    One person is dead and another is hurt after a shooting Saturday night near George Floyd Square in south Minneapolis. According to Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder, officers responded to a ShotSpotter activation at 38th Street East and Chicago Avenue South. Police also received a report that two people had been shot and were being carried to the barricades at the edge of the "autonomous zone." By the time officers got to the scene, the victims had already been taken to the hospital. Elder said the responding officers "were met with interference" upon arrival. Police were told a victim had...
  • Newark Man In Possession Of Machine Guns Sentenced To 31 Months In Federal Prison

    WILMINGTON, Del. – A Newark man was sentenced by the Honorable Colm F. Connolly, U.S. District Judge, today to 31 months in federal prison for possessing machinegun conversion devices.According to court documents, law enforcement searched the residence of Nathan Matthews, 42, in August 2019. In an unlocked safe, they found a homemade 9 mm handgun, ammunition, and two machinegun conversion devices. A machinegun conversion device, or fully-automatic conversion device, sometimes referred to as a “Glock switch,” alters a firearm so that pulling the trigger once causes multiple bullets to fire. It is classified as a machinegun under the National Firearms...
  • Portland Can Relax. The 'Enhanced Community Safety Team' Is On The Job

    03/07/2021 9:09:02 AM PST · by rktman · 11 replies ^ | 3/7/2021 1023 hrs est | Rick Moran
    Portland Oregon politicians decided to drastically cut the budget for the police department at the end of last year, hoping to make their city streets safer — at least for Antifa and Black Lives Matter. For the rest of the citizens? Not so much. Shootings have skyrocketed — nearly 2 1/2 times higher than the year before. Authorities blame the pandemic. And unemployment. And “systemic racism.” And everything but the 7 percent reduction in the police budget. The cuts with the biggest impact on gun violence included the disbanding of the highly effective Gun Violence Reduction Team. The unit was...

    Sen. Joe Manchin, the moderate West Virginia Democrat whose vote the party will almost surely need to pass laws this year, signaled Sunday that he may be open to reforming the filibuster, a procedural rule that requires 60 votes for many measures, effectively dooming most legislation.

  • Democrats Need a ‘Yes’ Vote on Gun Control from Joe Manchin

    03/07/2021 8:45:54 AM PST · by rktman · 60 replies ^ | 3/7/2021 | AWR Hawkins
    The background check gun controls which were introduced in the House last week bring back Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) 2013 gun control push and make his support for the current legislation crucial to Democrat success. Manchin was elected to the Senate in 2010 with an A-rating from the NRA. But following the December 14, 2012, attack on Sandy Hook Elementary school he emerged as a leading gun control opponent in the Senate. He, along with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), introduced universal background check legislation as a response to Sandy Hook. His legislation failed to pass on April 17, 2013, but...
  • Don’t Blame Booming Gun Sales For Increases In Crime

    One factor could be that just as law-abiding citizens went through legal channels to acquire firearms last year and into 2021, so too have criminals. It could be that criminals fear an armed law-abiding population and are responding in kind. It is also important to note that year-over-year crime rates have been on the decline in recent decades even if 2020 reversed those numbers. At the same time, firearms sales have steadily increased. As a result, it is simply unlikely that the record number of legal firearms sales attributed to the increase in crime. Rather it just seemed criminals kept...

    For some reason, Democrats are dead set on making it as easy as possible for criminals to commit acts of violence with firearms. With Democrats in control of Congress and the White House, Americans can expect a series of progressive bills to be introduced. In a budget reconciliation process, the bills can be passed in the U.S. Senate with a simple majority. This is what happened with the $1.9-trillion monstrosity known as the COVID-19 relief bill. Fortunately, most legislation does not qualify for this designation and will require a 60-vote threshold in the U.S. Senate to pass. With such a...

    PHOENIX - A man is dead after being shot by a gas station clerk in Phoenix. Phoenix police say the shooting happened just after 11 p.m. on March 1 at a Chevron station near 44th Street and McDowell Road.

The man was taken to a hospital in critical condition where he was pronounced dead. He was identified by police as 35-year old Andrew Agnew. The clerk stayed at the scene...

