TX Gun Store Famous For It’s Snarky Pro-2nd Amendment Signs Is Facing Bank Shutdown

June 21, 2014 at 12:42 pm

All hands on deck.

Tactical Firearms needs your help.

tact

Tactical Firearms latest sign is neither funny nor clever as per usual, it instead relays an ominous message.

Via Guns Save Lives:

Tactical Firearms has prided itself in being honest with our customers from our first day in business. That’s why we are alerting you today to a situation that we believe to be unjust and punitive against Tactical Firearms, and this is a situation that threatens to put us out of business on July 1, 2014.

Tactical Firearms has just been given notice that our loan with Icon bank has been called in. Not because of no payment, as we have never been late or missed a payment, but because the board of directors has chosen to not renew the loan. Deciding to call a loan which has a perfect payment record and is profitable to the bank is almost unheard of in the banking industry. This is why we believe Tactical Firearms is being specifically targeted with punitive actions in an effort to put us out of business.

But there’s even more to this situation that you need to know:

Back in 2012 Tactical Firearms purchased the land next to our existing facility. Icon Bank suggested an interim loan at 7% interest and then to refinance all of our loans together into one loan at a lower rate of 3.579%. At that time we had a fixed, long term loan for the building and the construction of the range. By purchasing the land, it cross collateralized the loans and put us in a situation (unknown to us at the time) that could threaten our entire business.

When it became time to refinance the loans, one of our owners (30%), Steven Coe Wilson, decided to back out. It is our belief based on what we have since learned that Steven wished to seize control of the company. We have substantial reason to believe he recruited some of our longest and hardest working employees to overbuy, to overspend, and to bury Tactical Firearms in debt to the point that we could not pay our bills. His grand plan appears to have been to swoop in and buy up the loan when the bank foreclosed on us for failure to pay. Perhaps to his disappointment, not only have we successfully paid our loan notes, we have also cut the unpaid bills by over half.

Sadly, because Steven did not sign the loan refinance that he had previously agreed to, the short term loan for the land has now matured. By default, our primary business loan is now in jeopardy.

ANTI-TRUST PRACTICES?

Further complicating this situation, it has also been brought to our attention that a member of the board of directors of Icon Bank, Mark Evans, is the owner of a new gun store in the Houston area. Based on what we’ve learned about this competitor, we are convinced that this bank has the intensions of forcing Tactical Firearms out of business to remove a major competitor from the market of Mr. Mark Evans’ new business, Guns Over Texas. If true, we believe this would constitute unfair trade practices in the State of Texas, and we intend to pursue this matter with the office of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Further connections support our accusations of anti-trade practices. For example, Mark Evans is the Managing Partner for Commercial Finance with the firm O’Connor, Craig, Gould & Evans – the firm that is being used by Icon Bank to proceed with the foreclosure. We strongly protest what appears to be a clear conflict of interest on the part of Mark Evans, who appears to be using his influence at the law firm (and therefore the bank) to engage in destructive, punitive actions with the ultimate aim of destroying his competition and thus ensuring the profitability of his own gun store.

Such behavior is monopolistic, anti-free-trade and un-American. Please contact the Attorney General and urge him to look into this matter.

Email: Attorney General Greg Abbott
greg.abbott@texasattorneygeneral.gov

At the same time, the bank’s excuse to us for calling in the loan is because the “government does not support loans to the gun, alcohol, or hotel industries” and the banks get heavily audited. This is an extension of the Obama administration’s backdoor efforts to bankrupt the firearms industry and all its supporting retailers and firing ranges. Since the government can’t take away our Second Amendment directly, they make it difficult for businesses to stay open by pressuring banks to close loans. This has already happened to other gun shops around the country. We are fighting to make sure it doesn’t happen to us.

All these factors seem to now be coalescing into a deliberate, well-planned attack on Tactical Firearms with the aim of permanently putting us out of business. The idea of our doors closing is incredibly painful to even imagine. We have over 30 employees, many of whom have children, who depend on our successful business operations to keep their own homes. In addition to our economic contributions to Katy and the greater Houston area, we also donate our time and profits to charities like Oilfield Helping Hands and Texas Sentinels.

Even more, there are 175 NFA items in our possession awaiting approval from the ATF. If we are unable to stay in business, every single one of these items would have to be resubmitted and the year long process would begin again.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO FIGHT THIS TYRANNY

Today, I am reaching out to YOU, our valued customers and supports, to ask for your help in keeping us out of the clutches of these punitive, monopolistic actions that now threaten Tactical Firearms.

