‘Assault Weapon’ ban: Nancy Pelosi, media & AP Stylebook gun update
House Democrats can’t pass bill on semi-automatic rifles

Emily Miller
The so-called assault weapon ban that passed a House of Representatives committee last week was a purely political move to appease the base after the terrible mass shootings in Buffalo, Uvalde and Highland Park.

Everyone in Washington knew there was no chance it could pass the closely-divided Senate. It was supposed to be voted on in the House this week to just gin up the liberal base before the midterms.

But on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pulled the bill off the floor schedule.

Yeah, not a true FGS, and not a surprise, really. Good news has been in short supply lately, though. Thanks, Poe.

Police arrest man they said was posing as fake officer

Michele Newell
Police say they captured a fake cop who had emergency lights, a badge and a radio.

Acworth police told Channel 2 Cobb County Bureau Chief Michele Newell that they aren’t sure how long the suspect was posing as an officer, but they say that when they spotted him, he was driving an unmarked retired police car that had emergency lights mounted on the front, the side and back of the car.

“The uniform looked just like a police officer uniform. The vehicle was an old, retired police car,” Cpl. Eric Mistretta with the Acworth Police Department said.

Police identified the man as Jerardson Mackey. He was charged with impersonating an officer.

“Pretending to be a police officer, it puts everyone at risk,” one driver said, asking not to be identified.

“It’s very concerning. Very frustrating and scary because I’m a female driver,” driver Mary Timbers said.

Police said Mackey activated emergency lights on a white Dodge Charger as soon as they tried to pull him over.

“He had a full duty belt as police officers wear. The only thing missing was a gun, but he did have the magazine patches on his gun belt,” Mistretta said. “He had patches on the side that said Georgia. He had name tags and a rank insignia on his collar.”

Damn fine writing there, Newell.

Suspect fired 7 times in E. Bremerton shooting, missing his target but grazing his partner

Andrew Binion, Kitsap Sun
Luck was the reason cited for why a maintenance worker at an East Bremerton apartment complex was not struck by a bullet in a shooting Tuesday, where a suspect allegedly fired seven rounds at him from a distance of about 10 feet.

The suspect’s alleged partner was also lucky, as he apparently ran in front of the gunfire but was only grazed in the head by one of the bullets.

After emptying the gun bystanders rushed the shooter and held him for police.

The attack on the maintenance workers started for no apparent reason, according to court documents filed Wednesday in Kitsap County Superior Court charging the two men with multiple felonies.

Prosecutors charged Joseph Paul Claussen, 19, of Port Orchard, with attempted second-degree murder, third-degree assault and fourth-degree assault.

South Florida man beats wife, gets shot by stepson, deputies say
MCSO: William Zimmerman, 53, told detectives he would kill stepson after being released from hospital

MONROE COUNTY, Fla. – A South Florida man who was shot last month by his stepson was arrested Tuesday after being released from a hospital in Miami, authorities confirmed on Wednesday.

According to Adam Linhardt, a spokesman for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, William Zimmerman, 53, of Big Pine Key, was shot by his 25-year-old stepson on June 26 as the stepson witnessed Zimmerman beating his mother.

The Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call around 7:30 p.m. that night from the victim’s son. Linhardt said the son shot Zimmerman while he was on the phone with the dispatcher.

“The stepson began administering first-aid until he was ordered out of the residence by arriving Deputies,” Linhardt said in a news release. “The stepson was cooperative with Deputies and Detectives throughout the incident.”

According to Linhardt, the man said he shot his stepfather to defend himself and his mother from immediate harm.

“He also stated his mother is a regular victim of domestic violence and that his stepfather routinely threatens to kill him, her and law enforcement,” Linhardt said. “He added his stepfather is known to possess firearms.”

But do you say “Hold mah beer”, then do Stoopid Stuff that makes everyone else say, “W-T-F?”
If not, then obviously you ain’t been there long enough nor drunk enough sea water to be considered a TRUE “Florida Man”. And that’s ok, too.

All you have to do is start a story with; “In Florida today….[please feel free to fill in anything here; it’s likely to have happened]”

Normally, for something like the Bremerton shooting, I’d say, “Needs more range time!”
Seven rounds? Ten feet? ZERO hits?!
But in this case, the maintenance worker should go out IMMEDIATELY and buy a Lotto or Power Ball ticket. Luck like that won’t stay forever, get it while it’s hot.

Anything that deters the gun-grabbin’ Dems is most definitely a feel good story…

That’s why when I impersonate a police officer I make sure to steal a current police car from one of the local police departments, and attach my own markings.
That way I get to pull people over, and fire warning shots over their heads when they say; “but officer, can’t you just let me off with a warning?”
And those squads are great for high speed pursuits. I always manage to get away…so far.
