This didn’t fly in Chicago. We guess it won’t fly in Piscataway, either.
The battle over gun control is coming to Piscataway amid a contentious Democratic primary, as local officials weigh an ordinance that would make it very difficult for weapons retailers to set up shop in the township.
A public hearing is set for June 14, nine days after the primary, on a proposed municipal ordinance that is apparently without precedent in New Jersey.
It would prohibit gun shops from opening within 1,000 feet of schools, parks, houses of worship, university campuses — the Rutgers University football field is in Piscataway — medical facilities, bars and other locations.
It must be an oversight that CNN doesn’t mention who’s paying for this summer’s magical mystery useful idiot tour . . .
To date, they’ve largely focused on gun control legislation, encouraging young people to vote and holding politicians accountable — specifically, those beholden to gun rights groups.This is why we’re going to TallahasseeNow, in an effort to combat low voter turnout, particularly in midterm elections, they’re embarking June 15 on a two-month summer tour. Along the way they plan to call for more action on gun control and stage voter registration drives in 50 cities, spanning 20 states.They’ll also be visiting every congressional district in their home state of Florida.
Some people just don’t know when to go away and keep their mouths shut . . .
CBS News reports that an interview with Peterson will air Tuesday on NBC. They discuss his initial call into dispatch, “Be advised we have possible—could be firecrackers—I think we have shots fired, possible shots fired.” Seconds later he followed up with, “Make sure we get some units over here, I need to shut down Stoneman Douglas.”
But he did not enter the building.
Peterson says if he knew then what he knows now he would have “been in that building in a heartbeat.”
Life in a gun-free utopia . . .
The shocking incident is the latest in a long line of stabbings and shootings in London over recent weeks.
On Saturday a young man was blasted in the face during a double shooting in Peckham, south London.
That came an hour after a separate incident which saw a man stabbed multiple times in Greenwich, south east London.
The 22-year-old shooting victim is still in a critical condition following the incident on Wodehouse Avenue.
A second victim, aged 25, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Still to come: Hogg’s Tawana Brawley and Freddie’s Fashion Mart moments . . .
David Hogg, one of the students from the Parkland, Florida, shooting incident who’s now gone punch-drunk on anti-gun juice, has set his sights, it seems, on companies with ties to firearms dollars, with a goal to figuratively disarm and decimate them — to get them to cut all ties with the firearms industry — and if they don’t, to be prepared to cough up some money.
It’s a shakedown style of First Amendment-ing. It’s what made Al Sharpton much of his money. Yes indeed, Hogg’s got the Sharpton flair.
.@Dicks Sporting Goods has been a leader in taking commonsense steps in response to gun violence. They're proof you can SUCCESSFULLY do business as a gun seller w/out selling assault weapons or to anyone under 21. I hope more companies follow their lead. https://t.co/aC4GdIK1v4
