Long Island Hospitals To Ask About Gun Ownership

From Newsday:

Starting later this month, Northwell staff at two Long Island hospitals and a third on Staten Island will add a question to their routine screening of emergency room patients: Do you have a gun in your house?
The question is part of a new screening program designed to analyze patients’ risk for firearm injury.
The program will be funded under a $1.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health that Northwell received to study gun violence prevention.

Marcus Luttrell Speaks About Vandalized SEAL Memorial

From The Blaze:

“I’m sure I felt just like you did…when you get a hold of the guy, make sure you give me a call, so I can come down and hang out with him for a while,” Luttrell said on “Fox &  Friends.”

“But then I heard it was a 14-year-old boy, and um, I made a lot of mistakes when I was 14. I think we all did. Sometimes when we’re coming into our own, becoming a man, you’re confused,” he added. “It’s tough.”

Son Makes Threats, Dad Has Pistol License Revoked

From HauppaugePatch:

According to Mayer, his son spoke with a few of his classmates about a pushing incident on the schoolyard, and although Mayer’s son was not involved in the scuffle, he and two of the other boys talked about bringing a water, paintball and BB gun with them to the house of the classmates that did the pushing. While Mayer’s lawyer said that none of the boys actually have any of the toy guns mentioned, word about the perceived threats got around to the principal, who not only suspended Mayer’s son for two days, but also filed a police report.
