5 of the US demands that were dropped in negotiations with Iram

5 things that the Obama administration gave in on when they negotiated with Iran.  The agreement doesn't really seem enforceable as we will have to give the Iranians a heads up before any investigations occur.  Summarizing what was in The Hill newspaper and some other sources:

1. Banning uranium enrichment

2. In 2012, Obama promised ending their nuclear program. In 2013, he promised capping centrifuges at 500 to 1,500

what we got was 6,104

3. Shuttering secret nuclear facilities 

President Obama said in December 2013: “They don’t need to have an underground, fortified facility like Fordow in order to have a peaceful nuclear program,.  They certainly don’t need a heavy-water reactor at Arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program."

What we got was that nothing got shut down

4. Ending Iran's ballistic missile program

What we got was nothing

5. Finalizing  a 25-year sunset clause

10 year agreement, assuming that one believes that it is enforceable.

Letter in the Nashville Tennessean on who benefits from lowering the fees to get a concealed handgun permit

Letters logo

This letter appeared in the April 7th edition of the Nashville Tennessean
Poor people suffer at anti-gun bill elitism 
Re: “Shame of Senate: Guns for all but no time for people,” by by Keel Hunt, April 5.

Keel Hunt claims that the Republican legislature in Nashville only cares about “serving power, not people,” but Mr. Hunt is really the elitist.

One of the gun bills that Mr. Hunt dislikes that died in the legislature this year would have eliminated the $140 it costs to get a permit and pay for fingerprinting.

These fees stop poor minorities who live in high-crime urban areas from getting permits.

They are the very people who are most likely to be victims of violent crime, the ones who would benefit the most from being able to protect themselves.

Hunt seems oblivious to cities like Memphis, where the murder rate is more than four times higher than the U.S. rate.

Police are extremely important, but what happens when police can’t be there to protect people?

Nevada one step closer to getting rid of gun-free zones in colleges and government buildings

From the Las Vegas Review Journal:
A controversial bill that would allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry their guns on Nevada college campuses won approval in the Assembly on Monday and now goes to the Senate. 
The so called “campus carry” measure, Assembly Bill 148, is sponsored by Assemblywoman and gun rights advocate Michele Fiore, R-Las Vegas, along with many of her colleagues. 
The vote for passage was 24 to 15 with all but one Democrat, James Ohrenshall of Las Vegas, opposed. Three members were absent. . . . 
Washoe County Sheriff Chuck Allen is supporting the bill. 
Gov. Brian Sandoval has said he won’t take a position until and if a bill lands on his desk. 
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures in information dated from February 2015, 23 states let universities make the call on carrying concealed weapons, 20 ban weapons and seven, including Utah, Colorado and Idaho, allow firearms to be carried with some limitations. . . .
