Denied once when he tried to get a handgun permit, a Tennessee man got ridiculous on his second attempt.

Robert Hallick, of Chattanooga, Tenn., allegedly forged former American president Barack Obama’s name on a handgun permit application, WTVC reported.

Hallick was arrested last Thursday, according to the report, and tried to get the handgun permit on Jan. 21. He was charged with Perjury, forgery and identity theft, according to the New York Post.

He allegedly sent a $50 cheque and a letter with the official United States of America seal in the application and is accused of using the name “President Barack H. Obama.”

The report said Hallick’s original attempt was denied because he had an active arrest warrant in Michigan.

WARMINGTON: Despite gunshot wound to head, Alyssa Driscoll manages a smile

As of Wednesday at noon, the public has chipped in $5,000 towards a $20,000 goal on GoFundMe

She is far from out of the woods but one thing “miracle” teen Alyssa Driscoll has been able to do for the first time is smile.

The 14-year-old girl who was shot in the head Friday inside her apartment building at 25 Strong Crt. is not the only one feeling better.

“She is looking amazing (and) I thank God for this miracle,” said her father, Brandon Driscoll, in a text to the Toronto Sun through a friend.

“I want to say thank you to everyone who has been there to support Alyssa and help her recover we really appreciate it and so does Alyssa.”

As usual, Sick Kids Hospital has come up big for the girl who easily could have died in the shooting in her unit at Jane St. and Finch Ave. in the early morning hours. Instead, it appears, she’s on the road to recovery, albeit with severe wounds and challenges ahead.

Brandon said the “ICP bolt for her brain is now taken out of her head (and) she is now moved from ICU to the trauma centre.” Most of the tubes have been removed and she’s no longer wearing a neck brace, he said.

“She can fully talk and remember certain things but still one side will need therapy because her left side is still weak for movement,” said Brandon. “This is a miracle for Alyssa to be so strong and to be able to talk right now. She is definitely a warrior and a strong woman. Let’s keep praying for Alyssa to recover to the fullest but she will need lots and lots of medical treatment going forward.”

As of Wednesday at noon, the public has chipped in $5,000 towards a $20,000 goal on GoFundMe at https://gofund.me/6fe6d0c9.

Her paternal grandmother, Rita Stuckey, said all funds will go to her medical expenses going forward. Alyssa’s mother and maternal grandmother have also expressed great concern for her well-being and recovery.

After what happened to 12-year-old Dante Andreatta Marroquin at this same apartment building complex in November, it is lost on no one how close this came to being another child shot in this North York location. Dante died from a stray bullet shot in the building’s parking lot that flew across the street where he and his mom were returning from the grocery store.

Any gunshot is difficult to heal from and treat, let alone one to the head. But while there is a long way to go, Alyssa appears to be doing well. While she recognizes everybody at her bedside and appears to have full understanding where she is, Brandon said she does not seem to know she was shot.

She “is aware she is injured but keeps asking why?”

Her father added, “we don’t say (why),” so she does not get “stressed out.”

Meanwhile, Toronto Police have an extensive investigation underway. They are trying to determine where the gun came from and who fired it. Was it intentional or accidental? Who was in the apartment? Why were they in the apartment?

While there is lot of social media speculation on this case, Supt. Ron Taverner said it’s important to point out that investigators are hard at work on this and no one should speculate or draw conclusions until the investigation is completed. Police are still asking for witnesses to come forward to help paint a picture of what transpired in that apartment prior to this shooting.

In the meantime, the focus is on Alyssa and her recovery. As Taverner and Supt. Pauline Gray have indicated, police and all first responders on scene are pulling for the day Alyssa can leave hospital and get on with her future.

A smile from Alyssa indicates that future that originally looked doubtful, has now been upgraded to hopeful.

The charges in the shooting of Alyssa Driscoll are serious but have been deemed to not have been attempted murder!

While the teen girl has been fighting for her life in Sick Kids hospital after being shot in the head Friday, Toronto Police have been hard at work trying to sort out what happened and locate who is responsible.

Less than a week after the Feb. 12 incident at 25 Stong Ct., police believe the shooting was not intentional.

A 17-year-old boy has been charged in the shooting of 14-year-old. He has also been hit with two counts of not complying with guidelines laid down by the court.

In other words, the justice system had seen this person before.

Police allege the boy was inside Alyssa’s apartment at 3 a.m illegally when he was allegedly involved in the strange shooting of the girl.

She was rushed to hospital where she remains in serious condition but is showing signs of improvement and has even offered some smiles.

