Former fireman puts Celina school through his own ‘active-shooter’ drill

Former fireman puts Celina school through his own ‘active-shooter’ drill | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Just as students were arriving to Celina Elementary School yesterday morning, one father made his way into the front office telling staff members they were dead because he was a gunman.

 

Officials said Ron Miller, who did not have a weapon, told staff he was testing the district’s security at his child’s school and wanted to expose weaknesses. Miller, 44, was arrested Wednesday evening on third-degree felony charges of making terroristic threats and held in lieu of a $75,000 bond.

Superintendent Donny O’Dell said school staffers were shaken and upset.

“He went up to one particular greeter — and of course he is someone they know and have seen — and he basically said, ‘I’m a gunman and my target is on the inside, and you’re not going to stop me.’ Then he went to the main office and told the ladies there that each one of them was dead because he was a shooter.”

O’Dell said Miller explained to them that he was trying to see how safe the school’s security was. In the wake of the deadly shooting in Connecticut that left 20 elementary students and seven staffers dead, many have worried about school safety.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Apparently he wanted to test them off guard, however this is not the way to go about it. He should have asked when their next school drill would be so he could see how they handle the process.

 

Though I can see his concern and desire to test the school and staff response to something like this happening randomly. School drills are pre-planned and most of the time teachers and staff are aware of what will happen. In a real life intrusion by a gunman everyone is going about their normal routine and not expecting someone to come in and start shooting. Therefore, I could see his reasoning in wanting to test their response to an unexpected event.

 

I think more parents and students would feel at ease if they knew the schools had armed security. I think many schools and parents will find this the best alternative to using cameras, metal detectors and using only one entrance.

 

Even the parents in Newtown, where the most recent mass shooting took place, prefer keeping armed cops on each campus since the killing of 20 children and 6 staff members occurred last month at Sandy Hook Elementary, see http://t.co/0jtffZJn

Erin Larcey's curator insight, December 8, 2013 5:04 PM

This is an example of people taking things too far. It makes me really sad to think that people go to such extremes in order to make sure their children are safety. These parents are bave to act in such ways and I can understand them wanting to make sure their children are safe. And I understand that they are concerned. But this is not the way for people to make sure their students are safe. We have a process. You can contact the board, or the police and share your concern. It worrys me to see such behavior and maybe that this behavior might turn into the real deal. It's just scary to me.

LGBT Upset White House Has No Comment on Anti-Gay Inaugural Pastor Choice-Start Petition

LGBT Upset White House Has No Comment on Anti-Gay Inaugural Pastor Choice-Start Petition | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Yet again, the pastor chosen to give the benediction at Barack Obama’s Inaugural ceremony has a long, visible, storied history of anti-gay animus.

The Presidential Inauguration Committee announced Tuesday that the President Obama has selected Pastor Louie Giglio of the Georgia-based Passion City Church to deliver the benediction for his second inauguration. In a mid-1990s sermon identified as Giglio’s, available online on a Christian training website, he preached rabidly anti-LGBT views. The 54-minute sermon, entitled “In Search of a Standard – Christian Response to Homosexuality,” advocates for dangerous “ex-gay” therapy for gay and lesbian people, references a biblical passage often interpreted to require gay people be executed, and impels Christians to “firmly respond to the aggressive agenda” and prevent the “homosexual lifestyle” from becoming accepted in society.

How can this happen? Do the people who choose the pastors for Barack Obama’s inaugural events not vet their choices?

Or — worse — are these selections fully vetted and acceptable?

Many of you will recall the LGBT community — and its long-standing faith community allies — were upset in 2009 at Barack Obama’s choice of Pastor Rick Warren™ to provide the Inaugural with a benediction as official events began on the West front of the Capitol. Now the Inaugural Committee has chosen this month’s benediction-provider; he’s an evangelical preacher with a strong anti-gay bias who favors “pray the gay therapy” and proudly pointed to his own father’s authorship of the Chick-Fil-A logo — in a tweet dated August 1 of last year, Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.

littlebytesnews's insight:

No surprise... Obama is a user...he used Jews to get the DEM Jewish vote to show his support for Israel and now he's stabbing them in the back by choosing anti-semite Hagel and Brennen for his cabinet, knowing they both have an anti-Israel, pro-Islam view.

 

Now he's stabbing the LGBT community in the back by having an anti-gay pastor speak at his inaugural. It makes you wonder what Obama really believes when it comes to gay marriage and his support for gays...everything he does is done with a political agenda and now that he's won re-election is he going to throw the gays under the bus??

 

I thought Obama was bisexual, but then again those were rumors...who knows, but Muslims are suppose to detest homosexuals even though pedophilia against young boys is common among Muslim men in the Middle East.

Racist Playground Signs In Delaware Spark Outrage--Intentional or Lost in Translation?

