Should You Tell the Cops You Have a Gun?
Post Date: 2017-09-16 18:55:57 by Deckard
The fatal shooting of Philando Castile last year by a Minnesota police officer reinvigorated an old debate about how people who are licensed to carry a concealed weapon (CCW) should handle interactions with the cops. The officer, who was acquitted of manslaughter in June, panicked during a traffic stop after Castile, a CCW licensee, told him he was armed. Some gun owners argue that disclosure is considerate and prudent, while others worry it will escalate a routine traffic stop into a tense, unpleasant, and possibly life-threatening encounter. But virtually everyone agrees it's important to know the relevant legal requirements, which vary from state to state.
Janet Reno, American Saint
Post Date: 2017-09-15 07:47:08 by Deckard
When former Attorney General Janet Reno died last November, the media heaped praise on her as if she had been justice incarnate. Reno had long enjoyed sainthood inside the Beltway; the Womens Bar Association of the District of Columbia even created a Janet Reno Torchbearer Award. But Renos record of deceit, brutality, and power grabs should not be forgotten by any American who cares about freedom. Shortly after Reno became attorney general in 1993, she approved the FBI final assault on the Branch Davidians holed up in a rickety building outside of Waco, Texas. She went on Nightline the evening after 80 people died in a conflagration and announced, I made the decision. ...
2 Years After CBP Took His Truck Because of a Few Forgotten Bullets, Still No Hearing
Post Date: 2017-09-14 07:10:16 by Deckard
Gerardo Serrano was on his way to visit his cousin in Mexico when Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at the border station in Eagle Pass, Texas, found a magazine containing five .380-caliber rounds in the center console of his pickup truck. Serrano, a U.S. citizen with a concealed-carry permit issued by Kentucky, said he did not realize the magazine was in the truck and offered to leave it behind as he continued on his journey. But as far as the CBP agents were concerned, those five cartridges made Serrano an international arms smuggler. Although he was never charged with a crime, the agents seized the truck, a 2014 Ford F-250. That was two years ago, and Serrano still has not been ...

Gun industry eyes a sneaky and dangerous new revenue stream Republicans hide a rollback on the regulation of gun silencers inside an otherwise innocuous federal lands bill Donald Trump campaigned on the claim that he would be a law and order president, and the 2016 Republican platform called for more gratitude and support for law enforcement and expressed concern over the murder rate soaring in our great cities. (That last part, at least, was pretty much a fabrication.) Despite that high-minded rhetoric, congressional Republicans are pushing forward with a stealth bill that will make life easier for contract killers, and make it more dangerous for ...
10 Dumbest Gun Control Laws That Need To Be Repealed Right Away
Post Date: 2017-09-12 05:44:38 by Deckard
Gun grabbers will try anything to limit our constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. While we appear to be taking back ground lost in previous decadesusually with data to prove that new laws have done nothing to make us any saferthere are a handful of laws in place that are particularly stupid. Today, lets take a look at those laws and just why they need to be killed. What this is not is an in-depth, legalese description of these laws, just a brief overview. I am not an attorney, after all. 1. The Hughes Amendment This was something tacked on to an otherwise pro-gun bill during the Reagan Era. Even if youre unfamiliar with the name, if youre a ...

