"COLUMBUS — State lawmakers might have found new hope for passing a bill allowing Ohioans to carry concealed weapons, despite opposition from the governor."

"Gov. Bob Taft has threatened to veto any such proposal, saying Ohio police don't want it. But now a key law enforcement group may be softening its opposition, giving legislators some bargaining room."

--Technology Could Help Police Spot Hidden Weapons From Afar

"Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colo., are developing a system that will allow police officers to spot concealed weapons on a person without having to even be in the same room."

"...the device could eventually...be made small enough for an officer to hold in his or her hand."

When do citizens get an "Undercover Federal Agent Detector"?

This link goes to a rather distasteful but funny report of a Scotish shotgun sports event. Gives you an interesting flavor of what the gun-o-phobes are like over there, or so it seems...

"A Baltimore City man is guilty of manslaughter and a handgun violation for killing a fleeing robber with the robber’s own gun, the state’s highest court said in a 4-2-1 decision Friday."

"In an opinion that looks at the legal history of self-defense..."

"The dissenter, Judge Dale R. Cathell, said the decision is based on the wrong body of law and will protect bank robbers and other thugs. Cathell cited cases that say a robbery is an ongoing event."

Poor, dear criminals.

"Sgt. Michael C. Kerr has drawn his 9 mm Glock service pistol numerous times, but never fired it at anyone while on duty."

"And bad guys better hope he never does, because Kerr is a sharpshooter."

"A national champion sharpshooter."

"Kerr won that distinction last weekend at Camp Perry, Ohio, after winning the National Pistol Championship in the sharpshooter division. More than 1,000 shooters competed, including 200 police officers from throughout the country."

"A Bush administration decision to end funding for a program to buy back guns at public housing projects is drawing criticism as another assault on gun control laws."

"Officials at the Department of Housing and Urban Development say its 15 (m) million-dollar program took about 20-thousand guns off the streets in 80 cities in its first year."

"Opponents...say there's no evidence it has removed criminals' guns from the streets or lowered the death rate from firearms."

Expecting 150 Australian and foreign officials at the Commonwealth summit in Brisbane in October, "Queensland Premier Peter Beattie was accused yesterday of compromising police safety after revealing that only those police protecting the 52 leaders at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting would be armed."

Liberal Leader Bob Quinn and the police union are "seeking an urgent meeting with the police commissioner on the issue."

These people are morons, and AU cops know it. Good report.

Looks like people are flocking to training centers in Michigan to get situated to carry concealed. Great report, too -- except for this:

"If they (state officials) would have asked me, I would have required a permit holder to be at least 30 years old and have 40 hours of training instead of eight." -- Ron Adkins, certified as an instructor by the National Rifle Association, and certifiably a MORON.

The right to life exists at ANY age. I wouldn't give that fool my business, EVER.

Rep.Udall (D-NM) has introduced H.R.2537 "To provide for the appointment of an Assistant United States Attorney for each judicial district for the purpose of prosecuting firearms offenses." Priority would be given to crimes of violence, and to offenses by former felons. ~~This is the "get tough on crime" approach. Don't be one of their targets.

KABA NOTE: Contact the House Judiciary Committee members and your U.S. Reps to OPPOSE this bill.

Attorney General John Ashcroft isn't alone in believing the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right. At a United Nations conference last week, U.S Undersecretary of State John R. Bolton said that if forced to choose between the Second Amendment and the internationalist agenda, the Bush administration backs the Bill of Rights.
 

Teens' Crime Spree Halted by an Armed Citizen

Headline pretty much says it all, though the article is thinner on what actually happened. For three to four hours, two punks terrorized people in five locations with robberies and car jackings until an armed citizen put them in their place. It was a good thing the armed citizen worked for Hungry Howie's and not Domino's!
