It is called a holster idiot!

Good Freaking Grief!

Responsible gun owners know that if you’re going to carry directly on your person, you never forgo a holster. Tucking your firearm into the waistband of your pants, your belt or your pocket is, simply put, an accident waiting to happen.

Unfortunately, one Missouri gun owner never got the memo – or he did and just chose to ignore it.

The man was shopping at a University City grocery store with a loaded firearm tucked into the waistband of his jeans, sans holster. Since a waistband provides little to no support and fails to keep your weapon properly oriented, the handgun quickly began to slip down the man’s pants. In his attempt to keep the gun from falling to the floor – and with nothing protecting the trigger – the man accidentally discharged a single round…and shot himself right in the leg.

Your hero of the Day

Remember the man that saved an Arizona state trooper by shooting the man attacking the trooper? Well, here he is

Consider former felon Thomas Yoxall’s debt to society paid in full, with interest.

The man who shot and killed an assault suspect on a dark highway in Arizona, rescuing a state trooper, said on Wednesday that he doesn’t think of himself as a hero.

The Good Samaritan had requested media anonymity since the early-morning January 12 incident on Interstate 10.

Today, he made his first appearance since the incident at a news conference at the headquarters of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

He identified himself as Thomas Yoxall, 43, a maintenance supervisor with a passion for photography and reading.

And he mentioned that he has a “past.”

As court records show, that past includes a 2000 conviction for felony theft.

Fortunately for DPS Trooper Edward Andersson, whose life hung on the edge before Yoxall showed up on January 12, Yoxall had his gun rights restored in 2003 after he successfully completed probation.

Yoxall has paid back his debt to society — big-time.

“That morning, I never would have dreamt that I was going to save somebody’s life, let alone take the life of another individual,” Yoxall said. “I don’t recall any thought or feeling of fear. It happened very quickly. There wasn’t necessarily time for me to react, or think logically. I don’t consider myself a hero that day.”

Yet DPS officials describe Yoxall’s actions in terms that could, in fact, best be described as heroic.

Trooper Edward Andersson responded to a vehicle rollover and saw a man and woman ejected from a vehicle. As Andersson approached, the man—an illegal alien who used to be a federal Mexican police officer named Leonard Penuelas-Escobar—fired a handgun that hit Andersson in the shoulder. Penuelas-Escobar then began slamming Andersson’s head into the pavement, trying to kill him.

Yoxall saw the attack as it took place, pulled over, and grabbed the handgun he kept in the center console and ran to help Trooper Andersson. When Penuelas-Escobar refused to stop attacking Andersson and Andersson called for assistance, Yoxall took a firing position that didn’t put Andersson in the line of fire, and took two shots that put Penuelas-Escobar down. Mr. Yoxall then ran to assist Trooper Andersson, only to see Penuelas-Escobar rise up and come at them both. Yoxall then took careful aim and shot Penuelas-Escobar in the head, killing him.

Penuelas-Escobar and the woman killed in the incident,Vanessa Lopez-Ruiz, were allegedly meth users and drug dealers.

The perfect answer to a common question

Via Mike McDaniel who tackles the “Why do you carry a firearm” query


* Evil exists and may confront anyone at any time and any place.

* I believe God exists and expects me to protect those that can’t protect themselves.

* Self-defense is a God-given, natural, unalienable right.

* There is no gift so precious as God’s gift of life.

* To fail to protect God’s greatest gift is inexcusable.

* My life is worth far more to me, those that love me, and to a just society than the lives of vicious criminals and terrorists.

* The lives of the innocent—friend or stranger—are worth far more to me and to a just society than the lives of vicious criminals and terrorists.

* Three times in my life I have raised my right hand and sworn a solemn oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.  I have never betrayed those oaths and never will.

* By carrying my handgun, I honor the foresight and wisdom of the Founders in writing the Second Amendment.

* The Constitution is only paper and ink, a statement of principals and intentions. When the will wavers and when some wish to change, ignore or destroy those principals and intentions for light and transient reasons, only the threat and, if necessary, the application of the force of arms, will suffice to preserve liberty.

