911 Call Released In Deadly Charlotte Home Invasion

 

Teen Shoots Home Invader

 

 

 

” Police have released the 911 call made during an alleged break-in that left a teen dead and his brother in jail on Tuesday.

  The incident happened at a home in the 8600 block of Rolling Fields Road, off of Whispering Falls Ave. near Fairview Rd. in southeast Charlotte.

  Police say Isai Robert Delcid, 18, was shot and killed by the resident’s grandson. His brother, 22-year-old Carlos Delcid, was arrested later Tuesday night.

“ They heard some noises, saw an individual at the back of the residence trying to come into their house,” said Lt. Eric Brady of Charlotte Mecklenburg Police.

  The 911 call was released Wednesday. “Yeah somebody just broke in the house and we shot,” the caller tells the dispatcher. “He’s out there bleeding for God’s sake. He broke our window, he was coming in.”

  The caller goes on to tell the dispatcher that another man pulled away in a gray SUV. But, she says, they are more worried about the man who is still outside the house that they believe is dead.

  During the call, a young man can be heard in the background. “I said who is it and he wouldn’t stop,” the teen says. ““He broke my grandma’s window so I shot three times.” “

 

 

This isn’t the first time that this young man has been the victim of a violent crime …

 

 

”  WBTV learned the 14-year-old lost his father during a robbery-homicide in 2008.

  Wyant said his son-in-law, Greg Hernandez, was shot to death at his business, Greg’s Automotive on Independence Blvd. “He had the hood open in his car,” Wyant said. “He was a mechanic. It was his garage. Somebody came in and shot him.”

  Wyant’s grandson was eight years old at the time. Now, six years later, he was apparently trying to protect his grandmother and himself from intruders.”

Sandy Hook Families File Lawsuit Against Gun Manufacturer

 

 

 

 

 

” Nine families of victims killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School and one survivor filed a wrongful-death lawsuit Saturday against the manufacturer of the rifle used in the shooting in Newtown, Conn.

  Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 schoolchildren and six staff members using a Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S rifle on Dec. 14, 2012. The rifle was lawfully purchased by Nancy Lanza, Mr. Lanza’s mother, according to law-enforcement officials.

  The lawsuit, which has been reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, was hand-delivered to a Connecticut state marshal, according to a spokeswoman for the families. The marshal now has 30 days to serve the defendants named in the lawsuit. The lawsuit will be heard in Superior Court in Bridgeport, Conn.

  The suit names as defendants Bushmaster Firearms International, which is owned by Remington Outdoor Co.; Camfour, a company that distributes Bushmaster products; and Riverview Gun Sales, an East Windsor, Conn., gun shop that sold the rifle to Ms. Lanza.

  The lawsuit claims the gun maker, the firearms distributor, and the store that sold firearm are liable for producing and selling a weapon unfit for civilian use.”

Suspect In Springdale Gunfight Appears In Court

 

 

Granny Shoots Robber

 

 

 

” Leon Roberson, 20, had a court hearing at the Washington County Detention Center Monday (Dec. 8). Springdale Police said he and Marcus Gould, 25, robbed C & S Gun and Pawn Shop at gunpoint on Saturday morning (Dec. 6).

Man Killed By LAPD Said To Be Street Performer With Plastic Prop Knife; Cops Accused Of Planting Real Knife

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Los Angeles police gunned down a man at a busy Hollywood intersection Friday night, claiming he had been trying to attack them with a knife, causing them to fear for their lives, which is why they fired several rounds, leaving his body laying on a corner as shocked witnesses looked on.

  But some locals are saying the man was merely a street performer known as “J” who would pose with tourists holding a prop knife made of plastic.”

” The area of Hollywood Blvd where he was killed is near the famous Walk of Fame and is renowned for its street performers who dress up in costumes and play roles to the amusement of tourists. Many of the performers dress up as characters from Hollywood movies, who pose with tourists for photos in exchange for tips.”

So, What’s Up With 7.62X39 MM In AR Rifles?

 

 

 

 

” There’s a modern trend going on with a retro cartridge these days. Evidence of it can be found in the SIG Sauer 556R (rumored to have been developed at the behest of a specific high-speed military customer) and then there is the brand new CMMG MK47 Mutant. Essentially these are Western SIG or AR-based rifles or carbines chambered for the 7.62×39 mm cartridge that do not come with the limitations of the AK-47 platform—but do employ the AK magazine. And, for military operators, there is less of training curve (which is somewhat important for guys who train all the time). I was once told regarding such guns, “There are times and places you just don’t want to leave Lake City 5.56 on the deck.” That is but one explanation as to why we are seeing more and more contemporary AR-style rifles chambered for the Soviet M43 cartridge.”

