    On 28 April, at about 9:30 p.m. in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, an armed employee captured a burglary suspect. It was the result of digital surveillance, an active business owner, and a diligent, armed employee. The owner's fiancee was notified of the intrusion by a NEST video system. The owner and two employees were only a few blocks away from the business. The employee who was legally armed, waited outside the business while the owner searched the inside. The search flushed the suspect into the area covered by the employee, who then placed the suspect under citizen's arrest. The Ashwaubenon police were...

    Thousands of people will march through Hollywood and the Mid-City area Wednesday to mark the 104th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, again calling on Turkey — and the United States — to officially recognize that it occurred. Turkey has refused to recognize the killings of 1.5 million Armenians beginning in 1915 as a genocide. Americans presidents also have declined to do so, calling the deaths at the hands of the Ottoman Empire an atrocity but not a genocide. ... The Armenian genocide began in 1915 and resulted in the deaths of as many as 1.5 million Armenians in a campaign...

    HOUSTON, TEXAS — A man fought for his life against not one, not two, but five armed men who broke into his home. This gun owner was prepared for a fight, and utilized his AK-47 to defend his home and his life. Two masked men went into the home where the 20-year-old resident was. At first, he though it was a joke, but quickly realized that these armed men meant business. When they demanded cash, the resident complied. At least, that’s what he wanted them to believe. He said that he was going for what they wanted and reached under...

    secret cliques of violent, tattooed sheriff’s deputies continue to operate in stations around Los Angeles County and that one may have played a role in a fatal shooting in 2016. County leaders reacted with alarm, and appropriately so, because it had been generally thought that these sorts of dangerous deputy gangs had been stamped out following a series of reforms several years earlier. It was necessary to find out if they had returned, or if indeed they had never left. Then-Sheriff Jim McDonnell promised a study and he was immediately joined by county lawyers, the inspector general and the Sheriff...

    London continues its downward spiral under London Mayor Saddiq Khan’s leadership. Or lack thereof. According to figures from the London Metropolitan Police, 49 percent of knife crime is committed by teenagers. Even more revealing were numbers that indicated that three quarters of knife crime perpetrators were minorities. This is part of a larger trend of failed government policies that are beginning to produce toxic social outcomes throughout the UK. For a start, it doesn’t help that the UK has an expansive welfare state that is not very conducive to immigrant assimilation. One needn’t look further at the case of Sweden...

    Remember this list whenever progressives want more in the way of background checks or registration. Remember this list whenever they deny that they want to confiscate guns. They used to conceal their intentions behind a mask of lies and deceptions, but now they are being open and honest about what they want. The progressives have made over 70 plus demands for some form of gun confiscation – meaning repeal of the 2nd amendment, mandatory “buy backs” – of something they never owned - or outright bans. They are no longer for gun safety but for total disarmament. These 70 cases...
