  • The 2nd Amendment and well-regulated horses

    The 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution is short and sweet… and confusing only to those who are willing to completely ignore traditional English sentence structure.

    It reads:

    “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

    From that, the pro-gun control folk get the concept that the government has total control over every manner of “arms” that exists. And that these arms only can function within the purview of a “well regulated militia.”

    Let’s take a closer look at that logic with a comparison to another militia necessity.

    The importance of a horse in the 1700-1800s to army personnel was extremely high. It was their transportation, it was their luggage carrier, and if necessary, they could even eat it during a siege. Therefore, it was paramount to know that all the militia could show up with their horse in hand when called upon. So… the Founding Fathers put a clause in the Constitution that read something such as this:

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and ride horses shall not be infringed”

    Now, based upon the interpretations of those who have difficulty understanding English, they would have us believe that only those who belong to the militia have the “right” to keep and ride a horse. No other people do. Not farmers. Not cowboys. Not horse racers. Not teamsters. Not stagecoach companies. Not little girls with their ponies. No one has the “right” to keep and ride a horse except someone who belongs to a “well regulated militia.”

    And furthermore, those who have the “right” to keep and ride a horse must abide by the government regulations as to the particular, allowable breed of horse, the number of legs the horse must have, how old it must be, how tall it can be, the color of its hair, how long the mane can be, whether or not it is male or female, how often you can breed it, and if it is gelded. Not to mention the total number of horses one can buy, keep and ride, who you can buy it from, or the sum total poundage of the herd. Or how fast it can be ridden and how many miles in one trip.

    If this seems exceptionally silly… that is because the basic argument of those who dismiss the 2nd Amendment as only applying to the militia is exceptionally silly. They really know that deep in their heart… which is why they generally just wave their hands and don’t try to actually defend their position.

  • Does Pepper Spray Work Against Wild Animals?

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Let's be honest. Most of us hope to see an animal while hiking so we have a good story to share with our friends when we return. As for anything more than that, well let's avoid that at all costs!

    While encounters are rare in the Inland Northwest, they can happen. Staci Lehman with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife said the best way to stop up close and personal encounters from happening is to be prepared. Lehman recommended hiking in groups, talking, singing or stomping on sticks and leaves extra hard to make your presence known!

    Officials recommend bringing bear spray and keeping it accessible. That means attached to your belt buckle where you can easily grab it should you need to use it. You might not have enough time to dig through your backpack if a bear is charging at you.

    Lehman said that spray can be more effective at times than a firearm because using it requires less steps and you don't need great aim. She said using bear spray takes a few steps: you must remove the safety tab at the top, hold the can with two hands (one on the can, the other on the trigger) and when the bear is within 10 yards of you, press the trigger with your thumb and spray the entire contents on the bears face. Know that bear spray can be effective while encountering other animals too, like a moose or cougar.

    [While we certainly hope that nothing like an animal attack ever happens to our readers, it is best to always be prepared. That's why we have the best two bear sprays available, Guard Alaska® Bear Spray and Mace® Bearspray. Either fit into our easily accessible nylon belt holster. We also have Mace® Canine Repellent for when you are out and about your local neighborhood. You can find these and much more at our web-store, where you can shop in complete confidence and privacy.]

  • Does Pepper Spray Work on Dogs

    TAMPA, Fla. -- A 4-year-old poodle is recovering after five dogs bit and attacked him during an evening walk in Seminole Heights.

    "He has holes and deep ones throughout his body, especially his head, neck, feet and tail," said Brian Choate.

    Brian Choate said he was walking his friend's poodle, Kuro, last week when the attack happened.

    "I saw one dog come firing at me and that dog happened to be a Pit Bull Terrier," said Choate.

    Choate said he was fortunate neighbors came out of their homes and one had pepper spray.

    "Finally, a man came out with some pepper spray. He started just unloading that bottle onto the faces of the dogs," said Choate.

    Choate was also bit by the dogs while he was trying to break up the fight.

    "I found my way home, couple blocks away. I carried Kuro home and was trying to call 911. I could barely see my phone," said Choate.

    Officers took the dogs to Hillsborough County Pet Resources after the owner surrendered his animals following the attack. The dogs are in quarantine.

    Kuro's owner said she has more than $5,000 in veterinary bills. Kuro had surgery after suffering from numerous bite marks. He is on medication.

    "I would implore people, do not just leave your house with man's best friend, a leash and a plastic bag. That's not enough. I learned the hard way," said Choate.

