Officer charged with killing unarmed driver lying facedown

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania police officer was charged Tuesday with criminal homicide after investigators concluded she shot an unarmed motorist in the back as he lay facedown after a traffic stop over an expired inspection sticker.

Authorities accused Hummelstown police Officer Lisa J. Mearkle of shooting 59-year-old David Kassick twice on Feb. 2 without legal justification. She was released on $250,000 bail.

Her attorney, Brian Perry, said Mearkle acted in self-defense, and he warned the case could cause police officers to hesitate in high-pressure situations.

A vending machine operated by a candidate for Beaver County Sheriff that distributes firearms ammunition is raising some eyebrows. The machine is installed inside of the Beaver Valley Rifle & Pistol Club, offering both rifle and handgun ammunition and operating in the same fashion as vending machines commonly used to sell snack foods.

This Town Has The Best, Most Welcoming ‘Gun-Free Zone’ Signs Ever

A slice of rural, pastoral awesomeness in south central Pennsylvania has posted signs on each of four incoming roads proclaiming the local gun-ownership situation to law-abiding visitors and would-be criminals alike.

Conoy Township, Pa. (pop: maybe 3,300) is the hamlet with the signs. They read: ”Welcome to Conoy Twp. THIS IS NOT A GUN FREE ZONE.”

The heat-packing city fathers of Conoy Township have plans to post a dozen more of the signs in the weeks ahead, reports LancasterOnline, a local news website.

Barely a week after taking effect, a novel state law that makes it easier for gun-rights groups to challenge local firearms measures in court is already sparking change: Nearly two dozen Pennsylvania municipalities have agreed to get rid of their potentially problematic ordinances rather than face litigation.

Joshua Prince, an attorney for four pro-gun groups and several residents, cited the new law in putting nearly 100 Pennsylvania municipalities on notice that they would face legal action unless they rescinded their firearms laws.

Research Services Requested: Falling Down the Rabbit Hole, Again

I found an article telling of one Charles W.F. Dumas who was very involved in the Revolution of '76 and just so happened to involve himself in the intellectual debates of the Continental Congress that would later draft the Declaration of Independence. He republished a book that the delegates used to debate the proper articulations of "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness' and made his own additions. I AM LOOKING FOR THAT BOOK. It's price, It's location, It's publication date, It's everything. Maybe someone who lives in Philly would like to stop by and ask those that work here? :) Yes, I've google'd it (and then some) but to no avail. So, Please help! I've fallin down the rabbit hole and I can't get out.
