Bible Verse
5 Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it: 6 “I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, 7 to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. 8 I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols. 9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.” Isaiah 42:5-9 (ESV)

Gun-toting customers stop attack at SC car dealership, report says
ROCK HILL, S.C. —

A pair of legally armed customers at a car dealership stopped an attack in which a man threatened to kill employees and smashed vehicles with a pipe wrench, according to the Associated Press and a report in The State newspaper.

Aaron Hayes,16th Circuit assistant solicitor, said Alonzo Seegars was unhappy with the service at a car dealership in Fort Mill, and armed himself with a pipe wrench.

The State reported that Seegars threatened to kill a female employee and smashed three vehicles with the wrench Dec. 21 before two customers with concealed carry permits intervened and held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

York County deputies used a stun gun and then tackled Seegars, who suffered a broken leg,the report says.

The report says Seegars was in court Friday for a bond hearing. Seegars was not taken to jail, but hospitalized for physical and mental health reasons. He was served warrants Jan. 2 on charges of attempted murder, assault and battery and breach of peace in an aggravated nature.

An employee testified at Seegars’ bond hearing that the suspect had previously threatened people at the dealership, and on Dec. 21, backed him into a corner with the pipe wrench before a profanity-laced tirade of death threats and smashed cars, The State reported.

Seegars is being held with bond set at $25,000.

A bus full of ugly people had a head on collision with a truck. When they died, God granted all of them one wish. The first person said, “I want to be gorgeous.” God snapped his fingers and it happened. The second person said the same thing and God did the same thing. This want on and on throughout the group. God noticed the last man in line was laughing hysterically. By the time God got to the last ten people, the last man was laughing and rolling on the ground. When the man’s turn came, he laughed and said, “I wish they were all ugly again.”

Boise woman scares off attempted carjacker with pistol: ‘It was shock and fear’

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) — A woman saved herself from a dangerous situation with her pistol kept in her car Monday.

“I couldn’t believe it, it was shock and fear,” said the unidentified woman.

It happened at the corner of west Kootenai and south Hilton streets. A woman just dropped off her 9-year-old daughter Monday morning around 7:30 a.m. She was driving alone when a man jumped out in front of her car. She slammed on the brakes and it stalled.

“He came to the driver’s side door of my car and opened it and demanded my keys and my purse and when I refused to give it to him he started hitting me in the head multiple times,” the woman said.

The would-be carjacker refused to give up.

“He got my face once, and my forehead once, and when that didn’t work he grabbed my hair and began pulling me out of my car and I finally said ‘OK, OK, that’s enough stop! I’ll give you my purse,” said the woman.

So he did. That’s when the woman got the upper hand.

“When I turned to give him my purse, I reached in my center console and I grabbed my gun and I pointed it at him, and it scared him off,” the woman said.

The woman says the man ran down an alley that leads to the back of a nearby Albertsons grocery store. He disappeared from sight. She can only wonder what might have happened if she didn’t have her pistol.

“He probably would’ve dragged me out of my car and kept beating me… I honestly don’t know if he would have stopped,” the woman said.

The suspect remains at large. KBOI 2News withheld the identity of the victim to protect her.

Brother, i’m starting to like this YouTube thing you’re doing, get the shows a little sooner.  I went  to sheepdog seminar in Chattanooga couple weeks ago, it’s amazing how different I feel… it was like a revival for Patriots. But anyway I was wondering if you ever put your info pack together.  The church security info pack you used to talk about every week that you were working on it but I don’t think you have mentioned it in a while. And you really don’t know how good you made me feel when you and Doug were talking about cigars the other day, so I guess I know what to get you for your birthday LOL. If there’s anything I can do to help the two of you and the show please let me know.  you and Doug are a true blessing!  by the way, this week’s show with Matt Reynolds, he is very impressive.

A Priest, A Minister, A Rabbi And A Bear
A priest, a minister, and a rabbi want to see who’s best at his job. So each one goes into the woods, finds 
a bear, and attempts to convert it. Later, they all get together. The priest begins: “When I found the bear, I read to him from the catechism and sprinkled him with holy water. Next week is his first Communion.”