    One of the guiding principles of the left is a loathing of the Second Amendment. With Biden and Harris spearheading our descent into communism, everyone knows it's just a matter of time until the right to bear arms will be eviscerated. But what's taking so long? With all the flurry of executive orders Biden was told to sign, where is the one dismantling the Second Amendment? What's the delay? Now granted, there's probably a lot of shuffling going on behind the scenes as Biden is being pushed into the background because of his advancing dementia. Doubtless Harris is gearing up...

    PORT HURON, MI -- A 31-year-old Port Huron woman shot a man in the neck Sunday morning after she claimed he tried to break into her home. The woman’s neighbor in the 900 block of Huron Avenue in Port Huron called police at 5:07 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, to report that a disorderly male was yelling for help in the street. Minutes later, a female resident of a home on the block, called 911 stating she had shot someone trying to break into her home. She was home alone with a small child, according to a Port Huron Police Department...

    The Arizona House passed a law to nullify federal gun control measures last last month, establishing the state as a Second Amendment sanctuary. State Rep. Leo Biasiucci’s Second Amendment Firearm Freedom Act would nullify any new federal gun control laws restricting gun rights, citing the unconstitutionality of the Biden administration’s support for “assault weapons” bans, attacks on online firearms transactions, and forced registry of semiautomatic rifles as NFA items. The law passed the Arizona State House in a 31-29 party line vote in February. “We’re Second Amendment friendly. We love our law-abiding citizens, gun owners,” Biasiucci told the Epoch Times....

Steven Rauch is the father of the girl and he apologized for her placing “officers in that position.” He told News 6 that he forgives the officers who shot his daughter and wants those same officers at her funeral. “I want to hug them, I want everybody else to hug them, they need it, we need it,” Rauch said.

    Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) reintroduced The Background Check Expansion Act, legislation that would expand federal background checks on all gun sales, including private transactions. Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) also reintroduced companion legislation in the House. S. 42 states that the Act “prohibits a firearm transfer between private parties unless a licensed gun dealer, manufacturer, or importer first takes possession of the firearm to conduct a background check.” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, one of 43 Democrats who have co-sponsored the bill, said now is the time to act on expanding background checks.

    Orwellian Media Phrase: “Legally Registered” A phrase commonly found in news articles about self-defense with a firearm is “legally registered”. It is a bizarre phrase because the requirement to register guns is quite rare in the United States. In an article published on 21 February 2021, concerning an incident in Pennsylvania, bold added:“Because if he was getting into my house, I probably would have done the same thing if I had a gun,” neighbor Robert Gonzalez said. “I’m just going to do things a lot safer, look out for myself. Make sure whoever comes, got a look, look at his...

    "I see no reason," Henderson continued, "that she may not possess a firearm, notwithstanding 18 U.S.C. 9922(g)(5)'s prohibition on doing so while 'illegally or unlawfully in the United States' ... inasmuch as 'the Second Amendment conferred an individual right to keep and bear arms.'" The illegal alien's baby was aborted the next day. Biden has now nominated the chief judge who oversaw this unforgettable case -- involving an illegal border crossing -- to be the nation's chief law enforcement officer. At Garland's confirmation hearing, Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri asked him, "Do you believe that illegal entry at America's...

    With Democrats controlling the presidency and Congress, Republican state lawmakers concerned about the possibility of new federal gun control laws aren’t waiting to react. Legislation in at least a dozen states seeks to nullify any new restrictions, such as ammunition limits or a ban on certain types of weapons. Some bills would make it a crime for local police officers to enforce federal gun laws. That can create confusion for officers who often work with federal law enforcement, said Daniel Isom, a former chief of the St. Louis Police Department who is now a senior advisor for Everytown for Gun...

    Judge Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, has a troubling record when it comes to recognizing Americans’ Second Amendment rights. In 2007, Garland voted for a review of the case Parker v. District of Columbia — later known as the landmark Heller v. District of Columbia — by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, where he continues to serve. Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah asked about the matter during Garland’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last month. “The issue was plainly one that would require looking at a deep historical...

    GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - A South Carolina committee passed a bill Tuesday called the “Open Carry with Training" Act, putting the state one step closer to allowing the open carry of guns. Right now, residents in the Palmetto State can only apply for a concealed weapons permit. Under this new law, people with those permits could carry freely. The bill would require citizens to complete training to do this. Proponents of the bill say it’s “common sense" and that 2nd Amendment rights need to be recognized now. Those against the bill say they are not opposed to the concept...
