WI: Self-defense lessons, not guns, needed
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
In most of these stories, it is obvious that if either the victim or a bystander had known one basic self-defense move, they could have incapacitated the assailant with one well-placed blow. Many people make the mistake of punching or wrestling with the attacker, which leaves them vulnerable.
 

AZ: High court agrees to rule on timing of self-defense change

The Arizona Supreme Court on Monday agreed to rule on whether a new state law on self defense applied to a murder defendant who was awaiting trial when changes favorable to defendants took effect earlier this year.

...

Instead of making a defendant prove he acted in self defense by the relatively low standard of proof of more likely than not, the new law requires that prosecutors prove by the stiffer standard of beyond a reasonable doubt that a self-defense claim was unfounded.
 

VA: State raids hunting clubs

At about 5 a.m., Henshaw awoke to a Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries officer at the front door telling him to come out of his house and listen to his rights. Henshaw was subsequently placed under arrest for operating an illegal hunting enclosure in the state of Virginia.

[Henshaw's business instead fits the description of a private hunting PRESERVE, which is legal.]

In effect, Henshaw and Davis will have to pay the state to destroy their businesses.

Davis said that during a prolonged interrogation period, he was questioned repeatedly about his personal business as well as about Henshaw. Officers present even took Davis' photo album and the memory card from his digital camera.

Serious supporters of the Second Amendment and the right to self-defense of ones person, family and personal property, fully understand the amendment has nothing whatsoever to do with hunting, skeet and trap, or Cowboy Action Shooting. It has to do with protecting ourselves from a tyrannical out-of-control government.

Once we've taken care of homosexuals and smokers we can go after gun owners. Let's remove their right to bear arms because we believe that guns are responsible for all of the violent crime in this country. Besides that, we saw Bambi and can't stand the thought of that cute little dear with a bullet between his eyes. I say down with guns, up with Bambi.

In a vain attempt to lure pro-gun voters, all too many policymakers have gone silent on America's increasing firearms toll while mouthing gummy bromides in support of the gun lobby's erroneous intepretation [sic] of the Second Amendment.

Reforms in the sales practices of a gun store that prior to May 1999 sold more than half the guns recovered from criminals in the Milwaukee area resulted in a 44 percent decrease in the flow of new guns to criminals in the city, according to a study by researchers with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Center for Gun Policy and Research that appears in the September/October issue of The New York Academy of Medicine's Journal of Urban Health.
 

Australia: Buyback has no effect on murder rate

HALF a billion dollars spent buying back hundreds of thousands of guns after the Port Arthur massacre had no effect on the homicide rate, says a study published in an influential British journal.

The report by two Australian academics, published in the British Journal of Criminology, said statistics gathered in the decade since Port Arthur showed gun deaths had been declining well before 1996 and the buyback of more than 600,000 mainly semi-automatic rifles and pump-action shotguns had made no difference in the rate of decline.

OH: Exploring the Corporate Anti-Gun Mentality

Regular readers of this website have seen a lot of material regarding a private business’s choice to prohibit licensed patrons from carrying a handgun for self-defense. A legally binding sign in Ohio may be almost anything at all. It could consist of only two words: “No Guns”. However, those two words imply so much more. They imply that management somehow thinks such a sign creates a magic bubble around the front door that repels evil. They imply that your money isn’t welcome if you’d like to spend it while ensuring the safety of your family.

As Kimveer Gill and Dragolub Tzokovitch have shown in recent weeks, little stands between a mentally unstable person and perfectly legal semi-automatic handguns and rifles.

To get a licence to buy such restricted firearms, all a deranged person has to do is answer No to gun-licence application questions about suicide attempts, alcohol addiction, divorce, job loss, bankruptcy and calls to police about violent behaviour.

It was one of those slap your forehead, why didn’t I think of that, moments.

When I heard Michigan Republican state Representative Frank Lasee’s suggestion that teachers should be armed in schools, I thought it was the most brilliant idea I have ever heard.

However, I did find one caveat with it.

I think that we were very lucky that this boy's weapon jammed or else we could have had the worst school shooting in history. Parents, talk to your children now. Tell them that you love them and are genuinely concerned about them.

If you have guns, keep them locked up and unloaded and teach the kids gun safety. Tell them that, if they hear about another student's plan to do harm or see a weapon at school, tell someone like a principal, counselor, parent, police, etc. even if they think it is a joke.

