Vegas mom and child raped and killed

And this is why you should take advantage of your rights protected by the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

Man Booked in Hammer Deaths of Vegas Mom, Child

Using a hammer as a weapon, a "complete stranger" with no significant criminal history allegedly chose a family at random and attacked them in their home, killing a woman and her daughter, in a brutal crime that left investigators both baffled and aghast.
 This is an absolutely ghastly and gruesome crime. Had he used a firearm, the antis would have been all over this, but since it's just a 'hammer death', they don't care.

Explaining ATF Trace Data

I was questioned by an associate about how I arrived at my percentages (72%) for the the unaccounted for firearms in my last post about ATF trace data in MX. His understanding (and that of the media) was that of 99K firearms submitted to ATF for tracing 68K came from the US. While that's true, it's not accurate. I'll walk you through it.

99,691 (100%) firearms were submitted to ATF for tracing. This number doesn't represent all of the firearms recovered in MX, but those that the MX government suspected of coming from the US.

ATF Number are in

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and huge freaking fires (ATF) has released it's much anticipated 2007-2011 Mexico Gun Trace Data. While I don't have access to one of those little thumb drives they handed out to the media, I do have access to the data itself, and so do you, and so does the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and other anti-rights establishment representatives and they're going into pant shitting hysterics.

First, I'll post their twitter feeds and then we'll look at the numbers.

TSA tormenting kids, again, Rat Bastards

I have never been groped by the TSA Rat Bastards and never plan on it happening. An acquaintance asked me "how can you call them Rat Bastards if you've never been through a TSA pat down"? I've never been molested by a pedophile either, and they are still Rat Bastards, that's how.

The Consumerist relates a story from Facebook. According to the poster, she and her kids got through the checkpoint without trouble but grandma had triggered the alarm. She went through the scanner again, but the screener could not firmly ID what was setting off the alarm, and grandma was asked to have a seat and wait for a pat-down.

This is when the 4-year-old ran over to give grandma a hug:

Domestic Violence? Blame the NRA

According to the anti-rights establishment, everything is the fault of the NRA, global warming, violence across the world, world hunger, everything. If there is a firearm involved, it's because of the NRA. This latest edition of Blame the NRA comes from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

Posted on their Facebook page is a link to an article from pressdemocrat about a judge that didn't issue a restraining order against an abusive husband, and then they blame the NRA. The reason they blame the NRA is because the abusive husband, shot and killed his wife while she was leaving her divorce attorney's office. This happened in Sonoma County, CA. They should be blaming the death of this woman on the Brady Bunch. This man didn't get a gun because of the NRA, the wife couldn't carry one because of the Brandy Bunch and the restrictive gun laws of the state of California.

CSGV..Gun laws don't work

The Coalition to stop gun ownership violence is at it again, but got called on their lies. In their tweet messages, the contend that the private sale 'loophole' was responsible for the Columbine school shooting. They claim that the shooting was preventable if only we had just one more law, a law that would require everyone to have a background check prior to purchasing a firearm. Indeed, a law that would require that every purchaser pass a NICS check, would reduce the number of criminals or otherwise prohibited persons from legally purchasing a firearm. The problem, criminals simply don't obey the law, whether selling firearms or buying firearms or using firearms to commit crimes. CSGV agrees.

The blind Anti-Rights Establishment

RE: George Zimmerman. They claimed high and low that there were no injuries to George Zimmerman.

Now they will claim it's a fake in 3....2....1....

Another Student reaction to SB303

LSUReveille has another response to SB 303. This time by one of its 'columnists'.

Scum of the Girth: Proposed gun amendment to La. Constitution goes too far

New Orleans had 199 homicides in 2011, making it America’s most deadly city. The three years prior, saw an average of 175 murders annually, according to The Times-Picayune.

Baton Rouge averaged 30 murders for every 100,000 people in 2011, placing seventh on the nationwide list.

A proposed amendment to the state constitution making its way through the legislature would make guns easier to get. Simple as that.

Really not quite simple as that. The requirement now to purchase a firearm are that you are not a prohibited person. Persons who make the prohibited list are felons and wife beaters. SB303 would change none of that.

The lawmakers can call it protecting the Second Amendment, as if the government would ever be crazy enough to try to disarm citizens. The only reason disarmament worked in the U.K. is because the British prefer to beat and stab each other.

I see you've put very little fact checking into your little article. It must be an opinion piece. You've obviously forgot about the unlawful gun confiscation during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Yep, that's the same hurricane when the NOPD were killing people in cold blood. It makes you wonder why they wanted the population unarmed.

Although the US has a higher murder rate than the UK, the UK has a violent crime rate 5 times that of the US. Disarmament only worked in the UK to allow a safer working environment for the rapist and robbers.

The proposed amendment could go so far as to allow guns in churches and schools.
Has anyone ever sat in church and been disappointed they left their pistol at home? Do people actually do that?

Had anyone done the slightest little bit of fact checking, they would know about the recent incident in which a church memeber with a concealed carry permit disarmed a man with a shotgun in church in S.C.

Giving ordinary citizens the right to essentially “play police” after an afternoon or two of training is ludicrous.

The Constitutional amendment gives no policing authority to the citizens of Louisiana, it merely protects the citizens' right to keep and bear arms. In the state of Louisiana, citizens can openly carry firearms without any type of permit (the way it should be) and carry concealed weapons with a permit. SB 303 does not change that.

I recently received an e-mail from a gentleman from New Hampshire. He gave me the link to a Fox News story about a female student in Nevada who was sexually assaulted walking to her car on her university campus late at night.The woman had a concealed weapons license but was not allowed to carry the weapon on campus.

What do you say to something like this? Obviously, we all wish this woman had been carrying her handgun at the time. This is a situation when lethal force is needed for a person to protect herself. But if we allow this woman to carry a gun on campus, we have to allow everyone else to do the same. That includes individuals like Anders Breivik, the Virginia Tech shooters and the clock tower sniper from the University of Texas.

With the laws currently in place, it’s still possible for a shooter to easily come to campus. So why amend the constitution to make their job easier?

These people that you mentioned were in violation of the laws the moment they stepped foot on campus (except Charles Whitman, I don't think it was in violation of the law to carry a firearm on campus). The law and "no guns" sign did nothing to prevent these people from killing. What could have stopped them is if just one student or faculty member would have been carry a firearm.

It's not hard for someone intent on killing his classmates to conceal a firearm and carry on campus, SB303 wouldn't make it easier or harder.

Why make it so an individual in plain clothes with a holstered revolver no longer stands out as unusual? We have to find a balance. Instances like the one in Nevada should never occur because a person cannot adequately protect themselves. That being said, we cannot toss a Glock 9mm at anyone who wants it.

I have never read or heard of a person who was openly carrying a firearm to go on a shooting spree on school campus. When a person openly carries a firearm, he is noticed. This is why, even though it's legal to openly carry a firearm, criminals tend to conceal theirs.

If the constitution is amended, which I believe it likely will be, the state must take measures to protect the rights of those who do not carry guns equally as much as they protect the rights of those who pack heat on the daily.

I absolutely agree. When was the last time you had to show identification to purchase a pen? I have to show an Id every time I purchase a firearm. If you're in the park writing notes, you'll never be questioned by the police, if I'm sitting in the park, you bet a police officer will want to talk to me to ask why I'm carrying a firearm.

Lengthier and more thorough training is needed for individuals who wish to carry a concealed weapon, along with a more intensive psychological examination.

There is no data to indicate that the training requirement for a concealed license is lacking in any manner. Had you done any fact checking, you would have known that.

We must keep guns out of the classroom and preferably off campus entirely. If students feel unsafe on campus, I advise them to make use of non-lethal projectile weapons, like taser guns or mace.
You'll never keep guns out of the classroom or off campus entirely. The moment someone decides to go on a killing spree is the moment your 'gun free zone' sign failed.

