Massive Trove of Gun Owners’ Private Information Leaked by California Attorney General
California gun owners have been put at risk by the Attorney General’s office after a new dashboard leaked their personal information.

The California Department of Justice’s 2022 Firearms Dashboard Portal went live on Monday with publicly-accessible files that include identifying information for those who have concealed carry permits. The leaked information includes the person’s full name, home address, date of birth, and date their permit was issued. The data also shows the type of permit issued, indicating if the permit holder is a member of law enforcement or a judge.

The Reload reviewed a copy of the Lost Angeles County database and found 244 judge permits listed in the database. The files included the home addresses, full names, and dates of birth for all of them. The same was true for seven custodial officers, 63 people with a place of employment permit, and 420 reserve officers.

2,891 people in Los Angeles County with standard licenses also had their information compromised by the leak, though the database appears to include some duplicate entries as well. The databases with detailed information were initially available for download via a button on the website’s mapping feature. They appeared to have been removed from public access by Tuesday afternoon and replaced with spreadsheets without the individualized identifying information.

And, of course...

The office of Attorney General Rob Bonta (D.) did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

They will claim that this was an error but it was by design.  Get the guns in the hands of the criminals.  Disarm the middle-class.  Let crime increase.  Cloward-Piven Strategy here we come...


UPDATE: Tried the website again (two hours after the initial post) and it now shows the following:


Looks like they might have had a little bit of push-back.  Good.

Seattle station KIRO:

King County reports ‘disturbing number’ of people shot in annual report
A new report from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office shows an alarming increase in gun violence in 2021 over the four years prior.

And the numbers:

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office released its fifth annual ‘Shots Fired Report’ Monday, confirming what many had assumed and it made clear what many assume – 2021 was a violent year in our community.

The numbers in the report, show a staggering 1,405 shots fired incidents during the 2021 calendar year – a 54% increase over the average from the four years prior.

In total, there were 460 fatal and non-fatal shooting victims, a 70% increase.

Of those, there were 372 non-fatal shooting victims, that’s up 82% – and 88 fatalities, a 54% increase.

A little hint - it's not the guns.  It's the criminals.  Defund the police and this is what you get.

Not legal - from The Washington Free Beacon:

Biden Admin Amassing Millions of Records on US Gun Owners Amid New Crackdown on Firearms
The Biden administration in just the past year alone stockpiled the records of more than 54 million U.S. gun owners and is poised to drastically alter gun regulations to ensure that information on Americans who own firearms ultimately ends up in the federal government's hands, according to internal Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The ATF in fiscal year 2021 processed 54.7 million out-of-business records, according to an internal ATF document obtained by the Gun Owners of America, a firearms advocacy group, and provided exclusively to the Free Beacon. When a licensed gun store goes out of business, its private records detailing gun transactions become ATF property and are stored at a federal site in West Virginia. This practice allows the federal government to stockpile scores of gun records and has drawn outrage from gun advocacy groups that say the government is using this information to create a national database of gun owners—which has long been prohibited under U.S. law.

Does not bother me - I lost all of my guns in the horrible boating accident of 2007 - why I brought them all along, I will never know.

The overreach of this regime is unreal - they are pushing on every front.

Gun violence - St. Louis

| No Comments

From the London Daily Mail:

'Oh, isn't that wonderful': Mayor of St. Louis doesn't flinch when when her press conference on violent crime in her city is interrupted by gunfire

    • St. Louis mayor Tishaura Jones was speaking to the press about efforts to reduce violent crime when what sounded like gunshots went off
    • Jones did not miss a beat, barely reacting and sarcastically saying 'Oh isn't that wonderful,' before getting back to the topic at hand
    • Jones explained that because she was born and raised in St. Louis, the sound of gunfire was nothing new to her
    • Mayor Jones and Lucas' press conference comes as homicides have gone down in St. Louis City

More at the article - no numbers on total gunshot victims for this year.  It would be interesting to compare.
Look at Portland - she has come so far... Good job Portland!!!

