OMG! A school librarian! Holding an AR! OMG! . . . Students find photo of librarian holding assault rifle – “Don’t be late returning books to this Bronx high-school library. Students last week spread around social media a photo of the Taft Educational Campus chief librarian holding an assault rifle inside a gun shop. One student at the Claremont school reposted the picture of Elizabeth Ervin, 47, with the snarky caption: ‘Don’t return the books in the library and you’ll see. Only ppl [sic] from Taft understand.’” Rest easy, though…the New York City public schools’ “Special Commissioner of Investigation will look into the incident.”
That’s Brett from Lantac showing off their latest idea for a California-legal AR. You have to have a Facebook account to view the video (click the image above), but it allows you to quickly load (what looks like) ten rounds of ammo into a fixed-magazine scary black rifle. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: You can’t stop the signal.
The latest hashtag campaign from change.org . . End the use of the “Human Black Target” at shooting ranges – “Shooters weren’t just faster to fire at black targets; they were also more likely to fire at a black target. We are calling on the International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors to update and modernize the instruction and teaching techniques being used to train the majority of law enforcement officers by taking into account recent research on trigger bias. Our end goal is to eliminate the use of the most popular target for shooters when learning to use their firearm: a black silhouette. There should be #NoMoreBlackTargets in shooting ranges, permitting, and instruction environments, or anywhere someone is learning to use a firearm.”

She is also charged with possession of a Baikal 12-gauge double-barrel shotgun, a Reno 12-gauge double-barrel shotgun and a Winchester pump-action shotgun at her home on the same date.”

Daily Mail has its civilian disarmament-loving mind blown by the prospect of putting John Lott’s premise into practice . . . What could possibly go wrong? ‘Black Guns Matter’ campaigner claims he will cut violence in inner cities like Chicago by arming residents with more LEGAL firearms – “A pro-gun campaigner is claiming he can cut inner-city violence in cities like Chicago – by giving people greater access to legal firearms and knowledge. Maj Toure is the founder of Black Guns Matter, a pro-gun organisation that aims to educate urban populations about their Second Amendment rights. He believes that years of prejudice have convinced people living in cities to associate guns with crime rather than defending themselves, their communities and their rights.”
And in the category of worst appeals to authority this month . . . Gun-free zones make sense – “But let’s go back to the ‘gun-free zones are easy targets’ argument. The problem is there is no empirical evidence, no data to suggest mass shootings are ever chosen because a place is marked a gun-free zone. In fact, research by Mother Jones and other independent research organizations has shown in mass shootings where a motive was eventually discovered, the killer was tied personally to the place where the shooting occurred: workplace shootings, school shootings where the shooter attended the school or had close personal connections there, shootings motivated by religious discrimination, racism or hatred over lifestyle choices. Were some of those places gun-free zones? Yes, but there is no evidence to suggest they were targeted because they were. And more poignant still, there is no evidence to suggest people carrying concealed weapons in those places would have done anything to stop the carnage. Empirical evidence and data show armed citizens either don’t try to stop the shooters or are unsuccessful, often injuring themselves or shooting innocent people in their drive to hunt down the killer.”
