Everytown Shoots Itself In The Foot

 

 

 

 

 

 

” I am reliably informed that the folks over at Michael Bloomberg’s gun-control outfit, Everytown, believe earnestly that the above commercial makes the case for stricter gun control. The intended message, presumably, is: “We need to keep guns out of the hands of violent men with restraining orders.” A laudable aim, in and of itself.

  Does this come across? Not really, no. What the video ends up doing instead is demonstrating a) that people who are willing to abduct children and shoot women in the face are not likely to follow the laws (the victim already has a restraining order out against her assailant, which frankly doesn’t seem to be doing much); b) that the victim would have been better off with a gun in her hand than with a phone connected to the police department; and c) that, firearms being a great equalizer between men and women, any rules that make it difficult for potential victims to get hold of guns (and make no mistake: Everytown supports them all) put vulnerable people in danger.”

    While everyone can agree that we would like to eliminate domestic violence , as Katie Pavlich points out , the woman in this video has a much better chance of survival than does the woman waiting for the police to respond to her 911 call .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    Which do you suppose is better able to defend the life of a woman alone , a restraining order or a pistol ? You are free to choose … keep it that way .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How To Go From 0 To 300 Days In Jail In Under 60 Seconds

 

 

 

” This video shows the hilarious moment a woman talked her way into a 300-day prison sentence for contempt of court.

  Ebony Burks, 32, appeared in Elyria Municipal Court, Ohio, accused of domestic violence and assault. Speaking to her over video feed, judge Gary Bennett told her she was not to have contact with either of the victims involved.

  Burks took issue with the fact she would not be able to contact or see her grandfather, Shedrick McCray, because she lived in his house.

  After she lost her cool, Burks was initially handed down 30 days by Judge Bennett. But as she continued to argue and speak aggressively towards the judge, he gradually increased the prison sentence.”

Louisiana Family Rescues Bloodied, Kidnapped Woman From Ex-Lover

 

 

” A Louisiana family decided to take justice into their own hands on Friday — and it was all captured on camera.

Marcus Arceneaux cradled his frightened niece, Bethany Arceneaux, in his arms as he tenderly placed her in a car. Blood ran down Bethany’s face and she held a cloth to her neck to stem the flow. But she was home. She was safe.

And her family had reportedly killed her torturer.

Bethany’s two-day ordeal began on Wednesday evening when her ex-boyfriend, Scott Thomas, took her hostage. The 29-year-old from Duson was the mother of his child and allegedly a victim of years of domestic abuse at his hands.”

Police Shot Unarmed Man, Drove An Armored Truck Through His Door When He Did Not Exit His Property On Command

 

 

 

” A paramilitary force was dispatched to a townhouse after a woman reported a domestic dispute between her and her boyfriend.  When her boyfriend stubbornly chose to stay inside his home, police shot him and drove an armored truck through his front door.

The situation began on August 29th around 2:40 p.m. when John Geer — a 46-year-old kitchen designer and installer — was told by his girlfriend that she had decided to leave him.  The couple had two daughters together, ages 13 and 17.  Emotionally distraught over the breakup, Geer exacerbated the situation by throwing her belongings onto the lawn of their townhouse.

This led to her calling the police.  She informed the dispatcher that he owned a firearm.  A SWAT team was sent to the quiet cul-du-sac.”

 

 

 

 

” Geer’s home was surrounded by armored vehicles and uniformed personnel.  A police sniper was photographed lying prone in a neighbor’s yard aiming toward Geer’s residence.  Men in helmets and military fatigues cordoned off the neighborhood.  Police began making their demands.  An armored truck a topside gun turret parked in his yard and prepared for a strike command.  As time went on, helicopters whirred overhead and K-9 units were seen by neighbors.

“We’re just here to help you — come out with your hands up,” recounted neighbor Edith Eshleman, of the police negotiations.

Fairfax County police officers spent approximately 40 to 50 minutes communicating with Geer, insisting that he either let them in his home or that he exit into their custody.  He did neither.  Geer was “a very stubborn man,” according to one of his relatives.

Geer’s girlfriend and two teenage daughters had already left when the negotiations came to an abrupt conclusion.  An officer shot Geer through a screen door as he stood facing outward at them.  Geer closed the door and retreated into his house.”

 

 

” Refusing to be forced from your home or to allow agents of the state to enter without a warrant is not an offense punishable by execution. And though his mental state was, in the words of his friend Jeff Stewart, “emotionally wrecked that day,” the antagonistic response from the state cannot be touted as a positive outcome by any reasonable standard.”

 

 

   As you can see , the original news report was very misleading and could easily give the viewer the impression of police confronting an armed individual who perhaps fired on them . We now know that was not the case , but did that impression originate from the press reporter himself of the police ?

   So now the mere suspicion of possession of a gun is reason enough to kill a man . Welcome to Police State USA . You can read more on this continuing story of police killing here , here , here , here and here .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nevada Family Says Police Occupation of Homes Violated the Third Amendment

 

” You don’t often hear about lawsuits based on the Third Amendment, the one that says “no soldier shall in time of peace be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law.” That usually overlooked provision is cited in a federal lawsuit recently filed by Anthony Mitchell and his parents, Michael and Linda Mitchell—an oddity for which we can thank the Henderson, Nevada, police department.

