Did you know - A Guide to Shipping Firearms

@usps-official won’t ship guns because they’re a bunch of communist and 2nd amendment hating bastards but we at FedEx will gladly ship your firearms. Here are some tips to ensure proper shipping of your firearms.

You can ship without an FFL - That’s right, you can. You can ship to anyone in your state as long as they are legally allowed to posess a firearm. This is only within your state of residence. Offer may not be valid in Communist states such as California, any state that has New in their name and Pennsylvania.

You can ship yourself a firearm to a different state - If you are going hunting or want to go celebrate the 4th of July with your cousins in Louisiana, especially Erin because damn man I saw her facebook and she is some kind of fine. You can do it! Only you can take posession of the firearm and open the package.

DO NOT SHIP GUNS THROUGH USPS - They won’t take them unless you are an FFL because they’re a bunch of pricks who want to step all over your Gadsen flag tattoo. FedEx will ship your firearms. You could use UPS but lets be honest, the last time they were relevant was in 1984.

DO NOT LABEL YOUR PACKAGE AS CONTAINING A FIREARM - You’d be surprised how many packages attempt to get ship with labels clearly stating they are an AR, AK or Handgun. Dindu’s are just itching to get their hands on these legal firearms and we are trying to help you retain your firearms.

Ammunition must be shipped in a separate package - Due to federal regulation ammunition can not be shipped by you trough any service with a firearm. You must ship it in a separate package. You must also label the package as containing ammunition. This includes any ammunition left in the magazine that is locked in your firearm and any rounds in the chamber. Please clear all firearms prior to packaging for shipment. FedEx is not responsible if we hit a bump and your gun goes off hitting a USPS truck in the process.

When Shipping to an FFL include a photocopy of your driver’s license. They are legally required to document who shipped them a firearm and this is the easiest way to have your documentation on file. Please do not include any nude photographs of you posing with the firearm or any photographs of an adult in a fur suit posing with the firearm.

Package with care - Use tension sheets or bubble wrap to securely pack your firearm. Ask local gun shops and pawn shops if they have boxes that your firearm can fit into for shipping. Many keep their boxes just for this purpose. Please do not wrap your firearm in a roll and a half of ductape then hand draw with sharpie a label on it. I’m looking at you Greg.

Register your shipment and ask for a signature upon delivery. Failure to do so can result in improperly delivered firearms. We always strive to get our packages to their proper destination however after we have deposited them at the correct address it is no longer our responsibility what happens to the package post delivery. This can include theft so its always best to ask for a signature to ensure that the package has been properly delivered. Unlike our competitor at USPS who shall remain nameless. They just drop stuff on your door step and walk away. What if you don’t even have a door? They just leave it at the first random door they come across.

Legally to FedEx a firearm is only the receiver that has a serial number on it. Any other part of the weapon be it barrel, trigger, guard, sight and so on is treated the same as a standard package.

DO NOT believe the lies that anti-gun groups spread. We have always been a company that ships firearms from our inception and we appreciate your business. We have a partnership with the NRA and several other firearm manufacturers for shipping.


Hobby Lobby fined $3 million over smuggled Iraqi artifacts

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Federal prosecutors say Hobby Lobby Stores has agreed to pay a $3 million federal fine and forfeit thousands of ancient Iraqi artifacts smuggled from the Middle East that the government alleges were intentionally mislabled.

Prosecutors filed a civil complaint in New York on Wednesday in which Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby consented to the fine and forfeiture of thousands of tablets and bricks written in cuneiform, one of the earliest systems of writing, as well as other artifacts that prosecutors say were shipped without proper documentation.

Hobby Lobby executed an agreement to purchase over 5,500 artifacts in December 2010 for $1.6 million. Prosecutors say acquisition of the artifacts “was fraught with red flags” and that packages bore shipping labels that described their contents as “ceramic tiles.”

A dealer based in the United Arab Emirates shipped packages containing the artifacts to three different corporate addresses in Oklahoma City. Five shipments that were intercepted by federal customs officials bore shipping labels that falsely declared that the artifacts’ country of origin was Turkey.

In September 2011, a package containing about 1,000 clay bullae, an ancient form of inscribed identification, was received by Hobby Lobby from an Israeli dealer and accompanied by a false declaration stating that its country of origin was Israel.

