  1. "The FDA recommends that young adults (between the ages of 18 and 40 years) internally contaminated with (or likely to be internally contaminated with) radioactive iodine take the recommended dose of KI (potassium iodide). Young adults are less sensitive to the effects of radioactive iodine than are children." https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/radiation/emergencies/ki.htm
  2. NJ nuclear targets from the NY Times (1985. Reagan-era. Remember how Reagan was going to start WW3? Not defeat the Soviet Union without firing a shot. Yeah, right!) https://www.nytimes.com/1985/11/24/nyregion/experts-list-potential-targets-for-bombing-in-nuclear-war.html Fort Monmouth hasn't been active for years -- but the blast radius from other targets like Earle overlaps. Other than the extreme northwestern corner of the state, the Pine Barrens and Cape May, the state looks pretty bad.
  3. Chaos is the goal of the media.
  4. I've been trying to determine how this would impact NJ without too much success. That's a question that the inquiring reporter's mind might naturally ask, if there were any reporters with inquiring minds left. But if the goal is to create panic, well, they are doing their jobs. According to the EIA, Florida, GA and NC and VA and MD have no operating oil refineries. But Delaware has 1, PA has 3 and New Jersey has 2 - as well as a port. So maybe not as much of an impact at this end of the pipeline. https://www.eia.gov/dnav/pet/PET_PNP_CAP1_DCU_SFL_A.htm https://www.eia.gov/state/analysis.php?sid=NJ I did top up the gas tanks of of our 2 cars. I remember that there was a toilet paper shortage not too long ago, while there was no shortage of unrefined trees.
  5. My guess has been that was because the conservative justices think that John Roberts has become an unreliable vote. By the time Becerra gets to SCOTUS, the makeup of the court is likely to differ from what it is now.
  6. I shipped my 15 round rifle magazines to my cousin in Texas. If Duncan v Becerra goes our way (It DID!) and makes its way to the SC (we'll see), I'll buy a bunch of standard-capacity magazines in celebration. In the meantime, my cousin can use the 15 round mags as beater mags at the range. (I think they have essentially no value, otherwise.) My >10 round pistol magazines reside with my daughter in Pennsylvania. If Duncan v Becerra (etc), or if I buy a house in a free state (increasingly likely), I'll retrieve them. If not, they are in a box addressed to my cousin in Texas. The problem with paid storage is that it the cost can soon exceed the value of the contents. Do you have a friend/relative in Pennsylvania?
  7. In the past, I made vertical frames -- 6' fence posts with steel fencing. I grew cucumbers on them, and even managed to grow vine-ripened cantaloupe (that I suspended the fruit with canvas strips so they wouldn't break loose from their own weight). Unfortunately I'm down to just tomatoes, peppers and zucchinis now because the trees have grown, shadowing the gardens. A bigger problem than the trees has been the deer recently.
  8. Maybe they have a New Jersey version of Holder's "Operation Fast and Furious" and they are supplying firearms to drug gangs in Trenton, Newark and Camden?
  9. https://www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/January-2012/Gangs-and-Politicians-An-Unholy-Alliance/ Gangs are a critical component of the political machine in Chicago. (Probably most other large cities, too.) The city politicians are "worried" about gangs, but not in the way that most people would think.
  10. The Assembly members who passed the most recent law (and the older law) didn't write either law -- or probably even read either law. Whatever anti-gun group wrote the law told them, "If you want our support and money, pass this law". The group didn't search the NJ code to find that a law was already on the books. The anti-gun laws in all the blue states are pretty much cut and paste versions of each other. Requiring trigger locks on a firearm without specifying that it must be unloaded first is dangerous and both the new and old laws do that.
  11. 1. Reaction to Orange Man Bad. 2. Republicans in the state are their own worst enemy.
  12. Not unless a LEO needs to enter a home for some other reason. Domestic disturbances are probably high on the list. I think "in my home" is "a location which a reasonable person would believe to be secure", but the majority of the New Jersey legislature is not reasonable people. (Or smart people.)
  13. Isn't A3696 in conflict with District of Columbia v. Heller? If a firearm is locked up, it's not accessible, is it? (Requiring a trigger lock on a a firearm without specifying that it must be unloaded first is probably one of the dumbest and most dangerous laws that the NJ Assembly has ever passed.) https://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/07-290.ZO.html
