Brooklyn gunfight leaves four cops injured and suspect in critical condition
New York Post ^ | April 8, 2012 | DAN MacLEOD, SALLY GOLDENBERG and DOUG AUER

Posted on 04/08/2012 7:23:46 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Four members of the NYPD’s elite Emergency Service Unit were shot early today during a wild shootout with an ex-con barricaded inside his Brooklyn apartment, police said.

Detective Michael Keenan, 52, was struck in his left calf while Detective Kenneth Ayala, 49, was hit in the thigh and left ankle during a 12:30 a.m. firefight with Nakwon Foxworth, 33, inside the suspect’s apartment building at 3301 Nostrand Ave. in Sheepshead Bay, said NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

The mayor added: “All the shootings have a disgraceful fact in common: all were committed with illegal guns that came from out of state. And that is the case with nearly every shooting in our city.”
Translation: all our strict gun control laws don't do sh*t!

I don't know if “Nakwon” would fit that role and the open-minded, DIEverse and tolerant Ad Council spots teach us not to form opinions based on such matters.

Brooklyn resident Nakwon Foxworth, 33, got into an argument with a group of moving company employees, Kelly said, and threatened them with a gun.

Foxworth took his pregnant girlfriend — who was also carrying their 4-month-old son in her arms — back to their Nostrand Ave. apartment on the sixth floor.

One of the moving company employees called police, according to Kelly, and told a dispatcher, “He’s got a gun, he’s got a gun.”

Once they found his apartment, police looked through the peephole and saw that Foxworth was holding the girlfriend and infant at gunpoint.

A short while later, Kelly said, the woman busted through the apartment door and told police that she was being held hostage. She also said that Foxworth had a gun.

He had a dispute with his lady friend and told her she couldn’t leave. And when she just left and left the door open, he started shooting.”

Records show that Foxworth was incarcerated for 10 years for robbery and selling drugs in prison, and two years for attempted murder.

Hard to believe the bad guy got four of them.

Kelly went ballistic (!) about illegal guns - he’s going to look pretty stupid about that if it turns out at least some of the injuries were due to friendly fire.

Yep...and that is the gun-grabber's argument for nationalizing the gun laws. The state laws ain't enough, they say...

The left NEVER stops...they are relentless, just as we must remain.

From the article:

Carried by criminals with multiple convictions. It’s like the MAYOR is saying that if criminals only used legal weapons, then there would be no problem.

“Kelly went ballistic (!) about illegal guns”

Yep, it had nothing to do at all with a low life thug that has already spent nearly all of his adult life in prison for violent crimes.
Make sure to point out that “he had an arsenal”, “multiple purchases”, “assault weapon”, did we leave out any gun grabber talking points?
I would like to point out that it really is irrelevant what they found after the fact. There is no indication from the article that he used any of those weapons in his shooting spree, or that they knew that he was armed with those weapons before the shooting started.
If they did, they need to reevaluate their tactics.

Even if they confiscated every gun in America, which I don’t see happening ever, but even if they could do that, do they really expect us to believe that the traffic in ILLEGAL guns would cease?

I believe they are only concerned in disarming law-abiding citizens, so they would be less concerned with illegal gun sales.

From the article:
“Police confiscated three weapons and 50 rounds of ammunition from within Foxworth’s apartment, Kelly said. The guns included a 9 mm Browning handgun — which was used in the gun battle . . . Cops also found a loaded, defaced .22 caliber revolver and a sawed-off military assault rifle equipped with a scope.”

Foxworth's “weapons cache” was composed of a Browning Mk III 9mm Hi-Power pistol (14-shots), a High Standard Sentinel 9-shot .22 DA revolver, and a Ruger Mini-14 rifle with a pistol grip stock (butt stock removed), a barrel cutoff just ahead of the gas block, and a 20-round magazine. The Mini-14 is hardly a “military assault rifle” — but this is New York and the writers aren't very gun savvy.

Aside from the attempted murder charge, Mr. Foxworth also qualifies for: (1) a felon in possession of firearms (10 years, $10K fine); (2) possession of a firearm with defaced serial number (10 years, $10K fine); (3) possession of a sawed-off rifle (10 years, $10K fine). If the prosecutors do this right, Foxworth won't see the outside of prison bars until he's 80 years old.

Of course you are right. My question was stupid. It’s the second amendment they are taking aim at, not “criminals with guns”.

He will plea-bargain the lot down to misdemeanors and get time served or, at worse, six months probation.

This is NYC, but these three charges are federal charges that could be added on top of the state charges (attempted murder). Have the state give Foxworth 20 years for attempted murder and the feds give him 30 on the three federal charges. If everything is consecutive, that's how he gets to stay behind bars until past 80.

Because the Draconian gun laws keeps them from gaining first hand knowledge.

"He also had a sawed-off military style assault rifle equipped with a scope that had been stolen from Florida."

"The 9-mm Browning was part of a multiple gun purchase Foxworth made in Wilmington, North Carolina."

It is a Federal Offense for felons to possess a firearm. As cited by federalcriminallawyer.us:

The federal offense of possession of a firearm by a felon is defined by statute, Title 18, 
United States Code, Section 922(g)(1). The offense is a felony. The law provides the following:
    It shall be unlawful for any person-
   (1) who has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term 
    exceeding one year;
                                         ***
   to ship or transport in interstate or foreign commerce, or possess in or affecting commerce,  
   any firearm or ammunition; or to receive any firearm or ammunition which has been shipped or 
   transported in interstate or foreign commerce.
Federalcriminallawyer.us continues:
"Possession of a firearm by a felon is most often prosecuted in state court... But state charges give way to federal charges where the gun crossed state lines. Basically, if the federal government can establish that the gun was involved in some interstate activity, then it becomes a federal case. These cases are typically investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF)..."

But given the vital RACIAL information on Nakwon's Prison Record with NYS-DOC:

  Inmate Name:	  FOXWORTH, NAKWON  
  Sex:		  MALE  
  Date of Birth:  09/15/1978  
  Race/Ethnicity: BLACK          **(Holder's People / Obama Son Could-Have-Been)**
  Crime, Sentence, Incarcerated, Released:		
      ATT JO - MURDER 2ND, 1996, 2-6 yrs, 1998
      CRIM POSS WEAP 2ND, 1999, 10-11 yrs, 2009
It is obvious that Holder & Obama will see no "federal" role here. After all did not Derrick Bell's "Critical Race Theory" teach them that Blacks should not be held to the same (White) laws as Whites?
