Remember, a police state is a safe state


Why not just have the police hold court right there at the scene and save all the costs of judges, juries and not bother with the Bill of Rights. All the great Progressive regimes of the last century worked that way. Th USSR, The Third Reich, China and now Venezuela. Good company Vermont.

Vermont gun confiscation bill heads to House floor

A bill that would allow police to remove guns from a domestic violence situation without due process passed out of committee and is headed to the House floor.

On Wednesday, lawmakers of the House Judiciary Committee approved H. 422 by a 7-4 party-line vote, with seven Democrats voting in favor and four Republicans voting against.

Chris Bradley, president of the Vermont Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs, says the bill could face numerous constitutional challenges.

“I am especially concerned about the Second Amendment Article 16 rights of the victim,” he said.

If police are allowed to remove weapons from the scene of a domestic dispute, Bradley says, that could inadvertently leave the victim defenseless.

“From personal experience, I can tell you, you cannot remove all weapons, and you will leave the vulnerable with no means of self-defense,” domestic violence survivor Estella Leach wrote as part of her written testimony to the committee. “A restraining order is meaningless against someone who is intent on retribution.”

Bradley added that the bill could also be challenged on other grounds, including Fourth Amendment protection against illegal search and seizure. The bill has seen numerous changes regarding the weapons an officer can confiscate during a domestic violence situation.

“They moved away from trying to define ‘weapons’ and finally just threw in the towel and said, ‘Well let’s just use “firearms” ’ because that’s what they were after all along,” Bradley said. [snip]

Supporters’ responses
Committee Vice Chair Rep. Charles Conquest, D-Wells River, said that the bill has been “revised in a way as narrow as we can” to maintain its constitutionality while ensuring a victim’s safety. [snip]

While some studies make a correlation between high rates of gun ownership and homicides against women, gun rights advocates note that statistics for Vermont published by the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence conflict with statistics from the FBI and the Vermont Crime Information Center.

The conflicting data may be owed to the fact that the Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence counts suicides as domestic violence homicides, even in cases where domestic violence was reported many years prior to the suicide.

State Rep. Maxine Grad, D-Moretown, the chair of the House Judiciary Committee and main sponsor of H.422, expressed satisfaction with the committee’s work.

“This is a very necessary ability for law enforcement that does not currently exist,” she said. [snip]

Vermont has what is called a “Constitutional Carry” which means no permits or government papers to carry a concealed weapon or carry openly. This is the bane of the Gun Control Crowd. Given the low rate of gun violence in Vermont all of their arguments about unfettered guns in the hands of the population fall flat.
From personal experience, I called 9-1-1 and got put on hold. So much for police protection.

Daily Insanity

Once more the American Left and their followers have proven that a collective mental disorder is rife in the ranks, not just the Poobahs. The subsequent news droppings from their stable should convince the most hardened Donkey dullard.

Marijuana DOES cause schizophrenia and triggers heart attacks, experts say in landmark study that slams most of the drug’s medical benefits as ‘unproven’

Marijuana does raise the risk of getting schizophrenia and triggers heart attacks, according to the most significant study on the drug’s effects to date.

A federal advisory panel admitted cannabis can almost certainly ease chronic pain, and might help some people sleep.

But it dismisses most of the drug’s other supposedly ‘medical benefits’ as unproven.

Crucially, the researchers concluded there is not enough research to say whether marijuana effectively treats epilepsy – one of the most widely-recognized reasons for cannabis prescriptions.

The report also casts doubt on using cannabis to treat cancers, irritable bowel syndrome, or certain symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, or helping people beat addictions. [snip]

The scouring of the Left’s brain cells of any value via clouds of smoke proves that the Left is on a path to extinction.

In this situation, one has to believe her ‘black privilege’ gizmo ceased working.

Police Charge Student For Threat Made At Arundel High School

The Anne Arundel County Police Department has charged a 14-year-old girl with a juvenile citation for sending a threatening tweet related to Arundel High School.

Police began their investigation after Arundel High School officials told them about a suspicious Twitter account.

The account, named @KoolkidsKlanKkk, reportedly sent out a tweet that read, “We’re planning to attack tomorrow”.

This account used similar language to a racial petition that had been passed around Anne Arundel High School by the “Kool Kids Klan”.

Police worked with Twitter, and were able to identify the person who created the account and sent out the threatening tweet.

That person has been identified as a 14-year-old African American female who attends Arundel High School.

Authorities interviewed the girl while she was with her parents, and police say she admitted to creating the Twitter account and sending the threatening tweet.

She was charged with a juvenile citation for disruption of school activities and released to her parents.

“It makes me really upset. I can’t believe that students would write something like that,” said parent Michelle Fitzurka.

