Texas Police To Take 700 Guns Away From Citizens

Texas Police To Take 700 Guns Away From Citizens

Deep in the heart of Texas, where there are more firearms in homes than people, Dallas County will start taking guns away from a specific group of individuals as early as this week. As an avid supporter of American’s right the bear arms, I also support the county’s move to do this, but the method has me a bit puzzled.

Dallas County will be the first in the nation to collect weapons from domestic violence offenders as a preventative measure to keep victims safe. Statistics prove that women are 500 times more likely to lose their life in an argument with a violent offender if there is a gun in the home. But before anyone gets up in arms about government overreach into someone’s armory, understand that there are no rights being taken away here. The way it works does not mean officials are knocking down offender’s doors, raiding homes, and seizing what’s not theirs. In fact, the rule operates on an honor system with criminals.

According to WFAA, this rule is not new, but the execution of it is. Federal and state law forbids anyone with a domestic violence conviction or an emergency protective order against them from possessing firearms, but until now, Dallas didn’t have a way to collect and store relinquished guns.

County Criminal Court Judge Roberto Cañas, who is one of two judges who handle misdemeanor domestic violence cases, devised a plan called “Firearm Surrender Project,” in collaboration with a local Dallas Fort Worth area gun range, where criminals can go and safely surrender and store their guns until they are legally able to have them back.

Texas To Take 700 Guns Away Starting NOW, But That's Not The REAL Issue

Although officials expect to collect around 700 guns each year under this plan, that’s giving criminals far too much credit in assuming they are going to be honest about what weaponry they have at home.

More than it being an ineffective project, considering it relies on the unreliable word of a criminal, it’s going to cost taxpayers in the area a lot of money. Cañas’ collection idea includes having a deputy on staff at the private gun rage to run the operation of signing in and out offenders’ firearms.

Taxes will be used to cover that salary, along with start-up costs to get the project rolling. So far, $37,000 has already been dumped into this, through a grant given to the country from the governor’s office. Cañas and crew will need double that amount over the next year to keep the project going.

The way the rule works is that offenders are simply asked at conviction if they have a gun. IF they are honest and admit they do, they are ordered to surrender that gun at the range and get it signed off that they did. They are also given the option to give it to a third-party instead, to someone who is legally able to own a gun. That looks a lot like, “Here friend, take my gun, say I gave it to you, then give it back.”

“There’s no doubt that the intersection of firearms and domestic violence is a very lethal one,” Cañas said. “If we can take a step that will even prevent one homicide, this project will be worth it.”

Texas To Take 700 Guns Away Starting NOW, But That's Not The REAL Issue

Criminals can’t buy guns if they’re convicted of violent crimes and they shouldn’t be able to keep guns they have after conviction if they are a proven threat to people’s lives. But the fact is, felons will always have firearms because they don’t buy them through legal means, and they aren’t going to be honest in giving them up.

For this reason alone, everyone needs to own firearms to defend themselves against the unknown. It’s the bad guy with a gun that gives the good guys with guns a bad rap with gun-grabbers. Effort and money would be better spent in empowering women to know how to use a firearm and prevent themselves from becoming a victim in the first place, or again if they already are one.

Blacks Beat Elderly White Man Until Hero Shows Up With Gun

Elderly man gun blacks shooting police

As a young man was walking out of a Kroger grocery store in Little Rock, Arkansas, he saw something terrifying and decided to act immediately. Seven people had surrounded a helpless elderly man and were beating him to the ground.

Without deliberating what he should do, the 24-year-old, identified only by his first name Gene, did what he had to in this tense situation. He dropped his bags and drew his weapon on the punks across the parking lot.

“I saw seven people against one guy and I did not like those odds,” Gene told KOLR-TV. Adding that he was freaking out and shaking, it was his first time pulling his gun on anyone since he first decided to pack heat.

Surveillance footage outside the grocery store captured the moment on April 22 when Gene pointed his gun at the abusive thugs, threatening to pull the trigger if the cowards refused to stop beating the elderly gentleman. The gun got the attackers’ attention, who shouted back at the concealed carry permit holder, ”This isn’t your fight, you need to walk away, you need to put the gun down,” according to The Blaze.

Punks Beat Elderly Man In Lot Until Hero Shows Up With His Little Friend

Other shoppers outside the store who witnessed the standoff immediately alerted police from their cell phones. But by the time officers arrived at the scene, the assailants had scattered off like the rodents they are, and the victim had gotten away as well.

Although it’s unclear what caused the altercation between the guys and the elderly man, a followup investigation revealed that one of the assailants was the victim’s nephew. Police spoke with the elderly man and about the attack, and he opted to not press charges.

