Anti-Gun Group Tweets a Photo of a Gun…That’s Loaded Backwards – No, smart ass, it wasn’t an HK . . .
Everytown For Gun Safety, an anti-gun activist group known for posting all kinds of false stats about gun violence in an effort to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment rights, tweeted a Newsweek article alleging that arming teachers would somehow make minority children in urban schools “less safe.”
Officer who fatally shot Justine Damond charged with murder, turns himself in – Minneapolis’s police chief was fired after the shooting . . .
Damond was shot July 15, minutes after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. The 40-year-old life coach’s death drew international attention, cost the police chief her job and forced major revisions to the department’s policy on body cameras.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was scheduled to discuss charges Tuesday afternoon.
(Officer Mohamed) Noor, a 32-year-old Somali-American, has not talked publicly about the case and declined to be interviewed by state investigators.
In a statement Tuesday, Damond’s family praised the charges, calling them “one step toward justice.”
City of Richmond School Safety Resolution: Ban ‘Large-Capacity Ammunition Cartridges’ – They really have no f-ing idea what they’re talking about . . .
A proposed City of Richmond School Safety resolution asks Congress to ban “large-capacity ammunition cartridges.”
The proposed resolution also calls on Congress to “ban the manufacture, sale, purchase, possession, and use of assault weapons.”
It also asks to implement “universal background checks.” Such checks would require a background check for a private sale just like the background check currently required for a retail purchase. Ironically, almost every high-profile firearm-based attacker acquires his or her gun via background checks at retail sales, so such an expansion would do nothing to prevent future attacks.
Lacey Township School District revises policy banning guns outside of school – Punching back at zero tolerance stupidity . . .
The Ocean County school district has revised a policy that banned students from having guns outside of school.
The policy had said Lacey students could be punished for having weapons “on or off school grounds.” It now states students cannot bring weapons to school or on a bus.
The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs had threatened to sue the district over the policy. That came amid reports that two students had been suspended for posting a picture of guns at a shooting range.
Island NRA benefit cancelled by The Vanderbilt – The other-ing of guns and gun owners continues apace . . .

Tranchina declined to comment further about the decision to cancel to fundraiser.
The fundraiser was scheduled to take place in September.
