The Huntsville Police Department on Thursday identified the two people killed in the Wednesday night shooting as IHOP employee Roy Brown and customer Roderick Turner. Brown was 56. Turner was 25.

By Matt Agorist – Re-Blogged From Freedom Outpost

Taft, CA — In a reaction to the Parkland, Fl shooting, California Gov. Jerry Brown just signed the strictest gun control laws in the county into action this month—again. Despite already having the strictest gun laws in the nation, California took it one step further, making it that much harder for citizens to defend themselves.

Taking the Fight to Malicious Cyber Actors

[I agree with some of this, and disagree with some. But, Cyber Attacks are a huge Economic problem. -Bob]

Recently, a Google executive, decrying the danger of  cyber attacks claimed that “Our society is in real jeopardy.”  I agree but rather than argue that passive “high-quality cybersecurity must be a pillar of modern society” I contend the opposite: It is time to take the fight to Malicious Cyber Actors.
