Take a look at one of WA ST Gov. Inslee’s new police force task members

In response to the shootings at CHAZ/CHOP, Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee tweeted the following:

“We are going to take a hard look at how we manage independent investigations of police use of force in WA. Our new task force will recommend actions we can take to create a more just WA. It includes community leaders, impacted family members and law enforcement representatives.”

In this Twitter thread he lists all the members of the task force. This includes Livio De La Cruz – board member, Black Lives Matter SEA-KC.

He/Him: BLM SEA-KC board member and JD candidate Livio De La Cruz

Let’s take a look at Livio (he/him), shall we? From he/him Twitter bio: “JD Candidate 2022 at SeattleLaw. Freelance #Unity3D Programmer #GameDev, He/Him.”

Yes, Livio is going to study law. Which should make you very nervous considering this tweet by he/him on June 22:

“1. Police kill people
2. Seattle protests this
3. Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed
4. White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.
5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

There’s A LOT of presumptive and unproven statements in this tweet. You’d think a JD candidate would be able to back up all of he/him assertions with some facts, right? Here’s he/him following tweet:

“Do you know what it’s like to have people in power call for your death, to have them shout their bloodlust so loudly that the entire country hears it, only to have everyone blame YOU for the death that results from this?”

I’m no JD candidate yet I did take debate class in high school and learned how to prove my case. Here ‘ya go, Livio:

1. “Police kill people”

Yes, police do kill people. They kill in self defense, a criminal committing a crime, protecting a victim from a criminal, and in some cases of police brutality. They also kill people who are unarmed.

Police have contact with MILLIONS of people throughout the US every year. Last year, according to the Washington Post’s database of police-involved shootings, nine unarmed black people were shot and killed by the police, compared to 19 unarmed white people.

What’s your point, Livio, about “police kill people?”

“Police kill people” is a generic statement. Accidents kill people. Rioters kill people. Drugs kill people. A lot of things kill people.

My point is that police kill less unarmed black people than white. What is your point, exactly?

How Seattle “protests”/Q13 Fox News photo

2. “Seattle protests this”

Yes they do. Seattle protests that police kill people while they also loot, riot and burn down businesses. Because nothing says protestors are against police brutality by creating violence throughout your city.

I would also put forth that your definition of “protests” has been arbitrarily expanded to include the illegal occupation of public/private property and terrorization of fellow tax-paying citizens.

3. “Republicans say, repeatedly, these protestors deserve to be shot and killed”

Please provide evidence where republicans state that PEACEFUL protestors deserve to be shot and killed. We all know that the First Amendment, with qualifiers, applies to protests. Why leave out that one important word? I’ll wait.

For all those “protestors” who riot, loot and burn businesses, yes, they do deserve to be shot. That’s called self defense or affirmative defense, and one has a reasonable right to defend real or personal property. As a JD candidate, do you believe that law-abiding taxpayers and property owners should forfeit their legal rights to protestors?

4. “White people agree, they bring guns, they shoot, they kill.”

Livio, you provide no evidence of this statement. As a JD candidate, you should understand that you have a duty to provide a burden of proof and evidence that establishes the truth of your statement. Produce something that may pause me to consider your claim.

I know of no white person who showed up at the recent Seattle protests with their guns to shoot and kill. I’ll wait for your evidence.

5. “It’s the protesters’ fault!”

In the absence of rules of evidence, I guess this conclusion works for you.

Good luck in law school, Livio. And good luck in the courtroom.

Polk County Florida Sheriff…I like this guy!

Polk County Florida Sheriff Grady Judge speaking about the riots/protests:

“The people in Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns… And if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns.”

Bloomberg derides hero Jack Wilson: “It’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot”

According to The Hill, Nanny Bloomberg said this on January 1 when speaking about the Texas West Freeway Church of Christ hero Jack Wilson who stopped a shooter with his own gun:

“It may be true that someone in the congregation had his own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people, but it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot,” the former mayor said earlier this month, adding, “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”

Check it out:

Tell you what, Mr. Nanny Bloomberg: I’d rather have an “average” citizen carrying a gun than a CRIMINAL. At least I’d know that we aren’t all sitting ducks.

And I’m guessing that Bloomberg doesn’t know ANY of the basic firearm safety rules, including “know your target and what’s behind it.”

That’s because this assh*le wouldn’t know the first thing about what us “average” citizens face because he is surrounded by private security. Freakin HYPOCRITE.

So if an assailant decides to break into my home, I have to call 911 and WAIT for them to arrive and WAIT for them to decide to shoot a perp who most likely might have done me harm/killed me by then?

That’s liberal logic for ‘ya. Bloomberg is truly a mental disorder.

