Copenhagen Shooting Suspect Killed By Police

 

 

 

 

 

” Danish police said they shot dead a gunman on Sunday who they believe was behind shootings at a free-speech event at a Copenhagen cafe and a nearby synagogue a day earlier.

  The suspect was shot dead on the street outside a train station in the northern part of Copenhagen after he opened fire, police said.”

 

 

 

 

 

” “ There are a number of things indicating we have the right perpetrator, but our technical investigation isn’t complete so we cannot be 100% sure,” said Jørgen Skov, head of the Copenhagen police. “There is nothing to suggest that several perpetrators are involved.”

  Police said the alleged gunman took a cab to an area in the Nørrebro neighborhood, and that they were able to track his whereabouts and link him to the earlier attacks through city and taxi video-camera surveillance.”

 

 

The suspected gunman caught on surveillance camera

 

 

” Denmark launched a nationwide manhunt Saturday after two people were killed and several wounded in the two separate attacks.

  The first targeted a seminar on Islam and free speech in the wake of the January attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Police said a man sprayed dozens of gunshots through the plate glass windows of central Copenhagen’s Krudttoenden cafe, where Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks and France’s ambassador to Denmark, François Zimeray, were in attendance. Neither Mr. Vilks nor Mr. Zimeray was injured, but a 55-year-old man died and three security officers were wounded.

  Hours later, police reported another shooting, near a synagogue in downtown Copenhagen, that killed a 37-year-old guard outside a bar mitzvah and wounded two police officers.”

BATFE To Ban Common AR-15 Ammo

 

 

 

 

” In a move clearly intended by the Obama Administration to suppress the acquisition, ownership and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unexpectedly announced today that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” The decision continues Obama’s use of his executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.

  It isn’t even the third week of February, and the BATFE has already taken three major executive actions on gun control. First, it was a major change to what activities constitute regulated “manufacturing” of firearms. Next, BATFE reversed a less than year old position on firing a shouldered “pistol.” Now, BATFE has released a “Framework for Determining Whether Certain Projectiles are ‘Primarily Intended for Sporting Purposes’ Within the Meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(c)” , which would eliminate M855’s exemption to the armor piercing ammunition prohibition and make future exemptions nearly impossible.      

  By way of background, federal law imposed in 1986 prohibits the manufacture, importation, and sale by licensed manufacturers or importers, but not possession, of “a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely . . . from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium.” Because there are handguns capable of firing M855, it “may be used in a handgun.” It does not, however, have a core made of the metals listed in the law; rather, it has a traditional lead core with a steel tip, and therefore should never have been considered “armor piercing.” Nonetheless, BATFE previously declared M855 to be “armor piercing ammunition,” but granted it an exemption as a projectile “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes.”

  Now, however, BATFE says that it will henceforth grant the “sporting purposes” exception to only two categories of projectiles:

Category I: .22 Caliber Projectiles

  A .22 caliber projectile that otherwise would be classified as armor piercing ammunition under 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(B) will be considered to be “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes” under section 921(a)(17)(C) if the projectile weighs 40 grains or less AND is loaded into a rimfire cartridge.

Category II: All Other Caliber Projectiles

  Except as provided in Category I (.22 caliber rimfire), projectiles that otherwise would be classified as armor piercing ammunition will be presumed to be “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes” under section 921(a)(17)(C) if the projectile is loaded into a cartridge for which the only handgun that is readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade is a single shot handgun. ATF nevertheless retains the discretion to deny any application for a “sporting purposes” exemption if substantial evidence exists that the ammunition is not primarily intended for such purposes.

  BATFE is accepting comments until March 16, 2015 on this indefensible attempt to disrupt ammunition for the most popular rifle in America. Check back early next week for a more in-depth analysis of this “framework” and details on how you can submit comments. “

N.S. Police Say They’ve Foiled Attempt To Kill People In A Public Place

 

 

 

 

 

 

” RCMP in Nova Scotia say they have foiled an alleged plot to kill a large number of people in the Halifax area on Valentine’s Day.

” The evidence to date and the information is, had they been able to carry out their plan there was potential for a large number of individual citizens to be put at risk,” Nova Scotia RCMP Assistant Commissioner Brian Brennan told a Friday evening news conference.

  Police allege a 19-year-old man from Timberlea, N.S., and a 23-year-old woman from Illinois planned to go to a public venue in the Halifax region on Saturday, “with a goal of opening fire to kill citizens, and then themselves.”

