"Secret Service agents assigned to Barbara Bush, 21, at Yale, briefly detained a man with a gun, the New Haven Register reported Tuesday."

"The newspaper, quoting law enforcement sources, said the man was questioned then released after authorities determined he had a permit to carry the weapon."

"Agents noticed a man watching the president's daughter and, at some point, feeling the man had shown an unusual amount of interest in her, agents confronted and frisked him, discovering he was carrying a gun, the newspaper reported." ...

"When the man consented to let them search his car, agents found a cache of ammunition and other items in the trunk. After being questioned, he was released."
 

Attacking Self Defense

"Having first refused to respect man’s natural right to self-defense, England has now begun actually punishing those who protect themselves. This is madness. Remember these British laws the next time a gun control advocate tells us there is no danger in licensing and registering firearms and their owners. Gun control leads to registration, which leads to confiscation. England is a classic example of this. And as Tony Martin’s case illustrates, outlawing guns quickly leads to criminalizing self-defense."

"Britain, the country once famed for its unarmed bobbies, is now the most violent country in western Europe. This is in spite of the fact that the people have been disarmed and now only the police have guns."

"Repeat."

"The British have been disarmed and only the police have guns in what has become the most violent country in western Europe. And yet, the ultimate goal of gun-ban organizations like the Brady Campaign, the 'Million Mom March', the Violence Policy Center, Americans for Gun Safety, and the United Nations continues to be the disarmament of the people."

Group worries liberal teachers would ‘excise Second Amendment’ from class

"A seemingly innocuous education bill that was expected to be signed into law this year has become entangled in gun politics, leading some lawmakers to withdraw their support from the suddenly controversial measure."

"Soon after Sen. Lamar Alexander’s (R-Tenn.) bill passed 90-0 in June, the Gun Owners of America started to lobby against the House companion bill sponsored by Rep. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.)." ...

"In making its argument, Gun Owners of America points to previous examples of how federal money was used to teach values that the group sees as running counter to the Second Amendment."

"I will admit openly that I carry weapons, both openly and concealed. I will also admit to having done this most of my life." ...

"More recently, I acquired my first firearm. As a new weapon owner, I didn’t even think twice about carrying it on my person. It was a matter-of-fact thing to me. I have never and will never ask anyone’s permission to do what is perfectly natural for me to do. However, most Libertarians and ignorant anarchists cheer when the state passes a concealed-carry law. 'A boost for freedom-lovers everywhere,' 'The state finally respecting the Second Amendment,' et cetera, is what I am hearing on a daily basis. Silly fools . . . ."

"Downtown Oslo turned into the wild, wild West during the night, after as many as eight armed and masked robbers stormed into the postal service's main letter-sorting operation. They grabbed hostages, robbed the department handling valuable mail and fled through Oslo's central train station in a hail of gunfire."

"The hostages were cast aside when the robbers fled, firing shots as police arrived on the scene."

Fifth Letter on the Page

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Editor, Times-Dispatch: I am going to say this again. I should not have to do this two times. There is anarchy on our highways.
I am being tailgated by truckers and bullies in cars. Everybody is violating the speed limit. I-95 has become a very dangerous place to drive. Powerful cars are being driven by bullies. These cars are potential bombs with gasoline in them.

I have traveled I-95 a lot and I have never yet seen a trucker stopped for speeding or tailgating. Something is deadly wrong here. In fact, I rarely see anyone stopped. The state should take down the speed limits because nobody is obeying them anyway. Why is the paper not investigating this serious stituation? I know some people are starting to carry guns and I do not blame them. I am thinking of buying one myself. These tailgaters and speeders are potential murderers. Again, why is your paper ignoring this deadly situation? I personally hold you responsible for this situation for not investigating this.

Many, many people are being threatened by these outlaws. It is a travesty and morally bankrupt for your paper to ignore this. I am an ex-teacher and know what anarchy is. We who drive I-95 may have to take the law into our hands. I am starting to be ashamed of our country for allowing this to happen. Again, I am buying a gun tomorrow.

"Gun control legislation routinely ignores Second Amendment rights. Our Founding Fathers trusted the people to act responsibly with their weaponry. The very life of the nation depended on a well-armed militia that was drawn from the civilian populace. That was the implied compact in the Second Amendment. Americans then and now understood that guns were not toys or killing machines just waiting to jump off a table and start firing on their own volition. Gun ownership carries with it a duty to act responsibly. Claiming to protect children, gun control laws are meant to purposely infringe on the right of the people to bear arms because a government that fears the people will disarm them." ...

"A Minneapolis taxi driver was shot and wounded early this morning, and police say they hope that a surveillance system inside the cab might lead to the arrest of a suspect."

"The driver, whose name was withheld by authorities, was taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. He was listed in serious condition. His injuries were not life threatening, according to police."

"The driver slammed into a wall after being shot by a passenger in the cab just before 1 a.m., police said." ...

This was the third cab driver in four months that has been shot working the overnight shift in Minneapolis. A cabbie died during from the last incident, and the cab companies responded by installing cameras in the cars. Unsurprisingly, this wasn't much of a deterrent.

Students at UW-Stevens Point want the legislature to exempt college campuses from the concealed weapons law if it were to go into effect. They believe that concealed weapons could make it quite dangerous for the university's unarmed campus law enforcement.

The UWSP student government recently passed a resolution that pushes to include a clause that exempts all college properties from allowing anyone to carry a gun. Meanwhile, local activists believe that the ban should be lifted.

“Most of the people in America feel that they are responsible for their own safety,” says National Rifle Association activist Buster Bachhuber.

Currently there are 45 states that permit the use of concealed weapons.

"The recent incidents of rape in Delhi have once again sparked off the debate on law reform."

"While serious law reform is needed, we also need to focus on the fact that insufficient attention is paid to the prevention of rape by planners, administrators and law enforcement agencies."

"Why is it that they do not address the prevention of rape as a serious issue while preparing and executing the blueprints of the constantly changing landscape of cities? Instead of moving into more effective mechanisms of legal enforcement and gender-sensitive planning, each reported incident of rape is reduced to a cautionary tale for women."

-------
Why is it that they look to the government when they create a large part of the problem by disarming women?
