Multiple videos have been posted online showing what uploaders described as hockey fans destroying a Los Angeles Police Department drone outside the Staples Center Friday night after the LA Kings won the NHL's Stanley Cup.
Riot police were called in to break up what the LA Times described as a "melee" outside the arena following the King's victory over the New York Rangers.
In one clip posted online, a drone can be seen hovering over the crowd of hockey fans before it was knocked out of the sky by people throwing shoes and clothing: ...
In another clip, the drone is not visible, but the hockey fans can be heard chanting, "We got the drone! We got the drone!"

Hundreds of demonstrators are planning to march across the Brooklyn Bridge to call for tougher gun control laws.
Saturday's demonstration comes after a wave of mass shootings across the U.S.
It is being underwritten by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the nation's most visible gun control advocates.
The marchers will include relatives of some of those slain in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
They will gather in downtown Brooklyn and then march across the bridge to City Hall.
The group will then hold a demonstration outside the building's gates to call for tougher federal firearms regulations.

SNIP

On May 22d Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a likely 2016 US Presidential candidate, signed into law HB 72 which, among other things, legalizes gun carry in restaurants which serve alcoholic beverages. The law takes effect on August 1st, 2014 and applies to persons holding concealed handgun permits issued or accepted by Louisiana.

Jindal’s signature drives yet another nail into the coffins of both alcohol and gun prohibition. . .

A home invasion and robbery in Pasco County is exposing some problems in the 911 dispatch system.
It happened earlier this week on Gwain Road in Port Richey. A man called 911 after four robbers with guns broke into his home, demanded money and prescription drugs.
The dispatcher tried to transfer the call from the fire department to law enforcement side of things – but he got a voicemail just as the crooks returned to the home.
Chaos ensues. The man takes matters into his own hands and shoot one of the robbers.
 

MO: Teachers carrying firearms a long shot at largest lake-area districts

Faculty wanting to carry a concealed firearm may have the go ahead from the state, but school officials at the two largest lake-area districts are leery of the addition.

“First and foremost that would have implications related to our insurance coverage. If that was somthing that our community wanted, we would need to take a look at our insurance carriers and possibly make some serious changes there," Camdenton R-III Superintendent Tim Hadfield said.

Currently the district's coverage allows school resource officers to carry firearms but not teachers or other personnel.
 

Obama (Again) Touts Australian Gun Control, Misleads (Again) On Background Checks

On Tuesday, Barack Obama once again shared his desire for Australian-style gun control to be imported stateside. While participating in a Q&A session involving the social media website Tumblr, Obama described the failure to enact gun control legislation as the “biggest frustration” of his presidency. The president added, “A couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting… And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not seeing that again. And basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws.”
 

VA: Drummed-up fears drive gun sales

The civilian firearms industry in the United States has been declining for several decades. The National Rifle Association’s sole purpose is to keep the industry profitable. The NRA couldn’t care less about the Second Amendment except how it can be used to sell guns.

Convincing people they need guns for self-protection is a fear-based marketing strategy. Guns in the home are far more likely to be used in completed suicides, gun accidents or killing women in their homes than for self-defense.

While noting his own fondness for hunting, Offerman made some particularly trenchant points regarding the Second Amendment and open carry laws. "The Second Amendment protects our right to own guns, specifically so that we can defend our country from invading armies, or from our own government, should a king end up taking over things and trying to make things more royal around here," he said. "The Second Amendment is not there to protect our right to intimidate the teenage cashier at Chipotle."
 

NY: The NRA has twisted the right to bear arms into the right to kill kids

The Second Amendment has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud — I repeat the word “fraud” — on the American public by special interest groups that I have seen in my lifetime.

No, that’s not my opinion, (well, it is but I didn’t originally say it). Nor was it said by President Obama, Mayor Bloomberg; not Rambo, Rimbaud, or a random, raving ranter.

That anti-Second Amendment sentiment was said by none other than Chief Justice Warren Burger, a hard-nosed conservative appointed by Richard Nixon.

Democrats consistently campaign on the defensive; letting the opposition frame the debate and choose the terms; Obamacare, Benghazi, the “IRS scandal” the War on Coal. They wield the Second Amendment like a mace and lie that liberals plan to eviscerate the First. Complacent independents and Democrats may not be well informed or likely voters in off-year elections but they can understand actual facts and become angry enough to do something about them.

The statistics they show list the United States as having the greatest ownership of civilian firearms, at 270 million, which equates to an average of 89 firearms for every 100 residents. The country next in line is Yemen, with a civilian firearms ownership of 11.5 million, equating to an average of 55 firearms for 100 residents. On consulting the statistics on murders with firearms, in a list of 46 countries the United States is fourth with 9,369 in statistics compiled by NationMaster in 2013, from input from the CIA World Factbook, the UN and OECD. South Africa, Colombia, and Thailand are the countries that top the United States on this listing.

Lumyra Mitchell, a 27-year-old cake baker and mother of two, never thought she’d ever shoot at a person. It had been years since she touched her family’s semi-automatic rifle,which they kept high on a shelf in their upstairs bedroom closet, until one evening in February, when Mitchell heard some noises on the back porch.
 

MI: Chief James Craig: 'Detroiters Have Become Somewhat Desensitized By Violent Crime'

When James Craig took on the job as Detroit Police chief last year, the city was facing the prospect of bankruptcy, the political structure had collapsed, an emergency manager was in place, police precincts were closed to the public after 4 p.m. and the department was in need of a serious shakeup.

Craig came in, reopened the precincts to the public, thinned out what he saw as a bloated executive staff, put more cops on the street and drastically reduced the number of officers on the mayor’s security detail.
 

Federal Appeals Court Strikes Down Warrantless Cellphone Tracking

Regarding the telephone company, the court explained that when a person uses a telephone, he “voluntarily convey[s] numerical information to the telephone company and ‘expose[s]’ that information to its equipment in the ordinary course of business.”

The 11th Circuit did not agree. Quoting a prior ruling by the Third Circuit, the court in Davis held:

“When a cell phone user makes a call, the only information that is voluntarily and knowingly conveyed to the phone company is the number that is dialed, and there is no indication to the user that making that call will also locate the caller.” Even more persuasively, “when a cell phone user receives a call, he hasn’t voluntarily exposed anything at all.”

“I think it’s probably outstanding for a couple of reasons. One, a similar case has been litigated in Idaho successfully,” he said, “and two, at least as far as camping is concerned, … your camper or tent or whatever you’re camping in becomes your home, at least for a temporary basis. The Supreme Court has ruled that you have a Constitutional right to have a gun in your home.”

The lawsuit does not request a jury trial and seeks to have the ban on handguns on Corps property declared “unconstitutional on its face and as applied.” It also asks for a preliminary and permanent injunction prohibiting the enforcement of the regulation banning guns on Corps property.

Beth Murphy got a few things wrong about the second amendment in her column, “The Untouchables.” The National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934 did not ban sawed off shotguns, they could still be possessed if you paid a $200 tax. Miller got in trouble for not paying the tax. Contrary to Beth’s opinion, the decision in Miller was silent as to whether the second amendment was a collective (militia) right or an individual right. In fact, the court never addressed this issue at all until the Heller decision in 2008.

You recently hailed “Australian gun laws.”

In doing so:

--You praised a government for forcefully removing all semi-automatic firearms from its populace.

--You admired the banning and confiscation of guns.
We expect to hear that from a European leader – but not you.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The NRA has a point about the inadvisability of simply taking guns away from the populace. If that were possible, it would not disarm that small percentage of the population willing to break the law.... Punishing people who obey the law is backward thinking. — Hugh Downs, Veteran ABC newsman
