Rapes, Drugs and Murders Up: NYPD Focused on Subway “Pole Dancers”!

Published on: July 1, 2014

The underground acrobats who flip, somersault and pole-dance among New York City subway riders as trains roll are drawing a new audience — police officers.

The New York Police Department is cracking down on the subway showmen who use the tight quarters of the nation’s busiest transit system as moving stages for impromptu — and illegal — pass-the-hat performances. More than 240 people have been arrested on misdemeanors related to acrobatics so far this year, compared with fewer than 40 at this time a year ago.

Police Commissioner William Bratton acknowledges he is targeting subway acrobats as part of his embrace of the “broken windows” theory of policing — that low-grade lawlessness can cultivate a greater sense of disorder and embolden more dangerous offenders.

“Is it a significant crime? Certainly not,” Bratton said recently. But the question is, he added, “Does it have the potential both for creating a level of fear as well as a level of risk that you want to deal with?”

thumbVideo Shows Officer Forcing Professor To Ground After Being Stopped For Jaywalking

An Arizona State University English professor is claiming self-defense against a campus police officer who slammed her to the front of a police car last month.

Dr. Ersula Ore was walking near campus when she was stopped by an officer while crossing College Avenue near Fifth Street.

“The reason I’m talking to you right now is because you are walking in the middle of the street,” Officer Stewart Ferrin said in a video recording obtained by KTVK. “Let me see your ID or you will be arrested for failing to provide ID.”

“Are you serious?” Ore asked.

“Yes, I am serious. That is the law,” Ferrin replied.

The professor stated that she was trying to cross College Avenue like several other people around her in an attempt to avoid construction, a police report explained.

“I never once saw a single solitary individual get pulled over by a cop for walking across a street on a campus, in a campus location. Everybody has been doing this because it is all obstructed. That’s the reason why,” Ore told the officer. “But you stop me in the middle of the street to pull me over and ask me, ‘Do you know what this is? This is a street.’ ”

Ferrin asked her if she knew that it was street. Before Ore could finish her statement, he demanded that she put her hands behind her back.

“Don’t touch me,” Ore said. “Get your hands off me.”

CCRKBA Welcomes Police Group’s Support For Pro Gun Laws in Washington State

Published on: June 30, 2014

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today expressed gratitude for the important support of a key law enforcement organization for Initiative 591, backed by a coalition of gun rights supporters, of which CCRKBA is a member.

The Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs (WACOPS) announced it will back I-591 and oppose Initiative 594. With more than 4,500 members in police agencies across Washington State, WACOPS is the state’s oldest and most influential law enforcement organization representing rank-and-file police officers and sheriff’s deputies.

“This is a major decision by WACOPS,” noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “We’ve known I-591 had considerable support among line officers, and this makes it official. We also knew that street cops and deputies do not support the 18-page gun control measure being pushed by wealthy out-of-state and Seattle-area elitists.

“Support from WACOPS also proves that I-591 is not a scheme to eliminate background checks,” he continued. “Our measure only requires that such checks be done in accordance with a uniform national standard that is not confusing or contradictory to existing state and federal law, without creating a universal handgun registry.

“Most importantly,” Gottlieb said, “by opposing I-594, WACOPS members recognize that the gun control measure is not only excessive, it poses a burden on local agencies whose budgets are already stretched thin. Police and Sheriff’s departments don’t need to be handed an unfunded mandate crafted by gun prohibitionists with millions of dollars that could be better spent supporting education, training and responsible public safety programs.”

WACOPS is the second statewide law enforcement organization to support I-591. The Washington State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association also endorsed the measure, and voted to oppose I-594.

“The gun prohibition lobby pushing I-594 falsely claims to have the facts on their side,” Gottlieb noted. “They not only don’t have the facts on their side, they don’t have the cops on their side, either.”

Would you complain about your meal if the waitress serving the food was packing heat?

That’s exactly what you’ll find at Shooters Grill, the aptly named restaurant located in the town of Rifle, Colorado.

The family-run, American-style diner features wait staff who exercise their open-carry rights and invites customers to do the same.

Owner Lauren Boebert told TheBlaze that she didn’t necessarily set out to open a Second Amendment haven in Rifle. She’s just ”always carried,” so three days after they opened, she started carrying on the job. Within days, other staff asked if they could do the same.

Boebert said, “Of course.”

4 Things You Need to Know If the Police Try To Search Your Phone

In a rare unanimous Supreme Court decision yesterday, all nine Justices agreed that, yep, searching your phone without a warrant is indeed illegal. So if a police officer ever does try to dig through your digital dirt unlawfully, this is what you need to do.

