Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Mass murders in Dunblane, United Kingdom, and Port Arthur, Australia, provoked rapid responses from the governments of both countries. Major changes to Australian laws resulted in a controversial buy-back of longarms and tighter legislation. The Australian situation enables evaluation of the effect of a national buy-back, accompanied by tightened legislation in a country with relatively secure borders. AutoRegressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) was used to predict future values of the time series for homicide, suicide and accidental death before and after the 1996 National Firearms Agreement (NFA). ..." ...

Investigators want to know why a man who was shot and killed was in a family’s home.

It's the first deadly shooting in Gillespie county in ten years. Deputies say it appears 30-year-old Dan Speight broke into the homeowners garage. That homeowner woke up, walked up to Speight and asked what he was doing.

The homeowner told deputies Speight didn't answer, but ran towards him. Investigators say the homeowner shot Speight twice.

Dan Speight did have a criminal history in Gillespie County. He’d been arrested and convicted for burglary.

"She went to her front door with her .38-caliber revolver and fired a shot in the direction of the burglar as he ran eastward from her home, according to police reports that documented her story." ...

"Both the Republican and Democrat parties are a disgrace! In 1968 the late Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace stated:"

"'There isn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties.'"

"Both Republicans and Democrats should be ashamed! I respect neither. Why a dumbed down, docile, and ignorant public continues parroting the two party 'Republicrat' rant is insanity. They should know better.

"Mary Starrett, Constitution Party candidate for Oregon governor, remains the credible choice. Again: Both political cartels embrace big government ... and gun control." ...

"Jeff Russell, Libertarian candidate for United States Senate from New York, in a letter yesterday to various gun organizations called for an end to gun registration and said, all law-abiding citizens should be allowed to own firearms."

"Registration is the first step toward confiscation, he said. Pointing to what happened in New Orleans last year after Hurricane Katrina, Russell noted that the government used registration lists to conduct house to house searches seizing all firearms that had been registered."

"Government should not make self-defense a crime, he said, adding that he had never seen a gun control law that he supported. He called these laws feel good legislation that do nothing to make us safer. ..." ...

"October 26, 2006 was the deadline to file the pre-General Election campaign finance reports in Ohio. A review of these initial reports reveals a few substantial surprises if you are a GOP office holder. Adding to what certainly will be a tumultuous shakeup of the Ohio GOP party leadership after this election is the fact that the police PACs have decided to throw their money strongly to Ohio Democrats."

"... The disclosure of these campaign donations is the equivalent of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) leaving a voicemail breaking off the affair, and they want their class ring and letter jacket back." ...

"Ohio Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Blackwell has been described by some conservatives as a rising political star."

"Blackwell's platform includes support for the Second Amendment right to bear arms as well as fiscal and social conservatism. But that apparently hasn't helped him, as the latest polls put him between 4 and 20 points behind the Democratic nominee Rep. Ted Strickland."

"Yet, Blackwell has stayed true to his conservative base and refuses to run to the center."

"Blackwell, regardless of his conservative pedigree, is tainted by the two previous GOP governors, Bob Taft and George Voinovich, who for sixteen years between them, held up legal concealed carry in Ohio." ...

"Nearly one of every 25 weapons the military bought for Iraqi security forces is missing, a government audit said yesterday. Many others cannot be repaired because parts or technical manuals are lacking."

"The Pentagon can't account for 14,030 weapons - almost 4 percent of the semiautomatic pistols, assault rifles, machine guns, rocket-propelled launchers and other weapons it began supplying to Iraq since the end of 2003, according to a report from the office of the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction."

"The missing weapons will not be tracked easily: The Defense Department registered the serial numbers of only about 10,000 of the 370,251 weapons it provided." ...

"A father and his eight-year-old son got off a train at Blackpool on a Friday evening two weeks ago to be confronted by a number of police officers moving passengers towards a scanner. There was a mildly threatening manner about them and it was clear that they expected everyone to pass through the scanner, which they said was being used to search for knives." ...

"... The British Transport Police may insist that its Operation Shield, as this random trawl is known, is for the common good in that it fights knife crime, but think twice about the attitude it betrays and you realise that it is another small erosion in the esteem for the individual. Such behaviour makes everyone a suspect." ...

... "I gave him the [No Guns = No Money] card. As I started to leave he stopped me. He ... said I made a convincing argument. After another 20 minutes of talking he said he would be taking the sign down as long as I agreed to never come into his store unarmed. As I was leaving I told him I would make it easy for him and would be happy to take the sign down for him. When I started to hand it to him I asked if I could have it for a keepsake and he told me I could. I thanked him again, shook his hand, and told him I would be happy to be armed and protect him, his employees, and his unarmed customers anytime I was there. As I was leaving, two of the cashiers smiled. One gave me a thumbs up and the other mouthed 'Thank You' to me." ...

"Newsnet5.com is reporting that three Ohio cities are included in a list of the twenty-five most dangerous cities in America. Cleveland was ranked as the Seventh most dangerous city, Youngstown edged into the Top 10 at number Nine, and Cincinnati was ranked Eighteenth." ...

"Thankfully, Ohio has joined forty-eight other states that allow proven law-abiding citizens to carry a handgun for self-defense. From time to time someone will ask me, 'Why do you think you need to carry that gun?' My default answer of 'Because I want to protect my family from criminals that carry guns' can now be slightly altered to 'Because I want to protect my family from criminals that carry guns in some of the most dangerous cities in America that I often visit.'"

"The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to meet on Wednesday, November 1, at 9:00 a.m. to discuss proposed changes to the county’s firearms ordinances."

"Among the changes likely to be discussed is a countywide prohibition on the discharge of firearms within 200 yards of a dwelling, a business establishment, a public building, a public gathering, or a public meeting place. Such an arbitrary ban on lawful firearms discharge could directly affect the county’s sport shooting ranges."

"These proposed measures seem are a solution in search of a problem. There is no evidence that the lawful discharge of firearms is a public safety concern in Albemarle County." ...
