Speaking from the stature of one American male citizen of the future, I do not want these dollar coins in my pants. Here is what I am now currently storing in my pants: keys to office, cars, house, bicycle lock, girlfriend's apartment, gym locker, safety deposit box and strong box where I keep Second Amendment weapons. Also, a wallet, nose-blowing cloth, remote for car locks, flash drive for computer and nickels, dimes, quarters and pennies with presidential faces.

...

...it is often the fact that Americans are not as stupid as their government.

Police investigating a string of guns missing from luggage at O'Hare Airport have arrested a man for allegedly stealing a bag containing ammunition.

Thomas Goodman, 52, of Chicago, was charged with misdemeanor theft after plainclothes officers saw him steal the bag from a United Airlines carousel on Thanksgiving Day, said Michael Patton, the Chicago Police commander at O'Hare. Police have not tied Goodman to a string of at least 10 guns stolen from luggage since Jan. 2, Patton said.
 

CA: The Use of Force; When officers resort to gunfire

The Chronicle found a pattern in the four shootings:
-- In the moments leading to the shootings, officers used faulty tactics, needlessly placing themselves in danger, then shot their way out.
-- The department's internal investigations resulted in reports that did not mention the missteps.
-- The public did not receive a full account, and police officials may have lost opportunities to discipline or retrain officers and to improve operations to help prevent more shootings.
 

Tragic Killings Prove that Police Training Needs to Focus on More than Just Marksmanship

Sudden, unexpected death by any means is always awful for loved ones, but there’s an added tragedy when death comes unnaturally; by dint of human error, recklessness or evil; or at around the time when everyone is thinking of family, love and happiness.

Three sets of beloved have faced that perfect storm of sorrow in recent days. For each, all three circumstances converged to mark this holiday season with pain and loss most horrible.
 

Police agencies need to review raid procedures

Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney Paul Howard has said an investigation will be launched. But one of his comments concerning the tragedy is troubling. He said a preliminary review indicated that police ‘‘had a legal right’’ to search the home.

Of course they did. But that isn’t the point. The question is whether the raid could have been handled in a manner that would not have left three officers wounded — and a 92-year-old woman dead. The answer is something to which law enforcement officials everywhere should be paying attention.
 

PA: Fear of lawsuits a problem for landowners

It has been argued that video games have turned what once would have been aspiring deer hunters into couch potatoes. Animal rights zealots have come in for a share of the blame. And there are the quadrennial hallucinations by the National Rifle Association shamans that if a Democrat is elected president he or she will move to repeal the Second Amendment and strip us all of our fowling pieces.

In fact, the cause may be none of the above, but rather the judicial system that is throwing a wet blanket over an ancient and honorable sport, if an Associated Press story out of Pennsylvania is any indication.

VA: In his own words: Sen.-elect Jim Webb

The way that the legislative approach was presented to me on that issue was that in those states that allow conceal and carry, and allow . . . people who can carry concealed weapons to carry those weapons into all parks . . . in those states that have federal land, that it would be appropriate to open those up for concealed-carry. And I agree with that concept.

"The acting police commissioner will address the media following the seizure of the weapons in Nasinu which happened without there being any resistance. At Nasuva the military has failed to get into the Police Academy armoury after being told the key was in Nasinu. While soildiers are guarding the armoury, recruits outside parade on the lawn. The military's move will be explained at a news conference in two hours to be given by the military commander, Commodore Frank Bainimarama. Meanwhile the army have set up a roadblock at Sawani, about 12 kilometres from Suva, in what appears to be to a bid to stop people from reaching the capital from the interior."

Gun and knife shows, like the one held last weekend, attracts sportsmen across the Brooksville-Tampa area. That pleases Randi Rickert, president of the Hernando Sportsman’s Club.
“These shows have helped us get the property for our firing range,” he said. “The club has over 800 families. More than 1,000 people per week use the range.”

Many New Yorkers, particularly white New Yorkers, believe that much has changed in the city since the 1999 shooting of Diallo, an unarmed African immigrant killed in front of his apartment building. But what is striking about this case is what has not changed. That alone may be one of the biggest issues raised by the death of Sean Bell.

Why we love government

Unlike today's Americans, the founders of our nation were suspicious, if not contemptuous, of government. Consider just a few of their words.

In response to what Jefferson called an "elective despotism," he suggested that "The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

Could a person with similar sentiments win the presidency today? My guess is no. Today's Americans hold such liberty-oriented values in contempt, and any presidential aspirant holding them would have a zero chance of winning office.

Today's Americans hold a different vision of government. It's one that says Congress has the right to do just about anything upon which it can secure a majority vote.
 

UT: U. redirects gun fight

University of Utah leaders are taking their gun fight to the Legislature, hoping to keep at least part of the school's controversial gun ban intact.
After losing a lengthy and costly court battle, U. President Michael Young is working with legislators to find if the no-guns rule could work in limited circumstances such as in residence halls and athletic venues.

Submitter's note; typical liberal tactic. When the full-on affront to deprivation of rights fails, resort to incrementalism.

As an aside, let me thank Bruce Krafft for his diligence in providing stories for this page. Without him this page would be empty.

Last week, Mayor Robert Duffy convinced City Council to extend Rochester's curfew pilot program. The assumption is that keeping kids off the streets after 11 p.m. on weeknights and midnight on weekends can save lives. But this approach does nothing to protect young people from the bullets that are flying around city neighborhoods during the day.
 

MD: Small arms a huge problem in Iraq, worldwide

Small arms and light weapons are the primary weapons of today's conflicts, killing hundreds of thousands of people every year and injuring countless more. But the indirect costs of small-arms violence - opportunities lost because of perpetual violence and crime - affect millions more worldwide. This violence inflicts a heavy economic toll on countries engaged in or emerging from conflict, and these economic losses can impede a country's long-term viability as much as loss of human capital, making small-arms control even more of an imperative.

The catastrophic economic consequences of small-arms proliferation are evident in Iraq, which is awash in such weapons...
 

OH: Kent police wary of gun law proposal

If Gov. Bob Taft does not veto last week's revision of Ohio's concealed-carry gun law, Kent police officers might begin approaching traffic stops warily. Kent Police Capt. Jim Goodlet said Ohio's gun laws were soft enough without the revisions approved this week by state legislators. The changes to the law eliminate the requirement that drivers keep guns in plain sight. "I don't think transportation of them should be any easier," Goodlet said. "The state law should not do away with local laws."
 

NY: Technology makes muzzleloading easier

Deer hunters in New York state have one more week to pursue their trophies, unless they plan to take part in the late muzzleloader season. In fact, as muzzleloading technology improves, more and more hunters are opting to carry "smokepoles" during the regular firearm season in lieu of their slug-spitting shotguns. For many people, the concept of muzzleloading rifles conjures up images of pioneers in coonskin caps measuring black powder from a powder horn into their flintlocks. And while those classic front-loaders are still popular, modern in-line muzzleloaders are virtually as accurate and powerful as most centerfire rifles.
