Gun Owners Challenge California’s Large Capacity Magazine Ban

(Police State Daily) California gun owners have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the state’s ban on so-called “large capacity” magazines.

Filed in Fresno on Friday by the Calguns Foundation, the Firearms Policy Coalition, the Firearms Policy Foundation, the Second Amendment Foundation and seven private citizens, the lawsuit contends the ban violates Constitutional rights.

Singed by Gov. Jerry Brown last year, Senate Bill No. 1446 goes into effect on July 1. It prohibits any person in the state from lawfully possessing “any large-capacity magazine, regardless of the date the magazine was acquired.”

The law defines “large-capacity magazine” as anything holding more than 10 rounds. Violators face up to a year in jail, a fine of up to $100 for the first offense, a fine of up to $250 for a second offense and a fine of up to $500 for third or subsequent offenses.

Of coarse, the law provides exemptions for “any federal, state, county, city and county, or city agency that is charged with the enforcement of any law, for use by agency employees in the discharge of their official duties, whether on or off duty, and where the use is authorized by the agency and is within the course and scope of their duties.”

If the law is such a good idea, why doesn’t it apply to cops? The common justification is because officers put themselves in harms way and need to protect themselves from criminals. Shouldn’t private citizens be able to protect themselves in the same manner?

How many cops do you think would support a law like this if it applied to them? Not very many. Why then is it acceptable for politicians to hinder us “little people” with a 10 round limit their enforcers would never wish to comply with?

In the words of the great French philosopher and economist Frederic Bastiat, who described this mindset as “the superhuman idea” in his short work, The Law:

Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?… They would be the shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority.

There are many reasons one may need a magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. What if an individual is attacked by multiple assailants? Violent criminals usually work in in tandem and act in groups. Criminals do not respect laws, that’s why they are criminals. Is it a good idea to limit defensive capabilities by complying with a law that others wish to explicitly exploit?

What about civil disturbances that take place in the wake of things like riots or natural disasters? Have you seen the Reginald Denny beating and insanity that took place during the L.A. riots? What about the looting and destruction that took place after Hurricane Katrina? Don’t individuals who wish to protect themselves and their property need more than just 10 rounds in these situations?

Of coarse they do but it is telling how National Guard troops and police forces have responded to things like Katrina where they illegally confiscated firearms from lawful citizens and dragged them out of their homes. This irrevocably speaks to the greater reality of why gun ownership and the ability to possess “large-capacity magazines” is so important – because one day, defense may be required against the government.

Any student of history knows this to be a very real possibility. In the 20th century alone, governments and their enforcers, like police, are responsible for killing more than 262 million of their own citizens. Much of this democide followed the confiscation and outlawing of firearms that often started with things like menial restrictions.

According to Friday’s lawsuit, large-capacity magazines are “an intrinsic part of all semi-automatic firearms” and “are not merely individual pieces of personal property, but rather, are intrinsic and inherent constitutionally-protected parts of constitutionally-protected firearms.”

Senate Bill No. 1446 requires that all California residents remove, destroy or surrender all large-capacity magazines prior to July 1.

“Enforcement of this ban would immediately place thousands of law-abiding California gun owners in jeopardy of criminal liability and subjects their personal property to forfeiture, seizure and permanent confiscation,” Second Amendment Foundation founder Alan M. Gottlieb said. “[This] is government taking, without due process or compensation. We cannot allow that to go unchallenged.”

$5.5M Settlement For Man Beat Mercilessly With Batons By Cops

(Police State Daily) A man who suffered a concussion, deep head cuts and broken bones in his arms at the hands of Alameda County, California sheriff’s deputies will now receive a $5.5 million lawsuit settlement.

Attorneys said Friday that the Alameda County Board of Supervisors approved the settlement for Stanislav Petrov on Tuesday. Petrov had been sitting in a reportedly stolen vehicle in the parking lot of the Travelers Inn on Foothill Boulevard in San Leandro at about 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 12.

He led police on a 38 minute car chase. According to officers, Petrov used the car to ram two patrol cars, which injured one deputy. He was then pursued “to Oakland, onto the freeway, over the Bay Bridge and through downtown San Francisco and finally onto Stevenson Street.”

That’s where he crashed the car and fled on foot. Video filmed of the incident showed deputies Paul Wieber and Luis Santamarianear chase Petrov to the corner of Clinton Park where he surrendered.

He was then tackled to the ground by the cops who rained down punches and over 40 baton strikes upon his head, face and body. Petrov can be heard on the footage crying out in agony.

Following the beating, Petrov was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment, where he was latter released into the custody of officers and processed into the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin.