Despite this being the first time Gene had to brandish his weapon after years of legally carrying one, he would not hesitate to make that decision again, as it was the right thing to do and the reason gun owners are prepared — to protect the lives of others when they’re in danger.

“When you see a crime happening and you see someone getting injured, if you have the ability to stop it, you should do so,” Gene said.

He was also responsible in keeping his finger far from the trigger while pointing his weapon at the punks, as he was always taught not to touch it until he intends to pull it.

Witnesses to Gene’s reactions supported his decision to pull his gun. “The guy did the right thing,” one woman said.

The infamous anti-gun whiners Moms Demand Action have pushed and begged for Kroger stores in particular to ban concealed carry, since they believe the store is somehow a magical place where nothing bad ever happens. But this incident proves just how ridiculous their “groceries not guns” argument is. They believe that in situation such as this elderly man getting the beat down, he should just endure the injuries, maybe even death, while people standby shouting for the thugs to stop, hoping that police arrive sooner rather than later.

Woman’s Violent Ex Tried To Kill Her, But Police Ended Up Shooting Her Instead

Woman’s Violent Ex Tried To Kill Her, But Police Ended Up Shooting Her Instead

A woman in Alabama just used a shotgun to defend herself against a violent attacker … but in a bizarre turn of events police ended up pulling the trigger on her.

Lisa Skinner had been in fear for her life for many weeks. The 52-year-old had filed restraining orders against a man she knew very well — her estranged husband.

That man, Bradley Skinner, had previously been arrested on charges of harassment and domestic violence. Over the last several days, his behavior became more and more erratic.

“He began talking about dying and had often mentioned that he wanted to ‘take out all of his enemies and die by PoPo,’” wrote Lisa before the fateful attack occurred.

“[He] wished the police would kill him after he had killed his enemies. I am certainly now an enemy,” the woman explained.

The restraining order against Bradley was supposed to keep him away. It didn’t.

On Sunday evening, Bradley Skinner broke into the house where Lisa was staying with her mother. He was carrying a pistol and a large knife … and he was definitely not there to chat.

Lisa armed herself with a shotgun and tried to get away through the garage, but the armed man followed her.

That’s when Lisa fired her shotgun and hit her estranged husband in the chest.

It should have been over — but then things took a turn for the worst.

Police officers arrived on scene just in time to hear the shotgun blasts. They came around the corner to the garage and saw the woman holding the shotgun.

The cops ordered her to drop the weapon. Instead — possibly still in shock — Lisa turned toward the police with the shotgun.

At least one of the responding officers fired at the woman. She was struck by at least one police bullet.

Officers quickly realized what was happening and gave medical attention to both Lisa and her husband-turned-attacker.

It could have been a fatal night for both the husband and wife, but Lisa was reportedly in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

Bradley, on the other hand, was not so fortunate. He sustained life threatening injuries and his condition was unclear.

Concealed Carrying “Uber” Driver Stopped MASS MURDER in Chicago

Concealed Carrying “Uber” Driver Stopped MASS MURDER in Chicago

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

That quote usually causes smoke to pour out of liberals’ heads … but a recent incident in Chicago proves just how true it is.

Over the past weekend, a criminal named Everardo Custodio tried to commit mass murder.

Police say he pointed an illegal handgun at a sidewalk full of people in Logan Square andopened fire on the crowd.

That incident could have been another deadly tragedy in one of the country’s most dangerous cities.

This time, however, things were different.

A 47-year-old Uber taxi service driver had just dropped off a passenger when he saw Custodio open fire on innocent people.

Instead of taking cover, he took action.

The anonymous Uber driver decided that he wasn’t going to stand by while innocent people died. He pulled out a concealed shotgun from his car and dropped the rampaging criminal with several well-placed shots.

According to authorities, the heroic driver has a concealed carry permit and was carrying his firearm legally in his vehicle.

There were no charges filed against the armed Good Samaritan, and the man “was acting in self-defense and in the defense of others,” according to Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn.

The criminal, meanwhile, was taken to a hospital where he was put under arrest. He’s facing charges of aggravated battery with a firearm and illegal possession of a firearm.

For many years, Chicago has had some of the most draconian gun laws in the nation. Incidents like this, however, are showing us exactly why people need the right to defend themselves — and in this case, defend an entire crowd.

Criminals bent on murder don’t follow laws. Unarmed, innocent people are a crowd of just victims. When responsible citizens can be armed, however, they have a fighting chance to defend their lives.

Alabama Young Woman Leaves Family To Join ISIS

Alabama Young Woman Leaves Family To Join ISIS

Muslim woman

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A spokesman for a Muslim couple in Alabama says their 20-year-old daughter fled a Birmingham suburb to join Islamic State militants in Syria after being recruited on the Internet.

