The Media are a Bunch of Idiots (from


Jon Stewart got it wrong. Stephen Colbert got it wrong. Every major media outlet talking about “guns in bars” got it 100% wrong.

You can’t carry a firearm into a bar in Tennessee. Period. It’s simply a lie.

Yakima homicide justified

Originally reported on January 22, 2009 over at

YAKIMA — A robbery suspect was shot dead by an armed civilian late Monday, the first incident of justifiable homicide city police said they could recall in recent memory.

Franklin McWain, 33, died at a hospital from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest. An autopsy was performed Tuesday.

A police news release said the shooting occurred in the 800 block of North Second Street about 11 p.m. Monday.

According to the release, a 27-year-old Yakima man told officers he was waiting outside a residence for a friend when he was approached by McWain.

The man, identified as Michael Valadez, 27, said McWain struck him on the head with a stick and demanded money. Valadez told police he was struck several more times before firing two shots at McWain. Valadez had a valid concealed weapons permit.

Valadez ran from the area and flagged down a passing police officer. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of a head wound and a broken left arm.

The release said police found evidence at the scene that backed up the man’s story.

He has not been charged with a crime. The case is being referred to the Yakima County prosecutor.

McWain was a longtime Yakima resident whose criminal history included six felonies, police said.

Court records show he was found guilty of charges related to eluding, theft and drugs, among other offenses.

Supreme Court Gun Ruling Imminent, and I Can’t Sleep

It’s only a matter of hours until the most anticipated Supreme Court ruling we’ve seen in years hits the shelves. I’m tired, yet I’ve not yet slept tonight as I’ve been too worked up over this ruling. Whatever happens, one thing is certain: WE MUST STAND FOR OUR RIGHTS! There is no reason why we, the majority, should be losing ground on issues that are most dear to us in the pursuit of our freedom and happiness. What are you doing to protect your God Given rights? Whatever it is, make sure it’s big enough to count. Certainly the attitude of our opponents, the gun grabbing left, will not relent until they have their way.

This is why we must use all of our strength to stand up and declare that this is America. Our country was founded by men and women who desired freedom, happiness, and rule of fair law above all else, even life. I encourage all of you who are reading this to do something today. Speak with your family on the importance of our constitution, make a post on your blog, obtain a Concealed Weapons Permit. Do something which will affect those around you, because until you do, the left will be heard, loud and clear.

So, no matter what happens this morning in the Supreme Court ruling (I believe strongly that it will be favorable based on the arguments), remember that nothing is permanent. If we want to keep our freedoms, we must protect them. Our forebears protected theirs and our freedoms with their lives. What would you give up to protect the same?

Concealed permit holder stops bank robbery (VIDEO Link)

CANTON TOWNSHIP, MICH — A bank robbery attempt was foiled when Nabil Fawzi, an upstanding citizen took action and used his concealed handgun to stop the would be robber.

54-year-old Joseph Webster from Washtenaw County had entered the bank and quietly approached the teller window. He said nothing, but handed the teller a note telling her that he had a bomb strapped to himself. The teller hit the silent alarm and began stuffing a sack with $1 bills when Webster insisted she give him “bands of 50s and 100s.”

Little did Webster know that Fawzi, who had previously served in the Lebanese army for six years, was prepared for just such an occasion. After determining that the situation was safe, Fawzi pulled his concealed firearm–which he had a permit to carry–and cooly told the thief “You’re not going to rob this bank.” When Webster replied that he had a bomb, Fawzi merely responded, “I don’t care. You are not robbing this bank today!”

Fawzi searched the suspect for a weapon, then led him to a seat nearby, and waited for the police to arrive.

Fawzi has been hailed as a hero by locals in the town.
