  • Ukraine Gun Owners Vow to Enshrine Gun Rights in their New Constitution (Currently Disarmed)

    Ukrainian Gun Owners Association’s official statement

    Today every citizen of Ukraine understands why our country has
    hundreds of thousands of policemen. Last illusions were crushed when
    riot police used rubber batons and boots at the Independence Square on
    peaceful citizens.

    After such actions we realize that it is not enough to only adopt the Gun Law.

    As of today Ukrainian Gun Owners Association will start to work on the
    preparation of amendments to the Constitution, which will provide an
    unconditional right for Ukrainian citizens to bear arms.

    People should have the right to bear arms, which will be put in
    written into the Constitution.

    Authorities should not and will not be stronger than its people!

    Armed people are treated with respect!


  • NYC Politician Proposes Mandatory Parenting Classes for Parents

    New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz Jr. introduced a bill that would require parents of elementary school children to attend a minimum of four parent support classes. If parents don’t go, 6th graders won’t move onto 7th grade.

    Leslie Venokur, the co-founder of Big City Moms, called the idea “crazy” and “insane.” She said that what is most concerning that the education commissioner and Board of Regents would develop the parenting guidelines. She said the Regents should “stick to what they’re good at which is teaching kids and staying away from the parents.”


  • Snowball Thrown at Officer Draws Felony for Texas Boy, 13, Outrage From Residents

    A day after a boy was arrested and charged with a felony for throwing a snowball at a police officer, students outside George Leland Elementary continued to build snowmen and throw snowballs at each other after school.

    According to police, a 13-year-old boy was charged as a juvenile with felony aggravated battery against a police officer Wednesday after he hit the officer in the arm with a snowball while the officer was parked in his vehicle in the 4900 block of West Congress Parkway about 3:20 p.m.

    Residents sounded off on the crime and punishment the next day, many describing the charge as police “going overboard.”

    “It’s not fair,” said Mary Grant, a longtime resident of the block. The boy “was being hardheaded, but that’s very harsh. The officer should’ve tried something different than arrest.”

  • Cops arrest jogging woman because she couldn’t hear them (Unaware Urban Fool)

    Members of the University of Texas-Austin community are outraged that cops arrested an unnamed jogger who ignored police orders because she was wearing earbuds and couldn’t hear them.

    The arrest happened at an intersection near the UT campus. Cops had been camped out at the intersection, issuing dozens of citations to people for jaywalking.

    They planned to ticket a jogging woman, and ordered her to stop. But she was wearing earbuds and couldn’t hear them.

    The officers chased the woman down and grabbed her arm from behind. Not knowing what was happening, the woman pulled away from the officer. This meant that she was resisting, and the woman soon found herself sitting on the ground in handcuffs.

    Local man Chris Quintero watched the incident from a coffee ship window, and was irritated by the police officers’ behavior. He snapped a picture of the woman during her arrest.

    “I was annoyed that the cops were kind of just hanging out on the corner giving citation after citation,” said Quintero in an interview with My Fox Austin. “She grabbed his arm and she shook him off.”


  • Using the Calm Before the Storm: It’s Time to Prepare (An Economic Storm is Coming)

    http://clashdaily.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/jer-630x267.jpg

    The lull is almost over. Now what?

    I don’t need to tell the savvy readership of Clash Daily that this economic “recovery” has been a combination of smoke and mirrors, held together with a shoestring and bubble gum. The plummeting economy, triggered by the collapse of our government-inflated housing bubble, was temporarily slowed in its break-neck decline by the Obama administration’s decision to shovel astronomic amounts of taxpayer money into a hole. In June 2010, after the first round of Quantitative Easing, the Fed had holdings of $2.054 trillion. In November 2010, deciding that things weren’t improving fast enough, QE2 was launched and we bought up another $600 billion of assets/debt. When that failed to stimulate the market into a full-on recovery, QE3 was announced in September of 2012. At that point, the Fed declared that they would be buying $40 billion/month for an open-ended duration.

  • Atlanta Teen Shot, Killed By Police Was Holding Wii Video Game Controller (Our Police at Work)

    The family attorney representing a 17-year-old boy who was shot and killed by a Euharlee police officer says that the boy was holding a video game controller when he was shot opening his door.

    Christopher Roupe was shot and killed on Friday when Euharlee officers showed up at the door of his home at 937 Euhar Lee Road, Lot 5, in Eagle View Mobile Home Park to serve a probation violation warrant for the boy’s father, WSB-TV reports. A female officer told the Georgia Bureau of Investigation that Roupe pointed a gun at her after he opened the door.

    But the family’s attorney, Cole Law, said the boy was holding a Nintendo Wii video game controller, and was about to watch a movie.

