CHAPEL HILL (AP) — Shawn Turschak of Chapel Hill was tired of someone stealing McCain-Palin campaign signs from his yard.
So the man with a degree in electrical engineering hooked up a third sign to a power source for an electric pet fence Monday. Turschak also put up a surveillance camera. (Watch video here.)

About Kesselring Gun Shop
Kesselring Gun Shop Inc was started in 1947 by Clarence Kesselring who began as a machinist and self taught gunsmith. Clarence became frustrated in the late 1930′s that he could not find a good set of scope mounts. He began manufacturing his own design of scope mounts in the early 1940′s until opening Kesselring Gun Shop in 1947. Clarence’s son Ron Kesselring, worked alongside his Dad since he was a small boy. Ron began working full time in the business at the age of 18. Ron is world renowned for his vast knowledge of optics and competition shooting, winning the Canadian national Championship in .22 Silhouette two times, and tied for first in the U.S. Nationals once. Ron has also participated in the Washington State .22 Silhouette and .22 Gallery competitions placing as state champ twelve times! Today Ron operates Kesselring Gun Shop (still in it original location) with three of his boys, and 22 other committed employees. Kesselring’s always tries to offer you competitive pricing, and fast service. We can usually get our internet orders shipped the same day if the item is in stock. Kesselring Gun Shop primarily sells firearms, ammunition, optics and reloading supplies. We stock more items than listed on this website so please email or call if you do not find what you are looking for.

Not everyone that’s within the industry but working against us has the fortune to be quoted in USA Today. You all know where the data is; you know who the companies are. Start putting two and two together and getting the names out.
Is it an ideological purge or the self interests of millions of gun owners aligning? Does it matter?
In response to the recent article highlighting Dan Cooper’s personal political donations, the board of directors,shareholders and employees of Cooper Firearms of Montana, Inc would like to issue the following statement.
The employees,shareholders and board of directors of Cooper Firearms of Montana do not share the personal political views of Dan Cooper.
Although we all believe everyone has a right to vote and donate as they see fit, it has become apparent that the fallout may affect more than just Mr. Cooper. It may also affect the employees and the shareholders of Cooper Firearms.
The board of directors has asked Mr. Cooper to resign as President of Cooper Firearms of Montana, Inc.
Daily operations will continue with the competent staff currently in place in Stevensville, MT producing the finest, most accurate rifles money can buy.
Dan Cooper has spentall of his working life producing the highest quality rifles built here in the USA. He started with nothing but the American Dream and built that into firearms company anyone would be proud of. We firmly believe Dan stands by the2nd amendment.
We wish him all of the best in his future pursuits.
note, it doesn’t say he has left or resigned. My guess is he’s probably the majority shareholder, as well. We’ll see.
I have a bunch of videos that I encoded using a great (at the time) codec: the Intel “Indeo” codec. Sadly, I no longer have the source to these compressed videos and the installer and vodec I have for Indeo no longer works; I even tried installing the codec on XP, no dice. Wikipedia led me to Ligos, the current owner of the Indeo vodec. $15 later, I have a version of Indeo 5.2 that works on Vista! I transcoded a bunch of videos from Indeo 5.2 using Windows Movie Maker; these were published on Soapbox and Flickr. I appreciate that the quality of the videos is degraded due to transcoding; I hope you appreciate that staving off bit-rot is a painful task.
Because they have our best interests at heart (well, close to heart). At least, stuffing cash in your bra close to heart.
State Sen. Dianne Wilkerson was arrested this morning following an 18-month, “painstaking” undercover investigation, during which she was allegedly caught on tape stuffing a cash bribe into her bra and taking payoffs to push through a Roxbury nightclub liquor license, according to a complaint.
In other news, age and sex are a disability when it comes to gun purchases in Delaware.
Delaware State Police stopped Alvina Vansickle from purchasing a .22-caliber pistol for self-defense because she was too old and a woman, said Superintendent Col. Thomas MacLeish.
The outrage that followed led to the revelation that Delaware State Police had been keeping lists of gun buyers for years; state law requires them to destroy these records after 60 days.
Color me shocked – well, no, don’t. There is so much wrong here I have nothing more to say.
