Pizza Delivery Man Attacked, Then Shoots Would-Be Robber

” They messed with the wrong pizza guy.

  A gang of robbers attacked a pizza deliveryman just before 10:30 p.m. Monday as he brought food to a house in the 400 block of Cornwall Avenue, near Erie County Medical Center.

  In the front hallway of the house, one of the robbers, who wore a mask and had a brown hoodie pulled over his face, hit the pizza man on the head with a hammer, according to police. The masked man also displayed what appeared to be a gun, police said.

  But then, the delivery man told investigators, he pulled out his own handgun and fired a shot, striking the masked man. The rest of the gang scattered.

  DeJuan Coleman, 18, of Deerfield Avenue, was under police guard at ECMC in fair condition Tuesday, recuperating from gunshot wounds to the upper right arm and abdomen. He has been charged with first-degree robbery.

  The pizza deliveryman, whose name is being withheld by Buffalo police for safety reasons, was treated for head cuts and bruises as well as a left hand injury suffered in the robbery attempt. Police said his gun was properly registered.”

Haslam’s ‘Policy Maneuver’ Kills Tennessee’s Open-Carry Bill

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Last week the Tennessee Senate passed SB2424 by a landslide vote of 25-2 last week. The bill would allow Tennesseans to openly carry handguns without a state-issued permit.

  It’s reported the governor’s administration attached what was called a “$100,000 anchor” to the pending open-carry bill that’s stalled the legislation.

  The reason for the cost would cover the state’s vendor to modify the design of the handgun permit cards. They would remove the open-carry language from the layout of the card. State permits currently allows Tennesseans to either carry openly or concealed. It’s reported the state has already pretty much finalized it’s budget and ”shoehorning the extra expenditure into its ledger is unlikely.

  Haslam’s move goes against the apparent stance he took while campaigning for governor in 2010. Knoxnews.com reports:

“ The final days of that campaign were dominated by the furor created by candidate Haslam after he told the Tennessee Firearms Association that he would sign legislation into law to eliminate Tennessee’s requirements for carrying handguns in public.”

New York Gun Owners Face ‘SAFE Act’ Registration Deadline

 

 

Noncompliance

 

 

 

New York gun owners who possess firearms classified as assault weapons under a new state law have until the end of Tuesday to register their guns — or face potential criminal charges.

  The requirement is part of a provision of New York’s so-called SAFE Act, the package of tighter gun restrictions signed into law  in Albany months after the Sandy Hook school massacre. The law broadened the state’s “assault weapons” ban to cover more kinds of semiautomatic weapons.

  Gun owners who lawfully possessed guns that are now on the banned list were allowed to keep their weapons, but had to register them with the state police. They were also given the option of selling their guns to a licensed New York dealer or out-of-state buyer by Jan. 15 of this year.

  Those who fail to comply could face a misdemeanor charge or — if they were already disqualified from owning a gun because of a prior criminal conviction or other reason — a potential felony.

  Some gun owners say they have no intention of obeying the edict, reports the Daily Gazette of Schenectady:

  Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey said he has attended pro-gun rallies in the Capital Region over the past year at which thousands of people from across the state said they do not plan to register their assault weapons.

“ So many people have said they won’t register their guns. I haven’t been told personally, but I’m sure there are some people who have not registered in Fulton County and some who have,” Lorey said. “But I think everyone who plans to register their weapons has already done so.”

 

   Do not expect huge lines at your local State trooper barracks , as Sheriff Lorey says , whoever is going to register has most likely already done so , and we’ll wage it’s damn few .

Exclusive: Sources Inside The BLM and Las Vegas Metro Say Feds Are Planning A Raid On Bundy Home

 

 

Ben Swann  Richard Mack BLM Raid

 

 

 

” As reported yesterday, hundreds of federal agents are still at the Bundy Ranch and the area continues its status as a no-fly zone. Despite major media reports that the Nevada Bureau of Land Management is retreating, the remaining activity that still surrounds the ranch illustrates a different scenario.

  Not only is the BLM not actually backing off of Cliven Bundy, Sheriff Richard Mack of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association has revealed stunning information: on Ben Swann’s radio program, Mack said that he has received intelligence from multiple, credible sources inside the BLM and the Las Vegas Metro that there is “no question” that the federal government is planning a raid on the Bundy home and the homes of their children who live on the property.

