A suspect in an attempted home-invasion robbery in Concord on Dec. 23 was apparently hit on the head and strangled by two brothers as they tried to save their sister and defend themselves, officials reported.

Sean Nelson, a 22-year-old Concord resident, died from blunt force head injuries and asphyxia due to strangulation, according to the Contra Costa County coroner's office.

Nelson reportedly entered a home in the 1400 block of Del Rio Circle, stole several items and then fatally shot 17-year-old Ana Christina Gonzalez in her living room, Concord police reported.

Gun control is expected to become a hot topic for the US presidential election as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on a controversial handgun ban in the nation's capital.

For the last 31 years Washington DC has prohibited ownership of handguns in an attempt to curb high levels of violent crime.

But security guard Richard Heller has challenged the law, claiming that it denied residents the right to defend themselves
 

DC: Killings In D.C. Up After Long Dip

But the overall number of homicides in the region remained steady from 2006, as increases in the District and Prince George's were offset by a substantial decline in Northern Virginia.

The increase in gun violence in the District comes as the city is waging a U.S. Supreme Court fight to preserve its 30-year-old gun law, one of the strictest in the nation. Critics have said the law violates Second Amendment rights and has been proved ineffective, as evidenced by the large number of guns that wind up on city streets. D.C. officials argue that matters would be even worse without the law.

Ed.: DC continues to lead the way in victim disarmament.

“The conservatives in this state need to know that I [Mike Huckabee] am a real conservative. I’m pro-life and not just because I’m running for president. I respect the Second Amendment; I think our taxes ought to be lower and not higher. I think we need to honor and protect the traditional marriage between a man and a woman. These are bedrock conservative principles and these are my principles,” he said. “It’s clear that the system is broken, and we need to quit assessing the blame horizontally, left or right, Democrat or Republican. The people in this country are looking for genuine, vertical leadership.”

Mr. Riedner claims that Sen. Dick Durbin recently announced a new gun law, but a search of the Library of Congress Web site shows that the senator has not introduced any new gun-related legislation this year.

Perhaps Mr. Riedner was referring to the Nov. 27 Daily Herald article, "Gun control not a partisan issue for some lawmakers."

This article noted that Sen. Durbin was awarded the 2007 Abraham Lincoln Award from the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence. It also mentioned a proposal by Congressman Mark Kirk to close loopholes that shield people when they provide guns to gang members and criminals.
 

UK: Boys' learning 'helped by toy guns'

Boys' learning is aided by playing with toy weapons and should not be discouraged at nursery schools, the government has claimed.

In new guidance on the issue of boys' education, the government has claimed that development in boys is improved when they are allowed to play and act out their games.

...

'[Stopping play] is not necessary as long as practitioners help the boys to understand and respect the rights of other children and to take responsibility for the resources and environment,' the report says.

At Pete's Gun & Tackle, Republican candidates like Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo, who recently withdrew from the race, have tried to win over Goyette's predominately right-wing clientele.

"Most of my customers are gun-owners, so they're interested in candidates who will protect the Second Amendment," said Goyette, a state representative.

For decades, Martha's Exchange Restaurant & Brewing Co. in downtown Nashua has been a must-stop for presidential hopefuls on the New Hampshire primary campaign trail.

She said she and her husband called police three days in a row prior to the shooting because complete vehicles were stolen from the property while they were not at home.

"The man (Rodney Shamlin) had stolen 10 cars," Southworth said. "Every day, someone was stealing, coming in from the back."

Southworth said Rodney Shamlin never said anything about a purchase, but simply lunged at her husband, who then shot him to save himself.

Southworth said her husband had a heart attack that day and had breathing problems on Sunday when Quannell X and the others were in front of their property.

"The man's going to kill my husband one way or another, I guess," she said.

Gun control is an emotional issue on which strong feelings are held both by those in favor of and those against more laws to restrict ownership of firearms. But on one aspect of the question, there is solidarity: Some people simply should not be permitted to purchase firearms.

Seung Hui Cho was one of them. The disturbed Virginia Tech student was able to buy guns with little or no trouble last year. He used them to slaughter 32 people and wound 26 others before killing himself on the Virginia Tech campus last year.

Police in Columbia have seen several recent instances where would-be crime victims have fought back, including one case where the suspect was fatally shot.

Police said Henry Brown was shot Thursday while trying to break into an apartment. Brown later died.

Authorities said the shooter, 18-year-old Alvin Canton, acted in a manner of self-defense that is protected by Missouri's "castle doctrine." That law allows homeowners to use deadly force against unlawful intruders. It took effect earlier this year.
 

UK: Boys and their toys

Nowhere is this law of unintended consequences more evident than in the controversy surrounding the question of toy guns. Play involving toy guns has many of the cues that boys naturally find more interesting than girls. When teachers stop them playing with guns, therefore, they are implicitly sending boys the message that their natural curiosity is wrong. The result is not that boys switch to a different (feminine) kind of curiosity. Rather, the result is that they switch off.

Two controversial shooting cases in Putnam County this year continue to wend their way through the criminal justice system. "I anticipate it being presented to a grand jury sometime in January or February," said Anthony J. DiFiore, who is representing one of the shooters, Peter Guerriero of Putnam Lake. Guerriero fatally shot David Shachnow outside Guerriero's home Oct. 22. Shachnow was apparently trying to get into the house where Guerriero lived with his girlfriend and their five children. Guerriero said he fired in self-defense but was charged with manslaughter and criminal use of a firearm. State police said they arrested him because he shot Shachnow outside his home. But DiFiore said his client was protecting his family.

"...(5) The trial court rightly, refused at the defendant's request, to give the jury any instructions defining principal and accessory, or to submit to the jury to determine whether certain other persons were accomplices, as there were no facts in the case to justify it, and the defendant himself testified that he had acted in self-defense...."

"...if all of that was true, as the defendant states, whether he was under the necessity of immediately shooting and killing the said Hurlin in order to protect his own life, or if, as the situation then appeared to him, such necessity of immediately shooting Hurlin in order to save his own life existed..."

"...The Ku Klux Act grew out of a message sent to Congress by President Grant*[2] on March 23, 1871... :

"...Therefore, I urgently recommend such legislation as in the judgment of Congress shall effectually secure life, liberty, and property, and the enforcement of law in all parts of the United States. . . . [Footnote 7]"

"...to protect persons in the rights which were guarantied to them by the Constitution and laws of the United States..."

I don't know what kind of gutless coward steps out of a car and opens fire on defenseless teenagers, but one thing I do know is that no gun law is going to stop him. The only way to deal with these gang criminals is to find, prosecute and execute them as soon as possible.

Ron McKinney has long regretted getting rid of an old pair of handcuffs his brother found behind a house in Jeffersonville, Ind., but he helped ease that loss yesterday when he bought a pair of handcuffs said to come from Alcatraz and a set of chains from San Quentin State Prison in California. McKinney, who lives in Salem, Ind., was among thousands of people yesterday who attended the R.K. Gun & Knife Show, also known as the Kenny Woods Gun & Knife Show. The event wrapped up its three-day run yesterday at the Kentucky Exposition Center.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
