TRANSCRIPT: NY GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO ADDRESSES NRA LAWSUIT AND CONDEMNS THE ORGANIZATION'S ILLEGAL BUSINESS PRACTICES WHILE GUEST ON MSNBC


Monday morning, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo addressed the NRA's lawsuit against New York State and condemned the organization's "Carry Guard" insurance during an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe with Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough and John Heilemann. The Governor today sent a letter calling on other governors to follow New York's lead and block the sale of the NRA's "Carry Guard" program, which provides liability insurance to gun owners for certain acts of intentional wrongdoing. The Governor issued the letter as part of a national effort to block the program after a state investigation found that the program was illegal under New York State law, leading to penalties against insurance companies involved. On Friday, New York State filed a motion to dismiss an NRA lawsuit against New York that suggested the state's actions were a threat to "the NRA's corporate existence and its advocacy mission."

A transcript of the interview is available after the jump.

Dark Web 101 For Dummies

Through the web darkly...

You've heard about it. Dare to experience it?

"The darkweb"; "the deep web"; beneath "the surface web" – the metaphors alone make the internet feel suddenly more unfathomable and mysterious.

The dark web is the World Wide Web content that exists on darknets, overlay networks that use the Internet but require specific software, configurations or authorization to access.

According to Wikipedia, The darknets which constitute the dark web include small, friend-to-friend peer-to-peer networks, as well as large, popular networks like Tor, Freenet, I2P and Riffle operated by public organizations and individuals. Users of the dark web refer to the regular web as Clearnet due to its unencrypted nature.
