Afghan Mother Kills 25 Taliban Fighters In Seven-Hour Gun Battle After Watching Her Son Slain In Ambush

 

 

 

 

 

” A bereaved Afghan mother took revenge on the Taliban after watching them kill her son in an ambush. Reza Gul killed 25 Taliban fighters and injured five others in a seven-hour gun battle in Farah province.

  Gul, who was joined by her daughter and daughter in-law, engaged the Taliban using AK-47s and grenades, despite never before having used a weapon.

  The embattled mother told Tolo news, a 24-hour Afghan news broadcaster, she was awakened by shots early Tuesday. After seeing that her son had been killed, Gul and the other two women fought back.

“ I couldn’t stop myself and picked up a weapon,” Gul told Tolo News. “I went to the check post and began shooting back.”

  Seema, her daughter-in-law, added: “The fighting was intensified when we reached the battlefield along with light and heavy weapons. We were committed to fight until the last bullet.”

  Gul said that the battlefield was covered in Talib fighters after the deadly exchange ended.

  While the Taliban have not publicly commented on the incident, the Afghan government labeled it a symbol of a public uprising against the Taliban.

  Taliban and other groups have regained large swathes of the country as U.S. and NATO forces slowly pull out troops after 14 years of war. The Taliban have targeted government and foreign infrastructure as the group attempts to claw back power it lost in 2001.

  While the Taliban have made key gains in rural regions, members continue to employ suicide bomber tactics in well protected towns and cities. Earlier this week, 50 people were killed after a suicide bomber detonated a vest during a volleyball competition in Yahyakahil, Paktika province.

  That particular attack prompted President Ashraf Ghani to order a complete overview of the country’s defense forces and to rethink the ban on nighttime raids, which were outlawed by his predecessor, Hamid Karzai. “

” An Afghan mother claims to have killed 25 Taliban militants and injured several others after she found her son, who was a police, dead in a fierce gun battle with the insurgents at his check post in western Farah province.

” Reza Gul” the Afghan mother who rushed to take revenge of her son’s death stood behind an armament and claimed the lives of 25 insurgents.

  Woken up by the gunfire, Reza Gul told TOLOnews that she had no other option but to pick up a weapon after she found her son, who was the in charge of an outpost, dead in front of her eyes.

” It was around 5 a.m. when my son’s check post came under the attack of Taliban,” Gul said. “When the fighting intensified, I couldn’t stop myself and picked up a weapon, went to the check post and began shooting back.”

  Few minutes later, Gul was not alone when she found her husband, daughter, youngest son and daughter-in-law holding weapons and accompanying her in the fight against the insurgents.

” The fighting was intensified when we reached the battlefield along with light and heavy weapons,” said Seema, Gul’s daughter-in-law. “We were committed to fight until the last bullet.”
The fighting lasted several hours with 25 insurgents dead and many others wounded, she added.

” We started a kind of family war against the Taliban,” Fatima, daughter of Gul said, adding that she was personally preparing bullets for her father and mother to fight off the enemies.
Gul’s husband Abdul Satar stated they were ready to sacrifice the entire family, but not allow the Taliban to get closer to the check post.”

Police Shooting Of Pre-Teen In Cleveland Caught On Surveillance Video That Contradicts Cops Claims

” Last week police in Cleveland shot and killed12-year-old Tamir Rice, claiming the boy tried to pull a (fake) gun out of his pants when ordered to put his hands up. The interaction was instigated by a 911 caller who said he saw someone with what was a “probably fake” gun.

  Now surveillance video appears to contradict police claims, as it shows the police officer shooting Rice immediately after getting out of a moving patrol car.

  There could be more than 300 million (real) guns in America, and an infinitesimally small proportion are used to commit crimes. Politically expedient fearmongering over guns, however, can lead to frivolous 911 calls that, in combination with trigger-happy yet largely immune cops, can be fatal. “

” Two FBI agents were shot and wounded at a house in north St. Louis County early on Wednesday, though the incident was “not directly related” to racially charged unrest in and around nearby Ferguson, an agency spokeswoman said.

