postheadericon Is A Glock(s) Gen 5 Coming This Month? Quite Possibly…

The rumor mill is buzzing with a new release, or releases, of a Gen 5 Glock… or… Glocks.

It’s widely unknown whether the rumors are true, but we do have a little information to go on.

From Outdoorhub.com;

A photo posted by a law enforcement officer to the Glock Talk forums shows a slip marked “Gen 5,” and the officer claims he was able to pre-order a Glock 17 Gen 5 through his dealer. The photo of the pre-order slip can be seen below:

There isn’t a picture of any new Glocks floating around and even if there were, we’d wait for official confirmation from Glock themselves before posting. Because as we know, rumors are just that.

But to add a little more fuel, another little tidbit was released around the same time, and it deals with a Glock event.

If there is a launch party, we weren’t invited. *keeping tears inside while slowly dying in a quiet corner all alone*

When (if) the news drops, we’ll let you know as soon as we do. Hopefully, we’ll be all happy soon with a signed NDA *cough* GLOCK *cough* but until then, enjoy the rumors.

postheadericon Concealed Weapon Detection System Being Implemented For The First Time. Coming To A Neighborhood Near You?

In Las Vegas, Nevada, it is perfectly legal to carry your concealed firearm into a casino. If they find out and ask you to leave, however, you’ll need to oblige or face trespassing charges. If you’ve carried inside a casino before undetected, that’s about to change.

Patriot One Technologies, Inc. is about to kick off an experiment of it’s new detection system. They’ve partnered with Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino to implement the system in public for the first time. But what does it do?

The system integrates with current security systems to alert the property of any visitors who are carrying a concealed weapon. In short, the system uses “Cognitive Microwave Radar” to detect any unwanted items, and “related hardware can be installed in hallways and doorways to covertly identify weapons and to alert security of an active threat entering the premises.”

If this test proves to be successful in their eyes, it could open the flood gates for companies looking to use this technology in their own locations.

I envision a lot of law-abiding citizens being approached by security and then being asked to leave the property, simply for concealing their legal firearm. Alternatively, they could be asked to leave their firearm in their car, opening it up to theft. Or, as many casinos have, they will let visitors store their firearm in a safe deposit box on property. Lots of good it’ll do, though, if you need it.

Let’s make this easy:

A bad guy walks into a casino with a gun. By the time security sees that he’s carrying a firearm and gets to him, he’s already shot 6 people.

A good guy walks into a casino with a gun. By the time security sees that he’s carrying a firearm and gets to him, he’s already sitting down at a table and minding his own business.

Not to mention if the system doesn’t detect the firearm at all, in which case the only issue is still the bad guy with the gun.

To any businesses who implement this new technology, I can assure you that I won’t be a visitor to any of your properties. I feel that I’m not alone.

Furthermore, I feel it’s only fair that a participating business be required to post a sign that alerts visitors of the invasive technology.

Press Release:

postheadericon Microsoft HoloLens is coming to Japan

TOKYO — Nov. 29, 2016 — Microsoft Corp. announced on Tuesday that Microsoft HoloLens, the world’s first self-contained holographic computer running Windows 10, will be available for preorder in Japan starting Dec. 2. Devices will begin to ship in early 2017.

Today’s news comes just six weeks after Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition and Microsoft HoloLens Commercial Suite expanded globally to six new markets. With this milestone HoloLens is now available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States (including Puerto Rico).

“Our mission at Microsoft is to bring mixed reality to every person and organization on the planet,” said Alex Kipman, technical fellow, Microsoft Windows and Devices Group. “Since January 2015 we have been hard at work to bring the vision of mixed reality to life. It has been inspiring to see what has been created by our partners, and the team remains in awe of the way developers are using HoloLens. We can’t wait to see what everyone in Japan creates when they get their hands on HoloLens.”

Commercial customers breaking new ground with Microsoft HoloLens

HoloLens has transformed how companies work with their three-dimensional data, delivering new ways to design, create, collaborate and explore. More information about how companies are changing the way they work is available here.

One of the companies innovating with HoloLens is Japan Airlines. Using Microsoft HoloLens, Japan Airlines has developed two proof-of-concept programs to provide supplemental training for engine mechanics, and for flight crew trainees who want to be promoted to co-pilot status. Microsoft is very excited to have Japan Airlines on this holographic journey.