    “It just doesn’t add up,” Law told WSB. “We don’t know where that statement came from. The eyewitnesses on the scene clearly state that he had a Wii controller in his hand. He heard a knock at the door. He asked who it was, there was no response so he opened the door and upon opening the door he was immediately shot in the chest.”

  • NYC Cop Assaults Man Recording Him in Brooklyn Subway Station (Video)

    Police Officer Efrain Rojas confronted a man who was recording him give a summons to another man by pulling out his iPhone and recording the encounter.

    Shawn Thomas recorded Police Officer Efrain Rojas inside the Utica Ave. station while he was giving a summons to another person. Rojas came over with his iPhone and started recording his encounter with Thomas. Rojas asked Thomas to stop recording and leave while Thomas hurled profanities. Thomas’ phone was taken away and the was video deleted but later recovered. He was charged with multiple offenses.

    A transit cop allegedly assaulted, then arrested a 47-year-old man recording another man getting a summons at a Brooklyn subway station, according to a bombshell video released Wednesday.

    Shawn Thomas of New Rochelle claimed Police Officer Efrain Rojas attacked him, arrested him and then tried to delete the video of Saturday’s interaction at Brooklyn’s Utica Ave. station.

    Thomas told photographyisnotacrime.com that Rojas dragged him out of the station, forced him face down on a snowswept sidewalk and slammed his head into the pavement, splitting his lip.

    “I was bleeding profusely,” he told the website. Attempts to reach Thomas for comment were unsuccessful Wednesday. “I was having really bad head pains while in jail, so they took me back to the hospital the following morning.”

    Thomas was transported to the hospital twice as he awaited his arraignment Sunday, he said, according to the site.


  • Ohio National Guard Training Envisions Attack By “Pro 2A Terrorists”

    The Ohio National Guard’s Civil Support Team practices in a May 2013 drill at Put-in-Bay

     

    Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.

    The ONG 52nd Civil Support Team training scenario involved a plot from local school district employees to use biological weapons in order to advance their beliefs about “protecting Gun Rights and Second Amendment rights.”

    Portsmouth Chief of Police Bill Raisin told NBC 3 WSAZ-TV in Huntington, West Virginia that the drill accurately represented “the reality of the world we live in,” adding that such training “helps us all be prepared.”

  • The Cold Civil War by Bill Buppert

    “You only have power over people so long as you don’t take everything away from them. But when you’ve robbed a man of everything, he’s no longer in your power – he’s free again.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

    All the conditions for civil war in the United States are coming to a boil. Many revisionist observers of the American Cold War period are discovering that it was simply a continuation of the war on the world the US has been waging since 1893 after the bloody conclusion of the genocidal campaigns against American aboriginals in the nineteenth century and the brief interregnum to consolidate the Federal monopoly stranglehold from 1861-65 when Lincoln nobly swam in oceans of blood to prevent the country from abandoning slavery. The Grand Old Politburo did not free the black man so much as switch out the manacles so he could join his white Helots on the national plantation.

    The recipe for upheaval is peppering the country.

    A large part of the population has, through voting, made it crystal clear that an entitlement culture is not only desired but imperative to providing for all aspects of living. Hence, democracy in America has become a circus and a spoils system in which the candidates compete to see who can advance Mencken’s characterization of all voting as an “advance auction on stolen goods”.

    The post WWII warfare-welfare state has metastasized at the Federal level and unmasked itself since 9/11 to be an unbridled and unapologetic gangster state that takes whatever it wants. It demands total transparency of the taxed citizenry while playing the national security state card to shroud itself in deceit and misdirection at every turn.

    The behavior of cops in the last generation has been the primary marker of the shift in attitude of the state in its relationship with its charges in the land of the free and the home of the brave. Not only has militarization been the harbinger of the worst behavior of police in history in the country but the evil triumvirate of police unions, qualified immunity and the de facto Federalization of all 19,000 police departments polluting the American landscape is quickly bringing the entire sorry enterprise to a head and a boil.

  • Gov Mitch Daniels Passed a Law Authorizing Use of Deadly Force Against Errant Law Enforcement

    Governor Mitch Daniels signed into law a bill in 2012 that authorized citizens to use deadly force to protect themselves from unlawful law enforcement activities. When he signed the law, the press and police unions had a field day describing the predicted effects of the law that they said declared open-season on cops. Since the law was signed, only one human police officer has been killed in Indiana. It was in the normal performance of the officer’s duties and completely unrelated to someone protecting themselves from unlawful intrusion or police brutality. Three police dogs have been killed in the same time period. Since its introduction, not a single officer was killed because of this law.

    In fact, despite propaganda saying otherwise, police don’t have an extremely dangerous job. Law enforcement doesn’t even make the top ten list of deadliest jobs. So please, no emails explaining how dangerous the job is and how this would make it more dangerous. Also, forego the emails stating that law enforcement is there to protect the citizens. They aren’t. This was established by the Supreme Court.

