A judge yesterday halted drugs and firearms charges against 21 people because the police staged a fake arrest of an undercover cop. Justice Simon France ruled that the police's actions were "a fundamental and serious abuse of the court's processes".

Milwaukee Representative Jon Richards is already working on a law to stop private gun sales to anyone with a restraining order against them.

"We need to close the loopholes that allow domestic abusers like Radcliffe Haughton to get guns, to commit horrific acts of violence. Whenever you have a domestic abuser and guns together, that's a lethal combination and we need to make sure we're protecting victims," he tells TODAY'S TMJ4's Jesse Ritka.

It didn't go unnoticed by the National Rifle Association that, during last week's presidential debate, President Barack Obama expressed support for renewing the assault weapons ban.

"I believe in the Second Amendment," Obama said in response to a question about gun violence. "Part of [the solution] is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced, but part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence."

Through three presidential debates and one vice-presidential sparring match, the candidates have talked about issues ranging from North Mali to Big Bird and other assorted “malarkey.” Yet, we at The Ram feel that one very serious issue has been neglected by both tickets: gun control. Gun control has only come up once in this campaign, notably at the Oct. 16 town-hall debate at Hofstra in which the audience asked the questions.

JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. – More than 30 combat engineers from 14th Engineer Battalion, 555th Engineer Brigade, took part in New Equipment Training Oct. 17 to familiarize themselves with a new weapons system they received.

Pfc. Jesus Hafen was fumbling a little with the magazine, until he figured out he was trying to put it into the weapon backwards. It was a weapon that would take some getting used to, but that was exactly the point of the day’s training – weapons familiarization.

CHICAGO (WLS) - At City Hall, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy is making news on the kind of gun control the city should seek in Springfield.

Here at City Hall in city budget hearings, McCarthy was talking up a new approach to gun control, "We keep trying to pass comprehensive gun legislation and my recommendation is to really start small. The fact is, if there was a requirement to report the loss, transfer of a firearm in the state of Illinois, that would significantly limit the number of firearms in the city of Chicago."

The following is the text of an open letter to hunters and sportsmen from ISRA-FEDPac Chairman, Richard Pearson:

Fellow Sportsman:

About this time four years ago, I penned an open letter to you that spoke of the Barack Obama I grew to know while I was a lobbyist in the Illinois State Capitol. At that time, I described Obama as a stony-faced liar who will do whatever it takes to force his extremist agenda on the American people. I warned you that electing Barack Obama would be something that hunters, sportsmen, target shooters and gun collectors would live to regret.

It is hard to believe but in a few short years my first born, my “baby,” will be heading off to college. The browsing has begun and next year we will begin making visits. Truly shocking to this GenX’er dad – not only is the college decision looming before me, but like so many other things that are different than “when I was young,” because my daughter is smarter and more gifted that I was at her age, distilling down the possibilities will be difficult. But try as we might to avoid it, we have to deal with the reality . . . our daughter will soon be going to college and we will have to help.

Critics of "castle doctrine" laws are blaming Montana's for the decision not to prosecute Brice Harper, who shot and killed Dan Fredenberg last month during a confrontation over Harper's affair with Fredenberg's wife. But as with the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, it is not clear why the legal provisions cited by the law's detractors are relevant. According to Harper, an enraged (but unarmed) Fredenburg charged into the garage at Harper's home in Kalispell on the night of September 22 "like he was on a mission."
 

Rapid-fire answers to gun control, but quickly off-target

Let’s give a cheer for Nina Gonzalez, the woman who asked Mitt Romney and Barack Obama about gun control at last week’s presidential debate.

People, have you noticed how regularly this topic fails to come up? We have been having this campaign since the dawn of the ice age. Why wasn’t there a gun control moment before now?

True, the candidates were asked about it after the horrific blood baths last summer in Colorado and Wisconsin. But there have been 43 American mass shootings in the last year. Wouldn’t you think that would qualify guns for a more regular mention?

It was Sept. 22, and Mr. Fredenberg, 40, was upset. He strode up the driveway of a quiet subdivision here to confront Brice Harper, a 24-year-old romantically involved with Mr. Fredenberg’s young wife. But as he walked through Mr. Harper’s open garage door, Mr. Fredenberg was doing more than stepping uninvited onto someone else’s property. He was unwittingly walking onto a legal landscape reshaped by laws that have given homeowners new leeway to use force inside their own homes.

The NRA is at it again! The National Rifle Association has bought ads in Wisconsin telling voters that President Barack Obama is “chipping away at our Second Amendment rights.” This could not be further from the truth. ... So if the gun lobby doesn’t like the president, then gun control advocates must love him, right?
Wrong. Jeri Bonavia, executive director of Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort, says, “At a minimum, he should have gotten a national discussion going on what we can do to prevent gun violence. The president has an obligation to take up this issue, which has devastated so many communities. Years of silence are not serving the people well.”

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There are other things so clearly out of the power of Congress, that the bare recital of them is sufficient, I mean the "...rights of bearing arms for defence, or for killing game..." These things seem to have been inserted among their objections, merely to induce the ignorant to believe that Congress would have a power over such objects and to infer from their being refused a place in the Constitution, their intention to exercise that power to the oppression of the people. —ALEXANDER WHITE (1787)
