Fifty-caliber rifles are big, heavy guns, weighing at least 30 pounds and using a 29-inch barrel. They are also relatively expensive. Models that hold one bullet at a time run nearly $3,000. Semi-automatic versions cost around $7,000. They are purchased by wealthy target shooters and big-game hunters.

Needless to say, they are not in much demand by criminals. Indeed, during the decades these guns have been made, not one has ever been implicated in a murder or a wounding in the United States.

"the goal of the academy is to build a better relationship between the community and the Asheville Police Department. Participants of the police academy, who are all over 21, are eligible to complete the advanced citizen’s police academy, which is mostly "hands-on" activities, Bell said. She said the free academy is designed to break down any pre-conceived ideas people may have about police officers and their work, and it allows them to interact with officers without being a victim."

"Americans may have to consider ideas as foreign as truth serums and torture warrants when thinking about striking a balance between liberty and security after the terrorist attacks Sept. 11."

That was the message celebrity lawyer and civil libertarian Alan M. Dershowitz delivered to a crowd packed into a gymnasium Sunday at the Jewish Community Center in Creve Coeur. Dershowitz was the opening speaker for the Jewish Book Fair.

Kellianne Harper decided to conquer her fears. So last month she began tae kwon do classes. "...by golly, I am going to do what it takes to protect my family."

However, Donald Sheldon says, "taking self-defense classes may make people feel better, but in reality it wouldn't be of much benefit against an organized band of hijackers." ... "The only way you're going to be able to defeat them is to respond immediately and with greater force."

Violent crime has spiked dramatically in Washington since the Sept. 11 attacks, with the homicide rate jumping by more than a third, but city officials disagree on whether the increase occurred because local police officers have been diverted to help with other security duties.

Despite an outpouring of protests from the general membership that began in mid-August, directors of the National Rifle Association endorsed the controversial Conservation and Reinvestment Act, or CARA, at their annual board meeting. The endorsement, however, which is in the form of a "statement of policy" that defines the limits to which the NRA is committed to CARA, falls far short of what promoters of the bill had hoped for.

"Mayor Joseph Ganim kept a controversial, $1 million life insurance policy for nearly a year after he claimed to have canceled it, the Connecticut Post reported Sunday.

The Post earlier this year reported that Ganim secretly spent $821,000 of the city's money to buy $2.6 million worth of life insurance for himself and five other top city officials."

Ganim initiated one of the many municipal lawsuits against gunmakers.

Some more details about the federal indictment of anti-gun Mayor Ganim, and the life insurance he purchased with city funds.

"Earlier this year, after the Connecticut Post asked questions about the life insurance policy, Ganim produced a letter, dated June 17, 1999, in which he tells the Hartford to drop his policy."

He never sent the letter.

Handgun Control Group Devotes Largest Billboard To Honoring Terror Victims -- For the first time since it went up in 1995, the nation's largest billboard has changed its tune.

Until today, the 252-foot-long, 20-foot-high landmark sign along the Massachusetts Turnpike, not far from Boston's Fenway Park, had been devoted to messages opposing handgun violence. But in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, owner John Rosenthal decided it was time to broaden the focus of the billboard from child victims of firearms to victims of terrorism, young and old.

FOR THE umpteenth time, a national study has found that gun control laws don’t work. The verification of this fact is getting to be one of life’s predictable occurrences, like the migration of monarch butterflies or the late-season choking of the Boston Red Sox.

Agüero's story seemed airtight after a gun turned up in some bushes near the shooting.

Only one little problem: The gun didn't belong to the suspect. It had been seized in an earlier drug raid conducted by Agüero himself and other officers.

"To say, 'We'll pass the Brady law, or the so-called 'assault-weapons' ban and we're going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals,' is just ludicrous," he said. "You're not going to stop a person who's intent on committing a crime from committing that crime just by passing a law."

A national leader of the militia movement has been killed and an Apache County sheriff's deputy wounded in a shootout. William Milton Cooper hosted a talk show broadcast on the Worldwide Christian Radio.

Gov. John Kitzhaber is voicing doubts about the local sheriff's plan to set up an armed volunteer civil defense force to deter terrorist attacks on sensitive facilities.

Because the proposal calls for volunteers to carry firearms, Clatsop County Sheriff John Raichl's defense force appears to amount to a kind of militia, according Steve Marks, the governor's chief of staff.
