"There’s much that does not add up to the narrative portrayal being formed, and there will be time as the story unravels to determine what is factual and what has been 'leaping to illusions.' Perhaps following these links will provide clues to help with that."

“'Just got off the phone with Jerry Delemus, the head of the outer security operation the day that these folks were turned away,' Vanderboegh reported. “These people looked to me like the couple we turned away and Jerry confirmed it. He is positive on the ID."
 

War Gear Flows to Police Departments

Inside the municipal garage of this small lakefront city, parked next to the hefty orange snowplow, sits an even larger truck, this one painted in desert khaki. Weighing 30 tons and built to withstand land mines, the armored combat vehicle is one of hundreds showing up across the country, in police departments big and small.
The 9-foot-tall armored truck was intended for an overseas battlefield. But as President Obama ushers in the end of what he called America’s “long season of war,” the former tools of combat — M-16 rifles, grenade launchers, silencers and more — are ending up in local police departments, often with little public notice.

Many 'open carry' advocates claim they're just asserting their second amendment rights, but now an advocacy group with a strong presence in Michigan is pushing back.

An organization called 'Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America' is speaking out against open carry and what they consider the dangers of it.

Kristen Moore, a Michigan representative of the company says the main concern is that there is no proof those who openly carry have any formal training, unlike those who carry a concealed weapon.

The organization has collected more than 150-thousand signatures in order to persuade companies to prohibit open carry inside its stores.

en. Jason Carter was in rural southwest Georgia to talk about health care. But during a panel discussion, a local schoolteacher complained about the gun law that Carter supported and the legislature passed this spring. And so did Bill Massee, the mayor of Marshallville, Georgia, who complained the gun law made his city hall less safe because his town can't afford to buy metal detectors.

Ghane joined the Navy in June 2004 and entered SEAL training in November 2004 in Coronado, California. He joined the West Coast SEAL teams in June 2007.

Ghane’s mother, Narjess Ghane, filed the lawsuit in 2009 against Mid-South. She argued the wall through which the bullet passed was not bulletproof as intended. Mid-South built the wall for the training exercise.

Ed.: Since when are walls bullet-proof?

During the question-and-answer portion of the Miss USA pageant, 24-year-old Miss Nevada Nia Sanchez, who took home the crown, said she believed some colleges might sweep campus rape under the rug to prevent bad press. Sanchez, a fourth degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, added, "more awareness [of the issue] is very important so that women can learn to protect themselves … You need to be confident and be able to defend yourself. That's something we need to start to implement for a lot of women."

I hate to be the one to inform these women, but “don’t rape” is already on the curriculum.

According to feminists, women shouldn’t need to defend themselves against rape, and that’s true. People shouldn’t need to defend themselves against murder, theft, or terrorist attacks either. It’s horrific that people commit these crimes, and in a perfect world they wouldn’t. But rapists and murderers and terrorists are a fact of life. It’s not that the messaging campaigns around these issues aren’t effective; it’s that there are terrible people in this world.

A fatal shooting in Northside on Sunday evening could be a case of self-defense, a Cincinnati police spokeswoman said Monday morning.

Sgt. Lisa Davis, acting public information officer for Cincinnati police, said the Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office is reviewing the case.

The man taken into custody after the shooting at the intersection of Chase Avenue and Cherry Street has not been charged.

David Wheeldon, 41, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 6:22 p.m. attack.

The Love's Travel Stop security guard who shot and killed an unarmed truck driver will not be indicted, a Montgomery County grand jury ruled.

The Montgomery County Prosecutor's Office announced Monday that neither Joshua Karp, 25, nor anyone else would face charges in the death of 48-year-old Goran Sojic. Karp fired multiple times at Sojic on Dec. 8, 2013 at the new truck stop on Edwin C. Moses Boulevard.

A press release from the prosecutor's office said that Sojic, "while speaking a foreign language, charged at an armed, uniformed security guard behind the enclosed cash register area, and refused his commands to stop, which caused the security guard to fear for his life, as well as the safety of others inside the establishment."

On June 9, Esquire columnist Charles P. Pierce addressed the Las Vegas attack that killed two police officers by criticizing law enforcement's support of the NRA positions on guns. He went so far as to state that a police officer who has an NRA sticker on his personal car window is a "traitor to the uniform."

Miss USA 2014, Nia Sanchez (Nevada), just so happens to be a fourth-degree black belt in taekwondo, and liberal feminists are not too happy about it. Cosmo editor Elisa Benson responded with this tweet: “I get that the college sexual assault problem can't be solved in 30 secs but still icky to pretend like self defense is the answer.” The Huffington Post’s very own Mandy Velez (editor) tweeted: “Let's hope Nevada uses her media tour to reiterate that teaching girls self defense is NOT the best way to protect against assault.” This is not a new conversation.

