postheadericon A Terrorist Set Off A Bomb In A NYC Subway This Morning, And He’s The One With The Worst Injuries

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK — In a attempt at what appears to have been a failed suicide bombing, a 27-year-old terrorist suspect is in custody in a Manhattan hospital after sustaining injuries from his homemade bomb that partially detonated inside a subway terminal this morning.

The suspect, Akayed Ullah, set off his device in a subway passage around 7:30am during rush hour. Three people are reported to have received minor injuries, but the brunt of the force was taken by the terrorist himself. After police subdued him, he was taken to the hospital with some minor burns and lacerations.

His homemade device was said to be strapped to his body via zip ties and Velcro.

NBCNews.com reports;

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the explosion an “attempted terror attack” and said there were no additional known incidents.

“Thank God the perpetrator did not achieve his ultimate goals. Thank God our first responders were there so quickly to address the situation,” de Blasio said. He called the situation “incredibly unsettling” for New Yorkers, 6 million of whom rely on the subway for their commutes every day.

Law enforcement officials said the device either went off prematurely or only partially detonated,

Former NYPD commissioner Bill Bratton said preliminary information indicated that the explosion was carried out in the name of the Islamic State.

Luckily, this terrorist failed in his attempt to create death and destruction, as this incident could have been much worse than it was. Having an attack inside the subway system is a scary thought, and seeing the police acting so quickly and with such bravery in the face of this terrorist incident is something that lets us know that New York City is always ready to rush in when it is required.

The above photo was taken of the suspect after being in police custody. If we could see his face, we would see the face of defeat and embarrassment.

A video of the incident can be seen below. After the explosion, the person seen lying on the ground is the terrorist suspect, probably very upset that he’s still alive.

Being a target for terrorists, New York City is one of the most –if not the most– resilient places on the planet. New Yorkers will not cower in the face of these individuals who look to destroy and disrupt their way of life.

We hope that the three injured people are able to make quick recoveries.

And, we hope that this surviving suspect is charged and convicted, and sentenced to the maximum penalty available under the law.

postheadericon This Young Woman Used A Concealed Carry Method That’s… Not Recommended

By John Boch via The Truth About Guns

Deep concealment took on a whole new meaning in McLean County, Illinois on Friday. Police stopped a 20-year-old Missouri woman, Amika Witt (above), for doing 90 on I-55 at 5:00a.m. During the traffic stop, police became suspicious. During a search, cops found heroin in Ms Witt’s bra and Ecstasy in some other unspecified location on her person. But the surprises didn’t stop there.

Later, when corrections staff processed her into the county jail, they discovered a fully loaded Kimber CDP .380 pistol concealed in her vagina.

While one might think vaginal carry would be dangerous (not to mention awfully uncomfortable), it does provide deep concealment. At the same time, it probably doesn’t do so much for the gun’s finish.

In fact, there are probably lots of good reasons not to tuck a firearm into any body cavity. Especially a pistol with some sharp edges like the Kimber .380.

As a result of her failed concealment efforts, Ms. Witt now faces a slew of bonus criminal charges.

The Bloomington Pantagraph has the details:

Witt is charged with armed violence for possessing a weapon during the alleged commission of a felony and while in possession of drugs, and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

A passenger in the car, Clinton McDonald, 29, of Springfield, Mo., was charged with unlawful possession of heroin with intent to deliver the drug, and unlawful possession of Ecstasy.

After Witt was taken to the McLean County jail, a female correctional officer found the Kimber .380 caliber handgun inside the suspect’s body, said Roberts. The gun had a fully loaded magazine and “a bullet in the chamber ready to fire,” said the prosecutor.

Fortunately, Ms. Witt didn’t suffer an accidental discharge in her clandestine pistol-packing. We’d probably name her our irresponsible gun owner of the day, but she has enough to deal with now with all of those felony charges. Just to be safe, though, someone should really remind her of the first rule of gun safety: never point a firearm in an unsafe direction.

postheadericon Is A Glock(s) Gen 5 Coming This Month? Quite Possibly…

The rumor mill is buzzing with a new release, or releases, of a Gen 5 Glock… or… Glocks.

It’s widely unknown whether the rumors are true, but we do have a little information to go on.

