"on a secluded 35-acre property in Park County, more than 20 miles from the nearest police station ... hearing suspicious noises outside, Thomas and his wife armed themselves and left their house to investigate. A few minutes later the intruder was shot and killed. The details are in dispute, but from what I've heard, my sympathies lie with the Thomas. Especially since a district judge recently ruled that the incredible charge of first-degree murder against him will stand."

"While nearly all of the 51 incidents last year were the direct result of the violation of one or more rules of firearms safety, 16 were self-inflicted, 30 involved members of the same hunting party, 26 involved shooters over the age of 30 and 15 incidents involving two parties occurred when the shooter and the victim where within 20 yards of each other. ... Numbers suggest that the state's hunter education program has played a significant role in slashing the hunter-accident rate."

[NOTE: Anti-gun rant, but lots of good info.]

"It says that anyone who is not a criminal or ... unstable and who can pass a ... class qualifies for a concealed-weapons permit... We went right to the point where it says: A permit ... holder [may] carry a concealed handgun in all areas of the state, except as specifically limited in this section. No concealed weapons in public schools, [or] where prohibited by federal law [or] on private property if the owner objects... Do you see any room there for cities to keep guns out of parks?" by Mike Littwin, RockyMountainNews.com

Note: What's next, the Bobbies just telling everyone that commits a crime to come on in so they can arrest them?

"Newspapers reported that the mix-up started when a suspicious neighbor called police in Manchester after he saw a man loitering near a friend's van.

Instead of sending out a patrol car, officers asked that the suspect be put on the telephone -- and then accepted his story that he was not committing a crime."

"Employees, shoppers and politicians exchanged high-fives two weeks ago at the Kmart on Broadway when city officials announced a bailout that kept the store open. ... They've invested $2.5 million - including $300,000 in the latest lifeline - into the Kmart store through tax abatements, grants and other incentives. For their investment, they got a store losing $500,000 a year owned by a bankrupt company."

"The US has inquired with the UN's legal department whether it could legally "unsign" the treaty and had been told that, under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, it had that right, UN officials said. An official White House request, however, has not been made."

"Christopher Koper, from the university's Jerry Lee Center of Criminology, examined the federal government's attempt to reduce crime through changes in firearms licensing requirements. He found that while the reforms pushed 70% of gun dealers out of the gun-selling arena, the changes did not oust the dealers who supply most guns to criminals."

"gun control laws do little to prevent seriously mentally ill people from buying guns. But it's not just gun rights advocates, such as the National Rifle Association, who oppose substantial new restrictions. Mental health specialists worry about unfairly painting the mentally ill as violent, and even some gun control advocates fear that tighter rules would compromise privacy rights and doctor-patient confidentiality."

"Sunday hunting restrictions have made it difficult for sportsmen to hunt on private land. The restraints could be erased this spring if the Ohio Senate gives the nod to the legislation recently approved, 91-2, in the Ohio House."

"We're urging sportsmen to contact their state senators. The restrictions are unnecessary red tape that hurt hunter participation and infringe on landowner rights."

"The concealed carry bill that was just approved by the Ohio House is unnecessary. ... The low comedy here is that even these weak training and registration requirements are objectionable to some concealed carry purists. They want a 'must issue' law that would hand out permits to any adult who asks for one." - Opinion of The Cincinnati Post

"THE NEWLY PASSED Missouri House bill that allows people over 21 to carry firearms in their vehicles contains no safeguards to protect people from gun owners who are felons or mentally deranged. ... The lawmakers deserve an ... F for foolish." - Opinion of STLtoday.com

How dumb can you get? Of course there's a law - it's called assault, murder and rape. That's why people have the right to be armed.

"A so-called compromise bill that would set statewide standards for issuing permits for carrying concealed handguns was introduced Tuesday in the House with bipartisan sponsorship."

"Gun-control groups rushed to oppose the bill - one of the first concealed-carry measures in recent memory to have Democratic sponsorship. Critics say Matsunaka is backing the measure to gain support for his 4th Congressional District race."

"Sarah Brady was in full compliance with the law and it is ridiculous to assert that she would do otherwise. She tells the story about the hunting rifle, purchased with a safety lock, in her new book, A Good Fight. Mrs. Brady has always been quite clear that she is not "anti-gun," but rather wants common-sense gun laws."

The following is a link to the New York Daily News' retraction.

"France may reconsider its gun laws in the wake of a mass shooting by a gunman that left eight dead and a further 19 injured."

Inotherwords: Durn was prohibited from owning a gun by French Law due to mental illness. Some bureaucrat in the system made a mistake and allowed Durn to get a gun. Therefore, we must change the law and make it harder for any one to get a gun.
