"Chicago authorities foiled an armed robbery early Friday only to find that two of the robbers were law-enforcement officers from the south suburbs, police said."

"A Ford Heights police officer and a Harvey deputy marshal each were charged with six counts of armed robbery late Friday after they and two others were accused of taking money at gunpoint from suspected drug dealers on the West Side."

"The four men had been working for Gold Star Security at an event on the West Side that ended early, Lawrence said. The men were sent home without pay and decided to rob some people to make up for the lost wages, according to statements that two of the suspects gave police, authorities said."

"An intruder got more than he bargained for in north suburban Wilmette late Monday when a resident shot him twice before he hastily exited the front window of an upscale home." ...

"Police declined to name the homeowner, whom Ockrim described as a 54-year-old man home with his wife and two children."

"The village of Wilmette has an ordinance that bans the ownership of handguns. Ockrim said that he did not know if the resident would be charged with any violations."

-------
What a shame that this man will likely be charged with a crime for defending his life and his family, because the city "authorities" saw it fit to ban self-defense as a human right.

"A Brooklyn man celebrated his 34th birthday in a jail cell after he used an illegal gun to blow away an intruder he said was trying to rob his apartment - where cops found a pound of pot, authorities said."

"Sheldon Barrow used the .40-caliber gun to kill Fisher Canton inside his apartment the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office said yesterday."

"Prosecutors said they were continuing their investigation into the Sunday-evening shooting to determine if the slaying was self-defense or whether Barrow should face more serious charges."

If the case is ruled a homicide, Canton's death would be the 586th murder recorded this year, compared to 584 slayings last year.

"A Brooklyn man blew away an intruder who broke into his apartment yesterday in an apparent robbery attempt, authorities said."

"The would-be crook broke into the first-floor apartment at 600 E. 16th St. in Flatbush at around 6:45 p.m., and ran into the tenant in the bedroom, police sources said."

"That's when the intruder pulled out a fake gun - and the resident responded by shooting him one time in the face with a real 9mm handgun."

"The burglar was pronounced dead at the scene." ...

"It was not clear whether he had a permit for the gun, but he was not immediately charged."

"Tim Bueler recently received some unusual advice: His principal and a campus police officer suggested that he stay home from his California high school for a few days."

"They feared for his safety because Tim, the founder of Rancho Cotate High School's new Conservative Club, said he had received threats from other students after writing an article for the club newsletter calling for a crackdown on illegal immigration."

"The 17-year-old junior says that stance inspired threats from which teachers have refused to protect him. Some faculty members even started a public campaign against his group..."

Maybe "zero tolerance" only applies to indulgence toward socialist tyranny. But threatening conservatives and those who won't toe the liberal line is apparently OK.
 

Corruption in high court ruling makes correction imperative

"The Supreme Court says that it is corruption in American politics that gives it the right to take away rights — to tell people what they can and cannot say on TV as an election draws close, for instance."

"The ruling on campaign finance law shows the court itself suffers from a form of corruption and raises the question of whether Americans should feel themselves bound by this abuse of power."

"The court's integrity and legitimacy, after all, rest to a large degree on whether justices are making an honest effort to interpret the meaning of the Constitution. But in this ruling, a majority seemed engaged instead in ideologically biased philosophizing, with scarcely a glance over the shoulder at what it might mean to guarantee such a proclaimed right as free speech."

"I wasn't prepared, however, for the TSA to stop me right at the entrance, proclaiming that no small pets, including fish, were permitted through security. I had, however, just received the blessing of the ticket agents at US Airways and pre-assured MJ's travels with Pittsburgh International Airport security weeks before our travel date. I tried to explain this to the screener who stood between me and the gates, but she would have none of it."

"I was led back to the US Airways ticket counter, stocking-footed and alone, where the agents reasserted that they did not see a problem for me to have a fish on board, properly packaged in plastic fish bag and secured with a rubber band as MJ was. But the TSA supervisor was called over, and he berated me profusely. He exclaimed that in no way, under no circumstances, was a small fish allowed to pass through security, regardless of what the ticket agents said."

