CAPE TOWN -- "Regulations that would allow the implementation of the Firearms Control Act almost two years after the law was approved by Parliament should be completed by the end of the month, Safety and Security Minister Charles Nqakula said in reply to parliamentary questions yesterday."

"The new gun control law provides for competency testing, as well as background checks of licence applicants."

Speaking of competency tests, the report also informs us:

"Nqakula also said that 101 police officers committed suicide last year, and 43 suicides have been recorded so far this year."

"Polish state prosecutors say a gun club owner could go to jail for up to two years for using a picture of the country's central bank governor, Leszek Balcerowicz, as a target."

"The target, carrying the image of a man many Poles blame for economic hardships, proved so popular with members that the club owner decided to make and distribute 200 copies."

The man "was charged with violating laws that protect public figures from personal attack."

"A prosecutors' spokeswoman in the central city of Lodz says the 38-year-old Leszek M has already pleaded guilty to charges of 'insult and contempt' and faces a jail term of up to two years, and his case would be heard in the next couple of days."

"Legislation that would loosen the state's gun laws advanced in the House on Tuesday, a week after the fatal shooting of a 10-year-old girl sparked calls for an end to violence in Boston."

"The bill would create a new category of people eligible to own and carry guns. It would make it easier to obtain licenses for people convicted of violent misdemeanors such as simple assault, drunk driving, and minor drug crimes."

"Jim Wallace, spokesman for the Gun Owners Action League, said the legislation reverses a 1998 law that too narrowly defined 'violent' crime as any crime punishable by more than one year in jail."
 

Canada: Former prison guard tells of threats and intimidation - from fellow officers

"Behind the chain-link fence topped with razor wire, past the electronic sensors, spotlights and armed sentries, prison guard Mark Olsen was starting to sweat."

"In Kent, British Columbia's only maximum security institution, he was surrounded by violent offenders, guys who would kill 'for a pack of cigarettes' and who went armed with shanks made out of wood or Plexiglass. Some concealed their home-made knives in their rectums, secured by a quick draw string. Some had broken pool cues, with jagged, cutting edges. A lot had razor blades, melted into tooth brush handles -- perfect for slashing a face."

"But as dangerous as that bristling array of common prison weapons was, Mr. Olsen later said what really had him scared in the fall of 1999 were the fellow officers who were supposed to be guarding his back."

Brilliant FBI Sleuths "Move Closer on Motive for LA Airport Shooting"
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"The FBI appeared on Tuesday to be moving closer to establishing a motive for an Egyptian limousine driver's deadly July 4 shooting at Los Angeles airport..."

"A Muslim community leader helping authorities dig up information about Hesham Mohamed Hadayet..."

"The FBI said last week that Hadayet went to the airport on Independence Day armed with two guns and a knife with intent to kill, but his motive for opening fire on passengers and staff at the El Al ticket counter has so far remained unexplained."

"Two Israelis were killed in the attack which Israel has labeled terrorism. U.S. authorities have said they have no evidence to suggest the shooting was an act of terror, saying Hadayet was not on any international watch list and appeared to have no ties to Islamic militant groups."

KABA NOTE: Meanwhile, a guy who WAS on their list masterminded the largest terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in the history of our nation.

A quick review of the evidence: 1) The killer was a Muslim. 2) He killed Israelis, at the Israeli ticket counter. 3) He did it on one of our most precious national holidays. 4) Previous reports said he argued with his neighbor on 9/11 -- because the neighbor flew an American flag.

Even Gomer Pyle could figure this one out.

"When he was confirmed in 1997 as President Bill Clinton's second commissioner of the IRS, Charles Rossotti promised a new agency that would emphasize service and uphold taxpayer rights. Speaking to the Senate Finance Committee right after it had held hearings on gross abuses of taxpayer liberties at the agency, the new commissioner told the senators that "the IRS must do a far better job of serving taxpayers.""

"But now there's a different atmosphere on Capitol Hill, and the IRS is taking advantage. The war on terror has muted criticism of law-enforcement agencies, and the IRS likely will get a 5 percent budget increase next year for a total of almost $10 billion."

"Not every person who calls himself 'patriot' deserves the badge he or she so proudly parades in front of his fellow man. Some modern 'patriots' ought to be ranked 'rebel,' 'foe,' 'redneck' or 'blockhead'."

"Just who do some of these 'patriots' think they are?"

"Our Constitution, indeed, needs to be saved today. But those 'patriots' who justify their penchant for a violent revolution to restore the Constitution, and who do so by quoting Jefferson, reflect their ignorance, their dishonesty and their false motives. They are among this nation's worst enemies. They are rebels, not to be trusted."

"Trouble nipped at Sidney Dorsey for decades. But he had a knack for getting out of it."

"Now Dorsey's knack for walking out of tight spots unscathed is being tested as never before. Jurors in this small south Georgia town began deliberating today on charges that Dorsey -- hailed in 1996 as a pioneer for being the first African American elected sheriff in DeKalb County, a suburb of Atlanta -- masterminded the ambush killing of Derwin Brown, who defeated him in the August 2000 election."

"Brown, who had pledged to clean up alleged corruption in the sheriff's office, was hit with 12 bullets while walking up his driveway carrying a dozen roses for his wife on Dec. 15, 2000, three days before his inauguration. Nearly a year later, Dorsey -- who had attended Brown's funeral and has said he called his opponent's wife to offer condolences -- was charged with murder, along with two of his former employees."

"William Batterman Ruger, known as one of America’s greatest gun designers, has died at his home in Prescott, Ariz."

"Ruger, 86, was the founder and chairman emeritus of Sturm, Ruger & Co., the largest firearms manufacturer in the U.S. The company manufactures high-quality rifles, shotguns, pistols, and revolvers for a variety of law-enforcement purposes, with a New Hampshire plant in Newport, a plant in Prescott, and corporate headquarters in Southport, Conn."

KABA NOTE: Bill Ruger also took part in the "high capacity" magazine ban -- he fought against a 5-round limit, sought a 15-round limit and settled on your 10-round limit. Mr. Ruger's many worthy contributions to the firearms community are and will always be appreciated, but his magazine ban appeasements will not be forgotten.

SPRINGDALE, Ark. -- "County deputies searching for two Springdale shooting suspects raided the wrong home Friday in what officials are describing as a misunderstanding."

"Lily Crowley was at home with her four children and five grandchildren when Benton County deputies arrived searching for two men accused of shooting a Springdale man earlier that night."

"The Crowley's family car matched the description of a car witnesses had seen at the shooting scene."

"Deputies made the family wait outside as they searched the home with guns drawn and even handcuffed one of the daughter's boyfriends."

"The family said the raid terrified the children, the youngest of whom is 4 years old."

"There's no reason for them to do it the way did it, especially when we told then there was babies inside," resident Tiffany Meehan said. "He held a gun to my mother and she was holding my 3-week-old baby -- that's not right."

KABA NOTE: With the frequency of "ooops, wrong house" raids, one must wonder what it will truly take to bring them to an end. Be sure to watch the video on the above-linked website.
