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.

Killed – Charles Walls (Indianapolis, IN)

Charles Walls

Lastly, Charles Walls Sr., 58, was killed inside the Pleasant Springs apartment complex around 11:45 p.m..

“They don’t have any leads. They said they have a person that fled, but no description,” said Charles Walls Jr.

The family of Charles Walls Sr. visited the neighborhood where their loved one was found Tuesday. Charles Walls Sr. was found off the 1000 block of Henslow Lane.

Updated: Aug 09, 2013 5:20 PM EDT

Indianapolis Metro Police shot and killed a carjacking suspect in an alley near the 2700 block of Barth and Manker, south of Garfield Park early Friday morning.

The man was identified as Brent Walls, 21, of Indianapolis. His family has been notified.

Police say at approximately 1:30 a.m. a woman was unloading groceries in her driveway in the 2500 block of Shelby when a man approached and tried to rob her and take her car.

She resisted, and he fired a shot through her car window before running away.

“He was smaller than me,” said victim Cassidy Frye.

Police set up a perimeter and a K-9 located the suspected carjacker hiding under a trash pile around 2:30 a.m.

The suspect was ordered to surrender but did not comply. After the K-9 unit was sent in and attempting to make apprehension, the suspect pointed a gun at an officer.

The officer shot and killed the suspect. Police called the 21-year-old desperate and dangerous.

“That’s why we had to make sure we found him tonight and, unfortunately, he made a bad decision and it cost him his life,” said IMPD Lt. Chris Bailey.

Department of Correction records show Walls spent more than two of the past four years in jail or prison. In June, his father, Charles Walls, was shot to death. His murder remains unsolved.

An acquaintance emailed me Monday night, after police announced that former Manual High School student Brent Walls had likely shot and killed his father, Charles, a few weeks before he too was shot and killed.

Killed – Crystal Anderson (Pahokee, FL)

Crystal Anderson

While searching for a mother whose car was found abandoned just miles away from her place of work, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s detectives are also investigating the murder of a woman who babysat the missing woman’s children.

A sheriff’s spokeswoman said Tuesday that the cases are not related. However, documents obtained by the Palm Beach Post on Tuesday show they may be connected.

Deborah Ann Jessie, 23, was last seen at a friend’s home in Pahokee on Sunday afternoon. By Tuesday morning, sheriff’s deputies found her car abandoned at the Palm Beach Golf Center at 7700 Military Trail in Riviera Beach, which is two miles away from The Family Dollar, where Jessie works.

It was not immediately known where Jessie’s children are, however, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said they are not in danger.

“Jessie was in the process of gaining a Domestic Violence Injunction against a former boyfriend,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Teri Barbera wrote. “Detectives are extremely concerned for her safety.”

ORIGINAL POST: The 30-year-old Pahokee man who investigators arrested on a battery charge keeping him in jail while Palm Beach County Sheriff’s detectives worked a missing persons case and a death investigation has been indicted for the two Pahokee women’s murders.

A Palm Beach County grand jury today indicted Jammy Washington on two counts of first-degree murder. Detectives believe he killed Deborah Ann Jessie, 23, and her children’s babysitter Crystal Anderson, 57.

Jessie was last seen June 23 at a friend’s house in Pahokee. Anderson was found shot to death at her Pahokee home June 24.

Double Murder/Suicide – James Buchanan (Peyton, CO)

male

For more than 40 miles and across two counties, El Paso County deputies chased after a man as he sped away from the Peyton home where two bodies were discovered on June 24.

When deputies finally caught up to the man in Lincoln County, he crashed his car–and shot himself.

The chase began Monday afternoon after the Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call regarding a possible shooting on the 19000 block of Oasis Avenue, near Peyton Highway and Judge Orr Road. The call was received after police say the alleged suspect, now identified as James Buchanan, 53, called an out-of-state relative to tell them he had shot and killed his own wife and his mother.

When deputies arrived on scene, they found two dead women inside the home–and saw James Buchanan drive off. Those women were later identified as the man’s wife, Annetta Buchanan, 50, and his mother, Grace Buchanan, 89.

The El Paso County Coroner’s Office conducted autopsies on Annetta and Grace Buchanan and determined the cause of death for both women was a gunshot wound. Their deaths have been deemed a homicide.

An autopsy on James Buchanan confirmed he also died from a gunshot wound. His manner of death has been ruled a suicide.

According to investigations, officers were called to 19870 Oasis Avenue at 4:15 p.m. on a report of a shooting.

