TAKE ACTION – How YOU Can Push For The ” Big Ten” Gun Safety Measures

quote1a

TAKE ACTION:

The only way our laws will change is if people like YOU put pressure on our politicians in the U.S. Congress and State Senates.

Follow these simple steps:

Step 1) Find out who your US Senators and Representative are at http://www.opencongress.org/people/zipcodelookup

Step 2) Find out who your State Senator is from the State Senate website in your state.

Step 3) If possible, coordinate with your neighbors and friends in the area and all make contact on the same day or in the same week.

Step 4) Call, email and/or write to each of your representatives and ask which of the “Big Ten” gun safety measures they support:

  1. Do you support universal background checks, including in private sales? If not, why not?
  2. Do you support an assault weapons ban? If not, why not?
  3. Do you support mandatory child safety locks on all guns? If not, why not?
  4. Do you support mandatory safe gun storage laws, particularly if a household contains a minor or person adjudicated mentally ill? If not, why not?
  5. Do you support repealing the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which prevents victims from holding the gun industry to account? If not, why not?
  6. Do you support limiting magazine sizes to ensure law enforcement are not outgunned? If not, why not?
  7. Do you support mandatory duty of states to report persons with mental health issues to the Federal background check system? If not, why not?
  8. Do you support mandatory liability insurance for all gun owners? If not, why not?
  9. Do you support mandatory reporting by gun owners of lost or stolen guns? If not, why not?
  10. Do you support Smart Gun technology to ensure only approved adults can fire a weapon, as soon as the technology is state-of-the-art? If not, why not?

Step 5) Note down the answers you receive, share them with people in your area and, if possible, publish them to the web. Use #gunsense if posting to Twitter.

Step 6) Attend in-person meetings with your representatives and demand that they support these commonsense gun safety measures.

Thanks for reading and keep working for commonsense gun laws in America.

Every single minute you commit to this fight will prevent more Americans from experiencing that terrifying minute when gun violence erupts.

5 #Gunsense New Year Resolutions for 2014

Some of you reading this will have been fighting for #gunsense and commonsense gun laws for some time. Some will have just joined the fight. Welcome to everyone.

Some of you will have always been ‘political’. For some of you this will be the first time you’re getting directly involved in a political movement. We are all cynical about politicians and Congress, but something has made you take that decision to say “I MUST ACT”.

Perhaps the 6-year-olds murdered at Newtown was your defining moment. Perhaps you or a loved one have been directly affected by gun violence. Perhaps you are fed up with people telling you that thousands and thousands of Americans dying each year is just “collateral damage” and a “new normal”. Perhaps you are a gun owner who knows that commonsense regulation is needed and are fed up with the NRA’s extremist stance.

You are right not to accept this situation. You are right to no longer stay silent. You are right to take action. You are right to push your politicians.

Without you, the field is left to the special interests and lobbying firms of the gun industry.

Without you, the field is left to those who spread misinformation, fear and paranoia with the sole purpose of making more money from selling guns to whomever they can get away with.

Without you, more children and teenagers will die needlessly.

Without you, more children will cower in lockdown bathrooms, terrified as they cram themselves in during a living nightmare.

Without you, more women will be subjected to deadly domestic abuse.

Without you, America will continue to head to a very dark place.

But with you, things CAN and WILL change for the better.

Make 2014 the year when you take real and meaningful action.

Here are 5 #Gunsense New Year Resolutions – how many can you commit to and follow through on?

  1. I will contact my Senator(s) and State Senator(s) at least THREE times this year and demand that they support commonsense gun laws (such as the “Big Ten”).
  2. I will engage at least THREE friends or family members who currently do not support commonsense gun laws but who I think can be persuaded when given the facts.
  3. I will make a financial contribution in 2014 to an organization lobbying for commonsense gun laws (Unfortunately money really does matter when pushing politicians).
  4. If I have children, I will ask THREE fellow families if they have guns in the home and, if so, how they are stored.
  5. I will encourage at least FIVE friends or acquaintances to take meaningful action in 2014 (either by telling them about my actions or sharing these #gunsense resolutions).

These resolutions are all real and effective steps you can take this year to Continue reading

Why #Gunbullies Will Fail to Silence Commonsense Gun Owners, Moms and Newtown Parents

BYrJ4D1CcAAoXeN

In 2013 the extremism of #Gunbullies has hit a new high. This article reviews how they have tried to silence commonsense gun owners, Moms Demand Action, domestic abuse victims and even the Newtown parents – and why the #Gunbullies will ultimately fail.

#Gunbullies & Commonsense Gun Owners

In the December 2013 issue of Guns & Ammo magazine sanity and #gunsense broke out as Dick Metcalf wrote a column entitled “Let’s Talk Limits“. He was promptly fired along with the Editor of Guns & Ammo, after gun extremists attacked the publisher for daring to print a piece that promoted a commonsense conversation about gun safety.