  Acting on a tip from a member of the public about “a potential significant weapons-related threat,” police tracked down the male suspect at a Timberlea residence, where he was found dead in the early hours of Friday morning.”

Shooting Guns? It’s Rather Fun, Actually

 

 

 

 

Shooting a handgun at a target is a thrill; don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You load bullets into a clip, push it up into the gun, turn off the safety catch, take careful hold of the gun with two hands, aim and shoot. The thing jumps in your hand and you see the bullet knock a hole in the target and spark off the floor at the back of the range. There is an extraordinary rush and then you do it again. Another spark; perhaps this time the hole in the target is a little closer to the centre. Soon you have fired the whole clip and you’re loading the deadly weapon in your hand again.

  That is just to preface a more obvious point. To a liberal European reporter, from afar, American gun culture appears utterly insane. Americans are far more likely to murder someone or to kill themselves than people in almost all Western European countries, largely because guns make it easier. That almost 33,000 people are killed with firearms each year in America (including three Muslims in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, earlier this week) is a colossal and largely unnecessary waste of life. That people celebrate these deadly devices and carry them around while shopping, picking up their children from school or working, seems monstrous.

  Yet shooting is fun. And what Europeans—and liberal Americans—often don’t realise is that these deadly weapons are also an accessible, affordable and interesting hobby for millions of people. My experience of firing a pistol took place at a shooting range in the Maryland suburbs, about half an hour’s drive outside of Washington, DC. I had until then never visited a shooting range and I had no idea of what to expect. But the experience was actually oddly familiar. This place was not a temple to violence. Rather, it mostly closely resembled the golf driving range that my father would occasionally take me to as a child.”

 

 

Then there is this:

 

 

” In the range people fired guns gleefully at targets. Some were white, male, middle-aged and somewhat scary-looking. But not all. Across from where I fired my pistol, two black women, one with a small son, were taking turns (the child heavily supervised). Shooting targets was a fine family day out. At a practice target outside of the range, plenty of people were learning how to hold a weapon for the first time, without pointing it at anyone, dropping it or injuring themselves as it recoiled. Again, it resembled a driving range: people hitting targets for fun.

  And the truth is that in the range, the violence that guns inflict on America felt extremely remote. A few stickers here and there made political points (“My right to own a gun is what protects your right to tell me I can’t”, said one). But mostly, the idea of guns as a means to kill somebody was absent. And so it is for most people who fire guns. The most dangerous neighborhoods for gun violence in America are in poor cities, not in the suburban areas where most gun owners live. Most of the 21,000 or so suicides in which guns are used take place behind closed doors. And the numbers, while devastatingly high, are not so high that most Americans will know someone who was killed with a gun.

  For the majority of gun owners, being told that their harmless hobby is somehow responsible for the deaths of other people must be deeply unpleasant. Worse still is when they are told it by metropolitan types with more money than them. Michael Bloomberg, for example, New York’s billionaire ex-mayor. Or possibly me. And it makes me wonder whether one of the problems—certainly not the main problem, but one of them—with attempts to control guns is precisely that the people making the loudest case for reform are people like Mr Bloomberg and me.”

 

 

 There is some confusion sown by the writer with the two separate fatality statistics wherein the ill-informed reader could easily be lead to believe ( intentionally?) that the linked 21,000 suicide deaths are in addition to and not a part of the total firearms related deaths but the typical gun owner knows better . 

  And while the writer does take the obligatory shots at demonizing that leftist bogeyman , the NRA , overall the article from a self-declared liberal with no firearms experience and plenty of pre-conceived anti-gun bias is fairly evenhanded .

 

 

” But keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill is not incompatible with widespread gun ownership. And bringing about the changes that will make America safer means convincing people who routinely use guns safely that they are not the enemy. Perhaps what gun control needs is a few advocates who are a little more visibly familiar with the sheer fun of holding a pistol and pulling the trigger.”

