Homeland Security Wants 7,000 AR-15s For “Personal Defense.” Remember, YOU don’t need an evil black AR-15, but they do. We wonder why? Must be so they can shoot up those billions of rounds of ammo they’re buying.

With the direction that gun control / coming confiscation is heading , they might need them .

In the movie ” Terminator ” , a pregnant Sarah is traveling through Mexico . She stops for gas and a young Mexican boy takes her picture . A little hustle goes on , then she buys the photo . The little boy then tell her ” There’s a storm coming ” . She replies ” Yes I know “.

In August 2005 , a category 5 hurricane named Katrina was bearing down on New Orleans . The very foolish saw the storm coming and did nothing .

Folks we have a storm coming . This may not end well.

Gee, this must mean they’re going to start getting serious about protecting the border with Mexico…no? Maybe the TSA is just getting tired of hearing so much back talk from the traveling public and plans to start shooting more insolent peasants.

He wants a confrontation in order to be able to sue, there are many like this today, claiming to be “photojournalists”, but they have no affiliation to any credible news organization. I have been filmed a bunch of times, and recorded too, I don’t give a damn, I speak to people like they speak to me, be respectful and I am respectful, treat me like a an ass because you got a cop-chip on your shoulder and I treat you the same, with professionalism of course. I love debating with street lawyers who get their information from the internet (Crowley anyone?) most of them believe what they see on TV which leads to some real funny encounters. The more pleasant I become, the more pissed they get, my favorite is still the traffic stop…The driver argues, pleads and finally threatens, I will see you in court to which I respond I like overtime and I appreciate you thoughtfulness and concern for my salary. Then they get pissed and before they leave I say, I like court, you tell the judge what you THINK happened and I will tell him/her what REALLY happened and we will let the judge decide.. Have a good day sir/madam. They usually don’t catch what I said until they are a block or so away and sometimes you can see them waving their middle finger out the window and I always smile and wave back, with all my fingers…:)

This guy in the video is just looking for money and name recognition, it seems to be the thing to do, but on his behalf, the TSA agent was a complete and utter moron, they are nothing more than toothpaste tube squeezers with little or no authority, which still makes me wonder why they need 7000 AR-15′s? Perhaps big sis will let them shoot grandma instead of checking her depends…who the hell knows?

How sad is it that our country had degenerated into a place where something like this can be used to get attention and try to sue?

This narrative has to be changed. I own only “Personal Defense Weapons” (PDW) not an assault weapon. The DHS owns the real assault weapons for they will be assaulting all of us with their AR-15s when they come for our weapons. We will be forced to defend ourselves with our PDWs. They are the aggressors and we the victims.

Is it time to stand and take up arms to protect yourselves from the tyrannical assholes in DC? Has the time come to stop “turning the other cheek” but to stand ready to fight? Lord I hate saying it, but I think it is time. Lord help us cause we are going to need it.

It’s real simple, Military Troops are prohibited from use on American soil (except for the NG in emergencies) so if you want brown shirts, hire your own and arm them with military weapons….Most of them are dumb as dirt and I am sure would not hesitate to follow Chicago Jesus into combat against citizens who refuse to turn in their legally owned firearms…, ah let me rephrase that, run ahead of Chicago Jesus who will be hiding behind Moochelle….And after he packs the military with fools and idiots his brownshirts will be able to do anything they want when Chicago Jesus starts a crisis…just saying

Your position is correct. It also explains the ever widening scope of what the damn TSA is doing. Roaming road blocks and “safer checks” on the open highway. These fools have had little to no actual police training. Have zero credibility and are the most dangerous because they are on a power trip.

When I must fly, I carry my identification with me, which includes my badge along with department identification(rank). When it goes through the scanner along with my watch cell phone and change, inevitably I get a secondary screening. The last time through the Austin-Bergstron airport I had to have my hands swabbed. I knew right then and there what the lard ass was looking for. So I asked him, what if I had fired my service weapons during a training session in the last 24-36 hours? What would TSA do? He mumbled something about calling my department and speaking with my commanders. I just laughed abd asked him if he ever comes to Kentucky. His reply was once in a while, so I wished him well. Then “wrote” his name down in my phone. That way I can share with my brothers and sisters throughout this Commonwealth. That way he can receive the same professional courtesy and he can enjoy a pat frisk, and the 1000 question bull shit he ran me and my handicapped son through.

