The gun control crowd hates stories like this
District Attorney Ed Marsico said 23-year-old Craig Everette II had a right to defend others when he shot and killed 60-year-old Todd Eugene Taylor.
Taylor, 60, of Halifax, went to his estranged wife’s home in the 200 block of Kempton Avenue to confront her boyfriend.
Police said he fired several rounds in front of the house and yelled for the boyfriend, Lawrence Gaul, to come outside.
Taylor was armed with a shotgun and two handguns when he then broke into the home and fired into a bathroom door, wounding Gaul as he tried to take shelter with his girlfriend.
Taylor then went outside to reload the shotgun, went back in the home and began firing through the door.
Everette, the woman’s nephew, fled out a back door when shooting started, but returned and shot Taylor to death.
He then disarmed Taylor and waited for police at a neighbor’s house.
Authorities said he is a combat veteran and a Purple Heart recipient who has no criminal record.
“Mr. Everette’s actions, frankly, saved the lives of the individuals that were holed up in that bathroom,” Marsico said.
Again, if the gun control nuts had their way, this story would be about a mad man killing three innocent people. And, if someone were to say, if only there had been someone with a gun to stop the shooter, the same gun control nuts would have scoffed.
Bob Owens has the story of this junk lawsuit that has no legal basis
The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, also known as the Brady Campaign, has been struggling for relevance in recent years. Long ago supplanted as the “go to” gun control group for media sound bites by Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) and then Moms Demand Action, Brady seems intent on clawing its way back onto the front page with a grandstanding lawsuit against Tennessee-based online ammunition retailer Lucky Gunner.
Brady wants to hold the Internet-based retailer partially responsible for the Aurora Colorado theater shooting, suggesting that they somehow should have been able to screen the shooter, even though there are no mechanisms or federal laws that would allow such an act to take place either online or for in-person sales.
A victim’s parents and a national gun control group plan to sue an online retailer who sold J____ H_____* ammunition and body armor used during the July 2012 Aurora theater shooting, the group announced Monday.
The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence said they, along with Sandy and Lonnie Phillips, whose daughter, Jessica Ghawi, was killed in the theater, will sue Lucky Gunner, which operates BulkAmmo.com.
In court, prosecutors said H_____ bought ammunition and body armor from various online retailers, including bulkammo.com. On the night of the shooting, H_____’ arsenal included an AR-15 assault rifle, two .40-caliber pistols, a shotgun, and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. He was also wearing body armor from head to toe.
According to the Brady Campaign, the lawsuit, which is expected to be filed in Arapahoe County District Court in the coming days, alleges that the websites “negligently supplied Holmes with the arsenal” and failed “to use any screening mechanism to determine his identity or intent for the products.”
This lawsuit is the first in the nation against online sellers of ammunition and military equipment, according to the Brady group, and it is part of a national effort against “Bad Apple” gun dealers that aims to reform the business practices of gun dealers that irresponsibly sell guns. Nationally, just 5 percent of gun dealers account for nearly all of the guns used in crimes, according to the group.
Gun control groups have been trying to sue gun manufacturers, gun stores, and now online ammo sales companies for doing nothing more than conducting legal business. There is ZERO merit to such a suit, but, Brady is hoping, no doubt, that they can find a court wacky enough to award them a settlement. Brady and their ilk will stop at nothing to strip our right to own firearms away, and filing baseless lawsuits or exploiting grieving families is no big deal for these fanatics.

Emails between top Environmental Protection Agency officials reveal they saw their fight against global warming as putting them at “forefront of progressive national policy.”
“You are at the forefront of progressive national policy on one of the critical issues of our time. Do you realize that?” former EPA chief Lisa Jackson asked former EPA policy office head Lisa Heinzerling in a Feb. 27, 2009 email.
“You’re a good boss. I do realize that. I pinch myself all the time,” Heinzerling replied that same day to Jackson, who was using an alias email account under the fake name “Richard Windsor.”
