"Duffy Blume was fishing in the north fork of Campbell Creek on Sunday evening, several hundred yards south of the Alaska Botanical Garden in Far North Bicentennial Park, when he heard a grunt and a growl in the brush across the creek to his left."

"Blume knew it was a bear before he saw it. Instinctively, he pulled his .44 Magnum from a shoulder holster and crouched as a huge grizzly showed up in a bad mood."

"All I could see was this blond mass of fur, snapping his teeth, grunting and coming towards me," Blume said. "All of a sudden, it stopped and stood on its hind legs. He just stared at me." The bear was 30 feet away.

"Even in summer school, the Nixa R-2 school district is dealing with the Safe Schools Act firsthand."

"A second-grader was suspended for three days after bringing a toy cap gun to his class June 18. The punishment was decided by school officials and the boy's mother."

"The boy, attending summer school at Century Elementary, had told one of his classmates that he had the toy in his bag. The classmate told the teacher about the toy, who informed summer school principal Randy Spargo."

"Some parents responded by pulling their own students out of class for a time. Spargo said that three parents, who had taken their kids out of school, had brought them back by June 21, three days after the original incident."

"An attorney who serves as an auxiliary police officer has been arrested and accused of stockpiling an arsenal of deadly weapons and more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition in his Fresh Meadows home, authorities said yesterday."

"Police seized 16 guns, the ammunition and more than 80 high-capacity magazines used to feed weapons from Philip Bernstein's house at 69-40 Fresh Meadow Lane last week, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said."

"This arsenal of weapons is really quite unbelievable," Brown said at a news conference in which the seizure was displayed across the full length of a 24-foot-by-6-foot conference table.

Bernstein's attorney, Kevin Campbell, said he is a "sports shooting enthusiast" who is now a victim of "anti-gun hysteria."

"Two security guards working at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center were cited Saturday for carrying handguns, in violation of park rules..."

"The men...were working as armed guards in the SPAC box office Saturday afternoon during the Freihofer's Jazz Festival."

"Neither man drew his handgun, nor was anyone in any danger, Warwick said."

"Both [men] were cited under state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation rules and could each face a $250 fine."

"Beers has a state handgun permit, Warwick said. Barrett has a permit allowing him to carry a handgun only while hunting. Warwick said Barrett could face additional charges because of this."
 

MA: Anti-gun Boston Mayor finally coming to his senses?
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

In response to a recent crossfire shooting of a kid, Boston's notoriously opportunistic anti-gun mayor is finally whistling a bit of truth. Said Mayor Menino:

'I don't have a solution, I won't mislead people.'

That'd be nice -- he sure was misleading people in his attempt to force gun manufacturers out of business. (The city was forced to drop their bogus, irrational lawsuit in March.)

'We as a government can put program after program into place,' Menino said. 'But there has to be some sense of caring about life and a focus from parents on their children.'

Gee -- why didn't we think of that. The only difference in philosophy between gunowners and people of Menino's ilk is that Menino thinks a "law" is going to make a bad person good -- gunowners, on the other hand, will make a bad person lay down on the ground and whimper for mercy while waiting for police to arrive.

Pro-firearms advocates have been in a defensive posture for too long on this issue. Rather than forever reacting to the threats by anti-gun advocates, pro-gun advocates should seek a legislative affirmation of the individual's right to bear arms

This is interesting if for no other reason than to see the X-ray -- especially so when you realize this guy survived and is already back at home.

It probably won't be very easy for him to convince any friends to go spearfishing with him any time soon -- a risky scheme at best. Next time he goes out after the fishies, hopefully... he'll use his head.
 

"Freedom vs. Security -- Delicate balance"

This article was written by a new U.S. citizen -- been a citizen for about a year -- named Fareed Zakaria. Keep that in mind...

"Ashcroft has warned against even discussing violations of civil liberties, saying, 'To those who scare peace-loving people with phantoms of lost liberty, my message is this: your tactics only aid terrorists.' "

"But who is the greater help to terrorists today, the American Civil Liberties Union or the National Rifle Association? The FBI is finding out all it can about the 1,200 people rounded up since September 11—except whether they have ever bought firearms. It’s not that the government doesn’t have that information, but the Justice Department will not share it because of an NRA-sponsored law that says that information about people buying guns—even illegal immigrants!—can never be shared with anyone. Ashcroft defends this policy. Perhaps someone should remind him that we are at war."

"We're not an anti-government group. We just concerned that our freedoms are going down the toilet," organizer Wayne Hicks of Osage says. "We're concerned that our rights are being ripped away from us by a government no longer constrained by the Constitution."

"We're not a bunch of gun-toting militia anti-government nuts," he said. "We're just having a big Fourth of July party. I am probably fairly well known to the government as the man who is trying to keep everything peaceful."

"His organization, the Fourth Branch Clubs of America, believes that when the administrative, legislative and judicial branches of government won't protect individual rights, a fourth branch - the people - needs to rise up."

In case this report gets moved, their title is: "Public exchanges weapons for cash".

"Residents of the Russian Far East have turned over large amounts of illegally held firearms and explosives under a local weapons-for-cash program, police said on June 28."

"Police have paid 685,500 rubles ($21,420) in exchange for the weapons, the spokesman said."

NYC: Mayor Shoots From The Lip

"The term 'shooting from the lip' is acquiring a meaning of its own for Mayor Michael Bloomberg. His latest verbal discharge: an off-hand joke to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly Monday as the two faced questions in the hot sun about how big an arsenal the NYPD had on hand in case of July 4 terrorism."

"“Big enough to blow the press away,” cracked the mayor, sotto voce, raising a chortle from aides — and picked up on some tape recorders."

"But Bloomberg...has aimed his rhetorical shots at many more targets than the press."

"Gun images in particular have repeatedly been part of his informal banter in his first six months at City Hall:"

"The woman who two Cincinnati police officers admit they had sex with while on-duty filed a federal suit against the officers, saying she was drunk when the pair took advantage of her."

"Kandy Linthicum, 40, filed a suit Monday in U.S. District Court, saying she was 'incapacitated' by alcohol when Officers Robert Johnson and Robert Kidd Jr. took her to her Clifton home and had sex with her."

"The woman was celebrating her birthday Dec. 4, 2001, in a downtown bar. After 12 beers and at least four shots of alcohol, the suit notes, she tried to leave the bar at 1 a.m. when the on-duty uniformed officers approached her and took her home in their police cruiser."

"Once inside her home, the suit notes, the officers took off their gun belts, exposed themselves and 'demanded' she have sex with them."

The post-9/11 atmosphere here in Congress has provided ample excuse to concentrate on safety at the expense of liberty, failing to recognize that we cannot have one without the other."

There is so much about society that Mike Newdow would like to change.

He does not understand, for example, why the English language allows itself anything so cumbersome and awkward as masculine and feminine pronouns. The Mike Newdow dictionary would replace "he" and "she" with "re," "his" and "hers" with "rees" and "him" and "her" with "erm."

"In its 2001-2002 term, the U.S. Supreme Court attacked civil rights and liberties, striking
blows to the separation of church and state, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the privacy rights of students and other fundamental rights. The number of close decisions -- often by 5-4
votes -- that were led or joined by Associate Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas points out the grave risk presented by future appointees in the mold of these two right-wing activist justices."
