“DENVER — Gun sales are surging in the wake of Sunday’s deadly mass shooting in Orlando, Fla. The tragedy is generating new debate over gun control reform and the right to bear arms.
Gun shops typically see a spike in customers after mass shootings. But this time, many are seeing shoppers they’ve never really seen before: More gays and lesbians.
George Horne, the owner of The Gun Room, Denver’s oldest firearms dealer, said Tuesday business is booming at his store.
“For this time of year I’d say its three to four times what we normally have,” he said.
Background checks that once took minutes can now take hours. It’s a sales surge similar to what happened after Sandy Hook and the Aurora theater shootings.
“We’re not surprised by it,” Horne said.
However, what’s different this time around is the clientele. Mike Smith, a firearms instructor in Colorado Springs, is one of many closely tracking the sudden surge in gays and lesbians buying weapons.
“I think right now because of what happened, people are looking for answers,” he said. “You walk into a gun shop and you expect to see people, frankly, who look like me. I think we forget we’re a country of all people, not just people who fit that predetermined mold.”
The gays need to stop the hate
Living in fear promotes violence
What we need is understanding
Not more guns
Hate and killing are a vicious cycle whose legacy we already have enough of
If you know someone gay
Tell them to stop the hate
And be part of the solution
Not the problem
“WASHINGTON — State flags, including the controversial Mississippi flag featuring the Confederate battle emblem, will no longer hang in the tunnel at the U.S. Capitol where each had been displayed.
Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., said Thursday the flags, which had been removed during renovations, will instead be replaced with prints of each state’s commemorative coin.”
This behemoth no longer consists of a conglomeration of the states
It now exists as a tyrannical bureaucracy who’s sole purpose is it’s own existence
What we have now is is the equivalent of Soviet style cold war rule
There is no representation and this election is removing the very guise of it
“In Marxist–Leninist states, the party is seen as “the vanguard of the people” and from that legitimizes itself to lead the state. In that way, the party officials in the Politburo informally lead the state.
Officially, the Party Congress elects a Central Committee which, in turn, elects the Politburo and General Secretary in a process termed democratic centralism. The Politburo was theoretically answerable to the Central Committee. Under Stalin this model was reversed, and it was the General Secretary who determined the composition of the Politburo and Central Committee. This tendency decreased to some extent after Stalin’s death, though in practice the Politburo remained a self-perpetuating body whose decisions de facto had the force of law.” Wiki
Let me tell you what
I set forth here my claim as a human being, to the right to avail for
my freedom. Given innately in all men is the desire to live free without
the bonds of tyranny, injustice or oppression. Along with this desire ,
granted by the gods of whichever choosing, is the absolute,
unassailable right to select the course upon which one’s own destiny
shall set forth. I do not claim the right to freedom or justice or
equality; Rather I claim only the right to fight for these things, the
power granted me by my birth, to throw off the chains of oppression, to
balance the scales of justice, to break the bonds of tyranny which
stifle men’s souls, or to die in the effort. I can live bound and
chained under the jackboot of authority, or I can die and die a free
man; An honorable death, handed down to me by my ancestors, who have
long bled their life’s blood into the fertile fields of battle, slain,
but not oppressed, at the sword point of tyranny. So I say, as said my
fore bearers, that you may lay claim against my battered , broken body, my
shattered sword, my spilt blood still warm, but never , ever my freedom
or my soul. And if my body or my blood you desire then to your hand I
shall deliver it, but the price that you will pay, so help me God, shall
be bitter and dear.

One person in scrubs and an employee of Planned Parenthood were just placed in police cars and taken to another staging area.
The man who was searching for his daughter began hopping up and down as soon as he saw his daughter being taken away in a police cars.
“She’s all right,” the man said.
There was a moment this afternoon when a man walked up to the scene with a handgun strapped to his waist and ammunition vest around his chest. He appeared to be asking police if he could help. Officers told him to leave immediately because appearing at the scene while wearing firearms and that equipment was a bad idea.”

