...to attempt to pass city laws regarding firearms? In the extensive news coverage of this past Monday's shooting death of Doris Shavers, the press keep referring to Phillip's (suspect) guns as "unregistered". Registered with who ?!? There is no gun registration in Mississippi. Furthermore, the focus appears to be on the fact that JPD responded to the residence twice on that night prior to the shooting, ran NCIC checks on Phillip's guns, but did not "confiscate" them. Frank, in classic style, has already told the press he has "fired" several police officers. Chief Shirlene "Empty Uniform" Anderson, on the other hand, states that is not true and that the internal affairs investigation is ongoing. I can't help but wonder if Frank is not going to use this incident (which is, without question, a tragedy and a heinous crime) to attempt to enact new laws in Jackson. He might know that he will never get a "gun registration" law passed, but I could see him pushing a city ordinance that states police officers can take away your firearms if the city sees fit. What do you folks think?

In that same vein, does Frank still carry his "unregistered" guns? Were any of his convictions serious enough to take away his carry permit? I guess I should pay better attention to stuff like that, but living in Vicksburg instead of Jackson...

Hope to be at ICORE tomorrow if the weather is good (kid took my truck and my wife is out of town so my only mode of transport only has two wheels and no roof).

That is the plan, Cliff. ICORE till lunch, then over to Brooks' to help him put some siding on his barn. I might want it to rain on the way home after that. The saddlebags and trunk have proven quite waterproof in previous outings. As a matter of fact, so have I. ;)

Gonzo,

A city, in Mississippi, does not have the authority to regulate the carrying of arms within it.. It does, however, have the authority to regulate the discharge of weapons.

He can try all he wants. Just like he tried to shut down gun shows.

Oh, I realize that the law would indicate it would not be possible. However, look at other cities that have, despite what their state constitutions say, instituted "city specific" laws and statutes regarding firearms: San Fran; NYC; Chicago; etc. I could definitely imagine Frank trying to make it happen.

I agree.

Based on his track record, I don't think Frank has much in the way of respect for State or Federal Law, for that matter and would, therefore likely not feel as if he were constrained by any silly ol' law the State of Mississippi has on the books. After all...he's FRANK MELTOOOOOOONNNNN!

Let Frank try.

Too bad I'll probably be in Starkville when he starts with his shenanigans.

Did anybody notice the giant front-page headline on the Clarion Ledger's Sunday Edition? Top left-hand corner, above the fold:

"GUN SEIZURES...Is enough being done to take guns off the streets?"

I'm telling you folks, I see the handwriting on the wall on this one. I don't think he will be succesful, but I think he is going to try.

Please do not upset Frank! When he is this way he is prone to pull over 2 school buses on the shoulder of I20 for hugs, very dangerous.:shocked:

Hey Cliff, wasn't one of those shootings last week on Frank's street? Before we know it he'll have half the Jackson police department guarding his street while the thugs take over the rest of Jackson. I'm gonna have to start driving a lot faster through town.

:50cal: :crazy:
