SECURITY VIDEO: Armed Iraq Vet Stops Wannabe Liquor Store Thief In His Tracks!

December 9, 2013 at 9:06 pm

Score one for ‘good guys with a gun’.

MARIONVILLE, MO (SPRINGFIELD NEWS LEADER) — [...] A veteran of four tours in Iraq. A 30-year military man. A former prison guard, private investigator, professional extraditor of federal prisoners and – perhaps most important on this particular Sunday night – a proud owner of a Walther PPX 9 mm handgun.

Loaded, with one in the chamber, like he always carries it.

Jon Lewis Alexander, 54, of Marionville, thwarted a robbery about 9 p.m. Sunday [Sept. 1, 2013] at Beer 30 on East Logan Street in Marionville – after the would-be robber pulled his weapon first.

As a store security video shows, Alexander used his left hand to push the robber’s handgun back while – in a smooth but rapid motion – pulling and swinging his 9 mm into the robber’s face. The man’s mouth, to be exact, as the robber haplessly holds his own weapon at his side.

……
The man came in the store smoking a cigarette, and Alexander said he quickly explained that was against the rules. Within seconds, the man in a gray T-shirt was at the counter, demanding “all the (expletive deleted) money.”

In less than three seconds, as Alexander threw out a couple of expletives of his own and threatened to “blow his (expletive deleted) head off,” the man is seen in the video backing away, his own firearm still at his side.

Texas: Mistrial Declared For Active Duty Army Sgt. At Center Of Gun Rights Debate

Followup to: Active Duty Soldier Illegally Disarmed & Arrested In Texas [Video Of Arrest] Trial Over, Jury Deliberating [Updated]
Post-trial interview with Army Master Sgt. Christopher Grisham:

A small victory, but a victory just the same.

(KWTX) –BELTON (October 18, 2013)—A mistrial was declared after jurors deadlocked Friday following two full days of deliberation in the trial of Army Master Sgt. Christopher “C.J.” Grisham of Temple, whose case has drawn the attention of gun-rights advocates nationwide.

Grisham expressed frustration Friday of having to go through the ordeal of a trial because of the “actions of an abusive police officer.”

He called the mistrial the closest thing to a not-guilty verdict.

Prosecutors didn’t immediately say whether they would retry him.

The six-member jury started deliberating the misdemeanor case Thursday morning after both sides rested Wednesday afternoon.

Grisham was arrested in March 2013 after police received a report about a man who was carrying an assault-style rifle while walking along Airport Road in West Temple.

Grisham told the responding officers he was just walking with his son to help him get a Boy Scout Badge, but police confiscated the rifle and arrested him after the encounter his son recorded on camera.

The video shot by Grisham’s son quickly went viral and the arrest triggered a series of demonstrations.

Grisham was charged with misdemeanor interference with the duties of an officer.

“I don’t think it’s fair that I’m even being charged with this crime,” Grisham said before the start of the trial Tuesday.

“The fact that I’m here in court for one I don’t think that’s very fair to begin with because my son and I weren’t doing anything wrong.”

“I think after the facts speak for themselves I’ll be set free,” he said.

“You can’t let the police make up the rules as they go,” said Keith Lee, a member of Open Carry Texas who showed up to support Grisham.

“Somebody has to stand up and say enough is enough.”

Let the civil suit begin.

Come and Take it March: Gun rally held in Temple – Hundreds of gun owners participate in the Come and Take it Temple march and rally Saturday (June 1,2013). The rally included a march around downtown Temple and guest speakers. The rally was held partly in response to the Temple Police Department arresting Christopher J. Grisham on March 16 as he was carrying a rifle.

When arresting officer Steve Ermis of the Temple Police Department approached Army Master Sgt Chris Grisham he asked why he was carrying a loaded gun, to which Grisham replied “Because I can”.

(BenSwannArchive ) –On March 16, 2013, my son and I were hiking along country roads among pastures and fields with my 15-year old son to help him earn his hiking merit badge. I always enjoy these father/son hikes because it gives me time alone with my son. As I always do when we go on these hikes and walks, I took my trusty rifle with me as there are coyotes, wild hogs, and cougars in our area. In Texas, it is legal to openly carry a rifle or shotgun as long as you do so in a manner that isn’t calculated to cause alarm. In other words, you can’t walk around waving your rifle at people. I always carry my rifle slung across my chest dangling, not holding it in my hands.

At about the 5 mile mark of our hike, a voice behind us asked us to stop and the officer motioned for us to approach him. He got out of his car and met us a few feet later. He asked us what we were doing and I explained that we were hiking for my son’s merit badge. He then asked me what I’m doing with the rifle, to which I responded in a calm manner, “Does it matter, officer? Am I breaking the law?”

At that point, the officer grabbed my rifle without warning or indication. He didn’t ask for my rifle and he didn’t suggest he would take it from me. He simply grabbed it. This startled me and I instantly pulled back – the rifle was attached to me – and I asked what he thought he was doing because he’s not taking my rifle. He then pulled his service pistol on me and told me to take my hands off the weapon and move to his car, which I complied with. He then slammed me into the hood of his car and I remembered I had a camera on me (one of the requirements of the hiking merit badge is to document your hikes). This video is the rest of that encounter. Up to this point, I am not told why I am being stopped, why he tried to disarm me, or even that I’m under arrest.

We did not set out that Saturday morning to “make a point” or cause problems. Our goal was to complete a 10-mile hike and return home without incident. My son chose a route that away from populated areas but near our home.

The arresting officer is Officer Steve Ermis and the supervisor is Sergeant Minnicks of the Temple Police Department.