“I found a bear by the stream,” says the minister, “and preached God’s holy Word. The bear was so mesmerized that he let me baptize him.”

They both look down at the rabbi, who is lying on a gurney in a body cast. “Looking back,” he says, “maybe I shouldn’t have started with the 
circumcision.”

 

Cannibal Jokes (Jeff Quinn)

  • A cannibal passed his brother in the woods.
  • Two cannibals were eating a clown. One looks up and says, “Does this taste funny to you?
  • One cannibal is telling the other, “I ate this priest wearing a robe and sandals yesterday, and he tasted terrible!”  
    The other one says, “Well, how did you cook him?”
    “Well, I boiled him.”
    “There’s your problem. He was a FRIAR!”

Trevor from New Zealand “Commander Savage”

Hi Troy and Doug. just finished my last drive for the week. 10 hours on the road + load and unload time. I just wanted to say you guy are still doing an awesome job and keep up the good content.

I’m just about ready to pick out my first pistol and I don’t know what do do. i need something for competition so I’m thinking 9mm. Now i have small hands and when shooting the Sig P226 in the army i found it to big. The one time i got to pick up a Glock the trigger felt squishy, is that what all glocks are like? i like the cz75. it sort of feels about right but haven’t shot it. Are there any pistols you would recommend? I would appreciate your thoughts on the subject. thanks.

2 suspects shot after attempted robbery on Abercorn St. near Truman Pkwy.
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) –
Two armed would-be thieves tried to stick up a Brinks truck parked near a storage business off Abercorn Street near the Truman Parkway. But the guards inside the truck were able to defend themselves and shot both suspects, who then ran from the scene but didn’t make it far.

“We had a great, timely response by the officers in the area. And we had some concerned citizens that helped us and guided us to the right direction. And that’s one of the reasons that this turned out as well as it did this afternoon,” said SCMPD Capt. Ashley Brown.
Neither Brinks employee was injured.

The suspects have been identified as Gregory Plair, 32 and Joshua Scott, 21. Both are facing charges of aggravated assault with intent to rob, criminal attempt at hijacking a motor vehicle and criminal attempt at armed robbery.

Thanks to assistance from the Brink’s security guards and local citizens, police were able to quickly apprehend one of the suspects at a nearby apartment complex. Minutes later the second suspect showed up at the hospital and was taken into custody.

Both suspects received treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

The Duck Dog
An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. they fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it. The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word. On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, “Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?” “I sure did,” responded the pessimist. “He can’t swim.”

 

Weekly Bible Verses:

Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

Main Topic
Today in 1815, Americans defeat British forces at the Battle of New Orleans!

Did you know that we used to celebrate January 8 as a national holiday, with fireworks & celebrations, just like the Fourth of July!

We felt that we’d won the war that was, effectively, our 2nd war of independence! The outcome of the Revolution had been more than just a fluke!

On December 24, 1814, Great Britain and the United States signed a treaty in Ghent, Belgium that effectively ended the War of 1812. News was slow to cross the pond, however, and on January 8, 1815, the two sides met in what is remembered as one of the conflict’s biggest and most decisive engagements. In the bloody Battle of New Orleans, future President Andrew Jackson and a motley assortment of militia fighters, frontiersmen, slaves, Indians and even pirates weathered a frontal assault by a superior British force, inflicting devastating casualties along the way. The victory vaulted Jackson to national stardom, and helped foil plans for a British invasion of the American frontier.

Man shot during home invasion; suspect in custody
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Police have a man in custody for a burglary that ended with two people shot. Officers were called to a home in the 7900 block of Victory Drive in Wards Corner around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday. They arrived to find two men suffering from gunshot wounds. Both men were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and are both expected to fully recover from their injuries. Detectives have determined that 22-year-old Robert Hicks forced his way into the home, then exchanged gunfire with a 23-year-old man inside. Both men were shot. Hicks is charged with armed burglary, according to Norfolk Police. A witness at the scene told 10 On Your Side, “I was sleeping and about an hour ago, and we heard, pop, pop gunshots. My son immediately came to the room,  woke me up … I look out my window, and I see them (police) out there with their guns drawn.” This witness, who did not want to be identified, said she heard police tell a man to “get on the ground” at least 10 times. She said she feared there was going to be a standoff between that man and officers.

