Despite Restraining Order, ATF Raids Ares Armor

Ares-Armor-ATF-raidLast week Ares Armor, a company that sells firearms parts in San Diego, obtained a restraining order against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The restraining order was approved by Federal Judge Janis L. Sammartino and a federal raid of the business was prevented. ATF planned on raiding the company in order to gain access to a list containing more than 5,000 customer names. The customers on the list had purchased a plastic or polymer  lower receiver from EP Armory, a part that is used to build rifles legally at home. The metal version of the receiver is legal due to being stamped with a serial number.

ATF and DOJ argue the plastic versions of the receivers are illegal because they don’t have serial numbers, even though they are the exact same part simply made of different materials. In this case ATF considers receivers firearms, not simply firearm’s parts. In past cases and situations, ATF has determined these parts are not firearms. Here is DOJ’s argument:

Plaintiff Lycurgan Inc, dba Ares Armor (“Ares Armor”) is part of ATF’s investigation because it is in possession of approximately 6,000 of these unserialized AR-15 lower receivers. Further, Ares Armor is not a federal firearms licensee, so it cannot legally engage in the business of dealing in these firearms, let alone ones that do not bear the required manufacturer’s mark and serial number.

Over the weekend and under pressure from the Department of Justice Judge Sammartino reversed the restraining order and heavily armed ATF agents raided the company in full tactical gear. Most of the raid was caught on video and ATF confiscated materials (plastic receivers) and the customer list Ares Armor was trying to protect.


People, this should really piss you off. Why? This guy can say it better than I can:

Friends, even if you don’t live in San Diego (peoples republic of Kalifornia), please support Ares Armor.  If the judicial system gets this one wrong, you will probably be getting a knock on your door…

A plan to divide California into 6 states…

sixStatesSilicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper has a big idea. Well, he’s got six of them: Draper thinks California, the nation’s most populous state, is too big to govern effectively. So he’s pushing a ballot initiative that would split the Golden State into six new states.

“Vast parts of our state are poorly served by a representative government,” according to Draper’s plan, which cleared a key government hurdle this week, part of the process to qualify for the ballot. California residents “would be better served by six smaller state governments.”

In a recent interview, Draper said he has seen a state once regarded as a model slide into decline — many public schools are troubled, transportation, water and other infrastructure systems are over matched and outdated, spending on prisons has soared.  A group of states could change that, he said, competing and cooperating with each other.  No one would dispute that California, home to 38 million people, is full of rivalries and squabbling. Dodgers or Giants. Tacos or sushi. Where water goes, and how much of it.  But the state has proven reliably resilient against attempts to split it apart, dating to the era of its founding in 1850. Over the years, proposals have suggested California should be two states, or three, or four.

Even if it were to be approved by voters, Congress would have to endorse the idea of creating six new states — and adding 10 senators to the chamber’s political mix (as with all states, California currently has two). Congress, under the U.S. Constitution, must approve the creation or division of any states.

Draper, in documents he submitted to the Secretary of State’s Office, recommends dividing California regionally, including establishing a state called Silicon Valley, which would include San Francisco and nearby counties that are home to technology giants like Facebook and Apple.  Los Angeles would become part of the new state of West California, which also would include the coastal cities of Santa Barbara and Ventura. The state’s farming heartland would become Central California. San Diego would be the largest city in the new South California.

Squeaky Dolphin?

squeakydolphin-640x456Documents obtained by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden show that NSA analysts monitored content on The Pirate Bay and used the agency’s surveillance systems to track where it came from. The documents also show that the NSA’s British partners at the GCHQ used XKeyscore data as part of a surveillance program on sites that included WikiLeaks. That was part of a broader psychological profiling and targeting program to collect intelligence, influence individuals online, and disrupt groups like Anonymous that were considered threats.  The new documents show that the GCHQ conducted “broad real-time monitoring of social media activities, processing data on activities like watching YouTube videos and Facebook Likes to profile, categorize, and target individuals for psychological operations.” The NSA documents in the latest disclosure refer to monitoring for content that could be considered “malicious foreign activity.” But it’s clear that the NSA also used its XKeyscore surveillance to dig through traffic to the torrent-sharing site, and it could very well have profiled foreign users of sites like WikiLeaks and monitored their access to that and other websites.

