The New York Times’ War on Gun-Owning Rape Victims
TOWNHALL.COM Oct. 31, 2014 – Nasty New York Times editorial writer David Firestone pretends to care about campaign scare-mongering. But what he and his elitist ilk really fear are independent-thinking women who have dared to exercise their First Amendment powers to defend their Second Amendment rights. This week, Firestone took aim at “attack ads” sponsored by the National Rifle Association. The “worst commercial,” he says, “features a rape victim describing her assault and accusing” former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg “of wanting to take away her right to defend herself.” [full article]
Friday, October 31, 2014 --What does a guy know about rape? Not much. Guys are seldom victims. Girls frequently are. Why do they put up with it? Fear of disclosure? Embarrassment? Public exposure? Possible recurrence? Thoughts of “He won’t want me if he knows I’ve been raped?” All of the above.
The remedy? You can run but you can’t hide. Someone, somewhere will find you. Not necessarily the rapist. A friend or relative. They see your face. They recognize your fear. They speculate, then suspicion that you’ve been physically, mentally, psychologically abused. Get a gun.
Really, get a gun. Pepper spray might work but the rapist will live to rape again. Fight back physically. Scratch, tear, kick, scream. Use a stun gun. Carry a loud whistle and blow it alarmingly. Get a gun. Legally.
Go to a range. Shoot it. Train with it. Get a partner and role-play to learn how to resist and repel. Honest, respectful men are afterthoughts, after the fact afterthoughts. Your safety depends solely on you. Three aiming points: crotch, head, center mass. Quickly. He’ll never rape again.

NEWS 4 JAX, Oct. 30, 2014 - JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - "Firearms are disturbingly easy to come by on the streets of Jacksonville," said Assistant State Attorney Rich Mantei, who runs the special prosecution unit of the State Attorney's Office. Mantei said investigators with his office have bought handguns, AR-15 assault rifles, AK-47s, even sawed-off shotguns from convicted felons, who he says have no business carrying, let alone selling firearms. "We buy from people who are convicted felons," said Mantei about the focus of their undercover investigations. Under state law, a convicted felon cannot own a firearm. Many of the guns involved in undercover sales will likely to be used to commit violent crimes. These guns are hard to trace since when they are bought on the street there is no record of the sale, which means there is no way to track who may have used it, if it becomes evidence in a crime.

KTUU TV Oct. 30, 2014 ANCHORAGE - Mayor Dan Sullivan has vetoed an ordinance approved by the Anchorage Assembly last week that would ban new palisade fences in town, in an effort to prevent moose from being impaled on their spikes. Sullivan confirmed his veto of Jennifer Johnston’s ordinance, first reported by Assembly member Dick Traini, in a Wednesday statement. "The incidence of moose being wounded or killed by palisade fencing is very, very low," Sullivan wrote. "Contrast this with the cost of cutting off the spikes or pales or completely replacing fencing within the next five years and it is easy to see that the total financial impact far outweighs the benefit of saving a few moose."

FILM INDUSTRY NETWORK.BIZ Oct. 30, 2014 - It’s ok to bring guns into a theatre but wearable tech can now send you directly to jail. While the fight for piracy goes on, the fight to increase public safety nationwide in movie theatres isn’t even happening. After past tragedies, some movie theatres have imposed bans on guns being brought into movie screenings, but there is no industry motion to encourage theatre owners to ban guns outright at public screenings. Some may argue that banning guns in theatres would violate their human rights, others would say why need them? [full article]
WCCO CBS LOCAL, Oct. 30, 2014 - MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The hotly contested 8th Congressional District campaign took another turn this week, over guns. The National Rifle Association is pouring nearly $750,000 into a negative ad which mocks incumbent Democratic Congressman Rick Nolan. The ad features an actor in a suit and a goofy hat, posing for election-year photos. “Nolan doesn’t get basic gun safety, and doesn’t know how many shells go in a duck gun,” the ad says. There is also a man holding cue cards in the ad, which read, “Keep Your Finger Off The Trigger,” and, “Three Shells In A Duck Gun.” The ad ridicules a widely-circulated image of Nolan posing for pictures with his finger on the trigger of an AR-15. He also told the Associated Press duck hunting guns could hold six shells instead of the legal three. [full article]
WNEM TV Oct. 30, 2014 - VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Vicksburg police are investigating a second home invasion in just two days. This time the target was an elderly man. Investigators in the River City say a woman familiar with the 82-year-old homeowner had repeatedly tried to gain entry into his home. Wednesday she forced her way inside, but he wasn't as vulnerable as she thought. Mr. Roosevelt Wilson met us at the door of his Vicksburg home with pistol in hand, not taking any chances after fending off a woman who kicked open his door just hours earlier. [full article]
CBS 4 DENVER Oct. 30, 2014 - A CBS4 Investigation has found Coloradans are circumventing the state’s controversial ban on high capacity gun magazines in numerous ways both basic and clever. “I’m not surprised at all,” said Weld County Sheriff John Cooke, after viewing the results of the CBS4 Investigation. Cooke has been a vocal opponent of the 2013 law which bans gun magazines that hold more than 15 bullets. “People are going to find a way around it,” said Cooke. He said four high capacity magazines, purchased by a CBS4 undercover producer in the last four months, were all usable. [full article]
Q13FOX Oct. 29, 2014 - LAKEWOOD, Wash. — Dozens of handguns, AR-15 rifle parts and high-end scopes were stolen from a gun shop early Monday morning. Several thieves broke into a vacant store next door and broke through a wall that’s shared with Quantico Tactical. “We’re very concerned about where those guns are going to end up. We certainly don’t want them being used in a shooting such as Marysville that just happened,” ATF Special Agent Brian Bennett said. The value of the stolen items is estimated around $40,000. Authorities are now working closely with the store to see what exactly was stolen. [full article]
Lessons from the Ferguson Black Riots of 2014
A PSA FROM Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL)
ALAN KORWIN, October 10, 2014 -- The 2014 riots in Ferguson, Missouri ,should serve as an important reminder to anyone who is thinking about owning a gun. When your safety is already at risk, it may be too late to buy that first gun.
Why do I say that?
1. You’ll be lucky to find a gun at a gun store when EVERYBODY is trying to buy one. And IF you do find a gun, it may not be the best gun or the most suitable gun and it’s going to cost you a lot more money than it would have before the emergency. [full article]
JIM MATTHEWS, September 22, 2014 -- The ammunition manufacturing industry in the United States effectively said it is going to abandon California hunters, help reduce hunter opportunity and sound wildlife management, and assist in driving more hunters from the sport. This will make it much easier for the anti-hunters in this state to accomplish their goal and simply ban hunting entirely.
To explain that requires some background: The anti-hunters have more influence in Sacramento politics than the hunting community. It was the pressure from those anti-hunters that pushed the California legislature to ban the use of lead ammunition for hunting (AB 711) by 2019. The antis were able to convince the liberal legislature, which is profoundly anti-gun, that lead ammunition shot by hunters was a danger to the state’s wildlife resources. It doesn’t matter that that’s a profound lie. With an emasculated Department of Fish and Wildlife that was muzzled from refuting those claims and a pro-hunting lobby that is largely ignored in Sacramento, the legislation passed easily.
