Monday Gun Day: July 11th, 2011

A Vacaville motel clerk talked a naked and stoned woman on ecstasy brandishing a gun into putting her weapon down shortly after 2:30am when she strolled into the Super 8 lobby complaining about the man she was staying in the room with.

The Federal Gun Free School Zone Act of 1995 will conflict with a new Wyoming law allowing residents to carry handguns without permits. There is a loophole in the Federal act that allows people to carry in a school zone within the state where the permit is issued, but there is no exemption for those who live in a state not requiring a permit. Wyoming residents were told this law would not be enforced by state officers, and the US attorney’s office has not filed charges in violation of the law in 15 years.

It was determined that a 34-year-old ex-con used a stolen gun last week during his killing spree in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His criminal past prevented him from legally being able to own a firearm. He killed 2 children (including his daughter), 5 adults (including two former girlfriends), and injured two others before holding 3 strangers hostage in their home during a stand-off with officials that resulted in him killing himself.

A man in Philly was shot by police after allegedly pointing a gun at officers. The suspect is in stable condition after bolting from the passenger seat of a car that was being pulled over and leading cops on a chase that ended in the shooting.

A North Carolina 14-year-old is dead after being shot in the head with a BB gun. The teen who shot him sought help by flagging down a passing car, which set off a search involving bloodhounds and helicopters. No charges have been filed.

A man was arrested at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California, after he attempted to steal a sheriff deputy’s gun from the holster. The man snuck up behind the deputy and reached for the gun, but was subdued by the deputy and a sheriff’s department employee.

Finally, more guns from the “Fast and Furious” operation have turned up at crime scenes in Arizona. The cases are all drug related. Meanwhile, Congress is beginning to put pressure on assigning accountability within the ATF, the Justice Department, and the Obama administration.
