At the sprawling Edenwald Houses, the largest housing project in the Bronx, memorials to the victims of gang violence are common. ...
There might have been a few more memorials had Antonio Lyles, a 17 -year-old from a rival apartment complex, struck any of his presumed targets.
On Monday afternoon, Mr. Lyles opened fire with a .32 caliber semiautomatic pistol on a group of young men standing in front of a building in the Edenwald project, the police said. When he failed to hit anyone, and perhaps ran out of bullets, witnesses and the police said, his targets gave chase.
What followed, the police said, was an immediate act of retribution that, in a neighborhood known for gun violence, was unusual in its sustained brutality.

PA: Cops still searching for own guns

POLICE Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey yesterday replaced the head of the department's firearms-training unit.

The command switch comes four months after the commissioner asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate after a regularly scheduled audit of 1,356 Colt M-16 rifles in a vault at the academy revealed that one of the weapons was missing.

"Right now, we have 12 guns that we still need to locate, but we have more than 100 officers that we've not yet checked with," Ramsey said.

Submitters note: These are full automatic M-16s. Not the semi-automatic rifles that get the gun grabbers in a tizzy.

A recently decided case in Fayette County Court regarding what was termed by both the prosecution and defense as a “road rage” incident may be the first in Pennsylvania to use “stand your ground” legislation to successfully argue self-defense.

“We’re not aware of any cases like ours in Pennsylvania,” said Jack Purcell, one of the attorneys who defended Ralph Ore Fisher, 23, of Uniontown. Ore was acquitted of attempted homicide, aggravated assault and related charges during the August criminal court term.

When University of Maryland at Eastern Shore faculty return to campus this fall, they’ll find a new tool in their teaching arsenal. Each classroom will be equipped with a new whiteboard, measuring 18 by 20 inches and weighing a little less than four pounds. They come in snazzy colors like pink, blue and green.

Oh, and they’re bulletproof. Couldn’t hurt, right?

When my website Twitchy.com supported parents who teach their daughters to shoot and published photos of their trips to the gun range, Simmons deemed it "shocking" and insinuated that parents like me who school our girls in self-defense are irresponsible.

Simmons pontificated: "this morning i meditated with my beautiful daughters. shocking that these parents let their kids do this ..."
 

Guam: Ex-Army Ranger: CNMI laws on handguns unconstitutional

A former U.S. Army Ranger who is now an educator has agreed with a lawyer that the CNMI Weapons Act is unconstitutional and should be repealed or made moot.

Paul Aguon Murphy said that defendant Sergio M. Rangamar should not be charged with criminal action for the mere possession of a handgun.

...

Attorney Mark Scoggins, counsel for Rangamar, has asked the court to dismiss the charges of illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunitions against Rangamar.

Scoggins asserts that laws that outlaw the simple possession of handguns in the CNMI are unconstitutional. He pointed out that portions of the Commonwealth Weapons Act are unconstitutional under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

But I see this all over the place, because it seems to me that very few gun owners openly support their supposed reverence for the Second Amendment.

Buying millions of guns out of fear of losing the right to keep and bear arms is not going to stop any further infringement. Freedom is lost when good people do not stand together and keep informed.
 

IL: Illinois governor signs law expanding background checks for potential gun owners

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed a new gun-control measure into law Sunday that requires all gun owners, including private citizens, to check the background of the person buying the gun.

Under previous legislation, adults only had to undergo a background check if they were buying guns at a licensed firearm shop or at a gun show in the state. Under the new law, gun owners are also required to report any lost or stolen firearms to the police within 72 hours.
 

WV: Manchin Unapologetic on Guns (But Still Playing Defense)

"Guns, I don't need to tell you about guns," Manchin said, getting a knowing laugh from the friendly crowd of about three dozen.

Manchin's push earlier this year to expand background checks on gun sales was widely known, thanks in part to the National Rifle Association. In June, the NRA spent $100,000 airing an ad slamming Manchin for working with President Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on their "gun-control agenda." Manchin, a lifelong NRA member, punched back, with his own $100,000 ad buy defending his position. And last month, the NRA countered by sending letters critical of Manchin to 200,000 West Virginians.

Such defense can be armed or unarmed. The unarmed method includes hand and elbow strikes, kicks to vulnerable parts, and forcing the attacker to loosen grip. The armed section includes a wide variety of weapons. Improvised weapons like keys, flashlights, kitchen utensils, newspapers, hair sprays, pencils, knives, umbrellas, and pepper sprays can be used. Women are physically smaller than men, but they can fight back if they learn some basic techniques.

Ed.: Certainly can't let women posses guns.

New York’s police commissioner Raymond Kelly said he understands the sensitivity for minority communities of the controversial stop-and-frisk police practice, but doesn’t support changing it.

“Violence is happening disproportionally in minority communities,” said Kelly on a Sunday morning news program Aug. 18.

During a very brief interview with Meet the Press host David Gregory, Kelly said that people being subjected to stop-and-frisk are minorities.

Six armed robbers entered a Houston-area Denny’s restaurant a little over a week ago and while there, accosted a woman’s husband. What the robbers failed to factor into their plans was that the woman, who was in the ladies room at the time, possessed a concealed carry permit, she was carrying a firearm, and she wasn’t afraid to use it. And use it she did, according to Click2Houston.

When she exited the restroom and saw the six robbers and her husband on the floor, she drew her weapon and opened fire. After a brief shootout, the robbers scurried from the scene.

American citizens' Second Amendment is not the problem. It's the lack of knowledge of guns. I have been hunting since I was 14 and have been around guns my whole life. Guns are nothing but a tool that can be used improperly when placed in the wrong hands. The gun did not pick itself up and shoot people on its own. It has to be operated by someone who is aiming to do wrong. It does not matter what acts of legislation are put forth, gun violence will continue. You cannot hide behind laws. Murder and burglary are illegal, but do people still do it?
 

NC: Club owners, patrons wary of new gun law

House Bill 937 allows gun owners with permits to keep firearms locked in their car when parked on college or public school campuses. And it increases the amount of information in the state’s background check system.

But that’s not why it has become controversial.

The law also allows permit holders to carry a concealed firearm inside bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.

Although the law, which goes into effect Oct. 1, prohibits drinking alcohol while having a concealed firearm, that’s not enough to ease the concerns of some business owners and club patrons.

Anti-gun Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and Washington CeaseFire are teaming up Monday to encourage businesses in the city to become “gun free zones,” an effort that may “make a statement” but has no track record of discouraging a single crime.

This columnist was interviewed by KING 5 Sunday evening for a reaction to the announcement.

“We know this won’t stop someone determined to cause violence,” acknowledged Ralph Fascitelli, CeaseFire Board President in a statement, “but we hope that standing together and giving businesses a tool to say no to guns will change the conversation around gun violence. Maybe our message will even make it to Olympia – we need better tools now to stop gun violence in our community.”

Kimberly and Scott Czubek made a comment that it’s better to take all measures possible when it comes to children’s safety.

“It’s better then taking a chance with the alternative. If teachers feel comfortable and want to learn police-like training (and get their CCW) then by all means let them.”