It fascinates me when people say, “Why won’t gun owners compromise?”
Post Date: 2017-08-23 01:48:31 by Stoner
Let me throw a document into the equation: The Constitution. Yeah, yeah, old news. Youve heard it a million times. Well, when the Constitution says bear arms, during the period in which it was signed, it meant bear any kind of weapon. Civilians owned the cannons, not the government. Every man had a rifle. His own. It was either a family heirloom or a tool used to ensure survival. No one dared take a mans livelihood. Whats the difference today? Well, most people dont own cannons. Civies dont own tanks, helicopters, stealth fighters, or cruise missiles. So what are we left with? Rifles, pistols, in rare cases grenade launchers (which launch ...
Black Matriarch Demonstrates The Moral Myopia of Black Females [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2017-08-19 20:08:36 by Tooconservative
Background: 28-year-old Michael Renard Grace Jr. and two accomplices entered a Pizza Hut in Charlotte, NC, with the purpose of robbing the establishment. Grace was armed. An employee in the restaurant saw Grace and his accomplices robbing the store and fired on Grace, killing him. The accomplices fled the scene. Just another day in the life, right? Oh no. The black matriarch who raised Michael Renard Grace Jr. to rob fast food restaurants has to get her two cents in. This is a special treat for me, getting to intersect the Black Matriarchy with the corrective nature of the 2nd Amendment. Im positively giddy. What is the policy of employees having guns on the premises? ...
NYC to Gun-Owning Tourists: Drop Dead
Post Date: 2017-08-09 09:29:42 by Deckard
Have a gun license? Plan to bring your gun to my hometown? Don't. Mean New York authorities will make your life miserable. Patricia Jordan and her daughter flew here from her home state of Georgia. She wanted her gun nearby for protection. Jordan obeyed all the Transportation Security Administration's rules: She put her gun in a locked TSA-approved case with its bullets separate. She informed the airline that she had a gun. The airline had no problem with that. In New York City, she kept the gun locked in her hotel room. She never needed it, but her daughter told me, "I was glad she brought it just in case something did happen." When leaving the city, Jordan followed ...
What A Backyard Submachine Gun Can Teach Us About Gun Laws
Post Date: 2017-08-08 21:35:42 by Tooconservative
Gun rights advocates have said for years that you will never remove firearms from the streets. This is a fact perfectly illustrated by the Paris terrorist attacks in both 2015 and earlier this year. In both assaults, terrorists were able to get their hands on fully automatic weapons and unleash havoc on unsuspecting people. But what if the gun control advocates had a way to make sure they could get every single gun in this country not in police or military hands? What if they could guarantee that they could take every gun off our streets? For most Second Amendment advocates, it wouldnt matter, but lets play with this idea for a bit to make a broader point. In 1998, a British ...
Anybody Can Fire This 'Locked' (Dumb) Smart Gun With $15 Worth of Magnets
Post Date: 2017-07-30 19:22:05 by hondo68
For gun control advocates, a "smart" gun that only its owner can fire has promised an elusive ideal: If your phone or PC can remain locked until you prove your identity, why not your lethal weapon? Now, for the first time, a skilled hacker has taken a deep look into the security mechanisms of one leading example of those authenticated firearms. He's found that if smart guns are going to become a reality, they'll need to be smarter than this one.At the Defcon hacker conference later this week, a hacker who goes by the pseudonym Plore plans to show off a series of critical vulnerabilities he found in the Armatix IP1, a smart gun whose German manufacturer Armatix has claimed ...
Anthony Scaramucci Expected to Be Named White House Communications Director
Post Date: 2017-07-22 01:14:31 by hondo68
The Trump administration is expected to name former Trump transition team official Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director, four sources in and close to the White House told NBC News Thursday. The news of the expected appointment was first reported by Axios. A White House official said the move is expected to be announced Friday. Scaramucci did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A different White House official described Scaramucci to NBC News as a "total professional" with the respect of President Donald Trump. Scaramucci was a supporter of Trump's during the campaign, dealing with fundraising and appearing on cable TV as a frequent ...
Machine Guns, Swords, And Tanks: This Colorado Man Definitely Has More Guns Than You
Post Date: 2017-06-28 12:57:47 by Deckard
Because of Americas fierce reputation for being a heavily armed nation, it would probably surprise most foreigners to learn that the majority of Americans dont own any firearms. And of the people who are gun owners, most only own a couple of firearms. What makes America such a heavily armed nation are the private collections belonging to super-owners (who gun control advocates love to complain about). This demographic, which amounts to 3% of the population, owns half of the firearms in the United States. Each person in this group owns an average of 17 guns. That may sound impressive, but theres another level of gun ownership that blows those numbers out ...
Clarence Thomas: ‘Improbable’ that 2nd Amendment Only Protects Carrying a Gun in Your Home
Post Date: 2017-06-27 18:20:53 by cranky
In his dissent to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) June 26 announcement that it would not review Peruta v. California, Justice Clarence Thomas contended he finds it improbable that the Second Amendment only protects a right to carry a gun in ones own home. Peruta has become on the focal point of opposition to Californias good cause requirement for issuance of concealed carry permits. On January 12, 2017, Breitbart News reported that SCOTUS was asked to review Peruta in hopes of securing a ruling in support of the fundamental right to bear arms. Petitioners specifically wanted SCOTUS to rule whether the Second Amendment ...
Justices Thomas and Gorsuch: Supreme Court Should Take More Second Amendment Cases
Post Date: 2017-06-27 15:21:11 by cranky
Gun owners were disappointed Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to take perhaps the highest-profile Second Amendment case in the country right now: Peruta v. California. Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch share those gun owners disappointment, declaring the need for the nations highest court to require adherence to its Second Amendment precedents. The Supreme Court has only decided two cases on the right to keep and bear arms: D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago. Both involved a law-abiding citizen seeking a handgun in his home for personal protection. Peruta took a logical next step, involving an elderly law-abiding citizen who wanted the opportunity to ...

