Moms Across The Country Want Justice For 8-Year-Old Boy Shot In The Face In Texas.

Moms Across the Country Want Justice for 8-Year-Old Boy Shot in the Face in Texas

 

by Moms Demand Action

 

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America calls on Dallas District Attorney and lawmakers to respond after another case of horrific gun violence.

 

Donald-Maiden-Jr.-320x196

 

 

Last month in Dallas, Texas, a stranger shot an 8-year-old boy in the face while he was playing tag outside his home. Once again, an innocent child was a victim of our nation’s gun violence epidemic. Moms are outraged by this continued violence, and by our elected officials, who sit idly by, kowtowing to a vengeful gun lobby.

 

Local police arrested Brian Cloninger, 46, for the shooting of Donald Maiden, Jr. on Sept. 3 and charged him with injury to a child. While no clear motive for the shooting has been determined – the only witness is 8-year-old Donald, whose mouth is wired shut as he attempts to recover – Cloninger admitted to bystanders that he had shot the child, “Because I wanted to.”

 

Cloninger was serving a 15-month probationary sentence for a DWI at the time of the shooting. In 2002, he had previously been charged with DUI in Florida. Although he was not allowed to consume alcohol while on probation, police found a beer can in his truck after the shooting.

 

“This is a man with a record of making decisions that show a clear disregard for human life,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “The fact that he was able to obtain a gun is exactly why gun reform is so desperately needed. Until we fix this, our children will continue to pay the highest price.”

 

American children and teens are 17 times more likely to die from guns than their peers in other developed countries, and gun violence is the leading cause of death for black children, according to the Children’s Defense Fund. In addition, one American child or teen is shot and killed every 3 hours and 15 minutes.

 

At the time of his arrest, Cloninger bail was set at $2.2 million. It has since been reduced to $1 million.

 

“Someone who is accused of and has admitted to a crime this depraved deserves not even the slightest appearance of leniency from the court,” said Watts. “Dangerous people like Cloninger not only deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but they should not have access to firearms in the first place.”

About Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America

 

Much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving was created to reduce drunk driving, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (www.momsdemandaction.org) was created to demand action from legislators, state and federal; companies; and educational institutions to establish common-sense gun reforms. We are a non-partisan grassroots movement of American mothers demanding new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws, loopholes and policies that for too long have jeopardized the safety of our children and families.

 

Moms Demand Action supports the 2nd Amendment, but we believe common-sense solutions can help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence that kills an American child every 3 hours and 15 minutes. Whether the gun violence happens in urban Chicago, suburban Virginia, or rural Texas, we must act now on new and stronger gun laws and policies to protect our children.

 

Moms Demand Action envisions a country where all children and families are safe from gun violence. Our nonpartisan grassroots movement is made up of more than 100,000 members and a chapter in every state across the country. We are educating, motivating, and mobilizing moms and families to take action that will result in stronger laws and policies to save lives. We support these solutions to help address gun violence in the United States:

  1. Require background checks for all gun and ammunition purchases;
  2. Ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds;
  3. Track the sale of large quantities of ammunition, and ban online sales;
  4. Establish product safety oversight of guns and ammunition, and require child-safe gun technology;
  5. Support policies at companies and public institutions that promote gun safety;
  6. Counter the gun industry’s efforts to weaken gun laws at the state level.

 

We are facing a public health crisis: Nearly eight American children are shot and killed every day. Anything else responsible for this many deaths would be immediately investigated and regulated. Not a single federal law has been passed in decades to prevent gun violence – not after Columbine and not after Newtown.

 

For too long, those who stand to profit from easy access to guns have controlled the conversation about gun violence. American families are being destroyed and mothers have had enough; we will no longer stand by and let Congress, companies and colleges turn their back on sensible gun laws and policies. We are organizing to effectively lobby and apply pressure that will result in stronger, sensible gun laws and policies that will protect our children and families. The momentum is with us, and we are in this for the long haul.

 

American mothers are an important voice that, when harnessed, will wield significant change. We may be accidental activists, but we are the wave of change in America. For more information on joining, volunteering, finding a local chapter or donating, please go to www.momsdemandaction.org. We can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MomsDemandAction and on Twitter at @momsdemand.

George Zimmerman Just Won’t Go Away.


 

By Jueseppi B.

George Zimmerman has been involved in two separate traffic incidents in two different states in the two and a half weeks since he was cleared of the murder and manslaughter of Trayvon Martin Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2382127/The-moment-George-Zimmerman-pulled-cops-Texas-speeding-Sunday--told-GUN-going-particular.html#ixzz2afcJiwfI  Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook

George Zimmerman has been involved in two separate traffic incidents in two different states in the two and a half weeks since he was cleared of the murder and manslaughter of Trayvon Martin

 

VIDEO Dashcam footage of George Zimmerman pulled over for speeding in northern Texas

 

Published on Jul 31, 2013

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) — CBS 11 News has learned that George Zimmerman, the man recently found not guilty for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida, was armed when an officer pulled him over for speeding in North Texas.

