Cop Granted Immunity Despite Video of Him Shooting Little Girl, While Trying to Kill Small Dog

Wichita, KS — Last year, a cop was fired after he shot a little girl inside her own home while trying to kill her dog. Showing that they are willing to hold their own accountable, the officer was charged with felony aggravated battery the following March. However, this month, TFTP has learned that a Wichita judge ruled the cop is immune from criminal prosecution and can’t be sued.

Judge Kevin O’Connor issued his ruling last month on the case of officer Dexter Betts. However, it was not made public until this month. After the ruling, according to the Wichita Eagle, the Sedgwick County district attorney’s office filed a notice of appeal.

Lock, Stock, & Barrel: Why are Americans Hoarding Guns & Ammo Amid COVID-19 Pandemic?

The coronavirus outbreak has not only led to empty shelves in US grocery stores but has also boosted gun and ammo sales across the country. American observers have given explanations about the possible roots of the trend and its potential consequences.

On 17 March, an online ammunition store Ammo.com reported an unprecedented increase in bullet sales starting in February 2020 saying that it "directly correlates" with the rise of COVID-19 and its spread across the country.

Ammo is not the only store spotting a massive spike in firearms demand: Adventure Outdoors has signalled that its sales are up 400% so far this year with shotguns, AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, and 9mm handguns being hot sellers. Tactical gear retailer Bulletproof Zone has said its sales had leaped 100%, while an arms shop owner in Petaluma, California, revealed in an interview with KTVU FOX 2 that many buyers are acquiring guns for the first time.

Disabled Woman Shoots, Kills Alleged Home Invader

A disabled woman in Houston, Texas, shot and killed an alleged home invader Saturday afternoon just before 3 p.m.

KHOU reports that the woman was home alone when a 17-year-old and 18-year-old allegedly broke out a window, which allowed them to reach inside and unlock the exterior door. The 18-year-old allegedly led the way into the apartment thereafter and, because he was first in the door, ended up being the one who was shot.

COVID-19 Data Study: Ammunition Sales Continue to Soar in Response to Coronavirus Panic

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads across the United States, its impact can be seen in every community. Businesses and schools are closed, the market is volatile, and store shelves are empty as the American public scrambles to prepare for the worldwide pandemic and social distancing prescribed by the WHO and CDC.

While people stockpile toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and pantry essentials, they’re also purchasing ammunition at an unprecedented rate. Here at Ammo.com, we’ve seen a significant growth in sales that directly correlates with the rise of COVID-19 and its spread across the country. As we mentioned in a press release on March 6, 2020, we first noticed a 54% sales increase on February 23, as the search term “coronavirus” started to gain traction, according to Google Trends.

Illinois Mayor May Ban Guns, Firearms Sales Over Coronavirus Panic

An Illinois mayor has signed an executive order taking up wide-ranging emergency powers that she claims gives her the authority to halt the sale of all firearms and ammunition. The declaration is being framed as a response to the Chinese coronavirus.

Champaign, Illinois Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen signed the declaration Friday morning. The executive order declares a state of emergency in the city, and gives the mayor a wide set of powers to use during the period. The declaration touches upon a wide range of commercial and civic activity as liable to the mayor’s shutdown.

The document uses the phrasing of giving the mayor power to “Order the discontinuance of selling, distributing, dispensing or giving away of explosives or explosive agents, firearms or ammunition of any character whatsoever.”

Remembering The Alamo

Also remember Goliad where 400 Texicans were massacred after surrendering by Santa Ana and the Mexican Army!

Tomorrow, March 6, marks the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo outside of San Antonio, Texas, back in 1836. This event is so significant in my mind that I always try to devote a column that honors the heroism of these men on or around the anniversary of the occasion.

For 13 days, 189 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna’s seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew that they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this generation of spoiled Americans.

HAWAII LAWMAKERS PUSH SEVERE AMMO RESTRICTIONS

SOURCE: AMMO LAND
In the last year, gun owners across the U.S. have watched in horror as California has rolled out its byzantine and unworkable ammunition restrictions. Since July 1, 2019, gun owners in the Golden State have been required to undergo a background check each time they purchase ammunition. The program has been a disaster. In December, the Sacramento Bee reported that tens of thousands of law-abiding Californians have been improperly denied ammunition purchases under the program, while only 101 were prohibited persons who were rejected. According to the report, “[b]etween July 1 and November, nearly one in every five ammunition purchases was rejected by the California Department of Justice.”