Racist Playground Signs In Delaware Spark Outrage--Intentional or Lost in Translation? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
After going viral on the Internet and triggering widespread outrage, signs -- described as "racist" and anti-Latino -- that were put up at a number of playgrounds in a Delaware city have reportedly been taken down.
littlebytesnews's insight:

At least a conservative radio host brought attention to this sign. It's good it was taken down. I don't think they intended it to be racist, but whoever translated the English to Spanish did a horrible job. Hopefully they will find someone who is better at rephrasing English to Spanish signs in the future. Considering it was posted over a year already, it seems the Hispanic community didn't seem too outraged by it or you would think they would have complained a long time ago. I guess they aren't as sensitive to racism as some might think.

Apophis could hit Earth in 31 years' time-Scientists Seeking Ways to Destroy Before It's Too Late

Apophis could hit Earth in 31 years' time-Scientists Seeking Ways to Destroy Before It's Too Late | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
In Egyptian myth, Apophis was the ancient spirit of evil and destruction, a demon that was determined to plunge the world into eternal darkness

In Egyptian myth, Apophis was the ancient spirit of evil and destruction, a demon that was determined to plunge the world into eternal darkness.

A fitting name, astronomers reasoned, for a menace now hurtling towards Earth from outerspace. Scientists are monitoring the progress of a 390-metre wide asteroid discovered last year that is potentially on a collision course with the planet, and are imploring governments to decide on a strategy for dealing with it.

Nasa has estimated that an impact from Apophis, which has an outside chance of hitting the Earth in 2036, would release more than 100,000 times the energy released in the nuclear blast over Hiroshima. Thousands of square kilometres would be directly affected by the blast but the whole of the Earth would see the effects of the dust released into the atmosphere.

And, scientists insist, there is actually very little time left to decide. At a recent meeting of experts in near-Earth objects (NEOs) in London, scientists said it could take decades to design, test and build the required technology to deflect the asteroid. Monica Grady, an expert in meteorites at the Open University, said: "It's a question of when, not if, a near Earth object collides with Earth. Many of the smaller objects break up when they reach the Earth's atmosphere and have no impact. However, a NEO larger than 1km [wide] will collide with Earth every few hundred thousand years and a NEO larger than 6km, which could cause mass extinction, will collide with Earth every hundred million years. We are overdue for a big one."

Apophis had been intermittently tracked since its discovery in June last year but, in December, it started causing serious concern. Projecting the orbit of the asteroid into the future, astronomers had calculated that the odds of it hitting the Earth in 2029 were alarming. As more observations came in, the odds got higher.

Having more than 20 years warning of potential impact might seem plenty of time. But, at last week's meeting, Andrea Carusi, president of the Spaceguard Foundation, said that the time for governments to make decisions on what to do was now, to give scientists time to prepare mitigation missions. At the peak of concern, Apophis asteroid was placed at four out of 10 on the Torino scale - a measure of the threat posed by an NEO where 10 is a certain collision which could cause a global catastrophe. This was the highest of any asteroid in recorded history and it had a 1 in 37 chance of hitting the Earth. The threat of a collision in 2029 was eventually ruled out at the end of last year.

 

littlebytesnews's insight:

So by 2036 we may be hit with an asteroid if they don't figure out how to destroy the asteroid or change it's path...

 

Alan Fitzsimmons, an astronomer from Queen's University Belfast, said: "When it does pass close to us on April 13 2029, the Earth will deflect it and change its orbit. There's a small possibility that if it passes through a particular point in space, the so-called keyhole, ... the Earth's gravity will change things so that when it comes back around again in 2036, it will collide with us." The chance of Apophis passing through the keyhole, a 600-metre patch of space, is 1 in 5,500 based on current information.

There are no shortage of ideas on how to deflect asteroids. The Advanced Concepts Team at the European Space Agency have led the effort in designing a range of satellites and rockets to nudge asteroids on a collision course for Earth into a different orbit.

North Korean students show Google chief how they search web

North Korean students show Google chief how they search web | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Eric Schmidt gets look at Asian nation's internet usage on visit to computer lab at university in Pyongyang

 

Students at North Korea's premier university have showed Google's executive chairman how they look for information online: they Google it.

But surfing the internet that way is the privilege of only a very few in North Korea, whose authoritarian government imposes strict limits on access to the web.

Eric Schmidt got a first look at North Korea's limited internet usage when an American delegation he and former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson are leading visited a computer lab at Kim Il-sung University in Pyongyang.

Other members of the delegation on the unusual four-day trip include Schmidt's daughter, Sophie, and Jared Cohen, director of the Google Ideas thinktank.

Schmidt, who is the highest-profile US business executive to visit North Korea since leader Kim Jong-un took power a year ago, has not spoken publicly about the reasons behind the journey to North Korea.

