A woman deeply distraught over the death of both of her grandparents within months held police at bay for hours in northeast Houston, officials told KPRC Local 2 Saturday.

Police said Dora Sublett fired shots from a shotgun from her grandfather's home on Bacher and St. Louis.

A SWAT member returned fire, hitting her in the right arm. She would not surrender for another three hours, according to authorities.


Hours after being shot in the arm, SWAT finally ambushed her when she appeared at a back window waving her finger at officers, police said. She was subdued by a Taser gun.

She will be charged with assault on a peace officer. She has prior convictions of assault.


 

Stopping power dependent on weather and light?

As Sgt. Joe Higgins patrolled the streets of Saba al-Bor, a tough town north of Baghdad, he was armed with bullets that had a lot more firepower than those of his 4th Infantry Division buddies.

As an Army sniper, Higgins was one of the select few toting an M14.

...

Officials at Picatinny Arsenal declined to be interviewed. In an e-mailed response to questions, they called the M855 "an overall good performer." Studies are being conducted to see if it can be made more lethal without violating the Hague Convention, they said.

Larger rounds are not necessarily better, they also said. Other factors such as the weather, the amount of light [emphasis added] and the bullet's angle of entry also figure into how lethal a single shot may be.

Ed.: While light obviously has an impact (Physics 101), I can't imagine it having any practical effect, even at sniper ranges.
 

Jamaica: 'Buy back guns to curtail crime'

Criminologist Bernard Headley, professor in the discipline at the University of the West Indies, has suggested a gun buy-back drive to help to rid Jamaica of illegal firearms.

Headley told The Gleaner yesterday that the undertaking, which has yielded success in some United States cities, would require support from the private sector.

"Since our Jamaican national treasury might be a bit strapped for cash at this time, maybe we should ask the private sector to come up with a substantial portion of the cash," Headley said.
 

Canada: Province wants crackdown on flow of illegal guns

***Complete Text Below***

Global News has learned that Ontario's Attorney General is going to be calling on the Federal government Tuesday for new measures to crack down on the flow of illegal guns across the border. Chris Bentley will suggest that all imported guns be marked with the date of arrival in Canada and the name of the importer, along with the place they were made. Police forces have been calling for the measure, saying it would make it easier to trace the sources of guns used in crime. Bentley will also call on the Federal government to regulate the possession of gun parts in Canada. It's currently illegal to import firearm parts, but once somebody gets them into the country, there's no law covering possession.
 

UK: SWAT Team Mistakes Lara Croft for Crazed Gunman

When police spotted a gun-wielding suspect lurking in the shadows of a suburban front room, their response was swift.

Armed officers burst into the house, shouted at the owner to lie on the floor, and ordered him to surrender his weapon.

But efficiency turned to embarrassment when the "gunman" turned out to be a life-sized model of the video game character Lara Croft, complete with trademark outsized pistols.
 

CA: Oakland is drowning in guns

Consider the 127 people who were murdered in Oakland last year and one similarity leaps out: All but 20 were shot to death.

It's hardly any secret to any of us who live in the city that Oakland is drowning in guns.

And for all of you Second Amendment watchdogs, I'm not talking about guns like my late grandmother's .38 special, which she kept loaded in a nightstand by the side of her bed, despite the crippling arthritis in her "trigger finger."

I'm talking about tens of thousands of illegal semiautomatic handguns and assault weapons in the hands of young men who'll start blasting just because they think someone looked at them funny.

A few years ago, Kathleen Breault was just another suburban grandma, driving countless hours every week, stopping for lunch at McDonald's, buying clothes at the mall, watching TV in the evenings.

...

Convinced the planet's oil supply is dwindling and the world's economies are heading for a crash, some people around the country are moving onto homesteads, learning to live off their land, conserving fuel and, in some cases, stocking up on guns they expect to use to defend themselves and their supplies from desperate crowds of people who didn't prepare.
 

Canada: Miller seeks to ban guns with bylaw

Mayor David Miller wants guns out of Toronto — and he's backing a tough new bylaw that would ban the manufacture and warehousing of guns in the city.

And while Miller says handguns are the particular target of the proposed bylaw, a staff report doesn't distinguish between handguns and rifles and shotguns used in hunting.

The bylaw, proposed in a staff report, would give the city zoning powers to restrict or ban the manufacture and warehousing of firearms.
Miller said he wants to add ammunition to the bylaw as well.

It has taken over 400 years but soon the Tower of London is going to get some of its guns back - at least for a while.

On Monday Falkland Islands-born adventurer, art historian and archaeologist Mensun Bound and a team began work on the recovery of cannon from a sunken Elizabethan ship that went down off the coast of Alderney in the Channel Islands in 1592.

...

Excavation Director Mensun, who is based at St Peter’s College in Oxford, commented: “We are not just bringing up cannon, but also muskets, grenades, swords, rapiers, body a mour and helmets. This was a ship that was supplying an English army fighting in France to prevent a second Armada-style invasion by Spain.”

Toronto – What is it with white, male, middle-aged and older Progressive Conservatives and guns?

John Snobelen, a controversial former education minister famed for riding the range at his ranch in Oklahoma, admitted having an unregistered semi-automatic handgun and a court gave him an absolute discharge, which was lenient considering guns are causing so many deaths in Toronto.

Randy Hillier, a Conservative MPP since October, was accused in the legislature by Aboriginal Affairs Minister Michael Bryant of shooting deer out of season, which caused an uproar.
 

Are students canaries in the free-speech coal mine?

After 12 years of censorship and regimentation, many high school students will graduate this spring with little or no idea about what it means to be a free, active and engaged citizen in a democracy. When they march across the stage to get their diploma, let’s hope someone slips them a copy of the First Amendment – with instructions on how to use it.

Far too many public school officials are afraid of freedom and avoid anything that looks like democracy. Under the heading of “safety and discipline,” administrators censor student religious and political speech, shut down student newspapers and limit student government to discussions about decorations at the prom.

 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
You must understand, therefore, that there are two ways of fighting: by law or by force. The first way is natural to men, and the second to beasts. But as the first way often proves inadequate one must have recourse to the second. — Niccolo Machiavelli in "The Prince."
