"The newspaper industry is operating a marketplace for illegal gun transfers according to a report released today by the Campaign to Close the Newspaper Loophole. A copy of the report 'The Newspaper Classifieds - Marketplace for Illegal Gun Transfers' is posted online at http://www.gunloophole.com."

"Unlike licensed firearms dealers, private individuals who sell guns through classified ads in newspapers are not required to conduct criminal background checks on their buyers or keep records of their transactions. ... The classifieds also provide a venue for gun traffickers to illegally 'engage in the business' of dealing in firearms without a license to do so." ...

"A Gallup poll from June of this year found that 21 percent of Americans think the PATRIOT Act does not go far enough in restricting civil liberties to investigate terrorism, and 41 percent feel that it is 'about right.' Only 30 percent of Americans feel that the PATRIOT Act goes too far in restricting civil liberties."

"There are always some lawmakers, however ... who think they know better than the vast majority of Americans. The Los Angeles Times reported that on Friday, a bipartisan group of senators rejected a deal on the renewal of the PATRIOT Act. This means that Congress will not vote until after Thanksgiving on the White House's bill extending provisions of the act that are set to expire at the end of this year." ...

"The right to keep and bear arms is one of the least respected rights in America. It's in the Constitution, but so many people fear non-governmental people with guns that the freedom to defend yourself with a gun is restricted in every state of the union."

"Severely in most."

"The anti-gun mentality reared its ugly head during the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans. ..."

"The reaction of government? Over-reaction. New Orleans's deputy sheriff was quoted as saying, 'No one will be able to be armed. We are going to take all the weapons.' And that's what the government military presence did in the soaked streets of New Orleans. Troops went door to door, confiscating guns. From everyone, not just a criminal few."

"In an instant, the controlled chaos of holiday shopping turned bloody when a man strolled into a busy shopping mall and opened fire on shoppers with an assault rifle. Sunday’s shooting rampage at the Tacoma Mall, coming just days before the start of the holiday crush, highlighted the vulnerability of America’s shopping centers."

"At malls across the country, thousands of people come and go ... And there is always the possibility that somewhere in the crowd is a disgruntled employee, a jilted lover or a mental patient on the edge.

"'If someone is determined, I don’t know that you can prevent it,' said Capt. Mark Couey, who heads homeland security for the Washington State Patrol." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A Papa John's Pizza delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint in Arlington while delivering a pizza.

Police say the man was forced to hand over his wallet and money at an apartment complex off Arlington Expressway Friday night.

Police reports show the victim knocked on an apartment door several times, but no one answered. He turned and found himself face to face with his attacker who was pointing a semi-automatic pistol at his face.

The driver was not hurt, but his wife says similar robberies have happened to some of her husband's co-workers in the past.
-------

Submitter's Note: Although Florida has had 'shall issue' for over a decade, Papa John's policy is to disarm its employees.

"National Public Radio is reporting on a move that would ensure employers in Florida could not deny their workers' Constitutional right to bear arms self-defense while traveling to and from their workplace."

"Although the report quotes advocates on both sides of the issue, NPR repeats statistics that completely fail to take into account that the majority of workplace homicides are directly related to another crime, most often robbery."

"Citing the National Institute for Occupational Safety And Health at the Centers for Disease Control, the NPR report states that 'there are more than ten homicides in the workplace every day and that 'the vast majority of those are committed with guns.' What the NPR reporter conveniently does not mention is what else NIOSH has to say about workplace homicides:" ...

"An increase in violent robberies on and around the University of Pennsylvania campus this fall has spread fear among students and stirred memories of the situation a decade ago, when the area was one of the city's more dangerous."

"University police say that at least 10 students were among the victims in 16 robberies, some at gunpoint, reported since Oct. 1. The victims have often been punched or knocked to the ground, and one female undergraduate was pistol-whipped, police said." ...

"A former Fort Lewis soldier was kidnapped and beaten to death because he owed money to one of his fellow soldiers, federal prosecutors say."

"Christopher Jerry, 22, was killed near a gate at the Army post on Aug. 31, two weeks after he was discharged from the military ..."

"Michael Antonio Jordan, a soldier from Jerry’s unit and the victim’s roommate, was indicted this past week on charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder ..." ...

"According to charging papers, Jerry borrowed $1,500 from Jordan to retrieve his Ford Explorer from a towing yard."

"When Jerry didn’t pay back the money, Jordan ... lured Jerry to a remote wooded area by telling him they were going to a party, documents said." ...

"Television and movies have shown the public that citizen's arrests are for the guy who cuts another motorist off while driving or the kid who plays baseball with someone's mail box."

"Instead, it's serious."

"Local law enforcement says citizen arrests are not myths but something that is rarely practiced and can be dangerous."

"'I've heard people say they're going to make a citizen's arrest,' said Cpl. Stephen Ewing of the Salisbury Police Department. 'They just don't understand the constraints.'" ...