Before 6 on Sunday morning, just hours before they killed two police officers and a civilian in a display of antigovernment violence, Jerad and Amanda Miller left their two beloved cats with Kelley Fielder, the next-door neighbor with whom they had been staying. Ms. Miller, 22, promised to return later. Mr. Miller, 31, did not. He gave Ms. Fielder a tearful hug, and said, “I got to do what I got to do.”

“ ‘The revolution has begun’ — that’s what he kept saying,” Ms. Fielder said Monday. “All Jerad wanted to do is talk about overthrowing the government. I thought he was talking smack.”
 

Six Falsehoods Pushed By Bloomberg’s Gun Control Apparatchiks

On “Meet the Press” earlier this month, Michael Bloomberg claimed that what he is doing “is nothing about gun control.” But host David Gregory, acting as a cheerleader, not a probing questioner, let that statement go unchallenged. Unfortunately, Bloomberg is used to overwhelmingly uncritical media coverage.

Bloomberg, who is currently spending $50 million per year on his various gun control organizations, has pushed for everything from assault weapon bans, magazine size limits, gun-free zones, fees on people buying ammunition or guns, and a long list of other regulations. He now wants to convince us that he is very reasonable.
 

TX: Open Carry Texas: Judge for yourself

Texas isn't as gun friendly as its reputation suggests. I started Open Carry Texas to spread this message. The reason our members openly carry rifles and shotguns is because Texas law permits that, but not the open carry of handguns. We think the Texas law should change to allow open carry of any legal firearm.

As part of our mission, we have worked to remove the stigma of guns in society. The gun-control lobby engages in emotional brainwashing to further its attempts at disarming the American people. Open carry of firearms has been proven to deter crime, which is why we believe it is so important.

Damn straight! As Twitchy reported, Cosmopolitan editor Elisa Benson does not think so. You see, self-defense as a form of protection against sexual assault is just “icky.” Such asinine “feminist” freak-outs began after Miss Nevada suggested that women learn how to defend themselves. You know, actual empowerment.

According to Algorri, sheriff’s deputies initially said they first encountered Mallory in the hallway wielding a gun and stumbling toward them. They later changed the story, Algorri said, when the bloodstains on the mattress indicated Mallory was in bed at the time of the shooting.

Investigators also found that the audio recording of the raid indicated a discrepancy in Bones’ account. Before listening to the recording, he believed that he told Mallory to “Drop the gun” before the shooting. The recording revealed, however, that the command came immediately after Bones opened fire.

The top priority, though, has to be preservation of human life. In the last 14 years, there have been more mass killings of the Newtown/Isla Vista/Virginia Tech sort in this country than in the rest of the world combined. The vast majority of lives taken came via shootings.

Which means something is amiss. Does that mean no person in psychotherapy should have a gun? Does it mean police should have the right to question every gun owner?

Probably not. But if mental illness is the common denominator in mass killings from the Texas Tower to Newtown, Columbine and Isla Vista, then it's high time to make it much harder for the mentally ill to acquire firearms of any kind, no matter how carefully laws doing this must be crafted.
 

Justice Dept to Survey Federal Agencies for Guns, Ammo

The Justice Department plans to take an inventory of all the federal agencies whose agents are authorized to carry weapons and make arrests.

The move is apparently aimed at calming Second Amendment activists' fears about gun and ammunition buys by the likes of the U.S. Postal Service and the Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The research will be conducted by the Bureau of Justice Statistics. It's not clear when the report will be ready for public viewing.

"It's certainly proper for every agency to have an accurate accounting of what firearms it has," said Dave Workman, communications director for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
 

DC: Post-Heller D.C. Continues to Experience Historically Low Homicides

Criminologists, sociologists, and economists can debate the reasons D.C. has witnessed such a transformation, but three things are clear. First, the District’s worst years for homicide were experienced under the unconstitutional Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975, which banned new handguns. Second, homicides, which were already trending downward, continued to plummet following the 2008 Heller decision that overturned the city’s handgun ban. Third, predictions about the catastrophic outcome of recognizing Second Amendment rights for D.C. residents have been proven, in the intervening six years, to be unfounded hysterics.

The man who, along with his wife, allegedly fatally shot two Las Vegas police officers yesterday, before she shot a legally-armed private citizen who tried to intervene, apparently has a criminal history in Benton County dating back to 2000-2002, the Las Vegas Review Journal is reporting today.

Jerad Dwain Miller and his wife, Amanda, simultaneously gunned down officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo in a pizza restaurant in Las Vegas. The couple then went across the parking lot into a Walmart where Jerad was confronted by 31-year-old Joseph Robert Wilcox, who was legally armed.
