FBI: Gunman charged in Charleston church massacre shouldn’t have been able to get gun

WASHINGTON — The gunman charged in the Charleston, South Carolina, church massacre should not been allowed to purchase the weapon used in the attack, FBI Director James Comey said Friday as he outlined a series of missed opportunities and incomplete paperwork that allowed the transaction to take place.

The problem stemmed from an arrest of Dylann Roof in South Carolina weeks before the shooting in which police say he admitted to possessing illegal drugs.

Under federal rules, that admission alone should have been enough to disqualify him from an April gun purchase. But, Comey said, the FBI background check examiner who evaluated Roof's request to buy a gun never saw the arrest report

Ms Bell's family told BBC Scotland that they were angry and disgusted with the police's handling of the case.

Mistakes in Dylann Roof's Background Check Fuel Gun Law Debate

The errors that led to accused Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof purchasing a gun even though he faced drug charges fueled both sides of the debate over stricter gun laws Friday.
On Wednesday, two days before the FBI said Roof should not have been allowed to buy the gun he allegedly used to gun down nine church parishioners, those victims' families rallied on Capitol Hill for a bill that would expand background checks on would-be gun buyers. ...
Others who don't want stricter gun laws might use Roof's illegal purchase of a gun to argue that NICS doesn't work and therefore shouldn't be expanded ...

Multiple South Carolina lawmakers are having discussions with City of Columbia, S.C. officials over the constitutionality and legality of a recently enacted emergency weapons ban around the S.C. State House.

As we reported this week, Columbia city council passed an “emergency ordinance” banning firearms and other unspecified “dangerous weapons” within 250 feet of the grounds of the S.C. State House, which is where the Confederate flag controversy has been raging.

It has been two years since Illinois passed a law allowing residents to carry concealed firearms in public. But the battle over who gets to carry a loaded gun and where they can take it is far from being settled.

Gov. Bruce Rauner signed a bill on Friday making the first changes in the concealed carry law since it was enacted two years ago. Though the bill was aimed at addressing immediate issues with the law, its passage in the Illinois House and Senate signaled the start of a fresh debate in the General Assembly over what should been added to the law and what should be removed from it.

Hayes pointed to timidity about guns that he’s noticed in the Black community.

“The negative stigma placed on firearms ownership through media brainwashing is definitely a hindrance to educating people, he said. “The media has convinced the African-American community that there is such a thing as “Black-on-Black” crime, and that the root cause of it is guns.

“The reality is that Black-on-Black crime is no more of an issue than crimes perpetrated against Asians, Hispanics and Whites,” he explained.

A month ago a Reddit community member using the handle Greeneyedlatinguy asked a very provocative question of his fellow Redditors.

Redditors who have had to kill in self defense, Did you ever recover psychologically? What is it to live knowing you killed someone regardless you didn’t want to do it?

The responses to the question from people all over the world are as riveting, as they are varied. Some of the attacks were home invasions. Some were robberies. Some were rapes, or attempted rapes. One was a man who gave shelter to a battered spouse when her violent husband attacked.

Now, Steele said, investigators need time to review the case. "It's a little different than others, based upon the circumstances," Steele said.

The shooting might have been justified under a Pennsylvania law allowing the use of force by private citizens making arrests, said Jules Epstein, a Temple University law professor.

"Assuming this gentleman is telling the truth, then it may be that he is not in the wrong legally," Epstein said.
The law, passed in 1980, states that in a citizen's arrest, force - even deadly force - can be used if "such force is necessary to prevent death or serious bodily injury to himself or another."
 

3 Arguments In Favor of Back-up Guns

Some self-defense enthusiasts have opined in the blogosphere that modern semi-automatic pistols, with magazine capacities of 15 rounds or more, have done away with the need to carry spare magazines filled with extra ammunition, let alone packing or staging a back-up gun of one type or another. I, on the other hand, still side with “Uncle Mas” who also taught that if someone needs one gun, they probably need two guns. Here are just a few of the arguments in favor of back-up guns for home defense and concealed carry:

A tired millionaire recluse who wants to be President of the United States has decided that she needs to run to the left of socialist candidate Bernie Sanders in order to claim the Democrat Party nomination.

Her chosen path to outflank Sanders and to energize the radical left is to pledge to attack the self defense rights of American citizens.

The retired contractor who was the target of a home invasion in San Leandro California had bad feet and could barely walk without assistance, according to his neighbor. That didn’t keep him from wielding a shotgun to defend his home and spouse against at least two and as many as four armed home invaders.

It’s too bad that he didn’t remember to load it first.

In a case that started with a tourist brandishing a gun during a traffic dispute, the Florida Supreme Court on Thursday said people who use the state’s controversial “stand your ground” legal defense have the burden of proving they should be shielded from prosecution.

The 5-2 ruling dealt with a key part of the way the state has carried out the “stand your ground” law, which in part provides immunity to people who use justifiable force in self-defense.

On July 14, the First District Court of Appeal is scheduled to hear an appeal filed by Florida Carry Inc., which says people have a legal right to possess firearms in their homes, including in university housing.

An Alachua County circuit judge last year sided with the University of Florida in rejecting the group’s arguments in the case.

In court briefs, Florida Carry cited a state law that seeks to ensure people can have firearms in their homes, and to the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment. It said the state law about guns in homes supersedes another law that generally bars guns at schools and colleges.

The Seattle City Council is expected to take up an ill-advised proposal that will impose a $25 tax on each firearm and a nickel tax on every round of ammunition sold by a retailer in Seattle. Proposed by anti-gun Council President Tim Burgess, the so-called “Gun Violence Tax” ordinance will have no effect on decreasing gun violence. It is designed to place a huge burden on legitimate firearms retailers and law-abiding gun owners. The City Council is expected to take up the proposed ordinance next Wednesday, July 15.

For gun purchases, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives dropped over 94 percent of “initial denials” after just the first preliminary review. The annual National Instant Criminal Background Check System report explains that these cases were dropped either because the additional information showed that the wrong people had been stopped or because the covered offenses were so many decades old that the government decided not to prosecute. At least a fifth of the remaining 6 percent were still false positives.

Despite wide opposition from university presidents, faculty and student organizations, Gov. Greg Abbott last month signed into law the campus carry bill that will allow concealed weapons on campus. This is not surprising. This is Texas, after all.

But now, while already dealing with issues of underfunding, faculty stretched thin and adjuncts who are paid unlivable wages, and students who are taking on so many loans we are just waiting for the bubble to burst, now, amid dealing with actual issues of higher education, administrators must also set aside time and space to meet with faculty and students to determine where the gun-free zones on campus will be.

My choices were all based on personal preference and price. Where I could get a good deal from various online or local retailers, I jumped at it. Cost savings was important to me; I’m on a budget, but I also wanted quality gear.

There are many great companies putting quality tactical gear on the market and there are a few putting poor quality gear out there too. Of course, I steered away from parts that didn’t meet anybody’s expectations.
