Police identify man who claimed to have bomb, fired at officers, as King Justice Allah

The story also reads as some kind of a bizarre comedy.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Authorities have identified a man who they say opened fire on police officers and threatened them with a bomb at a Goodyear intersection.

Goodyear police say 25-year-old King Justice Allah has been identified as the suspect who opened fire at officers on May 13 at the intersection of McDowell and Pebble Creek Parkway.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found Allah laying on the sidewalk and bleeding from self-inflicted wounds. Allah told officers he had a gun and a bomb inside a backpack that he was carrying.

When officers tried to negotiate with Allah, he opened fire at police.

Officers then returned fire and shot Allah. He was transported to a hospital, where he remained hospitalized until May 21.

Through their investigation, police learned Allah fired at officers with a CO2 cartridge gun.

Allah has been booked on five counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, one count of false emergency reporting and cause action explosive device.

Hillary Clinton Opposes Heller Gun Rights Ruling, Adviser Says

Hillary Clinton believes a 2008 Supreme Court ruling that is the linchpin of an individual's right to own a gun was "wrongly decided," her policy adviser told Bloomberg Politics on Friday.

"Clinton believes Heller was wrongly decided in that cities and states should have the power to craft common sense laws to keep their residents safe, like safe storage laws to prevent toddlers from accessing guns," Maya Harris, a policy adviser to Clinton, said in an e-mailed statement. "In overturning Washington D.C.'s safe storage law, Clinton worries that Heller may open the door to overturning thoughtful, common sense safety measures in the future."

The stance by Clinton, the all-but-certain Democratic presidential nominee, carries potentially profound implications for the future of gun rights in the U.S.

In striking down a longstanding handgun ban in the District of Columbia, the D.C. v. Heller ruling marked the first time the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment protected an individual's right to own a firearm for lawful purposes such as self-defense in the home.

Of course. The NRA endorsed Trump so Hillary is now anti-second amendment. No votes in being gun friendly.

She's pandering to a very small minority for those votes.
Americans in Agreement With Supreme Court on Gun Rights

Nearly three in four say Second Amendment guarantees right of Americans to own guns

PRINCETON, NJ -- The Supreme Court's ruling on Thursday that a District of Columbia ban on handgun ownership is unconstitutional appears to be solidly in step with public opinion. A clear majority of the U.S. public -- 73% -- believes the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the rights of Americans to own guns. And almost 7 out of 10 Americans are opposed to a law that would make the possession of a handgun illegal, except by the police.

Islamic State calls for attacks on the West during Ramadan

"And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."
~Barack Obama, June 4, 2009
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A new message purporting to come from the spokesman of Islamic State calls on followers to launch attacks on the United States and Europe during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which begins in early June.

"Ramadan, the month of conquest. Get prepared, be ready ... so that you make it a month of calamity on the non-believers anywhere," said the message, purporting to be from Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, suggesting attacks on military and civilian targets.

The audio clip was distributed on Saturday by Twitter accounts that usually publish Islamic State statements. Its authenticity could not be independently verified.
