The mother of a 14-year-old boy accused of planning an armed attack on a suburban Philadelphia high school was arrested Friday on charges that she had given him three firearms.
The deputy chief of the Plymouth Township Police Department, Joseph Lawrence, said the 46-year-old woman, Michele Cossey, had bought her son a 9-millimeter rifle, a .22-caliber rifle and a .22-caliber handgun. She was charged with providing a firearm to a minor, contributing to the corruption of a minor, unlawful transfer of a firearm and reckless endangerment, and was freed on bail.

T.I. was to make his initial court appearance Monday following his weekend arrest on weapons charges. The Grammy-winning rapper was arrested - just hours before he was to perform at the BET Hip-Hop Awards - in a parking lot where federal officials said he planned to pick up machine guns and silencers his bodyguard bought for him. T.I., born Clifford Harris, was charged Saturday with possession of unregistered machine guns and silencers, as well as possession of firearms by a convicted felon. Harris was in federal custody, said U.S. attorney's office spokesman Patrick Crosby, who would not disclose his location.

On October 20 at noon, members of the Richmond, Virginia, chapter of Million Mom March will protest at the gun show to be held at The Showplace on Mechanicsville Turnpike in Richmond. Members will dress in black and lie down in front of the Showplace for three minutes. The number three is significant because one child or teen is killed by a firearm every three hours and every three days America loses the equivalent of a classroom of children as a result of gun violence.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed the Crime Gun Identification Act over the weekend, and that means gun sellers by 2010 - if there are any left in the state by that time -- will have to use "microstamping" technology on every semiautomatic pistol they sell.

The 96-year-old company will also bring pieces of history, since its Henry rifles were used by Union soldiers in the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln was given a Henry rifle engraved with his name on it.

"...It is a maxim that all party spirit produces the incapacity to receive natural impressions from facts; and our recent political history has abundantly borne out the maxim..."

"...In these calamities under which they suffer, and the worse which threaten them, the people of Kansas ask for bread, clothes, arms and men, to save them alive, and enable them to stand against these enemies..."

"...Every man stood on his own feet, was his own governor; and there was no breach of peace . . . Every man throughout the country was armed with knife and revolver, and it was known that instant justice would be administered to each offence, and perfect peace reigned..."

When Kevin Storsberg heard noise in his garage in March 2006, he wasn't expecting to find the rear window of his blue Ford Taurus shattered, with a gaping hole in the middle. He wasn't expecting to find a bullet in the back seat, but he did. Storsberg lives on Powell Road, about 3/4ths of a mile south of the Trenton Fish and Game Club's rifle range. The club immediately closed the range after the incident.

The recent accidental shooting of a 5-year-old Afton boy is a reminder of the importance of firearms safety. According to state police in Sidney, the boy's father, Earnest J. Wurtz, was checking the condition of his .22-caliber rifle when it was accidentally discharged. As hunting season draws near (deer season will open Oct. 20 in the northern region of New York state) this incident serves as a timely reminder for gun owners to store and handle firearms safely.

When authorities thwarted 14-year-old Dillon Cossey’s planned massacre at Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School, the community of Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania—a forgettable Philadelphia suburb best known for its mall—shivered in terror upon realizing its own mortality. The disturbing near-disaster thrust a community who prides itself on proximity into active participation in a distant world that previously only existed through their television. School shootings happen in rural schools filled with buck-hunting evangelists who think psychological issues are for the weak and the sinful, or in city schools filled with the drugged-out, 50 Cent-obsessed descendents of poor rapists and murders, but not in Plymouth Meeting.

Mayor Bloomberg has said New Yorkers must face the fact that they're being watched by security cameras all the time.

He isn't kidding.

"Hidden cameras enhance people's safety," said Brian Cury, founder of EarthCam. "It's a way to share information and make people's lives better."

During Bloomberg's recent trip to London, where the mayor scoped out the city's massive surveillance-camera system known as the "Ring of Steel," Hizzoner said, "In this day and age, if you think that cameras aren't watching you all the time, you are very naive."

WI: Wis. Official Tells Public Not to Talk to Reporters After Crandon Shooting Rampage

MADISON, Wis. — The state's top law enforcement official is drawing criticism for encouraging the public not to answer reporters' questions about a north woods shooting by an off-duty sheriff's deputy that left seven dead, including the gunman.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen last week said law enforcers would not answer questions, and he relayed a request that Crandon residents ignore reporters asking questions.

A week after the shooting, authorities have released little or no information .

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said in an editorial Thursday that among the questions left unanswered is whether there was a problem with the police response, and whether psychological screening is needed for police recruits.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Police say a crazed attacker broke into a man's home in Uniondale New York, beat him with a karaoke machine and bit off his ear.

Nassau County police officer Mary Verna says doctors were unable to reattach the victim's ear, but that his injuries are not considered life -threatening.

Police say the 64-year-old man tried to defend himself with a vacuum cleaner hose as he was punched and kicked in the head and face, beaten with the karaoke machine, and bitten.

Police say the 27-year-old attacker chose his victim at random and was found crouching in the hallway of the home when they arrived Thursday.

Luis Hidalgo, also of Uniondale, has pleaded not guilty to charges of burglary and assault.

California police got some welcome news this weekend. On Saturday, October 13, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger sided with over 65 police chiefs, sheriffs and police organizations - representing cities and towns across the state of California - and signed the Crime Gun Identification Act of 2007 into law. This bill requires that, by 2010, all semi-automatic handguns sold in the state of California be fitted with a technology to help police officers solve gun crimes faster - even when the gun is unavailable.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been believed...to be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. — Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
