“F” Stands for Fail: Gun Turn-in Event Nets a Stack of Paper Pledges and Some Surplus Sporting Goods

Recently, we reported on Hillary Clinton’s praise for local firearm “buyback” events and her view that forcing Americans to participate in them on a national level – ala Australia and Great Britain – is “worth considering.”

Voluntary gun buybacks are a classic case of gun control symbolism. Their advocates claim they are “taking guns off our streets,” although in many cases the guns collected are so ancient or decrepit as to be completely nonfunctional or nearly so. In other cases, the guns are not coming off “the street” but from law-abiding owners where such firearms pose no risk to public safety whatsoever.

Even an advisor to the Obama administration at the National Institute of Justice said such efforts “cannot be effective” unless “massive” in scope “and coupled with a ban” on the same sort of arms as are being collected. Voluntary buybacks, the advisor counseled, “are too small to have an impact” and involve guns that “are at a low risk of ever being used in a crime,” while replacements for the turned-in guns “are easily acquired.”

Voluntary turn-in events also usually require some incentive to stimulate participation. This typically takes the form of cash or gift cards, which of course can then immediately be used to finance the purchase of new guns.

Given all this, it was particularly ambitious for the Greensboro, NC, Police Department (GPD) to urge residents to turn in guns, while also signing a “pledge of non-violence” at an event the department conducted last Saturday. According to the Facebook post advertising the event, “Police employees will be accepting handguns, rifles, shotguns, and ammunition at the event. This is not a buy-back program. No cash will be given in exchange for weapons voluntarily surrendered to police.”

It was meant to be an event, “in which law enforcement and community members work together to solve problems.” The GPD noted that “there is no limit” to how many firearms would be accepted and that they would “not be returned.” The department also offered to pick up firearms from owners’ homes.

Police-community partnerships are a positive measure to increase public safety, but good intentions aren’t the same thing as a good (or effective) plan. A report by Time-Warner Cable News tried to put a positive spin on things by noting that “almost 1,000 people” responded to take the pledge, leading one to believe that 1,000 firearms had been turned in, but this was hardly the case. As evidenced by the footage accompanying the story, the gun turn-in apparently resulted in a single BB pistol and a single sheathed hunting knife being “taken off the streets.”

Crimes involving firearms in Greensboro have increased 68% from last year, according to the report. Fortunately, asking citizens to promise to be on good behavior and accepting the community’s surplus sporting goods are not the totality of the GPD’s stepped-up efforts to counter this alarming trend. The department’s Facebook page also cites the “creation of a Street Crimes Unit, and enhanced dispatch protocols to calls for service likely to escalate to violence.”

The signed pledges collected at the event will be displayed at GPD headquarters. That may be good PR for the department, but their effectiveness will be measured in the coming days and years by how many criminals are paraded before them on their way to facing justice.

Mayor de Blasio says New York City will not turn away any refugees fleeing Syria.

De Blasio said Tuesday that New York “is a proud immigrant city” and would welcome refugees trying to escape the conflict in their homeland.

Many public officials and U.S. presidential candidates have expressed wariness at admitting refugees in the wake of the terror attacks in Paris last week.

De Blasio chided a pair of local Republicans running for president. He called New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie “an embarrassment to this country” and said that the city “will adhere to the words of our Founding Fathers, not Donald Trump.”

Mother of Paris Suicide Bomber Knew Son Was Radicalized, Argues He Detonated Bomb Because He Was “Stressed”

From the Daily Mail:

The mother of a Paris suicide bomber says her son ‘did not mean to kill anyone’ – and claims he may have blown himself up because of stress, while a third son said his family were ‘thinking of the victims’.

Ibrahim Abdeslam, 31, launched a solo attack outside the cafe Comptoir Voltaire, close to the scene of the Bataclan concert hall massacre on Friday night.

Today Ibrahim’s mother suggested his suicide jacket may have gone off by accident and said he could have carried out the attack because he was ‘stressed’.

Speaking outside the family home, the Abdeslam family claimed that they were ‘surprised’ that Ibrahim blew himself up near the Stade de France, even though he had spent time in Syria.

The family added: ‘We even saw him two days before the attacks. There were no signs that they has plans to do anything violent.’

The family admitted he had spent ‘a long time’ in Syria.

‘We were really surprised that Salah was involved. Ibrahim was different. We did see that he had been radicalised, at least in part. But not so much that we ever thought he would commit an atrocity like this.

Report: City of Atlanta Illegally Stockpiling Seized Guns

The job of America’s brave men and women of law enforcement is to defend the Constitution and uphold the laws of their jurisdictions. It’s a tough job, and those who do it faithfully are to be respected and commended.

But as movie hero Billy Jack famously said, “When policemen break the law, then there isn’t any law ….”

Now, a disturbing report from CBS46 in Atlanta is claiming that city officials, including the police chief, are refusing to comply with a law passed in 2012 that requires public agencies in possession of firearms that are no longer necessary for official use to dispose of those firearms through public auctions.

The report contains video of Atlanta Police Chief George N. Turner opining that compliance with the law would lead to “catastrophic” consequences. According to the report, Atlanta police have some 10,000 confiscated guns that they are warehousing, rather than disposing of as the law requires. The chief very clearly articulates what the law requires of his department and goes on to state, “The City of Atlanta has not done that.”