Here are the 16 reports of police misconduct tracked for Tuesday, November 3 and Wednesday November 4, 2015:
“Fox Lake Police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz sent text messages to an unnamed woman asking her to help find a motorcycle gang member to kill Anne Marrin, the village manager who was auditing the Fox Lake Police Explorers unit, police said. Investigators later found Gliniewicz embezzled some $50,000 from the youth training club over a period of seven years to pay for travel, gym memberships and adult websites.
Gliniewicz also mentioned the possibility of planting something on Marrin, police said. Packets of cocaine were found in his desk, but it is unclear if they were to be used on Marrin.
“It’s very unsettling. My concern is my family. It’s quite unbelievable and almost surreal,” Marrin said. “It’s a very scary thought that an officer sworn to uphold the law would even think to do that to an administrator.”
Yeah, I caught all kinds of flak on the news sites when this guy bought it
I was accused of being a leftist, an occutard, an anarchist and worse
I actually had one cop sucker wish the death of my family while I frantically called for police who would never come
Because I thought people were a little out of hand saying that whoever shot this hero should be summarily executed
Shot down like dogs, hung from the nearest tree
Who needs a trial, just kill them where you find them
And this from people who purport to be on the same side as I am
They would not even look at the fact the Fox lake police chief resigned while under investigation along with another just days before
They felt re-assured by the overwhelming local and federal police response
See? This is what happens when a cop is gunned down
One of those heroes who puts his life on the line every day
We must keep them safe
Except for the fact that all during that response they already knew that he was under investigation
So, to all you cop suckers out there who will never see the truth because you are so busy defending someone just because they put on a uniform
Happy Friday everyone
I just like the wooden furniture
Bag full of money
Really nice gun
“The White House confirmed that President Obama was preparing a series of executive actions on gun control to match his recent passion on the issue after the latest mass shooting in Oregon.
“It’s a high priority and will continue to be until we start to see more progress on this issue in this town,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters today at the press briefing.
Earnest said he would “quibble” with anyone who criticized the president for not voicing any specific gun control proposals during his press conference, asserting that the White House was working behind the scenes for more executive actions on guns.
“I can tell you that they’re not stumped, they’re continuing to review the law that’s on the books and continuing to consult with legal authorities but also others who may have ideas about what steps that can be taken to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,” Earnest said.”
Man these democrats just can’t wait to see what a civil war looks like
From Zero to Clinton to all of them in between they will not rest
I hope they realize how ugly it will be if they get their way
There won’t be enough light posts to hang the bastards from
Hahaha! I have been blocked from better sites than that
If you dare to not follow their narrative while they are busy cop sucking they will block you
The narrative that they were following was it was all wrong for a border patrol agent to be charged in a shooting
He shot a 16 Yr. old kid on the other side of the border that he claimed was throwing rocks
All the commenters on Twitchy wanted to give him a medal
My thoughts were more like, Why not move out of range of the rocks seeing how he is on the Mexican side of the border
Apparently those charging him saw it that way too
“Capitol Police are investigating a man identifying himself as an “Oathkeeper” and an “American Patriot who has everything to lose” who has threatened to arrest Sen. Debbie Stabenow for treason because of her support for the Iran nuclear deal.
Jon Ritzheimer, the Arizona resident who reportedly attracted FBI attention when he organized an anti-Muslim protest rally and “draw Muhammad” cartoon contest at a Phoenix mosque, shared his plan to organize with fellow U.S. Marines in an open letter posted online Monday.
“We are planning on arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow, who voted yes to the Iran Nuke Deal. She will be arrested for treason under Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution,” states the letter. “We have chosen her as our first target due to our strong ties with the Michigan State Militia and their lax gun laws that will allow us to operate in a manner necessary for an operation like this.”
Ritzheimer, 31, claims that after successfully detaining the Michigan Democrat, he and his armed militia “will continue to move across the country and arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal” including the president.”
Now that would get the ball rolling!
Man, we could make that the most popular sport in America

