What preppers are doing about Ebola
Submitted by: Anonymous

The so-called prepper community has a long list of concerns—and for quite some time Ebola has been near the top of it. Experts, though, are split on whether the confirmation that the disease has entered the U.S. will spur a rush in equipment sales.

Even as awareness of doomsdayers grows thanks to a reality series on the National Geographic Channel, sales of supplies like canned food and hand-cranked flashlights had actually begun to level off before Tuesday.

And since Ebola has been on the community's radar for so long, many people have already stocked up.
 

FBI Claims Stopping Power A “Myth”

On the heels of the Army looking to replace the 9mm Beretta pistol as its standard sidearm, the FBI’s Training Division released a “new study” in May that was recently leaked to the public. The Study claims that the 9mm Luger pistol is the best option for law enforcement. Suggesting that departments shouldn’t switch their sidearms to larger rounds.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: Someone could have saved the government a lot of money by conveying this wisdom to Colonel Thompson and Major LaGarde, who published their findings years before the FBI even existed and which led to the adoption of the 1911 .45 ACP.
 

IL: Anti-Gun Gurus in Chicago Dealt Another Blow

Second Amendment opponents in Chicago were just dealt another blow. After a court struck down a law banning gun ranges within city limits, council members approved legislation to comport with the ruling. Or at least that’s the argument aldermen tried to sell. The wryly crafted law turned out to be just another ploy – citing “public safety,” the council confined gun ranges to just 10% of the city. Thanks to a lawsuit led by the Illinois State Rifle Association, this infringement was show down too. According to the ruling, the defendants failed to provide “data or empirical evidence that any criminal impact would occur due to the presence of a firing range or that it would be lessened by placing ranges in manufacturing districts.”
 

WA: Dueling Measures

If you want to buy a gun from any Washington firearms dealer, you have to submit to a criminal background check. Or you can bypass the paperwork and log onto Armslist.com where, as of this writing, you can purchase a "very smooth action" semi-automatic AK-47-style rifle from a private seller in Spokane — complete with six 30-round magazines and a khaki-colored tactical chest rig for $800. No questions asked.

The so-called "gun show loophole" in fact applies to all private sales in Washington state. Under federal law, only licensed gun dealers are required to run background checks to ensure their customers aren't legally prohibited from owning firearms due to felony convictions, domestic violence records or a serious mental illness.

 

CA: Gun law fires blanks

Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a measure creating gun-violence restraining orders that would allow law enforcement to seize firearms, without due process, from any person who “poses an immediate and present danger” to themselves or others. The legislation allows law enforcement officials, licensed mental health professionals and family members to request the order.

Given the already numerous prohibitions on gun ownership by various categories of people, such as those convicted of a felony or individuals admitted to a mental health facility because they posed a danger to themselves, the law would apply to otherwise lawful gun owners.
 

WA: End the carnage, support I-594

Take a step toward ending the carnage. Vote for I-594. The Second Amendment was never intended to create a right to murder. Think of it — JFK, MLK, RFK, Columbine, Aurora Colorado, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech, Cafe Racier plus individuals in our county, including a state trooper.

Only 4 percent of schizophrenics are violent. We can’t yet predict schizophrenia (it is a gene variant.) How can we possibly predict violent schizophrenics and so called normal people who might murder?

Gun registration with background checks at gun shows and at dealers when individuals are exchanging guns is a first step.
 

Tips For Women: Choosing A Semi-Automatic Handgun

Once so-called women’s guns were either revolvers—touted for ease of operation—or tiny, underpowered .22 or .32 semi-autos. Now, women can choose a semi-automatic handgun from an ever-growing selection, many designed for concealed carry.

With more options than ever, prioritizing desirable features in a self-defense semi-automatic helps women make good choices at well-stocked gun counters. Sadly, not all gun store clerks are savvy to the needs of their female customers, and too often confuse small and light with proper fit and functionality. Let’s consider semi-automatic selection priorities to ease the female gun owner’s first buying experience.

The Oregon Firearms Federation yesterday released a report alleging that the Beaver State’s background check “gun buyer harassment scheme” has failed, and warned that neighboring Washington’s Initiative 594 ballot measure would “expand this failed system to private transfers” north of the Columbia River.

“Make no mistake,” OFF warned, “background checks are gun registration schemes. Efforts to expand them are being funded by billionaires with armed guards. The battle is coming.”

The Second Amendment fundamentalists, on the other hand, make no distinction between concerned citizens and homicidal maniacs. They believe that there should be no regulations of any kind insofar as the sale of firearms is concerned.

Their ideology is rooted not in the concept of self-defense, but self-identity. Radical anti-gun control activists evaluate their own personal worth on the basis of firearm ownership.

A man who shot at two intruders as they fled after beating him in his apartment can't invoke Wisconsin's castle doctrine law to protect him from liability, a state appeals court ruled Tuesday in a case that clarified how far the self-defense statute extends.

The ruling stems from a case involving Charles Chew. According to court documents, his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend and one of the new boyfriend's friends entered Chew's Sheboygan Falls apartment and beat him in November 2012, breaking Chew's nose and three of his ribs.

