"Shooters: Myths and Realities of America’s Gun Cultures, by Abigail A. Kohn, New York: Oxford University Press, 224 pages, $29.95"

"If there’s a gun in a scene, an old writer’s adage says, it had better go off. As that bit of advice suggests, there are few symbols more powerful than guns. They can represent liberation from oppression or serve as a weighty physical reminder of a lurking existential threat. No matter the association, the powerful emotional responses that guns elicit are largely responsible for the stagnant and vitriolic nature of the current gun control debate." ...

"It’s only a matter of time ’til death comes calling."

"Bills piled already on this year’s dust heap include proposals to ban guns in libraries and day-care centers and to close a glaring loophole in gun-show regulation. A companion bill to the latter still lives in the House, but surely not for long." ...

"Recently, three young criminals in Omaha were looking for a home to rob. Their criteria included an interesting condition. Pointing to a particular target, a townhouse in the northwest part of town, one person told them, 'That house has no guns.'"

"And since Nebraska has no concealed carry law, they could be fairly certain that none of the residents would have one on their person, either."

"Shortly before noon last November 11, the three punks (all of whom did have guns, of course) broke into the townhouse, demanded money and order residents to the floor. During a struggle in the hallway, all three intruders fired their guns, killing Trevor Lee, a 23-year-old aspiring stock market analyst." ...

"Under a reciprocal agreement, Arizona is required to accept permits issued by Utah and six other states."

"'There are about 1,000 Arizona residents who have Utah concealed weapon permits,' said Sgt. Bill Whalen, spokesman for the Department of Public Safety's concealed weapon permit system."

"Arizona has 68,538 holders of its own permits, he said."

"'The department basically is concerned about Arizona residents who have been denied a permit here getting a Utah permit and then coming back here, circumventing the system.'" ...

A second Ned Peppers employee, James W. Wilkson, 25, also is charged with assault on a peace officer stemming from the same incident during a Halloween party, but involving a different agent who was pepper sprayed.

Wilkson, who also has waived a jury, is to be tried before Judge Davis on March 23.

A 13-year-old suspected gang member driving a stolen Toyota was killed by police early Sunday after a pre-dawn chase in which he rammed an LAPD patrol car, authorities said.

The vehicle was moving erratically and police began their pursuit after suspecting the driver was drunk.

The driver stopped and a passenger, described as another suspected gang member, fled on foot.

The driver ignored commands from police, then shifted the 1992 red Toyota into reverse and rammed a black-and-white cruiser, prompting police to open fire.

She could not say how many officers opened fire, or how many shots were fired.

The driver died at the scene. It's not known how many times the youth was hit by bullets.

The passenger, a 14-year-old boy, was arrested after a foot chase, Sandoval said.

"Hunting clubs all over the Hudson Valley are being impacted by the rapid growth in housing and development."

"Some clubs close to growing residential areas find themselves boxed in. The real impact comes when residential or commercial construction borders hunting club properties. That can severely limit a hunting club's ability to use all of its property for the benefit of its paying members." ...

"Enter Deerpark. By passing local law No. 1 2005 last Monday, Deerpark helped the many well-established hunting clubs within the town protect land assets."

"The new law requires that any 'new construction shall be set back 500 feet from the property line where such property adjoins established hunting club property.'"

"The local law also provides an alternative solution, as well. A new construction owner can give the hunting club written permission to hunt within 500 feet of a building and up to the club's property line for a period of 99 years." ...

"For good reason, it's against the law to carry a loaded gun in a car in Utah without a concealed-carry permit. That should remain the law, despite a freshman senator's proposal to change it." ...

"The wording of Senate Bill 175 had not been filed as this was written, but Sen. Madsen says his intent is to allow residents to defend themselves by keeping a handgun at the ready in their vehicles."

"The two sides of this argument are graphically illustrated in The Tribune's archives of past news stories. Carjackings do occur in the Beehive State, which may be one reason why someone would want to carry a loaded weapon in a car."

"Of course, it might be safer not to resist a carjacker's demands. Giving up a car probably makes more sense than challenging another gunman to a shootout." ...
