Video: Navy Uses Laser Blaster In The Persian Gulf







” The Navy U.S. has deployed and fired a laser weapon on board a warship in the Persian Gulf. The laser weapon system or LaWS was fired from the USS Ponce which is assigned to the 5th Fleet in Bahrain: Epic Technology!

  The laser hit and destroyed a series of targets during a test shots – one mounted on a small boat, another was a six-foot drone.

  The Navy has spent $40 million over the past decade developing LaWS. It’s shown to be effective at ranges of up to a mile.

  An officer sitting inside the ship directs the laser with a video game-like controller. LaWS generates about 30 kilowatts of power in focusing its deadly beams.”

3D Printed Gun Parts Hit Road Blocks (and Why it Matters)





” As states like Colorado try to make manufacturing some magazines illegal, than legality must be a concern. But regulation is going to be complicated, if not impossible, when people begin printing magazines at home.

But it goes beyond legislation.  After Sandy Hook, many people and corporate entities are distancing themselves from guns. There is the proposed sale of Freedom Group. Even firearms retailers pulled back from controversial guns.

Even Ebay is getting (more) skittish.  They’re paranoid about the mention of “Assault Weapons” in any description.  You can still sell a part that might fit more than one gun, but not if you mention assault weapons, or any of those taboo guns associated with assaults.  Theirpolicy page now reads: “Accessories that fit a variety of different weapons, including assault weapons [can be posted]. But in your listing, you can’t mention any assault weapon compatibility.”

And Thingiverse, the online repository of printable projects associated with MakerBot printers, recently pulled the plans for an AR-15 lower, citing a violation of their service terms (you’re not allowed to store files that can be used to make weapons).

This has to be an expected setback for HaveBlue (aka Michael Guslick), the designer that posted the AR-15 plans.  Similar things are happening to others.  Cody Wilson and the team at Defense Distributed, for example, now seem to be spearheading the printed firearms movement.  They have an SLA Printed 30 round AR magazine.  The only thing that isn’t printed is the mainspring.”

Leftism Explained



Biden: “We Don’t Have Time to Enforce Existing Gun Laws, Let’s Add New Ones”




“The left is in love with laws and legislation. It adds more and more regulations to a giant pile that no one has any time to read, let alone enforce, so that enforcement is entirely selective.

New laws are passed and then ignored. Everyone is always guilty of something because of the sheer number of laws out there. And when the problem that the laws were created to solve continues, that’s justan excuse for bigger legislative overreaches

But this is classic liberalism. Some laws are important and some aren’t. And their priority changes at a given moment. Enforcing the unimportant ones is ridiculed, but enforcing the important ones becomes a matter of life and death.”

The Federalist Papers



Most people see a world full of problems that can be solved by laws.


 ” I’m a libertarian in part because I see a false choice offered by the political left and right: government control of the economy—or government control of our personal lives.

People on both sides think of themselves as freedom lovers. The left thinks government can lessen income inequality. The right thinks government can make Americans more virtuous. I say we’re best off if neither side attempts to advance its agenda via government.

Let both argue about things like drug use and poverty, but let no one be coerced by government unless he steals or attacks someone. Beyond the small amount needed to fund a highly limited government, let no one forcibly take other people’s money. When in doubt, leave it out—or rather, leave it to the market and other voluntary institutions.

But this is not how most people think. Most people see a world full of problems that can be solved by laws. They assume it’s just the laziness, stupidity or indifference of politicians that keeps them from solving our problems. But government is force—and inefficient.”






  The title above is a plea of sorts for help creating a suitably clever category for this type of post . Call it idiocy , bureaucratic overreach , ah , I don’t know , thus the cry for reader contributions .

   Anyway , earlier I posted about an Idaho regulation governing how a citizen should deal with roadkill . The idea of the need for such wasted funds and government intrusion struck me as absurd so I brought it to your attention .
    Now I find another of similar folly and come to the realization that there are a limitless supply of equally inane rules , ordinances and laws and that they could easily comprise a regular feature here at YouViewed.com .
    While I recognize the place for the idiocy of the day/week category , I’m afraid that I’ve already linked forever , in my mind anyway , the term idiocy with my buddy Joe ” Idiocy ” Biden so I need something else to title the ludicrous government regulation/rule/law of the moment .

Enough of the intro , here is the ??? of the day brought to my attention by Lowering The Bar :

Can’t a man and his wallaby be left alone ?

” According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review , a Pennsylvania man accused of harboring a
wallaby has pleaded no contest to that charge, and was sentenced last week to one year of probation. ”

Now imagine a year’s probation without any physical evidence of harm to or even of the actual existence of the alleged wallaby.

“Ott refused to comment
as to the wallaby’s location “but said it is being well cared for.” Ott pleaded no contest to one count of unlawful importation of a wallaby and one count of tampering with evidence ( i.e.wallaby concealment).
The wallaby, if that’s what it was, may just have escaped. ”

Wallaby concealment …. Who’d a known ?

And lest we yanks think we rule in the stupidity and waste department we are reminded that our cousins across the pond have eons more experience in the “ridiculous” arena :

” For those of you who are not entirely clear on how to wash your hands, here’s a handy instructional video on the subject created by
the county council of West Sussex in the UK. Some residents were upset when the council revealed in March that it had spent over
£100,000 to make 92 such videos, covering not just hand-washing but also such perplexing topics as how to use a compass and how to make a phone call. “I have my phone firmly in my right hand,” said the star of the latter video, “and then select the digit of choice, in my case the left index finger.”
Presumably there is a separate video for left-handers. “

“The vast majority of tickets we see are for breaking one of these million rules they have: You’re a foot too close to the fire hydrant, a foot too close to the crosswalk,
the table is too long,” said Mr. Basinski, who has been lobbying to change the fine structure for several years. “You can very quickly be at that $1,000 level for every

As someone who spent thirty years trying to negotiate the byzantine maze of  laws and regulation in the state of NY and show a profit ,  I can attest to the fact that the state seems bent on driving us all to ” go Galt ” . I know that’s what I did .
