Every media outlet in the country is reporting a shooting incident at the Marysville-Pilchuk high school in Marysville (north of Seattle), Washington.  Information is still sketchy, at least real information.  It is generally acknowledged that at last six people have been shot and possibly as many as nine.  One person is dead, that person is believed to have been the shooter.  Cause of death appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot

According to broadcast news today (10-23) there is another likely case of Ebola, this time in the Big Apple.  This is not a secondary or subsequent exposure (if it is a real case at all), at least not from a US source.  This man is a medical doctor who was recently in West Africa.  Unfortunately he has been wandering around NYC for some time before his symptoms got bad enough

Evan Michael Pimental, 24, is upset with the Hayward PD.  His mother, Ariel Levy, 62, was shot to death by Hayward cops on February 4 of this year in what could reasonably be described as suicide-by-cop.  He thinks they should have gotten her psychological help instead of killing her.  Maybe true, but when somebody is coming at you with what looks like a loaded .45 pistol you don’t usually have

Heckler & Koch VP9 The Gun of the Week this time around is the Heckler & Koch VP9 police duty pistol.  This is a striker-fired pistol as opposed to a hammer-fired pistol.  H&K hasn’t had a new striker-fired gun since the squeeze-cocker was introduced.  It has the now-ubiquitous polymer frame. This is a very ergonomic handgun, it comes with a supply of interchangeable palm swells and backstraps so that the weapon can be made to fit almost any size of hand.
