TX: Dead criminal’s family whines that Dallas homeowner didn’t warn home invader before shooting him
Submitted by: jac

Lakesha Thompson sports a particularly warped view of the entitlement mindset:

An elderly man shot and killed a would-be burglar inside his Oak Cliff home.


“He could have used a warning,” Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins’ sister-in-law, said. “He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense.”

Pipkins had a lengthy criminal record. He served time in prison and was convicted of theft, possession of a Controlled Substance and criminal trespassing.

Thompson almost seems to view home invasion as a “no-harm, no foul” game until someone in her family earns a bullet as a result of his criminal activity.

Here’s my question: Say that instead of the camera being (say) 6 to 12 feet above Lehecka, it was 6 to 12 feet to the side of someone (call him Joe Schmoe), being carried by someone standing on the beach. It could have been a normal camera, or a cell phone camera. The person — a paparazzi (paparazzo), a freelance news photographer, or anyone else — was recording video without Schmoe’s permission.

Richard Fitzpatrick was serving with Alpha Company, 3rd Recon Battalion in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1991 when he first started thinking about reinventing a common military field expedient dating back to Vietnam. He was one of the many infantrymen who used duct tape and parachute cord to fabricate loops attached to the bases of rifle magazines, making them easier to remove from ammo pouches and to control as they were turned 180 degrees for insertion into rifles. In the late 1980s, the standard-issue “ALICE” magazine pouches tended to be oversize and would swallow up all but the top half inch of a magazine. That made paracord loops essential so a soldier could get a grip on the magazine when under stress.
 

GOA: Abolish Gun Free Zones By Making Their Creators Financially Liable

Pratt again stressed that whether we are talking about schools or military facilities or shopping malls, gun free zones are “murder magnets” that attract “dirt bags” who prey on the defenseless. And he said one of the best solutions is to go into states that allow gun free zones and pass laws making clear that those who create such zones have “strict liability” for any lives lost in them. This approach would center on businesses at first, but would certainly have a ripple effect from that point.

A target shooting explosion that seriously wounded a firearms instructor over the weekend wasn't part of a training course, but instead was meant for entertainment, the instructor said.

Scott Turner, 42, was discharged Wednesday from OHSU Hospital after he was hit by shrapnel in his wrist and chest from the blast. He is the top instructor and owner of NW Self-Defense Education and was teaching a firearms course at a rural Washington County training spot at the time of the accident.
 

The Surgeon General Re-Fills His Public Health Prescription

President Obama’s surgeon general Vivek Murthy made news again this month by saying he doesn’t regret calling gun violence a public health issue.

This is just another example of the gun control lobby trying to change the debate they are losing by changing the language used to describe the criminal misuse of firearms. Rather than focusing on criminal justice policy changes to help continue and accelerate the steady downward trend in gun-related violence, the anti-gun crowd actively seeks to redefine the issue as a public health problem.
 

NJ: Michael Tumminelli (and family), Next Victim Number…?

It is not every day that you get contacted by a man like Michael Tumminelli; a combat veteran, Department of Defense employee, and credentials and qualifications that would take pages to write about.

What is most shocking is the fact that the State of New Jersey, despite “legitimate and credible” threats to his life and family, still denies him a basic human right to self defense.
 

Regal Theaters Checking Purses, Bags to Ensure Law-Abiding Citizens Unarmed

Regal theaters have said, “backpacks and bags of any kind” will be subject to searches for theater goers’ safety. At the same time, The Wrap reports the theater chain admits their policy “is not without flaws.”

Of course, those “flaws” will result in law-abiding citizens paying a price for being unarmed—a price that those denying the exercise of Second Amendment rights are largely immune from paying.
 

