Voluntary Police Search for Hidden Weapons Program Cancelled [EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY]

Police Chief Norm Jacobs came under fire this week for his request that residents in his jurisdiction call into the police department to request a search for illegal or unknown firearms hiding in their homes.

After receiving nationwide attention for his program requesting citizens of Beloit, WI voluntarily allow police to search their homes for hidden weapons they were unaware of, the city has withdrawn the offer their chief of police made late last week, effective immediately. When questioned about the program this week, Jacobs told FoxNews.com “Most of the calls have been negative.” Further distancing himself from his original statement on the program, Jacobs stated the police would perform more of an ‘inspection’ than a search.

Would You Call the Police to Voluntarily Search Your Home for Guns, Please?

File this under mind-numbingly stupid:  The Beloit, WI Police Chief has a question for the citizens he took an oath to protect and serve: “If you would, please call the police and voluntarily have us search for guns you may not be aware are hiding in your home.”

How many residents do you think have taken him up on that offer?

In a stunning waste of time and effort, Police Chief Norm Jacobs announced that he is looking for residents to step up and help him eradicate gun violence in Beloit, WI. He expects this program to encourage citizens to view guns as a sort of infectious disease, with the police administering the vaccine in the form of removing firearms from their possession.

“Gun violence is as serious as the Ebola virus is being represented in the media, and we should fight it using the tools that we’ve learned from our health providers,” 
Jacob claims and hopes these voluntary searches will uncover guns residents didn’t know they have in their homes, even find guns that can be linked to unsolved crimes. 

With all that yummy goodness waiting at the end of a voluntary search, who wouldn’t call up the Beloit police and sign up for a search of their very own? Can you just imagine the poor 86 year old woman, so scared of guns and gun violence that she hastily contacts the police to search her home in the off chance a criminal has placed a weapon used in an act of violence under her mattress?! THE HORROR!

“Journalism” Hits a New Low

In a hilariously ignorant blog on SFGate this morning, Mark Morford claims that record Black Friday gun sales this year can be attributed to “scared white guys”. He then goes on to try to squeeze in every stereotype liberals hurl at gun owners.

Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 12.18.46 PM
Mr. Morford, who fancies himself an “Author, Columnist, Yoga teacher, Admirer of trees” is a shining example of why so many Americans feel journalism is dead. Instead of reporting facts, these so-called columnists take the liberty to spew their opinions on current events rather than using facts or concrete evidence to show people the reality of any number of topics Americans face. Guns included.

It is blatantly obvious he disagrees with the verdict of the Grand Jury in the Darren Wilson case. Rather than addressing the facts in that case, Mark Morford dutifully takes to his little column to pound out a manifesto declaring “scared white guys” to blame for not only Ferguson, but the steep rise in Black Friday gun sales. His article states:

According to at least one shop owner, a large percentage of gun buyers mentioned one singular event as a motivating factor for their purchase. Can you guess?  That’s right: Ferguson.

Not only do I find it interesting that he fails to disclose whether he spoke with this “shop owner” personally, but Morford also does not disclose the location of the store nor any additional information to support his headline, such as a statistical breakdown of last Friday’s gun sales based on race and sex. (which, of course, he doesn’t have)

Morford also claims that record high gun sales, which tripled the regular FBI background check requests from one per second to a record three requests per second, were a byproduct of his imaginary ‘scared white guy’ also being afraid of the “scary black president” as well. Apparently writing an all-out assault on white, middle-class America is what passes as “Notes & Errata” these days.

MSM Gives Democrat Rapist A Pass; Cyber Stalks Republican Woman For Facebook Comment

A Congressional Aide pleaded guilty to sexual assault yesterday. He drugged two women and raped them. This story is not dominating the news however, presumably because he is a Democrat.

In 2010, Donny Ray Williams, Jr was a staff director for the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee. He also raped two women that year. He gave one woman a drink laced with Ambien to weaken her before he attacked.

The mainstream media is instead focused on doxing and digging up dirt on a Republican stafffer for committing the crime of speaking of the Obama daughters on her Facebook page.

Obama’s Message To GOP Staffers: Challenge Me And You Will Be The Next Elizabeth Lauten

Chicago style politics are cut throat. A take no prisoners style of warfare. And after what happened to Elizabeth Lauten this week, it is easy to see who was behind it and why.

