The only thing we can do is to try to limit the damage by continuing to empower the majority of law-biding, decent individuals with the freedom to defend themselves.

Terre Haute — Money and state-issued identification is about all you need to buy a gun in Indiana.

“It’s easy,” according to Jeff Lacher, who works for his dad, Don Lacher, the owner of Patriot Sporting Arms on Maple Avenue. “But a lot of people don’t know the law,” he added.

Guns or no guns in the courtroom? When and how to staff the metal detector? 'Card-swipe' only or old-fashioned keyed doorways around the Justice Center? What security protocols should be implemented for Justice Center visitors?


These are just some of the courtroom security questions that the court security and facility committee has been recently addressing.

Kalamazoo area law enforcement officials should follow the lead of their counterparts in Kent County.

The Kent County Sheriff's Department, the Grand Rapids Police Department and the Kent County Prosecutor's Office recently announced that weapons can be turned in over the course of several days in early September. Supporters have so far raised about $10,000 to use in purchasing the weapons and hope to increase that amount to $50,000.

The reality is that a buy-back program is a success if only one gun that might be involved in a shooting is taken off the streets.

The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association has rated incumbent Republican state 103rd District Assemblyman Patrick Manning above GOP challenger Marc Molinaro in next month’s primary election. The association gave Manning an “A” rating and Molinaro a “B” rating. An “A” rating equates to being an outspoken supporter of the group and sponsors pro-gun legislation and initiatives and a “B” rating supports the association and votes for pro-gun legislation and initiatives.

The families of the South Florida children killed by stray bullets in recent months remain in mourning, but have taken on a new fight: a petition drive to have state lawmakers change the 'Stand Your Ground' law.

They fear the law could complicate how stray-bullet cases are prosecuted and make it easier for those accused in the shooting deaths of their loved ones to walk away without being punished.

As attorney general, I would support civil lawsuits against out-of-state gun shops that flood New York's streets with illegal guns. We can find evidence for legal action by using New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's tactic of sending undercover agents to gather evidence against out-of-state gun dealers who knowingly violate gun laws.

I was proud to serve in President Clinton's Cabinet, where we achieved the landmark Safe Gun Agreement that required Smith & Wesson to change the design, distribution and marketing of handguns to make them safer and to help keep them away from children and criminals. It set the stage for a potentially global industrywide settlement and provided the template for codes of conduct, changing the way gun dealers and manufacturers would do business. It would have saved lives but was undone by the Bush administration and the Republican Congress when they passed a law that shielded the entire gun industry.

Some of my favorite childhood memories are of shooting a .22 caliber rifle with my dad and brothers. Hunters and sportsmen are not the problem when it comes to guns. It's not the lawful citizens who are plaguing our communities, but the creeps and criminals using guns to prey on us. I support the rights of gun owners. However, with those rights come responsibilities. The attorney general can reduce gun violence by keeping guns out of the hands of the wrong people.

As attorney general, Andrew Cuomo and Mark Green would lobby Albany to change laws. I will use existing laws to change New York. I will take action against violent crime and gun violence on Jan. 1 as your attorney general. Cuomo's plan to curb gun violence cannot start until new laws are passed, and Rochester can't wait that long. On day one in office, I will use the Attorney General's Organized Crime division to target the gang activity that is largely responsible for gun violence throughout New York's communities.

Dennis Alverson said he has received offers from New York City to settle a lawsuit the city brought against his Old Dominion Gun & Tackle shop in Danville.
No deal.
In Danville, Alverson bristles at the suggestion that he is a rogue dealer and notes he is in compliance with all state and federal regulations.
"If we were doing anything wrong, we would not be in business because [the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives] would shut us down," he said.

There stands Alverson like a stone wall. Rally 'round the Virginians!

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) City officials are considering buying back guns and instituting a youth curfew to help curb a surge in youth violence.

Details are still being hashed out, but the gun buyback plan would involve trading gift cards from local businesses for guns, no questions asked, the New Haven Register reported Sunday.

If posters warning criminals about prison time for gun crimes stop even one person from being killed or injured, they're worth it.

The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office recently announced it would reinstate Project Safe Neighborhoods.

The Prosecutor's Office is right to do so. The federally funded U.S. Department of Justice program aims to reduce gun crime in communities and, with the public's help, get guns off the streets.

Mayor Mike Bloomberg has made gun control a legacy issue of his second term in City Hall. Bloomberg has been so stridently anti-gun, in fact, that the National Rifle Association used its muscle with the Senate earlier this year to shoot down the nomination of Diana Taylor, Bloomberg’s companion, to head up the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. So why did City Councilman Andy Lanza (R-South Shore), a fellow Republican and one of the mayor’s most dependable allies, vote against two of the four gun-control bills that Bloomberg put forward this year?

With all due respect, allow me to be blunt: Gun buyback programs just don't work!

If you don't believe me, please read Youth Violence: A Report of the Surgeon General. This 2001 report was prepared by a consortium of top criminal justice experts from across this country. They carefully examined hundreds of scientific studies before drawing their conclusions. It represents the definitive work regarding the effectiveness of violence prevention programs in America.

In the report, gun buybacks are used to illustrate how some violence prevention programs can be politically popular, yet completely ineffective!

FLINT - The parents of a 9-year-old girl who was shot to death in her home Thursday are not cooperating with investigators trying to find out exactly what happened, officials said.

An attorney for the girl's father, however, said police need to let the family deal with its grief first.

"Their child just died," said Flint attorney David Grant.

Among the questions police want answered are:
Where did the gun come from?
Where was the gun stored, and did it have any kind of safety mechanisms?
Was the gun loaded when the children found it?

A would-be armed attacker was shot dead Thursday after he entered an apartment in the Potrero Hill housing project, according to police. Melvin Brown III, 28, was killed by an occupant of the apartment in the 1000 block of Connecticut Street, after he entered carrying an assault weapon. He was with a group, but the rest of the people ran off, and Brown entered the apartment alone, police spokeswoman Officer Maria Oropeza said Friday. Several shots were fired after Brown entered the unit, Oropeza said. When the fray was over, two of the unit’s residents had been hit, as well as Brown, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Oropeza said police believe the attack was targeted.
