UK: "Guns pose bigger risk than drugs" -- longer jail terms sought for mere possession

"The head of the Metropolitan Police's gun crime task force is calling for a minimum five-year jail sentence for the increasing numbers of young men who carry guns as a 'fashion accessory'."

"Commander Alan Brown, head of Operation Trident which targets black-on-black gun crime, said wielding a gun had far more lethal consequences than drug-dealing but carried a much softer penalty. The current 'derisory' nine-month sentence for gun possession was partly to blame for the rise in the number of muggings carried out at gunpoint."

"Of increasing concern is the number of muggings in which real or imitation firearms are used. In the first eight months of last year, armed muggings rose by 53 per cent in London alone..."

"A GRAN handed over a shotgun she kept in her coal cellar as part of a firearms surrender."

"The 88-year-old had the gun for 47 years, but only gave it to after Lothian and Borders Police began an amnesty on Monday."

"Cops also seized two fake guns in incidents in Edinburgh during the week."

Deputy Chief Constable Tom Wood said: "If police spot you with a weapon, that can have fatal consequences."

Question: What kind of a "man" would disarm a frail 88-year-old woman?
 

Canada: Frustrated gun owners sign petitions on plywood, plan to nail them to Parliament doors

"A new association formed by gun owners frustrated with the national firearms registry has begun collecting signatures on sheets of plywood with the intention of nailing the oblong petitions to the doors of Parliament...next January. It's the latest in a long list of stunts organized to protest Liberal gun-control laws, which require all weapons to be registered in a national database by 2003."

""The nuts and bolts of the whole thing is that it's just a bad law," said Jim Turnbull, one of the founders of the Canadian Unregistered Firearms Owners' Association, an offshoot of the Law-abiding Unregistered Firearms Association."

"He said the plywood protest, dubbed Operation Nail-it-to-the-Door, will be peaceful, but everyone involved is willing to be arrested to prove a point."
 

FBI Mum on Source of LAX Shooter's Guns

"While maintaining there is no evidence connecting July Fourth LAX shooter Hesham Mohamed Hedayat to any larger terrorist plot, the FBI has been silent on the origin of the guns he used in the attack."

"Hedayat was armed with a .45-caliber semiautomatic Glock pistol and a 9 mm handgun when he fired nearly a dozen times at people working at LAX's El Al airline ticket counter, killing two and wounding four others."

"The FBI could have easily traced those guns by now," complained WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg on Sunday.

"But they're not telling us how he got the guns or whose guns they were," the radio host added. "Why not? Were they his guns?"

"Police Chief Fred Lau filed charges this week with the Police Commission against two officers involved in the 1998 shooting death of 17-year-old Sheila Detoy."

"Sergeant Gregory Breslin was being charged with firing his weapon without justification. Another, James Zerga, has been charged with misrepresenting the truth."

"The charges come more than a year after the Office of Citizen complaints first asked that the officers be disciplined. The office expects Lau to file charges against two more officers connected with the shooting."
 

UK: Dunblane [feelgood gun ban] is killing my sport

"Cop claims gun ban will cost Scots shooting glory at Games"

"A POLICEMAN yesterday claimed anti-gun laws introduced after Dunblane were killing his sport."

"Sharpshooter PC David Rattray, who will represent Scotland at the Commonwealth Games, infuriated survivors of the massacre."

"He said Britain's chances of competing internationally were under threat from laws brought in after 16 primary ones and teacher Gwenne Mayor were shot dead in 1996."

Rattray said: "There is a very negative attitude towards the sport. Since Dunblane and the ban people are afraid of the sport and no one is coming up from the grass roots. Access to shooting in safe and responsible environments is difficult as many shooting clubs are closed. I can see the sport dying out within 10 years because of public perceptions and a lack of access."

"Can gun control reduce crime? One side of the debate says it does the opposite."

"We believe gun control is counterproductive, because it makes the working environment safer for crime," said Dr Peter Hammond, director of United Christian Action.

"United Christian Action is an umbrella organisation for 20 bible-believing groups networked for social action."

"Gun control disarms victims," Hammond said. "It is affecting law-abiding people, because they are the ones who actually go through the process of obtaining a licence."

"All holocausts and genocides have been preceded by gun control..."
 

Woman who's afraid of gun calls for arming pilots
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

"In May, the feds declined to allow commercial pilots to carry firearms. Guns scare me, and I wish there weren't so many of them floating around. But if anybody seems qualified to handle one, it would be a person we already know is really good with machinery. Somebody who is cool under pressure. Somebody who has been screened and tested. Somebody we trust to fly a gigantic hunk of metal filled with our valuable selves."

"A pilot."

"But instead of using what amounts to an existing army, the Transportation Security Administration plans is to hire and train more air marshals. This has to be not only time-consuming but expensive. Marc Feigenblatt's plan is cheaper, quicker and safer. A Boeing 727 captain and instructor, he helped organize the Airline Pilots Security Alliance, lobbying to “train, arm and deputize volunteer airline pilots.”"

KABA NOTE: Perhaps this woman's fear of guns is simply due to a lack of training and experience on the range -- where she'd surely have a blast. If you're in the Cincinnati area, consider sending her a letter offering to take her shooting... Email her.

