THE American constitution declares that �the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.� Nor, it seems, should it be suspended, even for a computer upgrade. At least, that's what many Pennsylvania gunshop-owners and hunters think.
 

CA: Crank caller tying up 911 dispatchers, cops with fake emergencies

"Over and over and over again, a man calling himself "Nomar" has phoned the 911 emergency dispatch center in Vallejo. He sounds desperate, often slurring his speech as he reports that he has overdosed on drugs, engaged in a suicide try, or been involved in a serious traffic accident."

"But he doesn't need help - at least not the kind he asks for."

"The man is a serial crank caller, police say, and over the past few months he has phoned in some 2,000 alleged emergencies to the dispatch center ... tying up lines and summoning cops and firefighters to locations where they find no one to help or rescue." ...

"'If he's tying up the system,' Powell said, 'that's one less person that can help someone who really needs it.'" ...

WASHINGTON The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
(ATF) reminds federal firearms licensees that effective Sept. 1 they must use the revised
Firearms Transaction Record Part I Over-the-Counter (ATF Form 4473).
In the immediate aftermath of the tragic events at Virginia Tech in April, many
questions arose about whether the person responsible was prohibited under federal law
from possessing a firearm and how the shooter passed the background check required
before purchasing the two firearms used, said ATF Acting Director Michael J. Sullivan.
ATF is clarifying this form in an effort to make it clear that any person who has been
found by a court board or other lawful authority to be a danger to self or others is

German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble dropped plans to ease gun-control laws, bowing to complaints within the ruling coalition that the move threatened public safety. "Safety comes first,' Schaeuble said in a faxed statement today. The government will give "absolute priority' to security concerns. Schaeuble had sought to reverse an increase in the minimum age for possessing major firearms to 21 from 18, passed by former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder after a shooting rampage at a high school in eastern Germany killed 18 people in April 2002.
 

PA: Computer Upgrade Halts Pa. Gun Sales

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- State police on Sunday began a three-day upgrade of Pennsylvania's gun sales background check computer system, putting firearms sales in the commonwealth on hold for that period.

State police spokesman Jack Lewis said the shutdown of the system began at 6 p.m. Sunday as planned, and the system would be down until 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

A panel Gov. Ed Rendell asked to study the issue suggested either a transition that would not interrupt service or shutdowns in October or early January. Rendell said those ideas either conflicted with other scheduled computer work or were too costly, but he said the shutdown would last about a day shorter than previously announced.

The SKS rifle is a simple gas operated auto loader with some very strong attributes in it�s favor. For all it�s glory and simplicity few rifles have been surrounded by more confusion than the humble SKS. I have owned both Russian and Chinese versions, with my latest addition being a superb Yugoslavian model.

The Ilion Fish and Game Club, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, has a long tradition as one of the largest sporting clubs in the area. It's a big achievement, especially since other clubs in Herkimer County have gone down, said club member Dale Lewis. The club, which started in 1907, was honored last month by the Ilion Village Board of Trustees. The board presented the club a proclamation in honor of the centennial celebration.
 

Switzerland: Swiss Expulsion Proposal Draws Criticism

The campaign poster was blatant in its xenophobic symbolism: Three white sheep kicking out a black sheep over a caption that read "for more security." The message was not from a fringe force in Switzerland's political scene but from its largest party.
The nationalist Swiss People's Party is proposing a deportation policy that anti-racism campaigners say evokes Nazi-era practices. Under the plan, entire families would be expelled if their children are convicted of a violent crime, drug offenses or benefits fraud.
The party is trying to collect the 100,000 signatures needed to force a referendum on the issue. If approved in a referendum, the law would be the only one of its kind in Europe.

From the day he took over the Duke lacrosse rape case, Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong charged forward with a strident determination that the guilty would end up in jail. Ultimately, the since-disgraced former prosecutor only succeeded at putting himself behind bars.
Nifong was sentenced Friday to a single day in jail, having been held in criminal contempt of court for lying to a judge during his pursuit of rape charges against the three falsely accused lacrosse players.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office investigated a shooting in Canutillo Saturday morning. It happened on the 800 block of Anthony Road early Saturday morning, when deputies said a 21-year-old man attempted to cause damage or commit a theft. The woman who lived in the home called her father, who lives a few houses away. He showed up with a handgun and confronted the 21-year old outside. Deputies said the father fired a warning shot first, and fired at the man when the 21-year old charged after him. The 21-year-old was hit in the chest. He was taken to the hospital. Deputies have not released the names of anyone involved. They said charges are pending.

In 1949, New York State led the charge in hunter safety, installing hunter safety courses, which have since become mandatory for hunters looking to procure their license. This is something that the Falcon Sportsmen's Club has been an active supporter for many years, hosting numerous classes on hunting safety every year. The classes are done by instructors, Mike Indelicato, secretary of the club, said. They keep all the records and everything. We provide the place to have these classes. We've been hosting these for as long as I can remember.
 

Recent Study On Media Bias Shows Need For Gun Owners To Speak Out

The Culture and Media Institute (CMI) recently released a report entitled The Media Assault on the Second Amendment. Its findings will not surprise you.

According to the study, in the first seven months of 2007, the three major networks ran some 650 stories on firearm-related homicides, yet only two covering the use of guns for self-defense. Considering guns are used three to five times more often for self-defense than to commit a crime, this disproportion is staggering.

CMI went on to report:

"The media first broached the urban crime wave immediately following a March 9 court decision, Parker v. District of Columbia, which struck down D.C.'s handgun ban. ABC, NBC, CNN, the New York
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
We'll take one step at a time, and the first is necessarily - given the political realities - very modest. We'll have to start working again to strengthen the law, and then again to strengthen the next law and again and again. Our ultimate goal, total control of handguns, is going to take time. The first problem is to slow down production and sales. Next is to get registration. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and ammunition (with a few exceptions) totally illegal. Pete Shields, founder of Handgun Control, Inc., New Yorker Magazine, June 26, 1976, pg. 53
