When Turkey’s semi-official newspaper Yeni Safak called for urgent action in forming a 57-nation “Army of Islam” to besiege and attack Israel, a suggestion undoubtedly approved with at least a wink and nod by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, it would signal the possible intent to create the largest military force on the planet – one nearly as large as the total population of the Jewish state.
The report came just ahead of the summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and was published under the headline, “What if an Army of Islam was formed against Israel?” It was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
But it wasn’t a rhetorical question. It was actually a suggestion to combine the military forces of all Islamic countries to overwhelm the Israeli army in manpower, budget and equipment – even boasting with statistics.

In a not so surprising move, the NRA-ILA announced it would reverse it’s stance on “Risk Protection Orders” or “Gun Violence Restraining Orders”.
Truthfully, I cannot say this comes as a big surprise.
The atmosphere in Washington right now is so Anti-Gun it is pathetic.
Heck, even Corporations that have no dog in the fight (like Grocery store chains such as Krogers) are jumping on the bandwagon and BANNING gun magazines!
Frankly, I think this was a bad move for the NRA and ultimately another hurdle for all law-abiding gun owners.
Anybody that has had any exposure to the legal system, especially regarding restraining orders, knows how BAD this type of legal device can be abused by people with an “axe to grind” or who are driven by less than honorable motives. Plus, with the current hysteria level on the left at about a 15 out of 10, how many false or un-substantiated claims are going to be made against level-headed gun owners in the next six months? I say a great many.
Add to this the reality of how a case turns out ultimately rest in the hands of a JUDGE, not a jury of your peers. So ultimately the outcome of your case will depend on WHAT TYPE OF JUDGE hears it. Will it be a Conservative or a Liberal? And for all of you who think the Courts are “non-partisan”, I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you. Judges are influenced by the bias of the media just like everyday sheeple are.
Big picture wise, I think the net effect of this law is NOT that dangerous people are going to be disarmed, but the OPPOSITE: legitimate gun owners having their Constitutional rights stripped from them IN A LEGAL MANNER and then countless hours of time and money spent by the GUN OWNER in the legal jungle of court cost and fees trying to get their guns back that they should have never lost to begin with.
Being a veteran, I am particularly worried how this will affect us.
You must remember, every time we go to a VA Facility for medical care we are asked questions regarding our mental health, (regardless if we are there for that or not) and if we slip up and answer wrong (as a friend of mine did once joking around with a nurse) we get a free trip to the psych ward for a 24 hour “evaluation” and NOW with this new law we get our guns stripped away to boot. What a great way to show level headed Veterans you care! Send them to the crazy house and take away their guns.
To verify these kind of things happen not just in the VA Medical Clinics but also in the Private Medical sector, Consider this story about a former Police Officer and widower in Connecticut who suffered with melanoma (cancer) and made an off-hand remark to a medical technician about suicide and the next thing you know Cops are knocking on his door with a “Person Posing Risk to Self or Others” Warrant that allowed them to seize all 81 personally owned firearms.
Being a WW2 historian, I have to mention the HUGE elephant in the room.
EVERYTHING the Nazi’s did was LEGAL.
Partly because they OWNED the courts, but mainly because they had written their racist ideology into legislation.
The Nuremberg Race Laws of 1935 were the biggest travesty of Justice the world had ever known, and yet, it was the Nazi’s justification for sending millions of jews to the gas chambers.
Think about that one folks the next time you hear about a “Legal” Gun Confiscation for the “Protection” of a citizen from harming himself or others.
“Legal” Tyranny is still TYRANNY.

An Ohio high school student said he tried to stay apolitical during the National Walkout Day over gun violence but was suspended for his choice to remain in a classroom instead of joining protests or the alternative, going to study hall.
Jacob Shoemaker, a senior at Hilliard Davidson High School, said he didn’t want to take sides in the gun-control debate consuming the country. If he went outside for the walkout, he said, he would be supporting gun control. If he stayed in the common area of the school, he said, he would be seen as supporting gun violence and disrespecting the 17 lives lost in the Parkland, Fla. High school shooting the month before.
Jacob had met with the school’s principal on Tuesday, a day before the rally, for about an hour to find out what exactly the walkout was supporting. But he said the principal reportedly told him it was for the “students to express themselves.”

A Pair of Students in New Jersey were Suspended from School for Going to the Gun Range?
A Student in Minnesota was threatened with Arrest by the School Principal for a Pro-Second Amendment Sign that read: “Guns don’t Kill People, People Kill People” in which over 50 other students had signed.
The Kroger grocery store chain was once lauded by gun owners for standing up to the lunacy of gun control advocates who demanded they ban customers with open or concealed carry weapons from their retail outlets.
Sadly, it appears that the pressure from those who seek to eradicate firearms and the Second Amendment have finally succeeded in wearing down the will of Kroger to resist, not when it comes to open or concealed carry of handguns, but on the issue of so-called “assault weapons” like the AR-15 and other semi-automatic rifles in common use.
According to The Shooting Wire, their affiliate The Outdoor Wire recently obtained a memo from Kroger executives which informed all print magazine distributors who serviced Kroger brand and affiliated stores that the grocery chain would no longer carry, display or sell magazines with “assault weapons content,” though firearms-related publications not containing such content would still be permitted.

Kyle Kashuv, the conservative Parkland student who considers himself a “very strong Second Amendment supporter,” is continuing to take a stand against gun control. Kashuv has met with various members of Congress on both sides of the aisle and has had a number of interviews with prominent media figures where he hopes to garner bipartisan support for the STOP School Violence Act of 2018.
In one of his latest interviews, the high school junior talked to British journalist Piers Morgan, well-known for his anti-gun sentiments, on Good Morning Britain.
Throughout the interview, Kashuv held his own and stood up for the Second Amendment and the right of Americans to bear arms. When Morgan would bring up issues or topics irrelevant to the discussion at hand, Kashuv would bring the debate right back to where it needed to be.

Being a Born and Bred Texan who grew up 1 hour from Austin, the story of Charles Whitman is infamous.
Funny how over 52 years ago the Mass-Shooter Pathology was born right in front of us and nobody really paid attention? How did this happen?
How about instead of blaming the Gun, we look back and LEARN from incidents like this?
The era of mass public shootings began with Charles Whitman in 1966. He taught us all we need to know to prevent or minimize such events. We ignored his lessons.
On August first of that year,Whitman rode the elevator to the top of the Clock Tower at the University of Texas at Austin. He rolled a hand truck along with him that carried a footlocker full of guns and ammunition. Soon after ensued the first mass murder in a public place in America.
Texas Monthly Magazine published an in-depth story for the 40th anniversary of this episode in American history. It is entitled “96 Minutes” – you know why. It contains many quotes from individuals who were there or were immediately affected by those events. If, after you read that, Whitman’s Lessons are not then apparent, then come back and read on, because those lessons are here named and explained.
