A father’s greatest duty is to protect his family.
Johnny Bridges was forced to fulfill that duty late last week. According to ABC Cleveland, three armed men grabbed Mr. Bridges’s fiancé as she left the family’s home to take their kids to camp. Thankfully Mr. Bridges saw the men accosting his fiancé and was able to grab his firearm.
As the armed criminals tried to force Mr. Bridges’s fiancé back into the home he shot one of the men and forced them to flee.
His fiancé and kids are now safe thanks to his actions.
“I just wanted to make sure my family was alright” Mr. Bridges said.
WRIC is reporting that a woman in Chesterfield Virginia used a gun to shot her husband as he was attacking her. Witnesses reportedly corroborate the woman’s claim that she used the gun in self-defense. The man is apparently in the hospital and awaiting charges while the woman is not expected to be charged.
“We determined there was a domestic altercation and the wife had acted in self-defense” said Chesterfield Police lieutenant RandyHorowitz. (h/t Guns Save Lives)
If not for the firearm she used, how would this woman have stopped her attack? Without the gun she fired in self-defense she may have had to endure a harsher beating and, maybe, even worse. The gun she used may have very well saved her life.
It seems to me that it would be very instructive to see where all those who’d take our firearms and, by extension, our right to self defense come down on this case. Do they think this battered wife should be disarmed? Was it wrong for her to shoot her husband as he beat her? Should other women who feel physically threatened by somebody close to them follow this woman’s example or not?
James O’Keefe is back with another sting video. This time he and Project Veritas are embarrassing anti-gun journalists. Watch as the hypocrisy of many in the liberal media’s campaign against guns is exposed for all to see.
Interesting… so, these anti-gun crusaders are afraid that if criminals know their homes are gun free because they don’t want to be caught defenseless against them?
That’s the month Green Day released the first single off it’s iconic pile of crap known as American Idiot. The catchy little tune about how evil and stupid Republicans are became a quick hit. Sitting right there in the middle of our pop culture and, therefore, in the middle of our minds just before the election was the line “don’t wanna be an American idiot”.
In case any of you missed this the first time around… which might not be a lot of you considering it was on the front page of Yahoo and garnered over 120,000 views… here is the Scott Walker tribute video I made with some friends.
Conservative filmmaker John Ziegler had an altercation/argument/verbal-fight with nut job Daily Beast columnist today in the Omni Shoreham lobby at CPAC. Apparently things got very out of hand and almost physical. Check out this early video from James Joyner at OTB, whom I met by the way (Via The Other McCain):
I know the sound quality is terrible but the visuals tell you all you need to know for the moment. Apparently Max Blumenthal had a video crew with him so you can expect a higher quality version out sometime soon I would guess.
But after all this stuff went down John Ziegler came over to bloggers’ row and was explaining what had happened to me and several other bloggers. Here is that video (there’s a curse word or two so be careful):
Yikes… the things that happen at CPAC
UPDATE: My new lefty blogger friend, Tommy Christopher of Aol and DailyDose, was able to track down Max Blumenthal and get his side of the story. He was even nice enough to splice the two interviews together into this jaw dropping video:
Well, not if your the Los Angeles Times I guess. They have refused to release the video to the public. Now, they’ve given several different reasons why since this story came to light but I think their motives are pretty obvious (especially if these claims prove to be true). They simply don’t want to hurt their candidate, sure the LA Times will say that they were the ones who first reported about the tape, but we all know that video of Obama praising a nut job like Khalidi would hurt him far more than a description of Obama speaking at an event involving a nut job like Khalidi, especially when that description is written by a hack organization like the LA Times.