Raping or robbing anyone should be the most dangerous activity a person should take part in. Shooting them with a Taser or pepper spray may not be effective. There are plenty of news reports of Tasers not being effective in the hands of the police, imagine how bad it could turn out without a back up weapon.

Instead of Student Government spending time and money establishing a campus-wide recycling program or rerouting a drunk bus to downtown, maybe they should work to have panic buttons installed across campus or improve LSUPD’s late-night presence.

Yes, because when seconds count, the police are always minutes away. Why not just let the citizens protect themselves?

Gun rights are not in jeopardy. Citizens will forever have the right to compensate for their inadequate sexual abilities with a jet black semi-automatic.

Now you just sunk from being an misinformed 'columnist' to an anti-rights bigot.

The Second Amendment gives citizens “the right to keep and bear arms.” 

Correction, the Second Amendment doesn't give a citizen rights, it protects inalienable rights that are granted by birth.

Nowhere does it say “all the damn time.”

Nor does it say "part time" but it does say "Shall Not Be Infringed"

Houston....We have a problem


MPD, Houston Police Department officers and Harris County Precinct 7 Deputy Constables will take part in a synchronized, counter-terrorism exercise on Friday, April 13, focusing on bus routes, bus stops and shelters, and Transit Centers in high traffic areas. The participating agencies will: ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.

Terrorism, do you say? On a Metro Bus? I don't think so you jack wagons. Petty crime, yes. Purse snatching, harassment, assaults, all yes. Terrorism? Pull your heads out of your asses, bitches. You ass wipes should be more concerned with the rouge bus traveling towards a target with no riders, than the bus making stops at metro shelters. Do you really think a suicide bomber will be sitting on a bench waiting on a bus? Dumbasses!

While local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA [RAT BASTARDS]) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise.

Counter-Terrorism expertise? You've got to be kidding me, Rat Bastards. Terrorism expertise perhaps. There is no other federal agency that has terrorized the American travelers more than TSA

“We have one of the safest transit systems in the world in Houston,” said METRO Police Chief Victor Rodriguez. “One way we are able to keep it that way is through the use of deterrents such as uniformed and plainclothes officers patrolling our system and aggressively addressing suspicious and criminal activity.”

If you have one of the safest transit systems in the world, already, tell us Chief Dumbass, why are we moving up to random bag searches? Asshat!

METRO Police encourage patrons, employees and the general public, if they see suspicious activity, objects or behavior, to say something by reporting it immediately by calling METRO Police at 713-224-COPS (2677), or dial #MPD, a free call from most cell phones.

Well, I see something MIGHTY SUSPICIOUS! I see some very suspicious activity coming from Metro Police and TSA with RANDOM BAG SEARCHES, randomly questioning the traveling public on their destination and K-9 searches that aren't even accurate.

I regret to inform you, America, the terrorists have won.

Beginning of the End

Well, this certainly isn't good. I think I would have to rank this on the What The Hell side on the Bad scale. According to an article by Aljazeera: Gulf seafood deformities alarm scientists.

Just a few quotes:

Eyeless shrimp and fish with lesions are becoming common, with BP oil pollution believed to be the likely cause.

Students React to La SB303

For those of you who do not know, Louisiana's Senate Bill 303 is Constitutional Amendment bill that will provide the residents of the Pelican State with the strongest Constitutional protections for keeping and bearing arms (and purchasing, carrying, transporting, using and all things firearms related). Supporters of the change say YEA! while opponents say Whoa, wait a minute. Opponents are concerned that the Constitutional change will allow for the carrying of firearms in, among other places, schools of higher education. I have a post about the change here.

LSU Reveille has a write-up about the reactions and, of course, I'll be reacting to those reactions with my reactions below. Got that? (you can go to the link and participate in the poll)

Though opposition in the Senate has been thin (36-6), the bill raised concern among Louisiana officials, including those close to the University.

The Board of Regents testified to the Senate judiciary committee expressing its concern for college campuses.

Chancellor Michael Martin has expressed similar sentiments.
“We should all be seriously concerned about the prospect of having guns on campus, in classrooms, in Tiger Stadium or the Lab School,” Martin said.
My response after the jump, go ahead and do it, you know you want to.

