The Armed Citizen

The Armed Citizen® August 10, 2018

The Armed Citizen Extra
Shortly after midnight, a woman called police to report a man breaking into her home. The homeowner’s son, who was visiting, repeatedly and frantically ordered the stranger to leave, to no avail. The two engaged in a physical struggle as the son tried to prevent his entry, with the aggressor ignoring multiple warnings and continuing his advance. The homeowner grabbed a handgun and passed it to her son, who fired at and wounded the home invader, but the man was still not deterred. The struggle continued, and as the son shoved the intruder back outside, he fired a second shot, fatally wounding him. Police found the man deceased in the homeowner’s yard. At press time the shooting was still under investigation, but no charges had been filed against the mother and son. Ohio’s Castle Doctrine permits homeowners to use deadly force to protect themselves against an intruder. (Akron Beacon Journal, Akron, OH, 6/25/18)

August 1971
Two men, one armed with a machine gun, broke into a ski resort and tied up six employees in a daring holdup attempt at Soda Springs, Calif. Their plan failed, however, when they went next door to the home of Donald Schwartz, the manager. Schwartz got a shotgun and sent them fleeing with one blast. The two robbers were later jailed.

The Clinton State Department’s Major Security Breach That Everyone Is Ignoring

The Daily Signal, Hans von Spakovsky / /


Peter Strzok’s testimony about the email server scandal involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton raised headlines because of his defiant, disrespectful, and unapologetic attitude about the bias revealed in his text messages that permeated his work at the FBI.

Then, there was the verbal combat between him and Republican members of the two committees holding the joint hearing, and between the Republicans and Democratic members who were running interference for Strzok and acting as his defense counsel.

Keep Your Passwords Safe –, by June 25, 2018

Screenshot (5).png

Passwords are the keys to your entire digital life. They protect everything from your bank account and credit cards, to your personal and work emails, to your social profiles, and everything in between.

In other words, your passwords are highly valuable and should be treated as such. You need to protect them like you do your most valuable physical assets. Because just like criminals in the physical world try to steal money, jewelry, cars, and other valuables, cybercriminals try to steal your passwords and exploit your precious data.

Limbaugh: ‘You heard him, President Obama is responsible’, 07/19/2018 –clapper.jpg

Radio giant cites Clapper’s admission of culpability –

Now we know. It was President Obama who sparked the whole mess. The Russia collusion claims, the spying on the Trump campaign, the special counsel, the focus on the Trump campaign’s connection to Russia rather than Hillary Clinton’s.

That’s according to talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh, who Thursday cited former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper claim that Obama ordered the crucial intelligence assessment.

School Districts Ask Voters For Higher Property Taxes?

School Taxes.jpg

School districts across Texas are in the process of setting budgets for the next school year. Many districts are also looking to raise property taxes to pay for budgeted spending increases — but they need voter approval.

Several school boards in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex are asking for increases in their districts’ maintenance and operations (M&O) tax rate for 2018. Any proposed M&O tax rate above $1.04 per $100 of assessed property value triggers a Tax Ratification Election (TRE).

Lifting minimum wage would harm lowest-skill labor in Texas

TPPF, Ginn, Raia: 07/19/2018 –


This commentary was originally featured in The Houston Chronicle on July 23, 2017

This year appeared to be a dream come true for the group “Fight for $15,” as the 85th Texas Legislature heard nine bills that would have raised the state’s legal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. The increases ranged from to $10.10 per hour by the year 2022 to $15 per hour this year.

To Promote Gun Control, the UN Changes the Rules

The Daily Signal, Ted Bromund / /


In the last two weeks of June, the United Nations held another review conference on its efforts to counter what it considers illicit dealing in small arms. The U.S. played the game well. But unfortunately, you can’t beat a cheater.

In theory, this U.N. program might be a modestly useful way to promote cooperation against the illicit international trade in small arms.

In practice, as even the world body has agreed, it does nothing very useful, mostly because most nations at the U.N. are too incompetent, or too ill-willed, to follow through on their commitments.

Marc Morano, founding editor of the award-winning website, recently authored “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change.” He spoke to Daily Signal Editor-in-Chief Rob Bluey about climate change myths and other facts you probably haven’t heard reported by the media. An edited transcript of their interview is below. You can also listen to it on The Daily Signal podcast.

Rob Bluey: What prompted your interest in the issue of climate change? There’s a great photo of you in the book next to a wanted poster. How did you become such a villain to the left?

Marc Morano: I always said I was a Republican, except when it came to environmental issues. I remember not liking James Watt, the former interior secretary. I remember not liking President Ronald Reagan’s environmental policies. I always wanted to be a forest ranger as a kid growing up. I got heavily involved emotionally in watching all the documentaries about the Amazon rainforest back in the 1980s and 1990s.

… initial read on Governor Abbott’s May 30, 2018 School and Firearm Safety Action Plan:

we the people.jpg

Fellow Patriots,

We’ve spoken with several conservative legislators the last couple of days.  We are incensed that NONE of the independent gun rights groups were invited to the Abbott table and that our conservative legislators were shut out of the conversation too. When gun control advocates leave the Governor’s meeting high-fiving each other, you know there’s a reason for concern.
