    BROCKTON, Mass. — A woman accused of stabbing a Brockton mother to death during a road-rage incident on Friday afternoon was ordered held without bail Monday. At an arraignment session in Brockton District Court, the defense attorney for Jacqueline Mendes, 32, of Fall River, claimed his client acted in self-defense after the woman she later stabbed, Jennifer Landry, approached his client’s car with a knife of her own. The violence allegedly stemmed from a verbal argument about driving, though police do not believe a collision occurred.

    We have all heard of never bring a knife to a gunfight. True, but depending on the situation knives do have the advantage over guns in short range fights. Knives do have their disadvantages as well, nothing is perfect. Having a knife as a backup to your pistol should be a part of your every day carry. Sometimes, getting to your pistol isn't always that easy when you’re caught in close quarter and have to do some hand-to-hand and getting the knife out was easier. f you decide to carry a knife with the intent of using it to defend...

    This knife is for real. And it has an amazing 87 different folding tools. But what makes this product stand out are all the wacky comments by the reviewers. Most of them are comedy gems. Here are just two: "I tried to file my nails, but in the process I accidentally fixed a small engine that was near by. Which was nice." "With this, I once fought off a family of hungry grizzlies by simply pulling it out of my pocket. They apologized for the inconvenience and left."

    In a recent episode of the Crackpot Podcast, James LaFond and Lynn Lockhart discuss a video of a vagrant gang attack on an NYPD officer in a subway. The officer successfully defends himself using a front push kick called a ‘teep‘ in muay thai as well as a collapsible baton called an ASP. The officer is a large man with good balance, footwork, and vision. He was helped by citizen good samaritans. The video demonstrates the increasing boldness of criminals against police. These were vagrants who uniformly live a life of hard drug abuse, violence, and petty theft. However, criminals...

    AUSTIN (KXAN) — A knife-wielding suspect allegedly chased a man after he inappropriately touched his girlfriend at Garrison Park, court documents said. Officers responded to the park located at 6001 Manchaca Road right next to Crockett High School in south Austin last Tuesday after a caller said a man with a knife was chasing his friend. When officers arrived, the victim told them he got a text from his girlfriend that said a strange guy touched her inappropriately while at the park. He went to the park immediately and confronted who police identified as 53-year-old Robert Lopez. At first, the...

    The 21 foot rule drill is well known within the law enforcement and personal defense circle. The Tueller drill is all about "reactionary gap" through training. Other trainers have come up with the distances associated it to the Tueller drill. This experimentation, determined that the average healthy adult male can cover a distance of seven yards (21 feet) in about 1.5 seconds. The significance of the time factor is based on the reasonable standard that a person who’s trained in proper pistol craft (gun fighting) should be able to draw a handgun and place two centered hits on a life-size...

    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...

    On Monday morning, during a routine morning shift at the Qalandiya crossing in northern Jerusalem, an Arab woman arrived at the checkpoint. When she put her belongings in for inspection, the combat soldier from the "Erez" battalion, Sergeant Anton Goltzman, saw in the mirror that there was a sharp object in her bag that aroused his suspicion. Anton immediately reported to the war room and closed the crossing. When her bag was checked a knife was discovered inside a Pringles container. "When we opened the bag, we saw nothing but a few personal belongings and a box of snacks,"...

    Looking for recommendations for a high quality folding knife as a gift for my son. He likes knives that kind-of spring open. I'm not sure what to call the mechanism that springs open but is not a switchblade. 3.5 inches is legal where I live. I put a link to Spyderco as I understand they are one of the good companies.

    I am trying to find video of Obama saying that. It is widely acknowledged that he did say it on June 13, 2008 in Philadelphia, but YouTube, Google and all of the MSM have carefully scrubbed the net of this video. Soon, they will deny he ever said it. Just like that video of Al Gore saying that the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely gone by 2013.It's GONE - never to be seen again. I found an archive of Obummer speeches, but it's also been removed from there:

    LAS VEGAS — He ordered the 20-ounce rib-eye, and so the waitress at the upscale restaurant dropped off a wood-handled serrated steak knife. Doug Ritter ignored it. Instead he pulled out a folding knife, its 3.4-inch blade illegal to carry concealed here in Clark County. He flicked it open with one hand. When the steak arrived, medium-rare, he started cutting. The steak dinner came as Ritter was savoring his many successful attempts at repealing the nation’s knife laws. Decades-old restrictions on switchblades, daggers and stilettos have fallen away in state after state in recent years. Much of this is because...

    A teenager is fighting for his life after allegedly being disembowelled during a quadruple stabbing in London’s so-called ‘murder mile’. Describing the incident on the Elmington Estate in Camberwell, a witness said they saw “four or five black boys running, [then] all of a sudden I could hear, ‘Help, help’.” Another resident said they saw one of the four stab victims grievously wounded with his “intestines falling on the ground”, according to MailOnline. Six male suspects, said to be aged between 15 and 16, were arrested following the incident, which took place a stone’s throw from the street where ‘drill’...

    - In the Soviet Union, it was very difficult to obtain firearms legally. All firearms were required to be registered. Being caught with an unregistered firearm was a serious offense. Registration was used by the state to control who was allowed to have firearms, and who did not. The law stemmed from the decree of 1918. From The December decree of the CPC of 1918, “On the surrender of weapons”, ordered people to surrender any firearms, swords, bayonets and bombs, regardless of the degree of serviceability. The penalty for not doing so was ten years imprisonment. Communist Party...

"We are examining the situation and will give more information later," police officials wrote. A witness told LN the bus was full of passengers when the suspected perpetrator dropped...
