    We're busy up here with COVID, another New York Times story based on people familiar with the situation, another day of former V.P. Joe Biden hiding in the basement, and lots of rumors about President Trump dropping out. Down in Mexico, the situation is not about rumors. Last week, Mexico City police chief Omar García Harfuch was gunned down near his Lomas de Chapultepec home in Mexico City. For the record, I'm very familiar with that part of Mexico City. It's upscale and exclusive. How did people with high-powered rifles enter this supposedly secured neighborhood? The assassination attempt happened at...

We have a — I was just given a beautiful picture of the wall. That’s before and after. And that’s quite a difference: one area you walk over, you drive over, you do whatever you want, and other one you say, “Well, I guess we don’t get in.” Here’s another one — just given. That’s great. That’s a different section. Pretty amazing.They’ve done a great job; we’re...

    This will teach those Islamophobes that Islam is a religion of peace: a professor is facing death threats for suggesting otherwise. Nicholas Damask, Ph.D., has taught political science at Scottsdale Community College in Arizona for 24 years. But now he is facing a barrage of threats, and his family, including his 9-year-old grandson and 85-year-old parents, is in hiding, while College officials are demanding that he apologize – all for the crime of speaking the truth about the motivating ideology behind the threat of Islamic jihad worldwide. Damask, who has an MA in International Relations from American University in Washington,...

    Arizona Senate candidate Mark Kelly gave us a good indication of the state of the Democratic Party this weekend now that Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) is the bonafide frontrunner in the 2020 presidential primary. Kelly, who's running to unseat Republican Sen. Martha McSally in November, can't give a straight answer as to whether he'll support a democratic socialist for president. CBS 5 Arizona's Family reporter Dennis Welch first tried to get an answer out of Kelly on air on Friday. "Bernie Sanders wins," Welch said, giving Kelly a hypothetical. "Are you going to support someone who describes himself as a...

    Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar issued a statement in opposition to bill. Gosar called the bill “a direct attack on federal constitutional rights.” “Twelve radical Democrats in Arizona have introduced shocking legislation, Senate Bill 1625, which would flagrantly violate the Bill of Rights and American civil liberties,” stated Gosar. “Not only do these extremists seek to disarm citizens, leaving them without the ability to defend their families, themselves, or their property, they also directly attack Arizona jobs and the Arizona economy by seeking to unlawfully ban gun manufacturing in Arizona.” Gosar noted that Arizona is “home to Sturm, Ruger & Co....

    PHOENIX — An organization of moms against gun violence is applauding a recent decision by the Phoenix Union High School Board. The board voted unanimously last week to require the parent or guardian of the district’s 27,000 students to read and sign a gun storage safety form. "This is just an obvious thing we can do to prevent future tragedies,” said board member Lela Alston. The "Secure Storage Notification Resolution" requires that gun storage and safety information be included in the student handbook of all 27,000 students of the district's 20 high schools. The resolution was prompted by the groups...

    Three moderate Democrat senators — Joe Manchin (WV), Doug Jones (AL), and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) —may ultimately vote to acquit President Donald Trump in the upper chamber’s impeachment trial, according to a new report. At least one of the senators have signaled that they could vote in favor of only one impeachment article — the abuse of power — but oppose obstruction of Congress. In an interview with Politico this week, Manchin said he will only support one of the articles if he “can explain one and not the other.” The West Virginia Democrat, who has yet to decide...

    As part of CNN’s day-long-pants-wetting resulting from Arizona Senator Martha McSally (R) calling out CNN correspondent Manu Raju as a “liberal hack,” CNN hosts Chris “Fredo” Cuomo (Cuomo Prime Time) and Don Lemon (CNN Tonight) railed against the Senator during the handoff between their shows on Thursday. Cuomo lashed out by describing McSally, the first female U.S. combat pilot, as a “punk” and later argued that her criticism of his colleague “should hurt her.” As he pivoted away from suggesting all Republican senators were liars, Cuomo started to target McSally. “That’s what’s so upsetting about McSally today. This is a...

