    DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Police and the University of Dayton Police responded to Lowes Street in the South Student neighborhood on reports of a massive crowd. University officials said the crowd gathered around 11 p.m. and began throwing objects and jumping on cars. Students said they were celebrating the cancellation of classes due to the coronavirus outbreak. Police in riot gear fired several rounds of paintball guns and pepper balls into the crowd. Units from across the city were also called in to help after verbal orders to disperse were ignored. University Officials said at least one person was...
  • Obama’s Oscar-Winning ‘American Factory’ Omits His Own Role in Ohio Factory’s Closing

    Former President Barack Obama played a direct role in the hardships of the workers featured in American Factory, the Oscar-winning documentary his new production company produced. But as Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the former mayor of nearby Dayton, Ohio, wrote last year, the movie leaves out President Obama’s own role in making life worse for the GM workers who lost their jobs. Obama’s auto bailout, he recalled, helped force the plant’s closure and made it harder for the workers to find new jobs because his administration was dealing political favors to its favored union allies — and they were in...

    Houston is a faraway place on FM 1413 in southern Liberty County, where a driver is more likely to see a pony munching on grass than a shop on the corner. If not for the trees and an electrical transmission line, the sky would be unbroken, horizon to horizon. It soon could look a lot more like other parts of suburban Houston where the Grand Parkway has gone, with cul-de-sacs replacing horse pastures and retail centers sprouting at major intersections.
  • Collins: 'Let's hope rational heads prevail' on gun control

    Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday said he wants the facts – and rational thought – to be used in work on gun control plans being considered by Congress. But he doesn't have high hopes. His comments came as the committee, run by Democrats, worked on a hearing titled "Protecting America from Assault Weapons." The hearing was to hear from several witnesses, including Nan Whaley, the mayor of Dayton, Ohio, the scene of one of several shootings in recent weeks where either a deranged or homicide-minded individual attacked innocent people, with guns....

    Connor Betts’ life appeared to be improving in recent months. His drunken driving troubles were behind him. He’d passed the basic math classes that stymied his earlier college attempts. He went to counseling and registered for classes for the upcoming fall semester at Sinclair. But in April, the Oregon District gunman started taking steps toward what would end on Aug. 4 with the death of nine other people, including his sister, as well as himself. He bought a pistol. To keep his parents in the dark, federal authorities allege he enlisted an unwitting friend to acquire body armor, the upper...

    An Ohio homeowner shot dead two teenage boys who he say were 'trespassing' on his property on Wednesday night. The homeowner has not been named but is being questioned. He told police that on Wednesday at 9.30pm, he shot the two boys in his 'garage'. He called 911 afterwards. The boys have been identified as 17-year-olds Devon Henderson and Javier Harrison. It remains unclear if they were trying to break into the property, or what their motive for being there was. When the homeowner called 911, he told the operator: 'I shot two guys. I shot two persons tried to...

    Two children were killed and at least 11 people were injured when a stabbing suspect driving a stolen police cruiser crashed into two vehicles near a library in Dayton, Ohio, officials said. The incident Monday evening began when police received a report of a stabbing in the city at about 7:10 p.m., police said, according to NBC affiliate WDTN in Dayton. The stabbing suspect had fled the scene, and a short time later, police responded to a single-vehicle crash in which the fleeing suspect's vehicle apparently hit a tree. Once again, the suspect fled the scene, but this time in...

    When the mass murder in Dayton Ohio was conducted by a leftist drug addict, most in the media jumped to the conclusion that he used a rifle. It was not hard to do for those ignorant of firearms and the arcane classifications created by the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934 and its follow on legislation. The logical contradictions of the NFA have become more and more obvious, partly through legal holdings of the BATFE, and partly from Court decision. It takes a serious understanding of the law to know what is a pistol and what is a rifle....

    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson (Wis.) on Tuesday questioned a renewed push for gun control after two mass shootings earlier this month put a focus back on the nation's gun laws. "All I can tell you is what I hear in Wisconsin. The debate really hasn't changed much at all," Johnson told CNN. "People still ask the same questions. OK, if you propose some kind of gun legislation, first of all, how would that have prevented these tragedies in the past? How would they prevent them in the future?" he added. Pressure on lawmakers to pass gun legislation has increased following...

