Parishioner Who Stopped Texas Church Shooter Criticizes Bloomberg on Gun-Control Efforts

Parishioner Who Stopped Texas Church Shooter Criticizes Bloomberg on Gun-Control EffortsThe armed parishioner who took down a shooter at a Texas church in December criticized former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg's gun control efforts on Wednesday."Mr. Bloomberg, had we operated by his standards or his wishes, the carnage would have been significantly greater because the individual still, after the shooting, still had seven live rounds in his gun and three more in his pocket," Jack Wilson said in an interview on Fox News. Wilson, a member of West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, fired a single round at an armed intruder on December 29, killing the assailant.Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey hit back at Wilson in a Thursday appearance on Fox."Mr. Bloomberg supports his right to carry a gun," Sheekey said. "We salute him. But the question is, should anyone who is criminally insane be able to get a gun? I would say no."Earlier in January, while speaking about the Texas incident, Bloomberg appeared to criticize policies that loosen restrictions on gun control."Somebody in the congregation had their own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people, but it is the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot," Bloomberg said. "You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place."Bloomberg has been heavily involved in gun-control efforts over the years. His proposals for the 2020 presidential election include universal background checks and "red flag screening" measures. In 2013, Bloomberg founded Everytown for Gun Safety, a non-profit that advocates for stricter gun control measures.

Ohio governor stopped mid-speech at vigil for Dayton shooting victims: 'Do something'

Ohio governor stopped mid-speech at vigil for Dayton shooting victims: 'Do something'During a vigil to remember the dead killed in Dayton, Ohio, on Sunday, the Republican governor of the state was stopped mid-speech with demands that he “do something” about the kind of violence that had left at least nine people dead less than 24 hours earlier.Mike DeWine had just remarked on the size of the crowd in Dayton’s Oregon District, when he was confronted with pleas for action.“Do something!” a member of the crowd yelled, prompting echoes from the others in the crowd that built into chants that disrupted the event, which was being held around the corner from the site of the deadly shooting.The moment quickly went viral on social media,, as a frustration with a lack of action on the gun violence epidemic spread.It echoed sentiments across the US following other mass shootings, including at the vigil following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, last year, when a mourning crowd chanted “no more guns!”“We are tired of vigils!” the crowd in Ohio chanted.Soon after the vigil, the hashtag “DoSomething” took off on Twitter, with impassioned statements being posted by users in favour of gun control action.Mr DeWine’s position on gun control appears to hew closely to the positions of the National Rifle Association (NRA), and he announced on the campaign trail last year that he supported “red flag” laws that could allow law enforcement to take firearms from individuals who pose a threat to themselves or others, so long as there is “due process”.That position is similar to the one taken by the NRA.

Woman, 65, tasered by police after fleeing then kicking officer who stopped her over broken light: 'You're not placing me under no arrest'

Woman, 65, tasered by police after fleeing then kicking officer who stopped her over broken light: 'You're not placing me under no arrest'A 65-year-old woman was tasered after fleeing then kicking out at a police officer who stopped her over a broken light. Debra Hamil, from Oklahoma, has been charged after body camera footage showed her resisting arrest during the confrontation in the town of Cashion last month. “I don’t think that I deserve to pay $ 80 for something that is fixable and I can fix it,” Ms Hamil is heard telling the officer after he issues her a ticket for a broken tail light.After being asked to step out of her pick-up truck, she repeatedly refuses and eventually drives away, prompting a brief pursuit. After pulling over in a car park, the officer approaches her with his gun pulled and drags her out of the vehicle when she again refuses to step out.Following a brief struggle in which Ms Hamil kicks out, the officer fires his stun gun at her and places her under arrest. "Do you realise you just got yourself in a whole lot more trouble?" the officer says.Ms Hamil replies: "Yeah, I tried to kick you because I'm a country girl.” Local media reported Ms Hamil was taken to hospital for a medical assessment despite refusing treatment. She was subsequently charged with one count of assault against a police officer and one misdemeanour for resisting arrest.
