49ers fans beat up Vikings fan in horrifying parking lot brawl video

"They say Philadelphia sports fans are the worst of the bunch, but there’s something to be said for West Coast fans, as evidenced by this horrible brawl filmed by Brandon Cosio. The video depicts what essentially looks like an attempted murder by a bunch of Niners fans outside of Levi’s Stadium after Monday night’s game."

"To make matters worse, there appears to be a child joining in the carnage ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: The NFL bans guns at their games, and the antis will point to this incident as evidence supporting ban. But as the video clearly shows, people bent on mayhem don't need guns to commit their violence; it is their victims who need the most effective self-defense tool in existence.

Floridians who have concealed weapons permits would be allowed to openly carry firearms and Tasers under a bill filed in the Florida Legislature this week.

The bill would also allow lawsuits to be filed against city and county officials if they interfere with a Floridian's right to openly carry a firearm. It is just one of several gun rights bills that will be considered in the legislative session that begins in January 2016.

It's long been conventional wisdom that fighting for gun control is a good way to end a politician's career.
But advocates of tighter gun laws are pointing to a pair of victories in the Pacific Northwest as evidence that the tide is shifting.

It’s 2 a.m. and you awaken to the sound of shattering glass. You are about to be the victim of a home invasion/rape/robbery. Do you do the politically correct thing and dial 911 — then simply hope that the police arrive in the next 90 seconds, before the invader(s) gets to you and your family? On the other hand, do you dial 911 (if you have time) or have a family member do so, and pick up your pistol or shotgun and let the thugs learn a Constitutionalism 101 lesson on the Second Amendment?

After hearing a friend’s story of a home intrusion he thwarted only 2 miles from my home last week, I happened to run in to a town officer at Kwik Trip. I asked him, “Hey, what do you think the furthest distance you are ever from any given residence if we had to call 9-1-1? Like what’s the longest response time you think you’d have in this area?” In small towns like mine, spread over a large rural area, we only have the means to have two on-duty officers and they’re most often ‘on loan’ from their various precincts and counties in the area.

According to the PanAm Post, “Public Safety Minister Rodolfo Aguilera said the country will follow in the footsteps of the United States and Switzerland, where the right to bear arms is believed to lead to fewer homicides.”

“Everything seems to indicate that there is no direct correlation in the aphorism that says more guns mean more crime,” said Mr. Aguilera, who cited the 20-year decline in the homicide rate in the U.S. as gun laws have simultaneously been relaxed.

Rand Paul Supports Gun Violence Against the U.S. Tax Code

To get himself psyched up for tonight’s Republican presidential candidate debate, Rand Paul exercised his right to bear arms and literally shot holes in the U.S. tax code. Apparently he’s unaware that they have another copy. Either that or he was expecting a bigger refund.

Back in June, he wrote an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal titled “Blow Up the Tax Code and Start Over.” All he needs to do now is release a YouTube video of one of his interns beheading the tax code, and he’ll be the ISIS of tax protesters.

Monday’s release by Democrat presidential hopeful Martin O’Malley of his gun control agenda reads like a gun prohibitionist’s wish list, and if enacted, would reduce the Second Amendment to nothing more than a heavily-regulated government privilege, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said in response.

The Connecticut Elections Enforcement Commission on Tuesday said it would look into claims made against the National Rifle Association that the gun lobby group violated state campaign finance rules.

Filed last month by gun control advocates, including researchers at Brown University and individuals with connections to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, the complaint alleges the NRA funneled thousands of dollars from national to state political action committees between 2003 and 2006 in support of Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy’s Republican rival, Thomas Foley.

"Weapon registration zones" will be created. Gun owners in these zones will report to the police station, be photographed and register their firearms. Additionally, everyone in these zones will be subject to "stop and frisk" laws and have their weapons "temporarily" impounded.

Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong and Adolf Hitler would have been happy to have citizens with your degree of acquiescence, Mr. Austin. Abandonment of our sacred, hard-fought personal liberties in the name of "public safety" is never the answer in a free America.
 

PA: Proposed Ordinance in West Manheim Township Aimed to Attack Your Rights

The Board of Supervisors of West Manheim Township in York County, PA will be meeting tonight, September 15th at 7:00 p.m., to discuss a proposed ordinance prohibiting gun owners and property owners from shooting on their land.

The proposed measure creates regulations which would ultimately prevent and discourage recreational shooting for private property owners in the township. For example, the proposal would prevent anyone from shooting within 150 yards of any occupied house or “dwelling,” even if the activity occurs on the shooter’s own property. The measure would also include air pistols, paintball guns, B-B guns and .22 rifles, even with appropriate backstops.

John Boehner must go.

Will your congressman do the right thing?

Congressman Mark Meadows of North Carolina is putting his political career on the line, sponsoring a resolution to “vacate the chair” that would fire Boehner as Speaker.

It’s imperative that you contact your member of Congress right now and tell him or her to vote YES on the Meadows measure (House Resolution 385).
 

Poll: Most Americans Don't Think It's Too Easy to Buy Guns

Right now, 49 percent of Americans feel that existing laws make it “about right” for law-abiding citizens to purchase firearms; 10 percent think it’s too difficult; and 41 percent say it’s too easy. Concerning expanding background checks, on average, 75 percent said it was either extremely, very or somewhat likely that it would prevent the mentally ill from obtaining firearms; a debate that should happen given the propensity for mass shooters to have serious mental health issues.
 

AR: "Open Carry" retaliation? Bald Knob Police Chief's truck vandalized

Bald Knob Police Chief Erek Balentine went outside of his home Monday night to find his personal truck fully engulfed in flames. It was immediately determined to be a case of arson.

“I opened the front door and the whole back glass fully engulfed and then written on the side of it second amendment,” Chief Erek Balentine said.

“Second amendment” was written on both sides of the truck. The right to bear arms--at least openly without a permit has been a topic of the town recently when Bald Knob citizen Richard Chambless was arrested and then later convicted for open carrying inside a McDonalds.

In its first committee meeting in advance of the 2016 Legislative Session, a Senate committee pulled the trigger on two bills to alter Florida’s state gun statutes on Wednesday.

First up was SB 130 sponsored by state Sen. Garrett Richter, essentially this year’s version of Democratic state Rep. Darryl Rouson‘s bill from last year to prevent residents of densely populated neighborhoods from discharging their guns at homemade gun ranges.

In April of this year, the Los Angeles Times published an op-ed with the provocative title, “There’s scientific consensus on guns—and the NRA won’t like it.” The gist of the piece was that the author had surveyed academics who write about firearms policy and found that the majority link more guns to higher death rates. (John Lott wrote a short and elegant rebuttal soon afterward.)

Readers unfamiliar with the name of the author—David Hemenway—might have glanced at his byline and felt reassured that he was listed as a professor in the Harvard School of Public Health. But Dr. Hemenway is no unbiased observer guided by empirical results

Ahead of the second GOP primary debate Wednesday night at the Reagan Library, Senator Rand Paul hit the gun range to shoot the 80,000 page long IRS tax code with an AR-15 (a modified model to meet strict California firearms law), a 1911 9mm pistol and a semi-automatic shotgun.

"We don't have like a grenade launcher?" Paul said to reporters at the range, adding that shooting was a good way to relieve some stress before the debate. "I like getting out and shooting, as you can see I'm a novice but at least I hit the target."