Killed – Joe Hays (Birmingham, AL)

male

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Authorities today released the identity of a man fatally shot Monday afternoon inside his South East Lake home.

The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office today identified the victim as Joe Hays, 36. Hays was shot to death about 2 p.m. at 636 84th Street South.

Hays’ wife called police to report that she had shot her husband. When police arrived, they found him dead in the rear of the house. Police Chief A.C. Roper said there were two children inside the home at the time of the shooting. One of them was 17-months old.

Authorities said the shooting followed an argument between the couple over the daughter’s dedication at church the previous day. Hays, they said, became angry when he learned the girl had been dedicated and he didn’t know about it.

The wife was taken into custody for questioning. Efforts to reach Birmingham police today to find out the status of her detention were unsuccessful. Authorities said the woman claimed the shooting was accidental. Her name has not been released.

Killed – Carey Sullivan (Manitowoc, WI)

Carey Sullivan

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) – The District Attorney’s office in Manitowoc County will not be pressing charges against a 62-year-old man who shot and killed his brother in June.

Robert Sullivan called 911 on June 23rd and told dispatchers he had just shot 65-year-old Carey Sullivan with a shotgun at close range.

The shooting happened during a heated argument over control of their family’s estate.  It was the last argument of many the two brothers had over several years after their parents death.

Robert had been living at his deceased parents’ house for about seven years, and Carey had recently moved in.

Police had numerous run-ins with the brothers because of disagreements and tensions appeared to be rising between the brothers.

Investigators say Carey had a history of threatening and aggressive behavior, while Robert did not.

Jack Alexander Bridges1

The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a double homicide/suicide that began as a domestic dispute before 7 a.m. Sunday morning.

Lt. Bryan Taylor with the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office says 20-year-old Marc Antonio Reyes shot and killed his estranged girlfriend and another man who was in her house at the time.

Police have identified Reyes’ former girlfriend as 19-year-old Kayla Ann Lewis and the other man as 17-year-old Jack Alexander Bridges.

The shootings took place at Lewis’ mobile home in the 1800 block of 114th street.

Records show that Lewis had a temporary restraining order against Reyes at the time of the murders. The restraining order was in the interest of the estranged couple’s 5-month-old daughter, Autumn Blaize Reyes.

Witnesses say Reyes took his daughter from the scene of the shooting and brought her to his mother’s house in the 4300 block of 42nd Street where he then shot and killed himself.

Police say the baby was unharmed and is now in the care of Child Protective Services.

Killed – Rachel Harrington (Memphis, TN)

female

MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) – Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies have a suspect in custody following the fatal shooting of a mother and the kidnapping of her daughter from their home in East Memphis Sunday morning.

Deputies say shots were fired at a home on Barkshire Drive early Sunday morning.

The homeowner, 41-year-old Rachel Harrington, was killed and her daughter was kidnapped.

According to Shelby County Sheriff’s spokesperson Chip Washington, “When we arrived on the scene we found an individual in the house we believe to be the victim’s mother had been shot and we believe that the estranged boyfriend shot her.”

Investigators identified that boyfriend as 26-year-old Brandon Lee Spicer, who has also gone by the name Brandon Banks. Officers say he recently broke up with 25-year-old Tyranny Boyd.

Around 5 Sunday morning, Boyd called the sheriff’s office and said that her ex was trying to break into her house.

Deputies say that the bedroom window on the house is apparently where the suspect tried to break in. The screen has been torn off and there’s debris on the ground.

Investigators say after getting into the home Spicer shot and killed Boyd’s mother. He killed two of the family’s dogs as well, and then kidnapped Boyd at gunpoint.

Deputies put out an all points bulletin for Spicer. After about 8 hours on the run, Boyd was able to call a relative and tell them where her ex was keeping her.

Minutes later SWAT officers found them at The Trails Apartment complex located at Mt. Moriah and Kirby Parkway and arrested Spicer. Spicer is now locked up at the CJC facing murder and kidnapping charges.

His ex-girlfriend, Tyranny Boyd, was not hurt.

Killed – Corey Hill (Syracuse, NY)

Corey Hill

Syracuse, NY — A man was killed by a co-worker’s husband Sunday after escorting her home because she feared her spouse, Syracuse police said Monday.

The husband, George Alfred Jr., shot and killed Corey Hill inside 128 Steuben St, police said. He then kidnapped his wife Tanya Alfred, driving her to Pennsylvania, according to police.

He says that Hill agreed to escort Alfred home from a bar early Sunday morning and was confronted at about 3 a.m. by George Alfred Jr.

