Disabled Boy Records Bullies Tormenting Him, Police Charge Him With Illegal Wiretapping






” After a disabled special education child tried to record how bullies were tormenting him at school, the police in Pennslyvania responded by slapping him with the charge of felony wiretapping.

  Back in 2012, the Huffington Post documented the new trend of parents having their disabled children wiretapped based upon abuse from teachers and bullying students alike. Although some organizations like the National Autism Association “strongly suggest” using recording devices if they suspect a problem, others like the National Association of Special Education Teachers say that secret recordings are a bad idea based upon legal issues and the privacy rights of other children. In the worst case scenario, the children being bullied might themselves get in trouble under the law. Unfortunately, this is apparently exactly what happened.

  The disabled boy in this new incident was not named specifically, but his mother’s name is Shea Love, and she did not demand that her son record what the bullies were allegedly doing to him. The 15-year-old boy was previously diagnosed with a comprehension delay disorder, ADHD, and an anxiety disorder. The boy claims he was constantly being bullied at his school, and in order to prove to his mother that he “wasn’t lying” he decided to use his school-issued iPad to record the bullying: “

Muskogee Man Shaken After Killing Burglary Suspect



Okie Burglar Dead



” Muskogee Police are still looking for two men who tried to rob people inside a house late Saturday night; a neighbor shot and killed the third suspect.

  Kyle Ford said the men were threatening him and he had no choice but to fire his gun.

  Muskogee Police say it looks like Ford clearly acted in self-defense and a criminal defense attorney we spoke with said Oklahoma law protects anyone who feels their life is in danger.

” If I would not have had my gun I don’t believe that I would be here today to tell you the story about it,” Ford said.

  Ford said he was scared for his life Saturday night.

  Muskogee Police said suspect who died has been identified as Joshua Salyer, 40, of Muskogee.”

How The Civil Rights Movement Changed Black Gun Culture




” The subject of guns is a volatile one in the black community: a disproportionate number of black Americans are killed by firearms each year.

  But Nicholas Johnson, a law professor at Fordham University in New York City, says black Americans have a long, positive history with guns. Firearms, he says, helped black Americans escape slavery, defend their homes and fight for their freedom. It was only after the civil rights movement that the public attitude towards guns started to change.

  He explores the hidden relationship between African Americans and firearms in his book Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms.”



   Thanks to the BBC for bringing this to light . Along with the civil rights movement came the social programs aimed at aiding the black community , which in reality have done nothing but generate a culture of dependency on the government , a loss of self-esteem and a permanent democratic voting bloc .

“You are alive. You have an inherent right to stay alive. A gun is a tool. You have the right to wield it to preserve your life when under threat,” Tourianski says.”

LI Man Facing Manslaughter Charge For Shooting, Killing Alleged Armed Burglar



New York Sucks … Self-Defense



” Family members have been arguing that it was a clear case of self-defense when a Huntington Station man shot and killed an alleged home burglar.

  But Youssef Abdel-Gawad has been charged with manslaughter, even though he said he was only trying to protect his family, WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reported Tuesday.

  The family hopes surveillance video will clear their son, CBS 2’s Jennifer McLogan reported.

“ It’s a sad situation,” said the defendant’s brother, Ramy Abdel-Gawad. “Video will show, you know, he was doing what anybody would do to protect his family.”

  The Abdel-Gawads’ own surveillance cameras were rolling at the home, according to police, at the time of the incident back on Aug. 21 of last year.”



    We assume that because the suspects were put to flight before the fatal shot that the LI police are maintaining that the danger was past and thus the situation did not merit the discharge of the shotgun . Ok . But if that be the case then shouldn’t all police be suspect whenever they shoot a fleeing suspect ?

   According to the report , the DA doubts that the perp fired a shot but isn’t the presence of the gun reason enough for an act of self-defense ? Since when do the thugs have a right to the first shot for free ?

   When we were younger there was a policy (unwritten or official ?) that police could only shoot in self-defense or in the face of imminent peril for others . That no longer seems to be the case as we read all the time of cops shooting at perps in flight . If it’s ok for them then why not for civilians defending their homes and families ?


Apparently the Supreme Court’s Tennessee v Gardner ruling in 1985 cleared the way for cops to shoot people in the back if the had committed a felony and if that is the justification for law enforcement , surely the civilian populace should be afforded the same rights , no ?