The often controversial Chief Justice John Roberts summed the whole thing up with a few delightfully biting lines in the court’s decision:

The fact that technology now allows an individual to carry such information in his hand does not make the information any less worthy of the protection for which the Founders fought. Our answer to the question of what the police must do before searching a cell phone seized incident to an arrest is accordingly simple – get a warrant.

In other words, the law is on your side, and The Daily Dot put together a nice little primer on how to handle any unlawfully snooping cops. It all boils down to the following.

Anti-Gun Assemblywoman Gabriela Rosa pleads guilty to having a fake marriage, must resign immediately! (NY Democrat)

Gabriela Rosa, 47, also admitted to committing bankruptcy fraud and accepting an illegal campaign contribution of $1,000 from an unnamed “representative of a foreign government.” She is expected to face between 12 and 18 months in prison under the terms of the deal. But there’s no mandatory minimum, meaning a judge could let her off with probation.

A Dominican-born assemblywoman said “I do” to a man she didn’t love, entering a bogus marriage just to obtain citizenship.

Gabriela Rosa, 47, pleaded guilty in Manhattan Federal Court on Friday in a deal that required the Democrat to immediately resign from the Assembly.

“I married that person and it was not a real marriage,” Rosa told Judge Denise Cote. “I falsely got married with a U.S. citizen in order for me to regularize my immigration status and become a legal alien in this country.”

SCOPE received a request from Gunleaders to alert us of an action pending in Pennsylvania.

There is a bill that has been filed in PA seeking co-sponsors for general recognition/reciprocity. This alert is being sent to in neighboring States of PA. We are requesting that you immediately request that your members use the pre formatted message which will sent to all the PA Legislators who are possible co-sponsors.

The Attorney General is seeking to void reciprocity for non-resident licenses to carry in PA.

This is an extremely time sensitive matter and we ask that you attend to it as soon as possible.

Please use the link below to send this message:

Dear Pennsylvania General Assembly Member,

Over the last year the Pennsylvania Attorney General has been exploiting a loophole in the law and changing reciprocity agreements that affect the rights of both residents & non-residents of Pennsylvania. The actions of the AG in refusing to recognize certain permits or licenses from other states is disrupting my ability to protect myself and my loved ones.

The scandalous actions of the Pennsylvania Attorney General indicate a disdain for self-defense and the rule of law. This being my perception, I will not visit or take my family to a state that embraces policies that endanger my loved ones and refuses to recognize my right to protect myself & my family. There is a solution to this problem that I encourage you to support now. There is legislation about to be introduced that will alleviate the problem and close the bureaucratic loophole that the current AG is using. This legislation is viewable at: http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/Legis/CSM/showMemoPublic.cfm?chamber=H&SPick=20130&cosponId=14921

Make no mistake; you must act by co-sponsoring, supporting and driving to passage through both House and Senate and see it signed into law, or my family and I will avoid the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or any product coming from there. I will encourage my friends and acquaintances to do the same until or unless you correct this problem. I look forward to your support in this matter.

Sincerely,

thumbRelatives of criminal shot trying to hold up Waffle House demand ‘gun control’ (Video)

A Breitbart feature posted yesterday brings a story to the fore from an April/May Fox Carolina report that gun owners who may have missed it when it first came out ought to know about, if for no other reason than it provides a forehead-slapping insight into what passes for “gun control” advocacy.

“Nineteen-year-old Dante Williams’ family said there is no doubt he entered the Waffle House in Chesnee back in January of 2012 intent on robbing it, but they say he didn’t have to die,” the report, blogged but not explored in detail at the time on The War on Guns, began.

Bottom line, the deceased invaded the place with a gun and an accomplice, demanded money terrorized everyone in the place, and was taken out by a concealed carry permit holder in the type of defensive gun use situation head Bloomberg MILM Shannon Watts claims “never happens.”

The face of ‘gun control’: Murderer of own parents wants more guns banned

Published on: June 30, 2014

Joshua Cooke, currently serving a 40-year prison sentence for the brutal murder in 2003 of his adoptive parents, has become the “gun control” movement’s newest ambassador. His “reasoning” is that if not for the federal ban of so-called “assault weapons,” still in effect when he bought the shotgun he used in his butchery, he would have used an AR-15, and murdered far more people. From the Daily Mail:

‘If I had an assault weapon, things would have been much worse,’ Cooke told Piers Morgan Live [surprise, surprise] from his prison cell.