Nice one!
I am so tired of the BS at the TSA.
I have been wearing a hat I bought at the VA. It has an American Flag motif, and says “The price of freedom isn’t free”.
I show my VA ID instead of my drivers license, and get a little extra harassment as well. I am generally loudly vocal in my dissent, saying things along the line of “Do you harass all veterans like this?”, and “Is this how you treat a veteran?”. They get a bit embarrassed and back off when I do this, but I’m betting that my picture is in a TSA bulletin somewhere.

LOL I knew a guy in my business who borrowed a trailer from another guy in my business. When he brought the trailer back and asked what he owed, the owner told him to get his guys a couple of cases of beer. He never did. The owner was a retired SFPD officer. The guy that borrowed the trailer couldn’t drive his trucks around town, down the freeway or through a CHP scale without getting a whole load of crap and tickets for every little violation. He finally coughed up the beer. His problems then mysteriously ceased.

I actually hope I get the chance to stop a TSA worker for some traffic violation…There will be many questions, perhaps a consent search of the vehicle, warrant check and or course a ticket all with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. Even better would be the chance to go to a call for service at their home and possible arrest them. I would make sure the deputies in our county jail perform a “Complete” search of this suspicious person based on my two decades plus of training and experience.

May I also suggest an impounding of a suspicious vehicle. That way it can be thoroughly checked out for contraband of all types.

In Kalifornia you can only impound for no drivers license or suspended drivers license, or we can tow it if the driver is arrested….

You can’t impound for drugs or transporting illegals?

You can for evidence if there is drugs or guns or something in the car, trouble is most of the time the car is given back. unless it’s been used for a crime that would have DNA evidence..Remember this is Kalifornia where now at a DUI checkpoint with a drunken illegal alien driver, we are required by law to try and find a licensed driver before towing the car…that is thanks to a piece of shit assembly member from L.A. who thinks all illegals should have a driver’s license…that pisses me off, I have to waste my time trying to find a driver? Yea I got nothing better to do..

I has forgotten about all the BS that all of you must deal with there. Maybe the Assemblyman would volunteer his time to help with the driving duties. It would be leading by example. Yea I know he’s a politician and leading by example is a foreign term to all of them at any level.

So, if you’re a legal white person, do you get the same consideration, or is it off to jail for you?
Oh, wait. I bet it’s because they keep getting stuck for impound fees for a $50 throwaway POS that the illegals don’t care about getting back.

This applies ONLY at DUI checkpoints and yea white folks get he same consideration. However it was because the illegals with no driver’s license were complaining that this bill was passed. But if you know cops, you know we figure things out, Now at a check-point we just automatically arrest them for being an unlicensed driver, (even if they are not DUI) which is a misdemeanor in Kalifornia. We have the option of an arrest or citation, we now book them since it could continue (likelihood the crime WILL continue) if we give the car to their brother in law or some shit like that. You know the minute they get out of site, the original driver will be back in the driver’s seat and off to hit and run or worse. Therefore the car gets towed immediately and the unlicensed driver goes to jail, the car goes to car jail and I don’t have to spend 30 minutes looking for an illegal in a haystack that MIGHT have a license.

$50 impound fees? WOW! If a car gets towed in San Antonio, the charges to get it back run about $3-400. The city counncel recently passed a city ordinance that they couldn’t charge more than $85 and they have been bellyacheing ever since. THey are claiming they can’t do business for the lower amount, but the city has prosecuted several tow companies for violating the ordinance. Now they are folding, looking to see if they should raise the fee to $175.

Average cities in Kalifornia charge a 100 to 150 dollar release fee, plus the tow company’s charge about 150 for the tow and 30 dollars per day storage, a thirty day impound for driving with a suspended or revoked license is about 1200 bucks total..

OK, I want 7,000 AR-15′s and 5 billion rounds of ammo for personal defense too! Only problem is that you will play hell finding anything but black powder guns at a reasonable price now.
I did a little research and found that my Ruger Mark II pistol that I paid $100 for brand new, is now selling for nearly $500, and the Ruger Blackhawk .357 Mag that I paid $150 for brand new, is now selling for nearly $600 and those prices are for used guns!

Aint that the funniest thing? After weeks now of hearing that AR type firearms have no legitimate purpose in civilian hands because they have no hunting or defense capability, DHS let’s slip that they want them precisely because they ARE so good for personal defense!

BTW, if you go to the actual GAO req, they are NOT looking for AR-15s. They are specifying NATO round 5.56 weapons with selective fire capability — in other words, real machine guns, actual assault rifles.
