A Sheriff has Nothing to Apologize for

by: Brent Smith

Yesterday, I read an article from the Blaze. It was regarding a Spartanburg County Sheriff, Chuck Wright, who refused to apologize to two young black men after a shooting incident.

The two men were charged with attempted murder of sheriff’s deputies on September 13th. They charges have since been reduced to aggravated breach of peace, whatever that is, after a review of evidence showed that the two men, Tarus Mallory, 23, and Akymzee Holbert, 22, who were returning home from a party in North Carolina, did not shoot at the officers.

After the charge was reduced the two were quickly released and free to go.

It was then that both men demanded an apology from Sheriff Clark. But it wasn’t just the two who demanded the apology. read more

WND Exclusive – A ‘cooling off’ period for gun buyers but not abortion seekers?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The other day I was discussing with fellow geeks the still-ongoing rioting, looting, destruction of property and general violence in cities throughout our country.

The conversation eventually bumped up against the latest “bail reform” laws promoted and passed by radical leftist city and state leaders.

And this got me to thinking about the juxtaposition of what leftists think is important and what isn’t. In other words, just how consistent are they?

In states and cities controlled by leftists, the waiting period to purchase a gun can range from three days to 30 days, like in New York. read more

Embarrassingly Supreme Disappointment

from Conservative Review:

Horowitz: Conservatives get massacred by fake ‘conservative’ SCOTUS

U.S. Supreme Court

Within 35 minutes today at 10 a.m. Eastern, what some thought was the most conservative Supreme Court of all time concocted a fundamental right to transgenderism in the context of labor law, erased the Second Amendment, and interfered with a state death penalty case, but declined to interfere with a California law that criminalizes law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration agents.

Taken in totality, the “conservative” legal movement, which has promoted the idea of “appointing better judges” rather than fighting the entire concept of judicial supremacism, has failed miserably. This was its Waterloo. read more

Weapon Wednesday – Anti-Tank Gun Extinguishes Oil Fire

YOUTUBE/RUSSIAN MINISTRY OF DEFENCE
  • A Russian oil company called in the army to fight an oil well fire it was unable to control.
  • The Russian army sent a Rapira anti-tank gun and crew to shell the wellhead.
  • An anti-aircraft gun isn’t the biggest weapon used to stop a fire. Think much bigger. Much, much bigger.

Russian troops called in to battle a Siberian oil well fire got the job done with an unusual firefighting tool: an anti-tank gun. The army troops were requested after the owners of an oil wellhead that had caught fire were unable to put out the blaze. The gun, designed to kill NATO tanks, successfully extinguished the fire. read more

So What exactly will happen without Police?

from the American Spectator:

Breaking Out the Winchesters

The apparently unstoppable nuttiness of the present moment has more faces and features than a Summit supercomputer could keep up with. Here, possibly, is the most incredible of those features: the call to “defund” the cops. Whatever “defund” may mean.

That nobody can explain the meaning of “defunding,” or the need for it, shows the rushed and improvised quality of policy — er — “thinking” in a world currently run by those whose pusillanimous elders, back in the late ’60s, routinely labeled them “the brightest generation in history.” If they ever were that bright, I believe it’s time we changed the bulb. Defunding law enforcement is the dimmest notion on public display. read more

Federal Judge Blocks California’s ‘Onerous and Convoluted’ Ammunition Restrictions

A federal judge on Thursday blocked a California law requiring background checks for people buying ammunition, issuing a sharply worded rebuke of “onerous and convoluted” regulations that violate the constitutional right to bear arms.

Now May Not be the Best Time to Come Out

Although this may not be the best time to share this potentially painful reality, being that everyone is already on edge being forcibly cooped up because of the virus, sometime you just have to do what you have to do.

But still – fair warning if you finally summon the courage to tell your leftist family that you’ve gone over to the conservative dark side and worse, are a supporter of the SECOND AMENDMENT.

Our buddies at Black Rifle Coffee let us know what we may likely be in for as they play out the following “real life” scenario: read more

Is a Good Guy with a Gun Really a Good Guy?

A good guy (or girl) with a gun will stop a bad guy with a gun. It happens quite a lot, but isn’t often reported on.

However, many otherwise well meaning liberals simply don’t agree with this premise. Mostly because of the echo-chambers they live in. No one they know owns guns and they’ve been taught that, without exception, guns are bad, and only bad come from owning a gun.

But Will Witt was brave enough to venture out into the city of Pasadena, California to speak to liberals about the “good guy with a gun” statement.

It all begins rather predictably, as the interviewers all agree that guns have no place in society – that there are no good guys with guns.

But when presented with a scenario or two, most of the liberals, having never heard a reasoned argument from the right, began to rethink their positions.

Seeing them begin to question their own beliefs about guns is fascinating and shows that speaking with liberals one on one, without the “mob” distraction, can actually be quite constructive.

A Win for the Good Guys in Virginia

There was a vote to ban “assault” weapons, and other gun-related items in the blue commonwealth of Virginia. And the news is nothing short of miraculous.

With all the anti-gun rhetoric coming out of Virginia lately, one would believe that the commonwealth who brought us George Washington, James Madison and George Mason had gone completely off the constitutional rails.

But instead of passing a sweeping weapons ban, cooler heads prevailed and tabled the vote until 2021. It wasn’t a vote in favor of the Second Amendment entirely, but it is progress.

I ask that at the end of the article, you watch the video. It’s quite instructive. And it ends well!!
