Moms Demand Action, another Left-Wing group posing as pro-woman

Bearing Arms asks a great question about Moms Demand Action, a gun control group

Moms Demand Action—the anti-gun astroturf group of older women run by veteran PR maven Shannon Watts—knows that they are losing the public relations war against firearms. Young urban, and female gun owners are the fastest growing demographics in the shooting sports, turning shooting into truly social events.

Aware of the fact that gun controllers are losing this younger generation before they can be conned by anti-gun hysteria, Moms Demand has attempted to slow their hemorrhaging support by telling women that if they bring guns into their homes, that they are more likely to die of domestic violence.

They assert that if you bring a gun into your home, that Evil Males™ will simply take your gun away from you, and kill you with it.

Presumably, Watts and her ilk would rather you take your beating quietly.

A woman in Henderson, Nevada, apparently wasn’t too keen on taking the “let me sit here and take my beating instead of protecting myself with a gun” advice dished out by Moms Demand. Though she lacked a firearm of her own, she did have a neighbor with one that may have saved her life when her estranged boyfriend invaded her home with ill intent.

Earlier in the night, the couple got into an argument at a party before the woman took her boyfriend home and drove to her own apartment. Police described the couple as estranged.

Fearful that he might show up at her home, she called a man who lives in her apartment complex, Paul said. Her boyfriend, 49, eventually arrived and tried to kick in the front door before climbing in through a window.

The neighbor cautioned him to stop and told him that he had a weapon, Paul said. The alleged intruder reportedly continued to advance toward them, and the armed man fired several shots, striking and killing him.

The gun grabbing left has been pushing this nonsense for decades. They ignore, deliberately, the tens of thousands of Americans, many of them women, who use firearms to defend themselves annually. Like all Leftist groups, they use lies, and fear tactics to pursue their real aim, control, of people.

 

Illegal Alien Jailed For Domestic Violence Makes Bail, Then Stabs Wife To Death

Illegal Alien Makes Bail, Stabs Wife To Death – Downtrend

A California county’s refusal to detain an illegal alien, accused of violence, has ended in tragedy. Mario Chavez was charged with several serious crimes related to a domestic fight in August of this year. He made bail, ignored a restraining order and stabbed his wife to death. What makes this crime even more horrific is that it should have never happened. Chavez was in this country illegally and should have been detained, but Santa Clara County, where the crime occurred, doesn’t honor federal immigration requests to hold undocumented lawbreakers.

.
…………………

During the violent domestic argument, Chavez threatened his wife and 6-year old son with a knife. He was charged with criminal threats, child endangerment and brandishing a weapon. Chavez’s wife was also granted a protective order as a result of the incident. Despite the seriousness of the charges, a judge set the bail at $8000, which Chavez was able to post.

The restraining order provided no protection. Two weeks after the incident, Chavez went to his house and viciously stabbed his wife to death. The couple’s two young children were in the next room watching cartoons as their father killed their mother. It was a senseless homicide that could have been stopped if Chavez’s immigration status was made available to the feds.

The way U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents identify criminal illegal aliens is through a program called “Secure Communities.” With the program, local law enforcement is encouraged to submit fingerprints of those arrested to be run through the Department Of Homeland Security’s database. If identified, Agents will send a request for the prisoner to be held for up to 48 hours so deportation proceedings can be initiated. Santa Clara County disregards these requests.

In this case, the Secure Communities program wouldn’t have worked because Chavez had no prints on record; however, he was unable to establish legal residency. ICE bolsters the program by reviewing jail intake records and interviewing inmates. Agents could have easily determined he was in the country illegally. Unfortunately, Santa Clara County bans federal agents from contact with inmates without a warrant.

This tragedy could have been averted if there was any cooperation between the county and the feds. If agents were allowed access to Chavez, an interview would have revealed his illegal status. That, along with his arresting offenses, would have allowed him to be taken into federal custody and processed for deportation. He would not have been free to kill his wife.

County Supervisor Dave Cortese tried to pass blame from the uncooperative county policy and onto the legal system itself. He noted that Chavez was charged with serious crimes but that the district attorney did not request a higher bail.

“If (the DA) wants to be tougher on felons, he should do that. But don’t deflect attention to undocumented people,” said Cortese.

Cortese was unmoved by the killing and skeptical of the public-safety benefit of complying with the Safe Communities program. He said cases like Chavez’s represent only a small fraction of violent offenders in jail. Most inmates are U.S. citizens that wouldn’t be caught in the wide net cast by ICE, he added.

What a disgusting and callous attitude from an elected official. Here’s at least one public-safety benefit from detaining illegal aliens: a mother would still be alive and her children wouldn’t have been rendered, for all intents and purposes, orphans. How is protecting the rights of people who are in this country illegally more important than lives of the public at large?

Illegal aliens shouldn’t have rights beyond basic human rights anyways. They are not citizens. They are not legal residents. They should not be free to rob, rape and murder. I realize that Chavez’s wife was more than likely also undocumented, but it doesn’t mean he should have been given the means to slaughter her.

There are thousands of crimes committed by people who shouldn’t be in this country every year. Many of these crimes are violent and deadly and often perpetrated by people who have prior arrests. The policies of Santa Clara County, and other “safe haven” locales, put the public at risk. Human life is worth a little compliance and cooperation.

Latest Moonbat outburst- Women will be Beaten Because of GOP

That these nimrods spout such nonsense is bad. That a significant number of Americans believe them is far worse

Via CNS News:

Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) said that if the sequester goes into effect, women who are victims of domestic violence will be “forced to stay in their homes with their abuser” at the “hands of the GOP.”

