Madonna, Your Marxist Moron of the DAY

OH boy, she is deep in the Cult of Gun Control nonsense

Commenting on the death of George Floyd, she went nuclear stoopit

“This has to stop!! Until we can over come Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops,” the pop diva writes in an Instagram post.

OK Madonna, OK, but, somehow, I DOUBT your sincerity, as does Tom Knighton

You see, the singer is known to routinely enjoy armed security, a fact that came in pretty handy once upon a time.

Back in 1996, a man tried to gain entrance into Madonna’s home. He was met with armed security who ended up shooting the suspect. Now, we can’t be certain the man was an actual threat to Madonna, but I doubt he’d be a charming houseguest the singer would be delighted to have stay with her either.

Where were her complaints then?

Ah yes, it is different when Madonna needs protection. Remember folks, Leftism is an ideology of inconsistency

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

The Left doesn’t want the young to be able to defend themselves. But sometimes that is both necessary and right. Police: 17-year-old shoots, kills armed home invader in Cobb County.

Police said three people with guns tried to break into and rob a home on Olive Springs Road around 9 p.m.

Machavellia Bagsby, 21, was shot and killed by a 17-year-old juvenile who lived at the home. Bagsby died at the scene.

Great point about people allowing their kids access to firearms, and “safe-storage” laws. That choice is best left to parents, not activist politicians who pass cookie cutter, statist laws, or activists district attorneys either.

 County prosecutor finds Grand Rapids intruder shooting justified.

Matthew Jakubowksi shot and killed Adam Whitz, after Whitz pushed his way into his ex-girlfriend Anastasia Hahn’s home. Jakubowski and Hahn were living in the home together as a couple and according to the prosecutor’s detailing of the situation, Whitz had come to her home on multiple occasions and caused disturbances

On January 8th, at about 2 o’clock in the morning, he broke into the home and was shot once in the chest. He died at the scene,

Guys, when she says it is over, accept it, it beats getting shot

So, no one, ever uses an AR-15 for self-defense?

Don’t tell this family that lie

Another gun control talking point has been debunked after a pregnant woman, who remains unnamed, used an AR-15 to defend herself and her family from a violent home invasion.

Masked individuals broke into her Florida home and severely beat her husband, who suffered serious injuries. He thought he was going to die.

“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head. I took a severe beating,” Jeremy King told Spectrum News Bay Area 9.

“They came in heavily hooded and masked. As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” he continued, saying the masked men were asking for money. “It became real violent, real fast.”

King said the two suspects grabbed his 11-year old daughter and his wife grabbed their AR-15. She shot one of them, who then ran out of the house and died in a ditch nearby. The other suspect is still on the run.

Ah, self-defense, the ultimate liberty what a beautiful thing!!

South Dakota goes with Constitutional Carry

Good for South Dakota!

South Dakota has become the latest state to remove permit requirements for gun owners to carry and conceal their weapons.

The state’s new Republican governor, Kristi Noem, signed SB 47 into law Thursday. The legislation permits residents to legally carry a firearm concealed on their person so long as they are allowed to possess one.

The bill passed the state Senate by a 23-11 vote and the state House by a vote of 47-23, reports said. In a tweet, Noem said the new law reflects the vision of the Founding Fathers and protects Second Amendment gun rights.

Guns and Self-Defense

A crazed man earned a bullet when he attacked a Starbucks employee

A concealed carrier in a Utah Starbucks fired one shot into the chest of a man last week who polices said had just assaulted a barista, Salt Lake City’s Fox 13 reported.

The carrier was in his late 60s, police said. His identity was not released.

“He witnessed the assault against the clerk,” UPD Detective Ken Hansen said. “And his response, because apparently after the assault the guy came after him, and so he shot the man in the chest.”

The suspect, identified as Benjamin Scott Overall, 37, set off a panic alarm around 6 a.m. Oct. 4 inside a 7-Eleven store in Millcreek, a suburb of Salt Lake City, KJZZ-TV reported. A responding officer approached Overall, who then allegedly fled to a nearby Starbucks.

Overall then allegedly attacked a female employee, the Salt Lake City Tribune reported. A police “probable cause” statement said he punched her, hit her in the head with a metal basket, and kicked her.

