The New D.C. “May Issue” Law

BY Herschel Smith
3 hours, 25 minutes ago

Is D.C. finally finished fighting the supreme and appeals courts and the constitution of the United States?

Within weeks, civilian gun owners could be free to apply to carry a concealed weapon in the nation’s capital for the first time in decades, after a federal judge’s ruling prompted city leaders to create new firearms law.

The proposed law, set to be unveiled at a Wednesday afternoon news conference, was drafted by city officials after the city’s long-standing ban on carrying firearms in public was declared unconstitutional in July.

D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D), who played a lead role in developing the gun-carry proposal and spoke about it ahead of the news conference, said the emergency legislation put together in recent weeks will be scheduled for a council vote on Tuesday.

The bill, Mendelson said, will permit city residents who own duly registered handguns and non-residents who hold state carrying licenses to apply to the D.C. police for a concealed carry permit. So-called open carry, such as the wearing of a weapon in a holster, will not be allowed under the proposed law, he said.

D.C. carry permits will be issued on a “may carry” basis, giving great discretion to D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier on who will be allowed to carry firearms in the city. Applicants will have to state a reason for seeking a permit, Mendelson said.

So things are not so well in D.C. after all.  “May issue” states become no issue states in practice unless they are forced by law to be otherwise.  The wealthy, politically connected and powerful get their permits, while others have to demonstrate why they need one to the approval of the top cop, as if self defense isn’t good enough and the constitution doesn’t speak loudly enough on the issue.

There is more from The Washington Times: “People who have a “good reason” to feel threatened — for example, stalking victims — would be able to seek a concealed carry permit for a legally owned handgun under a new D.C. law proposed Thursday. But those with generalized fears, such as apprehension about living in a neighborhood with high crime, would not be considered eligible for such a permit, officials say.”

I sense yet another court case – or cases – coming for D.C.  Apparently they haven’t given up being totalitarians.  They like their control and aren’t ready to share it yet.

Sour Grapes At Remington?

BY Herschel Smith
2 days, 4 hours ago

Utica Observer-Dispatch:

Jennifer Brown is scared, and with good reason.

When Remington Arms laid off 105 people Aug. 22, they were chosen strictly based on seniority. Now, 26-year-old Jennifer, who was hired in January 2013, is No. 9 on the list.

“I have my family to support,” the mother of two said. “A house, a car payment.”

“The morale in (the Ilion factory) is really low and people are waiting for more,” said her father, Frank “Rusty” Brown, chairman of the UMWA Local 717 Compac Committee.

For a family such as the Browns, more layoffs could be detrimental.

Rusty’s mother, Barbara, 71, joined Remington in the 1970s on the bottom floor, slowly working her way upward in the million-square-foot facility before retiring in 2005. Her husband, Steve, worked there, too.

Rusty and his wife, Lisha, followed in their footsteps in the mid-1990s — Rusty a furnace technician and Lisha working in inventory control.

Now, Jennifer and her sister Jessica have carried on the tradition.

Jessica, 27, was hired in 2009 when Remington Arms was bringing in new product lines, such as Marlin brand firearms.

“I was working at Kmart before there,” she said. “Trying to support a kid off minimum wage is not easy.”

The Brown family epitomizes the Ilion-Remington Arms relationship.

“You’re looking at three generations of people who have the experience, who’ve gone into that factory and have learned from Day One and have advanced through the machinery changes,” Rusty said.

“(Remington Arms is) going to find a big difference in employees when they go to Alabama,” Barbara added.

Rusty doesn’t think the move has anything to do with politics, though.

“I’m tired of hearing everybody say, ‘It’s the SAFE Act and it’s Gov. Cuomo,’” Rusty said. “The company’s not telling anyone that.”

Instead, he said, it’s because business has slowed down.

“The biggest thing with the upsurge that we had in hiring was that we were supposed to be the facility of choice,” Lisha said. “They brought everything to us.”

At its height, Rusty said, the Ilion facility was producing almost 2,000 Bushmasters a day — and that’s just one Remington Arms product.

“We overproduced,” he said. “We did what was demanded, or asked, of us. We met every challenge we had. Now, we see product lines going away.”

And with those lines went the jobs.

