Get angry, New York.

In a rousing speech made one day after the bust of state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara urged state residents to voice their outrage over the “cauldron of corruption” that is Albany.

“People need to demand more,” Bharara said Friday, addressing 350 students, faculty and invited dignitaries at an event hosted by the Center for New York City Law at New York Law School.

“It’s not just enough to be fed up,” the prosecutor told the overflow crowd, which included former Mayor David Dinkins, former mayoral candidate and MTA chairman Joe Lhota and city Special Commissioner of Investigation Richard Condon.

In a nearly forgotten controversy David Gregory, then host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” appeared on TV waving a 30-round ammunition magazine from the network’s District of Columbia studio.

Gregory was aggressively interviewing the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre in December 2012, asking if it might be a good idea to ban the high-capacity magazines.

His prop, ironically, violated a District of Columbia law making it illegal to possess an ammunition magazine – even an empty one – that holds more than 10 bullets.

Gregory was never arrested or charged with the crime, which carries up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000, but an affidavit released Friday shows that’s exactly what local police recommended.

Alone and Defenseless: A UK Citizen’s call for arms

This is where we find ourselves now. Every citizen in Europe and the UK faces the risk of an Islamic attack merely while going about normal day-to-day business. UK citizens in particular face this risk whilst being denied weapons of self defense. In the past I have fully and enthusiastically supported the UK’s complete ban on hand guns. But immediately after the killing of Lee Rigby I began to reconsider the wisdom of that ban and I now utterly oppose it. As things stand in the UK, hand guns are illegal. For those shotguns you could own, extremely strict licensing specifically disallows self defense as a motive for ownership and so the old adage “In countries where guns are illegal, only the criminals have guns” is the frankly mad situation we now have in the UK.

Sheldon Silver, the longtime speaker of the New York state Assembly, is expected to be arrested on corruption charges by federal authorities on Thursday after prosecutors subpoenaed records in a probe of undocumented payments he received from a law firm, sources said.

Silver, a Manhattan Democrat who has served as speaker for more than 20 years, is expected to be charged following an investigation sparked when Gov. Cuomo abruptly shut down an anticorruption commission he had created in 2013, sources said.

Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against the officer, Darren Wilson. But it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation.

This wreath won’t be an olive branch.

The Rev. Al Sharpton will mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day by placing a garland on the Brooklyn street site where two NYPD officers were executed — but the floral gesture drew fire from a police union head, who called the move an insincere “media grab.”

“If Mr. Sharpton was sincere (about honoring Officers Ramos and Liu by laying a wreath at the site of their assassination), he would not have made it public,” said Lieutenants’ Benevolent Association President Louis Turco.

New York Sheriff On Handgun Renewal Permits, ‘Throw Them In The Garbage’

Enter Sheriff Thomas Lorey. Lorey has been a lawman in the county in one form or other for nearly 45 years. Before becoming a police officer he was a Navy man. Somewhere in-between he became an “Oath Keeper.” Oath Keepers are former military and law enforcement/first responders who still pledge to, “Defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Lorey is intending to uphold his oath against those Second Amendment hating politicians in the state capitol.

In a video posted on Friday, this is how Lorey opened his remarks to a small group of concerned citizens, “We’re starting this fight, this fight is going to be a long and difficult fight. The government and Andrew Cuomo are dragging us into a pit. These are the folks (present meeting attendees) that are going to drag us out of the pit because I think this war is going to last that long.”

When witnesses in the same building as Charlie Hebdo saw masked men with heavy weaponry enter the building they called police, like anyone in their position would do. But the three unarmed officers on bikes who showed up proved to be most unhelpful in the situation.

According to the witness, the officers had to retreat after seeing the men were heavily armed.

That wasn’t the only instance during the three-day terror spree where police found themselves utterly unprepared to take on the jihadists.

Oklahoma Police Chief Shot During An Apparent SWATting Raid; Homeowner Won’t Be Charged

We’re very thankful that Dallas Horton is a good shot and kept all his shots center mass where Chief Ross’s bullet-resistant vest was able to absorb the majority of the damage from Horton’s bullets. We’re also very thankful for the professionalism of the Washita County Sheriff’s deputies, who kept their cool and did not unload on Horton and allowed him to surrender in what must have been an incredibly tense situation where an officer was shot just seconds before.

