The Second Ammendment, written more than 200 years ago says, “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.”

Man Hides Inside Woman’s Sofa, Waits for Her to Come Home

This story out of NY is rather creative, in a creepy stalker-esque kind of way. A man in Newburgh, NY actually carved out a space in the back of a woman’s sofa, hid in the hole he created, and waited for her to come home. Apparently the woman felt a bump in the couch cushion [...]

Taser Debate, Round 12337478…

The following excerpts come from an article out of Dothan, Alabama’s DothanEagle.com. Apparently a guy was stopped for not wearing his seat belt, tried to run from the police officer, got zapped by a Taser, and ended up in the hospital. So of course all these bleeding heart whiners are up in arms.
So lets break [...]

Heist Turns Sour at Local Lemonade Stand

I guess once you graduate from stealing candy form babies, your next logical step is ripping off lemonade stands. I mean you don’t want to jump into convenience stories too quickly… you might not quite be ready to take such a big step.

A man in Bridgeport, CT as arrested after he attempted to order his 9-foot-long albino python to attack two police officers. Lucky for the cops, pythons rank near goldfish on the pet obedience scale.

The cops were called to [...]

14 Years in Jail and the Cane for Armpit Sniffer

Sometimes I am not quite sure what to make of some of the news stories I come across. I am thinking this one has a lengthy history and more details would perhaps explain a bit more, but the headline sure caught my eye “Armpit sniffer gets jail and cane”.
Apparently a 36-year-old, mentally-unstable (you think?) man [...]

Friday the 13th not as unlucky as you thought?

Dutch statisticians, who apparently have had some free time on their hands, have determined that Friday the 13th is actually safer than your average run-of-the-mill Friday.
The Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) has recently concluded that accidents and crime actually occurs less on this widely regarded “unlucky” day. “I find it hard to believe that [...]

What is worse than the gas prices? Getting beat up too.

It is getting uglier at the gas pumps in Cypress, CA where gas is already averaging around $4.50 per gallon.

Self-Defense is a Personal Choice

I was going through some old notes and found this little
nugget from awhile back, not sure why it didn’t get posted
back in last August (2007), but since it was a pretty good
article, I’ll post it now.

action, or choose stand by and allow things to happen.
“Three cheers [...]

Random Acts of Violence

It really amazes me sometimes when I hear how oblivious some people are to the possible threat of crime. I’m not talking about full fledged paranoia all the time, but some people take the “It won’t happen to me” syndrome to the opposite extreme. There are even self-proclaimed self-defense experts that will lead you to [...]

Guns Don’t Kill, People Do.

This anti-weapon, anti-gun, anti-Taser babble is really getting ridiculous by all these ignorant bleeding heart liberals. Let’s get one thing straight, again…
Guns don’t kill, people do. Tasers don’t kill, people do.
It is not the weapon performing the action, it is the physical being behind the implement. You can be killed with a #2 pencil [...]

Frank Cucci’s Unarmed Combat Course DVD

Unlike most people, Bridget hated quitting time. She wasn’t a
workaholic or anything, but ever since her company moved its
office to save on expenses, she dreaded the thought of the four-
block walk to the parking garage.

couldn’t stand to walk down the street in the dark. In [...]
