Detroit, Mich. (Ammoland.com) – IDENTILOCK®, the world’s first biometric fingerprint trigger lock for firearms, is proud to announce their support of the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s program, Project ChildSafe®, through the annual Friends and Family campaign. An IDENTILOCK has been chosen as the grand prize for the final week, June 4 – 8, 2018, of entries.

Project ChildSafe was developed by the NSSF to promote firearm safety through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm Safety Kits. The kits included a cable-style gun locking device and a brochure (also available in Spanish) that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals. Since 1999, more than 15,000 law enforcement agencies have partnered with the program to distribute more than 37 million firearms safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and five US territories. Project ChildSafe has helped raise awareness about the safe and responsible ownership of firearms and the importance of storing firearms securely when not in use to help prevent accidents, theft and misuses.

IDENTILOCK keeps personal defense pistols safe and secure from unauthorized users.

“It is IDENTILOCK’S mission to keep unintentional usage of a firearm from happening yet allow the lawful owner to have quick and easy access to his/her method of self defense in a time of emergency,” Omer Kiyani, founder and creator of the IDENTILOCK system, explained. “It is an honor to work with Project ChildSafe in their efforts to spread gun safety and responsibility messaging to all firearms owners in the United States.”

The IDENTILOCK biometric fingerprint firearm trigger lock was designed to allow firearm owners to keep a self or home defense handgun accessible in a nightstand, desk, purse, car or pack while at the same time keeping it safe and secure from any unauthorized users.

Quick to deploy, the system uses a 360-degree fingerprint reader (and up to three users) to disengage the locking system from the trigger lock, instantaneously. The IDENTILOCK system is ruggedly built to withstand years of abuse and environmental conditions. Available in several models to accommodate the most popular handguns.

Shannon Watts Pretends ‘Average Citizens’ Didn’t Stop Oklahoma Shooting

Oh, good old Shannon Watts. She’s always good for a hot take, now isn’t she?

Most recently, in the aftermath of what might have been a mass shooting in Oklahoma, Watts had to point out that the two armed citizens who stopped the attack weren’t “average citizens.”

Hmmmmm. Fascinating, Shannon.

Please, tell us more.

For example, tell us all about how the police aren’t citizens, or how the National Guard trains its troops for active shooter situations with privately owned handguns.

Of course, let’s not forget that police officers have also been criticized for their accuracy in shootouts before. It’s almost like folks like Shannon are trying to have their cake and eat it too. Tsk, tsk.

Let’s be clear here. Regardless of where Juan Nazario, the former police officer, got his training, he wasn’t a police officer anymore. Brian Whittle wasn’t on duty with the National Guard either.

No, both were living as private citizens, bound by all the same laws you and I are. Nazario was kicking back after work, trying to relax when the shooting started.

What happened then is exactly the kind of thing Shannon is trying to pretend doesn’t really happen. The two men were required to become the “good guy with a gun.” So they did.

Yes, both men previously served in roles that required some amount of firearms training, that’s never been our point about civilian firearm ownership. Our point rests in the fact that both men, despite neither currently enjoying any protected status from gun carry laws, had access to guns. Period.

They could rush to their cars to get their firearms because they had their guns in their cars. Plain and simple.

People like Shannon Watts would have seen both men disarmed and as a result, people would have died in that bar. Possibly a lot of people. If not in the bar, then the killer might have found somewhere else to go and found more targets. Who knows how it would have played out?

What we do know, however, is that a lot fewer people died because armed citizens responded and dealt with the threat long before police could arrive.

It doesn’t matter where they got their training. What matters is that they were there, armed, and ended a life-threatening situation by bringing down a maniac.

Policies supported by people like Shannon Watts would have prevented just that.

Notice she leaves that out of her hot take, which is normal. When an armed citizen responds, she tries to find a way to spin it so that it doesn’t really count, but completely ignores that her positions would have had both men disarmed and would have them serve as nothing but fodder for the killer. This isn’t really surprising, though. It’s not like she can admit that armed citizens are a good thing, not with her deriving all of her income from opposing that exact thing.

Well, they did. Guns saved lives. Again.

No matter how many hot takes Shannon gives, she’ll never be able to change that simple, basic fact.

Why the Art Gallery of Ontario Removed ‘Indian’ from the Name of This Emily Carr Painting

The Art Gallery of Ontario has scrubbed the word “Indian” from the title of a painting by the late Canadian artist Emily Carr, because “that is a word that causes pain,” curator Georgiana Uhlyarik says.

The 1929 painting originally known as Indian Church was re-hung in the Toronto museum in early May under the new name Church at Yuquot Village, a nod to the B.C. Indigenous community where the church was located.

“We feel that we are moving something forward, rather than staying in one place and repeating … the hurt of that word,” Uhlyarik, the co-leader of the AGO’s department of Indigenous and Canadian art, told As It Happens host Carol Off.

