"In the May edition of the libertarian magazine Reason, anthropologist Abigail A. Kohn, author of Shooters: Myths and Realities of America's Gun Cultures, outlined the case for why gun control advocates should find common ground with gun enthusiasts. In the same issue, George Mason law professor Michael I. Krauss characterized Kohn's sympathy toward gun owners as 'much like an article urging people not to fear the Jews because they don't really drink the blood of Christian babies.'"

"The contentious back and forth, between people who are basically on the same side, illustrates the politics and emotions surrounding gun issues. The National Rifle Association is holding its national convention today through Sunday at the George R. Brown Convention Center, and Houston probably will get a taste of that rancor." ...

"With National Rifle Association members now gathered in Houston for the NRA's 134th annual meeting, a recent Gallup Poll finds that public opinion of the nation's leading pro-gun lobby is fairly positive. Six in 10 Americans say they view the organization favorably, while about a third of Americans view it unfavorably."

"Despite this positive tilt, favorable opinions of the NRA are relatively soft. Only 18% view the NRA "very" favorably, while an almost equal number, 15%, view it "very" unfavorably. People with a less intense feeling split 42% favorably to 19% unfavorably." ...

"A pizza delivery driver is recovering after being robbed and shot Wednesday night at the Winter Woods apartment complex in south Charlotte. Police say a suspect approached the driver, demanded money and shot him in the shoulder."

"The Papa John's employee was also armed and fired a shot at the robber in self-defense, but police say carrying a gun might not be the best course of action for delivery drivers."

"'Our thoughts and prayers are with Bobby Martin and his family right now,' said Bobby Meroney, director of operations of Papa John’s in Charlotte. 'We wish him speedy recovery.'" ...

"A man accused of bursting into a convenience store demanding money was in the hospital Friday — shot, authorities said, by the great-great-grandmother working behind the counter."

"Janet Grammer was filling in for the regular clerk Thursday afternoon when a man entered the store waving a gun and fired two shots at the back wall."

"'I think he thought I was an old woman and would just give him the money,' Grammer, 64, said Friday. 'My life was at stake. I thought he was going to kill me.'"

"So she pulled a pistol out from under the cash register and fired once, hitting the man in the chest. He fell to the ground, dropped his gun and then fled, leaving a trail of blood. Grammer fired two more shots as he was running away." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

State game officers killed a female mountain lion near Las Vegas earlier this month after it killed a dog and then chased the dog's owner to his house.

Officers responded to a call from a man who said he'd been stalked by a mountain lion on April 6.

The man told game officers he'd heard a yelp, and found a mountain lion with the dog in its mouth in his back yard.

The man went inside to get his pistol, and says the lion came after him when he came outside.

He fired, but the lion chased him back inside.

Game officers couldn't find the cat that afternoon, but lured the lion out the next day by using calls of a fawn bleating.

They then killed the young female lion.

It weighed about 110 pounds.

"In most cases, a responsible gun dealer - or manufacturer, for that matter - should not be at risk for what a customer does with a firearm. But that common-sense policy is being stood on its head by an irrational bill about to be taken up by Congress." ...

"The bill would quash all lawsuits against the gun industry, except where there is absolute evidence that the gun dealer knowingly broke the law. The problem, of course, is knowing what's in a person's mind. The bill essentially would give almost blanket protection against gun makers and dealers from suits seeking damages." ...

"The sponsor of a gun-permit law that was invalidated by two Minnesota courts has introduced a bill to reinstate the law."

"Sen. Pat Pariseau, R-Farmington, said she hopes the Legislature will act this year on the gun law. On Tuesday, the Court of Appeals upheld a ruling that overturned the 2003 law."

"The appeals court and a district court judge both ruled that the law, which led to more permits being issued to carry guns in public, was wrongly tacked onto an unrelated bill to get it through the Legislature."

"'The ruling handed down Tuesday worsens the patchwork nature of the state's handgun permitting process, and overturns many important public safety provisions contained in the Personal Protection Act,' Pariseau said in a news release."

"Illinois lawmakers Thursday mowed down a series of major gun-control bills favored by Gov. Blagojevich and Mayor Daley during a marathon day of legislative sausage-making."

"By a 37-21 vote, the Senate overwhelmingly approved a National Rifle Association-backed package that would require purchasers at gun shows to undergo criminal background checks, force the State Police to destroy those background records after 90 days and scrap most local gun-control laws outside Chicago. That bill moves to the House, but its fate there appeared in doubt after House members rejected an identical NRA-backed bill by a 63-50 vote with 71 votes needed for passage." ...
 

IL: Bill requiring reporting of lost or stolen gun fails in Senate

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A bill requiring Illinois gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms failed in the Senate today.

The measure also includes stiffer penalties for illegal possession of guns and an additional requirement for buying a gun. The bill failed 27-to-27, with four "present" votes.

People would have to report stolen guns to the state police within 72 hours.

Senator Don Harmon initially wanted the state to take away Firearm Owners Identification cards from violators. The National Rifle Association objected. So the Oak Park Democrat changed it so violators would face a petty offense.

Harmon also toned down requirements for gun shops to record information from people applying to buy a gun.

Harmon used a parliamentary move to call the bill for another vote.

"Nevertheless, there are at least two ways to service the public.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Assembly voted Thursday to limit the use of stun guns in Nevada.

AB123 makes it illegal for anyone to use a stun gun except in self defense. It would prohibit felons, fugitives and mentally ill people from owning and using the devices.

If they have parental permission, teenagers could own and use a stun gun for self-defense in their homes.

The bill was backed by law enforcement groups who said the stunning devices are increasingly being marketed to the general public and winding up in the hands of criminals.

"Police spokesman Matt Jablow says the officer was investigated and cleared of any wrongdoing. And he disputes the lawsuit's claim that Hill was shot in the back, saying he was shot in the side."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A Denny's employee was fired after a U.S. Border Patrol agent complained about an insulting order slip for a chicken sandwich.

The employee accidentally gave the agent the wrong slip of paper, one that normally is used to send an order to the cook, instead of the receipt. The slip of paper included an order for the $7.49 sandwich and the words: "Border Ass Whole." Denny's corporate headquarters distributed a statement by the franchise owner that the "rogue" employee was fired after the April 9 incident.

"Denny's supports and welcomes all Border Patrol personnel and their families," the statement said.

But Tucson Sector Chief Mike Nicley said the incident showed "unmitigated gall" by the employee and called Denny's headquarters to complain. "I'm outraged about it," he said. "We take this very seriously."

... "In a well-researched, credible study by the American Academy of Pediatrics, it was found that 'nearly three-quarters of handgun owners said self-protection was the primary reason for owning a gun. Research in several U.S. urban areas indicates that a gun stored in the home is associated with a threefold increase in the risk of homicide and a fivefold increase in the risk of suicide. In fact, guns kept in the home are 43 times more likely to be used to kill someone known to the family than to be used to kill in self-defense.' The Centers for Disease and Control Prevention did a recent [1997] study of 26 industrialized countries and found that 'the overall firearm-related death rate among U.S. children aged less than 15 years was nearly 12 times higher than among children in the other 25 countries combined.'" ...
