This doesn’t seem like a winning proposition . . .
The federal lawsuit said the conduct of the defendants — Lawrence “Lol” Sorensen of California, Christopher Risica of Connecticut and Howard Weiss, and Patrick Sullivan, whose places of residence are unknown — has caused emotional distress, humiliation, shame, and embarrassment and raises concerns the attacks “can quickly escalate into actual violence.”
“There is a marked difference between speech and harassment, and there are clearly delineated bounds of human decency that no person can cross by using fear, intimidation, and threats of violence to lash out at and try to silence those with whom they disagree,” the 31-page federal lawsuit said.
“The defendants have transcended mere criticism and employed threats, harassment, and personal abuse to try to humiliate and intimidate Hammer in a manner that is utterly intolerable in a civilized community,” the lawsuit added.
This isn’t close to being over . . .
Amid growing protests over the police shooting of a black man initially described as “unarmed,” Chicago police released body camera footage on Sunday showing that the victim, Harith Augustus, was carrying a handgun and a clip in a holster and appeared to attempt to draw it amid the tense encounter with officers.
At around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Chicago police officers fatally shot Augustus, 37. Prior to the shooting, noticing that Augustus had a firearm on him, officers approached him. Augustus initially complied with officers, but when one officer reached toward Augustus’ concealed firearm, he become combative and attempted to move away from the officers. When Augustus reached down as if to draw his weapon, officers fired.
OK, but he’s wrong . . .
When Willis had a chance to take the stage, he joked that Norton “rubbed more people the wrong way than Harvey Weinstein”—which should’ve elicited more boos than Rodman’s joke—and then he dared to draw the ire of a very specific branch of fans by declaring, “Die Hard is not a Christmas movie.” With that, the big Die Hard debate is officially over, and the internet will have to find something new to argue about in December.
This is apparently just dawning on people in decriminalized states . . .
In late June, a gun store in Charlemont, Massachusetts, posted a letter on Facebook from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The 2011 letter notified gun dealers that just because someone has a state medical marijuana card, it doesn’t mean it’s legal for them to purchase a gun.
Charles Ricko, who owns Overwatch Outpost Outfitters, said he decided to post the letter after hearing confusion among some gun owners.
“We’ve had several people come into the store,” he said. “They haven’t purchased guns, but people have made statements such as, ‘I’m a medical marijuana cardholder,’ and that marijuana is legal in Massachusetts now, so it shouldn’t affect them with buying a gun.”
But it does.
This has been building for a long time . . .
It’s a tight race, but NBC might just be the worst network. It seems to have given out orders for its TV shows to include some anti-gun or pro-gun control mentions.
This April, an episode of “Taken” (Season 2, Episode 11) tried to convey to viewers that gun-free zones work because the criminals obey the bans.
Santana (Jessica Camacho) asks Agent Bryan Mills (Clive Standen), if he is “OK with this whole no-guns thing” as they enter a hospital. Mills replies that it is OK because the gun-free zone means that “bad guys won’t have them either.”
Do viewers really believe that a group of professional killers couldn’t find some way to get guns into a hospital? Mass public shootings actually almost always occur in gun-free zones. Since 1950, that’s been true of 98 percent of incidents. This happens precisely because criminals prefer unarmed victims.
