Felons Behaving Badly – Your turn

This could also be titled “Easy blogfodder for when you’re unable to come up with better.”
I’ve had a lot of blog posts about felons reoffending, sometimes in spectacular and grisly ways. The “label” is “Felons Behaving Badly.” The basic point is that, generally speaking, if a person murders another, they usually have a prior criminal record. This contrasts with the average CHP holder who has no record at all, plus almost never commit a crime. Of course the gun-grabbers want to pretend that the average CHP holder is just a twitch of the finger away from mass murder.
You may have noticed that almost all of my “Felons Behaving Badly” are North Carolina stories. This makes sense for three reasons. Firstly, this is a North Carolina blog. Secondly, I only know how to look up criminal records for North Carolina residents. (well, I know how for PA, but I don’t live there any more) The third reason is because North Carolina supplies me with a plethora of felons without having to look outside the state at all.
Here’s where you come in. Look up the websites of all your state’s TV news stations and larger newspapers. Read the crime news. Take all the names in each story, both victim, suspect, and witnesses, and plug them into you state’s public criminal records website. Then report the ones that pop. What you will find is that the nastier the crime, the more likely that your suspect and victim are previous guests at the State’s fine establishments for the correction of wayward citizens.
The Left, the Media, and the gun-grabbers (but I repeat myself) want to pretend that there isn’t a dimes worth of difference between violent criminals and concealed carriers. They repeatedly tell stories about violent criminals in order to try to disarm you and me. Strike back by publicizing those many, many criminals who are still running around terrorizing the public instead of having paid their debt to society and reformed their ways like we are told.
The big danger is that you will start to read the criminal records and realize that so many criminals are convicted of big crimes and sentenced to very little jail time. It’s frustrating to see how few people get serious sentences until they actually murder someone. You start to wonder if the system is set up that way on purpose. They leave the criminals out on the street to terrorize us, and then they attempt to disarm us in order to make us more dependent upon the State for protection. We give up more and more civil liberties in order to “give the police the power to fight crime.” I know, that’s crazy talk. But look at it this way. The criminals are happy because they are free to do what they want. The government is happy with increased power. We aren’t.
Well, two out of three ain’t bad.

    FELON. We all are so familiar with the word but what is it really? Add a little meat to the bones. See this definition then look up the word history (etymology) for your own verbal ammo.

    Thanks Sean. This may be a prime post for other Bloggers but nearly any of us who read An NC Gun Blog can execute this tactic and have an impact on the grabbers. The public is on our side but the dailymedia (daily + media) keeps them head down in foxholes with a continuous barrage of harassing fire of lies.

    If the 2A club will follow through on this plan we can return fire and maybe re-mobilize some of the infantry public. We have the facts if we will do something with them.

    “The incident happened April 26 at the Lexington Avenue Drive-Thru. Police said Jefferie Barnes had a gun and demanded money from the cash register. Store owner Ahmad Fares shot Barnes three times, according to police.”

    “Barnes is known to local law enforcement. He pleaded guilty April 13 to burglary in connection with an August incident.”

    He was originally charged with aggravated burglary. Plea deal I guess.

    “He is scheduled for sentencing in that case June 1.”

    In the mean time he was released on bond to his own recognizance. If you’ve plead guilty, but haven’t been sentenced yet, are you a convicted felon?