‘I thank God I didn’t have an AR-15 or some other type of assault weapon because the way I was back then mentally, I would have gone to the mall that night or to one of my old high schools the next morning and killed as many people as I possibly could,’ he said.

One could, of course, point out that even in 2003, nine years into the 1994 AWB, AR-15s in various configurations that did not meet the arbitrary definition of “assault weapons” were still easily available (as the Violence Policy Center never tired of wailing about), as were aftermarket attachments by which one could easily transform an erstwhile legal rifle into a banned, supposedly far “more deadly,” “assault weapon.”

NYPD Analyzing Consequences Of Decline In Stop-And-Frisk

Comments: No Comments
Published on: June 29, 2014

The NYPD is studying years of data to determine if the decline in stop-and-frisk is having an impact on crime in New York City.

Overall, crime in the city is down, but there has been an uptick in shootings in certain neighborhoods.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said Wednesday that the department will have a better idea about any connection after the analysis is completed in several weeks.

“Stop, question, and frisk by our officers is down dramatically,” Bratton said. “Our arrests number are staying as they have been so it’s a bit of a contradiction.”

He has previously said he didn’t believe there was a link between the drop in stops and an increase in shootings. Overall, stop-and-frisk numbers dropped last year from 533,000 to 194,000.

Bloomturd to Mail 2.5 Million Anti-Gun Postcards to Politicians (More Money Wasting!)

Tags: No Tags

Published on: June 29, 2014

Survivors of gun violence and gun control advocates plan to deliver around 2.5 million postcards to elected officials across the country next week to demand political action on the issue.

More than 625,000 people signed on to support the postcard campaign, initiated by the pro-gun control groups Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety in the days following the May 23 shooting near the University of California Santa Barbara.

Beginning Monday, the organizations plan to hand-deliver a postcard to each supporter’s U.S. House representative, two U.S. senators and governor – about 2.5 million postcards in all. The campaign will run throughout the week.

The postcards were inspired by Richard Martinez, the father of one of the six victims in the Santa Barbara attack, according to the gun control groups. The postcards will call for “not one more” shooting death. Martinez – whose impassioned plea made national headlines in the wake of the shooting – will personally deliver postcards to the local offices of politicians in Tennessee, Florida, Pennsylvania and Iowa.

The postcard delivery plans come amid several recent wins for gun control advocates. A federal court in Colorado upheld the state’s gun law as constitutional Thursday, which requires background checks on some private firearms sales and limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.

ATF Backs Down on southern border states Gun Sale Reports

Tags: No Tags
Comments: No Comments
Published on: June 29, 2014

For nearly three years, federally-licensed firearms dealers (“FFLs”) in southern border states have been badgered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (“ATF”) to report sales of two or more rifles to the same person during any consecutive five-day period. Purporting to need this information to stop arms trafficking in and out of Mexico, ATF issued so-called “demand letters” to require indefinite reporting of multiple rifle sales by thousands of dealers, treating the independent FFL businessmen as though they were government employees.

ATF has no authority to require these reports. Although the Gun Control Act of 1968 authorizes ATF to issue demand letters, these were to be issued only when ATF is investigating certain specific buyers or specific FFLs, and this is how they were used for many years. They were not designed to impose a new permanent reporting requirement on dealers.

Moreover, in the Gun Control Act, Congress decided to require reporting only of multiple handgun sales, but not rifle sales. However, instead of taking its case to Congress to change the law and enact legislation requiring reporting on rifle sales, ATF took the law into its own hands.

Comrade DeBlasio Inc. Removed New York “Stop and Frisk” Policy – Last Night At Least 13 Shot In 5 Boroughs

It was a violent night in New York City after at least 13 people were shot in incidents spanning each of the five boroughs.

As CBS 2′s Janelle Burrell reported, one of the shootings happened on Staten Island, where a man is fighting for his life after being shot in the face.

The incident happened at around 3:30 a.m. on Amboy Road in the New Dorp section of Staten Island. Police were still on the scene Sunday morning collecting and processing evidence, including a backpack that belonged to the 42-year-old victim.

[...] Neighbors also said the victim only moved to the area a few months ago with his wife and son.

“It’s a man and his wife and their son. They’re very quiet people. They just moved in not long ago. They’re very nice people,” neighbor Mike told WCBS 880′s Miller.

Mike was just returning home from the night shift, only to find his house was on the part of the street that was sectioned off by police.

The shooting incident is just one of 13 that happened across the city in the last 24 hours, WCBS 880 reported.

