Detroit Police Chief Puts Thugs on Notice…

Detroit Police Chief James Craig shared plenty of common sense wisdom on guns in a recent interview with WDIV-TV. Even though plenty of anti-gun city officials are on record urging residents to call the police rather than use a firearm, Craig knows that is not always a viable option. Craig also said he wants criminals in Detroit to know they shouldn’t just be afraid of the police — they should also be afraid of responsible gun owners who are prepared to defend themselves and their homes. “A lot of good Detroiters are fed up,” Craig said. “The message should be that, … Continue reading

Connecticut Patriots Fight Confiscation Order

From Joe for America: The war on liberty is coming to a head in Connecticut, where tens of thousands of gun owners have refused to comply with their state government’s gun registration laws. Officials have literally ordered those who failed to meet the registration deadline to surrender their firearms or face arrest. The State of Connecticut is now demanding that gun owners across the state turn in all newly-banned, unregistered firearms and magazines or face felony arrest. The State Police Special Licensing & Firearms Unit began mailing out notices to gun owners who attempted to register their firearms and accessories with the state … Continue reading

Bill Whittle: The Grey Un-Marked Crown Vic

Bill Whittle noticed something annoying on a recent commute: a Crown Victoria without license plates. Why are the authorities becoming more militarized and treating Americans like the enemy? We at ‘Nox & Friends have highlighted a number of these occurrences, so this isn’t altogether new news but it seems the trend is growing. This will continue to grow until such time the people demand restraint and strict adherence of the Constitution with regards to citizens’ rights from those in charge. ~ Hardnox

Cop: You Just Lost Your Freedom of Speech

From The Federalist Papers: County police, auxiliary officers and state police were all responding to a large crowd and disturbance on York Road. County police officials became aware of the video of the altercation Tuesday morning and have launched an investigation. A man videotaping Baltimore County police as they arrested two people was approached by at least two different officers and not only angrily threatened with arrest, but told he had no rights. The man asked the officers several times what he was doing wrong. When he tried to remind them “I have my rights,” things quickly went downhill, with … Continue reading

SCOTUS Relaxes Rules on Warrantless Search

From the LA Times: Police officers may enter and search a home without a warrant as long as one occupant consents, even if another resident has previously objected, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in a Los Angeles case. The 6-3 ruling, triggered by a Los Angeles Police Department arrest in 2009, gives authorities more leeway to search homes without obtaining a warrant, even when there is no emergency. The majority, led by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., said police need not take the time to get a magistrate’s approval before entering a home in such cases. But dissenters, led by … Continue reading

Living Off the Grid is Unlawful?

From Opposing Views: Woman Living Off The Grid Faces Eviction If She Doesn’t Hook Back Up In 2012, Florida resident Robin Speronis made the decision to live off the grid. She uses solar panels, propane heaters, rainwater filters, and a camp shower to get by without using her city’s water or electrical services. Her lifestyle drew the interest of those in her community – so much so that a local news station decided to run a segment on her. Just one day after the story ran, city authorities showed up at Speronis’ door. “A code-enforcement officer came, knocked on the … Continue reading

Clueless Cop Arrests Innocent Woman

From Joe for America: For every bad cop, there are at least 10 good ones, but they don’t usually make headlines. The bad ones, however, make the news on a daily basis it seems, thanks to Al Gore’s internet. This officer didn’t know it’s legal for civilians to record traffic stops. Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit and Tennessee law professor had this to say: All over America, police have been arresting people for taking video or making sound recordings of them, even though such arrests are pretty clearly illegal. Usually, the charges are dropped once the case becomes public, and that’s the … Continue reading

80 Year Old Man Killed in His Own Bed

From Joe for America: Police Shoot, Kill 80 Year Old Man In His Own Bed, Don’t Find the Drugs They Were Looking For In the early morning hours of June 27, 2013, a team of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies pulled up to the home of Eugene Mallory, an 80-year-old retired Lockheed Martin engineer living in the rural outskirts of Los Angeles county with his wife Tonya Pate and stepson Adrian Lamos. The deputies crashed through the front gate and began executing a search warrant for methamphetamine on the property. Detective Patrick Hobbs,  a self-described narcotics expert who claimed he “smelled the strong odor of chemicals” downwind … Continue reading

Remember the Cartoon Character Underdog?