* A handgun is the most convenient, usual and effective means of self-defense.

* Going armed reinforces and upholds the Social Contract.

* An armed society is a polite society.

Pretty much perfect, and yes, there is much more go read it all

Your Ugly Fact of the Day……..

Democrats, AKA Neo-Marxists see armed Americans as more of a threat than terrorists. So, rather than helping Americans defend themselves, they push for useless laws that will only affect law-abiding gun owners, and, will, lead to gun bans eventually. As Bob Owens points out if Democrats WANTED to help end mass shootings they would be pushing to ban gun free zones

If Democrats really want to stop the vast majority of mass killings, they can push for one simple law that would have the dual effects of restoring liberties nationwide, and destroying the common target of nearly every mass murder.


Yes, nearly 99% of all mass public murders over the last 66 years have the common denominator of occurring in so-called “gun free zones,” places where citizens have been prevented from being able to legally carry firearms for their own self-defense and the defense of others. Those evil souls who have decided that they must rage against innocent random human life nearly always pick densely populated spaces where they know citizens have been disarmed by ill-informed politicians.

If I were running the GOP, and man would I do a better job than those who are, I would demand Democrats join in voting to do away with “gun-free” zones which are killing fields for mass murderers and terrorists. I would hit them with this demand over and over and over! I would demand every Republican Senator and Representative to pound the Democrats with the facts on “gun violence”. And I would ask every member of Congress to bring Americans who have used a firearm to defend themselves, their families, and homes to testify about their experience!

Violent crime and homicide rates are steadily falling, there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of defensive gun uses annually, and 13 million or more American are carrying firearms safely and legally. New gun sales are skyrocketing and violent crime is falling! This message needs to be pounded over and again! WE ought never allow the Left to own the language!

NBA player killed after kicking in man’s apartment door

Very sad story here. But, unless some new details emerge, this player caused his own death. Bob Owens has the story

NBA guard Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed in a home invasion on Saturday.

Bryce Dejean-Jones of the NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans forced his way into the wrong apartment in Dallas early Saturday morning, and earned a bullet for his thuggish behavior.

NBA player Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed early Saturday after he broke into a Dallas apartment he believed was his girlfriend’s and instead startled a man he didn’t know, according to police and his agent.

The 23-year-old New Orleans Pelicans guard “kicked open the front door” to a unit in the Camden Belmont Apartments, just east of Central Expressway and Fitzhugh Avenue, about 3:20 a.m., police said.

NBA player Bryce Dejean-Jones was shot and killed early Saturday after he broke into a Dallas apartment he believed was his girlfriend’s and instead startled a man he didn’t know, according to police and his agent.

The player then kicked in, or was trying to kick in the bedroom door. The resident retrieved a firearm, called out to the intruder, who did not respond and fired, killing Dejean-Jones.

If everything in the report is true, then I can think of nothing else the resident of the apartment could have done but protect his life. A stranger kicking in your front door, then kicking in your in the process of kicking in your bedroom door would certainly cause you to fear for your life

Lakeland Home Invasion Suspect Shot, Killed By Homeowner – WTVT


A man was shot and killed when deputies say he unlawfully entered a home and fired at two people inside.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said it happened at a home on Chestnut Hills Drive around 6:30 a.m. New Year’s Day.

Chevez Antwann Fiason, 24, was shot and killed by the homeowner during the incident. No one else was injured in the incident.

Fiason was said to have a violent arrest history and was released from state prison in March 2015.

“Forcing your way into an occupied residence is a bold and foolish decision – if you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County,” Sheriff Grady Judd said.

The incident in under investigation, but no arrests had been made.



Senator Chris Murphy diagnosed with Truth Deficit Disorder

Murphy, a Democrat Statist is like most members of the Cult of Gun Control in that he lies, deliberately he loathes natural rights, such as the right of self-defense. It takes a truly miserable excuse for a human being to lie, again, DELIBERATELY, in order to strip the most basic human rights from good people.

