FL: Real-estate agents get keys to self-defense -- but not the best defense training...
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"On May 15, Andrews discovered in horrifying detail the vulnerability of real-estate agents, many of whom are female. That's when the customer she guided to nine area homes suddenly pulled a gun."

'I thought I was going to die,' Andrews said.

So the local police are training real estate agents, but telling them, "Don't carry a knife or gun unless you are trained to use it."

"The women and sprinkling of men who attended also learned to use the body's built-in weapons: Hands deliver painful ear claps, nails rake the face, fingers pull hair, elbows jab abdomens and feet kick out knees. Williams suggested women save the knee-to-the-groin attack for last, 'when the bad guy is down and you can run.' "

"It's been a rough few years for historians. The higher the rung, the greater the fall. Plagiarism infected the works of superstar authors Doris Kearns Goodwin and Stephen Ambrose. Both are prolific writers who fell prey to pressures of time, sloppy researchers, careless rewrites and history as big business, all of which interrupted their 20 minutes of academic celebrity."

Second Amendment Facts and Fiction (letter)
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"John Lee [letters, June 7] misreads the Supreme Court's Second Amendment ruling in the Jack Miller case, erroneously suggesting that the court upheld a right to "bear arms" unconnected to service in a "well-regulated militia."

"The Supreme Court decided that the 'obvious purpose' of the amendment was "to assure the continuation and render possible the effectiveness" of state militias, and 'it must be interpreted and applied with that end in view.' "

KABA NOTE: The Supreme Court did NOT say the second amendment was for state militias -- that is a lie... but not a surprise from the Post, who lies often when it comes to gun rights.

Could someone please explain to me exactly how the gun malfunctioned? It seems to me it worked exactly as designed. Perhaps the gun had a habit of jamming. That seems to be the most common malfunction of semi autos.