Thaddeus Swierzewski

An Upper Bucks County man shot and killed his 59-year-old daughter and then turned the gun on himself Saturday night in Bucks County, according to District Attorney David Heckler.

Murder/Suicide – Ed Caddell (Cocoa, FL)

male

COCOA, Fla. —Two people were found dead in a home in Brevard County on Thursday.

Authorities said the bodies of 76-year-old Patricia Caddell and 89-year-old Ed Caddell were found in a home on Briarwood Court after the couple did not show up for a dinner engagement.

The couple had been married for 50 years.

Deputies said that people who knew the couple said that Ed Caddell, a veteran who served in the U.S. Navy, has had a decline in his health recently.

The preliminary investigation conducted by the Homicide Unit leads investigators to believe that the couple’s deaths were the result of a murder-suicide, a news release said.

Triple Shooting – James Garcia (Gilford, MI)

male

REESE — The Thumb area is grieving after a tragic shooting incident Thursday, July 4, that left two Reese residents dead.

An investigation is continuing into the deaths of Donnieca Ann Garcia, 54, and her husband James Edward Garcia, 53, who died at their 9980 Van Geisen Road home.

According to a press release from Tuscola County prosecuting attorney Mark Reene, it was determined that Donnieca Garcia died of a single gunshot wound inflicted “some period of hours” before Tuscola County Sheriff deputies responded to a 911 call at the Van Geisen Road home.

Deputies responded at around 4:13 p.m. Thursday after a family member said they stopped at the home and confronted their father who stated the mother was dead on the floor.

According to an autopsy report, James Garcia died of gunshot wounds received after he opened fire on two Tuscola County Sheriff deputies and one officer from the Caro Police Department, all of whom responded to the scene.

One sheriff deputy was shot by Garcia in his protective vest and was treated and released from Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw. All three officers returned fire after the initial shot by Garcia struck the Sheriff’s deputy.

SPRINGFIELD — A 22-year-old city man accused in a fatal shooting at a Federal Street apartment Thursday – described by police as an incident of domestic violence – denied murder and other charges at his arraignment in Hampden Superior Court Friday.

Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Man (Bethany, IL)

male

DECATUR — Testimony at the inquest hearing of Denise Robertson, a Bethany woman who was killed during a shooting incident that also left her husband severely injured, indicated that the 51-year-old woman may have shot her 66-year-old husband in the chest before claiming her own life at the couple’s home.

Illinois State Police special agent Douglas LeConte testified Wednesday at the Macon County Courts Facility that at 8:32 a.m. July 4, Michael Robertson made a 911 call to report that he had awoken and was bleeding from the chest but was unaware of what had happened.

“According to interviews with Mr. Robertson, after waking up to the sound of two loud bangs and seeing that he was bleeding from the chest, he called out for his wife, Denise,” LeConte said. “He then looked over and saw her (Denise Robertson) at the side of his bed where he’d been sleeping, and she turned around and walked out of the bedroom without speaking to him or attempting to render any aid.”

Killed – Daniel Fitton Jr. (Youngstown, OH)

Daniel Fitton Jr.

Daniel A. Fitton Jr., 30, fired once inside his apartment and once at police outside before two officers returned fire, killing him, authorities said.

Police were called about 8:40 p.m. Wednesday to the four-plex apartment at 817 Cook Ave. where Fitton lived with his girlfriend.

The woman’s daughter called 911, saying Fitton had a gun inside the apartment with her mother and two children. The daughter told the 911 dispatcher that Fitton was threatening to kill himself and threatening her mother.

“He’s been drinking,” the woman told the dispatcher. “This is over something stupid, over child support. He’s been going crazy all day.”

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Paul W McCombs (Cragsmoor, NY)

Paul W McCombs

CRAGSMOOR, N.Y. — A woman killed her husband with two gunshots to the head and then died after taking pills, the Ulster County Sheriff’s Office said on Thursday.

Undersheriff Frank Faluotico said the case was being treated as a murder-suicide.

The Sheriff’s Office said deputies went to 40 Dellenbaugh Road in the Wawarsing hamlet of Cragsmoor at 7:32 p.m. Wednesday after being told neither Paul W. McCombs, 62, nor Sharon K. McCombs, 61, had been heard from in more than 24 hours.

Faluotico said a family member who was not in the area asked authorities to check on the McCombs. He said the couple lived alone and were found dead in a rear bedroom of the single-story, ranch-style home.

The preliminary investigation, according to a Sheriff’s Office report, found Mrs. McCombs shot her husband twice in the head with a small-caliber handgun and then died after ingesting an undetermined amount of prescription medication.

Triple Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Police Officer (Calais, ME)

male

CALAIS — Maine’s attorney general says it was reasonable for two police officers to believe they had to use deadly force in a July domestic violence-related shooting in Calais.

Police shot 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at his home on July 3. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca. The woman was fleeing with her son.

Pinney later died; an autopsy showed he was struck twice in the chest and once in the arm by bullets fired from one of the officers, but that he actually killed himself, firing a gun at his head.

