More Than 1,700 Red Flag Orders in 2018: Law allows for temporary seizure of firearms from those deemed a threat to themselves or others

More than 1,700 court orders to temporarily seize guns from people deemed a threat to themselves or others across more than a dozen states were issued last year, according to an Associated Press report published this week. Red Flag laws became the most popular gun legislation at the state level, surpassing permitless or “constitutional” carry, after the murder of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Fla., last year. Florida, Delaware, New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Vermont all passed versions of the law in the past year. Connecticut, California, Indiana, Washington, and Oregon already…

Police Are Seizing Cars At State-Licensed Marijuana Dispensaries

Police are seizing cars because their owners visit legal, state-licensed marijuana dispensaries. A lawsuit alleges that Michigan sheriff’s deputies are watching dispensaries for cars to confiscate. Police are seizing cars because the owners are carrying as little as $10 worth of marijuana, Reason claims. Furthermore, Wayne County, Michigan is demanding car owners pay a $1,200 fine to get their vehicles back. Police are still seizing cars in Wayne County (Detroit) even though the government has “decriminalized” marijuana there. For example, sheriff’s deputies seized and impounded Crystal Sisson’s car because she was carrying $10 worth of legal marijuana. Police Are Seizing…

On Saturday, more than 60 police officers and officials raided a children’s Bible class in an underground church in southern China. The Rongguili Church, in Guangzhou, was raided at about 10 a.m. Saturday; the third prominent but unregistered Protestant church to be closed down by the Chinese government in recent days, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported. “Halfway through the children’s Bible class, we heard the footsteps of dozens of police and officials stomping up the stairs,” an unidentified Rongguili church member said, according to SCMP. “They read out law enforcement notices declaring our venue was an illegal gathering [that engaged in] illegal publishing and illegal fundraising and confiscated all Bibles.”…

New York City Tries To Destroy Family Bookstore With Landmark Status

New York City bureaucrats are trying to destroy one of the Big Apple’s last bookstores with landmark status. Remarkably, the Strand bookstore’s owners think that landmark status will destroy their family business. “Please do not destroy the Strand by adding more bureaucracy and unnecessary expenses and restrictions,” owner Nancy Bass Wyden begs. Wyden made her plea to New York’s Landmarks Preservation Commission, The Guardian reports. “In an attempt to preserve history, you may very well end up destroying a piece of the city,” Wyden alleges. Wyden firmly believes that landmark status will put her family’s 90-year-old bookstore out of business. How…

WATCH: Innocent Man Politely Asks Cops for Directions—Who Then Smash His Face In and Kidnap Him

Buffalo, NY — Practicing your First Amendment right to free speech, in the land of the free, can and will get you beaten, kidnapped, or worse. As the body camera video below illustrates, you can be polite and courteous but when a raging cop snaps—and then lies about what happens—there is very little you can do to protect yourself. Nicholas H. Belsito had committed no crime, had harmed no one, and was merely tailgating at a Bills game last year when he was savagely attacked by police, his nose broken, and blood gushing from his face. And it all began…

An estimated 505 million Christians face persecution for following their faith, a Catholic NGO Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) report indicated this week. “For simply belonging to the wrong religion, countless numbers of people have been killed; many others have disappeared and still more have been imprisoned indefinitely,” John Pontifex, the report’s editor-in-chief, said. On Thursday, a press release on the 14th edition of ACN’s Religious Freedom in the World Report, which…

The birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr., appears to be reverting back to the 1950’s. A recent appeals court ruling reveals that Montgomery, Alabama judges and police are allowed to give indigent people two choices to pay for traffic tickets. One, they can wash police cars and clean courtrooms or two, they can go directly to jail. “This appeal requires us to decide whether two municipal judges enjoy absolute judicial immunity and a mayor and two police chiefs enjoy qualified immunity from a complaint alleging claims of peonage and false imprisonment.? “The complaint alleges that the city of Montgomery, aggressively…

Democrat Stacey Abrams Admits Her Plans May Require Georgians to ‘Turn Their Guns In’

During a November 4 appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) admitted that a possible outcome of her gun control plans could be that “people would turn their guns in.” She said other options might include “buybacks” and/or “grandfathering in” certain firearms, so current owners could keep them but be barred from selling them or transferring them to other individuals. Abrams began by telling host Jake Tapper that “AR-15s are not necessary on our streets.” She then called for more gun control “semiautomatic weapons” in general. She did not mention that semiautomatic handguns like Glock, Kimber, Ruger,…

“Your Pet Will Be Confiscated!”: A Shocking Glimpse Inside China’s New Social Credit System

Citizens in one Chinese provincial capital can now be permanently blacklisted by China’s Orwellian digital panopticon ‘social credit system’ for simply failing to clean up after their pets. It’s but the latest manifestation of the recently implemented, though long in development, nationwide social scoring credit system where people are ranked and punished or rewarded for their behavior, via The Telegraph: Chinese cities are launching a scoring system for dog owners where anyone found failing to care for their pets could be forced to pay a fine – or even have their dog confiscated.

Cops Savagely Beat Innocent 16yo Boy for Filming them Arrest His Parents, Lie to Cover It Up

A visit to the LA county fair turned into a police brutality nightmare for Christian Aguilar, who was beaten and tased for doing nothing other than filming the police. Now, because someone bravely decided to film that nightmare, the police who caused it are going to trial for their crimes. Three officers with the Pomona Police Department were indicted last year for alleged civil rights violations that occurred during the arrest of then-16-year-old Christian Aguilar. As KTLA reports, a federal prosecutor in the criminal trial of two Pomona police officers charged in a violent encounter with a teenager told jurors Tuesday that a video showing…

Police can violate our rights without fear of being sued

For those of you that claim we don’t live in a police state, I give you this recent Michigan Appeals Court ruling. In 2015, Deputy James Dawson went to Joshua Brennan’s home and knocked on his door trying to obtain a breath sample. When Brennan did not answer, Dawson spent an hour and a half knocking at his doors and windows. Officer Dawson also put crime-scene tape over Brennan’s security cameras to conceal his actions and used his siren and cruiser lights in an attempt to rouse him. When Brennan finally opened his door, officer Dawson forced him to take…
