"Comanche County District Attorney Robert Schulte says charges won't be filed against a Lawton businessman who admitted to shooting another man in the face last month." ...

"... Rayl finally did come to the sheriff's department more than a month after the shooting to answer questions. As it turns out, Rayl told investigators that he was protecting his life. Sheriff Stradley said, 'It was a situation where individual came on his land in a threatening manner, came toward him in a threatening manner and the individual shot twice to get him to stay back.' The sheriff says Ricky Stamper continued to charge toward Rayl, so Rayl shot him in the face." ...

"Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been a forceful advocate on a number of issues, to the surprise of many New Yorkers and the dismay of some. But there is no major issue on which he has been stronger than gun control. The mayor has testified before Congress several times advocating sensible regulation on the way firearms are bought and sold. He's even had the city sue shady gun dealers in other states whose wares came into New York City via the nation's vast gun-trafficking network."

"This week, he was in Harrisburg, Pa., to urge the Pennsylvania State Legislature to inject at least some sanity into that state's gun laws. ..." ...

"Sen. Dianne Feinstein has frozen a bill that she says would gut federal agents' ability to shut down or severely penalize reckless gun dealers."

"'This legislation would make it difficult, if not impossible, for the ATF to penalize gun dealers who have broken the law and to prevent rogue dealers from continuing to sell guns,' said Feinstein ..." ...

"The National Rifle Association, which supports the bill, fired back."

"'Dianne Feinstein told '60 Minutes' that if she could get every man and woman to turn their guns in, she would,' NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said Thursday. 'As a supporter of Draconian gun-control and gun-ban measures, it is not surprising that the senator would stand in the way of good public policy.'" ...

"Kudos for the Sept. 16 front-page story, 'Hidden demons shatter a bright life.' However, not mentioned is the major vector of firearms, not only in unintentional or homicide injury, but in suicide attempts and completions."

"It is not a matter of banning firearms but of assuring responsible effective storage, safety lock selection and use."

"Independent research confirms that programs such as the NRA's Eddie Eagle just do not have any empirical evidence of working." ...

"Harvard's School of Public Health recently confirmed earlier studies that changes in household firearm ownership over time are associated with significant change in rates of suicides for men, women and children. ..." ...

"I was shocked and saddened to read about the recent plot to attack Green Bay East High School by three youths armed with an arsenal of homemade bombs and 10 guns."

"I was even more dismayed to hear the typical liberal media response blaming lax gun control laws and the NRA for making weapons too easy to get."

"Clearly, as even the most liberal, latte-drinking, tree-hugging, gay-loving Democrat must agree, the problem is not too many guns, but too few."

"If every teacher at that school were armed with a high-powered assault rifle, those juvenile delinquents would not stand a chance." ...

"School shootings, church shootings, airport shootings, workplace shootings. . . mass takeovers and shootings nearly anywhere can be stopped in progress."

"Gee, Longenecker, how can you make such a statement?"

"Easy."

"Crimes such as the Platt Canyon High School shooting can be over in moments. In taking hostages, the situation can be protracted, and the criminals largely in control of the thing ..."

"What do you do when it winds up playing out their way and ending in suicide, as they often do? It means that the criminal was in control all along."

"It means a missed opportunity in there to stop the situation from escalating. If only you will see it." ...

"Boone County Sheriff Dwayne Carey wants a piece of a $1 million police training facility and firing range the city plans to build."

"City officials and Police Chief Randy Boehm aren't so sure that’s a good idea. They argue that dual ownership could lead to administrative problems and a larger, more expensive facility than planned."

"During a meeting yesterday, Carey told county commissioners and City Manager Bill Watkins that such a move would help ensure that sheriff's deputies would have a permanent place to train."

"Now, the department uses a privately owned range near Finger Lakes State Park north of Columbia." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

What is wrong with this picture? Kill someone with a gun, you go to prison. Kill them with your car, it's a 2-year circuit court misdemeanor.

A 58-year old-woman runs into the back of a 50-year-old man on a motorcycle and the man dies. The woman gets 5 years probation, plus must pay $8,600 restitution.

A 20-year-old man runs a stop sign and kills a 20-year-old woman. He gets 90 days in jail, 5 years probation and must pay $12,950 restitution.

Does Judge Judith A. Fullerton think it is OK to kill someone with a car, but not with a gun? Dead is dead.

"One stipulation is that hunting must be supervised by an adult and the young hunter must have passed a certified hunter safety course." ...

"On September 1st, the 6th District Court of Appeals ruled against Bruce Beatty in a 2-1 opinion."

"Beatty had been arrested in Toledo for violating a park rule against concealed carry ... Beatty argued that the park ban was in conflict with State of Ohio law permitting concealed carry in Parks, since he had received a concealed handgun license. The City argued that it had the authority under Home Rule to ban all weapons in its Parks."

"After his conviction in the lower courts, Beatty appealed to the higher court. The 6th District Court of Appeals ruled that, despite an explicit statement of intent by the Ohio legislature, Ohio's CHL law was not a general law and upheld the conviction." ...

... "Here, among the great hills and forests of Indiana, there is serenity and friendliness. Is there fear in the minds of Hoosiers elsewhere? How terrible it is to believe that guns are needed in our state parks. How frightful it must be to contemplate the need for a gun in our State Office Building, in branches of the motor vehicle bureau or in any place of worship in Indiana."

"Imagine that you are visiting Indianapolis and reading the newspaper ... You might come to the conclusion that Indiana is a State of Fear."

"Is this the image we want to project? Is this how we will attract families and firms to Indiana? Do not blame the news media or demand that they focus on more positive stories. Let's attend to reality." ...

"Four years ago, in the race for governor of Georgia, the Republican underdog, Sonny Perdue, wanted the endorsement of the National Rifle Association -- and, in order to get it, he wanted to shoot it out with the Democrat incumbent, Roy Barnes."

"Perdue challenged Barnes and a representative of the National Rifle Association to a skeet shooting contest. The winner between Barnes and Perdue would receive the NRA endorsement."

"The NRA didn't take Perdue up on his challenge, and Barnes got the endorsement that year. But Perdue won the election, anyway. This year, Perdue's quest for the NRA endorsement was no contest."

"'Governor Perdue has been a leader in defending Second Amendment rights,' said ... Wayne LaPierre ..." ...