The White House obviously coordinated and shopped the story to the press. Lauten was guilty of having an opinion of the Obama daughters on her own personal Facebook page. For this, the left feels she not only needs to be pushed out of her job, but that she should also be threatened and have all of her personal information made pubic via doxing, including her address and mobile phone number, made available so anyone can stalk, harass, intimidate or injure her.

Basically, the White House has coordinated a very real war on this woman.

Promote What You Love

Ever hear the expression, “Stop knocking down what you don’t like and start lifting up what you love.” I say this all the time to liberals and anti-gun bullies who try to tear down my support of conservative policies or the Second Amendment. It’s the equivalent of asking my children, “don’t you have anything better to do?” when they start to bicker.

This rather small, misinformed group of people just loves to attack anyone who has a different opinion than they do, touting their love of diversity, claiming tolerance and global acceptance of everyone even as they attack. What they are looking to accomplish with their all out assault on those who dare to disagree with them is pretty clear; by polarizing and intimidating their opponent, they believe they can silence anyone with the audacity to challenge them.

I’ve seen them degrade women, throw ignorant stereotypes, sling disgusting language, belittle careers, assume a lack of education, social standing or psychological health limits their opponent’s ability to discuss facts or worthiness to discuss the topic at hand with any semblance of intelligence. I’ve seen death threats, the wish of gross bodily harm and even disturbing, heinous wishes toward their opponents loved ones, children and pets.
Alinsky would eat it up with a spoon.

While the juvenile insults and absurd assumptions can be entertaining in some instances, we’ve gotten to the point now where I feel the country is so divided that a more than generous portion of the other side is not only unwilling to discuss issues, but rather are unable to. I admit that I have been in that boat a time or two on a few issues. Abortion is a hot button topic for me for very personal reasons, so when pro-choice proponents argue my pro-life points, I have a hard time keeping my cool because it physically pains me to think of those sweet little babies being ripped to death. I know when to cut my losses and don’t continue to waste my time with people who I feel aren’t even listening to me. I know I can only pray they find clarity.

When debating political viewpoints, defending the second amendment or my right to carry, my pro-life beliefs or a number of other topics, I am finding more and more instances, on social media especially, of Cognitive Dissonance but more specifically Belief Disconfirmation Paradigm.  Belief Disconfirmation Paradigm occurs when an individual is presented with information that directly contradicts their beliefs. If the individual is unable to change their beliefs, the internal conflict experienced can result in the rejection or denial of the information, even if it is proven as factual and true. A person unable to resolve the conflict will seek others sharing a similar belief to restore the agreements of their beliefs. Sound familiar?

I have to admit, while batting these little mice around like a hungry cat can be fun for a bit, it serves no purpose in furthering our side’s cause. 100% of the time, it’s my opponent coming onto my post to attack me on whatever comment I’ve made, meme posted or article shared to provide facts to support my beliefs. Even with sports! For example, I have never gone on anyone else’s post rooting for their team to jab a “GO PACKERS!!” or “YOU SUCK!”, yet every week some unsportsmanlike dipshit will come on my posts to go full on fanatic for their team and start a fight with me. Note to other sports fans: I don’t care. When the Packers play the Seahawks and I post “Alright, it’s almost game time! Got meatballs in the crockpot and a beer in my hand, so GO PACK GO!!”, I cannot tell you how hard I roll my eyes when some moron pips up and writes something idiotic in response like “BEAR DOWN!!”. Worse yet, this happened yesterday:

People; you do not EVER insult a woman from Wisconsin about their knowledge of sports, much less make the horrendously ignorant statement that 100% of women don’t understand games can be played well without the team winning by score.

If you see a post and don’t have anything nice to say, how about you just don’t say anything at all? Didn’t everybody learn that in kindergarten? (obviously not)

So insults, team rivalries and glib assumptions aside, what if we chose to respectfully and joyfully promote things we believe in rather than being hateful and disrespectfully trying to tear down things and people we may not agree with? Obviously I’m not saying we should stop working to gain more support for causes we believe in, but just imagine if everyone would focus a little more effort on promoting their own causes?

This week, take a little extra time to search out some new facts to support what’s most important to you and share that with people. Find an article a day and post it to social media. Read up on what foundations, societies, or groups are posting. Search for recent news articles, find different websites, try to connect with others in your area who share in your beliefs. Pretend you know nothing about the subject and start from square one, then post all you find for others to read. Do this for a few weeks and see if it makes a difference in advancing your cause to others.

