    Opponents of an armed population often claim that semi-automatic rifles are a new phenomena in the United States. That is false. One of the first successful semi-automatic or self loading rifles was the Remington Model 8 above. It was patented in 1900 by John Moses Browning.Commercial production started in 1906. It was a successful design, used in the hunting fields, in law enforcement, and had limited usage in the U.S. military. The model 8 was modified a bit in 1936 and become the model 81, which was produced until 1950. You can see that some of the design features...

    Heroes need prayers, too.Stephen Willeford — the Texan who confronted and shot the gunman who killed 26 people at a rural Baptist church Sunday — could use a bunch of prayers, his close friend John Wood says.To many, Willeford’s actions outside the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs made him a hero.But the hero, who is described as a faithful Christian, was distraught when he called Wood at his Ohio home right after confirming gunman Devin Patrick Kelley’s death.“I talked to him immediately after it happened, basically before any of the law enforcement arrived,” Wood — a retired Church of Christ...

    Stephen Willeford, Hero of Sutherland First Baptist Church Gunfight This morning, November, 10th, 2017 I was listening to KBLU 560, in Yuma, Arizona. American Morning News came on at 0943. It was a short segment. I did not have a recorder going, but I heard this report near the end of the segment.  I believe it is fairly accurate, certainly the sense of it. I could not find a transcript of it on the Internet.After a report on heroics at the Sutherland First Baptist Church, in Texas, the scene of a horrific mass murder, this was the report:The gunman...

    CORNING, Calif. - Witnesses tell a chilling account of two gunman who opened fire at Rancho Tehama Elementary School near Corning Tuesday morning.

A school secretary ran out and yelled for the kids to get in the classrooms because someone was shooting at the school. Ferreira said he ran into a classroom with 14 students. He said the series of shots came through the classroom windows, hitting one student. Ferreria said a young...

    On Saturday, I reported on a piece of audio information from investigator Mike Tokes regarding air traffic control audio in which a dispatcher can be heard saying, "Shutting down might not be a good idea, there’s active shooters on the runway".  The 19s are closed, we are in the process of trying to round them up, they are on the airport property.” This was the audio we previously shared with you. I was able to retrieve the entire audio, which you can hear below. [audio mp3=""][/audio] You will hear later on down the line at around 26 minutes that the...

    Feeling helpless hearing the news of yet another mass shooting, this time in a church in a small town in Texas. Name wasn't Islamic, so my guess is either a plain old fashioned lunatic, or a snowflake in meltdown. Which ever. This is all I can do about it, start a memorial song thread for people to contribute to. Theme is Texas, cowboys, oil wells, whatever Texas means to you, or Baptist hymns, if that's what you want. Songs are best, but poems, anecdotes, whatever moves you. I grabbed one of the best again, with the song Giant.

    On Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation released 1,500 pages of documents related to their investigation and subsequent findings regarding the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.The document dump was publicized by the FBI via their records vault Twitter account. While there are lots of unanswered questions surrounding Sandy Hook and lots of things in the official story, as well as the behavior of many people involved, the issue always needs to be transparency, and while some of the documentation answers some questions, there are entire redacted pages in the document dump which raise more...

    Today is the 11th anniversary of the Nickel Mines Amish school shooting. Just like eleven years ago, it is Monday the 2nd of October. Just like eleven years ago--and sixteen years ago on the 11th of September--the northeastern United States is swathed in deep azure cloudless skies. And, just like eleven years ago, on the Catholic calendar it is the Feast of the Guardian Angels. Eleven years ago a milk hauler gone rogue backed his pickup truck the door of the one-room schoolhouse, heavily armed, and possessing implements for other crimes, intent on deflowering the innocent schoolgirls within. As police...
  • Stephen Paddock’s ‘secret life’: Why assume that he made his millions legitimately?

    American Thinker ^ | 10/05/2017 | Thomas Lifson
    Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, an elected official who plans to face voters again next year, has been letting out more interesting tidbits on the investigation into Stephen Paddock than others who have appeared at the press conferences. Yesterday, he mentioned that Paddock had a “secret life” and “that it was only logical to ‘make the assumption’ that Stephen Paddock had ‘some help at some point’ in pulling off Sunday's massacre.” This would seem to open the door to some sort of connection to an international terror group, but if so, evidently there is no evidence on hand, because...

The gunman, who officials said shot himself and was taken to a hospital, opened fire in Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, southeast of Nashville, just after 11 a.m. and fired “multiple rounds,” police said in a news conference. The Nashville Fire Department called the incident “a mass casualty situation.” A church usher confronted the gunman at one point and was pistol-whipped, causing "significant injury around his head." He told police he...

    High school shooting teams are increasing. They were common in the 40's, 50's, and 60's. Increasing government and media hostility to private gun ownership caused a huge decrease in the teams from 1968 through 2000. Now the numbers are growing. A Wisconsin representative is suggesting that Wisconsin develop a high school class on gun handling and gun safety.  A Wisconsin writer commented on the bill. From State Representative Ken Skowronski (R-Franklin) introduced a bill Thursday that would have the Department of Public Instruction develop a firearm course for Wisconsin High school students.