One agent was shot in the shoulder and the other was shot in the leg while assisting local police in executing an arrest warrant, FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu said in a brief statement. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

“The incident is not directly related to the Ferguson protests,” Wu said, but did not elaborate further. “

Lakewood Police Arrest Man In Home-Invasion Where Robber Killed

 

Washington Home Invader Kolled

 

 

 

” Lakewood police have arrested a 19-year-old man they believe participated in a home-invasion robbery that left one of the suspected robbers dead.

  Duprea Wilson of Seattle was charged Thursday with 12 felonies, first-degree manslaughter, robbery, kidnapping and assault among them.

  Three men knocked on the door and then forced their way inside when the man, who didn’t recognize them, tried to close the door, police said. One of the intruders was armed with a knife, another with a gun.

  They beat the man, who needed stitches to close a head wound, and cut his wife’s hand after dragging her out of the bathtub, court records show. The intruders then tied up the couple before searching the house for valuables, police said.

  At one point the robbers went outside, and the man was able to free himself and lock the front door. He and his wife then retreated to their bedroom and locked that door as well, court records show.

  The bandits broke through the front door, firing a shot as they did so, the records show. The man retrieved his own gun from a lock box and fired two shots when a pair of the bandits forced the bedroom door open, court records show.

  An hour or so later in Federal Way, police were called to the scene of a dead man with gunshot wounds in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Lakewood police believe that man, 19-year-old Taijon Voorhees, was one of the home invaders. “

” If you could only buy five long guns, which specific long guns should you buy – and why?

  Here, we’ll answer that question in detail:

1. Ruger 10/22 .22 LR

  This is simply the most successful .22 semi-automatic rifle in production. First introduced in 1964, the Ruger 10/22 has gained a stout reputation for being durable, reliable, accurate and easily customizable. In fact, the Ruger 10/22 is the second-most easily customizable long gun on the market, second only to the AR series of rifles.

  The 10/22 comes equipped with a 10-round magazine, but after-market 25-round banana magazines and even drum magazines are highly available for greater capacity.

  If you can only have five long guns, you need a .22 rifle — without question. Semi-automatic .22s are always a good choice due to their high capacity, and they’re enjoyable to shoot. Another popular and reputable .22 rifle is the Marlin 60; however, the Marlin 60 is tube-fed, resulting in slower reloading times and less capacity, and is also nowhere near as customizable as the 10/22.

2. Mossberg 500 Field Combo 12 gauge

  The Mossberg 500 field combo shotgun is one of the most versatile shotguns available. A field combo kit comes with two barrels: an 18.5-inch barrel for self-defense and a 28-inch vented rib barrel for hunting and target shooting. The two barrels are very easy to interchange, essentially giving you a two-in-one package. The 12 gauge is also the most popular shotgun round on the market, so if you’re going to stock up on shotgun shells, the 12 gauge is without question the one to buy first.

  Ultimate Tactical Self-Defense And Hunting Weapon That Doesn’t Require A Firearms License!

  The Mossberg 500 is one of the most popular and reputable pump action shotguns ever produced, and is intended for use in harsh conditions. It is second in popularity only by a razor thin margin to the Remington 870 in America. The 870 also comes in field combo kits, so why the Mossberg and not the Remington?

  Though personal preference is always the deciding factor, there are a few factors that arguably push the 500 just over the 870 in my view. The Mossberg 500/590 series is known for being the only pump action shotguns to pass the US Army’s Mil-Spec 3443E, which is a brutal torture test of putting more than 3,000 buckshot rounds through each shotgun in harsh conditions. The safety on the 500 is also naturally ambidextrous as it is placed on the top-rear portion of the receiver rather than the rear of the trigger guard of the 870. Lastly, there have been some reports that the Remington 870 series has seen a dip in quality in recent years. While these reports are all people’s opinions and millions of Americans still swear by their 870s and will for the decades to come, the Mossberg 500 remains a solid pump shotgun in today’s market.

3. Colt AR-15 5.56x45mm.

  The most popular rifle sold off the shelves today is the AR-15, and for a variety of reasons: inexpensive ammo, ergonomics, high-capacity magazines, availability of parts, low recoil, and accuracy. The AR-15 is also perhaps the most versatile rifle on this list. It can be used for hunting (an AR-10 .308 would be better for larger game such as elk), is an excellent combat weapon, and in all regards, is a modern-day musket. All of the roles that were fulfilled by the musket in the Colonial-era have been fulfilled by the AR-15 in today’s modern age.