Killed – John Lumpkins (Harrisburg, PA)

John Lumpkins

Harrisburg police identified the man shot and killed after a fight outside a downtown bar Saturday night as 53-year-old Harrisburg resident John Lumpkins.

Lumpkins, of Harrisburg, was found in the roadway outside the Pub Bar at Dewberry and Blackberry streets at 11:40 p.m. with a single gunshot wound to his upper chest, according to a Harrisburg police press release issued Monday. He was quickly loaded into an ambulance and taken to the Harrisburg Hospital, but ultimately died from his injuries, police said.

The shooter, 40-year-old Theodore Meriweather, stayed at the scene and told police he shot Lumpkins to defend himself after the two got into an argument, the release states.

The argument apparently began when Lumpkins walked into the bar and saw Meriweather with Lumpkins’ estranged wife, said Lt. Robert Fegan, a Harrisburg police spokesman.

Double Murder – Killed – Stephen Lankford (Mobile, AL)

Stephen Lankford1

SEMMES, Alabama — Police were still piecing together the events that led to the double homicide of a married couple in Semmes Saturday.

Their red brick colonial-style home, located at the end of a cul de sac at 6797 Kings Branch Drive South, was found burning by a family member late Friday, officials from the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office said.

The bodies of Erica Lankford, 43, and Steven Lankford, 57, were discovered inside, police spokesman Lt. Paul Burch said.

Each of their bodies bore multiple injuries, Burch said.

SEMMES, Alabama — The man charged with murder early this morning after a married couple was found dead in their burning house Friday night is accused of stalking one of the victim’s sisters, who had an order of protection against him before authorities discovered the gruesome scene.

Gigada Pearson, 52, was arrested and charged with first-degree arson, aggravated stalking and two counts of murder. He is accused of killing Erica Lankford, 43, and her husband Steven Lankford, 57, before setting their home on fire.

One neighbor tells News 5 she saw a white trucj pull into the driveway just after 9 p.m. She says the driver and Steve went through the back gate, into the backyard. A few moments later she heard four gunshots and saw the truck pull away.

Officers showed up to a home along Hackett Road, off of Morgan Road, around 5:38 p.m. Friday after people heard gunshots in the area and called 911.

In front of a home along the street, officers found a man who was shot multiple times.

That man was taken to Doctors Medical Center, but later died. He was later identified as 43-year-old Adolfo Sandoval.

Police say that the estranged husband of a woman who lives along the street is the suspected shooter. The shooting looks to be the result of an argument over Sandoval moving into the woman’s home while the shooter – 34-year-old Noel Mansilla – was in prison.

Killed – Jennifer Solorio (Orange, CA)

Jennifer Solorio

ORANGE, Calif. (KABC) — The female suspect and victim in the fatal Orange shooting were romantically involved, according to a family member.

The daughter of the victim, 44-year-old Jennifer Roberta Solorio, told Eyewitness News that her mother and the suspect, 35-year-old Jessica Gonzalez, were involved in a romantic relationship for 13 years. She said the two were having problems recently, but she does not know what possible reason Gonzalez would have to resort to such violence.

Police say Gonzalez, from Santa Ana, shot and killed Solorio outside an apartment complex in Orange Thursday around 3 p.m.

Orange County District Attorney’s Office investigators determined that Santa Ana police officers Gary Ayala and Saul Esquivel acted reasonably during a June 23 confrontation that led to the death of Jessica Gonzalez, who at the time of her death was being sought by authorities in connection with the killing of a woman days earlier in an Orange neighborhood, a letter released Tuesday outlining the results of the investigation said.

Fearing for his safety, Ayala told investigators, he yelled “Gun!” and began shooting his service weapon at the garage wall to provide cover as he ran across the alley toward Esquivel’s car.

Esquivel told investigators that he saw Ayala run across the alley, heard him yell “Gun!” multiple times and saw him fire several rounds toward the garage. The report said Gonzalez also ran across the alley, to within 5 feet of Ayala, at which point Esquivel pulled out his handgun and fired a dozen rounds at Gonzalez, who fell to the ground. Ayala said that once Gonzalez was down, he saw her reach for something with her left hand, and he fired two additional rounds at her.

Gonzalez was taken to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where she was pronounced dead. Authorities reportedly found the replica handgun under her body, as well as a syringe in her bra that “appeared to be filled with blood.”

The police shooting happened in the 800 block of South Townsend Street on Sunday about 8 a.m., police said.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s officers arrested a 37-year-old Woodlands man after a SWAT standoff Thursday afternoon in the Village of Panther Creek for allegedly killing his mother.

