"Guns - specifically assault weapons: We concur generally with President Bush's position in support of a ban on the sale and possession of truly automatic (assault) weapons - e.g., those weapons that fire multiple rounds when the trigger is pulled but once, and keep firing until the trigger is released or the magazine spent." ...

"What everyday citizen among us needs an assault weapon any more than he needs a machine gun, flame-thrower, bazooka, or tank?"

What everyday citizen among us needs to justify a constitutionally protected purchase to a newspaper editor or a government?

"Robert Strickland was walking toward the Elbow Lounge on the 7300 block of Macknear Field in Detroit at 12:50 a.m. when he was approached by three teens. One brandished a gun and demanded money, said Homicide Inspector Craig Schwartz."

"Strickland, 57, gave the young men $80 and credit cards. One of the teens then fired at Strickland, striking him in the stomach, Schwartz said."

"The teens fled. Strickland opened fire with two handguns he was carrying legally -- a .25-caliber and a 9mm -- Schwartz said. He fired 17 shots, striking the 15-year-old suspect in the back and an 18-year-old suspect in the back of the left leg. The third suspect, Antonio Harris, 18, was killed after being struck in the head, Schwartz said. All three were from Detroit."

"After years of collecting money from gun taxes, the City Council has decided where to put the funds and how to use them."

"The council Monday night established a reserve and separate expense account for anti-violence programs. In addition, the council earmarked $74,000 for anti-violence projects for the next fiscal year. The money had been collected and placed in the city's general fund."

"The reserve was established through Measure H, which was passed by voters in June 1998. Measure H taxes gun dealers in town 3 percent on their gross receipts from concealable handgun and ammunition sales, said Cynthia Battenberg, assistant to the city manager. San Leandro has collected nearly $220,000 from this tax."

The article's original title (somewhat dishonest, and certainly misleading), when it ran in the printed version of the paper, was "Neighbor is fatally shot during alleged break-in". The current headline is from the updated on-line version.

The prosecutor is deciding whether or not to file charges, and the police are checking to see if the man holds a valid Firearms Owner Identification (FOID) card.

Give this man a medal for protecting his family.

"The disguised motivations for drug prohibition and its associated propaganda had now infested their way to the consciousness of most Americans, and those who did not use drugs became afraid that they were a 'scourge' of mankind. Indeed, drug consumption was on the rise, culminating with the indulgent activities of Woodstock, the 'Be-Ins' in San Francisco, music groups like the Grateful Dead, and educators like Timothy Leary who encouraged drug use. The mainstream culture of the U.S. had become exasperated over this issue, wanted something to be done, and was prepared to vote for political candidates who would take action to stem the tide of widespread drug use."

Thailand: Does a teacher need to tote a gun? (Letter)

I can perhaps understand why certain individuals in the military, police or other government or security services might need a weapon for personal protection, but what puzzles me is why a teacher needs a gun. Is it enough just to say I like guns and/or I want one, and you are sold a weapon? Is it not also necessary to demonstrate need?

Kevin Alton

Well, Kevin, maybe teachers need to be able to protect themselves from dangerous little thieves and violent criminals to whom you refer in your rather naive and uninformed letter.

"Recently Colorado was shocked by the tragic accidental shooting of 11-year-old Sahil Ahmed. He was shot and killed by a friend who thought a handgun was empty because the magazine was removed. This tragic mistake has occurred before, and many times manufacturers have been urged to change designs so a bullet doesn't stay in the chamber after the magazine is removed - or to at least place an indicator warning that a bullet is in the chamber."

-------
A little firearms education, common sense and parental guidance should have prevented said tragedy. But Tom Mauser wants to hold the gun industry responsible for the stupidity and irresponsibility of parents.
