    I used to work for Harris Corp. I bet I could build something with the Stingray’s capabilities for a couple hundred dollars. Maybe I should build them and give them away for use by citizens against corrupt & criminal LEAs, TLAs, and government bureaucrats/politicians.

    Like the story of the Panopticon, make the power universal and available to everyone.

    “Please tell me since when do we have to raise awareness about the most important founding document in the creation of this country?”

    Since a large portion of the population has forgotten or never learned about it in any detail. Just like people on the street can’t tell you who any of their representatives names are, or even who the VPOTUS is.

    That’s the reality. Now we have to deal with it. You don’t educate and convince with armed confrontations, fear, and vitriol when none of that is necessary.

    “Why is the default to challenge the person exercising their rights and not the persons ignorant of those rights?”

    Because, sadly, the people ignorant of their and other’s rights vastly outnumber those who do know and understand. How do you think the US has gotten to the sorry state it’s in now? That’s why the education is necessary. Decades of anti-gun and anti-Constitutional/civil rights propaganda and indoctrination must be undone.

    I live in the Kalamazoo area. First, let me say that I’m pleasantly surprised that KPS handled this guy without shooting him and they deserve some kudos for that. It would have turned out much more tragically in a lot of other places.

    Second, *IF* the story details about what he was saying about violence & revolution are accurate, then this was a prime example of how NOT to exercise your open-carry Second Amendment rights. You’re not supposed to be there to force confrontation and escalate tensions.

    He should have had and kept the rifle slung at his back from the instant he walked outside with it. When officers contacted him, he should have smiled and greeted them, and calmly explained his purpose in exercising his rights peacefully and lawfully. Under those conditions, the officers may have not even asked him to disarm, seeing he was calm, rational, reasonable, and cognizant of the laws and his responsibilities.

    Those criticizing the man for carrying a rifle instead of a pistol forget that not everybody can afford both, and that may be the only firearm he owns. Does he lose his ability to exercise his rights because he can’t afford a second firearm (pistol) in order to quell hoplophobes and power hungry police/government bureaucrats and politicians? What about areas where open-carry is only allowed for long guns and not pistols?

    NRA and others need to start running regional and national educational PSAs about the Second Amendment and open/concealed-carry.

    You could probably join a hair-metal band as a drummer, however!

    Silver linings, always silver linings! ;)

    (btw, that’s ‘twirl” not “swirl”. The story/editors got it wrong, so not your bad)

    One can infer distance from a transmitter by the determining the time it takes for a signal to make the trip.

    Therefor, it should be trivial to design a phone app that does this measurement and tells you if the cell tower you’re using is 2 miles away, 1 mile away, or within a few hundred yards, and any sudden changes in cell-tower distance.

    This distance data would provide a very strong indicator on whether or not your phone has been “captured” by a Stingray device. It would also be nearly impossible for this data to be faked, as it’s based on basic physics (the time it takes for radio signals to cover a set distance).

    Note: I used to work for Harris Corp.

    Right after Obumbler and his entire re-election fund-raising operation for all those tens of millions in bundled foreign campaign donations.

    And all those in the Dept. of (In)Justice and the Federal Election (corruption) Commission who refuse to investigate or prosecute such blatantly illegal and immoral acts for purely partisan political motives.

    After all that changes, maybe we’ll talk about Dinesh.

    Here’s an idea.

    Power companies: Achieve the 30% reduction in large part by cutting power to US Federal buildings and facilities. Force EPA and other Federal agencies/depts/etc workers back to using pencil & paper by candlelight.

    Another way is for power companies to publicly announce that due to Obama’s decree from on-high, there will be no electricity available at all for one-third of the year, and ask Obama publicly which 4 months out of the year he would prefer to have the blackouts in.

    Sure, you have the right to free speech, but openly stating conservative views in public disturbs and frightens many people. It’s best to keep such speech concealed. Openly stating conservative beliefs causes more harm than keeping ones’ conservative views to oneself in public.

    Sure, you have the right to freedom of religion, but openly espousing Christian beliefs harms the Christian religion and alarms people.

    See the problem with your 2A position yet?

    This Pope is nothing but a political apparatchik and an insult to Jesus and Christianity.

    The Roman Catholic Church?

    It’s dead, Jim.

    It’s been co-opted by Satan.

    @ Chronic

    If you tell them, that pretty much defeats the whole point of recording them in the first place. They will then simply make sure that any violations of your civil rights are hidden from the camera and/or out of earshot of the audio recording device.

    Or, they’ll simply take your phone/camera and dispose of it, and claim you had no such device in your possession when you were arrested/detained/beaten/killed.

    That’s just as logical as cops at a stake-out being required to notify the subject(s) under surveillance of their presence.

  • [1] May 3, 2014 at 10:02pm

    How about tweeting the arresting officers’ photos, names, and home addresses?

    Oh wait, that’s different?

    Yeah. One law for thee, another for me.

    Don’t the officer’s neighbors and members of the community have a right to know what the servants they pay do in their name?

    What, the officers haven’t committed a crime, you say? How do you know?

    Until a judge & jury of their peers has so judged, neither have the suspects arrested.

    Since when was being merely *accused* of a crime a license for the government to attempt to ruin someone’s life without any due process and in any manner they please?

    What country is this I find myself in? It certainly isn’t the America where the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land.

    GaryD9088, keep in mind the store owner appears to be in his 50′s or even older. Vietnam-era, at least. Maybe even before ‘Nam. Training has changed, and plus he probably hasn’t trained in longer than many commenting here have been alive.

    I’d like to see those criticizing his “style” do as well against a large opponent apparently in his 20s when they’re 50 or 60 years old. Former military or not.

    Save the armchair-bada$$ criticisms. It doesn’t speak well to one’s character. Be glad he took care of business and that nobody was killed, and move on.

  • April 14, 2014 at 2:01pm

    Yeah, you can tell that theblaze.com is NOT one of Glenn’s priorities.

    It feels like a half-hearted side-project done out of some feeling that they’re obligated to have a website/forum and a desire to monetize GB’s web audience for advertising revenue.

    C’mon Blaze staff!

    Either it’s important enough to do well and do right, or just please go home and let us all not waste our time.

    Hey, I’ve been telling folks that Progressives were full of gas for ages!

    Cruel & callous vindication, indeed!!

    This is how they see you and I in their world-view. Lab rats. Experimental monkeys. Things. Objects.

    To Progressives, “common” people are animals and even less than animals, to be treated and used however they see fit with no consideration given at all to “we the animals”‘ wellbeing, happiness, dreams, desires, or needs.

    The Progressives promise free healthcare, a guaranteed income, housing, and food.

    So do PRISONS!!

    The one being constructed by the Progressives (and nearly complete) here in the US simply substitutes laws & regulations that blow right past, over, under, around, and through the Constitution for iron bars. The result is identical, just a matter of scale. It’s like the old movie “Escape From NY”, only encompassing the entire country. Whenever they step out of their concrete-and-steel towers to interact with a person, it’s with a fully-militarized strike team, often complete with armored vehicle(s) and air cover.

    Athens, TN!

    Snipers surrounding an old rancher’s home?

    We need patriot-snipers set up around Washington, D.C. and Alexandria, VA.

    You know…where the *REAL* dangerous criminals are.

    Holder has no choice but to fight to the end.

    He knows perfectly well what happened to Vince Foster and Michael Hastings.

    Heck, Holder may well have been deeply involved in both.

    In either case, he knows that if it even looks slightly like he might cave and/or name names, his life expectancy would be less than that of a fruit fly.

    It’s not just the White House but also happens in the senate and house. Female staffers doing similar jobs to men are paid less. This is a glaring case of glass houses and stones.

    Seems like these jackwagons in the Federal government think they have a lot of stones.

    I think it’s time the American people removed their stones.

    Blaze Radio streaming will not work unless you set your browser to share location data and more. It’s as privacy-invasive as a TSA screening, maybe more, as they can learn more about a person through their browsing habits than a junk-grope. As a consequence I will no longer be listening to GB Radio program since our local radio does not carry GB and my only alternative has been commercialized by Mercury/GB into a privacy-raping service.

    Ya know, it might not be a bad idea for 10 or 20 thousand patriots with scoped rifles to take a little vacation out to the Bundy ranch.

    It’s funny how cooperative and understanding authorities suddenly become when faced with a couple of divisions of infantry willing to fight to the last man.

    As the father of an LEO, I take umbrage regarding your post. My son puts his life on the line to protect others, maybe you or your family. Why don’t YOU put on that uniform and then see life through a new pair of glasses. May God Bless you.

    If your LEO son acts like these thugs, you need to have a space cleared on your fireplace mantle for an urn and a folded flag.