So exactly what difference will Remington find in employees when they move to Alabama, except for non-union wages and the corollary company loyalty?  Is he suggesting that the “hicks” in Alabama can’t do what he can do?  There are good mechanics in Alabama too, sir.

To him, it has nothing to do with politics.  It has everything to do with the fact that they did everything demanded of them, they met all obligations and expectations, and so they overproduced and are now in a pickle.

Sour grapes much?  Does he think the union should have held back some on the production line?  Perhaps they would still have a job if the union had just done their job.

And there you have it, folks.  Unions.  Nothing more needs to be said.  Just watching and listening explains everything.

Notes From HPS

BY Herschel Smith
2 days, 4 hours ago

David Codrea:

Rejecting calls for more federal gun laws by the Rabbinical Council of America and the Orthodox Union, a dozen rabbis have issued a joint statement rebuking the position of those groups, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership announced Monday in a member alert and press release.

Offering their statement “in support of Jewish law, Jewish life and Jewish self-defense,” the dissenting rabbis refuted justifications given by the religious groups for promoting disarmament edicts … “Jewish history supports self-defense,” the rabbis declared. “It is remarkable that the RCA and OU have ignored the long Jewish history of persecution.

Of course it does.  My Christians, The Second Amendment And The Duty Of Self Defense relies on Biblical law – including O.T. law – for the case for self defense.  Jews are like “Christians” (I use quotes), in that some folks who call themselves Christians are not (perhaps a lot of folks), and while being Jewish is an ethnic thing, believing Biblical law isn’t.  There are many Jews who would sell out their own people.  Jews they are not.  Remember, I’ve talked to one.

Mike Vanderboegh on the hidden hazards of MRAPs.  Yea, that’s not all.  Watch over time and see just how many police forces will give them back or let them rot and rust in the fields or parking lots, unable to pay the thousands of dollars to buy a new tire when one goes flat, or send them back for maintenance because no one around them knows how to work on them.  This is especially true given the unfunded liabilities America faces, helping along the process of telling police that their retirements are in jeopardy (like Memphis had to do), or telling the Miami-Dade police they may no longer have jobs.

Shreveport Times:

Many assume police officers are rigorously trained before being allowed to patrol the streets.

But drive through rural Louisiana and it’s possible to be stopped by a law enforcement officer who’s never experienced a day of police academy and instruction on use of force, stressful scenarios and physical fitness that comes with it. Sometimes, an eight-hour firearms training and on-the-job guidance is all an officer gets before starting work as a salaried, gun-toting, arrest-making officer.

Due to a permissive aspect of state law, a hodgepodge of different standards can crop up from one small agency to the next. It’s a pattern experts say puts police departments, and the public, at risk.

You mean that cops aren’t trained as much as I am, and as much as I pursue on a regular basis for requalification with my firearm?  Actually, I’m not so much convinced that the problem is with training.  The problem stems from seeing themselves as something other than peace officers who are servants of the people.

The U.S. Army is worried about too few black officers and thus is making plans to increase said minority in the officer corps.  And the diminution of the armed forces continues unabated.

Daily Mail:

Islamist police in Saudi Arabia have stormed a Christian prayer meeting and arrested its entire congregation, including women and children, and confiscated their bibles, it has been reported.

The raid was the latest incident of a swingeing crackdown on religious minorities in Saudi Arabia by the country’s hard-line Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. 

The 28 Christians were said to be worshipping at the home of an Indian national in the eastern city of Khafji, when the police entered the building and took them into custody. They have not been seen or heard from since, raising concerns among human rights groups as to their whereabouts.

To all such Islamists: May God bring your plans to naught.  May your families revile you, may you lose your women and children, may you become sick and perish in ignominy.  Before you perish, may you watch as your country diminishes to ashes, may you see your belongings stolen from under your nose, may your children curse and strike you, and may your weeping be loud so that your countrymen can hear your lamentations.

And if you ever try that here, I will shoot your ass off and your intestines out of your stomach and leave your body for the vultures to consume, right after pouring swine innards over your open wounds.

Are Gun Background Check Claims True?

