DENVER — A 24-year-old female intern with the Colorado Geological Survey radioed for help before she went missing and a man found camping in the area was arrested after her body was found, officials said Wednesday.

"I don't know how you can prevent something like this," Matthews said, later adding: "I worry about lions and bears all the time with our mappers, but you just don't think about this kind of evil."

Submitters note: You prevent this by carrying a gun when you are alone and venerable.

"When we first started teaching the course [ten years ago], there were maybe one or two women each year," Oberst said. "Now we teach the course every month, and there are four to six women every class, every month."

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a not-for-profit trade association for the shooting, hunting and firearms industry formed in 1961, 23 percent, or approximately 5 million, of all the target shooters in 2005 were women.

Handgun Training Basics

How good do you have to be with a handgun, and what type should it be to defend yourself? Tough questions. Not everyone lives in Mayberry RFD or in an urban ghetto. Not everyone has the time or money, despite their interest, to practice regularly, let alone attend "gun school." The problem with self-defense is that we don't get to determine the nature of the threat, or the level of it; the bad guys do.

Now, he says, his next goal is to find himself a wife.
And the former fisherman is convinced he will outlive the ailing Cuban President Fidel Castro he once plotted to assassinate.

"He's far less healthy than I am, he can hardly talk," Temprana said of the 80-year-old communist leader who has been recovering from intestinal surgery for almost one year.

Beaming with pride, a US flag sewed onto his left shirt pocket, Temprana joined some 150 others in reciting the US pledge of allegiance, swearing to bear arms for the United States if called upon to do so.

"Now I am American," he said, smiling and waving a small US flag.

A break-in at Jet's Florida Outdoors, 9696 SW 40th St., has police looking for 26 handguns, all still unaccounted for.

'It's a fairly cut-and-dry smash-type of burglary,' said owner Mark Siegel, whose damages amount to over $18,000.

Motion-activated cameras show the two men, faces masked in bandannas and baseball caps, as they pried the back door of the shop open with a crowbar early Wednesday morning. Familiar with the store, they went straight for the guns: semi-automatic pistols and revolvers of every caliber between .38 special and .44 magnum.

A Portland homeowner shot a 26-year-old man trying to burglarize his home early Friday morning, police said. Homeowner Leroy Hudson, 71, shot the man between the eyes, according to police. "My Mom told him she heard some noise in the pantry and she had the gun and gave it to him... I'm glad he had one," said Walter Hudson, the homeowners' son.

On Roe v. Wade, he says, astutely, "I don't answer that because I wouldn't want a judge to have to answer that. I don't consider it a litmus test." But he may give the pro-life crowd jitters when he adds, "I think a conservative strict constructionist judge could come to either conclusion." He suggests that the real test should be intellectual honesty, and to that end he cites D.C. Circuit Appeals Court Judge Larry Silberman's recent opinion on the Second Amendment, affirming a constitutional right to bear arms. This is a nice piece of political turnabout--to respond to a question about his stance on abortion by citing favorably the most important pro-gun-rights decision in recent history.

"I'm not tailoring the message any particular way because those are constituencies that largely have joined with me because they know of the consistency that I have both in my record as a governor, but also in my comments," the former Arkansas governor says. "There's no YouTube out there of me taking very different positions on critical issues whether it's the sanctity of life or the Second Amendment or tax policy, etc."

Huckabee rival Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, has been criticized for changing his positions on the issues Huckabee raises.

How should young women protect themselves? For that matter, how should any innocent citizen avoid being a victim? According to the Metropolitan Police Department, you should stay alert and “wear clothing and shoes that give you freedom of movement.” Those are well-intentioned ideas, but for those of us not interning at Sports Authority, sneakers and running shorts are usually not included in our daily dress-code.

...I am not surprised “call the police” doesn't show up on the list, as their eight-and-a-half minute response-rate would seem about as long as waiting for Christmas morning when you were little.

In the wake of the shootings at Virginia Tech University this past April, New York State Assemblyman Phil Ramos (D-Brentwood) has sponsored a bill that aims to create a "disqualifying information" registry to enhance gun control throughout New York State. Information contained in the registry would be used to prevent mentally ill individuals, or those who are suspected or convicted of a crime, from purchasing or possessing a firearm. The gun control legislation passed in the state Assembly on June 14 and, as of press time, was still waiting to be voted on by the state Senate.
 

