Obama admits US gun laws are his 'biggest frustration'
Submitted by: Anonymous

President Barack Obama has admitted that his failure to pass "common sense gun safety laws" in the US is the greatest frustration of his presidency.
In an interview with the BBC, Mr Obama said it was "distressing" not to have made progress on the issue "even in the face of repeated mass killings".
He vowed to keep trying, but the BBC's North America editor Jon Sopel said the president did not sound very confident.

SUBMITTER'S COMMENT: This is the best example I've seen lately of how little this guy understands the American people.
And by the way, since when do presidents pass laws?

A former sheriff’s deputy has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of providing false information to a magistrate judge in order to obtain no-knock warrants that led to a near fatal SWAT raid.
The Habersham County, Georgia Sheriff’s Office conducted the raid on a house in Cornelia where a 18-month-old boy was severely burned by a flashbang grenade thrown into his playpen, leaving him with severe burns on his face and chest that required months of painful surgeries.
Nikki Autry, 29, of Clarkesville, Georgia, was acting as part of the sheriff’s office and the Mountain Judicial Circuit Criminal Investigation and Suppression Team on May 27, 2014, at 3 a.m. when the units conducted the raid.

The Justice Department is reportedly considering launching a civil rights investigation against a Florida gun store owner who wants to ban Muslims from his shop.
According to several reports, Islamic advocacy groups have asked the Feds to look into Florida Gun Supply after owner Andy Hallinan posted a video on his company’s Facebook page declaring his business a “Muslim-free zone.” The announcement— which gained national attention — comes less than a week after Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez allegedly shot and killed five at military recruiting stations in Tennessee.

An 18-year-old Clinton man was told by a college professor that the flying drone that fired a handgun, now seen by millions in an online video, was a "terrible idea."
Edward Moore, a CCSU assistant professor, told the Courant that Austin Haughwout was taking a class with him this summer when the student talked about his gun-firing drone and his video that had gone viral.
The 14-second long video posted to YouTube shows a drone hovering off the ground firing four rounds from a pistol. As of Wednesday afternoon, the video had been viewed more than 2 million times.
Moore said he provided no help to Haughwout on the project and told him immediately that it was "a terrible idea."

NY: NYPD cops under investigation for allegedly beating a suspected pizza thief had two days left in probationary period

The NYPD cops under investigation for allegedly beating a surrendering suspect were rookies with two days remaining in their probationary period at the time of the incident, the Daily News has learned.
Officers Pearce Martinez and Lenny Lutchman remained on full duty status Wednesday, but if Brooklyn prosecutors or Internal Affairs Bureau investigators determine the cops used excessive force against Thomas Jennings, they could be fired.

Martinez and Lutchman were both hired on July 9, 2013 and the violent confrontation occurred on July 7, 2015.

There is a two-year probationary period for all NYPD cops. During that time rookies have less job protection and can be fired for virtually any misconduct.

Should Timothy White Be Prosecuted For Firing Back At The Chattanooga Shooter?

Believe it or not, this presents a problem for liberals and anti-self-defense types. Because of the massive spotlight surrounding this shooting, if they choose to prosecute Lt. Cmdr. White they risk severe public backlash as the veil is torn off to reveal the insidious evil behind this and every other policy that prevents Americans from exercising their right to bear arms and defend themselves. However, if they let this one “pass” in spite of the clearly stated policy, they will create a path for others to disregard it.

It seems that, by pulling his weapon, Lt. Cmdr. White put himself at risk in more ways than one.

The statewide chapter of the National Rifle Association wants to look into the dangers of “gun-free zones” and whether people should be allowed to carry guns, knives or even pepper spray in these areas.

The bill was filed by Westfield Democrat John Velis. It would set up a state commission that would study “gun-free zones” where law-abiding citizens are prohibited from carrying a gun.
 

LA: Lafayette Theater Is a Gun Free Zone, Bans Firearms for Customers with 'Permits'

The Lafayette, Louisiana, Grand Theatre–site of the tragic July 23 attack in which a gunman killed two, wounded at least seven others, then took his own life–is a gun free zone.

The movie theater chain does not even allow law-abiding citizens with concealed carry permits to carry for self-defense.

According to the “Conduct Policy” for all Grand Theatre locations, the “possession of firearms or weapons of any kind” are completely banned and the ban applies regardless of whether the firearm or weapon is carried “openly or concealed, with or without a permit.”
 