“She couldn’t get away from him, and he continued to strike her on her head, face, neck and shoulders,” criminal charges stated.

A good guy with a gun………………….AGAIN!

Good guys at WalMart stop armed criminal H/T Wheelgun

This is what the media says never happens. Well it happened. ‘Hero’ customer kills gunman during wild rampage at Tumwater Walmart

The bad guy opened fire in Walmart, then he tried to carjack a car in the parking lot. The 1st guy refused to give up his car, and got shot. When the bad guy turned to a second car, he got stopped. With extreme prejudice.

The suspect then approached a second car and driver – and it was then that Adams saw one of the two armed customers jump into action and shoot the gunman dead.

“Those men who stood up, they are heroes to me,” says Chadwick.

The armed civilian who shot the gunman was later identified as a 47-year-old Oakville man. After shooting the suspect, he immediately grabbed his first aid kit from his car and rendered aid to the victim of the attempted carjacking. The victim was later airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, in critical condition.

Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Forcing your way into people’s homes is not a smart move

Guns save lives. We say that over and over, and we provide a mountain of data to prove it, but some people refuse to see it that way. They look at the numbers and apparently read it as “Blah, blah, blah” or something. So we tend to share stories of people defending themselves to prove that it does happen and isn’t some clever manipulation of data.

You know, like this woman in South Carolina who killed an alleged attacker with a shotgun.

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler said a Gaffney man was shot and killed during an alleged home invasion early Friday morning.

Fowler said a woman shot and killed Charles Shannon Alley, 41, of Tansi Trail after he forced his way into a home while armed and began fighting with another man in the house.

“According to witness statements Alley knocked on the door of a residence armed with a shotgun at 112 Piney Knob Drive in Gaffney about 3:25 a.m.,” Fowler said. “When a male answered the door, Alley allegedly pushed his way inside and began to fight with the resident while threatening to do harm to another male and female also present. While engaged in the altercation, Alley was allegedly shot in the head by the female resident.”

Tim Anthony, the homeowner, said when he opened the door, two men tried to force their way in.

“I went to crack the door open and they barged, at least two of them, barged through the door and knocked me through the wall,” Anthony said.

Anthony said his girlfriend fired two shots at Alley while they were struggling in the middle of the living room.

Once again, guns save lives!

If guns cause crime………….

Then explain this

While the rest of the country is engaged in heated debate over gun control, one Georgia town has had it figured out for decades.

Residents in Kennesaw, Georgia are required by local law to own a gun. Kennesaw Mayor Derek Easterling didn’t sugar coat his approval of the city ordinance that was passed in 1982.

Kennesaw is one of Georgia’s safest cities. When the gun law was enacted Kennesaw had only a few thousand residents, according to Fox 8 Cleveland, but today the local population is over 33,000 and has had only one murder in the last six years, and a violent crime rate at under 2 percent

Bad people are predatory, they loom for easy targets……………

It is called a holster idiot!

Good Freaking Grief!

Responsible gun owners know that if you’re going to carry directly on your person, you never forgo a holster. Tucking your firearm into the waistband of your pants, your belt or your pocket is, simply put, an accident waiting to happen.

Unfortunately, one Missouri gun owner never got the memo – or he did and just chose to ignore it.

The man was shopping at a University City grocery store with a loaded firearm tucked into the waistband of his jeans, sans holster. Since a waistband provides little to no support and fails to keep your weapon properly oriented, the handgun quickly began to slip down the man’s pants. In his attempt to keep the gun from falling to the floor – and with nothing protecting the trigger – the man accidentally discharged a single round…and shot himself right in the leg.

Your hero of the Day

Remember the man that saved an Arizona state trooper by shooting the man attacking the trooper? Well, here he is

Consider former felon Thomas Yoxall’s debt to society paid in full, with interest.

The man who shot and killed an assault suspect on a dark highway in Arizona, rescuing a state trooper, said on Wednesday that he doesn’t think of himself as a hero.

The Good Samaritan had requested media anonymity since the early-morning January 12 incident on Interstate 10.

Today, he made his first appearance since the incident at a news conference at the headquarters of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

He identified himself as Thomas Yoxall, 43, a maintenance supervisor with a passion for photography and reading.

And he mentioned that he has a “past.”

As court records show, that past includes a 2000 conviction for felony theft.