Dismantling The Stigma Of Guns


Participants in Vernon's two-day conceal-and-carry course spend a full day in the classroom before heading to the firing range. - JOHN STURDY


” Interest in gun ownership has been growing across the country. The FBI conducted more than 21 million background checks of potential gun buyers in 2013, the most since the system was put into place in 1998. In Illinois 1.7 million people currently have firearm owner identification cards issued by the state police, including more than 150,000 in Chicago, up 30 percent since 2011.

  Illinois, and Chicago in particular, has historically had some of the most restrictive gun regulations in the country—from 1982 until 2010 it was illegal to possess a handgun in the city—but the laws are changing. Last July, under orders from a federal court, the General Assembly passed a law making Illinois the 50th state to allow residents to carry firearms in public. The state police began accepting conceal-and-carry permit applications in late December, and by late January nearly 33,000 had been approved pending background checks. Residents from rural areas downstate have signed up at the highest rates, but nearly a fourth of the applications came from Cook County.

  Vernon has been a firearm owner and activist for decades, but he doesn’t fit the stereotype of a gun nut. He’s a middle-class African-American who lives on Chicago’s south side. A former university administrator, he’s studied civil rights history for decades. A framed photo of Malcolm X hangs in the living room of his modest home. He voted against Mitt Romney in the last presidential election—though he can’t quite bring himself to admit that he cast a ballot for President Obama.”

Open Carry Little Rock Arkansas


Little Rock Open Carry



” Taking on the task of educating the public in spite of a hostile media has fallen to Arkansas Carry,  a group that has been organizing marches featuring the open carry of arms to show that such is legal throughout the state.  Some local media are beginning to understand that the law actually says what it says.   From arkansasmatters.com:

LITTLE ROCK, AR- Saturday one of the many open carry walks being staged across the state went off without a hitch.

More than 100 gun toting Arkansans walked through down town Little Rock.”


These walks around the state stem from a dispute in the interpretation of Act 746 between law-abiding gun owners and the state’s anti-gun Attorney General Dustin McDaniel . The Baxter Bulletin offers this report …



” “I do not interpret Act 746 as authorizing so-called open carry,” McDaniel wrote in his legal opinion. “To the contrary, the journey exception applies only to ‘travel beyond the county in which a person lives’ — a narrow range of activities inconsistent with the concept of open carry.”



Pistol Packing Judge

” While Pendergrass — who, in this week’s developing major local story, has endorsed his right and that of employees with the Baxter County Road and Bridge Department to carry concealed weapons on the job — disagrees with McDaniel’s legal opinion, it is Mountain Home Police Chief Carry Manuel who may first have to deal with the question locally.”



The act itself reads in part :



 SECTION 1. Arkansas Code § 5-73-119(e), concerning defense to  prosecution for possession of a handgun in certain places, is amended to read as follows:

 (e) It is a defense to prosecution under It is permissible to carry a handgun under this section that if at the time of the act of possessing a handgun or firearm:

 (1) The person is in his or her own dwelling or place of business or on property in which he or she has a possessory or proprietary interest, except upon the property of a public or private institution of higher learning;

(2) The person is a law enforcement officer, correctional officer, or member of the armed forces acting in the course and scope of his or her official duties;

 (3) The person is assisting a law enforcement officer,correctional officer, or member of the armed forces acting in the course and scope of his or her official duties pursuant to the direction or request of the law enforcement officer, correctional officer, or member of the armed forces; 

 (4) The person is a licensed registered commissioned security guard acting in the course and scope of his or her duties;

(5) The person is hunting game with a handgun or firearm that may be hunted with a handgun or firearm under the rules and regulations of the Arkansas State Game and Fish Commission or is en route to or from a hunting area for the purpose of hunting game with a handgun or firearm;

 (6) The person is a certified law enforcement officer;

 (7) The person is on a journey beyond the county in which the person lives, unless the person is eighteen (18) years of age or less;.