No Support For Military Right-To-Carry From Obama, Everytown, And Odierno

We have come to expect such as this from Obama. However, we expect better from the Army Chief of Staff, even one that Obama hand-picked for the job. On Friday, July 17, USNews.com reported that Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno appeared to oppose allowing military personnel to be armed, saying “we have to be careful about over-arming ourselves,” because of the possibility of “accidental discharges and everything else that goes along with having weapons that are loaded that causes injuries.”

Now and then it’s worth taking a deep breath and asking those who want to force us to be defenseless victims what their agenda really is. So I recently called U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., since she has proposed several measures in Congress lately that would punish you financially for being a gun owner, that would ban your guns and that would make you somehow—no one knows how—install not-yet-invented “smart-gun” technology into your handguns.

The phone rang in her Capitol Hill office. A congressional aide answered and referred me to Maloney’s press secretary, Mike Morosi—who never responded to my interview request.

All is not well. 34 people have died and another 54 have been shot, and the decision of this Marine, like the decision of Navy Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White and one of the Marines who died in Chattanooga is to take a chance, and violate regulations because the military refuses to concede that our troops are targets.

Arizona's National Guardsmen will now be allowed to carry guns for self-defense while on duty.

That is because Gov. Doug Ducey signed an executive order Wednesday, allowing them to do so.

It comes as fears grow of a repeat attack similar to the Chattanooga Tennessee rampage that killed five service members.

The order references the attack as well as the shooting from 2009 on Fort Hood that resulted in the deaths of 13 and left dozens wounded, as reasons for the order.

Memphis Police say a man was walking up to Lamar Corner Grocery when a man tried to rob him. The victim shot and killed the suspect.

When it comes to a case of self-defense, you have to think fast.

"When your life is threatened I think everybody would agree that is your first priority is to protect your life," Tom Henderson said.

Henderson is an Assistant District Attorney in Shelby County. He told FOX13 the District Attorney’s office is familiar with self-defense cases. People fight back against criminals who are attacking them.

The ATF’s annual firearms commerce report tracks the number of guns manufactured in the United States, which provides an indication of gun sales around the country.

The number of guns manufactured increased by 18 percent during the George W. Bush administration, while the Clinton administration actually saw a 9 percent reduction.

But under President Obama, gun production has spiked 140 percent to 10.8 million firearms in 2013, the most recent year for which data is available.

The year before President Obama entered office, gun manufacturers produced about 4.5 million firearms.

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, introduced legislation on Tuesday that would end firearm restrictions on service members while at military bases.

The Armed Forces Self-Defense Act would allow military and other certified personnel to carry personal firearms while on military property, which includes recruitment offices and reserve centers. It also would stipulate that Department of Defense personnel should be appropriately armed and that they have the inherent right to self-defense.

If there is one positive result of the terrorist wannabe attack that took the lives of four Marines and a Navy petty officer one week ago today in Chattanooga, it is Tuesday’s introduction of legislation by Kansas Republican Sen. Jerry Moran that would repeal bans on military personnel being armed at military installations.

But Moran’s proposal could go farther, as Second Amendment activists could easily argue. Gun-free zones, as the Federalist observed two days ago, are a “ridiculous policy.”

The chilling story of Neal Falls, an Oregon man who told a Charleston woman to “live or die” before clasping his bare hands around her neck in an attempt to kill her, is allowing similar cases across the United States to emerge.

“We had one arise within hours of the Fox News broadcast,” said Charleston Chief of Detectives Lt. Steve Cooper on Thursday’s MetroNews “Talkline” about a case that was traced to the western part of the country. “It won’t surprise me if there are more.”

Two of the country’s most influential gun rights organizations have plans to thwart the Obama administration from implementing any new, sweeping gun control measures.

On Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the Obama administration would soon push to implement a new gun control measure, one that aims to ban those on Social Security who lack the mental capacity to “manage their own affairs” from owning firearms.

According to the Washington Free Beacon, both the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) plan to fight that new measure from taking effect.

More seniors are taking an interest in guns these days, according to the owner of a gun range in Westfield.

Tim Tomich of Tim’s Shooting Academy said he has noticed a rise in older customers recently as the demographic for gun buyers continues to change.

Indiana State Police records show an upward trend in gun permits. More than half a million Hoosiers have a license to carry.

The Violence Policy Center recently came out with another of its infamous “studies,” this time allegedly “proving”—by comparing criminal homicides to justifiable homicides—that guns do more harm than good. And again, the group’s so-called “research” falls short.

It’s no secret why the VPC uses justifiable homicides in their numbers, as most defensive gun uses don’t involve an attacker/criminal being killed, rendering the entire premise of the study meaningless. And while not a scientific survey, we can easily prove that point anecdotally.