Fortunately for DPS Trooper Edward Andersson, whose life hung on the edge before Yoxall showed up on January 12, Yoxall had his gun rights restored in 2003 after he successfully completed probation.

Yoxall has paid back his debt to society — big-time.

“That morning, I never would have dreamt that I was going to save somebody’s life, let alone take the life of another individual,” Yoxall said. “I don’t recall any thought or feeling of fear. It happened very quickly. There wasn’t necessarily time for me to react, or think logically. I don’t consider myself a hero that day.”

Yet DPS officials describe Yoxall’s actions in terms that could, in fact, best be described as heroic.

Trooper Edward Andersson responded to a vehicle rollover and saw a man and woman ejected from a vehicle. As Andersson approached, the man—an illegal alien who used to be a federal Mexican police officer named Leonard Penuelas-Escobar—fired a handgun that hit Andersson in the shoulder. Penuelas-Escobar then began slamming Andersson’s head into the pavement, trying to kill him.

Yoxall saw the attack as it took place, pulled over, and grabbed the handgun he kept in the center console and ran to help Trooper Andersson. When Penuelas-Escobar refused to stop attacking Andersson and Andersson called for assistance, Yoxall took a firing position that didn’t put Andersson in the line of fire, and took two shots that put Penuelas-Escobar down. Mr. Yoxall then ran to assist Trooper Andersson, only to see Penuelas-Escobar rise up and come at them both. Yoxall then took careful aim and shot Penuelas-Escobar in the head, killing him.

Penuelas-Escobar and the woman killed in the incident,Vanessa Lopez-Ruiz, were allegedly meth users and drug dealers.

The perfect answer to a common question

Via Mike McDaniel who tackles the “Why do you carry a firearm” query

I CARRY A HANDGUN BECAUSE:

* Evil exists and may confront anyone at any time and any place.

* I believe God exists and expects me to protect those that can’t protect themselves.

* Self-defense is a God-given, natural, unalienable right.

* There is no gift so precious as God’s gift of life.

* To fail to protect God’s greatest gift is inexcusable.

* My life is worth far more to me, those that love me, and to a just society than the lives of vicious criminals and terrorists.

* The lives of the innocent—friend or stranger—are worth far more to me and to a just society than the lives of vicious criminals and terrorists.

* Three times in my life I have raised my right hand and sworn a solemn oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.  I have never betrayed those oaths and never will.

* By carrying my handgun, I honor the foresight and wisdom of the Founders in writing the Second Amendment.

* The Constitution is only paper and ink, a statement of principals and intentions. When the will wavers and when some wish to change, ignore or destroy those principals and intentions for light and transient reasons, only the threat and, if necessary, the application of the force of arms, will suffice to preserve liberty.

* A handgun is the most convenient, usual and effective means of self-defense.

* Going armed reinforces and upholds the Social Contract.

* An armed society is a polite society.

Pretty much perfect, and yes, there is much more go read it all

Your Ugly Fact of the Day……..

Democrats, AKA Neo-Marxists see armed Americans as more of a threat than terrorists. So, rather than helping Americans defend themselves, they push for useless laws that will only affect law-abiding gun owners, and, will, lead to gun bans eventually. As Bob Owens points out if Democrats WANTED to help end mass shootings they would be pushing to ban gun free zones

If Democrats really want to stop the vast majority of mass killings, they can push for one simple law that would have the dual effects of restoring liberties nationwide, and destroying the common target of nearly every mass murder.

Screen-Shot-2016-06-12-at-Sunday-June-12-9.26-AM-e1467245241377

Yes, nearly 99% of all mass public murders over the last 66 years have the common denominator of occurring in so-called “gun free zones,” places where citizens have been prevented from being able to legally carry firearms for their own self-defense and the defense of others. Those evil souls who have decided that they must rage against innocent random human life nearly always pick densely populated spaces where they know citizens have been disarmed by ill-informed politicians.

If I were running the GOP, and man would I do a better job than those who are, I would demand Democrats join in voting to do away with “gun-free” zones which are killing fields for mass murderers and terrorists. I would hit them with this demand over and over and over! I would demand every Republican Senator and Representative to pound the Democrats with the facts on “gun violence”. And I would ask every member of Congress to bring Americans who have used a firearm to defend themselves, their families, and homes to testify about their experience!

