NY: Panic button couldn’t protect woman
Submitted by: Robert Schaffrath

"Merline Port-Louis knew she was a woman in danger."

"In the weeks before she was shot to death early Saturday morning, her estranged boyfriend, Marlon Fann, called and threatened to kill her and her family three times, Nassau police said."

"Port-Louis took the appropriate measures: She made copies of the threats, filed charges with police and got a panic button to press in case of emergency."

"But neither her efforts nor those of police were enough to stop Fann from pulling out a gun and shooting Port-Louis in the driveway of her New Cassel home, and then calling her mother and threatening to do the same to her and police if they tried to arrest him, police said."

-------
Submitters Note: In Nassau County, a pistol permit costs $299 and takes a minimum of 6 months to process. Good luck!

"If state Sen. Joe Dunn has his way, here's an upcoming 'CSI' story line:"

"Bad guy abducts schoolgirl on sidewalk. When bystander tries to intervene, suspect fires shot into the air to scare him off."

"Crime scene investigator Gil Grissom calculates angle and velocity of shot, finds spot where bullet landed and retrieves it from the ground. Serial number on bullet leads police to kidnapper."

"A serial number on a bullet?"

"That's the idea behind Dunn's SB357. The controversial bill sponsored by Attorney General Bill Lockyer would make California the first political entity in the world to require that all handgun ammunition sold or owned in the state be stamped with a tiny mark — a string of numbers, a bar code, anything that uniquely identifies the box it came from."

"... it was early during World War II (1939-1945) in 1941 before the Garand M-1 rifle was issued in quantity: to the U.S. Army. The Garand likewise saw action again during the Korean War (1950-1953). It remained the basic weapon of both the U.S. Army and Marine Corp., though it was in use by all the Armed Forces. In May 1957 the Garand M-1 rifle was officially replaced by the newer M-14 rifle. The Garand M-1 rifle was a .30 caliber (.30-06 Springfield), eight shot, gas operated, semi-automatic weapon. In contrast the M-14 rifle was .30 caliber (7.62mm NATO/.308 Winchester), select fire (both full and semi-automatic), incorporated a 20 round box magazine, and featured an improved gas system. Like the M-1 it had replaced earlier, the M-14 became obsolete with the adoption of the M-16 rifle (Colt AR-15): caliber 5.56mm (.223 Remington) around 1967-68, during the Vietnam War (1961-1975)."

Seegars v Gonzalez: Government's opposition to rehearing... (Blog)

"A few months ago I posted commentary on the petition for rehearing in Seegars v Gonzalez. That petition followed the decision by the DC Court of Appeals. If you're having trouble keeping track, well, so am I... at any rate, the way we left the case, the ruling from the three-judge panel was unfavorable, but still left us better off than the ruling pre-appeal. (It's better to lose on a technicality that lets the court dodge the issue than to lose on the merits and set even more unfavorable precedent for the 2nd Amendment). The petition requests a rehearing, and of course the government has the opportunity to respond and argue against such a hearing; that response is what I will be commenting on."
