MI: $5,000 reward offered in gun store smash-and-grab
Submitted by: Corey Salo

It took thieves just 31 seconds to smash a gun store's display case and grab 10 high-end Kimber handguns from Southwick's Guns, Ammo, and Gear store last week.

Now a reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction for those responsible.

At 11:47 p.m. Oct. 28 two suspects wearing bandannas and gloves broke the gun store at 1271 M-89.

The theft was not discovered until October 29, when the store was opened, because the suspects entered the store through a smashed out window, one window which did not trigger the alarm.

Since the incident, none of the weapons has been recovered, said Captain Mike Larsen of the Allegan County Sheriff's Office.

Down a Georgia country road, camouflaged members of the Three Percent Security Force have mobilized for rifle practice, hand-to-hand combat training -- and an impromptu campaign rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. ...
As the most divisive presidential election in recent memory nears its conclusion, some armed militia groups are preparing for the possibility of a stolen election on Nov. 8 and civil unrest in the days following a victory by Democrat Hillary Clinton.
They say they won't fire the first shot, but they're not planning to leave their guns at home, either.

On Tuesday, Hoosiers won’t just be electing new political leaders. Voters also will be deciding if the Indiana Constitution shall be amended to include the right to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife.

Question 1 has stirred a lot of debate over whether or not we really need a constitutional right to hunt and fish.

Folks staunchly in favor point out attempts from anti-hunting organizations, such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), to erode traditional hunting and fishing opportunities.

Hillary believes the Supreme Court got it wrong in D.C. v. Heller, in which the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment protected an individual’s right to own a firearm for lawful purposes such as self-defense in the home. Regarding appointments to the Supreme Court, she states, “I want a Supreme Court justice who understands how the world really works.” This of course means how the world works from a Progressive’s perspective. She wants the Supreme Court to stand against the rich and corporate interest, i.e., justices who view the Constitution as a living a breathing document, who take sides in disputes rather than adjudicate them according to the law.

Lax Gun Laws May Pit Bullets Against Ballots

Much has been written about Election 2016's unprecedented aspects, but one menacing storyline that has emerged is the tension between "gun rights" and voting rights. Voting officials reportedly fear a clash between gun-wielding poll-watchers and voters on November 8th, or that some voters could actually stay away from the polls because of that danger. Although the right to vote is sacrosanct, the potential interplay between voting rights and gun rights will test the country's commitment to fostering democracy.

If we had a president who believed in the Second Amendment, here’s what Dom Raso says that president would say to our fellow Americans about the threat of radical Islamic terror.

Unfortunately, we’ll never hear that speech from Obama.

So it’s up to us to arm and train ourselves and take the responsibility of protecting ourselves and our loved ones into our own hands.

Gun control has been a minor theme of this year’s presidential election, as Hillary Clinton promises to close “loopholes” in the background checks for gun purchasers, and Donald Trump pledges “unwavering support” for the Second Amendment.

The real battle over guns, though, has been waged at the state level this year — with a new emphasis on ballot initiatives.

Former Kennesaw Mayor J.O. Stephenson died Tuesday at age 84.

...

When you spend that much time on a dais, you get asked your opinion. And when it came to the Second Amendment, Stephenson wasn't shy.

"He was a strong proponent of the 1982 Gun Law that supported our second amendment rights," read his obituary.

The law in part reads: "Every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm, together with ammunition."

Carlson, 46, and his lawyers say he acted in self-defense when he shot Acosta-Sanchez, 35, of Ramapo outside the home of one of Carlson's neighbors in Sparrowbush. Carlson's defense team is led by lawyers Benjamin Ostrer and Michael Mazzariello.

Acosta-Sanchez was wanted on a second-degree rape warrant and had eluded a police manhunt the day before the Oct. 11, 2013 shooting.

Prosecutors from the Westchester County District Attorney's Office say Carlson is a vigilante who took matters into his own hands, and got in over his head.

The Constitution provides checks and balances on the power of the state. The willingness to abolish the most fundamental of those rights by political candidates and parties to enhance their control of the people should alarm every American. I speak of your right to express unfettered political and religious speech, to freely exercise your religious beliefs and the right to own effective means of self-defense by ownership and use of firearms without onerous restrictions or prohibitions.

It was a long wait for gun owners in Pender County who have been without a space to practice their craft for months now.

"Folks were doing most of their shooting out in the game lands which was allowed at the time, it just caused so much damage that we had to put an end to that," said Gary Gardner with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission.

Donald Trump’s claims of “large-scale” voter fraud have prompted officials across the political spectrum to warn about the dangers of vigilante poll monitors amid fears of confrontations or even violence on US election day.

As opinion polls tightened this week between Trump and Hillary Clinton ahead of Tuesday’s presidential vote, there are concerns of chaos following his claims, without serious evidence, that the election could be “rigged” and his refusal to say if he will accept the outcome.

CCW Weekend: What Constitutes “Good Cause” In May-Issue States

May-issue states are known for making it difficult, if not impossible, for people to get a license to carry a gun, denying constitutional rights of their citizens and preventing millions of people from the means of defending themselves. Many of these states are also hotbeds of criminal activity, meaning the authorities only want police to deal with a problem that police clearly can’t entirely solve.

To get a permit in restrictive states, a person usually has to show good cause to be issued a permit. Local law enforcement, state-level law enforcement, whomever, reviews and decides whether it’s compelling enough.

They were the designs of some of Gaston’s earliest gunsmiths.

A collection of 15 centuries-old, locally-crafted longrifles will go on display Saturday at the Charlotte Museum of History in Charlotte. The rifles were all crafted by gunsmiths from what’s known as the Mecklenburg School, one of the most sought-after styles of the rifle made in North Carolina.

Three of them are believed to have possibly been crafted by gunsmiths who lived in Gaston County during the turn of the 19th century.

Four decades ago, gun clubs in schools were common. Then came the all out assault on the Second Amendment. Educators and the NEA were (and are) firmly in the hands of “progressives”. Gun clubs in schools had to go. There are only a few gun clubs in today’s schools. “Progressives” want to be sure to indoctrinate the youth that guns are bad and should be strictly left to the police. The message has not resonated, and is being fought.

Two Delaware residents face misdemeanor charges after taking part in a friendly battle with pellet guns near a city business late last month.

Officers responded to a report of a man firing a gun shortly before 2:30 p.m. Oct. 27 in a parking lot in the 1700 block of Columbus Pike.

Capt. Adam Moore said officers located two suspects matching descriptions given by a witness following the incident at a neighboring business. He said the two men were buying ammunition for pellet guns and admitted to officers they had been shooting at each other outside.

Both men were cited for discharging a firearm within city limits, a fourth-degree misdemeanor.

Time after time, the mainstream media has tried to write off Donald Trump and his supporters.

And the same media that openly back Hillary Clinton want you to believe it’s not a question of whether she will win, but by how much.

But the media and the Clinton campaign (to the extent they can even be separated at this point) don’t get to write the final chapter to this story.

You do.

For the second time in just over a year, one East Providence police chief is in hot water for infringing on citizens’ Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

The Rhode Island Supreme Court has issued an order faulting Chief Christopher J. Parella for improperly denying residents licenses to carry concealed weapons and failing to abide by the court’s previous ruling.