    While being a police officer isn’t that dangerous, it certainly seems like interacting with them is. Being a civilian that has contact with a cop is more dangerous than being a soldier in Iraq. Since the start of the Iraq war, estimates by the Department of Justice place the number killed by cops at over 5000. In all branches of service, the number of killed in action in Iraq is 4489.

    These estimates only include those who actually had their lives ended by law enforcement. It does not include those that were simply beat, sodomized, or had their testicles crushed. In a just society, a young man who was stopped on the street and patted down with such force as to cause his testicle to rupture would have the legal option to defend himself against the assault. If the altercation happened between two civilians, lethal force would have been justified in order to protect from further serious bodily injury. It should have been justified in this case.

  • “No Knock” Police Raid In Iowa – Police Justify Raid Because Resident Was “legally registered gun owner”

    52-police

    The Summary Version is: IOWA Police execute a search warrant based on suspected credit card fraud – However, they smashed down the door in a “no-knock” raid replete with full battle armor. Then the police tried to destroy the CCTV system which was recording their behavior.

    When questioned about the ridiculously excessive “use of force” things get worse because the police justify the execution of the warrant, the extreme measures invoked, based around the principle the occupant was a legally registered gun owner and therefore represented a more significant risk to them. <—- Think about that.

    Personally I have come to the difficult determination that the police are now a danger to us. We have as much likelihood to be victimized by paid law enforcement as we do criminals. It has taken me several years to accept this ‘new-normal’ reality with police militarization; however, there is simply too much empirical evidence to dismiss the obvious. This story is only atypical in that the owner had CCTV systems to document the reality.

    Several reports to review. Here is the original story: Family calls Ankeny police raid excessive – Justin Ross was in the bathroom next to his bedroom when a squad of Ankeny police officers rammed through a side door of his home.

  • Winchester Recalls Lots Of .22 Long Rifle Ammo (Double Powder Cherges)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    From Winchester’s Recall Page:

    1/28/2014

    Olin Corporation, through its Winchester Division, is recalling two (2) lots of M*22™ 22 Long Rifle 40 Grain Black Copper Plated Round Nose rimfire ammunition.

    Symbol Number: S22LRT
    Lot Numbers: GD42L and GD52L

    Winchester has determined the above lots of 22 Long Rifle rimfire ammunition may contain double powder charges. Ammunition with double powder charges may subject the shooter or bystanders to a risk of serious personal injury and/or death, or cause firearm damage, rendering the firearm inoperable.

    DO NOT USE WINCHESTER® M*22™ 22 Long Rifle RIMFIRE AMMUNITION WITH LOT NUMBERS GD42L or GD52L. The ammunition Lot Number is imprinted (stamped without ink) on the left tuck flap of the 500-round carton as indicated here. The 1000-round intermediate carton does not have a Lot Number.

    To determine if your ammunition is subject to this notice, review the Symbol Number and Lot Number. If it is Symbol Number S22LRT with a Lot Number containing GD42L or GD52L immediately discontinue use and contact Winchester toll-free at 866-423-5224 or visit http://www.winchester.com/Product-Service/Pages/Contact-Us.aspx for free UPS pick-up of the recalled ammunition.

    This notice applies only to Symbol Number S22LRT with Lot Numbers GD42L and GD52L. Other Symbol Numbers or Lot Numbers are not subject to this recall.

    If you have any questions concerning this 22 Long Rifle rimfire ammunition recall please call toll-free 866-423-5224, write to Winchester (600 Powder Mill Road, East Alton, IL 62024 Attn: S22LRT Recall), or contact Winchester Customer Support online.

    We apologize for this inconvenience.

    Inconvenience? INCONVENIENCE??? Does Winchester really appreciate how hard it’s been to find any .22 long rifle ammo in the last year? This recall notice doesn’t even promise to promptly replace the defective ammo; I’m sure they’ll win plenty of customer loyalty with that.

    There have been rumors that ammo QC has been slipping over the last year. This is the first concrete example I’m aware of, showing the risks that manufacturers are running by pushing their production lines 24/7 and training up entire shifts of inexperienced employees.

    This risk to shooters is aggravated in this instance, because M22 ammo was specifically designed to be used in AR-style semiautomatic .22s. A bolt-action or break-open .22 probably wouldn’t give a rat’s ass how much powder Winchester stuffed into a .22 long rifle case: it would rupture the case and maybe spit some hot gasses out of the breach but otherwise survive without damage. But a straight-blowback semiautomatic .22 could experience catastrophic internal damage as the still-burning cartridge blasted the bolt rearwards and continued to cook itself off while being ejected from the gun.

