Self-defense risky? Try the alternative

"Risky Shooting in Self-Defense"

"This was the bedwetting headline of the lead editorial in the August 14, 2005 edition of The Commercial Appeal in Memphis."

"The dead assailant certainly found the shooting to be risky, and the survivor who escaped probably believed that the victim posed too great a risk."

"But the point of the editorial was, of course, designed to convince us that even though self defense saved a kidnapped man's life, it is better to do nothing. Makes sense does it not?"

"No, it does not make sense."

"... It seems that The Commercial Appeal finds nothing risky for a victim to be held at gunpoint by armed robbers. After all, if we do nothing threatening to the assailant, we will convince him that we mean him no harm, right? ..." ...

"It's probably been about a year since most area hunters have fired their rifles. But with the gun deer season rapidly approaching, hunting experts say now's the time to dig it out and test it out."

"For avid hunters, Marathon County's shooting range is considered one of the best in the country. Now that fall is here, business is starting to pick up." ...

"And [Ken] Krueger [operations manager for the Marathon County Parks Department] says it's important to get out to a range before the deer hunting season gets underway. When not in use, the scope on the gun can shift, and dirt, dust, and rust can set in, causing it to malfunction." ...

"This bill creates a licensing system under which an individual is permitted to carry a concealed weapon under certain circumstances. The bill also makes certain changes in Wisconsin law to account for a federal law that requires the state to permit an individual who works as or who has retired from working as a federal, state, tribal, or local law enforcement officer in Wisconsin or in any other state to carry a concealed firearm under certain circumstances. In addition, the bill changes the law relating to background checks for handgun purchases to require the Department of Justice (DOJ) to determine whether a person seeking to purchase a handgun has been subject to an order or finding regarding his or her mental health that makes the purchase unlawful." ...

"The public would not be able to learn who can legally carry concealed weapons under a bill that would make Wisconsin the 47th state to allow average citizens to take guns on the street."

"In rolling out legislation Thursday that would allow people to carry concealed weapons, state Sen. Dave Zien (R-Eau Claire) and Rep. Scott Gunderson (R-Waterford) said they wanted to protect the privacy of permit holders."

"Making that information public could lead to police officers targeting permit holders in criminal investigations even if they did not have reason to suspect them, Zien and Gunderson said."

"'There are other states where it's public record and it's been just a holocaust,' Zien said." ...

"Would the public be safer if Don Heinke and 100,000 other Wisconsin residents had permits to carry handguns?"

"Of course, Republican lawmakers insisted Thursday as they revived a proposal that would allow state residents to carry concealed weapons in most public places-including churches and the state Capitol."

"Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle and gun control advocates said allowing more guns on the streets and in crowded areas would lead to more violence."

"But for his part, Heinke, 57, of Madison, who says diabetes and other illness have weakened him, said he would be among the first to get a permit."

"An incensed New Jersey sheriff called an Augusta County deputy a 'disgrace' for pulling over officers returning home from a Hurricane Katrina relief mission Sept. 18."

"Augusta Sheriff Randy Fisher and the Virginia State Police defend the stop because the New Jersey officers were traveling 95 mph with their lights flashing."

"'MPD Reinstate Peachey' read the stickers that have been passed around this month by an ex-girlfriend of Middleton Patrolman Robert Peachey."

"Peachey, 36, was cleared of domestic abuse charges brought by another former girlfriend last April. But he remains unpaid and off duty because Middleton police Chief Paul Armitage has revoked his license to carry a gun, a requirement of his job."

"Armitage, in court documents, cites not only the domestic dispute but two other incidents involving Peachey ... Armitage says those incidents make Peachey unsuitable to carry a gun." ...

"The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) concluded that the killing in April 2004 of 18 young Muslims, mostly from the same football team, in Songkhla's Saba Yoi district was due to 'police overreaction'."

"Was over-reaction much too mild a word to use?"

"Many had been shot in the back or in the back of their heads, which is seemingly inconsistent with the police claim of self-defence. Several were shot through the heart, but is such precise shooting likely ..."

"The police claim the young men tried to shoot. If so, were they such lousy shots that not even one policeman was killed or wounded?"

"Did all 18 of the men try to shoot and, if not, why were they, too, shot? Why weren't any southerners wounded, only killed?" ...

"Welcome to Florida, the Sunshine State. But avoid unnecessary arguments with locals. Starting Saturday, they may be more inclined to shoot you — or at least, in essence, that is the message from one national gun-control organization as a Florida law goes into effect empowering people who feel threatened in the street or anywhere else to use force, including a firearm, to protect themselves." ...

"'It's unlike any supposed self-defense statute in America,' said Peter Hamm, communications director for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. 'It empowers people who are on edge and have violent tendencies to presume a situation is dangerous to them that may not be.'" ...

"Make no bones about it: I am a liberal who believes that guns in themselves are not evil."

"Are you shocked? You shouldn’t be. Some conservatives like to present the cliché counterargument that 'guns don’t kill people; people kill people' in debates about gun control ..." ...

"This right, however, should not extend into the realm of automatic weapons. The gun must have a child safety feature, and it should be made illegal for that person to re-sell his or her gun to whomever he or she chooses because you never know what kind of psychotic individual might then be the owner of the gun." ...

"If anybody can make a good argument as to why such weapons should be legal, or what positive purpose they serve in our society (or what purpose at all), please e-mail me or write an editorial about it." ...

"After years of liberal hunting regulations targeting female elk, the uncontrollable herds are coming under control in many areas. In coming years, hunters can expect the huge supply of cow-hunting licenses to dwindle." ...

"Although the rifle has always been a big game rig, back in the 1920s or early 30s, an attempt was made to make shotguns suitable for big game hunting, at least at close range. Ammunition makers cranked out shotshells using a single round ball of lead. The punkin' ball shell was loaded to somewhat higher velocities than regular shotshells. The lead ball had the diameter and weight to kill many species of large game-provided it could be placed in the chest area. It was a common round prior to World War II, and hundreds of hunters in the bleak Great Depression era got their deer with the ol' punkin' ball."

"While it had the kinetic energy to kill a deer or black bear at ranges well under 100 yards, it lacked in the accuracy column ..." ...
