"The revolutionary feature of the 2000 law was a plan to collect ballistic 'fingerprints' from every new handgun sold in New York State. Pataki predicted that this 'gun DNA' would solve crimes just as effectively as the genetic kind does."

"Five years and several million dollars later, however, Pataki's pet project has resulted in just one useful lead and exactly zero prosecutions." ...

An arrest following a robbery at a McMinnville Bi-Mart store has both police and area residents shocked.

The shock comes from those who know the suspect -- Clackamas County sheriff's deputy -- David Verbos.

Police said Verbos is accused of entering the store Thursday night and pulling out a gun behind the prescription counter. Authorities said Verbos allegedly demanded prescription pain pills.

Clerks reportedly gave him the pills and Verbos left the store, only to be caught the next day. No one was injured and no shots were fired.

Verbos was a school resource officer for Rex Putnam High School and, most recently, he has been on patrol in Wilsonville.

"Any town residents who would like a lock should visit the police department where they can receive up to two locks."

"Officer John Frechette said gun owners in Vermont were not required to lock their weapons, but it was a good idea to do so."

"'There's a liability in just hiding a gun in a closet,' Frechette said. 'Children could still find it and if the weapon was stolen, the owner could be held liable civilly.'"

"'It is long overdue for us to help people keep their guns safe from children and young juveniles,' he said." ...

"Political spin doctors always find a catchy positive name like 'Workplace Safety Act' or 'Workers Protection Act' to denote legislation designed to make the American workplace safer or to denote other positive legislation. Most gun-control laws are also given a catchy name designed to give the impression they are nothing more than anti-crime bills or bills that will make people safer."

"But, they really are nothing more than Criminal Protections Acts."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Gov. George Pataki is grandstanding again. He ought to know by now gun laws don't stop crime proper; punishing criminals does. Killers ought to be executed, not allowed to live the rest of their lives at taxpayers' expense.

Also, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Sliver's remark about the National Rifle Association proves he knows nothing about the NRA, which has sponsored more crime-fighting laws than most of the lawmakers in Albany. I have belonged to the NRA all my adult life and am proud of It.

"ON Dec. 8, Liberal Leader Paul Martin announced that his government planned to ban all legally owned handguns in Canada, with a few exceptions. The objective was to reduce gun crime ... by confiscating the pistols and revolvers of ordinary, law-abiding Canadians ... perhaps even target shooters. Mr. Martin suggested that target shooters might be exempted but only under new and unspecified restrictions, cold comfort to the enthusiasts of a sport that is already almost impossibly regulated."

"Reactions were predictable. Lobby groups that wish to ban firearms altogether were enthusiastic about Mr. Martin's proposal ..."

"Others quickly pointed out that handguns are already onerously licensed and regulated in Canada ..." ...