    This miserable story is a reminder that even the lowly .22 rimfire still demands eye and ear protection. A ruptured .22 long rifle is damned unlikely to kill you, but escaping combustion gasses and case fragments can ruin your vision if you’re not protected.

    Shoot safe. Always.


  • Woman asks DC Firefighter to Help Dying Father, Firefighter Says ‘Not until I am Dispatched,’ Father Dies

    The Deceased

     

    A 77-year-old man died after collapsing across the street from a fire station, where his daughter had asked for immediate assistance and was instead rebuffed by a firefighter who told her he couldn’t help unless dispatch instructed him to intervene.

    The man, Medric Cecil Mills, collapsed near the Engine 26 fire station in the Brookland area of Washington, D.C. at about 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. His daughter, Marie Mills, went to the station to beg for immediate medical assistance. But the firefighter she encountered there told her that she had to first call 911 so that dispatch could instruct him to assist the dying man, according to The Washington Post.

    “I even ran to the curb and said, ‘Are you going to help me or are you going to let my dad die?’” recalled Marie Mills in a statement to ABC 7.


  • Connecticut Gun Owners Fail to Register! Useless Pols Push for “Amnesty”! Epic FAIL!

    Connecticut Gun Owners Fail to Register; Officials Push “Amnesty”

    After Connecticut enacted one of the most draconian gun-control regimes in America, official estimates suggest that the overwhelming majority of the citizens targeted by the latest assault on gun rights failed to comply. Indeed, analysts say it appears that most people largely ignored the new statute, which purports to ban numerous non-registered “assault” weapons and standard-capacity magazines. Now, despite resistance by the governor, state lawmakers are reportedly “scrambling” to come up with a possible amnesty plan allowing gun owners to register past the deadline.

    According to news reports, some 50,000 newly mislabeled “assault weapons” and 40,000 so-called “high-capacity” magazines (10 or more rounds) targeted under the scheme were registered with state officials by the January 1 deadline. However, estimates and an official report by the Connecticut Office of Legislative Research issued before the new law suggest there are many, many more that went unregistered. Massive non-compliance with gun-registration schemes has been the norm in the United States and abroad, experts pointed out — and analysts say that is likely what happened in Connecticut.

    Noting that the real number of “large-capacity” magazines in the state was unknown, the 2011 Connecticut Office of Legislative Research report said that it “could be in the tens of millions.” Estimates on the number of guns subject to the legislation, meanwhile, indicate that there may be as many as 500,000. Based on those figures, analysts suggested that perhaps less than 10 percent — possibly even less than five percent — of the items subject to the draconian new gun-control regime were registered with authorities by the deadline.

    “Governor Dannel Malloy and the government of the state of Connecticut are having their own ‘Oh, poop’ moment, now that they’ve tallied the number of citizens who have registered their ‘assault weapons’ and ‘high-capacity magazines’ required by the state’s unconstitutional gun laws, compared that to the estimated number of applicable weapons and magazines in the state, and realize they’ve been ignored,” observed Bob Owens, editor of the pro-Second Amendment website BearingArms.com.

    “Historically speaking, 90-percent or more of those required to comply with gun registration laws in the U.S. refuse to do so, and there is no reason to suspect that this registration attempt in Connecticut is any different,” Owens continued in comments about the radical new registration scheme. “I’ve seen estimates of 1,000,000 firearm magazines that should have been registered under the law, but the state reports registering only 40,000 … just 4 percent.”

    Other analysts came up with similar non-compliance estimates, suggesting that the new anti-gun scheme — widely lambasted as unconstitutional and currently being fought in court — has been largely ignored by the public. “In past cases of firearms bans, noncompliance with registration is not uncommon,” pointed out Chris Eger in an analysis for Guns.com, another popular pro-Second Amendment website. “In California in 1990, out of an estimated 300,000 guns classified as ‘assault weapons’ just 7,000 were registered.”

  • Major Cities Consider Ban On Automobiles (Disarmed People Have No Rights)

    Germany, home of the high-speed autobahn, is perhaps one of the few countries that has had as intense a love affair with the automobile as the U.S. But in an effort to go green, the country’s second-largest city is studying ways to eliminate cars by 2034.

    The northern city of Hamburg has laid out an initial concept, named the Green Network Plan, that would expand public transportation and add more routes for pedestrians and bicyclists. The most controversial aspect of the plan calls for a steady phase-out of automobiles in the center of the city over the next two decades.

    And Hamburg might not be alone. The idea of banning, or at least reducing, the use of automobiles in city centers has become an increasingly hot topic among urban planners, especially in Europe and other industrialized countries dealing with issues as diverse as congestion and smog.

    Hamburg, Germany street scene

    According to a new study by IHS Automotive and Groupe Futuribles, congestion will cause annual auto sales to be trimmed by 30 million vehicles annually by 2035.
