The violence, coupled with a sharp rise in gun-related aggravated assaults in Seattle last year, have prompted Seattle officials to urge state legislators to pass new gun-control measures this session.

In Kent, police said the suspect had been in an altercation Saturday night at HD Hotspurs, a bar and restaurant more than a mile away. It was unclear how that incident was related, if at all, to the shooting.

A Schenectady man says it was self defense when he shot at two men who invaded his home. One of the intruders was killed, the other was injured.

Local attorney Paul Der Ohannesian says the only time you can use deadly physical force on someone who has invaded your home is if the intruder gives you solid reason to believe that they are going to hurt you.

Kende Moses is serving a 60-year sentence for something that is no longer a crime, his attorney says.

Moses was convicted of second degree-murder in 2004. Eleven months later, the Legislature amended the state's Castle Doctrine, legalizing what he did -- killing someone he believed was about to hurt or kill him, according to attorney Charles White.

Some observers say that the future of America rests within the values system of individual officers. That values system will dictate to their individual consciences whether they will enforce as their job what they know to be unethical laws, or give up the pension and credit union as they view such use of force as wrong and refuse to enforce unreasonable laws.

One of the clues to this is in dozens of officers in New Orleans gone missing prior to the gun confiscation there. I sure would like to hear from some of them, anonymously, of course. Write me on whether you knew in advance of the gun confiscation and if that played a role in your decision to bail.

Shortly after midnight, residents of the home in the 4000 block of Winder Highway heard a loud noise at the back door of their house, said Hall County Sheriff's Maj. Jeff Strickland.

When the homeowner went to check on the noise, a man wearing a ski mask and armed with a small-caliber handgun confronted him just outside the door, Strickland said.

He said the man fired several shots in the direction of the homeowner, who returned fire once, striking the man in the head.

Evidently Johnson got this amendment confused and thought it said, "The right to arm Bears". Some contend he should not play while under arrest.

Equally important to the Stern edict (that's not a play on words) is why? Why does anyone need to take firearms to a party or bar or happening -- or have six guns in his home?

Is it possible that Duncan Hunter's presidential campaign strategy – to win his party's nomination by painting himself as the most conservative of the Republican primary contenders – is already paying off?

Certainly those promoting the Alpine congressman think so, as they trumpet a straw poll this month showing that GOP officials in Arizona's most populous county prefer Hunter to big-name Republicans such as John McCain, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich.

Think about it, if you had an individual right to police protection, every time a crime was committed, the victim could bring suit against the agency providing police protection for failing to protect them from the crime. Obviously, that wouldn't work out very well, except for the trial lawyers.

In November, one of the clear messages voters sent Congress was to knock off the partisan gamesmanship and start finding common ground on real solutions. It's a message legislators in both parties should heed, and one that mayors have traditionally embraced. By putting aside ideology and focusing on facts, consensus becomes possible -- even on an issue as divisive as guns.

A British fashion tycoon and his girlfriend were tied up and robbed at gunpoint in a raid this weekend in their London home.

The Mail on Sunday reported that 56-year-old Robert De Keyser and his 22-year-old girlfriend ...were asleep when the robbers broke in at around 5 a.m.
De Keyser ... was tied up, gagged and hooded for two hours until Rae wiggled free and was able to raise the alarm, the report said.
The two men who robbed the house were reportedly very calm, claiming they were professionals. De Keyser said he has reason to believe they had stalked the house and carefully planned the robbery.
"Being confronted by a gunman in your own home is a terrifying experience," said De Keyser.

Schadenfreude!

More than two dozen national and regional groups of American citizens over the weekend called for a federal investigation of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. In a letter to Michael J. Sullivan, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the 26 organizations, through the auspices of the Liberty Coalition in Washington, D.C., called upon BATFE “to immediately investigate and prosecute New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his associates for conspiring to violate the federal Gun Control Act of 1968 as amended by the Brady Act of 1995.”

Quote from editorial-"Ms. Sinema's legislation, if it passes, could create a trap for the unsuspecting citizen. This bill, by its wording and omissions, establishes the presumption that if an individual is patrolling to detect illegal activity while in possession of a firearm, that the individual is not "bear[ing] arms in defense of himself or the state [per the Arizona Constitution]."

An engrossing exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art is the first show to document the colorful life and business career of Samuel Colt, the firearms manufacturer and shameless self-promoter. As expected, the extensive Colt firearms collections, donated to the museum by his widow, Elizabeth Hart Jarvis Colt, in 1905, draws the eye, but there is much else of interest here.

Richard B. Roper, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas; representatives from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF); and the firearms industry's non-profit trade association, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), today jointly announced a major campaign to reduce significantly the illegal straw purchases of firearms in the Northern District of Texas. The program, called Don't Lie for the Other Guy, was developed to raise public awareness that it is a serious crime to purchase a firearm for someone who cannot legally do so and to educate firearms dealers on how to better detect and deter potential straw purchases.
