by AWR Hawkins20 Apr 201571,454 On Friday, an Uber driver with a concealed carry permit thwarted an attempted mass shooting by pulling his own weapon and shooting a gunman who had opened fire in Chicago’s Logan Square. Illinois Assistant State’s Attorney Barry Quinn verified that the driver “had a concealed-carry permit and acted in the defense of himself and others.” According to the Chicago Tribune, the driver was watching “a group of people” walk in front of his car on North Milwaukee Avenue just before midnight when 22-year-old Everardo Custodio allegedly “began firing into the crowd.” The Uber driver pulled his own gun and “fired six ...

Mark Vicars, with shot of his weapons (NCPD) A Long Island man who was allegedly posing as a federal air marshal was arrested after cops say they found a loaded pistol and assault rifle in his car, along with other weapons. Mark Vicars, 49, was pulled over while driving on Jericho Turnpike in Syosset around 7:40 a.m. Thursday. Vicars, who activated police-style emergency lights on the dashboard of his car as the stop was happening, showed them a fake US Marshals shield and identification credentials (and a fake Marshals parking placard). Authorities found a .223 assault rifle, a loaded pistol, a knife, a tactical vest with three high-capacity magazines and body armor in the car. There ...

As President Obama prepares to lecture the American public about guns yet again, the statistics say that "gun violence" is on the decline and has been for some time -- even as private firearm ownership has soared: Premeditated mass shootings in public places are happening more often, some researchers say, plunging towns and cities into grief and riveting the attention of a horrified nation. In general, though, fewer Americans are dying as a result of gun violence — a shift that began about two decades ago. In 1993, there were seven homicides by firearm for every 100,000 Americans, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and ...

In part by forbidding almost all forms of firearm ownership, the country has as few as two gun-related homicides a year. I’ve heard it said that, if you take a walk around Waikiki, it’s only a matter of time until someone hands you a flyer of scantily clad women clutching handguns, overlaid with English and maybe Japanese text advertising one of the many local shooting ranges. The city’s largest, the Royal Hawaiian Shooting Club, advertises instructors fluent in Japanese, which is also the default language of its website. For years, this peculiar Hawaiian industry has explicitly targeted Japanese tourists, drawing them away from beaches and resorts into shopping malls, to do ...

Is it Time to Retire the Defensive Shotgun? By CTD Blogger published on November 24, 2015 in Firearms With the AR-15 crowned as the new reigning champ of semiautomatic rifles, there’s no doubt that the 5.56×45 is here to stay. These guns have never been cheaper, more reliable, or easier to customize. And the surging popularity of the defensive carbine has largely displaced the 12-gauge shotgun as the long gun of choice to keep handy for defense of hearth and home. The pump-action shotgun was at one time considered the first and only tool to reach for when things went bump in the night, but it definitely doesn’t have the monopoly on protective force anymore. So, is the ...

Do citizens (not police officers) with guns ever stop mass shootings?
Post Date: 2015-12-05 07:20:42 by buckeroo
3 Comments
Backers of laws that let pretty much all law-abiding people carry concealed guns in public places often argue that these laws will sometimes enable people to stop mass shootings. Opponents occasionally ask: If that’s so, what examples can one give of civilians armed with guns stopping such shootings? Sometimes, I hear people asking if even one such example can be found, or saying that they haven’t heard of even one such example. A while back I posted about a few examples, but since then there have been some more, so I thought I’d note them. Naturally, such examples will be rare. Even in states which allow concealed carry, there often aren’t people near a shooting who ...

Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are searching for motivations, including the vital question of how the murderers might have been connected to international terrorism.

How I Evolved on Guns During the Boston Manhunt [Full Thread]

How I Evolved on Guns During the Boston Manhunt By Paula Bolyard April 22, 2013 In the wee hours of Friday morning, April 19th, I evolved on guns. First, a confession: I’ve never owned a gun. I never wanted one in my home and, like a lot of moms, I wanted to raise non-violent children and thought keeping guns out of our home was one way to do that. When my kids were young, I didn’t want them to play with toy guns — in fact, I was rather insistent about it. Eventually, I realized that little boys will make guns out of just about anything — bananas, sticks, the dog’s paw, their fingers — nothing is safe from their imaginative minds. So I compromised and ...