Firearms Industry Hails Decisive Passage of Shelby Amendment Safeguarding Law Enforcement

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearm industry's trade association, is hailing passage of a law enforcement friendly amendment sponsored by Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) which cleared the Senate Appropriations Committee as part of a spending bill with a demonstrative victory evident by a 19 - 10 vote. Similar language was approved by a House subcommittee handling that chamber's version of the legislation. "This is a great victory for law enforcement and a sound defeat for those seeking to misuse firearms tracing data -- jeopardizing the lives of law enforcement officers -- in order to file civil lawsuits against members of the firearms industry," said NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane.

Whether it's your "lucky" deer rifle, the single-shot .22 that your dad gave you as a kid or grandpa's old double-barrel shotgun, every gun collection has something special that's fun to display. Unfortunately, however, most gun cabinets are large, dark and heavy — in other words, just plain ugly — not to mention expensive. Now there’s an attractive and affordable do-it-yourself alternative to settling on something you (and your spouse) don’t really like. This classic Craftsman-style gun cabinet makes a handsome home for your collection and looks great with almost any decor.

A visitor to Durban, KwaZulu-Natal during the recent rugby Test who claims he was mugged and nearly raped on his way from a club near the Absa Stadium said he has lost faith in the police.

This comes after a police officer from Durban Central Police Station said to him, "it's a pity you weren't raped" when he tried to make a statement at the station.

I was then chased out of the charge office and another officer shouted at me, saying it was a pity my attackers didn't rape me," he said.

"I was left stranded and nobody wanted to help me. The police are meant to protect and help us and look at the way I was treated."
 

CO: Woman Murdered in National Forest

From the article:

"A man has been arrested in connection with the death of a 24-year-old geology student whose supervisor heard her scream for help on her radio before it went dead, authorities have reported.

Alyssa Heberton Morimoto had been working in the Pike-San Isabel National Forest southwest of Denver with Karen Houck...

Authorities report the two had become separated... and Houck suddenly heard the plea for help."

Submitter's note: This is another SAD reason to work for legal CCW in National Parks. Although this happened in a National Forest where CCW is legal if you have a license in that state, this just shows what can happen when alone in the woods. CCW is forbidden in National Parks.
 

NY: Is Bloomberg a Fan of Moore and Gore?

Here’s what the mayor was talking about: Since 2004, a provision in federal law known as the Tiahrt Amendment has restricted the ability of federal officials to release gun-trace data, which show where guns used in crime were manufactured and sold. Mr. Bloomberg and other gun-control advocates have urged Congress to repeal the provision, but on Thursday, the Senate Appropriations Committee went in the other direction, voting 19 to 10 to pass an amendment sponsored by Senator Richard C. Shelby, Republican of Alabama, that strengthens the Tiahrt restrictions, making it illegal for police officers to share gun trace data for any reasons other than specific investigations.

In a blow to Mayor Bloomberg's campaign against illegal guns, a Senate committee yesterday voted 19–10 to pass an amendment that mandates prison time for police officers who use federal gun-trace data for anything except specific investigations. Mr. Bloomberg responded to the vote with a harsh statement, saying the senators who voted for the amendment made America less safe. "Today's vote … showed Congress at its most craven, buckling to pressure from the gun lobby to protect those who traffic in illegal guns — even if it means locking up police officers," he said. The new amendment will "empower criminals, undercut cops, and endanger innocent citizens," he said.

Dave Workman, communications director for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), Thursday disputed Helmke's assessment of legal developments in recent months.

"There were several gun rights victories this year that the Brady Campaign conveniently overlooks," he told Cybercast News Service.

Workman noted that Missouri and Texas both passed legislation strengthening private citizens' self-defense rights, and "in Washington state, gun rights activists successfully stopped an attempt to regulate gun shows out of existence."

Some are calling a former U.S. Marine a hero for shooting two men — killing one — during a botched robbery of a sandwich shop in Plantation, Fla. ...

John Lovell had just finished dinner at about 11:15 p.m. Wednesday when, Plantation police say, two men, armed with guns, rushed inside a Subway restaurant and demanded cash. After robbing the store, the men turned to Lovell. They wanted his money, police said. But like his attackers, Lovell was armed.

The retired military man opened fire, shooting dead Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale, and critically injuring Fredrick Gadson, 21, of Fort Lauderdale.
