2nd Amendment Success Story – Armed Citizen Kills Serial Bank Robber, Another Arrested

 

 

Phoenix Bank Robber Killed

 

 

” The duo behind a rash of Phoenix bank robberies is out of business, with one now dead and the other under arrest, thanks to the efforts of an armed local businessman.

  On Wednesday, the Desert Schools Federal Credit Union was targeted by Lyndell Cherry, age 29 and Vincent Jones, age 21, who entered at around 2 p.m. and demanded money. The two had left the keys in the ignition and the engine of their getaway vehicle running, a mistake which proved to be their undoing.

  While the robbery was taking place, one credit union employee was able to call Sean Quaid, who owns a business next door to the credit union and told him what was happening. Quaid grabbed his gun and ran outside.  After determining which was the likely vehicle of the perpetrators, Quaid removed the keys from the ignition.

  When attempting their getaway, Cherry and Jones ran outside to their car and found they had no keys. They went back inside to see if they might have dropped them somewhere along the way, even going as far as searching a woman’s purse inside to see if she might have picked them up.

  With time running out, the robbers ran back outside and accosted a couple in a Chevy pickup, with Jones pointing his gun and demanding their vehicle. At that point, Quaid stepped in, ordering the felonious pair to stop. It was then that Cherry reportedly spun around and aimed his gun at Quaid, who fired first, striking Cherry. “

Backdoor Gun Control: D.C. Sets Impossible Hurdles For Carry Permits

 

 

DC CCW Conditions

 

 

” The District’s newly minted concealed carry laws require gun owners seeking permits to complete 18 hours of firearms training.

  One problem: As of Wednesday, the day before a court-ordered deadline for the permitting process to begin, no instructors had been approved to teach the compulsory course.

  The disparity is emblematic of the city’s reluctant scramble to comply with the July order that overturned the District’s ban on carrying handguns in public.

  The Metropolitan Police Department, working off legislation adopted by D.C. lawmakers last month, released the concealed carry applications on its website at about 7 p.m. Wednesday — hours before the stay of U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr.’s order was set to expire.

  The regulations firm up the details of the application process, including establishing a $75 cost to apply for a permit.

  But it’s unlikely anyone will be walking out of police headquarters with the license anytime soon.”

 

   No surprise here . As we predicted , the bureaucrats in power in DC will have to be dragged kicking and screaming into court , yet again , in order to be forced to restore the citizen’s God-given right to self-defense . They don’t work for the people , they work for the State . Always remember: “The State Is Not Your Friend”

Aimpoint Launches Affordable New ‘Carbine Optic’ Red Dot

 

 

 

” Aimpoint is getting into the entry-level market — entry level for Aimpoint, anyway — with its new ACO red dot sight. The ACO, or Aimpoint Carbine Optic, is tailored for the “black rifle” crowd, AR-15s in particular.

  The design draws on some of Aimpoints existing products, chiefly the Aimpoint PRO, the company’s previous entry-level optic, and delivers on the ruggedness and reliability the market has come to respect from Aimpoint, just at a more approachable price.

  With an MSRP of $393, the ACO is sure to be a hit with rifle owners of all stripes looking for a non-magnified optic. Realistically the sight will have a significantly lower retail price when it hits shelves later this October.

“ By choosing this optic, shooters get a premium Aimpoint sight at an extremely friendly price point. If you own an AR-15 rifle, the ACO is exactly what you need to complete the package,” Brian Lisankie, Aimpoint’s president, said in a press release. “

Flint Mother Grateful For Pistol-Packing Neighbor, Bystanders Who Saved Daughter From Alleged Attack

 

 

 

 

 

” The mother of a woman who told police she was attacked inside an eastside home said she is thankful for neighbors who rushed to her daughter’s aid, including a man who held the alleged attacker at gunpoint then chased him down and helped hold him until police arrived.

” She got lucky,” said the woman’s mother, who is not being identified to protect the identity of the woman. “If it wasn’t for all these people who cared enough to help her, and not turn the other cheek like so many people would, my daughter would be dead right now.”

  Jessica Abels, who lives near the spot on Cronk Avenue near Illinois Avenue where the woman was found walking bloodied and naked, said she looked out the window when she heard a woman screaming for help around 2 p.m. Sept. 26.

The FBI’s Bogus Report On Mass Shootings

 

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s disheartening to see the FBI used to promote a political agenda, but that’s what we got with the bureau’s release last month of a study claim to show a sharp rise in mass shootings, a la Newtown, Conn.

  The FBI counted 160 “mass” or “active” shootings in public places from 2000 to 2013. Worse, it said these attacks rose from just one in 2000 to 17 in 2013. Media outlets worldwide gave the “news” extensive coverage.

