"The Supreme Court considered Wednesday whether people convicted of a crime overseas can be barred from owning a gun in the United States, with the argument at times centering on how the absent Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist might rule." ...

"U.S. law forbids felons from owning guns ... At issue in the case is whether Congress meant to include foreign convictions when it criminalized firearm possession by anybody convicted in 'any court.'" ...

"Government lawyer Patricia Millett responded that the Supreme Court had always given the word 'any' a broad meaning to help promote gun safety, before Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg jumped in, citing a case Rehnquist authored that she said suggested otherwise." ...

"The Sportsman's Voice Prevails! . . . America's hunting and shooting community will have a friend in the White House for four more years, plus new friends in the Senate and the House, after Tuesday's election in which George W. Bush defeated John Kerry decisively in both the electoral college and the popular vote."

"In closely contested Ohio, early indications are that the sportsman's vote helped tip the balance in Bush's favor, securing the president that state's coveted 20 electoral votes. One news report said 60 percent of hunters and shooters voted for Bush over Kerry in Ohio, thus validating the Hunting and Shooting Sports Heritage Fund's Vote Your Sport campaign and the grassroots efforts of the NRA and other groups in that state and nationwide." ...

In a couple of cases where our preferred candidates lost, they were beaten by people we know that we can work with.' "

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A 22-year-old soldier from Darwin's Robertson Barracks has been fined $600 for firearms offences involving replica pistols that were found in his house in October last year.

Geoffrey James Brotherton was cooperating with a police search for drugs at the Barracks when the firearms were found.

The Darwin Magistrates Court heard Brotherton was not licensed to handle the replica pistols.

His lawyer told the court the firearms had small plastic pellets and his client had used them to shoot at figurines when he was a teenager.

Magistrate Daynor Trigg heard the soldier had served in Iraq and East Timor and was an exemplary soldier.

He was fined $600 and no conviction was recorded.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

This is in response to Bill Arevalo’s letter (Oct. 22). He stated he carries a concealed weapon on campus. Well congratulations, this is in direct violation of University rules! "The possession, use, or distribution of any explosives, guns, or other deadly or dangerous materials or weapons reasonably calculated to cause bodily injury is prohibited in the University facilities, unless specifically authorized by the University or required by or used in the course of a University activity and under the supervision of a University representative."

So you are correct, it is people such as yourself who use guns incorrectly and illegally who are the problem.

Submitter's note: I submitted a pro-gun story that got printed, I said that I carry my gun concealed to my University. I break a school rule, not any Indiana laws.