 

 

   Perhaps unsurprisingly the author chooses to remain anonymous , writing under the byline DK . Still , the article is worth your time . Read it all at The Economist .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Man Not Charged After Shooting And Killing SWAT Officer In No-Knock Raid

 

 

 

 

Josh Paniagua
February 11, 2015

(ANTIMEDIA)

” Let’s start in Prentiss, Mississippi on the night of December 26, 2001. Police carried out a no-knock raid on the home of Cory Maye during a raid on his neighbor Jamie Smith, a known drug dealer who lived on the other side of Maye’s duplex. Upon hearing a crash at his back door, Maye rushed to grab his .380 caliber pistol, unaware that the intruders were police. Maye fired 3 shots into Officer Ron Jones, killing him with a final fatal shot. About a gram of marijuana was found. In 2004, Cory Maye was sentenced to death by lethal injection. However, after 2 retrials and 10 years in prison, Maye signed a plea agreement pleading guilty to manslaughter and was released in 2011.

  Now let’s fast-forward to January 17, 2008 in Chesapeake, Virginia. 28-year-old Ryan Frederick heads to bed at 8:00 pm to be ready for his morning shift just to be immediately awoken by crashes at his front door. Frederick grabs his pistol, looks out of his room, and sees unknown intruders smashing in his door. In defense of himself and his home, he fired his gun at the front door, striking and killing Officer Jarrod Shivers. It should be noted that 3 days prior to the police raid, Frederick’s home had in fact been invaded. It would later be revealed that the intruder was actually a police informant that broke in and searched his home for probable cause for a raid. In February 2009, he was sentenced to the maximum 10 years in prison for manslaughter.

  Then more recently, we have the case of 49-year-old Marvin Louis Guy. In the early hours of May 9th, 2014, police executed a no-knock raid on Guy’s home. Upon their forced entry, they were greeted with gunfire from Guy, resulting in the death of Officer Charles Dinwiddie. A warrant for the raid was issued after a police informant claimed to have seen cocaine being trafficked through Guy’s apartment. After the raid, only a glass pipe was found and nothing to suggest he was trafficking drugs. Marvin Guy is awaiting trial but is facing charges for capital murder which is punishable by death.

  See a pattern here? A SWAT team aggressively invades somebody’s home in a no-knock raid based on information from a snitch, officer gets killed in an act of self-defense, the information turns out to be illegitimate, and then the people defending themselves and their property from unknown invaders are charged with capital murder or manslaughter. And coincidentally, they all happen to be drug-related cases. But a grand jury in Texas broke that pattern when they dropped all charges related to the shooting and killing of Deputy Adam Sowder during another botched no-knock raid.

  On December 19th, 2013, 9 Burleson County Sheriff’s Department raided the home of Henry Magee and his pregnant girlfriend in. Magee believed that his home was being robbed, so to protect himself and his girlfriend, Magee grabbed his gun and opened fire on the unidentified intruders, resulting in the death of Adam Sowders.

  The SWAT raid was executed based on information from yet another police informant. Officers believed they would find a major marijuana grow operation consisting of over a dozen six-foot plants and several firearms, including one that had been stolen from the department. Instead, they found 2 6-inch plants, under an ounce of marijuana, and 4 guns all legally owned by Magee.

“ It was a tragic accident, but it wasn’t a crime,” Magee’s attorney Dick DeGuerin tells the press, “Hank did what a lot of people would have done under the circumstances[…] When awakened by a loud boom and somebody’s kicking in the door, they defend themselves.”

  The grand jury found that Henry Magee acted in self-defense and dropped the murder charges. He was however indicted for possession of marijuana, and possession of a deadly weapon and illegal drugs is a felony (which in itself is completely outrageous). But aside from the ludicrous weapons charges and the absurdity of general US policy on marijuana, what’s important to recognize is the breaking of a cycle. The police fucked up, one of them got killed in the process, and a grand jury recognized that enough for a man to avoid manslaughter or capital murder charges which are, as mentioned earlier, punishable by death.

  Now, before anybody starts getting all bent out of shape, allow me to clarify: this story isn’t good news to me because somebody got away with shooting a cop. This story is good news because in regards to the murder charges, I believe unconditional justice was served. These officers stormed into this man’s house where he and his pregnant girlfriend were sleeping, did not identify themselves as police officers, and got shot at. Aside from the basic fact that Magee himself pulled the trigger, it’s quite clear to see who is at fault: the unidentified intruders.

  Still, the dropped murder charges don’t change the fact that Magee is being indicted on drug and weapons charges which also happen to be victimless. Henry Magee growing marijuana did not result in an officer being shot. Unnecessary force, lack of investigation, and senseless drug policies resulted in an officer being shot.”