The Sheriff’s Office received a call about a disturbance at the residence at 17 Dell Forest Court around 2:40 p.m. The Sheriff’s Office also received a call about the same time from a nearby business reporting that a woman had walked in off the street reporting she had been assaulted and that she had witnessed her boyfriend kill his mother.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Rose Geisert (Homosassa, FL)

Rose Geisert

HOMOSASSA, Fla – Citrus County deputies say they are investigating what appears to be a murder-suicide in the Sugarmill Woods area of Homosassa.

It occurred Wednesday night around 9 p.m. at 52 Pine  Street in Homosassa.

According to deputies, they found Rose Geisert and Ernest Geisert on the bathroom floor with apparent gunshot wounds.  Both were in their 80s.  Deputies say they found a firearm under Ernest’s body.

Deputies on the scene say a friend who was already inside the residence helping one of the descendants from an apparent fall earlier heard muffled bangs which she thought was possibly Mrs. Geisert falling again.

The friend, according to deputies, went into the bathroom to check on the couple and found them lying on the bathroom floor with a large amount of blood around them.  She ran to the next door neighbor’s house to call 911, deputies said.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Mark Peabody (Caledonia, VT)

Mark Peabody

A New Hampshire man who authorities believe gunned down former school principal Mark Peabody in Peacham before killing himself may have planned to survive the attack and escape the scene.

Records indicate Dr. John Jackson of Amherst, N.H., found dead inside Peabody’s home Wednesday, was deeply disturbed about issues related to his divorce from Peabody’s wife, Jeanne Peabody, 13 years ago.

Police said Jackson shot Mark Peabody to death on the front lawn of Peabody’s house and then committed suicide inside the home. But police said that Jackson, who was a bald man, was wearing a wig and driving a rented SUV when he arrived at Peabody’s Slack Street home early Wednesday morning.

MANCHESTER – Manchester V.A. Medical Center is offering counseling to its staff and patients after a “well-loved” doctor there allegedly killed his ex-wife’s husband and then himself in Vermont last week.

Vermont State Police said Dr. John Jackson, 59, of Amherst went to the home of his former wife, Jeannie Peabody, in Peacham, Vt., last Wednesday morning. There, police said, he shot Mark Peabody, 50, twice in the chest after Peabody went outside to investigate a suspicious vehicle.

Jackson then entered the residence and shot himself in the head, according to a news release.

Police said Jeannie Peabody, 60, had called 911 around 7 a.m. on June 19, reporting a white van with New Jersey plates was on her lawn. Her husband had gone outside to confront the driver, and Mrs. Peabody told police she heard three gunshots.

Killed – Adam Shope (Orange City, FL)

Adam Shope

A Volusia County man shot and killed his suicidal son who was threatening to harm him, sheriff’s investigators said.

Deputies believe the Tuesday night shooting near Orange City was justified, said Volusia County sheriff’s spokesman Brandon Haught.

When deputies got to the home — Lot 36 at 2500 N. Volusia Ave. near Orange City — at 6:45 p.m. they found 39-year-old Adam Shope dead inside. The shooter was Adam Shope’s father, William Shope, 68, Haught said.

William Shope was there and spoke willingly with investigators. The older Shope told investigators his son had obtained his father’s handgun and threatened to commit suicide.

William Shope got the gun away from his son but then the son threatened his father with a fist and an aggressive stance. William Shope told investigators he was in fear for his life and fired one shot at his son. He then called for help.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Zakiya Lawson (Charleston, NC)

Zakiya Lawson1

A 26-year-old man who authorities say shot and killed a 34-year-old woman before taking his own life Tuesday morning was released from jail last month for allegedly assaulting the woman earlier this year.

According to North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor, police responded to a home in the 4600 block of Thoroughbred Drive around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday after receiving reports of a domestic disturbance between Williams and Lawson, who both live at the home.

Once at the scene, Pryor said officers were able to clear several people from inside of the residence.

Nisbet said Lawson was running in and out of the door, shouting that “he had a gun.”  Nisbet said officers tried to get Lawson to say outside, but she kept going back in.  Officers were also trying to call him out of the residence, according to the coroner.

The female went back in once more, and when the officers were getting ready to breach the door, shots were heard from inside the home, according to Nisbet.

Once inside, officers located Williams and Lawson.

Coroner Chris Nisbet said Williams shot and killed Lawson before he turned the gun on himself and took his own life Tuesday morning.