 

 

 

” Originally developed for use on the Germans during World War II (December 1943), the cartridge we know as the 7.62×39 mm cartridge was first used by the Red Army in the Simonov SKS carbine in 1945 and then became almost synonymous with the world’s most produced firearm, the Avtomat Kalashnikova or AK-47. If being 71 years old does not qualify a cartridge for “retro” I’m not sure what would.

  But it turns out the 7.62×39 mm has many advantages for civilians as well. First of all, with a bullet designed for expansion, it is a pretty good short- to medium-range hunting cartridge. You doubt me? Ballistically, it delivers similar performance to the venerable .30-30 Win. No one doubts the hunting credentials of that cartridge. And the 7.62×39 mm offers intermediate .30-cal. power out of the basic AR platform, on the cheap.”

 

 

 

 

” Bill Ruger recognized the cartridge’s potential when he introduced his Mini-30 carbine back in 1987. And, of course, Colt started chambering its Sporter in 7.62×39 mm in 1992 (although neither of those used an AK magazine), and other makers have followed suit since. ArmaLite, Bushmaster, Del Ton, Doublestar, DPMS, MGI Olympic and Rock River have offered complete rifles and/or uppers for the AR platform in 7.62×39 mm. No doubt there are others; likely with more on the way. “

Recall Alert: G2R RIP .45ACP Recalled

 

 

 

 

” The ammo that took the internet by storm several months ago, G2R RIP, is facing a limited recall.

  It would appear that there are compatibility problems with the company’s .45ACP ammunition with Glock handguns.

  G2R says they have revised the design and anyone who has unused .45ACP ammo is instructed to email the company for instructions to return the ammo for a free replacement.

The recall seems to only affect ammo being used in Glock pistols and not other firearms.”

Ramapo Rape Suspect Shooting Case Gets New Grand Jury

 

 

 

 

” Westchester prosecutors will not appeal a judge’s dismissal of charges against David Carlson in the Orange County shooting death of Norris Acosta-Sanchez, a fugitive who was wanted on a statutory rape charge in Ramapo.

  Instead, they will present the case to a new grand jury, a spokesman for the Westchester District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.

  The indictment was dismissed earlier this month by Judge Robert Freehill, who ruled that an Orange County prosecutor had compromised the integrity of the grand jury presentation by withholding Carlson’s statements about feeling threatened by Acosta-Sanchez’s aggressive movements.

  Carlson shot Acosta-Sanchez in the arm and head with a shotgun on Oct. 11, 2013, while walking him away from his Sparrowbush home. Carlson claims he fired when Acosta-Sanchez lunged at him. “

 

This is the type of “legal” maneuver one can expect in anti-gun New York …

 

” After pretrial hearings in August, Ostrer argued that the Orange County prosecutor should have shown the grand jury video of Carlson’s statements. Instead, a state trooper was allowed to recount what Carlson told him and denied Carlson ever claimed the fugitive had lunged at him — even though it was mentioned in the video. “

Afghan Mother Kills 25 Taliban Fighters In Seven-Hour Gun Battle After Watching Her Son Slain In Ambush

 

 

 

 

 

” A bereaved Afghan mother took revenge on the Taliban after watching them kill her son in an ambush. Reza Gul killed 25 Taliban fighters and injured five others in a seven-hour gun battle in Farah province.

  Gul, who was joined by her daughter and daughter in-law, engaged the Taliban using AK-47s and grenades, despite never before having used a weapon.

  The embattled mother told Tolo news, a 24-hour Afghan news broadcaster, she was awakened by shots early Tuesday. After seeing that her son had been killed, Gul and the other two women fought back.

“ I couldn’t stop myself and picked up a weapon,” Gul told Tolo News. “I went to the check post and began shooting back.”

  Seema, her daughter-in-law, added: “The fighting was intensified when we reached the battlefield along with light and heavy weapons. We were committed to fight until the last bullet.”

  Gul said that the battlefield was covered in Talib fighters after the deadly exchange ended.

