"What’s unclear at this point, particularly if JP Morgan Chase really did disassociate itself from sex industry performers over concerns of what they do, is if the bank will also now shut off the card for ATF Houston Director of Industry Operations Russell Vanderwerf, arrested in a Metairie hotel after deputies discovered “The door had ... a circular hole padded with duct tape."

A former Madisonville police officer convicted of retaliation for planting methamphetamine on his ex-wife was sentenced Monday to five years on probation.

After being found guilty of the third-degree felony by a Brazos County jury Friday, Jeffrey Covington agreed to probation terms that include a 30-day jail stay and his waiving any right to appeal the verdict in exchange for the state dismissing pending charges of delivery of a controlled substance and official oppression.

Submitters note: Sounds like a pretty sweet deal for an only one. Many peons get more jail time for less serious offenses.

A series of lawsuits filed in recent months in federal courts along the U.S. border with Mexico highlight what advocates say are a growing list of complaints against two U.S. agencies that have expanded rapidly amid the clamor to secure the nation’s borders. ...
In addition to complaints that U.S. Border Patrol agents have used deadly force when their lives were not at risk _ agents have killed 21 people since the beginning of 2010, most of them unarmed migrants _ agents from the two federal agencies that monitor the borders stand accused of mistreating American citizens.
Violent confrontations are only part of the picture. U.S. citizens who live along the border complain that U.S. agents have become a virtual interior police force ...

A corrections officer was arrested after being accused of stalking and threatening his ex-fiancé, and Detroit police said he wanted something back.

Police said over the weekend the officer followed his ex-fiancé and chased her down Van Dyke, repeatedly ramming the woman's car.

"Suspect was involved in felonious assault and domestic violence," said Rochon. "Struck her vehicle several times, pushing her into the middle of traffic."

Afterwards, he approached her with a gun and tried to drag her out of the car, all while screaming, "Give me back my ring."

"One of the things I say is we're human too. It's not impossible for us to lose it, but we're held to a higher standard for sure," said Rochon.

It is our job to spread the gun culture. Responsible gun owners can’t leave it to others. We have to spread the message of responsible gun ownership, and if we do nothing, the anti-gun crowd will poison the image of self-defense.

So what do we do? Here are a few ideas.
 

Utah lawmaker moves to disarm BLM, IRS, says ‘They’re not paramilitary units’

Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah, concerned about the armed agents that surrounded Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s property, is mulling a measure to cut funding for any “paramilitary units” that work for the Bureau of Land Management, the Internal Revenue Service and other federal regulatory agencies. ...
His mulled amendment to an appropriations bill comes in context of recent BLM actions against Mr. Bundy: The federal agents armed themselves and surrounded his property, tasered his son, closed down road access to the ranch and even shot a couple of his prize bulls. The reasons? Mr. Bundy hadn’t paid his grazing fees to the federal government, but rather fought the matter in court.
 

PA: [State] Supreme Court: Pennsylvania cops no longer need a warrant to search citizens’ vehicles

Pennsylvania police officers no longer need a warrant to search a citizen’s vehicle, according to a recent state Supreme Court opinion.
The high court’s opinion, released Tuesday, is being called a drastic change in citizens’ rights and police powers.
Previously, citizens could refuse an officer’s request to search a vehicle. In most cases, the officer would then need a warrant — signed by a judge — to conduct the search.
That’s no longer the case, according to the opinion written by Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery.
The ruling, passed on a 4-2 vote, was made in regard to an appeal from a 2010 vehicle stop in Philadelphia.
Local police and legal professionals are calling the opinion “big news.”

"That fits right in with using the term 'gun supremacists' in his latest attack on Georgia's peaceable gun owners, and it's no coincidence this professional wordsmith selected a word broadly associated with racism. The antis have been trying to peg gun owners as haters because it's to their advantage to convince a critical mass of the public to view us as evil."

For the second time this year, the Senate has endorsed nullifying federal gun laws.

The Senate, in a 23-8 vote along party lines, passed House Bill 1439. The bill, handled by Sen. Brian Nieves, R-Washington, in addition to voiding many federal gun laws, would also lower the concealed-carry age from 21 to 19. School protection officers would also be allowed to carry pepper spray for self-defense and anyone with a valid conceal-carry license would also be allowed to open carry firearms.