From Outdoorhub.com;

A photo posted by a law enforcement officer to the Glock Talk forums shows a slip marked “Gen 5,” and the officer claims he was able to pre-order a Glock 17 Gen 5 through his dealer. The photo of the pre-order slip can be seen below:

There isn’t a picture of any new Glocks floating around and even if there were, we’d wait for official confirmation from Glock themselves before posting. Because as we know, rumors are just that.

But to add a little more fuel, another little tidbit was released around the same time, and it deals with a Glock event.

Posted by Royal Range USA on Monday, August 14, 2017

If there is a launch party, we weren’t invited. *keeping tears inside while slowly dying in a quiet corner all alone*

When (if) the news drops, we’ll let you know as soon as we do. Hopefully, we’ll be all happy soon with a signed NDA *cough* GLOCK *cough* but until then, enjoy the rumors.

SUBMIT YOUR #DIGTHERIG | SEE MORE SUBMISSIONS HERE

I carry from 1 to all 3 (max rig) of the following.

S&W 442 .38 Spec. in a pocket holster

Beretta Nano 9MM in an Outbags IWB brown leather holster

Sig Sauer P 238 .380 w/ laser in an ankle strap holster

What all of these have in common, they are highly concealable, very reliable, easily available ammo calibers, and I can shoot them very accurately. Very comfortable with carrying any or all of these, depending on the clothing. However, the .38 in the pocket is my most carried, because of the ease of carry. Need a quick run for milk and eggs, just put it in the pocket and go.

postheadericon Craigslist Deal Goes South, Two Armed Thugs No Match For This Armed Citizen

CYPRESS, TX — A pair of thugs who attempted an armed robbery against a man trying to sell a phone on Craigslist have been apprehended after their attempt at robbery went wrong, all thanks to an armed citizen.

As The Woodlands Patch reports:

Harris County Precinct 4 Deputy Constables were called to the 23900 block of Creek Ridge Drive in after residents in the area reported hearing gunshots. When deputies arrived, they found a black man, identified as Derek Cooper with two gunshot wounds to his abdomen.

Investigators learned that the person who shot Cooper was trying to sell him a cellphone he’d advertised on Craigslist. The victim met with Cooper and a juvenile at that location for the exchange of the phone for money, when suddenly the juvenile pointed a handgun at the complainant and demanded all his money.

The victim handed over the phone and money, and then the juvenile and Cooper demanded all he had in his vehicle. The man told investigators he went to his car, grabbed his own handgun and fired two rounds, hitting Cooper twice.

The juvenile reported made a run for it, but was quickly apprehended by police officers in the area. He was arrested, charged with robbery, and was sent to a juvenile detention center.

Cooper was also charged with robbery, but he had a trip to the hospital to make first, before he could go to jail.

That’s the last deal these two will make for some time.

postheadericon Your Bond With Your Carry Gun Should Look Something Like This

Loving the firearm that you carry is great. Knowing the firearm that you carry is essential.

There should be a bond between firearm and concealed carrier, and it should remain strong at all times. Sound funny? It’s not meant to. Knowing how you interact with your firearm, and how it interacts with you, is an extremely important part of successfully carrying that firearm.

Hold it close

Each pistol available to the public has a different feel. Generally, we decide on the perfect carry firearm by the way it feels in our hand. It’s not 100% of the reason, but it should be a huge deciding factor. After all, we don’t want to be practicing with something that’s continuously uncomfortable and doesn’t fit our hand. That’d be silly.

Know what to feed it

Some pistols are picky with what they eat. If you haven’t been shooting the same ammunition at the range as what you carry each day, you don’t have a good bond with your firearm. Making sure that the ammo you carry is properly fed through your firearm is a must, and I don’t mean just a few rounds. Take it through the paces and really feed it your carry ammo. I know it can sometimes be expensive, but I’d rather make sure my pistol eats the ammo instead of finding out that it chokes in front of the bad guy.

Let it breathe, but keep it secure

We’re talking about retention here. This bond is between yourself, the firearm and the holster you choose to carry. Retention is an important part of any carry system, and you don’t want that retention to be too strong or not strong enough. Your draw should be practiced daily, not only for muscle memory, but also to make sure that your holster is still in tip-top shape. For example, if a screw on your holster loosens up, it could change the retention drastically. That’s not good if you’re out and about, so be mindful of your retention each day.

