The other seven council members' names remain on the bills.




    I did not. I simply copy pasted what was there. Perhaps they updated it.

    I even reported on it last month.

    I do remember thinking "I thought they did it last month."

    No problem! I'm not known for trying to mislead poofers, and I expect to be called out if I am. Now that it appears that I may have, I want to clear my name. As such, I emailed the the author and here's the conversation.

    Ashley

    Was your piece about the gun control bills updated after it was published?

    https://www.post-gazette.com/local/c...MTIdCsUnGK4Y-I


    Thanks

    Justin


    Hi Justin,

    Yes, the line "Perhaps fitting for the controversial issue, even the proposal to hold an extra meeting spurred disagreement" was added later in the evening for the print version, which was then updated online. The line did not change the content of the piece; it just added a transition. Did you have a concern?

    Thank you for reading,
    Ashley



    Yesterday I quoted the article, this specifically,

    “We want to get facts,” Ms. Kail-Smith said.

    Ms. Harris and Ms. Kail-Smith pulled their names from sponsorship of the gun bills, which aim to ban assault-style weapons and certain gun accessories and ammunition within city limits as well as establish a process for courts to remove weapons from the possession of people who pose an “extreme risk” to themselves or others. The other seven council members' names remain on the bills."


    And I noticed that the words "last month" are now in the paragraph to read "last month pulled their names...,"

    I was just wondering if the words "last month were added? It doesn't look they were so I suppose I copy pasted incorrectly some how.

    Thanks!

    Justin



    Yes, just checked, and my editor added "last month" to make the timeline clear. Thank you for reaching out.




    Thank you very much! I was at the meeting last month and that's what I remembered.

    Thanks again!

    Justin

    I'm glad we got that cleared up but the thought that they did it due to the rally was great while it lasted.
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.

    There's still strife as indicated in the article, so that is good news.

    Last night, I sent a 6 page letter (Times New Roman, 12pt, double spaced) to each city council member detailing "facts." It was free from "come and take it" and "will not comply" type stuff. Just facts, including the fact that in 2018, 70% of shooting murders we committed by African Americans in some pretty specific neighborhoods, as compared to whites that committed 28% of the shooting murders sporadically over the city. No discernible pattern to be found. You can find this info at the interactive map below. I then pointed out that according to demographics, the city is 65% white vs 26% black. So why is the minority community committing more shooting murders than the majority community, by far? That's your problem to go after. Not the AR15 boogey man. I suggested that they looked at the poverty level of those neighborhoods and I bet they would find a connection.

    Anyway, that's just one of the data sets that I went through for them. The point of this post is that I received a reply for O'Conner's Chief of Staff stating that he would ensure that Mr. O'Conner reads my letter. I also opened myself up to be willing to meet with Mr. O'Conner as well.



    Here's to hoping he's interested in facts, but I have my doubts.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to JustinHEMI again.

    While the facts do not lie and acknowledging them would be the 1st step towards resolving them be prepared to be called a racist or bigot for pointing out the obvious. Coloin Noir was doing a complete series on this very issue in cities all across the country. Calling out politicians on the extreme poverty and social environments keep people in is the reason for the violence and not the tool they choose to use. The videos can be found on his youtube page and on NRA tv.
