FULL TEXT BELOW

Grand jurors in Monmouth County have indicted a federal air marshal on charges stemming from a road rage incident on the Garden State Parkway.

Michael McGowan is charged with official misconduct, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon.

Authorities say McGowan cut off another motorist on the toll road in Bricktown in May. They say he then flashed his lights and turned on a siren to pull over the vehicle and brandished a pistol.

McGowan told police he was attending air marshal training in Pomona.

McGowan has been suspended from the service after he was charged by federal authorities with possessing child pornography in July.

... "Speaking of facts, I encourage you [Mr. Noble] to see No. 14 on page 146 of your Mortar Board, which does allow authorized students to have a gun on campus."

"I was also disgusted to see you label yourself as a 'real man' based upon the type of weapon you use for hunting. Maybe it is you who is suffering from the same 'personal insecurities' you accuse others of. One who is truly knowledgeable about firearms knows they don't make the person; they are simply tools available to use. Of course, you've already labeled women who use a pistol to defend themselves from rapists 'cowards;' so maybe I give you too much credit." ...

"Rejecting the governor's veto, Illinois lawmakers overwhelmingly voted to give new legal protection to homeowners who use a banned handgun to shoot burglars."

"The House voted 85-30 Tuesday to override Governor Rod Blagojevich's veto. The Senate had approved the bill earlier, so it now becomes law." ...

"The bill's supporters saw it as a statement of support for the basic concept that people should be able to defend themselves in their own homes. Opponents viewed it as an attempt to undercut local gun laws." ...

"Under the new state law, someone who shoots an intruder on his or her property could not be convicted of violating a local gun ban. The new law does not, however, prevent state charges if prosecutors believe the shooting itself was a crime." ...

"A teenage robbery suspect was recovering from a gunshot wound to the stomach Sunday evening after attempting to rob a 73-year-old man, Kingsport police said."

"Kingsport police had not placed any charges against Smith as of Sunday evening. Police officials said the investigation probably would not proceed to that point until Smith had recovered enough to be interviewed by detectives." ...

"'Upon further investigation the officer discovered that the suspect had attempted to rob the victim Larkin Castle in his home by producing a knife and demanding money,' Blessing stated in his report. 'Mr. Castle then picked up his handgun and ordered the suspect from his home. The suspect took a step toward the victim and was shot one time in the stomach.'" ...

... "Another reason is for the simple act of self-defense. Opponents argue that is what the police are for. But the police aren't much help from five miles away when someone's standing there with a gun aimed at your chest. Your own weapon is a much more effective equalizer. And as important as this second consideration is, I think there is an even more important point that needs complete exploration and that has implications for our current international morass." ...

"I agree with every pro-gun rights aspect and statement in this story ['Illinois homes soon to be fortresses, not just castles,' Friday, November 12, 2004] except one."

""We need to all stop saying things like legislation to restore the right of self-defense.' We should say instead something like '...to stop the infringement of the natural right of self-defense.'"

"No one, no government, no law can legally deprive us of the God-given right of self-defense. It can only illegally deprive us of the ability to exercise that right. Such a law is by definition illegal and void in the eyes of Nature and of Nature's God. This is a subtle but very important distinction that we must make continually." ...

"It is easy to play armchair officer when debating the actions of police in subduing people. But no matter what the circumstances, separate incidents in which Miami-Dade authorities used a 50,000-volt Taser to overcome an angry 6-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl playing hooky will look awful to the casual observer."

"Miami-Dade police obviously need clearer policies that discourage the use of stun guns to overpower children ..."

"In the first incident, police on Oct. 20 shot a 6-year-old who had grabbed a shard of glass, cut himself and threatened others. The 12-year-old ran from police Nov. 5 after she was found drinking and smoking in an abandoned pool; the officer there said he shot the girl to keep her from running into traffic." ...

"Since the expiration in September of the federal assault weapons ban, the debate over gun rights and the Second Amendment has been renewed."

"The Second Amendment reads, 'A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.' Those on the anti-gun, anti-NRA, anti-Second Amendment side insist that there is no right of individual citizens to keep and bear arms. They are wrong on a number of counts." ...

"Logic alone reduces the anti-individual right arguments to dust. All of the other rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights are universally accepted to be individual rights. It is absurd to suggest that the Founders would be so illogical as to have one of those rights, the second no less, not be an individual right." ...

