"'The bullet, of Swiss origin, was still in its brass casing, complete with enough gunpowder for it to fire itself.'
-- U.K. Guardian Series"

"How does a bullet fire itself?"

"We are all familiar with the anti-gun rhetoric that prefers to hold guns responsible for crime rather than the criminal who commits the act. In the U.K., however, it's not just the guns that are to blame, it's the bullets, too. A single round of .22 caliber ammunition was found in a doorway recently in the United Kingdom which sparked a full investigation. Although there was no gun to be found, the single round of ammunition was considered dangerous and leaving such ammunition lying around is a crime." ...

"... I must conceive they were mistaken in their politics, and that this system does not secure the unalienable rights of freemen. . . . Whatever might be their intent, according to my views, it will lead to the most dangerous aristocracy that ever was thought of--an aristocracy established on a constitutional bottom! I conceive (and I believe most of this committee will likewise) that this is so dangerous, that I should like as well to have no constitution at all...."

"A freshman at East Ridge High School in Lake County was arrested for allegedly bringing a loaded gun to school in his backpack."

"The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that OhioGOP party chair Bob Bennett is considering carrying on as party chair, claiming to have learned a few things after voter anger left heavy Republican casualties at the polls." ...

"To gun owners still stinging after years of hearing anti-gun rhetoric from Bennett Republicans like Bob Taft, Betty Montgomery, George Voinovich and Mike Dewine, Bennett's realization about whom his party serves has come far too late. And comments about his inability to understand the source of Bob Taft's ultra-low approval ratings raise questions of just how much of a lesson Bennett has actually learned." ...

"Marjory Fagan stood motionless, slowed her breathing, stared ahead intently and then moved her index finger almost imperceptibly. Bang! Wincing slightly from the .22-caliber rifle’s recoil and piercing boom, she steadied herself, leveled the rifle and pulled the trigger again."

For Fagan, who is in her 60s, carries a designer handbag and lives on Manhattan’s fashionable Upper West Side, spending a Saturday at the shooting range was something different. The free women’s instructional clinic she was attending at the West Side Rifle Range offered women, many of whom had never handled a gun before, an opportunity to learn how to shoot." ...

"Dr. Peter R. Lewis, member, Steering Committee of Physicians for Social Responsibility, calls for the limiting, recall and regulation of our Second Amendment rights as guaranteed under the Constitution ('As I See It,' Oct. 29)."

"Dr. Lewis doesn't like firearms, particularly handguns. He claims firearms are used in almost 30,000 deaths per year in this country. He cites no source for this figure."

Submitter's Note: The figure is from the CDC and includes all firearm deaths; accidents, suicides and justifiable homicides along with homicides.

"The Department of Health and Human Services estimates the number of physicians in the United States to be 700,000. Accidental deaths caused by these 700,000 physicians are estimated at 120,000 per year. That's four times the firearms deaths cited by Dr. Lewis."

"It was a gloomy day to hang outside -- pouring rain, gusty winds and unrelentingly gray November skies."

"But none of that mattered to Jenni Blodgette of Clinton Township. She was a camouflage-clad hunter on a mission, making use of the outdoor shooting range at Pontiac Lake State Park."
