"Leslie Entin never planned on packing heat. Not as a kid growing up in Queens, not as vice president of Selection de Givenchy in Manhattan and certainly not after giving birth to her daughter, Mia, who's now 5."

"But then came Sept. 11, and like many other people, Entin changed her views about a lot of things. Now, this 40-year-old Upper East Side mama is learning to shoot a gun."

HAVANA -- "Voicing the frustrations of Cuba's urban youth, local musicians followed the lead of American rap pioneers as they opened a festival slamming the police with an irreverence rarely expressed here publicly."

"...on their way to the concert they were stopped by police officers and asked for their identification, a process they said Cuban youth experience almost daily."

"Such outspokenness about the system has been rare in communist Cuba..."

These little brainwashed gamers present the "American Militia" as terrorists. They're in serious need of an education. Their contact links can be found at the lower left corner of the page. You can also submit "news", at the bottom right corner of the page. This was submitted to me by someone on the Free Kentucky alerts list. Their webmaster asked him what "NRA" page he got their url from.

Argentina: Crime wave sweeps Argentina

"A wave of kidnappings and armed assaults has thrown Argentina into panic as the imploding economy forces the poor to steal and the rich to seek bullet-proof protection."

"Bands of 'express kidnappers' have taken to abducting wealthy-looking victims in Mercedes, BMW or 4x4 cars and holding them for a matter of hours, until relatives come forward with instant, relatively modest quantities of cash."

"Some 170 cases have been reported this year in a country which a decade ago was a wealthy oasis of tranquillity, where people left their doors unlocked at night. Bank robberies are now reported daily. Gun sales increased by 50 per cent last year and murder rates by 30 per cent."

"Increasingly alarmed by constant reports of kidnappings and murders, wealthy families are bullet-proofing their windows and cars, placing armed guards outside their homes and having microchips fitted in their clothes and cars so they can be tracked by satellite if kidnapped."

WAUKEGAN [IL] — "A 36-year-old Waukegan man, whose probation was set to be revoked on a felony charge, fatally shot himself in the chest Friday morning outside the Lake County Building doors near Madison and County streets."

Submitter Comment: This in a state where carrying an uncased/loaded gun is a class 4 felony. Gun control laws do not prevent any crime. All "just" U.S. citizens should be allowed to be armed. It is a right.

"A burglar is suing a householder who chased him, caught him and held him by the scruff of the neck until police came."

"Anthony McCoy, 31, a repeat offender who was sentenced to two years in prison last month for burgling the £300,000 home on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, claims that he was assaulted by Len Johnson, 37, who caught him after a half-mile chase."

"Mr Johnson vowed yesterday that, even if McCoy's prosecution was successful, he would go to prison himself rather than pay a penny in compensation."

"All I was doing was protecting my family and our home. I did everything by the book," said the homeowner, who, in the socialist pit that is the 'United Kingdom', is forced to defend his having defended himself.

"The fact that Heston is a longtime gun enthusiast has taken on special meaning because of the Alzheimer's issue. After his announcement, news articles appeared, asking whether he might be forced to give up his guns."

"Heston says they are locked up in his house. 'I no longer hunt,' he says. 'Guns in any house should be locked up.' And his son says that, as time goes by, he will evaluate the situation as necessary." [emphasis added]

"Throughout the interview, which stretches nearly an hour, Heston never stumbles over his words, gets lost in thought or struggles with his memory."

QUESTIONS:

How is a person supposed to use a firearm in self-defense if it's "locked up"?

Does Mr. Heston really believe that millions of Americans should lock their safety tools away, leaving themselves and their families vulnerable to home invaders?

If so, is he aware that numerous anti-gun individuals and organizations agree with him -- but many sensible gunowners do not?

"Biologists are predicting a high kill for the upcoming bear-hunting season."

"The season starts Aug. 26 and already hunters are filling bait buckets with bear delicacies such as rancid meat, stale pastries, and even chocolates to lure the bears to within shotgun range."

