"The armed Good Samaritan was said to be fully cooperating with the investigation. Detectives have consulted with the State Attorney’s office and no charges are expected to be filed against him."

As it should be.

All the Rest of the Weapons / Windham Weaponry 7.62x39 Review
« Last post by Taurian on August 05, 2018, 11:08:15 AM »
Well, here it is! The long-awaited, much-anticipated review of the “Windham Weaponry 7.62×39 SRC” Model: R16M4FTT-762 review. There is no need to hold your breath any longer!

Of course, I am kidding. I doubt rather the review was long-awaited or much anticipated, let alone known about.

Anyway, this will be my last review for a while.  Work that actually pays is demanding more of my time and attention. So, there is going to be a long dry spell of reading reviews from me.

I hope that you enjoy the read: http://guntoters.com/blog/2018/08/05/windham-weaponry-7-62x39-src/

Everything Else / Re: Is a Parking Space Worth...

If you are carrying a deadly defense weapon, it is your moral duty to avoid confrontations, almost at any cost. You are not a cop, so don't act like one.

This fool confronted a driver because she had parked illegally. Then her "boyfriend," the unmarried father of her children, started a physical fight with the fool. At that point, we have at least two fools. Maybe three.

It is not your job to play parking monitor, nor is it your job to correct someone else's morals. Remember that you are carrying a deadly weapon, and that it should come into play only in an unavoidable emergency. Therefore, it is up to you to avoid confrontation, thereby to avoid creating emergencies.

The "boyfriend" got what he deserved. Now the shooter will get his own comeuppance when the "girlfriend" takes him to civil court seeking damages.
She may not win her case, but it will surely—and appropriately—bankrupt the shooter.

I almost agree with you, but I don’t think being shoved to the ground is justifiable for shooting another, based on the video in my mind that’s not a deadly threat so? I can’t say “the boyfriend got what he deserved” was he a fool? Possibly, but that’s shouldn’t be a death sentence, was the guy that was yelling at someone for illegally parking probably, but doesn’t give him the right to yell at her, like you stated, he’s not a cop, and he’s carrying a deadly weapon, I do believe. There is 3 fools here! First the woman for taking a handicap spot that a real handicapped person might have needed, the 2nd the one how pulled and shot another because he knocked him to the ground, and the 3rd is the one who shoved him to the ground, when he took a argument to shoving, the sad ending is All involved have a life changing effect, and can never be undone

Those that choose to carry a firearm, as you also stated need to avoid potential dangers at all cost! I as a proud man have bitten my tongue and turned and walked away, even though I was in the right, just because I might be right, still is not justified in a shooting

I truly hope I never need shoot another, and hope everyone that also chooses to carry has the same hopes

  Here in South West Florida, schools are to have armed guards ready to protect our children in case of an active shooter. School starts next week and so far it seems that we are ready. Nobody is ready more than Polk County IMHO. The Sheriff there, a Mr. Grady Judd put out this message to his school resource officers:"If you encounter an active shooter that has come to our schools to do harm to our children you are to shoot them graveyard dead!" "Period."

  To give my friends here some prospective of this man let me add this that was written not long ago: It was reported earlier that some dirt-bag who was pulled over in a routine traffic stop here in Florida, ended up "executing" the deputy who stopped him.

  The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range.

  Another deputy was wounded and a police dog was killed.

  A statewide manhunt was ensued. The low-life piece of human garbage was found hiding in a wooded area with his gun.  SWAT team members fired and hit said low life 68 times.

  Now here's the kicker: Asked "Why did they shoot him 68 times?" At a press meeting with the Orlando Sentinal... get this, Sheriff Judd replied, "Because that's all the bullets that we had."

 GOD BLESS SHERIFF GRADY JUDD!

Michigan –  The Michigan Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling on July 27, 2018 with the media and RBKAs Orgs reporting that by them upholding the previous court ruling that K-12 schools can ban firearms from their schools.  Michigan Open Carry  https://miopencarry.org/    who was a party in the suit is saying “hold on a minute!” You can read what Michigan Open Carry is putting out on the ruling at
https://miopencarry.org/news/2018/07/No-The-SCoM-Did-Not-Say-That-Schools-Can-Ban-Guns
You can read the court opinion at
http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/agopinions/MISupremeCt_FirearmInSchools.pdf
For now the Courts have given Schools the right to make Policy banning the open carrying of  firearms from their  premises. State Law already makes Concealed Carry illegal on K-12 Property.   

