NY: Vestal Gun Reminders For Deer Hunting Season

Before deer hunters head to the woods, Vestal wants to remind people of the Town's gun law. Hunters must stay at least 1 thousand feet away from buildings like schools, businesses, farms, houses and churches. That's a longer distance than the state law, which bans shooting guns within 500 feet of buildings. The Vestal Police Department says most hunters are aware of the code.

MA: Boston police to ask to do warrantless searches of youth's homes
Submitted by: Anonymous

Boston police are launching a program that will call upon parents in high-crime neighborhoods to allow detectives into their homes, without a warrant, to search for guns in their children's bedrooms.
The program, which is already raising questions about civil liberties, is based on the premise that parents are so fearful of gun violence and the possibility that their own teenagers will be caught up in it that they will turn to police for help, even in their own households.
---
The professionals know best, eh? High-crime neighborhoods, at first. They will "have discretion" whether to file charges if contraband is found in the search to only remove "very dangerous objects."
 

NY: Cuffing Suspects Who’ve Been Shot: a Flash Point
Submitted by: Anonymous

It was done after three men were shot in Queens a year ago in a hail of 50 police bullets. It occurred again on Monday, after five officers fired 20 shots at Khiel Coppin outside his Brooklyn home, killing him.
A man is down, on the ground, bleeding, and the police are handcuffing him.
Relatives, friends, neighbors and curious onlookers often see one thing: a wounded man, who is already incapacitated, being further restrained.
While the deadly force itself is always Topic A, the handcuffing that follows can become a flash point for angry outbursts, seen as one final indignity. It may sound backward: The cuffs go on after the shooting.

OR: First-grader suspended over drawing

A first-grader was suspended Tuesday for drawing a stick figure shooting another in the head with a gun and allegedly threatening students.
Little Butte School officials sent 6-year-old Ryan Weathers home after receiving complaints from parents saying he threatened their children, said Douglas Weathers, the boy's father.
"He's not a violent kid," Weathers said. "He did not mean any harm."
School district officials declined to comment. State law bars them from discussing disciplinary actions against specific students.
The disciplinary report given to Weathers stated the reason for the suspension was the boy "threatened to shoot two girls in the head."
The drawing was inspired by an episode of "The Simpsons," Weathers said.

VA: Democratic Gun Rights Activists Seek Senate Power

The Virginia General Assembly could become more friendly to gun rights advocates despite gains by Democrats in state elections this month, several lawmakers and advocates said. But the specter of the April massacre at Virginia Tech could soften the effects of that change as relatives of victims prepare to push for greater restrictions on gun sales and possession, particularly on college campuses. Democrats will control the state Senate with a 21 to 19 majority when lawmakers begin their new terms in January, but those who support stricter controls on gun possession and purchases will hold only a narrow majority in the Senate Democratic Caucus.

A Keeseville-based company has a new product that will be used by two downstate law-enforcement agencies and has attracted interest from national media. Pistol-Cam, a digital video-recording camera with sound-recording capability, is the creation of Legend Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Adirondack Optics. It is the brainchild of company founder and CEO Terry Gordon, who holds six patents on it and similar devices, including his original invention, the SmartScope rifle sight/digital camera combination.

The Montana Shooting Sports Association (MSSA) announced today that it has endorsed Congressman Ron Paul to be nominated as the Republican candidate for President of the United States. Ron Paul has long served in the U.S. House of Representatives from Texas. Congressman Paul stunned many political observers this past Monday by raising $4.2 million in campaign donations from small donors in one 24-hour period.

MSSA president Gary Marbut commented, "Ron Paul has been a consistent and ardent supporter of the rights of gun owners for 30 years. We commend him to all thoughtful and concerned gun owners."

Kathy Adkins moved from target to target, using a .38 revolver and a 9 mm semiautomatic pistol with deadly efficiency, putting holes in the dead centers of paper targets meant to look like people. Adkins, 48, owns a real estate firm in Jackson and has been taking firearms training since March. Instructor Cliff Cargill said he has had many new students since the Legislature passed a bill last year giving residents expanded legal rights to protect themselves in their homes, cars or businesses.

With more guns sold and registered per capita than anywhere in the U.S., Nevada is a gun state - always has been. It also is the gun-death state. According to the Center for Disease Control, since 2000, Nevada has led the nation with an average of 26 gun-related deaths per 100,000 people. War-torn Iraq averaged 32 gun deaths per 100,000 people last year, according to the same study.