Portland still has a way to go

Compared to Chicago - they are working on it though... From Frontpage Magazine:

Eloi and Morlocks in Portlandia
9-year-old Hadar Kedem was playing with her father, brother, and family dog in a Portland city park when the gunmen came and the bullets began flying. 

And the numbers?

Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the police defunding movement had taken Portland from 388 shootings in 2019 to over 1,000 this year. Murders in Rose City rose by 83% breaking its previous high score set in 1987. As the Black Lives Matter race riots got underway, Portland went from 23 shootings in March 2020 to 104 by July of that same year. By March 2021, there were 93 shootings. Gone were the pleasant days of 2019 when Portlanders might complain about 30 shootings. The summer of 2021 saw around 400 shootings: more than in all of 2019.

And the reaction of the WOKE?

Shoshana Gugenheim Kedem, Hadar’s mother, an “insectional feminist” who “dismantles patriarchy”, and advocated for “Palestinian rights”, denounced her daughter’s “white privilege”.

“We are a white family of privilege,” the leftist hipster artist confessed. “No one in our family wants to see the result of this be more police presence at parks. That’s not the answer.”

What was the answer?

Gugenheim insisted that instead of police, the solution to a dozen men opening fire in the park was dealing with root causes, "services for disadvantaged communities", "education", "gun control", and "a task force of people with equity training to tackle the issue of gun violence".

Unreal.  Chicago has a population of 2,679,080 and Portland has a population of 662,549 - Chicago's is 4.043 times larger.

Year-to-date, Chicago has had 3,906 shootings and Portland is right at 1,000 - this is 3.9 times larger. One in 662 Portlandians will get shot while one in 685 residents of the Windy City will get shot.  Approaching a really desirable record there people... How long will it take for them to realize that unicorn farts do not stop bullets. Police do.

The Alec Baldwin disaster

Raconteur Report has the definitive précis of yesterday's shooting:

Karma Is A Cast-Iron Bitch
1) Of course they use real guns on movie sets. Since ever. File under "Duh!"

2) Some propmaster dun fucked up, massively, and should shortly be charged for manslaughter and aggravated battery via gross negligence. There should NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER be live rounds on the main set, let alone anywhere near prop weapons.

3) It's not the actor's job to ensure safety of prop weapons used on set, it's the propmaster and the weapon's handler's job. Weapons are supposed to be double-checked on loading to prevent this sort of cock-up.

4) It's likely that when Baldwin was shooting, he was, almost certainly exactly per rehearsals and blocking, aiming at the camera. Which is where the director of photography and director sit, 90% of the time. And in real life, there's no way to tell you've fired a real bullet rather than a blank after the first shot, until bodies hit the ground. Blood doesn't explode from people's chests, they just crumple. Be glad it was a western, and not a gangster film. He could have taken out a swath of people, instead of just the two he hit.

{We add in amendment, that if, instead, Baldwin was waving the gun around off-camera, and pulling the trigger, or some other form of jackassery, he should be charged and convicted like any other perp. We find that unlikely in the circumstances, but not entirely impossible. See #6, below. We look forward to a definitive explanation as this story develops.}

Six more at the site plus this little nugget:

And just to doubly piss you off a little more, this is one of the reasons that motion picture productions that have fled SoCal to non-union states always have these sorts of fuck-ups. When productions go off the reservation and hire unprofessional non-union fuck-ups for a cut rate, they get what they pay for. In this case, a dead DP, a wounded director, and an actor who will, to a metaphysical certainty, be justifiably be scarred for life. Not to mention metric fucktons of bad publicity for the event.

Baldwin is one of the producers of the film.

From America's Newspaper of Record:

Rednecks Dress Up As Taliban So Biden Will Give Them Billions Of Dollars In Firearms
After hearing that Biden was giving away entire arsenals of weapons to the Taliban for free, Republican rednecks throughout America are disguising themselves as the Taliban in hopes of scoring some AR-15s and maybe some Black Hawk helicopters.

Upon seeing new Taliban outposts spring up in red states throughout the country, a terrified Biden surrendered to them unconditionally.

