1 in 12 on Bloomberg’s gun victims list are crime suspects
1 in 12 on Bloomberg’s gun victims list are crime suspects - A preliminary analysis of the list of shooting “victims” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is reading at rallies for new gun control laws finds that one in 12 are crime suspects killed by police or armed citizens acting in self-defense. The review of 617 killings found that 50 were suspects in crimes ranging from assault to murder, not the type of violence Bloomberg’s group suggests in its “No More Names” campaign to draw attention to the estimated 6,000 gun death “tragedies” since the mid-December Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newton, Conn.

Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg's Anti-Gun Movement
Boston Bomber Memorialized as Gun Victim by Bloomberg's Anti-Gun Movement - An event held yesterday in Concord, New Hampshire by out-of-state supporters of Mike Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns movement turned ugly when a 2nd Amendment activist (who was protesting the event) was arrested. But buried in the Union Leader story was an arguably more interesting nugget. During the rally, supporters of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns read the names of those “killed with guns” since the Dec. 14 Newtown shootings — and Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s name was memorialized among the names of the dead. (Tsarnaev, of course, was killed in a police shootout.)

Advocates make the case for rifles in Livingston County
Advocates make the case for rifles in Livingston County - Hunting incident investigator Michael L. Van Durme presented the case for allowing rifle hunting of bear and deer in Livingston County at a Monday evening meeting at Highway Department headquarters in Hampton Corners. Van Durme and others made a scientific and statistical case that the local prohibition against centerfire rifle hunting of bear and deer should be loosened in the interest of safety. Calling upon incident reports and his personal experience, Van Durme argued that rifle hunting is probably safer than shotgun hunting.
