Newport News police are investigating after a man reported he was pushed to the ground and had his handgun stolen late last week.

Officers responded to a report of the robbery in the 6000 block of Jefferson Avenue just before 8 p.m. Jan. 29, according to police spokesman Harold Eley.

The victim, a 37-year-old Hampton man, told police he was robbed as he walked across Jefferson Avenue to the lot at the Windsor House after visiting a friend at the Travelers Inn. He was wearing his handgun in a holster, open carry, on his hip, Eley said.

How to Develop the Situational Awareness of Jason Bourne

There’s a scene at the beginning of The Bourne Identity where the film’s protagonist is sitting in a diner, trying to figure out who he is and why he has a bunch of passports and a gun stashed in a safety deposit box. Bourne also notices that he, well, notices things that other people don’t. Watch:

That superhuman ability to observe his surroundings and make detailed assessments about his environment? It’s not just a trait of top secret operatives; it’s a skill known as situational awareness, and you can possess it too.

As the names implies, situational awareness is simply knowing what’s going on around you. It sounds easy in principle, but in reality requires much practice. And while it is taught to soldiers, law enforcement officers, and yes, government-trained assassins, it’s an important skill for civilians to learn as well. In a dangerous situation, being aware of a threat even seconds before everyone else can keep you and your loved ones safe.

But it’s also a skill that can and should be developed for reasons outside of personal defense and safety. Situational awareness is really just another word for mindfulness, and developing mine has made me more cognizant of what’s going on around me and more present in my daily activities, which in turn has helped me make better decisions in all aspects of my life.

Mark Fuhrman: Ignore Gun-Free Zones (Entering unarmed areas gives terrorists, criminals the upper hand)

With terrorists and other shooters on the lookout for “soft targets,” former Los Angeles police detective Mark Fuhrman urged gun owners on Friday to ignore rules prohibiting firearms.

Fuhrman said on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that businesses and other locations that ban guns usually do not have metal detectors.

“Stop playing by the rules,” he said. “Do what you feel in your heart of hearts. You keep your gun. You take it with you.”

Fuhrman’s advice comes as the nation reels from the latest mass shooting, in which a California couple killed 14 people and injured 21 at an office Christmas party on Wednesday. The couple, Syed Rizwan Farook, and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, both died in a shootout with police after they opened fire on innocent Americans going about their day. Officials now say that Malik had pledged allegiance on Facebook to the leader of ISIS.

Fuhrman blasted the reluctance of the Obama administration and the media to acknowledge that radical Islamist beliefs almost certainly motivated the shooting.

“With the attitude in the White House, the only thing they probably should be doing is ordering up body bags,” said Fuhrman. “Because terrorists are seeing that a country is laying down and playing dead.”

7 Reasons You Should Buy a Gun After San Bernardino

DeathWish

You should buy a gun. You should learn how to use it. You should buy sufficient ammunition. You should get a license to carry, if you can.

You should do all of that now.

You should do it not just because President Obama and his administration are hell-bent on implementing some form of worse-than-useless gun control in the aftermath of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California on Wednesday. You should buy a gun because the government cannot keep you safe. You should buy a gun because the government may in fact attempt to disarm you in violation of your Constitutional rights. You should buy a gun because the media will lie to you about the government’s ability to keep you safe.

That is the takeaway message from this week’s spate of events.

Here’s why.

Suicide Bomber? Better Make it a Head Shot!

Both cops and armed citizens need to be aware of the fact that if we choose to take a shot against a terrorist wearing a bomb vest or belt, we should alter our traditional target areas. If we shoot for the body, we will likely create the very type of explosion we seek to avoid.

Head shots are required. Rifles offer the best accuracy for shooting small targets like the head and should be close at hand whenever possible. Does your training include head shot sized targets at distances beyond 100 yards?

Does your gear meet the test? With a quality rifle, optic, and ammunition, we easily obtain 4 inch groups at 200 yards.

Simple Traffic Stop Quickly Escalates When Driver Informs Officer of Concealed Carry Permit

Alonza Gonzalez was pulled over by a police officer in Rosenberg, Texas, in August for a seemingly minor traffic violation — but the interaction ended with the man in handcuffs. Newly released dash cam video, obtained by Gonzalez through a public records request, provides new context on the incident.

Gonzalez claims he was unfairly targeted because he was carrying a gun.

The traffic stop began routine enough. Rosenberg officer Sgt. Anthony Schnacky asked Gonzalez for his license and insurance.

“Yeah, what’s the reason you stopped me?” Gonzalez asked.

“I’ll tell you in just a minute,” the officer replied.

But when Gonzalez informed Sgt. Schnacky that he was legally carrying a concealed firearm, the tone of the situation shifted dramatically.

Why Masculinity Matters – Now, But Especially During the Collapse

This three-minute video of a bunch of modern wussy males illustrates perfectly what most “enlightened” Americans think in our feminized culture: there should be no differences between men and women.

I strongly disagree for two reasons. One is life-or-death. One is quality of life. Those are pretty big deals.

First, the life-and-death reason. When the Collapse hits, trying to pretend men and women are not different will get people KILLED and RAPED. All those feminized males out there will assume the gangs roaming around freely (because the cops are gone) will treat women with the same respect the hipsters have for women. Wrong. Deadly and tragically wrong.

How can “smart” people like the well educated hipsters be so wrong? Easy. All these upper-income, sheltered, weak males have no idea what bad people are like – they’ve never met any in their nice subdivisions or hip urban apartments. Worse yet, these brainwashed wusses actually think the only bad male behavior in the entire world is done by “rednecks.” Like in the (icky, icky) South. The feminized males think the only thing keeping women down is traditional American male values. (Traditional men are actually great for women, but that’s a long blog post for another day.)

Known as NSA_Listbot on Reddit, this guy clearly takes his projects seriously, and gets into all the nitty-gritty details of his inadvisable but super awesome weapon in a long post on Imgur. Unlike a coilgun or gauss rifle which use a series of electromagnets to pull a magnetic projectile down a tube at great speeds, a railgun operates on more complicated physics, but doesn’t require its projectiles to be magnetic. What NSA_Listbot’s got here is the same thing the Navy is building, but on a much smaller scale.

A lot of folks mentioned the fact that it took quite a few rounds to bring the guy down. Sometimes that happens in a gunfight. At one point, the terrorist went down and then came back up to throw the knife. That sometimes happens too. Suspects who have been shot often collapse because they have a drop in blood pressure. Not enough blood is making it to the brain, so they become unconscious. As soon as the suspect falls and hits the ground, the heart doesn’t have to pump so hard to fight gravity. Blood flow returns to the brain and suddenly, the suspect is conscious and fighting again. Expect that to happen any time you are involved in a shooting.

Shooting With Gas Masks
Well this is awkward… I purchased this NBC mask before the EBOLA panic just for this article. Well then…

So you are looking for some protection from nuclear, biological, and chemical agents? The surplus mask market is littered with surplus masks. Some of these masks are old, outdated designs with very few places to obtain new filter elements. You want a mask with easily obtainable filters, and one that has a few features in place to make your time in the mask a little bit less… confined.

What does this officer involved shooting teach LEO and CCW alike?

1. In the moment of need, the old saying goes that you will not rise to the occasion but fall to the level of your training. Usually, you’ll fall to the level of your WORST DAY in training. That means you want to train hard, train regularly, and make no excuses (to paraphrase one of my martial arts mentors, Skip Hancock) so that your worst day is good enough for the fight you’re in. These officers were ready for the fight and in the moment of need there was no hesitation. That’s what it takes.
