"Less than two months after he was victorious in securing the Olympic Games for the capital, Lord Coe has met his first major setback. It turns out that three of the pistol-shooting events are outlawed under legislation passed in 1997, bizarrely making it illegal for the British team to train on home soil."

"According to an article due to appear in the next issue of The Field magazine, the law even calls into question whether the events - the 50-metre men's, the rapid fire, and the women's 25-metre - will be permitted during the Olympics themselves." ...
 

TX: San Augustine Jury Finds Woman Not Guilty Of Murdering Her Husband

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A San Augustine county woman on trial for killing her husband has been found not guilty. Nina Conner was accused of shooting Williard Connor to death two years ago.

She claimed it was self defense, calling her relationship with her husband an abusive one. She said she had to do it or she would have been dead. The jury agreed.

"We were very pleased that the jury agreed with us that this extreme case of domestic violence justified the use of deadly force. It's a tragedy that a life was taken, but it came down to who's life it would be," says Defense Attorney Tim James.

The jury deliberated for nine hours Wednesday before reaching that verdict.

"North Carolina lawmakers have approved a measure that would require courts to give battered spouses something extra when they seek a restraining order — information on how to apply for a concealed weapon."

"However, victim’s advocates who support efforts to curb domestic violence said the measure could end up causing more problems by bringing guns into already volatile relationships." ...

"'We’re not interested in them shooting their abusers,' said Paul Valone, president of Grass Roots North Carolina. 'We’re interested in delivering a message: When police can’t protect these people, they are capable of protecting themselves.'" ...

"Opponents say it's like throwing gasoline on a fire, but North Carolina lawmakers have overwhelmingly approved a measure to give battered spouses information on how to get guns."

"The bill requires courts to provide information on a concealed weapon permit when a battered spouse applies for a restraining order."

"Victims' advocates say the measure could end up causing more problems by bringing guns into already volatile relationships. But the president of the gun-rights group that pushed for the measure says it's about helping victims help themselves." ...

"The bill would also add protective orders to the evidence a sheriff can consider when determining whether to issue an emergency permit for a concealed weapon. The normal wait is 90 days."

Randy Stewart, assistant chief deputy for the Tunica County Sheriff's Department, said Tuesday a teacher had located a loaded .380 caliber Bryco pistol in the backpack of a five-year-old on Aug. 3.

Stewart said the firearm confiscated by deputies belonged to the child's grandmother, who is an employee of the Tunica County School District.

"Our investigation found there was no history of any criminal activity in connection with the firearm," Stewart said.

Stewart said the firearm was returned to the woman who owned it with a safety lock on the pistol.

Stewart said the grandmother and the child's parents attended counseling about the dangers of firearms.

Calls were not returned Tuesday by Superintendent Jerry Gentry.

"The case, filed by Franklin County probate lawyer and city council candidate Phil Harmon, challenged the ordinance on the narrow grounds that it would interfere with administration of estates in Franklin County."

"'It was an interesting, innovative approach,' said attorney Ken Hanson. Now Buckeye Firearms Association's Legislative Chair, Hanson is no stranger to court cases challenging local firearms ordinances. 'Fortunately the case was narrow in scope, and the Judge's ruling was largely limited to jurisdictional issues. ...'" ...

"Richmond taxpayers have spent almost $1 million in legal fees defending the city, its police department and Detective David Melvin against a federal lawsuit brought by the family of Verlon Johnson, an unarmed suspect shot to death by Melvin more than three years ago." ...

"The lawsuit, filed in May 2004, seeks unspecified damages and claims that the city has failed to properly train its officers and failed to address a pattern of excessive force by its police officers."

"'We believe this is a clear-cut case that should have been resolved amicably at the beginning rather than forcing both parties to spent a lot of unnecessary money on litigation costs,' said Betty Layne DesPortes." ...

"Johnson was standing shirtless on his front porch, with his hands in the air and a toothbrush in his mouth, when he was fatally shot. During his testimony, Melvin said that he fired after Johnson suddenly thrust his right hand into his pocket. Commonwealth's Attorney David Hicks contended that Johnson was hitching up his pants and posed no threat to Melvin." ...

Three policemen were killed in a shooting rampage by another cop, who later shot himself dead in an eastern Philippine province, police said yesterday.

The victims were on duty when the shooting occurred inside the headquarters of the police mobile group in Esperanza village in Sorsogon province, 345km southeast of Manila.

Senior Superintendent Gil Hitosis said the suspect, police officer Rodel Docog, suddenly opened fire using his M-16 rifle shortly after entering the headquarters' radio room.

Docog killed three of the officers inside the room, and injured another, Hitosis said.

"After shooting indiscriminately, Docog then shot himself," he added. "It was not clear what happened, and if Docog had an argument with the victims."

"Where an officer uses lethal force against a suspect he will be guilty of murder unless he can rely on the statutory defence in section 3 of the Criminal Law Act 1977 which permits the use of 'such force as is reasonable in the circumstances in the prevention of crime or in effecting or assisting in the lawful arrest of offenders or a suspected offender'."

"Reasonable force can be used in self defence or defence of another. That defence must be disproved by the prosecution before an officer could be guilty of murder. Considerable leeway is given to the fact that an officer may have to make a split second judgment. An honest but mistaken belief that it is necessary to fire does not deprive the officer of the defence." ...

"Furthermore, a good number of the letters received here asked for more information on firearm alternatives. Well, it would be hard to imagine a more practical tool—for such tasks as controlling pests, repelling small predators, and putting meat in the homestead freezer—than the air rifle. Such firearms are often surprisingly powerful (and, therefore, must be handled with the same respect as 'real' guns), quite accurate, easy to maintain, and extremely inexpensive to shoot. ..." ...

NY: Killings result from behavior, not guns (3rd on page)

FULL TEXT BELOW:

This is in response to the Aug. 14 letter "Bullets fly amid a distortion," in which the writer said that opponents of gun control distort the Second Amendment: The only distortion I can see is the letter writer's interpretation of the Second Amendment.

Does anyone really believe that banning legal ownership of guns would suddenly turn the world into a utopian paradise? Keep dreaming!

The reason this country has turned into a "slaughterhouse," as the writer states, is simple: softness on violent crime and not holding people responsible for their actions. If I were to use a gun in a crime and kill someone, the fault would be mine, not the gun manufacturer's.

Murders were indeed rare years ago, yet guns were easier to purchase legally back then. Strange, isn't it?

"Toronto Mayor David Miller has had no luck blaming the Americans for gun violence in his city, so now he's taking a stab at law-abiding gun owners."

"His latest idea for a 'central lockup' where legitimate gun owners must store their firearms is so ludicrous I hardly know where to begin. Creating a central gun depot would invite criminals to stake the place out and whenever someone goes to pick up their firearm for a day of hunting or target practice they can be forced off the road and robbed."

"Putting blame on legitimate sport shooters or collectors for having a firearm stolen is no different than saying a rape victim was 'asking for it' by wearing provocative clothing ..."