    Picture by Caldwell family, with permission. Cropped by Dean Weingarten Mountain lion populations are on the increase and pose significant threats to unarmed humans.  Mountain lions were involved in a flurry of interaction with humans in the last two weeks of 2019. On 26 December 2019, Gary Gorney was hunting pheasants with his two dogs, in the Custer Mine hunting area near Minot, North Dakota. His dogs alerted him to something ahead. Instead of a pheasant, a large female mountain lion charged him out of the grass. He shot and killed the lion with his 9mm pistol. Minot Gorney...

    Guns & Ammo's annual ranking of gun-friendly states. From worst (New York) to best (Arizona), here are the best states for gun owners in 2019. Top 5 - Most Gun-Friendly States: Arizona, Idaho, Alaska, Kansas, OklahomaBottom 5 - Least Gun-Friendly States: New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Hawaii, California Things were looking uncertain for gun owners in many states in 2018 thanks to a successful push in otherwise pro-­gun states to enact gun control legislation. Things seem to have stabilized in 2019. We are, at least for now, back to normal with states on the extreme ends of the spectrum growing...

    This morning I had another experience with a dog aggressively defending its territory. I was on my exercise walk. The sky was light before the sun was up. A pair of dogs were in a fenced yard, with their owner. They took exception to my presence. The fence, next to the sidewalk, was only two feet tall, as incentivized by the silly local zoning laws. I am a dog person. I understand dog body language pretty well. As I passed the yard, on the sidewalk, with a boulevard to my right and the yard to my left, I considered...

    Open carry of holstered pistols was commonly seen at the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Phoenix, Arizona, 21-23 September, 2019. The GRPC had an overflow crowd of over a thousand activists from around the nation. Many were standing in the back of the conference room, trying to find seats. It was the largest GRPC ever. There were numerous examples of holstered pistols in evidence. Open carry has become common and accepted in Arizona, as a result of Second Amendment activists in the state. In the 1990s, the open carry of holstered pistols was under attack in Arizona. During...

    There is an ongoing thrust by the fanatical pushers for a disarmed population, to enlist corporate America to their cause. Understandably, corporate entities are uneasy about outright support for any political faction; come out strongly on one side or the other, you are potentially alienating 20-30 percent of your customers. The 50% that are not strongly engaged in politics are unlikely to respond. When it comes to Second Amendment issues, there are about 5 million NRA members and 100 million gun owners. There are about 30 million people that think owning a gun is immoral. The numbers game falls...

    Joe Arpaio announced Sunday that he will seek a seventh term as the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, promising to reopen his infamous tent city jail and bring back controversial jail policies that drew the ire of civil rights advocates and made him a darling of tough-on-crime conservatives. Arpaio, who called himself "America's toughest sheriff" during his 24-year run, said he'll challenge incumbent Paul Penzone in the 2020 sheriff's race. Penzone, a Democrat, unseated Arpaio in 2016 for the job. “On this day, August 25, 2019, after consultation and approval from my wife of 61 years, Ava, I have decided...

    It has been less than three months since Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Ind.) and his fans were celebrating him being on the cover of Time magazine just two weeks after he was New York Magazine's flattering cover story. He followed that up with a fundraising win for the second quarter but things have been a bit quiet around him recently. Political fortunes are notoriously fickle but even more so in a presidential primary that features an unprecedented number of candidates. While Mayor Pete is by no means out of this race his polling numbers haven't followed his big cash haul and...

    When the FBI raided a now-defunct Arizona body donation company, they found a gruesome scene, including remains from different bodies sewn together in a "Frankenstein" manner, and buckets full of limbs, a former agent testified. Biological Resource Center Inc., its owners, employees and other companies, including a funeral home and health care providers, are being sued by family members of dead people who had opted to donate their bodies "solely for medical and scientific purposes." Authorities instead found that bodies at the center were "mishandled, abused, desecrated and sold for profit," according to the suit.
