According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the man, 21-year-old Marquise Trevel Yates, broke into a home on Seabrook Cove Road, off Arlington Expressway, about 6:30 a.m. and threatened the homeowner, 50-year-old Foster Coker, at gunpoint.

Police said there was a struggle between Yates (pictured below) and Coker, but Coker was able to get away.

“The homeowner was able to retrieve a firearm and the suspect of the robbery was deceased at the scene,” said Sgt. Michael Paul.

According to the police report, Coker retrieved his personal firearm and exchanged gunfire with Yates. Coker’s wife, Pam, also fired her personal handgun at Yates, who died at the scene.

Wow!

While as a pro-life pro-choice little L libertarian, I am saddened at the loss of any human like!

But the chutzpah of an occupied home invasion is stunning.

What else can people do?

One less criminal! And, hopefully, the message gets out!

GUN: What chance does a 74 year old woman have?

OCOEE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) – The victim of a violent purse-snatching in Orange County is telling her story to Fox 35 after being discharged from the hospital.

74-year-old Charlotte Dunaway was released from Orlando Regional Medical Center, but is still recovering from Friday’s attack at an Ocoee Publix.

I guess Florida hasn’t issue enough carry permits.

What chance does a 74 year old woman have against two “urban yutes”?

It’s hard not to stereotype when you see videos like this.

I imagine “Harry Callahan” at the Publix. Wonder what he’d say or do there?

“I know what you’re thinking, punk. You’re thinking “did he fire six shots or only five?” Now to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow you head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself a question: “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do ya, punk?” — Clint Eastwood as Harry Callahan in the 1971 classic “Dirty Harry”

GUNS: WMAL Brian Wilson RKBA is the “war on women”

Brian Wilson got on a roll yesterday morning.

I don’t have an exact timestamp but it was in the 7:30 time frame.

He made the assertion that the true war on women was the right to defend themselves.

His example was:

“Taylor Woolrich, a junior, says Dartmouth administrators told her they won’t let her carry a gun on campus, even though she lives in fear of a man who has been stalking her since she was a high school student in San Diego.”

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/08/06/ivy-leaguer-plagued-by-stalker-may-drop-out-over-schools-anti-gun-policy/

I have a “bumper sticker” quote that sums it up: “Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

Brian went on to argue that the R’s should adopt this issue in response to the D’s “war on women” spiel.

He also suggested that the NRA jump on this issue.

And, he expressed shock that this was in New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state.

(I’m a signer on the Free State Project freestateproject.org to move 20,000 liberty lovers to NH and make it the “truly Free State”. Obviously a lot of work to be done yet.) 

The Second Amendment is about self-defense. Both from the tyranny of the government and other predators both two legged and four legged.

Argh!

Seems so simple to me!


RANT: Court Says TSA Can Lie

Court Says TSA Can Lie About Whether Or Not It Has The Information You’re Requesting
from the clearly-spelled-out-on-the-brand-new-FUIA-request-forms dept

*** begin quote ***

In theory, the Freedom of Information Act is great. It allows citizens to pursue disclosure from government entities in order to better understand processes or look for malfeasance. In reality, however, it’s often incredibly difficult to convince these agencies to actually free up any information.

Whatever isn’t delayed indefinitely is redacted heavily. Everything else that doesn’t hit these two extremes tends to run into various bureaucratic walls. FOIA request fulfillment is often handed off to whatever part of the agency seems least likely to want the job, either because of its natural antipathy towards the public or because it’s chronically understaffed.

It’s gotten to the point where people are regularly suing the government to get documents released. No one needs to point out the sheer insanity of a system that expends public money to keep public documents from the public, especially one that is governed by an act meant to make the wall between the public and its servants so thin as to be nearly transparent.

Hopefully, one of these days, the Sheeple will wake out and realize that the Dead Old White Guys were right and it’s Gooferment we have to fear!

Argh!

RANT: 40% of U.S. food

40% of U.S. food is never eaten
How composting could benefit pocketbooks and the environment
By Quentin Fottrell 

*** begin quote ***

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plan to require residents to compost their food waste may cause headaches for some families, but experts say it could also help cut their rising grocery bills.

Under the proposal, by 2016 the city will require residents to separate their food waste for collection. Organic waste in New York City — which could otherwise be recycled for fertilizer or natural gas — currently accounts for 1.2 million tons or 35% of landfills, and a pilot program on Staten Island achieved a participation rate of 43%, according to the mayor’s office. Last year, Vermont introduced a bill to by 2020 require residents to recycle their food waste — and 33% of the organic waste in that state already gets composted.

*** end quote ***

Mayor B is an entertaining parody of a leader. 

First it’s the big gulp.

Now, he’s just helping.

Argh!

Is there anything that he can’t try to control?

Now don’t get me wrong, 40% waste, and really any waste, is a “sin”.

Growing up “starving children in china” were ofter used as a guilt trip.

For my own part, living alone, it’s hard to go to the supermarket and find packages for one.

In one recent trip, I could buy 8 pre made hamburgers at the cost of half the weight in bulk. Thanks to a freezer and vacuum sealer, I have 7 hamburgers for different days. 

Pre-made salad is cost effective for me. To buy the makings costs more and usually goes bad to quickly.

Sad to say, I depend upon the cafeteria at work for two meals a day. And, I hate week ends for the loss of it.

