"It's one thing to intellectualize that the system of liberty-based government created by the victors made the continuation of the age-old obscenity of human bondage untenable and doomed to being eradicated in under a century, and another to note that would have been small comfort to the man, woman or child brutally treated as chattel."

"While Gov. Brown may very well have been swayed by tens of thousands of letters (although he handily beat anti-gun Republican Meg Whitman in the 2010 election with over a million votes), and while his explanation that 'I don't believe that this bill's blanket ban on semi-automatic rifles would reduce criminal activity or enhance public safety enough to warrant this infringement on gun owners' rights' may be sincere, that doesn’t mean he won’t be receptive to future, less ambitious erosion. And there’s another significant factor that we addressed at the start of this report, one that may have had a significant impact of its own: The Zondorak case. "

A family in Kensington had a break-in at their home and Philadelphia narcotics officers are suspected in the crime.

Sources say Wednesday night around 8:00 p.m., five members of the 24th District Narcotics Enforcement Team, known as NETS allegedly broke into a family's home in the 2900 block of Hurley Street.

They allegedly broke in through a window when nobody was home under the auspices that it was a drug house.

However sources say, they had no warrant, found no drugs and ended up taking a Police Explorers Uniform to memorialize the event.

All five officers were asked to turn in their guns and have been placed on desk duty pending further review by the police commissioner.
 

The Right to Keep and Bear Arms [With Less Than 10 Rounds] Shall Not Be Infringed

The momentum in the gun debate has clearly shifted toward gun rights proponents as the NRA continues to stand on the clear language of the Second Amendment.
Whereas 2012 ended with Democrats working their constituents up into an emotional fervor to ban entire classes of guns, expand background checks, and ban “extended magazines,” now nothing sounds sillier than the suggestion “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms [holding less than 10 rounds], shall not be infringed.”

If you were driving south on Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington on Thursday around 7 p.m., your headlights might have caught a glimpse of a group of people walking along the sidewalk carrying what looked like rifles and shotguns over their shoulders. No, the fading dusk wasn't messing with your vision. Yes, those were really long guns slung across their backs.
 

Six Anti-Gun Fails

Credit goes in part to the many pro-gun rights organizations, conservative legislators, and a myriad of everyday citizens for what many consider an unprecedented forward movement in protecting, affirming and expanding gun rights. In some sense, however, credit also goes to the anti-gun rights crowd for not only failing to make any headway for their misguided cause but also for reversing any semblance of "progress" for its anti-gun rights agenda.

Although the failures of the anti­-gun rights movement are many,six will suffice to make the point.
 

Obamacare Could Pit Provisions to Safeguard Gun Owners' Rights Against 'Executive Order 16'

"What constitutes a 'threat of violence' could be very arbitrary," writes Alexander, of Phoenix, Ariz., co-editor of The Intellectual Conservative. "This puts doctors in a difficult position by suggesting they act as pseudo-law enforcement agents."

Alexander says under Obamacare, if a doctor or other healthcare provider has a patient diagnosed with PTSD or mental illness "and they fail to ask the patient about their firearms, or report them to law enforcement, they could be on the hook later. It encourages them to err on the side of snooping into their patients' guns. This is especially troubling considered the definition of mental illness keeps expanding."

Two state legislators are calling on popular social media sites to change their user policies which she says allows for the unregulated sale of firearms without background checks.

Assemblymembers Michelle Schimel, D-Great Neck, and Brian Kavanagh, D-Manhattan, recently launched an online petition campaign asking social media companies Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to change their policies regarding guns — but some sites already have detailed rules in place.

There are few acts of government that contribute more to the rapid subjugation of its citizens than disarmament. Fortunately, resistance to the United Nations’ plan to do just that is growing.

Earlier this week, The New American reported on a letter to President Obama penned by a bipartisan coalition of 50 senators informing the president that the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty was dead on arrival in the Senate.

On Thursday, one of the signatories of that letter, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), shown, said that the international gun grab “violates the Second Amendment rights of Tennesseans and all Americans.”

