CNN Warns of Gun Surge at TSA Checkpoints

This week CNN itself is personified as a stupid person. Low hanging fruit, I know. They get their panties in a twist over a literal 1-in-a-million increase.

CNN is sounding the warning on a “surge” in airline passengers with guns in their bags at TSA checkpoints in airports.

CNN notes that “transportation security officers confiscated a gun from about 10 passengers in every 1 million” during 2020, but are now “finding 11 armed passengers in every 1 million.” That is a jump of one passenger per million.

After cops killed son, mother uses $5 million settlement to supply guns for teen gang

Fourteen people, including two young teenagers, have now been charged following an investigation into the murder of a Malaga, Calif. man.

Christina Lopez, 42, of Madera, Calif. is one of the 14 people arrested in the death of Javier Fernandez.

She’s facing felony charges of conspiracy to provide firearms to a minor for the benefit of a street gang, child endangerment, and conspiracy to provide a firearm to a gang member.

But it’s how prosecutors say she funded the crime that has many outraged.

Smittcamp says Lopez bought guns, used in the killing, with money from a multi-million dollar settlement after Fresno police killed her son.

Back in 2017, Lopez’s 16-year-old son Isiah Murrieta-Golding was shot and killed by Fresno Police. The shooting happened during a chase, as he was wanted for killing a man.

Michael Haddad, Lopez’s attorney after her son’s death, says the City of Fresno had to pay out $4.9 million this past August to settle the case related to Isiah’s death.

During a news conference Friday, prosecutors said Lopez used money that she received from the city to help fund this crime.

Smittcamp adds Lopez now faces approximately 10 years in state prison.

“And she has continued now to take the money from her settlement that she received from the City of Fresno to buy and purchase a home where she lives, in addition to spending thousands of dollars on guns that she then, in turn, has given to her 14-year-old son,” said DA Smittcamp, “And I didn’t misspeak, 14-year-old son, who is distributing them, sharing them and selling them with other gang members in the community.”

That 14-year-old is also facing felony charges for gun possession, conspiracy to commit crimes, and street gang enhancements.

The lawyer who represented Lopez during the settlement case says some of that money went to Isiah’s father.

He adds, “I think she’s a good mom and I can’t see her doing something like this.”

Now, the city may be looking to get some of that settlement money back.

Smittcamp says the settlement was lawfully given to Lopez, but she said her office would need to do some research to see if there’s a way to seize any of that money.

Up until last month, law enforcement only had still photos from a surveillance video. Looking for answers, the Sheriff’s office posted the still shot asking the public for help.

Since then, the investigation has moved along quite a bit, and Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said it’s largely due to two solid tips that came into Valley Crime Stoppers.

Yellowstone Tourist Gets Jail Time For Refusing To Back Off Charging Grizzly

When Darwin doesn’t work, the justice system has to step in.

A tourist has been jailed after being “dangerously close” to a grizzly bear at Yellowstone National Park.

25 year-old Samantha Dehring, an Illinois native, was visiting the park in May 2021 when she noticed a grizzly accompanied by her three cubs. While surrounding visitors backed away and reentered their vehicles, Dehring stayed, reported KTVQ News.

Witnesses took pictures and recorded videos of the incident which were distributed among media outlets and social media, leading to Dehring’s identification.

National Parks Service said in a press release Dehring “pleaded guilty to willfully remaining, approaching, and photographing wildlife within 100 yards. The other count, feeding, touching, teasing, frightening, or intentionally disturbing wildlife, was dismissed,” officials announced.

Federal Judge Mark L. Carman, the judge in charge of her sentencing hearing, stated he understood Dehring’s distress after she said she had suffered emotionally as a result of social media attacks and has had to delete all of her social media accounts since the incident, KTVQ News reported.

Dehring will serve four days in the Gallatin County Detention Center and will pay a $1,000 in fine as well as another $1,000 to the Yellowstone Forever wildlife protection fund, according to the Associated Press.

    Lawd halp…teh stoopid is strong…and getting stronger. Common sense is no longer very common.

    It’s quite plain that evolution missed the Illinois woman. How come she wasn’t turned into a sandwich by Mama Bear? That’s the real question.

    • Hatchet says:

      Maybe like Charlie the Tuna – this Bear wasn’t looking for someone with good taste but more likely, looking for someone that taste’s good..?

    Okay, Tough-on-gun-crime Biden administration, what federal charges is that straw-purchaser mother facing?

    • Poetrooper says:

      But…but…David…didn’t you see?

      She’s a person of color, so no charges pending from the Biden Justice Department.

  5. UpNorth says:

    Hey, City of Fresno, next time the police drop an on-the-run murderer, tell the next of kin and their shyster to pound sand and go to trial. You might save the taxpayers a few million $$, and the gang-bangers will have to look elsewhere for their guns.