“From what you can see on the video, he’s turning the corner and they’re able to subdue him,” Petrov’s public defender Jeff Adachi said at the time. “They clearly had him on the ground. He didn’t pose any threat at that point, and they are clearly using excessive force and trying to seriously hurt him when he was on the ground and subdued.”

Watch the raw footage:

“I don’t see any reason why he couldn’t be handcuffed and taken into custody,” Adachi added. “The blows, after they took him to the ground, were excessive by any measure, any standard. It’s shocking to see.”

Following the incident, Petrov filed a lawsuit and an internal investigation was launched to review Wieber and Santamarianear’s actions. Both officers have since been fired and face assault with a deadly weapon and other charges.

On Friday, Alameda County insurers authorized the $5.5 million settlement and stated the payout will “hold the deputies accountable for their really egregious actions and send the message to law enforcement that this conduct isn’t tolerable in a civilized society.”

Another officer on the scene of the beating is accused of stealing Petrov’s gold chain and using it along with cash and cigarettes to bribe homeless witnesses. Deputy Shawn Osborne was fired on July 29 and still remains under investigation.

BREAKING: North Korea Just Threatened to Sink US Nuclear Submarine

North Korea

North Korea, feeling pressure of encroaching American and allied vessels, has now threatened to make a ghost ship of a U.S. nuclear submarine — but the warning might not be hyperbolic rhetoric.

“The moment the USS Michigan tries to budge even a little, it will be doomed to face the miserable fate of becoming an underwater ghost without being able to come to the surface,” railed propagandic North Korean outlet, Uriminzokkiri, quoted by the Independent.

“The urgent fielding of the nuclear submarine in the waters off the Korean Peninsula, timed to coincide with the deployment of the super aircraft carrier strike group, is intended to further intensify military threats toward our republic.”

Announced as a routine, scheduled training exercise with ally, South Korea, President Trump sent an ‘armada’ of U.S. vessels to the waters off the Korean peninsula, which now includes the nuclear-powered U.S.S. Michigan and the U.S.S. Carl Vinson aircraft carrier group — which, as Bloomberg reports, are also accompanied by the “destroyers USS Wayne E. Meyer and USS Michael Murphy and the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain.”

All of this firepower, whatever the guise under which they arrived near Pyongyang’s doorstep, has been characterized by the North as “intimidation and blackmail,” particularly given Trump’s pugnacious assertions he would not allow secretive regime to develop nuclear missiles capable of striking the U.S. mainland.

Both Japan and South Korea, traditional U.S. allies in the region, continue with other allied nations to coordinate in hopes of lessening the chance Kim Jong-un would act aggressively amid stifling tensions, as Uriminzokkiri stated outright, “whether it’s a nuclear aircraft carrier or a nuclear submarine, they will be turned into a mass of scrap metal in front of our invincible military power centred on the self-defence nuclear deterrence.”

Trump recently stumped South Korea by calling for Seoul to pay up to $1 billion for its use of the THAAD missile defense system along its border with the North; but national security adviser H.R. McMaster has since insisted to his South Korean counterpart, Kim Kwan-jin, the U.S. would ensure its ally’s safety.

As the U.S. armada began arriving for exercises, Pyongyang test fired another ballistic missile, and although Washington reported that firing a failure — the missile ostensively disintegrated just minutes after launch, its pieces landing in the Sea of Japan — the cloistered nation continued threats like the aforementioned.

China, North Korea’s strongest ally, has urged Pyongyang to employ discretion and caution in engaging the U.S., warning any sudden moves like firing upon the American fleet would bring the region into full-scale military conflict.

Asked about the latest test and for a general message on the topic of North Korea, Trump ominously stated, without elaborating further,

“You’ll soon find out, won’t you?”

Of course, with nationalist and military propaganda thoroughly inundating any discussion of the situation, a realistic picture of what could happen if and when rhetoric turns kinetic has been difficult to discern.

Reports such as those from the U.S. Naval Institute claim superiority in firepower, both defensive and offensive, should Pyongyang follow through with increasingly belligerent threats — but some analyses caution the Vinson group and accompanying ships might be capable of the destruction officials have championed.

Bloomberg, for instance, headlined an article, “Trump ‘Armada’ Sent to Deter Kim Can’t Shoot Down His Missiles,” on Tuesday — the same day the Michigan arrived in the South Korean port city of Busan to join the others.

Noted Bloomberg of the Vinson group and armada, “They aren’t equipped with the version of the Aegis surveillance system made by Lockheed Martin Corp. that can track long-range ballistic missiles or Raytheon Co.’s SM-3 interceptors that are capable of bringing down medium and longer-range ballistic missiles.