Not to be outdone, California’s neighbor to the left is seeking to outdo the Golden State tyrants with an even more intrusive scheme to harass law-abiding gun owners and ammunition buyers.

In late January, Hawaii lawmakers introduced HB 2736.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF something can be mucked up for Hawaii's citizens in amazing and startling ways, count on the Hawaii Legislature to do just that.

And somewhere, in the richly populated tales of graft, corruption, and massive cost over-runs in the State, one only has to look at Hawaii's "Light Rail to No Where" to understand the degree to which Hawaii lawmakers, have collectively, lost their minds.

Bloomberg Asked About Hypocrisy of Armed Security, Says He’s Wealthy & Can Afford It

2020 Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg was asked if his life matters more than that of the average citizen during a Fox News town hall on Monday evening. In short, “Mini Mike” seemingly dodged the question and said he faced more threats than others due to being wealthy and the former mayor of New York City.

In other words, yes, Mike’s life is more valuable and deserves to be safeguarded by retired police officers because he has the ability to pay for his detail. But you really shouldn’t be able to defend yourself even though you can afford a firearm.

Women have the “right” to terminate the human life in their womb right up until birth, and then the doctor and nurses present have the “right” (maybe even obligation) to allow the baby, once delivered from a botched abortion, to die! That is the “right” of “privacy” according to the left that women have. But, YOU don’t have the right to privacy of your property and the ability to defend yourself against a wave of criminals being unleashed upon Americans – many of whom hate America, don’t speak the language and have no comprehension or knowledge of our laws, culture or history, but they can get their hands on a gun and not be arrested if they are charged with a crime in regard to that gun possession.

American Gun Ownership: The Positive Impacts of Law-Abiding Citizens Owning Firearms

It’s no secret that mainstream press coverage of gun ownership in the United States tends to be in favor of gun control – especially when those reporting on the topic are not firearm owners themselves. Journalists focus on how many people are killed by guns, how many children get their hands on improperly stored firearms, and how many deranged individuals go on shooting sprees.

This anti-gun news bias is widespread among the “urban elite” who have very little personal experience with guns and yet write for influential newspapers like The New York Times, Washington Post, etc. Despite this bias, law-abiding private citizens owning guns does have positive impacts on American society that often go unreported – many of which are significant.

EXCLUSIVE: Innocent Father Branded Domestic Terrorist for Supporting Constitution

We first brought you the story of Joshua Martinez in 2017, when he was arrested for refusing to give his age to police on a Nevada courthouse steps. He was attempting to enter the Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse, without having to identify himself.

He wanted to attend the Cliven Bundy court case without giving up who he is and why he was there, something he believed was a clear violation of his constitutional rights. Martinez was denied entry. Later, in an attempt to sue the U.S. Marshals for disallowing him entry into the Nevada court, he returned to the court to identify the specific Marshals who denied him entry. That action turned out to be a mistake as he was promptly arrested.

US Patrol Turned Back at Syrian Army Checkpoint. US Officer: “We Are Here to Bring Peace Just Like the Russians”

More footage from the February 12 standoff between a US patrol and Syrian villagers and soldiers in the village of Khirbet Amo in northeastern Syria. The standoff eventually resulted in

American reinforcements arriving in 5 additional vehicles,
the Russians arriving on the scene to try to calm things down,
a molotov cocktail being thrown at one of the American vehicles,
the Americans killing one of the villagers,
the Syrians opening rifle fire on armored US vehicles,
F-16s circling overhead, firing flares from a low altitude,
and the Americans in the end nonetheless retreating and going back to base.

The exchange between the US commander and a Syrian officer through an Iraqi translator the Americans have with them:

This was too much for the cowardly, cheaply paid Trump regime forces, who then in full chickensh*t character, unleashed smoke bombs to blind the locals before shooting into the crowd, with live ammunition.

VIRGINIA HOUSE PASSES DRACONIAN "ASSAULT WEAPONS" BAN, by Mac Slavo, shtfplan.com

The House of Representatives in the state of Virginia is quickly ramming liberal legislation down the throats of innocent people. They have passed an “assault weapons” ban, which would criminalize thousands of people who haven’t committed a crime.

On Tuesday, Democrats continued their quest to disarm the civilians and advocate for a series of gun control measures in what has become the epicenter of the nationwide gun debate.