Dennis Henigan's favorite killers

Dennis A., Give these violent individuals baseball bats, Henigan Vice President, Brady Campaign should be proud.

One dead, two injured during home invasion. I guess Tucker Cipriano was a fan of DenHen, he broke into the family home and killed his father with a baseball bat. His mother and brother are being treated at a local hospital.This is unbelievably tragic.

Hugh Edwards, 78, was found dead in a trailer in Bithlo in May 2010, beaten to death with a baseball bat, DenHen's preferred method of death. Michael Garay was recently convicted. Garay thought Edwards was a sex offender, he was wrong.

Give a violent individual a baseball bat and they, well, kill people. A Bridgeport man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for his role in the drug-related baseball bat killings of three people. Restrict gun ownership from everyone and thugs are still gonna do what thugs are gonna do. Taylor, one of three people involved in the killings, got the 9 year sentence because he testified against his cohorts. Maybe when he gets out, he can meet DenHen.

On Oct. 21, 2009, Scott Gregory Hawkins, 23 was not allowed to defend himself from being beat to death by his baseball bat wielding Schizophrenic roommate. They lived in a college dorm, a gun free zone. The roommate just received a sentence of 15 years to life for the second degree murder. He'll probably spend the rest of his life in jail, or hospital because he's insane. This is the type of murder than DenHen prefers, because it's less violent.

What do all of these murders have in common? 1. The killers were intent on killing and 2. the victims were unarmed. This is the utopia that Brady Center and DenHen want to cast on America.

I wonder, what is a more violent death, repeatedly getting struck in the head with a baseball bat or getting shot once?

Anti-Rights Liars

I often wonder what compels an anti-gun activist (yes, I'm being nice) to misconstrue the evidence they present for their case. Could it be that they just want to get on a soapbox and spew out their message without putting a second into fact checking? Could it be that they are blinded by their own hate for civil rights that they believe their 'facts' to support their case? Who knows.

Today, I'm examining an opinion by blog writer John Lake titled Children are Dying in Cities - Gun Control Is the Issue

John is writing about the murder rate in Chicago, which apparently has been big news since their murder rate is up 60%.

Sure, we all support some gun ownership. As a boy and a young man I hunted pheasants, ducks, and geese; for the last two, crouching in a chilly and cold duck blind on Wonder Lake. I kept my 12 gauge shotgun clean and well oiled, and the decoys lived in the garage.
But living now in Chicago is another matter. 

Because the Second Amendment is about militias duck hunting with 12 gauge shotguns?

CSGV Liars

Over on the Facebook page of the Coalition to Stop Gun Ownership Violence, they are lying their asses off again. Not that that is surprising.

make the jump for the rest of the story

Legal guns killing Chi-Town....or not

Opinion writer Edward McClelland, jumping to conclusions and falling short, is blaming legally owned firearms for the 60% increase in murders in Chicago. In his most recent Opinion: Did Overturning The Handgun Law Lead to More Shootings?

For anyone looking for a reason as to why Chicagoans are shooting each other more often, how about this one: it’s now legal to own a handgun here.

So, let me get this straight. People are going through the hoops to get a FOID card, background check, purchasing a firearm that can be traced back to them, just to go shoot people? What explains the high murder rate before Chicagoan could legally own a firearm? Dumbass!

The Supreme Court issued its McDonald v. Chicago decision, which held that local governments do not have the right to write their own gun control laws, in 2010. The decision overturned the city’s handgun ban, and the police department began issuing permits later that year.

No, dumbass, the McDonald decision was that the Second Amendment applied to the states, through the Fourteenth Amendment. Furthermore, it wasn't about gun control, it was about gun bans.

Neither does the Supreme Court, which interprets the Constitution without considering the real-world consequences of its decisions. 

I see, it's the SCOTUS that let's the criminals get the guns.

The gun lobby’s solution to the misuse of guns -- laws prohibiting criminals from owning firearms -- does not work. 