Richardson has called the trip a "private, humanitarian" mission by US citizens and has sought to allay worries in Washington.

North Korea is holding a US citizen accused by Pyongyang of committing "hostile" acts against the state, charges that could carry 10 years in a prison or longer. Richardson told the Associated Press he would speak to North Korean officials about Kenneth Bae's detention and seek to visit the American.

Schmidt and Cohen chatted with students working on HP desktop computers at an "e-library" at the university named after North Korea founder Kim Il-sung. One student showed Schmidt how he accesses reading materials from Cornell University online on a computer with a red tag denoting it as a gift from Kim Jong-il.

"He's actually going to a Cornell site," Schmidt told Richardson after peering at the URL.

Cohen asked a student how he searches for information online. The student clicked on Google. "That's where I work!" Cohen said – and then asked to be able to type in his own search: "New York City". Cohen clicked on a Wikipedia page for the city, pointing at a photo and telling the student: "That's where I live."

Kim Su-hyang, a librarian, said students at Kim Il-sung University have had internet access since the laboratory opened in April 2010. School officials said the library is open from 8am to midnight, even when school is not in session, like Tuesday.

While university students at Kim Chaek University of Science and Technology and the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology also have carefully monitored internet access – and are under strict instructions to access only educational materials – most North Koreans have never surfed the web.

Computers at Pyongyang's main library at the Grand People's Study house are linked to a domestic intranet service that allows them to read state-run media online and access a trove of reading materials culled by North Korean officials. North Koreans with computers at home can also sign up for the intranet service.

But access to the web is extremely rare and often is limited to those with clearance to get on the internet.

At Kim Chaek University, instructors and students wishing to use the internet must register first for permission and submit an application with their requests for research online, Ryu Sun-ryol, head of the e-library, said.

But he said it was only a matter of time before internet use became widespread.

"We will start having access to the internet soon," he said in an interview last month. He said North Korea was in the midst of a major push to expand computer use in every classroom and workplace.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Wow, I'm surprised they do actually get access to the internet, though very limited and under supervision and special clearance. Maybe they will move out of the dark ages yet.

 

Only those that attend the University appear to have access, however, as the article states most North Koreans have never surfed the web. Most of the internet is only a domestic intranet service that allows access to state-run media and select reading materials approved by NK officials.  Home intranet service is available but not access to the internet, which is very limited and requires special clearance to use at home. I'm sure only the govt officials have access to the full internet while others are limited to what is pre-approved on the closed intranet.

NBCer Okay With Publishing Gun Owner Addresses: 'We're Not Outing Child Molesters' --Better to Out Felons than Law Abiding Citizens

NBCer Okay With Publishing Gun Owner Addresses: 'We're Not Outing Child Molesters' --Better to Out Felons than Law Abiding Citizens | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
littlebytesnews's insight:

Liberals rather expose and endanger law abiding citizens who have a gun license rather than former convicts and gang members or pedophiles. A more useful map would expose potential criminals, sex offenders, pedophiles, rapists and other felons who have been released and are on parole. Those are the people who are more likely to commit a crime again, not law abiding gun owners.

College Shooting Suspect 'Unfit For Trial'

College Shooting Suspect 'Unfit For Trial' | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The gunman accused of killing seven people and wounding three others at a Californian college is ruled not fit to stand trial.

 

Former nursing student One Goh is also charged with three counts of attempted murder during a shooting rampage at Oikos University in Oakland in April.

He has pleaded not guilty.

But a Californian judge has ruled that the South Korean national is not mentally fit to stand trial after two doctors determined that he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.

A public prosecutor representing Goh said the condition dated back several years and it caused him not to trust people, including those trying to help him.

The authorities have said Goh, 43, planned the killing spree at the school that caters for Korean immigrants after becoming angry with school officials over a tuition dispute. He previously decided to drop out of the school's nursing course.

littlebytesnews's insight:

Another 'mental illness' case of another mass killer who shot and killed seven students in CA following the deadliest killing at VA Techi n 2007, where 32 people were killed and 25 were wounded. 

 

Why have none of these people been identified to have had problems before? What was their mental health history?? Did they see a doctor, were they on psychiatric medications?? We still don't know and may never know because the media moves on from one tragedy to another before they get the full facts and neglect to follow up on these killings.

Video:Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder multiple times when convicted felon attempts to break in w/crowbar

Woman hiding with kids shoots intruder

 

LOGANVILLE, Ga. — A woman hiding in her attic with children shot an intruder multiple times before fleeing to safety Friday.

The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.

But the man eventually found the family.

“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.

The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.

In February, Slater was arrested on simple battery charges, according to the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office. He has been arrested six other times in the county since 2008.

