Magazine Capacity California – USA Oil Production Surge
Federal judge blocks high-capacity ammunition ban in California
High-capacity gun magazines will remain legal in California under a ruling Friday by a federal judge who cited home invasions where a woman used the extra bullets in her weapon to kill an attacker while in two other cases women without additional ammunition ran out of bullets.
“Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts,” San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez wrote as he declared unconstitutional the law that would have banned possessing any magazines holding more than 10 bullets.
Police chiefs’ group welcomes Donald Trump’s ‘unwavering’ support
Cops across the country felt the love yesterday as President Trump proclaimed his administration’s support for police at the annual International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Orlando, Fla.
“I want to express my gratitude for what you do every day, protecting our communities, our families, our streets and taking down crime,” Trump told the crowd of nearly 3,000 top police officials yesterday. “What you do is keep America safe and no one does that better than you.
“My administration always honors, cherishes and supports the men and women in blue,” Trump said.
Arlington police Chief Fred Ryan said the outspoken support comes at a critical time.
“Scrutiny that municipal law enforcement has been under in the last few years has caused challenges with hiring, recruitment and retention,” Ryan told the Herald. “So any support from the corner office is helpful … and that is an easy answer, this administration has been unwavering in its support.”
A deafening silence from Trudeau on solving Canada’s oil-price crisis
If Prime Minister Justin Trudeau thought he was going to curry favour by visiting the heart of the oil industry Thursday, touting tax changes to make Canadian industry more competitive, he was deeply mistaken.
The oilpatch is demanding specific answers from Ottawa.
Energy officials want to know how Trudeau, along with the provincial government, will fix the massive discount pounding Canadian oil prices because of a lack of pipeline capacity in the country.
The Notley government is also disappointed.
It hasn’t been told if Trudeau’s government will help bankroll the purchase of new locomotives to increase oil-by-rail shipments out of Alberta.

US oil production has sustained its upward climb, underscoring nervousness about excess supply that has unravelled the market for crude.
The record 11.475m barrels per day that oil companies pumped in September was 1.98m b/d higher than in September 2017, the US government said on Friday. That was the second biggest annualised increase on record, after August this year.
The latest monthly snapshot is of particular interest as Opec and allied producers meet next week to weigh curbs on their output. US supply has increased at the same time as volumes from Saudi Arabia and Russia, energy giants that have co-ordinated on oil policy for the past two years.
