One of the inventors, Joe Curran, said the backpacks are a defensive move, and are not playing up the paranoia that schools are unsafe, according to the news station.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., argues that the amendment only provides for a militia, which America already has provided as a National Guard.

Therefore, citizens don't have a right to arm themselves.

A government-controlled militia, in a disarmed society, would invite national tyranny. The Second Amendment was created to protect against tyranny.

College students are pushing for their schools to allow them to carry guns on campus, saying they should have the right to protect themselves in a situation like the one in which 32 Virginia Tech students and faculty were fatally shot.

Andrew Dysart, a George Mason University senior, organized a chapter of Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, which hopes to persuade legislators to overturn a Virginia law that allows universities to prohibit students, faculty and staff members with gun permits from carrying their weapons onto campus.

OK, it wasn't a typical class. Between the post-shoot steak dinner catered by a professional chef to the (legal) cannon and automatic weapon firing demonstrations, there was a concerted effort to help Zumbo understand that AR-15 shooters and hunters aren't crazed right-wing militants waiting for an apocalyptic one-world government takeover.

I think the class was a big success, measured by the grin on Zumbo's face as he stood ankle-deep in smoking shell casings after shooting a machinegun. I honestly believe he walked away with a better understanding that no one in the shooting world should be thrown off the bus when it comes to gun control issues.

Recently the news media has covered the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Father Michael Pfleger leading protests against a suburban Chicago gun shop. This political activity is directed at closing the gun shop and passing anti-Second Amendment legislation in Illinois.

Who funds this political activity? Are tax deductible donations to the Chicago Catholic Archdiocese and Operation Push being used to crush our constitutional freedoms of the Second Amendment?

DeBose told Gun Week, the periodical of The Second Amendment Foundation, that he was taking a walk around his quiet residential neighborhood on the evening of May 1 when he was accosted by two men, one of whom was armed with a handgun. The unarmed DeBose took the only option available to him — he ran to a neighbor’s home and pounded on the door. The hoodlums, apparently worried DeBose’s yelling would attract witnesses, jumped in their car and drove away.

Long an advocate of stricter gun-control laws, DeBose, along with his wife and several neighbors, have since enrolled in classes to obtain concealed-carry permits.

Don Burrows needed some cash for a recent scuba diving trip. So the East Texan drove to Fort Worth, taped a "For Sale" sign to his back and walked around a gun show, hoping to sell extra ammunition he had stockpiled. "I needed some extra beer money," he said with a grin. There, he was among gun aficionados privately peddling guns and ammo, saying it's a good way to cash in on belongings they want to unload. But in the wake of the Virginia Tech killings and other gun violence this year, critics are calling for more regulations on everything from gun shows to background checks.

An 85-year-old man whose home was burglarized three times within a week decided to take matters into his own hands. Alton Tillman left his home at his regular time Tuesday, but doubled back and quietly went inside, finding emptied drawers, items in disarray and someone's feet sticking out from under a bed.
Tillman ordered him out, then called 911.
When officers arrived, they found Tillman pointing a handgun at a 16-year-old boy standing against a wall.
Police Capt. Patrick Whitney said people should call officers rather than acting on their own.
"We're not Superman either, but at least we do have the equipment and the training," he said.

"... He argues that generally in Israel, 'If terrorists want to engage in low-grade, low-tech terror, we are powerless to stop it.'"

"Israel has indeed had remarkable success in stopping terrorist gun attacks. Israelis realized that the police and military simply can't be there all the time ..."

"So how did Israel solve the problem? By encouraging Israelis to carry concealed handguns. ..."

"Today, about 15 percent of Jewish adults in Israel have permits to carry concealed handguns. ..." ...

...residency cards fitted with powerful computer chips programmed by the same company will be issued to most citizens.

Data on the chip will include not just the citizen’s name and address but also work history, educational background, religion, ethnicity, police record, medical insurance status and landlord’s phone number. Even personal reproductive history will be included...

Closed circuit video footage from the scene of Friday's shooting in Jerusalem's Old City shows the Israeli Arab assailant grabbing a security guard's pistol and shooting him repeatedly at close range.
The footage, which was released on Sunday by Jerusalem police, belies claims by the attacker's family that he was shot by the security guard's partner without cause.

The video clearly shows Ahmed Mahmoud Khatib, 29, from Kafr Manda in the western Galilee, following the guards, Alex Nepelvich and Mikhail Popov, as they patrolled the narrow cobblestone streets of the Old City. Then, as the guards start to enter a kiosk, Khatib snatches Popov's gun and runs away.

"The number of licensed gun owners in Massachusetts is falling. In the past six years, gun licenses have dropped by 25 percent, a decline driven by more restrictive laws, higher fees and a gradual change in culture, according to law enforcement and gun owners."

"Some in law enforcement are applauding the decline, but caution that there are still plenty of illegal guns on the streets."

"'Fewer firearms on the street makes life safer for everyone,' said Quincy Police Chief Robert Crowley. 'The average citizen who has a gun 24-7 I don’t believe has the experience, knowledge and training to know when and if they should use a firearm.'"