Microsoft’s mixed-reality movement is just beginning

Today, HoloLens customers are developing innovative solutions that are already having a positive impact on their business. These customers are the early adopters of the kind of mixed-reality solutions that are poised for exponential growth in the years to come. According to IDC, “worldwide revenues for the augmented reality and virtual reality market will grow from $ 5.2 billion in 2016 to more than $ 162 billion in 2020.”* Windows 10 will be updated in 2017 to include Windows Holographic, the platform that powers the mixed-reality experiences enabling people to perceive the world differently, break down barriers, and bring the virtual and the physical worlds together.

Microsoft HoloLens available to preorder in Japan now

Microsoft first announced HoloLens in January 2015 and shipped to developers and commercial partners in Canada and the United States on March 31, 2016. Microsoft HoloLens is available for preorder Dec. 2, exclusively from the Microsoft Store in Japan, with devices starting to ship in early 2017.

postheadericon A Federal Gun Registry Could Be Coming To Hawaii

By Robert Farago via The Truth About Guns

“Hawaii could become the first state in the United States to enter gun owners into an FBI database that will automatically notify police if an island resident is arrested anywhere else in the country,” bigstory.ap.com reports. “Most people entered in the ‘Rap Back’ database elsewhere in the U.S. are those in ‘positions of trust,’ such as school teachers and bus drivers, said Stephen Fischer of the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division. Hawaii could be the first state to add gun owners.” The FBI describes the system thus . . .

The Rap Back Service provides authorized agencies with notification of criminal, and, in limited cases, civil activity of individuals that occurs after the initial processing and retention of criminal or civil transactions. Rap Back does not provide new authority to agencies, including the FBI, for collection of biometric and biographical information. It does, however, implement new response services to notify agencies of subsequent activity for individuals enrolled in the service. Including a more timely process of confirming suitability of those individuals placed in positions of trust and notification to users of criminal activity for those individuals placed on probation or parole.

I’m not exactly sure who can access this database, but the Firearms Owners Protection Act is completely clear on its prohibition against ANY federal database of guns or gun owners.

No such rule or regulation prescribed [by the Attorney General] after the date of the enactment of the Firearms Owners Protection Act may require that records required to be maintained under this chapter or any portion of the contents of such records, be recorded at or transferred to a facility owned, managed, or controlled by the United States or any State or any political subdivision thereof, nor that any system of registration of firearms, firearms owners, or firearms transactions or disposition be established.

Now a clever man might wonder WTF. The paper records of firearms sales — recorded on ATF Form 4473 — violates FOPA. And I wouldn’t argue the point. But Hawaii’s move is in direct contradiction of FOPA’s mandate. Which hasn’t stopped its supporters from a) proposing it and B) trumpeting it as the shape of things to come.

Supporters say the law would make Hawaii a leader in safe gun laws. Allison Anderman, a staff attorney at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, said the bill was “groundbreaking,” and that she hadn’t heard of other states introducing similar measures . . .

Sen. Will Espero, who introduced the bill, and the Honolulu Police Department said Hawaii could serve as a model for other states if it becomes the first to enact the law.

Surely the courts will strike this down! Don’t call gun control advocates Shirley.

Legal experts say the bill could face challenges, but would probably hold up in court. Recent Supreme Court rulings have clarified states’ ability to regulate gun sales, said David Levine, a law professor at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.

The bill will undergo a legal review process by departments including the Attorney General’s Office, which supported the bill, before Gov. David Ige decides if he will sign it into law, said Cindy McMillan, a spokeswoman for the governor.

The cost to enter names in the database will be covered by a fee paid by gun owners, which wasn’t defined in the bill.

If the Aloha State legislators’ legal advisors can read the U.S. Constitution, and not ignore what they read, this one won’t pass muster. But the smart money’s on Hawaii — the island state where gun rights go to die — passing this bill. Will the FBI play ball? Watch this space.

In any case, this move proves that the fight for gun rights in one state is a fight for gun rights in every state. In case you’re one of those let-California-stew-in-its-own-tyrannical-juices types.
