"Attorney General-designate Alberto Gonzales offered an equivocal answer this month when asked if U.S. personnel could engage in torture under certain circumstances."

"'I don't believe so, but I'd want to get back to you on that,' the White House counsel told Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., during a daylong confirmation hearing that focused on the Bush administration's interrogation policies for terrorism suspects and Iraqi prisoners." ...

"Offering his views in response to other questions submitted by committee members, Gonzales:" ...

"Said he and the administration favor renewal of the federal assault-weapons ban and background checks for gun show purchases. The administration was largely silent as Congress allowed the ban to expire last year." [emphasis added]

"Citing his brother Tony's work as a Houston SWAT officer, attorney general nominee Alberto Gonzales told the Senate in writing Tuesday that he supports extending the expired federal assault weapons ban."

"'I worry about his safety and the types of weapons he (Tony) will confront on the street,' Gonzales said. 'The president has made it clear that he stands ready to sign a reauthorization of the federal assault weapons ban if it is sent to him by Congress. I, of course, support the president on this issue.'"

"Anti-gun groups criticized President Bush during the campaign last year for failing to press for an extension of the ban."

"Gonzales also said he wants Congress to reauthorize the Patriot Act this year, despite complaints that it is too intrusive." ...

... "As we should realize, illegal use of firearms has little to do with legal possession of firearms. The Centre for Defence Studies in London, showed that criminal use of handguns increased by 40% in the two years immediately after their 1997 ban on handguns. It is now believed there are over 300,000 firearms in Britain, which are readily accessible to anyone with murder on their minds. When Anne Pearston, a leader in the anti-gun campaign was presented with these figures, she dismissed them with, 'But this completely misses the point of what we were trying to do. We never thought that there would be any effect on illegal gun crime, because this is a totally separate issue. What we were campaigning for was to make sure that a civilian could not be legally trained to use a handgun.' It makes one wonder." ...

"Guns. The number of privately owned guns in the U.S. is at an all-time high. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) estimates that there were about 215 million guns in 1999, when the number of new guns was averaging about 4.5 million (about 2%) annually. A report for the National Academy of Sciences put the 1999 figure at 258 million. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, there were 30.7 million approved (new and used) NICS firearm transactions between 2000 2003."

"Gun Owners. The number of gun owners is also at an all-time high. The U.S. population is at an all-time high (about 294 million), and rises about 1% annually. Numerous surveys over the last 40+ years have indicated that just under half of all households have at least one gun owner. ..." ...

"With the demise of the Clinton Gun Ban, and several independent studies for the federal government showing that the 'assault weapons' ban was ill-conceived, gun prohibitionists have found new firearms to demonize--those chambered to fire the vintage .50 BMG cartridge."

"A fear-mongering campaign to demonize both those firearms and the hobbyists who own them began in earnest. CBS's '60 Minutes' used its Jan. 9, 2005, edition to portray .50 caliber rifles as being 'too dangerous to be in the hands of private citizens.' ..."

"So what, the gun banners say, if these rifles aren't used in crimes--they might be one day. If that sounds familiar, it should. That's the same language U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) used to help Bill Clinton attack semi-automatics more than a decade ago." ...

"The law — one of four bills signed regulating gun sales and possession — goes further than any other city's effort to hold the gun industry financially responsible for crimes involving their weapons."

"'We need to do everything we can to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and out of the hands of children,' said Bloomberg. 'There's just no argument here. Guns kill people, it's time to get them off the street.'" ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Lane County Prosecutor Doug Harcleroad announced late today that James Winkelman will not face criminal charges in the death of Todd Alan Hughes.

Police say Winkelman shot Hughes to death on January 11, near 13th and Garfield. The statement from Harcleroad reads "...our analysis of the facts of this case leads us to believe that the shooting of Mr. Hughes, although tragic, was a justified act. The use of deadly physical force by Mr. Winkelman is justified as self-defense because Mr. Hughes was about to use unlawful deadly force against Mr. Winkelman at the time he was shot."

The grand jury heard two and a-half hours of testimony from ten witnesses before reaching its decision.

with threatening another student.

The 16-year-old was charged with making terroristic threats, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony, unlawful possession of a gun and unlawful possession of a gun on school property, according to court documents.

He is not being identified because the Journal Star typically does not print the names of juveniles charged with crimes.

Police arrested the boy Friday after a school resource officer allegedly found a loaded .38-caliber gun on him while he was in class.

A day before his arrest, another student had told police the boy had threatened him with a gun.

The boy, who lives in Lincoln, was suspended from the school following his arrest.

A Granite School District police officer has been charged with aggravated assault, a second-degree felony, for shooting a man with his service pistol last October.

Officer Richard Todd Rasmussen, 44, was chasing a man suspected of driving a stolen car Oct. 20. Anthony Chavez abandoned the car he was driving, jumped a fence and ran into the backyard of a house.

Rasmussen fired a shot, striking Chavez in the left thigh.

According to the Salt Lake County district attorney's office, Rasmussen was not threatened, and did not believe that Chavez was armed. He told investigators he fired at Chavez because he feared that the suspect would take his gun. He said Chavez lunged toward him when he fired the shot.

"Today's high-tech, high-priced crossbows barely resemble the medieval weapon from which they evolved. Fans of crossbow hunting believe the weapon offers the best of both rifle hunting and traditional bow hunting - the steadiness that comes from bracing a crossbow on the shoulder and using a sight, like a gun, combined with the silence and short range that makes bow hunting palatable in urban areas."

"But legislative proposals to legalize hunting with crossbows this year still are expected to be controversial."