  There are dozens upon dozens of different manufacturers of high quality AR-15s, but Colt has been making AR-15s for decades and they are held in high regard today. Colt makes a variety of different AR-15 models and variants, with some having different features than others.

4. Winchester 1894 .30-30

  The most popular sporting rifle in American history is the Winchester 1894 in .30-30, one of John Browning’s greatest rifle designs and a top seller for Winchester. The .30-30 lever action is a very handy rifle to have and has become an American icon. The .30-30 is a popular American round allowing for availability of ammo and is also known for being an excellent deer hunting round. The 1894 itself is a very slim but robust rifle. This makes it an excellent truck gun, as well as for a light rifle to pack while scouting or hiking out in the woods.

  Lever-action rifles can be easily customizable to give them a more tactical appearance and function in stark contrast to the more classic appearances from the Western days. While the Winchester 1894 should not take the place of your AR-15 as a primary combat weapon in today’s era, it’s still a neat and handy little rifle that is often overlooked.

5. Winchester Model 70 .30-06

  Just like the 1894, the Model 70 is a legend and has always been a top seller for Winchester.  Winchester Model 70s, especially the pre-64 editions, are widely regarded as some of the highest quality production rifles ever made. The Model 70 has rightly earned the now well-known nickname “Rifleman’s Rifle.”

  The .30-06 is one of the most prolific and enduring rifle cartridges ever sold in America. It’s an excellent hunting round that can be used on both medium and large game. You couldn’t ask for a more high quality hunting rifle than a scoped Winchester Model 70 in .30-06.

Akai Gurley: Black Man Shot And Killed By Police, Stepfather Angry At Accident

 

 

 

 

 

” Mr. Akai Gurley, a 28-year-old black man from Brooklyn, was shot and killed this week by a new police officer in what is being called an “unfortunate tragedy.” Yet Gurley’s stepfather is understandably angry about the accident, saying he is “p***** off,” and the New York community at large also seems full of unrest over the situation. Canada Journal News shares the latest on this breaking story this Saturday, November 22, 2014.

  While leaving a housing complex, Akai Gurley was said to be fatally shot. He was unarmed and involved in no criminal activity at the time, confirms the report. It seems in this sad case that the black man was killed by a rookie cop for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but not everyone is so sure. Gurley was leaving the Brooklyn apartment with his girlfriend by his side; this particular housing area where the accident occurred is known for its high crime rate.”

9-1-1 Caller Says Gun Held By Cleveland 12-Year-Old Shot By Police Was ‘Probably Fake’

 

 

 

 

 

”  The man who called 9-1-1 before a 12-year-old boy was shot by police told dispatchers the gun was “probably fake.”

  The man told police he was at the park near Cudell Recreation Center and could see “a guy with a pistol” on the swing set pulling the weapon from his pants and “scaring the s–t out of everyone.”

” There’s a guy with a pistol, and it’s probably fake,” he said quickly, “but he’s pointing it everybody.”

  When police arrived, a group of people were sitting around a table under a gazebo next to the rec center’s parking lot. A rookie officer in the car saw the pistol sitting on the table, and watched the boy grab it and put it in his waistband, Jeff Follmer said.

  The officer got out of the car and told the boy to raise his hands. Instead, police said, the boy reached into his waistband and grabbed the pistol.

  The officer fired two shots, at least one of which hit the boy in the stomach.

  The boy was rushed to MetroHealth Medical Center in serious condition, though his condition was not immediately known Saturday night. “

Three Wounded In Florida State University Shooting, Gunman Killed

 

 

 

 

 

” A gunman opened fire at a Florida university library, leaving three people wounded before campus police shot him dead early on Thursday, police said.

  Officers confronted the attacker outside Florida State University’s Strozier Library, ordered him to drop his weapon, then shot him dead when he opened fire on them, Tallahassee police said.

  Three people were wounded, police spokesman David Northway told reporters, without giving further details. A nursing supervisor at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare hospital said medics were treating two victims for gunshot wounds.

  Graduate student Alexandra Lauren told CNN that she was in the library at the time of the shooting.