Gunman Knocked Down In Attempted Car-Jacking

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Footage has been revealed of an armed man trying to escape a high-speed police chase by hijacking a car on a busy motorway.

  Two men had been tracked by police from Queensland, Australia, on a 93-mile (150km) police chase from near Brisbane through to New South Wales.

  Police halted the blue Mitsubishi Lancer with road spikes at Tweed Heads before one of the men fired his semi-automatic handgun at police.

  He then tried to shoot at a passing car, forcing it to stop suddenly and the car behind it to plough into its back, sending belongings across the busy Pacific Motorway.

  Both drivers appeared unhurt.

  Apparently trying to hijack another car, the 32-year-old pointed his gun at another vehicle, which struck him, knocking the gun from his hand.”

Hooded Gunmen Open Fire On Police In Marseilles

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Hooded gunmen exchanged fire in a Marseille housing project known as an open-air drug market on Monday, prompting police to close off the area in a search for the shooters the same day France’s prime minister planned to visit the city.

  No injuries were immediately reported in the shooting in the Castellane housing project, an area north of the city’s old port that is rife with drug violence and gangs.

  There were conflicting reports about whether officers had also been targeted by automatic gunfire. David Olivier Reverdy, a police union official, told RTL radio no officers were specifically targeted and no one was wounded.”

 

 

    While the news article takes pains to stress the fact that this area of Marseilles is well-known for drugs and gangs one cannot help but wonder as to the origins and motivations of the assailants given the fact that the area is represented by one Samia Ghali , a woman who although native born , is of Algerian extraction , a group which makes up the single largest non-native born demographic in the city:

 

 

” In 2006, the single largest nationality was residents of Maghrebian origin from Algeria (70,000), followed by Comoros (45,000). About 30% of the population today has Italian ancestry. Marseille is now home to the second-largest Armenian and Corsican population sin the country, with large populations of Chinese, Comorians, Turks, Maghrebis, and Vietnamese.”

 

 

    Is this another case of political correctness coloring the reporting of the facts ? Dhimmitude on display or simple crime ? The fact is that we the people cannot place much faith in the mainstream media of today and perhaps we will never know the whole truth.

Lawmakers Introduce Measure To Ban High-Capacity Magazines

 

 

 

 

” A group of lawmakers introduced a measure in Washington on Thursday that aims to end the sale of large-capacity ammunition, used by mass shooters in Newtown, Connecticut; Aurora, Colorado; Tucson, Arizona; and Fort Hood, Texas.

  Co-sponsors Rep. Elizabeth Esty of Connecticut and Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, both Democrats, unveiled the Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device Act. The bill would ban the importation, sale, manufacture, transfer, or possession of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

“ The only thing more senseless than the gun violence that has taken too many of our nation’s children and countless innocent Americans is the failure of Congress to pass common sense gun safety measures, like this one, that are supported by 90 percent of the American public,” Menendez said. “

Southgate Home Invader Killed

Click pic for video

 

 

” A home invasion ended in violence Thursday morning when a 74-year-old homeowner shot and killed an armed suspect who had broken into his home.

  The incident occurred at 4:47 a.m. in the 15000 block of Flanders, according to Chief Jeff Smith.

“ The defendant entered the home through a window and had a firearm with him,” Smith said. “The house was occupied by a man and his wife. He had a legal firearm and confronted the intruder. He ended up shooting him and the defendant died at the scene.”

  Police are working to identify the invader and have declined to release the names of the homeowners.

“ As he walked through the house, the home invader confronted him with his (handgun),” Coombs said. “(The homeowner) shot the home invader, and the home invader died here on the scene.” “

World’s Deadliest Sniper: Royal Marine Has 173 Confirmed Kills

 

 

 

 

 

” The world’s deadliest military sniper is a Royal Marine with 173 confirmed kills, including 90 members of the Taliban in just one day, it has been reported.

  The Briton, who has not been named, had served in the Royal Navy’s elite unit for more than a decade and recorded most of his kills during a six-month tour of Afghanistan in 2006/7, having also served in Iraq.

  The figure puts the corporal, reportedly married with two children and from southern England, ahead of US Navy SEAL commando Chris Kyle, who had 160 confirmed kills to make him the most lethal US sniper.

  Kyle’s exploits are the subject of a new film called American Sniper, starring Bradley Cooper. 