New Google ‘Dangerous Products or Services’ Policy Targets Protected Speech, Self-Defense

Tags: No Tags

Published on: June 28, 2014

Apparently, Google failed to use its own search engine product before announcing their new “Dangerous Products or Services” policy, which is slated to go into effect “around September [of 2014].”

Under the policy’s “Guns and Parts” guidelines, ads that are or “appear to be” promoting “[f]unctional devices that appear to discharge a projectile at high velocity, whether for sport, self-defense, or combat” would be banned. The consequence for showing-off your Constitutionally-protected goods? “Disapproval and [account] suspension.”

But, unfortunately, it gets worse. Not only is the Google ban-hammer going to be swung at [actual] firearms and firearm parts (including “[a]ny part or component that’s necessary to the function of a gun or intended for attachment to a gun” such as–but presumably not limited to–”[g]un scopes, ammunition, ammunition clips or belts”), it’s also a Google no-no to advertise training aides like “airsoft guns, paintball guns,” and yes, even the dreaded favorite of hardened criminals, “bb guns.” One wonders if Google’s policy-makers watched ‘A Christmas Story‘ one too many times as a kid.

But Google’s policy isn’t entirely devoid of humor. They’re also going to ban–gasp–”dangerous knives” that “are designed or promoted as products that can be used to injure an opponent in sport, self-defense, or combat,” as well as [a]ny knife design that provides a confrontational advantage.” Shoot (pun intended), I feel safer already.

What Does Noel Canning Have To Do With The Second Amendment?

Published on: June 28, 2014

In the course of reviewing the Supreme Court’s latest decisions, one article I found to be particularly intriguing is law professor William Baude’s “Symposium: What divides the Court, and what unites it.” While the NLRB v. Noel Canning decision turned on a Constitutional analysis of presidential authority and executive over-reach (regarding recess appointments), what struck me about the case was how differently the Court’s two opinions (concurring in judgment) reached their respective conclusions.

What does Noel Canning have to do with Second Amendment analysis and jurisprudence? Perhaps nothing at all, but consider first Professor Baude’s commentary:

“Stepping back from the question of interpretive methodology and into a narrower role as critic, I cannot resist making two other observations about the awkwardness of the majority opinion.

First, because Justice Breyer rejects the textual/original limits on the recess appointment power, he is forced to come up with some other dividing line to explain when a break is too short to count as a constitutional recess. (Almost everybody agrees that it would be absurd to read the Constitution in a way that let presidents make appointments in the middle of the night, or even over a weekend). He comes up with two: “A 3-day recess would be too short.” That is a hard limit, with no apparent exceptions. But then there is a second limit: “a recess of more than 3 days but less than 10 days is presumptively too short” but maybe “some very unusual circumstance– a national catastrophe, for instance” could justify an exception.

Since the majority has fought its way free from the text, these numbers are fairly arbitrary. The three-day limit has the virtue of matching the three-day requirement in the Adjournments Clause (which limits the Senate’s ability to adjourn without House consent), but it is not at all clear why the Adjournments Clause applies to the Recess Appointments Clause. The real virtue of the number three, from the executive’s point of view, is that it is the shortest plausible number that allows them to solve “the nights and weekends problem,” which is likely why the Solicitor General conceded it at argument.

The ten-day limit is derived from “historical practice,” and therefore from the accident of when the case happens to have been brought. As Michael Rappaport has chronicled, the executive branch has made recess appointments during shorter and shorter periods as time goes on. Had the Court decided the case decades earlier, it might have picked a bigger number. Had it decided the case decades later, it might have picked a smaller one. Either way, the Supreme Court’s imposition of a ten-day limit has a whiff of magic. (Why not, say, fourteen days? Or thirty or sixty, as Professor Rappaport has suggested?)” (Emphasis added.)

Now, consider for a moment how the majority’s analysis might be applied to, e.g., firearm magazine limits.

In spite of significant historical evidence to the contrary, both the Northern District of California and District of Colorado federal courts have found that arbitrary limits on magazine capacity do not violate the Second Amendment. (See, e.g., Br. Amicus Curiae of Pink Pistols In Support Of Plaintiffs’ Motion For Preliminary Injunction at 7 n.7, San Francisco Veteran Police Officers Ass’n v. San Francisco, No. 13-CV-05351WHA (N.D. Cal. Jan. 15, 2014) (discussing historical prevalence of large-capacity magazines; “the 1896 Mauser C/96 could accept a detachable 20-round box magazine, the famous 1908 Luger could accept a detachable 32-round magazine, and the Browning High-Power pistol designed in 1926 came standard with a 13-round magazine.”).
