Woman Assaults Videographer in Front of Tucson Cops, Who Claim They Saw Nothing

 

 

 

” For more than eight long minutes, Raymond Rodden, who is no stranger to PINAC, was allowed to stand on a public sidewalk and video record a woman going through a sobriety test with a Tucson police officer.

Rodden continued recording even after the woman’s friend walked up to him, telling him he was not allowed to record her friend.

Rodden calmly assured her he was allowed, not even getting upset when the woman kept placing her hand in front of his lens.

A nearby police officer, of course, sided with the woman, telling him to turn off the camera.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire – Theatrical Trailer

ABOUT ASSAULTED: CIVIL RIGHTS UNDER FIRE:

” “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” — United States Constitution, Amendment II

Newtown school shooting. Aurora theater shooting. Tucson supermarket shooting. 
Are visceral reactions to tragedies trumping the words of our forefathers?
Should we allow fear and the growing concern over public safety to limit our civil liberties?

Dead Patriot Films presents “Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire,” a documentary that brings audiences to the center of the controversy over the issue that is dividing our nation — gun control. The film takes a critical look at current gun laws and the rising movement to restrict the rights guaranteed by our Second Amendment.

With the original intention of empowering a citizenry’s ability to defend themselves against a corrupt or tyrannical government, the concept today may seem farfetched or the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster. However, it has happened throughout U.S. history. And long before gun control was positioned as a “common sense measure” to combat violence, it was used as a means to oppress certain minority groups. Presently, the growing trend in gun control favors the wealthy and privileged, who leverage their connections to ensure their Second Amendment rights and safety, while those of lesser means struggle.

Informative and emotionally charged, “Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire” is an eye-opening look at the genesis of the Second Amendment in the Constitution, leading the audience to rethink the issues surrounding gun control, and the affect on civil rights and liberty.

After all, what you don’t know can kill you.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MARK KELLY TO CNN: PLAN WAS TO HAND OVER AR-15 ALL ALONG

 

 

 

 

” Kelly responded that he went into the gun store with a plan to buy a .45, “and if we had the opportunity, to buy the AR-15 as well.” He said he didn’t “know the timing,” but he and his people “had a plan for when [they] were going to announce it on Facebook.”

Attention to this issue has been intense, because Kelly bought the AR-15 on March 5 but did not announce that he was turning it over to Tucson PD until three days later.

During the interview, Kelly criticized the AR-15 as a “deadly” weapon “designed for the military” – one which people can buy too easily. But it is unclear what it proves if Kelly, a man with an apparently immaculate record, does not trigger any red flags in a gun purchase background check.”

 

 

GABBY GIFFORDS’S HUSBAND BUYS AR-15

 

 

 

” Kelly reportedly bought the AR-15 and a 1911-style semi-automatic pistol at a gun store in Tucson, Arizona.

Breitbart News received a tip on this when Neil McCabe, editor of Guns & Patriots newsletter, contacted us on March 7 and said:

Mark E. Kelly, made purchases which included an AR-15–sometimes described as an “assault rifle”–at 3:30 pm on the afternoon of March 5 at Diamondback Police Supply, 170 S. Kolb Street, Tucson, AZ.

According to McCabe, witnesses to the purchases claimed Kelly purchased “high capacity” magazines as well.

On March 6, McCabe contacted Kelly’s gun control group–“Americans for Responsible Solutions”–and on March 8 they replied that his message had been passed on to colleagues who handle press requests. Breitbart News then began investigating the details surrounding the purchase, including visiting the gun store.

Suddenly, Kelly announced on his Facebook page that he was not going to keep the AR-15, which he has yet to pick up from the store.

Days after making the purchases, Kelly wrote on Facebook:

I just had a background check a few days ago when I went to my local gun store to buy a .45. As I was leaving, I noticed a used AR-15. Bought that too. Even to buy an assault weapon, the background check only takes a matter of minutes. I don’t have possession of it yet but I’ll be turning it over to the Tucson PD when I do.”

30 Million In Path Of Winter Storm

 

 

 

 

” “We received a blizzard warning last night through the emergency broadcasting system. Most of us didn’t believe it,” she told CNN iReport. “Most of the news reports said it probably wouldn’t snow in the valley, and two hours later it was snowing.”

Avery, a 19-year-old student at the University of Arizona, said the snow was still falling Wednesday afternoon.

“My brother and I were staring out the window saying, ‘What? It’s snowing in Tucson? That’s not supposed to happen!’ ” she said, adding that she’s never seen this much snow in the area since her family moved there. Usually the area gets no more than a dusting of snow once a year.

iReport: “Blizzard” in Tucson

The inch of snow also caused PGA Tour officials to postpone play at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in nearby Marana, Arizona.”

83% Believe Bad Parenting Bigger Factor Than Gun Laws in Public Shootings

 

gunpoll

 

 

” A recent NBC/WSJpoll shows that more people blame bad parenting and Hollywood for mass public shootings than guns themselves. The results display that the massive public relations campaign to convince people that inanimate objects or society are more to blame more than individuals or their particular family backgrounds has not been very successful.

The wording of the question, polled of 1000 respondents (300 by cellphone):

Now, I’m going to list several items and would like you to tell me how much responsibility — if any— each item might bear for the mass-shootings that have taken place over the last year or two in Tucson, Arizona; Aurora, Colorado; and Newtown, Connecticut – a great deal, a good amount, not too much, or none at all? ”

 

And where did guns figure in the poll respondent’s mind ? 

 

” Most importantly, guns themselves were blamed the fifth most at 59 percent, the rate of people who agreed that “assault and military-style firearms being legal to purchase,” and “the availability of high capacity ammunition clips” contributed to the occurrence of mass public shootings.”

 

 Air Force Missile Site 8 – That Nearly Began World War 3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 ” Retired top-secret installations are nothing short of jaw-dropping, and this one is nothing short of that. This top secret facility was also once known as Titan II ICBM Site 571-7because of the massive Titan II missile that it housed inside of it.

Located about 15 miles south of Tucson, this large 8 level installation is now a museum. During the time of its operation it was one of the most important missile sites. ”
