Hampton's wife Debra pulled the trigger, according to deputies who continued on Monday to try to figure out if the shooting was in self-defense.

"It's definitely domestic related, and one of the angles that we're looking at is the self-defense issue," said Clay County Sheriff's Office Detective Dan Mahla.

After the Oct. 1 shooting in Colorado, Rep. Frank Lasee (R-Wis.) announced he would attempt to work against a federal law banning guns on school grounds in order to introduce legislation allowing school personnel to carry weapons in schools. As part of the legislation, Lasee said he would require teachers to undergo training in the use of firearms.

An Osage County man is cleared in a shooting that left one person dead and another injured. He had maintained all along the shooting was self-defense. News on 6 anchor Craig Day re-visits the case and talks with the shooter about the jury's decision.

Wallace Roberts says there is no doubt, he's thankful a jury cleared him of serious charges. Two years ago, Roberts went into his home in Pawhuska and found several people inside. He says one of them had a gun. “I don't know if you've ever had a gun pulled in your face, but a .45 caliber is pretty big. It's my first and I hope it is my last."
 

MN: Don't blame guns for school shootings

Guns are not evil; people are. Guns don't point themselves at anyone; people point them and pull the trigger. Stop thinking of it as "gun violence," think of it as violence! That is what we need to address in this country.

Each of us has a God-given right to self-defense, and a constitutional right to self-defense with a firearm. You cannot deny someone's rights just because you prefer to trust the government to protect you.

But I’m only getting started. Judge Reinhardt is also the fellow who said, “I don’t believe the Constitution says that individuals have a right to bear arms.” Judge Reinhardt, let me introduce you to the Second Amendment.
 

NH: Let teachers have weapons at school

We trust the teachers and staff of our schools with our children. Why not trust them with guns? If we encourage any teacher or other trusted employee to be trained and to have a gun in a lock box by their desk, I doubt there will be any problems in New Hampshire.

The nuts have made it very clear that they are deterred by even the possibility that someone might be armed and willing to resist. The only places they will attack are those that are officially disarmed.

All gun-control laws violate the Constitution — you know, that contract between the people and the government. The Second Amendment protects an individual's right to keep firearms. There have been two Supreme Court cases on the matter: First, the Congress (not states) have the power to regulate machine guns (fully automatic); and, second, the Second Amendment is an individual right whether the individual is a member of a militia or not.

Of course, talking about gun control in this country is about as loaded as the guns themselves. We have the Second Amendment, allowing us to bear arms, we have the powerful National Rifle Association that goes after anyone brave enough to support gun control, and we have lots of people who believe we're safer if we each pack a pistol.
 

TX: East Texans Weigh In On Proposed Self Defense Bill

Some East Texans are supporting a proposed bill from a state legislator that would give more rights to individuals defending their life and property against attackers. The proposed bill is authored by a Republican state senator from San Antonio. "The victim is clearly not the intruder the lawbreaker. It's the homeowner. This is just common sense that's what this bill is about," senator Jeff Wentworth told KLTV 7 News. Wentworth's proposed bill would give the right to use deadly force, without having to suffer the repercussions of a lawsuit from the intruder or intruder's family.

The knee-jerk response by some to Philly's soaring murder rate is to demand More Laws. Others respond by asking: Why don't we enforce the 20,000 gun laws currently on the books across the nation? The current buzz is about "straw buyers" and "straw sellers" and how to stop them. "Straw buyers" and "sellers" are people with clean records who buy guns legally, then pirouette to sell them - illegally. Those illegal guns create much of the chaos on our streets.

The Washington Supreme Court has armed cities and counties with the power to regulate gun shows on public property. In seeming conflict with its July decision on the state's Defense of Marriage Act, in which the high court ruled that state law is as the Legislature wrote it, the majority in Thursday's ruling on a Sequim gun show said that state law prohibiting local governments from regulating gun shows doesn't do that after all.

Making minor changes to a law it adopted in June, the Jersey City Council approved another ordinance last week banning the sale or purchase of more than one handgun within a 30-day period. The previous ordinance essentially accomplished the same thing. But the new ordinance, adopted Wednesday, makes it clear that the 30-day sale rule applies to both sellers and buyers and also applies to law enforcement employees, said Thomas Jardim, the attorney representing the city.

State law puts local sheriffs in charge of issuing permits for handguns and pistols but not shotguns and rifles. In Orange County, the Sheriff's Office requires three notarized affidavits that the person is of "good moral character," a background check and a questionnaire. A person must be 21 or older to get a permit to buy a handgun, and there is a waiting period. Denials can be appealed in District Court. Shotguns and rifles are handled differently.

In strong opposition to recently proposed legislation that would allow teachers to carry guns in schools, a second man has entered as a write-in candidate against Rep. Frank Lasee, R-Bellevue, the proposal's sponsor. Manitowoc County Board Supervisor Ted Zigmunt, a Democrat, said he was planning to run against Lasee in 2008 for the 2nd Assembly District seat, but Lasee’s recent proposal “tipped the scales” for the election this November. Zigmunt added he’s optimistic because “the time is right to beat Mr. Lasee.”

Doesn't this explanation sound remarkably familiar? Robert Hill, the brother of 15-year-old Ivy Chambers of Harrisburg, who apparently accidentally killed himself with a stolen gun last week, says: "It's either you're going to get shot and die, or you're going to have a gun and at least a chance, then go to jail." The National Rifle Association and other proponents of gun rights regularly tout the value of packing a gun to protect one's self from becoming the victim of a crime. Their motto is: "Guns save lives."

One suspect is dead, and the other two missing, in an armed robbery.

In this case, police say the employees were directed to the back of the store and tied up. But one employee broke free, pulled out a gun, and shot Michael Sams of Chicago, one of the armed robbers. Sams did not survive.

Sergeant John Wittkowski of the Grand Rapids Police Department told 24 Hour News 8, "The store manager shot one of the suspects, killing the individual. Two other suspects fled the scene in an unknown direction." Lt. Paul Warwick tells 24 Hour News 8 the store manager was legally carrying the gun. It was registered to him.

Buckeye Firearms Association has always described itself as a non-partisan political action committee. Yet in recent days, PAC Chairman Jim Irvine has been in conversation with a reader who takes exception to the endorsement of Democrats. (For an excellent article on the NRA's endorsement of Democrats in national races, click here)

In a bit of ironic timing, as this conversation was going on, another Buckeye Firearms Association volunteer was having her own conversation with just the type of Republican this PAC could never endorse.
 

Iraq Through a Rebel's Eyes

Thomas Jefferson was a rebel, as so many of his comments demonstrated. He also was a gun enthusiast, and not the bird-shooting kind. His gang of insurgents fought the British with the eighteenth century equivalents of assault rifles, RPGs, and roadside bombs — and that is why they are worth recalling when our conversation turns to Iraq.

When it comes to political flips, it would be tough to beat the acrobatics of Assemblyman Leland Yee. In the final 48 hours of the Legislature's 2006 session, the San Francisco Democrat managed to both brag about co-authoring a landmark gun control bill and then, at the urging of Republican gun fans, turn around and help kill the very same bill.

The United States Coast Guard has a new mission for the waters off of these quiet shores. For the first time, Coast Guard officials want to mount machine guns routinely on their cutters and small boats here and around all five of the Great Lakes as part of a program addressing the threats of terrorism after Sept. 11.
And, for the first time in memory, Coast Guard members plan to use a stretch of water at least five miles off this Michigan shore as permanent, live fire shooting zones for training on their new 7.62 mm weapons, which can blast as many as 650 rounds a minute and send fire more than 4,000 yards.
