Looting in Texas can be hazardous to your health . . . ‘I’m not afraid to shoot you’: Shotgun-wielding ‘former law enforcement officer’ protects Houston food store from looters during Harvey crisis
A man claiming to be a former SWAT deputy has been filmed warning a potential looter that he’s not afraid to shoot him in flood-hit Houston.
Armed with a shotgun, he screamed at anyone who approached a Little York Food Mart store, making terrifying threats.
In footage which has since gone viral, the vigilante is seen telling one man: ‘Hey, don’t you go back in that store! I’m telling you one time. I’m not scared to shoot you.’
NEWS FLASH: Georgia campus carry arouses no controversy, concern . . . Low turnout for ‘campus carry’ forum at Augusta University
The new Georgia law that allows people to carry concealed weapons on college campuses is not generating much controversy, or much interest Tuesday, at Augusta University.
The school hosted a forum on the “campus carry” law and its exemptions but only one person, director of student health Bob Dollinger, showed up. The organizers plan to advertise more for another forum on the law this week at 10 a.m. Thursday in the Jaguar Student Activity Center on the Summerville Campus.
Your tax dollars at work . . . Stolen military equipment worth more than $1M sold on eBay, testimony reveals
More than $1 million of U.S. military equipment was stolen from a base in Kentucky and sold on eBay, according to testimony from a federal trial this week.
John Roberts, a 27-year-old from Clarksville, Tennessee, testified Wednesday that he didn’t know the equipment he received was stolen.
“I didn’t try to hide anything,” Roberts said Wednesday. “That’s why I filed taxes on everything I sold on eBay. I thought it was okay.”
The equipment – some of which was resold to buyers in Russia, China, Mexico, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan and Ukraine – included machine gun and rifle parts, helmets, guns, medical equipment, gun sights, body army (sic) and more.

You don’t say . . . California gun laws create problems for everyone
Ghost guns exist because of California’s strict gun laws
Interesting read on the ghost guns and black market ( “‘Ghost guns’ are easy to build, legal and completely untraceable,” Aug. 27). But why do they exist?
Ghost guns are an answer to California’s onerous and restrictive gun laws that penalize the average law-abiding citizen but do nothing to stop criminals from getting weapons. Our wonderful state legislators have created another avenue for criminals to obtain firearms and an even bigger black market.
If the Legislature is truly concerned about weapons in the wrong hands, it would do better to investigate some of its peers that are associated with various “social clubs” like the ones of former state Sen. (and now admitted felon for weapons trafficking) Leland Yee.
But remember, MDA supports the Second Amendment . . . Moms Demand Action’s Secret War on Concealed Carry for Law-Abiding Citizens
The word “secret” is apropos when you understand that Moms Demand Action’s method of operation is to block pro-Second Amendment voices from their Twitter account, thereby allowing them to maintain a closed circle wherein the preacher is only talking to the choir. It is like Johannesburg for gun grabbers.
Their current war is being waged via the hashtag #StopCCR, which stands for Stop Concealed Carry Reciprocity. It consists of Moms Demand members taking letters to the offices of U.S. Representatives and demanding that those Reps. oppose national reciprocity. . . .
The women look happy in the photo, which only begs the question: Do they not know that Rep. Massie is a sponsor of national reciprocity legislation? In fact, he is the Representative spearheading legislation that will require Washington D.C. to recognize concealed carry permits from every state in the union.
Two naked men with rifles were arrested inside Greg Laurie’s megachurch in Irvine Wednesday night.
As KCAL9/CBS2’s Stacey Butler reports, SWAT teams with rifles trained on the suspects put handcuffs on them and walked them out without any clothing.
Laurie’s Harvest Church is a Christian evangelical church. He is a megapastor who runs the Harvest Crusade in Anaheim every year, which thousands attend. He just held the last crusade at Angel Stadium a week and a half ago.