NRA Spokesman Colion Noir: “Castile Should Be Alive.”
Post Date: 2017-06-21 10:30:34 by Deckard
The NRAs top players are still silent and for the most part, excusing themselves from the mess created by the death of Philando Castile. But now one prominent NRA spokesman has come out, and he thinks Castile should be alive. As mentioned by The Daily Sheeple yesterday, the NRA did make an announcement shortly after word broke of another police officer involved shooting. Considering Castile notified the police officer, Jeronimo Yanez, that he was armed, the NRA likely felt it was a gun issue, and its certainly looking like thats the case. Yanez was found not guilty on Friday in what was obvious to most as a murder. In case it was missed yesterday, The Daily ...
Seattle gun tax update: Sales way down, shootings way up
Post Date: 2017-06-17 13:33:42 by Tooconservative
Do you happen to recall this story out of Washington state that we covered here last year? It dealt with a steep tax on firearms and ammunition levied in Seattle, ostensibly intended to fund research into the effects of gun violence. It went into effect in 2016, receiving great applause from gun grabbing groups around the nation. But after nearly a year of being in place, the city was refusing to release any figures on how much money the tax had brought in nor what impact, if any, it was having on gun violence. More time has passed and the citys elected officials still arent in the mood to discuss it, but as Fox News reports this week, some of the results are impossible to ...
VIDEO: Suspect Draws Gun, Gets Shot Multiple Times in Store Where Everyone Was Armed

A robbery suspect in Brazil entered a convenience store and drew his gun, only to be shot multiple times in a situation in which everyone was armed. Concealed Nation reports that the patrons were all off-duty police who were in the store shopping. Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) from LiveLeak shows four individuals in plain clothes standing in line to check out when a door opens and the would-be robber enters the business with his gun drawn. The robber is shot immediately by one of the off-duty officers who is off-camera at first, then comes into the picture when the robber goes down. The other men all draw their guns as well, some pointing at the robber and others walking toward the door ...

Trump Administration Seeks To Deny Gun Rights To Non-Violent “Criminals”
Post Date: 2017-05-29 06:15:06 by Deckard
Donald Trump was endorsed by the NRA (National Rifle Association) and he assured his voters hed protect their second amendment right to keep and bear arms. Considering his new desire to keep non-violent criminals from owning guns, this flip-flop on values needs to be known. Scouring through conservative alternative media left much to be desired on this, while the left-leaning outlets are having a heyday. The truth is more important than partisan politics, so it bears mentioning that this wont sit nicely in the belly of those on the political right. But Sessions vs. Binderup is a big deal to anyone who seeks freedom from the continued oppression of ...
Mom Puts Gun in Alleged Intruder’s Face and Asks, Is There ‘Something I Could Do For You?’

On Monday, a mother in Beech Bluff, Tennessee, confronted an alleged intruder by sticking the barrel of her gun in his face and asking, [Is] there something I could do for [you]? The incident occurred during the morning hours. According to WBBJ, the mother Elsie Lee and her son were sleeping when she heard strange noises. Lee immediately knew something was not right and that she had to act to protect her son. She went out into the hall, ran to where she keeps her .45 caliber pistol, then grabbed it and a shotgun too. Lee then noticed that someone was already in her home. She said, The guy was standing in the kitchen. He had just busted my door open. ...

The founder and editor of the popular pro-gun website Bearing Arms was found dead in his vehicle in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, Monday morning. Robert Bob Eugene Owens, 46, was found just before 11 a.m. with a gun close to his body. According to reports from local media, Owens car was found at an intersection, parked close to a stop sign. While authorities have not released an official cause of death, reports indicate the cause appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Mere minutes before police were called to the scene, Owens took to Facebook in an eery post that those close to him described as an out of character comment. In the end, it turns ...

Saw this on another board, thought I would share. First they came for the negros- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a negro Then they came for the jihadists- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a jihadist Then they came for the zionists- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a zionist Then they came for the communists- but I didnt speak out because I wasnt a communist Then they stopped coming as they realized that nearly all the problems and troublemakers were gone And they really stopped coming because they realized everyone left had AR-15's, M1A's, FAL's, etc, all with a pile of loaded mags, and bayonets fixed.