The Mitchells, who live in separate houses near each other in the Las Vegas suburb, were forcibly evicted from their homes on July 10, 2011, by police officers responding to a domestic violence report involving one of their neighbors. Here is how it all started, according to the complaint:”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Surprising Ad-Campaign In Saudi Arabia Against Domestic Violence

” Riyadh – A charity run by the family of an ex-king in Saudi Arabia has begun a campaign against domestic violence with a well designed advert showing a battered women dressed in a niqab. The text says ‘Some things can’t be covered.’

 
The King Khalid Foundation is a charity established by the family of the late King Khalid, who ruled the country from 1975 until his death in 1982. While the charity has various projects it finances and brings to fruition, this latest campaign against domestic abuse of women is not the first concerning this problem. Earlier, the foundation was also involved with promoting a Women and Child Abuse Prevention Law.”

It’s Not Just ABC And WashPost Who’ll Skip Finding That Majority Of Women Feel Guns Make Home Safer

 

 

 

 

” On April 18, a new Washington Post/ABC News poll that showed 51% of Americans feel that guns in the home make it safer, compared to 29% who think otherwise. More telling is that fact that 51% of white middle class women agree with the sentiment about firearms making homes safer.  Additionally, a Nexis search detailed that ABC News has yet to report this poll, and, with the exception of the Fix blog, the Post avoided the “guns make a home safer” findings.

So, will there a correction to Jill Filipovic, Amanda Marcotte, and Co. for trying to smear the NRA as the “domestic abuse lobby? The article by New York Times’ Michael Luo that set off this meretricious commentary on guns looks like to have been a smear too far.  After all, it wasn’t “intense pressure” the gun lobby that killed Obama’s anti-gun agenda.  It was white middle-class women, who liked their Second Amendment rights to be left untouched by big government.

Concerning the feminist left, last month Jill Filipovic, a liberal feminist, wrote for Al-Jazeera that:

The latest group to have their gun ownership rights championed by the NRA? Domestic abusers.

Forty percent of women who are murdered in the US are killed by intimate partners. Guns are the cause of more than two-thirds of those domestic violence homicides, killing more victims than all other weapons combined. When an abuser has access to firearms, his victim is eight times more likely to be killed by him. The simple presence of a gun in the home makes any woman 2.7 times more likely to be murdered. And an abuse victim having access to a gun does not make her any less to be killed by her partner.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boston Bomber Could Have Been Deported After 2009 Arrest

 

 

 

” One of the Chechen terrorists who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings could have been deported years ago after a criminal arrest and/or conviction and the other was granted American citizenship on the 11th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old killed in a wild shootout with police, was a legal U.S. resident who nevertheless could have been removed from the country after a 2009 domestic violence arrest and conviction, according to a Judicial Watch source. That means the Obama administration missed an opportunity to deport Tsarnaev but evidently didn’t feel he represented a big enough threat.

Other reporting confirms Tsarnaev’s arrest for domestic violence but we’re seeking confirmation of a conviction. Nevertheless he would have been subject to removal for the arrest itself.  

Years before these Chechen terrorists carried out the Boston Marathon bombings Judicial Watch uncovered critical intelligence documents detailing al Qaeda’s activities in Chechnya, including the creation of a 1995 camp—ordered by Osama bin Laden—to train “international terrorists” to carry out plots against Americans and westerners.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biden Implies “Garden Variety Slap Across the Face” of a Woman is No Big Deal

 

 

 

 

” You’d think someone in the Democratic public relations complex would have sent out a memo asking Democrats to stop spouting off about rape, guns and domestic violence by now but, it clearly hasn’t happened. Speaking today at a “1is2many” domestic violence awareness event sponsored by the White House, Vice President Joe Biden implied certain types of domestic violence aren’t really that bad because they’re just a “garden variety slap across the face.”

One hit is too many, unless of course it’s just a “garden variety slap accross the face.”

Update: This article was written based on NRO’s edited clip of Joe Biden’s remarks on domestic violence. As is reflected in the full quote below, Biden condemns all violence. However, using the phrase “garden variety slap” to describe certain types of domestic violence was insensitive and trivial.”

 

 

 

 

 

SE Cupp on The Bob Costas Idiocy

 

 

 

 

 

Blame The Men, Not The Guns

” But in the case of Jovan Belcher, the Kansas City Chiefs player who shot his girlfriend and then killed himself, it’s all too easy to ignore the bigger story of domestic violence and train everyone’s attention on the gun instead.

Costas quoted Jason Whitlock, a sports writer who once compared the NRA to the Ku Klux Klan, blaming “gun culture” for Perkins’ death:

“Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it.”

Ascribing human capabilities to an inanimate object — endowing handguns with the ability to “tempt us” into murder — takes silly to new lows. Amateur psychiatrists, and maybe even some children, would tell you that if someone is tempted by an object to harm someone else, that person’s probably got very serious mental problems.

The grossly irresponsible aspect of Costas’ screed against guns is that in one fell swoop, he gave us all permission to blame the weapon instead of the perpetrator.

Ironically, it’s the same kind of excuse that abusers use and too many abuse victims ultimately believe: that it isn’t the abuser’s fault. They blame alcohol, the way a woman dresses, an unkempt house, a late night out. “