From Eagle Rising: No Innocent is an Underdog When They Have a Gun to Even the Field Why the sudden nostalgia for a cartoon that turns 50 years old this year?  I came across the theme song the other day and it got me thinking about the world in general. The lyrics are rather apropos for a gun site such as mine.  As such I made the following video that is amusing but also thought provoking.  The good honest people who rise to the occasion when others cry out for a hero are just regular folk.  Old, young, women, men…the only common denominator … Continue reading

More Militarized Police Busting Down Doors

From Radley Balko at the Washington Post: When critics (like me) warn about the dangers of police militarization, this is what we’re talking about. You’ll see the raid team, dressed in battle-dress uniforms, helmets and face-covering balaclava hoods take down the family’s door with a battering ram. You’ll see them storm the home with ballistics shields, guns at the ready. More troubling still, you’ll see not one but two officers attempt to prevent the family from having an independent record of the raid, one by destroying a surveillance camera, another by blocking another camera’s lens. From the images in the … Continue reading

Presence of a Gun Prompts No-Knock Raid

From WND: Texas law-enforcement officers conducted a no-knock raid as if a firearm in the home “could somehow load itself, disengage its own safety, open the door, and begin to fire at the police,” according to a brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court. Attorneys with William Olson P.C. and the United States Justice Foundation submitted the friend-of-the-court brief this week in a case brought on behalf of John Quinn. Quinn was targeted by police because his son – who was suspected of possessing drugs – lived in the same home. His son was absent, and police records reveal they knew that fact when … Continue reading

By Vincent Finelli at USAPrepares : Police Chief Shane Harger of the Jemez Springs, NM Police Department was placed on administrative leave and ordered to disband his police department today. Harger returned from the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association Convention on Monday, January 27, 2014 with a sense of knowing that, he as well as 38 other peace officers, shared the commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America from enemies both foreign and domestic. He and the other 38 men and women signed the Resolution of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (see … Continue reading

Mexico Legalizes Vigilante Groups

From Yahoo News and AP: Mexico essentially legalized the country’s growing “self-defense” groups Monday, while also announcing that security forces had captured one of the four top leaders of the Knights Templar drug cartel, which the vigilante groups have been fighting for the last year. The government said it had reached an agreement with vigilante leaders to incorporate the armed civilian groups into old and largely forgotten quasi-military units called the Rural Defense Corps. Vigilante groups estimate their numbers at 20,000 men under arms. The twin announcements may help the administration of President Enrique Pena Nieto find a way out … Continue reading

Remember This Poor Guy?

From Joe for America: Citizen Awarded $1.6 Million Settlement in Law Suit A little over a year ago, David Eckert was subjected to 8 anal exams after he was stopped by New Mexico police for rolling through a stop sign. One of the officers claimed Eckert’s posture was “erect and he kept his legs together,” which led him to believe Eckert may have been hiding drugs in his anal cavity. A search warrant was obtained, even though no drugs were found on his person or in his vehicle. The search warrant included permission to search Eckert’s anal cavity.  The warrant did not mention what kind of medical procedure could be … Continue reading

From Gun Safety Blog “A Fight Avoided Is a Fight Won” When you are carrying a gun, go out of your way to avoid a fight.

Alex Johnson, Staff Writer, NBC News A retired cop, irked that the couple in front of him were texting at a Mark Wahlberg war movie, opened fire in a Florida theater Monday, killing the man and wounding his wife, authorities said.

Detroit Police Chief: Legal Gun Owners Can Deter Crime

From The Detroit News:  “If more citizens were armed, criminals would think twice about attacking them”, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Thursday. Urban police chiefs are typically in favor of gun control or reluctant to discuss the issue, but Craig on Thursday was candid about how he’s changed his mind. “When we look at the good community members who have concealed weapons permits, the likelihood they’ll shoot is based on a lack of confidence in this Police Department,” Craig said at a press conference at police headquarters, adding that he thinks more Detroit citizens feel safer, thanks in part … Continue reading

Big Brother: “Your Papers, Please!”

From WND: Homeland Security to require digital features in driver’s license If you plan to drive in the United States, you’ll soon be required to have a National Identity Card and a Western Hemisphere-compliant travel document whether you want it or not. The federal government says it soon will be enforcing its demands that state-issued driver’s licenses and ID cards comply with Department of Homeland Security standards. DHS announced just before Christmas a final schedule for the full enforcement of the REAL ID Act of 2005. That was set for a phased implementation beginning in January 2014 and full-scale enforcement planned no later than May … Continue reading

The Best Second Amendment Speech Ever!

From IJ Review: Every once in awhile a video speaks for itself. This is one of those videos. Watch former Iraqi war combat veteran and current police officer Aaron Weiss address the Dutchess County legislature in New York on the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. A very moving speech from a man whose actions and words deserve much admiration. Thank you, Sir, for taking a stand and for your service. ~Kathy
