Pakistani Activist Kareem Khan claims he was kidnapped from his home on Feb. 5th and tortured while being interrogated, later he would be blindfolded and released on the outskirts of the Capital of Pakistan. Khan's lawyer told reporters "he was blindfolded and interrogated in two different locations and in both locations he was tied up and beaten on the soles of his feet. " He also added "at first his interrogators wore police uniforms and later civilian clothes."

"He was told not to go near media when he was released. If you speak with media, they said, we will come back for you." said Khan's Lawyer.

Khan became an activist after his brother and son were both killed in a drone strike in 2009. Khan also filed a lawsuit against the CIA and the Pakistani Government over the deaths in Pakistani court.

"The United States prizes drones for their accuracy in killing al-Qaida and Taliban militants and says they cause minimal civilian casualties." Reported Katharine Houreld from Reuters.

Drone strikes have become a sore spot in relations between the USA and Pakistan. Every year civilians are killed and the outcry from the public grows, yet it seems they will continue.

Below is the rough estimate from U.S. government sources on casualties from drone strikes.

Guns: AK-47
Good Info. Enjoy.

Jan 1,  2014, tens of thousands of patriotic gun owners made the pro-freedom choice not to register their semi-automatic rifles with the state of Connecticut as required by a rushed law passed in the wake of the school shooting.

Police have recieved 47,916 applications for "assault weapons certificates" and 21,000 incomplete applications as of Dec. 31. Lt.Paul Vince told The Courant.

With only 50,000 applications, roughly 15% of covered semi-automatic rifles have been registered with state. “No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps as high as 350,000,” the report states."

With the new gun-control law that passed in April, it seems 20,000 upto 100,000 people are now in direct violation of the new law that carries a Class D felony.

Mike Lawlor, “the state’s top official in criminal justice,” suggested maybe the firearms unit in Connecticut could “sent them a letter.” However, he said an aggressive push to prosecute gun owners in the state is not going to happen at this point. -theblaze.com 

DHS is set to purchase another 22.7 million dollars worth of ammo, according to a Government Accountability Office report.

DHS has over 70,000 armed personal and the ammo purchases they claim go to firearm training and qualification requirements. So that means 300 rounds of ammo per armed personal for this year alone for training?

DHS components maintain inventories of ammunition to help ensure they have sufficient ammunition for the training and operational needs of their officers, as there can be months-long delays between placing an order for ammunition and receiving it,” GAO reports. “As of October 2013, DHS estimates it had approximately 159 million rounds in inventory, enough to last about 22 months to meet the training and operational needs of its firearm-carrying personnel.” -thedailycaller.com

So they use hollow point ammo for target pratice? That's strange. In firearm training in the military we only used full metal jacketed rounds and we would commonly hear about how budgets were tight and we needed to make every round count. Heck, we couldn't afford to shoot hollow points if we wanted too.

It seems DHS is the new federal police/standing army in the country and we should all be very weary about it.