“Nor are the modern Japanese Navy destroyers JS Samidare and JS Ashigara that joined the Vinson group for exercises equipped for missile defense detection or intercepts, a Japanese Navy spokesman confirmed. And the three South Korean ‘Sejong the Great’-class destroyers currently in operation don’t have ballistic missile defense capability, Tom Callender, a naval forces analyst with the Washington-based Heritage Foundation, said in an interview.”

Further, although the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system has been placed around 35 miles from the Korean demilitarized zone, its hardware is not yet fully operational — leaving South Korea vulnerable even as its neighbor to the North specifically takes issue with that defense.

Pentagon spokesman Navy Commander Gary Ross refused to answer specifics on U.S. weapons defense capabilities, he emphasized for Bloomberg, “no single capability defends against all threats. Rather it is the employment of integrated, multi-layered land and sea-based systems that provide missile defense” — for the U.S. and its allies.

“We have ballistic missile ships in the Sea of Japan, in the East Sea, that are capable of defending against ballistic missile attacks,” Navy Admiral Harry Harris, the head of U.S. forces in Korea and the Pacific, asserted Wednesday to the House Armed Services Committee.

He added of ships escorting the Vinson group that defense of the armada would not be a question, stating,

“If it flies, it will die, if it’s flying against the Carl Vinson strike group.”

Defense analyst David Wright with the Union of Concerned Scientists explained that, even if Aegis-equipped vessels were present in the waters near North Korea and Japan, the U.S. would not be capable of striking down another ICBM immediately after it was launched.

“There is a misconception that if it was close enough,” a U.S. Navy BMD vessel “could shoot a missile down during boost phase. But it doesn’t have that capability,” Wright said. “During boost phase the missile is an accelerating target, and Aegis doesn’t have the maneuverability to home in on such a target.

“Similarly, it would not be able to shoot down shorter-range missiles, like the Musudan, during boost phase. You might be able to shoot it down after boost phase, but by that time North Korea would be able to get information about the most critical part of the trajectory, so that strategy is unlikely to slow” Kim’s ardent quest to develop missiles.

No matter how stridently Trump feels toward quashing North Korea’s nuclear weapons hopes, any designs the U.S. might have to depose the Kim regime will not likely see success — even if physically successful.

Business Insider pointed out, the secretive nation still considers itself under the rule of ‘forever leader,’ Kim Il Sung, who died in 1994 — and North Koreans vociferously support longstanding goals of nuclear aggression against the world.

Peoples Climate March hits D.C. with new goals for the Trump era

WASHINGTON — Although these are dark days for environmentalists, the Peoples Climate March had a cheerful air Saturday afternoon as it took over the streets surrounding the federal government in Washington, D.C.

According to the event’s organizers, more than 200,000 people came from across the country to gather in the swamp’s humidity. (Apropos of the day’s event, the temperature soared past 90°F.) More than 400 official buses brought attendees to D.C., and there were some 300 satellite marches around the country.

Marchers started in front of the Capitol Building, filled out the length of Pennsylvania Avenue, and marched down to the White House. There they split in two, symbolically surrounding the White House and the longtime climate-science denier who occupies it. Then they filtered down to the National Mall. Splayed in front of the Washington Monument, they listened to speeches from front-line environmental justice activists hailing from Brooklyn to San Francisco and points halfway in between, such as the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in South Dakota.

Giant orbs rolled along representing Earth, and lighthearted signs made reference to the planet with slogans such as “Respect your mother.” Some posters mocked President Trump with slightly dark wisecracks such as “Mar-a-Lago elevation: 3 feet. It’s not all bad.” Some, such as those warning that “There is no Planet B,” were darker still. Others were meant to inspire with slogans such as “The seas are rising but so are we.”

The number of comedic political T-shirts rivaled sincere ones. Yahoo News spotted only one Hillary 2016 shirt, but three representing joke candidates for 2020: Stewart/Colbert, the Big Lebowski and Kanye West.

Borrowing from the playbook of conservative Tea Party activists, Harold Fuller-Bennett of Takoma Park, Md., dressed up in Revolutionary War garb. Standing along Pennsylvania Avenue blowing his horn, Fuller-Bennett explained that he was Paul Revere, there to warn the citizens about climate change. His sign helpfully hinted at Revere’s famous ride with the phrase “One if by land, two if by sea,” and Fuller-Bennett consistently issued two honks of the horn to reference the rising seas.

