"Please allow me to blow some holes in Rep. Pat Jones’ myth that 'many women feel much feel differently toward gun control from the way men do' as stated in Holly Mullen’s column, Salt Lake Tribune, Nov. 10." ...

"Third, firearms give meaning to that right where people, due to size, age, or infirmity, lack the physical strength to fight off those who would harm them. As a brochure for the Colt’s Patent Firearms Mfg. Co. put it, 'Have no fear of any man no matter what his size. When danger threatens call on me, and I shall equalize.' Or, as the pro-gun group, Women Against Gun Control, 'Ladies of High Caliber,' likes to proclaim, 'The Second Amendment is the Equal Rights Amendment.' ..." ...

... "One way to possibly lessen the chances of it occurring again, though, is to get guns off the street."

"Don't laugh. I'm serious, even though it's such a quaint notion. The National Rifle Association has spent so much money convincing us that 'guns don't kill people; people do,' that talking about controlling access to guns for anyone makes one sound hopelessly naive or foolish."

"If proposing getting rid of guns is foolish, try this one on: We also ought to get rid of malevolent music, video games like 'Bulletproof' and violence-glorifying movies like Fitty's 'Get Rich -- or Die Trying.'" ...

A homeowner shot and killed an intruder who broke into a home near Memorial Park.

The suspect jumped a fence and broke through the side door of a town home on Lacy at Dettering just north of Memorial Drive. He had a baseball bat.

A man was home with his wife and child. He warned the intruder that he had a gun. That didn't stop him.

The intruder died at the scene. Police say classify the case as a justifiable homicide.

Police are also checking out reports that the suspect may have had an accomplice. Witnesses heard a car speed off after the homeowner fired shots.

"Barking dogs awoke Bill and Anne Mitchell around 1:30 Sunday morning. When Anne looked out, she saw two men in their backyard shed. ..."

"Anne ran for her husband, but what she did not know was Bill was already in the yard confronting one of the burglars. Bill Mitchell said 'I asked what he was doing. He kept running, and I just grabbed him when he ran by.'"

"Because of those [earlier neighborhood] robberies, Bill had shown Anne where he kept his pistol, and she went and got it. Anne Mitchell said, 'I said 'I got the gun honey, you want me to shoot him?' He said 'No, don't shoot him, just go call the Police.'" ...

"One man is dead after a fatal shooting and another is walking free, not likely to face charges."

"Police say 37 year old Wallace Jones got into a traffic accident with another man near Godfrey and Day Streets early Saturday morning. Investigators say Jones then threatened the other driver with a baseball bat."

"Then, the other driver pulled a gun and killed Jones. Now, police say they will not file charges against the shooter, instead sending the case to the grand jury."

"You may wonder how and why police came to that conclusion. The short answer is; self defense. It's not that uncommon a scenario. Police have declined to file charges at least three times in the last year." ...

"I have to admit, I've never, ever understood the reasoning which is routinely used by some to claim that more guns automatically equals more violence. It makes even less sense when the guns being talked about would be in the hands of police:" ...

"Now, there's no doubt that there'd be an alteration in the 'style' of policing. Yes, now when confronted with an armed criminal, the police too would be armed. Seems to be a net positive if you're a policeman."

"Scotland has 15,000 police, 750 of whom are armed. In crimes where a gun is reported to have been used, they routinely deploy some of these armed police as 'backup'."

"Backup? So it is the job of the other police to do what ... confront an armed perp while they're unarmed ..." ...

"The centre in Regina can train 1,200 cadets a year, but the force needs at least 1,400 new recruits annually for the next four years, the report says."

"She also said the force often doesn't adequately fill in for Mounties who are on long-term absences, overburdening their colleagues and leaving them exposed to dangerous situations without access to backup." ...

"But Englund stayed calm, patiently tracking the animal on the first day of gun deer season."

The station, located on U.S. Highway 2 east of Havre, is the only location in Region 6 that collects biological data from hunters. Biologists determine the age and sex of deer, elk, antelope as well as waterfowl and upland game birds." ...

"Price, of South Whitehall Township, overslept Monday morning and didn't arrive at his hunting location on State Game Lands 141 in Carbon County until 7:30 a.m. — more than an hour after legal shooting hours began."

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game says that all of the nonresident deer tags have been sold out for the season.

10,900 tags were available to nonresidents.

Idaho residents may still buy tags, though most rifle seasons in the south are over for the year.

Whitetail deer hunting is still open, mostly in the northern part of the state.
