Blake Abbey says he was walking home from a bar with two friends on Sunday when a knife-wielding man jumped out, yelled homophobic slurs and stabbed all three of them.

“[He] called us ‘faggots for wearing tight jeans,'” Abbey wrote on his Facebook page, after the attack in Sacramento, California. “We did nothing to provoke him. We were in the wrong place at the wrong time. My arm was completely mangled by a 7-8 inch Rambo knife.”

Their alleged assailant, 25-year-old Timothy Brownell, was arrested Monday on assault and weapons charges and released on bail. Police issued a new warrant for his arrest after they reclassified the stabbings as a hate crime, and Brownell turned himself in on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Guns in America: For every criminal killed in self-defense, 34 innocent people die

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.” says Wayne LaPierre, the vice president of the National Rifle Association.

That’s become the kernel of the NRA’s response to recent mass shooting tragedies — if only more people carried guns for protection, the thinking goes, then they would be less likely to be victimized by gun-wielding criminals.

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun,” LaPierre said

The challenge to that argument is that, data show, guns are rarely used in self-defense — especially relative to the rate at which they’re used in criminal homicides or suicides.

Gun Control Measures Dormant In Congress After Charleston Shooting

This week’s slaughter of nine people in a South Carolina church left prospects that Congress will curb guns right where they’ve been for years — remote for now, according to lawmakers and activists on both sides of the issue.

Conceding that congressional action was unlikely soon, President Barack Obama said lawmakers will tighten federal firearms restrictions when they believe the public is demanding it.

“I am not resigned,” Obama told the U.S. Conference of Mayors in San Francisco on Friday. “I have faith we will eventually do the right thing.”

Charleston Mourns The Dead At Emanuel AME: ‘I Knew Every Single One Of Them’

Andre McPherson has been coming to the Emanuel AME Church here off and on since 2003. His visit on Thursday night was his first in a couple of years, he said with a hint of guilt, but he felt he owed it to the church leaders and congregation to stop by.

In his more trying days when he was homeless, McPherson said, he often found himself at the doorstep of what’s known as “Mother Emanuel.” The Charleston resident credits the historic African-American church with helping him get off of drugs.

“This church helped me get me life together,” McPherson, 44, said through tears. “It helped me go back to my kids. It helped me get away from a certain street mentality. It helped me have pride.”

Dylann Roof Was Planning Charleston Shooting ‘For Six Months,’ Roommate Says

 Dylann Roof’s roommate says the suspect was planning something big leading up to the alleged shooting at a South Carolina church Wednesday that left nine people dead.

Dalton Tyler told ABC News that he’d known Roof for at least seven months, and that the 21-year-old was “planning something like that for six months.”

ABC reports:

“He was big into segregation and other stuff,” Tyler said. “He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.”

Tyler said he met Roof, a Lexington, South Carolina native, through a good friend. He also said Roof’s parents, with whom he said the suspect was “on and off,” had previously bought him a gun but never allowed him to take it with him until this past week.

Nine people were shot to death by a white man at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday night — rocking a nation already grappling with institutional racism and race-related violence.

The gunman entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church during a weekly Bible study meeting and opened fire around 9 p.m. Eight people were found dead at the scene, police said. Two others were transported to a hospital, where one later died.

The suspect, named as 21-year-old Dylann Roof, was captured Thursday morning in Shelby, North Carolina, according to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. According to Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen, Roof was arrested during a traffic stop.

Judge Backs Charges Against Cleveland Officers in Killing of Tamir Rice

Acting under a rarely used provision of Ohio state law, a judge found probable cause Thursday to charge Cleveland police Officer Timothy Loehmann with murder in the fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice last year.

Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Ronald Adrine also found cause to support negligent homicide charges against Officer Frank Garmback, Loehmann’s partner, who is accused of standing by after Loehmann shot Tamir in November at a recreation center, where Tamir was playing with a pellet gun.

Adrine agreed with local activists known as the “Cleveland 8″ who took the unusual step of independently seeking charges because, they said, they’d lost confidence in the grand jury investigation.
