A Gainesville woman accused of fatally shooting a man at an apartment complex has filed a motion for immunity from prosecution, saying the man had threatened to hurt her days before, according to court documents.

Sarah Star Voss, 35, was indicted in December on charges of malice murder, felony murder and aggravated assault from the Oct. 24 shooting death of David Parnell Best, 42, of Lithonia.

In a 911 call released to The Times via an open records request, Voss told the 911 operator that he threw a brick through her window and that she started shooting.

"He's been harassing me for the past two days, and I think I shot him," Voss said.

Attorneys for Chaka Zulu say the Atlanta music executive was forced to defend himself the night a 23-year-old was shot to death during a fracas outside his Buckhead restaurant, and that he never should have been charged with murder.

At a news conference Thursday morning, Zulu’s attorneys said he feared for his life after being attacked June 26 and had every right to defend himself. They also called on Fulton County’s district attorney to drop the charges.

“He was attacked from behind, beaten and pummeled to the ground,” said attorney Gabe Banks, who was flanked by Zulu and more than a dozen of the producer’s relatives and supporters.

"Some shots came off and then next thing you know, one of the kids got hit," says Marvin Oliver, one of those witnesses.

Oliver says it happened around dinner time, while they were getting ready to have a barbecue outside. But shortly after it began, a group of about six people showed up.

"Next thing you know, they pop out the cut from two different ways, they're coming down here trying to fight," says Oliver.

He says they were armed, and attempted to use the weapons.

"Guns and mace and stuff," says Oliver. "She tried to mace everybody on the porch."

That's when he says a gun was fired.
 

TX: Raising age to buy rifles in Texas won’t prevent mass shootings. There’s an obvious reason why

Reflexively enacting this gun-control measure would be no quick fix for school shootings, however, in no small part because it is patently unconstitutional. And it would be wrong. Young adults have the same rights as other adults, including the right to self-defense. The Heritage Foundation notes that “Americans use their firearms in self-defense between 500,000 and 3 million times annually.” Though no government agency tracks those incidents and records the ages of those who defended themselves, many are surely younger than 21. We can’t answer lawlessness with more lawlessness or a disregard for the Constitution. Even the notoriously liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agrees with that.

After a U.S. Marine veteran saved his friend’s life by disarming a man attacking him, he was arrested for possessing a handgun within 100 feet of a public building and carrying and transporting a concealed weapon.

Lloyd Muldrow, 57, former U.S. Marine, traveled to Baltimore, MD, to spend time with his friend. Upon his arrival at a bar where his friend was, he saw his friend in a struggle with another man. His friend was bleeding from the head after being pistol-whipped by the other man. The attacker was still holding a gun, so Muldrow disarmed the suspect, and then both men held him on the ground.
 

TX: Americans under felony indictment have a right to buy guns, judge rules

A federal law prohibiting people under felony indictment from buying firearms is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Texas has concluded, citing a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that significantly expanded gun rights.

U.S. District Judge David Counts, an appointee of Republican former President Donald Trump, reached that conclusion on Monday in dismissing a federal indictment against Jose Gomez Quiroz, who had been charged under the decades-old ban.

Counts cited the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in June declaring for the first time that the right to "keep and bear arms" under the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment protects a person's right to carry a handgun in public for self-defense.
 

To Corporate Media, Some Criminals and Victims Are More Equal Than Others

What will be at least as interesting, however, will be to see whether—and how—the corporate media covers the court proceedings in this case, given the political and ideological coloration of it.

The reflexive, yet entirely understandable, assumption in Republican and conservative circles is that it would get a lot more sympathetic ink and airtime—and furrowed-brow punditry—in the media were the situation reversed and a young, liberal Democrat had been the victim.

Will the corporate media give Brandt’s day in court the gavel-to-gavel coverage that they gave to the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, the teen charged with shooting three men—killing two—amid rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020?

Following-up our September 12 MRCTV report on credit card issuers VISA, MasterCard, and American Express buckling under pressure from public sector, political forces to adopt new “sales codes” for purchases made at gun shops, the Attorneys General of Montana and Tennessee are leading a total of 24 state Attorneys General to warn the CEOs of the corporate giants against the move.

As TN Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti and MT Attorney General Austin Knudsen report in their joint Sept. 20 press release, they are:
 

Bank Chiefs Grilled On Restricting Gun Sales Via Firearm-Specific Merchant Codes

All seven bank chiefs testifying before Congress on Thursday committed to upholding the Second Amendment by promising not to restrict sales of guns following the adoption of new firearm-specific transaction codes that have sparked concern over whether the tracking data might be used by payment processors to curb sales of guns and ammunition.

