postheadericon NYC Not Renewing Concealed Carry Permits, And No Reason Is Given

By John Farnam from www.defense-training.com

I conducted a Defensive Handgun Course recently for a group of students, all of whom live and work in NYC. We did the Course itself at an outdoor range in NJ. Several of my students (via past political connections) actually had CCW permits issued by the NYPD, nearly impossible to get, but they were very concerned about keeping them.

The sub-department that issues these permits has been fraught with scandal, one right after another. Several higher-ups have been indicted for accepting bribes [to issue permits]. Corruption is rampant and decades old.

Reacting to criticism, the current mayor’s predictable reaction has been to direct the NYPD to even further reduce the minuscule number of permits currently valid.

Hence, many NYC permit-holders, including several of my students, have received letters indicating that their city-issued CCW permits will not be renewed. No reason given. No wrongdoing, real or imagined, on the part of disenfranchised CCW permit holders.Their precipitous castration is completely arbitrary.

Those of us who live in states where CCW permits are easy to get (in fact, taken for granted) find the degrading contempt in which NYC residents are held by the city government (all liberal Democrats) astonishing, and frightening, particularly since NY’s current governor and NYC’s current mayor have both indicated a desire to run for president.

My students, all successful professionals, expressed an abiding contempt for NYC’s entrenched liberals, and pointed out that they stay in power via:

1) Imposing guns laws so voluminous, incomprehensible, arbitrarily enforced, and requiring paperwork that constitutes a full-time job in itself, that being “law-abiding” in NYC is probably impossible. In any event, one could never know if he was of not. What are supposed to be “rights” (and are for the rest of us) in NYC are “privileges,” enjoyed only by the ruling elite and their supporters.

The liberal ruling elite can thus terrorize citizens who dare speak-out against them, by withholding “privileges” and arbitrarily charging them with technical offenses. The euphemism is “selective enforcement.” That means their political opponents must exactingly obey the law (as noted above, an impossibility), but they and their supporters don’t.

2) The maintenance and expansion of a vast and permanent “underclass,” (including many violent criminals whom liberals put to good use in coercing unarmed political opponents) from which there is no escape, and whose votes can be dependably purchased with taxpayer dollars, or terrorized out of them.

Among liberals, the foregoing represents “The Golden Rule.”

postheadericon Homeowner Tries Reason But Intruder Wants Violence — Careful What You Wish For

SEMINOLE COUNTY, FLORIDA — One homeowner was forced to defend himself when a young man charged at him from the bushes. Thankfully, he was armed.

According to WESH 2 News, the homeowner detected an intruder trying to break into his home late at night. He armed himself and went out to confront the suspect. The intruder retreated to a thick bush on his front lawn. Not wanting to take chances, the homeowner fired once and warned the intruder to come out.

The intruder thought this must be his opportunity to act. Fight or flight. He chose fight. He chose wrong.

“I heard a couple big booms and didn’t know what it was, and my dogs started barking,” said Hamrick. “I came out on the porch and saw a young man in the road. An old gentleman I know who lives across the street said, ‘Please call the cops. Call the cops.’”

The homeowner says that the intruder tried to charge him from beneath the concealment of the bushes. He shot him repeatedly in the legs, neutralizing the threat. When a neighbor came out, he saw the homeowner standing over the suspect, holding him at gunpoint.

Seminole County Sheriff’s Office arrived and took the suspect to a hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been filed against the homeowner.

The suspect has not been identified.

In the neighbor’s account to WESH 2 News, he says he has lived in that neighborhood for thirty years and this is the first time he’s run into this type of activity. As someone who covers a lot of these stories, let me tell you that’s a very common sentiment.

For those who have lived in an area for a long time, this fresh wave of new crime may come as a surprise. The best way to solve it is by making your community a hard target to hit. If a neighborhood gets a reputation for being tough on crime, you can expect criminals to be less than enthusiastic about planning their next heist there.

Defend your neighborhood from thugs. Carry at home, carry everywhere.
