Some gun advocates are concerned a flood, earthquake or other emergency could wash away gun-owner's rights. Bills that already have cleared House and Senate committees would bar state and local officials from restricting the lawful possession of a gun.

A homeowner in Eastvale shot someone who he said was breaking into his home Monday morning, hitting the intruder in the foot, Riverside County sheriff's officials said. About 45 minutes after the home invasion, a 17-year-old from Moreno Valley matching the suspect's description checked into Riverside County Regional Medical Center in Moreno Valley with a bullet wound, sheriff's Investigator Gerald Franchville said. The homeowner identified the teen and sheriff's deputies arrested him, Franchville said. Investigators are still uncertain whether others accompanied the suspect, whom they did not name.
 

Tourists with minor criminal records turned back at Canadian border

There was a time not long ago when a trip across the border from the United States to Canada was accomplished with a wink and a wave of a driver's license. Those days are over.

Welcome to the new world of border security. Unsuspecting Americans are turning up at the Canadian border expecting clear sailing, only to find that their past -- sometimes their distant past -- is suddenly an issue.

While Canada officially has barred travelers convicted of criminal offenses for years, attorneys say post-9/11 information-gathering, combined with a sweeping agreement between Canada and the United States to share data, has resulted in a spike in phone calls from concerned travelers.

Police officers responding to emergencies are flagged constantly by the automated red-light and speed cameras in the District, forcing them to waste hours getting the tickets dismissed in court, according to the Fraternal Order of Police.

"It's just an enormous waste of resources and an enormous waste of time," Kristopher Baumann, the D.C. union's chairman, told The Washington Times. "Officers have had to spend months writing letters and getting different approvals to show what they were doing."

Jeffry Courtney, 51; Officer Stephen Harrison, 46; and Detective Thomas Simcox, 50, have been charged by federal authorities. The officers provided protection and ran drugs and money for FBI agents posing as an organized crime group, according to The Associated Press, which cited an unnamed law enforcement source.

The State Government has urgently changed its gun laws to allow Mr Cheney to bring armed Secret Service agents to the city this week.

For three days, the bodyguards will have permission to use their own weapons to protect Mr Cheney, who arrives in Sydney today.

This biggest news in the outdoor industry this week has been the enormous flap over comments made by Jim Zumbo, one of the biggest names in outdoor journalism. Reaction was, to say the least, swift and overwhelming. It was reported elsewhere that Zumbo's entry had over 3,000 comments posted before it was yanked by the magazine. Anti-gunners seized on the comments and used them to bolster their arguments against the evil "black guns."

Only 41 schools in the state have PIAA-sanctioned rifle teams, preventing the up-and-coming sport from holding an all-encompassing state championship.

The House, under pressure from law enforcement groups, reversed itself on a proposed law that would let residents brandish a firearm if they feel threatened. The House rejected the measure on a 50-48 vote Friday, a week after first endorsing it on a 57-43 vote. The proposal also would have clarified law to specify that gun owners don't have to retreat from a would-be assailant before shooting in self-defense.
 

UK: Police consider speed cameras that could trap drivers on their cell phone

Speed camera and CCTV evidence can be used to prosecute drivers talking on mobile phones while at the wheel, police said yesterday.

Motorists caught on camera with phones in their hands are "fair game", one Chief Constable said.

In many cases, drivers will not even know they have been punished, because police do not have to stop them to issue penalty notices.

The proliferation of surveillance and police enforcement cameras across Britain means the risk of being spotted on the phone by a lens is much greater than being seen by a police officer at the roadside.

A woman is suing Burlingame police for $1.4 million, accusing an officer of berating her as she mourned her brother's death.

The civil rights lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco last week, alleges that Officer Jarel Peters shoved Angela Ostini into a chair, yelled at her and threatened to haul her in for a mental evaluation if she didn't stop crying.

"It was the worst experience of my life," Ostini, 54, of Nice, told the San Francisco Chronicle. "He used his badge as a weapon against a citizen who did nothing."

When Ostini resisted Peters' orders to calm down, the officer began berating her, according to the lawsuit. He said something to the effect of, "Listen, (expletive), who do you think you are?"

Criticism of hunters who use assault rifles puts writer's career in jeopardy

"This shows the zealousness of gun owners to the point of actual foolishness," said Pat Wray, a freelance outdoors writer in Corvallis, Ore., and author of "A Chukar Hunter's Companion."

Subm. note: No, it shows that some "sportsmen" have NO IDEA what the right to keep and bear arms is all about.

Ron Bongiorno, 55, of New Hartford, recently sat staring out the window of the Ilion McDonald's by Remington Arms, where he has worked for 36 years. With his hamburger a bite or two from completion, he stopped to reflect on a career that will soon come to an end when he retires. "It's been good to me through the years," he said.