  While the Taliban have not publicly commented on the incident, the Afghan government labeled it a symbol of a public uprising against the Taliban.

  Taliban and other groups have regained large swathes of the country as U.S. and NATO forces slowly pull out troops after 14 years of war. The Taliban have targeted government and foreign infrastructure as the group attempts to claw back power it lost in 2001.

  While the Taliban have made key gains in rural regions, members continue to employ suicide bomber tactics in well protected towns and cities. Earlier this week, 50 people were killed after a suicide bomber detonated a vest during a volleyball competition in Yahyakahil, Paktika province.

  That particular attack prompted President Ashraf Ghani to order a complete overview of the country’s defense forces and to rethink the ban on nighttime raids, which were outlawed by his predecessor, Hamid Karzai. “

” An Afghan mother claims to have killed 25 Taliban militants and injured several others after she found her son, who was a police, dead in a fierce gun battle with the insurgents at his check post in western Farah province.

” Reza Gul” the Afghan mother who rushed to take revenge of her son’s death stood behind an armament and claimed the lives of 25 insurgents.

  Woken up by the gunfire, Reza Gul told TOLOnews that she had no other option but to pick up a weapon after she found her son, who was the in charge of an outpost, dead in front of her eyes.

” It was around 5 a.m. when my son’s check post came under the attack of Taliban,” Gul said. “When the fighting intensified, I couldn’t stop myself and picked up a weapon, went to the check post and began shooting back.”

  Few minutes later, Gul was not alone when she found her husband, daughter, youngest son and daughter-in-law holding weapons and accompanying her in the fight against the insurgents.

” The fighting was intensified when we reached the battlefield along with light and heavy weapons,” said Seema, Gul’s daughter-in-law. “We were committed to fight until the last bullet.”
The fighting lasted several hours with 25 insurgents dead and many others wounded, she added.

” We started a kind of family war against the Taliban,” Fatima, daughter of Gul said, adding that she was personally preparing bullets for her father and mother to fight off the enemies.
Gul’s husband Abdul Satar stated they were ready to sacrifice the entire family, but not allow the Taliban to get closer to the check post.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Police Shooting Of Pre-Teen In Cleveland Caught On Surveillance Video That Contradicts Cops Claims

” Last week police in Cleveland shot and killed12-year-old Tamir Rice, claiming the boy tried to pull a (fake) gun out of his pants when ordered to put his hands up. The interaction was instigated by a 911 caller who said he saw someone with what was a “probably fake” gun.

  Now surveillance video appears to contradict police claims, as it shows the police officer shooting Rice immediately after getting out of a moving patrol car.

  There could be more than 300 million (real) guns in America, and an infinitesimally small proportion are used to commit crimes. Politically expedient fearmongering over guns, however, can lead to frivolous 911 calls that, in combination with trigger-happy yet largely immune cops, can be fatal. “

Two FBI Agents Shot At House Near Ferguson Unrest

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Two FBI agents were shot and wounded at a house in north St. Louis County early on Wednesday, though the incident was “not directly related” to racially charged unrest in and around nearby Ferguson, an agency spokeswoman said.

One agent was shot in the shoulder and the other was shot in the leg while assisting local police in executing an arrest warrant, FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu said in a brief statement. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

“The incident is not directly related to the Ferguson protests,” Wu said, but did not elaborate further. “

Lakewood Police Arrest Man In Home-Invasion Where Robber Killed

 

Washington Home Invader Kolled

 

 

 

” Lakewood police have arrested a 19-year-old man they believe participated in a home-invasion robbery that left one of the suspected robbers dead.

  Duprea Wilson of Seattle was charged Thursday with 12 felonies, first-degree manslaughter, robbery, kidnapping and assault among them.

  Three men knocked on the door and then forced their way inside when the man, who didn’t recognize them, tried to close the door, police said. One of the intruders was armed with a knife, another with a gun.

  They beat the man, who needed stitches to close a head wound, and cut his wife’s hand after dragging her out of the bathtub, court records show. The intruders then tied up the couple before searching the house for valuables, police said.

  At one point the robbers went outside, and the man was able to free himself and lock the front door. He and his wife then retreated to their bedroom and locked that door as well, court records show.

  The bandits broke through the front door, firing a shot as they did so, the records show. The man retrieved his own gun from a lock box and fired two shots when a pair of the bandits forced the bedroom door open, court records show.