BY Herschel Smith
3 days, 4 hours ago

Reno Gazette-Journal:

Background checks for all handgun sales make women and police safer: The group cites a different report by Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

In this one, the group uses FBI data to come up with its own conclusions. It does this by compiling data from states with mandatory handgun background checks and those without to arrive at the claim that women and police are about 40 percent less likely to be killed with a handgun in states with mandatory checks.

Fact Checker started re-creating the finding about women but soon stopped after the first four states examined. New Hampshire and Vermont, which have no background check at shows, had much lower rates of women being killed by men than New York and New Jersey, which do require background checks on handguns at gun shows.

But that wasn’t the reason Fact Checker stopped this line of inquiry. The homicide statistics come from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports — and the FBI cautions against people comparing places based on the statistics because not all law enforcement agencies submit their data and there are other factors that can also comparisons, such as more densely populated areas vs. more rural places.

Further, the Mayors Against Illegal Guns report was not peer reviewed, it doesn’t share the numbers used to reach its conclusions, and it treats correlation as causation, strongly implying that lower rates of violence against women and police was caused by handgun background checks without even attempting to deal with all of the factors that would make the statistics less valid. One could just as easily come to the opposite conclusion by pointing to the surge in gun sales with a corresponding drop in murders of women over the past 20 years nationwide.

There has been a peer-reviewed study on this topic worth noting. A 2000 study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association examined data to see if the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act made a difference. The law was implemented in 1994 and instituted background checks and waiting periods for handgun sales. The study concluded that it was not associated with “reductions in homicide rates or overall suicide rates.”

Mark Robison does a very good job with his analysis.  He begins by addressing the charge that 40% of the firearms sold in the U.S. are sold without a background check, finding it false.  Frankly, I couldn’t care less if it was 100%, since I believe that the federal laws and regulations concerning such sales are an infringement of the Second Amendment.

However, it’s good to see honesty in the media, with the result that the claims of the anti-gunners are proven to be without merit.  Furthermore, the whole issue of peer review is important to me for reasons that I have pointed out before.

Note to the collectivists.  If you want your “studies” to hold any merit at all, analyze it, get a report written and a professional engineer’s seal on it, send it to me and let me analyze it, and then we’ll talk.  Until then, you’re just a nagging old woman making stuff up.

Civil Rights Update: Open Carry In Missouri

BY Herschel Smith
6 days, 12 hours ago

St. Louis Public Radio:

Missouri residents who have concealed-carry permits will be able to openly carry their firearms anywhere in the state, as a result of the General Assembly decision to override Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a broad gun-rights bill.

The bill prevents municipalities from barring people from openly carrying firearms, lowers the minimum age to 19 for concealed carry permits in the state, and allows school districts to arm teachers. Police officers also will be barred from disarming people unless they are under arrest.

The Missouri House voted 117-39 in favor of the override, with little debate, early Thursday morning.  The supporting votes included state Rep. Rick Stream, R-Kirkwood, who is running for St. Louis County executive.

Also backing the bill were two House members competing for the hot Senate seat in Jefferson County: Democrat Jeff Roorda and Republican Paul Wieland.

Earlier Wednesday, the Senate had voted 23-8 in favor of the bill. The number of supporters was the minimum needed to override a governor’s veto.

Backers say the law is needed to protect gun rights, and to prevent frivolous arrests of people carrying firearms.  Rep. Rick Brattin, R-Harrisonville, recommended that all Missourians be armed. “We live in a world that’s evil, that wants to harm each and every one,” he said.

State Rep. Stacey Newman, D-Richmond Heights, said the bill actually represented “big government” because it would “overrule cities and elected officials around the state” who have passed laws barring the open carry of weapons.

To be precise, Missouri is what’s called an anomalous open carry state, where the state lacks preemption.  Thus, while your open carry rights are recognized by the state, you may travel into locations (counties or cities) where law enforcement is not friendly to it, and run into trouble.  With the passing of this law, what’s good for one Missouri citizen is good for all Missouri citizens.

Next up on the bucket list?  Open carry in South Carolina when we put State Senator Larry Martin in his place.

Cornyn Endorsed By NRA

BY Herschel Smith
1 week ago

On Monday, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) endorsed Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) for re-election. The NRA-PVF, the political wing of the national gun rights organization, was enthusiastic in their support for Cornyn, noting that he had earned their “A+” rating, their “highest possible rating,” which they noted was used to designate legislators who not only have “an excellent voting record on critical NRA issues,” but also those “who have also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment.”