FIRST, we need you to CONTACT THE BANK and urge them to reconsider their intended loan recall, pointing out that all banks need goodwill in the community in order to stay in business themselves:

John Green, President and Vice Chairman of the Board Icon Bank,
jgreen@iconbanktx.com
281-517-2430

www.iconbanktx.com

SECOND, we ask that you contact Mark Evans, who resides on the Board of Directors of Icon Bank, and let him know that the community is now heavily scrutinizing his actions and that we believe he is engaged in anti-trust violations of state and federal law. We will not hesitate to take this issue to the press if Evans pursues what we believe to be a punitive, anti-trade assault on our business rights:

Mark Evans, Board of Directors Icon Bank and Managing Partner of O’Connor, Craig, Gould & Evans,
mark.evans@bgllp.com, 713-221-1300

THIRD, we ask that you help put out the word that all this could be readily solved if another INVESTOR or LENDER could be identified who would step up to the plate and support this successful business. We are a high-integrity, profitable business with a strong credit history and a perfect record of loan payment. Any lender would be thrilled to do business with a company like Tactical Firearms, and if a lender or investor wishes to help support our operations, it would also be a PROFITABLE venture for them to do so.

If you know of such a lender or investor who is interested in a profitable partnership with Tactical Firearms, please have them contact us at:
Email: helpus@tacticalfirearms.us

Finally, all of us here at Tactical Firearms thank you for your ongoing support, and please know that we are deeply dedicated to finding solutions that will defend us against this punitive and potentially unlawful attempts to destroy our business.

We believe in America. We believe in the Second Amendment. And we also believe that businesses operating in Texas should not be subjected to Gestapo-style tactics from the banking industry and its insiders. What we are fighting for here is the integrity of the entire business infrastructure which obviously depends on lenders to act on good faith when supporting expanding businesses.

What this system is trying to do to Tactical Firearms right now is a travesty of justice, and it’s just one more sign of the kind of punitive insanity we are seeing played out across this great nation by a network of anti-American individuals who are attempting to destroy the fabric of this nation one day at a time.

We refuse to let that happen, and we will fight this with every ounce of effort and breath within our reach. We thank you for any assistance and help you can offer us in this very trying time.

Share this with everyone you know and please keep all of us in your prayers.

Sincerely,
The Tactical Firearms Family

Backdoor Oppression: Wife Of Obama Media Director Launched Petition To Fire George Will From WaPo

June 12, 2014 at 1:22 pm

FemNazi Nita Chaudhary’s claim that while at MoveOn.org she “worked to protect constitutional liberties” is ludicrous. Progressives and constitutional liberties are like oil and water.
Nita Chaudhary wife of obama media director jesee lee launched fire george will petition

The Regime’s bag of oppressive tyrannical tricks overfloweth.
The Weekly Standard:

Last week, George Will wrote a column about how progressive politics have fomented “rape culture” on college campuses. The column was not well received by some, or even, as a great many of the histrionic responses would indicate, well understood. I received the following press release yesterday, headlined: “87,000 Call on The Washington Post to Address Sexism, Fire George Will.” A group called UltraViolet was touting the success of an online petition they’d whipped up over the controversy. From the release:

“The past week has seen the Washington Post devolve to violent and shameful rhetoric that normalizes rape and violence against women. In the face of a national epidemic of sexual violence, The Washington Post should take a stand against rape– starting by firing George Will, said Nita Chaudhary, co-founder of UltraViolet. “From mocking survivors to misleading the public on demands for college sexual assault reform and blaming women for violence against them– the Post has left the realm of honest debate and entered the realm of hate-speech and dog whistles.”

……

Chaudhary is also the wife of Jesse Lee, the White House’s director of progressive media and online response. In fact, Valerie Jarrett helped Lee propose to Chaudhary at a State Dinner. In past administrations, positions such as the one held by Lee charged with partisan media strategies and rapid response were outsourced to the party organizations, so as not to politicize the presidency. Alas, this White House lacks that kind of respect for the office.
……
I think we can safely conclude that Chaudhary and Lee don’t believe in the meaningful kind of free speech. Certainly, the demand to fire George Will and otherwise pressure the Washington Post is punitive and calculated to enforce conformity of thought on a difficult and contentious topic, not promote understanding. And when the common response to disagreeable opinions becomes political organizers unleashing social media lynch mobs, it opens a backdoor to total oppression.