  An hour or so later in Federal Way, police were called to the scene of a dead man with gunshot wounds in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Lakewood police believe that man, 19-year-old Taijon Voorhees, was one of the home invaders. “

” If you could only buy five long guns, which specific long guns should you buy – and why?

  Here, we’ll answer that question in detail:

1. Ruger 10/22 .22 LR

  This is simply the most successful .22 semi-automatic rifle in production. First introduced in 1964, the Ruger 10/22 has gained a stout reputation for being durable, reliable, accurate and easily customizable. In fact, the Ruger 10/22 is the second-most easily customizable long gun on the market, second only to the AR series of rifles.

  The 10/22 comes equipped with a 10-round magazine, but after-market 25-round banana magazines and even drum magazines are highly available for greater capacity.

  If you can only have five long guns, you need a .22 rifle — without question. Semi-automatic .22s are always a good choice due to their high capacity, and they’re enjoyable to shoot. Another popular and reputable .22 rifle is the Marlin 60; however, the Marlin 60 is tube-fed, resulting in slower reloading times and less capacity, and is also nowhere near as customizable as the 10/22.

2. Mossberg 500 Field Combo 12 gauge

  The Mossberg 500 field combo shotgun is one of the most versatile shotguns available. A field combo kit comes with two barrels: an 18.5-inch barrel for self-defense and a 28-inch vented rib barrel for hunting and target shooting. The two barrels are very easy to interchange, essentially giving you a two-in-one package. The 12 gauge is also the most popular shotgun round on the market, so if you’re going to stock up on shotgun shells, the 12 gauge is without question the one to buy first.

  Ultimate Tactical Self-Defense And Hunting Weapon That Doesn’t Require A Firearms License!

  The Mossberg 500 is one of the most popular and reputable pump action shotguns ever produced, and is intended for use in harsh conditions. It is second in popularity only by a razor thin margin to the Remington 870 in America. The 870 also comes in field combo kits, so why the Mossberg and not the Remington?

  Though personal preference is always the deciding factor, there are a few factors that arguably push the 500 just over the 870 in my view. The Mossberg 500/590 series is known for being the only pump action shotguns to pass the US Army’s Mil-Spec 3443E, which is a brutal torture test of putting more than 3,000 buckshot rounds through each shotgun in harsh conditions. The safety on the 500 is also naturally ambidextrous as it is placed on the top-rear portion of the receiver rather than the rear of the trigger guard of the 870. Lastly, there have been some reports that the Remington 870 series has seen a dip in quality in recent years. While these reports are all people’s opinions and millions of Americans still swear by their 870s and will for the decades to come, the Mossberg 500 remains a solid pump shotgun in today’s market.

3. Colt AR-15 5.56x45mm.

  The most popular rifle sold off the shelves today is the AR-15, and for a variety of reasons: inexpensive ammo, ergonomics, high-capacity magazines, availability of parts, low recoil, and accuracy. The AR-15 is also perhaps the most versatile rifle on this list. It can be used for hunting (an AR-10 .308 would be better for larger game such as elk), is an excellent combat weapon, and in all regards, is a modern-day musket. All of the roles that were fulfilled by the musket in the Colonial-era have been fulfilled by the AR-15 in today’s modern age.

  There are dozens upon dozens of different manufacturers of high quality AR-15s, but Colt has been making AR-15s for decades and they are held in high regard today. Colt makes a variety of different AR-15 models and variants, with some having different features than others.

4. Winchester 1894 .30-30

  The most popular sporting rifle in American history is the Winchester 1894 in .30-30, one of John Browning’s greatest rifle designs and a top seller for Winchester. The .30-30 lever action is a very handy rifle to have and has become an American icon. The .30-30 is a popular American round allowing for availability of ammo and is also known for being an excellent deer hunting round. The 1894 itself is a very slim but robust rifle. This makes it an excellent truck gun, as well as for a light rifle to pack while scouting or hiking out in the woods.

  Lever-action rifles can be easily customizable to give them a more tactical appearance and function in stark contrast to the more classic appearances from the Western days. While the Winchester 1894 should not take the place of your AR-15 as a primary combat weapon in today’s era, it’s still a neat and handy little rifle that is often overlooked.

