Sanford, FL To Ban Neighborhood Watch From Carrying Guns in the Wake of George Zimmerman Being Found Not Guilty in Death of Trayvon Martin
Imagine what would have happened if there was no gun
The city of Sanford, FL is going to ban neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns following the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial in the death of Trayvon Martin. Well that makes all the sense in the world that a man was found not guilty of committing a crime in a court of law by a jury of his peers and Sanford is basically going to act as if he was guilty. As stated at Legal Insurrection, Zimmerman successfully and lawfully defended himself against an attacker and possible real harm, maybe even death and Sanford passes a law banning neighborhood watch volunteers from carrying guns.
The city of Sanford is making major changes to its neighborhood watch program, including banning volunteers from carrying guns while on patrol, and forbidding them from pursuing anyone in their neighborhoods. Just curious, what are they allowed to do, watch the thugs rob, beat and kill people?
Pic Hat Tip – Legal Insurrection
Just months after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Florida city where the incident occurred intends to ban neighborhood watch members from carrying guns, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
The ban on guns in Sanford, Fla. comes amid other changes, including formal training and volunteer registration, which will be announced in full at a meeting Nov. 5 at City Hall. Residents acting in a neighborhood watch role are also not to follow someone they deem suspicious, according to MSN News.
I am sure thugs, robbers and thieves are just wetting themselves with this news. So let’s understand this, if you are a neighborhood watch volunteer you can’t carry a gun, but if you are not, you can. Boy, there is some logic for you.
Win one for the good guys and conceal carry permit holders … Good riddance to bad rubbish!
Welcome to a robbers worst nightmare, a store owner with a concealed carry permit and a good shot. 31 year old Tavell Lawson is dead after he entered the Meador Pharmacy in Dumas, AR around 5:30 a.m. Friday and tried to rob the store at gun point. After the pharmacist initially retreated as Lawson demanded money, the pharmacist pulled his own concealed weapon and shot the masked gunman dead. So much for the individuals who want gun control and limit the Second Amendment.
A man is dead after a failed attempt to rob a local pharmacy.
According to Dumas police, 31-year-old Tavell Lawson entered Meador Pharmacy around 5:30 a.m. Friday wearing a mask and wielding a gun, then demanded money from the pharmacist, who was just opening the store.
The pharmacist initially retreated, but when he could retreat no longer, he pulled his own concealed weapon and shot and killed the masked gunman.
The supporters of the Second Amendment in the United States are alive and well … From Our Cold Dead Hands!!!
The National Rifle Association has announced that its fundraising program “Friends of NRA” is having a record fundraising year and has brought in $51 million in 2013 and hundreds of events left to go before the year end. As stated at the Gateway Pundit, not only is Barack Obama the best gun salesman in the US, he is also the greatest fundraising for the NRA. The LEFT completely over-reached in their attempt to exploit mass shootings in the US and have instead awakened a sleeping People.
Charlton Heston – ” From My Cold Dead Hands” speech
“The success of this year’s Friends of NRA banquets would not have been possible without the hard work of our incredibly dedicated volunteers and attendees,” said Sarah Budi, Director of Volunteer Fundraising in a statement. “Our success is a direct result of their efforts and the reason 2013 has been a record breaking year. Thanks to our supporters, the future continues to look bright for the shooting sports.”
The program has grossed $51 million in 2013, one million dollars more than last year, the NRA announced. There are more than 200 fundraising events left in 2013.
This the LEFT did not over-reach? Just ask those two Colorado state Senators … what are they doing these days, except having been recalled for their efforts.
Secretary of State John Kerry Expected to Sign a UN Arms Trade Treaty Opposed by the Senate and NRA … Treaty Requires Nations to “Establish & Maintain a National Control System,” Including a “National Control List”
Barack Obama’s end run around the US Constitution and the Second Amendment … Secretary of State to sign United Nations Arms treaty that would circumvent Constitution.
Another Obamaination … As reported at The Hill, Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to sign a UN treaty that is strongly opposed by the US Senate and the NRA. A State Department official said the treaty would “reduce the risk that international transfers of conventional arms will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes,” while protecting gun rights. However, not so fast. If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. Just like every idea that stats out with good intentions, there is always a catch. There is a reason why Republicans, the Senate and the NRA are opposed to this end around of the Second Amendment. Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) says, “This treaty is already dead in the water in the Senate, and they know it.” Thankfully, these types of treaties require Senate ratification by elected officials of “We the People” rather than Obama giving away Our rights to the United Nations.
Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to sign an arms trade treaty opposed by the Senate and the gun lobby as early as Wednesday, and Republicans aren’t happy about it.
Kerry’s plan to sign the treaty on the margins of the UN General Assembly in New York this week has sparked immediate criticism from GOP opponents.
“This treaty is already dead in the water in the Senate, and they know it,” said Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services. “The Administration is wasting precious time trying to sign away our laws to the global community and unelected U.N. bureaucrats.”
A majority of Senate oppose the treaty because it covers small arms, making ratification impossible in the short term.
When is an arms treaty, not an arms treaty … when it is a front to bypass the US Constitution of course. So what is really is in this treaty that pro-Second Amendment folks are extremely worried about? As reported at the WSJ, ‘Obama’s United Nations Backdoor to Gun Control’.
But the new treaty also demands domestic regulation of “small arms and light weapons.” The treaty’s Article 5 requires nations to “establish and maintain a national control system,” including a “national control list.” Article 10 requires signatories “to regulate brokering” of conventional arms. The treaty offers no guarantee for individual rights, but instead only declares it is “mindful” of the “legitimate trade and lawful ownership” of arms for”recreational, cultural, historical, and sporting activities.” Not a word about the right to possess guns for a broader individual right of self-defense.
Gun-control advocates will use these provisions to argue that the U.S. must enact measures such as a national gun registry, licenses for guns and ammunition sales, universal background checks, and even a ban of certain weapons. The treaty thus provides the Obama administration with an end-run around Congress to reach these gun-control holy grails. As the Supreme Court’s Heller and McDonald cases recently declared, the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right “to keep and bear Arms” such as handguns and rifles. Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce remains broad, but the court’s decisions in other cases—even last year’s challenge to the Affordable Care Act—remind us that those powers are limited.
So what part about the Second Amendment and the following of US laws doesn’t Starbucks quite get?
Starbucks Corp, the overpriced coffee chain is asking their US customers who have “open carry” or “conceal carry” permits to leave their guns at home. Starbucks claim that they did not want to get involved in the open carry gun debate, yet they just did. Does Starbucks serve waffles? When a company sides with one side of the debate and restricts the other, that is the definition of taking a side. Just curious, how would you know whether I have carrying or not carrying a concealed weapon while ordering a Pumpkin Spice Latte? The Starbucks’ request does not apply to authorized law enforcement personnel.
A note to Starbucks, none of the mass shootings, especially the one in Newtown, CT was done by an individual who legally could carry a fire arm.Those who believe in the Second Amendment can always chose not to frequent Starbucks following this decision. I guess not spending money I over-priced coffee will allow for the purchase of more ammunition.
Coffee chain Starbucks Corp has asked U.S. customers to leave their guns at home after being dragged into an increasingly fractious debate over U.S. gun rights in the wake of multiple mass shootings.
While many U.S. restaurant chains and retailers do not allow firearms on their properties, Starbucks’ policy had been to default to local gun laws, including “open carry” regulations in many U.S. states that allow people to bring guns into stores.
In August, this led gun-rights advocates to hold a national “Starbucks Appreciation Day” to thank the firm for its stance, pulling the company deeper into the fierce political fight.
Locations for Starbucks Appreciation Day events included Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were shot dead in an elementary school in December. Starbucks closed that shop before the event was scheduled to begin.
Chief Executive Howard Schultz said in an open letter to customers late Tuesday that Starbucks Appreciation Day events “disingenuously portray Starbucks as a champion of ‘open carry.’ To be clear: we do not want these events in our stores.”
I wonder how many Starbucks employees would be thankful if some one legally carrying a gun actually saved them during a commission of a crime? All Starbucks just accomplished was making themselves a gun-free zone and susceptible to future crime by those who do not follow the law.

Oh My … Michelle Malkin Destroys Gun-Grabbing Liberal Democratic Political Strategist Richard Fowler on Hannity … Teen Thrill Kill Thugs Had Guns Illegally
Why we love Michelle Malkin … And why the LEFT do not want any part of this murder case, it does not fit their narrative agenda in any way.
