"AUSTRALIANS must learn from America's unhealthy worship of guns by significantly reducing firearm ownership, Prime Minister John Howard said yesterday."

"He said it was ludicrous for the average citizen to own a gun if they weren't a legitimate sporting shooter, or in the police or security forces."

" 'Other than that you don't need a handgun, and I think most people would agree with that,' Mr Howard said." ...

Some people might agree that Mr. Howard doesn't need his head, too -- but that doesn't mean it's right to remove it by force... does it?

"But Glen Chapman said he turned down the rifle-modification project Muhammad proposed."

" 'My conversation with this clown was about 15 minutes,' said Chapman, 71, who has been in the gun-repair business for about half a century."

"And he said there was no discussion about a silencer... Silencers are illegal."

" 'Anybody that mentions a silencer in my shop gets thrown out immediately,' Chapman told The Bellingham Herald on Monday, speaking from his shop near Ferndale." ...

RESPONSE...

The virtual ban (near-extinctive regulatory infringement) on so-called "silencers" -- which are really only sound suppressors -- should be lifted. The complaints about noise at many shooting ranges could be greatly curtailed, the danger of hearing loss or damage could be dramatically reduced... and everyone should experience and would appreciate the smooth rock of a handgun's action as the loudest noise in the vicinity.

If government can have easy access to sound suppressors, so should The People -- and at the same price, fair market value.

"A huge, expensive firearm 'fingerprint' database would need to include information about individuals who have never committed any crime; it would not just contain information on firearms."

More anti-gun hysterics...
-------
"The National Coalition for Gun Control renewed yesterday its call for a ban on the sport of combat shooting ahead of this week's gathering of state and territory police ministers in Darwin."

"Coalition chairman Roland Browne called on the ministers to put an end to the game, where participants use semi-automatic handguns in simulated environments such as bank robberies and carjackings."

"Its elaborate 'courses of fire', featuring names such as 'carjacked by gang members', 'helicopter raid' and 'save the bank' were inappropriate for Australians to participate in, he said."

" 'We should ban this sport which simply glamorises violence and legitimises the dangerous fantasies of some men.' "

" 'Firstly, it practises shooters of self-defence in combat situations when you're not allowed to carry a gun for self-defence in Australia any more.' " [Unless you are a government employee, a very wealthy person or a person with strong political connections, that is.]

" 'And secondly, it promotes the culture of gun violence and reliance on guns in these sorts of fantasy scenario situations.' " ...

"Kahl, 43, a federal prisoner serving a life sentence at Leavenworth Penitentiary in Kansas, has spent much of the past 19 years in prison collecting evidence of his innocence."

"In the early 1980s, Kahl was convicted of killing a U.S. marshal following a roadside shoot-out involving local, state and federal law enforcement. Kahls’ father, Gordon, had been the target of the operation."

"Witnesses refute the government’s case, arguing that Kahl had been shot at least four times in the stomach by police, was unconscious and could not have killed anyone." ...

MADERA, CA -- "The parents of a man shot and killed by a police officer while sitting handcuffed in a police car have filed a $10 million claim against the city."

" 'What happened in this case is incredibly egregious,' said attorney Arturo Gonzalez, who represented the family of 11-year-old Alberto Sepulveda of Modesto, who was accidentally shot and killed by police during a drug raid in September 2000."

"In Maria and Melchor Torres' claim letter filed Monday, the couple accuses officer Marcy Noriega and other officers of using excessive and unreasonable force when dealing with their son while breaking up a party Oct. 27."

"Noriega accidentally pulled out her handgun instead of her Taser and shot Torres in the chest to stop Torres from kicking out the police car's rear window, Interim Police Chief Steve Frazier said."

"Torres, 24, had been booked on suspicion of resisting arrest, police said." ...
-------
Execution, for resisting arrest, is a bit unfair -- unless you're on a police force that's known to shoot a little kid in the back while playing "drug warrior". At least this guy was older than 11 and had actually (allegedly) done something wrong, sort of, right?

"Despite the toll that guns in the wrong hands are taking, there is tremendous resistance to even modest efforts to control the spread of guns. That resistance is led, as usual, by the National Rifle Association. It opposes creation of a national, computerized system for tracing bullets and shell tracings to the guns that fired them, a crime-fighting tool that has come to be known as ballistic fingerprinting. All law-enforcement organizations want it." ...