"Seegars v Ashcroft was filed on behalf of 6 plaintiffs and named as defendants Ashcroft, the Attorney General of the United States at the time (he has since announced his intent to resign), and the Mayor of the District of Columbia. The basic facts of the challenge are similar to what was discussed in Parker v DC, specifically, that the law in the District of Columbia forbids the common citizen from keeping a firearm in their own home for purposes of self defense. Those laws are challenged as being in violation of the 2nd Amendment. The attorney for the plaintiffs is Stephen Hallbrook, a respected legal scholar well-known for his positions on firearms law, and this lawsuit is considered the chosen vehicle of the National Rifle Association." ...

"A longtime advocate for gun rights at the Minnesota Legislature, Rep. Lynda Boudreau's Nov. 2 defeat offered hope to those who opposed her efforts to expand access to concealed-weapons permits."

"But other issues seemed to have had a bigger effect on the race."

"The Faribault-area candidates and others say the race centered more on government spending, and was characterized by tough campaign tactics and significant spending by political and interest groups."

"'You take a shred of truth - you twist it,' Boudreau said of the criticism she faced, including a nursing-home increase dubbed a 'granny tax.'"

"Winner Patti Fritz and her supporters believe they won because of concerns that the district was losing out and that Boudreau was part of a Republican majority starving schools, local governments and other local projects." ...

"Re: your Nov. 15 article, 'Venturans to ask again for closure of pistol range':"

"The article on the Ventura shooting range left out three critical issues that must be addressed."

"First, why the omission of a very important law? Senate Bill 517, enacted October 1997, makes it crystal clear that no current range in California can be shut down because of noise. I brought a copy to the council in November 1997. All ranges were 'grandfathered' in. Now, why was this overlooked and not mentioned?" ...

"Why would not the city use SB517 to eliminate this problem? The council has copies of this sound testing that proves there is no existing noise problem. I would hope any decision on the operations of this range have not been prejudged long before the vote."

Two Louisa-Muscatine High School students who brought shotguns onto the school grounds in the vehicles after going hunting have been suspended for 45 days by the school board.

Superintendent John Dotson said the boys had been hunting and one was wearing a hunting jacket with ammunition in the pockets at school Nov. 11. The guns were not taken from the vehicles into the school.

“This is the second time in a month we have suspended students for weapons policy violations,” Dotson said. “The students need to think twice about their actions.”

In October, the board voted to suspend for 45 days two high school students who were in joint possession of a BB-pellet pistol on the school grounds.

"He had been hugged at a gas station by a hunter delighted at bagging a big buck, and had checked the credentials of more than 150 hunters for violations."

"Holmes was the lone conservation officer patrolling Washtenaw County for the Department of Natural Resources on Monday, the opening day of the firearm deer hunting season in Michigan." ...

"Holmes began the day at 7 a.m., and expected to finish handling complaints around 11 p.m. His biggest flurries of activity came as hunters went into the woods during the early morning at sunrise and when they emerged after sunset. 'That's when I find the most violations,' he said." ...

"If you are reading this while driving, keep both hands on the wheel, because in the days ahead, we will all be seeing more deer being driven down the expressway on top of cars and trucks, sticking their tongues out at us in what was likely their last act of defiance."

"For the uninitiated, this is the time of year when the population of deer is 'thinned' by 'harvesting' the dumbest or slowest does and bucks." ...

"To be fair to the deer, only a limited number of permits are issued to hunters, and only during certain seasons. There is bow season, rifle season, handgun season and muzzle-loading season, and I think there is a two-week period where you can hunt them with clever repartee. If we miss any of those opportunities, we must bag our deer the civilized way: hit them with our car." ...

"Farmers and rural businesses are facing the effects of crime on a daily basis but failure to report criminal activity is preventing much-needed police resources from being allocated to tackle the problem, it was claimed today."

"Two thirds of people living in the rural West Midlands said they had been victims of crime in the past year at a cost to businesses of more than £580,000, according to business leaders." [emphasis added]

"The Country Land and Business Association questioned 245 landowners, farmers and rural businesses in the region following fears that crime was being largely under-reported." ...

"According to the survey, 67 per cent of people had been victims of crime in the last two years. Of them, 77 per cent had been victims on more than one occasion." [emphasis added] ...