As Vox Day notes, the first law of social justice warriors is that they always lie. Then they continue the lie, and build on the lie in order to push The Narrative forward. Here’s a perfect example

(Breitbart) On December 31 Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) claimed there were 372 mass shootings–or more than one mass shooting a day–during calendar year 2015. On the other hand, Mother Joneseditor Mark Follmanreported four mass shootings for the whole year and USA Today reported approximately 22.

What accounts for the jump from from four–or even 22–to 372? The jump is the result of Senator Chris Murphy’s (D-CT) complete rejection of the FBI criteria for a mass shooting. That criteria is four fatalities in one shooting incident. Instead of using this, Murphy has adopted the criteria of Shooting Tracker, a website which labels any shooting or series of shootings a “mass shooting” if there are four or more injuries.

There does not have to be a death, and the injuries do not have to be the result of just one shooting incident but can be the result of numerous incidents added together. This means Senator Murphy counts a parking lot shootout–like the one WMC-TV reported between two groups of people in two separate cars in Memphis, Tennessee in October–as a “mass shooting.” And it also means that an Elkhart, Indiana, parking brawl involving over a 100 people–where some of those people pulled guns and opened fire–counts as a “mass shooting” too. The South Bend Tribune reported that “four individuals were found to be wounded” in that October 14 brawl.

Murphy also inflated the number of deaths by including the shooters themselves, an example of doubling down on the lie to continue The Narrative.

With all these gang related shootings, one might think we have a gang problem, not a gun problem.

Here is to Sen. Murphy

Yes Democrats loathe natural rights

The right to bear arms, and to self-defense are at the very top of their targets

Yes, they really are coming for your guns, and they aren’t being coy about it in the slightest.

A pathetic contingent of liberty-hating, anti-American Democrats have introduced H. R. 4269, “To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.”

Yes, they’ve proposed a bill that directly counters the wording of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. They are that brazen in their hatred of your natural right to armed self-defense.

They would like to outlaw the vast majority of the best-selling rifles, shotguns, and handguns in the United States, any device or part that could “accelerate the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle,” (which could mean literally anything depending on ATF interpretation), parts kits that enable citizens to build common firearms, and standard capacity magazines.

But they aren’t done yet.

Unlike the 1994 “assault weapon” ban, this one will make it “unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.”

They intend to make it illegal to transfer any of the tens of millions of firearms that they would ban, with then specific intent of having all of these firearms be made illegal by simple attrition in the course of a generation.

You would not be allowed to pass down your firearms to your family members, nor would you be allowed to share them with family and friends at the range. When you died, your grandfathered guns would be made illegal, despite their clear and obvious utility as firearms useful for contemporary service in the militia.

This bill is nothing more or less than a direct assault on the Second Amendment.

Their aims are evil frankly. Yes seeking to disarm law-abiding people is evil. Such a bill would never come from Republicans, or be signed by any Republican currently running for the White House. Those who insist the two parties are the same, should consider this. Turning over Congress to the Democrats could lead to such a law being passed, and signed should Hillary win the presidency. Never forget this.

Your Self-defense Story of the Day

The Liberal bed wetters who go ballistic when it is suggested we should teach our kids to shoot, at an appropriate age of course, will hate this story

This is intense:

Officials with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office say one person is dead after a 13-year-old boy opened fire at a suspected burglar at a home on Tuesday.

CCSO officials announced late Tuesday afternoon that one of the subjects involved in the attempted burglary at an Elderwood Drive home died at Trident Hospital.

Authorities did not say who the subject was, but did state that the juvenile involved was not the deceased subject.

The incident happened at a home in the Woodside community.

According to CCSO officials, the boy reported hearing someone trying to break into the home, so he got his mother’s gun and went to the back door.

“He saw a subject out back trying to get inside so he fired his mother’s gun through the door and the subject reportedly fired back,” CCSO officials said.”The subject fled the scene in a silver vehicle.”

Authorities say the silver vehicle reportedly took the subject to Trident Hospital.

The responding deputies arrived at the home on Elderwood Drive at 1:34 p.m.

