Gun Control Kills At Home And Abroad

"The last decade-plus in the United States has shown the success of empowering people to defend themselves. As more people have been enabled to carry concealed firearms, violent crime has declined. The crime rate has declined nationwide, but even more so in states that have made it easier for citizens to carry guns."

"That case has been stated eloquently by the title of Dr. John Lott's book: More Guns, Less Crime."

"Speaking of titles, there are two books that make it clear that governments themselves have killed far more non-combatant disarmed civilians than all of the thugs without badges combined. Those titles are Death by Gun Control by Aaron Zelman of Jews for Preservation of Firearms Ownership and Death by Government by University of Hawaii's Professor R.J. Rummel."

"Nothing kills Democratic candidates' prospects more than guns. If it weren't for guns, President-elect Kerry might now be conferring with incoming Senate Majority Leader Daschle."

"Since the Brady Bill took effect in 1994, gun-control efforts have been a catastrophe for Democrats. They have accomplished almost nothing nationally, other than giving a big boost to the Republicans. Mr. Kerry tried to get around the problem by blasting away at small animals, but nervous Red Staters still suspected Democrats of plotting to seize guns." ...

Pumpguns have lost popularity

"The pump shotgun is not as popular today as it was in the gas light era. The over/under shotgun is winning converts by the hundreds. One of the drawbacks of the pump shotgun is its length. Having a long receiver makes the shotgun much longer than an over/under or double barrel. Short shotguns are easier to get through dense vegetation such as briars and vines. Many of the old shotguns boasted long, full choke barrels for reaching out. Today, small game hunters are using shorter barrels and less choke, and that’s a step in the right direction." ...

"IT may come as a rude shock to fans of traditional country club sports, but more Americans take part in sports involving guns than play tennis and golf combined. The list, of course, includes hunting and recreational shooting, but also a blend called sporting clays, in which shooters plunge into nature not to stalk deer or ducks but to test their skill at hitting clay targets that fly through the air or bounce across the ground." ...

"Much is made each deer season about using different rifles and calibers — how one hits harder, or one shoots flatter, or one groups tighter. Things like that generate animated talk around the fire ring."

"But not a lot is said about carrying rifles. Perhaps this is because the average white-tailed deer hunter doesn't do much gun-toting. He sits in a stand, props the rifle in a ready position and waits for a 190-typical Boone & Crockett buck." ...

"First, you want the variable-powered scope turned to its lowest setting. The reduced magnification increases field of view and eye relief (distance from the shooting eye to the rear of the scope, handy for quick shooting)." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

One man is dead following a home invasion in Rockford last night.

Rockford Police Deputy Chief Dominic Iasparro says two armed suspects forced their way into a home and at least one suspect got into a struggle with the male homeowner.

Iasparro says the homeowner was pistol whipped in the face, but got hold of one of the weapons and shot one of the suspects -- who later died at the hospital.

Police are questioning the other suspect. Officials are not releasing the name of the man who died.

The homeowner has not been charged. He was treated at a hospital for his injuries.

A judge has ruled that man accused of stabbing his wife 63 times will go on trial for murder Dec. 13th.

Twenty-two-year-old Moau Her of St. Paul was the subject of a nationwide manhunt in the days after the death of 21-year-old Sheng Vang.

The Minneapolis woman's body was discovered July 18th in the garage of the home of his parents in St. Paul. The woman's husband was arrested about a week later in Chicago.

Her is charged with one count of premeditated first-degree murder, one count of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder.

Before her death, Vang contended their three-year relationship had been abusive and volatile. She got a protection order against him and won custody of their 2-year-old daughter.

"Police are crediting Larry Dickerson, owner of Walls Jewelers, with foiling on Saturday yet another attempt to rob his store."

Raleigh Police Lt. Hil Miller said two men walked into Walls Jewelers ... Dickerson said he saw them acting suspiciously, with their hands in their pockets, so he slipped a pistol into his own pocket."

A family from Pennsylvania left the gathering at the Franciscan Monastery in Northeast Washington before 11 p.m. and walked to their car. They were approached by two or more men, at least one wielding a gun, police said.

One male and two women in the group were repeatedly pistol whipped while the second man was fatally shot, police said.

