Mayor defends crime fighting call: We need to be strong in our country
Gerry McAuli공주출장샵ffe defended his proposal Wednesday on social media and said it doesn’t go far enough to stop violent crime.
A month ago, he announced a new approach that would include training police on how to engage with community members who may be in danger and how to do so without going beyond “basic citizen policing tactics” — the police jargon for using officers’ hands to prevent weapons from flowing into the street. Police would also be able to use force if the actions violate those laws.
McAuliffe said the idea “should be a model for the rest of the country because, as we’ve learned, when we make these decisions in this country we really need to apply the same standards across the board. We know you have guns and people and drugs, and violent crime at epidemic levels. … If you do have them and they pose a threat we’ve got to act.”
His office has received “hundreds of comments and hundreds of phone calls about the proposals,” said McAuliffe 부천출장마사지spokesman Michael Czin. “As soon as they hear these proposals they want to talk about them, and they’re going to do so, in order to demonstrate how seriously we take these kinds of concerns.”
The governor’s proposals also appear to place too many “bogus laws” in place for local jurisdictions to have to comply with. Virginia laws prohibit possession of guns by felons, domestic abusers, certain people with mental illness, those who are addicted, those who are homeless and mentally challenged and anyone convicted of domestic violence. In addition, those convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence offense would face up to 30 days in jail and a $1,000 fine, said Richard L. Bell, the attorney general.
Czin said the governor’s call for stronger, more comprehensive gun control laws “puts us at a grave disadvantage in our work to combat violent crime.”
“When laws don’t work as we want them to we have to look for a different, more comprehensive solution,” he said, suggesting a new focus on ending gun violence through treatment. “The answer is prevention of the violence it creates … not criminalization of the perpetrators of the violence.”
The state’s proposal will also require guns to be stor카지노 게임ed in a safe.
“This proposal is in response to concerns we received,” said McAuliffe spokeswoman Catherine Fife. “We will develop a comprehensive strategy that includes both training and additional resources and that requires communities to have laws that respect their rights an