Kavanaugh was the first reporter at the scene as deputies investigated. The victim’s husband told Kavanaugh he’s proud of his wife. He was on the phone with her as the intruder broke in.

“My wife is a hero. She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as responsible, prepared gun owner,” Donnie Herman said.

He said he’s thankful for his family’s safety.

“Her life is saved, and her kids’ life is saved, and that’s all I’d like to say,” Herman said.

Channel 2’s Amy Napier Viteri learned from Chapman late Friday night that slater has been placed on a ventilator and suffers from punctured lungs, a punctured liver and a punctured stomach.

He said if Slater survives the night, doctors will try to operate in the morning to repair the damage.

Chapman said Slater has four exit wounds.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I guess he didn't get a copy of the gun owners map put out by Journal News....oh yeah not all states and newspapers are stupid enough to invade the privacy of law abiding gun owners and endanger the lives of the unarmed and victims of stalking. 

Good for this brave mother to protect and defend her family from a home intruder. If she didn't have the gun he could have overpowered her, knocked her out with the crowbar, killed her, raped her or harmed her children.

‘Unconstitutional Laws Aren’t Laws’: Marine Who Penned Blistering Letter to Sen. Feinstein Over Gun Control Speaks Out | Video

‘Unconstitutional Laws Aren’t Laws’: Marine Who Penned Blistering Letter to Sen. Feinstein Over Gun Control Speaks Out | Video | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Cpl. Joshua Boston, the U.S. Marine whose scathing open letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) over proposed new gun control legislation went viral, again vowed not to abide by any new law requiring him to register his firearms.

 

“Whatever happens happens. I have a right granted to me by the Second Amendment in our bill of rights and it says ‘shall not be infringed,’” Boston said Saturday on CNN. “Unconstitutional laws aren’t laws.”

Boston’s letter, titled “No ma’am,” was first posted on CNN’s iReport on Dec. 27 and quickly made the rounds on social media.

“I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America,” the eight-year Marine Corps veteran wrote.

 

He said that with many gun control laws on the books already, new legislation will do nothing to deter criminals.

“There’s over 2,000 gun laws as it is and the fact of the matter is predators are amongst us and we have to recognize that fact. We don’t live in a utopia. Our citizens have to be armed to protect themselves from these mad men,” Boston said. “People will choose whether or not to carry if they want to. I’ve made that choice as have hundreds of thousands of other Americans should we unfortunately ever find ourselves in a situation to protect others in our lives we will.”

Feinstein’s office said in a statement she “respects Cpl. Boston’s service.”

“She has heard from thousands of people — including many gun owners — who support her plan to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of assault weapons and large capacity magazines, strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds,” the statement said. “As Senator Feinstein has said, the legislation will be carefully focused to protect the rights of existing gun owners by exempting hundreds of weapons used for hunting and sporting purposes.”

Good for him to speak out. While Sen Feinstein claims she has the support of many gun owners to ban the sale of "assault weapons&large capacity magazines" I doubt she has the support of the majority of Americans, and gun owners.

 

As a citizen of the US we are allowed to own guns, they are not authorized to limit what type of guns we own or how many we own or what type of ammunition we can use. Military weapons are already banned from non-military use, but if we don't have the right to protect and defend our families and ourselves then our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are denied. What anti-gun advocates don't understand is that the 2nd amendment wasn't passed to protect our right to hunt and go target shooting, but was passed to protect us from a tyrannical government. God forbid we ever have to defend ourselves against our own government but our founders had to at one time in order to free themselves from the tyranny of King George. If it happened then or has happened in other countries we can not be so naive to believe it can't happen again.

 

Wouldn't you rather know that you have the right to protect and defend yourself, especially if our government turns against us?? Police are not always around when a crime occurs, they are usually not available until someone calls 911 because a crime is in progress or has already been commited. Therefore, we are responsible for protecting and defending ourselves. Police can only do so much to protect and defend us. 

 

Anyway, this topic will continue to be a controversial one and one that will continue to be in the media especially following a mass shooting like the one in Newtown. While the actions of such a madman were horrific, disarming law abiding citizens isn't the solution, but providing greater protection, security and mental health awareness are our best protection to prevent and stop something like that from happening again.