The CEOs made the pledge while responding to Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), who pressed the heads of America’s biggest retail banks for a commitment to protect and process all transactions for legal goods and services—including guns—in light of what he described as political pressure to legislate social policy through corporate boardrooms instead of through the democratic processes.

Dianna Muller and the 51 delegates of the DC Project visited Capitol Hill last week to meet with lawmakers and once again share its message that gun rights are human rights, culminating in a rally at the Supreme Court Building.

“This was our fifth fly-in and it was the most impactful trip we have experienced,” said Dianna Muller, the founder of the DC Project. “We built bridges by sharing our personal and emotional stories of violence while emphasizing solutions the firearms industry is spearheading in mental health, school safety and firearms education.”
 

Supreme Court's gun ruling opens door to next fight: Where can they be carried?

State laws prohibiting people from carrying firearms in "sensitive" locations are providing the foundation for the next battle involving the Second Amendment in the wake of a recent Supreme Court decision, with the question in the courts shifting from whether Americans can have guns at home or in public to where they can be carried.

Already, challenges to so-called sensitive place restrictions in New York and the District of Columbia have been filed, and more are expected to follow from gun rights supporters, who argue the measures keeping them from bringing guns into places like houses of worship, on college campuses and in public parks infringe on their right to keep and bear arms.

An official in Florida is apparently ready to take action against credit card companies who are intent on closely tracking gun and ammunition sales.

Florida's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced Wednesday that if Visa, MasterCard, and American Express all begin to separately categorize the sales of guns and ammunition, then come the start of the legislative session he will work with the state legislature to "pass a law penalizing businesses who are targeting the right to bear arms."

“As Bexar County District Attorney, my job is to protect public safety and decisions like this make that job exponentially more difficult. I hope this decision is overturned, as court decisions like this one make it nearly impossible to keep guns off of the streets,” Gonzales continued.

Gonzales and his Republican opponent appear to be on the same page about this issue. Marc LaHood said the ruling means “the danger level to residents of Bexar County is way up.”

“The reason this court decision is important, is because it is a matter of life and death. We can provide the names of those who were released and then committed murder already. This is not an academic question,” LaHood said.
 

Will the Federal Felon Gun Ban Fall?

Judge David Counts of the District of Western Texas ruled Monday that a provision in the Federal Firearms Act barring those under felony indictment from obtaining a firearm is not in line with the nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation. He also dismissed an indictment against Jose Gomez Quiroz, a Texas man charged under the ban.

“Although not exhaustive, the Court’s historical survey finds little evidence that § 922(n)—which prohibits those under felony indictment from obtaining a firearm—aligns with this Nation’s historical tradition,” Judge Counts, an Obama appointee who was reappointed and confirmed under Trump, wrote in his opinion.

Our small corner of the country garnered some unfortunate national attention because a 41-year-old man killed a teenager after a political dispute. There are so many unknowns it would be irresponsible to comment more on it; that’s not what this letter is about. Political commentator Jack Posobiec correctly pointed out that this man has not been charged with murder. Rob Port objects and says he was charged with vehicular homicide, then gives a sarcastic quip about the “Law & Order” TV show to say homicide and murder are the same thing.

That's not true.

More than two months after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down New York State’s “proper cause” requirement that was used for generations to deny carry licenses to untold numbers of people, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms says crime victims prevented from being legally armed deserve reparations for decades of disregard for their rights.

“A law found to be unconstitutional,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “was unconstitutional all along. Crime victims who were deprived of their most important right of self-defense under color of law deserve reparations. The state should compensate them, or their surviving families.”

A recent survey conducted by the University of Houston and Texas Southern University found that Texans overwhelmingly support tighter gun control.

Eight of 10 people surveyed said they supported a ban on gun ownership by anyone under a restraining order for stalking or domestic violence. About 78% of people said they were in favor of criminal background checks of gun buyers with no exception for gun shows or private sales. Most people surveyed, 74%, also said judges should be able to take guns away from people who are a threat to themselves or others. About 71% of people said they’d support raising the legal age for purchasing an assault rifle to 21, instead of the current age requirement of 18.

Much of the agenda relies on traditional conservative orthodoxy — support for tax cuts and reductions in government spending — but also weighs in on some divisive cultural issues. For example, Republicans pledge to support legislation to ensure "that only women can compete in women's sports" — which would seek to ban trans women from playing on women's sports teams. Republicans also broadly pledge to advance federal legislation to restrict abortion access promising to "protect the lives of unborn children and their mothers." The agenda also signals opposition to any legislation to restrict gun rights, pledging to "safeguard" the Second Amendment.