Whether you agree with George Will or not, something all American’s who believe in “constitutional liberties” should agree on is that any Administration with ties to anti-free speech campaigns as UltraViolet’s Fire George Will campaign opens itself to accusations of oppression.

Not that I think they care. I’m just saying.

There is the possibility that George Will got under Barack’s thin skin on another matter and ‘they’ have been lying in wait. Will’s article which addressed such an emotionally charged issue as rape gave UltraViolet the perfect opportunity to launch an assault against him (progressives are all about emotional blackmail). It did not hurt their anti-free speech mission that Will skewered the Obama Administration in his article. Making the Obama Admin./Jesee Lee/ UltraViolet Nita Chaudhary ties all the more suspicious.

Read it all.

8 Year Old’s Imagination Penalized For Drawing A Gun He Saw In The Clouds

May 23, 2014 at 8:02 am

8 year old Kody Smith was only doing what he was told and now his imagination has been labeled as ‘disruptive behavior’ by zero tolerance thought control zealots who wet their pants over any depiction of a gun no matter how innocent it may be.

KKTV:

Cloud gun. (Not the cloud Kody saw)

One does not have to stretch their imagination to far to see a gun in this cloud formation. Note: Not the cloud Kody saw.

Second grader Kody Smith was assigned to go outside, look at the clouds, and then use his imagination to draw what he saw.”Draw a picture of what you see in the clouds from your imagination and that picture is a gun,” explained 8-year-old Kody.

Because it was a gun, the teacher at Talbott Elementary in Widefield called him into the office, and then filed a behavior report. His parents say that’s too much.
……
The report says Kody showed behavior that is disruptive to the entire learning community. The parents were worried that this would be on his permanent school record. The Widefield School District says it will not be.

D-3 also sent us this statement: “Our primary responsibility as a school district is to ensure safety of all staff, students and community. We exercised an age-appropriate reaction to an incident. The student’s education was never disrupted nor is this incident on the student’s permanent record. Our response was in line with routine procedures focused on school safety.”

I couldn’t have said this better myself:

(Sane Shackleford) This is the whole point. They are traumatizing children into being terrified of even thinking about a gun. This isn’t an isolated incident. This is standard all over the country. You’re civil rights will all be gone within 20 years.
Eric Holder said he was going to brainwash every single person against their 2nd amendment rights, and this is just proof.
So, teach your kids to shoot. Teach your neighbors, Teach their kids…
It’s up to us to un-fuck America.

Texas DOT Orders Ten Commandments Sign On Private Property Be Removed

May 17, 2014 at 11:23 am

ten commandments sign texas

Sabine Co. Ten Commandments sign generating buzz in Texas, Louisiana

A pedestal perching muslim would have been left alone.

First-Amendment-Religious-Freedom-610x400(Christian News Network) –HEMPHILL, Texas – The Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) is ordering that a Ten Commandments sign posted on private property near a state highway be removed.

Jeannette Golden of Hemphill, Texas purchased the 6 x 12-foot sign from the organization God’s Ten last summer and posted it on her property just off Highway 21. However, according to reports, Golden was soon contacted by the state, which took issue with the sign, stating that the display could be classified as commercial advertising.

Golden then painted over the website on the display, but officials advised that the sign was still considered to be “outdoor advertising” and would therefore require a permit. The permit would cost $125, with an annual fee of $75 and a $250 surety bond. Fines for failure to obtain a permit are as high as $1,000 per day.

However, TXDOT now states that “no permit is possible” and that the sign must be removed as pursuant to the Highway Beautification Act, which relates to advertising. Golden is insistent that her sign is not an advertisement.

“I wasn’t advertising because that’s my freedom of religion, and that’s what I believe, and I was not informing anybody,” she told reporters. “It was just something that I stood for.”

Local residents have rallied around Golden by purchasing a billboard not too far from her property that reads “In God We Trust.” Others have verbally expressed support for the right to display the sign.

“[N]ot only has my phone been ringing off the hook, but people would see me in the community and say, ‘Don’t let that sign go down,’” she told local television station KTRE.

In the meantime, Golden has enlisted the help of the Plano-based Christian legal organization The Liberty Institute. [...]

18 Year Old Eagle Scout Suspended For “Unsafe” Gun T-Shirt Fights Suspension & Wins!

May 15, 2014 at 8:16 am

chris borg gun tshirt hinsdale central illinois
T-shirts don’t kill people, people kill people.
ICYMI the backstory:

(Chicago Tribune) –A Hinsdale Central High School student is challenging a suspension he said he received for wearing to school a T-shirt that depicts an AK-47.

