Three former Florida police officers were sent to prison this week after pleading guilty to their roles in a departmentwide conspiracy to frame people of color for crimes they did not commit.

A federal judge on Thursday sentenced Guillermo Ravelo, a 37-year-old former officer with the Biscayne Park Police Department, to 27 months behind bars, the Miami Herald reported. On Wednesday, former officers Charlie Dayoub, 38, and Raul Fernandez, 62, were sentenced to one year apiece after pleading guilty to making false arrests.

No. We have one of the strongest state constitutions when it comes to individual rights. But here comes the mob with another attempt to take those rights away. This would reclassify most of the most popular self-defense and sporting guns into “assault weapons”. 18-20 year olds can carry weapons for our military but not in our state?

It appears Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) forgot she represents the Show-Me State. Missouri’s nickname derives from its residents’ healthy skepticism – especially for politicians and their “frothy eloquence.” Rather than take someone’s word for something, Missourians would like to be shown.

Missouri voters across the political spectrum don’t like what they were shown this week. Hidden camera video from journalist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas showing that McCaskill and her staff have misled Missourians on her support for severe gun controls and impeaching President Donald Trump.

Designed to surpass U.S. Army requirements, the FN 509 Tactical handgun is now available for law enforcement and civilians too.

Among the giant combat vehicles, drones, laser weapons and helicopters at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exposition last week a number of smaller items also generated lots of buzz.

The FN 509 Tactical was getting a lot of interest at AUSA, which is the largest land warfare exhibition on the continent. There was a steady stream of American soldiers of all ages and ranks curious to see the weapon up close and get a first look.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today launched a seven-figure ad campaign to inform voters that Stacey Abrams supports an extreme gun-control agenda that would leave Georgians defenseless. The television ad, entitled Woman Working Late, will air on cable and broadcast stations.​

"Stacey Abrams' radical anti-gun agenda is dangerous," said Chris W. Cox, NRA-PVF Chairman. "She has led the fight for extreme gun control in the state legislature. If elected governor, she would work to enact policies that would leave law-abiding Georgians defenseless."

The retrial for a former Northern Arizona University student charged in a fatal shooting on the Flagstaff campus will move ahead as scheduled.

Steven Jones will be tried in March on murder and other charges in the October 2015 shooting.

The date had been postponed while the State Bar of Arizona investigated a conflict-of-interest allegation against two of Jones' attorneys. The State Bar said this week it did not find clear and convincing evidence of an ethical violation.

A group of gun enthusiasts, who created a ruckus when they showed up on the South Beach pier in June with handguns and rifles, plan another well-armed visit Saturday — but this time, Miami Beach police say they’ll be ready and accommodating.

Four months ago, when six members of Open Carry showed up at the pier on the south end of Miami Beach, startled fishermen and visitors contacted park rangers who notified police, and officers temporarily detained and disarmed the group before determining they were within their rights to carry weapons.
