TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

Great news for gun makers -- as heard on CBS

Don't buy all the BS from the second amendment fanatics.  Smart guns are good for the gun industry.

The anti-gun Violence Policy Center said this in a background report: 

"Would smart guns entice individuals who otherwise wouldn’t buy a gun to bring a weapon
into their home?

Making smart guns available could increase the chances of selling guns to Americans who
currently do not own them. A March 1997 survey conducted by the National Opinion Research
Center found that, of respondents who were “unlikely to buy a gun in the future,” 35 percent
would “consider buying a handgun that would only fire for the owner of the gun.” Packaged
with a strong sales pitch, the technology could penetrate new markets for a gun industry that is
facing long-term declines in household and personal gun ownership, putting more families at risk
from the well-documented hazards that accompany bringing a gun into a previously gun-free
home."

And always remember more guns means less crime.
