Man Uses Rock To Kill Would Be Armed Robber

H/T Town Hall.

How long before liberals want to ban assault rocks?

The Washington Post reports that a 23-year-old would-be armed robber has died after sustaining injuries to the head when his victim fought back with a large rock.

The Post says that two men from the DMV area, Tauron Williamson, 23,  and Tyron Wheeler, 22, were trying to rob two men on April 22. Wheeler was able to shoot one of the men, but the second victim fought back and evaded injury from the aggressors.

At first, authorities believed that Williamson had been shot, but an autopsy showed his death was due to being pummeled on the head with blunt force. The incident took place in Prince George County, MD.

Wheeler was charged with “with attempted murder, armed robbery, and related charges, and is in the custody of the Department of Corrections on a no-bond status.” The man who killed Williamson was not pressed with charges as police determined he acted in self-defense.

Death from rocks is more common than one might think. The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s most recent statistics indicate that 454 people were killed on average each year between 2013 and 2017 via objects like rocks, hammers, and other blunt objects. By comparison, 679 people are killed per year from personal weapons — meaning hands, fists, feet, etc.. During that same period, 13,739 were killed from all types of firearms.

Post, “[m]ore than 90 people have been killed in the D.C. region this year, according to tracking done by The Washington Post. Of those, 25 have been in Prince George’s County.”  Washington, DC continues to remain one of the country’s most dangerous cities. Some studies show that you the capital’s crime rate is “86% higher than the US average” and that you have a 1 in 20 chance of being the victim of a crime.

2020 Dem Cory Booker Made It Clear: ‘If I Had the Power’ to Ban Guns ‘I Would’ (WATCH)

H/T Flag And Cross.

Hey, Corey, there is this document called the Constitution that has a thing called the Bill Of Rights in said Bill of Rights is the Second Amendment.

The Second Amendment gives us the right to keep and bear arms uninhibited by the government and tyrants like you.

Oh, Cory Booker.

The New Jersey Democrat Senator can’t seem to catch a break in the polls, which has to make you wonder why he even made a bid to begin with.

Back in 2000, Cory said something very interesting about guns.

Either he’s never heard of the Second Amendment or doesn’t care about the United States Constitution.

Both of those things can be true.

From Daily Caller:

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate made the comments during a July 2000 appearance on CSPAN’s “Washington Journal.” At the time, he was a member of the Newark, New Jersey Municipal Council.

When asked if he would “ban guns,” Booker replied: “I am very much one that is against handguns. And I know, in my urban environment, I see little to no need for guns at all, and I think that the availability of guns and the ease with which even young people can get their hands on them is just horrendous, and I would, if I had the power to do so, I would. In fact, we’re even looking towards making, doing some local level handgun legislation. I’m going to take every step I can to get guns of the hands of those who commit crimes or those who might commit crimes.

Arizona governor signs bill legalizing nunchucks

H/T Fox News.

Residents of Arizona are a little freer thanks to Governor Doug Ducey(R-AZ)signing this bill to legalize nunchucks. 

It’s now legal to own nunchucks in the state of Arizona — if you’re so inclined.

Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation on Friday to remove them from the state’s banned-deadly-weapons list.

Until now, martial arts devotees had to worry about possible felony charges for carrying the weapons in public. Arizona had allowed people to use the weapon — consisting of two sticks connected at one end by a short chain or rope — solely to prepare for competitions.

The state has some of the strictest weapon laws and lawmakers have tried to relax restrictions in the past. Nunchucks had been lumped in with bombs, gun silencers and automatic firearms, according to FOX 10.

Backers of the bill felt there are far more dangerous weapons to worry about than nunchucks.

“The average person can do far more damage using a baseball bat than nunchucks,” said Rep. John Kavanaugh, a Republican from Fountain Hills. “They’re not dangerous to anybody. And we really should let kids and adults who want to do martial arts activities legally possess them.”

McDojoLife, a media company that features mixed martial arts content, tweeted excitedly about the new measure.

Opponents of the bill felt lawmakers should spend their time limiting gun violence, not dedicating themselves to the kinds of contraptions you might see in a Bruce Lee movie.

“Instead of figuring out ways that we can save lives, we’re wasting time on nunchucks,” said Rep. Athena Salman, a Tempe Democrat.