“I kind of felt unsafe at the school and a little hurt,” said Taylor Nash, a freshman at Arundel High.

The school district said all the students involved in that incident were disciplined, but the students were not identified, and to complicate an already tense situation, Wednesday night hundreds showed up for a meeting at the school, but some parents still had questions.

“That is not good enough. What’s going to happen with the students that are still here?”said parent Tamara Hannah.

“The federal law prohibits me from telling you exactly what the consequences were. But I will say to you that the school acted swiftly, they acted aggressively and they administered appropriated disciplinary action,” said Bob Mosier, chief communications officer of Anne Arundel Public Schools.

As parents left the school, there’s hope the community will begin to heal.

“I am very confident that Ms. Davenport and the staff at the school is going to do everything they can to keep all of our children safe,” said parent Sheri Paris.

“I just hope that we can all come together, not just here at the school, but as a society,” said parent Lisa Smith. [snip]

To quote some other person who had some difficulty sorting out messages: “Stupid is as stupid does.”

Just say no doesn’t extend to chicken nuggets. From all appearances, since he didn’t get a nugget. Maybe he needed a bigger gun?

12-year-old boy demands chicken nugget at gunpoint, classmate refuses

A 12-year-old boy allegedly pulled a gun on a classmate and demanded she give him a chicken nugget earlier this week, NYPD officials said.

It was his second attempt to get a chicken nugget from the girl, police said. The boy noticed the girl buy chicken McNuggets at a Lexington Avenue and East 103rd Street McDonald’s on Tuesday. He asked her for a McNugget and she refused.

The boy allegedly followed the girl into the 103rd St. No. 6-train station, pointed a gun at her head and demanded a McNugget again, police said. The girl smacked the gun away from her head and told the boy to leave her alone.

She boarded the train unharmed, police said. The girl later saw the boy showing the gun to another child on the train.

Police took the boy into custody on Wednesday after the girl reported the incident to school officials. [snip]

And where did all this take place? Why is the Gun Control heart of New York State. No one need be worried about things like this because, like Chicago, New York has solid gun laws, written by the Left to make sure you never face an armed criminal.

So even thought this is reported in the news, it has to go down the memory hole. It didn’t happen.

Jon Huntsman Mulling 2018 Senate Run [snip] “We’re going to take a good look at maybe a future Senate run in the state of Utah,” Huntsman revealed. He also added that a run would depend “based on what Senator Hatch chooses to do.” [snip]

Given his less than sterling Conservative principles, he’ll have problems outside Zion National Park.

OSU Assistant Director of Residence Life: Let’s Be Compassionate About The Man Who Tried To Kill Us Yesterday On Monday, Ohio State University student Abdul Razak Ali Artan plowed a car through a group of students and then attacked people with a “big-ass knife” before being shot dead by a university police officer. For one OSU employee, however, it was not okay to celebrate that an attempted killing spree had been foiled: instead, people need to have “compassion” for the person who wanted them dead. [snip]

Some people have a serious case of TERMINALSTUPIDITY. His title needs to be changed to AD of Residential Death. The OSU police officer displayed the proper compassion for the skell.

New York Mayor: End The Electoral College Because It’s Problematic For Our Democracy  New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio is on the whine wagon about the 2016 election. The mayor called for the Electoral College to be dissolved since Clinton got over 2 million more votes, which means that this is very, very problematic for our democracy (via The Hill): [snip]

There is only one problem with this Clown’s reasoning. The USA isn’t a Democracy, it’s a Republic, set up so that the large urban centers can rule over the rural areas. The Constitution after all these years proved the Founding Fathers rightly thinking. They weren’t considering the foulness of Communism.

Trump: “There Must Be Consequences” for Flag Burners The right to burn the flag – although highly offensive and disrespectful to our country, what it stands for, and those who fought to protect it – has been affirmed by the Supreme Court twice. In 1989, flag burning was labeled “symbolic speech” protected by the First Amendment in Texas v. Johnson. [snip]

Burning the Flag is quite offensive to me and many others. Where we part company is the legal punishing of the offenders is just as bad as the Progressive laws compelling persons to violate their religious beliefs: Birth Control in Nun run medical institutions or compelling a bakery to make a cake celebrating an affair which runs counter to their religious practices.

Gen. Petraeus Now Pushing Gun Control

Retired U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, who has long resisted calls to run for political office, is teaming up with retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly to create a new group urging greater gun control. [snip]

Once more we have someone who faded from the MSM’s view, grabs at the first door opening to get back into the news. CNN, a less than reliable news source had a gabfest with Petraeus trying to advance their agenda on GUNS.
