Florida police draw guns, detain armed fishermen open carrying on pier

Eatgrueldog

“Gun rights advocates are livid after Miami Beach Police on Sunday briefly detained a group of fishermen on a public pier over questions on their holstered handguns.

The anglers, members of Sunshine State gun rights group Florida Carry, are shown in a live-streamed video of the event being interviewed by responding officers who have their sidearms drawn. While the advocates, who were ultimately released after two hours, hold they were within their rights as state law allows for legal open carry while hunting or fishing, police feel they responded within guidelines.

“Given the current climate, if six people show up to a pier in South Beach carrying guns, our citizens expect us to respond promptly and address any potential danger,” Miami Beach Police Chief Daniel Oates told the Miami Herald. “We did so, and I am confident our officers acted appropriately.”

Sounds reasonable enough doesn’t it?

The Attack on “Dixie” in Sports and Music | Abbeville Institute

https://www.abbevilleinstitute.org/blog/the-attack-on-dixie-in-sports-and-music/
Sound was the first victim of the attack on southern heritage. In October 1971, the University of Georgia’s “Dixie Redcoat Marching Band” dropped the word “Dixie” from its name and discontinued playing the song “Dixie” after the National Anthem. Many people, even to this day, will argue that “Dixie” was played and perpetuated to uphold white supremacy. But the tradition goes much further back in college football history, specifically to when the University of Alabama defeated the University of Washington in the 1926 Rose Bowl. The Atlanta Georgian labeled the 1926 Rose Bowl victory as “the greatest victory for the South since the first battle of Bull Run.” The Atlanta Journal argued the football team belonged in the pantheon of Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson: “The Crimson Tide no longer belongs exclusively to Tuscaloosa and the state of Alabama. It belongs to the whole South just like the Stone Mountain Memorial.” In addition, after the Alabama Crimson Tide returned to the Rose Bowl in 1927, the marching band performed the song “Dixie” as the players stormed the field.

What knife just can’t seem to leave my pocket over the last almost two months?

Certainly that title gave you a big clue. The knife just worked for me. This is a knife that consistently stayed sharp, was always ready, and opened with a flick of a thumb on a perfectly placed thumb stud.

Much has been recorded on YouTube, written about, talked about, regarding this knife but the fact of the matter is this is one of the most successful knives ever launched by Ontario.

Bottom line if you are looking for an inexpensive EDC I strongly recommend this knife. For $10 bucks more get the D2 steel and you’ll be glad you did!

Now I offer a terrific and only slightly profane YouTube Video describing the knife and alluding to the New World Order business. Just too funny and fits my sense of humor. Many thanks Advanced Knife…

Myth vs. Fact: DHS Zero-Tolerance Policy

EARL OF TAINT

Release Date:
June 18, 2018

In recent days, we have seen reporters, Members of Congress, and other groups mislead the public on the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) zero-tolerance policy.

Federal law enforcement officers have sworn duties to enforce the laws that Congress passes.  Repeating intentionally untrue and unsubstantiated statements about DHS agents, officers, and procedures is irresponsible and deeply disrespectful to the men and women who risk their lives every day to secure our border and enforce our laws.

Myth

DHS has a policy to separate families at the border.

Fact

DHS does not have a blanket policy of separating families at the border.   However, DHS does have a responsibility to protect all minors in our custody.  This means DHS will separate adults and minors under certain circumstances.  These circumstances include: 1) when DHS is unable to determine the familial relationship, 2) when DHS determines that a child…

UN chief calls for small arms control

“UNITED NATIONS, June 18 (Xinhua) — UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday asked for more efforts to address the thorny issue of regulating and controlling small arms.

“Regulating small arms is a unique challenge. It is not simply a question of addressing government stockpiles. Out of some 900 million small arms in the world, three-quarters are in civilian hands — the majority unlicensed,” Guterres said in a message to a review conference on illicit small arms and light weapons.

Controlling and regulating small arms therefore requires action that goes well beyond national security institutions, he said in the message read by his Chef de Cabinet Maria Viotti. It includes providing alternative livelihoods for former combatants, engaging with municipal governments and police, working with civil society, including grassroots organizations and community violence reduction programs, as well as local businesses.

Solutions must be integrated and holistic. Short-term, compartmentalized projects will not keep…
