Seems the same Press Releases were also deleted from Facebook. Thanks for any help in locating these

Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

4 People Shot – So Far – On Gun Appreciation Day

Written by Eric on January 19, 2013.

 



UPDATE:  Think Progress now has the count up to 5
 
In an accident with uncanny timing, two people were injured at a gun show in Raleigh, North Carolina, when someone’s gun went off after they accidentally left a round in the chamber while presenting it to a law enforcement officer for a safety check at the entrance of the event, emergency personnel had to be called to the scene.
 
Both victims were transported to an area hospital, and the Raleigh Fire Department announced that the show would be closed for the rest of the day.
 
Two similar incidents occurred at entirely separate gun shows in the Midwest, one in the Cleveland suburb of Medina, Ohio and the other at the state fairgrounds in Indianapolis, Indiana. In Ohio, the local ABC affiliate reports that one individual was brought to a hospital by EMS, and in Indiana Channel 8 WISH says that an individual shot himself in the hand while trying to reload his gun in the show parking lot. That brings the tally to 4 victims of gun violence so far at three different gun shows during the country’s first Gun Appreciation Day.

3 injured after shotgun accidentally fires at N.C. gun show
 

By Michael Martinez, CNN
 
updated 6:56 PM EST, Sat January 19, 2013

(CNN) -- A 12-gauge shotgun loaded with bird shot accidentally discharged Saturday when the owner opened its case at a gun show at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, injuring a retired sheriff's deputy and two other people, police said.
 
The gun owner, a 36-year-old man from Wilmington, North Carolina, was carrying the weapon through security at the show entrance and was unfastening the case on a table, authorities said. The owner planned to sell the shotgun at the show.
 
The deputy suffered a slight injury to his hand and was treated and released at a local hospital, said Joel Keith, chief of police of the North Carolina State Fair.
 
A 54-year-old woman from Benson, North Carolina, was being treated a wound to her right torso at a local hospital, and a 50-year-old man from Durham, North Carolina, was treated for an injured left hand, Keith told reporters.
 
"I want to emphasize that this is an accident," Keith said.
 
Wake County sheriff's investigators and the local prosecutor will determine whether to file charges against the shotgun owner, authorities said.
 
Detectives began interviewing the owner shortly after the 1 p.m. shooting, authorities said.
 
Sheriff Donnie Harrison said he was unsure whether it was legal to bring a loaded gun on state fairgrounds.
 
However, when the state fair is held in October, it is illegal to bring a loaded gun to the fairground because of the large crowds, authorities said.
 
Investigators will consult with the Wake County district attorney's office about Saturday's incident, the sheriff said.
 
"This is state property. That's something we're looking into," Harrison told reporters. "It's early right now."
 
Police are now banning any private gun sales -- in which visitors bring their firearms to sell at the gun show -- for the remainder of the two-day Dixie Gun & Knife Show, which concludes Sunday, Keith said. The gun show was closed after the shooting and will reopen Sunday.
 
Show vendors, however, can continue to sell firearms, which are already secured inside the show, Keith said.
 
"If we thought if it was a problem or a hazard, we wouldn't have this show," Keith said about private gun sales at the show. "I'm sure there isn't anybody who hates this more than the guy who owned this weapon."
 
At one point during Saturday's press conference, Keith added there wouldn't be any private gun sales on fairgrounds for the indefinite future.
 
Reforming private gun sales -- at shows or anywhere else -- is among the changes that President Barack Obama is now seeking by requiring background checks.
 
Currently, federal law requires background checks on gun sales by federally licensed firearms dealers, who are often among the vendors at gun shows.
 
On Saturday, authorities didn't address at a press conference whether they had conducted any background check on the shotgun owner.
 
Keith witnessed the aftermath of the accidental shooting, he said.
 
"People didn't panic and people acted very responsibly," Keith said. "I couldn't have asked any officer to respond any better."
 
The retired sheriff's deputy was back in the office immediately after being released from the hospital, Keith said.

Firearms Instructor Leaves Handgun In School Bathroom


Written by Eric on January 18, 2013.


A prosecutor in Lapeer, Michigan says, “No harm, no foul,” after a charter school took the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) advice and hired a armed security guard who promptly left his handgun unattended in a student bathroom.
Chatfield School co-directors Matt Young and Bill Kraly announced last week that they had hired retired Lapeer County Sheriff’s Dept. firearms instructor Clark Arnold as a security guard in response to the December mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
 
The security officer “made a breach in security protocol” and left an unloaded weapon in a restroom “for a few moments,” said Chatfield School Director Matt Young.
Young said the school has been in contact with local authorities about the matter and wouldn’t discuss any possible repercussion for the officer, calling it “a personnel matter.” Young also declined to name the security officer.
“The school has put additional security procedures in place that follow local law enforcement practices and guidelines,” Young said in a statement. “At no time was any student involved in this breach of protocol. We will continue to work on improving school security.”
>MLive 01/16/2013
Lapeer County Prosecutor Byron Konschuh said since nobody was harmed, the incident likely would not constitute a criminal charge.
“If you left a gun unattended and a toddler finds it and shoots and hurts someone, it could be some kind of reckless use of a firearm,” Konschuh said.
Since that did not happen, it’s likely no criminal act was committed, Konschuh added.
“It’s almost like no harm no foul.”