OutServe-SLDN, the association of actively serving LGBT military personnel, willing to support Hagel Nomination Next Week

OutServe-SLDN, the association of actively serving LGBT military personnel, willing to support Hagel Nomination Next Week | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Senator Hagel has said he is ‘committed to LGBT military families,’ so if nominated and confirmed, he should immediately extend, via secretarial directive, all benefits available to married same-sex military couples and families while the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is still on the books. He said he is ‘fully supportive of open service,’ so he should extend military equal opportunity and nondiscrimination policies so that all qualified Americans who wish to serve this nation in uniform may do so without fear of harassment or discrimination. Steps such as these would do a great deal to allay the concerns many in our community have expressed over the last several weeks. I look forward in the weeks ahead to discussing these and other issues important to LGBT service members and their families with Senator Hagel and his designees.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

The organization that represents gays in the military is willing to give Hagel the benefit of the doubt and hopes he will keep his promises to the LGBT community by showing that he will support  giving same sex married military couples the same benefits as heterosexuals and continue to ignore the National Defense of Marriage Act. It's on surprise they are willing to give him this benefit, it gives them an opportunity to pressure him on his apology, while still showing their support for their dear leader, Obama. 

They could care less about his anti-Israel history and only about themselves.

Lower the age of consent to just FOURTEEN, say civil servants... and let's make nudity on the streets legal too

Lower the age of consent to just FOURTEEN, say civil servants... and let's make nudity on the streets legal too | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The 'outrageous' suggestion to lower the age of consent has been rejected out of hand by ministers and their advisers, but sources said reforms to nudity laws were still being considered.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Leave it to progressives in the UK, they have been trying to normalize immorality such as homosexuality for years and have so far succeeded. Now they want to make underage marriage and public nudity normal?? Where have all the common sense morals and values gone. Sure we were born without clothing, but in a civil society we are expected to dress for certain occassions and wear appropriate attire in front of children and in public.

 

This is just another example of the liberals attacking morality and our culture. They want to normalize pedophilia like they did with homosexuality and are attempting to do with same sex marriage. How much immorality do we have to accept before it becomes abhorrent??

 

Abortion is already the worst and most cruel form of immorality that has become legally acceptable in a majority of countries, sadly the US has allowed it to be legal since 1973 and now 55 Million have been aborted since then. We must stop the continued slide into the abyss of immorality before there is nothing left of our culture or civil society. That which is bad has slowly become good and that which is good has become evil.

Prominent rifle manufacturer killed in mysterious car crash&Popular gun rights advocate found shot in head recently

Prominent rifle manufacturer killed in mysterious car crash days after posting psych drug link to school shooters

 

(NaturalNews) What you are about to read is astonishing. I'm not even sure what's the right conclusion to draw from it. But here's what we know so far:

John Noveske is one of the most celebrated battle rifle manufacturers in America. His rifles, found at www.NoveskeRifleworks.com are widely recognized as some of the finest pieces of American-made hardware ever created. (I own one of his rifles, and it's a masterpiece of a machine that just keeps on running.) Sadly, John Noveske was killed in a mysterious car crash just a few days ago, on January 4, 2013.

According to the Outdoor Wire, his car "traveled across the oncoming lane onto the dirt highway shoulder until it struck two large boulders. The vehicle rolled and Mr. Noveske was ejected."

But barely a week before this incident, John Noveske posted a lengthy, detailed post on Facebook that listed all the school shootings tied to psychiatric drugs. At the end of the post, he asked, "What drugs was Adam Peter Lanza on?"

That was the last post he ever made. (Full text below.)

They are ticked off over a shooting that took innocent lives and they turn right around and want to murder innocent people that have done them absolutely no harm!

But that wasn’t all. There were cries of those wanting to do away with the Second Amendment and banning the NRA.

William La Jeunesse reports from Los Angeles
littlebytesnews's insight:

Also according to the report, more than half the gunmen in mass shootings have mental illness, often undiagnosed. In addition, there are already laws against the mentally ill purchasing or owning guns, however there are also laws against murder, stealing and trespassing, but those who are going to break the law don't care how many laws there are. They will steal, trespass and kill no matter what the laws are and that is why we need to protect&defend ourselves, especially because police can not arrive as soon as a crime is being committed.

Hero Carolyn Gudger: School Resource Officer Saves Life of Principal and Students Yet MSM Ignored Story

For the first time hear Officer Carolyn Gudger talk about that eventful day on August 30, 2010 that changed her life and the lives of the students and staff ...
littlebytesnews's insight:

I had never heard about this brave and heroic woman before, until today. Yet it's been a little over two years since she saved the life of the school principal at Sullivan Central High School and countless students and staff. I guess the reason we haven't heard more about this brave woman is because nobody was killed except for the gunman and all the students and staff remained safe, thanks to the quick and professional actions of Carolyn Gudger.

 

"A local schools official said Tuesday that a school resource officer, staff members and students at Sullivan Central High school reacted "phenomenally well" to a gun-wielding man who was later shot and killed by sheriff's deputies.

Thomas Richard Cowan, 62, was killed at the school in Blountville after he pointed a loaded pistol at the principal's head and refused a command to drop the gun. No one else was hurt.

County schools director Jubal Yennie said resource officer Carolyn Gudger and principal Melanie Riden confronted Cowan inside the school entrance and kept him away from students until deputies arrived.