And it's about time you anti-rights zealots realize that prohibitive laws only punish the law breaker and don't actually prevent unlawful activity.

First of all, it only takes effect after someone commits a crime with a gun. Second of all, most “illegal guns” are guns that were legally issued, then stolen.

I didn't realize that the city of Chicago issues firearms to it's residents. It seems here that the opinion writer is looking for an out right ban on firearms, that same ban I guess, that resulted in the very low violent crime rate in Chicago before 2010.

I do have to give kudos to the writer for staying on topic and not race baiting or blood dancing.

More TSA Rat Bastard Ass Hattery

I will never be confused with someone who supports the TSA, rat bastards. This is not because I've been accosted by some TSA thug, or have had my 4th Amendments rights violated by the TSA. I haven't flown in a commercial plane in a very long time, I just genuinely believe that these TSA fucktards are bastards. Groping little kids and grandmas, strip searching the hotties, and oh yeah, Violating the 4th Amendment really burns my ass. I think I've discovered why there were so many incidents of TSA Rat Bastards patting down the little kiddies.

TSA agent among 55 caught in kid porn net

Cops snared 55 Massachusetts men in a sweeping, multi-agency child pornography crackdown — including a Transportation Security Administration officer assigned to Logan International Airport who is just the latest embarrassment for the troubled federal agency.

TSA agent Jose E. Salgado, 59, of Chelsea, (Massachusetts) was suspended from his job after his employers learned that local law enforcement agencies are pursuing criminal charges against him for the possession and sharing of pornographic images of children.

At least two other TSA officers assigned to Logan have faced sex charges in the past two years. Sex charges against others have been reported in Virginia, New Hampshire, Nevada, Georgia and other states.

One more thing, TSA Rat Bastards can kiss my ass. /rant

CSGV wants new law for law abiding, not criminals

Yesterday, CSGV tweeted:

"Law-abiding gun owners"? Hardly. The law allows repeat misdemeanants to buy guns. And private gun sales are TOTALLY unregulated, no check.

So, I engaged them with:

@CSGV what would force criminals to comply with NICS on private sales?

Louisiana vying for Baldwin Top Ten

I'm guessing that the Louisianan State Legislators didn't appreciate not making it to the Baldwin Top Ten states with the least restrictions on gun ownership, well, maybe not, but they sure as hell want to protect the right of the state's citizens to keep and bear arms. Last week, a proposed Constitutional Amendment passed the Senate Judiciary Committee and went to the full senate Monday where it passed 31-6.

Lies that Lawyers tell

The 'lawyers' over at Legal Community Against Violence (but really just against guns) let loose a little piece about Stand Your Ground laws and Zimmerman/Martin where they try to twist some facts, just out right lie and omit some things. Let's take a look, the we'll compare the Retreat States and SYG States:

On February 26th, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was walking down the street in Sanford, Florida, when he was confronted by 28-year-old George Zimmerman. Trayvon Martin was carrying a can of iced tea and a bag of candy; George Zimmerman had a license to carry a concealed weapon and a 9 millimeter handgun.

First, there is no evidence that Zimmerman confronted Martin. When Zimmerman was on the phone with 911, he stated that Martin was running away. Martin's girlfriend said she was on the phone with him and heard Martin ask if Zimmerman had a problem to which Zimmerman replied "what are you doing here?"

Florida's weak concealed handgun licensing law enabled Zimmerman, who had been previously arrested for battering a police officer, and whose neighbors had complained about his aggressive behavior, to legally carry a hidden, loaded handgun in public.

If Zimmerman was LCAV's client, they would be raising hell about an arrest being brought up and yelling from the rooftops that it wasn't a conviction. It also seems that LCAV is supporting Open-Carry, since their only complaint is that the gun was "hidden"

Zimmerman had been following Martin in his car, telling the police in a 911 call that Trayvon looked "real suspicious" because he was "just walking around looking about." Zimmerman cornered the unarmed teenager, shot, and killed him. Afterward, the shooter claimed to be acting in self-defense; to date, he has not been charged with any crime.

