NPR looked long and hard and found one . . . How An NRA Ad Led A Member To Quit
(JOE) PLENZLER: Yeah, I mean, my initial take was what the everlasting [expletive], you know? I mean, I’m looking at this and, you know, just thinking that this isn’t me, this organization which I belonged to for a number years coming out in such a dark, hostile and fear-provoking way. I was just, like, I’m done. You know, it was kind of, like, the tipping point that just pushed me off the edge.
What NPR doesn’t mention is that Mr. Plenzler identifies himself as an “activist” and is the Director of Media Relations for the American Legion.
Would orange painted muzzles have made a difference? . . . Vancouver Island brothers ‘just having fun’ draw Mountie tactical team, helicopter
Reports of two men in camouflage gear carrying what looked to be high-powered rifles led an RCMP helicopter, a tactical team, a canine team and several Mounties to surround a rural property south of Nanaimo on Wednesday night.
Once two brothers realized they might have attracted the heavy police presence, they walked over to the police blockade — without their guns — and told the officers they were playing an army game with non-lethal airsoft guns.
It started when Karl and Tylor Lofstrom went into the forest across from their home in Cassidy to enjoy an activity they’ve done for years: shooting each other with airsoft guns while dressed in full camouflage gear.
OMG! She’s wearing pants! And holding a gun! OMG! . . . Jinger Duggar Wears Pants While Shooting a Gun and the Internet Is Freaking Out
Jinger Duggar has been slowly been becoming her own person ever since she tied the knot to former soccer star Jeremy Vuolo last November. She made headlines back in March when she was spotted breaking a major Duggar rule — wearing shorts — and now she’s stirring up controversy again by wearing pants while shooting a gun!
The 23-year-old shared photos on her Instagram from her fun day date with Jeremy to a local shooting range in Laredo, Texas and many of her followers were shocked because she not only was she breaking her family’s modesty dress rule but she was also holding a weapon.
He was brought into court in the Town of LeRay around 4am where he was charged with the first and second degree murders of his wife and Davis.
When asked by the judge if he knew why he was in court – he answered that he did not according to Fox 28.
A second woman who lived in a shed on the property with a man and a child was also allegedly shot by Walters, police told WWNY. She suffered non-life threatening injuries to the upper torso.
No day of rest for ducks . . . Delta Waterfowl Celebrates Passage of North Carolina Sunday Hunting Bill
Following five years of intense advocacy by Delta Waterfowl and coalition partners, the North Carolina House and Senate on June 29 passed a bill to expand Sunday hunting to include migratory birds and allow hunting on public lands and waters. The bill now heads to Gov. Roy Cooper, who is expected to sign it into law.
“Establishing Sunday hunting in North Carolina has been at the very top of our legislative priorities,” said John Devney, vice president of U.S. policy for Delta Waterfowl. “Our members in the Tar Heel State strongly declared they wanted the prohibition lifted, and The Duck Hunters Organization is thrilled to have delivered for them.”
Huh. Wonder where it went . . . Audit concludes ammunition in excess, some missing at DES
About 60,000 rounds of ammunition were purchased in violation of state procurement laws, a misdemeanor offense. About 4,000 rounds are also missing from the “excessive” stockpile of more than 88,000 rounds. And Jeffries, along with two of his top staffers, were not in compliance with (Department of Economic Security) policies when they carried firearms at state facilities, the audit found.
Fifty-five handguns were purchased for 28 armed security officers and 23 sworn law enforcement personnel, the audit found. Jeffries, his former Chief of Staff Clark Collier and former Chief Accountability Officer Jay Arcellana carried three of those firearms while on duty even though their “assignments did not require them to be armed,” according to the audit.
Your Arizona tax dollars at work.
Yeah, well it’s from reason.com, so no real surprise there . . . Florida Alert! Finally a news article that is fair and balanced on Florida’s SYG law
Hirsch ruled Monday that the state legislature erred when it passed a law this May shifting the burden of proof onto state prosecutors to disprove self-defense claims during pretrial immunity hearings.
The decision is not binding on other courts, and it will almost certainly be appealed. Gun control advocates and state prosecutors who argue the laws make it too easy for defendants to avoid being tried for violent crime will once again face off against a coalition of Second Amendment groups, defense attorneys, and criminal justice reform organizations, who say the intent of the law clearly puts the burden on the government to disprove self-defense claims.
The bill had the support not only of the National Rifle Association (NRA), but also of public defenders, criminal defense attorneys, and Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM), a nonprofit advocacy group that opposes mandatory minimum sentences.
