Lafayette shooting: Another ‘gun-free zone’ failure

A shooting at a Louisiana theater will spark more calls for gun control.

A shooting at a Louisiana theater will spark more calls for gun control.

Shortly after Thursday night’s shooting at the Grand 16 cinema in Lafayette, La., it was revealed that the theater has a no-guns policy, making it off-limits even to legally-licensed citizens to carry defensive sidearms, but that didn’t stop a man identified by authorities as John Russell Houser from carrying a gun inside and opening fire.

Two innocent people were killed before Houser reportedly took his own life. He’s been described as a “drifter” and published reports indicate he had past criminal and mental problems. Continue reading

Gun Shop Owner Declares His Store a ‘Muslim-Free Zone’

gun-storeAndy Hallinan, owner of the Florida Gun Supply, has released a video declaring that in the aftermath of the Chattanooga shootings, he will no longer sell guns to Muslims.  He claims that it his right not to do business with anyone he doesn’t wish to.

I think it will be interesting to see if CAIR and the ACLU sue his shop to force him to sell to Muslims.  The same goes for all those gun grabbing liberal politicians.  This could create quite a quandary for these liberals.  It’s like an environmentalist watching an endangered animal eating a nearly extinct plant.  Who do they root for?

This week’s attack by an alleged Islamic extremist on a military recruiting office in Chattanooga was not the first such attack on soldier on American soil. In spite of a string of attacks on military bases and recruiting offices in the past several years, the Obama Administration several has not taken steps to allow military personnel to carry weapons for self-defense. Today a growing number of state governors are taking action to protect their state National Guardsmen from similar attacks.

According to CNN, there have been at least three successful attacks on military targets in the United States in recent years. In 2009, Carlos Bledsoe killed one soldier and wounded another outside an army recruiting office in Little Rock, Ark. Bledsoe was a convert to Islam who had been arrested in Yemen the year before in possession of a fake ID card, bomb making manuals and a phone that contained contacts with Islamic militants.

Three Issues Soon to be Decided…Part 1

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on CPR Worldwide Media

marriage coverAnd so we wait.

Three important issues will be coming to a head within the next week, two will be decided by the Supreme Court, and one basically by the pen of our traitor-in-chief. In this 3-part series I will go into depth about each possible decision, starting today with how I believe the Supreme Court will rule on the legalities…and it is all about legalities…of ‘same-sex marriage’.

The nine justices have been given the daunting task of ruling in regards to marriage rights specifically if prohibiting ‘same-sex marriage’ violates equal-protection guarantees. And if they follow the words of law, as in “…all men are created equal…” people better get used to NOT the reinterpretation of marriage in the biblical sense but the redefinition of what constitutes a marriage in the legal sense. Continue reading


Tomorrow, Wednesday, June 24th, on RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS on CPR Worldwide Media, from 2 to 4pm EST, Craig and Diane will discuss Obama’s so-wanted gun control in the wake of the Charleston shootings, the upcoming SCOTUS decisions on same-sex marriage and ObamaCare, and Obama’s very bad decision to allow the paying of ransom to the enemy.

Executed by a Madman in a House of God

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on CPR Worldwide Media

root2 victtims“We don’t have all the facts, but we do know that once again innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun.”
– Barack HUSSEIN Obama speaking soon after the Charleston church shooting

By now everyone knows what happened last week when 21-year old madman Dylann Storm Roof executed nine innocent people engaged in a Bible study/prayer meeting at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church (A.M.E.) in Charleston, South Carolina. Corrupting the sanctity of a House of God, Roof was and remains a vile evil racist thug to his very core who was out to kill innocent black people for NO other reason than they were black. There is NO excuse for what he did and while some of the victim’s families have ‘forgiven’ this animal, including the daughter of victim Ethel Lance who said, ”I forgive you…and have mercy on your soul. You hurt me, you hurt a lot of people, but God forgives you, and I forgive you”…I believe that some crimes are beyond the forgivable and this is indeed one of them.

But as horrific as the crime itself was we cannot overlook an equally vile crime…the crime of politicizing this tragedy…of trying to garner political fodder off the tears of those who lost loved ones on that most dark of days. Continue reading

Gun control battle heats in Oregon

Oregon liberals want to add another gun control measure but gun owners are fighting back.

Oregon liberals want to add another gun control measure but gun owners are fighting back.

Liberal Oregon lawmakers are pushing a so-called “universal background check” measure, Senate Bill 941, but in a marathon seven-hour public hearing Wednesday in Salem, Second Amendment activists pushed back.

According to published reports, gun rights advocates testified that this proposed law would have little to no chance of preventing violent crimes. On the other hand, it appears to be a disguised effort toward gun registration in the same way that last year’s Initiative 594 is an attempt to expand the state pistol registry in neighboring Washington.

According to the Salem Statesman-Journal, Kevin Starrett, executive director of the Oregon Firearms Federation, put it bluntly: “No matter what the public is told about how many criminals are prevented from getting guns because of background checks, the most cursory examination of Oregon State Police data proves beyond any doubt that this is simply not true.” Continue reading

Anti-gunners didn’t see genuine grassroots coming in WA

WA - Brian Judy crowdEvergreen State gun prohibitionists eager to build on their gun control victory with the passage of Initiative 594 last November never saw this one coming: Genuine grassroots gun rights activists derailed a nasty piece of legislation in Olympia that would have opened the door wide for abuse of someone’s Second Amendment rights.

House Bill 1857 was all-but-a-sure-thing until angry Second Amendment activists decided to fight back by flooding Olympia with phone calls and e-mails. Testimony during hearings on the measure was devastating.

Sponsored by Democratic State Rep. Laurie Jinkins, HB 1857 was dubbed the “Extreme Risk Protection Orders” bill. It was aimed at allowing firearms seizures from people who allegedly posed a danger to themselves or others, based on what critics worried could be the flimsiest of information. Continue reading

Texas man arrested over toy gun at State Hearing

Austin, Texas — The Open Carry/Constitutional Carry issue in Texas has been a hot-button issue for a long time. When we received word of a new GoFundMe account for a defense fund for an arrest in February, we did some checking. On February 12, a member of Texas Open Carry,  Travis Kuenstler, 34, was arrested for Criminal Trespass just prior to a hearing on the issue,  after he attempted to bring a toy gun into the hearing. Travis is a US Marine veteran (1999-2002).


Travis Kuenstler is arrested by Texas DPS


Mr. Kuenstler was told that he could not take the plastic gun into the hearing room. When he questioned the legality of the statement, he was arrested for Criminal Trespass.

“The DPS troopers told him he couldn’t have that in here. He questioned what the legality of that is and when he asked for the law, the DPS trooper arrested him just for asking him what law he’s breaking… We’re now afraid of cap guns? What kind of society [have] we become?” Open Carry Texas founder, C.J. Grisham

Wash. gun control advocates move to intervene in lawsuit v. I-594

Supporters of Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure in Washington State that was passed by voters last fall – and  is now subject of a federal lawsuit spearheaded by the Second Amendment Foundation – have filed a motion in federal district court to intervene in the case…as defendants.

The federal lawsuit was filed Dec. 30 by the SAF and several other groups and private individuals, including Joe Waldron, legislative director for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Participants in the motion are Cheryl Stumbo of Seattle, the primary individual sponsor of the initiative, the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility and Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund. They cite as their reason for intervention to “ensure that the interests of the voters who approved I-594 are fully represented.”