There is NO evidence what so ever that indicates Zimmerman cornered Martin. The evidence shows that Martin attacked Zimmerman. Of course someone is going to claim self defense after they shoot someone, you can't claim it before you defend yourself.

Florida's extreme "Stand Your Ground" law, which establishes a low threshold to justify the use of deadly force, may now protect his implausible claim of self-defense. These laws create a poisonous recipe for tragedy: an innocent young man is now dead and his killer may be shielded from justice.

Florida's SYG law did not lower the threshold to justify defending yourself. The SYG law removed a duty to retreat, protects the person defending himself from civil litigation and protects the person defending himself from being locked up during the investigation.

Florida's weak laws are not unique. Twenty-five states, including Florida, have “Stand Your Ground” laws, containing provisions that generally allow the use of deadly force in self-defense with no duty to retreat when outside the home.

Let's go ahead a compare the Violent Crime Rates and Murder Rates between the 25 states that have SYG and the 19 that require a retreat

As you can see, the Duty to Retreat states have an average violent crime rate of 395.71 and a murder rate of 4.67.

The Stand Your Ground states have a lower violent crime rate of 383.74 and a lower murder rate of 4.61 so it appears that the Stand Your Ground law does not lead to more violent crime or murder.

Common Sense from....Brady?

It seems as though someone in the Brady Bunch has a little bit of common sense, or misspoke, and acknowledged that gun control doesn't work.

via gunwire, waronguns, saysuncle, and I'm sure many many more

In an article by Mercury News: California's tough gun laws could not prevent East Oakland tragedy, Brady Bunch representative Amanda Wilcox had this to say:

Just some news

Always listen to the 911 operator.

rear naked choke hold, because a small person could never kill a larger person.

Home invader breaks window to enter house, police catch him, then release him at the scene. No charges will be filed. Personally, I think they should have just chopped his head off and called it a day. You know he'll be back, they always come back.

Guns are not the answer...

until it is the answer, #2

Over in LANDRUM, S.C., WYFF Channel 4 is reporting:

A woman who had just finished doing overnight work in a Landrum business on Saturday was assaulted by two men, but ended up turning the tables on them when she pulled out a gun and shot at them.
The 41-year-old woman had left through the back door of her business at about 1 a.m.  She said she got her car from the parking lot, and pulled up to the back door to retrieve an umbrella she had left inside. She said when she stepped back outside, two men confronted her.

More on the Oikos shooting

Brady took a break from dancing in the blood of a teenager to condemn the 'lax' gun laws of California. From their Facebook page:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Oikos University victims and their families. Let us redouble our commitment to stop gun violence and hold elected officials accountable for the lax laws, policies, and mindsets that make it easy for these tragedies to happen in America.

Yep, Kali, their numero uno fav-or-ite state with the strictest gun laws in the nation is now on the back side of a hand swatting.

Madness, I say, Madness in the UK

via David Codrea at waronguns

The Telegraph is reporting: Internet activity 'to be monitored' under new laws

and that's not all

Under legislation expected in next month's Queen's Speech, internet companies will be instructed to install hardware enabling GCHQ – the Government's electronic "listening" agency – to examine "on demand" any phone call made, text message and email sent, and website accessed in "real time", The Sunday Times reported.

But what do you expect from a Kingdom that doesn't have a freedom of speech, a right to not incriminate one's self, a right to remain silent or a right to protect themselves.

When the hell are you people going to stand up for yourselves?

This is the same utopia that the anti-rights establishment wants for the US.

Another Gun-Free Zone, another shooting

My condolences to the family of the victims.

Mercury News is reporting: Six dead in shooting at Oakland university; suspect arrested in Alameda

OAKLAND -- Witnesses described a panicked scene after a shooting suspect opened fire in a classroom at an East Oakland private university Monday morning, killing at least six and wounding several more.
Police would not confirm the total number of casualties from the shooting at Oikos University on Edgewater Drive, but said that a suspect had been arrested at Alameda's South Shore Center.
