Classes at P.S. 298 had just let out on a beautiful Friday afternoon in Brooklyn. Mothers and fathers lined up to pick up their children from the school just like any other day. But this would be the last day that Zurana Horton would pick up her children after a senseless, random act of gun violence tragically took her life. Zurana Horton was killed while covering and protecting her own children as bullets began to fly. Now 13 children are left without a loving, heroic mother who did everything in her power to keep them safe and the murderer remains free to continue to wreak havoc on the community.

Plaxico Burress hopes he's as big a hit off the field as he was in Sunday's game when he speaks out tonight against guns. The Jets wide receiver, who caught three touchdown passes in the 27-21 victory over the Chargers, will make his speaking debut as an ambassador for the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. "I just want to use what happened to me to serve a higher purpose, instead of just walking away from it," said Burress of the 22 months he spent in prison for accidentally shooting himself with the illegal gun he was toting. "To confront it head-on, and let people know what's going on."
 

NY: Narcotics cops showered junkie with crack and forced her to perform sex acts in return: testimony

NYPD narcs showered a junkie with crack and forced her to perform sex acts in return, she testified in the latest embarrassing revelation to emerge from a police corruption trial.

In one incident, Melanie Perez recalled on the stand last week, a cop called her to his home, made her smoke drugs then pulled down his pants and demanded oral sex.

"What was I going to do?" she testified in Brooklyn Supreme Court. "I did it."

The damning account came during the bench trial of Jason Arbeeny, one of eight undercovers charged in a scandal that rocked the Brooklyn South Narcotics squad.

Bullets are flying over Broadway -- and everywhere else in the city.
The number of people shot surged 154 percent two weeks ago -- to 56 from 22 over the same week last year -- and spiked 28 percent in the last month.
Last week tallied another increase in victims -- 22 people had been hit through Friday, including the three victims gunned down outside a Brooklyn school Friday.
Last year, only 17 shooting victims were logged for the entire week.
The recent gunplay has now pushed the number of shooting victims this year slightly above last year’s tragic tally -- to 1,484 from 1,451 -- through Oct. 16.

My family found out about the sketch thanks to readers who e-mailed me a link to a local WA state website report late Thursday night. Her parents received no notification, no courtesy call, from the SPD missing persons bureau detective assigned to Marizela’s case. In fact, we have yet to hear from him. As has happened on more than one occasion over the last 7 months, he was...unavailable. He has yet to return several e-mail..& phone calls

Sheriff...KCME's office, by contrast, were amazingly responsive & helpful. I found out they have tried for weeks to obtain Marizela’s dental records & DNA from the SPD...the police have yet to provide them or the WSP with the info

Global gun control law pushed by Clinton

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is pushing for the United States to become a party to a global gun control law proposed by the United Nations. And President Barack Obama appears to be sympathetic to such an international power-grab and he's already displayed a propensity for bypassing the legislative process.

In fact, many believe the recent "Operation Fast and Furious" scandal had more to do with gaining support for gun control and gun ownership bans than it had to do with crimefighting and drug cartels.

"The Obama Administration will take its first major step in a plan to ban all firearms in the United States. The Obama White House intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signin
 

OR: Attorney for Portland Officer Dane Reister says shooting resulted from police bureau's 'gross negligence'

The attorney for Portland Police Officer Dane Reister doesn't dispute that her client mistakenly loaded his beanbag shotgun with lethal rounds and seriously wounded a man in Southwest Portland June 30.

But Reister's lawyer, Janet Hoffman, plans to argue in court next week that the officer's mistake resulted from the Portland Police Bureau's "gross negligence" and "woefully inadequate" practices and policies surrounding officers' handling of less-lethal firearms and ammunition.

Hoffman said she'll offer expert testimony to demonstrate that Reister's error was "directly caused by the PPB's failure to design and implement a system for training, storage, handling and loading of less lethal weapons and ammunition that meets basic s

Multnomah County's presiding judge this morning ruled that the grand jury reviewing Portland Officer Dane Reister's June 30 shooting of a man in Southwest Portland can consider Reister's prior firearms mistake but not the "negligent wounding" statute.

Reister, who mistakenly fired lethal rounds from a beanbag shotgun and wounded a man in June, had five years earlier mistakenly fired a loaded riot-suppression launcher during training, striking an officer, who was posing as a protester, with a smoke round.

The grand jury review in Reister's June shooting of William Kyle Monroe, now 21, began last week and is expected to last through early November.

But let's suppose for the moment that there is this "conduit" of illegal gun traffic, as Police Chief Mike McGrath put it in an earlier article. Gun shows are a public event, held at well-advertised times and dates. Local police provide security for these shows. If there are crimes going on, where is law enforcement? The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and police task forces are all negligent and incompetent if crimes are being committed and they do nothing.