  According to Mack, the so-called retreat was nothing more than theatrics. “It was a ploy to get people to back off, to get people out of the way. They weren’t expecting us to get this amount of people here. They were surprised by the numbers and so they wanted a way to get us out of here. This was a ploy to get us out of here and then they’re going after the Bundys.”  Mack said that when he was at the Bundy ranch on Saturday there were an estimated 600 to 800 protesters present when federal agents were releasing the cattle.”

” Police said a knife-wielding robber was outgunned when he tried to rob homeowners on Monday.

  The 92-year-old World War II veteran and his 89-year-old wife were more than a handful for the alleged attacker.

  Investigators said Robert Kelly Jr. talked his way into a home in the 8800 block of Monsanto Drive, where he had previously done odd jobs.

  Ruby Mathis and Hugh Mathis said they thought they were helping someone who lives right in their neighborhood but it almost backfired.

“ He stuck the knife out there and said ‘Give me your money,’ and I said ‘You go to hell!’” Hugh Mathis said.

“ They were talking real low, and I came in to see what it was and when I did he was standing in front of Hugh with a knife saying, ‘Give me the money out of your pocket,’ so when I heard that I ran to the bedroom and got the gun,” Ruby Mathis said.”

Register Nothing

 

 

” In the April issue of Townhall Magazine, Bearing Arms editor Bob Owens asks what would happen if a liberal government passed a new gun law but nobody obeyed it?

  Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) signed what the Hartford Courant called “the toughest assault weapons legislation in the nation” last year. It required owners of semi-automatic firearms to register all firearms designated as “assault weapons” with the state government, along with any “high capacity” magazines they may own, by December 31, 2013.

  The Malloy regime expected Connecticut residents to register somewhere between 372,000-400,000 firearms, and roughly 2 million firearm magazines that held more than 10 rounds before January 1.

What they got instead was defiance. “

 

 

 

     And as Bob points out , the results in New York , while not quite finalized , are likely to be even more dismal for the Statists in Albany .

 

 

 

” A nearly identical problem is brewing next door in the much larger, more populous state of New York, thanks to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s hastily-passed NY SAFE Act. That law demands that New Yorkers register their semi-automatic “assault rifles” with the government by April 15.

  While Connecticut is thought to have something less than 400,000 firearms classified as “assault weapons” under their law, New York is thought to have as many as 1 million firearms meeting New York’s revised criteria.

  Cuomo faces an even bigger registration problem in New York than Malloy did in Connecticut because many of New York’s sheriffs are in near open revolt against the SAFE Act, and have stated publicly that they will not enforce it. While they have been less publicly vocal, New York State Troopers have quietly indicated that they, too, will do as little as possible to enforce the law.”

March The Second Biggest Month For NICS Background Checks

 

 

nics010311

 

 

 

 

” March was the third biggest month for firearm background check numbers in the National Instant Criminal Background Check systems history, according to numbers release by the FBI. That number changes when data is adjusted, Guns.com reports.

  According to the data, across the country 2,488,842 total background checks were performed  in March 2014, which is up by about 200,000 from one year ago and by about 400,000 from February.

  Additionally, March 2014 had three of the 10 highest number of checks in a single day, and the first two weeks of the month ranked in the top 10 for highest weeks for gun background checks. “

However, if the raw number is adjusted by subtracting out NICS purpose code permit checks used by several states such as Connecticut, Illinois and Utah for CCW permit application checks as well as checks on active CCW permit databases, it actually becomes the second highest March in NICS history, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the industry’s lobby.

Army Goes To War With National Guard, Seizes Apache Attack Helicopters

 

 

 

 

” All of the Guard’s AH-64 Apache helicopters are scheduled to go to the active Army, and there’s nothing its top brass can do about it.

“ None of us like what we’re having to do,” National Guard Chief Gen. Frank Grass told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, the military website Defense One reported. “My big concern right now is figuring out how I’m going to move, and how many states I’m going to have an impact on, and what’s the cost of facilities and to retrain pilots. I’ve got to tackle that because the decision’s been made.”

  Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno told members of Congress on Tuesday that the move will save $12 billion through fiscal year 2017, Defense One reported.

  When the logistics are worked out, the Army’s fleet of OH-58 Kiowa helicopters will be divested, its newly acquired Apaches will fill its reconnaissance and scouting needs, and the National Guard will be given UH-60 Black Hawks.”

     Anybody who believes this is about saving money is deluded . This is a power grab pure and simple . While the Feds go about disarming the State guard units so as to deny the states any offensive air assets in the event of an “emergency” , the same Dept of Defense continues to up-armor local police departments with billions in free ordnance .