"State wildlife biologist Randy Cross said the bears' favorite wild foods, such as apples, berries, and nuts, are flourishing this summer, so bears may be less tempted by bait buckets."

"When officers arrived, Oliver was spread-eagled, face down on the ground, Ouachita County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Paul Lucas said."

Home on the range

"After I called Citizens Rifle and Revolver Club president Carol Katona to sign up for Women's Day at the Range, I viewed my upcoming experience on mostly a conceptual level. It was fun to call friends and relatives to brag, 'Guess what? I'm going shooting. Yes —guns!' I endured a lot of teasing and several people jokingly warned, 'Watch out, those rifles have a kick,' which led to visions of me clinging to a Rambo-style automatic while it shot round after round, completely out of my control."

"The jokes was amusing enough at first, but by the time I arrived at Citizens R & R in Princeton Junction on a hot Saturday morning, I felt indignant and ready to take out my aggression on some innocent paper targets. Yes, I'm 5'2", I sit at a desk all day, and BB guns make me nervous, but I was going learn how to shoot."

"Sure as shootin', you probably won't see the Great Southern Gun and Knife Show at the Riverside Centroplex any more."

"Ernie Bean, show promoter, said he is canceling all future exhibits at the Centroplex because of rude treatment by arena staff at its show this past weekend."

"Bean also contends that his show is charged higher fees in Baton Rouge than in any other of the places the show plays. He also claims the Centroplex staff is unwilling to work with exhibitors to iron out problems and to allow the exhibitors to bring in coolers."

"A local and federal task force looking for a convicted felon wanted for having a gun ended a three-month investigation Friday with a lot more to show for the effort than a single gun."

"Police and federal officials Friday displayed a table filled with four rifles, six handguns, seven clips of ammunition and mounds of bullets seized in the investigation. There were also several kilos of marijuana."

"Police Lt. Jeff Clark said some of the firepower seized is capable of piercing bulletproof vests. 'With these type of weapons - at least two or three of them on the table - you might as well be wearing a paper sack,' he said."

[Any decent deer rifle and ammo will pierce most vests -- that's pure spin, designed to scare the gun-ignorant, gullible public.]

"Under Project Safe Neighborhoods, felons arrested for being in possession of guns who have two or more prior felony convictions for violent and/or drug-related crimes face more serious federal charges that involve prison terms of 10 to 15 years."

"Federal agents plan to serve a search warrant Monday at an explosives training school in the desert near Roswell where, authorities say, a Canadian national trained Arab students to use shoulder-launched missiles and other explosives."

[Since when do we warn of such things on CNN?]

"David Hudak, 41, was arrested last week on federal explosives and immigration charges, said Special Agent Tom Mangan of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. A criminal complaint was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque."

"Hudak, from Canada, ran the school in the southeastern New Mexico desert, where students from the United Arab Emirates and Yemen were taught how to use high-powered explosives."

"Last week, agents seized about 1,000 pounds of munitions -- including warheads, rockets and missiles for shoulder-guided weapons -- and believe they will find another 4,000 pounds when they open two bunkers Monday, Mangan said."
 

UT: Gun Rules Shot Down By Judges

"Utah judges kept gun lockers out of state courthouses Friday by eliminating their own court rules that subjected them to the new locker legislation."

"The Utah Judicial Council, which sets policy for state courts, says its rule change trumps a new state law that took effect earlier this year requiring courthouses with designated gun-free 'secure areas' to also provide secure firearm storage."

"Weapons are still banned from all Utah courthouses, where taking a weapon inside is a misdemeanor. Friday's vote removed council rules that designated 'secure areas,' generally nonpublic places such as judges' chambers, private hallways and jury rooms, where carrying a weapon was increased to a third-degree felony."

"Council members say the removal of the secure areas means courts are no longer subject to the gun locker law, which requires the lockers at courthouses that have such areas."