 (8) The person is participating in a certified hunting safety course sponsored by the commission or a firearm safety course recognized and approved by the commission or by a state or national nonprofit organization  qualified and experienced in firearm safety;

 (9) The person is participating in a school-approved educational course or sporting activity involving the use of firearms; or

(10) The person is a minor engaged in lawful marksmanship  competition or practice or other lawful recreational shooting under the supervision of his or her parent, legal guardian, or other person twenty-one (21) years of age or older standing in loco parentis or is traveling to or from this activity a lawful marksmanship competition or practice or other  lawful recreational shooting with an unloaded handgun or firearm accompanied by his or her parent, legal guardian, or other person twenty-one (21) years of age or older standing in loco parentis. “

Beretta’s Blog Offers These Words Of Advice From A Woman

On Buying A Carry Gun For A Woman





” It seems men are more interested than ever in getting the ladies in their lives involved in shooting sports and self-defense. In their eagerness, they don’t always consider the fit, size, and function of guns, much less the tastes of their significant others. Here is what some women may have to say to their husbands regarding their expert choice of side-arms.

Dear husband,

  I’ve tried and tried to explain to you that I need to go choose and purchase a concealed carry gun. For some reason, you aren’t hearing my plea. I’m certain you understand the need to defend myself and our family. I’m not sure you recognize other facets that go along with my need to choose my own gun.

  I am a better shot than you, even with that over-sized, heavy gun you chose for me. Thanks to it, I now have huge shoulders and my spine is curved from attempting to lug it around in my purse. I have no fear of an assailant stealing said purse: it weighs too much.  It’s sure to bring him to the ground in an instant.”

SC Gov. Haley Signs Bill Allowing Concealed Carry In Bars, Restaurants



” South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed S.308, the Concealed Carry Reform Bill, into law on Tuesday.

  The bill, among other improvements, allows concealed-carry permit holders to practice their Second Amendment rights in places that serve alcohol.

“ In an effort to preserve South Carolinians’ 2nd Amendment rights, the bill allows for gun owners with a Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) to carry firearms in restaurants that serve alcohol, while also allowing an owner to ban individuals from carrying firearms in their establishment,” said a press release  on the event.’


Contrary to what the fear-mongers would have one believe , this is not an anti-business law , as businesses are free to choose whether they desire armed patrons or not .


” Moreover, establishments that serve alcohol are given the choice of whether they want to allow patrons to carry on their premises in the first place. They can ban concealed carry by simply posting signs that say “No guns allowed.”

Sheriff: Son Shoots Burglar ToSave Father’s Life During Stand-Off






” The homeowner also observed a Dodge pickup and flatbed trailer parked in the dark on the road near his house. The man saw the pickup truck was running with the keys in the ignition. He entered the suspect’s truck, turned the engine off and removed the keys. Suddenly, the suspect appeared and a confrontation ensued. The suspect managed to get the man’s rifle away from him, assaulting the man in the process.

  The homeowner’s son, awakened by the gunshots, saw the young male suspect raise the rifle and, fearing the suspect was about to shoot his father, shot the suspect, killing him instantly.
” We are a nation of laws. Our law protects the law-abiding citizens of our nation,” said Van Zandt County Sheriff Lindsey Ray. “It is unfortunate that a young man had to die this morning in our community because of a bad decision he made to violate the rights of a law-abiding citizen.” “

Man Charged With Killing Burleson County Deputy No Billed by Grand Jury



” A Burleson County Grand Jury declined to indict the man who shot and killed a Burleson County Sheriff’s Deputy who was serving a search warrant in December.

  Investigators were executing a search warrant at Henry McGee’s mobile home near Snook when the shooting happened.

  News 3 takes a look at why deputies had targeted McGee’s home.

  28-year-old Henry Magee is no longer charged in the shooting death of Burleson County Sheriff’s Deputy Adam Sowders.

  A grand jury decided there wasn’t enough evidence for him to stand trial on the capital murder charge.

  McGee admitted to shooting Sowders before sunrise on December 19th while the deputy and other investigators were serving a no knock search warrant for drugs at McGee’s mobile home near Snook.

  Magee’s Defense Attorney Dick DeGuerin says his client thought someone was breaking into his home and fired to protect his pregnant girlfriend and himself.

” Well we feel that the grand jury acted fairly and reasonably and had all of the information that it needed to make the decision that it did. That is that this was a justified shooting and, but we need to say that this is a tragedy,” Dick DeGuerin said.”
