THE RIGHT TO DEFEND YOURSELF!

THE RIGHT TO DEFEND YOURSELF!

By Don Bekeleski

The right to defend one’s self has been law for a very long time. How many Marshall Dillon’s have we watched? In the program Gunsmoke there were many shootouts the Marshall had to deal with. The first thing he would do is look around and ask, “Did anyone see what happened”? If there were witnesses to the shooting 90 percent of the time one of them would say, “The other guy drew first Marshal”! That would immediately let Marshal Dillon know that the standing man shot in self –defense.

3 Cops Behaving Badly on Video

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 17:56:15 +0000

To all law enforcement officers, local and federal, smartphones with video capability are not a fad; they are here to stay. And phones are everywhere. Kids in elementary school have them, grandparents have them, everyone has a phone ready to record what is happening around them. When people see a commotion, they are going to stop and record it—as they should. Recently, a video has surfaced showing a U.S. Marshal running after a female citizen, grabbing her in an extremely aggressive manner and taking her phone. He slammed the phone onto the concrete, stomped on it, and said, “There’s your phone.”...

Kamala Harris: “Illegal Immigrants not Criminals”

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 18:47:29 +0000

California’s Kamala Harris is running for the United States Senate.  Why is this relevant to guns? Well, Harris is one of the strongest proponents of gun control in the State of California as Attorney General. Her gun control stance would turn law-abiding citizens into criminals. Harris has been tasked with enforcing the law in California and she has been hyper focused on gun owners. Because of this, she has neglected other areas of law enforcement, especially illegal immigrants. Breibart News reported an interesting discovery about Harris and her views of illegal immigrants. Breibart News writes, “It does seem that Harris, declared...
