BREAKING :
The survivors of the Rancho Tehama shooting are suing the industry that they say allowed Kevin Neal to kill five people, and injure 18 others. After a domestic violence arrest, Neal was banned from having guns. So he built his murder weapons -- two homemade AR-15 style rifles called ghost guns. So-called ghost gun companies sell parts that can be assembled into these weapons. As long as those parts are 80% complete or less... normal gun laws do not apply.Moments after firing a gun for the first time, Alicea Burton proudly displayed the result of her marksmanship: a human silhouette target perforated with more than two dozen 9 mm holes.On the third anniversary of the tragic February 2018 school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, President Joe Biden issued his administration’s first significant push for new gun control measures.It’s widely understood that the current occupants of the White House, the Biden-Harris Administration, have positioned themselves as the most anti-gun team this country has ever seen on Pennsylvania Avenue. Leading up to the 2020 election, NRA made abundantly clear the threats these two presented to law-abiding gun owners, and both the President and Vice President spelled out how deeply opposed they each are to the fundamental right to purchase, possess, and carry firearms for personal protection.TN Gov. Bill Lee is renewing his push to allow handguns to be carried in public without a permit, and local law enforcement leaders are pushing back with renewed opposition. Lee announced during his recent State of the State address that he will push again for the legislation, which failed to make it through the Tennessee General Assembly’s COVID-shortened session last year.

PA – GUN CRIME – To Combat Philadelphia Gun Violence, We Must Dismantle the Office of Violence Prevention

At this point, to describe our city as a broken record in how it responds to gun violence would be an understatement. Here’s how it usually goes: Philadelphians get shot. The media reports how it’s an unprecedented moment. Social media demands more action from the city. Officials conduct hearings, task force meetings and tearful rallies without much else to offer … and the shit repeats itself. Philadelphia is now second only to Chicago in the number of homicides this year. As we head into the fall, more than 300 people have been killed so far in 2020 —the highest tally at this point in 13 years. Most of the victims are Black men, and most of the shootings are taking place in the most impoverished parts of the city. Two years ago, Mayor Jim Kenney declared rampant gun violence a public health crisis. He had previously instituted what was supposed to be the city’s best idea for combating the carnage outside of law enforcement: the Office of Violence Prevention (OVP). Established in 2017 and currently operating with a budget of $9.5 million a year, OVP was supposed to implement various initiatives to help reduce the rate of gun violence in Philadelphia. Three years later, the office continues to lack the necessary data, details and urgency required to be taken seriously. This summer, I attended several of the virtual City Council emergency hearings that were intended to unpack some of the current efforts to address increasing gun violence. Like me, Councilmembers weren’t impressed with the responses by senior leadership running the OVP.  [full article]
