"Don’t look for such critical thinking or ability for introspection among the dinosaurs lumbering about the board room of The Plain Dealer. Any bets that they, and editorial sauropods like Brent Larkin, won’t go extinct long before the demand for freedom does?"

Turn your Glock into a rifle? There is a new product out that will allow you to add any standard AR stock to most models of Glocks. This will redistribution the weight and recoil of your handgun, reduce hand fatigue and may benefit those who have hand problems and can not longer shoot handguns comfortably. Also handy for those who want more stability for those long shots with their favorite Glock.

PHILADELPHIA - September 27, 2013 (WPVI) -- Hours after he was suspended with intent to dismiss on Friday, the Philadelphia DA's Office approved charges against a police officer in connection with a crash that left a man dead.

Sgt. Thomas Winkis faces charges of homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, homicide by vehicle, DUI, involuntary manslaughter and recklessly endangering another person.

Investigators say Winkis was at the wheel of a Dodge Challenger when it T-boned a van at 11:40 p.m. Saturday, September 14th.

Sources say that the black box recovered from Winkis' Challenger shows that he was traveling at 101 m.p.h. at the time of the accident and his blood alcohol level was .17.

Considering that a group of young boys were just suspended from school for an entire year after they were seen playing with toy guns on private property…imagine the outrage that might ensue from those same corners if this underwear ad were to run today.

A 19-year-old Dighton man is suing the town and its police chief for seizing his guns and suspending his firearms identification card, according to a lawsuit filed last week in U.S. federal court in Boston.

Matthew P. Plouffe claims that town’s police department violated his Constitutional right to bear arms. The lawsuit calls for the reinstatement of Plouffe’s FID card and the return of his guns. The lawsuit also requests an order permanently enjoining all the law enforcement officials involved from enforcing the state’s gun license law, and calls for the payment of Plouffe’s attorney fees.
 

NC: Gun control revisited

And now our intrepid Secretary of State offers to hand over our Second Amendment rights to the U.N. as he signs the U.N. Weapon Control Agreement. Fortunately the agreement must be ratified by the Senate before we are fully committed. Hopefully there are enough folks in the Senate who believe in American freedom, the Constitution, and the Second Amendment to keep that from happening. It is bad enough how the Anointed One and his spear carriers have ignored and denigrated the Tenth Amendment. Now they would seem to be willing to do the same to the Second Amendment. What do you suppose is next?? Maybe the Fourth Amendment??

Why I keep a swiss bayonet on my desk

Most armed; most free.” So the renowned Italian thinker and strategist Niccolo Machiavelli described the Swiss five centuries ago.
That was a time when the 30 ft pikes and deadly halbards (pole axes) of Switzerland’s fierce mercenary armies were the terror of Europe. The “furia Helvetica” ruled the battlefields until 1515 at Marignano when French guns, firing at point-blank range, tore apart the massed Swiss pike phalanxes.
Today, the memory of Swiss military glory is preserved at the Vatican by its colorful Swiss Guard.
 

Guns, Children and Accidents: Four Blunt Points

An extensive front-page report on the death of children linked to gun accidents, the latest installment in the New York Times series on “the gun industry’s influence and the wide availability of firearms in America,” contains laudable reporting. Unfortunately, it also betrays a perplexing aversion to fundamental statistics that undercut its thesis. As a result, I fear the article will do more to fuel the culture war over firearms than it will to spur rational debate and reform.

Let’s break it down:

Rather than fighting the New York government through the state court system, the Second Amendment Foundation filed its lawsuit in federal court seeking to prevent the New York government from enforcing provisions of the SAFE Act that prohibit the use of gun magazines containing more than seven rounds, according to the lawsuit.

SAF is joined in the federal lawsuit by the Shooters Committee for Political Education (SCOPE) and Long Island Firearms LLC. The groups are all represented by New York attorneys David Jensen and Robert P. Firriolo.
 

IN: Stand Your Ground coming to schools if firearms instructor has his way

School system employees will have the right to carry weapons and use them under a "Stand Your Ground" defense if one firearms instructor in Indiana has his way this year.

Guy Relford is that firearms instructor, and he also happens to be an attorney. He is also a passionate advocate in the fight for increasing the rights of parents and school officials and employees when it comes to protecting children. But the executive director of the Indiana Association of Public School Superintendents thinks letting just anyone carry a gun into the school is not a good idea, even if they are employed there as an adult.

The state of Maryland is arguing its case for gun control.

The U.S. District Court in Baltimore has given the attorney general’s office until noon Monday to file its response to a lawsuit filed last week by opponents of the state’s new gun control law.

A court hearing is scheduled Tuesday, the same day the law is scheduled to take effect.

The lawsuit says the law was passed in “flagrant disregard” of the gun rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment.

A two-decade family feud came to a violent end when a man shot dead the two home invaders that killed his wife and son, not knowing the assailants included his long-estranged daughter, authorities said Sunday.

Though the investigation of Friday's shootings continues, authorities said it appears Josephine and Jeffrey Ruckinger planned to murder her family at their rural central Pennsylvania home — but it remains unclear what exactly led to the deadly confrontation.
 

FL: Bill Would Exempt Warning Shots From 10-20-Life Sentences

"I'm very hesitant to change anything in 10-20-Life," Baxley said. "Except that I've run into this more than once, where constituents have gotten into this narrow space where they were trying truly to avoid a conflict by a warning shot, and instead wound up charged and having to plead to a felony of lesser degree to avoid a prison sentence because they just were afraid to face a jury."

The bill also is backed by the National Rifle Association, according to NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer, who said that if Alexander had shot her husband, she probably would have been immune from prosecution under Florida's Stand Your Ground self-defense law.

the ATT includes “small arms and light weapons” within its scope, which covers firearms owned by law-abiding citizens. Further, the treaty urges recordkeeping of end users, directing importing countries to provide information to an exporting country regarding arms transfers, including “end use or end user documentation” for a “minimum of ten years.” Each country is to “take measures, pursuant to its national laws, to regulate brokering taking place under its jurisdiction for conventional arms.” Data kept on the end users of imported firearms is a de-facto registry of law-abiding firearms owners, which is a violation of federal law. Even worse, the ATT could be construed to require such a registry to be made available to foreign governments.

Since they can’t win at the ballot box or in the courts (lately) their next campaign is to force the business community to limit customer’s Second Amendment rights and this is one example. VISA has knuckled under to the anti-American left.

After working with VISA for four years and without a single problem, the credit card company has told Hyatt Gun Shop, Inc., one of the largest gun brokerage firms in the United States, that it is terminating its relationship.

Hyatt owner, Larry Hyatt, recently shared the message he got from Authorize.net, the online credit service run by VISA.

I hung the rifle on its sling over one shoulder, the bear trap over the other, and staggered down the street to my car three blocks away with my treasures. A beat cop passed me about one block away and asked if he could help. I gladly accepted and he carried my 60 lbs of ammunition to my car. I got his name and phone number and took him duck hunting later that fall. We became lifetime friends.

Today I would be surrounded by SWAT teams, tasered or shot by a sniper and at the very least jailed for many years, or dead, for the same then common act.