5. Winchester Model 70 .30-06

  Just like the 1894, the Model 70 is a legend and has always been a top seller for Winchester.  Winchester Model 70s, especially the pre-64 editions, are widely regarded as some of the highest quality production rifles ever made. The Model 70 has rightly earned the now well-known nickname “Rifleman’s Rifle.”

  The .30-06 is one of the most prolific and enduring rifle cartridges ever sold in America. It’s an excellent hunting round that can be used on both medium and large game. You couldn’t ask for a more high quality hunting rifle than a scoped Winchester Model 70 in .30-06.

Akai Gurley: Black Man Shot And Killed By Police, Stepfather Angry At Accident

 

 

 

 

 

” Mr. Akai Gurley, a 28-year-old black man from Brooklyn, was shot and killed this week by a new police officer in what is being called an “unfortunate tragedy.” Yet Gurley’s stepfather is understandably angry about the accident, saying he is “p***** off,” and the New York community at large also seems full of unrest over the situation. Canada Journal News shares the latest on this breaking story this Saturday, November 22, 2014.

  While leaving a housing complex, Akai Gurley was said to be fatally shot. He was unarmed and involved in no criminal activity at the time, confirms the report. It seems in this sad case that the black man was killed by a rookie cop for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but not everyone is so sure. Gurley was leaving the Brooklyn apartment with his girlfriend by his side; this particular housing area where the accident occurred is known for its high crime rate.”

9-1-1 Caller Says Gun Held By Cleveland 12-Year-Old Shot By Police Was ‘Probably Fake’

 

 

 

 

 

”  The man who called 9-1-1 before a 12-year-old boy was shot by police told dispatchers the gun was “probably fake.”

  The man told police he was at the park near Cudell Recreation Center and could see “a guy with a pistol” on the swing set pulling the weapon from his pants and “scaring the s–t out of everyone.”

” There’s a guy with a pistol, and it’s probably fake,” he said quickly, “but he’s pointing it everybody.”

  When police arrived, a group of people were sitting around a table under a gazebo next to the rec center’s parking lot. A rookie officer in the car saw the pistol sitting on the table, and watched the boy grab it and put it in his waistband, Jeff Follmer said.

  The officer got out of the car and told the boy to raise his hands. Instead, police said, the boy reached into his waistband and grabbed the pistol.

  The officer fired two shots, at least one of which hit the boy in the stomach.

  The boy was rushed to MetroHealth Medical Center in serious condition, though his condition was not immediately known Saturday night. “

Three Wounded In Florida State University Shooting, Gunman Killed

 

 

 

 

 

” A gunman opened fire at a Florida university library, leaving three people wounded before campus police shot him dead early on Thursday, police said.

  Officers confronted the attacker outside Florida State University’s Strozier Library, ordered him to drop his weapon, then shot him dead when he opened fire on them, Tallahassee police said.

  Three people were wounded, police spokesman David Northway told reporters, without giving further details. A nursing supervisor at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare hospital said medics were treating two victims for gunshot wounds.

  Graduate student Alexandra Lauren told CNN that she was in the library at the time of the shooting.

” We heard the gunshots, and then it was in a matter of seconds the entire first floor just seemed to go into chaos,” Lauren said, her voice wavering.

” It was very scary. I’m just more heartbroken than anything else. FSU means a lot to me,” she added. “

No. 1 Rifle Wins Third GARC Contest

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The No. 1-ranked West Virginia University rifle team defeated Great American Rifle Conference (GARC) foe No. 16 Ole Miss, 4699-4568, today, at the Tronsrue Marksmanship Center, in West Point, N.Y.
  WVU (5-0, 3-0 GARC) won both disciplines, outshooting the Rebels (0-3, 0-2 GARC) in smallbore, 2328-2238, and air rifle, 2371-2330.
“ There were definitely some who struggled today,” said coach Jon Hammond. “We ended with a solid team score. The range conditions with different lighting made it challenging, but they all fought hard throughout.”
  Freshman Elizabeth Gratz placed first in smallbore with a career-high 584 (194 kneeling, 200 prone, 190 standing) mark. Her 200 prone score matched a school record, last shot by Jean-Pierre Lucas on Nov. 8 against Memphis.
“ Elizabeth has worked really hard in practice and is learning a lot about herself and how to perform,” Hammond explained. “Her matches have been great, and to make progress each one is really impressive.”
  Senior Thomas Kyanko placed second with 583, while junior Michael Bamsey placed third in the discipline with 581. Senior Ziva Dvorsak followed in fourth shooting 580.
 