Compared to the March for Science a week earlier, Saturday’s demonstration was more overtly political. When marchers passed the Trump International D.C. hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, they started shouting, “Shame, shame” and “Check out.” Many had posters and even puppets depicting Trump in various evil poses, such as holding the Earth on a string like a yo-yo.

Only a small number of the messages called for specific policy decisions, but this is perhaps unsurprising given Trump’s hostility toward climate science and environmental regulation. The massive cuts in Trump’s proposed budget to environmental regulation and scientific research did come up, though. And a former Environmental Protection Agency official spoke at the rally on the importance of the bureau’s work. Some marchers chanted “Save the EPA,” “No Keystone,” and carried anti-Trump signs such as “Keep your tiny hands off NASA’s climate research.”

Rather than attracting stereotypical gray-ponytailed Birkenstock-shod tree-huggers, this event reflecting the organizers’ emphasis on diversity and environmental and economic justice. Participants were racially diverse, often quite young, with contingents hailing from across the coalition that co-sponsors the Peoples Climate Movement, which includes a range of labor unions, social and racial justice groups, and environmental advocacy organizations.

But the political context for these activists is daunting. Just the day before, Trump issued an executive order to the Department of Interior that may result in opening up parts of the Arctic, Atlantic and Pacific oceans to offshore oil and gas drilling. In March, Trump began the process of repealing the Clean Power Plan that would have limited carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants. And the world anxiously awaits the Trump administration’s decision on whether it will pull the U.S., the world’s largest cumulative greenhouse-gas emitter and largest economy, out of the Paris climate agreement.

This is dramatically different from the conditions surrounding the previous Peoples Climate March, held in New York City in September 2014, which brought hundreds of thousands of people to pressure then-President Barack Obama and other world leaders in advance of that year’s United Nations Climate Summit. In that case, they were pushing a friendly administration, and the march was followed by Obama ramping up domestic climate action and international climate diplomacy, laying the groundwork for successful climate negotiations in Paris the next year.

Unlike the past week, when Trump felt compelled to issue statements in response to the science march, the president did not tweet or issue a statement on the climate march. (During a Saturday night rally in Harrisburg, Pa., Trump attacked the Paris accord and declared that he’d be making a “big decision” about it within two weeks.)

But swaying the White House into bold action was not a goal for Saturday’s event.

Organizers said that this time, their goals are more modest: largely, to build connections between activists of different backgrounds and focuses on varied issues, and to boost to their enthusiasm for defending the Obama administration’s climate policies while making incremental progress at the state and local levels. This was a sentiment echoed by rank-and-file march attendees. Jim Lively, a local environmental activist from northern Michigan, took a 14-hour bus ride to D.C. with 54 others from his community, with no expectation of effecting immediate policy changes. “It’s not about Trump,” said Lively. “It’s about us: to be with each other, find people to connect with and energize.”

Others marchers suggested that seeing news of such a large turnout might inspire apathetic liberals. “If I was young and I saw this on TV, I’d think this is cool,” said D.J. Fernandez, 26, of Rockville, Md. (Apparently, 26 no longer counts as young.)

Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., echoed that sentiment. “We have to show people who didn’t vote why it matters,” he said. “If we can get millennials to vote, then we can win elections even if we don’t convert Republicans.”

9-Year-Old Boy Found Dead A Week After His Mother And 2-Year-Old Mother Murdered

The body of an Arkansas 9-year-old boy, who had been missing since earlier week, has been found days after police found his mother and 2-year-old sister murdered. 

Police announced that they found a body believed to be Reilly Scarbrough’s shortly after noon Saturday in a “heavily wooded area” near Hatfield.

10 DEADLY chemicals cigarette manufacturers don’t want you to know about

Image: 10 DEADLY chemicals cigarette manufacturers don’t want you to know about

(Natural News) We all know smoking is bad for us, yet millions of people still smoke. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 15 percent of Americans, or more than 40 million people, still light up a cigarette everyday. Compared to the 42 percent of the population that smoked in 1965, it seems like we are making some progress.

Despite all the efforts being made, smoking remains the number one cause of preventable death in the United States, killing some 443,000 Americans every year. As stated by the CDC, smoking kills more people than obesity, drug abuse, infectious disease, firearms, and traffic accidents.

But what exactly is it that makes cigarettes so bad for our health? While we all know about the addictive effects of nicotine, not many people realize that cigarettes contain more than 4000 other chemicals. Of these chemicals, at least 40 are known carcinogens, and 400 are proven to be toxic to some degree.

Are you a smoker? Let’s look at ten of the most toxic substances found in cigarettes. Hopefully, this article will make you think twice before lighting up your next cigarette.