    Here’s a cost saving idea General , how about you sell the excess MRAPS to allies , thus keeping them out of podunk towns across America and use the proceeds to let the National Guard to keep the Apaches . These ongoing deployments and re-deployments appear to be “battle space preparation” on the part of the Feds .

    Looking at this situation from another angle , the disarming of the Guard plays right into the Obama administration’s continued efforts to destroy American readiness . The Guard has played a pivotal role in the “War on Terror” for the past decade and now the fliers will be unable to train . Just another sop to our enemies as King Obama softens us up for his terrorist cronies .

14 Governors : Prepare State Militia Defenses, To Be Ready Against Obama’s Rogue Federal Forces

 

” Obama fearing a revolution against him by the states, has moved swiftly by nationalizing nearly all National Guard Forces in multiple states; Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Louisiana, South Carolina – to name a few. The Governors of the Great States of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia still have under their Command-and-Control the State Defense Forces to go against U.S. Federal forces should the need arise. Also important to note: There are NO U.S. laws prohibiting National Guard troops from also joining their State’s Defense Forces. This dilemma occurred during the Civil War with many “citizen soldiers” choosing to serve their states instead of the Federal Government.”

‘Expect To See A Band Of Soldiers’: Militia Members Arrive At Nevada Ranch

 

 

 

 

” Militia groups are rallying behind a rancher whose cattle are being seized by the federal government.   The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that two militia members from Montana and one from Utah have arrived at Cliven Bundy’s ranch. “ We need to be the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants,” Ryan Payne of the West Mountain Rangers told the Review-Journal. “Expect to see a band of soldiers.”   Payne said that militias from New Hampshire, Texas and Florida are likely to join and stand with Bundy and stay at his ranch. “ They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” Payne told the Review-Journal, adding that hundreds of militia members are expected.”

Cops: Winter Haven Homeowner Fatally Shot Intruder

 

Winter Park Home Invader Killed

” A Winter Haven homeowner shot and killed an intruder who broke into his family’s home Monday morning, police said.

  Homeowner Luis A. Pena, 54, first fired a warning shot to deter the burglar, but the man continued to work his way through the back door of the home on Lake Marianna Drive.

  The intruder — identified as 40-year-old Mitchell G. Large — charged at Pena, who shot the man in the torso at least once, police said.

  Pena’s family also armed themselves with guns to ward off the intruder, police said.”

An Assault Weapon Gambit Backfires

 

 

Black Rain

 

 

 

 

” As the Daily News recently reported, gun manufacturer Black Rain Ordnance has produced, with great fanfare and borderline glee, a modified AR-15 assault rifle that complies with the strict gun law pushed through by Gov. Cuomo in 2013, the SAFE Act.

  Proudly labeling the firearms “New York Compliant” rifles, the company’s website boasts 17 different models that hold the state legal maximum of 10 bullets.

  While billed by Black Rain Ordnance as an in-your-face response to what the company says is New York’s “continual trampling of the Second Amendment,” that’s just marketing hype aimed at those unhappy with the law.

“Make a political statement, buy our gun!” would be one translation.”

Here is a sample of the Statist Daily News’s thinking …

” Think a little harder, and this gunmaker’s logic backfires badly. The production of Black Rain, in fact, proves that the SAFE Act is not only no actual threat to gun rights, but is a perfectly reasonable law.

 

   Wrong oh pompous Government Shill , the fact that Black Rain can engineer , manufacture and market a rifle of similar performance to the traditional AR-15 within the confines of the SAFE Act demonstrates beyond dispute the capricious , arbitrary and idiotic nature of the legislation itself .

 

 

 

” Even for two guys sitting at a table, the technology was simple. And putting it together made clear that Cuomo’s goal is reasonable: to make prolific firing more difficult by having a permanently attached magazine, and limiting the number of bullets it can hold without reloading.”

 

 

    In another glaring error , Professor Spitzer is incorrect in thinking that the Black Rain “NY Compliant” rifle has a fixed magazine . Not true Prof … while the gun is sold with a NY legal 10 round mag it will accept ANY AR-15 magazine on the market of which there are millions , if not hundreds of millions in domestic circulation . 

   Let us not dwell on the magazine error , surely the learned professor got the rest of the facts right , he is after all , part of our noble “elite” . He continues thus …

 

 

” Two-thirds of the nation’s 300 million guns are long guns, representing hundreds of makes — and while assault weapons have been big sellers in recent years, estimates from 2012 peg the total number in circulation nationwide at about 4 million.”

 

 

   Who’s estimates would they be Mr Spitzer ? Here is some data on NICS checks run by the FBI from Nov 1998 to Jan 2012 . Now we’ll admit that not every check results in a sale but conversely not every approval results in the sale of only one firearm .