Hopefully Chief Ross will fully recover from his wounds and be back on duty shortly with no long-term physical or psychological damage, and we hope that the Horton family fully recovers from the trauma as well.

As for you, Mr. SWATter… we hope that the authorities catch you, and send you to prison for a very long time.

A corrections officers’ union is suing to stop the online publication of the names and addresses of New York state pistol permit holders.

The New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association filed the action on Jan. 6 in Albany County Supreme Court against Alan Munn, who owns the website Paladium.net.

The union also sued Host Europe GmbH, the site’s internet service provider.

The officers are seeking the removal of the entire website, specifically the section called “New York State Pistol Permit 2010 Database.”

The New Tactical Reality (Learning Points from Paris Attack)

With all political, free speech and moral issues stripped aside, what are the learning points from the Paris terror attacks?

It’s a pretty straightforward question, isn’t it?

First, let’s look at this analysis from Stratfor Global Intelligence:

Such attacks will continue in the West as long as jihadism survives as an ideology. They will be limited in scope but intended to cause terrorist theater that spills well beyond the limits of the attack to create vicarious victims. Because of this continuing threat, citizens should practice appropriate situational awareness and be prepared to properly respond to danger.

Read the whole thing, of course. It follows a number of think tank analyses (most notably, Rand) on the shifting nature of terrorism. This story from Reuters sums it up pretty well:

In this age of the lightly-resourced, self-starting urban guerrilla, the jihadists have discovered a formula that lends a chilling new dimension to their trade. Not only can anyone be a victim, but with such a low bar to entry, anyone might be a perpetrator too. The brothers who shot dead 12 people at the satirical weekly newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, planned their killing spree in plain sight.

Add to this the high drama that Mumbai – and Paris-style attacks generate — televised scenes of manhunts, special forces and sieges — and they begin to look like an even more attractive force-multiplier.

As I mentioned in my previous post, we as Americans are having a very hard time understanding this new model…why would anyone not want a 55-inch curved screen television, unlimited Internet access and a 57 different brands of toothpaste?

The owner of a New Jersey deli shot and killed a man who police say was attempting to rob the store at gunpoint. New Jersey has made it almost impossible for law abiding citizens to own guns and concealed weapons permits are nearly impossible to acquire. Thugs in the state are not expecting an armed response and for this would be criminal, it will be his last attempt.

…In the audio recordings, a regional manager is heard citing regulations handed down from the National Credit Union Administration, which regulates, charters and supervises more than 95 million account holders in federal and state-chartered credit unions.

The Heritage Credit Union regional manager told Schuetz:

“Examiners from NCUA [the National Credit Union Administration] came in and looked at our accounts … looked at our books. Here’s some accounts that we feel that we’re going to regulate you on … and kinda put the screws to us as far as what we could and couldn’t do. The regulatory and compliance issues that we said earlier are true. We never used to have to do that stuff.”

Another Bloomberg Gun Control Lackey Faces Jail Time (Democrat PA AG)

It seems that Michael Bloomberg should have focused more on the illegal politicians he has supported over the years rather than the “illegal” guns he purports to be against. Following a long line of criminals who have been allies of Michael Bloomberg, the Attorney General of Pennsylvania, Kathleen Kane, may soon find her name along these other “distinguished” politicians who are ardent supporters of Michael Bloomberg and vice versa.

Full disclosure: Kathleen Kane has been on my crap list since day one. I knew that she was getting her marching orders from Michael Bloomberg and she has exercised her authority as AG to make it ever more difficult for gun owners in Pennsylvania. She started out by trashing reciprocity agreements with other states. She also refuses to work on any new agreements so the ability of Pennsylvanians to travel with their 2nd Amendment rights intact is being curtailed by her directly.

The New York City Police Department and other law enforcement agencies have been alerted to a new threat raised by the Islamic State terror group. The jihadist entity released a new video on Saturday urging fellow jihadists to “rise up” against the U.S. and other Western states.

ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al Adnani told those loyal to the Islamic State to “rise up and kill intelligence officers, police officers, soldiers, and civilians” in the U.S., Canada, France, and Australia. “Do not let the battle pass you by wherever you may be. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents,” Adnani added. He suggested that if his holy warriors did not have an explosive device or a firing weapon, they should instead “smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car.”