Rep. Crow (D) Refuses to Apologize for Pushing Gun-Control at STEM Shooting Vigil

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Representative Jason Crow(Delusional-CO)a ghoul dancing on the graves of recent murder victims.

Democratic Congressman Jason Crow (Colo.) is refusing to apologize for pushing gun-control at a vigil for victims of the STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting.

Crow, a freshman who represents STEM in the U.S. House of Representatives, released a statement defending remarks he made at a vigil on Wednesday organized by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. The remarks, along with those made by Colorado’s senior Senator Michael Bennet (D.), triggered a massive walkout from students and survivors of the shooting. The students accused both Crow and Bennet of politicizing their grief in favor of their gun-control agenda.

“It is my job to show up and support my community during times of tragedy,” Crow said on Thursday. “I grieve for what Highlands Ranch and our families have been through.” A copy of the statement was shared on social media by local Colorado reporter.

“The last few days I have been asked the same question over and over again: what are you doing to stop this from happening?” Crow continued. “It is my job to take tough questions and offer real solutions. Bottomline, everyone needs to listen to those most impacted by this violence to learn how we can move forward, and that begins with listening to the students of STEM school.

NEW: statement from @RepJasonCrow on student walkout in protest of political tone of vigil. Crow, unlike the vigil organizer @bradybuzz, is not apologizing.

94 people are talking about this

Wednesday’s demonstration occurred one day after two gunmen opened fire at STEM resulting in the death of one student and the wounding of eight others. The fatality occurred when Kendrick Castillo, an 18-year-old senior, was wounded heroically leading a group of his fellow students to subdue the gunmen.

It was Bennet’s decision to invoke Castillo’s bravery at the vigil that initially sparked the ill-feelings that led to the walkout. The senator, who recently announced his campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, told the 2,000 in attendance that Congress had failed to fix “America’s broken gun laws,” so students like, Castillo, were forced to “give up their own life…to save their classmates’ lives.” When it was his turn to speak, Crow only upset those gathered even more by saying “they already” had his “thoughts and prayers” but deserved and “should demand more.”

After the remarks, a large portion of the students chose to walkout to the parking lot, rather than remain at the vigil.

“Don’t use Kendrick’s name for political reasons!” students shouted while leaving, as the Highlands Ranch Herald noted. Others chanted “Mental Health!” and “It’s not about guns,” when making their way out the door.

Before releasing his statement on Thursday, Crow introduced legislation to prohibit gun sales to individuals residing outside of the state where the purchase is taking place.

 

Florida Gov. Signs Bill Allowing Armed Teachers for Classroom Defense

H/T Breitbart.

Bravo to Governor Ron De Santis(R-FL)for turning Floridas teachers from sheep to sheepdogs to help protect students.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed legislation Wednesday that will allow teachers to be armed for classroom defense.

Fox News reports that the bill was an expansion of the state’s “Guardian” program and opens the door for any teacher “to carry a weapon if his or her school district approves.” Teachers wishing to carry a weapon will have to complete “at least 144 hours of police-style training, psychiatric evaluation and drug screening.”

Breitbart News reported that Florida’s House and Senate passed the legislation in response to the findings of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission. That investigatory commission found armed teachers could have made a difference in the February 14, 2018, Parkland shooting.

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri headed the commission and spoke out in favor of arming teachers as the investigation concluded. The Associated Press quoted Gualtieri saying, “People need to keep an open mind to it as the reality is that if someone else in that school had a gun it could have saved kids’ lives.”

The Parkland attacker paused to reload five times. Each pause represented an opportunity in which an armed teacher could have taken the gunman out.

Man Rushed To Hospital After Shooting Himself In Groin

H/T Bearing Arms.

Hopefully, he will be prevented from either polluting the gene pool or further polluting the gene pool.

When learning how to shoot in self-defense, folks are told to aim for center mass. Not only is it the largest part of the body, thus the least hard to hit, it’s also the part that contains all the vital organs. As such, it’s much more likely to stop the target with a good hit to the center mass.

However, a man recently hit probably the most difficult target possible. Too bad for him that it was his own “difficult target.”

Peter Jacobsson’s alleged .22-caliber gun dropped out of his pocket, hit the ground and fired on a busy street on Wednesday, detectives believe.

And the bullet hit the 32-year-old’s manhood in Lincoln, Nebraska.

He has had treatment in hospital to gruesome injuries to his genitals, local media reports.

