Samsung Said to be Readying Graphene Batteries, Capable of Insanely Fast Charge Times



Quote
According to a recent tweet from @evleaks, graphene batteries are on the horizon. Said to be working on the lithium-ion alternative is Samsung, who reportedly hopes to have at least on phone in either 2020 or 2021 with a graphene battery.

As @evleaks tweets, “Samsung is hoping to have at least one handset either next year or in 2021, I’m told, which will feature a graphene battery instead. Capable of a full charge in under a half-hour, they still need to raise capacities while lowering costs.”

Woman, 65, thrown to Ground and Tasered after Driving off to Avoid $80 ticket


Quote
The Oklahoma woman believed by driving off without signing the ticket, she would not be arrested. She learned otherwise.

Upset over an $80 ticket for a broken tail light, a 65-year-old Oklahoma woman refused to sign the citation, locking herself inside her truck before driving off, sparking a pursuit with the police officer who had pulled her over.

Debra Hamil is now facing a felony charge of assault on a police officer as well as a charge for misdemeanor resisting arrest over the incident which took place last Tuesday in Cashion, Oklahoma, according to KOKO News 5.

CA judge rules semi-auto rifles not protected under 2nd Amendment


Quote
A federal judge in California ruled last week that banning semi-automatic rifles is not a violation of the right to bear arms as afforded by the Second Amendment.

U.S. District Judge Josephine Staton of Santa Ana, Calif. ruled on July 22 to uphold the current state law banning the ownership, manufacture, or sale of “semiautomatic rifles and the bullet buttons that alter a conventional rifle into a rapid-fire weapon,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

I am offering 2 prices for the gun:

$1100 for the weapon with side rails/optic rail/1 magazine/extended charging handles.

$1500 for the weapon (with included accessories I just listed) and the Aimpoint T1 Micro. It was purchased new, specifically for the PS90. I have the original box and accessories for the optic, and itw as only ever mounted on the PS90. If you buy the set, it will already be zeroed for 198 ammo

FS in Bryan/College Station area (I'm not that far from Houston).

Beretta 92FS with Trijicon tritium night sights!!! (night sights for this are another $200 for a Beretta 92FS - installed by Tooltech, which is the only place that would install night sights on a normal 92FS)

Also comes with Elite II hammer installed!

I am only selling this gun because I of medical bills I need to pay.  I love this gun and would not be selling it otherwise.







Gun has worked 100% with NO issues at all. Gun looks great, and the tritium sights have perfect white circles around the tritium.

Special Hogue rubber grips with Bronze Medallions! These are like $50 grips!

Gun comes with factory case, manual and two factory 15 round magazines.

My price is $550! This is actually a steal for a 92FS WITH night sights. Be aware that Tooltech will NO LONGER install night sights on a 92FS. You can't get them installed at all any more on a regular 92FS model!!!

Please email me at goldfishpanda@Hotmail.com and the first "I'll take it" with an exchange of information gets it.

FACE TO FACE sales only. You must legally be able to own a handgun!

Parents and police are begging you: Please don't fire your gun into the air on July Fourth


Quote
"Shooting a gun into the air is not only reckless, it’s extremely dangerous," Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine said. "A bullet that is fired into the air will come back down with enough velocity to seriously injure or kill someone."

As Independence Day approaches, local police are reminding people to refrain from the dangerous practice of shooting their guns into the air as they shoot off fireworks.
