James Forrest Mobley was licensed to carry the .40-caliber Glock automatic he pulled from his lunch cooler and used to kill two people and himself after a dispute this month at the Best Buy construction site.

The 51-year-old Port Royal man was one of 53,738 South Carolinians granted concealed weapons permits by the State Law Enforcement Division since a law allowing the permits went into effect in 1996.
 

As list of Iraq casualties mounts, give this Memorial Day its full due

...this Memorial Day is an especially important time to embrace Logan’s call to cherish “tenderly the memory of our heroic dead, who have made their breasts a barricade between our country and its foes.”

This is no appeal to partisanship. The men and women of our armed forces are citizen soldiers, not members of sectarian brigades. They have sworn an oath to the nation, not to the Republican or Democratic parties. And they do their duty regardless of which political party controls the White House.

So it shouldn't matter whether you support or oppose U.S. involvement in Iraq. On this Memorial Day, we all ought to honor the more than 3,400 Americans who have died in this conflict.

As Mayor Sheila Dixon pushes to combat violent crime by reducing the number of illegal guns on city streets, a West Baltimore church collected 15 firearms yesterday, in an event organizers said they hope will be repeated throughout the year.

Drawn into action by a steady increase in city homicides that has come despite aggressive enforcement tactics employed by police, St. Gregory the Great Church accepted guns for four hours, "no questions asked," paying a $50 reward to those who came, courtesy of a local law firm.

The shooting death of Stephen Ryan Gibson underscores the mental health loopholes in North Carolina gun laws, a product of the conflict between patient privacy rights and statutes aimed at keeping firearms out of the hands of people judged a danger to themselves and others.
 

OR: Bill of Rights prohibits government interference

The Bill of Rights should more appropriately be called the Bill of Prohibitions, because they express restrictions on government powers rather than grant rights to the citizenry. They were implemented to express restrictions on the power of the government to interfere with the rights that the forefathers believed were of the utmost importance for a free people.

The column by David B. Offer on May 15, "Gun control after Virginia Tech massacre?" is so full of one-sided and inaccurate information I cannot bring myself to fully express how poorly researched Offer's writing is.

[Question]2 Why aren't guns banned for legislators, too?

[Wyss' answer:] To climb the mountain of trying to argue with those judges and legislators who legally carry guns now was too much. We decided let's go ahead and allow that, at least for the time being. My preference is no guns at the Statehouse other than for law enforcement.

ALTON — Authorities are investigating whether a police officer acted in self-defense when he shot and killed a man Sunday morning.

Alton police officer Jose Martinez was being badly beaten by Humberto Cantu when he shot the 26-year-old once in the chest, according to Alton Police Chief Jose Luis Vela.

...

Martinez, meanwhile, sustained a broken nose, black eye and a ruptured ear drum — the result of Martinez’s hearing aid being kicked into his ear, Vela said.
 

WI: Bill Requiring Background Check For Private Gun Sales To Be Introduced Tuesday

When their son's killer brought that gun, the tavern didn't do a background check. It didn't have to. Private gun sales in Wisconsin do not have to go through the background check process.

For three years, these woman have worked with state Sen. Spencer Coggs (D-Milwaukee) to close, what they call, a loophole in the law.

"We're not trying to take your guns away," Debra Fifer said. "We just want to make sure that guns are in responsible hands."

It's called the Responsible Gun Ownership bill (SB-104).

Let me clearly inform the governor that the NRA is not a "lobby" with magic money from fat-cat donors. It's made up of millions of Second Amendment and shooting-sports supporting citizens like me who voluntarily send in $35 a year to maintain their memberships. We in the NRA are not a rent-a-mob like ACORN and other left-wing organizations paid for by the likes of George Soros and Terry Heinz.

Hoosier deer will be in Dodge City this coming season when the first legal rifle season in modern history permits hunters to use "cowboy cartridge" rifles. On May 22, the Indiana Natural Resources Commission approved an administrative rule making rifles suited for pistol cartridges legal hunting tools. The deer firearms season will run from Nov. 17 to Dec. 2 and allow all rifles, muzzleloaders, shotguns and pistols of proscribed calibers as legal firearms.

