"Judith Kuntz fired from about 10 feet, hitting the intruder in the chest, said Agent Lou Heyn of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office. The man, who carried no identification, staggered into the yard, where he collapsed and died. Investigators still aren't sure who he was, or whether he had a connection to the neighborhood."

Those served with these secret orders are gagged from telling anyone about it. Lawmakers need to make sure these letters aren't used to gather information about lawful political or religious activities that are protected under the Constitution."

"You know gun control isn’t crime control – I venture to say most MP’s know our measures have made us less safe – but we’ve got to convince the condo-dwellers in the concrete jungles of the big cities who make up the majority of Canadians read that 'voters' that gun control increases crime and threatens their lives."

"It's a quiet kind of crisis, not much press, but it is no less real. Children and teens shot, many in gang warfare. In Los Angeles, nearly 80 children were shot in 2005, including a young man riding his bicycle in the alley by his house. In Cleveland, two young teens were shot within weeks of each other outside the same community center. But not only in our nation's cities, now the violence is moving to the suburbs and even to rural areas."

Submitter's comment: My wife, a friend, and I took a handgun course at a local private range. Our local newspaper's outdoor writer joined us.

The online version doesn't do justice to the fact that the photo of me goes all the way across the page. HUGE. For the safety record, the photo from in front of the firing line was staged. My pistol was unloaded (triple-checked), finger never inside the trigger guard. (And even then it made me nervous.)

"Police officers already watch live feeds from surveillance cameras in housing projects throughout the five boroughs, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said."

"The new cameras, however, would not be monitored. Instead, they would record high-quality digital videos that would be reviewed in the event of a crime to look for evidence. Police also believe the cameras would serve as a deterrent."

"Residents in this community were still fixing shattered windows and bullet-pocked walls when a lawyer issued an apology from sheriff's deputies who fired 120 rounds at an unarmed driver in a Compton neighborhood."

"The televised news conference earlier this month was a rare instance of officers defying a common police taboo against 'mea culpas' - based on the fear of lawsuits or prosecution."

"Yet the apology was not expected to prompt severe repercussions in any potential lawsuits because it was carefully worded as an expression of sympathy, not an admission of guilt, according to experts familiar with police abuse cases."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? — Patrick Henry, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836
