So do some Democrats, they just aren’t willing to talk about it . . . Some GOP Lawmakers Really Want To Carry Guns In The Capitol

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) loves the idea of bringing a gun to work.

He can’t do it right now. Congressional lawmakers and others who can carry concealed guns elsewhere still have to apply for a D.C.-specific permit if they want to be armed in the city, and only law enforcement officers are allowed to carry inside the U.S. Capitol. But after a gunman opened fire on GOP lawmakers during baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, last month, House Republicans introduced a flurry of bills that would let them carry concealed weapons almost anywhere.

Now there’s some brilliant detective work.

They usually prescribe Carbamazepine for that . . . Number of guns seizures up sharply at BWI, airports nationwide

The number of guns seized at BWI Thurgood Marhsall Airport is climbing sharply, authorities say, mirroring a years-long increase at airports throughout the region and across the country.

Seizures at BWI rose 20 percent in 2016, and are on pace to climb another 33 percent this year. Nationwide, they increased last year by nearly 28 percent.

The latest biometric lock gizmo . . . Cabela’s deal gives startup jump on sales for fingerprint trigger lock

Omer Kiyani is an engineer, entrepreneur and gun advocate.

The former airbag systems engineer for a German auto supplier has successfully transitioned those three characteristics into the creation of a product that could attract gun enthusiasts who want both safety and quick access to their firearms — while expanding his fledgling startup.

Kiyani’s Detroit-based Sentinl Inc. launched its IdentiLock, a fast-access biometric trigger lock, at about 75 Cabela’s stores and online this month. The product attaches to a gun’s trigger and unlocks in 300 milliseconds only when the owner, or up to three approved users, applies a fingerprint.

Auburn police found a gun inside a park bathroom in Auburn on Monday.

Police say the gun belongs to an off-duty police officer. The firearm was not issued by the officer’s agency.

Auburn police say a good Samaritan spotted the gun inside a bathroom stall at Recreation Park and turned it into park staff.
The police officer has since taken back his gun.

Auburn police are not identifying the officer, but say he’s from a Bay Area police agency.

You know you can believe this story because it’s published by state-controlled TASS . . . Russians see no need to own guns thanks to falling crime rates, expert says

“While in 2010 there were 5,234 million registered firearms owners, now there are 4,267. The overwhelming majority of people who refused to possess firearms took this step voluntarily,” Ternova told a news conference on Friday.

“In most cases, people see that the criminal situation is improving and do not think that they need to continue possessing firearms,” she explained.

Southern California seems to be a cess pit of police-involved firearms-related corruption . . . Los Angeles officer in sex probe charged with gun felonies.

A Los Angeles police officer who was already arrested on suspicion of having sex with a 15-year-old cadet has now been charged with 10 felonies for illegal weapons found in his home, authorities said.

Police found illegally modified assault rifles and other restricted firearms while searching Robert Cain’s home during the sex investigation last month, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement Thursday night.

Prosecutors have filed charges against him including the illegal possession and manufacturing of assault rifles.

  1. SF public restroom.

    Downside, no TP and if it’s one of the “specials” things could get awkward.

    Upside, free guns!

        • Just depends on what you consider ‘The Bay Area’. People who daily commuted from Lodi & Stockton to the office in SJC/Campbell were not uncommon – 20 years ago. I can only imagine what it’s like now.

          Auburn is admittedly pushing the limits of ‘Bay Area’, but it’s barely in the foothills.

        • Or, it’s like 73 miles from SF to The Cruz (which I think most will identify as ‘Bay Area’). and it’s only about 83 miles to Sacto, with Auburn being a northern ‘burb.

  2. “While in 2010 there were 5,234 million registered firearms owners, now there are 4,267.” There’s over 5 billion privately owned firearms in Russia? Damn! Who’d of thought..,

    • Thought the same thing. One can only hope that they are using commas where in the US, we would use a decimal point.

      IE, 5.234M registered firearm owners, and now there are only 4.267M.

      • Yeah. If that was the case it would be a horrible embarrassment and we’d have to step up our game. We cannot allow the soviets to continue leading the small arms gap!

        • They’re Russians, not soviets. Considering Stalin alone killed millions of his countrymen, I’m sure many Russians know of family that were killed by their then-government and probably hate the communists, socialists, soviets, etc, more than any of us ever will.

      • Reminds me of an old Russian joke:
        Q: Why do Russians pour oil on their flower beds?
        A: To keep the guns from rusting.

