"I owned a Ruger Mini-14 when in college. Briefly. I paid a friend $300 for a gently used stainless steel model with a walnut stock and flash suppressor. The gun was heaven. And that was the problem. I couldn’t shoot just one bullet at a time. It begged to be fired frequently and fast. I couldn't help emptying the [paltry] five-round magazine in as many seconds. It was an addiction I couldn't afford on a student's salary. The least expensive ammo I could find at the time was $0.40 a round and I quickly spent as much to feed the beast as the rifle cost to begin with. Less than three months later I sold the gun for $280. Now I want it back." ...

NY: Coyotes Beware Of Educators With Air Horns
Submitted by: Anonymous

There are no comments on this story
Post Comments | Read Comments

 
FULL TEXT BELOW:

Make the coyotes leap out of their fur and scurry off into the woods. That's the idea behind giving air horns to some staffers in Rye schools.

Parent Susan Hinson says air horns coupled with education should help keep the children safe.

"We have talked about the coyotes," Hinson told WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams.

Adams asked, "What have you told them?"

Hinson answered, "To wave their arms, to yell, to not run away from them… back up slowly."

The deployment of air horns was in the works long before last week's attacks in Rye Brook, where police shot a rabid, mangy coyote.

In June, two young girls were attacked right in Rye.

KABA Note: How about teaching them to wave their arms and yell "Mommy, Daddy! Shoot the bad doggie!"?
 

Crime Rates Continued to Fall as Firearm Sales Soared in '09

"The National Shooting Sports Foundation is reporting that, even as firearms and ammunition experienced record sales in 2009, the nation's crime rates continued to fall, according to new report from the FBI."

"'During 2009, violent crime declined for the third straight year, with an estimated 5.3 percent drop from 2008 figures. Homicides were down 7.3 percent. The FBI statistics undermine a favorite argument of anti-gun groups and some mainstream media that 'more guns equal more crime,' especially when you consider that the decrease in violent crime in 2009 occurred at the same time that firearm sales were surging.'" ...

"For the third consecutive year, the gun prohibitionist lobby has been proven wrong in its alarmist predictions that more guns in more hands will result in more violent crime, as crime rates have fallen again."

"According to the FBI’s 2009 crime report, released Monday, homicides dropped 7.3 percent from 2008, aggravated assault declined 4.2 percent and forcible rape was down 2.6 percent. Yet, according to the [NSSF], 2009 was a boom year for gun sales. It also appears that the number of concealed carry permits and licenses continued to rise across the nation, apparently refuting predictions that this would also contribute to a rise in violent crime. Quite the opposite is happening, according to the FBI data." ...

"In the 15 months since Tennessee handgun-carry permit holders got the right to go armed in state parks, two gun-related incidents have been reported at state facilities and neither resulted in violence, officials said."

"'I am pleasantly surprised,' said Tennessee Environment and Conservation Commissioner Jim Fyke, who in 2009 lobbied against the ... bill. 'I believed that it was not a good idea.'"

"The legislation, which took effect in late June 2009, allowed permit holders to go armed in all 53 state parks and 81 state natural areas. The bill included local parks but allowed local governments to opt out. Many, such as Chattanooga, did just that."

"Fyke said the law 'has not been disruptive' for the most part." ...

"Applying for concealed weapon permits has been the trendy thing to do recently, especially in the state of Washington. Unlike many other states, including the state of Oregon, Washington requires no mandatory training, instruction or test. Washington does not even provide written information in the form of a pamphlet advising the 'carrier' of the do's, don'ts or responsibilities associated with a carry permit."

"... Do not misunderstand me, I completely support the Second Amendment, ... but ..." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: Another "Big But" Second Amendment supporter. He gives himself away in the first sentence by calling permit applications "trendy". I calculate that I spent over 40 hours in the process of deciding to get a permit. I discussed it with my friends and family, looked at storage and safety issues, researched the use of deadly force and just plain gave a good hard think about whether I would be willing to use deadly force against a human being. Then I spent another at least 40 hours and over $1000 researching guns, purchasing my carry pistol and holster, then buying ammo and range time for testing various kinds of ammunition. I spend at least $100 and 10 hours a month in ongoing practice, plus getting books and DVDs on defensive situations. My choice to apply for a permit had nothing to do with being "trendy".

"A world with no guns in it would be ideal, but under our laws, you can’t deprive a citizen of his right to own a gun if he’s not considered a threat. The judge acknowledged that Brek doesn't pose a threat ... but said the gun collection would still be confiscated ..." ...