” We heard the gunshots, and then it was in a matter of seconds the entire first floor just seemed to go into chaos,” Lauren said, her voice wavering.

” It was very scary. I’m just more heartbroken than anything else. FSU means a lot to me,” she added. “

No. 1 Rifle Wins Third GARC Contest

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The No. 1-ranked West Virginia University rifle team defeated Great American Rifle Conference (GARC) foe No. 16 Ole Miss, 4699-4568, today, at the Tronsrue Marksmanship Center, in West Point, N.Y.
  WVU (5-0, 3-0 GARC) won both disciplines, outshooting the Rebels (0-3, 0-2 GARC) in smallbore, 2328-2238, and air rifle, 2371-2330.
“ There were definitely some who struggled today,” said coach Jon Hammond. “We ended with a solid team score. The range conditions with different lighting made it challenging, but they all fought hard throughout.”
  Freshman Elizabeth Gratz placed first in smallbore with a career-high 584 (194 kneeling, 200 prone, 190 standing) mark. Her 200 prone score matched a school record, last shot by Jean-Pierre Lucas on Nov. 8 against Memphis.
“ Elizabeth has worked really hard in practice and is learning a lot about herself and how to perform,” Hammond explained. “Her matches have been great, and to make progress each one is really impressive.”
  Senior Thomas Kyanko placed second with 583, while junior Michael Bamsey placed third in the discipline with 581. Senior Ziva Dvorsak followed in fourth shooting 580.
 
  Gratz, Kyanko, Bamsey, Dvorsak and junior Garrett Spurgeon (576) completed the Mountaineer counting squad.
 
  Placing first in air rifle, Dvorsak scored 596 (99-100-99-100-99-99). Gratz and Rebel shooter Ali Weisz tied for second with 593 scores, while senior Maren Prediger placed fourth with 592.
  Kyanko and sophomore Jean-Pierre Lucas finished fifth with 590 scores.
  Dvorsak, Gratz, Kyanko, Prediger and Bamsey (589) contributed to the air rifle victory.
  Today’s victory pushes WVU to 10-3 all-time against the Rebels.
  The Mountaineers continue their season with another conference match against GARC foe No. 12 Army, tomorrow, Nov. 16, at the Tronsrue Marksmanship Center.
“ They will have to work hard and focus on their performance tomorrow,” Hammond said. “There are adjustments they can make and they may be more ready, but it will still require good focus and hard work.” “

10 Best Bolt-Action Rifles Of All Time

 

 

10 Best Bolt-Actions

 

 

 

” Hundreds of different bolt-action rifles originated in Europe and the United States, and today hunters have a wide selection of turnbolt rifles to meet every hunting situation and budget. The modern bolt-action rifle is lighter and more accurate than at any time in history. Over the past several years there have been numerous upgrades to bolt-action design in the form of synthetic stocks, improved finishes and better machining, but today’s rifles remain very much true to original designs.

  A few bolt-action designs stand out as the best in history. Some have a reputation for rock-solid dependability, some have become hunting field favorites, and others have revolutionized bolt gun design. Certain guns, such as the Winchester Model 70, have been the basis for a number of other, later designs that have also been successful. Others, such as the Remington Model 700, have become so widely accepted by shooters and hunters that you’ll find one in virtually every hunting camp in the country. However, all of these guns, have earned a place in history as the best bolt guns ever created.

  Here’s a look at the 10 best bolt guns of all time. Be sure to vote for your favorite and enter the debate! “

Cuomo’s Gun Law Plays Well Downstate But Alienates Upstate

 

 

 

 

” In large stretches of upstate New York, it is the reason Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is deeply unpopular. To many voters in New York City and its suburbs, it is one of his crowning achievements.

  Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, made New York the first state to pass a broad package of new gun laws after the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., in 2012. Seizing a singular political moment, he called it the Safe Act, and he implored Congress to follow his lead.

  Nearly two years later, as he seeks a second term, Mr. Cuomo presents the act to his supporters as one of his greatest successes, and Democrats are assailing the governor’s Republican challenger, Rob Astorino, for being lax on guns. It remains one of the most far-reaching pieces of gun-control legislation passed in response to the Newtown shooting.