(Seriously, last week end I made up some hard bolded eggs. But the cafeteria’s are better than mine. Mine are hard to peel; theirs aren’t.)

Just like a “nursing home” except I have to do my own wash.

Laff!

So, I’ll try and do my part Mayor B and not waste anything. Hope everyone else does the same. Without your diktats.

GUNS: “Gun Free Zone” is a free fire zone for the bad guys

A Brief and Bloody History of Gun Control
by Anthony Gucciardi
StoryLeak

*** begin quote ***

Painted signs reading ‘gun free zone’ and gun control legislation that really only affects law-abiding citizens does not prevent mass shootings, as we have seen evidenced by more than one shooting incident. Both the Aurora shooting at the Colorado movie theater dubbed the ‘Batman shooting’ and the most recent Sandy Hook incident in Connecticut both occurred in areas with heavy gun regulation. Amazingly, the Batman shooter actually traveled to the one movie theater in the area that actually did not permit lawful citizens to carry a concealed weapon. According to Dr. John R. Lott in an interview with Newsmax,

”…the one he picked was the only one of those movie theaters that banned people taking permit-concealed handguns into that theater.”

*** end quote ***

Again, these killers are crazy, but not stupid.

I don’t understand why the victims are not litigating with the movie theater for that policy putting them in harm’s way.

Like the Luby’s story, law abiding people obey laws. Criminals don’t.

Seems as simple as 1+1=2 … …

Yet, the Sheeple and Clovers allow the Gooferment, politicians, bureaucrats, and liberal media disarm everyone with “wishful thinking”.

Argh!

GUNS: Defensive use of a gun gets near ZERO coverage

Examiner.com Texas woman shoots wanted serial robber, possible rapist; Story ignored by MSM DEFENSIVE GUN USE  APRIL 11, 2013  BY: JENNIFER CRUZ

*** begin quote ***

Early Sunday morning, April 7, in Lumberton, Texas (http://www.examiner.com /topic/texas) three robbers kidnapped and robbed one woman, but when they moved on to rob two more women they were met with an unexpected surprise.

According to a report by 12 News Now (http://www.12newsnow.com/story/21902660/beaumont-police-arrest-man-they- say-is-responsible-for-robbery-spree) , one of the would-be victims brought their robbing spree to a halt when she shot one of them. The three robbers, identified as 21-year-old Scott Willis, Jr., 21-year-old Malik Washington, and 21-year-old Ariel Malveaux, all of Beaumont, have apparently been targeting women as victims of robberies since last month.

In the first robbery which happened on Sunday morning, the three abducted a woman at gunpoint, and forced her to drive to an ATM to withdraw cash. There has also been an unconfirmed report that she was sexually assaulted.

In the second robbery attempt, the three approached two women and demanded money. One of the women was able to retrieve her handgun and shot Willis in the abdomen, reportedly puncturing his liver. Willis is being held in the intensive care unit at Christus St. Elizabeth hospital where he is being treated for the gunshot wound. Upon his release, Willis will be charged with aggravated robbery. Washington and Malveaux are both being held by Lumberton police on aggravated robbery charges. Washington also faces a kidnapping charge.

*** and ***

One would think that a story of this woman’s courage and quick thinking which ultimately led to the capture of three violent serial robbers would be a big story that would catch the attention of mainstream media. However, it has not. At the time this article was published, there were only eight reports of this incident (https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy- ab&q=woman+shoots+robber+lumberton+texas&oq=woman+shoots+robber+lumberton+texas& gs_l=hp.3…18800.21573.1.22579.10.10.0.0.0.6.872.3850.0j3j2j2j0j2j1.10.0…0.0…1c.1.8.psy-ab.boc1zkCf2Rw&pbx=1& bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.45107431,d.b2I&fp=f541d26e5940a762&biw=1366&bih=664) , all which include local media outlets, local conservative political websites, a forum, a blog and an individual’s Facebook page, who happens to be the brother-in-law of the first woman who was robbed.

However, when a 4-year-old accidentally shoots a 6-year-old, the media is sure to exploit it everywhere, with more than 17 pages (https://www.google.com/#q=4+year+old+shot&hl=en&ei=hUFnUfjlCoeU2wWygIH4CQ&start=0&sa=N&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.& bvm=bv.45107431,d.b2I&fp=f541d26e5940a762&biw=1366&bih=664) of stories covering the incident, including many mainstream media outlets.

In addition, the big story reported by local media seems to be that the police caught these criminals, giving very little, if any, credit to the woman who actually shot one of them, which ultimately resulted in the apprehension of all three.

Is there bias in media reporting which compliments an anti-gun agenda? Voice your opinions below.

*** end quote ***

Sure there IS a big anti-gun bias.

“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

“God created men and women, but Sam Colt made them equal!” Quote inspired by Sam Colt

Wishing that the world wasn’t a dangerous place will do nothing but increase the body count.

Capital punishment doesn’t seem to deter bad behavior, armed victims seem to put a big crimp in it. Not mention a big hole in a vital body part. I recommend that women aim just below the center of mass. Let the recoil bring it up to the kill zone.

If a kick there hurts, imagine getting it blown away.

That should solve the problem very quickly.

Note that not everyone has to be packing. Just enough so that it turns a “sure thing” into “risky business”.

“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.” — Robert A. Heinlein
