Ask, and you shall receive (Michigan CCW)

Dawson Bell, Reporter for Detroit Free Press, navigates Michigan's new concealed weapons permit process:

"I don't own a firearm or plan to get one. I haven't been threatened. I don't live or work in a high-crime area.

I have no discernible need to carry a concealed weapon, or reason to ask my county gun board for a CCW license.

But I did anyway. And they gave it to me.

Of course, the board didn't have much choice under Michigan's new concealed weapons law."...

This is an answer to a previous letter in this paper suggesting that guns should be registered as cars are.

Wait, make that "Marion Pritchard Shot Nazi Officer to Save Children."

Good thing she didn't follow UN and Brady advice and get rid of her "evil gun."

Can somebody who knows the email address send this to the UN and ask for comment?

Another example why a 1911A1 beats calling 911! The woman was literally on the phone with Police while being stabbed to death.

Hero jailed for parole violation - Taking intruder's gun broke rules

Remember the stupid burglar who set down the gun where his victim could get to it? Well, the victim/hero is now being held in jail because he handled the gun--a violation of the terms of his parole. Let's hear it for "zero tolerance," eh? Even the San Francisco police are "frustrated" at this turn of events.

School strip search not actionable

"A federal appeals court has upheld a judge's ruling that a strip search of elementary school pupils was unconstitutional but that a teacher and a police officer involved could not be sued for conducting the search."

Sure, just take the clothes off of your fifth graders. If you're a teacher or a cop, you're just "acting to fulfill your duties," according to the court. Since when did undressing kids become the "duty" of a teacher?

All this for $26, which BTW they never found.

Armed robber forces woman to give him a ride and knocks her out

"The robber forced the woman to drop him off at California Avenue and Pine Street... After warning her not to call the police, the robber hit the woman on the side of her head with a gun and fled... The robber also stole her purse and cellular phone."

If she'd been armed, this may have turned out differently. My bet is she wouldn't have gotten pistol whipped.

CBS shelves reruns due to Proctor & Gamble's fear of Guns

"While advertisers often choose not to sponsor particular programs, several industry executives said it was unusual for a network to shelve episodes of a prime-time series in deference to a single advertiser. The executives also said CBS's action was a potentially worrisome example of the tastes of a large advertiser being able to influence a network's programming decisions."

The story dealt with a domestic abuse case, where the MOTHER had a handgun. P&G got the network to not air the rerun. Gag me.

KABA NOTE: This makes a great case for boycotting sponsors to make our voice heard.

The NRA has a point about the inadvisability of simply taking guns away from the populace. If that were possible, it would not disarm that small percentage of the population willing to break the law.... Punishing people who obey the law is backward thinking. Hugh Downs, Veteran ABC newsman