Know how it feels and what it does when you sit down, lean over, or any other movements that you make. It should stay close at all times and show no signs of ever leaving you. It’s love, really.

Keep it clean

After each trip to the range, I like to give my firearm a good cleaning. Some call this overkill, but I call it cleanliness. It simply comes down to regular maintenance, because we all know that if we take care of things, they’re generally going to last longer than if they’re neglected.

Know how it handles

With your carry firearm, you should know exactly how it feels while you shoot your self-defense ammo. You should know exactly how much recoil there will be and you should know exactly when the trigger is going to break. You should also be aware of any malfunctions and if one is found, it should be fixed as soon as possible, before you ever carry it again.

KNOW IT

You shouldn’t have any surprises with your carry firearm. You should be in-tune with it and know exactly what to expect when handling it. And, if something goes wrong, being able to remedy the issue is important as well.

This is your baby, and potentially your life-line if you ever need to use it for self-defense. Having that understanding is an important step to successful carry.

Some people laugh when I say “Have a bond with your firearm”, and all I can do is sit back and hope the advice is taken.

The conclusion? Don’t just purchase your concealed carry firearm and throw it on your hip. Use it, learn about it, understand it. With that, you’ll be confident and ready.

postheadericon In A Shocking Discovery, This “No Firearms” Sign Failed To Prevent A Mass Shooting Over The Weekend

CINCINNATI, OHIO — With no arrests and one dead, a total of 16 people were injured inside a nightclub early Sunday morning. The shooting happened at Cameo nightclub in Cincinnati just after 1 am, and police believe that multiple people were responsible for firing the shots.

In a photo taken at the scene, seen above, the Gun Free Zone sign was of little influence to the multiple people who brought guns into the establishment.

Police say that numerous people at the bar got into an argument which eventually escalated into gunfire. The man who was killed, 27-year-old O’Bryan Spikes, was a father and college student who frequented the bar.

“There’s no reason that anyone should ever feel like they could go into a club, shoot a club up, because they’re upset with someone who disrespected them or otherwise hurt them earlier in the day,” Cincinnati Councilwoman Yvette Simpson said. “So I continue to say, yes, guns kill people, but people kill people.”

The club isn’t a stranger to violence, having experienced shootings in the past. That may be why the ‘No Guns’ sign hangs in the door, but we all know it’s just a piece of paper and a warning.

The club is even said to wand people as they enter, but somehow multiple firearms were still brought in.

Is it me, or do gun free zones simply not work?

postheadericon What Could Ever Make A Father Shoot His Own Son? This.

MACON COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA — A son with a criminal record a mile long. A father trying to protect himself. These are some of the conditions surrounding the recent shooting of 25-year-old Danny Thomas by his own father.

According to the Macon County Sheriff’s Office’s statement to WLOS News, Thomas’ father discovered him trying to steal gas from his vehicle. When the father confronted his son, the son got violent and allegedly grabbed him by the beard. The son went further and took out a knife.

“The son then grabbed his father by the facial area and also displayed a knife according to his father. We were able to retrieve a knife at the scene,” Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland told News 13.

The father, fearing for his life, took out a 9mm handgun and shot his son once in the abdomen. The Sheriff’s Office arrived at the scene and took D.J. to a nearby hospital where he remains under close guard.

The Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Thomas was scheduled to show up in court over a breaking and entering and larceny charge. He has multiple prior convictions and law enforcement told the news that they were very familiar with Thomas’ prior criminal activities.

It’s unconfirmed whether or not drugs or alcohol played a role in the altercation but the Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the matter.

It’s a tragic thing when a son strays so far from the path of being a law-abiding citizen that he sees his own family as potential prey to his criminal exploits. How many times had his father already been forced to defend himself and his own family from his son?

If so ever there were conditions whereby a father would feel compelled to use deadly force against his own son, this certainly would be it. It’s sad but necessary. The alternative promises only a limited life full of more pain and misery.

We can’t all choose the paths our children go down but we may take full responsibility for our own safety and defense. And, in cases like this, it’s all the more necessary to do so when violence is already unavoidable.
