"Hoping to spend as much as it wants on next year's elections, the National Rifle Association is looking to buy a television or radio station and declare that it should be treated as a news organization, exempt from spending limits in the campaign finance law."

" 'We're looking at bringing a court case that we're as legitimate a media outlet as Disney or Viacom or Time Warner,' the NRA's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, said in an interview." ...

"The nation's gun lobby is talking with potential investors about an NRA broadcast outlet and is considering all possible funding sources, including gun manufacturers, LaPierre said."

*Robert Russ Sr., 22, was one of two unarmed civilians shot and killed by Chicago police in a single week, June 1999.

*Gonzalo Martinez, 26, shot and killed by Downey, Calif. police, Feb. 15, 2002.

*Nathanial Jones, 41, died after being beaten by Cincinnati police, Nov. 30, 2003.

"These cases are only a small percentage of the more than 300 unarmed citizens killed each year by police officers who claim they had no other option than to use a service firearm or other means of lethal force."

" 'Other options,' however, to bring people under submission have been made available to various police departments across the country. In the western United States, there is a sweeping trend by police districts to adopt nonlethal weapons."

"Unbelievably, the City of Cincinnati’s 'government officials' have proclaimed that the brutal murder of an inebriated but 'powerful' black man caught on a police video, 'was justified.' Huh? ..."

"The facts: The black man was stretched out on the lawn of a White Castle restaurant. This may have followed or been preceded by bizarre behavior clearly indicating that he was inebriated. Perhaps the 'substance' abused was alcohol, perhaps drugs. He was not hurting or threatening anyone! Restaurant employees did not call police; they did the right thing, and called for Emergency Medical Services. The victim, a human being named Nathaniel Jones, was clubbed to death 'resisting arrest.' "

"I explained to Koering that my intention was not to confront law enforcement, but that law enforcement needed to be held accountable. I asked Koering if he was aware of what the discharge of a firearm was called by military and police personnel. He was silent. I responded, 'It is called a report, and in essence, what this bill does is to silence the report of accountability that police officers have to the communities in which they are entrusted to enforce laws.'

"A democracy is NOT the same as the Great Republic, not anywhere near the same. The Founding Fathers did not assemble a democracy here. In fact had made it abundantly clear they hated this form of government, in fact hated it with a passion. It is treasonous to remold their words to imply otherwise for it is this very act that led to a Constitution not of their making and opened the floodgates to steal all our liberties. The Great Republic and the American democracy, any democracy actually, every bit of it, are opposites and it is the American democracy which is our undoing."

"The list is endless but nearly every commercial segment contains one or more drug ads with more seeming to be added every day.

A staff member of the Central American Parliament, a body that promotes regional integration, was arrested for selling cocaine in the parliament's offices in Honduras, police said.

"We arrested Jorge Alberto Caceres in the parliament offices where he carried out the distribution and sale of cocaine," prosecutor Doris Aguilar told Reuters Thursday.

It was not clear what position Caceres held. The parliament, which has few powers, has its headquarters in Guatemala and offices in Honduras, Nicaragua and El Salvador.

In August, a Honduran deputy in the parliament was arrested while trying to smuggle 15 pounds of heroin into Nicaragua.

"Five forces in England and Wales have been testing the Taser gun, which incapacitates by delivering a 50,000-volt shock, since April."

"Guidelines say they are only supposed to be used in incidents involving guns or a 'threat to life'. But last Monday the Metropolitan police used a Taser against a 35-year-old woman who had set fire to her home and was threatening to cut her wrists. A spokesman for Scotland Yard said Taser use was permitted because the woman's life was in danger."

"For the record, Littlefield, a self-described "tank nerd" and die-hard libertarian, is not what he would call a 'right-wing wacko.' He just happens to be zealous about restoring tanks, tank destroyers, armored cars, self-propelled antitank guns and other military hardware -- all of it legally deactivated."

"...Hearing movement is very restricted in a blowing gale, so a lot of success is predicated on being able to detect movement out of the ordinary."

"A quality pair of binoculars can be a hunter's best friend in these situations. You do not want to use your gun scope for spotting as this creates larger movements. That means the deer see you before you see them, so they win."

"Add in a drizzling rain and some colder air, and it just gets plumb miserable. Isn't it sort of amazing how we will not get out of the house to go to the store or do some of the outdoor chores, but we will head to that deer stand? Ah, what sacrifices we hunters must make!"

"Five days later something happened that made me realize that escorts aren't needed just in big cities. That was, of course, the day Dru Sjodin disappeared from the Columbia Mall parking lot. Police say she was kidnapped by Alfonso Rodriguez Jr., who has been convicted for two sexual offenses and assault."

. . . " 'That's not the case in Clearbrook,' she said. 'Too many have the mentality that it can't happen to us where we live. We should hold self-defense classes and awareness classes. We need awareness. People are too lax.' "

We need to allow students to carry the defensive tools they need to fight off vicious predators.

"Since the hidden cameras started rolling in Broward Sheriff's Office interview rooms, get a load of what detectives have caught on film -- coming soon to a courtroom near you:"

". . . And then there was the robbery suspect who was allowed to make a cell phone call during a break in questioning."