  Gratz, Kyanko, Bamsey, Dvorsak and junior Garrett Spurgeon (576) completed the Mountaineer counting squad.
 
  Placing first in air rifle, Dvorsak scored 596 (99-100-99-100-99-99). Gratz and Rebel shooter Ali Weisz tied for second with 593 scores, while senior Maren Prediger placed fourth with 592.
  Kyanko and sophomore Jean-Pierre Lucas finished fifth with 590 scores.
  Dvorsak, Gratz, Kyanko, Prediger and Bamsey (589) contributed to the air rifle victory.
  Today’s victory pushes WVU to 10-3 all-time against the Rebels.
  The Mountaineers continue their season with another conference match against GARC foe No. 12 Army, tomorrow, Nov. 16, at the Tronsrue Marksmanship Center.
“ They will have to work hard and focus on their performance tomorrow,” Hammond said. “There are adjustments they can make and they may be more ready, but it will still require good focus and hard work.” “

10 Best Bolt-Actions

 

 

 

” Hundreds of different bolt-action rifles originated in Europe and the United States, and today hunters have a wide selection of turnbolt rifles to meet every hunting situation and budget. The modern bolt-action rifle is lighter and more accurate than at any time in history. Over the past several years there have been numerous upgrades to bolt-action design in the form of synthetic stocks, improved finishes and better machining, but today’s rifles remain very much true to original designs.

  A few bolt-action designs stand out as the best in history. Some have a reputation for rock-solid dependability, some have become hunting field favorites, and others have revolutionized bolt gun design. Certain guns, such as the Winchester Model 70, have been the basis for a number of other, later designs that have also been successful. Others, such as the Remington Model 700, have become so widely accepted by shooters and hunters that you’ll find one in virtually every hunting camp in the country. However, all of these guns, have earned a place in history as the best bolt guns ever created.

  Here’s a look at the 10 best bolt guns of all time. Be sure to vote for your favorite and enter the debate! “

Cuomo’s Gun Law Plays Well Downstate But Alienates Upstate

 

 

 

 

” In large stretches of upstate New York, it is the reason Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is deeply unpopular. To many voters in New York City and its suburbs, it is one of his crowning achievements.

  Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, made New York the first state to pass a broad package of new gun laws after the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., in 2012. Seizing a singular political moment, he called it the Safe Act, and he implored Congress to follow his lead.

  Nearly two years later, as he seeks a second term, Mr. Cuomo presents the act to his supporters as one of his greatest successes, and Democrats are assailing the governor’s Republican challenger, Rob Astorino, for being lax on guns. It remains one of the most far-reaching pieces of gun-control legislation passed in response to the Newtown shooting.

  But in pushing for passage of strict new gun laws, Mr. Cuomo alienated a vocal constituency across upstate New York, a region he has otherwise wooed. In court, gun owners have challenged the constitutionality of the laws; on lawn signs and bumper stickers in places like the Catskills and western New York, they demand their repeal.

 Counties, towns and villages have passed resolutions denouncing the laws, and some counties have even demanded that their official seals not be used on any paperwork relating to them. In response to an open records request, the governor’s office shared hundreds of pages of such resolutions, from far-flung places like the Adirondack town of North Hudson, with 238 residents, to more populous areas like Erie County.

The calculation when it was passed was people were going to get mad for a little while and then get over it,” Stephen J. Aldstadt, the president of the Shooters Committee on Political Education, said. “I don’t think people are getting over it.” Despite its scope, the Safe Act was not everything it was originally intended to be, and there were stumbles. A provision limiting the size of gun magazines, for example, turned out to be unworkable.

  Thirty-two days after the shooting in Newtown, on Jan. 15, 2013, Mr. Cuomo signed the act into law. The measure included an expanded ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, as well as a broader requirement for background checks, and tougher penalties for gun crimes.”

Guns OK In Nebraska Senior Photos If ‘Tasteful’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s a new twist on the guns-in-schools debate: A district in central Nebraska has told seniors it’s OK to pose with firearms in their senior portraits, which are taken off campus. The students in the Broken Bow district, however, have to abide by a few rules, reports the Omaha World-Herald: Gun photos must be “tasteful and appropriate,” which means no aiming at the camera and no photos that include an “animal in obvious distress.” “
