    The woman who fatally shot a home intruder in suburban Tampa last week was pregnant and used an AR-15 to kill the man, according to a news report. Jeremy King of Lithia told Bay News 9 that his wife, who is eight months pregnant, was in a back bedroom Wednesday when two men burst in at about 9 p.m. and began brutally beating King, demanding money and grabbing his 11-year-old daughter. The woman told the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office that she grabbed the weapon and shot one of the suspects once. That man was dead in a nearby ditch by...
  • Report on guns shows the left’s double-standard

    News & Observer ^ | October 9, 2019 | J. Peder Zane
    The left’s latest charge against North Carolina Republicans is a doozy: They’re too cheap to prosecute criminals. That’s how they’re spinning a recent Charlotte Observer report that about half of all weapons charges in the state are dismissed —including 68% of cases in Mecklenburg County, 58% in Durham County and 45% in Wake County. The left’s attempt to blame the GOP rests, of course, on the idea that we can solve this — like every other problem — by spending more money. There’s some truth to this, as the Observer reports that North Carolina spends less per capita on its...
  • God, Guns, and Grit: Why America Needs The Reliant (movie)

    American Thinker ^ | October 2, 2019 | James A. Hope
    The Reliant, an action film coming to select theaters on October 24, is not a typical faith-based film and the secular community is taking notice. It was made apparent when the Motion Picture Association of America gave it an R rating. Although it had no foul language or sex scenes, and less violence than Disney movies given a PG-13 rating, the screenwriter and producer of the film, Dr. J. P. Johnston, had to appeal to the MPAA to get it changed. The hate mail the producers have received and the trash articles written by those opposed to the film’s nod...

    It had already been a long and emotional day for the Virginia Beach man when he walked into a 7-Eleven store to buy a Big Gulp. He’d just been involved in a heated argument with his stepfather, and police had been called to the house. After talking to officers, it took him more than an hour to walk back to his conversion van, which was parked near his work. The vehicle wasn’t working at the time, but he’d been living in it for a few weeks. Once he got there, he realized his canteen was empty. “I said, ‘Well, it...

    What’s the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun? A good guy with a gun. If you’re in trouble and your life is in danger who do you want nearby? Do you want someone who legally carries a firearm or would you prefer to not defend yourself? Odds are that your first instinct will be to call the police (good guys with guns) but that’s not always enough. Sometimes, the police can’t get there in time. What do you do then?

    Situational awareness is the perception of environmental elements which translate to being aware of your surrounding. This is important for being prepared to defend yourself and your family. Which is becoming more important these days. Having this edge can make a differences in your decision making while in a fight or avoiding one.

    This is every ATM customer’s worst nightmare Harrowing bank surveillance footage shows the moment a teen murder suspect approached an unwitting ATM customer from behind — seconds before the bloodied victim collapsed in a parking lot. The footage shows Marcine Bernard Hill, 17, calmly approaching an ATM in North Miami Beach in November. Clad in a black Ecko jacket emblazoned with the words “Kill Batman,” Hill saunters up behind victim Dillon Bud Calvin Steve, who turns around to notice Hill at the last moment. Steve, 26, quickly glances at his mother’s van in the parking lot before dropping the cash...

    COMMANDMENT I: If You Choose To Carry, Always Carry As Much As Possible Hollywood actors get to see the script beforehand, and nothing is fired at them but blanks. You don’t have either luxury. Criminals attack people in times and places where they don’t think the victims will be prepared for them. It’s what they do. The only way to be prepared to ward off such predators is to always be prepared: i.e., to be routinely armed and constantly ready to respond to deadly threats against you and those who count on you for protection. It’s not about convenience; it’s...

    A Cottonwood Shores man whose family was targeted by a gunman driving along RM 1431 in Burnet County on Thursday night said he disarmed and beat unconscious the man aiming at his wife and son. In an interview with the American-Statesman on Saturday, Johnny Henderson said he and his family are shaken but unhurt after the attack, which ended after an off-duty police officer shot and wounded the gunman and Henderson jumped him. Henderson broke his hand in the ordeal. Henderson said the family has no idea what provoked the attack, which seemed to be tied to road rage. Authorities...

    Tomorrow is November 4th, the date that has been bandied about by wannabe Communists and people who hate the President since last summer as the starting date of their uprising. Cities across the country have planned events (find the list of locations here) and I’ve gotten photos from people in small towns all over the place of signs with the ominous warning, “November 4th It Begins.” Now, before we delve into prepping for this, please know that there is every chance this is a tempest in a teapot. It’s most likely that anywhere from 20 to 200 people will...

Ulch said increased threats against houses of worship inspired him to make a choice. "We sought out to what we could...

    Hopefully, you will never have to experience or get into harms way as these men of the 101st Airborne did. But in every home/vehicle or active shooter defense scenario. If given a chance to foil an attack, you might want to do so in a similar fashion as these Airborne troopers. But seriously for us private citizens just remember wherever you're at either at the mall or in your car. Get out of the area and run (or drive)as fast as you can to safety then call for help. See the footage here.