" 'During the telephone call, the suspect called his girlfriend and gave her instructions on how to dispose of the evidence in the case,' said O'Neil."

". . . Last year, Broward State Attorney Mike Satz urged all law enforcement agencies in Broward to begin videotaping their interrogations from start to finish, saying it would help eliminate many legal challenges."

"Berrien County police ...handed out Wal-Mart gift certificates in exchange for unloaded guns."

"Participants received a $100 certificate for turning over an assault-style weapon, $50 for a handgun and $25 for a rifle or shotgun." ...

"It's a very easy process. You come in, put your gun on the table, and then we give you a couple of gift certificates from Wal-Mart and then they're on their merry way. There's no name taking or identification requirements. They simply supply the gun to us at the sheriff's department and they get a certificate."

-------
The criminals are most assuredly thanking the police department for providing them with an easy way to dispose of the guns they used in crimes with no questions asked.

"I'm beginning to wonder if the gun makers will ever come to their senses and quit bringing out new rounds."

"It's as if they've gotten on a treadmill and can't get off it. Some of the stuff they're coming out with is about as badly needed as a new batch of product-liability lawyers."

"It's only been a few months since I wrote a column complaining how the gun makers keep roiling the pot with new cartridge introductions, hoping that'll entice shooters to go out and buy new guns."

"It turns out that if anything, I understated the case in that earlier column because I just learned from the latest issue of "Shooting Times" magazine that two additional new rounds have made their appearance."

"This fall Virginia's deer hunters said goodbye to a long tradition when the openers for the early muzzleloader and general firearms seasons moved from Mondays to Saturdays."

"The change received generally good reviews and also prompted a fair amount of speculation that it could be a step toward changing another Virginia tradition - the ban on Sunday hunting."

"Virginia is one of just a handful of states that allows no hunting on Sunday. The list is shrinking."

"Maryland and West Virginia are among the states that recently have relaxed Sunday hunting bans."

"Evan Shultz took his hunter's education course when he was 11. Now almost 13, he still hasn't shot at a deer, but the seventh-grader at Purchase Line High School doesn't mind."

"Even when his father, uncle and grandfather got bucks this week and he didn't." ...

"On Wednesday, three generations of the Shultz family loaded up their gear and went hunting in Pine, Indiana County. Paul Shultz, 55, of Cherry Tree, has been hunting for 43 years. His sons, Dave, 32, (Evan's dad), and Greg, 29, have both hunted since they were 12, and Evan's the same."

"The men have passed the tradition along."

NEW Zealand’s finest songstress, Kiri Te Kanawa, turned up in Glasgow last week and gave the receptionist at her Holiday Inn hotel a bit of a shock when she asked the location of the gun store.

The 59-year-old opera dame, who commands around £50,000 per performance, assuages her Maori blood every year with a spot of hunting in the Scottish hills. An expert clay-pigeon shot, she frequently travels with her sporting guns.

The hotel was quick off the mark and summoned the polis, mindful that Glasgow was last week branded, once again, the murder capital of Europe. Well, would you have taken her on?

Although deer-hunting season ends Tuesday, a recent incident in which a house was struck by a hunter's slug highlights a growing problem in a rural county where shotgun hunting is allowed as more and more land is being developed.

One day after David Skelton heard a noise upstairs in his Rockledge Drive home, his wife noticed wallboard dust on the carpeting in a guest bedroom.

"I looked around, and I found a large hole in the wall behind the headboard of the bed ... I could see daylight through the hole."

...saw a hole in the vinyl siding ... saw a 20-gauge shotgun slug on the floor. It struck a bed where, hours earlier, her mother and grandmother had slept. ...

"The Pennsylvania Game Commission is experimenting with a program that allows would-be hunters to take a portion of their hunter-trapper safety education course on-line or at home.
At two hunter safety courses -- one in September, another in October -- the PGC gave students two choices."

"Option one was to attend eight hours of classroom instruction spread over two nights, then spend five hours on a Saturday doing hands-on learning that involved live-fire exercises, shot placement and safe gun handling."

"Option two allowed students to do the classroom portion of the course at home, either on the Internet or using a workbook. They still had to show up on a Saturday, however, for the five hours of hands-on training."

"It is pathetic to listen to the voices of those incapable of enduring life's simple tasks. They are so accustomed to having all their needs fulfilled they have lost the ability for original thought. Shovel the walk or plow their own street? Oh no...that's the government's job. Is there a rabid skunk at the back door? Hide in the house and call animal control. Save for retirement? Why? We have Social Security." ...

"Interesting how the most intolerant section of our populace continuously preaches tolerance. It is hypocrisy at its finest, diplomacy at the end of a gun barrel. Or at least it would be if not for the widespread urban terror of anything with a trigger."

"Gustavo Orejel, a 22-year-old Santa Ana resident with no record of violent crime, faces life in prison for allegedly shooting a gun at a car full of gang members who had just fired several bullets at his house ... But because Orejel stands accused of belonging to a gang, prosecutors aren't even required to reveal the identity of the two witnesses they say have fingered Orejel in the shooting."