    Democrat Rep. Debra Haaland (NM) proclaimed on Sunday that far-left extremist group Antifa consists of "peaceful protesters" who are just trying to protect Portland from "domestic terrorism." ... "It's not surprising that Trump would side away from the folks who are the peaceful protesters working to safeguard their city from domestic terrorism," Haaland continued. "Just not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists. That's been his mode of operation since before he was elected president." Haaland seemed unaware of the fact that a self-described member of Antifa carried out a domestic terror attack against an ICE...

    New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet on Monday admitted during a newsroom meeting that an original headline focused on President Trump's response to mass shootings last week was a "f---ing mess," according to The Daily Beast. Baquet made the comment during a meeting with newsroom staff that addressed an array of issues, including how the newspaper has covered Trump and race. But the meeting mainly focused on a print headline — "Trump Urges Unity Against Racism" — describing Trump's response to a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left 22 people dead earlier this month, The Daily Beast...

    Ethan Kollie, 24, of Kettering, has been charged with federally lying on federal firearms forms in order to purchase weapons and with illegally possessing those weapons. Kollie allegedly told agents that he likes guns and currently owns a handgun and a micro Draco pistol. He also indicated that he purchased body armor and a firearm component for Betts earlier this year. Kollie agreed to allow agents to search his home, and while inside, they say they smelled marijuana and observed in plain sight a bong and the Drago pistol. During a second interview on Aug. 8, Kollie told to agents...

    According to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice, released on August 12, 2019, “Today the government is unsealing charges against a friend of Connor Betts for allegedly lying on federal firearms forms.” The press release did not name Ethan Kollie, but he’s named in Montgomery County jail records. Kollie is 24-years-old and is in custody, according to jail records reviewed by Heavy. The arrest warrant and complaint accuse Kollie of possession of a firearm by an unlawful user/addict of a controlled substance and making a false statement regarding firearms.

    You were elected to uphold the United States Constitution and represent the American people in the Senate. If you vote for this Red Flag Confiscation bill, you will be attacking our constitutional rights to bear arms, attacking our constitutional right to due process, and turning your back on the American voters who trusted you to represent us in the Senate. This bill would create a federal “bribe pot” to encourage states to pass Red Flag Gun Confiscation bills. This means SWAT teams would be empowered to show up at innocent Americans’ doorsteps, demanding they fork over their guns, all because...

    Get ready for my confession. I'm white, male and Republican. I dislike the government. I believe in the Constitution. I demand a wall to secure our border. But I'm just getting started. I've watched violent TV shows and movies for my whole life. I don't watch unless it features cops versus bad guys, the military or the mafia. And I've owned guns for self-defense my entire adult life. I have a concealed weapon permit. I'm packing right now. I love to go shooting ... with my kids. I took my daughter shooting to celebrate her graduation from Harvard. We shot...

    Kill every fascist,” mass shooter Connor Betts declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of ANTIFA ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. We have been warning about the US domestic terror group known as ANTIFA for quite a few years now. Like the Ku Klux Klan, and because of their cowardly nature, they wear masks and hoods to hide their identities. The KKK wear white masks, and ANTIFA wears black masks, while both groups commit acts of mayhem while claiming to be something they’re...

    We want to express our deepest sympathies to the families and victims in El Paso and Dayton. As always, the NRA will work in good faith to pursue real solutions to the violence we witnessed this past weekend. Real solutions save lives – televised, choreographed spectacles don’t. In support of this goal, we appreciate the need for honest and open dialogue on how to stop these horrific murders. As a group that has advocated for Second Amendment freedoms for almost 150 years, we stand for only the safe and lawful use of firearms. Sadly, El Paso and Dayton were not...

The ‘Me-First’ attitudes of vainglorious Democrat presidential hopefuls former Congressman ‘Beto’ O’Rourke, Senators Liz Warren, Bernie Sanders et al block comfort and condolences for the survivors of the shooting massacres in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, which combined took some 31 lives,...