New years resolution
John, at a New Year’s party, turns to his friend, Dave, and asks for a smoke.

“I thought you made a New Year’s resolution and that you don’t smoke,” Dave says.

“I’m in the process of quitting,” replies John with a grin. “I am in the middle of phase one.”

“Phase one?” asks David.

“Yeah,” laughs John, “I’ve quit buying.”

Hello Brothers,

This month my Wife and I celebrated our daughter’s first birthday and I wanted to thank you for the show.  It has helped me through self doubt, overtime to make ends meet, and long nights with a fussy baby.

Our daughter is such a blessing and a MUCH better child than I deserve.

I joke with my Wife that if God never gives you more than you can handle then I must be a lightweight with how good she is.

Our decision to have my Wife be a stay at home mom has predictably made things a little tight money wise and I have been praying with my Daughter every night for God to give me wisdom to make good choices with our money.

If you guys have room for us in a prayer I sure would appreciate it.

Thank you for your time and congratulations on the move and new expanded video capability.   It has been great to see you guys on YouTube!

George.

 

Weekly Bible Verses:
James 4:13-17

Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.

MABLETON, GA (CBS46) –

Two men tried to outgun the owner of a gun store in Mableton, but it did not work out as planned.

It happened Monday morning at the Dixie Gun and Pawn on Veterans Memorial Highway in Cobb County.

Jimmy Groover told police two men wearing masks came in with guns drawn, demanding that he get on the floor, while shouting they were going to kill him.

Groover said he was wearing a pistol on his hip, and he used it to fire back at the robbers, killing one of them.

Police said a series of bullets were fired in both directions.

One of the store’s front windows was shattered from a gunshot.

The other man escaped in a silver Dodge Charger.

Groover and his family have run the store in the same location for about 30 years. He said his store has been broken into more times than he can remember, but no one has ever tried to rob the place while it was open.

Weekly Bible Verses:
32 : 1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

5 I acknowledged my sin to you,

and I did not cover my iniquity;

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah

6 Therefore let everyone who is godly

offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;

surely in the rush of great waters,

they shall not reach him.

7 You are a hiding place for me;

you preserve me from trouble;

you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,

which must be curbed with bit and bridle,

or it will not stay near you.

10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,

but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.

11        Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,

and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Man shoots 2 armed men who tried to rob him at ATM, police say

PITTSBURGH – A man shot two would-be robbers early Thursday an ATM in Homewood, according to Pittsburgh police.

The 42-year-old man told police he was using an ATM on North Homewood Avenue shortly after 1 a.m., when two masked 16-year-olds with guns approached him and tried to rob him.

Police said he pulled out his own gun and shot one of the would-be robbers in the leg and the other in the stomach. The man, who was not injured, had a license to carry the firearm. “The victim happened to have a weapon that he is licensed to carry and he used that to defend himself in this situation,” police spokesperson Sonya Toler said.

Both of the would-be robbers were taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Police recovered the teenagers’ guns at the scene.

Charges against them are pending.

A Hymn with Punch

A preacher was finishing a rousing sermon against the evils of drink. His voice filling the church, he said, “If I had all the beer in the world, I’d take it and throw it into the river.”

Growing more impassioned, he shouted, “And if I had all the wine in the world, I’d take it and throw it into the river.”

Finally, he thundered, “And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I’d take it and throw it into the river.” He sat down.

The song leader then stood up and announced, “For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365: ‘Shall We Gather at the River.'”

Greetings from the Peach State
5 Star by Marvin Fore – Sept 14
As a fellow Christian I find it very refreshing to see other men openly praising Jesus. I really enjoy the podcast and think these guys are a great team. I have enjoyed the variety of the topics they cover, not just boring springs and trigger gun talk. A very down to earth opinion of two guys that are not employed in the gun market. Thank you both for taking your time to share with us your valuable opinions. I believe our country needs more men like us in our countries current situation.

