Here is a cautionary tale for those law-abiding citizens who submitted to pressure by gun grabbers and got their gun permits, as required.
Recently Florida businessman John Filippidis took his family on a road trip to New Jersey, but left his handgun at home in the safe. John has a concealed-weapon license; he plays by the rules.
“I wanted to be able to defend my family, my household and the ground I’m standing on,” he told The Tribune.“But I’m not looking for any trouble.”
Filippidis decided to keep the gun home, locked in the safe, when the family took a road trip to New Jersey to celebrate Christmas and attend a wedding.
The visit went as planned. The family’s return to Florida was another matter.
Shortly after entering Maryland with his wife, Kelly, and three teenage girls, Filippidis noticed he was being checked out by an unmarked police car. The car would follow for a bit, pull slowly ahead, then fall back again behind the family’s 2012 Ford Explorer.
“Ten minutes he’s behind us,” Filippidis said.“We weren’t speeding. In fact, lots of other cars were whizzing past. We keep wondering, is he going to do something?”
When the family was pulled over, they discovered they’d been bird-dogged by the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.
Ten minutes after an officer took Filippidis’ license, registration and proof of insurance to his patrol car, he returned the documents, ordered him out of the vehicle and told him to hook his thumbs behind his back and spread his legs.
“You own a gun,” the officer said.“Where is it?”
“At home in my safe,” Filippidis replied.
The officer told him to stay put, then returned to the Explorer to check with Kelly Filippidis.
“Your husband owns a gun,” he told her.“Where is it?”
She wasn’t aware that he’d left it home, and told the officer it could be anywhere — in the glove box, in the console — she just didn’t know. The officer walked back to Filippidis, who was still standing spread-legged between the SUV and cop car.
“You’re a liar,” the officer said.“You’re lying to me. Your family says you have it. Where is the gun? Tell me where it is, and we can resolve this right now.”
Right about this time, one has to ask, How did they know he was a gun owner? And why was he stopped in the first place?
The officer called in backup and spent the next two hours searching the Explorer and its contents. Probable cause of what? Legally possessing a firearm?
“All that time, he’s humiliating me in front of my family, making me feel like a criminal,” John Filippidis said.“I’ve never been to prison, never declared bankruptcy, I pay my taxes, support my 20 employees’ families. I’ve never been in any kind of trouble.”
With a sense of frustration, he told The Tribune:“And he wants to put me in jail. He wants to put me in jail. For no reason. He wants to take my wife and children away and put me in jail. In America, how does such a thing happen?… And after all that, he didn’t even write me a ticket.”
This is not the purpose of a firearms permit, to allow authorities to track down and harass citizens, in effect providing an incentive to NOT comply with firearms laws!
this guy's first mistake was answering ANY police questions about his firearms...

his second mistake was being married to a stupid woman...

without her stupidity, he would have a huge lawsuit against the cop...

So, more greenhouse gases don't intensify the greenhouse effect?

There are many factors that go into our climate. Global warming changes our climate.


It doesn't mean its warmer everyday & never gets cold.

And you try to pass yourself off as someone who supposedly took lots of physics courses.

California Drought Emergency Declared By Governor Jerry Brown
""SAN FRANCISCO -- California Gov. Jerry Brown spoke to reporters on Friday morning to declare a drought emergency for the state, which had its driest year in recorded history in 2013.
"Today I'm declaring a drought in the state of California," said Brown. "We're facing perhaps the worst drought California has ever seen since records began being kept about 100 years ago."
Brown's declaration was mostly symbolic. The governor called for a 20 percent voluntary reduction in water use for all citizens "in both rural areas and cities." However, "we're certainly holding out for mandatory conservation," he said.
"There's not a government program that can totally compensate for the lack of rain," he said. "Hopefully it will rain eventually, but in the meantime we all have to do our part."
Brown's decision comes after months of pressure from lawmakers to declare a drought. The official announcement could affect how California's water is distributed and provide the basis for setting formal guidelines for farmers, businesses and residents to cut back.
The governor presented a graph showing the year's dismal precipitation, as well as photos comparing the Sierra Nevada snowpack today versus one year ago.
The culprit of the drought is a massive high-pressure zone off the West Coast that has been blocking Pacific storms for over a year. Eleven states including Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Kansas, Texas, Utah, Arkansas, Hawaii, Idaho, Oklahoma and California have already been designated primary natural disaster areas by federal inspectors due to the drought.
At a press conference earlier this week, Brown signaled the announcement would be coming.
"It's coming within the next few days," he said. "But don't think that a letter from the governor's office is going to affect the rain."""
----------
Tinme for al you Teabaggers to click your heels together, ans sing in unison;
"There is no climate change. There is no climate change. There is no climate change"
(In spite of massive evidence to the contrary!!)
Climates change. No one disputes that. Did I cause California's drought? Not hardly. If you insist on blaming someone for another of California's problems, blame Democrats and illegal aliens, they're responsible for all the others.
