Declaration of Independence with Gun View More: Previews News|60 Minutes News|Live News|More News Videos This is an astounding story! I don't mean the content because that is just common sense: of course an armed person who is at the scene will be more effective than police who are not present. But I'm amazed that the police chief of DC endorsed this position. The Concealed Nation blog reports, "DC Police Chief Changes Tone; Citizens Should Be Prepared For Active Shooters And Terrorist Attacks."

California Stabber Manifesto: Behead Someone, Praise Allah

mercedStabber But religion and terrorism had nothing to do with it. That's according to law enforcement officials in Merced, California, following this week's stabbing of four people at UC Merced. The story behind the stabbings is that student Faisal Mohammad wanted revenge for being thrown out of a study group, so he made a list of people to kill and managed to wound four before police shot him to death. Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke insists that there is nothing to indicate the attacks were anything Read more [...] Continue reading →

The committee is investigating allegations that the IRS targeted conservative non-profit organizations with the words "tea party" and "constitution" in their names for additional scrutiny.

Those in law enforcement are up in arms about this move to protect the rights of the people. From The Times Free Press A 2010 Read more [...] Continue reading →

Ohio Lawmakers Might Protect People from Asset Forfeiture

civil forfeiture A bill has been introduced that would take away asset forfeiture from state police and block them from working with the Feds. One problem with asset forfeiture is that, even when a state limits the police from stealing from people, they can still work with some federal law enforcement agency. When they do so, the Feds can perpetrate asset forfeiture and then share the plunder with the local law enforcement organization that is working with them. Ohio might take action to eliminate it all. The Read more [...] Continue reading →

For How Long will Towns Subsidize Candidates?

hillary oligarchy One local police force has refused to accept that it has the duty to subsidize candidates when they come and campaign. We already know that Hillary Clinton demands rock-star-level treatment when she is hired as a speaker. (Sadly, her behavior is imitated by at least one Republican). However, it is one thing to demand luxuries from people who voluntarily agree to pay you to speak at their event. It is quite another to visit a location in order to campaign for an office that you wish to hold Read more [...] Continue reading →

When Zero Tolerance Is Gun Control on Steroids: What Happens When ALL Self-Defense is Illegal?

bullying race Zero tolerance means that one person rescuing another person from violence might be prosecuted as a crime some day. While there are times when one wishes for more police accountability, many other times they are the most sensible of public employees. In fact, they can often use common sense when others refuse to do so. A recent instance of this occurred when a teen began attacking a legally blind kid by punching him. Another teen intervened by punching the bully and knocking him to the ground. According Read more [...] Continue reading →