Prosecutors say Hobby Lobby has agreed to adopt internal policies for importing cultural property and training its personnel.

In a statement, Hobby Lobby President Steve Green says the company cooperated with the government and “should have exercised more oversight and carefully questioned how the acquisitions were handled.”

Green said Hobby Lobby began acquiring a variety of historical Bibles and other artifacts in 2009.

“Our passion for the Bible continues, and we will do all that we can to support the efforts to conserve items that will help illuminate and enhance our understanding of this Great Book,” Green said.

94 Days into Adventures in Cowriting, enter madness

Me: what if we just completely trolled everyone and elliot just spelled his name with one t in all your fics and two ts in all mine ahaha

and then you’d have people writing subversive Elliot/Jonah and Elliott/Nick fics and the madness would never end

Status of a cowriting project gone wild, as of day 94: 29 google documents, 7 ships (that we’ve either written or talked about writing, not counting the one where the cat is a catboy, or the fictional OTP that only exists in the fictional narrative within the narrative that recurs throughout all the versions of this story where said fictional narrative exists), multiple renaming sessions, in which we finally cave and rename ALL THREE of our main characters from their original incarnations, and an endless string of docs that just look like this:

EGT: I think they are such a mess it’s like throwing cards up in the air lol 
They land however and everybody just moves on
They’re just not one of those otps you’re like “oooh they find each other in every incarnation”
Like no they definitely do not, the conditions have to be just right for them

Me: i think also that, like, if you’d been writing them by yourself of course they’d’ve wound up seeming like an ‘in every universe they ~ find each other ~’ kind of OTP
but because we were starting with these characters we loved, just like fanfiction, we each want different versions of happiness for these characters.

like the amount of huge disparity between the narrative control you exercise over a story as “the author” of “the canon” versus the utter lack of narrative control there is in just building characters and seeing where they go and why and allowing multiple interpretations of them to build out of those characterizations is really fascinating

EGT: I think it’s mostly that we co-wrote
So like left up to me there would have been no other possibility 
And left up to you there would have been no other possibility 
But because there were two writers there was an immediate fandom with conflicting interpretations

Me: which is hilarious and pathetic and magical lolol

Hobby Lobby to forfeit ancient Iraqi artifacts in settlement with DOJ

By Dan Whitcomb

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Arts and crafts retailer Hobby Lobby has agreed to forfeit thousands of illegally smuggled ancient Middle Eastern artifacts obtained from antiquities dealers for a Bible museum headed by its president, the company and U.S. officials said on Wednesday.

The forfeiture will include some 5,500 artifacts purchased by Hobby Lobby Inc that originated from the region of modern-day Iraq and were shipped under false labels, as well as an additional $3 million to settle the civil charges, the Department of Justice said in a statement.

“The protection of cultural heritage is a mission that (Homeland Security Investigations) and its partner U.S. Customs and Border Protection take very seriously as we recognize that while some may put a price on these artifacts, the people of Iraq consider them priceless,” Angel Melendez, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in New York, said in the statement.

Privately-held Hobby Lobby said that it was new to the world of antiquities when it began acquiring historical items for its Museum of the Bible in 2009 and made mistakes in relying on dealers and shippers who "did not understand the correct way to document and ship” them.

The company’s president, Steve Green, is the chairman and founder of the Museum of the Bible, which is under construction in Washington, D.C.

The artifacts being forfeited include cuneiform tablets and bricks, clay bullae and cylinder seals. Cuneiform is an ancient system of writing on clay tablets.

“At no time did Hobby Lobby ever purchase items from dealers in Iraq or from anyone who indicated that they acquired items from that country,” Green said in his statement. “Hobby Lobby condemns such conduct and has always acted with the intent to protect ancient items of cultural and historical importance. …

“We have accepted responsibility and learned a great deal,” Green added, saying that the company has now "implemented acquisition policies and procedures based on the industry’s highest standards.”

Federal prosecutors say that when Hobby Lobby, which is based in Oklahoma City, began assembling its collection it was warned by an expert on cultural property law to be cautious in acquiring artifacts from Iraq, which in some cases have been looted from archaeological sites.