The first place many victims go after a burglary or a robbery is the gun shop. People want to be prepared to defend themselves the next time. But rarely do they learn how to do it properly, said Sgt. Tommy Tillman, spokesman for the Chatham County Sheriff's Department. "A spike in crime usually means a spike in attendance at gun shows or people going out to purchase handguns," he said. "But a lot of times, they are not familiar with the firearms they purchase. They don't give (customers) training at a gun store." The Sheriff's Department hopes to change that.

Before his daughter was shot to death in an Arizona parking lot last Sunday, Ronald Schiffman never considered himself a political person. Now he says he might be ready for a change. Less than a week after his daughter, Nicole, 19, and her best friend, Carol Kestenbaum, 20, were killed, Schiffman called on Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to speak out against gun violence. "This is his state. John McCain should make a statement about this incident," said Schiffman. "He cries, rightly so, about all the boys who die in Iraq. I'd like to see him talk about gun control. It's a topic I think has disappeared because of all the problems the country is facing."
 

Somalia: Guns Don't Kill People, Gun Control Kills People

The country of Uganda plans to send about 1,500 troops to Somalia as part of an African Union peace-keeping force. For months now, Ugandan army troops have been garrisoned in the northeast part of the country under orders to disarm the local populace--pastoral, cattle-herding tribes known as the Karamojong. The army is attempting, and failing, to quash an uprising which was caused by a prior attempt to disarm the same tribes. This is not the first time the central government in Kampala, Uganda, has persecuted the Karamojong. This time, the pretext for the "disarmament" of the Karamojong is United Nations gun control. The Ugandan military is trying to round up every last firearm in Karamoja, supposedly for the Karamojong's own good.

A Botetourt County couple is seeking $10 million from a sheriff's deputy they say stole into their 10-year-old daughter's bedroom one night this month and terrified the girl.

In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Roanoke yesterday, Mark and Cheryl Hunsberger said Mark Hunsberger bolted into their screaming daughter's bedroom at 1:16 a.m. Feb. 2 to find Deputy J.A. Wood, in uniform, aiming a flashlight at the girl while another man tried to yank the bed covers off her.

When Mrs. Hunsberger said something about calling the police, Deputy Wood responded, chillingly, "I am the police."

"...It is no longer confined to the preservation of the public peace, the administration of criminal law, the registration of voters, and the superintendence of elections, but "in all respects" is asserted to be paramount to the existing civil governments."

"It is impossible to conceive any state of society more intolerable than this; and yet it is to this condition that twelve millions of American citizens are reduced by the Congress of the United States. Over every foot of the immense territory occupied by these American citizens, the Constitution of the United States is theoretically in full operation. It binds all the people there and should protect them; yet they are denied every one of its sacred guarantees..."

FLINT - The city will pay $5,000 each for two assault rifles used in the 2005 slaying of man in a S. Dort Highway parking lot.

The two rifles are the main targets of a gun buyback program slated to begin March 16 at Flint Fire Station 6 at Pierson Road and Dupont Avenue.

Guns that don't work will be worth $25, while working handguns will fetch $50. Police will pay $100 for functional shotguns and rifles and $150 for working semiautomatic weapons.

But the big bucks will go for two semiautomatic SKS 7.62mm rifles used to shoot Ali S. Garrison about 2 a.m. June 10, 2005, in the parking lot of Spring Mountain Water Co. near Dort Highway and Longway Boulevard.

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety is starting a gun-violence education program for middle schoolers meant to counter the allure of weapons portrayed by street gangs, violent video games and some popular music.

KDPS Chief Dan Weston said the city's gun-related homicides now are a fraction of the violent deaths reported here a decade ago.

Weston said school-resource officers will present Project Sentry, an education program developed by the Michigan Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence. Resource people from law enforcement, the medical field, gun-crime victims and family members talk to students about the risks and consequences of gun use.

Now that state officials have acknowledged that phasing in hunting and fishing license fee increases over time makes more sense than doubling them (or more) in one fell swoop, they are optimistic that revenue enhancement will get off high center and gain traction.

Of course, the best solution would be for the Legislature to increase general funding, to take into account the bird-watchers, mountain bikers and berry pickers who get the benefits of our natural resources at no cost.

No open carry in WalMart February 20, 2007. Is the next mass murder by a madman going to happen in a crowded WalMart near you?

After nearly five months open carrying all over Wyoming and western SD, I had my first really negative experience. I've carried in a SD Walmart for three plus months, with only friendly questions from both customers and clerks on occasion.
