Florida Beware: What Can Happen Under So-Called “Universal” Background Checks

This proves that when liberals say they are helping there are always unintended

consequences and innocent people are hurt or destroyed.

The people of Florida need to be aware of the consequences of expanded background checks.

 

 If you know anyone who is misinformed enough to support so-called “universal background checks”, please show them this article.  Thankfully, this District Attorney in Colorado understands the folly of prosecuting law-abiding people.

However, if you simply assume that Florida’s State Attorneys would follow Colorado’s lead under a similar scheme, you might want to reconsider.  While some would refuse to prosecute in these situations, unfortunately many Florida State Attorneys are anti-gun and far too quick to go after honest citizens instead of violent criminals.

Colorado DA Refuses to Prosecute Flood Victims for Private Firearm Transfers
Posted on October 4, 2013

Back in February and March, NRA-ILA warned that Colorado’s House Bill 1229, criminalizing the private transfer of firearms, was overbroad, and would unduly burden and ensnare law-abiding citizens. Lo and behold, less than seven months after Gov. Hickenlooper signed HB 1229, some victims of September’s devastating floods are fearful of being prosecuted under the new law.

According to an article published in the Greeley Tribune of Greeley, Colo., residents of Weld County, Colo. contacted Weld District Attorney Ken Buck with concerns that if they were to store their firearms with family or friends while cleaning or rebuilding their flood ravaged homes they could face prosecution for an illegal firearms transfer. While the new statute contains very limited exceptions for things like “bona fide gift[s] between immediate family members,” it does not exempt the temporary transfer of a firearm for safekeeping at someone else’s property.

To assuage the fears of his constituents, in a September 30th press release, Buck announced that he will not prosecute anyone experiencing such hardship. Buck is quoted in the press release as stating, “It would be unconscionable to require those affected by the floodwaters to obtain a background check… And it would be equally unconscionable to prosecute them under these circumstances. This is an example of the consequences of laws that are overbroad and not well thought out and illustrates how such laws can harm residents’ rights.”

On the same date, Buck sent a letter to the police chiefs of Weld County and Weld Sheriff John Cooke, alerting them to his position. The letter makes clear to the law enforcement agencies, “the District Attorney’s Office will not accept for prosecution any allegation that an individual failed to obtain a background check prior to…

Great get away car a Honda Accord.

 

 

WASHINGTON (AP) An Idaho man charged with attempting to assassinate President Barack Obama by shooting at the White House practiced with his weapon for six months and may have been upset about the country’s marijuana policy, prosecutors said in a newly filed court document.

Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez is currently awaiting trial for the 2011 shooting, which didn’t injure anyone but left more than five bullet marks on the executive mansion.

Prosecutors filed a 14-page court document Tuesday that adds additional detail about Ortega-Hernandez, who allegedly shot at the White House the night of Nov. 11 while the president and first lady were away.

Ortega-Hernandez, 22, has pleaded not guilty to the attempted assassination charge and to other charges.

In the document, prosecutors said Ortega-Hernandez “expressed anger towards the government regarding the continued criminalization of marijuana,” which they said he acknowledged smoking and claimed makes people more intelligent.

Prosecutors said they will offer evidence to show that Ortega-Hernandez’s motive in shooting at the White House “was to punish and kill the president, who he believed was the head of a government that was oppressing its citizens in various ways, such as by continuing to criminalize the use of marijuana.”

Prosecutors also reiterated previously disclosed information that Ortega-Hernandez repeatedly expressed contempt for Obama, whom he called the antichrist.

Ortega-Hernandez practiced firing the assault rifle used to shoot at the White House at a “desolate crater” outside his home in Idaho Falls, prosecutors said in the document.

They said a witness told them Ortega-Hernandez practiced shooting at items including “a home stereo amplifier, an empty ammunition case, a video cassette recorder, and a stereo speaker.”

Ortega-Hernandez fired the assault weapon from his car, a black Honda Accord, and then fled on foot after he crashed it, prosecutors said.

They said he was later photographed riding on a freight train headed northwest from Washington. A former FBI photographer who takes pictures of trains as a hobby took the picture and approached law enforcement with it, the document said.

Ortega-Hernandez, who was arrested in Pennsylvania several days after the shooting, told investigators his car was stolen from him at gunpoint the same day as the shooting.

A status conference in the case is set for June 18.

Headline: Paraplegic man kills intruder during Johnstown home break-in printable page

Leave a comment

 

This is from The Buckeye Firearms Association.

This punk got the intended victims other gun just not like he wanted them.

It is because of  punks like this is why we need to legally owe and use firearms.

The Newark Advocate is reporting that a paraplegic man is alive today thanks to the .357 revolver he keeps near his bed.

From the article:

John Mutter was asleep in his bed on Sunset Drive when an intruder poked him in the head with a shotgun.

Mutter, a paraplegic who keeps a gun nearby for protection, fatally shot the intruder, early Sunday, Licking County Coroner’s investigator George Ridgeway said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, Ridgeway said.

It appears that he was looking for medication or money, Ridgeway said. Johnstown police are investigating whether someone else was involved in planning the burglary, Licking County Prosecutor Ken Oswalt said.

According to The Columbus Dispatch, police identified Johnstown native Brian Dyer, 27, as the man found dead on the floor of Mutter’s home when they arrived shortly after 2:15 a.m. Sunday.

Johnstown Police Chief Don Corbin said that the shooting appears to be a justified response to a home-invasion robbery.

Corbin said he does not believe charges against Mutter, 33, are warranted, but the case will be presented to the Licking County prosecutor’s office for review.

The intruder entered the house through an unlocked door and had found one of Mutter’s guns before he awoke the man, the police chief said.

The man told Mutter, “I have some of your property,” and wanted to know where other guns could be found, Corbin said. At least two gunshots fired by Mutter struck Dyer in the upper body, he said.

Mutter was composed when he called 911 shortly after the shooting, a recording of the call shows. “Somebody broke in my house and had a gun to me and I shot at him,” Mutter tells a dispatcher. “I woke up and they had a gun to me.”

The investigation continues, with police believing that Dyer may have been familiar with Mutter’s home and the fact he owned several guns, Corbin said.

According to the article, Mutter lost the use of his legs after a car crash about a year ago, neighbors said last night. Since then, he has been living at home and trying to regain his mobility.

Under Ohio’s Castle Doctrine law, if someone unlawfully enters or attempts to enter an occupied home or temporary habitation, or occupied car, citizens have an initial presumption that they may act in self defense, and will not be second-guessed by the State.

 

Ohio to Execute Man Who Killed 3 Sleeping Sons

Leave a comment

 

The story below is from Fox News.
This scumbag should have died years ago.

Ohio was poised Tuesday to end a nearly six-month break in its use of capital punishment by executing a man who fatally shot his three sons while they slept in 1982, shortly after his wife filed for divorce.
State and federal courts have rejected attorneys’ arguments that 66-year-old Reginald Brooks of East Cleveland is not mentally competent and that the government withheld relevant evidence that could have affected Brooks’ case.


The Ohio Supreme Court on Monday rejected Brooks’ request to halt the execution, and he had appeals pending in the U.S. Supreme Court. Meanwhile, he visited with his brother, clergy and lawyers and was served the special dinner he requested, including lasagna, garlic bread, ice cream, chocolate cake, root beer and snacks, prisons spokesman Carlo LoParo said.

The defense contends Brooks is a paranoid schizophrenic who suffered from mental illness long before he shot his 11-, 15- and 17-year-old sons in the head as they slept at their East Cleveland home on a Saturday morning. The defense says Brooks believed his co-workers and wife were poisoning him and that he maintains his innocence, offering conspiracy theories about the killings that involve police, his relatives and a look-alike.
Prosecutors acknowledge Brooks is mentally ill but dispute the notions that it caused the murders or makes him incompetent. They say he planned merciless killings, bought a revolver two weeks in advance, confirmed he’d be home alone with the boys, targeted them when they wouldn’t resist and fled on a bus with a suitcase containing a birth certificate and personal items that could help him start a new life.
“It is a travesty that Reginald Brooks has lived so long on death row after cruelly shooting his three boys to death,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason said in a statement Monday.
Prosecutors say Brooks’ insistence that he’s innocent is a sign that he knows his rights, not that he’s delusional.
Brooks was found competent for trial, and a three-judge panel convicted him.
Defense attorneys have argued that prosecutors withheld information that would have supported a mental health defense. Former Judge Harry Hanna, one of the three on the panel, told the Ohio Parole Board he would not have voted for the death penalty if he’d had information from police reports that were provided to the defense more recently.
Brooks declined to be interviewed by the parole board.
The board recommended that Gov. John Kasich deny clemency, and he did. Kasich previously granted clemency to two death row inmates and postponed two other executions as a federal judge weighed objections to Ohio’s execution policy.
U.S. District Court Judge Gregory Frost denied a delay for Brooks last week and ruled in favor of Ohio’s execution rules, saying the state addressed his concerns about the process.
Beverly Brooks, who found her sons dead in bed when she returned from work, told the parole board she believes the killings were an act of revenge for her divorce filing, not the result of mental illness, and she supports the execution. She is among those scheduled to witness it.
Reginald Brooks was taken Monday to the prison in Lucasville, where the execution would happen. He would be the oldest person put to death since Ohio resumed executions in 1999.
