"More than seven months have passed since New Orleans residents were forcibly and illegally disarmed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, and starting Monday, April 17, the City of New Orleans will be returning seized firearms to their rightful owners, thanks to legal action by the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and National Rifle Association (NRA)."

"'We've learned from the police that starting Monday at 8 a.m., New Orleans gun owners can get their firearms back,' noted SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. 'The city had been denying for more than five months that these guns were in possession. Only when SAF and the NRA filed a motion to have Mayor Ray Nagin and Police Superintendent Warren Riley held in contempt of court did city officials miraculously discover that more than a thousand seized firearms were being stored.'" ...

"Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has decided to stop selling guns in about a third of its U.S. stores in what it calls a marketing decision based on lack of demand in some places, a company spokeswoman said Friday."

"The world's largest retailer decided last month to remove firearms from about 1,000 stores in favor of stocking other sporting goods, in line with a 'Store of the Community' strategy for boosting sales by paying closer attention to local differences in demand."

"'This decision is based on diminished customer relevancy and demand in these markets,' said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Jolanda Stewart."

"Stewart declined to specify what stores were affected." ...

A single parent struggling to feed her three children, Morales was left a quadriplegic with no prospect of looking after her family or herself.

Spinal cords severed, brains blown out, families destroyed, hearts broken. At least 300,000 lives are lost every year to gun violence, one million people injured and countless more traumatised." ...

"'But I still can't believe they charged me with the actual murder, which had a mandatory life sentence. All the stress ... mucked my nervous system up.'"

"High schoolers playing with guns?"

"Normally this would be cause for alarm, but not so for students in American History class at Milton Union High School."

"They were treated to a Living History 502nd PIR presentation about World War II Paratroopers in an effort to give facts and figures a human front."

"Dave Dehart ... wearing an original 1942 jumpsuit, and John Fowler ... gave a rundown of what it was like to be a soldier in World War II, describing the missions, food and basic details."

"They displayed the equipment that the paratroopers had to wear - 150 pounds of parachute, shovel, ammunition, and of course, guns. The artillery ranged from rifles to machine guns to the hand held pistols and knives." ...

"The House of Representatives approved a change in state law Thursday to make it easier to shoot someone and claim self-defense."

"One legislator contends the proposed law would let people with criminal records kill police officers who pull them over, and get away with it."

"But backers said the change just brings Arizona in line with the rest of the country."

"The bill would scrap existing law requiring a defendant to prove to a jury that a claim of self-defense is more likely true than not. Instead, the burden would be on prosecutors to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the killing was not done in self-defense." ...

"It was a fight to get a concealed weapons law passed, but the struggle is not over."

"The debate now centers on whether the records of citizens who get the permits will be open to the public."

"'I think there's no reason for that. I don't know what could be gained by having a list of these people's names, for what reason,' said Dennis Hagemann, Capital City Gun Club." ...

"But the Kansas Press Association disagrees."

"Director Doug Anstaett said open records would benefit Kansas citizens."

"'For instance, if you're wanting to take your child to a baby sitter you may want to know whether that person or a person in that house has a concealed carry permit,' Anstaett said." ...

When they arrived at about 10 p.m., it looked like the caller suspected - three figures were in the street, running, ducking behind trees, darting into car ports. All had hoods tied close around their faces and wore glasses or goggles."

"All were carrying pistols in their hands."

"At least, that's what officers assumed from what they saw."

"It turned out the only lethal weapons that night were in the hands of law enforcement. The three men became one adult and two youths, ages 12 and 14."

"'People are reluctant to come out and try it … and we try to alleviate some of those concerns,' he said. 'It’s all whether or not people are willing to give it a try just like anything else.'" ...
