"The District of Columbia will end its four-month-long 'crime emergency' declaration on Monday."

"Fraternal Order of Police President Lou Cannon told News4, 'The main question is, was there ever a crime emergency in the first place?' "

Why more senior citizens are carrying guns

"Reversing longstanding patterns in the US, residents ages 65 and up are now the mostly likely of all citizens to own a gun. 'Personal gun ownership used to be highest among the middle-aged, but in our 2000 and 2002 survey, it was highest among the 65-plus age group." ...

"In Arizona alone, the state's Department of Public Safety reports that more than 31,000 residents between the ages of 50 and 69 - including 6,200 women - have concealed-weapons permits. It's easy to understand why, says Mr. Batory. 'Just read the papers. Older people are getting tired of being picked on by savages.' "
 

CA: Plead for end to gun shows

"California has some of the strictest rules nationwide for gun shows nationwide. Guns at shows cannot be sold over the counter. Attendees can pick up purchased guns only through a licensed store after a 10-day waiting period."

"Whether there is evidence that the show floods the surrounding community with guns is immaterial to many lawmakers, who simply find such gun shows immoral."

-------
Are these the same politicians who scream that you can't legislate morality in any other venue?

Considering that less than two percent of criminals get guns at gun shows, these protests are just another attempt to avoid the root causes of crime: a pathetic, government run education system, a culture that perpetuates the victim mentality and a society that shies away from personal responsibility in favor of government intervention.

We are aware that there are Democrats who support gun rights, even some who actually mean it and do understand the Second Amendment. But even those far too few Democrats are still socialists in far too many other political leanings and thus invite fair and insightful ridicule -- especially when it's this funny.

If you're a Democrat who truly understands the Second Amendment and none of the positions described in this humorous editorial depict positions you hold, well, then, you're not really a Democrat and should probably take the World's Smallest Political Quiz to find out what your true political leanings really are.

"Ah, the time-honored debate over what should be public record and what should be private. We’re in the middle of it."

"The latest tiff concerns whether the identity of concealed-carry handgun permit-holders should be public record."

"Gun-rights advocates say no, because the element of surprise would be lost. Concealed carriers need to be anonymous. Otherwise, criminals could check on who has a permit and attack only people without them."

"This scenario assumes that the criminal knows his or her intended victim. If so, he or she probably knows whether the individual carries a handgun, anyway."

Amendment 5 to the U.S. Constitution: "...nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb..."

Meanwhile, here's a man who defended his home against armed assailants working for the state trooper. The first trial was declared a "mistrial", so they are trying him again.

This is not to say he's innocent, or that the "raid" wasn't justified. It's simply a reminder that the Courts can and will try you twice, or three times if that's what it takes to convict you. That is the way it is now.

"It just could be that, in many parts of the South, and also in the West, the thought that the folks in the house a criminal desires to break into just might have guns on hand acts more than a little in the way of a deterrent. Towns in the South that have passed laws either mandating or encouraging people to keep firearms in their homes have been towns where crime rates have dropped significantly. A man once said 'an armed society is a polite society.' I wonder if the good people of Chicago, both black and white, had the real ability to defend their homes and families, and the gang-bangers realized that, what that fact would do to the crime rate in the country's murder capital."

Police say an Albuquerque resident apparently interrupted a burglary and ended up shooting the intruder.

Sergeant Pat Apodaca says it happened last night in Albuquerque's north valley.

A man was visiting his neighbor when he thought he heard something at his home next door. He investigated and found his door unlocked.

Apodaca says the intruder opened the door and that's when a fight began.

The intruder had a pipe and struck the resident, but the neighbor intervened. That allowed the victim to get a gun he had in the house and fire two shots, hitting the intruder at least once.

Apodaca says the intruder underwent surgery at an Albuquerque hospital.

"James Scott could get the death penalty if he is convicted of the slaying of Knight and wounding of Knight's partner. His trial is expected to last about two weeks."

"The central issue in the case is expected to be whether Scott knew or should have known that he was firing into a police vehicle as he ran away from a crash."

"Scott is claiming self-defense, and his lawyer plans to argue that his client thought he was being chased by people who were not police officers and intended to harm him."

It was a peacetime army's worst nightmare - a pickup truck loaded with hooded gunmen appearing out of the night, spraying the military camp with bullets and killing four soldiers on guard duty.

Minutes later, the raiders had broken into the weapons depot of the Royal Thai Army's engineering battalion in southern Narathiwat province, and made off with more than 100 weapons. Among the haul: M-16 assault rifles and handguns, carried away in fertiliser sacks.

It was over in 30 minutes.

The attackers seemed familiar with the camp's layout and officials said they were helped by 'insiders'.

But only police and the military are responsible enough to keep guns out of bad guys' hands.