God Bless and Stay safe



From Kaleb Olson

Troy and Doug,
Hello, my name is Kaleb Olson and I have been listening to your podcasts for a few months now. I am very passionate about firearms and am a proud follower of Jesus. I am a junior biology major in college and have been blessed to be able to lead a small group for a college ministry called SALT Company. My mentor and I had an extended conversation about concealed carry and self-defense as Christians. We were wrestling with the topic because if we truly have put all our trust in Jesus Christ than who are we to take our lives into our own hands by defending them with a firearm or other self-defense weapons?

One of your podcasts I had listened to, you guys made King David the example. King David killed many men and many in defense for his life. King David is obviously considered a man after God’s own heart but as I stated above, we couldn’t help but to feel like our trust might not be in the Lord if we choose to defend ourselves. I mentioned your podcast to my mentor and we mutually sought to get both of your input on this topic. I already know your answer but I would like your explanations. I would greatly appreciate it.

I would also just like to extend my sincerest thanks to you for using a platform such as podcast to boldly spread the gospel. If I may, I’d also like to make a prayer request. Our church is growing at an astounding rate and as such we were looking for a new building. It just so happens that another local church was considering finding a new location and we are actually “swapping buildings”. I’d ask that you pray that we are able to raise the funds to make all the payments on the new building and that it won’t limit our ability to do ministry by cutting our current budget too tight.

I plan on leaving you an iTunes review in the near future when I get some time and figure out how to do it! Lastly, I’d like to commit to buying a patch, t-shirt, and one of the decals! I’d like the t-shirt in medium please. I noticed you have them up on the website store but I figured since I was already in contact with you about this that I’d just order them through the email! So I’d like your instructions on payment.

Once again, thank you and I am greatly looking forward to your input.

God bless,

Kaleb Olson

70-year-old man fights off home invader, KRQE, Albuquerque, N.M. 09/09/16

A 70-year-old man who walks using a cane was at home in Tijeras, N.M. when an intruder broke into the house. The home invader attacked the elderly man with a hockey stick and a piece of bamboo. The elderly man responded to the attack by retrieving a .38-caliber handgun and shooting his assailant, killing him.

The elderly man’s neighbors were supportive of his actions, with one telling a local media outlet, “Good for him. That’s awesome that he was able to think that fast and he was able to protect himself.” Another neighbor added, “Thank god that he’s armed and you know, most of us up here are. I hope people see this is not a good place to come for sure.” (KRQE, Albuquerque, N.M. 09/09/16)

Doug and Troy,

I just wanted to reach out to you guys and thank you for what you guys are doing. It really is a breath of fresh air in the society around us to hear you guys talking about the gospel and also about Christian gun ownership. I just stumbled onto this podcast recently, so I have been playing catch up on recent episodes.

I am sure you took care of this Troy (I think it was Troy), one of your listeners must have queued you in. You mentioned on your Gen4 Glock the back-strap not staying on. I think you’re not installing it right. In the back of the grip there is a small pin that you need to push out, and when you install the back-strap on, you then push in the larger pin in that was supplied with the pistol. Hope this helps. I really enjoy the Gen4 models due to the changeable backstrap. Once the larger pin is installed it shouldn’t be an issue.

I wanted to help you guys out with a joke, like I said I am recent listener so you might have heard this one already.

A pastor decides to miss church on Sunday to go bear hunting with some friends one weekend. The guilt of missing service is really bothering him throughout the drive. While walking down a road on the side of a hill a huge bear jumps out. The pastor loses his balance and falls downhill. When he stops at the bottom of the hill his leg is badly damaged so he cannot get up and run. The bear is now running downhill full speed towards him. The pastor starts praying “Lord I know I shouldn’t have missed service today, please forgive me. I will never miss another service to go hunting again, please put your hand on this bear and still his rage.” The bear halts to a stop just before the pastor, kneels down and prays “Please Lord bless this food you have given me”.

I look forward to more episodes. My local church is Midlothian Bible Church in Midlothian,TX an hour south of Dallas. If you guys are ever coming down this way, we have a great local range and tons of guns. Let me know. Keep spreading the word.