Investigators have not said why Cowan went to the school, where his brother is a janitor.

 

Sheriff Wayne Anderson said Monday that Cowan entered the school with a .380-caliber semiautomatic, a .25-caliber handgun in his back pocket and 13 bullets. The sheriff said that after Cowan grabbed Riden and pointed the semiautomatic at her head, Gudger pulled her gun on Cowan and moved the principal to safety.

Yennie said that during the confrontation Riden "was able to get the school locked down and 911 notified" before she got away from the gunman. He said Gudger was "able to back him down long enough to make sure the building was secure."

Yennie said that after Cowan got inside "there was no student visible at all."

"Our security doors did what they are intended to do," he said.

Students were dismissed for the day after the shooting and Yennie said one possible shortcoming was the pace of notifying parents: "We didn't get the message out that students were safe early enough.""

http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2010/aug/31/school-official-commends-deputy-reaction-gunman/&nbsp;

 

 

Thus, proving once again, a good person with a gun is what is needed to stop a bad person with a gun. The media would rather ignore the countless cases of people saving their lives or the lives of others because it doesn't fit the liberal agenda of pushing more laws and regulations against 'gun violence'. The liberals would rather make guns look like the enemy rather than the user. It's not the gun that shoots itself, but the person using it and what their intentions are. Law abiding citizens don't normally have guns to kill other people, unless it is in self defense. Once again, why wait minutes for police to arrive when you only have seconds to save a life.

 

Despite not having a bullet proof vest, Carolyn Gudger put her life on the line to protect and defend the principal and kept the gunman at bay. Thankfully police arrived in time to take out the gunman and she had the courage to hold him off from shooting the principal and was able to move the principal to safety. 

 

It sure would be nice if we would hear more about these stories rather than the glorification of mass shooters in the media and the tragic loss of so many lives like we have heard in Newtown, CT. Maybe if the media would focus more on how http://gunssavelives.net rather than on these horrific tragedies less copycat incidents would occur and more schools would be protected with armed security like the staff and students at this school.

Raid on home of Twitter user suspected of spreading Chávez health rumours

Raid on home of Twitter user suspected of spreading Chávez health rumours | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Alleged microblogger is cousin of prominent opposition journalist who has been critical of the Venezuelan government

 

Venezuelan intelligence officers have raided the home of a Twitter user suspected of spreading destabilising rumours about the health of Hugo Chávez ahead of an inauguration that the ailing president looks increasingly unlikely to attend.

The alleged microblogger, Federico Medina Ravell is the cousin of a prominent opposition figure, prompting concerns that a long-simmering "information war" could be escalating as the government and its opponents try to fill the vacuum left by a leader who has not been seen or heard in public since he flew to Cuba for emergency cancer surgery a month ago.

The team of Sebin (Bolivarian National Intelligence Service) officers confiscated several computers from Medina's home in Valencia on Sunday night, according to domestic newspapers.

Medina is the cousin of Alberto Federico Ravell, a well-known opposition journalist and co-founder of Globovision, a major news broadcaster and staunch critic of the Chávez government.

Medina, who was not at home, is accused of instigating terrorism through social networking sites. He is said to be behind the@LucioQuincioC Twitter account, which has claimed that Chávez will not return from Havana.

The account remains active and claims to be a collaboration between 20 bloggers in eight cities, mostly overseas. Other Twitter users are mocking Sebin by claiming to have spotted@LucioQuincioC elsewhere, including the peaks of the Andes and drinking cocoa in Calgary.

The raid underpins the heightened political sensitivity ahead of a scheduled swearing-in ceremony on Thursday that seems likely to be postponed amid uncertainty about both Chávez's health and what happens when a president-elect cannot attend his inauguration.

An official health bulletin last week said the president was suffering from complications brought on by a severe lung infection after surgery. The opposition have demanded more detailed information about his prognosis. Foreign news organisations and Twitter accounts have spread rumours that he is in a coma, on a life support system or dead.

One tweet from an account called @estebangerbasi, which has almost 80,000 followers, has called for a nationwide civic strike on 10 January if the inauguration fails to take place, prompting accusations of a coup d'etat in the making from both camps.

Venezuela's vice-president, Nicolás Maduro, rebutted both the speculation and the call for protests on Monday.

The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing filings for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million. Campaigns are required to file the reports during the final weeks of the campaign.

Newtown Police Reports Near Completion-Will the Media Ever Follow-Up on the False Reports&Rumors Behind the Newtown Shooting??

Newtown Police Reports Near Completion-Will the Media Ever Follow-Up on the False Reports&Rumors Behind the Newtown Shooting?? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Nearly one month after the Newtown, Conn., shooting, the official police report on the crime scenes is nearing completion, and a police spokesman tells the Daily Beast's Diane Dimond that there will be some shocking, eye-opening conclusions that counter much of the media' faulty initial reporting. 