  Too bad the study is remarkably shoddy — slicing the evidence to distort the results. In fact, mass public shootings have only risen ever so slightly over the last four decades.

  While the FBI study discusses “mass shootings or killings,” its graphs were filled with cases that had nothing to do with mass killings. Of the 160 cases it counted, 32 involved a gun being fired without anyone being killed. Another 35 cases involved a single murder.

  It’s hard to see how the FBI can count these incidents, which make up 42 percent of its 160 cases, as “mass killings.” They plainly don’t fit the FBI’s old definition, which required four or more murders, nor even its new one of at least three murders.

SWAT Team Shot David Hooks At Home After Tip From Meth Addict

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Deputies shot and killed a man inside his Georgia home last month following an apparently bogus tip they received from a confessed meth addict and thief.

  East Dublin resident David Hooks, 59, was killed because, according to Laurens County Sheriff Bill Harrell, he aggressively brandished a gun at the SWAT team that broke in his back door. But Mitchell Shook, a lawyer for Hooks’ widow, contends that the sheriff has misled the public about the shooting and raid, which turned up no drugs.

  The sheriff’s office obtained a search warrant based on a tip from a thief who claimed he had found 20 grams of methamphetamine inside a bag he stole from a vehicle at Hooks’ home, Georgia station WMAZ reports. According to the warrant, Rodney Garrett claimed that he thought the bag was filled with cash but that he later discovered it contained meth. Garrett said that he then turned himself into the sheriff’s office because the drugs made him fear for his safety.

  Garrett, a known drug abuser, also stole a second vehicle, a SUV, from the Hooks home.

  Sheriff’s deputies raided the home without identifying themselves, Shook said, contrary to their claims that they told Hooks they were officers with a search warrant. The sheriff’s office had also said they fired at Hooks for aggressively pointing a gun at them near the back door, but Shook alleges that the deputies blindly shot at Hooks through a wall without knowing who was there.

  When Hooks’ wife saw men in dark clothing heading for their home at 11 p.m. on Sept. 24, she woke up her husband and told him that the thieves who had stolen their SUV were back. Hooks grabbed a gun and headed to the door, according to Shook.

  Deputies shot more than 16 times, Shook said in a statement.

  Authorities searched Hooks’ home for 44 hours, but found no drugs, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Hooks’ family says that he didn’t use drugs or sell them. They say he ran a successful construction company.”

10 Common Concealed Carry Mistakes ( Video )

 

 

 

 

 

” None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes from time to time, it’s how we learn. However, making mistakes when concealing a firearm can have serious implications. Instead of making you learn by trial and error, I’ve compiled a list of 10 common mistakes so you don’t have to find out the hard way. Most of the mistakes I’ve listed are made by those still new to carrying concealed, but even those with years of experience can be guilty of making a couple of these mistakes from time to time.

 

1. HAVING THE MINIMUM REQUIRED TRAINING

  In many states, a hunter safety course is enough to qualify you for a concealed weapons license. However, these courses often focus solely on being safe with a rifle in the woods. Although it’s great to know you’re not allowed to shoot over a road the next time you go hunting, it doesn’t exactly prepare you to go out into the regular world and interact with others now that you all of a sudden have a gun on your hip.

  Even some classes that are specifically designed around qualifying you for a concealed weapons permit don’t do much in the way of preparing you. Do your research before choosing a class and find a reputable one that is more concerned with proper training rather than getting you out of the course as quickly as possible. The course concerned most about money will often go through some of the basics, have you shoot a few rounds, and send you on your way. You want a course that has instructors who are going to help you in every way possible to make sure you leave their class prepared.

  Finally, don’t think that just because you met the minimum requirements for a license you’re now ready to navigate every situation you find yourself in. A responsible person who carries concealed is constantly learning, both mentally and physically. As legendary football coach Bo Schembechler often said, “Every day you’re getting better or worse…you never stay the same”.

 

2. PRINTING/EXPOSING

  Printing, where the outline of your gun appears from pushing against your clothing and exposing a part of the gun are mistakes that often arise from complacency. When you first start carrying, often you’re so concerned about your gun showing in public you’ll do anything and everything to make sure it never happens. After carrying every day for years, it’s still a thought but you’re nowhere near as scared of it happening. Just take that extra second to make sure you’re not printing or going to expose your gun at some point.

