"When it comes to these havens for people controllers and Karl Marx wannabes, the idea of 'working within the system' to change things for the better is delusional. The ONLY solution for freedom lovers is to get out and stay out of all seven of these hideous People's Republics."

"How did I come up with the worst places in America? What methodology was used? ..." ...

"A man's home is his castle. So, according to the Castle Doctrine, a man (or woman) is justified in using force to repel an intruder."

"That time-honored concept got sharper teeth in Florida recently, when the Legislature passed, and Gov. Jeb Bush signed, a law that allows Floridians to meet 'force with force' — inside or outside the home."

"By removing the 'duty-to-retreat' clause from the previous state statutes, and by extending the Castle Doctrine to the streets and even to cars, Florida became the first state to empower residents to stand up to the thugs who would invade their property and do them harm."

"The Evening Standard today demonstrates how easy it is to buy a gun on the streets of London. With only £100, two reporters walked into a high-street shop and bought a Walther airgun."

"Airguns can only be purchased by people over 17 and there is a legal restriction on their power. However, some legal models can be converted into deadly weapons and used by criminals to terrorise their victims."

"The Government plans to outlaw the manufacture, import and sale of 'realistic' replica and imitation guns. The Violent Crime Reduction Bill, published this week, says the ban applies to those weapons that 'any reasonable person could mistake for a firearm'."

"City Arms opened about four months ago amid much controversy, said Pacifica [CA] resident Nancy Hall, who led the charge to keep the gun shop out of her town."

"'We had said, this is the vulnerable thing about this shop, its all-glass front,' she said. 'That's exactly what happened. He rammed his car in there.'"

-------
Submitter's Note: So let me guess: if the gun shop didn't have an all-glass front she would not have tried to keep the gun shop out of town? Maybe they should outlaw all-glass storefronts.

PA: Gun Lobby Darling Arlen Specter Has Nerve Holding Philly Hearing Monday on Youth Violence While Gun Trafficking Rages On; Gun Violence Prevention Groups Call Specter's Committee Hearing 'Bogus'

"News that US Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) has scheduled a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, which he chairs, on youth violence for Monday morning at the National Constitution Center was met with severe skepticism by regional and national gun violence groups. According to press reports, Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Joseph Biden (D-DE), both committee members, and Rick Santorum (R-PA), who is not, will participate."

"Both Specter and Santorum are closely tied to the gun lobby. Specter received a pre-primary endorsement from the National Rifle Association in 2004. Both Pennsylvania Senators voted in 2004 against renewing the federal Assault Weapons Ban, which expired months later, and have consistently upheld the gun lobby's insistence that easy access to guns be maintained or increased, despite raging gun violence in beleaguered cities like Philadelphia and Camden."

"Unfortunately, it now appears that Best Buy has joined the list of business ban hypocrites - corporations whose policy seems to suggest that they believe Ohioans are less likely to be responsible with concealed firearms than their customers in other states."

-------
KABA News Assistant Bruce Krafft contacted BestBuy about their "no guns" policy. Here is the reply he received.

Bruce,

Thank you for contacting Best Buy. I'm Ken with Customer Care and I apologize I was not able to respond sooner.

We appreciate your concern with our stores displaying signs banning guns on the premises. We are committed to abiding to all state and local regulations, and we are also committed to the safety of our customers and employees. Best Buy does not have a company-wide policy prohibiting customers from lawfully carrying hand guns in our stores. Signs prohibiting the lawful carrying of guns in our stores have been removed or will be removed in the near future.

We apologize for any misunderstanding this matter has caused. ...

More news from the gun free utopia. Even the crows are aggressive and without fear of defensive action.

All that's really needed is some common-sense crow control.

-------
"Joggers are today being warned about violent crows in London parks after an attack left a man bloodied and needing hospital treatment."

"Justin Keay was swooped on by two crows in what experts have called a severe case of "mobbing" - where two or more birds gang up on an assumed predator to keep them away from their young."

"Now other runners are being told to stay well away from fledgling crows to avoid further attacks."
