Sheriff Israel Thinks No Confidence Vote Was about Pay Raises

The Broward County deputies have voted and the results are in: 534 union members voted no confidence, while 94 said they had confidence in the sheriff. According to the Union President Jeff Bell, this was the first time they’ve ever held a vote like this.

Sheriff Israel told news outlets at a press conference that “I am accountable to the citizens of Broward County. My job is to continue to do the job I was elected to do, which is to ensure the safety of Broward County’s 1.9 million residents.”

He also said that he thinks the deputies who voted no are mad about not getting a pay raise.

From ABC:

“I will not be distracted from my duties by this inconsequential IUPA union vote, which was designed to extort a 6.5 percent pay raise from this agency. Those who purportedly voted in this straw ballot reflect only a small number of the 5,400 BSO employees. The unions representing the vast majority of our employees solidly support the leadership of this agency.”

Sheriff Israel is delusional and it’s way past time for him to be fired.

Hilariously, when the union president called to tell him the news, he didn’t even pick up the phone. Instead he let it go to voicemail.

Must be too busy being an amazing leader and protecting cowardly cops who won’t go in a school to engage an active shooter.

Former Football Player Faces Backlash Over Daughter’s Prom Photo

Former NFL player Jay Feely posted a photo with his daughter and her date on Prom night. In the photo, Feely is holding a gun and the caption reads: “Wishing my beautiful daughter and her date a great time at prom

Unless you’ve been living under a rock your whole life, you’ve heard the joke about dads cleaning their guns while the boyfriend is at the house to send a signal not to do anything to hurt their daughter.

People were not amused. (I found it hilarious and obviously her prom date is in on it. )

The feminists somehow took it as a sign of ownership. Whatever.

Some are even calling for him to be taken off CBS sports.

Feely apologized but HE SHOULDN’T HAVE TO. It was posted in fun, the weapon was not aimed at her boyfriend and people need to calm down and have a sense of humor.

 

David and Lauren Hogg are Writing a Book

You had to see this one coming. David Hogg and his sister Lauren are writing a book. Entitled #NeverAgain, it will feature  a forward written by Parkland student and activist Emma Gonzalez.

David’s sister Lauren says the book “tells the story of how we turned our grief into action and how we fight and speak out for those who no longer can.”

From the synopsis on Amazon:

This book is a manifesto for the movement begun that day, one that has already changed America–with voices of a new generation that are speaking truth to power, and are determined to succeed where their elders have failed. With moral force and clarity, a new generation has made it clear that problems previously deemed unsolvable due to powerful lobbies and political cowardice will be theirs to solve. Born just after Columbine and raised amid seemingly endless war and routine active shooter drills, this generation now says, Enough. This book is their statement of purpose, and the story of their lives. It is the essential guide to the #NeverAgain movement.

The book will be released on June 5th and according to the Hoggs’, all proceeds will benefit healing in the Parkland community as well as fighting gun violence, but name no specific organizations to which they are donating.

Assault Style Weapons Pulled from Dick’s Shelves Will be Destroyed

Back in February, Dick’s Sporting Goods announced they would be pulling all assault style weapons from their Field & Stream store shelves, along with raising the age to buy firearms in their stores to 21.  Their stores would also no longer carry high capacity magazines or sell bump stocks.

Dick’s had pulled the weapons off the shelves in their main stores after Sandy Hook, but the offshoot store Field & Stream was still carrying semi-automatic riffles.

Many have wondered what the chain would do with the unsold merchandise and now we have an answer: Dick’s is destroying  all of it.

The Pittsburgh-Post Gazette reports that the guns are being destroyed at Dick’s distribution centers and the company is following guidelines outlined by the federal government to complete the process. Parts will be sent to a salvage company for recycling.

A spokesperson for Dick’s did not say how much merchandise was being destroyed and also did not comment on what the retailer did with the guns they pulled in 2012.

Most of the response on Twitter was positive.

 

Charlie Kirk Unwelcome at Parkland High School

Charlie Kirk, the founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, was recently invited to speak to students about the right to bear arms by outspoken 2A advocate and Marjorie Stoneman Douglas high school student Kyle Kashuv.

Kirk was excited about the opportunity, posting on his Twitter account that “I have been invited by students at Parkland high school to come as a guest speaker in the coming 2 weeks. I excitedly accept and look forward to discussing our right to bear arms in front of a captive student audience This is of course unless I get blocked by the administration.”

Twenty-four hours later, school administrators vetoed the idea, stating through spokesperson Cathleen Brennan that “The school’s administration has met with the student organizers and advised them that non-school sponsored, student-initiated guest speaker assemblies/meetings are not permitted to take place on campus.”

In addition to students protesting the event, some parents suggested that Kirk and Kashuv hold their forum off campus because the wounds of the school shooting are still too fresh.

Kashuv believes school administrators are trying to silence pro-Second Amendment discussion. He also points out NBA player Dwyane Wade visited the school after meeting with victim’s parents and donating to March for Our Lives.

Since the event can’t be held on campus, Kirk and Kashuv will be holding it off campus at a location to be determined.

 

 

Trump Supporting College Student Triggers Left with Senior Portrait

Brenna Spencer, a senior at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, turned some heads and triggered some liberals when she posted this photo on her Twitter account. In the photo, Brenna is wearing a Women for Trump shirt and has her firearm tucked into her white jeans.

Her caption reads, “I don’t take normal college graduation photos…”

She told ABC that the photo is intended “show who I am as a person,” and “I did think that it would get a little attention but not to this degree,” she said. “It was really, really surprising to see the amount of hate that I got.”

Some users were supportive but as you can imagine, the photo drove the anti-gun crowd absolutely nuts.

Way to be different, Brenna! Best of luck to you as you start your career and keep fighting for the things you believe in. It’s nice to see some conservative millennials DO exist, contrary to what the mainstream media would have you believe.

Mayor of London reaches a level of stupidity rarely seen

As you may or may not know, banning guns dramatically reduces crime. Because if there’s one thing we all know it’s that criminals follow laws.

With that kind of sound reasoning, it makes perfect sense that the United Kingdom would enforce a strict gun policy.  In fact, in order to obtain a gun in the UK, you must apply then submit to a number of interviews and even an inspection of your property and even then it must be deemed that you have a good reason to own the firearm.

Even approximately 90 percent of London’s police force do not carry guns. It would be funny, if it wasn’t real.

But hey, the Brits are protecting themselves because, you know guns kill and if you limit guns, you limit the amount of murder/crime, or as they would have you believe.

Well, recently London has seen an absurd surge in the amount of deadly knife attacks. According to the “failing” New York Times, 50 people have been the victims of fatal knife attacks since the beginning of the year.

But keep in mind, if you get rid of the object, crime/murder will go away and criminals will magically follow the laws. Anyway, this brings us to Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London.

Khan, using all of his brainpower, has said it will now become virtually impossible to own a knife in his city.

Again, it would be hilarious if it wasn’t real.

Dude, must have a tough time with sarcasm. When people mockingly said “ban knives,” it wasn’t a serious policy suggestion, this genius must have thought otherwise. And here, I always thought it was the Germans who didn’t have a sense of humor.

Like banning guns didn’t stop murders, I don’t think limiting banning knifes will help much, either.

Just think, if they come for your knifes, what’s next? Your spoon? Your chopsticks? The always confusing sporks?
