A restaurant owner has seen more customers frequent her business after she posted a “Guns are Welcome” sign on the front door of her family-friendly establishment.

“As the owner, I wanted to stand my ground. I have that constitutional right. If you like it, that’s great, if you don’t, I’m sorry for you. I can’t change who I am,” Sharma Floyd, with Shiloh Brew and Chew, told WBIR.

Floyd explained that she was inspired to post the sign at her restaurant after reading a story about a restaurant in North Carolina.

“They had put up a sign that said ‘No Weapons Allowed’ and they were robbed at gunpoint two days later. The convenience store manager was shot,” Floyd shared with WBIR. “And that got me thinking. I lost a whole group of motorcyclists because they thought I didn’t allow weapons. But I believe it’s ok to carry as long as you have a permit.”

Floyd stated that more than 20 new customers have come to eat at her Southern style restaurant since she posted the signs.

Ben Carson on 2nd Amendment: People Can ‘Protect Themselves From an Overly Aggressive Gov’t’

Dr. Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and the author of six best-selling books, said the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution was put there so Americans could support the military, if needed, during a domestic invasion but “more importantly, so that people could protect themselves from an overly aggressive government, if that ever happened.”

Carson added that gun rights under the 2nd Amendment are “vitally important,” that he “would never compromise the 2nd Amendment in any way,” and that one of the first things dictators do is confiscate people’s weapons, which “we don’t ever want to allow” in America.

Director Of Bloomturd’s Anti-Gun Group Compares Gun Violence Toll To 9/11

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg may want to keep a closer eye on his advocacy staff, after a director of his anti-gun legislation compared the death toll from gun violence to the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001.

Jason Rzepka, director of cultural engagement at the liberal anti-gun group Everytown For Gun Safety, made the comments at a Netroots event last week.

Everytown is an anti-gun group started by Bloomberg, the 16th richest man in the world. The organization spends $50 million per year, combining campaign contributions with field operations, and aiming to bring at least one million gun-control supporters to the polls.

During the event, a member of the audience asked Rzepka what his organization was doing to rebut opponents of gun control. He was also asked if there are “any big opposition research opportunities that we could take part of because we really want to let the media and the public know as much as possible about these opponents and the amount of money and power behind them?”

Rzpeka responded that the group is working to increase awareness and public support for improving gun safety laws, and also to “strengthen the tremendously weak gun laws across the country.”

“But in some ways, I think a lot of people are becoming numb to it and they’re losing sight of the fact that 31,000 American lives that are being lost each year,” Rzpeka said.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lawsuit Filed Against ATF After Law Prevents DC Residents From Buying Handguns in TX

Lawsuit Filed Against Eric Holder, ATF Director After ‘Overreaching’ Law Prevents D.C. Residents From Buying Handgun in Texas

When Washington, D.C. residents Ambeau and Andrew Hanson tried to buy a handgun from the Texas gun shop owned by Fredric Russell Mance, Jr., Mance wouldn’t sell because of a federal law preventing interstate handgun sales — a ban that does not apply to rifles and shotguns.

Mance wanted to make the sale, and the Hansons wanted to buy at a lower price than what they could get in the District of Columbia, where there is only one federally licensed firearms dealer – which means higher prices, according to federal lawsuit filed in Fort Worth, Texas, by a gun-rights group.

The lawsuit names Attorney General Eric Holder and the B. Todd Jones, director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are the co-defendants. Mance and the two D.C. residents are also part of the suit.

The Washington-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, or CCRKBA, is also a plaintiff. The lawsuit is funded by its affiliate, the Second Amendment Foundation.

“It is overreaching, if not downright silly, in today’s environment with the federal instant background check system to perpetuate a prohibition on interstate handgun purchases that has outlived its usefulness,” CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said in a statement. “If a law-abiding citizen can clear a background check and legally purchase a handgun in his own state, he would pass the same background check just across the border in another state.”

Playing Mind Games With the Second Amendment (Mental Health and Your Gun Rights)

Are you one of the more than 40 million Americans who suffer from depression or anxiety? If so, then hold on to your guns, because a trip to your doctor for relief could strip your constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.

In typical Machiavellian fashion, President Barack Obama is using public safety as an excuse to violate federal law, pry into your personal medical records, and add your name to a federal database tracking individuals with diagnoses of mental illness. Obama originally announced his intent on January 16, 2013, when he signed 23 executive orders purportedly intended to curb gun violence. One of them aims to “address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act [HIPAA], that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.” Notice that the president regards your medical privacy rights as “unnecessary legal barriers.”

How does this affect your gun rights? Federal law contains a mental health prohibition, disqualifying certain people with psychiatric diagnoses from owning guns. The Federal Gun Control Act of 1968 forbids possession of firearms by anyone judged “as a mental defective,” and it vaguely defines that term as a person identified by “lawful authority” to be a danger to himself or others, or to be lacking in mental responsibility. The act allows government officials to rob “mental defectives” of their gun rights, which can only be restored by a long and costly court process.

Like other ambiguously written laws, this one is easily abused. “Mental defective” is already liberally applied to anyone the government deems as being incapable of managing his own affairs. “The problem is growing,” said Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America (GOA). He told The New American, “We have learned that if a fiduciary has been appointed for any reason, that is being used as a predicate for grabbing guns.” The National Rifle Association reported in April, “Under existing federal regulations, a person who experienced a temporary reaction to a traumatic event or who has trouble handling household finances may well be treated the same as a violent psychopath.”

But Obama intends to make this dangerous law worse. Characteristically, he’s avoiding what he obviously considers another “unnecessary legal barrier,” vowing in his January State of the Union address to pursue his anti-gun agenda “with or without Congress.” True to his word, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) delivered a one-two punch in January, each proposing bureaucratic dictates designed to broadly expand the federal mental health prohibition.

Gurning contest winner Maloney doesn't like the First Amendment any better than she does the Second.

The news of the latest baloney from Maloney comes from a Wednesday entry on Roll Call, where we learn she was reacting to yet another in a seemingly interminable line of transparently ridiculous anti-gun hit pieces in Rolling Stone.

Pratt’s “offense”?

He actually had the gall to claim “the Second Amendment is for “for restraining tyrannical tendencies in government … especially those in the liberal, tyrannical end of the spectrum.”

The nerve of the guy. Next thing you know, he’ll be quoting homegrown terrorists!

Komrade Mayor De Blasio’s Getting SLAMMED by New York Media

New York City mayor de Blasio speaks about the city's emergency preparedness for a summer storm bearing down on New York, at an official weigh in ...

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio won his job in a landslide last November, but is finding out that staying so popular is not easy.

On Thursday, he was labeled “an ass” on the cover of one city tabloid after being skewered in another as behaving like Marie Antoinette and accused on television of being a socialist.

“It does seem to me that de Blasio has gotten a much shorter honeymoon than previous mayors,” said Jerry Skurnik, a veteran political consultant.

De Blasio, who won office with 73 percent of the vote in the city’s biggest mayoral electoral win in decades, came under fire this week with his plans to take a vacation in Italy despite the threat of a Long Island Rail Road strike.

That prompted a headline in the New York Post that read: “Let Them Ride Gondolas.”
