Beretta USA Announces Decision To Move Its Entire Maryland Manufacturing Capabilities To Tennessee

Beretta U.S.A. Corp., located in Accokeek, Maryland, announced today that it has decided to move its manufacturing capabilities from its existing location to a new production facility that it is building in Gallatin, Tennessee. The Gallatin facility is scheduled to be opened in mid-2015. Beretta U.S.A. had previously planned to use the new Gallatin, Tennessee facility for new machinery and production of new products only.

“During the legislative session in Maryland that resulted in passage of the Firearm Safety Act of 2013, the version of the statute that passed the Maryland Senate would have prohibited Beretta U.S.A. from being able to manufacture, store or even import into the State products that we sell to customers throughout the United States and around the world. While we were able in the Maryland House of Delegates to reverse some of those obstructive provisions, the possibility that such restrictions might be reinstated in the future leaves us very worried about the wisdom of maintaining a firearm manufacturing factory in the State,” stated Jeff Cooper, General Manager for Beretta U.S.A. Corp.

“While we had originally planned to use the Tennessee facility for new equipment and for production of new product lines only, we have decided that it is more prudent from the point of view of our future welfare to move the Maryland production lines in their entirety to the new Tennessee facility,” Cooper added.

NYPD Choking Death of Man – More Than Just a Chokehold Issue!

Begging for your life counts as "resisting"

The brutal takedown and arrest of Eric Garner by the New York Police Department in Staten Island, which was quickly followed by the man’s death, became top national news after New York Daily News released video of the encounter (check here for more info).

There was a rally about the incident on Saturday (with Rev. Al Sharpton in attendance) and Mayor Bill DeBlasio has said he was “deeply troubled” about the incident and called for more investigation.

The focus, though, seems to be primarily on the chokehold itself used to take Garner down. Two officers involved in the incident have been assigned to desk duty during the investigation. A sample of some headlines about the circumstances of Garner’s death: “Death of New York man sparks closer look at police use of chokeholds” (Los Angeles Times); “Complaints About Chokeholds Are Focus of Study” (The New York Times). Nearly every headline surrounding the incident focuses on the chokehold.

Washington Navy Yard Shooting Report: 160 Cameras and NO ONE Watching!

Cameras showed the Navy Yard gunman’s every move, but arriving police didn’t know the control room existed. Employees who had cellphones locked away to protect military secrets had no way to dial 911. Arriving police were stuck outside security gates as the base went on lockdown. Aaron Alexis came face-to-face with several Navy Yard employees who survived, including one who threw a megaphone at the gunman and ran as a shotgun blast sailed by. These are among the dozens of details in a new report obtained by The Washington Post under a Freedom of Information Act request. The report was written by D.C. police to better understand how the shooting unfolded and what lessons they could take away.

160 cameras, and no one watched.

A private security guard was in an office with monitors showing the feeds from 160 security cameras while the shootings occurred. Those cameras, police now know, covered almost every inch of Building 197 and were documenting in real time every move by gunman Aaron Alexis. But the guard locked the door, hid and notified no one that he was there with access to the information.

NY Court rules it’s ‘reasonable use of force’ for parents to spank their kids!

Watch your butts, kids — a state appeals court says it’s OK for parents to spank them.

In a ruling Wednesday, the state Appellate Division found that a Long Island father’s spanking of an 8-year-old boy “was a reasonable use of force.”

A Suffolk County Family Court judge had determined last year that the father of the boy had abused his son “by inflicting excessive corporal punishment.”

The father allegedly spanked the child with an open hand as punishment for cursing while they were at a party at friend’s home back in 2012, the appeals court ruling says.

“Further, it was alleged that after the father and the child returned home from the party, the father repeatedly struck the child with a belt on the buttocks, legs and arms,” the ruling said.

Identifying SHTF Indicators (Must Read for Urban Dwellers)

Tags: No Tags

Published on: July 21, 2014

I had a couple really good questions this past weekend about looking for indicators signaling a SHTF situation. How can we tell an emergency event is going to happen before it happens? What can we look for? Those are very good questions but they’re not easily answered. We’ll work on breaking it down here. I want each of you to have a way forward to start developing your own Early Warning Indicators (EWI) for whatever threats you may be expecting.