    Here is the FBI’s monthly breakdown of all NICS background checks by state from 1998 through March of this year , and here is the data on NICS denials from the same period …

     A quick reading of the charts and a little math , not Common Core , real math , reveals a rejection rate of less than 1% or to be precise 0.7023669976087205 % . That leads us to the conclusion that at least 155 million guns have been sold between late 1998 and the present .

    If two thirds of those were long guns to use the professor’s own number , that means 103,333,333 million long guns were sold domestically during the period in question and if we take a low ball figure of even 1% of long gun sales being comprised of AR type weapons that still gives us a total more than two and one half times his 4 million figure . 

    We have deliberately used a low number in our estimation yet some data from ATF suggests that AR sales as of 2008 anyway made up 22% of all rifle sales . Ponder the total number of AR’s in circulation if you use the 22% figure Professor .

    

 

 

 

” The BATFE recently released U.S. firearm manufacturer production data showing that during 2008, AR-15s 
accounted for eight percent of all firearms and 22 percent of all rifles made in the U.S. and not exported. 
The number of AR-15s in 2008 — over 337,000 — is staggering, but may have been topped in 2009. And, 
at the current rate of production, the total number of AR-15s in the U.S. will exceed 2.5 million some time
this year, and that doesn’t even count production before 1986, the figures for which are not available.

 … the numbers of AR-15 manufacturers and the AR-15s they produce are at all-time highs. AR-15s have been popular for decades and that popularity is growing in leaps and bounds for a variety of reasons. Innovations relating to defensive rifle use now center on AR-15 carbines. Bar none, the AR-15 in its various configurations is the leading marksmanship training and competition rifle in the country, and there are more kinds of training and competition opportunities built around the AR-15 than ever before. And the advent of new cartridges that 
fit the AR-15 platform, and which are legal for hunting deer-sized game in most states, are rapidly making 
the AR-15 one of the most popular hunting rifles in the country.”

 

    Last but not least one needs to consider the fact that there are other millions of semi-auto “military style” rifles of non-AR type that are currently held by private citizens as well . Ruger alone has sold nearly a million mini-14′s and that doesn’t take into account other manufacturers like HK , Springfield Arms , FN , Kalashnikov , Galil and many others . 

    Of course all of these are impacted by the ban and do nothing to skirt Cuomo’s draconian “middle of the night” knee-jerk legislation , we merely point out the facts to show the futility of the State notion of mandating safety and the wisened old Ivory Tower denizen’s efforts to help .

    If we were betting individuals we would put our money on the 10 million total over Spitzer’s 4 million number all day long .

Noncompliance: Over 90 Percent Of NY Gun Owners Refusing SAFE Act Registration?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” With the April 15 deadline for gun registration under the SAFE Act fast approaching, estimates indicate over 90 percent of gun owners have yet to comply.

  Making matters worse for elected officials–and Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) in particular–is the fact that many law enforcement officers at various levels have openly stated that they will not enforce SAFE Act requirements

  According to BearingArms.com, while the state waits for the “registration of 1 million firearms designated as ‘assault weapons’ under the NY SAFE Act,” leaks believed to be coming from within the New York State Police indicate the number registered to date is “as low as…3,000-5,000 firearms.

  This is figure is impossible to verify beyond a shadow of doubt because a provision in the SAFE Act forbids law enforcement from releasing registration figures. “

Federal Snipers Train Guns On Family For Filming Cattle

Cliven & Carol Bundy

Carol & Cliven Bundy – Enemies Of The State

” Federal snipers with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) trained guns on members of a family yesterday after they dared to stop and take video footage of cattle outside the bounds of a designated “First Amendment Area,” before arresting one of the men for non-compliance.”

” The cattle were being rounded up by BLM officers as part of a crackdown on Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who has refused to pay “grazing fees” demanded by the feds as a result of a re-classification of 600,000 acres of federal land in northeastern Clark County which Bundy claims has been in his family for generations.

  Some fear the dispute could turn into a Ruby Ridge-style violent standoff because Bundy has said he is prepared to become a martyr for what he perceives as a constitutional stance against tyranny.”

   

    How ironic that Mr Bundy’s plight at the hands of the Federal Army comes to our attention just one day after posting an article about the exponential growth of armed Federal agencies that need no guns , unless they have designs on war with the citizenry , which apparently IS their goal as witnessed above .

