When Jimmie Perrin is looking to impress a girl, he’ll point to his black Subaru. “I’ll tell ’em I race autocross,” Perrin said. “Everyone wants to be a race car driver, right?” The 28-year-old from Kenmore stays away from mentioning his other hobby. “That I shoot a gun is a hard hurdle to overcome,” Perrin said. “I don’t really tell people right away because I don’t want to scare anybody. If you’ve never been around it, you’re scared.”

Nassau County police officers responding to a call of shots fired in Roosevelt in June discovered a 21-year-old man dead on the pavement. Potential witnesses would not talk to the police, and it took almost a month for them to track down a suspect in the shooting. Police officials hope that in the near future, a new gunshot-detection system will make such investigations easier. The technology, which the county plans to introduce soon, allows the police to respond to gunshot calls quicker and, they hope, obtain more information before witnesses leave.

The message was loud and clear with this crowd in Albany's West Hill neighborhood: "enough" of the guns that kill. It's a new initiative by the Albany County District Attorney to urge families and victims of gun violence - to stop the bloodshed. "You can disarm voluntarily. You can call Pastor Charlie Muller and make arrangements to turn in your handgun," said Soares. The DA is partnering with Pastor Charlie of the Victory Christian Church, who's already had success getting 47 guns off the streets. By giving out a $150 gift cards for Crossgates Mall in exchange for a fire arm.

Sgt. Dennis Lyons hunched over the computer as images of two different handgun shell casings appeared on a monitor. He pointed out the similarities in the rounded outer edge and center as he discussed how he was able to match a casing from a gun on file to one found at a crime scene. He placed part of one image atop the other, showing how he concluded police needed to track down the gun whose shell casing matched the one from the Utica case. Lyons was using a computerized gun casing database run by the federal government known as NIBIN, short for National Integrated Ballistics Information Network. It's one of two ballistics networks New York police officers use. The other is the Combined Ballistics Information System, called CoBIS.

New Jersey's Assembly has twice-approved legislation limiting people to buying one handgun per month, but the Senate has never followed suit. Now a state senator and urban mayors are vowing to push hard to get final approval for the legislation. "Handgun violence is on the rise, but taking guns off the streets will help to stop the senseless slaughter of our citizens," said Sen. Sandra Bolden Cunningham, D-Hudson. "It's common sense." New Jersey would join Virginia, Maryland and California as states that restrict people to buying one handgun per month.
 

Gun backers wary of Obama, lukewarm on McCain

The National Rifle Association is selling a yard sign plastered with the slogan: "I'm a bitter gun owner and I vote." The dig at Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama — who once suggested working-class people are bitter about their economic circumstances and "cling to guns and religion" — is part of a planned $40 million NRA push to defeat Obama in a number of swing states with large numbers of hunters, including Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Political analyst Stuart Rothenberg said the gun lobby's ability to spend huge sums of money could boost turnout for GOP contender John McCain, who has yet to generate enthusiasm among many conservatives.

Winning, as Richard Nixon once demonstrated, makes some people resentful.

No sooner is such a person victorious than he's looking, not to celebrate, but to audit the tax returns of the loser and all of the loser's friends.

The National Rifle Assn. seems like that kind of winner.

The NRA won big last month with the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in District of Columbia vs. Heller. In a 5-4 decision, the court found for the first time in its history that the Second Amendment confers an individual's right to own firearms. It tossed out D.C.'s 1976 ban on handgun ownership, but said that some restrictions on gun possession may be permitted.

Weapons instructor Geary Chlebus used to teach a self-defense class at Jim's Pawn Shop once a month, but he said now it's in much higher demand.

"Today I had a full class,” he said Saturday. “I've had to turn people away. We are now contemplating having classes twice a week – Saturdays and Sundays."

And he said half of the students he teaches are women.

But these women are doing more than just learning self-defense. They're also buying more guns.

Busy with other things, I let slide commenting upon the 100th anniversary of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. That is not to say I didn't give some careful thought as to the appropriate words I should use when I finally did set my thoughts to Internet ether. I have had occasion to meet many FBI agents, SACs and ASAC's over the past 15 years. Some, a few, were patriotic Americans who did their best to balance their principles against the demands of an agency the Founders would have found abhorrent to individual liberty. For their troubles, they were transferred to out of the way field offices, harrassed and forced to retire early. Frederick Whitehurst comes first to mind.

Thoughtful analysts suggested that a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Second Amendment last month was not the "last word" on Americans' right to keep and bear arms. This week, Washington, D.C. officials proved them correct.

High Court justices, ruling in a case from Washington, D.C., decided that Americans have reasonably broad rights under the Second Amendment. Specifically, they said that Washington's ban on ownership of handguns was unconstitutional.

That was good news. It appeared to be an effective curb on local and state government efforts to virtually eliminate private ownership of firearms.
 

PA: Hidden militias dragged into light

Morgan Jones once built a tank out of scrap metal and drove it to church.

During annual potluck parties at his backwoods Clarion County home, he often wowed guests with his homemade flamethrower.

And sometimes, just for fun, he'd entertain friends by shooting an electrical charge through his body to light a bulb.

His wife, Donna, says he's a little eccentric.
"I never thought it was illegal to be eccentric," she said. "He's a good man. He's not a terrorist or a domestic threat."
Agents from the federal Joint Terrorism Task Force thought otherwise when they arrested Jones last month as he left Sunday Mass in the sleepy hamlet of Lucinda.

An uneasy summer in Champaign grew grimmer this weekend when police released information about yet another violent crime against a University student. Since the end of the spring semester, local police have released information about four crimes involving sexual assault and one armed robbery near campus.

The latest crime sounds all too familiar. A female walking alone in Campustown was attacked by single male at 2:30 in the morning. Had it not been for a good samaritan in the area, the attacker may have done much worse.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. — Robert Heinlein