Self-Defense Is A Basic Human Right: A Website That ENDS The Gun Control Debate For Good

The 51-48 vote in the House of Delegates moves H.B. 961 (the assault weapons ban) to the state Senate. Passage among senators could be in jeopardy, however, as Democrats only have a two-seat majority, meaning they can only afford to lose one vote should all the Republicans oppose the bill. But don’t assume it’s passage won’t happen. Taking away guns is essential for tyranny. But the propaganda is all about safety:

The Democrats are risking it all with this legislation; November elections in Virginia are about to "get interesting", and very quickly.

AZ Democrat Senators: Register or Surrender ‘Assault Weapons’

Democrats in the Arizona Senate are pushing legislation that requires “assault weapons” throughout the state to be registered or surrendered.

The legislation, SB 1625, also provides the third option of rendering the firearm inoperable.

Moreover, the text of SB 1625 makes clear that the legislation ends not simply the ownership of “assault weapons,” but the manufacture of said firearms as well. An exception for manufacturing is provided for those making guns for police or military.

Well, passage of that legislation oughta do wonders for the employment numbers in Prescott (Sturm- Ruger).

At the most recent Big Sandy Shoot, big gun expert Robert Bigando gave us a tour of the nearly two dozen big guns on display at the event.

The Big Sandy Shoot is a biannual event that takes place near Wikieup, Arizona, in April and October of each year. The event attracts hundreds of shooters, machine guns and large caliber guns. The most recent shoot was held from October 20 to 22, 2017. It saw the largest turn out of big guns in the event's 30 year history. This included the largest civilian owned gun - the 152mm Russian D20 howitzer.

VIRGINIA CONGRESS CONTINUES GUN CONTROL FRENZY WITH 9 MORE BILLS

SOURCE: DAISY LUTHER
Despite a massive and peaceful turnout on the Lobby Day rally on January 20th, the Virginia State Congress remained totally unfazed by what the people wanted and proceeded to advance numerous unconstitutional gun laws over the following week.

While everyone has been focused on the Wuhan coronavirus, state lawmakers have been quietly eroding gun rights.

“RED FLAG” GUN LAW PASSED
Proving they don’t care at all about the opinions of the people of Virginia, the state’s Senate passed a “red flag” gun law only two days later. Here’s the summary of SB240.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all those Virginians who find such legislation offensive, and flying in the face of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of this country, please find out which Virginia legislators are supporting this legislation, and if they (allegedly) represent you, call their offices in a firm, but polite tone, and let them know if they continue along this path, that they will be voted out of office in the next election cycle with great enthusiasm, never to return to even a position as a public dog-catcher in that state.

Deadly Distractions: Laying the Groundwork for the Next Civil War

And so it continues.

This impeachment fiasco is merely the latest in a never-ending series of distractions, distortions, and political theater aimed at diverting the public’s attention from the sinister advances of the American Police State.

Don’t allow yourselves to be distracted, diverted or mesmerized by the cheap theater tricks.

This impeachment spectacle is Shakespearean in its scope: full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Nothing is the key word here.

Trump needs to denounce these traitors, specifically by name, and have the appropriate law enforcement agencies investigate them.

When Trump speaks in generalities like, ‘The Democrats want your guns,’ it’s only to make him look good to his USA! USA! crowd.

True causes of the Uncivil War: Understanding the Morrill Tariff

By Mike Scruggs

Most Americans believe the U. S. “Civil War” was over slavery. They have to an enormous degree been miseducated. The means and timing of handling the slavery question were at issue, although not in the overly simplified moral sense that lives in postwar and modern propaganda. But had there been no Morrill Tariff there might never have been a war. The conflict that cost of the lives of 650,000 Union and Confederate soldiers and perhaps as many as 50,000 Southern civilians and impoverished many millions for generations might never have been.

A smoldering issue of unjust taxation that enriched Northern manufacturing states and exploited the agricultural South was fanned to a furious blaze in 1860. It was the Morrill Tariff that stirred the smoldering embers of regional mistrust and ignited the fires of Secession in the South. This precipitated a Northern reaction and call to arms that would engulf the nation in the flames of war for four years.

Black gun owners who turned out for Monday’s Second Amendment rally outside the Virginia capitol building Monday undermined attempts to tar the event as “white supremacist” with their presence alone.

In one clip that has gone viral online, an unidentified man wearing a “Gun Saves Lives” sticker explains why he joined the protest, which was organized in opposition to sweeping gun control measures that could be enacted next week by Virginia’s Democratic-controlled government.
