GUNS: A “smart gun” is “dumb”

Firing a Locked Smart Gun

The Armatix IP1 “smart gun” can only be fired by someone who is wearing a special watch. Unfortunately, this security measure is easily hackable.


Stupid to think that a “computer in a gun” can be secured.

Common sense is better than idle technology.





GUNS: “We know we are violating numerous constitutional rights here”

Judge Tells Marine to Choose Between 2A Rights And Fostering Grandson
Posted at 9:51 am on July 19, 2017 by Beth Baumann

The Johnsons were going to take custody of their grandson to keep him from going into foster care. When they went to pick up their grandson, William, a retired, disabled Marine with a Concealed Pistol License (CPL), was searched for a firearm. He was not carrying a firearm at the time. At that point, agency officials told the Johnsons that they would be required to provide all firearms’ serial numbers to the agency as part of a registry. When Johnson questioned agency workers, he was given a surprising response.

“If you want to care for your grandson you will have to give up some of your constitutional rights,” a MDHHS worker retorted.

When the Johnsons appeared before a Gogebic County Court judge, the judge reiterated the agency worker’s statement.

“We know we are violating numerous constitutional rights here, but if you do not comply, we will remove the boy from your home,” the judge said.

I would hope that every Michigan patriot will demand that this judge be immediately impeached.

This is unconscionable.

‘I loaded every weapon I could in my house to be prepared in the event that they needed to be used,’ said Hale. ‘I called 911 and made the decision to either get in our panic room and be trapped or get in our car and head down the road.’

‘I grabbed my sweet daughter and got in the car… we saw the men had been running and were much closer to my house now. They took off their shirts and waived them at us as if to slow us down,’ Hale said of the suspects Donnie Rowe, 43, and Ricky Dubose, 24.

*** and ***

They will be brought to justice swiftly for their heinous crime against our officers,’ Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Greg Dozier said in a news release.Their escape began early Tuesday, when authorities said they somehow got through a door that should have been locked separating the guards from the inmates on the prison bus.

One of the murdered guards was Christopher Monica (pictured), who had been a prison guard since 2009. He had been working an extra shift to pay for his ill wifeSgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue were overpowered and shot dead with their own weapons. The fugitives then locked up 31 other inmates and jumped out with the guards’ 9mm Glock pistols, carjacking a driver who happened to pull up behind them.

Strange behavior by the murderers. 

Clearly, an armed citizen, who was ready to use deadly force, put a stop to this.

Here’s an example of when I’d support the death penalty. Clearly these “mad dogs” are too dangerous to be allowed to live.

This is great advice for every driver; not just the gun owner.

Two five minute videos for those carrying a firearm.

Worth watching for the non-gun owners so that you don’t scare the police into an over reaction.

It’s their lives at risk.

GUNS: What the new ‘assault weapon’ regs, not available to the public?

California DOJ files new ‘assault weapon’ regs, not available to the public
5/16/17 | by Chris Eger  

*** begin quote ***

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office this week filed new regulations for review over just what constitutes an “assault weapon” moving forward.

The state Department of Justice submitted draft regulations to the California Office of Administrative Law this week expanding the definition of an “assault weapon” in the state.

The state hasn’t released the proposed regulations to the public, submitting them “file and print only” even though California residents are facing an end of the year registration deadline to abide by the yet-to-be established rules.

This comes three months after the withdrawal of an initial proposed rule formulated during the administration of Attorney General Kamala Harris, now a U.S. senator, to address changes required by legislation passed last year. That rule had been submitted after a proposed emergency regulation on making now-outlawed pre-ban magazines capable of holding more than 10 cartridges compliant, which, in turn, has also been pulled.

The National Rifle Association and California Rifle & Pistol Association had fired off a prelitigation letter to the state, warning of several potential illegalities with the initially proposed regulations and now eagerly wants a look at the new regulations.

It’s just a version of the old “hidden ball” trick. Unfortunately for the politicians and bureaucrats of the Pepuls Republik of Kalifornia, the NRA and other “pro-Second Amendment” groups ain’t falling for it.

“We, The Sheeple” should INSIST that all regs, diktats, and “laws” be available for at least 90 days before a 30 day public comment period and THEN a 90 day “cooling off” period, before they get “voted” on.

That should give enough time to people to vote with their feet!

GUNS: Personal Defense Plan

Why You Need a Personal-Defense Plan
by Sheriff Jim Wilson – Tuesday, March 14, 2017

*** begin quote ***

A strong personal-defense plan may be all the difference in the world between your saying, “They told me this could happen and I know just what to do about it,” as opposed to, “Good grief! What the hell do I do now?”  Which will it be when the time comes?

“Fail to plan; plan to fail.”

Have to do this asap.

Concerned citizen holds Lowcountry burglary suspect at gunpoint external site

A Lowcounty burglary suspect was nabbed after authorities say a concerned citizen spotted him in a field and held him at gunpoint. The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office arrested 20-year-old Raekwon Maple of Cordova and charged him with second-degree burglary and possession of stolen goods. Deputies also charged 20-year-old Antonio Summers of Orangeburg who faces the same charges. Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said it all started around 1 p.m. when a concerned citizen reported two male subjects had fled from a Slaughter Drive residence after having watch them break in. “The caller said he had initially noticed the males after following a suspicious vehicle driving through the Creekmore subdivision off Columbia Road,” OCSO officials said.”The motorist called law enforcement after observing the males go into the residence.” According to authorities, while OCSO deputies were on their way, the burglars were seen fleeing the home when the home alarm system went off. K-9 units then tracked Summers who was then taken into custody. As he was being secured, another concerned citizen called authorities saying he had Maple held at gunpoint after spotting him hiding in a field. The sheriff’s office says one of the suspects had a high dollar watch reported stolen in another burglary that happened earlier this week. In that case, a Forest Drive home owner called her boyfriend after returning home and discovering a door had been broken. “As her boyfriend arrived home, the couple heard a noise inside the residence before a suspect fled out of the front door,” OCSO officials said. “The boyfriend, who has a concealed weapons permit, told law enforcement he fired two rounds at the fleeing suspects before they made good their escape,” authorities said.”That couple reported watches, jewelry, cash, and a substantial amount of change stolen.” Maple was out on bond for multiple charges prior to Friday’s break in, according to the sheriff’s office. The two men could be facing more charges as the ongoing investigation continues, Ravenell said. “This was perfect cooperation between law enforcement and the concerned community,” he said. “When the entire community is against you, you don’t stand a chance at criminal activity.”

I’m not a lawyer; nor do I play one on TV. (And, I can go on and on about what I am not!) So please don’t take me or my ramblings as the authoritative source of legal advice.

Can you fire on retreating criminals?

Maybe in South Carolina!

I wouldn’t, just because I wouldn’t want the hassle.
