CBS: Mexico Murder Rate 5X Higher than U.S. Despite Strict Gun Control – “Mexico has ‘restrictive’ gun control — including comprehensive background checks — and a homicide rate over five times higher than the rate in the U.S. According to the University of Sydney’s Gun Policy center, Mexico has “restrictive” gun controls. And while there is ‘a right to private gun ownership’ in Mexico, it rests on a ‘conditional guarantee’ that can “limited by statute law.” Such law means Mexican citizens are limited to owning rifles of .30 caliber and smaller, revolvers of .38 caliber and smaller, and semiautomatics of 9mm and smaller.” When did Fox Butterfield start writing headlines for Breitbart?
Gov. Cuomo launches review of Port Authority’s chaotic response to Kennedy Airport shooting scare – “Gov. Cuomo is demanding a top-to-bottom review of the Port Authority Police Department’s botched response to an active-shooter scare at Kennedy Airport. ‘Obviously, the whole incident was unfortunate, but we can actually learn from these situations,’ Cuomo said Wednesday. ‘I want a full review of what happened, and I’m putting together a multiagency team of state officials who will review the response to see how we make it better.’” Nothing is more productive or effective than a government multi-agency task force.
“Two new models of Heckler & Koch’s VP striker fired pistol have been added to the company line-up this summer. New Flat Dark Earth (FDE) colored frame variants and threaded barrel ‘Tactical models’ join the renowned VP family of 9 mm and .40 caliber pistols.” The tactical models have threaded barrels.
Wizard World Chicago Fans Are Not Happy About A Gun Maker’s Booth – “According to The Comics Reporter, D.S., which specializes in U.S. and foreign small arms weapon systems, was originally scheduled to ‘[present] imitation, costume Star Wars and other movie/comic type weaponry,’ but when Wizard Entertainment realized the company was a manufacturer and dealer of actual weaponry, they ‘elected to not retain them as an exhibitor at the event.’ Fast forward a couple days, and outlets were reporting Wizard had changed its tune once again and D.S. would be at the show.” DS agreed not to have any actual firearms at the show, but that didn’t mollify some of the bed-wetters.
Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey rules out run for higher office – “Most recently, Healey interpreted the state’s ban on assault weapons and copies of assault weapons to broaden the definition of a ‘copy.’ She has drawn the ire of gun owners, and one national group intends to sue to overturn her decision. Healey spoke to Fox 25 about the gun ban, and her comments came in response to critics who accuse her of expanding the gun ban as a way to further her political ambitions. Asked about those comments, Healey said her reason for enforcing the gun ban is, ‘I’m trying to do my job.'” Apparently gun rights still mean enough in Massachusetts to convince her she no longer has a chance at higher office after this stunt. Go figure.
Never mind the at vapid and at times woefully ill-informed discussion that passes for analysis by the
MSNBC ESPN panel. Educating NFL-ers on responsible gun ownership can only be a good thing. Right?
Why so shy? Trump blasts M-4 rifle at targets before meeting police – and even hits two bullseyes – but refuses to release a photo of himself armed at the range – “Donald Trump fired off an M-4 rifle on Thursday as he took his ‘law and order’ appeal to a gun range at a North Carolina police lodge. But his campaign team wouldn’t release a photo he took with police officers who joined him at the shooting range, and individual officers weren’t allowed to shoot their own pictures with the presidential candidate, an officer told DailyMail.com. Early reviews are that Trump was right on target when he aimed and fired.” Photo or it didn’t happen.
