SEPTA police to get new service weapons after Sig pistol accidentally fires



Quote
The Philadelphia Police Department is investigating an incident in which a SEPTA police officer’s service weapon fired without manipulation while holstered.

The incident occurred on August 26 during rush hour at Suburban Station while the officer and his partner were on patrol, according to a statement prepared by SEPTA. As the officers were exiting a SEPTA police cart they both “heard a loud bang” then smelled discharged gun powder. One of the officers found that his Sig Sauer P320, SEPTA police’s standard service weapon, discharged while secured in his thigh holster.

Virginia sheriff vows to deputize residents in response to expected gun control legislation from state Democratic lawmakers


Quote
A Virginia sheriff has vowed to deputize residents in his county if the new Democratic-led legislature enacts gun control measures.

Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins made the vow during a Board of Supervisors meeting last week in which the panel unanimously agreed to declare the county a Second Amendment Constitutional County.

“Every Sheriff and Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia will see the consequences if our General Assembly passes further unnecessary gun restrictions,” Jenkins wrote on Facebook before the meeting.

Missouri mom defends son beating up school bully in viral post: 'Problem solved'




Quote
Davis said that her son had suffered bullying from the unidentified student for years and, despite repeated attempts to get the school to do something about it, nothing happened.

“When this kid has constantly threatened to beat Drew up along with several of his friends, the school did nothing,” Davis said. “When this kid followed Drew down the hall threatening him and making fun of him AND it was all captured on video, the school did nothing.”

The mother said the student’s bullying only got worse over time, including sending her son threats on social media, voicemails and text messages. Still, she said, the school did nothing.

FIREARM ACCESSORIES / WTS in B/CS - Like New Leather holster for PPQ/P99
« on: December 08, 2019, 10:46:37 AM »
Forsale in College Station area (but, will ship if you are not local)....

One Craft leather holster. It will fit the 9mm PPQ or P99 A/S.

OWB, brown leather (see photos below). The holster is basically new - I only used it a few times. It probably still needs some break in.

I replaced it with another Craft holster that has a retention strap. So, I have not been using this one.



The holster is very well made - Craft Holsters are well known. Holster was made in Italy.

$40 + $4 shipping. The first "I'll take it" with an exchange of information gets it! No shipping charge if local pickup.

Please email me at: goldfishpanda@Hotmail.com

In Virginia, and elsewhere, gun supporters prepare to defy new laws



Quote
AMELIA COURTHOUSE, Va. —Families, church groups, hunt clubs and neighbors began arriving two hours early, with hundreds spilling out of the little courthouse and down the hill to the street in the chilly night air.

They were here to demand that the Board of Supervisors declare Amelia County a “Second Amendment sanctuary” where officials will refuse to enforce any new restrictions on gun ownership.

Vote to make Montgomery County Gun Sanctuary County passes


Quote
"...the Montgomery County, Texas Government will not authorize or appropriate government resources for the purpose of enforcing or assisting in the enforcement of any element of such acts, laws, orders, mandates, rules or regulations, that infringe on the right by the people to keep and bear arms."

The resolution has no force in law. It's a statement of political policy, but Riley says it's still important.

LASIK eye surgery needs to stop, former FDA adviser says: Report[/B]




Quote
Even though LASIK has been around for 20 years in the U.S., one former FDA adviser has said the procedure should be taken off the market.

Dr. Morris Waxler originally voted to approve the eye surgery, but he’s changed his mind.

"Essentially we ignored the data on vision distortions that persisted for years," the retired FDA adviser told CBS News.

"I re-examined the documentation … and I said, 'Wow this is not good,'" he added.

So sad. I am a college graduate - but my 7th grade son came home with some geometry homework last night... And, there were 4 problems throughout the entire math, homework worksheet that he could not solve...

He asked me for help. I spent 30 minutes on it, and even looked up things on the Internet...

I could not help him. I just finished emailing the teacher this morning - to see if he could assist my son. I explained that I tried to help him, but could not....

Victim uses battle ax to fend off home invader


Quote
Whatever his reason was for kicking in the door, he probably was not expecting to run into a guy who spends his weekend battling other people with swords and axes.

Ball says he is glad he spent a lot of time practicing with that ax.

Pregnant Florida woman uses AR-15 to fend off burglars attacking her family

A Florida woman who was eight-months pregnant and came out wielding an AR-15 rifle reportedly saved her husband and pre-teen daughter last week from a pair of violent intruders who'd broken into the family's home -- with the gun-toting matriarch fatally striking one of the men, who was later found dead in a nearby ditch.

Permitless gun carry in Oklahoma takes effect



Quote
A "constitutional carry" gun law in Oklahoma took effect Friday. Also known as permitless carry, the law lets some Oklahomans carry a firearm in public without a license.

Most Oklahomans 21 and older can now carry concealed or unconcealed firearms without having gone through a background check or training requirements, with exceptions for those illegally in the country or who have been convicted of certain crimes.

Negligent Discharge: Man Shoots Himself While Hiking Up His Pants at the Range



Quote
You can plainly see him unholster his handgun, insert a magazine, then rack the slide making it ready. That’s when he made the mistake.

Watch the video a couple of times. Once his handgun is loaded and hot, he appears to then reach back with both hands and try to hike up his sagging pants.
