Deer-hunting season opens for gun hunters today, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has safety tips for hunters and non-hunters. The conservation department officials said hunters can prevent hunting-related shooting accidents by assuming every gun is loaded, unloading guns when not in use, keeping muzzles pointed in a safe direction, keeping fingers off the trigger until ready to shoot, being sure of target and beyond, and wearing hunter or blaze orange. They also advised hunters not to take chances with any firearm.

"...that in such Case all America ought to support that Colony in her Opposition; From the Declaration by the Congress to the Throne, that our accumulated Injuries were too severe to be any longer tolerable, & that our Militia would protect Us in Time of Peace; From a Concurrence with the Sentiments expressed to the Inhabitants of Quebec, that We were resolved never to resign our Rights but with our Lives...."

"...We must either resist or infamously submit. If We are resolved to resist, & to defend our Liberties at the Risque of our Lives, a military force & Arms and Ammunition are the only Means. To resolve to resist, without making the necessary Preparations for Resistance, appears to Me to be weak...."

"People who are less likely to be victims share certain traits," Renzi said. "There is the power of words. Also, people can tell by the way you walk, like with your head down. They look for people who are easy targets. You have to be assertive. If something doesn't feel right, there's a reason you feel that way."

Renzi teaches individuals how to defend themselves against weapons, but does not believe teachers should carry guns into the classroom.
 

"I hope the patriotism of the people will continue, and be a sufficient guard to their liberties.

"...the loss of liberty very often resulted from factions and divisions; from local considerations, which eternally lead to quarrels; he would have found internal dissensions to have more frequently demolished civil liberty, than a tenacious disposition in rulers...."

"...No, sir; the spirit of liberty and independence of the people of this country, at present, is such that they could not be enslaved under any government that could be described...."

"...Who are the militia? Are we not militia? Shall we fight against ourselves? No, sir; the idea is absurd. We are also terrified by the dread of a standing army. It cannot be denied that we ought to have the means of defence, and be able to repel an attack...."

Bullzeye is one of several shooting ranges in the metro area that offer the eight-hour training course required by state law to obtain a handgun carry permit. Classes are typically full, and at Range Master on South Mendenhall classes are booked weeks in advance.

"We're here because of the increase in crime in the city, and for the safety of our family," says Sheree Hester, a 29-year-old pharmacist taking the course at Range Master with her husband, Ernest.

"Where do you get a gun?" she asks them. She said they reply, "Oh, it's easy, Ms. Adams. Our friends go get guns at bodegas and buildings."

BEAVERTON -- After several recent incidents in which police officers drew their guns on teenagers with fake firearms, city officials are considering a ban on replica guns in public areas.

Beaverton could be the first Oregon city to adopt the restriction.

"We've escaped tragedy because, luckily, we've resolved these situations without someone being shot," said Officer Paul Wandell, a Beaverton Police Department spokesman. "For responding officers, it's impossible for us to tell if this is a real or a fake gun."

911 Bug: Don't Do Anything Until We Get There.

But many crime emergencies are blocked by an armed citizen, and they often go unreported according to the FBI and diligent scholars. This is an invisible solution often ignored by officials, even thwarted by them.

Throughout the history of 911, problems with 911 have been belligerence of operators, operator skepticism of reporting parties and repeat pranksters, unclear calls without precise locations, various policies on 911 hang-ups, an over-burdening and overwhelming of the system, and general burn-out of operators remaining on the job. As I mentioned in my last piece, some 911 operators have even been found asleep at the console. For many citizens, a placed 911 call simply goes unanswered or is met with a busy signal.

Cincinnati- A man who shot and killed a teenager who stole his car acted in self-defense and will not face criminal charges, a county prosecutor says.

Bennie Hall Jr., 61, feared for his life as a car driven by 14-year-old Qualvale Finnell headed straight toward him, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said Friday. Deters based his conclusion on a police investigation of the Oct. 23 shooting and said he wouldn't take the case to a grand jury.

"Most of us in this room can well remember thirty years ago when it was pretty much a safe assumption that by 2006 private ownership of guns in the United States would be illegal," Blackwell said. "It didn't work out that way. Organizations got very effective in identifying people who supported the Second Amendment."

"Constitutionally protected speech is permitted at the university," said Gail DiSabatino, the university vice president for student affairs. DiSabatino said the university is planning to reply to the foundation's letter.

Clemson Conservatives leader Davis has been in the spotlight before as editor of the Tiger Town Observer, a free monthly publication that receives no money from the university.

The newspaper gave away two guns - one an assault rifle - to bring attention to the Second Amendment right to bear arms and to raise money for the paper and other charitable causes.

The hills are ringing with the resounding thumps and bangs of big bore rifles being sighted in. From my house I can hear the range off Route 6 near Decker Hollow.

The shooting starts early and goes until you can barely see. Across the commonwealth, hunters are getting ready for the coming big game seasons, the first of which will be the three-day regular season for black bears, which starts Monday.

Ed note: (off-topic) As a web developer, I must say this site is very pleasing to the eye.

But the menace of high crime may be on the way, Jett said. Greenleaf is on the western fringe of Canyon County, a fast-growing suburb of Boise. As developers turn alfalfa rows into tract housing and hay bales give way to big box stores, Jett wants newcomers to know criminals will not be "comfortable" in Greenleaf.

"We don't have a crime problem," Jett said. "But this area is going to grow and we're going to keep it that way."

"He [Beckham] was waving [the machete] around in the air saying 'I'm going to kill you'," says Motley.

Carvell says he reacted the only way he could. He grabbed a semi-loaded pistol kept in the office drawer and repeatedly demanded Beckham put down the machete.

He eventually shot him in the stomach.

"Then when he [Beckham] started screaming 'give men the guns or I'll kill you' and then he come at Greg and Greg fired. [Greg] lowered his gun deliberately from his chest area to a place where he was going to wound him," says Greg's father and shop owner Ray Carvell.

The incoming Democratic powers-that-be in the congressional leadership and on the Senate and House Judiciary Committees are a who's who of the gun-control movement: Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Patrick Leahy, John Conyers, Dick Durbin, Joseph Biden, Ted Kennedy, Harry Reid and Herb Kohl, to name a few. If and when gun control roars back to life in 2007-08 -- we expect that it will -- the data unearthed this week in these lawmakers' own backyards by reporter Matthew Cella should loom large.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gun control? It's the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I'm a bad guy, I'm always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You will pull the trigger with a lock on, and I'll pull the trigger. We'll see who wins. Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, whose testimony convicted John Gotti.