Attorney Hassan Shibly spoke at a Birmingham mosque on Monday on behalf of the parents of the young woman, whom he identified only as Hoda.

Shibly said Hoda left in November after being “brainwashed” for an undetermined length of time. He says the woman’s actions go against the family’s wishes and against the teachings of Islam.

The spokesman added that Hoda’s family has been in contact with U.S. law enforcement and government officials since she disappeared.

Members of the Birmingham Muslim community were meeting on Monday evening to discuss how to protect other children from the influence of militants.

Florida Sheriff:  ‘Surrender peacefully or You can guarantee we’re going to shoot you!’

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd responded defiantly to a reporter on Friday when he was asked if he “regrets” saying that his officers were prepared for a “gunfight” with a group of dangerous murder suspects.

“I think everybody understands the gravity of what happened and the urgency and the response that you took,” the reporter began. “Some of the comments you made last night about shooting the suspects, possibly, and the comments today about ‘ready for a gunfight’ — was that in the heat of the moment? Do you have any regret about that?”

The sheriff immediately took a stern tone in responding to the question.

Mob of Muslims Abduct Christian Nurse, Repeatedly Gang Rape Her

Mob of Muslims Abduct Christian Nurse, Repeatedly Gang Rape Her

A group of Muslims in Libya abducted a Christian nurse from her home then repeatedly gang raped her only days after a Christian construction worker was beheaded in Benghazi for not being a Muslim.

Shoebat reports that a gang of six Muslim men pulled a Filipino nurse from her home and repeatedly gang raped her in Libya’s capitol, Tripoli.

The group of thugs snatched the woman on Wednesday then took her to an unknown location, where six men repeatedly assaulted her, according to the foreign affairs spokesman for the Philippines, Charles Jose.

As a result of the woman’s rape, the Filipino government has called for the evacuation of all 13,000 of its citizens in Libya, which has seen a massive increase in violence over the last few months. In fact, just days prior to the woman’s rape, a Christian Filipino construction worker was beheaded by Muslim savages amid allegations he wasn’t a Muslim.

“We condemn these crimes that have been committed against our people,” President Benigno Aquino’s spokesman Herminio Coloma said in Manila.

As Shoebat points out, the reason such horrific crimes are being committed against the Filipino people is because of their Catholic faith.

“From the Reconquista to the Crusades, the Catholic Church was, and is still, the primary enemy of the Muslim heresy.”

The very people that Obama has been aiding and abetting have been perpetrating theses heinous acts on non-Muslims, and they’re going unchecked. Meanwhile, the United Nations is looking to prosecute the Israelis for “war crimes” due to Palestinian casualties while defending themselves from the animalistic extremists that make up Hamas.

It’s mind-boggling that anybody could ever expect peace with people who are so blinded by their ideology, yet repeatedly their actions are excused or widely ignored while those who speak out against them are demonized as “Islamophobic.” If speaking out against disgusting and barbaric acts such as this makes us Islamophobic, then we should all wear the label with pride.

Muslim Man Tried To “Dispose” Of His Three-Year-Old Daughter

Muslim Man Tried To “Dispose” Of His Three-Year-Old Daughter

Several people were driving on a road near a wooded area of Illinois when they saw a disturbing sight: A little girl in tears, wandering out of the forest alone.

The three-year-old girl was distraught, but she was able to tell people that her name was Aliya.

When police asked the child how she ended up in the forest alone, the traumatized child gave them a chilling answer.

She had been taken there by her father, who pushed her into a secluded trash can like a piece of human garbage.

“Our investigation initially shows that the father left the child in a garbage can and drove away from the forest preserve,” said Andrew Flach, a state Family Services spokesman.

Police added that the man had left three-year-old Aliya “where he believed she would not immediately be found.”

What kind of monster would treat a young girl like garbage? Police received a shocking answer to that question very quickly.

Investigators sent out a media alert and were contacted by Aliya’s desperate mother. That’s when the case became even more twisted.

The investigation found that the girl’s father is named Faiz Ikramulla. That is a Muslim name that means “Glory to God” in Arabic… and police knew they had heard it before.

Ikramulla was no stranger to the police. Last year, he attacked cops and led them on a high-speed chase that damaged several police cars and endangered many lives.

According to the Chicago Tribune, that previous incident ended with the man being Tasered while he spit blood at police officers and screamed “Allahu akbar!”

Warrants were quickly issued for the fleeing man’s arrest, and police located him in the southern part of Michigan. He was charged with kidnapping his own three-year-old. Additional charges are also likely.

What would drive a father to try to “dispose” of his only daughter in a trash can where he thought nobody would ever find her?