  Honestly, most people are pretty ignorant to their surroundings anyways, but it certainly isn’t worth the trouble of someone freaking out if they do notice because you didn’t want to bother changing your 2 sizes too small shirt. Although some people are extremely concerned about printing, it’s not the end of the world if it happens at some point (although it may be illegal in some localities). It’s certainly not something to get into the habit of doing, but compared to exposing your gun, printing is nowhere near as big a concern. If your gun is exposed, you could find yourself in some serious hot water. The last thing you want to deal with is half the police station closing in on you with guns drawn because you bent over to pick something up and the lady behind you happened to notice your gun.

  Trust me, if someone sees your gun and they’re scared, the 911 call won’t be a rational explanation of what happened. Take your time to make sure you’re not printing or in danger of exposing your gun before you leave the house.”

Bar Patron In Texas Now Wanted On Felony Charges 

 

 

EJ's Shooting

 

 

” A TX man who frequents a particular bar is being sought after he shot and killed two of four armed robbers that came into the bar just after closing Saturday morning. The armed patron ignored TX state law that prohibits carrying a firearm in an establishment where alcohol is served.

  This man is currently being sought by police, and will likely face felony charges. Other bar patrons, however, are speaking out about this man’s good deeds and feel that he did the right thing.

  After shots were fired, the patron left, probably due to the fact that he was breaking the law. “

” Two men were fatally shot by a customer after they attempted to rob a north Harris County bar early Saturday — the latest in a fury of shootings in Houston this week.

  Jenny O’Donnell, owner of EJ’s Place, said four armed men came to her bar in the 16400 block of Kuykendall at Colwell, around 2:30 a.m.

  O’Donnell, who was not there at the time of the incident, said a head bartender and waitress were closing up for the night when two men walked into the bar and demanded everyone get down on the floor. Two other men “lingered at the bar door,” she said.

  That’s when a customer at the bar pulled his own gun and started shooting at the men, she said. The attempted robbers fired at least three rounds inside the bar, said O’Donnell.

” That man was a hero,” said O’Donnell. “We could have had some bodies.” “

Guns Welcome At These Restaurants

 

 

 

 

” Lauren Boebert, mother of four and owner of the Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colo., didn’t plan on becoming the poster girl for open-carry gun laws.

  But after a man died violently in the alley behind her grill last year, she started packing a pistol at her restaurant.

” I’m a small girl and I wanted to protect myself, my employees and my customers, if needed,” said Boebert, who waits tables with a Springfield XD sub compact semi-automatic handgun holstered to her hip. She also allows other waitresses and customers to openly carry their guns in her restaurant.

  The Shooters Grill is not alone. Other restaurants around the country are celebrating openly carrying a firearm in public by offering a discount to customers who bring their guns, or by selling tchotchkes that declare their support for guns.

” Guns are welcome on the premises,” read the T-shirts and coffee cups peddled on the web site of Shiloh Brew and Chew in Maryville, Tennessee. “Please keep all weapons holstered unless need arises. In such case, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”

  Other restaurants, including All Around Pizza and Deli in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Bergeron’s Boudin and Cajun Meats of Port Allen, Louisiana, and The Cajun Experience in Leesburg, Virginia, are offering discounts to pistol-packing patrons.

” If you’re exercising your Second Amendment rights, you get 10 percent off,” said Bryan Crosswhite, who hosts “Second Amendment Wednesdays” at The Cajun Experience. He also runs an organization for gun-supporting businesses called 2amendment.

  Not everyone thinks it’s a great idea. Boebert and Crosswhite both said they received death threats from people they described as anti-gun.

  These family-run restaurants are going in the opposite direction of corporations like Target, Starbucks, Chipotle, Sonic, Chili’s and Panera, which recently told their customers that guns are not welcome in their stores and restaurants.”

“ I just need to see a weapon,” owner Kevin Cox said. “I need you to be carrying a gun.”

The Assault Weapon Myth

 

 

 

” OVER the past two decades, the majority of Americans in a country deeply divided over gun control have coalesced behind a single proposition: The sale of assault weapons should be banned.

  That idea was one of the pillars of the Obama administration’s plan to curb gun violence, and it remains popular with the public. In a poll last December, 59 percent of likely voters said they favor a ban.

  But in the 10 years since the previous ban lapsed, even gun control advocates acknowledge a larger truth: The law that barred the sale of assault weapons from 1994 to 2004 made little difference.

  It turns out that big, scary military rifles don’t kill the vast majority of the 11,000 Americans murdered with guns each year. Little handguns do.

  In 2012, only 322 people were murdered with any kind of rifle, F.B.I. data shows.

  The continuing focus on assault weapons stems from the media’s obsessive focus on mass shootings, which disproportionately involve weapons like the AR-15, a civilian version of the military M16 rifle. This, in turn, obscures some grim truths about who is really dying from gunshots.

