"A teenager was shot in the face with an air rifle at point blank range and two of his friends were clobbered over the head by attackers who stole a mobile."

"The gun was put against the 17-year-old's cheek and fired directly into his face, just missing his left eye." ...

"The two offenders then turned on the victim's pals - one aged 17, the other 15 - hit them over the head with the rifle and punched them in the face, before stealing a mobile phone from one of them." ...

BATF Fighting Proposal to Import Old, American-made Weapons
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"The federal gun control bureau is strongly opposing a proposal to let gun sellers and owners import as many as two million World War II era infantry weapons that were made in the United States and exported to the world's armies decades ago."

"The objections from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms come as the State Department is considering the proposal, which is being pressed by a trade association that lobbies for gun importers. The bureau says the idea, which would lift a 50-year-old ban, would flood the market with outdated but deadly weapons that could fall into the hands of criminals and would be hard to regulate." ...

"A letter from the firearms bureau, part of the Treasury Department, warned that the change would prevent it from stopping the criminal use of 'particularly dangerous' old guns: pistols that are readily concealed and carbines and Garand rifles, which can be easily converted into automatic weapons. Moreover, the letter warned, the carbine and Garand can fire bullets capable of piercing the soft body armor worn by police officers." ...

CONSIDER...

These fascist anti-gun public swervants are basically saying that age of a firearm should help justify a ban. They are also saying that firearms less lethal than many found in a local gun store should be banned because they are "deadly weapons." And they are saying that "concealable" American-made handguns shouldn't be allowed back into the country even though the market in new and used concealable handguns is wide open and flourishing.

With all due respect to BATF, we are rather curious as to what kind of anti-gun moron is running their public relations campaign. The only people who could actually buy into these flaccid arguments are people who don't have a clue.

"Barbara Olshansky was at a Newark International Airport departure gate last May when an airline agent at the counter checking her boarding pass called airport security. Olshansky was subjected to a close search and then, though she was in view of other travelers, was ordered to pull her pants down. The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks may have created a new era in airport security, but even so, she was embarrassed and annoyed."

"Perhaps one such incident might've been forgotten, but Olshansky, the assistant legal director for the left-leaning Center for Constitutional Rights, was pulled out of line for special attention the next time she flew. And the next time. And the next time. On one flight this past September from Newark to Washington, six members of the center's staff, including Olshansky, were stopped and subjected to intense scrutiny, even though they had purchased their tickets independently and had not checked in as a group. On that occasion, Olshansky got angry and demanded to know why she had been singled out." ...

A 1995 British court banned the book; it was released in the U.S. The court ruled the article would infringe the prince's privacy and serve no public interest. Editor Allan Rennie plans to appeal the ban: "It is ridiculous that Americans have had the chance to read these revelations and we have not."

Newslinks Reader Lee Mathews introduces this one:

KIRO TV News (Seattle) has been heavily promoting a "Team 7 Investigation" that was scheduled to air Monday evening at 5 PM. The reporter, accompanied by a spy cam, purchased a rifle at a "local" gun show "in 15 minutes and w/o any paperwork." The purchase was legal... but it was not "local." Sheriff John McCroskey explains in this op-ed. Also see:

Exceprts and Submitter Comment here:

“Let me be sure I understand what we have here,” I replied. “You have a video, of a lawful transaction, by law-abiding citizens, and wonder if that concerns me?”

Nope.

“But Sheriff, he bought the rifle in five minutes! He didn’t have to fill out any paperwork! Surely that is a concern.”

The last line is the best.

BALTIMORE, Maryland (AP) -- A Baltimore police officer has his badge to thank for deflecting a bullet during a scuffle last night.

Police said Officer James Howard was treated last night and released.

Police Commissioner Edward Norris said Howard was patrolling in Northwest Baltimore at about 6 p.m. when he got out of his car and began searching the area on foot. A few minutes later, the officer noticed a large man in the alley, and called dispatchers.

The man attacked Howard, grabbing his service gun and firing it at him.

Norris said Howard is "very lucky." The badge, he said, is going in the police museum.

KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuters) -- "A group of gunmen opened fire on crowds of shoppers in three sections of Jamaica's capital, killing five, wounding 15 and spurring authorities to send more than 100 police and soldiers into the streets to prevent reprisals, police said Sunday."

"Police said there was no clear motive for the shooting spree late Saturday, when the gunmen first hit shoppers in the Beckford Street area of downtown Kingston."

"The gunmen then scattered to nearby Matthews Lane and Hannah Town, where they again shot into crowds. Police said three people died on the streets and 17 were rushed to a hospital, where two others later died."

"None of the victims have been identified publicly. Kingston Public Hospital officials said three of the 15 wounded were in critical condition."

"The Caribbean nation of 2.7 million people has one of the world's highest murder rates, and much of the violence is attributed to inner-city gangs linked to drug- and gun-trafficking. Police said 921 people have been murdered so far this year, compared to a record 1,139 people in all of last year." ...

"What was and is the main reason the Founding Fathers - all of them - wanted us to have guns, guns we would bear (carry) on our persons? Why did they say so, again and again? Hunting. Yes, hunting certainly was one reason. Even today, many Americans still go hunting to put fresh kill on the table. Some even have organized to express their joyful dominion, and call themselves P.E.T.A., People Eating Tasty Animals. What about sport? Yes, there are many gun sports, such as skeet, or even plinking at cans, which offer wholesome recreation. But neither sport nor hunting is even remotely the main reason. Well, what about self-defense? Surely self-defense is the reason we seek. No. It's important, yes. Sometimes, regrettably, we do need to protect ourselves and our families from private criminals who are armed, and a gun is the best way to do that, unless you happen to be Chuck Norris or Steven Segall, which most people are not.