Lying, to Leftist anti-gun fanatics, sure comes easy. A major national law enforcement organization has balked at firearms registration, misnamed "ballistics fingerprinting."

U.S. brings charges in two drugs-for-weapons terrorism plots

"U.S. officials announced charges Wednesday involving alleged plots to sell drugs to finance weapons purchases for Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida organization and a Colombian paramilitary group."

"The separate cases show the threat to national security from the 'toxic combination of drugs and terrorism,' Attorney General John Ashcroft said."

"One set of charges involves a plot by four people, two of them Houston-based, to trade $25 million in cocaine and cash for a huge cache of weapons to be sent to the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, or AUC, as the 8,000-member paramilitary group is known by its initials in Spanish."

"U.S. authorities said the four suspects believed they were going to trade the money and cocaine for 9,000 AK-47s and other assault rifles; grenade launchers and nearly 300,000 grenades; 300 pistols; shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles and about 53 million rounds of ammunition." ...

"Two suspects were identified as Uwe Jensen, 66, and Carlos Ali Romero Varela, 43, both of Houston. There was less detail on two others: Carlos Lopez and an individual identified only as 'Commandant Emilio'."

"His girlfriend, Janet Blurton, of Whitegates, Codnor, told Derby Coroner's Court yesterday how she had called police to her home after Mr Dickson had threatened to torch the building and threatened her with a carving knife."

"I thought he was going to kill me," she said. "He said that he was going to burn the house down. He said that he would never leave me." ...

"The inquest heard that when PCs Robert Scott and Thomas Bennett attended the house, they convinced Mr Dickson to leave the property but they did not arrest him because they were unaware that a knife had been involved in the row."

"But when they passed the house again minutes later, Mr Dickson had returned with the gun." ...

-------
"The Hattiesburg City Council has decided to destroy 51 guns seized by police rather than auctioning them off."

"Councilwoman Deborah Denard suggested changing the tradition of auctioning the weapons to a policy of destroying them at a council meeting Monday."

"Police Chief David Wynn said the proceeds from an auction could bring as much as $10,000 to his department. He said the weapons, seized during crimes, are only sold to licensed dealers."

"The City Council agreed to fill the gap by allocating $10,000 to the police department during its next round of budget amendments."

"Wynn said the funds will be used to purchase shotguns for the police department."

Assuming that none of these firearms were stolen -- or, if they were, that their rightful owners could not be located -- this is still a waste of perfectly good firearms. Some law-abiding, impoverished elderly woman nearby might need one for self-defense.

"A grand jury has indicted 29 airport workers on charges they hid their criminal histories or gave false Social Security numbers when they applied for security badges, prosecutors said Tuesday."

"After Sept. 11, federal authorities examined the records of nearly 15,000 employees at the Philadelphia International Airport."

"The inspection found 17 current or former workers who didn't disclose convictions for crimes including weapons offenses, drug possession and theft, prosecutors said."

"Among those arrested was a baggage handler who had two guns in his home. Prosecutors said the guns belonged to a pair of law enforcement officers who reported them stolen from their bags."

"Also, 12 food service workers were charged with using false Social Security numbers, prosecutors said."

"Twelve of those indicted were arrested Tuesday; the baggage handler was taken into custody last week. The remaining defendants were still at large, prosecutors said."

"Two police officers acted correctly when they subdued an 81-year-old nursing home patient with a chemical spray and bean bags fired from a shotgun, a department review has found."

"Willie Foster, 81, was shot four times with bean bags after he became unruly and nursing-home staff called officers on Aug. 27."

"Foster, who was in wheelchair and has a pacemaker, was holding a small vase over his head and threatening the staff and the officers, according to the review released Tuesday."

"Police Chief Cliff Diamond said the use of force was 'within the parameters.' He acknowledged, however, that 'there isn't anything in the book that says what you should do when you encounter someone this old.' "

"Felicia Kennedy, Foster's daughter, said police had other options."

" 'They could have talked to him. They could have thrown a sheet over him,' Kennedy said. 'It could have been done another way. There were other preventive ways.' "

"Foster, 5 feet 11 inches tall and about 190 pounds, was hit with bean bags three times in the arm and once in the chest when he refused to drop the vase, the report said. Officers took him to the floor and handcuffed him after spraying him in the face with chemical spray."