However, the documents—one an internal NSA “frequently asked questions” Wiki page and the other a set of GCHQ slides on psychological operations—do not provide a picture of how much information about people accessing WikiLeaks was shared between the GCHQ and the NSA. And while the documents point to NSA monitoring of Pirate Bay, there’s no suggestion of how the information gathered was used or if it was used at all.  A third, unpublished document shows that the Obama administration apparently encouraged foreign governments in 2010 (including the UK) to pursue charges against WikiLeaks for the publication of diplomatic “wires” provided by Chelsea Manning, formerly known as Bradley Manning.

The GCHQ slide deck, published in 2012, highlights two tools used to conduct social networking, Web monitoring, and profiling. The first, called “Squeaky Dolphin,” pulls online activities within Web traffic caught by the agency’s monitoring systems. The monitoring systems are called “Airwolf” in the slides, which may be a UK codeword for the GCHQ’s equivalent of XKeyscore. That data includes webmail, blogs visited, YouTube views, Facebook “likes” clicked on websites themselves, and other data culled from individual users’ captured activity.

It runs those activities, captured in real-time, through IBM’s InfoSphere Streams processing software to create analytical feeds. Those feeds are then piped into a Splunk database and surfaced through a “dashboard” view that allows analysts to find trends in sentiment. As an example, the slides showed activity related to cricket matches in London and the surge in Facebook likes for Conservative member of Parliament Liam Fox. It can also be used to spot trends in traffic that might indicate upcoming events such as protests or other civil unrest.

While Squeaky Dolphin tends to look at things with a wider view, “AnticrisisGirl” is a bit more targeted. It can be used to passively monitor specific websites—including traffic to WikiLeaks, as the slides demonstrate. The tool can be tuned to a specific set of Internet user signatures or keywords, and it provides analytics of their behavior in real time, capturing search terms or direct Web addresses used to get to the sites in question.

Hollywood producer wants to take your guns…

Harvey_WeinsteinRemember “Bowling for Columbine”?  The anti-gun documentary that attempted to politicize the tragic school shooting at Columbine, Colorado, was wildly successful, both critically and commercially, and even won its writer/director, Michael Moore, an Oscar.

But while the film may have been entertaining, and may have even got some folks thinking about gun violence, it did little to move the needle on its presumptive goal: curbing gun ownership and weakening the National Rifle Association.  That’s because gun owners and the powerful lobby that represents them don’t care what Hollywood thinks of them, a lesson producer Harvey Weinstein will learn soon.

Weinstein “reluctantly” told Howard Stern that he’s planning a movie that will make the NRA “wish they weren’t alive.” in an exclusive interview pre-taped with Piers Morgan, he says that none other than Meryl Streep will star as an anti-gun senator (Feinstein?)

For so many reasons, Weinstein deserves a good, hard reality check:

  1. Obvious and almost comical hypocrisy. Weinstein’s profited immensely from portraying graphic gun violence in films such as “Kill Bill” and “Pulp Fiction.”  His sudden attack of social conscience is astounding and curiously timed. In the same Morgan interview, he says he’ll stop making movies that glamorize guns. But according to Internet Movie Database, “Kill Bill Vol. 3” and “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” are in the works. Maybe he means starting … now.
  2. Overtly ideological films — think “Rendition” and “Lions for Lambs” — bomb at the box office. Theatergoers don’t want to be lectured by Hollywood for two hours on what they think is wrong with the country.  If we’re to assume Weinstein is motivated by a deep concern about gun violence (and not sheer arrogance), then it’s also worth pointing out that he’s got the wrong target. The NRA represents law-abiding gun owners, not criminals. A gangbanger in Chicago doesn’t care about the NRA, isn’t motivated or supported by the NRA, and may not even know what the NRA is. In vowing to take down this powerful organization supported by millions of law-abiding citizens, Weinstein will simply end up empowering and emboldening it.
  3. The effort most certainly won’t rid the country of guns (a goal he’s admitted to having, unless there’s another Holocaust in which case he very much wants a gun, or something.)

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade association for the U.S. firearms industry, calculates that from 2002, the year “Bowling for Columbine” came out, to 2011, there’s been a 54.1% rise in the number of federal background checks, one way of measuring an increase in gun sales. And remember, that movie was actually successful.  This proves the nation’s gun owners not only don’t care about Hollywood’s dictates but Washington’s either, in the year since the tragic Newtown, Connecticut, shooting — and despite significant efforts from the Obama administration and other Democrats to push increased gun control, gun sales are up 8%.   Just another scumbag producer thinks he can impose his will on the American people.  Idiot.
