"A hi-tech device that can bring speeding cars to a halt at the flick of a switch is set to become the latest weapon in the fight against crime."

"Police forces in Britain and the US have ordered tests of the new system that delivers a blast of radio waves powerful enough to knock out vital engine electronics, making the targeted vehicle stall and slowly come to a stop." ...

So the old car, like the old gun, is worth holding on to.

"With only two months left, the Children's Defense Fund (CDF) today urged the Bush Administration and Congress not to let the 10-year-old federal Assault Weapons Ban expire on September 13, 2004. In spite of broad and bipartisan support for its extension, a leadership vacuum has brought our country to the brink of allowing assault weapons again to be sold and used throughout America."

"President Bush claims to support the ban and has said, 'It makes no sense for assault weapons to be around our society.' But according to House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX), the President still has not even asked the House to take up the ban." ...

"A bill is being considered in New Jersey that would ban hunting with muzzleloaders. An identical bill threatened New Jersey sportsmen during the previous legislative session."

"Senate Bill 1546, sponsored by Sen. John Adler, D-Cherry Hill, was introduced on May 6 and sent to the Senate Law and Public Safety and Veterans' Affairs Committee where it recently had hearings."

"The proposal redefines an illegal, destructive device as any weapon capable of firing a projectile that is .50 caliber or greater. The new definition would ban the state’s most popular muzzleloaders without any legitimate reason." ...

"Congratulations!"

"Through your efforts, you have succeeded in killing the best opportunity that anti-gunners had to extend the ban on roughly two hundred semiautomatic firearms."

"Liberals had intended to offer the semi-auto ban as a 'killer amendment' to class action reform legislation which was considered by the Senate last week. At first, there was every indication that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist was going to allow anti-gunners like Sen. Feinstein to offer the gun ban amendment."

"But after you bombarded Frist's office with demands that he prevent the semi-auto amendment, Frist -- in a parliamentary move that we suggested -- took steps to procedurally block all 'killer amendments,' including the semi-auto ban." ...

"In 23 minutes Thursday, Reps. Marilyn Musgrave and Tom Tancredo, both Colorado Republicans, switched their votes on an amendment to the USA Patriot Act that would have made it more difficult for the government to snoop through our bookshelves."

"The amendment, poised to pass, would have killed the clause that allowed searches of library, Internet and bookstore records without probable cause. As it stands now, the government doesn't have to prove you may have terrorist intentions before it is allowed to rifle through your reading material." ...

"In those 23 minutes, Musgrave apparently had a revelation."

"'During discussion on the floor, it became apparent that this section has never been abused,' she said in a prepared statement, 'This tool ... had not been used -- not once.'"

"A pistol, like the one found by 5-year-old Shae'Den Slette in her family's yard, can do impressive things, she knew."

A Sacramento man has been sentenced to life in prison for the attempted murder of his ex-wife.

Erwin Victor Cardenas was convicted of stalking his former wife and stabbing her as she left for work last December. He was convicted of premeditated attempted murder, stalking, assault with a deadly weapon and disobeying a court order. At the time of the attack, the victim had a restraining order against Cardenas.

"This defendant is truly scary," said Lani Biafore. "He stabbed his ex-wife multiple times in an attempt to kill her, including stabbing her in the mouth to quiet her screams."

Cardenas has continued trying to contract the victim from jail, prosecutors said.

A Gainesville woman who killed her boyfriend over the weekend said it was a case of self-defense.

No charges have been filed against Shannon Cherise Allen. She said Willie Love Alston threatened her with a knife before she shot him at their home early Sunday. Alston died at a hospital Sunday afternoon.

Investigators talked to Allen for several hours before deciding not to file any charges. The case is being turned over to the State Attorney's office, so charges are still possible after further review.

By every measure, large and small, the original vision of limited government by, for and of the people has been folded, spindled and mutilated beyond recognition. When one reads the Constitution, one simply marvels at the distinct difference between its words and our present reality."

"In response to calls for House Judiciary Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-5th District) to act before the federal assault weapons ban dies, Rep. Sensenbrenner released a highly misleading statement suggesting that no action on his part was needed."

"According to a July 8, 2004 press release, Sensenbrenner stated, 'On March 2nd, the Senate overwhelmingly rejected by an 8-to-90 margin legislation that included an assault weapons ban extension along with other provisions.'"

"However, Sensenbrenner failed to note that the 8-90 vote was on a legislative package sponsored by the gun lobby to grant gun makers unprecedented legal immunity, which many lawmakers opposed. ..." ...

A former Siskiyou County deputy sheriff has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison for having sex with two teenage girls in the sheriff's department Explorer program.

William Schmidt was convicted in June 2001 of 19 counts of unlawful sexual conduct with the two high school students. He appealed his sentence, and an appellate court agreed that it was incorrectly calculated.

A recalculation by Judge Roger Kosel resulted in the same sentence - nine years and four months.

Schmidt was the head of the Explorer program in Happy Camp, which both girls belonged to. He was accused of having sexual relationships with each of the girls over a six-year period.

"Mr Roble Mohamoud, a clerk who works for the miraa trader, and who was present during the incident, said the suspects stuffed the cash into their pockets during the raid in which they demanded that Mr Ahmed surrender a gun he allegedly had." ...

A man allegedly killed his girlfriend in front of their nine-year-old son in the Gingindlovu area of KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday, police said on Monday.

Captain Musa Khaba said the man took his son to the woman's home and sent him in to call her.

When they came out, the man drew a pistol and allegedly shot her without saying anything.

The boy ran away in fright. The man also ran away but was later arrested when the family of deceased Sizeni Dube discovered what happened and called the police.

Khaba said the pistol used in the shooting belonged to the man's brother who was also arrested in terms of the new Firearms Control Act for lending it to man.

Both men would appear in the Mtunzini magistrate's court soon, said Khaba.

By this point in our lives, each of us owned a .22 caliber rimfire rifle with which we pursued tree squirrels and cottontails. Frogs, too, were used as a game species to test our hunting accuracy."

"With the rifles we learned many a valuable outdoor lesson. Like how easy it was in an afternoon of shooting to wipe out an adult bullfrog population of a farm pond. Bullfrogs are not social animals; they take some three years just to reach maturity. A limited number of these carnivorous adults dominate the double life of land and water that the pond edge provides. ..." ...