This is Chiraq: 14-year-old girl hits victim with pellet gun; victim fires back using handgun & both are arrested

Couple lessons to be learned here: 1) You cannot protect yourself in strict gun-controlled Chiraq unless you have ALL the licenses THEY deem necessary (or you are a criminal and don’t care about gun control laws) and 2) Never meet anyone in person from an online transaction without a buddy in tow.

There’s a third lesson here which is the obvious: Stay far, far away from Chiraq.

From Fox News: A teenage girl who was shot in the chest in a Chicago neighborhood Friday night is now facing an attempted robbery charge after officials said she tried to rob a woman she was meeting for a sale.

The Chicago Police Department said in a news release on Saturday the incident happened around 5:45 p.m. in the city’s Little Village neighborhood, when 21-year-old Araceli Diaz met with the 14-year-old girl after the teenager arranged the meeting to buy a dog.

When the 14-year-old met up with Diaz, officials said the teen pulled out a pellet gun, struck the 21-year-old on the head with it and tried to take the dog without paying for it.

“We’re not sure where they met initially or how they communicated, but all we do know is that the 14-year-old did show up with other intentions and she pulled out a BB gun,” Chicago Police Officer Jose Jara told FOX32.

In response, Diaz then allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot the girl in the chest.

Chicago Police said in a news release the 21-year-old was found to have a valid Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification card, or FOID card, to possess a weapon, but no concealed carry license.

Diaz was subsequently arrested in Cicero about an hour after the shooting and charged with unlawful use of a weapon, according to police.

The 14-year-old was transported to an area hospital where she was treated for her gunshot wound before she was arrested Saturday morning and charged with attempted armed robbery. She is scheduled to appear in juvenile court on Dec. 9.

Chicago police said that Diaz is scheduled to appear in court on Sunday.

“A BB gun can appear like a real gun and to anyone out there it’s gonna appear like a real gun, to the police, and to any individual, and if someone’s carrying and they have their own CCL they may use their own gun to defend themselves,” Jara told FOX32.

Womyn tells people how they can best protect their family: get a life insurance policy and not a gun

I thought progressives were all about choice? Oh wait, that only applies to killing babies.

Mommy Gabrielle Blair knows what’s best for you…

Some woman on Twitter named Gabrielle Blair tweeted some personal opinions about how you should protect your family. She describes herself as mother of 6 and a best-selling NYT author. Here ‘ya go:

There are far better ways to protect your family than a gun. Get a life insurance policy. I know you truly believe that you’ll need to defend your family at gunpoint. You need to let that go.

Statistically it’s just not going to happen. I know it’s boring, but if you want to protect your family, things like seatbelts, fire alarms, and life insurance are your best bet.

The reality is, you’re probably going to die of heart disease or diabetes, or just old age and natural causes. I know it’s not as cool-sounding as an armed-standoff, but it’s still true.

If the topic of protecting your family comes up, a gun extremist will immediately imagine an armed intruder who has come to murder. That’s not going to happen. It’s rare enough that it’s not something people need to worry about or make decisions based on.

If the topic of protecting your family comes up among people who actually interact and care for children each day, they think of things like using car seats, preventing hormones and dangerous chemicals in food, child-proofing the cleaning supplies, and schoolyard bullying.

Hundreds and hundreds of you have explained to me that a life insurance policy won’t protect against an armed intruder. I never said it would. The thing you don’t understand: There isn’t going to be an armed intruder. That’s just your paranoia.

A gun in the home is FAR more likely to kill or maim a household member than it is to protect them. Enjoy your daydreams about armed stand-offs. But that’s all they are. Daydreams.”

FYI Gabrielle, everyone has different life experiences and is entitled to protect their own family AS THEY SEE FIT (provided it’s legal).

Several years ago I had a minor, prohibited possessor living down the street from me – one who liked to commit armed robberies yet couldn’t be thrown in jail because of his age. Said punk broke into my next-door neighbor’s home – WITH A GUN – and my neighbor had to shoot him to protect himself. Unfortunately he missed the kid.

The good news is the punk continued with his hobby after he turned 18 and is now in prison for some time.

While my boyfriend was on duty one night, two hooded “youths” came knocking on my door. I turned on/off lights to indicate someone was home and grabbed my revolver. I eventually saw them walk away and get into a van across the street and take off. I don’t believe they were going door-to-door selling Girl Scout cookies.

Before I moved to Oklahoma, I had someone on FOTM threaten my life. The threat was very credible and I filed a complaint with the local Sheriff and the feds. I lived alone at the time and was very concerned for my safety.

This womyn couldn’t be more wrong about believing that we girls who like firearms for protection are dreaming of a standoff. I don’t believe she actually knows a woman who owns firearms.

I could have a conversation with her and explain about my firearm training and why I believe it’s an equalizer for me, the extended periods of time I may be alone, and the criminal elements that live in my neighborhood.

But that would involve her actually listening to MY opinions and trusting that I know what’s best for ME.

