Bad guy kicks in the back door of a house...

...and finds the home owner on the other side of the door. The home owner was able to get his gun and fire a shot. The bad guy ran away.

Chick Little was wrong again.

In the year of concealed carry permits in Illinois, there have only been a couple incidents involving legal gun owners that have created headlines. In July, a concealed-carry permit holder in Crestwood tried shooting at a fleeing armed robber, hurting no one but forcing a police officer to duck for cover. In Chicago a member of the military who had a concealed carry permit shot and wounded an armed man who fired into a crowd on Chicago's Far South Side.

Nevertheless, Hayes said he stopped opposing the concealed carry law when he realized that the past year has not resulted in the level of violence some anticipated.

In his opinion, the past year is a good indicator that the current law works well in Illinois: "I'm confident in this system; that's not to say occasionally someone who shouldn't have a gun won't have a gun."

They always warn of blood in the streets because of increased gun ownership or concealed carry. Strange how it never comes to pass.

Here is a petition we can all get behind.

To have Joshua Horwitz and Ladd Everitt removed from CSGV

Shop at Krogers

Here's why.
That was a group called Moms Demand Action. They were opposed to the fact that our policy is to adhere to the local gun laws. If the local gun laws are to allow open carry, we’ll certainly allow customers to do that based on what the local laws are. We don’t believe it’s up to us to legislate what the local gun control laws should be. It’s up to the local legislators to decide to do that. So we follow local laws [and] we ask our customers to be respectful to the other people they are shopping with. And we really haven’t had any issues inside of our stores as a result of that. - Kroger CFO Michael Schlotman
Also giving them your custom rewards a friend and thumbs your nose at an enemy. That's a win win.

The Science is Settled...Not.

Michael Mann and Stefan Rahmstorf claim the Gulf Stream is slowing due to Greenland ice melt, except reality says otherwise

Of course, Rahmstorf and Mann don’t list Rossby’s study in their references, nor seem to use the “highly accurate” ADCP data. Instead they use a model along with [proxies, reconstructions, and] the highly interpolated GISS data to come to the conclusions they want. So, it isn’t surprising they are chasing phantoms in their study.

It was definitely working.

A School Resource Officer negligently discharged his weapon inside the school building.The departmental flack said,
“His gun was wet, and he went back into his office and felt it would be an opportune time to clean it and make sure it was working,”

It's what they do.

FBI Shaped Report To Suggest Increase In Mass Shootings, When They’d Actually Been HALVED
Don't look surprised. The FBI has been a political organization since it's inception. This is nothing new. Obama has simply abandoned all pretense. He'll use whatever resources he has to get his way, and the FBI is just another resource.