Time is running out on the provincial gun amnesty so the Camrose Police Service is reminding individuals to call the office to have their old guns picked up.

Throughout the month of October, the Camrose Police Service has been collecting shot guns, handguns, ammunition, replica or imitation firearms, pellet guns, and other dangerous weapons such as pepper spray and knives.

In an effort to get unwanted guns off the street, Albertans can safely hand over their illegal or unwanted firearms and ammunition to police without facing charges for possessing unregistered and unlicensed weapons.

Police chiefs don't appear to be having such a great effect on the ability of Boston gang-bangers to get guns and shoot each other on a weekly basis ("Pandering on gun permits," Oct. 20). My license took four months, eight meetings with the chief's licensing officer and three sets of fingerprints. All for someone with not a mark on his record. Works just great?

Almost two years of planning, designing and moving 500,000 yards of dirt is about to pay off for Joey Beaubouef. The DeSoto Parish native who lives in Shreveport is about two months away from opening what he calls this region's one-of-a-kind private gun club and tactical training facility. Patterned after the popular Thunder Ranch formerly operated in Kerrville, Texas, Beaubouef's Long-Range Alley Gun Club, LLC and Trinity Tactical Institute, LLC will offer experiences for gun enthusiasts and law enforcement officers not found within 1,500 miles.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- A man shot and killed himself inside his sister's Penn State University apartment on Sunday, ending an eight-hour standoff with police, the school said.

Qwynton Armstead, 24, of Philadelphia, barricaded himself inside one of the apartment's four bedrooms, authorities said. University police, and then state police, were negotiating with him from the kitchen, school spokesman Bill Mahon said Sunday.

Armstead was not a student, but his sister attended Penn State and lived in the apartment, Mahon said. No other injuries were reported.

Washington CeaseFire can't plant flowers fast enough to keep up. The organization, dedicated to reducing gun violence, has planted flowers at Green Lake Park every year as lasting memorials to people who have been shot to death. But Ralph Fascitelli, president of the organization, lamented how 600 people -- three times as many as the number of daffodil and tulip bulbs buried Sunday -- have died in gun violence in Washington just this year. CeaseFire, on its 14th annual Day of Remembrance, planted 200 bulbs in unseasonable sunshine near the Bathhouse Theatre at the park Sunday.

It was with some shock, anger and sadness that I just learned of the impending Nov. 5 closure of the San Gabriel Valley Gun Club. The Gun Club was where my son and I first did our target shooting together. When my son wanted a .22-caliber rifle, I looked around the area and was pleasantly surprised to find an open-air gun range so close to our house in Downey, not more than 30 minutes away.
 

VA: Pig slaughter raises questions

Danny Henshaw, a former police officer who'd done undercover narcotics work, is a former nationally ranked bow-hunter who made hunting videos for a decade. The last thing he expected was to be arrested in a SWAT-style raid on his Buckingham County hunting preserve and to see his herd of Russian boars slaughtered by shotgun-toting state and federal officials.

The government calls it "depopulation," an effort to stop a potentially deadly livestock disease. But to the Henshaws and some independent farmers, what happened was a horror, an overreaction, and-- with nearly 80 hogs taken by 12-gauge shotguns-- overkill.

And now the U.S. Department of Agriculture is investigating whether its own procedures were followed in the depopulation.

It's an American way of death. More than 30,000 people die from gunshot wounds every year, through murder, suicide and accidents.

That is an average of 82 a day, and prospects for reducing the toll are dim.

The debate between gun control advocates and the pro-gun lobby was reignited briefly this month by four school shootings between September 26 and October 9.

"The Bush administration is in complete denial regarding the catalytic role that guns play in school violence," said Kristen Rand of the Violence Policy Center, which like other gun control advocates was not invited to the conference.

"How is it even possible to have a discussion about preventing school shootings without talking about guns?"

OK: Shotgun blast hurts two at gun show

Two men were injured Saturday morning at the Wanenmacher's Tulsa Arms Show at Expo Square when a vendor accidentally discharged a shotgun.

Joe Wanenmacher, the gun show's manager, said the vendor was examining a double-barreled .410-gauge shotgun that he thought was loaded with a snap cap.

However, when the vendor pulled the trigger, the shotgun fired a blast through his display case, Wanenmacher said. The pellets ricocheted off the floor and struck two men standing nearby.

When handling a firearm, Wanenmacher said, safety should always be the top concern: "A good rule is when handling a gun, assume it's loaded, even if you know it's unloaded"