Thank goodness this dead man didn't have a gun to defend himself -- one of the several people who hacked him to death might have gotten hurt.

"A man killed in the Melbourne suburb of South Yarra had suffered horrendous injuries from a machete-like weapon, a homicide detective said today."

"He's been horrendously injured with some large, sharp object," Detective Senior Sergeant Jeff Maher said. He said the man was attacked early today with something "maybe similar to a machete, a sword or a meat cleaver".

"We believe there were a number of males involved in these incidents and a number of motor vehicles as well," he told ABC radio.

SANFORD, Maine (AP) - "A man was arrested on weapons charges Friday near a small airport shortly before President Bush arrived on his way to his family's seaside home, police said."

"The man, identified as Christopher Willey, 38, of nearby Springvale, was held on charges of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and having a loaded 9 mm gun in his vehicle, state Trooper Jeremy Forbes told the Portland Press Herald."

KABA NOTE: Bush's bodyguards carry machineguns, but a citizen cannot carry a mere handgun at the same airport -- the president's silence on the issue of RKBA rights violations is deafening.

Heads up to all who support gun show freedom and gun rights everywhere.

Ammo sales at the Phoenix gun show this weekend (July 6 & 7) and at all future shows may be virtually eliminated if the Arizona State Fire Marshall Inspectors office has its way.

They have announced that only a total of 25,000 primers or loaded rounds will be allowed in the building at one time, claiming the fire code restriction on the number of primers under one roof applies.

UK: Crime is 40% higher than official figures show, massive police under-reporting cited

It seems as though the British police have been under reporting crime statistics...and things are 40% worse than thought!

"The true level of crime is as much as 40 per cent higher than official figures show."

"Home Office statistics, drawn up by traditional methods, will this week show that 5.5 million crimes were committed in the 12 months to March 31, an increase of six per cent on the previous year."

"They will be dwarfed, however, by the next set of results, due to be published in October. New, more accurate methods of counting crime will reveal a huge leap in offences and show the extent of crime in Britain."

"Surveys of crime levels by several police forces, obtained by The Telegraph, show that up to 6,000 more crimes are being committed every day than the current official national figures suggest."
 

Questions remain after report by police on FBI shooting

"In a report released by Anne Arundel County police last week, FBI agents answered many of the questions about what went wrong the night an agent mistakenly shot an unarmed Pasadena man [in the face, with a machinegun The People cannot own, while his innocent girlfriend shrieked in horror]."

"But some of the most troubling questions about why things went wrong March 1 remain."

"For example, why didn't FBI agents recognize that the man in the car they had stopped was not the bank robbery suspect they had a photo of and planned to arrest? Why did the agent who fired the shot through a car window think the man was armed? And why did agents around the car shout conflicting instructions at who turned out to be not a suspected bank robber and his sister, but a young couple on their way home from a local mall?"

"Special Agent" Christopher Braga has returned to duty -- not unlike FBI's famous murderer Lon Horiuchi, who shot an unarmed woman dead while she was holding a baby in Ruby Ridge, Idaho several years ago.

"In a section on the Bill of Rights, a children's Web site produced by the Government Printing Office mentions the right "to Keep and Bear Arms in Common Defense." A quick look at the 2nd Amendment makes no mention of the common defense, but does mention the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Could the intentions of the author be more obvious?"

Study: Guns no safer when locked up.

Once again, John Lott gets it right.

"Trigger locks and gun safes don't reduce the number of gun accidents, and they actually put gun owners and their families in greater danger, a new report says."

"What happens is it makes them more vulnerable to crime," said John R. Lott, Jr., a University of Chicago Law School professor who has published the study Safe-Storage Gun Laws: Accidental Deaths, Suicide and Crime. "Criminals become more emboldened to attack people in their home."

"Lott cited a Merced, Calif. family whose guns were put away because of the state's safe storage law. John Carpenter, who lost two children in an attack in 2000, said a gun would have stopped the man who broke into his home with a pitchfork."

"Passengers are not checked for weapons or even closely monitored at most airports when they enter the terminals where ticket counters are located, a security situation that may need to be changed, U.S. government officials say."

"After the shooting Thursday at the El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport, federal officials were reviewing whether security improvements were needed there as well, the officials said."

Bahrain: Citizens urged to 'declare' unlicensed firearms 'to regularise their legal status'

"Bahrain's Ministry of Interior yesterday urged citizens and residents, who are in a possession of unlicensed firearms to declare them at the ministry's Central Investigation Department."

"The step comes in the wake of last week's shocking incident in which a Bahraini civilian security guard shot his colleague to death at the workplace before turning the gun on himself. The two, who worked for Bahrain Telecommunications Company's (Batelco) Satellite Earth Station in the eastern coastal town of Ras Abu Jarjour, were not supposed to carry arms."

"In a statement carried yesterday by the official Bahrain News Agency (BNA), the ministry said the law "forbids the exchange of ownership of arms through sale, grant or borrowing, and anyone who did so must report to the department to regularise their legal status.""

"Action will be taken against those who violated the law in this regard," the statement warned.
