"Dozens of terrorist suspects on federal watch lists were allowed to buy firearms legally in the United States last year, according to a congressional investigation that points up major vulnerabilities in federal gun laws."

"People suspected of being members of terrorist groups are not automatically barred from legally buying a gun, and the new investigation, conducted by congressional officials at the Government Accountability Office (GAO), indicated that people with clear links to terrorist groups had taken advantage of this gap on a regular basis." ...

"One would imagine that after Sept. 11, every conceivable effort would be made by state and federal authorities to limit the extent to which terrorists could operate in America. As far as ideas go, this one is far from revolutionary-it's common sense. Everyone, it seems, agrees that we ought to be gunning for more stringent national security measures. Everyone, that is, except for the National Rifle Association."

"The NRA, not surprisingly, is acting aggressively to derail a proposed gun-control initiative in the Illinois state legislature. What is surprising, however, is the gun they are protecting is designed to destroy airliners. The weapon in question is the .50-caliber sniper rifle." ...

"A Muslim thinks we need to get rid of the right to keep and bear arms in order to fight the war on terror.

This same Muslim, who decries stereotyping his co-religionists, has no problem libeling those of us who rightfully embrace the original intent of the Founders:"

"'Today,' he states authoritatively, 'only a handful of citizens outside of neo-nazi and white supremacist groups view gun ownership as a means of keeping the government in check.'" ...

"He thinks that the National Guard does not afford him an adequate opportunity for rifle marksmanship, and felt that the purchase of this [AR-15A2] would accomplish two objectives." ...

"My son decided he would purchase this firearm and presented his valid Illinois firearm owners identification (FOID) card along with a valid credit card to complete the deal."

"The gun dealer saw his Chicago address and perturbedly asserted that he could not sell such a weapon to a person with a Chicago address. I told the gun dealer that there is no such state law ..."

"The dealer reluctantly conceded this to be true, but he went on to say that Mayor Daley's lawsuits and undercover investigations had created such a hostile atmosphere toward law-abiding gun dealers that he feared selling such a weapon to anyone who lived in Chicago. ..." ...

"At 15, I went deer hunting for the first time on Thanksgiving Day in Pickens County, Ala. For some time, I’d been bugging Uncle Dennis about taking me. My dad doesn't hunt, but all my cousins do, so I wanted to try it. After lunch that day, Uncle Dennis said he would take any of us hunting who wanted to go. Although they didn't say it, I knew some of my cousins didn't want to go hunting with a girl, especially one that had never been. Turns out that I was the only one who wanted to go period!"

"We were at my grandparents’ house in Fosters, and Uncle Dennis told Dad that he would take me to a shooting house on some of his property that was only 20 minutes away. My dad teased me and said I wouldn't have the heart to shoot a doe." ...

"For the past 20 years, Anda Padgett and her family have promoted gun shows throughout the state."

"She has seen the faces and the guns come and go, but lately the faces and the guns are becoming fewer and fewer."

"'I'll admit that California has about smothered us to death with all the laws, and it has really slowed the shows down,' said Padgett, owner of Central Coast Gun Shows. 'It's slowly going.'"

"Gun shows, like the one she promoted Saturday and Sunday at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds, allow gun enthusiasts a place to get together to talk guns and to trade and sell."

"'They'll come in and talk about things, hunting stories, and won't leave for two days,' she said." ...

"It all began with the word 'snitch.' It ended with the shooting of a 16-year-old boy and a still-raging controversy over who was to blame and whether someone should be criminally charged."

"Scores of people across the city have offered an opinion, with many — including police — voicing opposition to charges being filed against Patrick McCullough, the man who shot Melvin McHenry on Feb. 18."

"Many have hailed McCullough a 'Citizen Crime Fighter' and have drafted petitions to the district attorney's office urging that he not be charged."

"But McHenry's attorney, relatives and some residents think McCullough should be charged with shooting the unarmed boy who McCullough said was harassing him and seemed ready to pull a gun on him." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A former Southport police officer is in jail after shooting his wife nearly a year ago.

Monday in court, 41-year-old Edward Meyer pled guilty to shooting his estranged wife, Kelly, in the arm during an argument. That happened last April.

Meyer will serve a 90-day sentence and must also surrender his law enforcement certificate, undergo counseling and have no further contact with his estranged wife. He will also be on probation for five years.

Kelly Meyer has already undergone two surgeries to repair her shattered shoulder. She says the 90-day sentence does not fit the crime, and wished Meyer had been sentenced to more.

The judge said Edward Meyer was supposed to enforce and uphold the law and he must now pay the price.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A former grand Rapids police officer has received his penalty for assaulting a suspect.

Matthew Lockhart had pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault and battery, an incident that stemmed from the arrest of Darius Joseph in June 2004.

Other officers reported that Lockhart beat Joseph with a police radio and kicked him.

In court Friday, Lockhart received 80 hours of community service or 15 days in jail.

He then spoke publicly for the first time about what happened last year.

"I would like to apologize for the incident and indicate to you that my behavior during this incident was totally out of character, and I regret it, and I assure you that I will not be before this court again," Lockhart told the courtroom.

He worked for the police department for nine years before being fired after his arrest.