One of the victims in the San Bernardino massacre is a former New Jersey man who verbally sparred about Israel two weeks ago with a man whom police have identified as one of the shooters, a friend of the victim said Thursday in a telephone interview. Nicholas Thalasinos, 52, a health inspector who moved from Cape May County 13 years ago, enjoyed arguing about politics with his co-workers, the friend, Kuuleme Stephens, said. Stephens, who lives in Arizona, said she called Thalasinos on his cellphone two weeks ago as he argued with a co-worker whom he identified as Syed Farook. Authorities have said a man named Syed Rizwan Farook, who worked at the San Bernardino County Health Department ...

JERUSALEM – There’s an entire country that would probably differ with the White House’s off-key assertion that gun control will help deter terrorists. The latest so-called wave of terror in Israel has been a case study in how guns actually stop jihadist attacks. So much so that the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat, asked residents with gun licenses to carry their weapons at all times. “If you check, you’ll see that in many cases, those who neutralized terrorists were citizens who aren’t necessarily police officers, like former soldiers,” he said. Last month, Israel eased restrictions on firearms possession across the country. The entire city of Jerusalem and ...

Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik -- the heavily armed couple who authorities say unleashed volleys of gunfire on a holiday party in San Bernardino -- had amassed an armory of weapons and explosives in their Redlands home, including a dozen pipe bombs and thousands of rounds of ammunition, officials said Thursday.The arsenal suggested a level of planning that added to investigators’ concern that Wednesday's shootings, which left 14 dead and 21 injured, were far more than a spontaneous response to a workplace dispute. “Certainly they were equipped and they could have continued to do another attack … we intercepted them,” San Bernardino police Chief Jarrod Burguan ...

For Robert Dear, Religion and Rage Before Planned Parenthood Attack

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The man she had married professed to be deeply religious. But after more than seven years with Robert L. Dear Jr., Barbara Micheau had come to see life with him as a kind of hell on earth. By January 1993, she had had enough. In a sworn affidavit as part of her divorce case, Ms. Micheau described Mr. Dear as a serial philanderer and a problem gambler, a man who kicked her, beat her head against the floor and fathered two children with other women while they were together. He found excuses for his transgressions, she said, in his idiosyncratic views on Christian eschatology and the nature of salvation.“He claims to be a Christian and is extremely evangelistic, ...

Conservatives' Planned Parenthood Response: Who Are You Calling a Radical Terrorist?

When the killer is a Christian, it seems, the rules are different. The right’s reaction to the deadly holiday weekend shootout at Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs—a white evangelical redoubt of a rapidly diversifying state—followed a predictable trajectory through what you might call the five stages of information loop closure. First, denial, reflected in a reactive counter-consensus that the shooter, Robert Lewis Dear, was actually a bank robber taking refuge, not a terrorist. Second, anger at anyone who dared suggest that an unhinged gunman might have taken the right’s dishonest anti-Planned Parenthood incitement campaign (remember this?) a bit too seriously. ...

Police say Robert Lewis Dear, 57, killed three people and left nine wounded. A search of public records finds that Dear had several run-ins with the law. The records show nine criminal filings under his name: Two "personal intrusion" — or peeping Tom or eavesdropping — charges that were later dropped and he was acquitted of two animal cruelty charges. With that, here's what other news organizations have turned up about Dear: — Dear 'Preferred to Be Left Alone' The New York Times ...

The day after a gunman killed three people and shot nine others at a Colorado Planned Parenthood office, officials tell NBC News a motive remains unclear, but say the suspect talked about politics and abortion. Robert Lewis Dear, a North Carolina native who was living in a trailer in Colorado, made statements to police Friday at the scene of the Colorado Springs clinic and in interviews that law enforcement sources described as rantings.

Several states including Tennessee, Montana and Colorado, Texas are currently considering bills that would allow law-abiding citizens to carry firearms without a permit. Constitutional or permitless carry, as it’s known, is already the law of the land in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Vermont and Wyoming. To the chagrin of gun-grabbers, none of those states with permitless concealed carry laws have descended into chaos. There is no widespread upheaval. There are no maundering hordes of armed miscreants. There appears to be no disruption to civilized society. Everything is pretty much as it was before the laws ...
