NY: Bloomberg: NYPD stops should be changed, not ended

Mayor Michael Bloomberg stepped into a black church in one of New York's highest-crime neighborhoods to defend the police policy of street stops that has stirred outrage.

He told worshippers at the First Baptist Church of Brownsville that the policy "should be amended, but not ended."

Instead, the mayor said police are being retrained to conduct the stops with what he called "civility."

Bloomberg said the NYPD is working with community groups so they aren't treated in the rough manner Bishop Gerald Seabrooks said sometimes includes slamming young men against walls.

City officials have said the program helps to bring down crime. Critics say it's racial profiling. Most of those stopped are black and Hispanic men.

In Virginia, like most states, adults aged 18 and over may own and openly carry firearms, including handguns, in public without any need to register their guns or obtain a permit to open carry. But in a little noticed attorney general opinion last month, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) issued a formal opinion on concealed carry in which he said that

“provided the handgun is properly secured in a container or compartment within the vehicle, persons who may lawfully possess a firearm but have not been issued a concealed weapons permit may possess, in a vehicle, a handgun that is loaded and the handgun may remain within reach of a driver or passenger under such conditions. It further is my opinion that, . . .

Parents searching for the perfect place and theme for their kids' birthday parties will soon have another option in Texas: a gun range.
Eagle Gun Range in Lewisville, Texas, is due to open later this summer and birthday parties will be available to children age 8 and older. Party-goers will get a 30-minute class in gun safety and handling and then will have the opportunity to shoot either a BB gun or a .22 long rifle. ...
Plenty of staff will be around to help parents supervise. ...
Besides birthday parties, Prince hopes his gun range will attract scout troops, church youth groups and other organizations that want to introduce kids to gun safety and shooting sports.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg took his defense of the police department's "Stop and Frisk" program to one of Brooklyn's highest crime communities on Sunday, championing the program from the pulpit of a black church in Brownsville. ...
After Bloomberg left, the church's 90-year-old pastor, Bishop A.D. Lyons, said he supports efforts to get guns off the streets, but he expressed frustration with what residents say is an unnecessarily aggressive implementation of the stop and frisk program in Brownsville. ...
"I'll agree that a lot of it is blacks carrying guns," Lyons said. "But we've got to respect them, even if they are carrying guns."

"Yesterday afternoon a woman was attacked with a knife and sexually assaulted in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park near Knoxville. Local news* outlets thus far have no information on the attacker, who remains at large as of this writing."

"The Park's Supervising Ranger, Kent Cave, had this to say to WVLT-TV**"
""'It is extremely uncommon. However, it is important to point out bad things can happen in national parks.'" ...

Submitter's Note: I wonder if Kent was one of the rangers opposed to guns in parks?
 

Some Thoughts on Guns and Civil Rights

In the 1960s, 1970s and into the 1980s, gun control was one of the Left’s major priorities. The ultimate objective was to ban the private ownership of handguns, and for quite a while it seemed that the demise of gun ownership was only a matter or time, sort of like gay marriage. The anti-gun mood of that era was reflected in the law, which more or less ignored the 2nd Amendment and gave little protection to the right to keep and bear arms.

It's a good thing that Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll has an open mind about her task force's examination of Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law. There appear to be an awful lot of problems with the state's expansive self-defense statute.

“I think the real strength of the series is in exploring the complex range of emotions and outcomes such a desperate act can evoke,” Barnes said. “Depression. Legal problems. Second-guessing, even when there was no choice. Others seem to have adjusted well. For at least one man, it was life-changing.”

The lawful possession of firearms is one of the most contentious issues in Massachusetts. On the one hand, there are people who equate firearms with weapons and their dangerous nature. On the other hand are people who possess firearms for sport, for hunting and even self-defense. Balancing both view points is the Constitutional Right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Federal Constitution.

Hunters United for Sunday Hunting, which launched May 7, is a volunteer run, nonprofit that's hoping to overturn the Sunday hunting ban by challenging its legality in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

His bill to give licensed firearms dealers the right to display their wares at fund-raising auctions for nonprofit organizations recently won unanimous approval in the full Senate. A companion measure in the Assembly, cosponsored by John Burzichelli (D., Gloucester), is in committee.

Should they become law, the bills would reverse a 2008 ruling that has limited dealers to showing only pictures of firearms at the auctions, which typically benefit groups devoted to hunting and outdoor sports, Norcross said last week.

When you think of guns, there's a good chance the word violence comes to mind - but at the Albany Gun and Knife Show vendors say there is much more to firearms than the bad.

"It isn't the gun that is actually the bad part, it's the person that's actually behind the gun. A gun doesn't just go off, it has to have an operator just like any other machine, anything like that,” said Michael Frazier, who owns a gun shop in Cartersville with his brother.

The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/KgIvqP) Councilman Glenn Green has received approval from the council to use discretionary capital improvement funds to finance the program. No date has been set for the event.

Ed.: Since when is a gun back-buy in the same category as building sidewalks, roads, sewers, and such?

Playing the “clueless” card seems to have become a favored tactic for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

In a testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Holder denied that he had prior knowledge of the of the specific tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious, an illegal gun-running ring carried out by ATF.

The operation was initially designed as an effort to track high-profile Mexican gang leaders by illegally providing them with guns that U.S. agents could trace.

Two Australian swimmers who posed for photographs brandishing guns had handled the weapons aggressively and dangerously and deserved to be reprimanded for their actions, according to Olympic shooter Russell Mark.

But Mark said "bad boys" Nick D'Arcy and Kenrick Monk did not deserve to be banned from competing at the London Games despite posting images of themselves on social media sites holding the weapons at a US gun shop, sparking uproar about the appropriateness of their actions.

Compete with pink nail polish, and pink ear muffs, little Hailey Lockridge is more than ready to shoot a rifle that is almost as tall as she is.

Hailey says, "I was excited because it was my first time."

But her dad says the only reason she has been given this privilege, along with her sister Belle, is because everyone has been trained on how to handle the gun first.

A Queens Democratic state senator took a shot at the chamber’s GOP majority for holding up a “common-sense” bill to take permitted firearms away from the mentally ill.

Jose Peralta’s bill would give judges the power to strip people of their guns and permits to possess them if they are involuntarily committed to an institution, forced into outpatient treatment or acquitted of a crime by “reason of mental disease or defect.”
