Provisions of the New York SAFE Act are being used to bully and frighten Empire State doctors into stripping away the Second Amendment rights of their patients.

The “progressive” principle of dividing and conquering the citizenry continues:

A newly created database of New Yorkers deemed too mentally unstable to carry firearms has grown to roughly 34,500 names, a previously undisclosed figure that has raised concerns among some mental health advocates that too many people have been categorized as dangerous.

The database, established in the aftermath of the mass shooting in 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and maintained by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, is the result of the Safe Act. It is an expansive package of gun control measures pushed through by the administration…

As Twitchy reported, Ferguson, Mo., was relatively quiet Monday night, but police did arrest state senator Jamilah Nasheed and one other protester who in a Vine were shown blocking traffic by kneeling in the middle of a road and performing the “hands up, don’t shoot” pose.

CBS St. Louis today reports that Nasheed refused to take a breathalyzer test, and also that the senator had a gun on her at the time of arrest.

The director of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation has called on technology companies to build surveillance capabilities into their products and systems to allow law enforcement agencies to access the evidence needed to prosecute criminals.

In a speech delivered in Washington last night, FBI director James B Comey argued that US law had failed to keep pace with the increasing adoption of encryption technologies.

Comey blamed encryption and the growing options available for online communications for leaving law enforcement “in the dark” and creating a “significant public safety problem”.

“Those charged with protecting our people aren’t always able to access the evidence we need to prosecute crime and prevent terrorism even with lawful authority,” Comey said.

“We have the legal authority to intercept and access communications and information pursuant to court order, but we often lack the technical ability to do so.”

He listed four examples of cases…

More Police Departments than Previously Thought Use Portable Surveillance Systems to Spy on almost Everyone

More U.S. police departments are employing electronic surveillance technology that can collect information from cell phones and laptop computers belonging not just to criminal suspects but also law abiding citizens.

The Charlotte Observer found the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have for eight years used such equipment, which goes by many names: Stingray, Hailstorm, AmberJack and TriggerFish.

But the technology, which mimics cell towers, is also used by other law enforcement around the country. It’s just not clear which departments, the newspaper says, because the federal government has helped to shield police from disclosing their owning and operating the spy hardware. In fact, the Obama administration “has ordered cities not to disclose information about the equipment,” the Observer’s Fred Classen-Kelly reported.

However, members of the administration might also be among those spied upon. Through an open records request, VICE News

“Come help us celebrate our enjoyment of being straight, white, and male,” the flier said. “Beer available.”

When some fake fliers advertising an upcoming “Straight White Guy festival” appeared in an Ohio town, last summer,   some humor-impaired individuals didn’t appreciate the humor or even get that it was a joke.

“This kind of thing implies there’s some kind of struggle going on for being a straight white person in Ohio,” one area resident sniffed.  “Straight white people are doing just fine.”

Hurrumph!

The leader of an organization pushing same-sex marriage whined that “the flyer is not productive.”  Thankfully, the situation provided an opportunity for a “teaching moment.”

Listen up, you knuckle draggers.

Via 10-tv.com:

“I think it detracts from the real problems of Ohio that need to be solved, that are being denied their constitutional rights because of who they are, or who the love. And that’s what we…

Woman Is Taken Hostage By Bank Robbers On High-Speed Chase; Later Killed By Police Who Fire Over 600 Bullets Into The Car

In an instant, her life would change as Gilbert Renteria Jr., Jaime Ramos, and Alex Martinez came into to rob the bank. They took Singh hostage and fled in a car. However, the police were quickly on their tail and trapped the car. She may have had a glimmer of hope. After all, there were some 33 police officers surrounding the car. That is when the Stockton police opened up on the car and fired over 600 bullets — killing Holt-Singh, 41, and two of the bank robbers. The family is preparing to sue and saying that the response was excessive and ignored the hostage. Singh was hit 10 times — all from the guns of the police.