One such piece of misinformation was the early, egregious rumor that the shooter's mother, Nancy Lanza, was a survivalist or "doomsday prepper," a paranoid hoarder obsessed with what she considered the imminent collapse of society. In a January 7 post at the Daily Beast website, Dimond quoted a Lt. Paul Vance of the Connecticut State Police debunking that notion and saying a forthcoming police report will help to dispel urban legends that have crystallized in the public imagination:

Question: Did Adam spend his time sequestered in two rooms in the basement? “No, No,” Vance said, shaking his head. “That’s just not right.”

Question: Did he play violent video games, as has also been reported? Vance “can’t say anything yet.” The forensic computer team continues to try to reconstruct Adam’s Internet footprint for clues to his thinking.

Question: Was Nancy a survivalist bent on stockpiling food and guns in preparation for economic collapse, as some media have alleged? To that, Vance scrunched up his face dismissively, shook his head, and in an exasperated tone  said, “I don’t even know where that came from.”

(The idea that Nancy might be a “doomsday prepper” was first mentioned by Marsha Lanza, who lives in Crystal Lake, Ill., and admits she hadn’t seen Nancy or Adam for years.)

Vance "cautioned against taking too much of what has been reported as fact" and cryptically told Dimond, [empasis mine] "I think you’ll be surprised to learn the truth about that once the final police report is released.”

littlebytesnews's insight:

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I do not trust this government nor the media very much. I recall watching and listen to the reports on the day of the shooting and them reporting to have found a 2nd shooter and that they were seeking a maroon van with windows blown out...since that day nothing else has been reported about either suspects or why they were suspects to the Newtown shooting. This video shows when police spot two other shooters/suspects&pursue them into the woods....but then nothing is said about them in follow-up reports: http://youtu.be/2NYH_NVuBNA

 

I understand initial reports are confusing and information is fluid, but why would police be pursuing additional suspects if they didn't see them?? Were they hallucinating?? Who was driving the maroon van that was reported to have had something to do with the Newtown shooting?? There are many unanswered questions and because we have a media that sides with the gun control advocates and government we may never know the answers. In addition to the questions about the additional suspects, we know very little about the shooter found dead in the building, Adam Lanza, other than the reports of friends and his aunt, some of which has been misleading information such as the prepper information. We still have no confirmation if he was on psychiatric medications or received any treatment for his 'personality disorder' or another mental illness. The person who claimed to be his 'uncle' who said he was on Fanapt, an anti-psychotic prescribed for schizophrenia, has since been debunked after reports came out that the man claiming to be Adam Lanza's uncle were false. http://t.co/IjD9dsyZ

 

Hopefully as the police reports are released, along with 911 tapes and other details come out we finally have an answer to all the conflicting information. However, there are still many who will never believe the media nor the government, just as there are still many who believe the 9/11 terror attacks were an inside job. I do not believe any of these to be 'inside jobs', however I do question the media and the misrepresentation of facts in order to push an agenda, such as gun control laws and gun confiscation.

“Wal-Mart and other major gun retailers may have an incentive to support closing a loophole that allows people to bypass background checks if they purchase firearms at gun shows or through other types of private sales,” the Post explained, citing a source who works with the Obama administration on gun issues.

This is the LAST thing America needs! We need to get rid of Obama now...we needed him gone in November....actually he should have never won election in 2008, but thanks to voter fraud and ACORN he won and he won again thanks to voter fraud and foreign donations.... http://obamavoterfraud.com Yet we are still stuck with him. There have been bills introduced to have him impeached and unfortunately have gone nowhere like most bills introduced in the House do because the do nothing, no budget passing Senate and obstructionist Harry Reid won't allow anything to come to a vote that they disagree with...I'm sure this might get a double look or even a vote. God forbid they attempt to overturn our Constitution and re-elect Obama for life. He's a tyrant wanna be and his followers are communists as well. All of them need to go. If they continue to disrespect our laws and the law of the land, our Constitution this country will be finished unless we the people rise up against it! How soon before another revolution is needed?? Or a military coup??

House GOP seeks to abolish IRS, replace income tax with 23% consumption tax on all new goods and service

House GOP seeks to abolish IRS, replace income tax with  23% consumption tax on all new goods and service | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Fifty-four House Republicans on Thursday re-introduced legislation that would terminate the Internal Revenue Service, and replace the system of income taxes on people and corporations with a consumption tax.

 

The FairTax Act, from Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), would abolish the 16th Amendment, which was ratified 100 years ago this February. That amendment gives Congress the power to impose income taxes without having to spend the revenues evenly among the states.

