"At a Town Board meeting earlier this week, Town Attorney Scott Volkman said the cost, nonetheless, is expected to stay within a $10,000 budget approved five months ago."

"'I do not expect to go over that original estimate,' he said. 'It would be an opportunity for some cost sharing on the part of the two appellants, the private citizens as well as the town, at least as it pertains to the preparations of working on an appeal.'" ...

"But as the gun enthusiasts took aim at their targets during a visit last weekend, many of them worried it would be the last time they would be able to use the range. A Livingston County judge has approved an injunction ordering the entire complex - both the rifle range and the skeet, trap and sporting clay range - closed." ...

"After an 18-day visit to the impoverished Caribbean nation, Amnesty called on the interim government to investigate the police, and urged it and a UN peacekeeping force to carry out a program of disarmament." [emphasis added]

"While acknowledging interim Prime Minister Gerard Latortue inherited numerous problems from the ousted democratically-elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Amnesty said, 'None of these difficulties can be invoked by state agents to justify violations of human rights committed in total impunity'." ...

IN: Israeli students co-exist with guns

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Adam Noble (Nov. 4), whose opinion I respect, responded in the Exponent to a letter by Bill Arevalo (Oct. 27), a student who frequents his university while carrying a loaded gun concealed on his person. Mr. Noble expressed his disdain with the carrying of arms on campus.

However, he should visit Tel Aviv University in Israel, where it is possible to see some students coming to study with fully automatic assault rifles (me included) as well as privately owned pistols. This does not infringe upon its academic atmosphere at all. As far as I know, there has never been a rape on campus. As to the question of what these guns are for, the answer is "nothing at all, we hope."
