 has a great item here, she writes: The recent news of Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers stopping a terrorist at the Canadian Parliament is a much-needed reminder that the best defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Breitbart.com reported:

Vickers’ role as Sergeant-at-Arms is largely ceremonial. However, he is a 29-year veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, according to the National Post, and his training and experience appear to have come into play exactly when they were needed…(read more)

[VIDEO] Base Jumper Who Illegally Plunged 436 Meters From a Whistler Blackcomb Gondola Facing Criminal Charges

base-jumper-gondolaAileen Donnelly reports:  An Ontario man is facing mischief charges after police say he illegally BASE jumped from a gondola swinging 436 metres above the ground in Whistler, B.C.

He and his friend allegedly pried open the doors of a Peak 2 Peak Gondola that connects Whistler and Blackcomb mountains so he could leap from the cabin on Feb. 6. A video posted on Tuesday documented the dangerous stunt that caused an estimated $10,000 in damage to the doors and locking mechanisms.

base-jumper1Police arrested the alleged accomplice at her workplace in Whistler at about 3 p.m. Wednesday. She was released on a promise to appear in court on April 2 and the RCMP plans to charge the 23-year-old with obstruction and mischief over $5,000 at that time, Staff Sgt. Steve LeClair said. Police are still searching for the BASE jumper whose face is shown at the end of the video.

One of the Whistler Blackcomb resort’s ski patrollers spotted him shortly after he landed safely in a patch of snow, but he ducked into the woods as the RCMP chased him. Police used a sniffer dog to search the forest for an hour-and-a-half, but the trail eventually went cold, Sgt. LeClair said.

Richard Whittle writes: It’s a quiet morning in San Francisco, with soft sunlight illuminating patches of thick fog billowing over the Golden Gate Bridge. A solitary unmanned aircraft—a 4-pound, battery-powered wedge of impact-resistant foam with a 54-inch wingspan, a single pusher-propeller in the rear, and a GoPro video camera attached to its body—quietly approaches the landmark.

Raphael “Trappy” Pirker controls the aircraft from a nearby hill. The bridge is within sight, but the 29-year-old enjoys the scenery through virtual-reality goggles strapped to his head. The drone’s-eye view is broadcast to the goggles, giving Pirker a streaming image of the bridge that grows larger as he guides the radio-controlled aircraft closer. Read the rest of this entry »
