Canada: Youth take back their schoolyards

THE FIGHTING back has begun.

This week, two teens at a Halifax-area high school disarmed a peer who had a sawed-off shotgun in his backpack.

Were they brave or foolhardy? Probably both, but that’s almost beside the point. The two young men represent a new way of thinking in these scary times.

Given the growing slaughter visited upon schools and workplaces by demented beings with guns, ordinary people everywhere are emerging from under their desks and saying: Enough!

VA: Packing heat in public places may be legal, but police have the right to run background checks

We understand that in Virginia it is considered permissible to carry firearms openly, whether in vehicular gun racks or strapped to one's person. It's the law.

That said, we can understand why many if not most people are uncomfortable when civilians patronize a local eatery and orders up a meal while packing weaponry. This isn't the Wild West, after all.

Three men, all members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, pulled a gambit they have become famous for: entering a business establishment -- generally a restaurant -- while openly displaying sidearms, then waiting to see what happens. It's plainly an in-your-face tactic designed to provoke a reaction -- and in the Casa di Scotto's case, it did.

Police in the western Michigan community of Wyoming entered two classrooms at Lee Middle and High School on Thursday and announced there was a threat to the school, The Grand Rapids Press reported.

Students, who were unaware police were conducting a drill, were taken from the classroom into the halls, patted down by officers and asked what they had in their pockets, the newspaper said.

"Some of these kids were so scared, they just about wet their pants," said Marge Bradshaw, a parent with four children in Godfrey-Lee Schools. "I think it's pure wrong that the students and parents were not informed of this."
 

OH: Woodhill Advanced CCW Training

Cincinnati’s Woodhill Protection Group generously invited OFCC Coordinators Lance Hart and Mike Kinsey to audit the inaugural run of their new Advanced Concealed Carry Training class. The curriculum was created in order to enhance the basic skills of someone licensed to carry a concealed handgun in Ohio. There is no live fire in the course, as the instructors want to focus on muscle memory, repetition, and the decision-making processes that go into being armed for self-defense. The instructors pointed out that these skills are just as important as being proficient on the range.

Although Rep. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, says controversial gun legislation he authored is dead for the year, critics are keeping heat on the issue, fearful that it will be slipped into a spending bill when Congress returns after the Nov. 7 elections for a lame-duck session.

FRIGHTENED women are learning self-defence, arming themselves with personal security alarms and exercising in groups following a spate of sex attacks across Brisbane.
In the latest attack on Friday night, a man tried to drag a 20-year-old woman into bushes at Daw Rd, Runcorn, on the southside, but she managed to fight him off.
Police are now investigating at least two rapes and about 25 sexual assaults on bikeways and jogging areas since January.

They are hunting a serial predator believed responsible for many of the attacks, and several copycat offenders.

"The attempt to paint these issues as the center of my 20 years in the Legislature is utterly, completely false," McClintock said. "Yes, I'm pro-life and I support the Second Amendment, and people who are single-issue voters will cast their votes accordingly. But most people put far more emphasis on government efficiency and waste. My views were clearly stated in the most highly watched debate in the history of California (during the recall election)."
 

FL: Board's measured response to security issue was welcome

I flew out of BWI shortly after Sept. 11, 2001. Everywhere I looked, there were big men with big guns in full military uniform. Did I feel safer because of it? No, I felt spooked.

This isn't to say I didn't appreciate their presence, but they didn't make me "feel" safer. They made me feel as if all hell might break out at any moment.

And I was an adult. I could imagine the impression it might leave on a little kid. So the Washington County School Board's swift, but measured response to security concerns comes as a relief.

Something about The Herald-Mail's recent investigation of schoolhouse security initially made me uneasy, but it took me quite a while to put my finger on what it was.

CALGARY -- A raid by Calgary police on the property of a fellow officer at the centre of a firearms firestorm has led to the seizure of dozens of guns.

Americans will not even talk about the possibility of gun control, despite the high number of killings, writes Michael Gawenda.

WITH great fanfare, the Washington Police Department has announced that it has installed something called a Shotspotter — a network of noise sensors — in a number of the city's mainly black neighbourhoods where, as The Washington Post put it, "gunfire has become part of the urban landscape"
 

IN: Judge allows Gary gun suit to proceed

GARY – The city of Gary’s lawsuit against gun manufacturers and local dealers survived a potential setback when a Lake County judge ruled unconstitutional a year-old federal law shielding gun makers from lawsuits.

Lake Superior Court Judge Robert A. Pete denied gun makers’ request to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the city seven years ago that alleges gun makers do little to control the flow of handguns used in crimes.

The federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act became law with backing from the gun industry in response to a wave of lawsuits such as Gary’s, but Pete ruled the law would deprive the city of its rights of due process.

Urban crime may have many contributing factors, but it is no oversimplification to say that unlawful traffic in firearms is a prime culprit with too many places to hide. A national response is needed, and it is not sufficient to count on Congress, where the current trend is to weaken restrictions on the flow of weapons to criminals. Enter Mayors Against Illegal Guns, organized last spring by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. The coalition comprises 109 municipal chiefs from 44 states, running the gamut of party and ideology but united in their disgust with the open market in lethal tools.

Certain headlines scream out for further comment, and this is one: "Stern wants NBA players to leave guns at home."

Man, I love this league. Only in the NBA could the commissioner go from defending the widely criticized new ball to criticizing the players' right to defend themselves. Actually, given the angry reaction to the synthetic leather basketballs, maybe the logical next step for David Stern was to get guns out of the players' hands. You know, in case things escalate.

Kevin Hallinan, senior vice president for security and facilities management for Major League Baseball, said there were no league-wide rules banning firearms at MLB property or events, though individual clubs may do so. He said each team has an active police officer as a part-time security consultant to address questions or concerns about firearms. "We have educated our players with regards to firearms as part of our spring training security presentations," Hallinan said.

Tony Blair called for the national DNA database to be expanded to include every citizen. He said there should be no limit on the development of the database because it was vital for catching serious criminals. Currently in the U.K. only people who have been arrested are required to submit their DNA. However, the government will retain that data regardless of whether the suspect was found innocent or the charges dropped. Now the Prime Minister is publicly supporting a national DNA database to include all of England's subjects.

We know that in the United States over 2.5 million lives are saved each year when the intended victim produces a firearm. Often the perpetrator decides to flee resulting in no injuries to either party.
