“When it comes to legal gun possession, Staten Island is the most well-armed of the city’s five boroughs per capita, according to state data.
The numbers show roughly 6,400 Staten Island residents with gun permits, indicating that Staten Islanders are more than four times as likely to have a handgun permit as residents in the rest of the city…”

- Catching A Glimpse Of Ameri… by Glenn At New…
On Oct. 12 the good people of Ferguson, Missouri, continued to protest the unjustified shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown by municipal police officer Darren Wilson. Seventeen people were arrested for participating in an unlawful assembly outside a convenience store, and the following day, 50 others were arrested as part of an organized “Moral Monday” protest challenging St. Louis’ casual acceptance of police violence and brutality. Earlier this month, protesters disrupted a bastion of white elitism — a performance of the St. Louis symphony — as well as an event decidedly less elite: a St. Louis Cardinal’s game.
Discontent over the shooting of Michael Brown is not subsiding. It has seemingly evolved into a larger movement aimed at questioning the broader foundations of the system of structural inequality that black and brown men and women face every day. Indeed, it has broken out into the larger culture as a renewed debate over inequality in general in the contemporary United States. As is usually the case in the farce that passes for American political culture these days, perhaps the most interesting arena to watch this play out was not on any actual news program, but on a recent episode of “The Daily Show” in which host Jon Stewart and guest Bill O’Reilly discussed the concept of white privilege.
Laughs were had by all of course, but the comic jabs between Stewart and O’Reilly paper over an admittedly grim reality. A recent study carried out by the journalism nonprofit ProPublica, for instance, finds that black teens are 21 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than their white counterparts. The report’s authors came to this conclusion by examining FBI data accumulated on the topic between 2010 and 2012, which showed that for teens aged 15 to 19, the rate at which black youngsters were gunned down by the boys in blue stood at 31.17 per million, while that for their white counterparts are just 1.47 per million. Even accounting for the higher crime rate of black teens, which itself is heavily inflated by the racial bias that pervades our juvenile justice system, the disparity in police killings of black teens is still far, far higher than one would expect if no bias were at work.
- Dems Use Ebola To Push For … by Glenn At New…
More than two dozen House Democrats are pushing the Senate to revive and ratify the nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to a critical post, but helping to fight deadly disease is not what they have in mind.
The question of the day is why we have or need an Ebola czar in the form of political operative/hack Ron Klain when we have an unfilled surgeon general’s position that physician emeritus serving as America’s doctor is supposed to fill.
We have an acting Surgeon General, Rear Admiral Boris Lushniak, but he is seemingly just a placeholder instead of the force that a confirmed Surgeon General can and should be.
The surgeon general could be a respected face and voice in the fight against Ebola, a role that has defaulted to Dr. Tom Frieden of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), he of the protocols etched in Jell-O who is probably still rethinking his approach to the disease.
The answer from Democrats is — wait for it — it’s the Republicans’ fault, since President Obama’s nominee to the post, Dr. Vivek Murthy, president and co-founder of Doctors for America, was stopped in his tracks by Senate Republicans and vulnerable red-state Democrats.
- NEW UK GUN POLICY SHOULD BE… by Glenn At New…
A new policy announced by the British Home Office recently to allow unannounced searches of the homes of registered British gun owners should raise alarms among Americans who are threatened with increasingly restrictive gun laws pushed by wealthy anti-gunners including billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
“This is an alarming development in Great Britain,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “and it ought to serve as a warning to American gun owners and Constitutional activists concerned not only with their Second Amendment rights but also their Fourth Amendment rights. In Washington state, where CCRKBA is headquartered, there have already been attempts to include such language in so-called ‘assault weapons’ ban legislation.
“There are also privacy concerns about Initiative 594, the 18-page gun control measure requiring background checks on nearly all firearms transfers,” he added, “ including temporary loans and gifts to friends and in-laws. All too frequently, we’ve heard the gun prohibition lobby urge adoption of gun laws and regulations like those in the United Kingdom, and now we can see what they’re ultimately after.”
According to Fox News, prior to the new regulations, British gun owners were subject to visits by the authorities. However, these required prior notification. The new policy does not.
“British authorities argue that the new policy is necessary based on so-called ‘intelligence’ indicating a specific threat,” Gottlieb observed, “but there is considerable danger in this revision because such guidelines could be easily abused.
“We are living in an era when government, under the rather broad arguments of national and local security, is becoming ever more intrusive,” he continued. “Our delineated civil rights, at least in America, include the right to keep and bear arms, and the example now coming from Great Britain is that this right is being systematically eroded to the point that it is becoming a heavily-regulated privilege.
“Let this be a warning to tens of millions of law-abiding American gun owners,” Gottlieb concluded. “What’s happening now in the United Kingdom will be touted as the next ‘common sense’ step for gun control in the United States. Just because someone exercises their right to keep and bear arms should not be an excuse to nullify their right to privacy.”

- If You Want to Keep Your Gu… by Glenn At New…
A few weeks ago I noted a new California law, prompted by Elliot Rodger’s murders in Isla Vista last May, that lets police officers and “immediate family members” (possibly including angry ex-girlfriends and estranged in-laws) seek court orders stripping people of their Second Amendment rights without any notice or adversarial process. New York’s SAFE Act, which was hurriedly passed by the state legislature last year in response to the Sandy Hook massacre, in some ways goes even further. As a story in yesterday’s New York Times confirms, the law effectively gives “mental health professionals” the power to disarm people, and they do not even need a judge’s approval.
- Blood and Lead. “The … by Glenn At New…
As race tribalism threatens once again to destroy this country, I was reminded of Fenton’s poem when I saw this: “‘The entire nation will burn': Ferguson protestors discouraged by NYT profile of Darren Wilson.” There’s is more than a whiff of barbaric atavism in the air and we seem to be slouching rapidly toward a new time of blood and lead.
As Bob Owens comments:
I would suggest being prepared for the outrage that is almost certainly going to come from those who have invested so much in recent months in created the mythology of an innocent martyr shot down for no reason. Religious movements died hard, and the cult of St. Michael Brown will no go quietly. It probably shouldn’t be a surprise at all that some agitators are calling for not just “revenge,” but Palestinian-style terrorism.
Readers will recognize that I am not shy about denouncing militarized police violence. But in the Brown case — should riots break out over a failure to indict — that will be little more than a pretext for far greater evils. Rodney King did not deserve to be beaten by a mob of cops but that hardly made a difference to Reginald Denny or the other victims who died in the LA riots.
