    The Black Live Matter movement will develop an armed branch of “peace officers” to combat police brutality in black communities during the so-called “war on police,” according to one of its leaders. Protests broke out across the country following the death of unarmed Minneapolis black man George Floyd while in police custody, bringing the BLM movement back into national focus. In an interview with the Daily Mail, BLM New York chapter Chairman Hawk Newsome described how the group plans to follow in the footsteps of the Black Panthers Party by matching fire with fire – when necessary. “We're talking about...

    Imagine that you were, god forbid, a journalist. You’ve been assigned to relay the facts of a fatal shooting. The scene is a bar in the middle of a rioting city with its windows smashed in and a group of people gathered outside. The bar owner’s father comes out to confront them, and one of them knocks the old man to the ground. At this point the bar owner himself comes out and, indicating that he has a gun on his person, and demands that the group leave — only to be tackled to the ground as well. The owner...

    Riot-torn Philadelphia contributed two nominees to 2020’s Darwin Award list on Tuesday. Early Tuesday morning, looters decided to raid a South Philly gun store. Amazingly, it turns out if you and your buddies plan to ‘jack a gun store, a person with a gun might be there to stop you. Such was the case in South Philadelphia at Firing Line, Inc., early Tuesday morning after a night of riots by “grief-stricken” looters, arsonists and vandals. NBC Philadelphia reports that the gun shop owner, a 67-year-old man, watched on his surveillance cameras as three or four burglars used bolt-cutters to break...

    Thousands of people across the US have flooded the streets to protest police violence in the wake of George Floyd’s death. But as protesters confront police brutality, some are concerned that some protesters are being needlessly aggressive. In several videos circulating on social media, protesters deface, destroy property, or steal things from shop owners. President Donald Trump has blamed some of the protests on Antifa, an umbrella term for anti-fascists, and has sought to designate it as a domestic terrorist group. Attorney General William Barr has also blamed Antifa and “groups of outside radicals and agitators” for “riots” at the...

    An Atlanta gun store owner says he’s hoping that “no one will get hurt” after 42 handguns were stolen from his business over the weekend during looting sparked by the death of George Floyd. Jim Hinsdale, the owner of Chuck’s Firearms in the Buckhead neighborhood, told Fox5 Atlanta on Tuesday that his store was burglarized for the first time in 50 years. "They were here to take advantage of the opportunity of police not being able to be dispatched and address the normal crime," he said, adding that 42 semi-automatic handguns and revolvers were stolen from display cases, ranging in...
  • Americans Just Bought Five Million More Guns

    06/03/2020 5:04:14 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 29 replies ^ | June 2, 2020
    More than 1.7 million firearms were sold in the U.S. last month, up 80 percent compared to last May. That follows a 71 percent surge in April to just under 1.8 million sold, and just under two million guns were sold in March. Some perspective: The all-time record, following the Sandy Hook massacre and President Obama’s address vowing to make a major push for more gun control, was two million guns sold in January 2013. This chart shows a general trend upward for years. In September 2001, gun sales were only about 750,000, and that was a month when sales...

Kleine said the death of Scurlock was "senseless," because the situation stemmed from what was meant to be peaceful protests. Kleine...

    A shocking story has emerged out of Clearwater, Florida, where two saggy-pants-wearing thugs carjacked a woman and her son in the parking lot of a Bank of America.

The paper reported the shooting was apparently recorded on Facebook Live. The Ethical Society of Police, a St. Louis black officers fraternal organization, mourned Dorn in a tweet as "the type of brother that would've given his life to save them if he had to."

    A live TV broadcast showed a group of suspected looters in Los Angeles confront business owners bearing long guns for not allowing them to break in to stores. “There’s a standoff here arguing about why they can’t break into the place,” a Fox 11 TV reporter said during a live broadcast Sunday evening. Soon after, both the alleged looters and the people in front of the store attempted to flag down police. When police arrived, confusion broke out and officers began to arrest everyone.

    In the last several days we’ve seen many people on social media say that they’ve called the police and have been told the response either wouldn’t happen or would take a long time. It seems now more than ever that Americans increasingly aren’t relying on the police to protect them and are taking things into their own hands. Here’s just one example: Line up for a gun shop in Long Island right now. +50 people and over a 2 hour wait. — Clarion Project (@clarionproject)

    Reports and rumors that groups bent on rioting and violence in Coeur d’Alene brought out men and women with guns on Monday determined to stop them if they arrive. Dan Carson was patrolling Sherman Avenue with an AR-12 automatic 12-gauge across his chest, an AR-15 strapped to his back, two 9mm handguns holstered and a .38 special, too. “I heard there are some people on the way who shouldn’t be here,” he said early Monday evening. Those people, he said, were Antifa and Proud Boys, militant far-left and far-right groups. Carson said he was in Spokane Sunday night helping protect...

    The latest to try it is the ever-annoying Fred Guttenberg. The father of a mass shooting victim and two gun safety groups petitioned the federal government on Sunday to stop the firearms manufacturer Smith & Wesson from using what they described as “deceptive and unfair” marketing to promote assault-style rifles. The father, Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, died in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre in Parkland, Fla., joined with the advocacy groups Brady and Everytown for Gun Safety to send a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission. As part of the complaint, Mr. Guttenberg and the gun...

    The number of National Instant Criminal Background System Checks (NICS) conducted in May 2020 shattered the record for the most checks conducted in any May since the inception of background checks. FBI numbers show 3,091,455 NICS checks were conducted in May 2020, easily surpassing the previous record of 2,349,309 checks set in May 2019. Moreover, May comes on the heels of April 2020’s record setting checks, as there were more NICS conducted in April 2020 than in any April since background checks on gun sales were conducted in April 1999. And March 2020 not only set a record for the...
