"Authorities said a 17-year-old boy had taken the rifle from a gun cabinet and was holding it when the weapon fired into Madalyn's face. Madalyn, the 17-year-old boy and three other teens had gathered at the 973 Shorewood Lane residence to celebrate the victim's birthday."

Notice how the weapon fired ALL BY ITSELF, according to this story. It, of course, has nothing to do with the teenager who pulled the trigger.

" 'In my house, I don't have weapons,' the mother said. 'I never thought about it because they were in a case that had a lock to it and the door was shut. I assumed the cabinet was locked.' "

" 'He's mentally retarded and emotionally disturbed,' the boy's father said. Whoever loaded the gun is to blame, the father said."

Sounds like people trying to avoid being charged for letting a kid with a reported IQ of 60 have access to a loaded firearm.

"Poll: Vast Majority of Americans Say War on Terror Isn't War on Them"

"A year after the government's response to terrorism began eliciting questions about civil rights, eight in 10 Americans say theirs have been preserved intact."

"Eighty percent in this ABCNEWS.com poll feel the government's efforts to fight terrorism are not intruding on their civil liberties."

"While 17 percent do see an intrusion, fewer — about one in 10 — say either that it's a major intrusion, or an unnecessary one."

Are the people who took this poll the same people who've been trained to believe the Bill of Rights protects the government's power expansion?

"The government wants to revise Switzerland’s gun laws one year on from the worst-ever shooting spree in which a gunman killed 14 people in Zug."

"It has opened consultations on a series of measures to tighten control over gun sales and ownership."

"But critics say that the revisions do not go far enough and fail to address the fundamental problem of widespread private ownership of guns." [emphasis added]

"[The Zug killer] had an assault rifle and this sort of rifle will be restricted in future." --Paul Günter, Social Democrat

"Günter thinks any revision of the gun law should ban Swiss soldiers from taking their guns home when they leave active service."

"Its mission seems as humane as it is clear: to develop 'weapons that are explicitly designed and primarily employed so as to incapacitate personnel or material, while minimizing fatalities, permanent injury to personnel, and undesired damage to property and the environment.' "

"To some critics, however, the Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate (JNLWD), established by Congress in 1997 under Marine Corps command, is obsessed with developing a high-tech arsenal that contravenes U.S. and international law."

"[Lt. Governor Frank Brogan] cited the 10-20-life law, which requires tough sentences for gun crimes; the 'three strikes' law, requiring maximum sentences for three-time felons; and the increase in the percentage of sentences that inmates serve."

"Democrats will announce that they have selected a candidate to replace Sen. Robert Torricelli as the Democratic candidate in the New Jersey Senate election, a Democratic source on Capitol Hill told Fox News."

"But who he is remains to be seen. Former Sen. Frank Lautenberg was on his way to Trenton, N.J., to meet with Gov. Jim McGreevey Tuesday night. An announcement is expected after the state Supreme Court hears arguments Wednesday on whether it should allow Democrats to field a replacement candidate for Torricelli, who withdrew from the race Monday."

"Democratic sources say Lautenberg has agreed to run if Rep. Frank Pallone does not."

"Democrats must first get approval from the state Supreme Court to replace Torricelli [because state law prohibits ballot changes within 51 days of an election], who said that he would rather withdraw his candidacy then risk losing the Democratic majority in the Senate."

"Democrats have a one-seat margin, and Torricelli, who has been immersed in an ethics scandal, had been polling as much as 14 points below Forrester."

"Gruner + Jahr Printing and Publishing Co. said in court papers Tuesday that O'Donnell's decision to quit Rosie magazine has or will cost them "in excess of $100 million dollars in damages." The filing claims O'Donnell, who announced Sept. 18 she was quitting the magazine, breached her contract with G+J and publicly disparaged the magazine."

Previous reports said Rosie pulled out because she wasn't allowed to use the magazine to vent her personal, unAmerican beliefs about, among other things, gun control.