  But in pushing for passage of strict new gun laws, Mr. Cuomo alienated a vocal constituency across upstate New York, a region he has otherwise wooed. In court, gun owners have challenged the constitutionality of the laws; on lawn signs and bumper stickers in places like the Catskills and western New York, they demand their repeal.

 Counties, towns and villages have passed resolutions denouncing the laws, and some counties have even demanded that their official seals not be used on any paperwork relating to them. In response to an open records request, the governor’s office shared hundreds of pages of such resolutions, from far-flung places like the Adirondack town of North Hudson, with 238 residents, to more populous areas like Erie County.

The calculation when it was passed was people were going to get mad for a little while and then get over it,” Stephen J. Aldstadt, the president of the Shooters Committee on Political Education, said. “I don’t think people are getting over it.” Despite its scope, the Safe Act was not everything it was originally intended to be, and there were stumbles. A provision limiting the size of gun magazines, for example, turned out to be unworkable.

  Thirty-two days after the shooting in Newtown, on Jan. 15, 2013, Mr. Cuomo signed the act into law. The measure included an expanded ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, as well as a broader requirement for background checks, and tougher penalties for gun crimes.”

The students in the Broken Bow district, however, have to abide by a few rules, reports the Omaha World-Herald: Gun photos must be “tasteful and appropriate,” which means no aiming at the camera and no photos that include an “animal in obvious distress.” “

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. “

” A terrifying Tuesday morning in a Roy neighborhood turned tragic when police officers shot and killed a man in his garage at 3779 West, 5300 South in Roy. The Weber County Attorney’s Office is investigating it as a “suicide by cop.”

  The 35 year old man, who neighbors describe the as a quiet, friendly man, was divorced and now lived in the home with his girlfriend and her children.

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. “

Here is a more detailed accounting of the attack from the Ottawa Citizen

 

 

” John McKay, another Liberal MP, says a librarian in Parliament told him she saw shooter walking through halls with rifle

  Witnesses to the War Memorial shooting described a man pull up in a car in front monument just before 10 a.m., get out with a rifle and started firing shots at the soldiers standing guard.  About five or six shots were fired.

  The soldier fell on the steps at the foot of the Cenotaph, where bystanders and paramedics provided emergency medical care. The soldier, believed to be a man in his 30s, was taken to hospital by ambulance suffering from gunshots to his abdomen. His condition is unknown.

  Witnesses said the man got back into the car, raced up Elgin Street and parked on Wellington Street in front of a gateway to the Hill.  The man wore what one witness described as an “Arabic scarf”  and was carrying what was described as a long rifle.

  Police warned bystanders downtown that the shooter was still on the loose. The suspect is described as 5-9 to 5-10, overweight and wearing a dark jacket. “

Girls Leading Way In New Gun Trend As Parents Tell Anti-Gun Lobby To Back Off

 

 

Elise Downing, Monica Woodhouse, and Erika Dwyer are all expert shooters at the Belmont G

 

 

Queensland schoolgirls are picking up guns in record numbers.

  Recreation and competition shooting associations are reporting a surge in junior members, particularly girls, a trend that is firing up Gun Control Australia which is pushing for a ban on under-18s handling firearms.

  The Sporting Shooters’ Association of Australia has several thousand Queensland children as members and president Geoff Jones reports a recent spike in girls’ involvement.

  There is a similar trend in competition shooting. In 2010, 18 per cent of Queensland Target Shooters juniors were female. This year one third are girls. In Queensland, kids aged 11 and over can obtain a minor’s gun license.

  Gun Control Australia has urged a Senate inquiry into firearms to lift the legal age to 18, a move that shooting bodies and parents warn will end Australia producing elite shooting champions.

“ The reason why so many parents are happy to have their kids involved is because they see the rigid safety protocol,” Mr Jones said. “We have a great reputation for safety in Australia and we are reaping the rewards of that in junior participation. There is only one live round in the gun, kids use age appropriate weapons – no semi-automatics – and there are step-by-step safety rules.”

  Jamie Webb, who coaches kids at national and state level in target shooting, said: “Anti-gun lobbyists will put an end to the country’s participation in the sport and it makes no sense. The levels of safety for our shooters is the best in the world and I know of no dangerous incidents.”