We can all stand to brush up a bit. At the very least, with the additional time spent on finding new facts and ways to promote your causes, think of how much better you’ll be prepared the next time the opposition challenges you. Now get at it!

Big SHOT Leno Caves to Anti-Gun Bullies’ Lies

So after being brainwashed with grossly incorrect information and all-out lies from anti-gun lobbying groups, Jay Leno has cancelled his emceeing role at the 2015 SHOT Show State of the Industry Dinner. The National Shooting Sports Foundation’s annual SHOT (Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade) Show takes place in Las Vegas, NV this January. After seeing record numbers at the 2014 show, NSSF expects next year’s attendance will break the record 67,000 attendees it saw last year.

Leno, who backed out on his commitment to emceeing the event after receiving pressure from anti-gun shills, personally called Po Murray, chairman of the Newtown Action Alliance, to assure her of his cancellation. The NSSF issued the following statement in response to his cancellation:

We are clearly disappointed by Jay Leno’s decision not to perform at the 2015 SHOT Show State of the Industry Dinner. He unilaterally cancelled his promised appearance due to pressure from the anti-gun lobby, which included false statements about our industry and its commitment to genuine firearms safety, which we attempted to personally correct with him, but to no avail.

We are not deterred by their publicity seeking nor are we unfamiliar with the bullying political tactics of the gun control groups that seem to have as little respect for the First Amendment as they continually demonstrate with regard to the Second Amendment.

We are proud of the many programs that we run that meaningfully contribute to public safety including our long standing Project ChildSafe and Don’t Lie for the Other Guy initiatives in addition to our members everyday work in compliance with comprehensive federal and state laws. We will not allow the lawful commerce in firearms nor our industry to be demonized and we will continue to speak out for the Second Amendment rights of the millions of law-abiding citizens who are our customers.

Despite Mr. Leno’s cancellation, we look forward to having our biggest and best State of the Industry Dinner to date with a performer that respects the contributions of our industry and the customers it supports.

I am utterly disgusted with Mr. Leno’s failure to listen to facts and blatantly disregard his obligation promised to the NSSF. I am a proud attendee of the SHOT show and look forward to the State of the Industry Dinner every year. What the NSSF does for gun safety, the Second Amendment and shooting sports is dignified and deserves respect. The work of Project Child Safe alone is something I tout regularly in my blogs and on the air with Cam & Co.

Have any of these groups ever bothered to meet with the NSSF and learn about what they really do? I doubt it, but when did people start making personal decisions based on what some people believe (and lies they spew) over facts and reality?

Are ‘Active Shooter’ Drills the New Normal in Schools?

Last week, I received a letter from our children’s elementary school, notifying parents of an “Intruder Alert” Drill. The letter outlined how the students would be taken through a hard lock down to ensure proper procedures are followed in the event the school’s security is breeched.

The letter read:

Dear Parents:

Your child’s safety is one of our top priorities.  For the past year, we have worked to create a crisis team, received training in NIMS (National Incident Management System), upgraded our security protocols and have been planning procedures for emergency situations.

On November 13, we will be conducting a school wide intruder drill, known as a hard lock down.  The teachers will explain to the students the procedures and expectations the day of the drill.  Basically, students need to remain out of sight and quiet during the duration of the drill.  Classroom doors will be locked by the teachers and children will follow the hard lock down protocol to practice proper procedure. Our Police Liaison Officer, District Safety Coordinator, Principal and Vice Principal will conduct the drill.  Students and staff will remain inside their classrooms until law enforcement officers clear the rooms and the school is deemed clear and safe.

We will continue to keep the safety of your child(ren) a high priority.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Principal or Vice Principal directly.

Sincerely,

Elementary School faculty and Local Police.

We were thankful the school sent this out to parents and we took the opportunity to talk to our daughters at dinner about the drill. Since they’re used to drills throughout the school year and because we also run drills at home (fire, tornado, etc), the girls were pretty unfazed at the whole thing. We talked about how good practices ensure they are prepared in the event of a real danger. Much of this gets through to my children since we were hit by an F2 tornado last year and thanks to having practiced our own tornado drill many times, all five of us were able to get downstairs when the first tree hit my daughter’s room shortly before 2am. They know that practicing proper procedures prepares you to ensure your safety in the event of a real emergency.
