Friends, family and fellow Department of Sanitation workers gathered for the funeral of Damon Allen.

The pistol-packing Harlem grandma who grabbed a registered .357 magnum and blasted a mugger is a steady shot who has won awards for her marksmanship. "I never thought I would have to use my gun on a person," said Margaret Johnson, who has at least a dozen shooting trophies in her apartment and once shot a hole in a quarter from 30 feet away. "I feel bad, but it was his choice," Johnson, 57, said of the mugger she wounded. "I think he's stupid. I think it's really wrong to take advantage of the disabled."

He was a gun trafficker.

Finkley would go into a gun store, buy a number of handguns, then resell them to members of a Philadelphia-based Jamaican drug gang.

CA: Steven Greenhut: Police rush to shoot, but ask us to withhold judgment

Late last month, Huntington Beach police officers unloaded 18 bullets into 19-year-old Ashley MacDonald in a city park after, they say, she moved toward them with a pocket knife. The shooting has understandably sparked protests and countywide debate over when police officers should be allowed to use deadly force.

I'm infuriated not just by the senseless nature of the killing, but by the arrogance of the police agencies, which refuse to talk frankly about the appropriate use of deadly force. The police department and sheriff's department, which investigates these shootings for HBPD, say we shouldn't second-guess the officers or rush to judgment before the investigation is complete.

The first time that you will really see lawmakers engage in action this fall is when the House holds a day-long informal debate Tuesday, Sept. 26, on crime issues.

This event will be an attention-grabber. The House will convene a "committee of the whole" to debate and take informal straw votes on proposals to stem crime and violence in Pennsylvania. Guns will be a big topic of conversation.

Investigators were trying to determine how a loaded handgun got into a cellblock inside a busy downtown courthouse, the first serious security breach in at least 10 years, authorities said. A cleaning contractor found the .25-caliber semiautomatic pistol under a wad of paper in a cell toilet at the District of Columbia Superior Court on Friday, said Steve Conboy, the U.S. marshal for the court. Conboy, who oversees courthouse security, said he does not know how the small pistol was smuggled into the building. "We're not ruling anything out," he said. "At this point everybody's a suspect."

NY: New York self-defense shooting underscores need for private United States firearm ownership, says gun law expert

"Somebody tried to mug me, and I shot him," said New Yorker Margaret Johnson after a perpetrator ripped off her necklace, choked her and tried to grab her purse, reported Saturday's New York Times. This incident offers a graphic illustration of the need for gun ownership on the part of law-abiding American citizens. It shows up the stupidity of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and others like him who oppose a loosening of firearm laws and seek a strengthening of such regulations. Regardless of their intentions, the gun grabbers' campaign against gun ownership on the part of law-abiding citizens and against the firearm industry in effect is an attack on both personal and public safety. Guns save lives. Guns protect the innocent.
 

SC: Writer disputes 'indisputable' arms claims

Daniel claims that South Carolina's Law Abiding Citizens Self-Defense Act caused the recent declines in violent crime and that this conclusion is "indisputable." Sadly, Daniel is mistaken on both counts.

Daniel's claims are misleading, dishonest and, in the end, empirically unsound. I am neither a gun control advocate nor personally opposed to gun ownership in America, but I am opposed to the kind of unobjective, unresearched partisan propaganda that Daniel has offered as "indisputable."

Ed. Note: The writers figures are statistically unsound, but I though you might appreciate the nonsense math he tries to use to make his point.

No one knows how the Czech ended up in Salinas.

Worn and battle-weary, the Cold War veteran had slipped quietly into the U.S., and in only a year, detectives in Monterey County were working overtime to track the foreigner's deadly trail.

Early in 2001, detectives found tell-tale bullet casings after a shooting. In June, more spent casings at another shooting scene showed the outlaw's crimes had escalated to attempted murder.

A nurse returning from work discovered an intruder armed with a hammer in her home and strangled him with her bare hands, police said.

Officer Katherine Kent said homicide detectives have determined that Kuhnhausen killed Haffey in self-defense.

(Perpetrator) Haffey, about 5-foot-9 and 180 pounds, had convictions including conspiracy to commit aggravated murder, robbery, drug charges and possession of burglary tools. Neighbors said (Nurse) Kuhnhausen's size 5-foot-7 and 260 pounds may have given her an advantage.

Submitter comment: Who needs a gun? I sure wouldn't want to tangle with this woman.

Weapons were seized Saturday from the Northside home of a gun dealer who was arrested three days earlier.
Barry S. Craig, 43, was taken into custody Wednesday on a $1 million bond, charged by the Marion County prosecutor's office with criminal recklessness, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.
..
IPD started investigating Craig when officers were patrolling in that block Wednesday. An officer had finished checking a man on a bicycle when Craig, carrying a gun in his right hand, walked up behind the officer, police said. Craig cursed at the officer, who called for help and had Craig arrested, police said.

"Susan Kuhnhausen, 51, then ran to a neighbor's house Wednesday night to report the intruder, identified as Edward Dalton Haffey, 59, whose body was found by police."

"An autopsy by the Multnomah County medical examiner determined the cause of death to be strangulation, said Officer Catherine Kent, a spokeswoman for the Portland Police Bureau."

"Homicide detectives said they have determined it was self defense. They said a prosecutor is investigating but that they do not expect the case to go to a grand jury."

"Haffey, a convicted felon with a long police record, was dead when police arrived."

Americans were robbed and victimized by gun violence at greater rates last year than the year before, even though overall violent and property crime reached a 32-year low, the Justice Department said Sunday.

Experts said these increases buttress reports from the FBI and many mayors and police chiefs that violent crime is beginning to rise after a long decline. Bush administration officials expressed concern but stressed that it was too soon to tell if a new upward trend in violence had begun.
