This means one less camel riding goat humping bastard in the world..
Remember when Trump promised ‘so much winning’? Chalk this up in the ‘Promises Kept’ column.
There were a few key promises that Trump built his successful election run around that, taken together, became his “America First” MAGA agenda.
The economy was obviously key for a career businessman.
National security and ‘build that wall’ were obviously central.
But just as central to those promises was Trump’s promise to ‘Bomb the S**t’ out of ISIS.
He saw those ‘javee teams’ of Islamic terrorists as a global menace that needed to be humiliated on a global level.
What better way to send that message than taking out the heir (and son) of history’s most infamous jihadi leader? This son had been ‘cultivated’ to take OBL’s mantle by none other than Osama himself.
Instead of striking some ‘great blow’ against his hated foe in the West, he has become just another in a long line of feral dogs put down by the US military and our allies.
“Hamza bin Laden, the high-ranking al-Qaeda member and son of Osama bin Laden, was killed in a United States counterterrorism operation in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region,” Trump said in a brief statement issued by the White House.
“The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives Al-Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group.”
Yes, dear readers, Hamza has been smoked like a ham, and he’s now discovering first-hand just how wrong his ideas about eternity really are.
So. Much. Winning.
You know what?
News like this calls for a little celebratory gloating.
Get the word out to those jihadis striking out from the shadows… America will continue to be the threat their punks have to look under their bed for when they go to sleep at night.
An employee of the range, that was helping the man at the time, went to him immediately and offered help. He was able to stop the bleeding within one minute.
He was taken to the hospital for treatment, and hopefully some valuable lessons learned.
While the Sgt. states that he ‘hit the slide release or the safety’, I’d challenge that assessment and say that either the man was using an improper or inadequate holster for the firearm, or something got into the trigger guard such as a piece of clothing.
Whatever the case, negligent discharges are 100% avoidable, every time. Let’s always be mindful of what we are doing when handling firearms. Always.
It would be tough to shoot a total stranger but it would be harder to shoot a family member even in self-defense.
SUMMERVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA — A man was forced to shoot his own brother in a case of self- defense, police say. As unreal as this may sound, here is how local media say things went down;
Paul Felkel Rush, 53, of Summerville was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Dorchester County coroner.
“Come on, stay with me! Stay with me!,” Paul’s brother can be heard saying in the 911 calls. “My brother attacked me, so I had to shoot him. Hurry up and get here!”
When officers arrived, they found Paul’s brother in the yard waving them down and took him into custody. Officers then found Paul Rush on the ground inside the house and unsuccessfully tried to revive him.
There was no mention in the news report as to what transpired that night, but it would seem that the attack was enough to warrant lethal self defense.
It’s the worst nightmare of many to think that they would ever need to shoot a member of their own family, but incidents like this do happen once in a while.
It’s a sad time for the family, as one cannot imagine what a person would be going through after shooting and killing his own brother.
Family or not, there sometimes comes a moment where the fear of death is so great, it doesn’t matter who the threat is. We hope it’s never someone we know, but reality shows us that this is not always the case.
Robert Francis O’Rourke’s mouth is a gift to the GOP and the NRA.
He proves what every gun owner in America knows that the DemocRats want gun confiscation and not gun control.
Democrat senators currently pushing gun control laws worry presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke torpedoed any chance of passage via his insistence on firearm confiscation.
Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke talked of confiscating firearms during the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate. He said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”
During an appearance on MSNBC the next morning, O’Rourke made clear that handing over AR-15s will be “mandatory” under his plan. Breitbart News reported that O’Rourke’s push was a game-changer, proving the left’s goal is gun seizure.
The Associated Press noted that Second Amendment Foundation founder Alan Gottlieb welcomed O’Rourke’s push, simply for the damage that it does to the gun control movement. Gottlieb said, “This is what their goal is. We’ve always said it, now they’re saying it. Now they’ve said it and we’re going to make them eat it.”
Democrat senators pushing gun control are not happy with O’Rourke’s push. Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) explicitly stated that he does not support the confiscatory push. CNN quoted Coons saying, “I don’t think a majority of the Senate or the country is going to embrace mandatory buybacks. We need to focus on what we can get done.”
Gun control Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) is also disgruntled by O’Rourke’s push.
Holywood’s hypocrisy regarding firearms has long been evident. Many actors with a near rabid anti-gun stance regularly take parts in movies where firearms play an almost central roll – very often full auto as well as handguns. These actors if they actually had a true conscience would not accept parts where guns are involved – but the mighty Dollar of course talks louder – money beats principles!
