…I really do. I hope that I’m concerned over nothing but I can’t see this not going bad at some point.
I really don’t understand the mindset of these people; those are undomesticated animals that they are training to hunt — while raising them in the house with their children. I hope and pray that nothing bad ever happens but I certainly won’t be surprised if it does.
I’m not going to say “There should be a law”; people should be allowed to put themselves and their children in jeopardy if they choose. Just as I’m allowed to think they are all kinds of dumb for doing so.
Gun control advocates were determined to have a presence outside the convention hall. Across the street Friday, the No More Names vigil read the names of gun violence victims since the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre
* Thirty-six percent of violent felons had an active criminal justice status at the time of their arrest. This included 18% on probation, 12% on release pending disposition of a prior case, and 7% on parole.
* Seventy percent of violent felons had a prior arrest record, and 57% had at least one prior arrest for a felony. Sixty-seven percent of murderers and 73% of those convicted of robbery or assault had an arrest record.
* A majority (56%) of violent felons had a prior conviction record. Thirty-eight percent had a prior felony conviction and 15% had a previous conviction for a violent felony.
And after you are through, you might spend the time needed to get your voice back by listening to the millions of people who have used firearms to stop crime. Of course, that might be too much for you since it would require you to actually have an open mind about the issue.
DWG is Dalworthington Gardens; a small town complete surrounded by Arlington. Ain’t much in the way of income opportunities other then property taxes and traffic fines.
So, it was with a little trepidation that I saw a squad car parked in front of my house — in Arlington — yesterday.
Turns out they were just stopping by to make sure everything was kosher with my son’s car. It broke own in a parking lot in DWG. Office W. came by to make sure the car wasn’t stolen, hadn’t been abandoned or we hadn’t realized it was missing.
Nice to see that some cops still remember the “protect and serve” parts of their jobs.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those who died or have been injured.
Yesterday I posted on a defensive gun use in Fort Worth/Everman Texas which is unfortunately a rarity where the crime was stopped. Yes, Crime is falling for the most part year over year but that doesn’t mean crime has stopped.
The world is probably safer then it has ever been; doesn’t mean it is a safe world. People can get hurt, either by accident or by evil intention. I think those pushing gun control laws either forget this simple fact or try to wish it away.
Thankfully we have some representatives willing to stand up and resist the push to strip away our liberty from those trying to bubblewrap the world. Do I wish the world was a trouble free paradise; ABSOLUTELY. But it isn’t. And until evil is confronted and overcame completely, it will never be. And here is a simple fact folks; we will not be the ones to confront and overcome evil.
Until that time comes, it is not only our right but our responsibility to look out for the safety of our family and ourselves. It is our responsibility to fight against laws that would have turned law abiding people into criminals and not have stopped those already committing crimes.
I plan to call Senators Corryn and Cruz today and thank them. Simply that. Other messages can wait for another day. Those two stood up for us in ways we wanted them to. Senator Cruz was instrumental in the filibuster and offered an amendment. Senator Corryn offered an amendment that would have created National Reciprocity. And for doing what was right, I’m going to let them know I’m grateful.
So if your Senators stood up for you yesterday, please join me in calling them today to say thanks. If your Senators didn’t; well what you tell them is up to you
But in 2012 the city declared Tam’s a “public nuisance,” claiming the late-night joint was a haven for criminals. Benetatos says he is simply located in a high-crime area and has tried to work with the Los Angeles Police Department, honoring its requests that he remove pay phones on the property and tables for outdoor seating, which he says resulted in a 15 percent decline in revenues.
The city’s zoning board then ordered Benetatos to comply with 22 separate conditions, such as hiring a full-time security guard, fencing in the entire property, and installing a security camera that links directly to the LAPD’s electronic surveillance system.
22 separate conditions after removing pay phones and outdoor seating !
And this from a group of unelected bureaucrats — in the state where people are all but forbidden to exercise their right to keep and bear arms in public; they want to require full time security.
I really don’t understand this type of mentality — crime is rampant in the area so bad they want to force a business to install cameras linked directly to the police department (but don’t say “police surveillance state”/Big Brother) — yet it is still next to impossible to get a carry permit in L.A. County.
Congratulations City of Los Angeles; in times of economic hardship and high unemployment, you just shut down another business. Great going!
(CBS) — The warmest day of the year so far brought hundreds of mischievous teens to Michigan Avenue on Saturday. Police were calling it “mob action.”
CBS 2 has learned about multiple incidents in at least four different locations along the Magnificent Mile and in the Gold Coast, yielding a slew of arrests. In all, 25 juveniles and three adults were charged.
“You had a group of teens, close to maybe 500. They assaulted a Chicago police officer that was mounted on a horse and all of a sudden they assaulted a citizen walking the streets, just a normal citizen shopping and enjoying the weather,” said Holmes.
Chicago seems to have a higher frequency of occurrence but ‘flash mob’ violence is hardly limited to that city.
And these types of events are occurring without a natural disaster or breakdown of the system. What do you think is going to happen if TSHTF?
So the HAVA fundraiser I am running is coming to a close in about two weeks, and I have come to terms with not beating last year’s performance with the Soldiers’ Angels fundraiser, but I would like to be able to put up the new prize packages ( http://www.wallsofthecity.net/2013/03/hava-update.html ) by getting the funds donated over $1500.
I might be able to scrap up a $5 or $10 donation and hope that anyone else who hasn’t donated will strongly consider it. After all, ever seen a Sad Linoge? Not a pretty sight I’m told and one we shouldn’t inflict on the world.
This is a great charity program that is helping out our Veterans. Thanks to those who have already donated and Linoge for running the give away and fundraiser.
