A man accused of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon after he wounded two brothers in a confrontation outside a Simi Valley bowling alley in December 2004 was found not guilty, his attorney said today.

"This year, it may have saved him from prison."

"Freeman, owner of Marvin's Electronics in Jacksonville's Murray Hill neighborhood, has claimed self-defense in shooting 26-year-old Vincent Hudson five times in his store on the night of May 31. Their stories differ on the nature of the confrontation -- it was either an attempted robbery or a request for money -- but Hudson survived and Freeman won't face charges."

"Regarding the June 30 editorial 'Global gun control': With 100 million AK-47s in circulation, should we put our trust in the United Nations for global gun control? Based on the U.N. performance in Rwanda, we cannot."

"In 1994, the U.N. force in Rwanda first disarmed the population and then withdrew and did nothing while an estimated 800,000 people were slaughtered. Guns in the hands of Rwandans would have prevented this massacre."

"The answer is not global gun control. Private citizens need guns for their own protection. Every year in the United States between 2,000 and 3,000 criminals are killed by their would-be victims. U.S. citizens use their guns more than a million times a year to protect life and property." ...

"Yesterday was the last day for comment by interested parties on the bill. The demonstration by the Gun Owners of SA organisation (Gosa) formed part of efforts to have the firearms law scrapped."

"In June, Safety and Security Minister Charles Nqakula made an about turn on existing gun licences, including in the legislation a clause that insists all existing legal guns be relicensed, replacing an earlier suggestion of a national audit of all legal firearms. Nqakula and gun owners have since been at loggerheads over the proposed legislation." ...

There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
