Police Shoot Firefighter Mistaking Wallet For Gun

Police Shoot Firefighter Mistaking Wallet For Gun Cop gunned down an unarmed firefighter after they mistook his wallet for a gun. The police claim he exited his car and was holding what turned out to be his wallet in a “combat position.” What a country this is where you can gun someone for down for holding their wallet in a threatening manner.

Court Backs Obama Border Gun Rule

A second federal appeals court has unanimously upheld an Obama administration requirement that gun dealers in four Southwestern border states report to the federal government when customers buy multiple high-powered rifles. Thursday’s ruling by the New Orleans-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit endorsed a lower appeals court’s dismissal of a gun dealer’s challenge to the requirement, which went into effect in 2011 and was billed by the government as an attempt to stem the flow of guns to Mexican drug cartels, Politico reported.