The man remains in a non life-threatening condition in hospital but has been charged with various offences.

Luke Bonkiewicz, an officer with Lincoln Police Department, said the botched shooting happened on Wednesday at around 8.45pm near Bryan West Campus, a medical centre in the Irvingdale area of the town.

Police believe that Jacobsson was walking around when his weapon fell out of his pocket and discharged.

This, of course, suggests quite a few things for folks to learn from.

One is that this was not a particularly high-quality firearm. While the Sig P320 reportedly had an issue with firing if dropped if it hit the ground at a particular angle, the P320 isn’t exactly a pocket pistol nor is it a .22. Most quality firearms aren’t going to go off when dropped. Crappy guns? Oh, they’re a whole other kettle of fish.

This, of course, assumes nothing caught on the trigger during the fall. If that happened, then someone’s trigger was too light, though I’ll grant that may be my personal preferences talking.

Another is that clearly, he wasn’t carrying in a holster. Holsters tend to prevent guns from dropping. They also shield the trigger from being accidentally pulled, at least to some degree.

In addition to having a taken a bullet in a part of the body no one wants to be shot in, Jacobsson is also facing criminal charges. He’s been charged on suspicion of discharging a firearm in the city as well as possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person. That’s right, Jacobsson was someone who wasn’t allowed to own or carry a firearm.

So in addition to serving as a life lesson on how not to carry a firearm, Mr. Jacobsson is a lesson on how useless gun control is. Not only was he armed, but he was carrying a gun without a concealed carry permit. It’s almost like gun control doesn’t stop people like him.

The upside here is that at least Jacobsson may well have taken himself out of the gene pool. If he didn’t, it’s only because it was a .22 and not something more like a .45 or even larger.

Sen. Cory Booker Wants to Put Gun Owners in Jail

H/T Godfather Politics.

Senator Cory Booker(Delusional-NJ)needs to understand the Constitution contains these pesky ten amendments called the Bill of Rights.

And amendment number two contains the words “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

So you can take your jail threats and shove them up your lying self righteous hypocritical liberal ass.

Democrat Senator Cory Booker, who thinks he’s running for president, wants to put American gun owners in jail if they don’t give away their guns.

Booker is getting almost no traction in the 2020 race for president. According to the Real Clear Politics averagee the New Jersey Sen. is struggling at the bottom of the field ranking in with a tiny 2.5 percent.

It isn’t likely he’ll ever get much higher than that, either.

But, his attack on the Second Amendment won’t help him with the bulk of America.

But Booker needs a big hit, something to get him noticed. Apparently, he is banking on the left’s hate for our Constitutional rights to be that boost. But even so, he’s obviously unwilling to take his attack on the Second Amendment all the way to its logical end… or at least won’t say it out loud.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Mikhael Smits tweeted Booker’s CNN clip and said: “Cory Booker won’t say whether he’ll jail Americans who refuse to surrender firearms they lawfully purchased if he’s president.”

Cory Booker won’t say whether he’ll jail Americans who refuse to surrender firearms they lawfully purchased if he’s president:

In the clip, CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Booker if he agrees with leftist nut Eric Swalwell who wants a forced gun buy-back program that would result in jail for gun owners who don’t want to give up their guns.

Booker tried to avoid the question to start with saying, “the critical thing is I think most Americans agree that these weapons of war should not be on our streets.”

Before we go on, this leftist “weapons of war” trope is an outright lie. NO GUNbeing sold to Americans is a “weapon of war.” Most of these lie-filled liberals are calling rifles like the AR15 a “weapon of war.” But the fact is, no nation on earth (including the U.S.A.) uses any rifle like the AR15 as a military weapon of war. Not. A. Single. One.

Anyway, Harlow did not let Booker get away with his non-reply.

“But would you prosecute people?” Harlow asked. “Do you support the government buying them back and if not, potentially people could go to jail if they don’t want to sell them back? Yes or no?”

Booker again tried not to answer the question.

“Again, we should have a law that bans these weapons and we should have a reasonable period in which people can turn in these weapons,” Booker said. “Right now, we have a nation that allows in streets and communities like mine these weapons that should not exist.”

But the inescapable fact is, if Booker gets his way these guns will be illegal and that means anyone who wants to keep these weapons will be outlaws that by necessity will have to face arrest.

Booker doesn’t want to say it out loud. But his policies would necessarily mean that he wants to jail gun owners.