To best describe EWIs, I’ll start with an analogy. Intelligence analysts identifying EWIs are a lot like insider trading. Inside traders who buy or sell a company’s stock do so because they learn sensitive information signaling a shift in the real or perceived value of that company. Inside traders sell off a company’s stock before news comes out that the company didn’t meet analysts’ earnings expectations. Alternatively, they buy a company’s stocks because they learn that a company will exceed earnings expectations, and then they stand to profit once that news is published and the stock price increases shortly after.

Another fitting analogy is a warning from a fire alarm or tornado siren. The ‘intelligence analyst’ in this case smells or sees smoke and then pulls the fire alarm (or the smoke sensor goes off automatically). Meteorologists or eye-witnesses confirm that a tornado or tornadic activity is in the area, and then the sirens go off, alerting nearby residents of the need to get to cover.

Governments around the world encourage (pay) intelligence analysts to identify EWIs in order to predict future ‘moves in the market’ of conflict and geopolitics. But identification of EWIs is only one part of the equation. Without the ability to ‘see’ the battlespace, intelligence analysts aren’t effective. We need the brain (the analyst) in order to identify EWIs, and we need the eyes and ears (the collector) to inform the brain about the environment. Developing eyes and ears is a critical step but we won’t talk about that now (go to the Collection category of this blog to read all the intelligence gathering articles).

So once intelligence analysts have all this information coming in, we start to get a good picture of the full spectrum of threats in the battlespace. Now there are four types of threats: Conventional, Irregular, Catastrophic, and Disruptive.

Governments are Racing to Make the Internet a Gun-Free Zone

Despite the fact that I consider the prevailing majority of Facebook posts to be the single largest culprit of wasted broadband, I do hold a certain amount of awe for the internet. Shortly after Al Gore invented the technology, the instantaneous exchange of information became a global phenomenon. (Although, those early dial ups can hardly be considered “instantaneous.”) The internet might be, in most cases, the last beacon of relative freedom. Ideas can be spread, information disseminated, and cute kitten pictures shared… All with a simple click of a wireless mouse. While there is an amazing amount of debauchery and misinformation on the world-wide-interwebs, it still stands as a relatively unrestricted, lightly regulated and highly accessible wealth of opportunity.

Apparently, a 20-something year old in Texas felt the same I way I did a few years ago; but, unlike myself, he actually had the brains to contribute to the world of technological wonder. Feeling that the free exchange of ideas might be used as a contagion of freedom for other aspects of civilized society, he set about to create a firearm that one could “print” using any internet connection and a 3D printer. Setting up a non-profit (so that his information could be legally shared world-wide) Cody Wilson – a law student at Austin University – created a digital file that is capable of “printing” a fully operational plastic firearm.

Needless to say, governments around the world immediately entered panic mode.

N.Y. immigration groups to close over alleged fraud (Oh No! It Can’t Be True!!)

Two of the largest non-profit immigration service groups in the United States will shut down after being accused of defrauding thousands of clients, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said on Monday.

The International Professional Association will close immediately and the International Immigrants Foundation within two years, Schneiderman said. Their remaining assets of $2.2 million would be used to provide restitution to clients.

Schneiderman’s predecessor, now-Governor Andrew Cuomo, filed a lawsuit in 2010 against the groups and Edward Juarez, their president. He claimed they charged exorbitant fees for their services, including securing work permits and residency, and that their workers falsely claimed to be lawyers.

Juarez allegedly used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle and give jobs to his former wife and children.

“Organizations like IIF and IPA prey upon vulnerable individuals who seek a better life in this country,” Schneiderman said in a statement.

thumbBlack Conservatives Met With Hostility, Harassed at Annual NAACP Convention (Video)

The NAACP is holding their 105th annual gathering in Las Vegas, Nevada this week. This year’s theme? “All in for justice and equality.” And what better venue could there be for fighting against injustice and inequality then a multimillion dollar Las Vegas resort, the lavish Mandalay Bay.

After years of rejection, black conservatives were allowed a single booth at the convention this year, but they’re still locked out of speaking at the convention.

As minimal and restricted as their presence is at the NAACP event, black conservatives are still met with open hostility by NAACP faithful because they fail to toe the Progressive line. Yesterday, conservatives Deneen Borelli, director of outreach at FreedomWorks, CL Bryant, a fellow at FreedomWorks, were harassed in the convention hall just because they are conservatives.

