Tish James believes in fictional porcelain Glock

Attorney General Tish James intends to defend New York’s public nuisance law, A-6762B/S-7196, in a lawsuit brought against Glock for a subway shooting back in April.

There’s no press release from her office, just this story at Courthouse News Service.

Her complaint contains this nugget of stupidity on page 24:

“… “Upon information and belief, in or around 1990, “the Glock began to appear in the hands of police officers in Law and Order and other police procedural shows. It was also used by Bruce Willis in the movie Die Hard 2. Willis’ character even bragged about the advantages of using a Glock…”[He] introduced the gun as a character to people who don’t know anything about guns,” says Barrett …”

That’s the fictional porcelain Glock 7.  She actually put that into a lawsuit.

Several Nassau Co. bills introduced

Several local bills have been introduced to the county legislature in response to the SCOTUS decision:

  • Clerk Item 151-22 – Requires NCPD to cross-check the names of individuals who are involuntarily transported to facilities for emergency psychiatric care against the pistol license registry.
  • Clerk Item 192-22 – Mandatory firearms storage.
  • Clerk Item 193-22 – Legal assistance for filing ERPO.
  • Clerk Item 194-22 – Requires gun dealers post signs warning of the dangers of firearms.

Pistol licensing holdup

There is a rumor circulating that starting in September, no new pistol license applications will be processed until a training regime is put into place.

I can see this happening, but I have not seen the original e-mail where this supposedly started from.