  • Kitty Key Chain Now Legal in Texas

    AUSTIN — A North Texas woman accused of possession of a prohibited weapon for carrying a kitty key chain will not face criminal charges, the Denton County District Attorney's Office said Thursday.

    Kyli Phillips, 22, was arrested in April 2018 after a traffic accident and slapped with the weapons charge after police found the key chain in her purse. These plastic self-defense items are popular with women but have been illegal for decades under a state law that bans brass knuckles.

    In Texas, in 2017, lawmakers eliminated a 145-year-old ban on carrying knives in public. But brass knuckles remained illegal; simply possessing something that fits this description, including plastic "kitty keychains" and other self-defense items, could land Texans with a $4,000 fine and up to a year in jail.

    In 2017, 93 people were convicted under the state's knuckles ban, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

    Democratic Rep. Joe Moody of El Paso filed a bill to undo the knuckles ban, and Gov. Greg Abbott signed it into law in May. It goes into effect Sept. 1.

    Kitty key chains and other similar items will no longer be illegal on Sept. 1, 2019.

    Jamie Beck, the first assistant district attorney in Denton County, confirmed that Phillips was formally charged with possession of an illegal weapon. She appeared in court July 22 and her charges were dropped the next day.

    "I am relieved beyond words!" Phillips told The News Thursday. "I am so thankful that this charge caught the eye of lawmakers, and I am so glad to see these positive changes happening! I feel safe now knowing that I can legally carry this self-defense keychain without fear of repercussion."

  • Three Pit Bulls Attack Elderly Woman

    HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla. — An elderly woman was rushed to the hospital after being attacked by three dogs, Hernando County deputies say.

    A call was received just after 7:30 a.m. Monday that an elderly woman had just been attacked by dogs. Hernando County Fire Rescue, a patrol deputy and an animal enforcement officer were sent to the scene.

    The woman was suffering from severe dog bites on both legs and the caller performed basic first aid.

    The woman who was attacked was treated on scene by HCFR and then airlifted to a trauma center.

    Deputies say she had been walking on Spring Lake Highway when the dogs attacked. When deputies and animal enforcement arrived and tried to get the dogs, at least one of them attempted to attack the officers.

    “I see her walking everyday," said neighbor Yvonne Woods. "Now, that really hurts me to know that she got attacked like that. But I will be praying for her for a speedy recovery because it could have been me or some of my family.”

    Owner Ralph Hughes was cited for public nuisance animal (second offense) and unrestrained animal, three counts each.

    "I couldn't believe it because they were so good with people," said Hughes. "I love my babies."

    Hughes tells ABC Action News, he's raised the three pit bulls since they were pups. He says one of the dogs chewed a hole through a door, allowing all three to escape Monday morning.

    Hughes surrendered all three dogs for euthanasia, as he believes they are too aggressive and does not want them back. Deputies say all three dogs are licensed and current on all shots.

  • College Students Vulnerable to Sexual Assaults

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — Columbus Police are investigating a pair of sexual assaults hours apart off the Ohio State campus.

    According to a neighborhood crime alert sent to students, the first incident reported at 4:30 Sunday morning. A woman said she was sleeping in her car behind a home on East 16th Avenue when a man jumped inside, made sexual advances and demanded she take off her shirt. The suspect allegedly touched the woman's legs and then ran after she got out the car.

    At 9:30, a second woman says she was walking her dog in an alley between East 11th and Chittenden Avenue when a man came up from behind and groped her lower body. The woman reportedly yelled and the suspect ran away.

    "When you have two in about a five hour period in a campus area, potentially by the same suspect it becomes even that much more concerning just because you wonder what they're going to elevate to next?” said Commander Robert Sagle of Columbus Division of Police.

    The reported incidents rattle student Laques Harrison, "That could've easily been me. I'm happy it wasn't but it definitely made me a little bit more aware of my surrounding I guess."

    Self-defense instructor Rob Fletcher said awareness is one part to staying safe, "Using your eyes, your nose and your ears. That's complete situational awareness, so that's really your best self-defense. Paying attention to what's happening around you."

    Authorities are preaching vigilance as fall classes at Ohio State start August 20th.

  • Mountain Lion Attacks Four-Year Old Boy

    [KNSD San Diego] A 4-year-old boy who was attacked by a mountain lion in Rancho Peñasquitos had severe lacerations on his head and a bite wound on his leg, investigators said.