Plus I don’t think get I’d get too far in a conversation with a womyn who believes that unplanned pregnancies are always men’s fault because condoms are more readily available than the pill.

You cannot win a debate up against “liberal logic.”

Update: In typical progressive fashion, this womyn muted her thread. Shocker, not.

Pregnant woman protects family with an AR-15; one perp dead

Score one for the Second Amendment.

From Fox News: A Florida woman who was eight-months pregnant and came out wielding an AR-15 rifle reportedly saved her husband and pre-teen daughter last week from a pair of violent intruders who’d broken into the family’s home — with the gun-toting matriarch fatally striking one of the men, who was later found dead in a nearby ditch.

Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, 25 miles southeast of Tampa, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night when two armed men, wearing masks and hoods, broke inside.

“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King told Bay News 9. “I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’ and they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”

King said one of the burglars pistol-whipped him and another kicked him in the head, creating a commotion that attracted the attention of his wife, who walked into the room to see what the noise was — and soon found herself dodging a bullet.

The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said of his wife. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

The man was later found dead in the ditch, according to the news outlet. The other burglar fled when his friend was shot.

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me,” King said, noting he suffered a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity and a concussion, and needed “20 stitches and three staples in my head.”

Neither of the intruders was publicly identified by authorities.
—————————-

And because the media can’t let facts get in the way of their narratives, CNN reported that the woman used an “automatic rifle” to shoot the intruders. They corrected their error two hours later.

Arizona homeowner shoots, kills intruder, injures another: “Better come in ready”

At least one taxpayer relief shot successful delivered.

From Fox News: An Arizona homeowner shot and killed a suspected intruder and injured another man when the duo tried to break into a house Saturday, police said.

Michael Ahumada, 34, was killed when he and another unidentified man tried to break into a home in Phoenix just after 1 a.m. Saturday, police told FOX10 Phoenix.

“That’s when the homeowner shot them. One of them passed away from their injuries and the other was taken to the hospital,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Jamie Rothschild said, adding that anyone with information regarding the incident should contact authorities.

The man who was injured in the incident was said to be in critical but stable condition as of Saturday.

The homeowner told AZFamily.com in a brief interview that he won’t hesitate to defend himself again in a future break-in.

“If they come in… [they] better come in ready,” the homeowner said.

Federal judge strikes down California’s ban on “high-capacity” magazines

A voice of reason in CA: Judge Benitez

The judge was born in Cuba and appointed by GWB.

From Daily Mail: A federal judge declared California’s ban on high-capacity gun magazines over 10 rounds as unconstitutional on Friday, following a lawsuit by the state’s arm of the National Rifle Association.

On Friday San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez ruled the law against high-capacity gun magazines was unconstitutional, blocking the state from enforcing the voter-approved ban outlined California’s Proposition 63.

The proposition was made to prevent the use of such magazines, which are often used in mass shootings and passed on the November 8, 2016 ballot.

California law has prohibited buying or selling of magazines with over 10 rounds since 2000, but those who had them before then were allowed to keep them.

In 2016, the Legislature and voters approved a law removing that provision.

The California arm of the National Rifle Association then sued and Benitez sided with the group’s argument that banning the magazines infringes on the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

He cited stories of three women confronted by armed intruders in their homes. The woman with a high capacity magazine was able to kill an intruder and call for help, while the two other women ran out of bullets.

‘Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts,’ Benitez wrote in his 86-page order as he declared the law to be unconstitutional, granting a summary judgement in favor of gun owner Virginia Duncan and the California Pistol & Rifle Association.

Benitez cited the stories of three women who were at their homes in Florida and Georgia and were shot by gun-weilding intruders who broke into their homes. He suggested that the women were unable to stop the assailants because they had lower capacity guns to defend themselves.

You say high capacity; I say standard and necessary!

In one case a pajama-clad woman who had a high-capacity magazine attached to her weapon was able to take on three armed intruders, while simultaneously calling for help on her phone.

In the other two cases the women without additional ammunition ran out of bullets.

‘She had no place to carry an extra magazine and no way to reload because her left hand held the phone with which she was still trying to call 911,’ the judge wrote, saying she killed one attacker while two escaped.

Chuck Michel, an attorney for the NRA and the California Rifle & Pistol Association, said the judge’s latest ruling may go much farther by striking down the entire ban, allowing individuals to legally acquire high-capacity magazines for the first time in nearly two decades.

‘We’re still digesting the opinion but it appears to us that he struck down both the latest ban on possessing by those who are grandfathered in, but also said that everyone has a right to acquire one,’ Michel said.

Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement that his office is ‘committed to defending California’s common sense gun laws’ and is reviewing the decision and evaluating its next steps.

‘Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts,’ Benitez wrote in his 86-page order as he declared the ban on high capacity magazines to be unconstitutional.
