PA: Philly can't fight the rural reality
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

THE STATE HOUSE'S three-day session on violent crime, held largely in answer to Philly's gun-homicide horrors, offers lessons and affirmations.

The main lesson is that the state's nature is rural. The main affirmation is that a rural state loves guns.
 

WA: Can America be weaned off love affair with guns?

There's no question that the gun culture -- stemming back to the frontier spirit of the 19th century and justified, at least by gun-ownership advocates, by the Second Amendment of the Constitution -- plays a major role in perpetuating the high numbers of violent deaths.

A war of words exploded into gunfire in the Westgate neighborhood near West Palm Beach early Sunday, leaving two young men dead and one injured and a man admitting to the shooting.

Authorities charged Norman Borden Jr., 44, with two counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of shooting into an occupied vehicle. He is being held without bail at the Palm Beach County Jail.

...

Floridians already had the right to protect themselves in their homes, but the new law means they don't have to retreat in any place they have a legal right to be.

The law, a top priority of the National Rifle Association, was meant to help potential victims fight off violent crime.

Jeff Hall is correct. There is no way to prevent the school shootings in Wisconsin, Colorado, Pennsylvania, or anywhere else from “ever happening again.” But there is a way to minimize tragedy in the future.

Maye maintains that he didn't know the raiding officers were police. He says he fired his gun in self-defense, and in defense of his daughter. The jury didn't believe him. In 2004, he was convicted of capital murder -- the intentional killing of an on-duty police officer -- and sentenced to deat

Jim Morin's Oct. 5 cartoon depicting the scene of a school shooting is utterly without taste or social value. It suggests that the Second Amendment is somehow responsible for the rash of shootings. Such a view is shortsighted in the extreme.
 

IN: House bill targets licensed gun dealers

Once again The Journal Gazette and former mayor Paul Helmke have taken advantage of federal legislation concerning guns to mislead the public and attempt to further their anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment agenda.

The editorial, “Bill aids illegal guns” (Oct. 1), failed to say House Bill 5092 would give the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or BATFE, more tools to punish federally licensed gun dealers who break firearms sale laws. Nor did it relate that the bill was favored by the Fraternal Order of Police or that heavy-handed and probably illegal acts by BATFE at a Richmond, Va., gun show were the primary reason for the bill’s passage.
 

Gun Control Works!

A recent editorial highlights the continued need to stand guard on our precious liberties:

"Like most Americans, I’ve become regrettably inured to the daily reports of gun violence and gun death in this country. Oh, I know, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” But this week’s attempted slaughter of 10 Amish schoolgirls (as of this writing, five had died) hit me in a place the National Rifle Association had not yet calloused over with the propaganda it so routinely blares through a well-financed bullhorn of a public relations machine.[1]"
 

NY: Guns would have saved children

Cartoonist Matt Davies blames the so-called "gun lobby" for the recent school shootings, but the blame better rests with the gun-control lobby. Israel and Thailand dealt with terrorism in schools by arming teachers and staffers, including nurses. Guns in schools there haven't "caused" shootings or accidents, as alarmists here imagine must happen whenever guns are nearby. Instead, they have prevented and stopped attacks, such as in May 2002, when an Israeli teacher shot a terrorist before he could harm anyone. Here we instead have the federal "Gun Free School Zones Act," which turned our schools into safe havens for attackers.

PHILADELPHIA -- A Philadelphia School District police officer assigned to protect students was instead under arrest Sunday for allegedly trying to abduct a teen in West Philadelphia.

Police arrested 52-year-old John Hinton, who was still wearing his uniform Sunday morning.

Spurill wants to know how school administrators didn't know about Hinton's alleged past. Sources say was charged with assault 30 years ago but was never convicted, and his record was expunged.

Between land-use regulations, building codes, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission, every cobblestone and corner of historic districts is under constant scrutiny. Perhaps, then, it was a sense of rebellion that led me to sign up for a hunting course at the Metropolitan Rod & Gun Club. Shooting -- well, learning hunting safety is what we were actually doing -- seemed the antithesis to the rest of Brooklyn's regulated society.

Corpus Christi police say a 14-year-old boy today shot and killed a man who broke into his family's home and threatened him and his mother. Police Chief Bryan Smith says the man confronted a woman as she was carrying groceries into her home. The man forced her inside and tied her and her son up. Smith said the woman was able to loosen the binding and free her son, who got his father's revolver. The suspect tried to break into the room where the two were and threatened to kill them both -- then the teen fired a shot through the door. The intruder was shot in the head.

A SWORD-MAKER who creates weapons for Braveheart-style battle re-enactments is to take up the fight against tough new restrictions on the sale of swords.

Paul Macdonald, who owns Macdonald Armouries on Brunswick Street Lane, presented a petition of more than 2000 signatures to the Scottish Parliament last year.

The sword-maker is angry that he will face tough new restrictions on the sale of swords under a Bill, introduced last week and expected to receive parliamentary approval early next year.

When Yonkers Mayor Philip Amicone gets a call from his police commissioner late at night, he says, he can guess what it's about. Shots have been fired. Someone's been hit. Sometimes, someone's been killed. "We have people being shot with illegal guns," he said. "Children being shot; children shooting children with illegal guns. We've got to get the illegal guns off the streets."

A 13-year-old student wearing a mask and a long, black trenchcoat fired an AK-47 into the ceiling at his school Monday morning after confronting a pair of students and administrators, telling them "please don't make me do this," officials said. He then fired the shot into the ceiling, breaking a water pipe.

No one was injured, and the boy, who police said was following a well-thought out plan, was taken into custody.

Principal Steve Gilbreth and Assistant Superintendent Steve Doerr persuaded the youth to leave the building, and he was confronted by two police officers who had their weapons drawn. The student dropped the rifle and was taken into custody.

A northwestern Pennsylvania woman used her 4-week-old baby as a weapon during a domestic dispute, seriously injuring the infant by swinging him through the air to strike her boyfriend, Erie police said.

Chytoria Graham, 27, of Erie, remained in the Erie County Jail on Monday, unable to post $75,000 bond on charges of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and simple assault.

"Never, never, never - I can never remember anything like this," District Attorney Bradley Foulk said Sunday.

Mr. Bloomberg pointed out that 69 percent of the people killed by guns in New York last year were black, even though black people make up 27 percent of the city's population.
