"Police have licensed 70 prosecutors across the country to carry firearms for self-defense following the murder of prosecutor Ferry Silalahi in Palu, Central Sulawesi, on May 26."

"National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Paiman said on Friday that the Attorney General's Office (AGO) had asked the police to authorize the carrying of firearms by its prosecutors, whose lives were often in danger due to the cases they were handling."

" 'We agree to issue licenses to 70 prosecutors nationwide. It depends on the AGO to decide which prosecutors will be armed as it knows better which prosecutors need to defend themselves,' said Paiman." ...

"A group of sporting magazines and gun clubs sued Contra Costa supervisors in San Francisco federal court Tuesday over an ordinance banning the sale of .50-caliber rifles."

"Supervisors approved the controversial restrictions in April, arguing that a terrorist could use the powerful weapon to set an oil refinery ablaze in a toxic conflagration."

"Supervisor Millie Greenberg of Danville voted against the measure. At the time, she pointed out that proponents failed to produce a refinery safety expert to corroborate those claims."

"The ordinance, which goes into effect Sunday, applies only to dealers in the county's unincorporated areas. There are two such retailers, neither of which sells .50-caliber weapons."

"Local law enforcement officials and politicians gathered Friday at the base of the Tower of Americas to call for a renewal of the Brady Bill."

"...Supporters of the ban on assault weapons called on Republicans to help deliver their message to President George W. Bush..."

"BEWARE, HUNTERS and target shooters. Assemblyman Mark Ridley-Thomas (D-Los Angeles) is back with another bill to infringe upon the rights of legal gun owners."

"You may recall that last year he had AB 992, which proposed a 10-cent tax per bullet on the sale of ammunition in California. This was soundly defeated. His new bill (AB 2858) would exempt people with a valid hunting license, but the fees would still apply to law-abiding target shooters who do not hunt."

"The new bill would impose a 10 percent fee on all ammunition and a 5 percent fee on all handguns sold in California, in order to establish a 'Firearm Victims Reimbursement Fund.' "

"It's a common sense step that most cities would like to follow, but apparently cannot at this time."

"The program focuses on youth with first and second offenses involving guns. As part of their probation, a Cook County Juvenile Court judge orders juveniles to attend a gun-violence program. Through the weekly sessions and 12 hours of community service, the juveniles learn how a single gunshot can change a life forever."

"Thursday's brutal murder of 1-year-old Ashley Hurt by a knife-wielding man at a Midlothian shopping mall outside of Chicago is just one more reason why Illinois citizens deserve a concealed carry law, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) said today." ...

"Published reports tell us that the suspect went through the mall area, also stabbing four adults... Had there been a legally-armed citizen at that strip mall, who could have justifiably intervened to stop the rampage, that toddler might still be alive. It took a courageous teenager who recently arrived here, to bring the attack to a halt by clubbing the suspect with a flashlight."

"DuPage County has settled a federal lawsuit filed by a man whose arrest on weapons charges two years ago became a rallying point for a group advocating the right to carry concealed handguns."

"John Horstman, 43, of Schaumburg picked up a check for $50,000 at the DuPage County state's attorney's office Wednesday. DuPage County sheriff's police had arrested Horstman on July 24, 2002, and charged him with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for carrying a 9 mm handgun in a case in his backpack while bicycling along the Illinois Prairie Path." ...

"Horstman's arrest became a rallying point for Concealed Carry Inc., an Oak Brook-based group promoting the right of law-abiding citizens to carry weapons. The group, which also advocates the consolidation and clarification of Illinois gun laws, used Horstman's case to draw attention to a clause in the state gun law that allows registered owners to carry an unloaded gun 'enclosed in a case, firearm carrying box, shipping box or other container.'
