Is creepy Labour stalking Judith Collins?

Yesterday Labour via Shane Jones levelled an appalling accusation against Judith Collins, that she is living on Paritai Drive in Stone Shi’s house.

This particular nasty little rumour has been flying around for months as Labour and Winston Peters worked together to try to neutralise one of National’s most potent weapons.

Embattled Justice Minister Judith Collins appeared to be close to tears this afternoon after she was targeted by the Opposition over her links with wealthy businessman Deyi Shi.

Ms Collins was yesterday facing Opposition claims she lobbied a senior Chinese border control official on behalf of Mr Shi’s company milk exporter Oravida during a dinner in Beijing in the wake of the Fonterra botulism scare.

However on the way into Parliament this afternoon Ms Collins appeared to become distraught when asked by reporters about suggestions from Labour MP Shane Jones that she had been staying at Mr Shi’s home – the luxury Paritai Drive mansion originally built for Mark Hotchin.

“I’m really disgusted actually that Shane would do that. It’s actually really hurtful. I’ve been to the home that Mr Shi has bought on many occasions because he is a close personal friend and he’s away a lot but I’ve never lived there.

“I don’t stay there, I’ve been there. It’s because it’s a very place to go and look at and I’m sure that if he wanted to he could sell tickets for people to go and have a look at it.

“I never put the boot into Shane and yet he’s gone and done that. That’s disgusting.¬† Read more »

Who says pistols aren’t accurate?

I used to shoot pistols. I was very good…but then again I put literally thousands of rounds down range and shot almost every Saturday and Sunday.

I shot so much that I’d spend the rest of the week reloading.

One comment I always got when someone asked about pistol shooting was that they believed that pistols weren’t very accurate. My response was that pistols are in fact very accurate, it is the shooter who isn’t accurate.

I could put 6 rounds from my S&W model 10 into the target so that an old 50 cent piece could cover the holes…at 50m. I could do this because I’d shoot thousands of rounds at that range and I knew my load, my gun and the range intimately.

The professionals shoot even more and as a consequence can perform feats like this…A Glock .45ACP hitting a steel target at 215 years!

But then again this is Jerry Miculek…one of the greatest pistol shooters alive.

India launches handgun for women, outrage ensues

(Made by ordnance factory, Nirbheek weighs 500 grams and can fit into a purse.)

SkyNews reports on India’s release of handgun for women.¬†Outrage ensued…not because over the rape culture of India but because now women would now have a special gun to protect themselves.

And it is an ugly looking outdated pathetic hand gun too.

A Indian handgun designed for women and named after the victim of a fatal gang-rape in Delhi has been condemned by rights activist as a disgrace to her memory.

The lightweight .32 calibre revolver was developed by the state-run Indian Ordnance Factory (IOF) and can fit inside a small purse or handbag, according to a newspaper report.

The factory in the northern city of Kanpur has received 20 orders since the titanium-alloy, six-shot gun – costing 122,360 rupees ($A2,228) – was launched earlier this month, the Times of India said on Friday.

‘At least 80 per cent of the bookings are from women,’ IOF general manager Abdul Hameed told the newspaper, adding that more orders were expected soon.

‘Expectedly, the weapon has received a very good response,’ he said.

The gun is called ‘Nirbheek’ meaning ‘fearless’ in Hindi and was intended as a tribute to the 23-year-old student whose brutal attack in India’s capital in December 2012 sparked outrage about the levels of violence against women in India. ¬† Read more »

IPCA needs to mandate better shooting and empty magazines

The IPCA has found the cops were justified in shooting a ratbag who took a hammer and knife to his missus…unfortunately he survived after being Glocked.

Perhaps the IPCA should come out with a recommendation that Police attend more training so they can shoot better and require they empty the magazine at the target.

Police were justified in shooting a man who attacked his pregnant partner with a hammer and a knife, an independent inquiry has found.

Ruka Hemopo, 47, survived being shot by police with a Glock pistol and a Taser stun gun during a domestic incident in the Porirua suburb of Waitangirua on May 2.¬† Read more »

As usual media got it wrong

Now the facts are starting to come out we find out that the killer in Washington DC never had semi-automatic weapons at all…he used a pump action shotgun and stole Glock handguns from his victims.

This is why people like Piers Morgan should just stfu.

Authorities investigating Monday’s D.C. shooting spree believe the gunman brought a shotgun, legally purchased from a suburban Virginia gun shop, to the Navy Yard and acquired additional weapons at the scene, according to three law enforcement officials.

The officials said Aaron Alexis of Fort Worth, Texas, a 34-year-old discharged Navy engineer, entered the building with a Remington 870 12-gauge shotgun that he’d purchased last week in Lorton, Va., and was later found with two additional weapons, one of them a Glock handgun.

One scenario authorities were investigating was that he obtained the handgun and the other weapon at the scene, possibly from victims. But officials cautioned the evidence analysis was still very fluid Monday night.¬† Read more »

Should have used the Glock from the get go

This is why Police need to use the Glock in the first instance. It is a terrible case where the sole officer’s nearest police suport was 70km away. By the time those reinforcements had arrived this police officer could well be dead.

Fortunately some members of the public and Fire Service intervened. They are heros.

Tactically, in an agressive situation it may well have been better fi the officer had drawn his Glock in the first instance.

Firefighters and Kawhia locals came to the rescue of a rural Waikato policeman last night when he was knocked to the ground and attacked by at least five offenders, police say.

The policeman had been set upon by at least five people, who were kicking him as he coiled up in pain on the Kawhia wharf, as about 80 members of the public watched on, inspector Rob Lindsay said.

The group took his taser, his radio and his pistol and were only stopped when local firefighters and the public stepped in to intervene. If they hadn’t, the outcome could have been much worse, Lindsay said.

Although the officer had called for back-up, his closest colleagues were 70km away in Ngahinapouri and couldn’t make it to the scene in time to put a quick stop to the attack, which left him with serious bruising and grazing to his face, arms and body.

No one could have faulted the police officer had he drawn and shot these offenders.¬† Read more »

Lucky they weren’t Glocked

I really don’t get people who oppose the Taser being deployed. They come up with all sorts of spurious details to oppose them.

A disproportionate number of people with mental health issues are being stung by Tasers, figures show.

Since the nationwide rollout of Tasers in March 2010, they have been drawn by police officers 1320 times and discharged 212 times.

The battery-powered stun guns fire electric barbs, which penetrate a person’s skin and deliver a shock of up to 50,000 volts.

Numbers released under the Official Information Act show nearly a third of those hit were considered by police to have mental health issues.

Mental Health Foundation chief executive Judi Clements said they had always feared those with mental health problems would be a target for officers using Tasers and the figures confirmed that.

She was also concerned by the lack of research around the long-term effects of the weapons’ use, particularly because those with psychological issues often had physical problems too.

Shit a brick…my word people are stupid.¬† Read more »