“It is alleged that a group of young people were together inside the unit of an apartment building,” police said in a statement released Thursday. “A firearm was discharged and a 14-year-old girl was struck in the head. The suspect and others fled the apartment while the victim was transported to hospital in a life-threatening condition. She is now stable but has life-altering injuries and remains in hospital.”

“The Toronto Police Integrated Gun and Gang Task Force – Centralized Shooting Response Team immediately launched an investigation and on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, a young person was located and arrested without incident.”

Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, we can’t tell you his name but we can list his numerous charges: Unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm knowing it is unauthorized, possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition, careless storage of a firearm, discharge firearm being reckless as to the life or safety of another person, aggravated assault, criminal negligence causing bodily harm and the two counts of fail to comply with release orders.

“This remains an ongoing investigation,” said police.

This is important because there are still many questions about this tragic incident.

Airsoft industry up in arms over new gun bill

Changes introduced in Bill C-21 could put airsoft guns on prohibited list

Canadian airsoft enthusiasts are concerned the redefinition of replica firearms under Bill C-21 — the Federal Liberals’ new firearms legislation — could make their air-powered pellet guns prohibited weapons.

“It looks like it’s doomsday for us at this point,” said Frank Chong, owner of Toronto Airsoft, Canada’s largest airsoft retailer.

Excerpt from Bill C-21

What Bill C-21 does is adds subsections to Sec. 84. of the Criminal Code, deeming firearms prohibited if “the firearm is not designed or adapted to discharge a shot, bullet or other projectile at a muzzle velocity exceeding 152.‍4 m per second or at a muzzle energy exceeding 5.‍7 Joules,” and “designed or intended to exactly resemble, or to resemble with near precision, a firearm.”

The key phrase, said Matt Wasilewicz, owner of wholesaler Canadian Airsoft Imports, is prohibiting firearms not designed to fire projectiles exceeding 152.4 m/s.

“BB and airsoft guns aren’t firearms, so they’re not designed to shoot over 152 (metres per second,)” he said.

“All BB guns and airsoft guns do look like a gun, so everything meets those two criteria.”

Similar to paintball, airsoft is a competitive sport where enthusiasts use realistic-looking ‘firearms’ to shoot 6mm plastic pellets at the opposing team.

“It’s really overtaken paintball as the shooting-sports fun game,” Wasilewicz said.

Part of the draw is the realism, with many spending thousands to ‘look the part’ with realistic-looking weapons and gear — not to mention its use in both police and military training programs.

Both Chong and Wasilewicz stress the high levels of safety embedded in the culture, particularly when dealing with guns that resemble the real thing.

“The most dangerous part of airsoft isn’t necessarily the projectiles we fire,” Chong said

Because of this, airsofters choose to follow many of the same rules firearms owners do, explained Wasilewicz.

OTTAWA — The Trudeau government is moving to repeal mandatory minimum penalties for drug offences and some gun-related crimes, saying they do not make Canadians safer and unfairly affect Indigenous and Black offenders.

Legislation introduced Thursday would also allow for greater use of conditional sentences, such as house arrest, counselling or treatment, for people who do not pose a threat to public safety.

In addition, it would require police and prosecutors to consider alternative measures for cases of simple possession of drugs, such as diversion to addiction-treatment programs.

The office of Justice Minister David Lametti says serious criminals deserve to be punished and kept away from communities.

But it says too many lower-risk and first-time offenders, including a disproportionate number of Indigenous and Black people, are being locked away due to policies that are proven not to deter crime.

The legislation is one of several measures the federal Liberals have promised to address systemic racism in the justice system.

The bill would give judges more discretion in sentencing, rather than the mandatory minimum sentences ushered in by Stephen Harper’s previous Conservative government as part of its tough-on-crime agenda.

Under the Criminal Code, an offence punishable by a mandatory minimum penalty requires that the judge impose a sentence equal to or greater than the minimum term for that offence, even in cases where imprisonment is not appropriate.

Mandatory minimums have been widely criticized for exacerbating the disproportionate number of Black and Indigenous people who wind up jail.

Lametti told a news conference Thursday the planned measures would turn the page on an approach that has not worked.

“It was an approach that did not make our communities safer. It did not deter criminals. It did not make the justice system more effective or more fair,” he said. “Its singular accomplishment has been to incarcerate too many Indigenous people, too many Black people and too many marginalized Canadians.”

Indigenous adults are five per cent of the Canadian population but 30 per cent of admissions to federal custody. Black adults comprise three per cent of the population but 7.2 per cent of federal offenders.

The proposed changes would repeal mandatory minimums for 14 of the 67 offences for which minimums apply under the Criminal Code. Mandatory minimums for all six of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act offences punishable by minimum sentences would be scrapped.

