Police Question Ballistics Database
Submitted by: Anonymous

"Proposals for a Ballistics Imaging and Comparison national database has drawn fire from the Fraternal of Police (FOP) which warns that the technology has multiple drawbacks that make it unwise to implement both it and the national firearms database the plan would require."

"The FOP does not support any federal requirement to register privately owned firearms with the federal government." ...
-------
Meanwhile, LEO members of the FOP will arrest a gunowner who possesses an unregistered firearm in the areas of the country where registration is required by unconstitutional state statute.

"There is a myth of the policeman in modern America. From a very young age we are taught that the police are here to protect us, and 'To serve and protect' is a motto common to many police forces across the country. Sadly, the reality is that the police are not in the protection business."

Illusory thinking on gun control

In the Boston Globe no less...
-------
"We live in a dangerous world. Guns kill; so do explosives strapped to a human body, airplanes turned into weapons, or lethal powder mailed in an ordinary-looking envelope. It may be comforting to think that if we just had the political will to take tough measures, whether against guns or against illegal aliens, we would be safe. But it would be a comforting illusion." ...

"Let's not forget, too, that guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens can actually stop those who prey on the innocent. A largely ignored incident in Pittsburgh, which happened at the same time as the sniper shootings, provides a convincing demonstration."

"A man who committed a half-dozen sexual assaults in the city's East End, eluding police and terrorizing women - not as lethally as the sniper ... but seriously enough - was captured when his intended seventh victim shot and wounded him." ...
 

Crime Rose Again in 2001, FBI Says
Submitted by: Jerry Rowe

WASHINGTON (AP) - "Murder, rape and every other violent criminal act except aggravated assault rose last year, the FBI said Monday in reporting the first year-to-year increase in overall crime in a decade."

"The number of murders increased for the second straight year, following several years of decline, according to the FBI,..."

"The 15,980 murders represented a 2.5 percent increase over 2000, while forcible rapes were up less than 1 percent and robberies rose 3.7 percent. Aggravated assaults fell by a half-percentage point, reaching its lowest level since 1987." ...

"Despite the increase in murders, the FBI said the overall number still is down nearly 33 percent from 1992. Murder accounts for only about 1.1 percent of the nation's violent crime, with aggravated assault making up about two-thirds of the cases and robbery another 29 percent." ...

"Firearms accounted for 8,719 slayings, or about two-thirds, followed by knives, "personal" weapons such as fists and feet, blunt objects and such methods as drugs, strangulation and drowning. There were 10 murders-by-poison in the United States last year, according to the FBI."

REALITY CHECK...

If there were 15,980 murders and 8,719 of them were by firearm, that's not "two thirds"; it's 54.5%. Two thirds would be 66.7%. Two thirds of 15,980 murders would be 10,653 murders -- a difference of 1,934 lives taken.

The Associated Press needs to buy a new calculator -- and stop inflating numbers and percentages in ways that mislead.

NY: Curses: Libertarian Witch to Put Halloween Hex on Olympic Bid

Mixing magic and politics, the Manhattan Libertarian Party announced that it has hired a witch to place a curse on the westside site of the proposed Olympic Stadium. According to party spokesman Jim Lesczynski, the hex is intended to ward off the evil spirits of higher taxes and municipal budget crises.

"We've hired a witch, and we're putting her to work on Halloween, when her powers will be at their peak," said Lesczynski. "New York City is facing an unprecedented $6 billion budget deficit next year, and the last thing it should be do now is squander billions of dollars more on a stadium boondoggle." ...

"This Olympic bid is a corporate wolf in sheep's clothing," charges Lesczynski. "From the corporate sponsors to the TV networks to the pro sports teams that will inherit the facilities, it's one massive corporate welfare scheme. Libertarians advocate the complete separation of sports and state." ...

Through your binoculars, you see a man step out of a white van, pull a rifle with a scope from behind the seat and shoulder the weapon. Standing fifty feet behind him happens to be a civilian who also sees the sniper. The civilian watching the sniper also has something in his hand. Now, here's the question: would you prefer that the object be a cell phone, or that the civilian has a firearm and the ability to use it effectively?" ...
