"Neal Knox, former vice president of the National Rifle Association and long-time leader of the gun rights movement, died at his home on January 17, 2005 following a year-long battle with colon cancer. He was sixty-nine. He is survived by his wife, Jay Janen Knox (Shirley) and his four children; Christopher, Shan, Jeffrey, Stacey, and seven grandchildren." ...

"Neals interest in guns eventually led to his becoming the founding editor of Gun Week newspaper, followed by the editorship of Handloader magazine and the creation of Rifle magazine. From 1978 to 1982, he served as Executive Director of the Institute for Legislative Action, the lobbying arm of the National Rifle Association."

Since 1984, as chairman of the Firearms Coalition, Neal has dedicated himself to writing, speaking and lobbying for the development and support of grassroots gun rights organizations." ...

"What is this thing we Americans call liberty? What does it truly mean to possess personal liberty? In this nation, founded upon the ideal of liberty, do most of us even really have a firm grasp on what liberty is?" ...

"Likewise, Liberals are clearly anti-liberty where the rights of Americans to own guns are concerned. There is no doubt, where they stand on gun rights. They stand with the Marxists who do not think human beings worthy of self-determination or of freedom. However, how much better are some Conservatives? Yes, for the most part they are many times friendlier to the Constitution. Yet some of them have stood for restrictions, which would appall the Founders. The Second Amendment is crystal clear on this issue. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed." ...

... "It all started in La Grange, Kentucky when local residents ganged up on Second Amendment activist and real estate developer, Barry Laws. Laws, a resident of Los Angeles County, wants to restore an abandoned building into an indoor shooting and paintball range."

"Nearby residents have, oddly enough, taken a position you might expect from a city like Los Angeles where the U.S. Constitution is regularly denigrated. Anti-gunners in La Grange claim that the range's proximity to a nearby apartment complex and bus stop jeopardizes the safety of the children. They have taken steps to prevent the range from opening and have alerted local media. And, if we know anti-gunners, the organizing, protesting, and whining won't stop until they have successfully stomped the life out of the Second Amendment." ...

"When the deer season winds down, the hunting rigs head home in a routine as predictable as swallows at Capistrano."

"But their owners shouldn't let those high hunting seats, brush guards, feeders, Jeeps, trucks, SUVs and ATVs just sit."

"Spraying mud and gunk off my 1978 CJ7, I noticed a crack on the frame below a front shock-absorber mount. A close look at the Jeep's belly revealed shredded bushings on the rear springs as well as enough cactus, twigs and rocks on the transmission skid plate for a small campfire, complete with the fire ring." ...

"The point is, now that the hunting rig is home, the hunter needs to treat it like a rifle and give it a good cleaning and inspection, at least before summer is over." ...

"The biggest, should state law require all guns to have locks?"

"The death of 4-year-old Kendaria Hall is a reminder accidents involving guns do happen."

"As Volunteer TVs Lee Merrit reports, while some state legislators believe new law could help prevent these tragedies, others say it's not their decision to make."

"'Certainly Id vote for it,' says State Representative Joe Armstrong, (D) Knoxville." ...

"'Were not trying to take guns away, we're trying to make them safe where kids can't get a hold of them,' explains Representative Armstrong." ...

"Hundreds of people file into the Capitol every day to visit their state legislators. Some bring paperwork. Some bring cupcakes. Some bring guns."

"In the past, rules about firearms in the Capitol and adjoining legislative office building were virtually non-existent. People with concealed weapons were required to show their permits, but those who openly carried pistols walked past Capitol Police officers, no questions asked."

"This year, new rules ban any public display of firearms, effectively barring anyone who has not been approved for a concealed weapon permit. The restrictions have angered gun-rights groups and even some lawmakers, who are trying to rescind the regulations." ...

... " Until March, anyone could carry firearms openly into the legislators' office building and the Capitol nearby. Then a joint committee of delegates and senators passed a rule requiring residents to hold a concealed gun permit to bring in a firearm, even if they plan to carry it openly."

"Soon, people without permits will be able to check their guns at the door, relinquishing them to a locker the Capitol Police have ordered, said Maj. Michael A. Jones, a police spokesman. Until it arrives, they will be turned away."

"'You don't have to ask the government for permission to carry a gun,' said Philip Van Cleave, president of the [Virginia Citizens Defense] league. 'Once you start whittling away at the right, when do you stop?'" ...

"The Shelby County Sheriff's Department has bought 100 semiautomatic rifles and is issuing them to its personnel."

"The AR-15 rifles will be provided to all patrol deputies as well as investigators and administrators who go out on emergency calls, Sheriff Chris Curry said."

"The purchase coincides with the Alabama State Troopers' and Birmingham Police Department's acquisition of the same type of weapons, but Shelby County isn't following their lead."

"'This process was started about a year and a half ago,' Curry said. 'I felt like it was a need we had to address.'"

"The sheriff said the rifles will give his deputies the same kind of firepower they have been encountering for some time." ...

"The 62-acre San Gabriel Valley Gun Club dates to 1946 and attracts thousands of visitors annually, including hunters, law enforcement officers and skeet and trap shooters."

"Gun advocates voiced opposition to the proposed City Council action at a Dec. 20 meeting. The council, confronting a packed auditorium of speakers on both sides and a lawsuit threat if the club closes, delayed the vote." ...

"The Marine who shot and killed one Ceres police officer and wounded another one was a gang member who was high on cocaine at the time of the shootings, police said."

"Investigators now are discounting the theory that Lance Cpl. Andres Raya, 19, may have been suffering from post-traumatic stress and instigated a "suicide by cop," provoking officers to shoot him because he did not want to return to Iraq."

"'During our investigation, we found he wasn't due to go back to Iraq, never faced combat situations and never even fired his gun,' Stanislaus County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Woodman said Saturday." ...

"Officer Richard Young was charged with murder Saturday after shooting a man." ...

"Officer Young is now partially blaming his wife for the shooting. Young says his wife, from whom he is separated, unexpectedly showed up at his house Friday. She came along with Curtis Anderton and Anderton's wife. Young says his wife and Anderton beat him up. His bruises and broken arm seen here support that claim."

"The shooting? Young calls it an act of self-defense. His wife Christine tells a different story. According to her, Richard told her and Curtis that night he was having an affair with Curtis' wife. A fight broke out and Christine claims Richard went off the deep end. According to her, Richard grabbed his patrol gun and shot Curtis because Curtis was upset about the alleged affair." ...

"IT took five hours of haggling yesterday for the prosecution and the defence to agree on the 12 jurors who will adjudicate in the Braeton murder case."

"And in the end they were told that the Crown will prove that the seven youth killed by the police in the Portmore community more than three years had surrendered to the cops before being cold-bloodedly cut down in a hail of bullets."

"'The Crown is alleging that at the material time when the men met their deaths, the police officers who killed them were not acting in self-defence because the men in the pathway would have been disarmed of the guns they had,' the lead prosecution attorney, Paula Llewellyn, told the court." ...

"The news came as no surprise to Rodriguez, who shared his ordeal with The Sun even though he was advised by a Mexican human rights group to maintain a low profile out of concern those connected to the accused policemen might seek revenge."

"'This is the way Mexico is, this is the way they do things down there,' Rodriguez said, his right arm in a sling, a portion of his right elbow missing and patched together with wires and pins by Mexican doctors." ...

The three escapees are Lindani Nkwanyana, 30, Busa Mthethwa, 25, and Thokozani Buthelezi, whose age is not known.

At the time of going to print, police were still combing the area for the suspects - who escaped with two shotguns and two 9mm pistols.