A friend of mine is a missionary in Africa. His little 4 year old daughter became worried that there wouldn’t be anyone for her to marry when the time came. She worried about it all the time for a week. Finally she had an idea. She said, daddy, will you marry me? To make his little girl happy he said ok honey, daddy will marry you. Now happy at last she planned the big day as only a 4 year old can.

Everything was set, they all dressed up and daddy was going to perform the wedding as well as be in it. When the time came he looked at his daughter and said now it’s time for the wedding vows. Without missing a beat she yelled out, A,E,I,O,U.

The wedding was over.

Thanks,

Hi Troy and Doug – I have been listening to the show for about six months now and wanted to drop you guys a line and say thank you for the work that you do each week in producing the podcast.

I also wanted to take the time to thank you for helping to encourage me to get back into shooting and gun ownership and share a bit of my story with you guys.

I got into duck hunting and trap shooting when I was in junior high years ago, but fell away from hunting and shooting when I went through some tough times during high school and my early twenties.

When I was thirty, I came to Christ. During the first few years of my walk, I simply enjoyed the newness of spiritual growth and tended to avoid processing the tougher issues of ethics and faith. Now that I’m more mature, I am revisiting my thoughts on many things.

I grew up always wanting to serve in the military, but had an injury and a medical condition that kept me out of the service. Not being able to serve was actually what caused me to turn away from God back in high school. I sometimes struggle with regret for not serving when so many of my generation served us with great honor in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The more and more I’ve struggled with this, I began to have some dark spots and doubts in my faith. Anyway, I heard about the book “A Time to Kill: The Myth of Christian Pacifism” by Greg Hopkins from you guys a while back. It has been very helpful in integrating my beliefs about military service, gun ownership, and self-defense ethics with my relationship with Jesus. Thank you for having Greg on the show!

After eighteen years of not shooting, I was re-introduced to guns last fall by my wife’s cousin who is a police officer. Now at the age of thirty six and having just received the precious gift our first daughter, I’ve begun to seriously consider my role as protector of my family.

A mentor from church and I recently completed our CCW class at Bill’s Gun Shop in Robbinsdale, MN. I rented a pistol from the range to complete the class, and am saving up money whenever I can towards the purchase of my first pistol and to pay for the CCW permit fees. (I’m leaning towards a G19; by the way – nice MOS build Troy!) With our new daughter and mine and my wife’s student loans, things are tight, so I’m also working on a side business to help pay for ammo, range time, and some training classes.

The business is called Cross & Dot Optics and will be an online retailer of Red Dots, Scopes, and shooting accessories. The name was inspired a bit by Crossbreed Holsters and a word I got years ago to start ‘Kingdom ventures’. I’m still looking for ideas to integrate the Kingdom connection for this business, but right now I’m leaning towards allocating a portion of the profits to veterans ministries.

In the beginning I just hope to serve the shooting community, police and military with excellent customer service and a great online user experience to make shopping for optics simple and easy. The site is under construction and will launch later this summer, but I’ve started the store’s Instagram account @crossndotoptics to keep folks up-to-date. For now I am curating a feed of the Internet’s best optics equipped pistols, rifles, carbines and shotgun images.

Again, I want to thank you guys for your work. Keep up the great podcast and I hope you guys are able to get your T-Shirt store up and running sometime soon.

Blessings,

Weekly Bible Verses
13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. 14 In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. 15 If anyone stirs up strife, it is not from me; whoever stirs up strife with you shall fall because of you. 16 Behold, I have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and produces a weapon for its purpose. I have also created the ravager to destroy; 17 no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.” Proverbs 6:13-17 (ESV)

A Life of Violent Threats Paved Way for Orlando Attack

Again and again for much of his life, Omar Mateen let people know he was a violent, dangerous person capable of murder. Repeatedly, he wiggled out of trouble, distracting officials with a beguiling charm, a feigned stupidity or some other tactic.

A look at Mateen’s troubled life, based on interviews with officials and people who knew him, as well as documents, reveals that on at least a dozen occasions, beginning when he was in grade school, he gave clues in a public setting that he was capable of mayhem.

