If you won one of the big prizes on the lottery, you wouldn't have plenty. The security team you employ would insist, that you don't carry, because you would be a liability.

There is carry and there is collector's items, new never fired ... .

Is this the beginning of the realization that an over-abundance of guns have consequences?

There needs to be yet more push-back against those that make a deadly profit from guns...


Alex Jones files for bankruptcy after Sandy Hook verdict
wrote:
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has filed for personal bankruptcy after he was ordered to pay...

... Following the filing, a lawyer representing the families said "the bankruptcy system does not protect anyone who engages in intentional and egregious attacks on others".

"Like every other cowardly move Alex Jones has made, this bankruptcy will not work," Chris Mattei said in a statement.

Jones, who founded the conspiracy-laden Infowars website and talk show, argued for years that the Sandy Hook shooting was a "staged" government plot to take guns from Americans and that "no-one died". He called the parents of the 20 children who died "crisis actors" and argued that some of them never actually existed. He now acknowledges the attack was "100% real", a concession he made in August at a separate defamation trial in Texas.

Families who lost loved ones in the shooting alleged Jones' lies led to years of death threats, intimidation and other forms of harassment from his followers.

Jones still faces a third defamation trial over the Sandy Hook shooting...



Nasty on all counts...

All in the USA?

It seems that if they can't find people to shoot then power substations make the next best alternative.

...Mike Cameron, Southern Pines' assistant town manager and fire chief, told the Raleigh News and Observer that Duke Energy officials informed him that two substations were hit with gunfire....

Trump calls for the termination of the Constitution in Truth Social post wrote:
Former President Donald Trump called for the termination of the Constitution to overturn the 2020 election and reinstate him to power Saturday in a continuation of his election denialism and pushing of fringe conspiracy theories.

Does that include the Second Amendment?! Yes, you heard that right he wants the power to seize guns!

It seems obvious that judges don't want the killing fields to stop and going against popular opinion.

Oregon judge extends ban on parts of tough new gun law.

And what is it with these morons?

Meanwhile at yet another school.

2 killed, 2 wounded in shooting outside a Chicago high school.

And in a good move the TSA is raising fines after finding record guns in carry-ons.

Wyoming Politician Nina Webber Charged with Reckless Endangerment in Hunting Incident.

The Park County Sheriff's Office charged two-time state representative candidate Nina Webber with misdemeanor reckless endangerment after she shot in the direction of a home on Nov. 30, the Powell Tribune reports. The incident occurred during an elk hunt near Wapiti, Wyoming. It involved multiple unnamed hunters and Webber, who allegedly fired multiple shots toward a nearby highway while shooting at a herd of elk on private land. Nearby Trout Brook Ranch owner Cory Williams and his wife were outside at the time, and they said they had to hide behind their vehicles as bullets flew overhead....

...The property where the group was hunting is privately owned by James Montgomery, and it's known by locals as a major pinch point for elk, according to Big Horn Radio. Located between the river and the highway, the 96-acre tract is surrounded by farms and residential properties.

“You had vehicles deterring the elk away from crossing the highway and hunters on the highway-side shooting across the river, and hunters on the river-side shooting across the highway," one anonymous source said. "These hunters were practically cross-firing each other.”...

Some just can't get enough blood $'s.

How a Gun Exec Allegedly Conned Cops Into Funding His Swanky Lifestyle.

When Indonesian security forces needed new weaponry, a high-level executive at America’s largest firearms exporter saw an opportunity to personally enrich himself using an international network of relatives and associates to launder millions in ill-gotten gains.

That’s according to a search warrant affidavit obtained by The Daily Beast, which reveals Amaro Goncalves, a vice president of global defense sales at Sig Sauer’s U.S. headquarters in Seabrook, New Hampshire, came under investigation for surreptitiously overbilling the Indonesian police, military, and intelligence services by up to 600 percent over several years.

The 36-page affidavit, which was filed in 2020 but quietly unsealed on Thursday, claims Goncalves used the illicit funds to pay for, among other things, one child’s tuition at Babson College, various relatives’ credit card bills, and his niece’s six-figure wedding at a swanky seaside resort in New Hampshire.....

....For more than a year, the feds say Goncalves took advantage of the intense international interest in the 9mm semi-automatic P320 to dupe his Indonesian buyers into vastly overpaying for the pistol. Each one was worth about $350, but Goncalves jacked up the price to $1,650 per handgun, according to the affidavit....
