The United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi has found that Leaf River Cellulose in New Augusta, MS, is liable to Joseph Parker for terminating him for lawfully having a firearm in in his locked, private vehicle in the employer’s parking lot. Such termination is in violation of Mississippi Code section 45-9-55. The case will now proceed to a trial on the issue of compensatory and punitive damages.

SSA ban

On May 18 the Social Security Administration announced:

We are removing from the Code of Federal Regulations the final rules, Implementation of the NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007 (NIAA), published on December 19, 2016. We are doing so because Congress passed, and the President signed, a joint resolution of disapproval of the final rules under the Congressional Review Act.

The Social Security gun ban allowed the SSA to strip certain recipients of their Second Amendment rights without due process. It did this by allowing the SSA to investigate beneficiaries who received help managing finances and were subject to a broad mental health label, but who were not necessarily incompetent or dangerous.

Take your kid to work day

A perp in San Antonio allegedly tried to break in to a house through a window in the room where the female homeowner happened to be asleep. The homeowner heard the suspect trying to break in, armed herself, and shot at him at least twice. Police arrived in time to transport the perp to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police also discovered the dead perp’s unharmed 7-year-old son at the scene.


A group of law enforcement brass and other gun banners led by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly are launching yet another lame lobbying effort to oppose congressional bills which would relax federal regulation of silencers and provide for national concealed carry. The group claims that the bills would make law enforcement less safe, saying “It is clear that guns in dangerous hands make law enforcement officers more vulnerable.” In other words, they say CCW holders are killing cops.

They’re lying. As usual. For the record, CCW holders are the most law-abiding group anyone has been able to compile, including police.


We have a report that Henry Hudson is one of the people being considered for FBI director. Hudson was director of the US Marshals Service during the Ruby Ridge debacle. Our source says he is not respected by most marshals, and many blame him for the fiasco at Ruby Ridge.

Former Orlando Police Chief Val Demings, now a US Representative (D-FL-10), who was censured by the internal affairs division when she was chief for irresponsibly losing her issue gun, now says that her rights are “different from yours.”

ATF warns of ‘growing trend’ of illegal gun dealing by cops

Miami-Dade police Officer Michael Freshko has been charged in federal court with conspiracy to illegally export six firearms. Prosecutors say Freshko, who was assigned to Miami International Airport, used his position to smuggle guns into the airport without going through screening. The guns were given to an associate who took them aboard commercial flights to the Dominican Republic. The conspiracy charge carries a maximum 5-year sentence.