"Security officials shut down part of San Antonio International Airport after traces of a cleaning solution on a piece of luggage were mistaken for the explosive TNT.
One of the airport's two terminals was closed for 30 minutes Monday after the checked baggage tested positive for the explosive, said airport spokeswoman Lisa Burkhardt-Worley."

"The bag was removed for further testing and its owner was taken into airport custody, she said."

"Transportation Security Administration officials scoured the terminal and plane, but it turned out that the suspected TNT, or trinitrotoluene, was nothing more than his mother's cleaner."

"The gentleman's mother apparently owns a cleaning business, and the chemicals used in one of the cleaners is similar to the chemical makeup of TNT, so that's why the elements set off the explosive detection machine..."

When it comes to homicide, the same sad story plays out in Salinas -- year after year.

A gangster shoots. Another young Latino man is dead.

2003 was no different. Of the 18 people slain in the city, three were juveniles, and 11 were in their 20s.

At least 11 of the killings were gang-related, while two others were possibly linked to gangs, police said. "Gang-related" can mean that the killer and victim were both gang members or it can mean that only the killer was in a gang.

Firearms were used in 13 of the killings.

So gang-banging thugs are killing each other and the VPC and Brady will still call them "children".
 

Blame gun dealers, not manufacturers

"Unscrupulous dealers may be to blame in part for the city's murder rate, but it makes no sense to indict an entire industry."

"A bill pending in Congress could make the Gary court case irrelevant. Legislation that would protect companies that make, import or sell guns from civil claims filed by shooting victims has passed the House and appears headed for approval in the Senate."

"Unfortunately, the bill goes too far in protecting dealers as well as manufacturers. The nation is confronted with two extremes on this issue. Congress is on the verge of exempting the industry from lawsuits; cities like Gary, meanwhile, are targeting manufacturers as well as dealers. A middle ground is desperately needed."

"Bao, like many members of San Jose's Vietnamese American community, was profoundly touched by the shooting death of Cau Bich Tran by a San Jose police officer. Bao's initial reaction that day was shock, then anger. Now, five months later, he wants to change the system by running for public office." ...

"Tran's death and a grand jury's refusal to indict Officer Chad Marshall galvanized the area's Vietnamese Americans to action like nothing else in their nearly 30-year history in San Jose. At the same time, among some, it has revived a mistrust of police and authority figures that was born of fear caused by Vietnam's communist government."

" 'People are afraid to call the police,' said Bao. 'They're nervous and distrustful.' " ...

"Tran, 25, was killed after a neighbor called the police over concerns about Tran's toddler son playing unsupervised outside their apartment. A second call complained about a possible argument between Tran and her boyfriend, Dang Bui."

"By the time the police arrived, her two sons were inside the apartment. Marshall entered the building and saw Tran, standing in the kitchen about 7 feet to his right with a kitchen utensil in her hand. Marshall later testified that he thought she was waving a cleaver at him and that he twice instructed her to drop it. He estimated that he shot Tran within five to seven seconds of entering the apartment."

"A group of ministers on Monday urged the Illinois Senate to pass a bill aimed at closing the so-called gun-show loophole, which allows the purchase of firearms at gun shows without the otherwise required background check."

"Spurred by neighborhood killings, the Clergy for Safer Streets gathered on the West Side at St. Joseph Missionary Baptist Church, where 26-year-old choir leader Tamika McFadden-Harris was killed by gang crossfire in November 2001 as she left the church."

"The group says most guns on the street originally come from legal sales--not from "black markets" or gun smuggling--and then later are passed on to criminals."

-------
Too bad for this group of cowardly hoplophobes, the Bureau of Justice Statistics refutes their assinine claim. According to the federal government, 0.7 percent of criminals got guns at gun shows. Additionally, 8.3 percent got them via retail, 3.8 percent got them from a pawn shop and 1 percent got them from a flea market. The rest either got it from a friend or family member and via theft, burglary, drug deal or black market.

