"It’s ridiculous, but it does show the divide between hoplophobes, that is, those with an irrational fear of weapons, and those of us who responsibly own, use and enjoy firearms, and who raise our children with our values."

"It’s also ridiculous because this is one isolated complaint. Any wider 'controversy' has been entirely manufactured by the 'Authorized Journalists' at KCRA."

Submitter's Note: Also make the first in a series of New Year's resolutions.

Carroll County Attorney sets new psychic standard for criminal trespass:

"If you have someone unarmed coming to his property and he knows it, that's what put it over the edge for us," said Carroll County Attorney Robin Gordon, the person who decided to prosecute Bird on the felony criminal threatening charge.

"She wasn't there with any intent to do him harm and do anything about his property," Gordon said Saturday. Bird later rejected an offer to plead to a lesser misdemeanor offense.

"He certainly should have some penalty for that kind of crazy behavior," Gordon said.

"Sold what?"

"Old fleet vehicles. We rotated a 1996 Chevy Malibu with 180,000 miles on it out of our fleet back in 2008."

"Mr. Cooper, I just came home from my son's funeral. Would you please tell me what this is all about?"

"That's why I'm calling. If the City Council had listened to me and destroyed the old vehicles instead of selling them, your son wouldn't have been hit by that old Malibu. He'd still be alive today."

It sounds like a futuristic weapon from a sci-fi video game.

But a supergun that can destroy a target 100 miles away was officially branded the most powerful in the world after tests at a U.S. Navy firing range.

The electromagnetic railgun is a hi-tech cannon that sends a 20lbs bullet rocketing through the air at seven times the speed of sound.

TX: Want to carry bigger blades? Texas is prime candidate for knife law reform

In Texas, it's a misdemeanor offense to carry an illegal knife, which includes daggers, Bowie knives, swords, spears, throwing stars and any knife with a blade over 5 1/2 inches. Switchblade knives are illegal not only to carry, but to possess, sell or make.

But that could change if knife rights lobbyists - who've had major victories making knife laws less strict in New Hampshire and Arizona this year - roll back some the state's provisions they claim are out-dated and arbitrary.

The Tobago East MP mooted whether or not there should be a universal right to bear firearms.

“I am considering whether the time has come for all of us to carry firearms,” she said. “Since I have been on this job they have asked me if I want to carry firearms.” She lamented that crime has become so bad that Port-of-Spain Mayor Louis Lee Sing has resorted to calling for a ban on alcohol after midnight.

“This should never be. A person should be free to enjoy the right to safety of person and freedom to drink what they want. There are many people whose livelihoods are served by those places,” she said. She said investment is down, “and part of the reason is criminal activity.”

The right to bear arms has not fared much better. The first people targeted (other than blacks) were the poor – “The core of the National Firearms Act was the price people were expected to pay. In order to register a shotgun, payment of $200 was required ... equal to $3,056.11 at today’s values.”

There are 3,800 gun retailers in Texas, 300 in Houston alone.

"One of the reasons that Houston is the number one source, you can go to a different gun store for a month and never hit the same gun store," said J. Dewey Webb, special agent in charge of the Houston field division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. "You can buy [a 9mm handgun] down along the border, but if you come to Houston, you can probably buy it cheaper because there's more dealers, there's more competition."

Yesterday, two Brownsville churches held "cash for guns" trade-in events in an attempt to get guns off the street. Working handguns could be traded for a $200 bank card, and a working rifle or shotgun was worth a $20 card, no questions asked. At the end of the day, the NYPD had bought a total of 174 guns, including 60 semiautomatic weapons, 72 revolvers, 19 rifles, five shotguns and one sawed-off shotgun, as well as a few "improvised" firearms.

Police commissioner Howard Broad has recommended frontline officers have greater access to guns kept in lockboxes in patrol cars.

Mr Broad presented a draft report to Police Minister Judith Collins this afternoon and the pair discussed his advice.

The debate about arming police was re-ignited this weekend after Senior Constable Bruce Mellor suffered a fractured skull, a broken eye socket and jaw and broken front teeth, and horrific multiple slashes after a machete attack.

Ed.: The cops want to be able to defend themselves from crooks; bet they don't want the citizens to have the same ability.
