With Somali terrorists threatening this past weekend to attack the Mall of America, the nation’s largest mall, the debate over allowing citizens to defend themselves has heated up again.

Gun control advocates just can’t accept the fact that concealed handgun permit holders are incredibly law-abiding. The New York Times’ recent attack on permit holders is typical. It is filled with triple-counting of legitimate self-defense cases. Murders or suicides by permit holders are blamed on guns, even when no gun was involved. In point of fact, permit holders are incredibly law-abiding. Some new evidence puts things in perspective.

Anti-gun Bigotry? There’s an App for That

Published on: March 1, 2015

In a story we first reported on in 2013, the makers of a cellphone application that purports to alert its users to the location of “dangerous guns and owners” continue to push the product. A 2015 version of the program developed at a lab run by the University of California San Diego is now in beta testing. Rather than provide any real service to its users, the Gun Geo Marker Mark 1 App appears to be little more than a thinly-veiled means to harass, and violate the privacy of, gun owners.

The app works by allowing users to anonymously tag locations on a map where they have a “gun related safety concern,” and allows them to comment on the nature of this concern. Other users are then able to see these tagged locations. Just what the utility of this is information is supposed to be is unclear.

The makers have included several categories to cite when tagging an unsafe location. Many of these categories involve behavior that is already illegal, such as “frequent unlawful discharge,” and “illegal firearms.” In these instances, a person with credible and specific information could simply use the cell phone to call the police with it. Where people don’t have substantial and verifiable information, the app would nevertheless encourage them to make unanswerable, anonymous accusations against others in their community.

Other categories, moreover, are based on entirely subjective determinations, allowing for postings based wholly on ignorance, speculation, or bad faith. These include “unlocked/loaded/unsafe storage,” and “insufficient safety or training.” The developers’ description of the latter category states, “First time gun owners or others who may not have not taken basic gun safety training, or who were not raised in a culture of gun safety, might use guns in an unsafe way at certain locations that might be worth marking.”

Despite the obvious concerns the app raises, the project’s website provides a considerable amount of high-handed lip service regarding the app’s positive gun rights implications. In an F.A.Q. section the developers insist, “Brett Stalbaum, the primary project developer is a gun owner and pro second amendment activist.” Of course, arch gun control sugar daddy Michael Bloomberg said the same thing himself.

As we have seen, people with an irrational fear of, or hatred for, guns and their owners will go to considerable lengths to publicize these feelings. Kimberly Edson of Savage, Minn., posted a sign on her front lawn featuring a surreptitiously taken photograph of a man who lawfully carries a firearm while dropping his child off for school each morning. The picture is accompanied by the caption: “This man carries a loaded gun around your children every day.” Some newspapers have proposed searchable lists of gun license and Right-to-Carry permit holders. In 2012, The Journal News posted a map of pistol license holders in the Lower Hudson Valley.

Indeed, in the “privacy policy” section of their website, Gun Geo Marker’s developers appear to be aware of their app’s potential for abuse. While claiming to stand on the First Amendment, they also detail “privacy” features designed to protect those who leave tags from being served with a “subpoena.”

Of course, libel and other forms of defamation are not protected by the First Amendment, and the privacy features designed by the developers could just as easily protect false and malicious taggers.

That a number of people at a university would take the time and effort to develop a digital platform specifically to spread anonymous, unverified gossip about their gun owning neighbors is a pretty good indication of the pettiness and desperation to which the anti-gun movement has sunk. We’d like to say we expect better, but we’ll let their actions speak for themselves.

“I Built an AR-15 in My Kitchen” By Kyle Mizokami

Published on: March 1, 2015

I built a semi-automatic rifle in my kitchen. I’ll bet that’s one sentence you’d never thought you’d hear. Neither did I, until the day I decided to do it.

The job required drilling aluminum, and tiny shards and slivers of metal were going to fly everywhere. It’s not something you want to do over carpet, so I decided to do it in my kitchen.

Did it work? Hell yes, it did. After three hours of work with light tools, I had built the essential component of an AR-15 rifle. America has now reached a point where people can construct modern weapons in their kitchens.

Is this awesome, crazy—or both?

The senator behind the Assault Weapons Ban bill and a House Republican have teamed up for new gun-control legislation — to ban terrorists from buying guns.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) introduced the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015 in the upper chamber with co-sponsor Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.).

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, introduced the bill in the lower chamber with 14 co-sponsors, Feinstein’s office said.

How gun control is causing another European Holocaust

When Adolph Hitler got into power, he confiscated all the guns owned by Jewish people. Then, once they were defenseless, he sent them all to concentration camps. Now, in 2015, Jews are being slaughtered again because of their religion. And because of strict gun control laws in Europe, they are once again defenseless.

