    Writing in the New York Times, a columnist for the lefty Guardian ponders the latest "lone wolf" Muslim attack on London with a celebration of restraint: “The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts,” George Eliot wrote in “Middlemarch.” On Thursday, in a statement to the House of Commons about the attack that had occurred right outside Parliament the day before, Prime Minister Theresa May echoed that sentiment, paying tribute to the “ millions of acts of normality” that are the most powerful weapons against extremist violence. This was London’s counterattack: to show that it takes...

    Nov. 16, 2015 | 06:12 PM Norway postpones disarming of police after Paris attacks Agence France Presse OSLO: Norway's police, who were to stop wearing their service weapons this week, will remain armed until December 1 because of the Paris attacks, Norwegian authorities said Monday. The country's 6,000 uniformed officers have been exceptionally authorized to wear their firearms on their belts since November 2014 due to a heightened threat of Islamist attacks. In ordinary circumstances, police keep their firearms locked in their patrol cars. Last week, just hours before the Paris attacks, Norway's police chief had announced they would be...

    The growing body count as of this writing is 120 slaughtered in the Bataclan. We'll never know how much that body count could have been reduced if the foolish French allowed their citizens to go armed. Their imprudent gun control laws contributed to unnecessary carnage. Once again, when seconds counted, the police were just too many minutes away.

    Another prime example of gun control at its finest is the story of these two unarmed officers being gunned down by… a thug with a gun. Wait, didn’t gun control stop it? Of course not, and here is the story submitted by a reader. These two officers responded to a robbery in progress when they were ambushed by an armed man that had a warrant out for his role in a shooting and grenade attack. The two unarmed officers responded to the call to the Hattersley Estate in Mottram.

    Zachary Hammond was on a first date when he was fatally shot by a police officer in his car during a drug bust in South Carolina, his family says. At the time the 19-year-old was shot and killed, his date, Tori Morton, was eating an ice cream cone, according to the family’s attorney, Eric Bland. Morton, 23, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana — all 10 grams of it — which, according to police, was the reason undercover agents set up the drug buy. ... Amid heightened scrutiny of fatal police shootings across the country, Hammond’s death has...

    The headline is incendiary.  It is meant to be to show the double standard that has been inculcated in this country, and to show that black people are routinely treated fairly under the law.    There is a myth that has been built and supported by the old media that only white people can use guns in self defense.  The mythology erroneously states that if black people use guns in self defense, they will be jailed.  In fact, black people are using guns in self defense more and more, and they are finding that the law applies to them the...

    During the January 7 terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, several Paris police officers fled, unable to disarm the threat, because they themselves were unarmed and outgunned. Breitbart News previously reported that “black-hooded-men” with Kalashnikovs entered the Charlie Hedbo headquarters and opened fire, killing 12 people–including those who were killed outside the building as the gunmen headed back to their car. CBS News relayed reports from Britain’s Telegraph newspaper that the first two officers to arrive “were apparently unarmed” and “fled after seeing gunmen armed with automatic weapons and possibly a grenade launcher.” The UK’s Independent reported that “three...

    A Whitmore Lake family had to grab life by the horns on Thanksgiving when a ram nearly forced its way into their home. Shortly after finishing Thanksgiving dinner with his family, Mike Richards went to take his dog for a walk when a movement caught his eye. As he exited his garage, he saw a large ram grazing on the grass in front of his house. "I ran back inside and I said to my wife, 'Paula, you'll never guess what's in the front yard,' " he said. "We both went outside, the dog was still outside, and as soon...

    When I first heard of Nathan Cirillo being shot at Ottowa's unknown-soldier monument, I just assumed he never saw it coming and couldn't resist simply due to the element of surprise... Then I heard on Fox yesterday that he was 'unarmed because the posting was ceremonial'... really? Turns out the gun slung-over his shoulder wasn't even loaded. Anybody out there know if our monument guards are armed with live ammo here in the US? After a bit of research, I've yet to find the answer. If not, seems insane- such a public target, just a sitting duck standing there on...

    Editor's note: This column originally appeared in the October issue of Townhall Magazine.Over the past few months we’ve heard an awful lot about the police shooting of “unarmed” teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Before his death, Brown was caught on video in a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store. The video shows Brown was “unarmed” and used his personal strength to push away and assault a store clerk who tried to stop him from stealing a $50 pack of cigars. When Officer Darren Wilson stopped Brown and a friend in the middle of the road, an altercation allegedly occurred....

    Three punks jumped an off-duty cop in Midtown, leaving him hospitalized with a head injury, authorities said Saturday. In what is believed to be an unprovoked assault, the three suspects ganged up on the 42-year-old cop on W. 49th St. near Ninth Ave. in Hell’s Kitchen early Friday morning, cops said. The incident began just after midnight when one of the three suspects jumped in front of the off-duty officer “in a fighting stance,” police said. The cop tried to walk past him, but the wacko’s two friends joined in and began to pummel the cop, leaving him with a...