Violent crime and homicide rates are steadily falling, there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of defensive gun uses annually, and 13 million or more American are carrying firearms safely and legally. New gun sales are skyrocketing and violent crime is falling! This message needs to be pounded over and again! WE ought never allow the Left to own the language!

NBA player killed after kicking in man’s apartment door

Very sad story here. But, unless some new details emerge, this player caused his own death. Bob Owens has the story

NBA guard Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed in a home invasion on Saturday.

Bryce Dejean-Jones of the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans forced his way into the wrong apartment in Dallas early Saturday morning, and earned a bullet for his thuggish behavior.

NBA player Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed early Saturday after he broke into a Dallas apartment he believed was his girlfriend’s and instead startled a man he didn’t know, according to police and his agent.

The 23-year-old New Orleans Pelicans guard “kicked open the front door” to a unit in the Camden Belmont Apartments, just east of Central Expressway and Fitzhugh Avenue, about 3:20 a.m., police said.

NBA player Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed early Saturday after he broke into a Dallas apartment he believed was his girlfriend’s and instead startled a man he didn’t know, according to police and his agent.

The 23-year-old New Orleans Pelicans guard “kicked open the front door” to a unit in the Camden Belmont Apartments, just east of Central Expressway and Fitzhugh Avenue, about 3:20 a.m., police said.

The player then kicked in, or was trying to kick in the bedroom door. The resident retrieved a firearm, called out to the intruder, who did not respond and fired, killing Dejean-Jones.

If everything in the report is true, then I can think of nothing else the resident of the apartment could have done but protect his life. A stranger kicking in your front door, then kicking in your in the process of kicking in your bedroom door would certainly cause you to fear for your life

Lakeland Home Invasion Suspect Shot, Killed By Homeowner – WTVT

.

.
A man was shot and killed when deputies say he unlawfully entered a home and fired at two people inside.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said it happened at a home on Chestnut Hills Drive around 6:30 a.m. New Year’s Day.

Chevez Antwann Fiason, 24, was shot and killed by the homeowner during the incident. No one else was injured in the incident.

Fiason was said to have a violent arrest history and was released from state prison in March 2015.

“Forcing your way into an occupied residence is a bold and foolish decision – if you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County,” Sheriff Grady Judd said.

The incident in under investigation, but no arrests had been made.

Senator Chris Murphy diagnosed with Truth Deficit Disorder

Murphy, a Democrat Statist is like most members of the Cult of Gun Control in that he lies, deliberately he loathes natural rights, such as the right of self-defense. It takes a truly miserable excuse for a human being to lie, again, DELIBERATELY, in order to strip the most basic human rights from good people.

As Vox Day notes, the first law of social justice warriors is that they always lie. Then they continue the lie, and build on the lie in order to push The Narrative forward. Here’s a perfect example

(Breitbart) On December 31 Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) claimed there were 372 mass shootings–or more than one mass shooting a day–during calendar year 2015. On the other hand, Mother Joneseditor Mark Follmanreported four mass shootings for the whole year and USA Today reported approximately 22.

What accounts for the jump from from four–or even 22–to 372? The jump is the result of Senator Chris Murphy’s (D-CT) complete rejection of the FBI criteria for a mass shooting. That criteria is four fatalities in one shooting incident. Instead of using this, Murphy has adopted the criteria of Shooting Tracker, a website which labels any shooting or series of shootings a “mass shooting” if there are four or more injuries.

There does not have to be a death, and the injuries do not have to be the result of just one shooting incident but can be the result of numerous incidents added together. This means Senator Murphy counts a parking lot shootout–like the one WMC-TV reported between two groups of people in two separate cars in Memphis, Tennessee in October–as a “mass shooting.” And it also means that an Elkhart, Indiana, parking brawl involving over a 100 people–where some of those people pulled guns and opened fire–counts as a “mass shooting” too. The South Bend Tribune reported that “four individuals were found to be wounded” in that October 14 brawl.

Murphy also inflated the number of deaths by including the shooters themselves, an example of doubling down on the lie to continue The Narrative.

With all these gang related shootings, one might think we have a gang problem, not a gun problem.

Here is to Sen. Murphy