"In nominating the Keystone State solon for the Award, Snyder said that, 'Rep. Toomey is an outspoken proponent of Second Amendment rights not only in the Halls of Congress but in the public media as well. He truly is an articulate defender of our traditional rights and certainly is most deserving of this Award.' "

"Toomey, cosponsor of the proposed District of Columbia Personal Protection Act, defended the measure during a nationally-televised debate on the issue with anti-gun D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton. The two squared off in October during an edition of 'Hardball with Chris Matthews' on MSNBC."

"The bill would allow law-abiding citizens in Washington, D.C. to possess handguns and rifles in their homes and businesses by repealing the registration requirements for firearms and ammunition, and by eliminating criminal penalties for the possession and carrying of firearms in homes and businesses. Its chief sponsor, Rep. Mark E. Souder of Indiana, is a previous CCRKBA Gun Rights Defender of the Month."

Police have appealed for help to hunt down three balaclava-clad men armed with a pistol who robbed a western Sydney workshop.

At around 1.30am (AEDT) the men entered the workshop at Brabham Drive, Eastern Creek, held up the three workers they found there and unsuccessfully attempted to force open a safe.

After about an hour the robbers stole money from a vending machine, the personal belongings and car keys of two of the victims, then used one victim's car to flee the scene.

The vehicle was found later in a nearby street, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Blacktown detectives on 9671 9199 or CrimeStoppers on 1800 333000.

"Opposition critic Garry Breitkreuz's latest attack on Canada's gun-control law recycles the same old arguments without regard for the facts."

"By most standards, Canada's gun-control program is a success: More than 2 million firearm owners (90 per cent) are now licensed and almost 7 million firearms (85 per cent) are registered."

"Police officers use the system more than 1,500 times a day and report many cases where the system has allowed them to remove guns from people who were a risk to themselves or others."

-------
So registration is working perfectly. It is allowing the government to remove guns from "undesireables". This year it's people who are a risk to themselves or others." Next year will it be Jews?

Armed raiders ambushed a security van yesterday and drove off in it, escaping with more than £1 million in cash.

The van was seized from outside a cafe in Horsham, West Sussex. A security guard was tied up and forced into the back while his female colleague was held at gunpoint in the front.

The vehicle was driven to Faygate where the cash was transferred to a waiting car. The two security guards, who were uninjured, raised the alarm after the raiders left.

Sussex Police used a helicopter to try to trace the bandits while Securicor offered a £100,000 reward for information leading to their arrest and conviction.

A police spokesman said the guards were confronted by a man with a firearm who forced the male guard into the back and his female colleague into the front.

"Perhaps so many people are caught up in the fate of Middle Earth because they recognize, even if only subconsciously, some kind of a parallel to our own reality. After all, there most certainly is something bad in a not-so-distant place, something that is seeking to curtail more more and more of our freedoms, something that is gaining more power and authority over all of us almost daily. If that power continues to grow apace, and gather more and more agents in its name, we literally do face the end of life as we know it and a new life that will, at best, be far less free." ...

"Airlines and pilots have protested against US plans to place armed guards on flights."

"The International Air Transport Association yesterday criticised a United States government order requiring foreign airlines to put armed guards on planes to meet terrorist threats."

" 'This is a very bad idea because it risks having catastrophic consequences on passengers and crew if there is an armed fight on board between a hijacker and an agent,' said Mr Mogens Holgaard, head of the Danish Pilots Association."

"Stray bullets could puncture the cabin pressure, cause an explosion or touch the electric wires that run the length of the aircraft and cause a short circuit and a fire."

-------
According to aviation experts, this scenario is highly unlikely. But of course, according to these panty wetters, it's safer to have terrorists fly the plane into a few buildings.

"NEWS that police in Leeds are looking for an American in their search for the man who murdered one of their colleagues on Boxing Day fits with the way that gun crime has changed over the past decade. The pattern of offences involving firearms looks more and more like that in America: random, careless shootings have replaced the carefully-planned bank robberies of old."

" 'Standards are down,' asserts Terry Smith, who carried out a string of security van robberies in 1980s London. 'Most robbers now get caught up in drugs, and they don't plan properly. The professionalism has gone.' "

But weren't gun laws supposed to stop these crimes?