Senior Chris Borg, 18, of Hinsdale, appeared before the Hinsdale Township High School District 86 school board Monday to make the request that the suspension he received on May 6 be removed from his record.

Borg told the board that he wore a T-shirt with the outline of an AK-47 depicted on the back, a url for the website of a Kentucky armory club that supports gun rights and the words “TeamAK” on it. He said the shirt did not identify the gun as an AK-47 in writing.

Borg said he was stopped for wearing it by hall monitors. He said the dean of students, Kimberly Dever, offered him the chance to turn the shirt inside out, wear another shirt or be suspended for the day.

“I decided to go home for the day because I felt it was a infringement of my First Amendment right to freedom of expression,” Borg told the board.

Supt. Bruce Law said the T-shirt is a violation of the dress code outlined in the school’s handbook.

The handbook states that students are subject to disciplinary action when they wear clothing that “is deemed vulgar, inappropriate, unsafe or disruptive to the educational process (e.g., advertising/display of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, sexual innuendo).

Borg said he was told the T-shirt was unsafe and disruptive. [...]

VICTORY:

(Chicago Tribune) –The district will remove the suspension from the record of Chris Borg, 18, a senior who wore a T-shirt depicting an AK-47 to Hinsdale Central High School on May 6, the student said. The shirt also had the words “AKteam” printed on it and the URL for a Kentucky gun club that supports gun rights.
……
“I’m ecstatic,” Borg said of the decision. “I’m happy. I wasn’t trying to push buttons or be provocative. I was just trying to assert my First Amendment rights.”

Supt. Bruce Law said Wednesday the district has “changed its mind about the rectitude” of the suspension that was issued because it was determined that the image of the gun was unsafe and disruptive to the educational process and was not in keeping with the school’s dress code.
……
In the future, Law said the district will try to distinguish between gun-related images that are lawful and do not promote violence and ones that promote violence or illegal activity.

Other images of guns that would be acceptable on clothing would be for branches of the armed services, Law said.

“A lawful activity like a gun club or a military institution is different than an unlawful activity that promotes violence,” Law said. [...]

Wow, logic, common sense and reason –color me shocked.

Submission Accomplished! Ayaan Hirsi Ali Responds To @BrandeisU’s Decision To Rescind Planned Honorary Degree

April 10, 2014 at 8:47 am

 


Evidently Brandeis University is now a sharia zone. Free speech be damned! If a woman who “was personally subjected to genital mutilation, had to flee a forced marriage and is still enduring death threats.[for daring to speak the truth]” does not have the right to expose those very topics then who does? No one as far as CAIR (Council Of Islamic Relations) is concerned. Truth and the freedom of speech are the mortal enemies of CAIR and the insidious cult of islam, which is why islamofascist CAIR fights against them tooth and nail.

(Fox News Insider) –Brandeis University has abruptly yanked an honor for an advocate of women’s rights in the Muslim community.

submission

‘Submission’ a short film by Dutch movie maker Theo van Gogh in association with Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The film deals with the oppression of women in many Muslim countries. Van Gogh was murdered by a Muslim in 2004 for making this film.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali-born woman and U.S. citizen, is known for her efforts to advance women’s rights in communities in Islam. She was personally subjected to genital mutilation, had to flee a forced marriage and is still enduring death threats. She has most recently gained attention for her role in “Honor Diaries.”

Brandeis has withdrawn an honorary degree and an invitation to speak at commencement due to Ali’s detractors, who call her an Islamophobe. The Council on American-Islam Relations is one of the groups that has been vocal against Ali. The group has also pushed against “Honor Diaries.”

Ibrahim Hooper, of the unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-finance trial ] Council on American-Islam Relations, told Megyn Kelly that Ali says Islam itself must be defeated and Muslim schools in America should be shut down. He also said the message of “Honor Diaries” is “hate Muslims, hate Islam.”

“Frankly, I don’t think that Mr. Hooper speaks for Muslims, I don’t think that he speaks for Muslim women,” Ali said tonight on “The Kelly File.” [...]

Read Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s statement here.