1.      Benzene

In humans, benzene has been linked to leukemia or blood cancer, anemia, genetic damage, and excessive bleeding. It is one of the most basic chemicals used in the petrochemical industry and present in crude oil, gasoline, and pesticides. Cigarette smoke accounts for about half of the benzene exposure in the United States.

2.      Formaldehyde

Used to preserve dead bodies and kill microbes, formaldehyde can cause eye irritation and coughing, among other health-related issues for both smokers and passive (second hand) smokers.

3.      Tar

Tar, the black sticky compound added to road-making materials is also produced when tobacco is burned. It has been linked to cancer and turns your teeth yellow.

4.      Arsenic

Another dangerous, cancer-causing chemical found in cigarettes is arsenic. Arsenic can accumulate in the body over time. Since it can interfere with the body’s ability to repair DNA, it may also boost the effect of other health-damaging chemicals.

5.      Cadmium

Cadmium, also used in the production of batteries, is a toxic metal found in cigarettes. Not only has it been linked to cancer, but exposure to this chemical can also damage the kidneys and the linings of arteries.

6.      Chromium

You may know chromium from dyes, paints, and metallic alloys. When inhaled, this chemical acts as the glue between carcinogens and DNA, resulting in total DNA damage which may cause cancer or other health related issues.

7.      Hydrogen cyanide

Hydrogen cyanide is a known carcinogen that damages the cilia in the lungs. These hair-like structures line the airways and help clear toxins from the body. When these cilia get destroyed, toxins can enter the bloodstream more quickly via the lungs.

8.      Carbon monoxide

Carbon monoxide, or CO, is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas released whenever fuel or cigarettes are burned. Tobacco smoke contains 3 to 5 percent CO. CO affects the whole body by binding to red blood cells, which results in less oxygen being transported throughout the body.

9.      Nitrogen oxide

Nitrogen oxide is a common air pollutant also found in cigarette smoke. It causes lung inflammation and heavy breathing in regular smokers.

10.  Ammonia

Ammonia, commonly found in many households to clean toilet bowls, is also found in cigarettes. In fact, ammonia is the chemical in cigarettes that enhances the addictive effect of nicotine.

These chemicals are only the tip of the iceberg. If we convinced you to quit this unhealthy habit, find more information and help at

All Time Low release official music video for ‘Life of the Party’

With the release of their seventh studio album coming up, All Time Low have put out another brand new track from it. To go along with the new song, which is called “Life of the Party,” the band posted the official music video for it on YouTube. The video was directed by Patrick Tracy, and it revolves around a guy who goes from being the life of the party to a drunken mess. 

All Time Low’s “Life of the Party” music video is the third one they’ve released this year. The other two videos were also directed by Patrick Tracy, and were for their songs “Last Young Renegade,” and “Dirty Laundry.” Both of those tracks plus “Life of the Party” are on the band’s upcoming seventh studio album, Last Young Renegade

The album Last Young Renegade is set to come out June 2 via Fueled by Ramen. Their last five albums were all put out by Hopeless Records, so this marks the band’s first release with their new label. It’ll be the follow-up to their 2015 album, Future Hearts

This summer All Time Low will embark on their Young Renegades Tour, which kicks off June 30 in Houston. Tickets for select shows of their upcoming tour are on sale now at AXS here

Migos reveal upcoming collaboration with One Direction’s Liam Payne

Rap trio Migos have been on a tear since releasing their hit single “Bad and Boujee” back in October, then getting a shout out from Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) at the Golden Globes after their appearance on Atlanta. The hip-hop group made up of rappers Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have since been featured on songs by pop megastars in Calvin Harris and Katy Perry, made some highly talked about cameos at Coachella and will apparently be putting out a collaboration with One Direction’s Liam Payne in the near future.

As reported by Hot New Hip Hop, the group recently did an on-air interview with UK radio personality Tim Westwood. In addition to talking about an upcoming compilation project featuring artists on their Quality Control label, they also let some details slip on what they may have coming out with the famous boy band singer.

“I just came from a video today. My boy Liam from One Direction,” Quavo says around the 8:20 minute mark, as seen in the interview’s video below. “We just shot that. Crazy vid. Crazy visuals. Crazy team. Cool guy, nice guy. It’s goin’ up. I wasn’t even supposed to say that. It’s gonna be a surprise though.”

This would be the first news of an upcoming project by Payne, who would presumably be teaming up with the hip-hop group for his debut as a solo artist. Payne’s former bandmate, Harry Styles, recently released his own debut single as a solo artist with “Sign of the Times.”
