Trumpocalypse? Suddenly Liberals Are The Ones Stockpiling Food, Guns, and Emergency Supplies
Submitted by: Anonymous

Now that the shoe is on the other foot, many liberals all over America have suddenly become extremely interested in prepping.

Fearing that a Trump presidency could rapidly evolve into a “Trumpocalypse”, a significant number of leftists are now stockpiling food, guns and emergency supplies. In fact, even though many had expected a sharp drop in gun sales following Trump’s victory, what actually happened is that fear of what is coming under Trump pushed background checks for gun sales to an all-time record high on Black Friday. The election of Donald Trump has awakened the left to a degree that we haven’t seen in decades, and some on the left are embracing hardcore survivalism without any apologies.

A Delaware judge has sided with state environmental officials in a lawsuit challenging a ban on non-hunting firearms in state parks and forests.

Members of the Bridgeville Rifle & Pistol Club and the Delaware State Sportsmen's Association who have concealed-carry permits challenged the ban in a Chancery Court lawsuit last year, saying it violates their constitutional right to carry firearms.

The lawsuit was refiled in Superior Court earlier this year after the Chancery Court dismissed it for lack of jurisdiction.

On Friday, a Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the state, saying the regulations do not violate Delaware's Constitution.

The trio also has partnered on several other prefiled bills.
 

AZ: Tucson asks Arizona Supreme Court to toss out complaint over guns

The city of Tucson is asking the Arizona Supreme Court to throw out a lawsuit filed by Attorney General Mark Brnovich over the city's policy to destroy confiscated guns.

The 30-page motion filed Thursday night suggests the legal mechanism that brought the complaint to the state's highest court — SB 1487 — is unconstitutional and therefore, unenforceable. The state is threatening to pull shared revenue from the city unless Tucson stops destroying seized guns.

Tucson receives $115 million a year in state-shared revenue.

Additionally, city officials argue the gun destruction policy — which applies to handguns and semi-automatic firearms — is a protected action as Tucson is a charter city.

New Jersey legislators have blocked an attempt by the Christie Administration to administratively expand the rules under which someone can obtain a permit to carry a handgun within the state.

Lawmakers have passed resolutions indicating that the proposed rule is incompatible with legislative intent, a rarely used move that stops the rule from taking effect.

Students are not allowed to bring concealed guns to Milford school grounds, but non-students are allowed to carry.

The School Board decided Monday that non-students with valid concealed carry permits are allowed to have guns in school zones due to state law, the Telegraph reported.

The board decided that the federal Gun Free School Zones Act only applies to students, meaning they are not allowed to carry on campuses.
 

Gun Rights Proponent’s ‘Audit’ of Everytown School Shooting Data Is Misleading

An “audit” from Bearing Arms claiming to debunk the school shooting data compiled by the Everytown Gun Safety Support Fund is currently circulating around the Internet. Since active shooter incidents are such a hot topic for CS readers, I figured I’d review the publication’s findings to see if there were something more I could learn about shootings on K-12 and college campuses. After closely reviewing the article, however, I found it to be very misleading.

At this time, the shooting is being investigated by police as self-defense. It appears the shooter was defending himself against a home intruder who had broken into the apartment, according to Orem Police Department.

A man is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries after he was shot in the chest at an apartment complex in Orem, Utah.

The man was discovered at or near a residence at Village Park Apartments. The victim was taken to a hospital but details of his condition are not available.

Granted, this depends on the law of your state and the disposition of local police and prosecuting attorneys, as some are more forgiving than others. There may be laws that allow more leeway in the case of defense of mere property. Texas, for instance, has a provision at law for applying deadly force in defense of property, though it is in limited circumstances.

The students who attend classes at our UW System may be old enough to serve in our nation’s military, and those who would choose to carry a self-defense weapon must provide proof of training to acquire their CCW permit, but I now feel much better knowing that when the students and faculty of UW-Madison become the next target of an ISIS-inspired madman, the killer will not be harmed (or stopped) by an armed and otherwise law-abiding citizen. That is, unless he is beaten to death by the few lucky survivors who are still able to swing the plastic dildos provided to them by the liberal community activists who seem to be setting public policy on our campuses.

Miss Sloane was supposed to be an effective gun hater propaganda masterpiece. It should have been considering the money spent on it.

The production budget for “Miss Sloane” is reported at 18 million, with one of the top advertising budgets for movies, ever, of 15.9 million. Total box office, so far is just short of 3.2 million. It seems likely to be a major loser. Prospects for video sales look dim.

Bringing a gun into an airport checkpoint is a really big mistake, but as more people carry more frequently, such mistakes are bound to happen.

The Transportation Security Administration is reporting that the number of guns discovered at security checkpoints at our nation’s airports has been steadily growing in recent years.

TSA says they confiscated 2,653 guns from airline passengers in 2015, and are on track to break that record this year. They have been averaging a little more than seven guns a day at airport security checkpoints nationwide.

Mark this important date on your calendar. If you need to reserve a vacation day before the end of the year – DO IT NOW!

Because several pro-Second Amendment legislators lost in the recent statewide election, we will have an uphill battle when the General Assembly returns to Springfield for the new session in 2017.

Anti-rights legislators will be more determined than ever to disarm law-abiding citizens.

Davison County residents have purchased or renewed more concealed carry permits in 2016 than in any other year.

Through Dec. 21, the Davison County Sheriff’s Office recorded 643 people who purchased or renewed a concealed carry permit, which allows someone to carry a pistol where it is not visible to others. Most people in South Dakota over 18, excluding those convicted of certain criminal offenses, may carry a pistol if it is not concealed.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Today the taxing power, rather than chattel slavery, is the instrument by which the parasitical element of the population subsists. And that element, which includes politicians, panics at the slightest reduction in the state's power to plunder. Once you start liberating taxpayers, even a little tiny bit, nobody knows where it may end. —Joseph Sobran