(CNN) For far too long, Democrats have been too afraid to stand up to the gun lobby.
It’s time for that to change. If I am elected president, I will make reducing and preventing gun violence one of my 15 goals to rebuild the American dream. And right now, I am putting forward a comprehensive policy plan for cutting deaths from gun violence in half — homicides, suicides, and accidents — within 10 years.
My plan starts with expanding safeguards to all gun purchases, whether from a licensed dealer, online posting, or private sale. Under my plan, a background check would be required for each and every gun purchase. And every person seeking to purchase or transfer a gun would have to obtain a fingerprint-based license, including completing safety training and a waiting period. Without such protections, it will remain far too easy for criminals to legally buy guns.
My plan will also cut gun violence by focusing on the largest purchaser of firearms: our government. By adjusting federal procurement policies, the federal government can encourage both gun manufacturers and dealers to prevent trafficking and violence, while spurring innovations that improve gun safety. This means requiring agencies to purchase only cutting-edge guns, such as those that have hidden serial numbers that cannot be defaced.
Guns are now the second leading cause of death among children and teens, so I would take steps to require safe storage of guns at home. Because gun violence is committed disproportionately by young people, I would set a national age requirement of 21 for all handgun purchases and handgun possession. And because the U.S. is the most dangerous country in the developed world for women when it comes to gun violence, I would fight to close loopholes that allow domestic abusers to own and purchase guns.
Above all, law enforcement must be empowered to uphold these protective measures — by revoking the licenses of dealers whose guns routinely end up in the hands of criminals. And to shut down the pipeline of illegal guns that flow from states with weak gun laws to states with strong ones, we should establish strong federal penalties for gun traffickers. Possessing marijuana can be a felony under federal law; outrageously, trafficking guns is not.
Even as the vast majority of gun owners are law-abiding, we know the immense harm that comes if guns end up in the wrong hands. By establishing a national firearms registry, we can track guns to the root cause of tragedies. By requiring all lost or stolen firearms to be reported to law enforcement, we can monitor the number of illegal guns in our communities.
My comprehensive plan will not stop every senseless gun death. But it will ensure that fewer families are needlessly torn apart by gun violence.

“DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — The G.B.I. says the DeKalb County police officer that entered the wrong home for a burglary call was accidentally shot by another officer, not by the homeowner.
The incident happened on Boulderwoods Drive around 7:35 Monday night. Three officers arrived at the residence and attempted to contact any occupants inside. When no contact was made, the officers made their way around to the rear of the home and gained entry to the residence through a screened porch. The G.B.I. said police went through a “reportedly unlocked door”.
Upon entry, the officers encountered a dog. Two officers fired their weapons striking and killing the animal. A male in the home, later determined to be the homeowner, was also shot by the responding officers.
One of the police officers, identified as Travis Jones, was shot in the hip. The G.B.I. says their early investigation indicates Jones was likely shot accidentally by one of the other officers at the scene.”

“SEPTEMBER 7–In a bid to “exact revenge” on a high school student, a Florida teenager broke into his rival’s car and planted a loaded gun, a knife, and a bag of marijuana and then instructed an acquaintance to contact police to report spotting the items in the vehicle, according to court records.
The alleged plot to frame the student backfired after a witness told cops that they had spotted James Harrison, 18, breaking into the victim’s 1988 Honda while it was parked Tuesday in a lot at Clearwater High School.
As detailed in a series of criminal complaints, Harrison placed a Smith & Wesson .38 caliber revolver, a knife, and a “52 gram bag of marijuana” inside the Honda around 9:30 AM on August 31. The gun, cops noted, had its serial number ground off.
Harrison then “directed another person to contact the school resource officer and Crimestoppers to report it,” according to investigators. “The goal was to have the vehicle’s driver…arrested for serious offenses and removed from the school to exact revenge.”
Yeah baby! Go big or go home!
What a dolt
He allows himself to be spotted breaking into the car
Hey, who is going to notice some 300Lb. kid? right?

“Fox Lake Police Chief Michael Behan announced he is retiring less than a week after he was put on paid administrative leave during a village investigation into an altercation between an officer and a man who was arrested last year, according to a news release from the village.
According to the statement, Behan, 55, told the village board he had decided to retire this month. He will step down at the end of the week but will continue cooperating with the investigation, village officials said.
Fox Lake village administrator Anne Marrin said the village began investigating a December 2014 altercation between a 36-year-old man arrested for public intoxication and a Fox Lake police officer this month.
The officer, who the village has not named, was also put on paid administrative leave last week.
The officer was disciplined at the time but “the village has concerns with respect to how the incident was investigated, when it was investigated and how decisions regarding findings and discipline were reached,” Marrin said in a statement last week.”