  According to The Sun, the British sniper is said to have hit 90 Taliban fighters in a stronghold in just one day. It is thought his total number of ‘kills’ could be even higher than 173 if unconfirmed strikes were taken into account. 

  A source told The Sun: ‘He is not interested in scores or kill counts. He took no satisfaction in the job he had to do.

‘ Because he saw the enemy as humans he has not struggled emotionally or psychologically with what has happened.

‘ He had a unique job at a unique time. He must be the most lethal sniper in the world. But that is not a title he would seek out or revel in.’ “

    While both Kyle and the unnamed Royal Marine are/were extremely good at their jobs , no one can surpass the king of all snipers , “The White Death” , Finnish soldier Simo Hayha , who logged over 500 kills during the “Winter War” against the Soviet Union in WW II .

Sig And ATF Submit Final Arguments In Silencer Lawsuit

 

 

 

” Is Sig Sauer trying to wiggle around regulation or are regulators ruling on arbitrary and capricious logic? Those are the questions Sig and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives answer in their final motions in a lawsuit over classifying a Sig muzzle device.

  On paper, the New Hampshire-based company claimed the item was a muzzle brake, but the ATF classified it as a silencer, which would subject ownership and manufacturing of the item to strict regulations.

  Sig filed suit in a New Hampshire federal court April 2014 after contesting the ruling for a year. Although legal arguments quickly plateaued, public interest in the case grew as some gun rights advocates began to see the case as corporate advocacy — an effort to undermine laws regulating silencers.

  However, Sig’s attorney, Stephen Halbrook, said the company aims to simply challenge a regulator that “overreaches” how it interprets legal definitions.”

Kristiana Coignard: ‘Anonymous’ Hacker Group Threatens Revenge For Teen Girl Slain By Cops

 

 

 

 

” The heartbreaking case of Kristiana Coignard, a 17-year-old girl gunned down by Longview, Texas, police officers in the lobby of their own police station last Thursday, has drawn the attention of the online hacker collective “Anonymous,” which threatened retaliation Saturday against the police and the city of Longview over the girl’s death by police gunfire.

  The Inquisitr on Sunday reported the tragic but equally mysterious story of the Kristiana Coignard killing, which took place after the teen walked into the Longview police station lobby in the early evening and used a courtesy phone, requesting to speak with an officer.

“ When Officers arrived they were confronted by a white female who threatened them,” according to the Longview Police Facebook page. “The suspect brandished a weapon, made threatening movements toward the officers and was shot.” “

  Kristiana Coignard was reportedly shot “multiple times,” with three officers involved. She was transported to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead. But police have not released any video or audio of the incident though they have acknowledged that such evidence exists.”

 

 

 

  Here is a surveillance camera video of the killing. The confrontation escalates to the physical at about eight minutes and the shooting starts at approximately the 11 minute mark: 

 

 

 

 

 

The police’s version of events goes like this:

 

” According to police, Kristiana Coignard entered the lobby of the police station at 6:28 p.m., picked up the lobby phone and asked for help, but she would not say why she needed help.

  Officer Glenn Derr was the first officer to arrive. When he did, police say Coignard indicated that she had a gun.

“ She had ‘I have a gun’ written on her hand,” Brian said.

  A physical confrontation began when Derr tried to secure Coignard. 

  During the confrontation, Derr determined Coignard had a butcher knife that she was trying to pull from her waistband.

  Derr got away from Coignard. Then, Officer Gene Duffie entered the lobby during the confrontation and drew his Taser.

  A third officer, Grace Bagley, entered the department lobby and saw Coignard had a knife. Police say Coignard charged Derr with the knife in a threatening manner. Duffie then deployed his Taser at Coignard, but police said it had no effect.

  Derr then fired his weapon three times, and Bagley fired her weapon twice. “

     A careful viewing of the video begs many questions . For one , why was Officer Derr alone in dealing with the girl for the first few minutes , why after he had her on the ground , face down was he not able to keep her there , and finally after two other officers arrive , why do they allow her to stand up ? Also , in the video it is apparent that after again gaining her footing , the young lady does not charge the cops , but heads for the counter when the officers open fire . Where was the imminent threat ?

   Another question that comes to mind is what kind of marksmanship training do these cops receive when  three officers had to fire five shots in the confines of the lobby ? What was the range ? 10 feet ? 15 tops ?