Despite that warning and other red flags the company in December 2010 purchased thousands of items from a middle-man, without meeting the purported owner, according to prosecutors.

A dealer based in the United Arab Emirates shipped packages containing the artifacts to three Hobby Lobby corporate addresses in Oklahoma City, bearing false label that described their contents as “ceramic tiles” or “clay tiles” and the country of origin as Turkey.

B.A.P Le Noir AU: Ch.1 The Mastermind

Yayz! Second part is here people! I’m so happy with the responses I’ve been getting for the prologue since this is the first time I’ve written an AU so please continue commenting and giving me feedback so I can improve and provide better writing! Thank you all and I hope you enjoy this chapter as well because the oh so talented, sexy, and handsome Himuchan is in it :D

Originally posted by damchucake


One, two, three, ten, twenty. The amount of times BAP appeared at Le Noir increased since your first actual encounter with them. You had thought, perhaps, there was an influx of “business” deals that needed to be handled, but as their appearances became more frequent, you found that these visits were more for pleasure than business. These leisure visits were often done alone. Himchan sitting at the bar and silently flipping through files. Yongguk seating himself in one of the lounge chairs, the same old lighter in hand, sipping on his scotch in deep contemplation. Zelo holed away in the corner of the club, watching the people warily. The same stone cold expression. Youngjae playing a round of darts with fellow club attendees, betting large sums of money and winning most of the time. Daehyun flirting with some of the female patrons that stopped by, filling the club with laughter and giggles. Jongup sitting alone, a book in hand with a sly smirk on his lips. At times you would catch him blatantly staring at you, a predatory glint in his eyes.

has anyone told the persona team that captain kidd was

like

the least rebellious pirate ever

he was only a pirate due to a misunderstanding

like

he was a privateer

and one day he attacked a merchant ship

and the documents on board all said it was like a french ship or something

but it was actually a very important indian ship

and the indians got really pissed at the british government and demanded kidd’s head

so kidd was branded a pirate and executed

so i feel like literally any other pirate (even one of the female ones) would have made a better persona for ryuuji

anonymous asked:

Honestly we need receipts about all the anon hate that the ih Fandom got from the ir Fandom just so we can compare the amount hate that ih got more

We don’t really need that n it’s obvious to everybody even remotely involved in the bleach fandom . It is a fact that the ichihime fandom gets a LOT more of anon hate than the contrary ( and this is even more telling knowing that the good majority of the ichihime fandom has a big part of the ichiruki fandom blocked ) . 

I think it would be a waste of time to try to ‘ document’ ichiruki anon hate and it would give those pitiful anons attention they do not deserve . 

We know what the ichiruki fandom is and we don’t need to focus on documenting the ship wars ,  we should all strive to end it . Of course oftentimes it’s difficult , like today for example someone implied kubo was an idiot because he failed to notice the ichiruki / isshinmasa in his own work and like this is so stupid and annoying you want to try to argue and start shit ( and I did but I’m ashamed of it ) but really we should ignore it and try to be the bigger person in this ship war . 

We can be the bigger person here because we are not bitter contrary to the ichiruki fandom. Our ship became canon , the novels confirmed that ichigo was in love with orihime during the manga which proved right the ichihime fandom . We have what we wanted so we have to try to be kind to those who didn’t even though they are real dicks most of the some time .

If you’re still taking SW prompts, maybe something from the Soulmark AU? Obiwan being utterly confused about being pampered in captivity. (Sorry Asks aren’t working for me right now)

Welcome to the Empire, Obi-Wan Kenobi. 

You have no idea how much we’ve wanted to meet you.

The first sentence is scrawled in neat, almost mechanical handwriting down the soft flesh of his inner right arm. The second is nestled beneath it, elegant swirls lending it a delicate, almost disingenuous air.

Obi-Wan finds himself staring at his soulmarks quite a lot these days.

He’s spent the majority of his life trying to avoid looking at them, to be honest. The redhead has dim, almost faded memories of the creche, of a time when empire was a foreign word to be puzzled over. The transition to sharp-pain-fear-run! is seared undeniably in his memory.

