Imagine a world where police have the ability to fire pain ray guns at protesters that instantly cause them excruciating pain as soon as they are activated.
Imagine a world where police have the ability to torture from a distance anyone they want at the touch of a button.
Does that sound like something out of a science fiction novel?
It is in the final stages of development and could soon be a reality on the streets of America.
NewScientist is reporting that the U.S. Department of Justice is developing two portable "non-lethal" weapons that inflict severe pain from a distance using either microwave technology or laser beams.
According to that report, the intention of the U.S. Department of Justice is to put these pain ray weapons into the hands of police on the streets of America.
Some observers are very upset about this development, as they claim that giving police the ability to instantly torture anyone they want from a distance is a very dangerous thing to do.
Others are applauding the development of these new "non-lethal" weapons as a step away from the use of "lethal" weapons by police.
All of this comes a couple of months after a report that the U.S. Army will be deploying mobile pain ray trucks (called the Active Denial System) that have the capability to instantly fry the flesh of whole crowds of protesters using microwave technology.
A whole crowd of rioters actually being cooked like they are in a microwave oven.
Instead of finding more ways to torture and kill one another, perhaps we all should be looking for more ways to love each other.Imagine a world where police have the ability to fire pain ray guns at protesters that... more
LOS ANGELES — Actor and one-time Phoenix resident David Spade has donated $100,000 to the Phoenix Police Department. The department will use the much needed funds to buy high-powered rifles to defend the city from the growing influence of Mexican drug cartels.
Through his publicist, Spade explained that "these guys need to be able to do their jobs, and I am just happy I could help."
Spade says he got the idea for the donation after seeing a story on FOX News. Phoenix police say Spade called asking to donate to their rifle program after he saw that officers, outgunned and desperate for more firepower, wanted to buy their own semi-automatic rifles.
“Mr. Spade has stepped forward and has given a gift to our officers of increased safety," said Police Chief Jack Harris. "I am thrilled that we were able to accept that money that will hopefully bring us to 300 rifles on the street.”
Phoenix Police Sgt. Alan Hill says 50 AR-15 rifles to be purchased with the donation will be given to patrol officers.
Spade, 44, grew up in the Phoenix area and graduated from Arizona State University. The "Rules of Engagement" star has helped out cops before, donating $25,000 to the family of a fallen Phoenix police officer last year.LOS ANGELES — Actor and one-time Phoenix resident David Spade has donated... more

Americans have cut back on buying cars, furniture and clothes in a tough economy, but there's one consumer item that's still enjoying healthy sales: guns. Purchases of firearms and ammunition have risen 8 to 10 percent this year, according to state and federal data.
Several variables drive sales, but many dealers, buyers and experts attribute the increase in part to concerns about the economy and fears that if Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois wins the presidency, he will join with fellow Democrats in Congress to enact new gun controls. Obama has said that he believes in an individual right to bear arms but that he also supports "common-sense safety measures."
"Even though [Obama] has a lot going for him, he's not very pro-gun," said Paul Pluff, a spokesman for Massachusetts-based Smith & Wesson, which has reported higher sales. Gun enthusiasts are "going to go out and get [firearms] while they still can."

One thing that has been overlooked this election cycle is Obama’s stance on gun rights. In my opinion he has been given a free-ride by the liberal “old media” and without independent organizations the issue would pretty much a non-issue.One thing that has been overlooked this election cycle is Obama’s stance on gun... more
A gun rights group is calling on Gov. Ed Rendell to "order a halt to unlawful police-state tactics at presidential campaign events" after a Beaver County man was arrested Friday for openly carrying a gun near where Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama later made an appearance.
The group, OpenCarry.org, accused state police of suspending the right to bear arms in Beaver by arresting John Noble, 50, of Industry. State police said Noble would be charged with disorderly conduct for carrying a loaded, holstered and exposed 9 mm semiautomatic because he breached a secured perimeter of a presidential candidate rally, creating alarm and causing a breakdown in security.
OpenCarry.org says Noble was not at the Obama event, did not attempt to enter the event area and broke no law.

"You don't want people who are violent carrying firearms," said Troy Eid, U.S. Attorney for Colorado and a leader in the expanded crime-fighting effort.-
To develop more cases, Pueblo police a few months ago set up a joint operation with agents of the principal federal gun law enforcement agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The police department dedicated two officers and the ATF assigned two agents to work as a team at police headquarters, Deputy Police Chief John Ercul said. The agents previously worked at the bureau's Colorado Springs office. Ercul said the arrangement is an asset in the department's crime-fighting cabinet.

I love the above video - guns are for girls too, not just for boys. My wife loves to go shooting at the gun range almost as much as I do, and when my daughter is older I'm sure she'll enjoy joining us.
My blog is about news and editorials related to the shooting sports, the 2nd Amendment, and the right to keep & bear arms (RKBA).
The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights:
A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall NOT BE INFRINGED.
Just as a side note, the Militia is NOT any of the existing branches US Military which actually make up what is considered to be a professional "Standing Army" - the US Militia is a defined group of citizens in the US - specifically defined in our constitution to be all able bodied citizens from the age of 19 through 40.I love the above video - guns are for girls too, not just for boys.