In a press release, Chris W. Cox, the NRA-PVF Chairman, called Cornyn “a leader in the U.S. Senate on self-defense laws,” and praised him for his tenure as Texas Attorney General, being the lead sponsor for the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, opposition to what Cox calls the “Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda,” including expansion of background checks that “would criminalize the private transfer of a firearm between life-long friends and many family members.”

Of course, there is no mention of Cornyn’s coupling with Lindsey Graham to formulate the so-called Graham-Cornyn Mental Health and Criminal Justice Reform Act.  I still cannot locate good intelligence on this abomination, but it greatly expands the ability to place flags on people in the NICS based on having sought treatment for mental health issues, leaving them flagged for life.

Readers know my position on mental health issues and guns.  There is no need to rehearse it again in this context, but I did learn something else about Cornyn tonight.  He is nonplussed about open carry.

BDS: Gun rights and the Second Amendment are a big part of the March primary in Texas, as you know, and several weeks ago there was a rally at the Alamo where people were encouraged to bring their loaded weapons and display them openly. I’m a gun owner, and I enjoy shooting. But I have to say that that type of display gives me pause. Would you support an expansion of open carry laws, which have been part of some Republican candidates’ message?

JC: I support concealed carry, and the training that people have to go through to get those things is a good thing. I’m not sure what the point is about open carry. I say that as an avid gun owner, but I’m not sure what the attraction is for that.

Nonplussed is a gracious way to put it.  Very well, then I’ll expect Cornyn’s national concealed carry act for all LEOs forcing them to conceal their weapons.  And that won’t happen, of course, because Cornyn doesn’t really believe what he says.

We are where we are today in part because the NRA grants high ratings to politicians who sell out gun owners.  We are expected to vote for the politician who is a little less bad than the alternative, an expectation I simply won’t abide.

Concerning TrackingPoint

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 1 day ago

An open letter concerning TrackingPoint from an anti-gunner:

On August 20, 2014, the National Gun Victims Action Council issued a press release calling for a ban of “Smart Scope” Military-Style Precision-Guided sniper rifles, manufactured by Texas-based TrackingPoint, from being sold to the public. These weapons, legally sold to civilians, allow even people who have never fired a gun to hit a target the size of a soup can from 1,000 yards away every time—that’s 10 football fields or over half a mile.

Promptly, the pro-gun outlets, Outdoor Life and Ammoland and Lee Williams of the Herald-Tribune issued pleas for sympathy and “understanding” for this weapon while non-gun extremists remained chillingly silent.

“If we start banning technology like this, what’s next? What scope is next? What firearm is next,” whined poor, victimized TrackingPoint in Williams’ Sept. 2 Herald-Tribune column. “We have to stand together to prevent this kind of erosion of our constitutional rights.”

And stand together they did. We, at NGVAC, received an enormous amount of email from followers of these outlets, explaining how ignorant we are, what a threat to the sanctity and security of our country we represent and how our “gun grabbing” legislation-driven agenda violates “constitutional rights.”

None of the defenders of the “can’t miss” Military-Style Precision-Guided Sniper rifle addressed its dangers to the public’s safety and indeed the safety of our public spaces or the fact that the weapon has no legitimate purpose such as self-defense or hunting by “real” hunters who rely on skill.

So if you’d never heard of Charles Whitman, didn’t know how to shoot a rifle, didn’t know how to use a scope, and didn’t know anything about how effective a bad guy can be with even rudimentary weaponry, and if you thought the second amendment was about hunting, and if you didn’t think much at all about amelioration of active shooter situations, you might write something like this.  But we all know better.

My problem with TrackingPoint has nothing whatsoever to do with how good they supposedly are.  First of all, such gadgetry is too expensive for me.  If I can purchase half a dozen high end rifles and scopes for the money I would pay for TrackingPoint products, I’ll just take the rifles and scopes, thank you very much.

Second, remember what TrackingPoint gave up when they sold out gun owners.

“Developed by military experts and over forty engineers, TrackingPoint precision guided firearms virtually eliminate shooter error,” the ad claims. “Their Tag-Track-Xact system more than doubles the proficiency of a skilled shooter by maximizing accuracy, taking into account a slew of variables such as wind speed, air pressure, and temperature. Such unprecedented accuracy enables shots at distances many shooters have never before attempted – up to 1200 yards.”

