Even liberals say SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh is a great choice.
Meanwhile, not only is the left committing obstruction of justice by protesting in the hearings (which the right has never done, as far as I can remember), we also have a report that those are paid protesters. Our report indicates that multiple sources witnessed protesters getting paid $50, plus “breakfast, lunch and bail money.” Claiming credit were groups called “Demand Justice” and the “Women’s March.”

Gun-rights group Florida Carry is again suing Florida State University in circuit court claiming that although the school amended its student handbook allowing legal concealed weapons in vehicles, it still unlawfully prohibits rifles and shotguns and unlawfully attempts to regulate ammunition. Florida Carry is seeking a court order to overturn the code of conduct language, level a statutory fine and other relief.
Rural CA couple calls 911. Police call their neighbors and asked them to go check on them, because the nearest deputy was 3 hours away. Guess what happened next….
Meanwhile across the pond, armed criminals pulled up alongside a police van on a moped and aimed a gun at the unarmed officers in an attempt to free a suspected burglar detained in the back in Croydon, South London. The officers were able to escape with their prisoner by driving away. Police are still searching for the suspects, but I suspect not very hard.

Remember last week we reported that a bunch of Democrat US Reps sent a letter to Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos opposing plans to use federal funding to arm public school teachers for self-defense? DeVos has responded, saying that “Congress did not authorize me or the Department to make those decisions” about arming teachers or training them on the use of firearms, and “I will not take any action that would expand or restrict the responsibilities and flexibilities granted to state and local education agencies by Congress.”

Levi Strauss & Co., long a gun-control proponent, announced this week that it is launching a new gun control campaign, which includes the Safer Tomorrow Fund, which will direct more than $1 million in philanthropic grants to boosting gun-control groups; partnering with Everytown for Gun Safety and Michael Bloomberg to form Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety (sic); and a doubling of the company’s usual employee donation match to organizations aligned with the new Safer Tomorrow gun ban fund. The company will also pay employees for their gun ban political activism, for up to five hours a month. I haven’t purchase or worn Levis for 40 years.
Uber and Lyft suspended a driver from driving for their respective anti-gun businesses after he allegedly used a gun in self-defense, thereby violating the companies’ policies, in Polk County, Florida, recently. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd described the incident as “justifiable homicide all day long.” In other news, the driver is still alive, and we don’t have to use Uber or Lyft.
The World Wildlife Fund strikes again. Eleven black rhinos dead.
Meanwhile in Botswana, home to about 1/3 of the planet’s elephant population, President Carter Morupisi disarmed the anti-poaching units patrolling the country’s border regions. The result? At least 87 poached elephants.
You’ve heard about Thursday’s shooting in Cincinnati’s Fifth Third Bank in which two people were injured and three were killed when a gunman opened fire at the building on Walnut Street. Gun free zone. Ended when good guys with guns showed up and killed the perpetrator. The bank also was reportedly connected to a gun “buyup” program.