The surrender was total and immediate, with Biden agreeing to all of the rednecks' outrageous terms such as "stop taxing us an insane amount" and "let's stop killing babies, K?"

"Republicans are just like the Taliban? Then I would like to immediately and unconditionally withdraw from their territories and surrender," Biden said to his aides. "Tell them we'll give them whatever they want. Abandon all federal personnel. We need to get out of there immediately. Leave behind all equipment and facilities. Leave no stone... turned? Whatever the expression is that makes sense here."

Biden then addressed the nation in a moving speech.

"My fellow Americans, we find ourselves in a grave situation," he said. Kamala Harris jumped up, excited, at the word "grave" but aides informed her she misunderstood the context and she sadly sat back down. "Republican redneck Taliban have taken over Kentucky and Texas and all the other red states, and we must meet all of their demands and pull out right away. This is a dark day for America, but I can assure you, it is all Trump's fault. Now, where's my pudding?"

At publishing time, sources at the White House had confirmed that Biden had given Republican rednecks over $80 billion in firearms and other military equipment.

Don't really have the space for a Black Hawk but would love a couple AR-15's and maybe a Barrett.
And ammo.  Joe - send more ammo...

From Reuters:

Taliban in Afghan capital Kabul start collecting weapons from civilians
Taliban fighters in the Afghan capital, Kabul, started collecting weapons from civilians on Monday because people no longer need them for personal protection, a Taliban official said.

"We understand people kept weapons for personal safety. They can now feel safe. We are not here to harm innocent civilians," the official told Reuters.

I am reminded of this quote from Mohandas K. Gandhi:

Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look back upon the Act depriving the whole nation of arms as the blackest.

Tyrants always want to disarm the people under their control.  It makes them easier to manage.  More tractable.
Less "uppity". Case in point?  Our Congress.

Fantastic luck in Denver, Colorado

From the London Daily Mail:

Maid praised as a hero after she alerts authorities to massive weapon stash in Denver hotel close to Coors Field - four days before MLB All-Star game

    • The unnamed maid on Friday reported the find she stumbled upon at the Maven
    • She found 16 long guns, over 1,000 rounds of ammo and body armor
    • On Tuesday Denver hosts the MLB All-Star game at Coors Field, near the hotel
    • Initial fears were that the three men and one woman were planning an attack
    • On Sunday the FBI said they now believe there was no plan to attack the game
    • Instead authorities believe the haul was connected to a drugs deal

A maid at a hotel in Denver has been praised for reporting to authorities a significant weapons stash in one of the rooms, which authorities initially feared could be used for a Vegas-style mass shooting.

Four people have been arrested - with one of the four, a recent divorcee, posting a cryptic Facebook message saying he would 'go out in a big way.'

On Sunday the FBI in Denver said they did not believe the arrests were connected to Tuesday's MLB All-Star game at Coors Field.

'We have no reason to believe this incident was connected to terrorism or a threat directed at the All-Star Game,' they tweeted.

Naaa - the FBI does not want to admit that they had not been aware of the danger so they concocted this phantom drug deal.  Who brings that much firepower to a drug deal?  You want repeat business on both sides, not a confrontational one-time operation. A handgun or two for sure.  Rifles? Not useable for short-range shooting in a hotel room - rifles are for reaching out and touching someone. Handguns are not accurate past ten feet or so - not useable for sniping.  This was a long-distance shoot.

Can't lead.  In over her head. Calls "the big guy" for help. New York Post:

Chicago mayor asks Biden for help after bloody July 4 weekend
President Biden was met at O’Hare International Airport Wednesday by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot following a deadly Independence Day weekend in the Windy City.

The president was greeted by Lightfoot and Illinois’ Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker as he arrived in Chicago but he didn’t focus much time on the more than 100 shootings over the holiday as it was just a quick stop for him en route to suburban McHenry County for an event touting his Build Back Better initiative.

According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, Biden reiterated his commitment to working with Lightfoot and city leaders to counter gun violence and added that the Department of Justice would soon be in touch about a recently announced strike force meant to crack down on gun trafficking in Chicago and four other cities — including New York.

