"More than 40,000 firearm owners rushed to register their guns immediately before a grace period to comply with the Firearms Act expired earlier this week, Solicitor General Wayne Easter says."

"Despite the crush, the Canadian Firearms Centre central computer system did not fail as registry opponents were claiming the day after the deadline expired, Mr. Easter said yesterday."

"As of June 30, when the grace period passed, 6.4 million firearms had been registered, he said in an interview."

"Combined with a total of 613,000 guns that have been exported, destroyed or deactivated, the figures mean the government is close to accounting for nearly all of the estimated 7.9 million firearms in Canada." ...

With the fairness and legality of its policy in question, the Knox County School Board zeroes in on Zero Tolerance

Two years after he was expelled from high school over a knife a friend had put in his car, Dustin Seal was asked to list what he missed most after his expulsion.

"Homecoming."

"Prom."

"Graduation."

"My friend."

"Math class."

"Band scholarship."

"Marching."

Two years after making the list, he climbed into his bathtub and shot himself.

Seal, known as Dusty to friends and family, killed himself June 21, 2002, more than five years after he was expelled from West High School at the beginning of his senior year.

His parents sued the Knox County school system for wrongful death. The case is pending in U.S. District Court after the court on May 5 denied a motion to dismiss. ...

SALEM - "An inmate who escaped from the Oregon State Hospital might have left the Salem area, the authorities said."

"Lt. Dale Rutledge of the Oregon State Police said Michael Marks, 23, was possibly in the Portland-Vancouver area, and officers were contacting friends and family there."

"Marks, a maximum security prisoner, escaped Thursday night by climbing over a 12-foot-high fence topped with four feet of coiled razor wire. Stan Mazur-Hart, hospital superintendent, said Marks was admitted to the hospital June 11 by order of Multnomah County Circuit Court. Under Oregon law, a court may commit people for psychiatric treatment until they are able or willing to assist in their own defense." ...

"Marks, who escaped during outdoor recreation time, was charged with robbery with a firearm and second-degree kidnapping in an incident last year at a Portland supermarket." ...

FRANKLIN COUNTY -- "A 39-year-old former Zeigler police chief was arrested early Saturday morning after fighting with his ex-wife and displaying a handgun, police said. The Ingersolls' divorce was granted June 9."

"Harlen Ingersoll was arrested about 2:30 a.m. in a traffic stop by Franklin County Sheriff's deputies on Illinois 148 after he turned from Catbird Road onto the highway, police said."

"He was charged with domestic battery and possession of a firearm without a valid Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card, police said."

"Ingersoll was held in the Franklin County Jail until posting $300 cash bond Saturday evening, authorities said. Court information was unavailable."

"Police said Ingersoll was Zeigler's police chief for eight years before leaving in 2002 to join the force at the VA Hospital in Marion." ...

CONSIDER...

One might wonder if this man, as police chief, oversaw charges of "possession of a firearm without a valid Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) card" during his employment.

One also might wonder why this man got off with a mere $300 bail after threatening people with a firearm.

"The woman said she often dreamed that if Robert Fardon was released from prison he would hunt her down and shoot her."

"The woman, 37, who was only 12 in 1978 when Fardon viciously raped her and split her 15-year-old sister's head open with a gun, said she only survived because she had begged for her life."

"At the time, Fardon had drunk the juice of 20 gold-top mushrooms to celebrate the birth of his son at Redcliffe."

" 'I have no doubt he would've killed me,' the woman said. 'I find it appalling that he may get out and I'm still doing the life sentence (for what he did to me). He knows my name, he knows where I live, I'm not hard to find.' " ...

MN: Author of Minnesota's New Gun Law is a Contradiction

FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
The man behind Minnesota's new handgun permit law isn't planning to start up his own militia. He doesn't wear an ammo belt or paint his face with camouflage.

Joe Olson describes himself as a "short, balding tax attorney" from Roseville. Yet he has almost single-handedly touched off one of the biggest political firestorms in modern Minnesota history.

Olson wrote the legislation that became the Minnesota Personal Protection Act, which makes it easier for Minnesotans to get permits to carry handguns in public.

Olson is one of the founding faculty members of the liberal-leaning Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul. Yet his political opponents list him as one of the top Second Amendment legal minds in the country.

He studied the laws in more than 30 other states with "shall issue" laws for carrying handguns, then literally cut and pasted them into the legislation that was introduced this spring.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (AP) -- "Authorities in Rio bulldozed and burned thousands of firearms Sunday, a symbolic gesture as officials prepare to reach a compromise on gun control."

