Wednesday’s Newsbits:

Retired cop shoots robber in Queens

Residents arm themselves

What happens when two killers escape from prison?

Residents arm themselves:

“… residents of a small upstate town armed themselves as law enforcement zeroed in on Willsboro, about 40 miles southeast of Dannemora.  “My husband I both have conceal carry (licenses), and we have our guns loaded and they’re here in the house,” said Teresa Sayward, a former Republican assemblywoman whose farm is near where the wanted men were spotted. “Hopefully we won’t have to use them.” … Another Willsboro resident took out his shotgun when a reporter walked up to his home to interview him …”

Isn’t the SAFE Act enough to keep them safe?

Arming bodega owners

The Bodega Association of the United States is encouraging store owners to apply for NYC pistol licenses.  According to the Daily News:

“… Luis Ducasse, head of the Bodega Association of the United States, has been targeting cornershops and delis in crime-ridden neighborhoods, handing out gun-license applications to owners … The pistol push began after at least 12 deli owners from the Bronx and Queens told Ducasse they were victims of an armed robbery in the last few weeks, he said. At least three deli workers were killed in robberies this winter, he said …”

Disgraceful.  Where is Mayor Bloomberg on this?  Nowhere to bee seen.  As for the police:

“… The NYPD declined to comment on the recent deli robberies or Ducasse’s efforts.  But Bronx officers recently trained deli operators how to best protect themselves, including adding better security cameras, keeping small amounts of cash in registers and avoiding confrontations …”

This is nice, but considering they have no legal obligation whatsoever to protect citizens, would it not be be better for police brass to stop playing politics and simply issue pistol licenses to whomever applies for them?  There is absolutely no legal reason for them to force ordinary people to go through the abusive process they do now.  They can issue unrestricted licenses right now to Joe Citizen just like they do for the rich and politically connected.

Worth remembering

Osama Bin Laden is dead.

Took a round just above his left eye.

John Synder offers his thoughts:

” … Americans can be glad we enjoy the individual Second Amendment civil right to keep and bear arms.  We may have to rely on that right now more than ever to be able to protect life and property from those who would do us and our loved ones harm …”

Words worth remembering.

Social justice

The Daily News calls this street justice, but I think it’s more of a social justice issue:

“… David Williams was pummeling his 19-year-old gal pal … when the pistol-packing Good Samaritan stepped up … Williams, 22, got in the unidentified man’s face … and forcefully told him to mind his business.  “Mind my business?” the passerby responded … The man then whipped out a gun and shot Williams … once above his left eye …”

Nice shot.

“… Williams – who had 10 domestic violence arrests involving his mother and the baby’s mother – was rushed to Lincoln Hospital, where he died …”

Fuck him.

“… Police were hunting for the shooter last night …”


“… Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers …”

Yeah, good luck with that.

Talk about being ungrateful

Jeanne Assam, the woman who stopped a crazed killers rampage by shooting him back in 2007, came out as gay.

Now, according to her, the church where it happened doesn’t want her.  Talk about being ungrateful.

Customer fires shots at armed bank robber

News of the day

Rick Lazio is accepting a judicial nomination in the Bronx to get him out of the gubernatorial race.  This frees up the CP to endorse Carl Paladino which it appears they are going to do.

Democrat control of the State Senate is slipping away.  I can see the GOP picking up anywhere from 2-7 seats: one or two on Long Island, one or two in Westchester and one to three upstate.

The NRA endorsed Bill Owens in CD-23 and Scott Murphy in CD-20 and people are pissed, especially in CD-20.

Utica Mayor David Roefaro is still trying to draw attention to himself.

Armed citizen in Syracuse takes out robber while in NYC only the beautiful people are allowed to have guns for self-defense.

The Elbridge Rod & Gun Club is not black rifle friendly.