Here in Denmark, handguns and semiautomatic rifles are all but banned. Hunting rifles are legally available only to those with squeaky-clean backgrounds who have passed a rigorous exam covering everything from gun safety to the mating habits of Denmark’s wildlife.

“There’s a book about 1,000 pages thick,” said Tonni Rigby, one of only two licensed firearms dealers in Copenhagen. “You have to know all of it.”

Brooklyn DA treats detectives like personal errand boys

Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson orders detectives on his security detail to pick up his meals and dry cleaning and do other menial chores — and if they refuse, they’re assigned to dead-end cases, current and former law-enforcement sources charge.

Thompson has already reassigned 15 members from the detail, which consists mostly of DA Squad investigators — a team of highly skilled detectives, many former NYPD, who would normally probe organized crime, narcotics, cold-case homicides and other vital cases, sources told The Post.

But many of these gumshoes were put on Thompson’s personal security squad, including an ­“advance team” that scopes out venues before the Democratic district attorney arrives.

Top U.S. Army Marksman Explains Why Gun Nuts Shoot Better

Master Sgt. Scott Satterlee is really good at shooting things. He’s a member of the U.S. Army’s elite 1st Special Forces Group based at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state. He’s also a nationally ranked competitive precision rifle shooter—and one of the military’s best marksmen.

You wouldn’t guess any of this if you met him. Satterlee is soft-spoken and humble—to the point of almost being self-deprecating. Though confident in his abilities, he doesn’t brag.

Recent hit films such as Zero Dark Thirty, Lone Survivor and American Sniper have put America’s special operations community in the spotlight like never before. It’s an odd turn of events for a community often called “the silent professionals.”

Satterlee says he ordinarily wouldn’t talk to a reporter. But another soldier encouraged him to share his story.

Al Sharpton is all about the Benjamins, a daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner claims in a bombshell videotape.

Erica Snipes tees off on the reverend as interested primarily in money during a conversation secretly recorded by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe’s group, Project Veritas.

One of O’Keefe’s investigators with a hidden camera posed as a Garner supporter during a protest last month at the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island.

Palm Beach County, Florida – Journalists at the DC Post were looking through message boards that are frequented by law enforcement officers, when they found a post where one officer was causally talking about planting evidence on “mouthy drivers” and “street lawyers.”

The Post then contacted the officer and conducted an anonymous interview with him where he revealed his disturbing perspective.

The officer revealed the illegal and unethical actions that he is proud of taking on the job. The DC Post has also said that they have verified the officer’s position with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, and they have verified many of the claims that he has made.

Does our constitution not give us the individual freedom to speak out against the things we do not agree with? Does it not give us the right to speak out against our government and demand better from our elected officials or to stand in defiance of terrorism and illegal immigration among many other things that a true American Patriot would?

Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and/or “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents. And remember, technically if you are considered a ‘terrorist’, you have NO RIGHTS! You can click on the clink for each point to see the source.

WaPo: Europe Proves Expanded Background Checks Useless

While Democrats, Gabby Giffords, and groups like Moms Demand Action claim that expanding background checks would end mass shootings, The Washington Post looks across the pond and demonstrates that Europe’s expanded background checks prove useless in the face of a booming black market for guns and radicalized Muslims looking to commit terrorist acts.

After all, Europe has expanded background checks and enacted near-total gun bans in certain countries, but the Paris and Copenhagen attacks still took place.

According to WaPo, in Denmark “handguns and semiautomatic rifles are all but banned.” And hunting rifles can only be owned by people “with squeaky-clean backgrounds who have passed a rigorous exam covering everything from gun safety to the mating habits of Denmark’s wildlife.”

“I don’t need that karate crap! I’ve got Glock Fu!”

We’ve all heard the bluster-filled bullshit of the fat slob at the range, as he locks into his piss-poor imitation of a svelte, circa 1979 Jeff Cooper shooting stance, with his custom 1911A1, and proceeds to practice his “defensive shooting” with slow, aimed fire at 21 feet. 50 rounds later, he has displayed an exemplary lack of understanding of what the Colonel was actually teaching, as well as what the fuck actual interpersonal violence looks like…but hey, at least he has a decent group (hopefully), since “speed is fine, but accuracy is final!”

You would think, with the prevalence of high-quality, relatively inexpensive training available in this country, from instructors, trainers, and teachers who have “been there, done that,” that we’d be past the nonsense by now. Outside of the cognitive bias of Dunning-Kruger, there is no reason that anyone with the foresight to carry a defensive firearm in America today, cannot get solid, legitimate training in the application of that weapon in the anti-personnel role. Whether you’re a cop, a prepper, or just a concerned citizen, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR NOT TRAINING EFFECTIVELY.