    The boy had to get stitches in his head from the trauma, that Capt. Patrick Foy of Fish and Wildlife defined as "very severe."

    "When lions attack prey, they attack at the head and neck region," said Captain Foy. "Scalp tears are one of the indicators we're dealing with a lion. It appears the lion was hungry and saw the boy as prey."

    After a day and a half stay at Rady Children's Hospital the boy was released and is expected to make a full recovery.

    The boy was hiking with a group of six adults and five children in the Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, in an area known as Carson's Crossing at the center of the preserve, when the animal attacked at about 2:30 p.m., SDFD Battalion Chief Rick Ballard told NBC 7.

    The boy's father "threw rocks and the animal left the scene," said CDFW spokesperson Lt. Scott Bringman.

    The boy was, "Extremely lucky, I mean a lion could really did some damage and luckily the dad was there and fended off the animal," Bringman said.

    Neighbors said that the boy and his family live nearby and used the popular trail regularly.

  • Video captures dog attack

    [Within steps of his door he and his pet were attacked by an out-of-control dog. This is why you carry pepper spray even for the most routine outings. You never know. You just never know.]

    TAMPA, Fla. (WFTS) — A family’s doorbell surveillance system captures a scary moment as a loose dog attacks the homeowner’s pets. The intense encounter forced the homeowner to get a shot, pay more than $200 in medical bills and left him wondering who the stranger is caught on his Ring camera.

    David Ulibarri was stepping outside his Tampa Heights home to take his small dogs out for a walk when a pitbull comes running into his yard and heads straight for his dog named Gizmo. Ulibarri tries to separate the dogs and after a couple of seconds the pitbull’s owner comes running to the porch. He drags his dog away.

    Ulibarri’s mother asks the stranger, “Do you not have your dog on a leash?” and he responds “No, he was on a leash but I let him go because it was choking him.”

    Gizmo was left with a gash under his eye and bite marks. The dog is on antibiotics.

    “The vet said that if he’d [Gizmo] been a little bit closer he would have lost his eye,” said Ulibarri.

    Ulibarri was bitten and had cuts and nicks. He asked the stranger whether the dog had its rabies shot but the man responded that he didn’t know. Ulibarri was forced to get a tetanus shot. Altogether, the encounter cost Ulibarri more than $200 of out pocket in medical bills.

    Ulibarri requested information from the man who gave him an address and a phone number but not his name. Ulibarri reported the situation to Animal Control who, Ulibarri says, told him all the information was fake. Ulibarri is especially concerned this could happen again to another family.

    “He could let him go again and there could be a kid there that he would attack,” said Ulibarri.

  • Massachusetts Stun Guns Laws Make it Difficult to Carry

    [After Massachusetts was slapped down by the Supreme Court over their complete ban of stun guns, they had to change the law to make it allowable to carry. Here's WWLP explaining how difficult it still it to legally carry a simple stun gun in the state. One would think they are talking about a small, tactical nuke instead of a stun gun.]

    CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – People can now legally possess stun guns in Massachusetts. But, you need to do more than just purchase one.

    Stun guns have been legal in Massachusetts since June of last year, but a lot of people don’t realize you need to have a license to carry one.

    Stun guns were illegal for average citizens in Massachusetts, until the state’s supreme court struck down the ban in 2018, ruling stun guns could be regulated, but not banned.

    Stun guns are easy to find on websites like Amazon, but in order for your possession to actually be legal, you need a permit.

    Chicopee Police Officer Mike Wilk told 22News, “It’s always been against the law to possess these type of devices, but that’s recently changed. So, a lot of people probably don’t know that. Now, you follow the same procedures as a license to carry and you have purchase one. You wouldn’t need another permit, if you already have a license to carry, they can absolutely purchase one of these”

    A 35-year-old man from the town of Wales is facing charges including improper storage of a firearm and possession without a license, after attempting to sell stun guns and double edged knives at the Olde Hadley flea market over the weekend.

    The Hadley police posted on Facebook reminding residents that they need to follow state licensing requirements if they’re going to buy any sort of stun gun.

    Despite being legal for the last year, Edwin Lorens of Springfield told 22News that a lot of people still don’t know you need a permit. He said, “I didn’t realize that, I would just have one honestly. I don’t think it’s that bad to have a taser. I have a few friends that have tasers, I didn’t even know that they were illegal.”

    There are also regulations for how you store your stun gun. They need to be secured in a locked container that only the person with that permit can access.
