"The membership of the National Rifle Association is 4 million and it is rare to hear a hunter or competitive shooter make strong statements against the organization."

"That's because the NRA is viewed as the uncompromising, stalwart, shooters' rights defender."

"So when Ray Schoenke, former Washington Redskins football player, a lifelong gun owner and an avid hunter says, 'They don't speak for me,' it is an attention-getter."

"Schoenke and his partners appeared at a national outdoor writers convention in Lake Charles, La., recently to muster awareness and support for the new American Hunters & Shooters Association, billed as an alternative to the NRA." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Charges will not be filed against a man who shot and killed his neighbor's dog Thursday morning.

East Ridge police tell us two English Bulldogs jumped their fence and attacked the man's dog on Cedar Glenn Circle.

Officers say the man saw the attack, got his gun and fired into the ground.

One of the Bulldogs ran away, but the other went after the shooter.

Police say the man shot the dog in self defense, so no charges will be filed.

The owner of the Bulldogs will not be charged either, since police say the dogs were confined.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

An Omaha teen was sentenced Tuesday to 8 to 15 years in connection with an attempted robbery that went awry.

Brandon Bowie, 18, pleaded no contest in August to one count of attempted robbery and one count of use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.

Under the terms of Tuesday's sentencing, Bowie does not have to report to prison until Dec. 4.

Bowie was paralyzed after he and a friend, Kendall Tealer, were shot during the Nov. 29, 2005, attempted robbery of a Benson neighborhood pawnshop, Omaha police have said.

Tealer died shortly after being shot, authorities said.

In December, Douglas County Attorney Stu Dornan said store owner Ken Blankenship acted in self-defense when he fired six shots at the youths as they pointed guns at him.

"As an 11-year resident of Cherry Tree, Henry Statkowski is quick to describe the Indiana County borough as a quiet, peaceful and friendly place to live." ...

"But in his role as an elected official, the 59-year-old Statkowski is advocating a controversial idea in which the borough would recommend that the 'heads of households' maintain a firearm for protection and receive appropriate training on how to use it."

"'Are there a lot of folks in town that aren't aware that they have a legal right to own a gun?' asked Peter Hamm, the communications director for the Washington, D.C.-based Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence." ...

"From the beginning, after he was charged with the 1992 sexual assault and robbery ... Marlon Pendleton said he was innocent and demanded DNA testing of the evidence."

"After Chicago police crime lab analyst Pamela Fish reported there was insufficient evidence for DNA testing, Pendleton was convicted ... and sentenced to 20 years in prison."

"On Wednesday, Pendleton's lawyers learned that DNA tests performed this month excluded him as the source of the genetic evidence left by the rapist." ...

"The DNA exclusion raises serious questions about the analysis of the evidence at the time of the crime by Fish, whose work has been linked to several wrongful convictions. ..." ...

"Griffin said he acted in self-defense by hanging on to his gun and pushing her as he tried to leave the Hays County home she shared with her 18-year-old daughter." ...

"A 13-year veteran of the Indiana State Police is facing theft charges after an investigation into a tip that he sold police ammunition to an Evansville gun shop."

"Senior trooper Matt Dillon turned himself in at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He is charged with a Class D felony for theft."

"That money was then deposited into Dillon's bank account, the news release said." ...

"POLICE said they expected to arrest a man with illegal drugs when they forced open the front door of a house in a crime-ridden neighbourhood of Atlanta."

"Instead, they found a 92-year-old woman holding a revolver."

"Kathryn Johnston ... was killed and three narcotics police were hit in the face, chest, arm and legs in the following moments." ...

"[Fulton County district attorney, Paul Howard] said the officers returned in the evening to execute a "no-knock" warrant, used when officers believe a suspect may hide evidence or escape if given time to answer the door. ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: That's odd. According to this story "Assistant Chief Alan Dreher said the officers had a legal warrant and 'knocked and announced' before they forced open the door." So which is it?

"Kansans so far aren't flocking to get permits to carry concealed guns like supporters had anticipated when the law was put on the books earlier this year. But they say the numbers may pick up before the end of the year."

So far, the attorney general's office has received nearly 3,600 applicants for gun permits under the law enacted this year at the rate of about 40 a day, said Chuck Sexson, director of the Concealed Carry Handgun Licensing Unit in the attorney general's office."

"He said about 2,600 permits have been approved and rest are going through the approval process, adding that none have been rejected." ...
 

Canada: Self-defence killings can be murky legal territory, lawyers say

"Deciding whether a city man acted in self-defence when he killed a would-be rapist and robber won’t be an easy task for the Crown, legal experts say."

"Several defence lawyers interviewed by the Sun said determining if a homicide is justified isn’t a simple question."

"Issues such as excessive force and whether the killer had an opportunity to flee will have to be considered, said Jim Lutz, who successfully used the defence in a murder case four years ago."

"'You don’t always have to retreat ... that’s what makes it so complicated,' Lutz said."

"'It's more politically astute to let the courts decide it.'"

"But prominent criminal lawyer Alain Hepner said the Crown can't simply skirt its responsibility by leaving it up to a judge, or jury." ...
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them... — Thomas Paine, I Writings of Thomas Paine at 56 (1894).