Sherrard and the baby recovered from their wounds.

CALAIS, Maine (AP) — State police said a shooting in the eastern Maine town of Calais left one man dead and a woman and baby wounded.

Police said the shooting Wednesday evening was an act of domestic violence.

Police said officers shot and killed 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at a home on Main Street. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca.

Sherrard is undergoing treatment for serious gunshot wounds at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The baby also was being treated for a gunshot wound to the foot.

A police officer was grazed by a bullet but is expected to make a full recovery.

State police and the Maine attorney general’s office are investigating the shooting.

Triple Attempted Murder/Suicide – Wounded – Baby (Calais, ME)

male

CALAIS — Maine’s attorney general says it was reasonable for two police officers to believe they had to use deadly force in a July domestic violence-related shooting in Calais.

Police shot 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at his home on July 3. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca. The woman was fleeing with her son.

Pinney later died; an autopsy showed he was struck twice in the chest and once in the arm by bullets fired from one of the officers, but that he actually killed himself, firing a gun at his head.

Sherrard and the baby recovered from their wounds.

CALAIS, Maine (AP) — State police said a shooting in the eastern Maine town of Calais left one man dead and a woman and baby wounded.

Police said the shooting Wednesday evening was an act of domestic violence.

Police said officers shot and killed 26-year-old Daniel Pinney shortly after arriving at a home on Main Street. They said Pinney had shot 21-year-old Megan Sherrard and their 6-week-old son, Luca.

Sherrard is undergoing treatment for serious gunshot wounds at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. The baby also was being treated for a gunshot wound to the foot.

A police officer was grazed by a bullet but is expected to make a full recovery.

State police and the Maine attorney general’s office are investigating the shooting.

Murder/Suicide – Dominic Moses Moore (Denver, CO)

Dominic Moses Moore

Denver police were relieved to find three children who were reported missing Wednesday safe from harm, but they were still trying to learn why a man killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

Officers called to the Green Valley Ranch home at about 10:30 p.m. Tuesday found the man’s wife dead and the children, who should have been there, missing.

The man was also gone, fleeing police in a white 2000 Chrysler Cirrus.

Denver police said that information prompted them to issue an Amber Alert for the children, ages 15, 5 and 18 months, about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.

They abandoned the alert at about 7 a.m. after the children were found safe and the man, identified as Dominic Moses Moore, 32, was discovered dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the Chrysler near Franktown.

The Denver medical examiner’s office did not release the woman’s name or cause of death, but police said she was Moore’s wife. Detectives were still trying to unravel the couple’s relationship to the children but said they all lived together.

DENVER – The mother found dead on Tuesday night, sparking an AMBER Alert, died from multiple injuries due to an assault, according to the Denver coroner.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Donna Sanford (Grand Prairie, TX)

Donna Sanford

GRAND PRAIRIE –– A man and a woman in their 60s were found shot dead Monday night at a home in Grand Prairie.

Grand Prairie Police say they received a call from a woman around 6:40 p.m. Monday night. The woman gave the call taker her location, but the line disconnected soon after.

When authorities arrived on the scene, there was no answer at the front door. They then entered the home through the partially open garage and found Donna Sanford, 61, and Tommy Esquibel, 62, dead from gunshot wounds.

FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Fort Worth police confirmed Tuesday that all three victims of a July 1 shooting are dead and the person believed responsible for the crime is in custody.

The shooting happened late Monday afternoon in the 2900 block of Pate Drive.

A 39-year-old woman and 21-year-old pregnant woman, whose names have not been released, were both killed, along with a 10-year-old boy now identified as Eddie McCuin. The 21-year-old woman was believed to be about eight months pregnant. Hospital workers were also unable to save her unborn child.

The victims were transported to three different hospitals and pronounced dead at three different times.

Tuesday morning Fort Worth police charged 22-year-old Amos Wells, who police confirm is the father of the unborn child, with Capital Murder in connection with the case. He is being held on a $2,000,000 bond.

Family members were grappling to understand Tuesday what prompted the shootings of Chanice Reed, 22, who was expecting the couple’s first child, as well as her mother, Annette Reed, and 10-year-old brother, Eddie McCuin.

Amos Wells III, 22, reportedly walked into a police station on July 1, saying he “did something bad.” It was about an hour after he arrived at the Fort Worth, Texas home of his girlfriend Chanice Reed, who was due to give birth to their son in about a month, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Police say he shot Reed’s 39-year-old mother Annette Reed at about 6:15 p.m. during a confrontation in the yard, family members of the victims said to station KXAS. Then, Wells allegedly shot his girlfriend several times at her front door.

Eddie McCuin, 10, was Wells’ last victim. The boy was shot three times, relatives told KXAS.

BELLEVUE, KY (FOX19) -
A man is being held at the Campbell County Detention Center, accused of murdering his brother.

Police were called to the 100 block of Ward Avenue at around 12:30 a.m. on Monday morning on a report of a shooting.
