"Three days ago, two Covington store owners had their world shattered when one of them killed a would-be robber in a shootout. Wednesday, as the two went to buy another weapon to protect themselves, they were among five people literally blown out of a Newport military surplus store by a freak explosion."

"He was taking the shells out of the chamber when it apparently jammed and in the process, it fired. ... The mystery...is what that round hit to set of the explosion and fire..."

When the guns are for the police, they are merely called "rifles," but if these same guns had been confiscated by police, they'd be called "assault weapons."

17 of them, at $500 apiece -- and yes, the AR-15 is classified as "an assault weapon" in California's list of banned guns:

"The National Police Agency (NPA) has instructed prefectural police nationwide in charge of training and education to ensure their officers do not overuse their service revolvers."

"NPA last week...relaxed rules governing the use of guns in self-defense."

"Police confiscated 834 [BANNED] pistols in Japan from January to October."

KABA NOTE: Relax self-defense laws for cops, but leave citizens vulnerable to attacks with banned guns. Sounds like the UK.

"The growing terror that Asian gangs inflict on their own communities was described...to a new Asian legislative caucus holding its first hearing ever."

"California Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer, who also sponsored the hearing, estimates there are as many as 25,000 members of Asian gangs."

"...LAPD has one expert on Asian gangs and a plan to move county probation officers to schools will soon mean the redeployment of the only two probation officers assigned to Asian gangs."

"My concern about this order, not having reviewed every detail, is that it kind of undercuts the efforts we've been making as a nation to distinguish ourselves from regimes like the Taliban. It sort of suggests that when the going gets tough, we don't really believe in our ideals either." --Professor Jonathan Entin, who teaches Constitutional Law at Case Western Reserve University

"A national ID card threatens liberty, but it will not enhance safety. Subjecting every citizen to surveillance actually diverts resources away from tracking and apprehending terrorists toward needless snooping on innocent Americans!

"This is what has happened with "suspicious activity reports" required by the Bank Secrecy Act. Thanks to BSA mandates, federal officials are forced to waste time snooping through the private financial transactions of innocent Americans."

Jesse Clawson was murdered with a legally purchased handgun, bought just hours before the slaying.

The Allegan County Sheriff's Department investigated the gun purchase following the attack and is satisfied the firearm sale was legitimate.

"The focus of fault and blame lies solely with William Watts, a delusional, violent mad man," reads the family statement.

Some students are in their 70s. Others are the minimum age of 11, and some of them so slight that Mike Natter of Edgerton puts his hand on their backs to brace them for the recoil of a rifle.

Instead of putting these kids and adults in the field uneducated, Natter makes sure the hunters are responsible and understand how firearms work.

"Corrupt politicians and police are helping to fuel the crime spree. But the experience in China is similar to that in Britain, Australia and other places where tighter controls on guns have been followed by increases in armed crimes.

"That, of course, is precisely what one would expect. When victims are less able to defend themselves, criminals are better able to go about their nasty business." --The Florida Times-Union

Applicants now are being brought before the board only if there are questions about their applications or background.

"Shiny Austrian pistols, Russian cars magically transformed into well-equipped police vehicles, easily concealed tiny stun guns and sophisticated surveillance systems. These are just some of the items average Russian cops can only dream of using in their everyday work but can check out this week at the All-Russian Exhibition Center."

Henrico County Manager Virgil Hazelett has decided to holster his ban on members of the public bringing weapons into county facilities.

The ban, which became effective Oct. 30, came under intense scrutiny both by local Second Amendment activists and members of the Henrico Board of Supervisors. Both worried that the ban conflicted with the state and federal constitutions.

Thank Virgil Hazelett Here!

Anderson said he had not had a chance to take the weapons out when he went to the airport about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday to pick up a friend flying in from Florida.

The Council of State wants more details about an Interior Ministry plan to exempt off-duty officials from a gun-carrying ban.

The ministry originally proposed that all gun licences be revoked, meaning no one would be entitled to carry them _ including off-duty police and soldiers, who can now do so as long as they hold a licence. The ministry then changed its mind and said an exemption should remain for low-ranking soldiers and police.

Posters by the Tyranny Response Team, founded by Libertarian gubernatorial candidate and former Longmont gun store owner Bob Glass, call Mauser unstable and prone to violent anger, and say he is "fraudulently profiting from the tragic death of his son" by conducting "memorial scams." The posters ask people to contact local officials or the Tyranny Response Team if they spot Mauser.

OK, all you scattergunners out there. Time for your annual Sunday morning quiz. Let's start with a show of hands: How many of you haven't yet missed a shot on a pheasant, grouse, duck or quail this season?

Now that we've stopped laughing, we'll get straight to the lie detector test: Was it the wind? Dust get in your eye? Or, as Dana Carvey's Church Lady character on "Saturday Night Live" would have put it, "Could it be...Satan?"

"One day soon, thousands of additional police, fire and rescue workers will come to this counter-terrorism Top Gun, to learn from the best-of-the-best about how to protect America from any future attack on our homeland."

The Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) is advising the IL delegation to the U.S. House to ignore a renewed call for national registration of privately owned firearms.

The ISRA's action comes in response to a Nov. 15 press conference by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. During that Washington press conference, representatives of the gun control industry, including the Brady Campaign, urged implementation of a national gun registration scheme as a means to combat terrorism.