Lametti’s predecessor in the justice portfolio, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was tasked with reviewing mandatory minimum sentences but nothing ever came of it and the government has been facing mounting pressure to act.

Last June, the multi-party parliamentary Black caucus issued a call to action that, among other things, demanded the elimination of mandatory minimums. Lametti was among the signatories.

The HIV Legal Network welcomed the legislation but said it falls short by failing to simply repeal the criminal prohibition on personal drug possession, even while it acknowledges that drug use is a health issue and that criminalization causes harm and contributes to stigma.

The threat of a possible charge for simple possession is “still at play during any interaction between police and people who use drugs,” the group said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has ruled out decriminalizing simple possession of illicit drugs but his government has been moving gradually in the direction of treating drug addiction as a public health issue rather than a criminal issue.

Consistent with the Liberals’ approach, the director of public prosecutions issued new guidelines last summer instructing federal prosecutors to criminally prosecute only the most serious drug-possession offences and to find alternatives outside the criminal justice system for the rest.

Lametti indicated it was not his place to go further, saying only that he would like to see a health-care response to problematic addiction.

“We’re going to try to move forward in the most efficient, productive and compassionate way possible.”

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to crack down on gun crime, then on Thursday his government introduced legislation to reduce sentences for serious gun crimes including weapons trafficking and importing.

The Liberals are getting rid of a series of mandatory minimum sentences even for people convicted multiple times of gun offences.

It goes completely against what Trudeau said on Tuesday.

“In some of our cities, gun crimes are on the rise. This is unacceptable,” Trudeau said using sombre tones. “No one should be afraid of being a victim of a sniper or a stray bullet. As a parent, I know full well that our greatest fear is receiving a tragic call, telling us that the worst has happened.”

He said that as his government introduced a bill, C-21, that primarily changes which firearms a legally licensed gun owner can possess. You’ve likely heard of the government’s plan to ban 1,500 “military-style assault weapons.”

That’s what they want you to think of when you think of their gun control measures. They ban these rifles and shotguns, which are not used in crimes while invoking the kinds of shootings that have plagued our cities over the past several years.

Mandatory minimum sentences are being removed for a long list of offences including:

– Use of firearm in commission of offence

– Possession of restricted or prohibited weapon knowing possession is unauthorized

– Possession of loaded handgun

– Possession of weapon obtained through crime

– Weapons trafficking

– Unauthorized import/export of firearm

– Illegal discharge of a firearm with intent

– Robbery with firearm

– Extortion with firearm

The government put these changes into a bill they described as dealing with systemic racism in Canada’s justice system and making sure that people who make simple mistakes don’t pay for them for the rest of their lives.

“These are people with health problems. These are single mothers. These are young people who perhaps have made a couple of mistakes,” Justice Minister David Lametti said while introducing his bill.

It sounds nice and it pulls on the heartstrings, but it’s also a load of BS.

Take the removal of mandatory minimums for knowingly possessing an illegal firearm. Right now there is no mandatory minimum on someone’s first offence, a minimum of one year on a second offence and a minimum of three years on a third offence.

Being caught with illegal guns three times isn’t making a “couple of mistakes,” it is repeatedly engaging in dangerous criminal behavior, the kind the government claims it wants to stop.

The legislation also removes one-year mandatory minimum sentences for charges related to smuggling and trafficking in illegal guns. Isn’t that exactly what the government claims they want to stop?

Lametti made repeated claims on Thursday that mandatory minimums were a failed Conservative policy that Canadians have rejected. This is false.

Mandatory minimums have been part of Canada’s criminal code since at least the time of Pierre Trudeau, who introduced some, as have other Liberal governments.

The Harper government started using minimum sentences in response to outrage over light sentences for serious crimes. Voters loved them for a time and it’s likely the Harper government went too far.

That doesn’t mean they have no place in our system. The minimums being repealed by the Trudeau government for guns crimes are mostly light and not punitive.

With this bill, Justin Trudeau is showing he isn’t serious about dealing with actual gun crime and any claims otherwise are simply electoral smoke and mirrors.

Trudeau should recuse himself from something he knows nothing about! The trick is to identify people who shouldn't touch a gun and deal with them and leave the guns alone. Guns don't do anything, people do!

Remember that 14 year old girl that was shot in the head in Toronto?

A 17-year-old Toronto boy is now facing a list of charges, including unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm knowing it is unauthorized, possession of a prohibited/restricted firearm with ammunition, careless storage of a firearm, discharging firearm being reckless as to the life or safety of another person, aggravated assault, criminal negligence causing bodily harm, and two counts of failing to comply with a release order.