"In Ewing's 19 years, however, no one has attempted to detain a serious felon -- those who commit crimes including murder, rape or armed robbery." ...

Submitter's Note: Possibly because for years 'civilians' have been disarmed and told that they should leave such jobs to the police? Let's ask Kitty Genovese.

"A PRISON officer faced a nightmare scenario when he shot dead an escaping prisoner at St Vincent's Hospital, a defence counsel told a jury yesterday."

"Robert Richter, QC, said Fabrizio Federico, 31, told police he thought burglary suspect Garry Whyte, 39, knew he was armed and probably wanted his gun."

"But prosecutor Chris Ryan said earlier that Federico panicked and forgot his training when he fired two shots at Whyte in a hospital corridor on May 7, 2002."

"Opening the Supreme Court trial, Mr Ryan said Federico ignored the fact that Whyte was alone, unarmed and handcuffed and that another prison officer, who helped escort Whyte to the hospital, was able to help." ...

"Chris Tietgens owned 15 different guns by the time he was 15."

"Now, at age 66, he has a room full of firearms as part of his personal collection."

"The Leominster resident has firearms that date back to the early-1800s, firearms German soldiers used in World War II, original Winchester rifles and a pocket-pistol made in Fitchburg in the early-1900s."

"Tietgens collects firearms, hunts and competes in target competitions."

"'They represent a whole line of interests,' he said. 'It's not just a one-thing reason.'"

"Tietgens does not understand why anyone would wonder why he owns so many guns."

"'It's the view of the person that knows less and less about firearms,' he said." ...

"We do, however, regulate the handling of those weapons. We don't allow people to fire them in crowded neighborhoods unless they are defending themselves. We don't allow convicted felons to own guns because they have proven that they cannot be responsible."

"We do allow for responsible citizens to file for concealed-carry permits. Under the provisions of the permit, people are allowed to carry loaded weapons with them at home, in their vehicles or physically on their person."

"That's a responsible way to handle the issue of guns in the communities in which we live. People who take the time to go through the concealed-permit process are, in all but the rarest of exceptions, responsible gun owners who not only know how to properly use a weapon, but when as well." ...

"Police tape is still tied to a light post ... where one car approaching the intersection slammed into another."

"The man inside the vehicle that was hit, 37-year-old Wallace Jones, got out his car and confronted the other driver. The two men argued, then shots rang out."

"Police arrived and found Jones lying on the pavement with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was later pronounced dead at Jackson Hospital." ...

"Police say this case is considered a death investigation and not a homicide. The distinction implies the shooting is considered either accidental or made in self-defense. All police are saying at this point is that they're looking for a 'person of interest,' the man who was driving the car that hit Jones." ...

"Our 2nd amendment gives us the right to 'keep and bear arms.' This doesn't mean that all people can carry a concealed weapon."

"To do this requires a Concealed Firearm Permit. There is a minimal amount of training including several hours of classroom instruction and time on the range to exhibit proficiency with weapons. Anyone can get a CFP, without having to give a reason, unless the person is prohibited from doing so." ...

Submitter's Note: Actually the Second Amendment protects a G-d given, natural, human, civil right to carry any weapon, openly or concealed, without let or hindrance.

"A research report titled 'Factors Related to Hunting and Fishing Participation Among Today's Youth' has been released. Conducted by Responsive Management, and commissioned by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the findings support what many of us have suspected for a long time."

"For instance, kids who hunt now are more likely to hunt in the future, especially compared to adults who take it up later life. However, the study also found that some of our assumptions are false." ...

"Baraboo's Viking Express convenience store was a busy place Saturday as hunters rolled in with does and bucks in their vehicles. A crew of store workers helped them register their game, including measuring the spread of antlers and tagging the animals' ears." ...

"Deer hunting used to be pretty simple. About all the hunter needed years ago was a dependable rifle, a good pair of boots, a warm jacket and a stump in the woods to sit on."

"But the hunters who take to the woods today for deer season are likely to bear little resemblance to hunters of old."

"That beat-up old rifle has been replaced by a powerful weapon with a synthetic stock and a digital scope. The red and black checked wool jacket has given way to fleece and blaze-orange Gore-tex."

"The trusty compass has been jettisoned in favor of a computerized Global Positioning System unit. Instead of walking to your hunting spot, you hop on your ATV." ...

On the very day the state Board of Education was gallantly attempting to raise the bar for high school graduation, classrooms across the state were decimated with absences."

"It was not the bird flu that produced 20-percent absenteeism or more. It was the opening day of hunting season in Michigan. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition."

"OK all you National Rifle Association types, put down your weapons. There is nothing wrong with young teens going hunting with the old man or old lady or both. The bonding is a good thing. But it clearly sends the wrong signal that thousands of students, supposedly with the blessing of some adult, played hokey and probably chuckled at their silly teachers all the way into the woods." ...