Fields and Wiggs are running against each other for mayor. The election is Nov. 5.

"Our Second Amendment rights are under attack in Lakeland and we need you to take action," the advertisement said. "Mayor Gow Fields has joined forces with Mayor Michael Bloomberg and President Barack Obama in support of dangerous legislation that punishes law-abiding gun owners."

The ad has a picture of Fields between Obama and Bloomberg.

The ad references Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a prominent voice in support of gun control organized by Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

The St. Helens School District School Board Wednesday night lifted a ban on teachers and staff carrying firearms on school grounds.
In March, the board had banned employees, contractors and volunteers from bringing weapons the property.
The old policy stated, "This prohibition includes those who may otherwise be permitted by law to carry such weapons.”
In the same month, the St. Helens softball team raffled off an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.
With the ban now lifted, teachers and staff with concealed-carry permits can carry guns anywhere at school, as allowed by state law.

Unbelievable as it seems, the initial Iowa CPL process recognizes a 45-minute online video, a simple 20 question test and no requirement to handle, fire or even see a handgun as adequate training. Could it possibly get any worse? Well, unfortunately, yes it can. Three counties in Iowa have issued CPL permits to the legally blind since the law changed in 2011. That’s right; Iowa has determined that blind CPL applicants have a right to self defense and should be allowed to legally carry a concealed pistol.

He pointed out two court decisions – our own government – that explains the police have no obligation to protect you, or anybody for that matter.

Here are the “opinions of the District of Columbia Superior Court and the D.C. Court of Appeals issued in 1978 and 1981 blocking a suit by three young women who had been raped and beaten for 14 hours during a nightmarish home invasion in 1975 (the Warren Case).

“… a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular individual citizen.”

“Interpol’s chief recently drilled a hole in the anti-gun program,” gun rights expert John M. Snyder said here today.
“That came when Secretary General Ronald Noble suggested that open societies could be protected from terrorists by citizens defending themselves with guns.”
“For many years,” Snyder noted, “the anti-gun establishment has been putting forth the idea that gun control is necessary for public safety. On October 21, in Cartegena, Columbia, though, Noble indicated that in an open society an armed citizenry can protect people from terrorist attacks.

In the last article I discussed practicing a smooth and efficient draw. This article discusses building the next skill set on the strong foundation of your draw.

At the beginning of the last article I discussed that a large number of “stops” in self-defense situations are psychological stops. A portion of the psychological aspect of a stop is doing things that will make you a less enticing target.

A professor at the University of Maryland (UMD) suggested in email to his students last month that the Trayvon Martin ruling in Florida means it is now perfectly legal in the United States to hunt-down and kill American children.

“This year, we learned that it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida,” wrote UMD Professor and Honors College Executive Director William Dorland, in an email to students on the honors college sent on September 4, according to Fox News.

It’s been tested, he said, “unlike the Obamacare website.” One test, he said, was Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s filibuster earlier this year against drone policy. A second, he said, was after the December school shootings in Connecticut, when Obama “chose to target the Second Amendment rights of law abiding citizens.”

“When it came time for a vote every single proposal of the president’s that would have undermined the Second Amendment,” those votes fell short, Cruz said, again demonstrating the power of the grassroots. Same with immigration, he said—a Senate plan to create a path to citizenship has been halted so far in the House of Representatives.

The philosophical difference between the collective good and individual rights was central to a panel discussion on Gun Violence and the Second Amendment sponsored by Gwynedd Mercy University Oct. 24.

There was general agreement on an individual’s right to own a gun and that there is a need to stem gun violence, but the type of guns available for purchase, the size of gun magazines and expanding background checks were, not surprisingly, what separated the panelists.

In pretty much all self-defense situations, distance is your friend. Putting distance between you and an attacker increases your chances of getting away unscathed, without having to use force to defend yourself.

If, however, you do have to draw and fire, you don’t want to stand like you’re on the firing line of the local range. Instead, you should move away from the danger to potential cover. As such, you need know how to fire on the move, possibly at a moving target.