  Annually, 5,000 to 6,000 black men are murdered with guns. Black men amount to only 6 percent of the population. Yet of the 30 Americans on average shot to death each day, half are black males.

  Democrats decided to push for a ban of what seemed like the most dangerous guns in America: assault weapons, which were presented by the media as the gun of choice for drug dealers and criminals, and which many in law enforcement wanted to get off the streets.

  This politically defined category of guns — a selection of rifles, shotguns and handguns with “military-style” features — only figured in about 2 percent of gun crimes nationwide before the ban.

  Banning sales of military-style weapons resonated with both legislators and the public: Civilians did not need to own guns designed for use in war zones.

  On Sept. 13, 1994, President Bill Clinton signed an assault weapons ban into law. It barred the manufacture and sale of new guns with military features and magazines holding more than 10 rounds. But the law allowed those who already owned these guns — an estimated 1.5 million of them — to keep their weapons.

  The policy proved costly. Mr. Clinton blamed the ban for Democratic losses in 1994. Crime fell, but when the ban expired, a detailed study found no proof that it had contributed to the decline.

Should it be renewed, the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement,” a Department of Justice-funded evaluation concluded.

  Still, the majority of Americans continued to support a ban on assault weapons.

  One reason: The use of these weapons may be rare over all, but they’re used frequently in the gun violence that gets the most media coverage, mass shootings.

  The criminologist James Alan Fox at Northeastern University estimates that there have been an average of 100 victims killed each year in mass shootings over the past three decades. That’s less than 1 percent of gun homicide victims.

  But these acts of violence in schools and movie theaters have come to define the problem of gun violence in America.

  Most Americans do not know that gun homicides have decreased by 49 percent since 1993 as violent crime also fell, though rates of gun homicide in the United States are still much higher than those in other developed nations. A Pew survey conducted after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., found that 56 percent of Americans believed wrongly that the rate of gun crime was higher than it was 20 years ago.”

 

 

    While the Times shows quite clearly the depth of the public’s erroneous beliefs regarding the nature of the demonized “assault weapons” , nowhere does it acknowledge it’s and it’s fellow MSM compatriot’s responsibility in creating that public misconception in the first place .Read the whole thing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seven Months Later, Orange County Concealed Carry Permits Have Doubled

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Last February, the Ninth Circuit Court Of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over most of the Western United States, ruled that California’s concealed carry law was unconstitutional. The provision in the law stating that one must give “good cause” for a concealed carry permit was deemed too burdensome–and they’re right!

  After the ruling, Orange County saw a spike in concealed carry permits. It got to the point where the county had to spend an additional $1.6 million–and hire 14 part-time staffers–to process all the applications.

  At the time, Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said she wasn’t going to add more scrutiny to the concealed carry permit process. If you’re a law-abiding citizen and apply, you’ll get your permit. “

This Sheriff Makes HUGE Threat if Barack Obama Takes Our Guns

 

 

 

MD Sheriff

 

 

 

 

” Wicomico County (Maryland) Sheriff Mike Lewis is fighting back against the gun grabbers who are using recent high-profile shootings to push for anti-gun legislation. He explained that bad guys shouldn’t have guns. But for many law-abiding Americans, gun ownership is a way of life.

  And what happens when government tries to disarm Americans?

  Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis, a sheriff in the state of Maryland, recently reminded the citizens of his county that he will not violate the Constitution and warned the federal government that any attempt to disarm Americans will result in an all-out Civil War.

“ I made a vow and a commitment,” Lewis said. “As long as I am sheriff of this county, I will not allow the federal government to come in here and strip my citizens of the right to bear arms.” “

“The Heroes Of The Right Of Self Defense”

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s a blog post by Prof. Nick Johnson of Fordham Law. He discusses Otis McDonald and Shaneen Allen (who faces a mandatory three year jail term for having driven into NJ with a firearm for which she had a PA permit to carry concealed).

” So another rhetorical question: Why have the nominal champions of civil rights ignored Otis McDonald and the self-defense interests of the sober, mature members of the Black community he represented?

  The search for answers highlights priorities wildly out of whack. Compare the relative non-acknowledgment of Otis McDonald with the broad consternation over how Black criminals are treated. Michelle Alexander’s acclaimed book calling the state of Black incarceration the “new Jim Crow” illustrates this….

  A final question, and this one is not rhetorical: Will the people who invoke the power and rhetoric of civil rights to condemn the disparate treatment of heroin and crack dealers, come to the rescue of a law-abiding Black woman whose crime was misunderstanding the multilayered bureaucracies that restrict the federally-guaranteed constitutional right to arms? “
