"The body count in Northwest England’s Cumbria county earlier today stands at a dozen dead and more than twice as many wounded, suspected gunman Derrick Bird is dead and he used only a sporting shotgun and .22-caliber rifle, according to published reports."

"Not an 'assault weapon' in sight, and there are indications that Bird may have legally owned those guns as he was apparently a member of a local gun club." ...
"American gun prohibitionists have frequently held up the gun laws of Great Britain as their model. They have created the impression that English-style gun laws would prevent outrages in this country. Today's shooting spree ... should forever put the lie to this argument.'—CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, Bellevue" ...

... "So why would anyone surrender a firearm in the first place, let alone under those conditions?"

"It's 'law-abiding' people trying to abide. They fear becoming state-created criminals. The government's licensing fiasco, combined with its misleading amnesty statements have induced/scared some to fold."

"I'm, not normally fearful, but an exhibit in downtown Denver gave me a dose of paranoia. At The Cell, ... there is currently an installation called 'Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere-Understanding the Threat'. The whole thrust of the show is to point out that there are terrorists of every stripe all over the planet. ... All use terror as a method to get their message out to the world, and the effect on regular folks is pretty much the same: death and destruction."

"... Most of the exhibit dealt with bombings, and there isn't much an armed citizen can do about them after the fact ... If Scott Stewart of STRATFOR is correct, we will be seeing more shootings. We could well make a difference in that case, real time." ...

"Yesterday the California Assembly approved a bill that would make it a crime to openly carry a gun in public. Under current law, Californians may carry guns openly as long as they're unloaded—a fact that some gun owners have used to make a symbolic statement about their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. The alarm generated by these displays gave rise to the bill, which now goes to the state Senate. ..." ...

"What's interesting is that carrying a concealed weapon, which by the logic of this bill's backers would be preferable, is much harder to do legally in California. In addition to undergoing training and passing a criminal background check, you need permission from the local sheriff or police chief ..." ...

"Talk about your inconvenient truth. Five days after Chicago Mayor Richard Daley had held a press conference touting the benefits of the city's handgun ban by brandishing a rifle with a bayonet and ... cracking a joke about shoving it up a reporter's bum, an 80-year-old man on the West Side of Chicago traded gunfire with a burglar, killing the intruder."

"For advocates of gun control, the optics on this story are just awful. It's nearly impossible to drum up any sympathy for the deceased, Anthony Nelson, who had a long history of drug and weapons convictions and was on probation. He attempted to break into the house, brought a gun with him, and fired twice at the so-far unnamed homeowner." ...

"The Chicago gun debate finally shows signs of changing. With the Supreme Court's decision on the city's gun ban imminent, people might be beginning to understand that gun bans don't stop criminals from getting guns."

"At a press conference two weeks ago, Mick Dumke, a reporter from the liberal Chicago Reader, asked Mayor Richard Daley what should have been an obvious question: 'Since guns are readily available in Chicago even with a ban in place, do you really think it's been effective?' Daley's response wasn't very helpful. ..."

"... But it wasn't Daley's answer that was important. The novelty is that a reporter actually questioned Daley on whether the gun ban had failed." ...

Quoting the Mexico City newspaper El Universal, it tells us about a Mexican 'crime gun' source that Calderón, the Brady Campaign, the Violence Policy Center, and others would like us not to know about, because it's obvious that no combination of restrictions on American civilians can do anything about it."
"A percentage of the weapons, the seller said, come from Mexico via Ministry of Defense personnel who provide [them] in part from weapons seized in raids, or stolen from the ministry's own arsenal."

With the prospect looming of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling his city's ban unconstitutional, and after the state Supreme Court tossed his $433 million lawsuit against the gun industry, he is now calling for a change of venue — to the World Court normally reserved for disputes between nations and crimes against humanity."

"'A pistol is only good for fighting you way to a rifle.'"

"It's a common quote, often attributed to Jeff Cooper and other well-known tactical experts."

"In today's increasingly complex battlefield, and in times of economic collapse and the shrinking legitimacy of the state, we often find that rules of thumb once taken for granted have been turned upside down. Perhaps it's time we reconsider the tactical utility of pistols."

"Perhaps the biggest fallacy held among modern patriots, militia groups and survivalists is the idea of SHTF. ... that one day everything is going to be perfectly normal and the next day life is utter chaos…it's just not going to happen." ...

OH: Estimates OK for speeding tickets, court rules

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Ohio's highest court has ruled that a person may be convicted of speeding purely if it looked to a police officer that the motorist was going too fast.

The Ohio Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that an officer's visual estimation of speed is enough to support a conviction if the officer is trained, certified by a training academy, and experienced in watching for speeders. The court's 5-1 decision says independent verification of a driver's speed is not necessary.

The court upheld a lower court's ruling against a driver who challenged a speeding conviction that had been based on testimony from police officer in Copley, 25 miles south of Cleveland. The officer said it appeared to him that the man was driving too fast.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A Chicago police officer was found guilty Thursday of stiffing a cabdriver of an $8 fare and then threatening him at gunpoint.

About half a dozen cabdrivers cheered when Judge Thomas Byrne convicted the officer, John Killackey, a 10-year veteran, of misdemeanor theft and assault following a short bench trial. He is scheduled to be sentenced June 24.

"This shows that the cops are not above the law," said Karl Clermont, the cabdriver whose complaint against Killackey led to the charges.

Submitter's Note: Effectively robbing a cabbie at gunpoint is a misdemeanor? It couldn't have anything to do with the fact that the penalty enhancement for use of a firearm in a felony is 15 years could it?