At age 14, he said he could shoot an AK-47 and mimicked an airplane flying into the World Trade Center. At 26, he bragged to courthouse co-workers of terrorist ties. Weeks ago, at 29, Mateen sought to buy heavy-duty body armor and bulk ammunition.

Many of his violent outbursts aped or celebrated Islamic terrorism and he repeatedly claimed connections to known terrorists, including the Boston Marathon bombers. He cheered the 9/11 attacks on the day they happened and once threatened to shoot partygoers at a barbecue when pork, which is forbidden to Muslims, touched his hamburger.

There doesn’t appear to be a moment when Mateen’s political extremism and religious zealotry kicked into high gear. Rather, this appears to be a case of slow, steady intensification.

Law-enforcement officials say he became radicalized online yet key facts remain unknown about what drove him to launch a terror attack. Officials are probing what his wife knew about his plans. Investigators are scrutinizing Mateen’s communications and travel history to detail any direct or indirect influence he might have had with terror networks.

Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan on Thursday called the Orlando massacre part of a pattern of attacks Islamic State is trying to encourage by “sympathizers who have no direct links to the group.”

Twice during his adult life, Mateen’s actions prompted probes by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Agents concluded he didn’t pose an immediate threat.

Robert Zirkle, who knew him through school in 2001, said: “We joked that he’d become a terrorist. And then he did.”

On Sunday, he went into an Orlando nightclub, murdered 49 people and injured 53, and claimed the moment for Islamic State.

Mateen’s story cuts to the heart of the worst scenario for domestic law enforcement and policy makers. While he hadn’t committed a crime as an adult, his record was replete with incidents that troubled those around him.

Early Sunday, the trail of threats culminated with the massacre Mateen had in a sense been foretelling for almost two decades, raising troubling questions in particular for the FBI and his most recent employer, G4S Secure Solutions.

FBI director James Comey said this week he doesn’t think the FBI should have done anything differently in its earlier probes, though it is conducting a far-reaching review to see what the FBI may have misjudged. G4S, a British security firm, said in a statement two screenings it conducted of Mateen found nothing disqualifying.

After each disturbing eruption of anger, Mateen always danced just out of reach of those who could have stopped him. He hopped from school to school, job to job. Paper records were drawn up, notice was taken but little seemed to follow him.

Omar Mateen’s trouble began early. He was disciplined at school 31 times between 1992 and 1999, for reasons including hitting another student, school records show. He was constantly demanding attention, either as a goofball or a bully, regularly wearing a gym shirt in high school emblazoned with his name, “O. Mateen,” classmates said.

Kathleen Zurich, who said she taught Mateen in fourth and fifth grade, characterized him as a bully who called classmates “ugly” or “gay” and painted himself as a victim—but had a softer side. “That’s the scary part,” she said. “There was a nice side of him that you can see, and yet he can be so nasty. Almost like a Dr. Jekyll and Hyde personality.”

At a barbecue in the spring of 2007, Mateen erupted when his hamburger touched a piece of pork, something he considered a religious affront. He told the class he ought to kill all of them, recalled Susanne Coburn Laforest, 61, who attended the barbecue as a trainee. Mateen told his classmates not to laugh at him because this was serious and “was going to come back and shoot us,” she said.

Not long after, Mateen was sitting in his car in the parking lot as classes were about to resume, when authorities swarmed the auto and escorted him off the property. An official told cadets Mateen had threatened to bring a gun on campus, according to Clinton Custar, who was attending the academy at the time and saw the incident from a classroom window.

This was the same month Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and Mateen threatened to carry out a similar massacre at the police academy because he felt like he was being taunted for being Muslim, said a fellow cadet.

Robert Lane, a spokesman for the school, now Indian River State College, said it had no record that Mateen was involved in disciplinary actions or had interactions with campus security. Mateen was released from the academy in April 2007 when his employment with the Department of Corrections ended, he said.

ZACHARY SCHEFFER FOR THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Mateen was hired by G4S, essentially working as a security guard. People who encountered him for a few minutes each day at various sites described him as jovial and pleasant. But in a video that surfaced this week, showing Mateen in 2010 at a gate to the BP PLC cleanup site, he again expresses grievance, albeit calmly.

