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.

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.

Three Thugs Get a Surprise When they Targeted What They Thought was a Defensless Woman … Until She Pulled Out her .38 Revolver
HERO OF THE DAY … Shirley Roberts.
She said no to crime and protected herself with her .38 revolver. Yet another example of how restrictive gun laws are just so wrong.
Talk about appearances can be deceiving. As reported at KMBC, woman’s husband had just left their Kansas City home in the 10600 block of Greenwood Road to get an oil change when Shirley Roberts heard someone jiggle the knob of the front door. The woman also she saw two other men heading to the back door. The three thugs thought they had scoped out an easy mark as they looked to rob the, what they thought, defenseless woman. They could not have been more wrong, thankfully. Shirley Roberts, who had been recently going to the shooting range to practice, whipped out her .38 revolver and started shooting at the would be thugs protecting herself. The police later arrested three individuals after they came to Research Medical Center. One of the men was treated for a gunshot wound to his chest. Hmm, wonder if it was covered by Obamacare?
The woman said she peered through the blinds and saw the men putting on gloves and raising their feet to try to kick their way through the sliding glass doors. She said she pulled the trigger and fired straight ahead.
The woman said the men ran off, firing shots toward the house.
The woman’s husband, Oscar Roberts, said they’ve been to a shooting range to practice what to do in case something like this happened.
This is just yet another example of how those who want to restrict guns and call for gun control from “We the People” are so wrong and misguided. A .38 revolver is the ultimate equalizer. One 52 year old woman was able to fend off three thugs and incapacitate them to the point where they would later be arrested by police. What would have happened if she was not allowed to own a gun? She would have been a victim.
A group of thugs figured it would be easy to overpower one Kansas City woman. After all, her husband had just left to run an errand, leaving her all alone in the home.
They couldn’t have been more wrong.
The woman, later identified as Shirley Roberts, 52, immediately retrieved her gun after she heard someone jiggle the knob of the front door. She also witnessed two additional men heading to the back door.
Looking through the blinds, Roberts saw the men putting on gloves and preparing to force their way into her home. So she trained her firearm on the men and opened fire.
What happened to the world I grew up in? Is this still America?
CBS2 in New York reports that a man was arrested and lead out of his Queens home in handcuffs in front of his wife and children. Talk about your complete overreaction but liberal adults.
What was his crime that the Queens man was made to do a perp walk?
- Explode 2 bombs during the end of a marathon killing 3 and wounding 100′s?
- Hold captive 3 girls for 10 years and make them sex slaves?
- Shoot a plastic toy gun that could not have harmed anyone?
One has to listen to the libs interviewed in the video below. These people could care less that the gun was a plastic toy. It was a gun and someone had to be arrested. Simply unbelievable. If having a plastic toy gun and shooting it in public was a crime, I would have been on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List as a child.
If you guessed #3, you got it right. I guess its a good thing he did not have a “Big Gulp” with him and a salt shaker, in NYC they may have put him away for live with as ridiculous as the city have become.
As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported, Jack Pawlowski was led out of his Queens home in handcuffs Wednesday, with his stunned wife and three young kids looking on. He said nothing as detectives put him into a squad car.
But earlier, he allowed CBS 2 up to the family’s apartment to get a video of what he calls the harmless “kids’ toys” that started it all.
What happened to the country I was born in? How can a country with a 2nd Amendment right to bear arms have such laws? Not only cannot individuals have guns, it would appear they can’t have toy ones either. I guess these liberal fools think some one will shoot their eye out.
So she called the police. (She also for some reason called City Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr.) And the rest, as they say, is history — only it isn’t. New York already has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation. The SAFE Act, signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, places a boatload of restrictions on New Yorkers who own or seek to own guns, including toy guns, which are permissible provided the gun has bright a orange tip at the end of the barrel. That was the case in only one of the toy firearms Pawlowski brought to the playground. Hence, his arrest