West Virginia State Police –  West Virginia is my home state. Been living here since I was born at the middle of the last century. That makes me OLD!   Our State Police will not update their website which lists states which WV honors and who honors them.  If you go to the listing at  https://www.wvsp.gov/Criminal%20Records/Pages/Concealed-Weapon-Permit-Reciprocity.aspx   you will see that they are stating the  five states listed at the bottom  are not honored by WV. Well they are!  I have emailed them more than once and nothing gets changed.  People looking at www.handgunlaw.us and then the link I did have to the WVSP Listing would email me saying Handgunlaw.us is incorrect.  You could click on Contact us at  the bottom of the WVSP Listing and drop them an email. If you do  please be nice and just tell them their listing is out of date big time.  I have found out if you make them work reading your emails and they have to read a lot of them they will fix it so they don’t have that work to do!  Yes WV is permitless carry but they still honor permits and it makes a difference as WITHOUT a permit WV honors if they drive onto K-12 School property with a loaded firearm they are an instant Felon! Us with valid permits can do that. Another stupid law but that is the law until it is changed.

Massachusetts  -  Part I, Title XX, Chapter 140: Section 131J

Sections 131¾, 131K and 131P shall not apply to stun guns. The secretary of public safety and security shall promulgate regulations restricting access or use of stun guns by non-licensed persons and establishing minimum safety and quality standards, safe storage requirements, education and safety training requirements and law enforcement training on the appropriate use of stun guns, which shall require that any stun gun purchased or used by a law enforcement or public safety official include a mechanism for tracking the number of times the stun gun has been fired.    (Above is the new wording for this section after the Supreme Court Ruling saying they couldn’t ban them. The link will still show the old text of the law until they updated it.  Those with a valid permit to carry in Mass can carry a stun gun also but I look for Mass to put on a lot of restrictions through Administrative Rules and they will most likely even throw in the kitchen sink along with the fridge for good measure covering those who don’t have a permit to carry a concealed firearm in Mass!!!! Other states still have bans on the books and watching to see what they do with them after the SCOTUS ruling.) https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartI/TitleXX/Chapter140/Section131J
A couple Items worth mentioning!!!

Stephen Wenger  http://spw-duf.info/  sent me this awhile back and I believe it needs shared:              Everyone knows that dogs have a great sense of smell. Most people know that they can detect drugs. Fewer people perhaps know that they are also capable, it is said, of using their noses to sniff out guns. But D.C. police reported an example of this on Tuesday. According to the police a car had failed to heed a stop sign around 5:15 p..m. on Monday in in the 1200 block of Neal Street, in the Trinidad area of Northeast [Washington]. Police stopped the car. As reported by the police, the driver turned out to have a valid license. But it happened, police [said], that one of their specially trained dogs was at the scene. The dog, according to a police account, gave a signal that indicated the presence of a gun. The police said that a gun was indeed found in the car. They said they made an arrest on a charge of carrying a pistol [without] a license.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) – Over the years the TSA has stated that only the Passenger checking the firearm should have a key or combination of the lock on a hard sided case when declared in checked baggage when flying.  This is true but there have been many debates over the years with some stating that only TSA approved Locks could be use and others saying any lock would do.  The argument has been settled as the TSA is now stating in writing the following.      “You may use any brand or type of lock to secure your firearm case, including TSA-recognized locks.”  You can see that on their site at https://www.tsa.gov/travel/transporting-firearms-and-ammunition

This morning I posted a review of the Remington 870 Home Defense shotgun that I hope you will read.

I have one more review up my sleeve, the "Windham Weaponry 7.62x39 SRC" that I will be posting Sunday, the 5th of August or so.

After that, it will be a long dry spell for reading a review of any firearm from me.

Multiple writing projects, for which I am paid, are taking a toll on my time and what acuity of mind I have left. Firearm and related reviews will need to take a back seat for awhile.