The 3Ms are at it again. This time they are putting Bloomberg Money to work, desperately trying to condition the public to their distorted view that “guns equal violence“.

They simply cannot fathom the actual fact that guns in the hands of law-abiding individuals discourage crime and violence.

So they are not wasting any time putting that Bloomberg money to use staging events all over New Jersey touting the documentary “Shell Shocked” by John Richie.

A group advocating for Second Amendment rights, GeorgiaCarry.org, filed the suit last summer challenging two of the city’s ordinances, saying the two policies should be declared “void and unenforceable.”

Assemblyman Tim Donnelly’s bill that sought to overhaul California gun laws failed to pass the California Assembly Public Safety Committee this week, Donnelly announced.

Democrats overwhelmingly voted against AB 1563, which would have created a statewide system for issuing concealed-carry handgun permits rather than putting that power in the hands of individual sheriffs and police chiefs.
 

GA: Georgia's Concealed Carry Expansion: A Victory for Individual Rights

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal recently signed into law a bill which expanded the rights of licensed gun owners to carry their firearms into certain public places. The name of the bill was the Safe Carry Protection Act, though critics have charged that it should be better known as the "Guns Everywhere Act." The basic moving parts of the bill are that it creates an opt-in standard for places such as schools and churches by allowing them to permit certain individuals to carry firearms onto their premises, while creating an opt-out standard for shops and restaurants, in which licensed concealed carry permit holders are presumed to be allowed on the premises unless the property owner signals his intention to deny them entry.

Internal Affairs officers are investigating after an off-duty NYPD cop appears to have randomly opened fire at a passing car Tuesday night in Pelham, N.Y., hitting a passenger six times.

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton says alcohol may have been a factor, and one witness says he believes road rage sparked the shooting.

Pelham police say the 27-year-old officer, Brendan Cronin, is believed to have fired his NYPD-issued 9 mm handgun at a passing car near Lincoln Avenue and Sixth Avenue just off the Hutchinson River Parkway at about 11:55 p.m..

There are two factors mitigating in favor of the Supreme Court taking a hard look at Drake: one, the fact that the court is considering the case for the third time on Friday; two, the court looks at only about two percent of the cases presented to it for review. As Root noted, "That Drake keeps kicking around suggests that somebody on the Court has taken a serious interest in hearing the case and is pushing for extra consideration among the nine members before a final vote is held on whether or not to accept it."

Rumors are that Justice Antonin Scalia is the one pushing for the court to hear Drake.

"Their message: Bills that the National Rifle Association are pushing compromise companies’ constitutional property rights, jeopardize employment policies and create the potential for workplace tragedy," the Nashville Business Journal reported.

The father-in-law of Christopher Sparkman, the Cobb County man seriously injured while working as a security guard at the Kennesaw FedEx facility, said the unarmed Sparkman "didn't stand a chance" when shooter Geddy Kramer burst in, barrels blazing. Sparkman, a 28-year-old Army Reserves member who was working the security job to make extra money, remained in critical condition at WellStar Kennestone Hospital early Wednesday.

According to the sub-head of S.E. Cupp’s opinion piece, the ex-New York mayor’s big-money “grassroots” effort will “make more enemies than converts.” That much seemed evident over the weekend as the NRA gathered in Indianapolis, where an estimated 75,000 gun enthusiasts turned out for the organization’s 143rd annual convention, while Bloomberg’s anti-gun campaign could only draw a crowd estimated to be somewhere between 100 and 200 people.

Yesterday’s presentation of the Key Award was by WCOG President Toby Nixon. He told Examiner that the diverse board of directors, consisting of liberals and conservatives, voted unanimously for the SAF award because, politics aside, they all believe in open government. In a press release, SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb said his organization is “extremely proud” to receive the award.

While local officials were worried about the passing of Senate Bill 447, which would make local gun regulations moot, Gov. Sam Brownback signed House Bill 2578 into law last week with the same regulations contained in the Senate measure.

During a segment that aired Tuesday, Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper took a humorous look at these new firms, which include Cuccinelli’s Virginia Self-Defense Firm, the Law Office of Doug Friesen, Gunn Shield and the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network.
