"The kick from the blast pushes my hands back as the casing flies out and hits the floor."

"That's all it takes to end a life. That's all it takes to feel invincible, just the simple squeeze of a trigger."

"Americans have a love affair with guns."

"Gun law expert John Snyder attacked perpetrators of identity theft recently on the National Rifle Association’s live Internet program, www.NRANews.com."

"He said the nation’s fastest growing crime is 'a serious potential threat to the rights of the country’s 80 million law-abiding firearm owners.'"

"Host Cam Edwards conducted the interview. He announced last week that an informal Internet poll of the program audience indicated two-thirds of the viewers agree ID theft is a matter of deep concern to them." ...

"[Snyder] is concerned that if a law-abiding gun owner’s identity is stolen by a criminal, that criminal could use the gun owner's good name to acquire a firearm which otherwise the criminal could not obtain." ...

"Mayor Bloomberg and Boston's Mayor Menino hosted a summit to stop the spread of illegal guns in communities, with thirteen mayors from other cities... in attendance. Bloomberg referenced the death of 2 year old David Pacheco, saying, 'The only thing that would have helped that child is if we had the courage to stand up and get the guns off the street. And those who vote against getting guns off the street really are the ones as much responsible as the shooter, because if the shooter didn't have a gun, that child would still be alive.' Fighting words - and the Mayor also blamed Congress for not doing enough. A Harvard professor explained to the Times, '... We have many more handguns and much weaker gun laws than any other country.'" ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A central Iowa grade school was locked down for a time Tuesday over a report of a firearm. The Polk County Sheriff's Office got a report around midafternoon of some kids carrying and concealing a gun, near a northside Des Moines grade school. Principal Deb Chiodo was told about it, and put Cornell Elementary on lock-down status.

Deputies say they found the kids, got the gun, and quickly determined it was a plastic air-soft pistol that shoots rubber pellets. The deputies told the kids just how unwise it was to play with the lookalike gun near school property and the lockdown was over in about fifteen minutes.

"A local teen is facing firearms charges after police said he was caught with a stolen BB gun in his school bag at Coakley Middle School on Monday afternoon."

"Police spokesman Paul Bishop said school officials overheard students talking about it, and reacted by searching the 14-year-old boy's locker, then his bookbag, where they found a BB pistol."

"'They did a very good job,' Bishop said of the school staff."

"Police went to the school at 2 p.m., and discovered the pistol had been reported stolen during a break-in over the weekend in town, Bishop said."

"The gun was never a danger to other students because it was missing a compressed-gas cylinder it would have needed to be fired, Bishop said." ...

"Now that Gov. Tim Kaine has vetoed the proposed bill to legalize the transportation of a gun in a locked compartment in a vehicle, an evaluation of the arguments surrounding the defeat of this bill is in order."

"Not only because misinformation abounds and purposeful disinformation was the order of the day, but really because the successful jeopardy of one Constitutional 'right' is a precedent and threat to all such Constitutional 'rights' enjoyed by all Americans."

"It also voted for a bill to bar the state from taking guns or ammunition from people during a state of emergency."

"'Nothing should chip away at our freedom,' argued Rep. Lynne Ober, R-Hudson. If weapons had been confiscated centuries ago, 'we might have been singing God Save the Queen,' she said." ...

"The bill would allow people to use guns or other weapons in self-defense anywhere where they have a right to be. It would remove the requirement that a person retreat when it's safe to do so." ...

"One year after Florida enacted a law protecting people who kill in self defense from being sued, other states are following Florida's lead."

"But some laws backed by the National Rifle Association are causing a controversy. The laws generally enforce a victim's right to retaliate against a would-be criminal and provide immunity from prosecution or civil suit." ...

"Peter Hamm, spokesman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said the bills give people more leeway to shoot someone instead of resolving disputes without violence."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Somewhere out there, a police officer is without a gun.

When Surrey RCMP arrived at the 102 Avenue Loop in North Surrey Monday afternoon to investigate a car break-in, they discovered that it wasn't just any car.

It turned out an unmarked police car - not from the Surrey RCMP - was the target.

Even more alarming, however, is that the thief got away with the briefcase that, among other things, had a 9mm police handgun in it.

RCMP are going forward with a criminal investigation with the hope of recovering the stolen gun, but they say they will also ask why a service pistol was left unattended in the vehicle.

Police are not saying which police department the car belonged to.

"The unicameral has left a huge gap in our security with the half-measure authorizing concealed weapons."

"People can forget their guns, or forget to load them. Some might not even be able to afford the gun and the $100 or so for the permit. We will only be truly safe when everyone is armed."

"State and local governments, along with civic-minded businesses and citizens, must make that happen. Public transportation could carry loaded handguns in handy seat pockets. Fast-food restaurants should have a small shelf of guns next to the carry-out lids; sit-down restaurants could place them in the center of the table with the condiments. Upscale dining establishments could offer complimentary handguns to parties of four or more." ...

"WE can only speculate on the catalyst. But as a generalisation it must be accepted that society is failing children who turn to guns and other weapons and engage in violent crime in alarming numbers."

"Police Minister Judy Spence may take comfort from figures she says show the rate of offences involving children and guns has not changed in the past three years, although the number of offences has risen – risen from two a month in 2002 to three a month in 2004. That is not a response the community expects, or accepts. The Police Minister's reference to an improvement on the rate reported in the 1990s seems a grotesque measure of tolerance. One child wielding a gun is one too many." ...
