PHILADELPHIA POLICE-THANKSGIVING

PHILADELPHIA — Police officers often come across families or people they wish they could do more to help on their beats. They started a program where officers are asked to donate as little as $4 to buy food to pack 450 boxes of Thanksgiving meals to help some of those families, seniors or others. During the year officers keep track if they notice a situation or home that would benefit from the help. They raised $13,000 this year from officers. By Claudia Lauer.

GUN CONTROL-NEW JERSEY

PHILADELPHIA — Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have filed friend-of-the-court briefs to support New Jersey’s latest gun control effort in a case set for federal appeals court arguments on Tuesday. They call the state’s effort to limit large-capacity magazines (“LCMs”) that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition a “reasonable” approach that still protects individual Second Amendment rights, but a gun rights group is challenging the plan.