 

Zimmerman was pulled over on July 28 at 12:54 p.m., while traveling westbound on Highway 80 in Forney, a Kaufman County city about 20 miles east of Dallas.

 

When Zimmerman was pulled in a gray-colored Honda pickup with Florida tags he told the policeman he was armed. The officer instructed him to put the weapon in his glove compartment and said that if after checking his background, and if there were no criminal issues, he could go on his way. The entire incident was captured on the officer’s dashcam.

WATCH: Dashcam Footage Of George Zimmerman Getting Pulled Over For Speeding

 
As we reported earlier, while driving through East Texas on Sunday afternoon, George Zimmerman was stopped by police for exceeding the speed limit.

 

The recently-acquitted Florida resident was pulled over near Forney, Texas, shortly after noon, telling police he was headed “nowhere in particular.” The stop lasted around five minutes and concluded with the officer concluding no outstanding warrants and telling the 29-year-old to “have a safe trip.”

 

 

 

 

The moment George Zimmerman was pulled over by cops in Texas for speeding on Sunday: He told officers he had a GUN and was ‘going nowhere in particular

 

  • George Zimmerman pulled over driving cross-country in Forney, Texas for speeding on Sunday
  • Told the officer that he was carrying a gun and was advised to place it in his glove compartment
  • The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman – even after the 29-year-old checked
  • Was issued with a warning and sent on his way – telling the officer he ‘was going nowhere in particular’
  • Second traffic related incidence in the space of two weeks involving Zimmerman

 

By JAMES NYE

Dash-cam footage emerged today showing the moment that George Zimmerman was pulled over by a police officer in Texas for speeding and told them he was carrying a gun.

 

Just over two weeks since his dramatic acquittal for the murder of Trayvon Martin, 17, Zimmerman was issued the warning on Sunday in Forney, Texas, just 25 miles from Dallas.

 

The latest traffic incident comes a week-and-a-half after Zimmerman rescued a family-of-four from their upturned SUV over a thousand miles away in Florida, near  where he shot Martin dead.

 

 

article-2382127-1B163732000005DC-922_634x415

 

 

With Zimmerman facing death threats following his acquittal, his brother Robert said that his family have to deal with rumors about his whereabouts every day.

 

He added that they go to great lengths to ensure their safety in accordance with the law.

 

CBS Dallas Fort Worth have claimed that the officer did not recognize Zimmerman, who has been at the center of a nationwide controversy since he was found not guilty of the second-degree murder and manslaughter of Trayvon Martin earlier this month.

 

article-2382127-1B16372C000005DC-743_306x423

 

article-2382127-1B163738000005DC-636_306x423

 

Indeed, Zimmerman is even reported to have asked the officer if he knew his face from television and the officer again told the one-time Florida neighborhood watch captain that he did not.

 

While being questioned by the officer, Zimmerman, who was driving a 2008 Honda pick-up with Florida plates, told the officer that he was armed and was instructed to keep the gun in the car’s glove-compartment.

 

The officer issued Zimmerman a warning for speeding and then sent him on his way – but not before asking him where he was going, to which he replied ‘nowhere in particular’.

 

‘Nowhere in particular, why is that?’ responded the officer according to In Forney.com

 

‘You didn’t see my name?’ said Zimmerman. The officer then responded, ‘wow, what a coincidence.’

 

The officer then inquired if Zimmerman was free of any warrants for arrest, to which Zimmerman replied, ‘absolutely’.

 

‘Alright, I’m gonna go back and just check you, routinely,’ said the officer as he checked Zimmerman’s proof of insurance and a driver’s license.

 

‘The reason you were stopped was for your speed, why don’t you slow down a little bit for me and, as long as you don’t have any warrants, I’ll cut you loose with a warning,’ said the officer to Zimmerman according to In Forney.com.

 

‘Just take it easy, go ahead and shut your glove compartment and don’t play with your firearm, ok?’

 

The traffic stop according to InForney.Com lasted approximately five minutes and after being given a warning, Zimmerman was sent on his way – being wished ‘a safe trip’ by the officer.

 

In the aftermath of his acquittal Zimmerman’s lawyers said that he would almost certainly rearm himself and would be handed back the 9mm Kel-Tec pistol he used to kill Martin.

 

Federal investigators have not yet returned the weapon.

 

And even though the fact that Zimmerman is back carrying a weapon will certainly be viewed as controversial, Zimmerman is legally permitted to under Texas state law.

 

The gun in the glove box is legal in Texas, and police routinely ask motorists if they have weapons in the car, Brooks said. He said the entire stop lasted less than five minutes.

 

‘It wasn’t for super-excessive speeds, they just got him on regular speeding,’ said Brian Brooks, city manager of Forney, Texas, about 25 miles southeast of Dallas, where Zimmerman was stopped.

 

‘It’s a pretty routine stop except for the fact that it was George Zimmerman.’
