"Weakened by illness, George Eastman, the founder of Eastman Kodak Co., lay down on March 14, 1932, and put a bullet through his heart."

"He left behind a note saying, 'My work is done. Why wait?'" ...

"Police took Eastman's gun — a German Luger — into custody. But in time, the pistol went missing and stayed missing despite efforts to track it down." ...

"A Luger sold to the Guarinos' company in 1972 for less than $500 bears a striking resemblance to police photos of the Luger used by Eastman, though some key identifying evidence is missing."

"If the Luger is the suicide pistol, it could be worth millions." ...

"... Theresa then grabbed her .45-caliber pistol and continued running after Campbell -- despite the dispatcher's plea for her to drop the handgun."

"'I am going to go get my .45 ... you all are too slow,' she said."

"As the call continues, the dispatcher asks Theresa to get rid of the weapon. However, after the suspect tried to escape along a creek bed, Theresa and Hershall used the pistol to make sure he didn't leave." ...

"A gun bill favored by the National Rifle Association and other sporting groups is whizzing through the legislature despite opposition from Nelson County officials and others who see it as an end run around Nelson’s denial of a shooting-range permit application." ...

"The bill provides that no city or county may prohibit or disapprove construction and operation of a sport shooting range if the sound produced from the range meets certain specified criteria." ...

"A bill moving through the state legislature that would limit localities’ regulation of sport-shooting ranges has the attention of Nelson County officials and residents, some of whom think it originated from a dustup there involving a shotgun sporting estate."

"Its backers deny that, but the bill’s outcome may affect an ongoing legal battle between Orion Sporting Group, now called Orion Estate, and the Nelson Board of Supervisors, which halted the company’s attempt to operate in rural Wingina."

"Sponsored by Del. Bill Janis, R-Short Pump, the legislation would prohibit localities from stopping sport-shooting ranges from moving forward if the shooting noise met a specified standard. It also would not allow nuisance lawsuits related to noise if the standard, an average of 64 decibels within a one-hour period, is met." ...

"The gunfire was so rapid that shoppers in a mall in Kingston, N.Y., about 55 miles south of Albany, at first thought the weapon was a machine gun. It was a semiautomatic assault rifle. The miracle is that, despite the firing of 60 rounds, nobody was killed. ... Congress, unfortunately, has made it easy for the likes of Bonelli to shoot up schools and malls. Rather than strengthen a ban on semiautomatic rifles, Congress let it lapse last year. Also, Congress has refused to close the loophole that allows buyers from unlicensed dealers [sic] at gun shows to forego background checks. Bonelli reportedly bought his weapon at a gun show."
-------

Submitter's Note: A) The gun was perfectly legal, even under the 'ugly-gun' ban. 2) There is no indication that the gun was purchased from an 'unlicensed dealer' (i.e. private citizen).

"Faced with a knife-wielding man in a Bonita Springs home in May, two Lee County sheriff's deputies drew their guns."

"When he moved toward them, stabbing at the air, one of the deputies fired."

"The man fell to the ground, stunned by a 50,000-volt shock from a Taser M26 gun. The other deputy holstered his Glock pistol." ...

"But the weapon's utility and the growing dependency on it by law enforcement agencies has not come without a cost."

"A review by the Daily News of 269 occasions on which deputies discharged their Taser guns last year shows the weapon also has been fired to stop prisoners from kicking at windows of a car, urinating on a deputy's laptop and yelling. Those shocked by Tasers ranged from teenagers to octogenarians." ...

"That is precisely what has homeowners in the area concerned. As we understand it, bullets have struck a couple of houses and some have been found nearby. So far, no one has been hurt. But the sands of time and probability continue to trickle through the hourglass."

"At the relatively young age of 18, Reese stands on the threshold of becoming a national-class rifle shooter. If life works out the way he wants, the current Nitro High senior will shoot for a college team next year. After that, who knows? Might he earn All-America honors?

"The judges were more likely to be alienated by the fact that three Olympic events involving pistol shooting are already banned here, so that our sportsmen are constrained to train abroad, and the law would have to be suspended ... to accommodate these competitions. ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Police are looking for the owner of the three rifles and three shotguns, discovered during a search of the Yarra River in Warrandyte, in Melbourne's north-east today.

Water police carried out the search after two men reported finding a rifle and the butt of a shotgun while swimming in the river near Stiggant St on January 25.

The divers this afternoon found the remaining half of the shotgun, the other five guns and 74 shotgun cartridges.

Police said it was not known if the weapons were linked to any crimes and all were in a very rusty condition.

Police said the guns would be taken to an armoury in a bid to trace their owner.