"He (an assailant) demanded money. Before they could even comply with his demands he began to strike them," said Capt. C.V. Morris, head of the Metropolitan Police Department's violent crimes branch.

The slain man, whose identity was not immediately released, was shot after he threw money at the gunman, Morris said.

The victims have been too traumatized to provide a good description of their attackers, police said.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Police in Miami are reviewing their use of stun guns after officers used them to shock two children in recent weeks.

Miami-Dade's police director defended the decision to shock a 6-year-old boy in October, saying the boy was threatening to hurt himself with a shard of glass.

But he said he can't defend the second incident -- in which a veteran officer used a 50,000-volt shock to subdue an apparently drunken 12-year-old girl.

The officer said he fired the Taser gun after the girl refused to stop, and began heading into traffic. In a statement, the officer said he fired for his safety and the girl's safety.

"... All the weapons collected will be destroyed -- despite their value."

"'We've seen some weapons today that would be very valuable to a collector,' [Lt. Short] said. 'But the goal of the program is to get these weapons off the street and give people a place to safely turn them in when they can no longer handle them or secure them . . . or just don't want them.'"

"Participant No. 22, for example ... came in with a cardboard box of weapons he had accumulated over a 30-year period. The box contained eight handguns and a 45-caliber submachine gun known as a 'grease gun.'" ...

"It's a dangerous, mixed-up world out there, so, luckily for Brown students, University Police will soon be armed with pistols in addition to their usual pepper-spray and batons. University police officers will now be able to take independent action when a dangerous situation arises on campus, rather than contacting the Providence Police Department, as past protocol required. The decision followed weeks of lengthy negotiations between University President Ruth Simmons, the University Police, and administrators. A date for the official arming has yet to be set."

"Before the police can get their new weapons, however, they must complete at least 200 hours of rigorous physical and mental training ..."

... "An anti-gang law and 3,000 soldiers patrolling the streets have helped Honduras beat back the "Maras," at least half a dozen street gangs who robbed, raped, killed and extorted money from businesses and citizens, terrorizing nearly every corner of society."

"But critics call the measure a human-rights nightmare that has touched off a war against Honduran youngsters. They say it has given authorities the freedom to hunt down and kill teenagers who may have no gang loyalty, or dump them indefinitely in overcrowded, under-supervised prisons that are often deadlier than the streets."

"In Tegucigalpa, the capital, 20 police officers have been convicted in the slayings of more than 30 suspected gang members in the past year. Eight more are awaiting trial ..." ...

"Arriving for lunch at a Topeka's Steakhouse 'n' Saloon not far from his suburban home, Van Cleave confronted another choice, an annoying one. Because the restaurant serves alcohol, Virginia law says he can't carry a concealed weapon inside. He would have to wear it in plain view. So he chose a different holster, one that fits inside his belt, leaving the gun exposed. Then he sighed."

"Much has been written accusing the firearms industry of being totally unregulated ("Gun industry needs serious regulation," letters to the editor, Nov. 6). Nothing could be further from the truth."

"The fact is that every firearms manufacturer, importer, distributor, jobber, retailer and gunsmith must have a license to operate issued by the federal government."

"In addition, most states require additional licenses prior to selling or repairing firearms. Maryland requires such a state issued license, with a commercial storefront location, proper zoning and a clean background check of the licenses." ...

"Firearms purchasers must provide state-issued photographic identification, fill out as many as seven forms, sign three affidavits attesting to the veracity of the information provided and wait until the government has checked into their background before taking possession of any firearm."

"How can all of this be considered unregulated?"

"Kirby Smith in his commentary in the Nov. 14 Sunday Telegraph that was titled, 'Common sense takes detour on gun issues,' shows complete ignorance of the 1994 assault weapons ban. Like most people, he did not take the time to get informed before writing on the issue."

"First of all, people continued to own assault weapons during the ban. All the ban did was to stop the manufacture of certain guns possessing features such as flash suppressors, pistol grips, bayonet lugs and collapsing stocks."

"Any pre-ban guns owned at the time of the ban were still legal for ownership and sale to anybody qualified to own one. Also, pre-ban high capacity magazines were still legal for sale and possession." ...
