D.C. Police chief changing stance on guns??
Washington D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has long been one of the most anti-gun police chiefs in the nation. She'll be on 60 minutes tonight at 7:00PM EST. Apparently she's now advocating for the carrying of firearms by citizens due to the rise in active shooter situations and terrorist threats like the recent Paris attacks. She cites police response times as a major problem, so to save lives the attacker should be taken out.

At least a decade ago, wasn't DC one of the guncrime heaviest city regions in the country? I think it's a bit irrational to have that not be the basis for such a believe instead of this outside fear.

If you actually listen to the interview she does not reverse course on her gun stance she merely states that in the off chance that you are involved in a mass shooting you should try to flee the scene or if the opportunity presents itself stop the gunman in contrast to the usual police advice of not trying to stop a crime yourself. She never mentioned guns so not sure where that came from.

I think she didn't want to come right out and say it. She kind of beat around the bush using terms like "take him out" and "put him down." She was being politically correct in my opinion. Especially given where she works and who her bosses are. But most everyone knows what she meant.

I rather doubt she was advocating going up against a shooter unarmed. Consider

Yet she's still only approved 45 CCWs.

Brazil is in the midst of making some big changes to its gun laws.

Brazil Set to Recognize Individual Gun Rights

Quote:Brazil’s congress is set to vote on legislation that would eliminate many of its restrictive gun laws and recognize the right for individuals to own guns for self-protection.

“Brazil is an extremely violent country and the state has failed to resolve this problem,” Laudivio Carvalho of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party, who wrote the legislation, told Time.

“The population needs the right to defend themselves, their family, and their property as they are the ones being attacked. Ninety percent of assaults are being carried out with illegal weapons.”

The bill would remove restrictions that require Brazilian citizens to obtain approval from government officials before purchasing firearms as well as lower the age of ownership from 25 to 21. It would also increase the number of firearms and amount of ammunition Brazilians can purchase each year. However, they would still be limited to nine firearms and 600 rounds of ammunition per year.

ummm .... yeah. I don't see anything about her advocating for carrying of firearms. Like any where in the article. What she is suggesting is the same active shooter training we get every year: "Run. If you can't run hide.. If you can't hide fight." Don't see anything about gun ownership at all anywhere in the article.

ummm ... yeah. Like my comment above, I can't find that quote anywhere in the article. did you post the wrong article?
