"The [New York Times] story was widely picked up across the country, but Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute points out that the word 'credible' referring to alleged violations of the Patriot Act simply means that these 34 charges, out of more than 1,000 the department received, would be violations if proven true. In fact, she says, the department has so far found only six charges to be even worthy of investigation, and has since dismissed two of them."

"Right now if a federal agent wanted to know what books you were checking out or what you were looking at on the Internet, librarians have to hand over that information. No questions asked."

" 'In the past, this required a warrant and just cause,' says Iberia Parish Librarian Carla Hosetter. 'In other words if somebody came in and said we want to see this person's records, our answer would be no. You have to go to a judge, give us a warrant, and give us a just cause to look at this.'

"Unfortunately, as he demonstrated this week, Judge Weinstein is a man with an agenda, and he's not going to let himself be encumbered by trivialities like a jury's carefully reasoned findings of fact about the gun industry. On the positive side, his ruling is virtually certain to help supporters of congressional legislation, which passed the House in March, to block such frivolous lawsuits against gun makers." ...

"The first year local turkey hunters held a Conservation Field Day, they hoped to attract 10 children to Phil Bennett's string of log cabins and ponds in the hills of Howard. Nearly four times that many kids appeared."

"This year, they are taking no chances: They are planning for more than 200 in this Saturday's event. Nobody is sure just how many more might turn up, but organizers have 300 T-shirts on hand to give away."

"A ranger in Rocky Mountain National Park shot a black bear thought to be the same bruin that attacked two sleeping campers in their tents earlier this month, officials said Monday."

"The 200-pound male bear, or boar, was killed with a single shot Saturday near a popular day-trip destination called The Pool in Colorado's largest national park, about 75 miles northwest of Denver."

"The bear had stalked two separate groups of hikers who could not scare off the animal by yelling and shouting, said Kyle Patterson, park spokeswoman. Then the boar stared down, circled and approached the ranger who shot it with a Remington 30-06 rifle from a distance of about 30 yards."

FULL STORY BELOW:

A Filipino-Macao businessman was shot dead by two motorcycle-riding hit men near his residence along San Nicolas, Buhangin, Davao City, early morning Tuesday.

Arturo Kwok, 56, owner of Mel Parts Auto Services located along Guerrero Street became the 24th victim of summary executions perpetrated by motorcycle-riding gunmen since June 16.

Police investigation showed that at around 5:30 a.m. Kwok was driving his owner-type jeep with plate number LBP 692 out of his house to go to the Victoria Plaza car park where he jogs when one of the two suspects shot him on the head with a .45 caliber pistol.

The suspects immediately fled onboard a motorcycle after the incident.

One suspect . . . displayed a shotgun.

The second suspect . . . displayed a handgun.

"It is a matter of international law that precludes us from going into someone else's territorial seas. We are authorised in the Solomons; we are not authorised in Papua New Guinea and in the long term that would be a matter between governments."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Janae Wallace's letter "Gun Mentality" (Forum, July 26) shows just how ignorant of the facts some people are -- especially concerning legal firearm ownership and the Second Amendment.

In 1960 Washington, D.C., had a population of 763,956. In that year, there were 81 murders in the District. This was in a time before gun laws and gun registration, when you could buy a handgun in the local drug store. Forty years later the District of Columbia has the strictest gun laws in the country -- you can't even own a handgun in the city unless you are a cop. The year 2000 found Washington with a population that had shrunk to 572,059 while the murder rate soared to 239.

It's clear to me that the unconstitutional gun laws imposed on our nation's capital (and other cities) by the liberal elite have had the very effect that many predicted. They removed the guns only from people who obey the law and would use them for self-defense. The criminals have all the guns they want. And according to the FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics I have quoted here, they use them.

Prosecutors in Baltimore are planning a procedural move today that will transfer the criminal case against Lovell Wheeler from District Court to Circuit Court.

Wheeler has been jailed for four weeks on Reckless Endangerment and firearms charges after police found about 100 home-made firearms at his Highlandtown rowhouse.

He's being held on $2 million bail.

According to a spokeswoman in the State's Attorney's office, Marty Burns, Wheeler will be charged in Circuit Court with three counts of Reckless Endangerment -- one for each of the three people living in the attached house next door. Burns says the neighbors have agreed to testify.

Burns also says the new proceedings would normally postpone the next possible bail review for Wheeler, but she says prosecutors are agreeable to having a bail hearing this week.

"A month before the murder, Shirley and the children returned to Kansas. She and Richard had decided to get a divorce."

"Sometime before 4 that morning, Richard entered the house. He allegedly shot and wounded both Shirley and Rachael. Shirley was able to make it to a closet in the home. With a gunshot wound to her arm, she dialed 911 and told them a man with a gun was in her home." ...

"The gunman found Shirley before police did and shot and killed her."

Oh yeah, rely on the police to protect you. Dial 9-1-1 and die.

"If you approach me, pull a gun and attempt to rob me, then I pull my gun and you shoot me, you cannot claim 'self- defense.' Under Kentucky law, if you initiate or instigate a crime, you become responsible for everything that happens during that crime."

"Jasper Pollini’s probable intentions were to burglarize the home without interruptions. This plan did not work out, since the homeowner discovered him and threatened him with bodily harm. Being caught, he retreated into the woods, and to the getaway car. But he returned, armed, to continue his crimes."

"Byron Pruitt was the victim in this case. Pollini and Crystal Plank got off easy. They should have gotten the death penalty with the 'no-pardon' option."