Crony-Capitalism is A Great Way to Kill a Gun Company (Colt Blows It Again)

Given that our Commander in Chief is a surprisingly decent firearm salesman, it’s a little odd that one of America’s most prolific gun manufacturers might soon be facing an agonizing financial death. But, that’s exactly where Colt is headed if things don’t change drastically. It takes a very specialized form of failure for a gun company to miss out on the Obama-inspired run on guns, the “assault weapon” craze of the 2000’s, and the proliferation of Concealed Carry in the 1990’s, but that’s exactly what happened. And, worse, this isn’t Colt’s first foray into fiscal failure.

In fact, this tendency of Colt to stumble onto hard times has a name in the industry: It’s called the “Colt curse”. It’s been around since Samuel Colt first bankrupted his hopeful arms company in the 1830’s. God may have made man, and Samuel Colt may be credited with making men equal; but, it has always been an uphill battle. It turns out that Colt was pretty good at making guns – but he was a failure at marketing and selling his contribution to the world of weaponry.

Anti-Gun Colorado Senator Udall: His Chances of Winning Are Slipping Through His Fingers!

Colorado Senate race prediction

Republican Hero Cory Gardner (Left) and Democrat Scumbag Mark Udall (Right)

 

The Colorado Senate race is unrecognizable from the one described in a May, 2013, National Journal article entitled, “Colorado’s Forgotten Senate Race.” PPD’s election projection model has warranted two rating changes since the entrance of Rep. Cory Gardner in February, both of which clearly show this race slipping away from incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Udall.

In February, after Ken Buck made the decision to drop out of the race to make way for Gardner, a far more electable rising star in the GOP, we changed our Colorado Senate race rating from “Likely Democrat” to “Leans Democrat.” Now, after adjusting the variables used in our 2014 Senate Map Predictions model to reflect recent developments, we are once again changing the rating for this race.

“The incompetence of the Obama administration, the incompetence of Harry Reid’s leadership in the Senate has worn thin on the American people,” said Rob Collins, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “So we just need to provide an alternative that says we can grow our economy, we can create more jobs, we can tackle this debt and we can fix ObamaCare.”

John Lott: Christie Was Right in Vetoing Recent NJ Gun Ban Legislation Limiting Mag Size

Gun control advocates just can’t let go of Gov. Chris Christie vetoing of a bill limiting gun magazines to 10 bullets. Christie’s warning that the bill wouldn’t save lives might not be politically popular, but it was scientifically accurate.

Obviously, politicians aren’t supposed to question whether gun control works, especially not so bluntly. But Christie wasn’t going to support new laws just for the sake of “doing something.”

“This is the very embodiment of reform in name only,” Christie noted in his veto. “It simply defies common sense to believe that imposing a new and entirely arbitrary number of bullets that can be lawfully loaded into a firearm will somehow eradicate, or even reduce, future instances of mass violence.”

Christie’s reasoning has driven many critics crazy. Former Republican congressman and current MSNBC host Joe Scarborough slammed Christie as making one of the “stupidest arguments” he’s ever heard. In Sunday’s Star-Ledger (“One Gov. to another: A missed opportunity”), Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy took the unusual step of unloading on him in an opinion piece, calling the decision “appalling” and “callous,” accusing Christie of doing it for “personal political aspirations,” and that the decision defied “common sense.”

Bloomturd Proxy Releases Anti-Gun Manifesto; Proposes to Ban Cartoon Characters and Colors!

The name of U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) headlines the Kelly Report, a new manifesto identifying a long list of gun control initiatives that anti-gun activists intend to pursue in the near future. However, the document appears to be the handiwork of Michael Bloomberg, whose misleadingly-named Independence USA political action committee contributed $2.1 million to Kelly’s congressional campaign last year. With Bloomberg’s help, Kelly was elected to fill the Chicago-area seat previously held by fellow gun control supporter Jesse Jackson, Jr., who is currently doing time in federal prison.

The Kelly Report consists of essays by gun control supporters, followed by a long list of gun control legislation and other efforts they support. Anti-gun activist groups represented in the “report” include Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, the Brady Campaign, the Educational Fund to End Gun Violence, the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, and Americans for Responsible Solutions.

The “report” advocates two gun control restrictions intended to achieve universal gun registration incrementally. They are “universal” background checks, a Bloomberg priority, and repealing the law that limits the amount of time that the FBI can retain records on people who pass background checks to buy guns. Kelly also calls for gun registration outright.