Staff Sargent Daniel Horner of the US Army’s Marksmanship Unit used the new 300 AAC Blackout cartridge to win 1st overall in the Tactical Optics division of the 2011 USPSA Multigun National Championship, held outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.

300 AAC Blackout was launched by Advanced Armament Corp. and Remington primarily for the military as a way to shoot 30 caliber bullets from the M4/AR15 platform while using standard magazines, but is expected to see a lot of use for hunting, plinking, and home defense as well.

A tempest erupted when the Bellevue-based Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms uncovered a copy of Kennedy’s remarks via a website sponsored by Reaching Critical Will, which is more normally associated with nuclear proliferation and military armament concerns.

On October 3rd, Florida Carry, Inc. filed a lawsuit against the University of North Florida (UNF) to end their unlawful ban on firearms and other defensive weapons in student’s vehicles.

Since 1987 the Florida Legislature has preempted firearms law and issued statewide licenses to carry for self-defense.

Since 1982 it has been legal for law abiding adults to keep a handgun in their glove-box or closed console without any licensing requirements.

Chris W. Cox, the N.R.A.’s chief lobbyist, recently wrote that the current situation “presents a nightmare for interstate travel, as many Americans are forced to check their Second Amendment rights, and their fundamental right to self-defense, at the state line.”

Nightmare? I think that term better applies to the N.R.A., though it’s not the first word that springs to mind when I mull its current effort.

Contradiction, hypocrisy: those words rush in ahead. The bill thus far has more than 200 Republican co-sponsors in the House, many of them conservatives who otherwise complain about attempts by an overbearing federal government to trample on states’ rights in the realms of health care, tort reform, education — you name it.

Dave Workman, the senior editor of Gun Week, which is owned by the gun rights group Second Amendment Foundation, disagrees with Schneiderman's opposition to the legislation, saying that the proposed federal bill is intended simply to protect the rights of Americans to bear firearms.

"This legislation is aimed at providing a mechanism for legally armed private citizens to carry their legal firearms across jurisdictional boundaries," Workman said. "That's what this measure is all about," he said.

A small group of people carrying big guns gathered Saturday in this Bay Area suburb for an event blending political theater, self-promotion and freshly brewed concerns about constitutional rights.

The intent was to raise awareness of the legal right of Californians to carry unloaded rifles and shotguns in public. The venue was a corner of a shopping-mall parking lot. And while mall management roped off 165 spaces to accommodate the rally, no more than 30 opponents of gun-control laws stopped by the midday event.

It has been an extremely busy week for the NJ2AS. Our new video, “Saga of Firearms Ownership in New Jersey”, has created quite a “buzz”.

It has been picked up by everyone from the NRA to local blog sites across the country. The message it sends is clear, concise and clever. Even people who are not currently firearms owners view it and recognize the danger inherent in treating law-abiding citizens as if they were criminals.

Northrup said the consequences of shooting others, even justifiably, are far-reaching.

If you don't kill them, you could end up crippling them for life, he said. Although the shooter may not end up facing criminal charges, a suspect's family can sue. Then there are the psychological consequences of living the rest of your life knowing you took a life, something many struggle to overcome.

The U.S. government unconstitutionally prohibits people who hold state-issued medical marijuana cards from buying guns, says a medical technician who was not allowed to buy a gun for self-defense.
S. Rowan Wilson sued the U.S. attorney general and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Federal Court, challenging Section 922(g)(3) of the federal criminal code, which "prohibits law-abiding adults who have obtained medical marijuana cards pursuant to state law from lawfully purchasing what the Supreme Court has called 'the quintessential self-defense weapon' and 'the most popular weapon chosen by Americans for self-defense in the home,'" (citing District of Columbia v Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 128 S.

The Taiwan Defensive Firearms Association (TDFA) earlier this month became a member of the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR), a global gun rights association working to protect and expand the ability to keep and bear arms around the globe.

In a press release, IAPCAR said the TDFA was joining 16 other groups from nine countries on five continents that represent millions of firearm owners and citizens concerned about civilian gun rights.

“The IAPCAR coalition defending gun rights worldwide continues to grow and we are proud to have Taiwan join with us,” IAPCAR executive director Philip Watson is quoted as saying.

A city council member wants Wichita to fall in line with Sedgwick County and allow people with permits to carry handguns into some buildings.

Currently, people with a license to carry concealed handguns cannot take them into any city building.

"It's just crazy," council member Michael O'Donnell said. "We've lost touch with reality. I'm just trying to bring a dose of reality to the city council to allow guns for people who have already been permitted to have them."
 

WI: With concealed carry, adequate screening important

The concealed carry law is not as important as some may think because if someone really wanted to carry a weapon, they would. I think because of this law, which goes into effect Nov. 1, more people will be carrying weapons just because they assume other people are carrying them.

After Nov. 1, public safety will only be an issue if we don’t have proper screening for the license to carry. Otherwise it will probably be the same as it is now involving concealed weapons.
