More cops investigating illegal guns, better rewards for tips about dirty firearms, and extra surveillance cameras to catch gun-toting bad guys.

Those are the basics of mayoral candidate Chaka Fattah's plan to fight illegal guns, which he will announce today at Mercy Hospital of Philadelphia.

"The majority of guns used to kill people in Philadelphia and around the nation are illegal," said Fattah, a Democratic congressman. "We think this is a natural place to start."

LOCAL police patrolled without their guns in Mexico's tough border city of Tijuana on Saturday after soldiers disarmed them to check if the weapons had been used in drug gang crimes.

In the latest stage of a national crackdown on drug-related violence, more than 4,000 soldiers, sailors, federal and state police this week poured into Tijuana, where some members of the poorly paid municipal police force are suspected of helping drug hitmen in a war between rival gangs.

It was March in Lexington, Ky., and still miserably cold outside. It was only marginally warmer in the cramped room where I found myself at 8 a.m. on a Saturday. I was there for a class that would grant me a concealed deadly weapons license, which seemed like an impressive responsibility. The atmosphere did not reflect this gravity. The place was long and narrow and full of clutter. Tables and chairs and people were crammed amidst plastic deer that were targets for bow hunters.

The gun control debate moved on to a new front at the weekend when NSW police minister John Watkins called for "tougher import regulations for replica and toy weapons and uniform laws to prevent them crossing state borders." Somehow NSW lawmakers have got the idea that fake guns are just as dangerous as real ones.

As long as our government is administered for the good of the people, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to us the rights of person and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending; and so long as it is worth defending, a patriotic militia will cover it with an impenetrable ægis. . . but a million of armed freemen, possessed of the means of war, can never be conquered by a foreign foe.

Many Utah residents are at odds with the state's highest court over whether concealed guns should be allowed on university campuses... .....a new statewide poll shows the majority of 400 respondents think concealed weapons permit holders should not be allowed to carry guns on campus.... The Deseret Morning News/KSL-TV poll shows 64 percent of those surveyed think guns should definitely or probably not be allowed on campus.

Reader Tdoff writes: "So what? The majority also thought slavery and incinerating Jews was a good idea. We live in a Republic, not a Democracy. Scumbag tactics from the media"

Ralph Bellon of Vancleave is leading a group of county residents who have appealed to the Jackson County Board of Supervisors to rescind or change the wording of a 2006 ordinance that limits the discharge of firearms in rural parts of the county. The ordinance prohibits firing a firearm or other weapon in or within 150 yards of a residence, building, campsite, developed recreation site or occupied dwelling. It passed 4-0 on a motion by Supervisor John McKay in July.

The Journal News releasing the names of the pistol permit holders was very irresponsible. For what reason could you possibly believe you should do this? If you have a problem with the pistol permit record-keeping in Rockland, Westchester and Putnam counties, take it up with elected officials there, not law-abiding gun owners.

Board members are expected to add some of their own ideas and may delete others before adopting a joint package in about a month.