The report also advocates a federal “assault weapon” and “large” magazine ban more severe than the one in effect between 1994 and 2004, gun owner licensing, repealing Stand Your Ground laws, opposing national Right-to-Carry reciprocity, empowering the Consumer Products Safety Commission to regulate the manufacture of firearms, prohibiting unlicensed and mail order ammunition sales, reporting people who purchase 1,000 or more rounds, removing restrictions on public access to BATFE firearm trace data, repealing the federal law that prohibits frivolous lawsuits designed to bankrupt the firearm industry, requiring “ballistic fingerprinting,” pursuing “smart” gun technologies, and using taxpayer funds to pay for “research” that promotes gun control.

There has also been a further development and, no, we are not making this up. On Monday, even though children are already prohibited from buying firearms at retail under federal law and the laws of most states, Kelly introduced H.R. 5093, the Children’s Firearm Marketing Safety Act. This legislation would direct the Federal Trade Commission to prohibit the use of cartoon characters to market guns to children, to prohibit the manufacturing of guns in colors designed to appeal to children, and other such nonsense. As UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh points out, the cartoon character ban would be unconstitutional and the color ban might be as well.

Regardless of who’s behind the “Kelly Report,” it and Kelly’s cartoon character bill remind us of how gun control supporters think and what they intend to do, once they have the votes in Congress and the state legislatures. And that reminds us of what we have to in the voting booth on Election Day.

U.S. House Votes to Protect D.C. Residents’ Right to Keep and Bear Arms

On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) attached an amendment to a bill providing funding to the District of Columbia that would prohibit the District from expending any funds to enforce certain gun control laws. The amendment passed 241-181. The amendment blocks enforcement of the Firearms Registration Amendment Act of 2008, the Inoperable Pistol Amendment Act of 2008, the Firearms Amendment Act of 2012, and the Administrative Disposition of Weapons Act of 2012.

NRA has long supported efforts by Congress to protect the Second Amendment rights of D.C. residents. D.C. politicians have decried these efforts as an attempt by the federal government to intercede in local matters, but a general preference for local regulation in the United States does not trump the civil rights of residents of the District. Since 1999 NRA has supported a number of bills to protect the rights of D.C. residents, including an amendment to H.R. 2122 (1999) to repeal certain D.C. gun laws, H.R. 3193 (2004) to limit the D.C. Council’s authority to regulate firearms, an amendment to H.R. 3058 to limit funding to enforce D.C.’s gun ban, and various versions of the Second Amendment Enforcement Act (SAEA). The most recent version of the SAEA is H.R. 3689, sponsored by Rep. Jim Jordon (R-Ohio). This bill contains a number of measures to bring the District’s laws on the acquisition and possession of firearms in line with the rest of the country, where the Second Amendment is widely respected.

It’s unfortunate that the D.C. Council has so little regard for the constitutional rights of their constituents that federal intervention is required. As long as the Council and Mayor’s Office deny the Second Amendment rights of D.C. residents and visitors, NRA will continue to support federal proposals aimed at protecting those rights. Please contact your U.S. Representative and ask him or her to cosponsor and support H.R. 3689 to protect the right to keep and bear arms in our nation’s capitol.

This Friday, July 18, 2014 photo made available by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, Fla. shows Raymond Frolander, 18. Police say a Daytona Beach father beat Frolander unconscious after finding him sexually abusing his son. Authorities say the father called 911 early Friday after he walked in on the alleged abuse. When officers arrived they found Frolander motionless on the living room floor. He had several knots on his face and was bleeding from the mouth. (AP Photo/Volusia County Sheriff’s Office)

A Daytona Beach father beat an 18-year-old man unconscious after finding him sexually abusing his 11-year-old son early Friday morning, police said.

The father called 911 around 1 a.m. after he walked in on the alleged abuse, police said. When officers arrived, they found Raymond Frolander motionless on the living room floor. He had several knots on his face and was bleeding from the mouth.

“He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you,” the father told the 911 dispatcher. “I drug him out to the living room.”

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that the father — who was not identified by police — told investigators he walked in as Frolander was abusing the boy.

When asked by the 911 dispatcher if any weapons were involved, the father said “my foot and my fist.”

The father has not been charged with any crime.
