Time to Take the Tasers Away
Submitted by: Larry

During a forced entry raid in California in February 2008, police Tasered a man for “cursing” and “threatening” the officers with a flyswatter. The aggressive entry was unnecessary, since the suspect being sought was already in police custody. Yet the man who was treated to electro-shock torture was charged with “obstruction” nonetheless.

Apparently, a flyswatter can be considered a potentially lethal weapon when it is raised in defiance of one of the state’s armed enforcers.

Fast-forward almost exactly a year, and relocate the action to a Waffle House in Loganville, Georgia. For reasons yet to be explained, Gwinnett County Police Officer Gary Miles, Jr. pulls his Taser and treats employee Dan Wilson, a young man whom Miles had taunted and intimidated in the past, to a “drive stun.”
 

Question Authority: Always and Forever Hereafter

Turn off the television, grab a book(s) and have conversations with family and like-minded friends. Go out and do things. Start a garden, fix your fencing, move to the country and reach out to the community you live in. Open your mind to the possibilities before us. Most of all, question every aspect of your relationship with authority. Does it derive from fear or respect? Does it emanate from first-hand experience or second-hand knowledge? How many times have you truly asked why a certain bureaucratic edict must be followed? More importantly, what is your line in the sand where your servitude stops and your resistance begins? Just say no to big government. Once a man establishes his limitations for tolerance of interference in his life and adopts a resolute stand against the forces buffeting him against his will, the world will change.

The next generation of gun rights activists

Now, more than ever, children are bombarded at school with anti-gun messages in an attempt to mold young minds to oppose civilian gun ownership through indoctrination. If this is not countered by a pro-gun message at home, the future of gun rights will be lost.
 

Matthews Mocks GOP Candidate for Upholding 2nd Amendment Principles

Next up, a reminder to think before you hit the "send" button. You've all seen what's happening in the streets of Tehran. How people are getting beaten, getting hit with tear gas, getting shot. Take a look at what Republican Senate candidate Marco Rubio of Florida posted on his Twitter page after watching those scenes that we've been watching. Quote: "I have a feeling the situation in Iran would be a little different if they had a 2nd Amendment like ours." Wow! Things would be different if the protestors had the Constitutional right to bear arms?! To fight back against the Iranian Guard? I hadn't thought of that.

Steve Bierfeldt says the Transportation Security Administration pulled him aside for extra questioning in March. He was carrying a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution and an iPhone capable of making audio recordings. And he used them.

On a recording a TSA agent can be heard berating Bierfeldt. One sample: "You want to play smartass, and I'm not going to play your f**king game."

There are no restrictions on carrying large sums of cash on flights within the United States, but the TSA allegedly took Bierfeldt to a windowless room and, along with other law enforcement agencies, questioned him for almost half an hour about the money.

 

Grenade Goof: CNN's Cooper Says Grenades Bought In United States

In this report, Cooper repeated the tired, discredited, blatantly incorrect idea that 90% of Mexican drug cartels’ arms supply comes from the United States. In addition, Cooper showed some interesting B-roll footage of seized weapon, some of which clearly cannot be bought on the civilian market.

Initially, one might note the M16A1, M16A2, M4, and what appears to be a standard NATO-issue M60.

...That being said, there also appears to be a 40mm M203 grenade launcher attachment on one of the weapons. That, dear reader, is unavailable on the U.S. market – even in Texas.

My thanks to Jim "Hoot" Gibson, USAF, Retired of Wilson County, Texas for bringing this to my attention. Further research on the topic found this snippet:

"ATK subsidiary Federal Cartridge Co. in Anoka, MN received a $49.9 million firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity contract for .300 Winchester magnum ammunition."

Folks here in Alabama have been loading .300 Winchester Magnums with pulled .30-06 AP bullets for some time now and find they work quite spectacularly at distance. (Our first experiments were back in 1995, if memory serves me correctly. And what they do to body armor you don't even want to see.) Nice to know the Army finally caught up with the constitutional militia.

U.S. Guns Blamed for Jamaican Crime

"Attempts to blame the U.S. for Jamaican crime are not new. Noises were being made about this years ago. And not just for U.S. guns being responsible for 'gun deaths' in Jamaica, but also for U.S. guns being responsible for 'gun deaths' in Canada."

"Then again, we see the same tactic exploited domestically, with invented terms like 'the Iron Pipeline' being used to decry states with 'lax gun laws.' Mind you, this presumes you need to agree with The New York Times on the meaning of 'lax.'"

Which leads me to point out part of FBI SOP when dealing with a criminal conspiracy. They like to follow the people (and especially, the money) from a criminal enterprise to see how many people they can net before they make the "big bust.". For in casting their nets as wide as possible, they find more confidential informants to turn for use in later operations. It is not beyond possibility that one or more of this bunch, working at the direction of the Fibbies, channeled Forde in the direction of Glenn Spencer. It is also not beyond possibility that Forde herself was a federal snitch playing both sides against the middle.

This is what the 90s taught me -- If you lie down with dogs, you get up with federal fleas.

Gandhi even wrote a pamphlet in 1942 about how the Indians should greet the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere called HOW TO MEET A JAPANESE INVASION by Mirabehn (his female English secretary) and MK Gandhi, 1942. It laid out the ways Indians could "in good conscience" collaborate with the Imperial Japanese Army.

Had the Japanese got as far as India. Gandhi's theories of "passive resistance" would have floated down the Ganges River with his bayoneted carcass.

Rep. Brad Sherman, California Democrat and chairman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee that deals with export controls, said that it may be time to treat the infrared patches as a munition that would need to be controlled through the Arms Export Control Act.

"If there is an item that has only a military use, like the patches, the fact that they are nonlethal doesn't mean we should not treat them as munitions," he said. "The term 'munitions' perhaps should apply to anything that does not have a legitimate civilian use."

However, a retired four-star general, Jack Keane, said the risk had been overstated.

"Since the beginning of warfare, people have been dressing up as the enemy to infiltrate," he said. "We certainly have done this in the past to our enemies, and our enemies have done this to us."

After 40 years in business, Mary Vann is used to demand for the guns and ammunition at her shop changing with the times. When the economy sours, people ponder their personal safety and sales tend to increase. Couple those financial worries with the possibility of tougher federal gun laws and sales action spikes even further. "They (customers) are very much afraid of what politicians are going to do with laws and restrictions," said Vann, who owns the Plattsburgh shop with her husband.

BROWNSBURG, Indiana - An Indiana man arrested Monday night was accused of stabbing his estranged wife to death while his two daughters, 12 and 8, hid in a closet. Authorities said the older girl called police and told a dispatcher, "Daddy killed Mommy."

The wife was found stabbed in her bed at home on Sunday night. Investigators say the couple was going through a divorce and she had a protective order requiring him to stay away from her and their daughters.

OH: Is a gang war brewing in Lorain?

The last two days have seen five people shot in what is being called a "high-crime area" in the west side of Lorain in the neighborhoods of 13th Street and 18th Street crossed by Long Ave. and Oakdale Street.

This area of town has gotten progressively worse over the last few years and allegations of gang conflicts over territories and drug sales seem to be leading up to a full scale turf war as criminals vie for control over the area.
