While the British Army's acquisition of the FN Minimi (which served as the basis of the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon) seems to indicate that they have given up on the L86 as an automatic rifle, it has not meant failure. On the contrary, the L86 is still expected to stay in service, as a "designated marksman rifle". This is an effort to make something out of a system that failed in its initial role (drawing comparisons to the French Chauchat machine gun that plagued French and American soldiers in world War I). But it also is not the first time that a weapon system became something far from what it was intended to be.

Sanford Abrams began selling guns from his shop in Baltimore County in 1996 and almost immediately started losing track of them.

In 1997, he couldn't account for 45. In 2001, it was 133. In 2003, there were 422 firearms missing -- more than a quarter of his inventory -- including semiautomatic assault rifles, 12-gauge shotguns and Glock 9mm pistols, according to federal investigators.

This year, a decade after he started losing track of guns, Abrams' store lost its firearms license. But he still intends to sell guns.

The House of Representatives last week passed H.R. 5013, the Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act to prevent law enforcement officials from confiscating the firearms of law-abiding citizens during natural disasters. This legislation passed with bipartisan support by a vote of 322-99.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, many citizens realized their worst fears - they were stranded in abandoned neighborhoods without phones or the means to summon help. To make matters even worse, many were forced to relinquish their firearms, which they possessed in compliance with federal and state laws.
 

DC: Forum: Exception to right of self-defense

Oliver North explored the subject of self-defense in his July 23 column: " 'As a sovereign nation, Israel has every right to defend itself from terrorist activities,' said President Bush. 'I fully support Israel's right to defend itself,' said Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, New York Democrat. [Ed. Emphasis mine.] 'Israel must defend itself, and it had the right to do so,' said French Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy."

Editor's note: While the article goes on to talk about Serbian self-defense, Senator Clinton obviously doesn't extend the same right of self-defense to American citizens as she does to the State of Israel.

New York City has reached a landmark deal with two of 15 gun dealers it sued over illegal sales that will allow authorities to conduct undercover surveillance on the companies and videotape sales.

The city filed the suit against the 15 gun dealers from five states in U.S. federal court in May after it launched an undercover sting operation that found dealers allowed convicted felons to buy guns through surrogates.

Former Fort Wayne Mayor Paul Helmke was not quiet during his first week as the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. He forcefully spoke out against federal legislators’ efforts to protect gun dealers supplying firearms to criminals and held Florida Gov. Jeb Bush accountable for gun laws that are making that state one of the two most violent states in the nation. Those who hoped Helmke’s first weeks in Washington would be tranquil were disappointed. Those who hoped he would take the leadership skills he gained as a mayor and use them to advocate for common-sense gun regulations that serve the interest of public safety were not.

Weak Idaho laws governing how law-enforcement evidence - including guns - are stored, recorded and destroyed likely contributed to the former Idaho Falls prosecutor taking dozens of firearms from the local Police Department, the Idaho Falls Post-Register reported.

Kimball Mason, 52, is serving one to five years in prison after pleading guilty in April to two counts of grand theft and one count of falsifying a public document.

Ricky Beckham, 29, was charged yesterday with assaulting gun store worker Greg Carvell with the intent to rob Small Arms International in Penrose last Thursday.

Mr Carvell, 33, shot Beckham in the stomach at close range with a handgun. Details about the case emerged at an Auckland District Court hearing yesterday when Judge Anne Kiernan outlined the police version of events.

It is alleged that Beckham took a machete with a one-metre handle out of a sports bag and went into an office at the back of the store. He advanced on Mr Carvell, saying: "Give us your guns. I want your guns."

The disappearance of dozens of firearms issued to the Durban metro police department has blown wide open the haphazard management of arms and ammunition by municipal police services.

State-issued firearms have been used in robberies and hijackings in Durban and surrounds, fuelling fears that criminals are buying guns from corrupt police officers. More than a hundred police guns may have entered the pool of illegal firearms in the area.

In a true, totalitarian society such as the old Soviet Union, crime rates are usually low because of the crushing state control of all its citizens. Supposedly, street crime in Moscow in the USSR was rare, probably because the state itself was the biggest criminal. In contrast, in the European Union of today, which is not a totalitarian society, at least not yet,crime rates are booming in major cities.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. — RONALD REAGAN (1986)