Grandiose boasts about terrorist ties, when he was 26, put Mateen on the FBI’s radar. He was starting to spook co-workers at the St. Lucie County Courthouse, where he was a security guard. Colleagues reported Mateen was bragging about knowing people in al Qaeda and claiming he was a Hezbollah member. He told co-workers he knew associates of the Tsarnaev brothers, who had bombed the Boston Marathon that year, according to the complaints.

“The FBI is very eager to find out” about his motives, “even if it is a very complicated and conflicting set of motivations,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

Several weeks ago, Mateen walked into Lotus Gunworks of South Florida. He acted strange, said store co-owner Robbie Abell, asking for heavy-duty body armor and bulk ammunition. He “just seemed very odd,” Mr. Abell said. The store didn’t stock body armor and refused to sell him bulk ammunition.

Mateen moved along, as he had on other occasions when he incurred suspicion or fear. He found what he was looking for somewhere else.

Homeowner on Detroit’s west side shoots intruder, shares his story with 7 Action News

DETROIT (WXYZ) – It was a harrowing encounter on Detroit’s west side, when a homeowner shot the intruder who was holding him and his wife at gunpoint. It happened before 6:00 Monday night at a home off Beaverland Rd. near Eaton. Detroit police said two men ordered the homeowner and his wife into their house and then into the basement. Daniel McNamara is the homeowner. He told his incredible story only to 7 Action News.

“He kept telling us to turn around, I said ‘No, I’m not going to turn around,’ I said ‘You’ve got to kill me face to face’,” said McNamara. He said the suspects wanted him and his wife to turn around so they wouldn’t remember their faces. During the home invasion, the suspects took both of the McNamara’s wedding rings, her purse, cash and cell phones.

“He kept pointing the gun at my head and said, ‘You don’t think I’ll kill you face to face?’ I said ‘I don’t know, but you’re going to have to because I’m not turning around’,” said McNamara. He said he happened to have a gun stashed in the same area the suspects were holding the pair at gunpoint. “All I could think about, how can I get that gun,” said McNamara. He took his opportunity when one of the suspects said he would be right back and turned around and headed toward the stairs. “Of course I was scared, who wouldn’t be? Some goon has a gun to your head and tells you he’s going to shoot you because you’ve seen his face,” said McNamara.

He fired off two shots and hit one of the suspects once. Both of the suspect’s ran away very fast, McNamara believes there was likely a car waiting. One of the suspects turned up at the hospital and the second suspect is still on the run.

“The Lord looked out for us today,” said McNamara. Police continued to search the neighborhood for hours, but came up empty handed.

The Funeral Ride
We, along with a bunch of other relatives, were following the hearse of my late great aunt. When my daughter, who always tends to focus on the morbid things in life raised the dreaded question, “Dad, what’s going to happen to us  when you die?” My son who was busy texting one of his friends at the time barely glanced up from his phone. “We’ll go in the limousine dummy.”

Weekly Bible Verses
“And the people complained in the hearing of the Lord about their misfortunes, and when the Lord heard it, his anger was kindled, and the fire of the Lord burned among them and consumed some outlying parts of the camp. Then the people cried out to Moses, and Moses prayed to the Lord, and the fire died down. So the name of that place was called Taberah, because the fire of the Lord burned among them. Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also wept again and said, “Oh that we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. But now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at.” ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭11:1-6‬ ‭ESV

Homeowner thwarts burglary attempt, WKRG, Mobile, Ala. 05/3/16
Al Taylor was at home with his family in West Mobile, Ala. when he heard a suspicious noise in the garage. Taylor went to investigate and discovered a man attempting to steal lawn equipment. Taylor responded by retrieving a .22-caliber revolver and holding the man at gunpoint until police could arrive.

A local news story made clear that Taylor uses his lawn equipment to help people through his ministry. In recalling the incident to a local news outlet, Taylor said, “I probably would have let him go if he didn’t just stop lying and then when I saw all my stuff pulled out and he was going to steal it, it kind of made me angry.” (WKRG, Mobile, Ala. 05/3/16)