An incident report states the boy was asked to come out of the home.

Deputies say the boy then exited the home without incident.

“Sheriff’s Office has detectives on the scene at Elderwood and at the hospital,” authorities said.

The sheriff’s office is continuing the investigation.

Neighbors said they were thankful for the boy’s quick action.

Thank God he had access to a firearm. I know I can hear the Cult of Gun Control wailing as I write that, but I am correct in my statement. Certainly no Liberal “gun control” law was going to stop the thugs from breaking in that home, and what happens if that boy was not able to defend himself? Yep, I think we know how that story ends.

Who wants to bet Moms Demand Action will laud this mother for her #GunSense ?

On the surface, 21-year-old Semantha Bunce doesn’t appear to be much different than any other new mom, but when home invaders kicked in her door as she fed her four-month-old son, she showed the soul of a warrior as she took the fight to those who dared to put her family in danger.

Bunce met the home invaders head-on in a gun battle, driving them from her home. Even though she took two hits in the exchange of gunfire, she managed to climb back up the stairs and check on her son before she dialed 911 and began taking care of her wounds before the ambulance arrived:

Bunce met the intruders at her bedroom door and when the men opened fire on her in the stairwell area, she fired back, her husband said.

“I think it was a shock to the intruders just as much as it was to her,” said Paul Bunce, her husband.

Paul told Channel 9 his wife is a combat medic with the National Guard. He believes her training allowed her to stay mentally focused and calm during what was a fight for her life.

Think how this would have gone if the Cult of Gun Control goons had their way?

Let all hope Dominos does not fire this employee for protecting his life

Police say a Domino’s delivery driver was delivering  pizzas near Timothys Landing off 103rd street when  he was approached by two armed man, demanding money.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the deliveryman grabbed his own gun and shot one of the suspects.

Action News Jax spoke with crime and safety expert Ken Jefferson to see if the shooting is justified.

“This is a clear case of self-defense this person was working and was approached by two armed men,” said Ken Jefferson.

Jefferson says as long as the pizza deliveryman had a permit for that gun he used, he was in his rights to carry that weapon.

“He protected himself with the weapon he had,” said Jefferson.

An armed pastor, is a good pastor

The pastor of a small storefront church in Detroit was forced to shoot a 25-year-old man to defend his congregation during a service yesterday afternoon after the man came in and threatened them with a brick:

A pastor shot and killed a man armed with a brick during a church service on Sunday after the man threatened parishioners at the City of God Church on Detroit’s west side, according to police.

The shooting happened inside the church on Grand River Avenue around 1:45 p.m.

The 25-year-old man stormed into the church during a service wielding a brick. Police say the man was well known by the congregation and especially the pastor.

The 36-year-old pastor pulled out a gun and shot the man multiple times. Authorities say the pastor had been trying to help the man, but those efforts had gone south.

Investigators said four or five shots were fired from the Glock handgun.

“The suspect entered the church, he allegedly had a brick in his hand and was threatening the pastor,” said Asst. Detroit Police Chief Steve Dolunt. “We’ve had a previous incident, at least one, and the pastor filed a police report.”

The man was taken to the Botsford Hospital and was pronounced dead.

Authorities said the man has a history of threatening the pastor and members of the congregation.

Of course Hillary would do anything to consolidate as much power in the federal government, she is a Leftist, and a noted liar on guns

“Forty percent of guns are sold at gun shows, online sales.”

–Former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton, remarks on gun violence at Manchester Community College, N.H., Oct. 5, 2015

Clinton made this statement while decrying what she called a “loophole” in the law that permitted guns sales without a background check. “We need to close that loophole so that when we have universal background check, it will cover everybody,” Clinton said.

First, the “loophole” mentioned by Clinton refers to “person-to-person” sales, primarily by people who do not earn a livelihood from firearm sales.  People engaged in the business of selling guns by contrast need a Federal Firearms License (FFL), but unlicensed sellers can sell to a neighbor, a friend, at a gun show or over the Internet.