This will be interesting to see how this plays out in court.
I do not see Walmart being able to supersede state laws.
Virginia – -(AmmoLand.com)- Virginia Citizens Defense League has been made aware of an incident at a Walmart in Kentucky where someone open carrying a handgun was approached by police and asked to sign a trespass document saying he acknowledges being banned for Walmart property anywhere in the U.S., indefinitely.
That contradicts the official policy as laid out by Walmart’s CEO.
I have also heard from a third party that Walmart is going to post their stores “no open carry.” However, I’m not taking that as Gospel until someone actually sees such a sign.
In the meantime, I recommend that you do not open carry in Walmart for at least a week until we see if such a sign materializes or we get more definitive information from Walmart.
Concealed carry remains a safe option, as Walmart’s policy specifically allows for such.
Walmart Pushing Gun Control Ala Dicks Sporting Goods
Walmart is now behaving much like Dicks Sporting Goods by pushing gun control and is going to lose a lot of business from gun owners, accordingly.
Walmart claims to be working with Moms Demand Action on lobbying Congress to look at “strengthening background checks,” to “remove weapons from those proven to pose an imminent danger,” and “the reauthorization of the assault weapon ban should be debated to determine its effectiveness.”
Lobbying Congress for more gun control crosses the line.
To hear the Walmart internal memo on gun policy read on the Guns & Gadgets podcast, click here and go to the 1-minute mark.
Clear above to watch the video of the trespass incident in the Kentucky Walmart and go here to see the follow-up video. I really don’t like how the police handled this incident. So much for the Walmart CEO’s claim that gun customers will be treated respectfully and non-confrontationally.
Tomorrow an alert will have more information on how to handle such an incident.

Opinion By Larry Keane
USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- We don’t talk a lot here about the group “March for Our Lives.” Certainly, everyone loves to see young people passionately arguing for their ideas, and this is no exception.
The problems come about when the ideas are reheated leftovers from other gun control groups. For example, the group recently released their “Peace Plan for a Safer America.” Great title, but unfortunately these ideas aren’t new and aren’t effective. In fact, they will only serve to irrationally punish law-abiding citizens exercising their Second Amendment rights, without creating “Peace” in any community.
Name-calling and Unfounded Charges
The plan starts off by erroneously labeling the criminal misuse of firearms as a “national public health emergency.” That’s wrong. And as we have said many times before, without an accurate description of the root causes of violence in our communities, we can’t identify real solutions that will help.
Even before the plan dives into the action items the youthful authors would like to see enacted, they argue that the next president, “must commit to holding an unpatriotic gun lobby and gun industry accountable not just for weakening our nation’s gun laws, but also for illegal behavior in self-dealing that offends and contradicts America’s vast majority of responsible gun owners.”
As the trade association for the firearms and ammunition industry, we find this statement both outlandish and offensive. Far from being the “unpatriotic” boogeyman, we are an industry that proactively funds and develops programs to create real solutions for safer communities. There is no more patriotic industry in America.
But putting aside the snarky insults for a moment, the real problem with the plan is the actual policies proposed. Let’s look at just a few of the highlights here, and why we would encourage these young adults to do some serious research on these issues.
“a national licensing and registry system that promotes responsible gun ownership”
The research the youth use to back this up is extremely biased and discredited.
“a ban on assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and other weapons of war”
Just because a semi-automatic rifle is designed to cosmetically look similar to military firearms doesn’t change the fact that they are not. Modern sporting rifles fire one bullet with each pull of the trigger, same as more traditional-looking rifles. They are also rarely misused by criminals. And arbitrarily banning common magazine capacities will not reduce crime.
and a national gun buy-back program to reduce the estimated 265-393 million firearms in circulation by at least 30%.
There’s far more in the plan that we could tackle in a single blog post. Suffice it to say, they need to do their homework. Particularly when they call for holding “the gun lobby and industry accountable for decades of illegal behavior and misguided policies intended to shield only themselves…” As a heavily regulated industry, the firearms and ammunition industry prides itself on high rates of compliance and on our voluntary programs, often in partnership with state and federal government agencies, to help curtail the actual problems of guns illegally getting into the wrong hands. We – not gun control advocates – work successfully to make sure states are submitting all prohibiting records to NICS. We provide tens of millions of free gun locks and educational materials in all states. In partnership with ATF, we train our members to spot straw purchasers, to comply with all laws, and to use discretion when making transactions and keeping their inventory secure. We work with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to help address the crisis of suicides in our country.
Sorry kids, we give this plan an F and suggest doing your own work, rather than copying straight from the ineffective gun control playbook.