What’s not to like?

Well, while the right hand is providing American riflemen (albeit well-heeled ones, if you take a look at some of their prices) a chance to apply for one of their limited supply systems, the left hand is urging the government to adopt its patented technology for the Holy Grail behind the ultimate purpose of so-called “smart guns,” the ability for “authorities” to turn them off. Automatically.

“TrackingPoint patents technique to disable guns near schools and ‘gun free zones,’” Steve Johnson of The Firearm Blog reported on Tuesday.

“The invention uses a GPS or mobile phone towers to determine location, sensors to determine orientation and a mobile/radio network connection to download a list of’ ‘gun free’ locations from a central database,” he explained. “Tracking Point Chairman John] McHale suggests that a ‘Gun Free Zone’ database could be maintained by the BATFE.”

Right.  Just give up control over your weapon to the ATF.  Sounds like a plan to me.  You too can get started for just under $10,000.

More On Immigration And Gun Ownership

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 2 days ago

David Codrea:

Regular readers of this column know it is one of the few venues, following a lead established by Gun Owners of America, warning that the administration’s position — that those who have violated U.S. immigration and residency laws have “earned” the right to citizenship — will lead to an increase of millions of Democrat voters and a political threat to the right to keep and bear arms.

But forget what GOA says, and about past columns here, and again let’s focus solely on that which simply is. To do that, let’s again reference the AP report.

“Hispanics make up nearly 70 percent of the district that she seeks to represent, and nationally, Latinos overwhelmingly support Democrats,” it observes.

And nationally, aside from individual voting records which can be consulted, and aside from being the party from which the overwhelming majority of “gun control” measures are demanded, the official Democrat platform calls for “reasonable regulations … like reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole.”

Torres is in lockstep with that program.

I’m glad David has focused on this again.  It bears repeating.  Hispanics and Latinos will vote progressive because that’s their world view.

“For historical reasons to do with the nationalisation of the land under Lázaro Cárdenas and the predominant form of peasant land tenure, which was “village cooperative” rather than based on individual plots, the demand for “land to the tiller” in Mexico does not imply an individual plot for every peasant or rural worker or family. In Mexico, collectivism among the peasantry is a strong tradition … one consequence of these factors is that the radical political forces among the rural population are on the whole explicitly anti-capitalist and socialist in their ideology. Sometimes this outlook is expressed in support for guerilla organisations; but struggle movements of the rural population are widespread, and they spontaneously ally with the most militant city-based leftist organisations.”

One of the reasons for this reflexive alignment with leftism has to do with the the mid-twentieth century and what the Sovient Union and allied ideologies accomplished.  South and Central America was the recipient or receptacle for socialism draped in religious clothing, or in other words, liberation theology.  Its purveyors were Roman Catholic priests who had been trained in Marxism, and they were very successful in giving the leftists a moral platform upon which to build.  This ideology spread North from South and Central America into Mexico, and thus the common folk in Mexico are quite steeped in collectivist ideology from battles that were fought decades ago.

But just to rehearse the events that are occurring at breakneck speed, the GOP is about to be swamped with two million democratic voters.  There is a growing backlog at the immigration courts.

The backlog of pending deportation cases in federal immigration court has risen to nearly 400,000 amid a crush of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children and families caught crossing the Mexican border illegally this year, according an analysis of court data released Friday.

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University said in its latest report that as of the end of July, 396,552 cases were pending in the Justice Department’s 59 immigration courts. TRAC collects and studies a variety of federal prosecution records.

Cartels are taking over the border, and illegals have been recently responsible for kidnapping and extortion on American soil.

So in addition to ensuring that the civil war the progressives demand occurs, they are adding voters to the rolls to ensure that America is disarmed.  On one side are the bankers, politicians, DEA, DHS, DOJ, ATF, EPA and BLM, and on the other side is you.

Whatever fights you think we’ve had over guns until this point will prove to be skirmishes.  Hard times are coming, and the notion of ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ will take on new meaning.