Curbing criminal misuse of guns, not taking them from the hands of sportsmen, would end gun violence in the United States, a congressman and a National Rifle Association spokesman agreed Saturday in Pine Township. “Arm people with the facts,” Chris Cox, an executive director for the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, told about a dozen people at the Grove City Sportsman Club on Centertown Road. Cox and U.S. Rep. Phil English of Erie, R-3rd District, held a meeting to discuss sportsmen’s issues facing Congress. English is an asset to sportsmen and the NRA alike in proposing and passing legislation favoring them both, Cox said.

VA: Pioneering 'heat wave' gun may be used in Iraq

American commanders in Iraq are urging Pentagon chiefs to authorise the deployment of newly-developed heat wave guns to disperse angry crowds or violent rioters.
But the plea for what senior army officers believe could prove a valuable alternative to traditional firepower in dangerous trouble-spots has so far gone unanswered.
Washington fears a barrage of adverse publicity in the suspicious Muslim world and is concerned that critics will claim the invisible beam weapons were being used for torture.


Ed.: I doubt the feds have done any studies on the long term effects of this thing. I wonder if death from skin cancer is a suitable punishment for protesting/rioting?

AZ: Sheriff: Teens in fatal shooting were burglars

SIERRA VISTA — The two teenagers involved with the Friday morning fatal shooting were apparently burgling an unoccupied home when the incident happened, according to investigators with the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office.

Thus explains the charges against Nicholas Michael Murphy, 16, who remains at the Cochise County Jail on $250,000 bond, accused of second degree murder, burglary and trespassing, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Carol Capas said.

Josh Olson, 16, was evidently killed by the blast that came from the shotgun as it accidentally went off, Capas said. Because the shooting death came during the commission of a felony crime, the second-degree murder charge is authorized by Arizona criminal statutes.
 

UT: Utahns exercise right to openly carry firearms

Among the things that make Utah a special place are its gun laws. Love 'em or hate 'em, they often make living, working and even dining in the state a visceral experience, harking back to the heady days of Deadwood and Dodge City.

Most Utahns are aware their state issues an easily obtained concealed-weapon permit. By passing a background check and basic course in gun safety, anyone over 21 can qualify to carry an undercover gun.

"...Also he was carefully advised concerning the probable danger. He was told that the robbers were desperate men who 'would shoot him just as quick as they saw him.' He carried a pistol and sawed-off shot gun* 'for the purpose of defending himself and the company's property.' When asked 'Whether you will fight these fellows or not?' he replied, 'I will fight them until I die.' ..."

"...Carried a “pistol and sawed-off shot gun”, eh? . . . . Hey, wait just a minute here! ..."

"...He hauled a small hut upon the land, did a little plowing, and slept on the place one or two nights. He left, intending to return, but was prevented from doing so by James Beacom, who, with a drawn pistol and threats of violence, kept him from coming on the land. Subsequently, Lyle did re-enter and remained until he was again forced to leave..."

"...The fact that by the threats and violence of another trespasser, he was prevented from continuing his forcible entry and detainer, deprived him of no right in the land, though it does illustrate what would be the result if possession secured by violence and maintained with force and arms could furnish the basis of a right enforceable in law..."
 

DC: Making sense of the Second Amendment

The district court upheld the laws, but the U.S. Court of Appeals struck them down on Second Amendment grounds. Mayor Adrian Fenty appealed the case to the Supreme Court, and if the court decides not to step in, the latter ruling will stand.

The court should hear the case and strike down the laws. The Constitution clearly prohibits gun control of the kind the city has enacted, and there is no evidence that taking away the right to self-defense reduces crime.
 

VA: Gun bans defy common sense

Larry Hincker believed that Virginia Tech had a sound policy preventing students from bringing guns to campus. However, there is an important distinction that needs to be addressed. What Hincker really meant is that Virginia Tech had a policy prohibiting people from bringing guns to campus, but it did nothing to prevent someone with no regard for the law or policy from bringing a gun to campus and killing.

Many citizens are concerned that allowing students to arm themselves for self-defense would be a bad idea because they could be involved in illicit drug use and binge drinking on campus. Because of this, their approach is to prohibit the possession of firearms on campus.
