Republicans on Breitbarf site think Trump's plan to wall off the internet is a fantastic idea

So much for "Don't tread on me", "1776 will commence", "we need a less intrusive government" and "we need a smaller government"


This may be why the GOP may be trying to throw the election, if a republican gets elected they can't continue to sell guns, tee shirts, bumper stickers to these mindless idiots who are only capable of spewing talking points they heard on a right wing radio station.

Just another day in 2nd amendment America

Welcome to America where guns are easier to get a hold of than the latest Star Wars toys.

LOS FELIZ (CBSLA.com) — Diners were enjoying an evening meal at MessHall Kitchen in Los Feliz on Sunday when a gunshot suddenly rang through the air, critically injuring a parking attendant and sending patrons into a panic.

Around 7 p.m., a man drove up to a valet attendant and demanded to get his money back. When the valet told the armed man that he did not have his money, the man took out a gun, shot the valet in the stomach and drove away, police said.

The victim, who has asked co-workers not to be identified, is said to be in critical condition.

The shooting stunned diners who clamored for shelter under tables. One person ran through the restaurant and told people to get on the floor.

“It was very loud. My ears started ringing immediately and I knew it was a large gun, not a pistol,” said witness Erin Quill, who was eating dinner on the patio nearby. “The gentleman next to me had small a child and threw a table over him like a fort.”

Couple Accused Of Firing On Park Rangers In Dana Point

DANA POINT (AP) — Orange County sheriff’s officials say a man and a woman were arrested after one of them allegedly opened fire on park rangers as the couple fled a camp site and crashed their car into a fire pit.

The couple was in a car late Tuesday near Dana Point Harbor when two rangers approached to see if they had a camping permit.

Authorities say the car took off, crashing into a fire pit and overturning. The woman was arrested at the crash scene. The man was eventually found in the water by a sheriff’s helicopter crew.

Lt. Jeff Hallock says the rangers reported one of the suspects shot at them during the chase. The rangers were not injured.

The suspects were hospitalized for injuries sustained in the crash.

Just another day in 2nd amendment America

Welcome to America where guns are easier to get a hold of than the latest Star Wars toys.

Seattle Police Department investigators are piecing together the trail of a 35-year-old violent felon after he brandished two handguns at several downtown businesses Sunday, carjacked three vehicles and fired on officers before a fatal confrontation with police in Northeast Seattle.

Detectives from the department’s Force Investigation Team and Investigations Bureau are reviewing the incident and have compiled a preliminary timeline of the man’s crime spree.

Police received their first call about the suspect from staff at Storyville Coffee in the 90 block of Pike Street around 12:35 PM. The suspect reportedly entered the store, visibly sweating and acting nervously. He began manipulating a handgun in his pocket, leading employees to call 911.

The suspect exited the shop before police arrived and was next seen at the Turkish Delight restaurant in the 1900 block of Pike Place a few minutes later. There, he spoke briefly with employees before he brandished a handgun at the restaurant’s owner and fled.

Black officer who "found" racist letter charged with planting it

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A former police officer in Connecticut who reported finding a letter disparaging black officers has been arrested on charges he planted the note himself.

Clive Higgins was arrested Wednesday on a charge of second-degree falsely reporting an incident.

Higgins reported finding the threatening letter Feb. 9 inside his mailbox at the Bridgeport Police Department. Higgins, who is black, said the note written on police letterhead made him fear for his life and showed there was discrimination inside the department.

A state police investigator wrote in an affidavit that the 50-year-old Higgins admitted during an interview he had typed the letter himself.


Here is video of Officer Higgins joining fellow officers in beating and kicking the shit out of a Orlando Lopez-Soto while he was on the ground

Black Friday breaks record with 185K gun background checks

More Americans had their backgrounds checked purchasing guns on Black Friday than any day in the on record, according to data released by the FBI this week.

The National Instant Criminal Background Check System processed 185,345 requests on November 27, one of the largest retail sales days in the country.

"This was an approximate 5% increase over the 175,754 received on Black Friday 2014," wrote Stephen Fischer, the FBI's chief of multimedia productions. "The previous high for receipts were the 177,170 received on 12/21/2012."

Previous spikes for background checks, conducted before a gun buyer can obtain a firearm, occurred after prominent mass shootings, like in December 2012 in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Other Black Friday shopping days in 2014, 2013 and 2012 occupied the FBI's "top 10" list of the most background checks processed in a 24-hour period.

Since 1998, FBI data shows that the bureau has processed requests for more than 220 million firearm purchases.

Licensed sellers deny sales to failed background checks based on a variety of factors including criminal backgrounds, domestic violence convictions or restraining orders.


I'm afraid we've lost on the stricter background check front.

You can't push for stricter background checks on psychos who already have guns. I think we have to start pushing for confiscations and outright bans.

What else can we realistically do?

Twitter threats to Black Kean students made by Black alum/activist, police say

Another Ashley Todd/Kerri Dunn/Charlie Rogers

A recent Kean graduate has been charged with being responsible for a series of tweets threatening black students at the school two weeks ago, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced Tuesday.

Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, of Union was charged by summons with third-degree creating a false public alarm.

Park said an investigation by the Union County Prosecutor's Office's Special Prosecutions Unit and Kean University police found that McKelvey, a self-proclaimed activist, participated in a student rally regarding racial issues on Nov. 17, but left midway through the rally and walked to a computer station in a university library.

Once there, McKelvey allegedly created an anonymous Twitter account – @keanuagainstblk – and began posting threats of violence against black Kean students.

The first message around 10 p.m. said "kean university twitter against blacks is for everyone who hates blacks people" and a tweet about there being a bomb on the campus, and then continued with several other tweets about shooting black students at the university.

i will kill every black male and female at kean university

— kean university (@keanuagainstblk) November 18, 2015

After making the posts, McKelvey immediately returned to the rally and attempted to spread awareness of the threats she allegedly had just fabricated, authorities said.

The university said approximately 100 students participated in a peaceful rally on campus that night with 10 students spending the night at the clock tower, "joining students across the nation to raise awareness of recent racial unrest at the University of Missouri and other college campuses."

That night on McKelvey's personal Twitter account she posted photos of the rally and screenshots of the tweets.