“In an interesting twist, Deborah McKeon of the Telegram reported on Grisham’s story last month, shortly after he was arrested and wanted his guns back, said, “Grisham was arrested March 16, five days after Grisham urged the Temple City Council to declare that citizen rights to keep and bear arms will not be infringed upon.”

Coincidence? I think not.

Annnnnnd…..surprise, surprise…. County Prosecutor Ken Kalafut is a gun grabbing fascist Obama fan boy:

Bell County prosecutor Ken Kalafut, described by multiple sources as one of the few recognizable liberals in the heavily Republican area, took on the case.

“The prosecutor in that case [Kalafut] has a picture of President Obama behind him in his office, and he sits there and tells me, ‘I will make sure that gun does not fall into anyone else’s hands. I will have that gun destroyed,’” [Grisham’s attorney, Kurt] Glass said.

Kalafut declined to be interviewed for this story [SHOCKER!]. Private investigator Garcia told TheDC that Kalafut is “probably the bandleader” of gun-control efforts in the community.

The charges:

“My attorney received the incident reports and official charges from the DA today. The “resisting arrest” (class A misdemeanor) charge has disappeared and been replaced with “interference with public duties” (class B misdemeanor) charge. Neither charge is cause for taking my firearms and they still have not been returned. Now that we have official charges and incident reports, more information will be released this week. I am completely innocent of this and all charges and time will show that I did nothing wrong besides stand up for my rights as an American.”

Christopher’s case has since went to trial which is now over, as both sides rested Wednesday (Oct. 16, 2013) and the jury have begun their deliberations.

Update Oct. 18, 2013:
Temple: No Verdict Yet For Soldier At Center Of Gun Rights Debate

TEMPLE (October 17, 2013)–Jurors deliberated for almost eight hours Thursday without reaching a verdict in the trial of Army Master Sgt. Christopher “C.J.” Grisham of Temple.

They were dismissed and ordered to report to resume deliberations Friday morning [Oct. 18, 2013].

During deliberations Thursday, jurors asked to review video of the encounter that Grisham’s son shot and video from a dash-camera in a patrol unit.

The jury started deliberating the case Thursday morning.

Both sides rested Wednesday afternoon.

overpasses for obama impeachment protestors

Marge Moore (L) says a man splashed an unknown liquid on her after pointing a gun at Toni Pendley (R). The two local women are part of the nationwide movement known as Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment.

Look alive patriots, violent left-wing extremist Obama thugs are crawling out of the woodwork….once again.

(WSB Radio) –A group of Gwinnett County women, who are part of a nationwide movement calling for President Barack Obama’s impeachment atop overpasses, were assaulted during their protest Saturday.

The women were holding signs on the overpass at Steve Reynolds Boulevard when they say a man pulled up beside them and pointed a gun at one and splashed another with an unknown liquid.

“I felt it on my foot… it burned, so I thought it was a household chemical,” Marge Moore tells WSB’s Sandra Parrish.

She says just moments earlier, a couple in a car had driven by and threatened to kill them.
……
“We’re going to come back out here,” says Pendley. “We’re not going to let him or anyone intimidate us.”They plan to hold another protest this coming Saturday at the same spot and are told gun owners with carry permits may join them this time.

Colorado: Public Housing Complex To Tenants; ‘Get Rid Of Your Guns Or Get Out’ UPDATE: Gun Ban Policy Thrown Out!

Update: Never be afraid to speak up when it comes to your individual rights being trampled.

"An employee even closed the door on 9Wants to Know reporter Will Ripley as he asked why tenants were being told they can't have firearms." (9News)

“An employee even closed the door on 9Wants to Know reporter Will Ripley as he asked why tenants were being told they can’t have firearms.” (9News)

(9News) –CASTLE ROCK – A controversial gun policy at an apartment complex for seniors has been thrown out after a 9Wants to Know report.

The Douglas County Housing Partnership, a multi-jurisdictional housing authority, held an emergency board of directors meeting late Wednesday afternoon.

Board members decided that the policy, which would have prohibited residents from having firearms in their homes, will not go into effect.

The Douglas County Housing partnership owns Oakwood Apartments in Castle Rock. It was purchased with federal funds and is supported by local, state, and federal tax dollars.

These community policy changes were distributed without the knowledge or authorization of the Board of Directors of the Douglas County Housing Partnership or its staff,” a Douglas County Housing Partnership release said. “This board does not support any action that infringes on an individual’s rights and will not allow Ross Management to implement these changes. The mission of the Douglas County Housing partnership is to preserve and develop safe, secure, quality housing while providing housing choices for those who have few,”

……

The Denver Housing Authority wants to know if Ross Management Group is trying to pull similar rogue gun bans in the city.

The company manages properties in Aurora, Arvada, Denver and Greeley.

“It’s unconstitutional to prohibit the legal possession of a gun or a firearm on public housing property,” a DHA spokesperson said.

United States Constitution: 1 —– Oakwood Apartments: 0
Update 2: This!
David Kaplan:

Now there needs to be pressure put on DCHP to remove Ross Management from managing any & all DCHP properties. If they will try and subvert the constitutional rights of citizens they don’t need to be payed with tax money from citizens.

Start sending emails and letters now to the DCHP and demand that Ross Management be terminated from managing any & all DCHP properties.

The monstrous bullet this piece fires costs about $40 a shot and is made up of 2,400 grains of lead and 240 grains of smokeless powder. When fired it flies at about 2,100 feet per second. The bullet is “25,400 foot pounds of muzzle energy and recoil is 277 foot pounds of recoil energy which is like firing ten thirty aught sixes at one time,” said Dave Fricke of Millennium Manufacturing.