Real Estate Agents Should Not Carry Guns

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 2 days ago

So says a real estate agent who is afraid of guns:

I am not in favor of real estate agents bringing guns to work, unlike my colleague Trey Garrison.

First and foremost, let me issue a positioning statement on guns. I recognize that we live in a scary world full of scary people. Realtors, real estate agents, brokers, and others have every right, duty, and responsibility to protect themselves.

But count me among those who think that the answer to gun violence is not introducing more guns into the equation.

That argument has never made any sense to me. It’s like saying we can defeat heart disease by eating more cheeseburgers.

The real answer is making sure we live in a safer world. I’ve often said that the world would be a better place if guns didn’t exist at all. Maybe that’s naïve or narrow-minded, but it’s what I believe.

But I also recognize that I’m fighting an uphill battle when I argue that all guns should disappear. Despite my pie-in-the-sky ramblings, I certainly appreciate and understand the rights granted to all U.S. citizens by the Bill of Rights.

The Bill of Rights is something that I hold very dearly. I probably wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing if the First Amendment didn’t exist. But I also recognize that the founding fathers couldn’t possibly have predicted that we’d live in a world when a 20-year-old man can walk into an elementary school and brutally murder 20 young children and six adults in a few minutes.

In 50 years, will we think of this time like we think of the Wild West? It seems like some folks won’t be happy until we can all carry a handgun in a holster on our hip wherever we go.

If I see a stranger carrying a gun, I turn and run. I don’t feel safer.

But as I said before, I recognize that we live in a scary world and we all have to protect ourselves. Some people work in professions where they’re more prone to encounter bad people with bad intentions.

Hear that, ladies?  Some professions are just more dangerous than others, and since you chose real estate, you are at greater risk of being raped.  That’s just the way it is.  Got it?

Actually, I thought of just such an instance near my home town, where a female real estate agent was recently raped while at “showing” home.

The real estate agent says he choked her, pulled out a knife, and raped her inside a home she was scheduled to show him in Salisbury Tuesday.  The two then drive to a second house in Granite Quarry where the agent convinced Cooper to allow her to call her office.  She gave a secret code that told coworkers she was in danger.

“As a woman, you’re supposed to be safe.  Period,” said Salisbury resident Hattie Johnson.  “Especially if a person was assaulted and they were on their jobs, they’re doing their job… it’s scary.”

No, you aren’t supposed to be safe, period!  Despite the idiotic ramblings of Mr. Social Darwin above who thinks we are constantly evolving to a higher state (perhaps he has watched too many episodes of Star Trek), nothing you do can change the heart of man.  You must carry means of personal defense.

Or, if you wish instead to listen to Mr. Social Darwin above, he would rather you be raped.  Perhaps he even takes pleasure in the fact that you lack the means to protect yourself in some sort of sick way.  Make up your own mind.

Concealed Carrier Stops Mob Of Violent Teens

BY Herschel Smith
1 week, 3 days ago

A mob of Wisconsin teens attempted to rob a group of adults in Milwaukee only to be shot at by a West Allis man carrying a concealed carry weapon.

Police say that a group of teens attempted to rob a group of adults when one of the men pulled out his gun and began shooting at the teens.

He fatally shot one of the robbers, a 15-year-old known gang member who was already the victim of another non-fatal shooting on August 1.

The teen had previously been charged with armed robbery, auto theft, theft, and fleeing.

 Police have arrested another two 14-year-old males, a 16-year-old male, a 17-year-old female, and an 18-year-old male.

Police say this particular group is responsible for multiple armed robberies that have recently hit Milwaukee. Police say the group may be responsible for “dozens” of robberies over just the past three days.

“This is criminals that are running around the city creating opportunities for them to rob people all over and this was just the timing,” Alderman Jose Perez said. “This has nothing to do with the district or the neighborhood.”

The Daily Caller reports that a “similar incident involving a Milwaukee robbery gang occurred in July. A nurse carrying a concealed carry permit shot a 15-year-old assailant as he and a 17-year-old accomplice attempted to steal her car. During the investigation it was discovered that the two teens had been involved in previous armed robberies that involved numerous others.”

Whether it’s due to a “group of adults” or a nurse who trying to get to work or back, if enough thugs get shot, there will be no more thugs.  The solution to the problem of crime is to kill the criminals.
