Police said Sunday that Biando had first fired a shotgun at a 29-year-old man who was living in the same flat. Police declined to name the younger man. They said he was unarmed when he was hit by a blast from the shotgun, got a handgun and shot Biando more than once. The younger man is hospitalized but is expected to live.

As of Sunday, police were not characterizing the shooting as a criminal homicide. Prosecutors will likely review the case and determine whether to charge anyone or rule the incident a justifiable homicide.

Workers say it all started when the suspect tried to steal something. The suspect and clerk started fighting. The clerk grabbed a baseball bat trying to fend off the suspect. The clerk says the suspect left and came back with a gun.

The suspect approached the clerk at the counter with that gun. That's when the clerk got his gun.

As the suspect left he started shooting at the clerk. The clerk stuck his arm out a doorway with his gun and started shooting back.

The clerk says he fired 12 shots in self defense.

By Larry Pratt

April 16 is the anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre. We are certain to hear about the need to keep guns out of the hands of bad guys. Of course, that means more gun control.

Schools are generally gun free zones by law. There are exceptions, the biggest being all of Utah's state-run universities. No school shootings have occurred in that state. But the multiple killings that have occurred at various schools around the country have all taken place in areas which have been legally rendered as gun free zones.

WASHINGTON - Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest seller of firearms, announced Monday it will toughen rules for gun sales, from storing video of purchases to creating an internal log of which guns they sell that are later used in crimes.

J.P. Suarez, the chief compliance officer for Wal-Mart Stores Inc., appeared with outspoken gun control advocate Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York to announce the changes at a gathering of Bloomberg’s group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

The retailer said it will develop a first-of-its-kind computerized crime gun trace log that will flag purchases by customers who have previously bought guns later recovered in crimes.

"Wal-Mart currently uses a strong point of sale system," said J.P. Suarez, senior vice president and chief compliance officer of Wal-Mart. "This code is a way for us to fine-tune the things we're already doing and further strengthen our standards. We hope other retailers will join us."

Tonight, a group of about 20 D.C.-area libertarians headed down to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial...To ring in Jefferson’s birthday, we would meet on the steps of the memorial at 11:55pm, wearing iPods, then dance for about 10 minutes, capture the whole thing on video, and leave.

The National Park Police broke the whole thing up just a few minutes in, punctuating their lack of a sense of humor by arresting one of the dancers... She was cuffed, taken out to a paddy wagon, then booked and held at a Park Police station. Everyone I spoke with says there was no noise, there were no threats, and no laws broken...

"A Constitution, being derived from a superior authority, is to be expounded and obeyed, not controlled or varied by the subordinate authority of a legislature. A law, on the other hand, resting on no higher authority than that possesses by every successive legislature, its expediency, as well as its meaning, is within the scope of the letter...."

"...The defence of one’s self, justly called the primary law of nature, is not, nor can it be abrogated by any regulation of municipal law...."

Menino of Boston, Mayor Phil Amicone of Yonkers, and representatives from 60 other cities in attending the 2008 Mayors Against Illegal Guns National Summit on Monday, April 14th at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC. “The prevalence of illegal guns on the streets of our cities is unacceptable to us all,” said Mayor Young. “I am honored to be a part of this effort to eliminate these dangerous weapons. With every gun removed, we save a life.”
 

Firearms Training For Your Family

As you might suspect, I talk about firearms training with a lot of different people in the law enforcement community. Some of the conversations take off in directions that still manage to surprise me. I have been at this long enough to accept that many police officers see their firearms and the attached training as just a necessary part of the job. For some it is even an unpleasant part, and they are certainly not "gun people". Others are more interested in firearms and take the time to become more knowledgeable and skilled in their use than the requirements of their agency. In other words, there is a broad spectrum of interest in firearms within the law enforcement community.

Relying on a state law that makes applications for concealed weapon permits confidential, Washoe County Sheriff Mike Haley has steadfastly refused to discuss the flawed handling of Gov. Jim Gibbons' gun permit. Haley has declined to provide information on the status of Gibbons' concealed weapons permit, which the governor temporarily surrendered earlier this year when it was discovered he hadn't completed the legally required training for each of the nine handguns he is allowed to carry.
 

At State Level, More Attempts to Limit Guns

State lawmakers across the country are ramping up efforts to pass new restrictions on guns, following nearly a decade in which state legislative efforts have been dominated by gun advocates.
Much of the proposed legislation — some 38 states are considering gun-related bills — focuses on cutting off gun access to convicted criminals and the mentally ill and on improving methods to trace guns used in crimes.
Underlying many of the proposals is an effort to redefine the gun debate as a law enforcement issue, rather than one that focuses on broad-based gun ownership, to sidestep prickly Second Amendment concerns.





 

NY: Firearms Training Simulator gives police recruits experience with guns in tough situations

When a police academy recruit who had not yet been trained in officer survival procedures made a routine border patrol traffic stop in the Ulster Business Resource Center's recently obtained Firearms Training Simulator, a man got out of his car and quickly approached. The recruit instructed the man to stop, but he would not. The man reached back with a clenched fist, poised to strike. The recruit responded by firing a single round into his assailant, mortally wounding him. "Not much for fist fights?" inquired the Ulster town police Lt. Matthew Taggard, smirking. Obviously, said Taggard, who was running the simulation with a computer, the recruit would not have been justified in using deadly force if that scenario occurred to real life.

“We don’t get bogged down and looking back – we’re always looking forward,” she said, as heavy applause nearly drowned out her words. “Whatever obstacle we see, we get over it. Whatever challenge we have, we meet it. We’re the problem-solvers, we’re the innovators, we’re the people who make the better future.”

“I disagree with Senator Obama’s assertion that people in our country cling to guns and have certain attitudes about immigration or trade simply out of frustration,” she said."'

"She described herself as a pro-gun churchgoer, recalling that her father taught her how to shoot a gun when she was a young girl and said that her faith “is the faith of my parents and my grandparents.”

Roiling the confused Pennsylvania waters a bit more, Mayor Bloomberg announces a national buy for an ad by his group Mayors Against Illegal Guns that tries to hold the feet of all three candidates -- Clinton, Obama, McCain -- to the fire on pledges to close the "gun show loophole." It features clips of each candidate pledging to close the loophole, then clips of a mayor who supports each candidate chiming in about the need to close it. Then Bloomberg, labeled as an "undecided voter," closes the ad by asking, "So with all the talk of bipartisanship, why can't they work together now to pass it."

The Associated Press cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be considered pro-gun or the propaganda arm of the "gun lobby." For example, in 2006 the AP implied that the NRA was responsible for the increase in violent crime begun in 2004.

After the shooting at Virginia Tech almost a year ago, UW-Madison students banded together to form the UW-Madison chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. With increased campus safety as its main goal, the group’s cause is certainly admirable. However, increasing the presence of guns on campus is not likely going to solve any of our safety problems. In fact, allowing people to carry concealed weapons could lead to more issues of safety on campus.

A state lawmaker is poised to introduce a bill that would require all new pistols sold in New York to be equipped with microstamping technology, a means of tracing pistols the firearms industry opposes. The bill will likely be introduced this week by state Senator Martin Golden, who has been working closely with city officials over the past several weeks to iron out the language of the legislation, an aide to the Brooklyn Republican said. Mayor Bloomberg, a proponent of microstamping, said in his State of the City address in January that he would push for mandating the technology.