TX: Police used Tasers on the mentally ill
Submitted by: Anonymous

More than 120 encounters between Houston police and people with mental illness ended with officers using their Tasers to control troubled suspects in the grips of a mental crisis, according to a Houston Chronicle review of more than 1,000 incidents since December 2004.

In many cases, officers were forewarned they were about to encounter someone with mental health issues -- yet almost never did officers call on colleagues specially trained to deal with the mentally ill to calm a volatile episode, according to police reports.

Most of the people officers stunned with their Tasers carried no weapon. Fewer than one in four were later convicted of a crime.

"Using a Taser is easy," said Arlene Kelly.

KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- There is a new twist in the January murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian. An East Knoxville woman says the suspects in the case broke into her home just a day before the couple was carjacked.

She says the suspects tried to get inside her bedroom. The door to the room is now ripped at the bottom.

The young mother's 13-year-old son and two friends were just a couple rooms away.

"I was screaming... ya'll stay down," she says.

But there was someone else in the house. A male friend who had a gun of his own. He shot back and the suspects took off.

PA: New mayor shouldn't lobby against gun rights

In one day, acting Mayor Bill McLaughlin pursues a personal political agenda that does not represent Chambersburg residents. This legislation is another attack on law-abiding citizens' right to own firearms. It is also an attack on firearms manufacturers and retail stores who conduct business and have cooperated with all Pennsylvania laws. Currently, there are 20,000 gun-control laws in existence -- how could McLaughlin think that by adding these few laws to the books it would make our state and nation safer? Then to have the pompous audacity to sensationalize the publicity by stating that Pennsylvania is the "masters of death on the East Coast and stop exporting firearms to our neighbors" is ridiculous and makes my stomach churn!

"Yes, we anti-gun, pro-control crusaders advance our cause with emotion"

"You don't need a gun to protect yourself from a gunman."

"This isn't a Second Amendment argument, no matter how you may feel about guns. The Constitution doesn't grant us the right to pack heat wherever and whenever we want"

"The shooter, knowing that only upperclassmen are old enough to carry a gun on campus, chooses an early morning period in Brackett Hall -- a classroom building filled with freshmen -- as the target of his rampage."

So he is advocating everyone should be a victim not just the freshman? Sheesh!!

Kevin Costner Calls For Stricter Gun Laws

Kevin Costner is urging lawmakers to come up with a series of strict new gun legislation - even if it limits his own shooting time. The star admits he loves to hunt and often heads out with his dogs and a shotgun passed down through generations of his family, but he's the first to admit that America's gun laws are too weak. And following the recent tragedy at Virginia Tech college, where English student Cho Seung-Hui killed 32 people in what was the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, Costner feels that legislators should get tough with firearms owners, who refuse to accept their practices could harm others.

"...You have determined to go on with the draft in this City. This is under an act of congress, and is a national act to be performed under the orders of the national Executive who is bound in carrying the law into effect, to provide, not simply a force to quell riot but an ample and overpowering one to prevent it. We have no such force -- nor have we any controlling head, whom the public will respect and obey. Our Mayor is civilian, and the only U. S officer we have, is a Lieut Colonel, appointed originally for a comparatively unimportant duty. We have no general officer whom the community will obey..."

"...Purchases of fire arms have been made there by suspicious people, and the ordinary talk is they are preparing for a riot..."

Advocates for the mentally ill are questioning Houston police officers' use of stun guns on suspects with mental problems, many of whom were unarmed and then never charged with a crime.

Since officers started carrying Tasers in December 2004, nearly 130 people known or suspected to be mentally ill were shocked by officers responding to calls, according to a Houston Chronicle review of more than 1,000 incidents involving the stun gun.

The department also had its first Taser-related death recently that involved a mentally ill man, the newspaper reported Sunday.
