso that the recipient is not a minor. Now here's the ironic part. Assuming you have a TN driver's license, that's about all most sellers will require to see for a sale, and many won't even ask that. If you go into explanation all about how you're not a permanent resident but having a TN hunting license makes you legal and etc, most will probably back out of the sale, even though you are explaining why it really is lawful! - OS
  13. Just for pedantic accuracy, it's $10 per 4473, not per firearm. - OS
  14. General H.R. McMaster new pick for National Security Advisor. Wiki profile: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._R._McMaster - O
  15. Who knows, Trump just grabs a phrase here and there and lets them bounce around in his head until they're combined as the, you know, truth. - OS
