1,900 Utah National Guard members will be activated for security at the Winter Olympics, with assistance from 1,200 Guard members from 13 states.

Troops have 3 main missions: screening vehicles and visitors; perimeter guard duty; and as a rapid deployment force in case of a crisis.

The troops screening visitors at venue entrances likely won't be armed, Tarbet said. Those standing guard duty along the fences may carry guns, at the discretion of police departments at each venue.

This bill would require gun makers to RECALL all weapons without integrated safety locks.

Check out this tech website poll, and the respondents' comments; one of the two questions is about a national ID card. It's interesting to see how many people quoted Ben Franklin.

"Changes lift the requirement to use a nightstick before a gun. Police can also fire without warning when circumstances are so urgent and dangerous as to demand immediate action."

"Police need to try harder to see that public safety is protected through proper exercise of their law-enforcement authority, and to see that fewer officers are killed in the line of duty."

The latest victim of victimless crime laws: Gerard Warren parked his Chevrolet Suburban in the Strip District. When police searched it, they found a Glock .45 locked in the center console.

"Unfortunately for Warren...he didn't have a license or permit to own the gun. Warren was charged with a felony even though he wasn't threatening anybody. Do you really feel safer today?" Dimitri Vassilaros
