"Anyone who uses a gun - from a sharpshooter with elite armed forces or a weekend firing range hobbyist - knows that training with live ammunition is the best way to improve and maintain accuracy. However, they also know there are also considerable costs and risks involved."

"Although it is universally acknowledged that there is no substitute for live-fire exercises, military units do not train with live ammunition as often as they should or would like to. In both the military and in civilian life, the high cost of bullets for training can be prohibitive. In addition, firing live bullets introduces a stress element into training that can lead to tragic accidents." ...

"I find it very ironic the liberal side of our country is now claiming we shouldn't let fear ruin, limit or destroy our freedoms."

"The claim is that in our rush to feel safe, we shouldn't tolerate the infringement of our rights -- in this case, all the personal freedom and privacy issues brought about by Bush's taps, etc."

"Of course, the liberal side has for decades used that same fear argument and isolated cases as evidence to claim we need firearms bans in this country, regardless of the Second Amendment's recognition and protection (not granting) of that right, and that less than 0.1 percent of all firearms are used in crimes." ...

"The violent death of Leah Gustafson has many Superior residents feeling uneasy about personal safety."

"Gustafson was stabbed to death in her home by her own sword Jan. 7 after the suspect was allowed into her apartment building. Jason Borelli has been arrested and charged with first-degree intentional homicide in connection with the murder."

"Self-defense experts say it appears Gustafson attempted to fight off her attacker, and she used her cell phone to call 911 -- two things that should be done when attacked."

"'It looks as if she fought like a mad dog, and I guess she got overwhelmed,' said Charlie Law, chief deputy of the Douglas County Sheriff's Department and a teacher for rape defense. 'She did the right things.'" [emphasis added] ...

"'That's what we need, more of that going on,' said Fritzinger, manager of the Firing Line gun range ..."

"With armed robberies and other violent crimes unfolding in Allentown and elsewhere in the Lehigh Valley at a dizzying pace these days, Fritzinger may get his wish. Indeed, the Bethlehem clerk who clobbered a would-be robber with a baseball bat the other day may turn out to be at the forefront of a trend: fed-up residents and business owners fighting back ..." ...

"... a bill to clarify the 'make my day' law. In this country, we believe that a person is innocent until proven guilty and that people have the right to protect themselves in their own home. But as it now stands, that is not the case under the Colorado 'make my day' law. Currently, people must prove that they are in fear of their life and that they are not guilty of murder in order to claim this form of self-defense. Rep. Gardner's bill would switch the presumption, ensuring that a person truly is innocent until proven guilty." ...

"House Bill 882, which passed by a resounding 104-12 vote after about an hour of debate, changes the language in state law so that a citizen who uses deadly force under specific circumstances is presumed to have acted reasonably."

All of DeSoto County's representatives voted for the bill, which now moves to the Senate where a similar bill has been introduced with 30 co-signers, suggesting broad support. Senate Bill 2426 is expected to be taken up in that chamber next week." ...

"It will be interesting to see whether Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire mayor of New York City, can shake the National Rifle Association's grip on national gun control debate."

"Mayor Bloomberg is justifiably angry over the pathetically lax gun laws in states like Virginia, which are the source of a high percentage of the handguns that are used to commit crimes in the Big Apple. New York, like Massachusetts, has among the nation's strongest gun laws, but they are victimized by those states with the weakest laws — including several in the South and, according to Boston police officials, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont."

"'We have absolutely no idea where the guns are,' said one Long Beach officer familiar with the investigation who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"A grand jury cleared May of any wrongdoing, but the city paid $250,000 to Nelson's family to drop the lawsuit." ...