"A bulldozer in Rio's Flamengo park flattened more than 4,000 guns in an action organized by Rio de Janeiro's state government and the anti-violence group Viva Rio. About 150 guns and rifles were lit in a symbolic bonfire."

"Police had seized the destroyed weapons from 1997 to 1998. Brazilian legislation forbids the destruction of arms before a five-year waiting period. Rio's police confiscate an average of 12,000 firearms each year." ...

"Officials are to meet Tuesday to try to find common ground on gun control, with Justice Minister Marcio Thomaz Bastos slated to sit down for the first time with a joint Senate and Lower House commission. The government expects a compromise proposal to be voted upon by Congress by the end of this month."

"Dozens of proposals advocating varying degrees of limits on the possession and use of firearms have been stuck in Brazil's National Congress for years as successive governments and congressmen were unable to compromise." ...

"Bastos, the justice minister, would like to see more rigid requirements for gun possession permits, higher punishments for illegal possession of arms and the creation of a national system to register and control all citizens owning weapons." [emphasis added]

"The film starts with young Stevie (Cameron Van Hoy) videotaping a fake suicide message for his mother, who’s out of town on a business trip."

"Then he finds a loaded gun in a cupboard and tries to impress his girlfriend Rocky (Mischa Barton) with his new toy."

"When the gun goes off accidentally, instead of heeding the warning, the Bonnie and Clyde pair decide to take it to school with them. Along the way Stevie decides to show off his new toy at the local bank, and so begins the misguided pairs’ nightmare." ...

The American television show depicting UK "gun culture" would show a bunch of spineless cowards handing in their firearms and running in panic when little kids hold up their fingers and yells "bang!" The next scene can show a woman laying down on her back for a local rapist, politely giving him what he wants -- followed by the easy flow of black market firearms into the hands of more rapists, robbers and murderers. The final scene can show British farmer Tony Martin going to prison for shooting a career criminal, while the stilted, stuffed shirt "nobles" condemn him for harming the poor, misunderstood thug. The Brits will see the show as a compliment to their "civility".

Instead of "Pups", it'll be called "Chumps".

State police director Angel Landeros said the ambush on a 50-year-old man on a motorcycle was apparently related to a dispute involving migrant traffickers. Police found a pair of two-way radios that the victim was carrying.

The dead included four bystanders - three men and a 12-year-old boy.

Las Choapas, a truck-stop town on a main highway leading north, is a frequent stop for undocumented Central American migrants making their way to the United States.

"Standing Orders were suspended yesterday allowing the Upper House to complete the debate and pass the Arms and Ammunition Bill."

"Approval for the Bill’s passage was unanimous despite reservations expressed by senators on some of its provisions." ...

"The new law will establish a jurisdiction of the manufacture, purchase and use, sale, acquisition, import, export, manufacture and enforcement of arms and ammunition in the country."

"It will implement measures to establish a licensing system with proper records and provides for a permit regime with severe qualifications to possess, carry and use arms."

"The Labour Party’s eight senators were particularly vocal about the provisions exempting the military from the jurisdiction of the Bill because of what they considered were loopholes that could be exploited." ...

"The state sporting clays championships in Franklinville from Aug. 1-3 might have Western New York shooters 'out for some revenge,' says Bob Molnar. Molnar, who shoots in one of the lowest National Sporting Clays Association rankings and admits he does not do particularly well in tournaments, is one of the newer shooters fueling this shotgun game's resurgence."

CHICAGO -- Authorities said a 17-year-old girl who stabbed her former boyfriend to death outside the home of a South Side alderman Saturday night won't be charged.

Cook County State's Attorney's spokeswoman Marcy Jensen said the unidentified 17-year-old won't be charged because she was acting in self defense in what police are calling a domestic quarrel. Police said 17-year-old Kendall Walls attacked the girl and was choking her as he had done in the past when the girl stabbed him.

The stabbing took place near the home of Alderman Ted Thomas. Police said neither Walls nor the teenager who stabbed him are related to the alderman. However, Thomas' wife confirmed for NBC 5 that the girl lived in the neighborhood and had visited the alderman's home earlier Saturday.

The teenage girl is in police custody.

The Child Fatality Task Force was a real pain to GRNC. Now over $100,000 per year of taxpayer dollars will not be used to lobby for liberals.

The task force included several people from private liberal groups.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both. — William Rawle, A View of the Constitution 125-6 (2nd ed. 1829)
