A Florida Lawmaker Pushing to Loosen State Gun Laws

first_imgRepublican State Rep. Anthony Sabatini has filed the bill, HB 273, in an effort to loosen restrictions on carrying a weapon in Florida.The bill would allow lawful gun owners to carry without a license in areas where concealed carry is typically allowed.It would still prohibit firearms in places like courtrooms and college campuses, but the penalty for bringing a gun there would be reduced from a third-degree felony to a second-degree misdemeanor.Republican State Rep. Anthony Sabatini filed bill that would allow lawful gun owners to carry without a license in areas where concealed carry is typically allowed. (WPEC)The bill also eliminates a requirement to be 21-years-old to carry.Sabatini took to Twitter after filing the bill. He wrote his bill, “deletes the requirement that a person obtain a permission slip from government before concealing a weapon for their self defense—also known as ‘Constitutional Carry.’” He also added, “Our Second Amendment right should not be determined by a government bureaucracy.”The “Constitutional carry” law, is already in place in 16 other states.The bill will be brought up in the 2020 legislative session.last_img read more

Segall Honored for Patriotic Sunset Ceremonies

first_imgThe Daughters of the American Revolution Shrewsbury Chapter presented a community service award this week to Ed Segall, who operated the Sea Gulls’ Nest restaurant and bar at Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook for nearly 50 years. “When we thought of the community service award, his was the first name that came to mind,” said Laura Cramer, the chapter’s corresponding secretary, during the chapter’s meeting, held at the Shrewsbury Historical Society, 619 Sycamore Ave. Segall received the award to honor his longstanding tradition of conducting a daily sunset service, honoring members of the military and veterans, accompanied by patriotic music in the background and ending with the Pledge of Allegiance. The Sea Gulls’ Nest was not open for business this summer, due to the damage caused by Super Storm Sandy last October.

South Africa leads global fugitive hunt

first_imgYusuf Abramjee, head of Crime Line (right) and Assistance Commissioner Vinesh Moonoo at the CSI conference shortly after South Africa was formally welcomed onto the board of directors.A global fugitive round-up operation, recently launched by Crime Stoppers International (CSI), Interpol and various law enforcement agencies, attracted the most interest from South Africa.Primedia’s Crime Line was the local driving force.The announcement was made to hundreds of delegates at the 30th annual CSI conference, which is underway in Broad Beach, Queensland, Australia.At the same time, three South Africans were formally welcomed onto the Board of Directors of the worldwide crime combating body – a first for the African continent.South Africa is being represented at the CSI conference by Crime Line head Yusuf Abramjee. Assistant Police Commissioner Vinesh Moonoo and Senior Superintendent Attie Lamprecht are representing the South African Police Service (SAPS).Crime Line, the anonymous 32211 sms tip-off service, and  www.crimeline.co.za has recorded almost 830 arrests to date and R31-million worth of confiscations.South Africa was the first country to introduce text or sms messaging in the fight against crime just over two years ago and various countries followed. The initiative has the support of national and provincial government and is fully endorsed by the SAPS.NGOs, various media organisations including the SABC, DSTV, Jacaranda FM, Algoa FM, community radio, newspapers and other publications are also proud supporters of Crime Line. The initiative was launched as a Primedia corporate social investment programme in June 2007 and various local and foreign partnerships were quickly formed.Addressing delegates at the CSI conference, Abramjee said: “We will continue to form partnerships and share the South African experience. At the same time, we are here to learn from other countries. We have one global enemy – crime. We must all work together and fight this scourge.”He said South Africa was ready to spread the Crime Line and CSI message to all corners of the African continent. Ghana, Nigeria, Namibia and Botswana are some of the countries that have already shown interest.“In line with the CSI motto, ‘Helping to stop, solve and prevent crime – together’,” we will assist and advise wherever we can,” Abramjee said.Commissioner Moonoo said: “The SAPS encourages communities to continue to blow the whistle on crime. Please pass on information anonymously using Crime Line (sms 32211) or call Crime Stop (08600 10111). The successes achieved thus far are phenomenal. We will also focus more on fugitives in the future.”Speaking at the conference, Field Commander for “Operation Infra-Red” and representative of Australia’s Victoria Police Intelligence and Covert Support Department, Valentine Smith, announced that South Africa recorded the highest number of visits to the CSI website in June 2009 when the operation was launched.Over 120 photographs of the world’s most wanted were posted onto the Crime Line website and many were published in the South African media. There were also links to the Crime Stoppers International (CSI) website.“Almost 40% of the visitors to the CSI website in June were from South Africa. The actual number was 23 313. This is phenomenal considering that we gave Crime Line 48 hours to launch the wanted campaign in South Africa,” said Smith.“We also received a number of tip-offs from South Africa and investigations into many of the cases are continuing,” he said.Eight fugitives were re-captured in various parts of the world, while a further 45 fugitives have possibly been located. Some 37 of these are pending or following extradition processes. Among those recaptured are major drug dealers, murderers, a rapist and sex offenders. Drug smuggler Bruce “Vito” Veniero, who was being sought in the US, was nabbed in Argentina after being on the run for 10 years. He is known as the “Grass King of the US”.Smith said the success of “Operation INFRA-Red” in South Africa was largely due to the massive media support. “Other countries should talk to the South African delegation and learn from them. The media in South Africa must be praised for the awareness it created around this global fugitive round-up operation.”James Schield, Chief Inspector from the United States Marshals Service said “the world is getting smaller. There is an increase in mobility of people. We have to continue to establish relationships all over the globe. The priority is to investigate, locate and arrest fugitives.”Operation INFRA-Red will be back next year. “We will fully support it and based on this year’s success, we will punt it extensively in South Africa and other parts of the continent,” said Abramjee.Commissioner Moonoo said operations to track down wanted criminals in South Africa were “on-going.”The buzzword at this year’s conference was “partnerships”. Communities, law enforcement agencies, business, including the media, have been urged to work “together” in the fight against crime.Delegates from Europe, Asia, US, Canada, the Caribbean and various parts of Australia attended this year’s CSI conference. Speakers included top crime-combating officials from the FBI, Scotland Yard, Australia’s Federal Police and academics.last_img read more

Alberta politicians vote unanimously to back province in oil pipeline fight

first_imgEDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta politicians have passed a motion unanimously to back Premier Rachel Notley’s fight for the Trans Mountain pipeline.The United Conservatives, Alberta Party, and Alberta Liberals joined with Notley’s NDP to back the government motion in support of the project, which would triple the amount of oil flowing from Edmonton to B.C.The final tally was 70-0, with Notley and United Conservative Opposition Leader Jason Kenney in the chamber for the vote. However, some politicians say they still have concerns with how Notley’s government is handling the battle with B.C. and dealing with Ottawa, which has jurisdiction over inter-provincial pipelines.Kenney says Notley should have kept a recently lifted ban on B.C. wine in place, and was late to coming around to embracing the possibility of cutting off oil to B.C. to force the issue.Greg Clark of the Alberta Party says Notley’s government has failed to make the case to B.C. that Alberta shares its concerns and is taking action on climate change.(THE CANADIAN PRESS)last_img read more
