  1. Yet another net-loss for NJ gun owners. The 30 day limit stuff is just too cute. No punishment to the state or municipalities for breaking the law, just a mild "we might bother to make you tell us you broke the law, but don't worry we won't bother to do anything about it, so feel free to keep breaking law" do nothing recommendation. What a load of garbage.
  2. Are you serious? Ever heard of castle doctrine? Free men have a right to defend life, liberty, and property. If the shitbag in that news story didn't want to get ventilated maybe he should have considered getting a job instead of stealing shit that wasn't his. Guess what? NJ actually has castle doctrine. It is within your rights to defend your property with lethal force in the state of NJ. What a travesty, right?
  3. LOL. The NJ legislature, courts, and cops are not worried about Federal intervention on their unconstitutional laws. Even if Scalia didn't die, and even if a Federal Court actually deemed NJ law unconstitutional, not a single thing would change here. We would still have an AWB and no legal way to carry a gun. What really changed in DC? What really changed anywhere that it was difficult to get a gun. For all intents and purposes everywhere it was hard to get a gun before the big 2A cases in the past few years it is still hard to get a gun. One might even argue that things got worse in more places than they got better.
  4. You ever get printed for a nonresident CCW permit? The officer in the cop shop I went to thought I was applying for an out of state LEO gig at first. You should have seen the look on his face when I mentioned nonresident CCW. I wish I had a video camera at the time. It was precious.
  5. When I said it has value, I did not mean that is has value for the People paying for it. Indeed the price We paid for it is way too high. That much data has immense value to an out of control government interested in making criminals out if it citiznery though.
  6. I'm of the mind that this is more devious and underhanded than all that. We already know that the NSA can pretty much call up any and all data that went into and out of a device just by looking up the phone number (text messages, email, phone conversations, etc.). What I think is happening is that they have whatever data they need with regard to San Bernardino, but were trying to sneak one past Apple. It sure looks like they are trying to get a new back door in an effort to expand the capabilities of their current domestic spying program. The domestic spying the NSA, et al, are doing is not worthless. It has great value, it just has nothing to do with Muslim extremist terr'ists. Like we were discussing in another thread about the WoD, this has nothing to do with safety*, and everything to do with control. *Please note, I am not implying that if they were actually trying to do this with safety in mind it would be just or legal. Indeed, even if this were actually stopping actual terrorist attacks I would still be very much against the intrusions on privacy and the 1st/4th amendment our Federal government is perpetrating on the American people.
  7. As I understand the encryption implementation, it's not possible to build the backdoor for one phone and one phone only. Secondly, at what cost to apple? They are in the business of making computing devices, not forensics. And certainly not in the business of undermining their own designs when it comes to privacy. It appears apple has built such a system. It is missing plausible deniability though. Courts have ruled a government can compel an individual to divulge their passwords. I don't agree with that, but legally they can. The only encryption solution I know of that provides plausible deniability is veracrypt (the fork of truecrypt). And unfortunately, veracrypt is woefully behind in full system encryption. Which means we really only have access to that solution until Windows 7 is obsolete.
  8. Leachim, it's a bit more complicated than that. If we make the safe comparison, the question would be, should we compel the safe manufacturer to compromise their safe design (affecting all their existing and future safes) in order to satisfy a warrant. I would suggest that is out of the scope of any warrant.
  9. The pin unlock on current (iphone6) and last gen (iphone5) devices is zero knowledge based upon what I'm reading. The only difference between gens is that one is hardware backed, and the other is firmware backed. What I mean to say is, they can't just magically unlock the device because they don't have the PIN, and can't guess the PIN due to the way they implemented the encryption.
  10. Infamous, I am not an iPhone/apple expert, but from what I understand, apple was giving the feebs all the backed up data on icloud. The phone had not been backed up for a few weeks, and the feebs wanted the rest of the data that was encrypted on the device but not yet backed up to the icloud. Current gen iphones make accessing this encrypted data impossible, as the encrypted data on the device is zero knowledge encrypted (only the holder of the key can unlock) and there is a chip on the device that ensures this. The previous gen devices do not have a hardware chip that ensures this zero knowledge encryption. But apple has implemented their OS in a way that makes it zero knowledge. That is, unless apple decides to release a firmware update that breaks that functionality (codes in a backdoor). The shitbag, cowards that shot up that holiday party had a previous gen device. The feebs asked apple to build, and more importantly digitally sign, a firmware update with a backdoor built in to circumvent the zero knowledge implementation. The reason the digital signature is so important is that Apple's devices won't accept a device update unless it is signed by Apple. I was just reading some reports circling that Apple is claiming that the feebs managed to change the shitbag's icloud password within 24 hours of the shitbag's date with 40 virgins. In doing so they scrubbed their last chance to recover the data, because if they had not changed the icloud password (which is different than the device encryption password) and connected the device to a trusted network, the device would have initiated a back up to the icloud, and apple would have furnished the data to the feebs. There are a few lessons here. First apple will spit out any data you have to the feebs ina blink if they can actually access the data. Second the feebs are either really dumb, or really evil. I say 50/50 chances on that.
  11. It's a sad day when a private company is doing more to protect the rights of man than the government that was built to do that same job. I must say I respect Tim cook for sticking by his company's commitment to their customers' privacy.
  12. Lol, carl. Back on topic of tobacco pipes. Before insurance companies outlawed such heinous, immoral, and irresponsible behavior, I smoked a tobacco pipe on and off for a while. Packing the bowl: Fill the bowl loosely with tobacco and pack it firmly down in the bowl with your finger. Then loosely fill the bowl again, but this time pack it half as firm as the previous pack. Lastly top the bowl off one last time, and gently pack the tobacco down. Lighting: Use a wooden match or zippo lighter and move the flame over the bowl while taking light but firm puffs from the pipe until the top layer of tobacco is charred. Stop lighting, and lightly tamp down the top of the char, creating a crust on top. This can be done with a pipe tamp tool, or anything you don't mind getting ash on. Relight and enjoy! Use pipe cleaners to clean the stem and mouthpiece frequently. Don't overheat a new bowl, and brush your teeth often, chicks can't stand the taste of manliness. J&R used to sell loose leaf tobacco for pipes. It's crazy cheap and good stuff. I have not been in a J&R in ages, but I'm sure they still sell it. I used to like the vanilla blend. It may have been called Ellis Island? Not sure.
  13. The reality of the situation has already been stated. This will become law in 3 years. Christie will veto it for the rest of his term. It will be on the next guy's desk within 3 months of his arrival and signed. If the 2nd amendment means enough to you to leave, then leave. Three years is tight, but doable, for an exit strategy depending on your situation. If the 2nd amendment only means enough to you that exporting your guns out of state is a reasonable inconvenience, then export them out of state for use out of state, and stay in NJ. Finally, if none of that is amenable, comply, bend over, and accept your rights are effectively gone. We literally do not have the numbers to effect change through civil action. There will be no Federal intervention, the Courts are done with the 2A for the foreseeable future. eta: One thing that had me thinking the other day, reminiscing about Heller and the various Supreme Court activity in the past decade. All that time, money, and effort expended and what did anyone actually gain from it? As far as I know it is still difficult to get guns in places where it was difficult to get guns. It is still effectively impossible to carry in places it was impossible to carry before. All that pomp and bloviating, and one could argue things are worse in as many places as they got better, if they got better at all.
  14. The now defunct NJCSD was no compromise. That outfit died due to lack of support, funding, and membership. It seems to me that many NJ gun owners are just fine with the horse shit laws of this state.
