A Vallejo PD office shot and killed a pit bull that was intentionally let loose in order to interfere with police action on Thursday. The incident happened about 1045 AM when two cops were searching a homeless encampment on fenced-off state property.  The officers attempted to arrest Matthew Vallejos for trespassing when the dog attacked.  It turned out the dog had been tied but Vallejos had cut his leash as

A 12-year old boy was gut-shot by a Cleveland PD officer at a city recreation center yesterday.  The cops responded to what I am guessing was a call because somebody spotted the gun in the waistband of the kids pants.  When the cops approached the kid pulled the gun, which turned out to be a toy with the orange plastic tip removed.  One of the cops fired, hitting the kid.

Brandon Duncan, AKA Tiny Doo, is a rapper with some commercial presence and a documented gang member.  He is one of 15 defendants facing trial for a string of shootings in San Diego.  Prosecutors admit he had zero involvement in the actual crimes, but content that his music both instigated the crimes and that he profited from them by the sale of his recordings. Duncan remains in jail facing a

Gun of the Week

Nov 22nd, 2014 | By
Share

The Gun of the Week this time is another one of my recent personal acquisitions, a S&W Model 25-2 45 acp revolver.  This particular weapon appears to be non-stock.  The barrel is only 2 3/4 ” long and has no markings at all on it, leading me to believe it was either cut down from a much longer tube or may be a non-factory barrel in the first place.  The front sight is mounted squarely and professionally on the barrel, which is grooved on the top as is the sight ramp.  The front cylinder latch

David Rice, 21, beat feet from the jail in Muscatine, Iowa recently.  He must be a city boy or a serious wimp.  He made his way to the Loud Thunder Forest Preserve near Rick Island, Illinois, where he intended to hide out but ended up calling 911 to be rescued because a group of coyotes were following and he didn’t want to be transformed into a warm meal for them.

The bankrupt burg of San Bernardino has decided that it WILL pay CalPERS the $13.5 million it owes in order to keep city pensions intact.  Besides being a reasonable thing to do it will also make it possible to recruit and retain decent employees, a situation that would not be possible if their connection to CalPERS goes down the drain. The city began installment payments of the debt in July.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals made a ruling last Friday that was both reasonable and significant.  The court held that fleeing the cops in a motor vehicle is, by definition, a violent crime which can bring appropriate enhancements to the sentence of the miscreant involved. Under consideration was the case of a career felon who was, at the time, in possession of ammunition.  He also had a prior for

The Gun of the Week this time around is a new entry from Browning, the 1911 , 380 Black Label pistol.  This is an interesting pistol.  It is 85% of the size of a full-size government model pistol, very much like the .22 pistol they came out with a couple of years back.  The grip panels of the two pistols in fact are interchangeable. The Black Label division of Browning designs products with feedback from the Special Ops and law enforcement communities along with civilian specialists.  (Which, I suspect, is something of a marketing ploy

Big win for the Second Amendment

The Ninth Circuit, the most liberal of the federal court circuits, turned down an en banc request in the Peruta case.  This is the case that struck down the “good cause” clause in the CCW statute in California, effectively turning California into a “shall issue” instead of a “may issue” state. I have no doubt that many jurisdictions, like LA and SF, will still slow-drag the process and may require
