Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Monday will call for a package of gun restrictions, including a renewal of the state’s one-a-month limit on handgun purchases and a requirement that private vendors at gun shows perform background checks.
McAuliffe will also propose keeping guns away from people convicted of crimes related to domestic violence and revoking concealed-handgun permits for parents who are behind on child-support payments.

The police officer who was seen in video taking down Staten Island, N.Y., dad Eric Garner in what appeared to be a choke hold has told internal-affairs investigators that he never used the prohibited move, his lawyer told CNN.
“He indicated he never used a choke hold,” attorney Stuart London said. “He used a takedown technique he was taught in the academy. He said he never exerted any pressure on the windpipe and never intended to injure Mr. Garner.”

Radical self-styled sheik Man Haron Monis was on bail at time of siege

The radical self-styled Muslim Sheik Man Haron Monis behind the siege that saw 17 people held hostage in the Lindt cafe on Martin Place was a “damaged-goods individual” who could have lashed out because he felt he had “nothing to lose”, his former lawyer says.
Monis, who was killed during the final minutes of the siege in Sydney’s CBD, was no stranger to police; with a long rap sheet including allegations of sexual abuse and organising the murder of his ex-wife.
Monis was born Manteghi Bourjerdi and fled from Iran to Australia in 1996 where he changed his name to Man Haron Monis and assumed the title of Sheik Haron.
Lawyer Manny Conditsis, who represented Monis when he was charged last year with being accessory to the murder of ex-wife Noleen Hayson Pal, described the self-declared sheik as a “damaged-goods individual”.

As the regime of Bashar Assad disintegrates, the security of his chemical arsenal is in jeopardy. The No. 2 general in Saddam Hussein’s air force says they were the WMDs we didn’t find in Iraq.

King Abdullah of neighboring Jordan warned that a disintegrating Syria on the verge of civil war puts Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons at risk of falling into the hands of al-Qaida.

“One of the worst-case scenarios as we are obviously trying to look for a political solution would be if some of those chemical stockpiles were to fall into unfriendly hands,” he said.

The irony here is that the chemical weapons stockpile of Syrian thug Assad may in large part be the legacy of weapons moved from Hussein’s Iraq into Syria before Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Gas prices vs domestic oil production

Why are gas prices so low all of a sudden?

Well, let’s ask the communist President of Venezuela:

The broadcast networks may not want to give credit to hydraulic fracturing for increasing U.S. oil production and lowering global oil prices, but at least one angry world leader did just that.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro complained that fracking in the U.S. has “flooded” the world market and contributed to lower oil prices, a connection that broadcast networks’ evening news reports barely made recently.

“The oil they’re taking from (shale deposits) and the gas. They’ve flooded the international market to batter the Russian economy …, Iran and to hurt us, Venezuela,” Maduro said in a broadcast on VTV, a state-run TV channel in Venezuela, according to Fox News Latino.

Fracking has been one cause of increased oil production in…