OUCH, Michelle Malkin handed Richard Fowler, Democratic political strategist, on FOX News’ Hannity last night. This lib actually thinks that more gun laws would have prevented the killing of Chris Lane. The gun in the possession of the three “thrill kill” teens was gained illegally as they were all under the age of 18. So what laws could have been enacted except for the confiscation of all guns. And even with that, the criminals, thugs and gang-bangers are still going to find a way to get the guns. It is never about the crime or the murder with the LEFT, its about gun control and gun grabbing.
Would the assault weapons ban have prevented this murder? Obviously not. When one is bored and just wants to kill some one, I hardly believe they are worried about laws, any laws.
What the LIB twist in the wind as the LEFT could not get gun violence any more wrong … is it any wonder why they never want to discuss the Killing Fields of Chicago.

Bringing a Bat to Rob a Gun Shop … Would Be Robber Derrick Mosley Foiled by Gun Shop Owner with a … Gun
How many times must we say, don’t ever bring a knife to a gun fight, or in this case … a baseball bat to rob a gun shop.
Once again we are witness why we have a Second Amendment right to bear arms. So stand your ground is a bad thing, eh? So what exactly is the issue with self-defense and defending your property? As reported at KATU, 22 year old Derrick Mosley attempted to rob a gun shop in Beaverton, Oregon on Thursday armed with a baseball bat. As the not so bright robber smashed the glass display case with a bat, the owner of the store pulled out his own handy-dandy peace maker and pointed it square at the would be robber. Wow, what are the odds that the owner of a gun shop would have his own gun? Say it isn’t so! To add insult to injury to the not so bright robber, the gun wielding owner held the robber at gun point until the police arrived. Mosley was charges of first degree robbery, first degree theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and second degree criminal mischief
Sheriff’s deputies say Mosley walked into Discount Gun Sales on Southwest Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway around 4 p.m. Thursday with a bat in hand and smashed a display case.
But they say when Mosley tried to steal a gun, the store manager simply pulled out his own personal firearm and pointed it straight at the would-be-robber. The manager then yelled some orders at the guy and got him to drop the baseball bat, the gun he had tried to take and a nine-inch long knife he had on him.
When sheriff’s deputies arrived, they found Mosley on the floor being held at gunpoint by the manager.
EXIT QUESTION I: If the owner had shot and killed the would be thief with the baseball bat, would Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama been railing against this store owner as well?
EXIT QUESTION II: So how would this store owner have been able to defend himself or his property of Obama and Democrats get their way with gun control?
The Buckeye Firearms Foundation Raises $12K To Buy George Zimmerman Guns & Security Systems (Update: Appears Massive Denial of Service Attack of Website)
A Second Amendment battle of a right to bear arms turns into a First Amendment attack, denial of service …
An Ohio firearms group, the Buckeye Firearms Foundation, has raised $12,000 for George Zimmerman to be speant on guns and security systems. George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer, was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter earlier this month by a jury in the death of Trayvon Martin. However, since the verdict Zimmerman and his family have received countless death threats. This donation was also a reaction to Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ not giving Zimmerman’s gun back following his trial. The check for $12,150.37 sent to George Zimmerman could also be used in his legal defense.
An Ohio firearms group has raised more than $12,000 to be spent on guns or a security system for George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida. But the money could end up being used to pay for Zimmerman’s defense costs and fees.
The $12,150.37 check that the group wrote to Zimmerman is the result of a fundraising effort that was launched because the group believes Zimmerman’s gun rights are being violated by the U.S. Department of Justice. The department has taken all the evidence from the trial, including the gun that killed Martin, as part of a civil rights investigation.
UPDATE I: It appears the website of the Buckeye Firearms Foundation has experienced a massive denial of service attack. Is it any wonder why the Gerstle family, who was helped rescued by George Zimmerman when their SUV over-turned, wanted to stay out of the public eye for fear of being attacked themselves.
A Denial of Service web attack took down the Ohio-based Buckeye Firearms Association website on Wednesday after the association sent George Zimmerman a check to purchase a new firearm.
Director of Marketing and Communications Dean Rieck sent out an email statement Wednesday afternoon, saying the overwhelming attack took out both Buckeye Firearms Association and Buckeye Firearms Foundation’s websites.
“Our IT guy says it’s a ‘denial of service’ or DoS attack. This is not the ordinary ‘hack’ attack that we’ve experienced many times in the past,” Rieck said. ”A DoS attack involves using significant resources to bombard a server to temporarily or permanently disrupt service.”
