    "The phrase employs the gerundive, a verbal adjective, of deleo, delere, delevi, deletum, "to destroy",[2] (delendus, -a, -um). The future passive participle "delenda" (meaning "to be destroyed") is then combined with the verb sum ("to be"[3]) or parts thereof, adds an element of compulsion or necessity, yielding "is to be destroyed", or, as it is more commonly rendered "must be destroyed". This then forms a predicative adjective.[4] This construction in Latin is known as the passive periphrastic. Carthago, -inis being a feminine noun, the feminine gender of the gerundive is applied. The fuller forms Ceterum censeo Carthaginem esse delendam or Ceterum autem censeo Carthaginem esse delendam use the so-called accusative and infinitive for the indirect statement."


  2. Just that, it was a minor course of study for you. Often it is a sidebar that is useful to the major. A physics major might minor in math. A geology major might minor in geography. Or, it might be totally unconnected at all just to give some relief. A math major might minor in music or pottery.

    FPC has confirmed that the California Department of Justice has filed with the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) new proposed regulations on “Bullet-Button Assault Weapons”.

    According to OAL, the proposed regulations would alter Title 11 of the California Code of Regulations by adding sections 5470, 5471, 5472, 5474, 5474.1, 5474.2, 5475, 5476, 5477, 5478, and by amending existing sections 5469 and 5473.

    Bookmark this page (BulletButtonBan.com)! We will continue to update THIS page with new information as it becomes available.

    Update 6 – 12/30/16 – Apparently, once a firearm is a “Bullet-Button Assault Weapon,” you’re stuck with it unless you reconfigure the firearm and de-register it as an AW: “The release mechanism for an ammunition feeding device on an assault weapon registered pursuant to Penal Code section 30900, subdivision (B)(1) shall not be changed after the assault weapon is registered.”

    Update 5 – 12/30/16 – Photos will be required for AW registrations through CFARS: “Clear digital photos of firearms listed on the application. One photo shall depict the bullet-button style magazine release installed on the firearm. One photo shall depict the firearm from the end of the barrel to the end of the stock if it is a long-gun or the point furthest from the end of the barrel if it is a pistol. The other two photos shall show the left side of the receiver/frame and right side of the receiver/frame. These locations are typically where firearms are marked when manufacturing is complete. At the discretion of the Department the last two photos shall be substituted for photos of identification markings at some other locations on the firearm.”

    Update 4 – 12/30/16 – According to the document, “Assault Weapon registrations must be filed electronically using the Department’s California Firearms Application Reporting System (CFARS), at the following website: https://cfars.doj.ca.gov/login.do“. Also, “The Department will not register a firearm as an assault weapon unless the firearm is fully assembled and fully functional.”

    Update 3 – 12/30/16 – The proposed regulations filed with OAL for “Bullet Button Assault Weapons” and AB 857 serial numbering of firearms can be viewed at this link.

    Update 2 – 12/30/16 – Sources say that the new “assault weapon” registration will be through the DOJ’s California Reporting Information System (CRIS). According to DOJ, the “Benefits of Using CRIS” include that users can “report your firearms through an online application form using the internet which will eliminate the need to mail the application to DOJ and save time,” pay by “Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover,” and upload attachments like “Firearm receipts, pictures of the firearm, police reports, or other documents that may be helpful for DOJ staff to process your application.”

    Update 1 – 12/30/16 – DOJ has informed us that the regulations are being reviewed at OAL.


  4. Very cool! Back when I was in junior college I hung out in the art dept, especially the pottery and glass blowing area. I helped pull cane a few times. Now and then we would get it out to 15 feet or so and when we tapped it off it would self destruct like a PRD. Impressive.

    Also impressive is a 2" or 3" paperweight that is a PRD.

  6. It appears the bricks...never mind. Subdeacon Joe answered it much better than I ever could have with words just as I started typing.


    That is a neat trick though.



    I cheated, I followed the link in the comment on the video.