    Undoubtedly the police will rule the shooting justified , as is nearly always the case , but we find it disgraceful that three officers were incapable of subduing a slender teenaged girl , armed with a knife or not , without using deadly force . Apparently the officer’s singular duty is to protect their own lives and not those of the public . Shameful .

Police Investigate Gunshots Outside VP Biden’s Delaware Home

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Law enforcement officials have boosted security at the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden after several gunshots rang out from a vehicle speeding by the property over the weekend.

  The vice president and his wife were not at their Wilmington home Saturday night when the shots were fired and there were no reports of injuries, authorities said Sunday.

  Biden’s office said the vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, were briefed Saturday night, as was President Barack Obama. Biden’s office referred all other questions to the Secret Service. The vice president was set to speak Monday morning in Wilmington at a Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast organized by a minority women’s group.

  Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback said the shots were fired at about 8:25 p.m. Saturday on a public road outside the home’s secure perimeter. Biden’s home is several hundred yards from the road. Secret Service personnel stationed at the top of the long, winding driveway leading to Biden’s home heard the shots, saw the vehicle drive past the home at a high rate of speed and flee the scene.”

About this Video:

  Hatsan USA has taken their proven BT65 side bolt platform and expanded its capabilities. Now available in .30 and .35 caliber, these new offerings excel where it counts.

  Power – Having sufficient power to make clean kills at range is critical. Each caliber has been specifically tuned to maximize its performance, while still maintaining a high shot count. The .30 cal produces up to 75 foot pounds of energy and the .35 cal generates up to 95 foot pounds of energy.

  High Shot Count – Each Carnivore model will deliver 2 to 3 full
magazines of consistent power output. That’s, at least, 12 shots in .35 caliber and up to 21 shots in .30 caliber. In the Big Bore classification, there are few airguns that can match the Carnivore’s combination of “energy with shot count” performance.

  Effective Range – both calibers will consistently put lead on target at 50, 75, and even 100 yards making them some of the most accurate big bore airguns on the market at any price.

  Extremely Quite – The Carnivore line expands the use of Hatsan’s Quiet Energy System. Utilizing a fully integrated barrel shroud and suppressor, the perceived sound is extremely low and registers under 100 DB in 3rd party testing.

  Affordability – Continuing with their philosophy of delivering great airguns at reasonable prices, Hatsan USA has released their new Carnivore Big Bore Rifles at a very aggressive price point for their class.

  The New Carnivore Big Bore series from Hatsan USA. Taking serious, solid, impact to the next level and then some. Available now at select retailers.

Newtown School Panel To Include Proposed Gun Ban In Report

 

 

 

” An advisory panel charged with looking at public safety in the wake of the deadly Newtown school shooting agreed Friday to include in its final report a recommendation to ban the sale and possession of any gun that can fire more than 10 rounds without reloading.

  The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission, created by Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in the wake of the 2012 school shooting, plans to complete its work next month. The report will include dozens of recommendations in three categories: law enforcement and emergency response; safe school design and operation; and mental health and wellness.

  In its interim report last March, the commission included the proposed gun ban, which is opposed by the gun lobby and manufacturers. It would go much further than a 2013 Connecticut law which, among other things, expanded the state’s assault weapons ban and barred the possession and sale of large-capacity ammunition magazines.

” Whether or not this law would stand the test of constitutionality is not for this commission to decide,” said former Hartford Police Chief Bernard Sullivan, a member of the panel. “The commission has expressed very strongly that this is a statement that is needed regarding the lethality of weapons.” “

Papa John’s Pizza Stands By Employee Who Shot Armed Robber In Self Defense

 

 

 

 

 

” Papa John’s Pizza is standing by a pizza delivery woman who opened fire Sunday on an armed robber in an act of self defense.

  The pizza franchise told FoxNews.com Thursday the employee, who hasn’t been named, will not be fired from the company. 

  The employee was making a delivery in Decatur, Ga., Sunday night when a man approached her vehicle, forcing her onto the ground at gunpoint, according to the DeKalb County Police Department. The woman, who had a gun in her pocket, was able to fire at the man while on the ground — striking the alleged assailant, identified as 24-year-old Donquaz Stevenson, in the face.

  Stevenson was later found in a neighbor’s yard and arrested, according to police, who said the pizza delivery might have been a setup. Local media outlets reported that a second suspect carjacked the delivery woman’s silver 2000 Honda Accord and remains on the run.

  Stevenson was charged with armed robbery and was being treated for a gunshot wound at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. “
