"The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) today suggested that San Francisco Supervisor Chris Daly, author of that city's ballot measure to ban guns, should pay for the city's defense of that proposition in court and spare the taxpayers that expense."

"'Supervisor Daly cooked up this gun ban measure and now that it is being challenged in court, he ought to personally cover the legal bills,' said SAF founder Alan M. Gottlieb. ..."

"'Local news organizations, the San Francisco Police Officers' Association, Senator Dianne Feinstein and even Mayor Gavin Newsom all said Proposition H was not going to stand muster under the state preemption law,' Gottlieb noted, 'but Daly pushed it anyway. ..." ...

"I DO NOT oppose hunters and people in their homes having rifles and guns. I think we all have the right to bear arms, especially to protect ourselves. And in this day and age when terrorists want to kill us here in America, we need some type of protection for ourselves."

"I wanted to clear that up because I DO NOT oppose the NRA and their right to defend your rights to bear arms. BUT I DO object to a barrage of phone calls from the NRA and the attempts of SOME of their employees calling us and conning us into joining the NRA."

"I received a call from someone at the NRA about joining the NRA and they feed me a line about the United Nations trying to take the right of the NRA to do this and that and to take our guns from us. ..." ...

"The retired history teacher is part of what appears to be a growing number of women who view carrying a weapon as an essential part of their safety, which has led the firearms industry to offer women only training classes, magazines and clothing for female gun owners." ...

"The firearm deer hunting season begins Tuesday morning, but in a few other counties, hunters are being asked to be on the lookout for another animal: wild boar. And one Bay County hunter already has his trophy pig."

"It was last year when some wild boar escaped from a ... game ranch. When you see the size of the one killed in Bay County, you can understand why some people are getting concerned."

"Nathan Rosenbrock and his brother knew right way what was scaring the family's pigs at their parents northern Bay County farm late Friday night."

"Rosenbrock was able to kill the menacing beast with his rifle. It weighed more than 400 pounds, stood as tall as the front end of his pickup truck, and was getting ready for a pig dinner." ...

Kindig's second wife, Ruby, died barely a week later, a death blamed in part on the emotional trauma she suffered." ...

"Kindig spent much of the party recounting that robbery, telling people about the attack and the gunfire. Just a few feet away from that cake, the hole from the second bullet he fired is still in the door frame, circled for all to see. Robber James Thweatt and his accomplice, Cindy Wilson, were caught, pleaded guilty and are now serving long sentences." ...

"Guns, bombs and teenage boys are not a formula we want anywhere near our schools."

"Twice in a week, Northern Kentucky high schools were the scene of just such a volatile mix. Fortunately arrests were made without anyone getting hurt. At Boone County High School, three boys were involved in the Nov. 4 sale of a stolen 9mm handgun at school. At Campbell County High, two 16-year-olds were charged with 'use of a weapon of mass destruction.' On Nov. 6 they pipe-bombed a soft-drink vending machine outside the school. Three other 16-year-olds were charged with complicity in helping to make the bombs." ...

UT: Loaded Guns in Cars: There's no convincing reason to change the current ban

"Utah law prohibits most people from carrying loaded guns in their cars. Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Lehi, has prefiled a bill in the Legislature to change that. But the reasons for the change are not convincing, and the reasons for keeping the law as is are."

"It seems fairly obvious why the law would discourage folks from packing loaded guns in their cars. An unloaded gun is safe. It can't misfire during handling or be fired accidentally by a child or someone else unfamiliar with the safe operation of firearms." ...

"But Sen. Madsen and Charles Hardy, a member of Gun Owners of Utah, argue that people should be allowed to keep loaded guns in vehicles for self-defense."

"The answer to that is they already can, if they have a concealed-carry permit ... " ...

"A little over two years ago when the state Legislature was in the heat of debate over adoption of concealed-carry laws for Wisconsin we urged state legislators to correct some of the deficiencies in the legislation."

"'Chief among them is the ambiguity over businesses being able to disallow guns on their premises,' we said."

"Some states, we noted, have concealed weapons laws that carry cumbersome language that allow businesses to ban guns from their premises only if they post it and verbally advise each customer who comes through the door. 'That too, is insufficient,' we said. 'Simple posting should be all that is required.'" ...

"The legal loophole that allowed the killer of Leeds police officer Ian Broadhurst to produce home-made bullets is set to be shut tight by MPs today after a tireless campaign in Yorkshire."

"Ex-US Marine David Bieber was jailed for life last December for gunning down the 34-year-old policeman in cold blood on Boxing Day, 2003, and firing at two other officers using a pistol loaded with ammunition made from components that had been bought completely legally."

"The purchase and possession of ready-made ammunition without a firearms licence is illegal, but, as the Yorkshire Post revealed last year, no licence is needed to buy bullet presses, cartridge cases, primers and powder over the counter." ...-------

KABA Note: Of course it seems he had no difficulty in getting a gun without the requisite 'firearms licence'. But hey, maybe if gun control isn't working we can always try bullet control . . .

"An attorney for a state narcotics agent accused of killing a San Jose man during a botched pursuit, presented an expert witness on Monday who testified that an attacker could fire a gun at an officer in less than half the time it would take the officer to shoot back -- even if the officer had his finger on the trigger."

"William Lewinski, founder of the Force Science Research Center at Minnesota State University, showed the six-man, six-woman jury a video of a shooter discharging a gun as he ran away. In one case, Lewinski, said, it took no time at all for the shooter to fire, drop his gun and turn his body, so that any returning bullets would hit him in the back." ...

"A state legislative audit released in January of this year revealed many serious problems within the Opelousas Police Department."

"TV 10 was the first to report on documents stating Chief Larry Caillier and former major Ronnie Trahan paid themselves thousands of dollars for bike patrol details at a public housing complex that were never run."

"The state audit backed up that information. It states that during 2002 and 2003, Caillier and Trahan charged the housing department $55,000 for work that was never done."

"Trahan admitted falsifying time sheets to support that."

"The audit states that between 1999 and 2004, the department deposited over $156,000 into bank accounts out of the city's control." ...

"A Masvingo provincial police official, travelling with armed soldiers, is alleged to be taking equipment from commercial farms in the rural Mwenezi area illegally and selling it at an auction in Masvingo."

"... They seized tractors, trailers, water bowsers, road graders, irrigation pipes and various implements. Chiredzi farmer Gerry Whitehead reports that some farmers were not shown any letters authorising the acquisitions, and others were presented with letters dated back in early May and signed by Minister John Nkomo. Land Reform now falls under the portfolio of Minister Didymus Mutasa. The seizures are therefore illegal, and amount to stealing." ...

"Early reports from this year's deer rifle season suggest that it may be starting slow, and many people conclude it's because of changes in regulations."

"Stations around the state where animals are taken to be weighed and recorded reported that there was a lot less business on the opening weekend."

"'Normally we'd be backed up weighing deer,' said Bob Booth, owner of Bob's Quik Stop in Irasburg."

"Booth said about half the hunters he'd talked to were unhappy about the new regulations, which include a ban on putting out a bait and limits on the deer that can be taken. The other half, he said, were willing to wait to see if the rules make a difference in the size and quality of the herd in the future." ...