Brandeis’ hypocritical double standards:

Brandeis Student Slams ‘Hypocrisy’ After Islam Critic Shunned

Decision to withdraw award to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali ‘hypocritical’ in light of previous awards to hatemongers.
……
“The decision is a blatant contradiction of past-president Jehuda Reinhartz’s defense of the same award being given to Tony Kushner. When the anti-Israel Kushner was given an honorary degree, Reinhartz said, ‘Mr. Kushner is not being honored because he is a Jew, and he is not being honored for his political opinions. Brandeis is honoring him for his extraordinary achievements as one of this generation’s foremost playwrights, whose work is recognized in the arts and also addresses Brandeis’s commitment to social justice.’”

Similarly, Mael points out, “Hirsi Ali was not being honored for her views on Islam. She was being honored for her commitment to women’s rights and real justice.”

What’s more, Mael points out, Brandeis University has hosted several controversial anti-Israel speakers, including Sam Bahour, an activist who opposes any peace negotiations between the Palestinian Authority and Israel and who believes that Israel does not have the right to exist.

In a 2011 column in the Guardian Bahour wrote, “Israel [is] a settler, colonial, apartheid movement clinging to a racialist, exclusivist ideology. [The Palestinians] were correct to [reject Israel] at the outset of this conflict [1948].”

The decision to rescind Ali’s honor was withdrawn following pressure from several groups, including most prominently the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which sent a letter to the university’s president, Dr. Frederik M. Lawrence, referring to her as a “notorious Islamophobe.”

“She is one of the worst of the worst of the Islam haters in America, not only in America but worldwide,” Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the group, said in an interview on Tuesday. “I don’t assign any ill will to Brandeis. I think they just kind of got fooled a little bit.”

But CAIR itself has been accused of having links to extremist Islamist groups including the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, and the group was directly linked by authorities to an infamous Hamas funding racket known as the Holy Land Foundation.

Mael said that the group played a crucial role in drumming up support for the petition to ban Ali, and that in fact “most of the signatories are from outside the university.”

“This is the same group that has been blocking screening of The Honor Diaries,” he pointed out, referring to CAIR’s controversial campaign to silence a film exposing domestic abuse within the Muslim community. [...]

Brandeis is taking marching orders from CAIR a subversive enemy within:

CAIR holds itself out as America’s foremost Islamic civil rights organization. Under Sharia, however, the Western concept of civil rights does not exist. The analogy to Communist front organizations of an earlier era is striking. While pretending to advocate for freedom and to oppose discrimination, CAIR’s real purpose is to subvert the very society whose liberalism it cynically seeks to exploit.

Mozilla; masters of Orwellian doublespeak:

Mozilla’s statement on Brendan Eich’s ouster:

Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.

We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.

Brendan Eich has chosen to step down from his role as CEO. He’s made this decision for Mozilla and our community.

Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.

Our organizational culture reflects diversity and inclusiveness. We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views. Mozilla supports equality for all.

We have employees with a wide diversity of views. Our culture of openness extends to encouraging staff and community to share their beliefs and opinions in public. This is meant to distinguish Mozilla from most organizations and hold us to a higher standard. But this time we failed to listen, to engage, and to be guided by our community.

While painful, the events of the last week show exactly why we need the web. So all of us can engage freely in the tough conversations we need to make the world better.

We need to put our focus back on protecting that Web. And doing so in a way that will make you proud to support Mozilla.

What’s next for Mozilla’s leadership is still being discussed. We want to be open about where we are in deciding the future of the organization and will have more information next week. However, our mission will always be to make the Web more open so that humanity is stronger, more inclusive and more just: that’s what it means to protect the open Web.

We will emerge from this with a renewed understanding and humility — our large, global, and diverse community is what makes Mozilla special, and what will help us fulfill our mission. We are stronger with you involved.

Thank you for sticking with us.

UPDATE: Left leaning Mother Jones reports on OKCupid’s hypocrisy.

Of course, it’s been a decade since Yagan’s donation to Cannon, and a decade or more since many of Cannon’s votes on gay rights. It’s possible that Cannon’s opinions have shifted, or maybe his votes were more politics than ideology; a tactic by the Mormon Rep. to satisfy his Utah constituency. It’s also quite possible that Yagan’s politics have changed since 2004: He donated to Barack Obama’s campaign in 2007 and 2008. Perhaps even Firefox’s Eich has rethought LGBT equality since his 2008 donation. But OkCupid didn’t include any such nuance in its take-down of Firefox. Combine that with the fact that the company helped force out one tech CEO for something its own CEO also did, and its action last week starts to look more like a PR stunt than an impassioned act of protest. (Mother Jones reached out to OkCupid for comment: We’ll update this post if we receive a response.)
