NY Taxpayers Subsidize CT Gun Job Heist; Remington Lobbies for Military Contracts

Remington Arms is part of the “Freedom Group.” The conglomerate includes Bushmaster, DPMS/Panther Arms, Marlin, H&R, NEF, LC Smith, Parker, EOTAC, AAC, Dakota, INTC and Barnes Bullets. It was assembled by the secretive Steven A. Feinberg and his financial minions at Cerberus Capital Group.

Campus cops shot the [allegedly] delusional doctoral student in the face with a rifle bullet after failing to subdue him with a Taser and beanbags fired from a shotgun. Three of the five officers responding to the incident belong to UF’s 11-member “critical response team,” who are authorized to use semiautomatic rifles. “University police Lt. Alton McDilda said the rifles were acquired in response to the Columbine High School shooting. ‘It’s not a far stretch to say police officers can have rifles if the general public can have the same rifles,’ he said. ‘It just evens the playing field.'” Or tips it in their favor when the person in question is armed with a “metal rod” (purported to be Adu-Brempong’s cane). And what, pray tell, do the University cops carry. . . ?