But many sellers at guns shows actually have an FFL and conduct background checks, while 17 states (including California, New York and Illinois) have passed laws which require at least background checks on all handgun sales at gun shows.

So where does the 40 percent figure come from? It is derived from studiesthat were based on data collected from a survey in 1994, the same year that the Brady Act requirements for background checks came into effect. In fact, the questions concerned purchases dating as far back as 1991, and the Brady Act went into effect in early 1994 — meaning that some, if not many, of the guns were bought in a pre-Brady environment.

The survey sample was relatively small — just 251 people. (The survey was done by telephone, using a random-digit-dial method, with a response rate of 50 percent.) With this sample size, the 95 percent confidence interval will be plus or minus six percentage points.

The analysis concluded that 35.7 percent of respondents indicated they did not receive the gun from a licensed firearms dealer. Rounding up gets you to 40 percent, although the survey sample is so small it could also be rounded down to 30 percent.

Moreover, when gifts, inheritances and prizes are added in, then the number shrinks to 26.4 percent. (The survey showed that nearly 23.8 percent of the people surveyed obtained their gun either as a gift or inherited it, and about half of them believed a licensed firearms dealer was the source.)

In short, this number the Cult of Gun Control has been throwing around is erroneous, and deliberately so. They lie because they have to, facts, like this one do NOT back their arguments up

A new FBI report shows that while FBI NICS background checks (a proxy for gun sales) have soared nearly 82-percent over the past 15 years, violent crime has plummeted over 18-percent.

Anti-liberty Democrats keep screaming that there is an “epidemic” of “gun violence,” but the facts just keep proving them wrong, year after year.

The FBI this month released the 2014 edition of Crime in the United States, and it revealed that the estimated number of reported violent crimes decreased 0.2 percent when compared with 2013. And the estimated number of property crimes decreased 4.3 percent from 2013 levels.

Homicides with firearms in 2014 were down 3.9 percent on a year-over-year basis. Consistent with previous years of this ongoing work, the vast majority of these murders were committed with handguns, although all categories of gun murders were lower. Rifles of all kinds were involved in just 3 percent of gun murders in 2014, lower than the number of deaths attributable to knives, blunt objects, and even fists or feet.

While the one-year numbers may not look that dramatic, they are nonetheless important because they serve to illustrate the long-term, 20-year downward trend in crime in the United States is continuing.

Using NSSF-adjusted National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) data over a ten-year period since 2005, the best proxy we have for firearms sales, we see a 74.1 percent increase in background checks even as the violent crime fell 16.2 percent.  The 15-year trend is even more dramatic, showing an 81.8 percent increase in NICS numbers even as violent crime fell 18.2 percent.

Put simply, more firearms in the hands of the mostly law-abiding American population have not yielded an increase in crime.

Facts destroy the argument for gun control folks, learn them, use them, and help preserve liberty

From right here in Dallas

DUNCANVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – A suspected robber is on the run and three others are in the hospital after a homeowner opened fire this afternoon.

“Almost like fire crackers but louder,” said neighbor Felicia White.

According to police, three men went into a home on the 6900 block of Rolling Creek Lane and attacked the homeowner. They said one of the men stole something from his house during the struggle before the homeowner grabbed a gun.

Neighbors reported hearing five gun shots. Police said that bullets hit all three suspected robbers. They said the suspects jumped into a Silver Dodge Avenger driven by a fourth man, and that the suspects stopped at an intersection by nearby Duncanville High School.

The three men who suffered gunshot wounds were arrested and taken to the hospital.

Again, we see how a gun can be a great equalizer from multiple assailants, or when used by a weaker victim attacked by a stronger assailant. Bob Owens notes this too

Last week I saw a tweet from a muscular 20-something martial arts fan in Washington D.C. who haughtily said that guns are for “losers.” He asserted that a “real man” could handle an opponent with empty hands.

That’s great… if you are young, healthy, trained in martial arts, and only face a single unarmed opponent willing to play by your dojo-approved rules.

In the real world, where bad guys aren’t interested in fighting fair, Mr. Ego wouldn’t fair so well.

