Gabby Giffords, and her husband are starting an anti-NRA PAC

by Ziks511 / January 8, 2013 2:56 AM PST

Long past time, in my opinion.

Please note, this is not an anti-Second Amendment PAC, they support the Bill of Rights, but the NRA has exercised such a malign influence on the public discussion of the right to ridiculous weapons, Cop-killer bullets, Assault Weapons, extra-large magazines both for Assault Weapons and hand guns. I'm surprised they haven't been campaigning for Full Auto weapons, siince they represent Gun and Ammunition manufacturers.

All I can say is that I wish them well. The US needs to be out from under their baleful influence.

I've seen postings by long-term NRA members....

....who are growing weary of the NRA's absolutist stance on this issue. Ex-military, people in law enforcement, hunters, lots of people who own guns and think Americans should be able to own guns but feel the NRA is just too extreme.

NRA leadership fears some kind of domino effect, where if you take away 100-round magazines and assault rifles, and agree to common-sense registration and background checks, then the next thing you know we're in a dictatorship and people's homes are being ransacked by the Secret Police looking to take everyone's guns away. It's been a very lucrative form of paranoia for them, and hopefully its days are numbered.

Alex Jones could be a poster boy for those mental health background checks. Piers Morgan is probably lucky that CNN has metal detectors at the entrances.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