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed is also depicted in the report acknowledging that he is aware of the law’s requirements and complaining that it’s “very difficult for me to lead on this ….”

Chief Turner reasons that they are not “defying” the legislature but are merely “in a holding pattern.”

But as the report goes on to point out, the law is very clear that “in no event shall such auctions occur less frequently than once every six months during any time in which the political subdivision or state custodial agency has an inventory of saleable firearms.” In over three years, Atlanta has yet to conduct a single auction.

Reporter Ben Swann aptly summarizes the situation as follows: “to say you morally object to the law and you don’t have to follow it… Chief Turner and Mayor Reed would never allow that same reasoning for the rest of us accused of breaking the law.”

The NRA supported Georgia S.B. 350 in 2012 for the simple reason that it treats firearms like any other lawful consumer product that comes into the custody of state officials. Very simply, the law requires that guns forfeited or abandoned to public agencies shall, when no longer necessary for official purposes, but returned to their innocent owners, if applicable, or auctioned to licensed dealers.

Another reporter in the CBS piece alludes to the city having to “dump these guns on the street ….” Under the law, however, that is far from the case.

First, the law states that the firearms have to be auctioned to federally licensed dealers, who are then required to use the same safeguards in their further sale or disposal as they would firearms obtained directly from their manufacturers. Thus, to the degree the Atlanta mayor or police chief have a problem with what the law requires, they have a problem with all lawful firearm commerce.

Furthermore, the law has additional protections to prevent dangerous or unintentional consequences. First, it does not apply if the head of the agency, or a designee of such official, “certifies the firearm is unsafe for use because of wear, damage, age, or modification ….” Also, despite the repeated mention of “illegal guns” in the report, the law does not apply where “any federal or state law prohibits the sale or distribution of such firearm.” In those cases, the agency has several options for disposing of the firearms, including destruction.

Police departments and other public agencies routinely sell forfeited property to the law-abiding public, including firearms. Under the Georgia law, the revenues generated are required first to be used to offset the cost of administering the auctions and then to be transferred to the general fund for further public use. Why anyone would object to raising public revenue through the sale of lawful products (and in the case of firearms, through heavily regulated channels of commerce), rather than expending public money to store or destroy the material, is not clear.

The radical fringe of the gun control movement loves to portray firearm owners as aggrieved insurrectionists, eager to take up arms against any perceived grievance.

Yet here is an apparent case of public administrators using the power and authority of their offices to advance their own preferred public policy, in open disregard of the contrary public policy enacted by the peoples’ elected representatives. When the enforcement authorities think they know better than those who make the laws, the democratic system can quickly fall by the wayside.

Simply put, that flirts dangerously close to anarchy.

We can only hope this unusually penetrating report restores some “law” to the “law and order” apparatus of Atlanta, Georgia. We’ll be following this story closely and providing updates as further developments occur.

Certain residents of Molenbeek have been linked to terrorism plots going back “several years.” The Belgian government acknowledges that it “doesn’t have control” over it. It would appear that the government hasn’t had control over Molenbeek for several years.

Gosh, Molenbeek sort of sounds like one of those “no-go zones” that we’ve been told don’t exist, doesn’t it?

Molenbeek doesn’t just sound like a no-go zone. The UK Independent reports that it is a “police no-go zone,” and that it was home to two of the terrorists who carried out the Paris attacks…

An injured hostage inside a Paris theatre described how terrorists were slaughtering ‘everyone one by one’ in one of a series of attacks that are thought to have killed at least 142 people.

Benjamin Cazenoves, one of those held captive during a rock concert, wrote on social media: ‘I’m still at the Bataclan. 1st floor. Hurt Bad! There are survivors inside. They are cutting down all the world. One by one.’

He added in another Facebook post: ‘Alive. Just cuts… Carnage… Dead bodies everywhere.’

Reports said that French security forces had successfully stormed the building, freed the surviving hostages and killed three terrorists thought to be among six or seven who perpetrated attacks throughout Paris on Friday night.

A man inside the Bataclan theatre in Paris that was taken over by terrorists said that the assailants were slaughtering hostages ‘one by one’. Above, French special forces evacuate people from the building

One hostage who escaped the theatre, where at least 100 are thought to have been killed, said the hostage-takers were yelling about Syria.

Around 125 survivors were freed when security forces stormed the building, and several dozen were being spoken to by police at a nearby bar as they recovered.

Homeland Insecurity: Think the cover-up of the Islamic State-inspired shootings at Chattanooga military sites was bad? Now it looks like authorities are covering up a stabbing spree on a major U.S. campus by an IS follower.

Even worse, the suspect, Faisal Mohammad, reportedly was on a terrorist watch list and even appeared in a local IS (also known as ISIS) threat matrix, which may help explain why the feds are hushing up the terror case. It’s another embarrassing miss.

A freshman at the University of California, Merced, Mohammad stabbed four people on campus Nov. 4 before being shot to death by police. He had plans to zip-tie his classmates and behead them, while reportedly carrying an Islamic State flag during his knife jihad.
