Widow Lobbies For Bullet Ban

(AP)–A Racine woman whose husband was killed while delivering food wants to pursue a ban on the hollow-point bullets that police say contributed to his death. The Journal Times reports that James Norris was gunned down in March 2016 while delivering food in Racine. Twenty-eight-year-old Alex Adams is charged with first-degree intentional homicide and armed robbery in the incident. Authorities say a surveillance video from a Wal-Mart in Mount Pleasant shows Adams buying the hollow-point ammunition used in the crime. Norris’ widow, Stacy Blevins, says she wants Wal-Mart to stop selling the ammunition or do background checks for buyers. Charles Crowson, a spokesman for the Arkansas-based retailer, says hollow-point bullets will continue to be sold and that the ammunition is legal.