It was the transition that also prompted his teachers and fellow initiates to begin looking at him, something strange and distrustful flaring behind their eyes. The words on his arm - they were supposed to be a private matter, something entered into his medical records as a matter-of-course and protected under healer-patient confidentiality.

Except suddenly his words had assumed a greater importance then previously suspected. One that invited suspicion down upon him in turn.

Xanatos. The whisper came. His Master had already let one of his padawans Fall; how much easier would it be another to follow the same dark path?

The whispers, the eyes, the outright suspicion that has followed him for nearly his entire life is a start contrast to his current circumstances.

The first time Obi-Wan sank onto the bed in his quarters, he was convinced that he was drowning. It took a determined effort to wrench himself free of the softness that had threatened to enfold him in its depths. And the room itself was - too big. Yes, far too big - the ornate draperies and wall hanging (all in his favorite colors, and how in the world had they discovered that?) were not helping.

Neither was the frankly decadent ‘fresher. Complete with marble tiling, a bath tub inlaid with gold and what could only be mother-of-pearl, a water-shower so big he could have hosted a dinner party in its depths, and any number of shampoos and shaving implements…

Obi-Wan had nearly cried when Lady Vader (call me Padme) had shown him to the on-ship library, replete with documents and accounts he’d thought lost with the Temple. Lord Vader (burning gold eyes staring down at him, a smirk that conjured an answering pulse of heat and the fierce promise of possession, or protection) had had to practically drag him from its depths when he’d forgotten a meal for the third time in a row.

And he can’t even get drunk in an attempt to ignore the determined pampering his soulmates are attempting to smother him in because the bottle sitting innocently to one side is Corellian brandy.

His favorite.

Be My Sanctuary

Happy Birthday @accidental-rambler I hope you are having a wonderful one! Please forgive the mistakes in this little birthday snipett, I wrote it super fast (although Angie tried to help!)

Caroline stared at the boxes strewn about the mess of her apartment as afternoon sunshine faded into dusk. She was running out of time. Raking her hands through her bangs, she cursed beneath her breath and set about taping the last cardboard box with gritted teeth.

New York was supposed to have been a new start. A place above ground and away from Underhill, the endless crawl for power in the Courts there. NYC was neutral territory that wasn’t affiliated with any court, it was a vibrant mix mash of fae and unseelie, human and monster. It was why she’d fled there when her betrothal had gone sideways, it was the best place for her to disappear, a fae among other fae. New York City was a sanctuary of sorts, but it was one that was ruthlessly enforced by those in charge.

Sitting at the top of that power was Klaus Mikaelson. A ruthless son of a bitch, and hardly what she’d call fair, but he kept the city in an uneasy balance with the force of his temper alone. She’d heard rumors of the extent of his magic (and his parentage, hinting that he was born in the Unseelie Courts) but she’d pushed that aside for her truths of him.

The struggle not to hit him over the head with something heavy, preferably that chair he liked to recline in while lording his greatness, was a constant one.

Klaus had been amused by her ignorance, condescending of her determination to carve a life for herself and an utter ass about what he considered her personal failings. Particularly when she’d first arrived in the Big Apple. But Caroline was used to dealing with other people’s expectations, their preconceived notions about her pretty face and sunshine magic.

It’d taken her five years for her claw her business into the black. Five years of networking, of sweating, of finding herself entangled in a wild assortment of nonsense. She’d suffered through leprechaun feuds, through dwarf embargoes and once, a pixie hunting party. All the while, Klaus watching her from the shadows with that cocky smile and glittering gaze, daring her to give up.

To run back to the White Court and her family.

Two weeks ago, that biting antagonism between her and Klaus had snapped. She’d found herself sprawled across his desk, nails leaving gouges in the pristine wood as she came. Multiple times. Her temperature heated every time she thought of it even as she tried to ruthlessly push them aside.

She didn’t regret the sex. Klaus had been a pain in her side and a much too frequent guest in her dreams and fantasies for her to really deny that she’d wanted him. It was her knee jerk reaction to his murmured request for an actual date, the instinctual panic that had left ice in her lungs that left her cheeks hot with embarrassment instead of lust.

God, the words she thrown at him, standing naked in his office. The frigid silence as she’d yanked on her clothes and shoes. The gaping void between them that she hadn’t figured out how to apologize for and now it was probably too late.
