"As fewer fathers take youngsters out into the woods and more suburbanites balk at a sport they see as both dangerous and cruel, some observers predict the number of hunters in the United States could fall by as much as 50 percent in the next 20 years."

"For a number of states, that's becoming a concern. Hunters keep deer populations in check and revenue from hunting licenses are key to conservation revenues. Others lament the loss of a father-son ritual that they consider as much a part of American life as the family farm."

"Police in Los Angeles have settled on a new way of handling those pesky burglar alarms that take up so much of their time. They will now ignore them -- unless someone can prove that there is a genuine emergency."

"The change was approved by the Los Angeles police commissioners at the request of chief William Bratton, who said that 92 percent of the alarms are false -- wasting time and money in a city struggling with gang violence, a spike in violent crime and a shortage of officers."

-------
So while the state is making it infinitely more difficult for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves with firearms and forcing them to rely more on the police, the police are announcing a stated policy of ignoring those who need them.

"The solution depends on who shouts the loudest and longest when it comes to anything that hints of a move to alter a citizen's right to bear arms. And the NRA is a powerful lobby."

"This apparently is the accepted price to be paid for not being able to reasonably discuss anything that has to do with guns in this country."

Read what Brits have to say about the problem.

"One obvious solution is to make them illegal. If that doesn't work then, er, make them more illegal. Oops, sorry, I forgot, the government tried that and it didn't work. How about banning people from wearing clothes, so they can't hide a gun if they have it?"

"Your Jan. 7 editorial 'Gun Safety: Tragedy will repeat without more locks, leadership' suggested that more gun locks would prevent accidental shooting deaths. Every year, scores of children die from ingesting ordinary household products such as bleach, cleansers and over-the-counter medicines. Should the government mandate locks on cabinets where cleansers and medicines are stored?"

"When the president was governor of Texas, as I understand it, he signed a bill allowing anyone age 21 or over with no crime or mental health problem a permit to carry a concealed weapon. And my question is, since this meant that this weapon could be legally used to stop a crime, which all good citizens are supposed to resist and report, how can the president oppose militia groups who stopped the crime of illegal immigration, which goes on by the millions, including those who bring in drugs?"

"But there's a reason you won't see anyone investigating ATF: Its failings are the direct result of actions by the Republican politicians who now control both houses of Congress. At the behest of the National Rifle Association (NRA), GOP lawmakers (and some conservative Democrats) have saddled the bureau with so many legal restrictions that it has little practical power to deter sellers from allowing weapons to flow to criminals. ATF could have cracked down harder on Bull's Eye, but its lack of aggressiveness was precisely what GOP lawmakers had intended. Pro-gun-control Democrats could have made an issue last fall of how Muhammad obtained a sniper rifle, but they remained silent in the face of feared retribution at the polls by the NRA. Now, as the minority party, Democrats have little power to investigate anything, even if they wanted to."

" 'Let me tell you as a cop, I’m not gonna be there,' Mark Granko told his students, who sat transfixed, listening to war stories from his 25 years as a police officer, including five on a SWAT team. 'I don’t care if you call 911. By the time we get there, it’s over.' "

"That’s why the 15 men had trekked to the seedy Oakland suburb for the weekend. We were there for one purpose alone: to learn how to kill an attacker instead of allowing him to kill us while we wait for the police to arrive."
