I have a friend who jokes that a .50 caliber is for when you need to hit the robber behind the refrigerator… in your neighbor’s house. My friend is joking when he says that, but a gun using ammunition that large is no laughing matter when it is pointed at someone.

Unfortunately, two people in Minnesota didn’t know that. Hank Berrien writes,

On Monday night, a 19-year-old Minnesota woman was arrested for shooting her boyfriend to death as part of a YouTube stunt for her blog.

The criminal complaint in the case states that Monilisa Perez, who is pregnant, told police that her boyfriend, Pedro Ruiz, 22, wanted to make a YouTube video of her shooting a book while he was holding it; Ruiz thought the bullet would be stopped by the book. Ruiz had set up a GoPro camera and another camera to record the shooting.

Prior to the incident, Perez had tweeted: “Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most dangerous videos ever. HIS idea not MINE”

After she shot Ruiz, Perez called 911.  When police arrived, they attempted to save Ruiz but he died at the scene. Perez told police Ruiz had shown her a different book which a bullet did not penetrate; she acknowledged to police that she shot Ruiz from one foot away using a .50 caliber Desert Eagle firearm.

According to Tasneem Nashrulla, Perez has a YouTube channel which she hopes to be able to use to become famous. Nashrulla writes, “Perez had uploaded several YouTube videos featuring her and Ruiz, many of which involved doing ‘pranks,’ ‘stunts,’ and ‘challenges.'”

Tragically, this couple’s obvious lack of firearm training will lead to her being famous, but not for any good reason.

It’s this kind of senseless death that should drive home how careful that you need to be as a responsible gun owner and that you should pass on safety instruction to those around you. The world doesn’t need to see another person die because people were too foolish to consider how to be safe.

Of all the crazy reasons to ban guns, this has to be the dumbest. Ar-15’s are totally impractical for most common criminals due to their size, In a world where the vast majority of crimes are committed with handguns, the Ar-15 rules the roost as the home owners weapon of choice.

According to these whacked-out leftists, that isn’t fair to criminals.

Watch Steve Crowders incredulous reaction to this insane argument:

Is this social justice for murders? We need an even playing field for murders? The reality is that the Ar-15 truly is the “good guys” gun. Almost never used in crimes while simultaneously being THE most popular self-defense rifle in America. The left just can’t get over that fact.

If you never heard of Santa please explain how those gifts showed up under the tree yesterday. While your at it, explain to me how Hickok45 (of YouTube fame) is shooting a double barrel 1911.  Maybe this needs repeating, there’s a double barrel 1911 that slings two .45’s downrange at the same time. Yeah such a thing exist, and has for a few years actually. They call it the Dueler Prismatic.

The main temptation in buying one of these is just to see what it can do. Watch the video below and see for yourself:

Can anyone watch this video and not want one. Sure it lacks utility; sure it’s expensive; sure it’s less accurate, but it sure looks like a good time.

This gun was featured in the 2015 James Bond Film Spectre, so you know it’s gotta be good, right? All kidding aside, the gun is one hell of show piece and with a price tag up to $8,000, it better be.

Obviously, this isn’t made for practical self-defense, but you wouldn’t want to be on the other end of it. It’s got some really interesting internal parts and should be a must have oddity for years to come.

You don’t need to be able to afford one to enjoy it. Just watch the video again…and again.

Rants that could change your life.
You’ve seen that jerk…

You know, the one with the camera. 

You’ve seen his YouTube videos. 

Any time some obnoxious behavior goes viral, “That jerk with the video camera” is responsible. You need to consider an important point whenever “that jerk’s” subject area is dealing with the police.

Let me show you why…

If you are worried about the increasing militarization of the police, you’re not alone. Look at the footage out of Ferguson, MI. Their riot gear looks more like Baghdad gear.

It seems like cops are becoming more and more aggressive, and it seems like more and more they don’t care about our rights. You see so many videos of cops mistreating citizens, harassing them, and just bullying them.

And you see more and more these days videos taken by people who seem determined to thwart the police and show other people how to do it. They know their rights and they insist on those rights. By being knowledgeable of the law, they walk rings around the cops who don’t know those laws very well.

The thing is that law enforcement officers are just people. 

Some are good and some are bad. Some abuse their power and some care about not doing that.

And some will try to bully you, while others will respond to the question, “Am I being detained?” by saying, “No, you’re free to go, have a nice day, sir.”

See, lately, it seems like people are deliberately going out and antagonizing police so they can produce those “jerk with the video camera” videos. Sometimes it is open carry activists. Frequently it is people in border states who are challenging the unconstitutional stops and interrogations that the border patrol is doing.

And sometimes it is people who just have an attitude about the cops.

I saw a viral video a while back featuring this guy who claims he just “asked the cops a question” in a late-night diner. He says the cops went ballistic and arrested him for disorderly conduct. His buddy videotaped the altercation and the video made the rounds on Facebook and elsewhere.

But then something interesting happened…

A security camera video surfaced that showed the ENTIRE encounter. It quickly became obvious that the “jerk with the video camera” had exaggerated his innocence and even lied about the cops’ behavior.

This guy had a chip on his shoulder the size of a two-by-four. He went after the cops, treating them rudely, and they actually put up with him for several minutes before they started yelling at him to get lost.

Now, I don’t preach blind obedience to police officers. Just because a police officer gives you an order, that is not reason enough to follow his orders unless his instructions are lawful.

Still, even if you think the cop’s orders are NOT right, the fastest way to find yourself face-down on the hood of a car is to be combative with the police and challenge their authority. If you argue with a cop, it isn’t just him you are arguing with.

He’s thinking the whole time that you are challenging him about the crowd around you. He is very aware that if he loses control of the situation, he is outnumbered. He will treat you accordingly. And if you just plain act like an obnoxious, confrontational jerk, you may end up getting rightfully hauled off by the police because you didn’t know when to quit.

Police do a difficult job. 

Some of them are, well, assh*les. But some aren’t. In any case, they don’t deserve to be accosted and harassed.

Doing so is a lot like sticking your face in a bee’s nest. It’s going to go badly for you no matter how justified you think you are, and the video is going to end up on YouTube where it will be judged and analyzed after the fact.

If you ever think of being “that jerk with the video camera,” keep this in mind …

You may well have to assert your rights and stand up for yourself in a confrontational way, but don’t go LOOKING for trouble just because you want to Fight The Power that day.

Borrowing trouble does one thing for you: It lands you a whole lot of trouble!

That’s no way to live your life and it’s not a long-term survival strategy that is in any way sustainable. Don’t be that jerk.
