City officials say they will form a special police unit and buy back guns in the city as part of a broader effort to tamp down rising violent crime.

Mayor Sheldon Neeley announced the plan in a news conference Tuesday, July 21, less than 24 hours after a man in his 20s was shot and killed on Clement Street -- the 28th homicide in Flint this year.

“We are at the intersection of a crisis ... As you watch the number grow in violent crime in our community, we have to do more than our best ...,” Neeley said. “It’s a very trying time.”

Dates and times of the buy-back program will be announced at a later time, Hart said.

Senator Gary Peters joined former congresswoman Gabby Giffords on her tour of gun safety.

Peters is calling for a universal background check on every gun owner and anyone who purchases a gun.

The senator says he is a gun owner and recognizes everyone right to bare arms but says this background check will help stop violence.

"Where these checks are in place it prevents these senseless, needless tragedies from occurring and I believe this has to be a bipartisan issue this is not a partisan issue, this is not a blue issue or a red issue this is about us coming together in a bipartisan way," Peters said.

According to Gabby Giffords eight and ten Michigan voters support universal background checks.

A retired police detective is charged with assault for shooting his adult son in the stomach during a dispute in Macomb Township in May.

Michael Szymanski, 56, a former Hamtramck police officer, was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder or strangulation in 41A District Court in Shelby Township, according to the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.

Szymanski is accused of wounding his son, Steven, in the early morning hours of May 24 at a Macomb Township residence.

Szymanski was released on a $100,000 personal bond and is scheduled to return to court Aug. 4.

He specifically expressed concerns about HB 961, which proposed prohibiting the sale and transfer of assault weapons. That bill was continued to the 2021 session.

In preparation for its potential passage, the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office started the process this week of recruiting current and former law enforcement officers to volunteer as background investigators to screen potential Reserve Deputy applicants.

The department is not currently accepting Reserve Deputy applications, but is preparing for that possibility depending on the passage of certain gun bills.

On Tuesday morning, a Denver police union official called me to apologize for the department’s failure to protect those of us who tried to speak on their behalf. The “backlash” for defending our constitutional rights was too high a price to pay, he told me. Sorry.

So the message is loud and clear. When push comes to bloody shove in end-stage America, under the rule of the anarcho-tyrants, we, the law-abiding, are the enemy. Those in uniform sworn to protect and serve will turn their backs on us because their bosses don’t answer to the public. They protect and serve the mob.

In the current, racially charged political environment, whites have only two bad options when faced with violence: submit to their aggressors or risk jail after defending themselves.

Consider just two among many recent episodes: the McCloskey’s and the Wuestenberg’s.

"They're simply doing what every American has the right to do. If the Framers of our Constitution had been told that under the Second Amendment, you can prosecute somebody for standing in front of his own home and trying to prevent potential rioters and violence-doers from coming onto their home and endangering their lives or their safety, the Framers would have said that's not what we had in mind under either the First Amendment or the Second Amendment," Dershowitz said.

Maxwell and her “comrades” are part of the mid-Missouri chapter of the John Brown Gun Club, an armed, left-leaning social justice group based in Columbia. Much like its namesake abolitionist from the Civil War era, the group advocates for racial equity, among other issues such as the Second Amendment and LGBTQ+ rights.

While it is attracting growing interest from younger activists in the community, groups like the John Brown Gun Club have been advocating for the abolition of police and other forms of systemic injustice since its inception. Unlike most left-leaning groups, though, gun ownership is central to its strategy.

The Stand Your Ground motion, however, alleges that Coley attacked Robbins “in his own car, in his own driveway, at his own home on the night of April 28, 2019, after a longstanding campaign of threats and violence toward Mr. Robbins.”

In Florida, the burden of proof is on the state to present “clear and convincing evidence to overcome the self-defense claim.”

One of the most basic necessities people cling to is safety. In this time of uncertainty, people feel that could be in question, so some are turning to firearms to reassure themselves.

In late February, just before COVID-19 took off in the U.S. and recent protests and civil unrest, guns and ammunition are flying off store shelves. Consequently, that created a shortage of some items forcing gun shop owners to put a limit on how much a person can buy.

Two Virginia Democrats want to make the recent gun-control laws adopted by the Virginia General Assembly a national law.

U.S. Senator Mark Warner, D-Va., and U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, D-Va., said Wednesday that they plan to introduce in the U.S. Senate the Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020, a bill to federally enact a series of gun violence prevention measures that were backed on the state level by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and majority Democrats in Richmond.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