Woodall's bill, H.R. 25, would replace the current tax system with a 23 percent consumption tax on all new goods and services. He said Thursday that this change would eliminate the need for a complicated tax code, and would be the kind of tax reform that helps reinvigorate the economy.


"The FairTax would make it easier for businesses to grow and hire new workers by abolishing America's corporate income tax, currently the highest in the world."

Woodall argues that eliminating the corporate income tax would give companies an incentive to repatriate billions of dollars from overseas that would be subject to taxes under current law.

Specifically, the bill would repeal the payroll tax, individual and corporate income taxes, the self-employment tax, and estate and gift taxes.

It would be replaced with a 23 percent consumption tax that people living at or below the poverty rate would not have to pay. The bill would require a "probate" to be paid to all residents that is equal to the consumption tax the poor would normally pay, thus sparing them from taxes completely.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I'm not so sure how great this would be...would this also nullify state income taxes?? If we have to pay 23% on everything we buy will the cost of products come down since corporate taxes will be included in the consumption tax?? Also how much of this will go to social security and medicare, since you know the DEMs&those on those programs aren't willing to lose those benefits.

 

I'm not sure this is the best idea, but it does offer a sort of plan to create a more fair tax. However, I still think we need a flat tax, which everyone pays including the poor...that way everyone is contributing in some way. Those who are legitimately indigent such as the disabled should not be taxed and remain on govt assistance, but how will they control the entitlement abuse in the welfare system, especially when Obama and some liberal states are allowing illegals to benefit off our welfare system??

 

What do you think? Do you support this plan??

Vermont teacher surrenders Bushmaster rifle, placed on leave from school after angry YouTube rants and emails

Vermont teacher surrenders Bushmaster rifle, placed on leave from school after angry YouTube rants and emails | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
A popular Vermont high school teacher has been placed on leave after surrendering a Bushmaster semi-automatic rifle to police who were "alarmed" over his angry rants about his job.

 

Steven Davis was briefly hospitalized this week for a mental health evaluation on the recommendation of Bennington police. By Saturday, Davis had been discharged from Southwestern Vermont Medical Center, a hospital official told the Daily News. She would not provide any other information.

Davis voluntarily surrendered the Bushmaster AR-15, the same rifle used in the Newtown, Conn. massacre, as well as two high-capacity magazines on Monday, said Bennington Police Chief Paul Doucette. Police later seized about 500 rounds of ammunition during a search of Davis’ home.

Alarmed neighbors called police when they saw Davis walking to his car with the rifle.

In one video, said he had plans for retribution.

“This is all planned and very well thought out … I've studied military tactics and this is the way to go. It's all going to hit so hard, so fast and shut that school system down til they get things straight."

He did not give any details of the plan.

In his most recent video post, Davis was seated in a hospital bed. "I think the school system is sick and needs to be healed,” he told viewers, according to WNYT. That video has since been pulled from YouTube.

Davis had also sent out a series of concerning emails to fellow teachers and school officials.

During an interview with police, Davis “started going on about reading CIA manuals and he talked about looking into military training and things like that, I became alarmed,” said Doucette.

“My staff became even more alarmed and we became concerned about the safety of the teachers at the school and the safety of the community,” he said.

Davis told police he had never shot the Bushmaster, which he purchased in 2009. Police said the gun does not appear to have ever been fired.

Strange, I guess it was a good idea to take his rants seriously and to have him evaluated for mental stability. He voluntarily gave up his weapon so I guess that was his choice. They haven't officially filed any charges against him...after all free speech is free speech and he didn't say he was going to actually harm anyone physically, but it does make you wonder if the police are overstepping by having him committed for a mental evaluation just for making strange videos on Youtube??

 

I'm sure the liberals will start thinking arming teachers is a bad idea because they will assume all teachers are crazy or have the potential to snap like this guy, even though he didn't physically harm anyone nor threaten to actually use his gun on anyone. But, as we trust our police and military we have to entrust our kids with teachers every day. Teachers don't even get a mental evaluation like police and military go through. Perhaps they need to start evaluating them as well since that is one of the requirements for lawful citizens to own guns, but then again is it infringing on their rights and the right to own guns if they have no history of mental illness??

 

What a slippery slope gun laws lead to...when the reality is that we can't predetermine anyone's intentions when they buy a gun and anyone can lose it, but most likely law abiding gun owners, teachers, police and military are not going to go out and kill anyone. We can't keep making more laws and restrictions on law abiding citizens because of the few who break the laws regardless.

It is a lie!
littlebytesnews's insight:

40% increase in firearms crime after UK banned guns..you'd think the Obama admin would learn from the mistakes of others...but no, they don't and they are making the same mistakes when it comes to the economy as well. Raising taxes on the rich won't stop the spending and debt problem.
