Two teens shot at community center,
just before Memphis mayor launches
campaign against youth gun violence

Commercial Appeal [Memphis, TN], by Michael Lollar *

Just an hour before Memphis Mayor A C Wharton unveiled a plan on Friday to attack gun use by teenagers, two teenagers were wounded in a gun battle in the parking lot of the Westwood Community Center in southwest Memphis. "Enough is enough," said Wharton, who had made a similar protest when he appeared at Westwood in September to condemn a killing at the same community center. "There are too many doggone guns on our streets," the mayor said Friday. "All you have to do is watch the news, read the newspapers and in some neighborhoods walk out on the

"If only the mayor had bumped that speech up by an hour, this would never have happened." "If only we passed laws against guns, they´ll stop breaking laws and killing one another." "If only..."

Does everyone know why (?) the government doesn´t want to uphold the laws that are the books that we have currently have in place about guns and murder??????? Huh, Huh, Huh??? Because most of these violent offenders are what color????? What race???? SURE there are some white but more times out of any when you read the names of the people involved what color are they? Wake up folks. If you let them have your guns we will be running from these people like in Africa...and to save bullets there they give the gangs and thugs machettes. MOLON LABE (NOTICE) Government officials have exempted themselves from giving up their firearms. MOLON LABE!!!

Why haven´t they posted more "No Gun" signs? I think some new Laws may be in order...First, Outlaw schools..if you truly want to end school shootings you must stop it at the source. Next, outlaw teenagers. Just pass a mandate that counting jumps from 12 straight to 20.(or perhaps 12 needs to last eight years...better get a reading from Legal on that)

it is as clear to me as the day is long that this country is waist deep in a pit full of alligators -- and the alligators are Principled Leader and his groupies in the media who give him giggles and do his bidding with these kinds of dirty deeds done dirt cheap that purport to be acts of journalism.
You want to talk gun violence, Commies?
How about 1940: Katyn Forest Massacre --20,000 UNARMED Polish Citizens methodically shot dead by Mother Government.... Etc Etc etc etc etc.

The mayor noticed there´s a lot of violence going on. Must have just gotten cable TV. Or started taking the newspaper.

FTA: "There are too many doggone guns on our streets," the mayor said Friday.

Guns. Too many guns says the mayor.

But -- cops with guns were sent to the school.

FTA: "You´re going to see more patrols," said [police director] Armstrong. "You´re going to see more two-man cars...."

But -- more patrols means more guns. Two-man cars mean more guns.

How do I tell which guns are "bad" guns and which guns are "good" guns?

#5 - Perfect.
That´s what I was going to say.
There are too many blacks with guns on our streets.

Crime committed by blacks is through the roof.
Blacks should be considered assault and battery weapons. Real killing machines.

Can we call them what they are, either black or white, Bast Ards? The break down of the family and girls getting knocked up and dropping babies and no one to raise them IS THE Problem.... Heck, I see it here in NE TN. grandparents having to raise the little ones and the "parent" kids are still doing drugs....

Another article with no mention of parents.
Lock the mothers up with the feral youth.
Change the laws for juveniles, put their behinds in prison and let older criminals have at them.

Given the situation, when they take guns from law abiding citizens, they will have no defense against criminals.

Please note that politicians will be exempt from new gun laws just like Zippycare.

The article referenced a Crip... so assuming the targeted area is black, expect the NAACP & ACLU to shut him down.

The only way to reduce gun crime is to increase sentence guidelines & make them mandatory... ie., no sliding out free with a slick atty.

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing. "There is no legitimate reason for the IRS to know who donates to Campaign for Liberty," the organization´s Communications Director Megan Stiles told the Washington Examiner in an e-mail April 15.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

The news has those in the coffee industry worried. "I am very concerned," said Mauricio Galindo, head of International Coffee Organization. "I would say climate change is the most serious threat to the sustainability of the coffee supply chain right now." The IPCC says that a temperature rise of just 2 to 2.5 centigrades

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
