    I stand corrected – sounded more like at least 50 rounds and half dozen flash bangs – that’s crazy – thermal imaging taken from outside should have told them exactly where he was before they went in. I understand they may have needed to move in before they were “ready” because of something going on inside, but that was waaaay too much lead flying around for taking down one terrorist.

    What the H E L L? One suspect – more than enough time for them to call in their “elite” counter-terrorist swat team – and they seem to fire off at least 30 rounds in that small place????? A professional team would have limited that to 3 shots by the first or second man in the door – hitting the main target only. How many were killed by friendly fire? There were pictures of him in the window earlier in the day – do they not have any snipers around? I’m all for being rescued – but when the police come in laying down suppressive fire and lead is flying everywhere, innocent people are going to die for no good reason other than piss-pour professionalism by the trigger-happy police.

    Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet – more often than not, you won’t like the results.

    Time for an IRS audit to see if she properly claimed those tips as income on her tax return!!!!!

    Parents and their daughters – remember, it may not just be the guy “buying” the drink. It could also be the bartender “making” the drink. Most of these college town bartenders are also college juniors or seniors. They have buddies and roommates. One of those “buddies” might tip off his bartender roommate to make a “strong” drink for a girl – and in goes the date rape drug by the bartender. I’ve actually heard of this happening twice – the girl was “being careful” and got the drink directly from the bartender and it never left her hand – but still was drugged. In one instance a local bartender was busted about 3 months later with the date rape drugs in his appartment.

    Dear Blaze staff – can you please follow up with the Chi-O sorority (or Total Frat Move) and find out if the sorority did, indeed, get a pledge class with “no ninjas”? Seems like that would be a very relevant and useful fact to know for this story.

    Eetmahbaiz – actually, according to the Supreme Court decision Warren v District of Columbia (and later upheld in Castle Rock v Gonzales), the police have no duty to protect an individual, even if that individual is in clear and present danger. So, while the police officer may feel terrible that he didn’t stop the guy walking around with a shotgun when that gun goes on a shooting spree 10 minutes later, he has no legal duty to stop him – he may be “publicly crucified” – but he won’t lose his job and he can’t be sued. That doesn’t mean it’s probably not a good idea to just do a causal stop and talk to the guy for 45 seconds to ask him how he is doing and if there is any problem (i.e. is he carrying the shotgun because someone is after him, he is after someone that broke into his car, etc.). If the dude is acting strange or being elusive/combative, then things get more serious.

    Here’s the deal – I’m all for second amendment rights. But if I see someone that I don’t know in my neighborhood walking down the street carrying a gun, I’m telling my kids to go inside, I’m calling the police (not 911 – just the local dispatch), and I’m going to go out and follow the person from a safe distance (I’ll have my .40 concealed with me – but I’d prefer not to confront the individual as I’m not a big fan of bringing a handgun to a shotgun fight if the person is not mentally stable or not just wanting to exercising his second amendment right to open carry). If more people were like me, the guy carrying the shotgun (even legally) might get a little nervous if 10 or 15 people from the neighborhood were all following him with handguns and shotguns). As for checking his ID – as the law currently stands, all felons (even those who have served their time) are forbidden from possessing a firearm, so I don’t see any problem with the police checking to make sure he is not legal forbidden from possessing the weapon. If you don’t want the police to hassle you about your firearm, keep it out of sight. Pretty simple.

    But there is the rub – it’s not the LEOs’ money – it is tax payer money that is going to pay for the law suit (which means either everyone’s taxes are going to go up or the city will have to make cuts to other services – or within the police department – to recoup the money lost in a law suit). If the law stated that any officer that knowingly or recklessly disregards the state and federal constitution would be personally liable for any subsequent law suit and would also be liable for any judgments the city/state had to pay, I bet we would have a lot more constitutionally compliant LEO’s.

    Desert – hate to break it to you, but if someone is walking around with a AR with the magazine in the mag well, there is a pretty good chance that mag is full. Maybe not 100% of the time, but why on earth would you carry a rifle magazine with no bullets in it? Kind of defeats the purpose – and if you raise the gun to commit a crime, I’m sure the LEO is going to assume that magazine in the mag well has lead projectiles in it.

    So let me see if I understand this correctly – elite Seal Team Six, high value target, unauthorized clearance from target country, one helo crashed, minimal time to acquire target and extract him and intel, not sure how many in compound, expected boobie traps, civilians and possible hostels gathering outside compound gate, target less then 10 miles from Pakistan military base, still have to fly out without being shot down, only ammo is what you are carrying – and these guys are going to waste hundreds of rounds in a mad minute when every second on the ground exposes them to greater risk, exposure and possible capture or death? I call BS.

    Tom – I actually agree with you. I figure even a clearly justified shooting would end up costing me a minimum of $3000 – as I will reserve my right to speak with police until after consulting with my attorney (and he will probably be charging me at least $300/hr – but worth every dime). Even if the police are happy with the outcome and seem to be on my side, no telling what the local prosecutor might do once he gets the case and reads my statements – maybe he is anti-second amendment and wants to make an example out of a citizen defending him/her self. Maybe the local DA is thinking about running for a higher office and thinks prosecuting me would further his political career (even if he privately knows I was 100% justified and the use of the gun was appropriate based on the threat). Maybe the person that I shot was some local bigwig’s kid and that father is buddy/buddy with the DA (or the presiding judge). Maybe another witness that didn’t “feel” threatening by the individual would testify that I over-reacted or that witness is anti-second amendment and is willing to lie on the stand just to sick it to use conceal carry folks. Now, in this case – the guy is screaming that he is going to kill everyone and then starts ordering us into the back – yeah, I’m pretty I would be happily paying $3000 to save my life and the life of the clerk in this instance.

    The only thing worse than not have a CC permit is having a CC permit and not carrying because your conceal holster is too uncomfortable. I have a whole dresser drawer full of conceal carry holsters that didn’t work as advertised or were too uncomfortable to wear for more than an hour or two. Check around. I’m sure there are plenty of folks out there making nice customer holsters these days. The best one I have found I just ran across about 2 months ago. I wear it every day. http://discretedefensesolutions.com/

    I actually got my first IWB holster for my H&K .40 from these guy about 2 months ago (saw them at a gun show in Wichita, KS). By far the best conceal carry holster I have ever used and the first one I have ever owned where I didn’t have to wear an undershirt to keep the holster or grip from digging into my side. Wish these guys would go public so that I could own some of their stock!

    Hey old man RINO suffering from clear dementia – this is not a democracy. It’s a Constitutional Republic. A democracy is when two wolves and one sheep decide what’s for dinner. The beauty of our Constitutional Republic is that has built in protections for the political minority. Congress controls the power of the purse – so guess what, they can elect NOT to fund something. Any law that one Congress passes, another Congress can revoke (or defund). Shame on you McStain.

    Someonce can correct me if I’m wrong – but don’t we all have the RIGHT to shout “fire” in a crowded theater even if there is no fire . . . but, as a result, the local D.A. has the RIGHT to prosecute me for knowingly and falsely doing so? The government can’t stop you from speaking, but they have the right to arrest and prosecute your exercise of that right if it breaks the law (causes panic, incites a riot, leaks classified goverment documents, aids the enemy, etc.).

    Likewise, any of you have the right to call me bad names, slander my reputation, and state known lies about me. And I have the RIGHT to sue you in civil court if I can prove that you knew the statements that were made were untrue and I am not a public figure.

    Unless you are a felon, illegal alien, or mentally ill, you have a RIGHT to own a gun . . . and, once again, the police and D.A. have the RIGHT to arrest and prosecute you if break the law while using that firearm.

    In stead of saying the First Amendment has “limitations”, I would prefer to state that the EXERCISE of one’s First Amendment rights may have consequences.

    Yes – and the Muslim Brotherhood is a secularists organization that just wants to see democracy take over in the region (and we all know what the definition of “democracy” is don’t we – it’s when two wolves and one sheep vote on what’s for dinner). These FSA leaders would never lie to us, would they??? And even if the FSA were to prevail, they would never be overrun by a more organzied and more cut-throat bunch of “Islamic extremists” would they? Naa. Never. We’re golden. Light’em up!

    “He listened to their pleas for support and concluded that the U.S. “has a national security obligation” to keep Syria from being controlled by Assad or Islamic extremists.”

    Ummm . . . maybe I’m missing something, but isn’t the FSA made up a large number of different groups, including terrorists and “Islamic extremists”? Who are we supposed to be supporting again?

    Can the adiministraction say with “high confidence” that the regime’s execution of a conventional rocket and artillery attack against the Damascus suburbs in the early hours of August 2 did not actually hit the rebels’ chemical weapons stockpiles given to them by Saudia Arabia? Guess what, you hit a stockpile of rebel chemical weapons with conventional artillery and anyone living around those stockpiles ends up dead. Just saying.

    Careful – they accept those GIFT cards and I’m pretty sure the NCAA is going to come down on them like a bag of hammers. NCAA athletes don’t get to accept gifts unless pre-proved by the all-seeing NSA, I mean NCAA.