        Yeah, it’s stupid – I guess it loses something in the translation…

        • Sadly, not stupid, but very true in the era of the Bolshevik revolution. The first thing Stalin and his cronies did was try to take everybody’s guns. If you wanted to keep yours, you buried it. The ‘joke’ suggests there was a whole lot of burying going on.

      • “2010 there were 5,234 million registered firearms owners, now there are 4,267.”

        Besides questions about commas, the second number does not include “millions”. Reads a decrease from 5.2 billion to 4,267. Not 4.2 billion, *4,267*! Given the “comma instead of period”, it would be just 5.2 million to 4,267. Still seems almost unbelievable. /sarc.

    • Yeah my query too Hank. Lotsa’ comrades…where’s my gun in john? That po-leeceman wouldn’t see his gat again if this non-Samaritan found it?

  3. I bet a LOT of LAPD officers freely violate the AW bans in California.
    But when they do something else that upsets the powers that be, THEN the department decides to do something about their ‘illegal gun arsenal’.

  4. “A group of women shocked two security guards with stun guns after they were caught stealing…”

    Both the writer and the copy editor for the Star need to be drawn and quartered for this publishing line.

    Pronoun confusion motherfuckers.

    If you can’t catch that then you should be homeless and beaten daily until you have a basic grasp of written English. If you get the job, make this third grade mistake and put it in print your remains should be gibbeted as a warning to others.

    • ” ‘A group of women shocked two security guards with stun guns after they were caught stealing…’

      Both the writer and the copy editor for the Star need to be drawn and quartered for this publishing line.

      Pronoun confusion…”

      It’s worse than that. How did the women shock the security guards? …not mentioned. What were the security guards with stun guns stealing? … not mentioned. How many women shocked the two security guards? …no mentioned.

      Very poor reporting, if you ask me. So lacking in detail.

    • The whole thing is so transparently ludicrous it may have been written by a former Comedy Central staffer.

  5. I’m sorry it came to this. But the attempted assassination of so many republicans at one time has finally motivated everyone. How much can we get of our rights back? As much as possible.

    • I don’t think they’re motivated enough. They may be mouthing platitudes about rights, but they’re still only talking about expanding their own privilege in the capital (and probably won’t even make any headway on that). You ‘n me ‘n Joe Sixpack aren’t going to see any benefit from this, and the workaday residents of DC sure as hell won’t.

      Still, I do hope they prove me wrong…

    • The Constitution of the United States of America, Article I, Section 6 [The Senators and Representatives]:

      “…shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same…”

      Section 8, paragraph 17 [The Congress shall have the Power]:

      “To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States…”

      It’s in the Constitution. Why is Congress going hat in hand to Washington D.C. authorities begging for permission to carry concealed weapons? They have the authority to tell D.C. government to FOAD, and to repeal any or all of their ridiculous gun control measures.

      Or have they foolishly (and it would seem unconstitutionally) ceded this power to the city authorities?

  6. ” When police arrived, they found a 25-year-old man bleeding from a head wound, (James City County Police spokeswoman Stephanie ) Williams said. The victim told police he was in a fight with another man, later identified as (Antuan Jamal) White, when the other man pulled a gun from his waistband. As the victim continued to fight, White allegedly struck him in the head with the gun. The victim was able to knock the gun from White’s hand and pick it up, turning the gun on its owner, Williams said…”

    Okay… who started the fight? I hope there’s more evidence than just the one guy’s statement. Because this might have been a DGU by the ‘perpetrator’ for all we know.

  7. For bathroom carry, a belly band holster is a great choice. Just pull it up above your belly button, do your business, then wipe your butt, pull up your undies, and bring your holster back down to hip level before you pull your pants up.

    Just remember to keep one hand on the gun while bending over so it doesn’t fall out on the floor or into the toilet.

    Anyway, that’s my uncensored two cents worth on bathroom carry.

    • Is the whole bathroom thing actually a problem for anyone who is not a cop? Seems to me that every time a gat is left in a can the gat in question belongs to a cop. I know I’ve never had a problem and never sought any advice on the subject. I also remember to leave the head with my keys, my phone, my hat, my briefcase and anything else I brought in with me. I even remember to close the lid. Only exception, the bathroom(s) in my house – sometimes I leave things on the counter in there but that is my prerogative.

  8. “Southern California seems to be a cess pit of police-involved firearms-related corruption . . ”

    Come one now, be fair: we’re a cess pit for all sorts of reasons, not just dirty cops.

  9. A) Never trust your firearms access to something that depends on batteries

    B) Wear a belly band. Then you don’t have to worry about where your gun goes on the shitter.

    C) Maybe Russians just aren’t registering. There’s only 70,000 “registered” assault weapons in NYS, after all.
