A man whose son was critically injured in a random New Year's Eve shooting joined city officials Wednesday in urging an end to the tradition of firing off weapons to ring in a new year.

"It's a totally absurd tradition," said Gregory Jaskolka, whose son Joseph was injured three years ago.

Jaskoklka was among several antigun advocates who helped launch this year's campaign against gunfire revelry.

Police are distributing more than 500 posters to businesses, shopping centers and sports and entertainment venues to warn New Year's revelers of the dangers of random gunfire.

Since the early 1990s, Dallas police have tried to educate residents about the dangers of firing guns to celebrate the New Year's arrival...

Many people believe that firing a gun into the air is safe because they aren't aiming at a person or thing, but the practice can have deadly results, police said.
 

SC: Guns, beer, fun mix at turkey shoots

The Friday night turkey shoot at Gertie's Private Lounge in Edmund is one of those events your mama warned you to avoid.

It's long-necked beer bottles and long-barrel rifles. It's plenty of profanity and no prohibitions. In a roundabout way, it's gambling and grocery shopping simultaneously.

It's also a blast, which explains why dozens of people gather outside the honky-tonk on S.C.302 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights in November and December.

"However, these same statistics have blown apart the toxic mumblings of the antifirearm and victimdisarmament brigade."

"How do they explain the reduction in violent crime when in the same period there was an increase of 64% in licensed firearms? The Firearms Control Act has not been implemented (now scheduled for 2003), and cannot be included in any equation."

After speaking with the process servers, police determined that the incident did not meet the standard for assault – S2 because the gun was not pointed at the man who went to the door – and decided to leave the area.

“There was no assault with a weapon, and we’re not going to make a big issue over a land (deed),” said police Sgt. Ken Dove. “It’s called picking your battles.”

The family of slain Columbine student Daniel Rohrbough claims a Denver police officer killed the boy as he fled the massacre inside the school.

A motion filed Wednesday in federal court said Sgt. Dan O'Shea, a member of the SWAT team during the April 20, 1999, shootings, was identified through testimony by a school administrator, Celine Marquez, who said O'Shea told her two days after the shooting that he feared he may have shot an innocent student.

Trial lawyers in criminal cases often ask prospective jurors if they - or a family member - have been arrested or have been a crime victim to see if that experience might taint their decision-making.

Judge Robert Ruehlman, who soon will rule in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court on whether Ohio's concealed weapons law is unconstitutional, had just such an experience - his wife and baby were kidnapped at gunpoint 12 years ago.

"Thr United Nations quashed an investigation earlier this year into whether UN police were directly involved in the enslavement of Eastern European women in Bosnian brothels, according to UN officials and internal documents."

"Within weeks, Lamb said, his inquiry found enough evidence to justify a full-scale criminal investigation." " But Lamb said they faced physical threats and that he found ‘‘a real reluctance’’ on the part of the UN leadership to investigate these allegations."

The IDF is undergoing trials of a new assault rifle that may replace the American-made M-16. The new weapon, called the Tavor, is manufactured by TAAS-Israel Industries. The IDF is also testing the American-made M-4, the successor to the M-16. If the Tavor is selected, TAAS will probably produce the weapon under license in the United States.

I honestly don't intend to sound heartless and cruel, but I admit I had to choose between sending this to KABA or submitting it to the folks at the Darwin Awards.

Two young men bird hunting at a State Park decided to have a "mock duel" with their loaded shotguns.

I know kids do dumb things, but...sheesh.
 

SC: Self-defense, Gun Ownership, and Homeland Security

In South Carolina, more than 40,000 citizens have taken the time and expense to obtain CCW permits. Since these permits became readily available, SLED has reported no serious problems. While it is obvious that permit holders are good citizens, the law places many restrictions on when and where they may carry guns. With so many responsible gun owners trained and available to help, shouldn't we be finding ways to encourage, rather than discourage, their participation in homeland defense?
