Not even triple-bypass surgery has kept Rita Roherty from the shotgun shooting that has been her life's passion. The 82-year-old great-grandmother underwent surgery last year, and then recovered to win a bronze medal in the women's shooting division of the Badger State Games in June. She hit 91 of 100 clay pigeons to take third place in the competition, three years after winning the gold.

A Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist has come up with a less-toxic explosive that has potential uses in hunting and in military ammunition.
Chemist My Hang Huynh developed a new type of primary explosive, which are the explosives that, for example, ignite the main charges in a bullet or conventional bomb. The lab owns three patents. Huynh said the new explosive is cleaner, safer and less expensive to produce than traditional lead azide and lead styphnate primary explosives, which have been in use since 1907.

Message board says animal clawed mare in Livingston Co.

A posting on the Michigan Gun Owners online message boards has sparked a rumor that there is a new predator in Livingston County - a cougar.

Animal control officers from Livingston and Ingham counties, as well as the state's Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Division, however, said they have received no reports of cougars in the area.

Livingston County sheriff's officials also said no calls about cougars attacking have been reported to their department.

According to the Web posting, a resident in the county's northwestern area bordering Ingham County on Lovejoy Road apparently shot the cougar after it attacked the resident's mare.

Robert Culhane, the beleaguered former acting village police chief who is the target of a criminal investigation, ordered "a few" guns for personal use through the village so he could get them at a better price, his lawyer says. Lawyer F. Hollis Griffin said police ordering personal guns through municipal bidding is a commonplace practice, not just in Tuxedo Park, but throughout New York.

SHANGHAI, China - For the second time in a week, Chinese authorities have ordered a mass slaughter of dogs to curb a rabies outbreak.

Officials in the eastern city of Jining plan to kill all dogs within three miles of areas where rabies has been found, the official Xinhua News Agency said Friday.

Reader Inadequate50 asks: Do you think that a government would be able to beat dogs to death in front of their owners in a free country where the population is armed?

It appears, by reading the article linked in the headline, that we have had a problem with the legal system and Self-Defense for quite a few years now.

The article is entitled 'Documentary Proof of Self-Defense', and was found on the Library of Congress website titled 'American Memory'.

The article first appeared in 'The Century'; a popular quarterly of the period. It was in Volume 33, Issue 1, Nov 1886.

"...In law, the term, (Self-Defense), embraces and describes all the rights conferred upon the individual to protect by his own acts and agencies his property or his person against some in-jury unlawfully attempted to be inflicted by another...."

It appears good so far, right? Keep reading....

Kansans are lining up to buy guns and learn how to shoot them. “Usually summers in the gun business are deader than a doornail, but we’re having a record year,” said Jeff Howlett, owner of Kansas Firearms Specialties in Tonganoxie. Much of the increased interest in guns is because people are arming themselves to take advantage of the new Kansas concealed carry gun law, Howlett said. “We’re selling a lot of pistols,” he said.

For the last five months, a 252-foot billboard near Fenway Park has been warning Boston motorists that Maine and its lax gun-control laws help supply local criminals with their weapons.

Even before the billboard went up, Boston officials had been pointing fingers north, saying that Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont must stop what they said had become a pipeline of illegal guns flowing into the city.

“I never in my wildest dreams thought we’d have to have a gun policy, but there are a lot more people who bear arms than ever before. These were licensed guns. Some of the kids go down to Maryland and hunt on Mondays, their off day. So we just put a policy in place involving their responsibility with guns. We’re actually working through all the legal ramifications, but we don’t want them having them."
 

MI: Homicides in Detroit up 17 percent

Among the hundreds of weapons that police collected in church parking lots as part of a citywide gun buyback this week were many that apparently hadn't been fired in years or even decades.

But other guns in the city are being fired at alarming rates, pushing homicides in Detroit up 17 percent this year and nonfatal shootings up 27 percent.

The Motor City became known as the "Murder City" after it logged 714 homicides in 1974. But crime in Detroit decreased throughout the 1990s, as it did in the United States as a whole. The number of homicides fell from 615 in 1991 to 396 in 2000.

However, the population has also fallen since then, and Detroit continues to have one of the highest per capita murder rates in the nation.

Teenagers and guns can be a dangerous mix. But don't tell that to the Ohio Rifle and Pistol Association Juniors. For a second year in a row, the ORPA Juniors have turned their love of shooting into a national championship, bringing home a gold medal in precision air rifle and finishing in the top 10 in both sporter rifle and pistol. The NRA/Pyramid national junior air gun team championship, sponsored by the National Rifle Association, was held in Redmond, Ore., July 5-9 and featured teams and clubs from all over the United States with members that include collegiate shooters and Olympians.

Sibling rivalry is expected in sports, but what about in trapshooting between older brother and younger sister?

Hayden and Heather Essenburg of Holland have competed for a couple years and recently qualified for the Scholastic Clay Target Program's (SCTP) National Trapshooting Championships.

Heather, 11, used her brother's Browning 12-gauge shotgun to pick off 77-of-100 clay targets to win her second consecutive girls' rookie title (fifth grade and under) at the state finals last month in Mason.

It was a situation that could have had dire consequences.

Instead, three Vernon teens were returned to their parents after getting a major scare and a stern lecture from the RCMP.

Police responded to a complaint of a man who appeared to be high on drugs, waving a gun in the Landing Plaza just before 11 p.m. Thursday night.

RCMP responded with two members, who saw the male suspect crouched between vehicles and with a gun in his hand.

The members got out, pulled their pistols and ordered the suspect to drop his gun.

The accused thanked the jury, the gallery applauded and even the prosecutor was not disappointed when Karen Brown was found not guilty of murder, writes Natasha Wallace.

THE facts of the case were simple: moments after the security guard Karen Brown shot dead a robber who had beaten her with knuckledusters, she staggered dazed and confused into a hotel, her head "bubbling" with blood and the gun dangling from her hand. "I have been robbed," she said. "Call the police. I think I killed him."

FIREARMS provided by the Australian Government to police and military forces in Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands are used in most gun-related crimes in those countries.

Sydney University associate professor Philip Alpers said his research implicated Australian firearms in almost all shooting murders in PNG's troubled Southern Highlands province.

He said the Australian FN-FAL self-loading semi-automatic rifle was the favoured weapon of criminal gangs in rural PNG and Solomon Islands.