The AGO’s move is part of a controversial global trend of removing racially charged language from older pieces of art.

The Rijkmuseum in Amsterdam launched the Adjustment of Colonial Terminology project in 2015 with the goal of reviewing 220,000 titles and descriptions.

Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation

Uhlyarik said the AGO consulted the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation, on whose territory the church was located, before making the change.

“It was the very first phone call that we made,” she said.

The church in the painting was built on member nation Mowachaht Muchalaht’s territory by Christian missionaries in 1889. Carr first saw it on a visit to the West Coast in 1928.

“Carr was quite fascinated with it,” Uhlyarik said. “It’s a really quite a critical painting in her career.”

Carr, who died in 1945, named the painting herself.

The original church burned down, but a new one erected in its place still stands and now serves as a community centre.

Along with the new name, the AGO has erected an informational panel beside the painting that details the history of the church and the context behind the name change.

“We are acknowledging that this is its history, that this is why it was called that, because that is in keeping with the language of her time,” Uhlyarik said.

“But that in terms of the title, we would like to open up this conversation by saying, ‘well, where is this place? What is the history of this place?’ We wanted to give the painting its place — sort of locate it, if you like, on the map.”

Cultural sensitivity in the arts

The name change has ignited debate about history and cultural sensitivity in the arts.

“While in general I am in support of the principles of reconciliation, as an artist I can’t support the change,” Carey Newman, a Kwagiuth/Coast Salish artist, told the Times Colonist newspaper.

“As an artist, I am always aware of my language. If I said harmful words, I would address and take ownership of them. Changing words merely obscures the truth of how people spoke.”

Jan Ross, curator at Emily Carr House, told the newspaper that when an artist names their own work, that name should stand.

“You have to see it in context or you are liable to repeat mistakes,” she said.

But Uhlyarik said the gallery has no intention of whitewashing history.

“We are not at all interested in hiding the history of what the object was titled by the artist and how it was exhibited and how it continues to be reproduced in all of the Emily Carr publications and postcards and posters that are around,” she said.

“We made a very deliberate point in including all this information in the label beside it. The painting itself stands with its history of colonialism, with the history of missionaries on the northwest coast.”

As for other works in the AGO collection with similar terminology?

“We’re going to take it case by case and do it responsibly,” Uhlyarik said. “Because I think it’s time.”

It seems unlikely that Mumia Abu-Jamal will have the chance at justice which he deserves.

A judge decided on Monday to continue the activist’s appeal hearing until August 30, ABC News reported. The former death row inmate has attempted several times before to appeal his conviction. At Monday’s hearing, the judge had to consider whether to vacate those previous failed attempts and grant him another try.

Abu-Jamal’s legal team argues, under Pennsylvania’s Post-Conviction Relief Act, that his rights to appeal conviction were violated by former state Supreme Court Justice Ronald Castille, who was biased in denying Abu-Jamal’s appeals. Castille was the Philadelphia district attorney who argued against Abu-Jamal’s appeals in the high court.

Monday’s hearing came just days after the parole of another former Black activist, Herman Bell, convicted in the 1970s for killing two police officers.

Abu-Jamal, 64, is a former Black Panther and journalist who has always maintained his innocence. A jury convicted him in 1982 for the December 9, 1981 killing of Officer Daniel Faulkner. The jurors found that he shot Faulkner, who was White, several times in a confrontation after the officer pulled over Abu-Jamal’s brother for driving the wrong way on a one-way street. The activist argued that someone else at scene was the actual killer.

After spending 29 years on death row, a judge reduced Abu-Jamal’s sentence to life without parole in 2011. That successful appeal was based on jurors receiving misleading instructions during his initial trial.

To many, Abu-Jamal is a political prisoner. An international movement demands his release. He’s become a symbol for groups protesting for criminal justice system reform. Supporters rallied on Monday to raise awareness about his case.

The attorneys agued that Castille, who is now retired from the bench, should have stepped aside from participating in decisions about appeals in this case. In 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in a different case, that Castille should have recused himself from hearing a death penalty case that he oversaw as district attorney.

Judges routinely recuse themselves when there’s a possibility of a conflict of interest. Indeed, U.S. Supreme Court justices recused themselves at least 180 times in the 2016 term, according to the ABA Journal. That number included 33 recusals because justices held stock ownership of companies involved in cases they were hearing.

Debates about whether Abu-Jamal deserves the right to another appeal come against the backdrop of parole officials releasing Bell on Friday, despite the strong objections of New York City’s police union and mayor.

Bell, 70, spent four decades in prison after pleading guilty to the murders of two NYPD officers. Along with two other members of the Black Liberation Army, Bell ambushed the officers outside a Harlem housing project in 1971. All three men were convicted and sentence to 25 years-to-life in prison. The board granted Bell conditional release after his eighth attempt at getting paroled.