How very true

Yes, the gun-free mentality serves evils purposes

There is a reason the Left loves the idealism behind “gun free zones”. It supports their idealistic, and foolish, belief that people are basically incapable of defending themselves. But the evil of gun free zones goes beyond simply disarming good people, thus making them soft targets for evil people. The evil idealism also wishers to prevent any armed civilian from defending themselves or others. Bob Owens has further proof

Air Force veteran John Parker, who had a licensed concealed carry gun on his side, was situated in a building about 200 yards away from where the shooting began at Umpqua Community College yesterday. Instead of taking down the active shooter, Parker was prevented by staff from intervening in the shooting in which ten people were killed.

“There were a few people in the vet center and then when we heard the shooting happened, we got up and we were gonna go out and see what we could do,” Parker told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“Immediately the school staff stopped us and told us to get inside of the building….essentially the staff wouldn’t let us go to assist,” he added.

While UCC does have a security guard, Joe Olson–the former president of Umpqua Community College–says the school only keeps one guard on shift at a time and that guard is unarmed.

Breitbart News previously reported that the Umpqua campus is a gun free zone, and former U.S. Marshal Art Roderick suggested the gunman chose the campus for that very reason. He said, “[The gunman] probably knew that the facility was a gun free facility, [which is] an easy target for these kinds of coward individuals. They know they’re not going to get any response unless they happen to run into security or a campus police officer.”

There you are, the staff believed there was somehow greater danger in allowing a armed military veteran, to try to help those being shot than allowing the shooter to continue unmolested. This foolish belief is easy to understand when you understand how the Left thinks. To them guns = bad, and that is where their thinking ends. If a madman is shooting up a school, then an armed American intent on stopping the carnage is equally bad because to the Left, guns = bad. This is especially true if the gun is in the hand of a citizen, because to the Left only the State may be armed.

Of course, those intent on disarming Americans will say that an armed citizen in that classroom would have not done any good. But, Chris Mintz, the Army vet who charged the shooter would have certainly been better served if he had been armed. But, I know, I know, I can hear the Cult of Gun Control now, an armed student would have been killed anyway, because it is somehow morally superior to die while disarmed than to die shooting back. Perhaps, but if I am ever in that situation, give me my firearm and I will take that chance over having no chance.

Trying to break in an armed Marine’s house? DUMB!

A gun Can be an equalizer, as this story at Bearing Arms proves

Fortunately for this prior-service Marine, he had a gun, which stopped this four-man home invasion crew in its tracks:

Four teenagers were in custody Monday in connection with an attempted home invasion in Hewitt that was thwarted when the former Marine whose home the teens targeted opened fire through the front door at the would-be intruders.

Chris Barrientos, 18, was arrested on Friday and was charged with aggravated robbery.

He remained jailed Monday on that charge and two unrelated complaints.

His bonds total $45,000.

Three other teens, two 16-year-olds and at 15-year-old, are in juvenile custody.

Their names were not released.

The 15-year-old and one of the 16-year-olds were arrested Friday.

Officers arrested the last of the four, a 16-year-old, Monday at University High School in Waco, Hewitt police Chief Jim Devlin said.

Information from an inmate in the McLennan County Jail led to the arrests.

“Based on those interviews and some of the physical evidence that we recovered, these individuals are going to be our suspects in this home invasion,” he said Monday.

The attempted break-in was reported just after 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 7 at a home in the 300 block of 2nd Street.

Home owner Eric Walters admits that he made a mistake when he opened the door for a stranger at 1:45 AM in the morning, but he was smart enough to be armed when he did so. Having that gun in his possession was the difference from being bum-rushed and overwhelmed in his home, and thwarting the attack before they could breach the door.

Be smart, be trained, and be armed.

Great point about NOT opening the door. I would not have opened that door in that situation, I have a 5-year-old niece in my home, no way I am going to endanger her safety. I would have called police, and waited. If they were needing some sort of help, the police could handle that. If those knocking, were up to no good, and tried to come through the door in the interim, then they would have posed an imminent threat to me, and my loved ones, and well, you do the math…………
