"Students from Riverside Elementary School have been allowed to go home after spending almost an hour locked in their classrooms. Just after noon, some one reported seeing a man with two guns enter the building from a playground next to the school on Chicago Street near Chase."

"Principal James Gault says as soon as the report came in, administrators put the school into a 'lock-down.' That means each classroom was locked, and no one was allowed in or out of the building. Gault says school leaders called TPS security and the Toledo Police as soon the report came in, and moments after arriving, officers secured a perimeter around the building." ...

"The attorney for Harold Fish, accused of shooting an unarmed man at a trailhead last May, wants the case dismissed or a different prosecuting agency on the case."

"His reasons: Coconino County prosecutors interfered with and tried to suppress findings of the lead detective investigating the case, who believed the shooting was self-defense."

"County prosecutors, in a motion filed Tuesday, say that not only are the defense allegations untrue, the defense is merely trying to stall, through harassing motions, the prosecution of Fish."

"The lead detective arrived at his conclusion of self-defense prematurely and had lost his objectivity, say prosecutors. Therefore, he used poor judgment when interviewing Fish, and appeared to have given Fish the idea of self-defense." ...

"Much of the detail surrounding the grizzly bear attack that left 52-year-old Joanne Saunders with a ripped-up leg and a broken nose is largely a blur in memory, but the Virginia tourist does recall the speed of the animal that grabbed her just above the ankle Monday in Denali National Park and Preserve."

"'They're fast,' she said. 'I had no idea they could be so fast. They're just there.'"

"Saunders and her husband, James, 54, were atop an 8- to 9-foot rock outcropping near Savage River looking for a hiking route back to the park road when the bear materialized out of thick brush below them." ...

"Did you know one in four college women will experience an attempted or completed rape before they graduate from college?"

"It’s a very real national statistic that has many women afraid to be alone on college campuses."

"In this special America’s Promise Report, Local News 8’s Casey Hatfield got advice from ISU students on how you can stay safe."

"Safety has always been a big concern on college campuses, especially for women." ...

"Ashley Hargraves, RA, said, 'Lock your doors, lock your car, and carry pepper spray. I would take a course in RAD. It’s only one credit and it’s so easy, and it’s something you can do to make sure you’re responsible for you.'" ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

It will be karate yells and kung fu punches for anyone who tries to play dirty with women in Delhi as police are set to teach self-defence techniques to female citizens.

Delhi police's Crime Against Women Cell (CAWC) will train women in martial arts skills like taekwondo, judo and karate in this year's 10-day self defence programme for the city's women. Starting on May 30, it aims to raise their confidence levels by "empowering them with self-defence skills".

Said joint Commissioner of Police (CAWC) Vimla Mehra: "The main reason for the high rate of crimes against women is the perception that women are weak and vulnerable. This has to be changed by empowering them with physical defence skills.

"We will train them to be physically fit and mentally alert so that no one can take advantage of them."

"The Illinois Senate today sent Gov. Rod Blagojevich a bill that would require the destruction of state records on gun purchases, while also requiring background checks on people who buy weapons at gun shows."

"The measure poses a dilemma for the governor, who supports the gun show provision but opposes the destruction of records pushed by the National Rifle Association."

"With the NRA lobbyist pacing in the chamber balcony overhead, senators voted 34-25 to approve the NRA-backed proposal to close the so-called 'gun show loophole.' Police have complained for years that the loophole allows ineligible buyers to purchase firearms at gun shows because, in many instances, they don't have to undergo a background check." ...

"The people of the Elk Run/ Midland Airport area do not want the proposed rifle range on A.W. Patton's farm on Midland Road."

"It would be hostile to the entire environment of this quiet country community:"

"The noise from 33 rifle positions, 58 pistol positions and two shotgun ranges would be unbearable for residents in the area."

"The 94 hours of operation per week (15 hours weekdays, 13 hours Saturdays and six hours Sundays) are untenable. Anyone working the midnight shift would have no quiet daytime hours to sleep. Anyone who was sick would have no daytime hours for recuperation. ..."

"I found it interesting that your brief mention of the shooting death of Billy Walsh, a doorman at Nye's Polonaise Room in Minneapolis, never mentioned that the shooter was a permit holder ..."

Submitter's Note: Because it was irrelevant. The shooter left and came back 45 minutes later, just long enough to drive home and get a gun.

"The Minnesota Personal Protection Act has been in the news recently for two very important reasons — the 'carry law' will become law and a permit holder has been charged with murder. It seems reasonable to try to determine if this is the exception, or the rule, in other states that have had much more than two years of experience and many more permit holders than the 25,000 in Minnesota." ...

"Citing New Jersey's abundance of chemical plants, refineries, and other potential terrorist targets, a gun-control group yesterday called on legislators to outlaw the sale of a powerful .50-caliber rifle."

"'We believe this gun is absolutely inappropriate in civilian society,' Bryan Miller, executive director of Cease Fire New Jersey, said at a news conference ... 'It is a weapon of war.'"

"Miller warned that the long-range guns could be used to pierce armor, puncture tanks containing hazardous chemicals, or bring down airplanes."

"State Sen. John H. Adler ... has introduced a bill that would outlaw the sale of most firearms .50-caliber or greater in the Garden State. The bill would exempt antique rifles and muzzle-loaded guns." ...

"The Illinois House on Tuesday narrowly rejected a measure to ban the sale of assault-style weapons despite strong support from Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley."

"Suburban Republicans joined Downstate lawmakers from both parties who voted against the proposal in the latest of several high-profile victories for gun-control opponents. The 58-57 vote was a stinging defeat for Daley and Blagojevich, two of the state's top Democrats, whose aides worked for weeks to support the legislation."

"The measure would essentially replace the expired federal ban on semi-automatic weapons that can fire more than 20 rounds without reloading. It also targeted .50-caliber sniper rifles, that are powerful enough to disable armored vehicles and bring down aircraft." ...

"His bill to tighten restrictions on semi-automatic weapons would go into effect in November."

"His old employer, the Clark County Sheriff's Department in western Wisconsin, has decided to issue him an identification and let him train to carry a concealed weapon under a new federal law." ...

"Dozens of other Wisconsin police agencies have so far balked at implementing the law, which allows qualified retired police officers and sheriff's deputies to carry firearms even in states such as Wisconsin that have concealed carry bans." ...

There have been reports of a growing trend of trading young women for guns, particularly in P-N-G's Western Highlands Province, with the guns used in tribal fighting.

Dame Carol says in most parts of P-N-G exchange of wealth is part of marriage customs, which in traditional times had inbuilt protections to help prevent abuse and violence.

But Dame Carol says what is happening now is an insult to P-N-G's national cultural heritage.

Officers with the Ministry of Defence police will get the MP7, designed by Heckler and Koch, the firm which supplies sub-machine-guns to the SAS and UK civilian police forces' firearms units.

The company also designed a new small-calibre round which can pierce military-style armour without passing through a target's body.

It reduces the risk of accidental injury to innocent bystanders which is posed by standard high-velocity military ammunition.