What do you do if you see your neighbor’s camera-equipped drone hovering above you house?

Practice skeet shooting, perhaps?

One New Jersey man took justice into his own hands this week, peppering a robotic drone device over his home with blasts from a shotgun.

Gigaom has details on this bizarre story, noting that it represents a complex issue of “how to balance the rights of drone owners against people’s rights to privacy and self-defense.”

Known for his year of infamy after being acquitted of the shooting death of a Florida teen, George Zimmerman wants to set the record straight so to speak by telling his side of the story — unchallenged — on Armed American Radio.

The interview is schedule to air on the show on Oct. 19 in a remote, undisclosed location.

“What I want to do is have a conversation with George Zimmerman in such a fashion that the mainstream media won’t understand — that this is Armed American Radio. I’m pro-self defense, I’m pro-concealed carry,” said Mark Walters, the show’s host.

The National Rifle Association, the nation’s largest gun lobbying group, is targeting a handful of Democrats in close Senate races with one of the most provocative — if not downright scary — ads of the campaign season.

Let’s set the scene: A young mother puts to bed her infant child and receives a text, presumably from her husband, letting her know his plane landed.

"Love you. Good night," she texts back.
 

NV: Woman puts 2 bullets into long-time stalker’s chest after he kicks in her door

A woman who wrote about being stalked for the past six months by a man who made her life a living hell finally confronted the man as he kicked in the door of her Las Vegas home – and put two bullets into him.

The shooting took place early Friday morning, according to Las Vegas Fox affiliate KVVU, but the story started month earlier.

According to a pre-shooting account the woman posted on her Reddit account Sept. 25, the two dated for only a month. But for the past six months, the woman wrote, the stalker has hounded her — physically, by telephone, through the U.S. mail and through social media – with increasing malevolence, telling her “you no longer deserve to draw breath.”

On guns, the high court may get a fresh chance to say whether the Constitution's Second Amendment protects firearms possession outside the home. The justices have declined to intervene twice in recent years, turning away challenges to New Jersey and New York laws that require a special need to carry a handgun in public.

Now, a case from California has deepened a split among lower courts. A federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled that responsible, law-abiding citizens are entitled to carry a concealed firearm in public for self-defense. Again, a larger panel of judges is weighing a request for a new hearing.

Business has been booming at Bergeron’s Restaurant since owner Kevin Cox came up with an emphatic declaration of his support for the Second Amendment: offering any gun-toting customers a reduced price on their meals.

Cox said he’s seen a 15 percent spike in his West Baton Rouge Parish business after news spread that he was handing out 10 percent discounts to people with an appetite for Southern-inspired home-cooking walking into his restaurant with firearms at the ready.

Last year, on the way the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC), I had an unexpected encounter at a diner in central Texas. I rode my motorcycle to that GRPC.

This year I took my truck to the GRPC in Chicago. I have friends and family in Wisconsin that I wanted to visit, and some items that would have been less comfortable to carry on a motorcycle. This year the encounter happened after the conference.

Deep-fried anything may be allowed at the N.C. State Fair, but guns are not, and now a pro-gun group plans to sue the state to allow those with concealed-carry permits to bring their weapons onto the state fairgrounds.

The long-standing ban was reiterated Tuesday by state Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, one day after Grass Roots North Carolina representatives said they met with him about the issue.

“We are not concerned about a law-abiding citizen coming onto the fairgrounds and doing intentional harm,” Troxler said. “But we are concerned about accidental discharge. You don't want to take a chance on this happening if you can avoid it, and thus, our decision.”

Two local filmmakers made a gun violence movie using a grant from the city, and they hope it has an impact on the November election.

Voters will have a choice between I-594, which would require people who buy guns online or from private parties to undergo a background check, and I-591, which would prevent Washington from adopting any rules more stringent than required by the federal government. The filmmakers said their movie is not about picking sides on the gun issue, but about starting a conversation.

The theme of "The Statistician" is the randomness of gun violence and how people barely seem concerned.

Eighteen months after demonstrating that he could make a 3D-printed gun, Cody Wilson announced Wednesday that his nonprofit group, Defense Distributed, has now moved on to simplifying the process of manufacturing traditional metal guns.

Defense Distributed is now selling a $1,200 computer-numerically-controlled (CNC) mill—dubbed the "Ghost Gunner"—that can complete an unfinished lower receiver for an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle as part of a limited pre-order. While designed to mill an AR-15 lower, the CNC could theoretically mill anything of a similar size.
 

IL: Court Sides With SAF On Key Points In Challenge of Chicago Gun Range Law

A federal judge has sided with the Second Amendment Foundation on key points of an on-going legal action against the City of Chicago that challenges the city’s municipal code regarding gun ranges inside the city.

The case, Ezell v. City of Chicago, challenged the city’s code by asserting that the regulations involving installation and operation of gun ranges inside city limits are burdensome. In a 32-page decision, U.S. District Court Judge Virginia M. Kendall concurred with SAF’s positions on the city’s zoning and requirements regarding hours of operation. SAF had earlier defeated the city’s total ban on gun ranges in 2011.
