  • Domestic Violence: More Guns, Less Injury

    Gun Watch ^ | 21 February, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    A new study shows that only 17 of 35,413 domestic violence incidents resulted in a gunshot wound. The study was based on police reports collected in Philadelphia in 2013. From psychcentral.com: A new study shows that when guns are part of domestic violence, women actually suffer fewer injuries, but experience greater fear. According to a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, thatÂ’s because when a gun enters the situation, women are more likely to back down than fight back. This is consistent with the use of guns in other crimes, and in self-defense. It is not limited to women....

    Here’s the left’s next great idea for bringing down President Trump: another women’s march. Which means another public instance of Trump haters shouting slogans to one another and mistaking it for constructive politics. What progressives need to defeat Trump is outreach, but all they have is outrage. On March 8, organizers seem to be aiming for a different vibe than the librarians-in-pussy-hats element that made the first women’s march after Trump’s inauguration so adorable. Instead of milling around Washington, organizers have in mind a “general strike” called the Day without a Woman. In a manifesto published in The Guardian on...

    A 69-year-old Queens woman suckerpunched in a random attack outside a deli last year has died. Eve Gentillon never recovered from the brain injury she suffered when she was attacked back on October 15. Upgraded charges are now expected against her accused attacker. It happened on Sutphin Boulevard near 108th Avenue in Jamaica. A man who police identify as Richard Springer came out of the deli and punched her in the head. Gentillon hit her head on the ground and had to have a piece of her skull removed due to a brain injury. Springer is also accused of assaulting...

    SWEDEN’S capital was plunged into chaos on Monday as police were forced to fire at rioters after violence erupted. The scenes took place just hours after the country’s Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, slammed Donald Trump for claiming Sweden was in crisis as a result of its liberal refugee policy. Stockholm police were forced to fire a shot into the crowd in the hard-hit suburb of Rinkeby, after a mob of around 30 began attacking officers with rocks. Violence erupted after the police had tried to arrest a wanted person on the subway

    Police investigator Peter Springare isn’t likely to be among those mocking President Trump for his remarks about refugees in Sweden. Trump’s comments during a Florida campaign rally on Saturday – which some took as a misstatement about a supposed terror attack – dovetail with what Springare has been seeing during a typical week in Orebro, Sweden. Five rapes, three assaults, a pair of extortions, blackmail, an attempted murder, violence against police and a robbery made up Springare’s caseload for a five-day period earlier this month, according to a Feb. 3 Facebook post he wrote. The suspects were all from Muslim-majority...

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said in a statement Saturday that the incident happened Friday around 1:45 p.m. Officers assisting the U.S. Secret Service reported that a vehicle in the motorcade had been struck by what was believed to be a small, hard object. Several members of the motorcade returned to the scene after completing the motorcade to look for witnesses and objects along the roadway.

This isn’t fire we’re playing with, it’s a nuclear war. That Trump might somehow be deus-ex-machina-ed out of public life has been a consistent feature of the past 20 months. He won’t run gave...

And carbon isotopes found in skeletons at Mississippian cities indicate that people ate a lot of corn. “That comes at right around 950, and that’s around the time the population at Cahokia...

The University which had gained a reputation as a bastion of free speech for its position in favor of speaking in opposition to the Vietnam War 40 years ago has morphed into an enemy of the concept of the discovery of truth through open debate by those with different opinions. In one of the op eds, Nisa Dang contended that “free...

    The Daily Californian, the student newspaper at the University of California, Berkeley, has published a series of op-eds defending the use of violence to shut down a lecture on campus by Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos last week. The series is called “Violence as self-defense,” ostensibly on the premise that conservative speech is a physical threat. UC Berkeley, a public campus once celebrated as the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s, now apparently celebrates the use of violence to suppress free speech and violate the civil right rights of guest speakers and fellow students.

In this process, he enabled a sense of entitlement among the various fringe groups that comprise what is really a minority (in numbers), Democrat party. Chief among their sense of “entitlement” is the use of the force of government to foist and decree various mandates upon the rest of us – without debate or even the legislative process. In fact, all debate is mostly suffocated by claims of “racism” with the help of the complicit media. I am reminded of an analogous...

    For decades, the tough-on-crime movement has well served vote-pandering politicians (remember Jane Orie?), but hasn't reduced crime and imposes an ever-increasing burden on taxpayers. More specifically, the war on drugs is a dismal failure. Saying “drugs are a serious problem” is an understatement, because drug-related offenses aren't limited to possession and distribution. Many violent and property offenses are also drug-related — another understatement.

We've seen accusations that Trump will overthrow the judiciary, run roughshod over Congress and generally make a fascist nuisance of himself. This isn't good for the country.

    At the time of the Roe v. Wade decision, I was a college student — an anti-war, mother-earth, feminist, hippie college student. That particular January I was taking a semester off, living in the D.C. area and volunteering at the feminist “underground newspaper” Off Our Backs. As you’d guess, I was strongly in favor of legalizing abortion. The bumper sticker on my car read, “Don’t labor under a misconception; legalize abortion.” The first issue of Off Our Backs after the Roe decision included one of my movie reviews, and also an essay by another member of the collective criticizing the...

    Multiple videos that captured a large group of women brawling in a Florida neighborhood have led to criminal charges after they quickly went viral. The cellphone videos showed the group of women fighting near several homes in Leesburg around 4.30pm on Monday. Neighbors said the fight attracted a huge crowd just minutes after people began posting about it on social media. At least 50 people surrounded the group of girls as they threw punches, pulled each other's hair and tore at one another's clothes.

    President Trump on Tuesday evening threatened to send government officials to the Windy City if the Democratic mayor and city police cannot turn around the city's rocketing homicide rate. "If Chicago doesn't fix the horrible "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!" Trump tweeted around 9:30 p.m. EST Tuesday. Gun-related violence in Chicago is outpacing the same period in 2016, which was one of the most deadly years for the city in recent history. From Jan. 1 through Monday, 37 people were killed and 250 people were...

    LOOK AT THESE CRAZY DC RIOTERS AND BRAINWASHED PROTESTORS How are these crazy protestors still labeled as 'Peaceful' or even 'Protestors' Surely, some of them are still protestors but those crazy antifa people can in no way be called protestors or anything similar. The only labels they deserve are: "rioters" , "thugs", and "criminals." See more related videos on http://newsheist.com

    Within a few hours of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona, there were attempts by the Left to pin the blame on the Tea Party. The suspect turned out to be a lunatic who was a big fan of the "Communist Manifesto" and "Mein Kampf." Not exactly a right-winger. Years ago, I began to sound the alarm about the upcoming Obama thugocracy, and we got a taste of it at the tea party events and town hall meetings in 2009. A few representatives from the Black Panthers were involved in a voter intimidation incident at a Philadelphia polling...
