Black Carjacking Hero of Chicago

from the American Thinker:

Media Lining Up to Defend Black Teen Shot in Carjacking, Attempted Murder

What’s it like to feel powerless?

A lieutenant in the Chicago Fire Department may find out.  The fireman committed the grave sin of defending himself and his property from an aggressor.  Now he is the target of a social media campaign to ex post facto punish him for having the audacity to protect what is rightfully his.

Last summer, the unidentified firefighter left his Jeep idling on the West Side of the city (admittedly, not a bright thing to do anywhere in Chicago) when it was carjacked by 17-year-old Charles Macklin.

Video Podcast – School Shootings and the Active Shooter Game

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Funny thing about school shootings. No I don’t mean they’re funny. I mean it’s odd that they used to be called mass-shootings, and not too long ago. I discuss why I believe this is so.

I also discuss the thankfully now-defunked “Active Shooter” online video game and just how evil must one be to come up with such a thing. read more

Even Statues of Guns are Scary to the Left

from NRA ILA:

Anti-gun Political Correctness Imperils Monument to Medal of Honor Recipient

As difficult as it may seem, anti-gun tactics have reached a pathetic new low. We regret to report that some on the anti-gun left, in their fanatical intolerance of all things firearms, now find it acceptable to attack monuments honoring World War II Medal of Honor recipients.

Grand Island, N.Y. is home to Charles N. DeGlopper Memorial Park. The memorial honors the city’s hometown hero, who posthumously received the Medal of Honor for his valor during the invasion of Normandy. read more

Yesterday the HuffPo continued its assault (pardon the pun) on guns by pretending to be reasonable. Something new for the Huffington Post. But it wasn’t really reasonable. It was just a veiled attempt of the unreasonable to sound reasonable.

The article ,posted as a result of the Santa Fe school murders, is entitled, “Texans On Both Sides Of Gun Debate Agree On Safe Storage, But Not On How To Support It.”

They write that the 17 year old took “his father’s pump-action shotgun and .38 revolver, concealed them under a trench coat and walked into an art class before opening fire on students, teachers and a responding school resource officer.”

They added that, “…people from across the political spectrum have stressed the importance of securing firearms to keep minors and others from getting ahold of them without permission,” and that, “If you’re a parent and you own guns, lock your guns safely away,” Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a staunch pro-gun Republican, said at a press conference on Friday. “It’s a serious issue and one big step we can take.” read more

Groundswell for Gun Confiscation Starts Here

from The Blaze:

‘I now actually do want to take your guns. All of your guns. Right now,’ magazine editor declares

Esquire’s editor-at-large penned a letter of sorts to the National Rifle Association and blasted the organization in the wake of the Santa Fe High School massacre in Texas.

In his Friday piece for the magazine, Dave Holmes accused the NRA of having “bought our government” and convincing its “members that the occasional school shooting, the odd literal slaughter of innocents, is an unfortunate but inevitable quirk of American life, a thing that is necessary to preserve freedom.” read more

Ollie to Head up the NRA

Oliver North has made a career, post military, of irking liberals. Now, as if he couldn’t get more loathsome to leftists, he accepts the position of the next NRA president. Hooray for Ollie and good on the NRA!

from the Blaze:

Oliver North picked to be next NRA president

Retired Marine Lt. Col. and Fox News Contributor Oliver North has been named the next president of the National Rifle Association. He is expected to step down from Fox and take the new post within a matter of weeks. read more

Podcast – Let’s Talk John Kerry, the Logan Act, and Dick’s Sporting Goods

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

By secretly and subversively negotiating with the terrorist nation of Iran, John Kerry is in clear violation of the Logan Act. Yet unlike many of Trump’s former associates, the FBI, Justice Department, the NSA and others don’t appear to wish to lift a finger to investigate or stop him. We are witnessing the unequal application of the law – again.

Gun manufacturer, Springfield Armory, announced it has severed ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods over their stance on guns, gun control and the Second Amendment. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the nation’s largest firearms trade association, has also, by unanimous vote, expelled Dick’s from membership in the organization. Good for both for taking a stand. read more

Another Waffle House Shooting Thwarted

from One News Now:

Armed La. Waffle House hero the media ignored

Not fitting in with its anti-gun narrative, the mainstream media has avoided coverage of an armed patron who shot two armed men robbing a Louisiana Waffle House late last week, putting one in the hospital – no other injuries were sustained.

This comes in stark contrast to the Tennessee Waffle House shooting coverage that has emblazoned the headlines of virtually every news hub across the nation, with most reports highlighting the fact that the hero thwarted the attack without a gun – after the gunman had already fatally shot four patrons.

Bumbling Broward County could have Saved Lives but did Nothing

Finally – a Broward County Florida student who is actually interested in the truth.

from The Blaze:

Broward student publishes damning evidence proving Broward school officials neglected school safety

Broward County student journalist Kenneth Preston published the findings of an in-depth investigation on Thursday that uncovered damning evidence proving Broward County school officials slacked on school security in the years leading up to the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14.

The findings also refute the mainstream media’s claim that firearms, specifically the AR-15, are to blame for the massacre.

What did Preston uncover?

Preston discovered that in 2014, an $800 million bond was allocated to Broward County Public Schools, with more than $100 million earmarked directly for school safety. However, many of the planned safety upgrades to county schools were delayed due to concerns over costs. read more
