I have to say I choked myself a little bit. Where did this person get the 28 school shootings since Newtown? That would be more than 2 school shooting per month, every month for the past year.
I have noticed that Moms and other groups are flexible with their definitions whenever is convenient. Mass killings can be now any time when 2 or more people are killed by anybody and any reason,. So I would not be surprised that a school shut-down because of a crime committed nearby a locale of education is suddenly considered a school shooting. There has been a fair share of Violent Campus crime, so I would not be surprised they are included in the mix.
So, other than the Arapaho High School incident (which does not help them much due to its outcome), I do not remember any more of these school shootings happening. Of course, I cannot be sure because The Media is in collusion with the NRA to keep these School Shootings under wraps so both can keep profiteering from their unregulated sales of fully automatic assault atomic weapons with 30 round assault magazine clips….. yeah, that might be it.
Gabriel Mobley had long claimed self-defense in fatally shooting two unarmed men – one of whom he insisted appeared to be reaching for a weapon under his shirt – during a 2008 scuffle outside a North Miami-Dade restaurant.
On Thursday, a Miami-Dade appeals court agreed.
In a decision under Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground self-defense law, the court ordered the dismissal of Mobley’s murder charges, saying he acted reasonably because the slain men, though apparently unarmed, were the aggressors.
“The shooting at issue did not occur in a vacuum,” Third District Court of Appeals Judge Linda Ann Wells wrote in the 2-1 opinion. “Mobley did not shoot two innocent bystanders who just happened upon him on a sidewalk.”
The ruling, which for now clears the Opa-locka man of killing Jason Jesus Gonzalez and Rolando Carrazana, marks the first time the local appeals court has granted immunity to a defendant under the Stand Your Ground law.
One of the great things about the Gun Culture is the possibility to meet people who you only read about or see in some 30 second tidbit in the news. I met PMC’s and found them to be regular folk and not the barbaric, blood-thirsty mercenaries portrayed in the news and the halls of congress.
Erik Prince is the founder of the now extinct Blackwater and this book is his way to clear the smoke and bullshit created around the company and its people. Some in the Old Media are already classifying this book as a puff job but it rings loud as truthful for one reason: Whenever you deal with the State Department, rest assured you will be shafted faster than an 18-year-old in a Maximum Security Prison.
Some years ago, there was a big IDPA match at Blackwater HQ and I was not able to attend for family reasons. A dear friend brought be a Blackwater cap as souvenir and I just put it away for keepsake. After reading the book, I am even more determined to save it till I croak. What these people did is nothing short of amazing and a demonstration of what private business can do (better, faster and cheaper) than the Government.
But success breeds envy and ill will among some political rats and legal piranhas. Blackwater had to go down and it did…. but even so, they triumphed. I don’t want to give away anything, just buy the book and remember all the stuff said about them and compare it with the book.
Once upon a dark time, “sheep” were irrationally afraid for their lives, so the government in its profound wisdom, decided to make sure “sheep” had nothing to be afraid by registering & taking away the “fear.”
And the “fear” who frightened “sheep” faithfully followed the “law”:
And they lived happily ever after under the protection of a benevolent government:
So in Connecticut they were ordered to register their “assault weapons” because “sheep” were afraid and the “fear” followed the law:
And “sheep” cheered… not hard to figure how this tale is gonna end.
Three new graphic ads, fresh from Moms Twitter & Facebook efforts.
We have long suspected that Moms was never an independent movement but astroturf by the Ant- Gun Monsanto-Mad-Scientist Michael Bloomberg. I still would like to see Moms financials before coming to a full conclusion. Not long ago, Moms Demand announced they were “joining” forces, but this looks like they are surrendering control to Illegal Mayors Against Guns.
Basically the Moms were told to get in the kitchen and make lemonade.
