Keeping Communities Safe From Sex Offenders

Sexual crimes – such as sexual abuse, rape, indecent exposure, child molestation, sexual harassment and other related crimes – are particularly appalling. Sex offenders and sexual predators often commit their crimes against acquaintances, but often the victims are strangers or even family members. These criminals are much less likely to become repeat-offenders thanks to the sex offender registry – which keeps communities safer.

In some cases, sexual assaults may be facilitated through alcohol or illegal drugs such as Rohypnol, commonly known as the “date rape” drug. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, Rohypnol is not approved in the United States for medical use and it causes drowsiness, amnesia, and confusion for the victim who unknowingly ingests it.

Sex Offenders Versus Sexual Predators 

Once someone is convicted of a sexual crime, they are likely to be either a sex offender or sexual predator. Either way, they’ll end up on a sex offender registry. But what differentiates a sex offender from a sexual predator?  

Someone designated as a sexual predator is typically convicted of a violent sex crime. For instance, that criminal may be convicted of a first-degree felony associated with sexual misconduct or two second-degree felonies associated with sexual misconduct.  

Someone designated as a sex offender, however, is usually convicted of a less serious crime associated with sexual misconduct. For example, a sexual predator may be convicted of sexual battery by using force and injuring a victim under the age of 12, but a sex offender may be a criminal convicted of soliciting prostitution or indecent exposure.  

Megan’s Law Was Inspired by the Need to Know about Dangerous Predators in Communities

Despite there being a sex offender registry in place, seven-year-old Megan Kanka from New Jersey died in 1994 after being raped and murdered by a registered sex offender who lived across the street. Megan’s family was not aware of the sex offender in their community, and her death inspired Megan’s Law, which was one of the first laws that required sex offenders to be in a public registry. 

Megan’s Law was one of several laws Congress passed to implement sex offender and crimes against children registries. Other legislation includes:

Other Sex Offender Registries 

Federal law now requires information about sexually violent offenders to be available to the public. In addition, states offer databases of registered sex offenders and predators that the public can check to determine if a sex offender or predator is registered in their vicinity. Sex offenders and predators are required to provide their current address for the registry, and there are serious consequences for failing to register.

Similarly, sex offenders and sexual predators in Florida are required to maintain registration for the duration of their lives. The Department of Justice operates a National Sex Offender Public Website that enables users to search for sex offenders and predators, either by name or within a radius of a specific address.  

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement operates a similar offender or neighborhood database. This database provides a lot of information on registered sex offenders that include the offender’s:

  •  Name
  •  Address
  •  The charges for which the offender received a conviction 
  •  The status of the offender (sex offender or sexual predator)  
  •  Photograph
  •  Vehicle information

This Florida database also offers a list of local sex offenders and predators who have failed to register.

Sex Offenders: An Up-To-Date Registry Peace of Mind for Everyone 

Having access to an up-to-date sex offender registry about the location of sex offenders and predators is essential for community safety. For parents with children or females who live alone, it is advantageous to know who in their community could be a potential threat in the future.

Due to the heinous nature of sex crimes, most people commonly agreed that convicts have lost their right to privacy because there have been many cases like Megan Kanka’s where a sex offender or predator committed a new sexual offense. Having knowledge of those people who are a risk to the community due to their past conduct can significantly increase community safety.

2A UNDER ATTACK! Credit Card Company To Start Tracking Gun Sales

2A UNDER ATTACK! Credit Card Company To Start Tracking Gun Sales

( – Discover will be the first credit card company to track gun transactions made by its customers starting in April 2023.

On September 11, 2022, Breitbart News reported Visa gave in to pressure from groups that want stricter gun laws and New York Democrats and agreed to use a new sales classification system to find transactions involving guns and ammunition.

According to the Associated Press, MasterCard and other significant credit companies have also agreed to alert authorities to gun transactions.

The Independent Journal Review (IJR) wrote an article on March 2, 2023, that said Discover will be the first credit card company to track gun purchases, starting in April.

IJR stated, “Starting in April, anyone using a Discover card to make a transaction in a gun store will have that purchase recorded.”

According to reports, Discover cards are used by more than 55 million people, so just one business has a lot of information about gun transactions.

Reuters says that Discover Financial Services was the first of its competitors to make a public announcement about when the initiative.

This is meant to help police investigate gun-related crimes, will start in February 2023.

Discover would “allow its network to track purchases at gun retailers come April,” making it the first among its peers.

According to Discover,

“We remain committed on maintaining our commitment to preserving and supporting legal purchases on our network while protecting cardholder privacy.”

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) authorized the code in September 2022.

A spokesman for the ISO said, “Users in the industry will decide whether or not to use the new merchant category code.”

Evacuation Planning for Families

Emergencies can be highly unpredictable. You could be well-prepared for a crisis, but if there’s an earthquake and the house comes crumbling down… whatever food and water supplies you’ve stored will be destroyed.

Evacuation Planning for Families

Emergencies can be highly unpredictable. You could be well-prepared for a crisis, but if there’s an earthquake and the house comes crumbling down… whatever food and water supplies you’ve stored will be destroyed. The structural integrity of the house will be compromised, and you’ll not be able to stay there, you’ll have no choice but to evacuate. Based on this scenario, every prepper needs to have an evacuation plan. This article will give you a few points to bear in mind when formulating your plan.

  • Proximity
    During a catastrophe, roads may be impassable. The area could be flooded. Your car may be damaged, etc. How close will your shelter be?
    Do you have family, friends or even neighbors who are nearby and could take you in? Is it within walking distance or will you need a vehicle to get there?
  • Is your family aware?
    A plan is only good when everyone is onboard and knows what’s going on. What if your spouse is at work? If the kids are at a friend’s house, do they know what to do? Will everyone meet at home and evacuate, or will they meet you at the secondary location?
    During a crisis, there’s often little time to think. Contacting your family members may not be possible if they don’t have access to a phone. Any of these scenarios could happen, and they usually do. So, stay prepared and rehearse well.
  • Be detailed
    Ensure that all family members from the children to the adults have a laminated card with a list of all the family members and their contact information. If anyone is alone and injured, first responders will know how to reach the next of kin.
    If there’s panic and everyone is scrambling for their lives, as would happen in a tsunami, you may lose sight of a family member or two when the situation is chaotic. With these details, there’s a much higher chance of finding them sooner and getting to a safe place as a family as soon as possible.
  • Communication
    During a crisis there must be a plan of communication. If everyone is calling the same person for information, calls may not go through or be delayed. One way to do it if you have children, will be for one or two children to call the mother while another child calls the father.
    If calls don’t work, ask them to try texting. It will be good to have codes that everyone remembers so that you do not have to send long texts to get your message across.
  • Kits
    It goes without saying that every family member needs a bug out bag or a grab bag that they can grab and go in an emergency. The grab bag will contain supplies such as food, water and other items that will help you get through the next 72-hours without much hassle.
  • Pets
    If you have pets, you will need to evacuate them too. While you can’t move an aquarium, you can save your cat, dog, hamster or rabbit away from danger. You’ll need food supplies for them in your grab bag, and a portable carrier to transport the pet.
    It’s good to bring a tent or small shelter for them to stay warm and dry in. Evacuation shelters may not allow pets. If you must leave them outside, they’ll be sheltered, and you can still check on them at regular intervals.

Observe these tips when creating your evacuation plan. It’s imperative that you have a good plan and a good support network. Get to know the people around your neighborhood well. These are the people who will most likely be able to help you in an emergency, and vice-versa. No man is an island.