Kansas Lawmakers OK Bill To Void Local Gun Rules

 

 

Kansas-bill-will-prohibit-local-gun-laws-img

 

 

” Kansas legislators gave final approval Saturday to a bill that would nullify city and county gun restrictions and ensure that it’s legal across the state to openly carry firearms, a measure the National Rifle Association sees as a nationwide model for stripping local officials of their gun-regulating power.

  The House approved the legislation, 102-19, a day after the Senate passed it, 37-2. The measure goes next to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback. He hasn’t said whether he’ll sign it, but he’s a strong supporter of gun rights and has signed other measures backed by the NRA and the Kansas State Rifle Association.

  Kansas law doesn’t expressly forbid the open carrying of firearms, and the attorney general’s office has in the past told local officials that some restrictions are allowed. The Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan., has prohibited the practice, but the bill would sweep any such ban away, except to allow cities and counties to prevent openly carried weapons inside public buildings.”

” An artists collective has unfurled a massive poster showing a child’s face in a heavily bombed area of Pakistan in the hopes that it will give pause to drone operators searching the area for kills.

  According to #notabugsplat, named after the description given to kills on the ground when viewed through grainy video footage, the artists – with help of villagers – unfurled the giant poster in a field in the Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa region of Pakistan.

  The hope is that it will increase awareness of drone operators of human cost, or ‘collateral damage’, when drones are used to attack targets on the ground.”

Some Videos From The Web From CCDL Rally @Hartford Statehouse Saturday April 5th

 

   We are still trying to process our large collection of photos from the pro-gun rally in Hartford this weekend . WordPress does not seem to like our high resolution photos very much as it takes in excess of twenty minutes to upload a single photo . We are thinking that perhaps we should host the pictures elsewhere and just post a link to them . Does anyone have any helpful hints to offer ? Should we use Imgur , Instagram , photobucket ? 

   Any advice would be very welcome as up to this point we have not tried to post many of our own original photos at one time . We are open to all suggestions as we have a couple hundred photos from the event and while many are similar we would prefer to post them all and let our readers decide which to view . 

   Another question for the masses: We are starting to photoshop and desire to label our original photos with a YouViewed tag . Up til now we have put text on each photo individually and this is very time consuming . Does anyone know if we can save our “YouViewed.com” layer in Photoshop and simply add it to each photo instead of having to type it out and arrange the type size and location on each photo ?

Patriot beats Gun Grabbers Ass Hartford Connecticut

” Drone quietly spies on Gun owners at Connecticut pro 2nd amendment rally Saturday April 5.

  Connecticut citizens and many Gun Right advocates from nearby states such as Massachusetts, Rhode Island, NY, NH and NJ stood shoulder to shoulder in support of the second amendment of the United States yesterday on the steps of the Connecticut state capitol building on April 5, 2014. Chants of freedom and disgust with certain CT law makers for using the SandyHook tragedy as a tool of tyranny to rush threw unconstitutional laws making certain firearms and magazines a federal offense in the state. “We The People” will not relinquish are 2nd amendment rights. As free citizens of this country, to defend ourselves and are families against any criminal elements with the firearms we do choose . When you try to use tragedy to empose tyrannical laws you end up with the year 1775. Let’s not let these so called “progressives” take us back in time before The Constitution state had a Constitution and a second amendment that protects all the other amendments. Stand with Connecticut gun owners Americia!!! “

    Warning Shot Bill Passes Senate Floor

     

     

     

     

     

     

    ” The Florida Senate has approved the so-called ‘warning shot’ bill, which now heads to Gov. Rick Scott to be signed into law.

    The bill passed 32-7 on Thursday.

      Sponsored by Sen. Greg Evers, a Republican from Pensacola, the bill has garnered attention due to the Marissa Alexander case in Jacksonville. Alexander is out on bail and awaiting a new trial after originally being sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a gun near her estranged husband during an altercation.”

    Legalize Concealed Carry For Soldiers On Military Installations

     

    Petition To Arm Soldiers

     

     

    ” Our hearts are saddened to learn of yet another shooting on a military installation in the United States. Yet again, service members who train regularly to responsibly handle firearms were murdered on base and were unable to defend themselves.

      Concealed carry policies provide not only an appropriate means for self defense against violence, but also a proven deterrent. Our military installations have become “soft” targets for those who would harm our military members. Lawful, concealed carry by responsible service members could have prevented or lessened the severity of these incidents.

      The DoD should set forth CCW regulations permitting service members in good standing who have received firearms training to carry concealed firearms on DoD installations.”

     

         As ridiculous as this sounds it is for real . Military installations are among our most vulnerable facilities in the country whereas they should be quite the opposite . Sign here .
