Canada: Audacious Heist and Robbery of a Canadian Gun Shop

On Sunday March 2, 2014 at 2:20 am, there was an audacious smash-and-grab heist of a gun store in Hamilton, Ontario — the crooks used a stolen car to ram through the front doors of the closed and locked shop and then three masked and hooded men quickly plundered firearms and fled on foot.

The entire scene, like something out of a Grand Theft Auto video game, was captured on the store’s video surveillance cameras. On Sept. 17, Hamilton Police Service released the video to aid in their investigation. This is that video.

The gun shop that was hit is a venerable firearms dealer in Hamilton, Al Simmons Gun Store, at 122 Locke Street South. The three bandits made off with several long guns but the weapons were found soon after by police.

Ladies across Kitsap are gathering in homes to discuss some hard truths, have a laugh, and look at some rather shocking merchandise.

That’s not all. Some products sting, even jab.

On its surface, Damsel in Defense is a lot like other home-based businesses, where consultants gather gals in living rooms to sell products while having a little fun. But instead of intimate products, or makeup common at similar parties, Damsel’s line is quite different.

A man with a past conviction for a nonviolent misdemeanor was improperly kept from buying guns for self-defense, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

U.S. District Judge James Gardner granted partial summary judgment to Daniel Binderup, whose 1998 consensual sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl when he was 41 left him with a conviction in Pennsylvania for corruption of minors. Binderup said he served three years of probation, paid a $1,425 fine, reconciled with his wife and has not been convicted of violating any laws since.
 

Why did the USDA buy submachine guns?

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s internal audit arm has 85 shiny new submachine guns, locked and loaded.

They’ve long had a small police force, and they’re not alone, thanks to a mostly forgotten provision in the behemoth 2002 Homeland Security Act that allows federal auditing agencies to equip themselves with agents who carry guns.

Criminal investigators at agencies like the USDA, the Small Business Administration and NASA can carry firearms.

The USDA first gained the permanent ability to arm its criminal investigators in 1981. Twenty-five other federal agencies gained that permanent ability in 2002 as result of the Security Act.

Fear of the federal government’s interference with Second Amendment rights and suspicion that elected officials are ignoring the “will of the people” have provoked a resurgence of self-described patriots across the country who say they are preparing to defend themselves and their rights.

Organizations tracking the movement say the number of groups has risen dramatically in the past six years.

“There’s a very unreasonable, ridiculously crazy attack on the Second Amendment and people that own guns,” said Cope Reynolds, a member of the White Mountain Militia in Show Low, Ariz.

A Connecticut town is behind the eight ball after a lawful concealed carry permit holder, a noted attorney, was arrested by an officer who was not himself certified.

The permit holder, Sung-Ho Hwang, an immigration attorney and president of the New Haven County Bar Association, was arrested Aug. 7, 2012, by police after they responded to a call of a man with a gun at an area movie theater. Charged initially with second-degree breach of peace and interfering with police, charges were later dropped that December.

“It is deeply disturbing that the Government of Mexico, of all the nations in the U.N., has been selected to take the lead,” the senators said in a letter. “Our concern is increased by the fact that the Mexican Government is working closely, and behind closed doors, with advocacy organizations that share its desire to expand the treaty’s scope…If the Arms Trade Treaty were amended as Mexico desires, our worst fears about the Treaty’s impact on our Second Amendment rights would be realized.”

"An Islamist's beheading of an Oklahoma woman Thursday and his being stopped by a man with a gun shows that Americans need personal firearms to defend life from Islamist terrorists," gun rights expert John M. Snyder said here today.

According to news reports, the suspect beheaded Colleen Hufford at a Moore, Oklahoma company, Vaughan Foods. The suspect then attacked another company employee but the company owner, Mark Vaughan, stopped the suspect by shooting and wounding him.

A legal victory for Second Amendment advocates will lead to a significant change in Hawaii’s firearms law.

U.S. District Judge Michael Seabright has ruled Hawaii’s police chiefs must consider Steve Fotoudis’ application for a firearms permit.

The Honolulu Police Department denied Fotoudis, a permanent legal alien in Hawaii and competitive shooter from Australia, the permit because of his status as an alien resident.

But Seabright ruled unconstitutional Hawaii’s law prohibiting alien residents from applying for firearms permits.

The Second Amendment Foundation has quietly won a significant federal court victory in a Pennsylvania case in which the judge has ruled that a man convicted of a serious misdemeanor crime several years ago, but who has demonstrated that he "would present no more threat to the community" than an average law-abiding citizen, may not lose his Second Amendment rights under a federal gun control statute known as 922(g)(1).

The ruling, by Judge James Knoll Gardner for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, says that application of that statute to the plaintiff, Daniel Binderup, "violates the Second Amendment."

Texas has long supported its residents' and visitors' rights to bear arms, and the state's gun laws prove it.

The state has had a concealed handgun license program for 18 years and currently has more than 750,000 residents with active CHLs. Texas residents with permits can legally carry their firearms in 35 other states, and even more Americans are legally allowed to carry their guns in Texas.

“I have concerns about online gun sales as well,” said Alan Gottlieb of the Second Amendment Foundation in Bellevue. He also read the report by Everytown For Gun Safety, but he had a different takeaway.

Gottlieb said it shows the vast majority of online gun shoppers are not criminals.

“Now if we want to talk about to figure out how to stop those small numbers, I’ll sit down and talk with you,” he said. “But when you want to stop and infringe on everybody else’s rights, that’s the problem.”

Philadelphia City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson has introduced legislation to ban toy guns. His bill, which he introduced at City Council on Thursday, comes after a man holding a toy gun was killed in an Ohio Walmart and a recent rally in Point Breeze that convinced a corner store to stop selling BB guns.

Johnson’s ban on toy guns would exempt ones that are “white, bright colored or entirely transparent,” according to the Inquirer, and would also allow historical replicas and props. Atlantic City recently passed a toy gun ban with similar exemptions. Johnson is also pushing legislation that would increase the penalty for selling a BB gun, which is already illegal in Philadelphia.

“It was a tough decision,” Hairston told his faculty and staff on Friday in the middle school gymnasium. “I talked to union leadership about a month ago and I told them what we were doing.”

Hairston announced that “quite a few” teachers from the district had completed specialized tactical defense training and were certified for in-school armed response in the event of an active shooter.

There are so many amazing things that 3D printers can make, but some may be surprised to hear that they can actually create weapons.

With a 3D printer for public use in the metro at the Johnson County Library, it has some asking serious questions about the revolutionizing tool.

"Whether you need a key chain that has your kid's nickname on it or a new part of your skull or a new vertebra or a prosthetic hand," said David Dalton, the owner of Hammerspace Hobby and Community Workshop.

However some creative minds are also using the printers to make gun magazines and even entire weapons.

Residents of an Oklahoma City suburb are in shock following a deadly attack at a food processing plant Thursday afternoon in which an employee beheaded one woman and stabbed another before the company’s CEO shot the man in an attempt to stop him.

Multiple media outlets reported that Alton Nolen, 30, was fired from his job at Vaughan Foods, Inc. and in the immediate aftermath he reportedly walked back into the business and attacked Colleen Hufford, 54, with a knife, stabbing her repeatedly and eventually severed her head. Nolen then turned his attention to Traci Johnson, 43, stabbing her multiple times. At that point, the company’s chief operating officer, Mark Vaughan, who is also a reserve sheriff’s deputy, shot Nolen.
