Some lessons are just too
politically incorrect dangerous to learn . . . Cease and desist order issued for preschool under fire for gun shop field trip
The state of Georgia has ordered a cease and desist order against a Woodstock school that took first and second-graders on a field trip to a gun shop that the owner of the facility called an “educational experience.”
Tammy Dorsten says she was just trying to give the first and second-grade students a history lesson when she took them to Hi-Caliber Firearms as part of an American History lesson. She says since the incident, her Facebook page has been flooded with criticism.
During a state investigation, the state said the academy was licensed as a private school for kindergarten through second grade. The investigation found the preschoolers were cared for in “an unlicensed space meant for a private school.”

A troubling videotape of a King County sheriff’s detective holding a gun on a motorcyclist has resulted in his being placed on administrative leave. Alex Randall, the motorcyclist, posted the videotape that shows him pulling up to a stop line at a red light. The detective then walks up and points the gun at him. The King County Sheriff has apologized to Randall but the department is still refusing to release the name of the detective.
After the detective walks up, Randall put his hands up and said “don’t shoot.” The deputy does not identify himself in approaching Randall but indicates that Randall was allegedly speeding and and driving recklessly. That still does not explain the gun.

NiteSite LLC, the US Sales Division of NiteSite LTD, the UK company and developers of infrared technology for predator hunting, make keeping hunting memories as easy as the push of a button on the patented NiteSite™ RTEK Eagle, Wolf and Viper night vision systems.

The illuminator module fits to the scope (NiteSite includes a 1-inch and 30mm) by removing the fixing bolt and knob from the clamp and sliding it over the scope tube and attaching the anti-recoil clamp. Then, replace the fixing bolt and knob. The illuminator module slides into the clamp’s T-slot and the anti-recoil clamp slides upwards covering the T-slot. Simply tighten the knob until secure and make sure the LCD screen is facing the eye piece.
What if they play ‘I Shot the Sheriff’ or ‘Shoot to Thrill’ with those guitars? . . . Mexican police trade guns for guitars in hope that mariachi restores public trust
As Mexico’s security situation continues to deteriorate — along with public trust in law enforcement — some police officers in the country are trading in their guns for guitarrónes in an effort to help improve the image of the force.
A group of 21 federal police officers, who also just happen to be professional musicians, have formed a mariachi band in order to show the human side of law enforcement and break down widespread mistrust in the force — a chronic issue in a country plagued by the underreporting of crimes.

Sadly, this isn’t just a South African problem . . . Hilarious video: Thousands of cops should not be handling guns
Alarming statistics have surfaced pertaining to police members without firearm competency certificates who have been let loose on the streets.
According to Gauteng MEC for Community Safety, Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane’s response to a DA question in the Gauteng Legislature, 2 031 South African Police Service members without firearm compliance certificates are currently patrolling Gauteng’s streets.
Of the 2 031 active members without firearm compliance certificates, 627 are stationed in Tshwane. Ekurhuleni has 351, and Johannesburg has 196. The worst affected stations are Evaton with 45 and Sebokeng with 49 uncertified members. This means that these members are not supposed to be deployed outside the confines of the station as the risks and liability are enormous.
Over a notebook…this is why we can’t have nice things . . . Back to school brawl leads to woman pulling gun at Novi Walmart
“One girl was going to buy a notebook. There was one left, some pushing resulted,” Baetens says. “They began to argue who was the rightful purchaser of that notebook.”
Both duos of women were not backing down, as police and witnesses described the two women pulling the younger woman’s hair. That mother got shoved out of the way as the three continued to fight. That mother then pulled out a gun.
“She’s a valid CPL holder,” Baetens says. “She pulled out her firearm and tells them to stop attacking her daughter while pointing the gun at them.”
The fight quickly ended as customers were seen running away and police were called.