NY: Court ruling pleases president of Genesee gun rights chapter

The head of the local chapter of Shooters Committee on Political Education praised a recent court ruling in favor of the organization in a civil lawsuit against the state.
“I mean, it’s good if they follow through,” said Bill Fox, president of the Genesee County chapter of SCOPE.
The follow-through to which he referred involves a State Supreme Court judge’s decision to order Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state police to turn over documents related to an incident that occurred last year in Albany. A demonstrator at a pro-gun event had a toy gun and a cardboard cutout of a gun seized by state police.

On August 20, Gun Owners of America executive director Larry Pratt described the Democratic Party on the federal level as “increasingly” tyrannical and focused on passing laws to take guns away from law-abiding Americans.

Pratt said, “The Democrat Party has increasingly become a party of tyranny. And you can’t be a good tyrant if there are a whole bunch of schlubs running around with guns.”
 

AL: Ala. Sheriff wants to control pistol permits: ‘We know things about our citizens’

In 2013 Governor Bentley signed the Omnibus Gun Bill into law, giving Alabamians what proponents of the bill called “the strongest Second Amendment protections in the country.” Now, the Alabama Sheriffs Association is calling for those protections to be rolled back.

The law changed Alabama from a “May Issue” concealed carry permit system to a “Shall Issue” permit system, meaning it requires that a sheriff must issue or deny a citizen a carry permit within thirty days. Should that person be denied a permit, a written denial must be provided and that applicant would have an opportunity to appeal the denial.

“I certainly understand and respect the second amendment I’m not trying to take guns from Texans,” said Houston Police Chief Charles McClelland.

But citizens and even cops aren’t used to seeing people walking around with guns visible and it’s got Houston’s top cop worried.

“Because this is something so different that young children even criminals now will be in an environment where a gun may be present that they can see,” McClelland said.

The other day, however, Combee swam against his own legislative current, filing a bill that reins in some practices of gun owners. His measure would outlaw backyard gun ranges, an idea that has the endorsement of the Florida Police Chiefs Association and, according to Combee, the National Rifle Association.

Ed.: The bill would ban shooting ranges on residential lots smaller than one acre.

Gun control advocates love Australia. That country is famous for having surrendered guns and gun rights after the Port Arthur massacre of 1996. President Obama has spoken longingly about the Aussie solution, though we’re constantly reassured that he’s not coming for our guns. But how do the claims made about our antipodal sister nation compare with actual data? The usual concerns are suicides and homicides—and in the latter, a subcategory of mass shootings.

We defunded Planned Parenthood long before videos depicting its disgusting tactics were released, and we enacted pro-life legislation. We defended the Second Amendment by passing Castle Doctrine and concealed-carry legislation. And we now require a photo ID to vote.

It is time the Michigan Legislature takes a stand against the powerful gun lobby to protect the right of Michigan children to learn in a safe environment. There is no way a school employee can determine who is a God-fearing, law-abiding, gun-toting parent exercising his or her Second Amendment right or who is a unbalanced individual entering a school to kill.

Inflammatory commentary about the merits and risks of selling flamethrowers to the masses aside, Fouts questioned the product’s materials testing and overall safety. He brushed aside any assertion that banning a commercially-available handheld flamethrower would infringe on the rights of residents afforded under the Second Amendment.

“This isn’t a constitutional right any more than it’s a constitutional right to have hand grenades,” Fouts said. “You could really get ridiculous. According to the Geneva Convention, I think it’s been outlawed. I can’t see any good coming from a potentially very lethal weapon of mass destruction.”

Yesterday’s homicide body count in Baltimore reached 211, according to WBAL News, and during the course of the discussion Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was calling for tougher federal gun laws, though the report acknowledged that the city’s violence “surges on despite Maryland’s gun laws, some of the toughest in the country.”

Washington, D.C. is infamous for having some of the nation’s strictest gun control laws. It is also incredibly violent, and there has been a recent surge in murders that the district’s Democrat leadership has been unable to slow, much less stop.

In a desperate attempt to appear that they are “doing something,” Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Cathy Lanier are now upping rewards for those willing to turn in some criminals:
