WarFairy and Fosscad are working on a double action revolver as a tribute to Yoshitomo Imura

Yoshitomo Imura is the dude from Japan who made the news a while ago for being the first person arrested for 3d printing a firearm (his were blank firing.) He was working on a single action zig-zag revolver before his arrest. Warfairy is currently working on an evolution of his design firing from a 6 o’clock chamber position as a tribute to him. It uses metal barrel and chamber inserts made out of what appears to be steel tubing. Here’s one of their renders (from twitter)

Can’t wait to see it complete and I’m glad to see people standing strong with Imura after the injustice done to him.

Man Calls Cops To Report Vandals At His Home, They Show Up And Kill Him

47-year-old Daniel Martin Jr. of Lawton Oklahoma was shot and killed by police in March after he called 911 to report vandals outside of his house.

The police responsible for the murder have been cleared of any wrong-doing by an internal investigation, and the death has been ruled “justified”.

When Mr. Martin spoke with the 911 dispatcher he warned them that he had a gun, and that he would be carrying it just in case the vandals were to break into his home.

However, somewhere this message got lost in translation, because when Martin opened his front door for the police, someone shouted “gun,” and Lawton police officers Elijah Garcia and Anthony Edwards fired multiple rounds, News Oklahoma reported.

Recordings later obtained of the exchange between the dispatcher and the police show that the police were warned that the victim would have a gun.
“They’re still at my front door,” he said.

The dispatcher asks if the vandals have a firearm, and Martin says he can’t tell. “But I have one,” he adds. “I’m inside with my weapon.”
The police say that Martin was on drugs at the time of the shooting and that he was having delusions, but his wife Tina has corroborated his version of events, and has stated that she was the one who convinced him to call 911 because she also feared for her life.

There was allegedly a shot fired from inside the house just as the police were arriving. If this shot was intended to scare off potential intruders is still unknown, because the suspects were never apprehended.

When police heard shots they went to the door and asked everyone to come outside, knowing that the victim who made the 911 call might be carrying a gun. Despite the warning, both officers opened fired on the man as he opened his door.

Martin died within moments, and the officers were cleared of all charges and allowed to return to their jobs without any sort of independent investigation.

So the BATFE fucked up another sting operation but this time there's a twist

It was in Wisconsin and Congressman Sensenbrenner from WI has introduced a new piece of legislature. Here’s the text from his website:

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Washington should be responsible stewards of the American taxpayers’ money. While all too often that is not the case, this is a good government bill to streamline agency activity at DOJ—increasing effectiveness while decreasing cost. The ATF is a largely duplicative, scandal ridden agency that lacks a clear mission. It is plagued by backlogs, funding gaps, hiring challenges and a lack of leadership. For decades it has been branded by high profile failures. There is also significant overlap with other agencies. At a time when we are approaching $18 trillion in debt, waste and redundancy within our federal agencies must be addressed. Without a doubt, we can fulfill the role of the ATF more efficiently.”

The ATF Elimination Act would transfer enforcement of firearms, explosives and arson laws to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The illegal diversion of alcohol and tobacco products would be transferred to the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). No later than 180 days after enactment, the DEA and FBI must submit to the Congress a plan for winding up the affairs of the ATF. Field offices and other buildings/assets of the ATF will be transferred to the FBI and it will have one year to report excess property to the General Services Administration (GSA).

abortions and guns

Between 1973 and 1997, the mortality rate associated with legal abortion procedures declined from 4.1 (when abortion was illegal) to 0.6 (when it became legal) per 100,000 abortions. 

2. After Australia passed more strict gun control laws after a mass shooting in 1996 at port arthur… the number of firearm-related deaths in Australia declined 47%

I’m not a statistician, but I like those numbers and I want them for me and for my family.

It was dark in Killeen, Texas at 5:30 a.m this summer, and armed men were climbing through his windows, breaking into his home. So the man reached for his weapon to protect his wife and himself. During the shootout one of all those bullets hit and killed Detective Dinwiddie. Another bullet wounded a second member of the SWAT…

today, while cleaning my room, I was mortified to find a small bullet in my carpet, to think that I have been shot at without having even known it

internet research claims that it was a .22mm caliber bullet used in silenced pistols worldwide, to think that civilians are even able to THINK about such a destructive bullet!

this bullet is still in its shape, showcasing its armor-piercing ability! I am absolutely mortified that civilians can obtain such lethal and dangerous bullets and the guns that can shoot them!

Last year, in total, British police officers actually fired their weapons three times. The number of people fatally shot was zero. In 2012 the figure was just one. Even after adjusting for the smaller size of Britain’s population, British citizens are around 100 times less likely to be shot by a police officer than Americans. Between 2010 and 2014 the police force of one small American city, Albuquerque in New Mexico, shot and killed 23 civilians; seven times more than the number of Brits killed by all of England and Wales’s 43 forces during the same period.

The explanation for this gap is simple. In Britain, guns are rare. Only specialist firearms officers carry them; and criminals rarely have access to them. The last time a British police officer was killed by a firearm on duty was in 2012, in a brutal case in Manchester. The annual number of murders by shooting is typically less than 50. Police shootings are enormously controversial. The shooting of Mark Duggan, a known gangster, which in 2011 started riots across London, led to a fiercely debated inquest. Last month, a police officer was charged with murder over a shooting in 2005. The reputation of the Metropolitan Police’s armed officers is still barely recovering from the fatal shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes, an innocent Brazilian, in the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings in London.

In America, by contrast, it is hardly surprising that cops resort to their weapons more frequently. In 2013, 30 cops were shot and killed—just a fraction of the 9,000 or so murders using guns that happen each year. Add to that a hyper-militarised police culture and a deep history of racial strife and you have the reason why so many civilians are shot by police officers. Unless America can either reduce its colossal gun ownership rates or fix its deep social problems, shootings of civilians by police—justified or not—seem sure to continue.

Alabama judge shuts down anti-abortion law with perfect gun analogy 

A law that would have shut down three out of five abortion clinics in the state of Alabama has just been temporarily struck down by a judge using the most immaculate analogy of all reproductive time. U.S. District Judge Myron Thomson ruled that the Alabama legislation, passed in 2013, imposed the unnecessary restriction of having admission privileges to hospitals and therefore posed an “undue burden” on women to get the, let us reiterate, legal, procedure in the state.

Since the proposed law threatens to close down all clinics except for those in Huntsville and Tuscaloosa, the judge suggested that the same law applied to guns would face gross opposition. 

According to Al.com, he proposed a scenario in which gun regulations would force the state to close down all but two stores who sell guns, forcing residents of the state to only buy guns at these two stores.

[HT: Rare]

Americangunfacts.com recently released an info-graphic with some shocking stats about guns in the United States. Shocking, if you are a liberal of course.

Important note:

It is dubious and unconstitutional for any level of government to require its citizens to purchase anything—be it firearms or health insurance.

But the point of the Kennesaw, Georgia, example isn’t the ethics of that policy but the implications of its effectiveness.

Just so we’re clear. ;)
