In fiction, engineering, and thought experiments, unobtainium is any fictional, extremely rare, costly, or impossible material, or (less commonly) device needed to fulfill a given design for a given application. The properties of any particular unobtainium depend on the intended use. For example, a pulley made of unobtainium might be massless and frictionless; however, if used in a nuclear rocket, unobtainium would be light, strong at high temperatures, and resistant to radiation damage. The concept of unobtainium is often applied flippantly or humorously. For instance, unobtainium is described as being stronger than helium, and lighter than air.

The word unobtainium derives humorously from unobtainable followed by the suffix -ium, the conventional designation for a chemical element. It pre-dates the similar-sounding IUPAC systematic element names, such as ununoctium. An alternative spelling, unobtanium is sometimes used (for example, for the crypto-currency Unobtanium), based on the spelling of metals such as titanium.

Assuming a gun dealer is still in business after the first two requirements, the last one will do them in.

Although it may sound like the anti-gunners’ fantasy bill that will never become reality, it is literally being lobbied in the State Capitol right now. They are seriously pushing for it.

Come-Back-With-A-Warrant-DoormatFrom TTAG:

There’s a very dangerous game being played here. Much like with the terrorist watch list, people could be added to these secret no-gun lists at any time (and even by mistake) and then get a lovely knock on their door from the friendly local FBI agent to come violate their constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.

So much for due process (the comments in that TTAG post are interesting… .  Especially as some anti’s showed up).

Another reason to get rid of the current administration…. .  And to fear Hillary, Sanders, etc.

indexRegarding the Supreme Court:

… can you imagine any replacement appointed by Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Martin O’Malley or Bernie Sanders who would assert: “Self-defense is a basic right” and “the central component” of the Second Amendment’s guarantee of an individual’s right to keep and bear arms? 

Answer, No.  I cannot imagine that.
