Gun Sales Hit Record in 2012; a Spike in Purchases Expected After School Shooting

People are buying guns in record numbers.

The FBI recorded nearly 17 million background checks of gun purchases in 2012, the most since the bureau began compiling the date in 1998, the Huffington Post reports.

Since the background checks don’t include multiple gun purchases, the number of guns sold this year are likely a lot higher, the Huffington Post wrote.

Experts expect last week’s school shooting in Connecticut to cause another spike in gun buys particularly as some members of Congress press to ban assault weapons.

But experts aren’t sure what caused the increase in gun ownership this year, the Huffington Post reported.

Federal Agents Group Blasts Senator

By DEVLIN BARRETT
Wall Street Journal

WASHINGTON — An organization of federal agents blasted an anonymous senator who is blocking a bill that would clarify how agents are allowed to assist in responding to major incidents such as the elementary school shooting in Connecticut.

According to the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, an unknown U.S. senator placed what is known as a “hold” on the Investigative Assistance for Violent Crimes Act. The bill is one the Federal Bureau of Investigation sought to clarify that federal law enforcement agents are acting in the scope of their employment when they respond to violent incidents like a mass shooting, in which there is no immediate evidence of violations of federal law.

“It is an absolute outrage that one senator cowering behind the curtain has placed an anonymous hold on the mass killings legislation,” said Jon Adler, president of FLEOA, which advocates on behalf of federal agents.

Column: Shouldn’t We Do More to Avoid Mass Deaths By Crazed Gunmen?

During my visits to Israel, the idea of security was never far off. At the train station, at the bus stop, I went through a metal detector. An armed guard checked through packages and asked if I was carrying a gun.

After Sept. 11, 2001, I thought the U.S. would have second thoughts about security in public places, particularly with the threat of terrorism looming here.

I figured maybe places like malls or movie theaters might consider screening customers.

But no. That hasn’t happened. Americans have a way of conveniently forgetting or deferring such concerns until the next tragedy.

All around the country, we’re seeing all too often crazed gunmen — homegrown terrorists if you will — open fire on innocent citizens. Each incident is a reminder that we probably aren’t doing enough.

Border Patrol Stops Offering Language Interpreters to Local Law Enforcement Agencies

By Steve Neavling

When law enforcement agencies need help translating a language, they often call the U.S. Border Patrol for help.

But under a new decree issued by the Department of Homeland Security, Border Patrol agents won’t be used as interpreters for local authorities, the Huffington Post reports.

The idea, Border Patrol officials said, is to keep the agency focused on protecting the borders.

“The new guidance related to requests for translation services helps further focus CBP efforts on its primary mission to secure our nation’s borders.” a statement by Customs and Border Protection said. “CBP remains committed to assisting our law enforcement partners in their enforcement efforts.”

Immigration rights groups have long opposed the Border Patrol’s involvement, saying people were being arrested on suspicion of being in the country illegally, the Huffington Post wrote.

Homeland Security Department Ranked Most Unsatisfying Workplace Among Federal Agencies

Working has its drawbacks for anyone.

But among federal agencies, the Department of Homeland Security was ranked the most unsatisfying workplace, U.S. News reports.

The survey, “The Best Places to Work in the Federal Government,” ranked DHS last for effective leadership, teamwork, support for diversity and training and development, U.S. News wrote.

DHS employs 240,000 people.

Where was the best place to work? The National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Seems exploring space leads to a better work environment than chasing terrorists, the U.S. News reported.
