Woman who shot at shoplifters vows to 'never help anybody again' after conviction

Woman who shot at shoplifters vows to 'never help anybody again' after conviction
Michael E. Miller
The Washington Post

Tatiana Duva-Rodriguez thought she was doing the right thing when she pulled out her pistol and fired at a pair of shoplifters as they fled from a Home Depot near Detroit.

She wasn't, at least in the eyes of the law.

On Wednesday, a Michigan judge sentenced Duva-Rodriguez to 18 months of probation and stripped the 46-year-old of her concealed gun permit.

Oh, reality! Where have you gone? Will you ever come back or are we doomed to live inside the fevered fantasies of Dudes With Big Guns?

New York Daily News:

In the wake of two terror attacks, two gun rights groups in Texas have decided now is a good time for a mock mass shooting.

Come and Take It Texas and DontComply.com are planning the emphatic demonstration on the campus of University of Texas in Austin on Saturday.

The groups will "take to the streets armed with rifles and pistols on display followed by a crisis performance," according to a press release posted on Facebook.

Two men took their dispute outside a Michigan toy store to settle the argument with firearms.

An employee at Toys ‘R’ Us in Flint Township said she heard multiple gunshots about 5 p.m. Monday while working the cash register, reported MLive.

“I heard the gunshots. It was about three or four of them. One of the managers came to the door and was, like, ‘They’re shooting. Lock the store down,'” said cashier Tequila Roberson. “It basically happened in front of my register from the outside.”

Thank God the "good guys with guns" didn't kill any innocent bystanders in the parking lot with a stray bullet...this time.

End the Gun Epidemic in America

End the Gun Epidemic in America
​It is a moral outrage and national disgrace that civilians can legally purchase weapons designed to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD DEC. 4, 2015

All decent people feel sorrow and righteous fury about the latest slaughter of innocents, in California. Law enforcement and intelligence agencies are searching for motivations, including the vital question of how the murderers might have been connected to international terrorism. That is right and proper.

But motives do not matter to the dead in California, nor did they in Colorado, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut and far too many other places. The attention and anger of Americans should also be directed at the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms.

Ohio Community Lives in Fear as Rifle-Toting White Man Stalks Black Neighborhoods With Impunity

Ohio Community Lives in Fear as Rifle-Toting White Man Stalks Black Neighborhoods With Impunity
Police say the state’s gun laws have tied their hands despite complaints.

By Tom Boggioni / Raw Story December 5, 2015


A 25-year-old white man got into an altercation with the black owner of a barbershop on Thursday who objected to him stalking predominantly black neighborhoods carrying a rifle slung across his back, reports Cleveland.com.

Saying he has a right under Ohio’s open carry laws to parade about town carrying his gun, Daniel Kovacevic, 25, has been stopped by police multiple times — including near the University of Akron — but police say the state’s gun laws have tied their hands despite citizen complaints.

This racist gun humper has the right under law to terrorize this neighborhood any time he wants to legally!

Hillary’s Gun Control Plan

Hillary’s Gun Control Plan

What Clinton and her Democratic primary rivals would try to do about guns if elected.

By Jamelle Bouie

Clinton has a three-pronged plan.

Bernie Sanders hasn’t released a package for gun control, but his campaign is crafting one, and judging from the present environment in the Democratic Party, it will likely hew to the Clinton and O’Malley models.

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2015/12/hillary_clinton_s_gun_control_plan_is_a_good_one.html

Is Bernie finally evolving on guns? He's playing follow the leader with Hillary and MOM that's for sure.