Let's see now - July 4th weekend. 108 shootings. 17 fatalities.  How many were by legally owned guns? Zero.  How many were done by police officer? Zero. And yet, they want to take our legally owned guns away to "solve" their problem. Their problem stares at themselves in the mirror when they brush their teeth.

From the fine people at Black Rifle Coffee:

Gun crime - a simple observation

| No Comments

Nothing takes the wind out of the sails of an anti-gun argument like the truth.
Here is just one example:


From ABC News:

Millions of rounds of ammunition stolen on Mexican highway
Two trailer loads of small-caliber ammunition bound for the United States were stolen by armed assailants on a highway in Mexico’s most violent state, Guanajuato, the manufacturer said Friday.

A company representative said about 98.5% of the millions of rounds of ammo stolen earlier this week were .22 caliber, which is seldom used by Mexican drug cartels.

“These will be of no use to them, given that they don’t use these weapons,” said security analyst Juan Ibarrola, who also acts as spokesman for the Tecnos Industries company

The .22 rounds are used mainly in rifles for target practice or extremely small game. Mexican cartels prefer larger, high-velocity ammunition for AK-47 and AR-15 rifles or 9 mm weapons.

The total quantity was not clear, but was estimated to be about 7 million rounds. The ammunition is sold in the United States under the Aguila brand.

A lot to unload - .22 sells for just under 25¢ / round. 7 million rounds = $1.75M MSRP  Figure they are going to have to transport the two trailers, unload and repackage them and fence them, they would be looking at about $500K.  A nice chunk of change but a lot of work for it. Lots of people to buy off.

One of my pistols (rather, one I had before that horrible boating accident of 2014), is was a Kel-Tec PMR-30 - a lot of fun to shoot. Not a defensive round by any means.

Good news for hoplophiles everywhere - from the New York Post:

US judge overturns California’s ban on assault weapons
A federal judge on Friday overturned California’s long-standing assault weapons ban on constitutional grounds.

US District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego ruled that the 1989 ban on military-style rifles deprives state residents of their right to bear arms.

“Under no level of heightened scrutiny can the law survive,” Benitez said.

“Like the Swiss Army knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment. Good for both home and battle,” the judge said in his ruling’s introduction.

More murders are committed by pistol than by rifle.  More murders are committed by blunt-force trauma than by rifle. From the good Judge:

“This is an average case about average guns used in average ways for average purposes,” the ruling said. “One is to be forgiven if one is persuaded by news media and others that the nation is awash with murderous AR-15 assault rifles. The facts, however, do not support this hyperbole, and facts matter.”

“In California, murder by knife occurs seven times more often than murder by rifle,” he added.

Indeed. Nice to see common sense prevail.

Are they locating and "collecting" potential terrorists and crazy gunmen and then, when it fits the narrative, they nudge them into action? Whenever a mass shooting happens, it always turns out that the feds knew about the goblin but never notified the local Law Enforcement. Here we go again - from USA Today:

San Jose wasn't alerted that feds once detained rail yard killer for terrorist books, hateful writings, DA says
Local authorities in the San Jose area weren't notified in 2016 after federal officers detained the man accused of killing nine of his co-workers this week and found him with books about terrorism and writings detailing his hatred of the rail yard where he worked, the Santa Clara County District Attorney told USA TODAY.

The information could have helped local law enforcement and the suspect's employer potentially mitigate the attack Wednesday that took the lives of nine employees of the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) light rail hub in San Jose, District Attorney Jeff Rosen said in an interview.

"The DA's office was not notified," Rosen said, adding he wasn't aware of a single agency in the area that was told this information. "I would like to have known this in 2016."

And yeah - he had a manifesto.  All these goblins have manifestos. A distinguishing mark.

This fits a little too well.  Looks like a duck. Walks like a duck. Sounds like a duck.
Awfully convenient for the gun grabbing crowd.
2017 Mandalay Bay shooting in Vegas anyone? Still waiting on that.