The automatic across-the-board cuts, known as the sequester, are set to take effect on Friday – a 1.2% reduction in increased federal spending in 2013, or about $44 billion out of $3.6 trillion.

“The harm is real,” Edwards said.  “230,000 victims will be calling crisis hotlines and those calls will go unanswered.  230,000 calls to crisis hotlines around the country.”

“So can you imagine that in the middle of the night a woman is being battered, she has her two children, she wants to get to safety, she places a phone call to a hotline and that line goes unanswered,” she said.  “That’s what sequestration means to victims of domestic violence.”

Of course, the sequestration is a reduction, a 1% reduction in spending INCREASES, that is not really a cut in spending at all. The Democrats are trying to scare all of us into panic mode. And, when the dire calamities they predict do not happen? It will not matter, the Democrats will just go on saying they DID happen because of those evil Republicans.

Your strange headline of the day

‘Blade Runner’ Oscar Pistorius charged with murder

Olympic and Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius was charged with murder Thursday after his girlfriend was shot dead at his South African home.

South African Police spokeswoman Denise Beukes said that Pistorius, 26, and the victim were the only people present when the shooting took place. The woman had been shot at least twice, police said.

Pistorius will appear for a court hearing on Friday at 9am local time, the South African prosecutor’s office confirmed.

Numerous media outlets reported that the sprinter — who is nicknamed “Blade Runner” because he races wearing carbon fiber prosthetic blades — may have mistaken the woman for an intruder. 

The slain woman was a model who had appeared in several men’s magazines

Beukes would not confirm the victim’s identity, but said investigators were “very surprised” to hear media reports that the shooting was possibly a case of mistaken identity. 

A publicist for Reeva Steenkamp, a model whom Pistorius was dating, confirmed to NBC’s TODAY that her client was dead. She described the incident as a “huge loss for everyone and too shocking for words.”Was this an accident? Or was it something else? There had been some accusations of domestic abuse

Beukes said there had been reports about previous problems at Pistorius’ home that were “allegations of a domestic nature.” When a reporter asked if she meant domestic violence, she nodded and said yes.

“There are witnesses and we have interviewed them,” she added. “We’re talking about neighbors and people who heard things earlier in the evening and when the shooting took place.”

What a tragedy.

Thuggery you say?

A Nod to the Gods compares the bad behavior of NBA players and NFL players, and comes up with some shocking results

36 have been accused of spousal abuse

7 have been arrested for fraud

19 have been accused of writing bad checks

117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

3 have done time for assault

71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit

14 have been arrested on drug-related charges

8 have been arrested! for shoplifting

21 currently are defendants in lawsuits, and 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year !

OK, time to vote kids, which way do you vote?

If you said NBA, you are wrong

However if you said the NFL, you are still wrong

That abysmal record belongs not to the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, or any sports leagues. The real thugs do not dunk, run for TD’s steal bases, hit home runs or skate in hockey arenas. They inhabit Congress. And if you think that is a scary stat, just think about this. The people these folks are supposed to represent, keep electing them.

 

Your dirt bag of the day is Patrick Moran

Who is the son of Jim Moran, a Democratic Congressman from Virginia. Patrick has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend

Patrick B. Moran, 23, of Arlington County pleaded guilty to one count of simple assault, a misdemeanor. A D.C. Superior Court judge suspended a 90-day jail term and sentenced him to one year’s probation. Moran will also have to complete domestic-violence counseling and 50 hours of community service.

Domestic-violence counseling? How about we lock Patrick in  a cage with a Navy Seal of Green Beret? I think that is fitting for a scumbag that does this…

According to a police account of the Dec. 1 incident contained in court documents, an officer saw Moran grab a woman by the back of her head and slam it into a trash can about 1:23 a.m. in front of the Getaway nightclub in Columbia Heights.

Of course, the good Congressman is trying to cover for his son

A e-mailed statement from Kelly Hofmann, Moran’s girlfriend, that was circulated by his father’s office after the plea had been entered called the incident one that “has been blown out of proportion” and said she was hurt when one of her high heels gave out and she fell into a trash can.

Another statement released by a spokesman for the congressman (D-Va.) also called the incident an “accident.”

Battered women often lie, or cover for their abuser, but, this time police officers witnessed that assault. Maybe she is even being pressured to do so now? Frankly, the police report does not back up her story

Patrick Moran was initially charged with felony assault. Hofmann was found bleeding “heavily” from her nose, according to court records, and her nose and right eye were “extremely” swollen.

Of course, we should also consider Patrick Moran’s recent disgarce

Moran resigned from his post as field director for his father’s reelection campaign in October after a conservative activist released an undercover video of Moran discussing potential ways to commit voter fraud. Arlington police and Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II said they would investigate the incident, in which Moran was captured in the video suggesting that someone could use forged utility bills as proof of voter eligibility.

What a winner he is! More at The Other McCain

Michelle has a look at the past of Jim Moran too. Real classy bunch!

Wife kills abusive husband in self-defense only to discover ‘he’ was actually a woman wearing prosthetic penis

Many thoughts came to mind when I read that headline, but WTF summed them up best!

When a woman killed her abusive husband out of self-defense, she found out that ‘he’ was actually a woman wearing a prosthetic penis.

Angelo Heddington and Elizabeth Rudavsky from Canada had a whirlwind romance, which was followed by a shotgun wedding after four months of dating, and then escalating domestic violence.

But when a battered 27-year-old Elizabeth stabbed Angelo, 30, after he attacked her in 2003, it was the paramedics who discovered a prosthetic penis under ‘his’ clothes on the way to the hospital.
