The Ukrainian Government has responded to a wave of attacks on journalists over the last 15 months by allowing them to carry guns that fire rubber bullets.

But some journalists say the measure is worse than useless. "Rubber bullets can never save a reporter's life, not even one," said the head of a regional association of journalists in the southern Crimea peninsula, one of the country's most violent regions.

The rush for arms that swept California after Sept. 11 has waned, and the pace of firearms sales has returned to a level that could make 2001 the slowest year on record.

The East Coast attacks brought an immediate 50% jump in weekly firearms sales, but the flurry was short-lived. Sales peaked the week of Sept. 17, then slid steadily before rising last week, the start of the holiday gun-buying season.

DUNCAN, OK - "The Sentinels assist us in a variety of ways," [Police Chief Ronnie] Ward said. "They're not pistol-packers, nor do they carry a badge. But they can do a lot of things that would normally consume a lot of our time. What they do is free up our police officers to handle more pressing jobs."

Oklahoma is strictly enforcing school zero-tolerance policies, but the efforts may be doing more harm than good, a study released Wednesday by the Oklahoma Council on Violence Prevention said.

"We could find no evidence that zero tolerance had made any difference in the level of severity of violence in schools," [Jeff] Hamilton said. "In fact, the research indicated that there were unintended effects that had a very negative impact."

Man runs in, waving gun. You:

a) comply and cross your fingers,

b) chuckle at how that gun you didn't buy seems so reasonably priced now,

c) kiss the wife and kids when you go home. [KABA NOTE: After shooting the criminal in self-defense]

This criminal demanded cigs, then shot the guy when he turned to get them! Then he runs away without his booty!

How much is YOUR life worth today?

Thomas sat down at his computer and, despite disabling pain in his back and hips, in one sitting over several hours he cranked out a no-fear dispatch to the American people. Like him, it was nothing fancy...

In his back yard, Thomas built a pellet gun range where he helps Boy Scouts earn merit badges in marksmanship. "When I'm shooting it's the only time I ever really manage to lose the pain," says Thomas. "Shooting's my last link to the man I used to be."

The gun-control movement is driven by raw emotion. Facts are irrelevant. Logic is spurned. Utter nonsense is solemnly intoned. It's little wonder that our most emotive president has made gun control his signature domestic issue. Don Feder
