Donnie Johnston: Revealed weapon beats concealed weapon – Columns

Since it looks like I was blocked of Facebook:

“How about this idea Donnie; you write columns about stuff you actually know something about and leave the your opinions of lethal force encounters to those who actually know something about saving lives…

Wow, look at that, concealed carriers who win a gunfight… imagine that.”

Now I’m not advocating anyone walking around with any gun on his person. You know me. I’m not much on shooting people. But if these folks with concealed weapons permits are really worried about their safety—and not just trying to prove a point—then they should be carrying a double-barrel 12-gauge shotgun loaded with buckshot.


1 v. 3: Georgia Woman Fends Off Three Home Invaders

Using the force multipliers of shock, speed, and violence of action, a Georgia woman quickly routs the armed miscreants. Well done, we love it when the victim isn’t.

In Georgia, three armed would-be home invaders surely picked the wrong house when a woman came barreling in with her firearms, killing one of them. Security camera footage captured the attempted home invasion, showing the men flee as shots rang out. Two of the men are still at large. The local police department said this was a clear-cut case of self-defense. The men were shown to be carrying firearms when they entered her home (via WSB-TV):

Someone is learning how to take down the Internet – What you can do to safeguard yourself

In a nutshell: The internet is highly centralized and vulnerable to attacks.

The solution to this problem is a distributed network that that becomes more secure and faster as more people partake.

Technologies like MaidSafe are leading the way, and are now in alpha testing.

“These probes take the form of precisely calibrated attacks designed to determine exactly how well these companies can defend themselves, and what would be required to take them down. It feels like a nation’s military cybercommand trying to calibrate its weaponry in the case of cyberwar.”

NY Bombing Suspect ‘Not on a U.S. Terror Watch List’ – Breitbart

As we have mentioned before… “The best security measures, people, and technology the world has to offer could not thwart the ISIS attacks in Paris. Nor will these practices, people, and technologies thwart the next attack.”

Although Rahami is suspected of ties to a bombing — rather than a firearm-based attack — it is worth noting that his alleged example represents a larger, consistent pattern of attackers who would not be stopped by the inclusion of terror watch lists and/or no-fly lists in gun control. In this way, Rahami is reminiscent of the gunman who killed 49 during the June 12 Orlando terror attack and the terrorists who killed 14 in San Bernardino, as none of these attackers were on a terror watch list.

F.B.I. Treats Minnesota Mall Stabbing Attack as ‘Potential Act of Terrorism’ – The New York Times

A report by a news agency linked to the Islamic State claimed on Sunday that a “soldier of the Islamic State” was behind a stabbing attack on Saturday night at a Minnesota shopping mall, an episode that the F.B.I. said it was investigating as a “potential act of terrorism.” Nine people were injured in the attack before an off-duty police officer fatally shot the knife-wielding man, the authorities in St. Cloud said.

DARPA’s plan for total surveillance of low-flying drones over cities | KurzweilAI

DARPA’s recently announced Aerial Dragnet program is seeking innovative technologies to “provide persistent, wide-area surveillance of all unmanned aerial systems (UAS), such as quadcopters, operating below 1,000 feet in a large city. UAS devices can be adapted for terrorist or military purposes, so U.S. forces will “increasingly be challenged by the need to quickly detect and identify such craft — especially in urban areas, where sight lines are limited and many objects may be moving at similar speeds,” DARPA said.

No, New York Times: Pointing out Hillary’s gun hypocrisy isn’t a violent threat

It is a standard rhetorical tack Republicans have been using for as long as I can remember and it is a perfectly reasonable argument. Pointing out that a candidate or government official who favors gun control is a hypocrite because he or she has armed bodyguards is as routine and unoriginal as pledging to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in government.
