HARRISBURG -- Proposals to limit handgun purchases to one per month may finally see some legislative debate in the state House of Representatives.

Whether support for the idea will gather any momentum is another question, considering that hunters and other gun owners have a vast number of allies in the Legislature.

Empirical evidence suggests that gun control is a "total failure" in curbing crime, the organisation Gun Owners of South Africa (Gosa) said on Monday.

"It creates a community where only the government, which is then free to abuse its power as was the case in apartheid South Africa and Nazi Germany, and criminals own firearms," said Gosa coordinator Charl van Wyk.

FLINT- After months of not having a shooting range because of concerns from nearby Bishop Airport, Flint police personnel began going out to Williams Gun Sight & Outfitters in Davsion Township to practice and test their marksmanship on Tuesday.

Last fall, a Federal Aviation Administration employee at Bishop claimed he heard a bullet whistle past him as he worked at a runway.

Supporters of a planned Kent County Gun Amnesty Buyback program have raised $10,000 of the $50,000 they need to meet their goal.

County commissioner Paul Mayhue, who heads the committee working on the project, said the goal is to offer cash for guns taken off the streets.

"We understand that gun buybacks will not stop street violence, and true criminals are not likely to turn in their weapons," Mayhue said.

If we could just ban guns, life would be Utopia, right? That's what the gun grabbers would have you believe. Get rid of the guns and all violent crime will be gone.

Tell that to Great Britain. Handguns were banned in 1998 in an effort to reduce violence. Two years later, handgun crime was up 40% as criminals no longer had to fear their victims being armed unless they saw a long gun.

BAGHDAD • “Do you have a gun? Do you mind if we check around?” says the polite but firm US soldier as he conducts house-to-house searches for illegal weapons in Baghdad's western Ghazalia neighbourhood.

Iraqi and US forces have launched what amounts to an operation to recover Baghdad from the grip of sectarian death squads and insurgent groups, whose reign of terror has left thousands dead in the past few months.
 

MO: Nothing routine for the police

The Belleville Police officers sent to the Belleville Inn & Suites on Aug. 6 probably considered their assignment to be routine: Pick up for the O'Fallon Police a man wanted for questioning in connection with a theft.

But as we were harshly reminded that day, there is nothing routine about police work. Even a fairly simple traffic stop for a burned-out taillight can turn deadly in the blink of an eye.

Part of the violence that is engulfing us comes from police officers who are fast on the draw and loose with their guns.

Almost every day we hear about officers involved in gunplay for numerous reasons. The report that a policeman drew his gun to shoot someone is no longer news.

Someone who shoots a burglar in self-defense will be protected against lawsuits filed by the criminal or his family. The new law by Rep. Eric LaFleur, D-Ville Platte, shields crime victims from lawsuits if they use violence against criminals in the belief they were in physical danger, following a similar group of new laws nationwide.

Fall may belong to football, but everyone knows that big game is America's game.

More folks hunt than buckle on a chin strap, and their pulse must have quickened when they heard that a professional hunting league is being launched in October, right here in our back yard.

The World Hunting Association will kick off the sport Oct. 5 at the 1,000-acre Lost Arrow Resort on the Water, near Gladwin, as eight hunters pursue deer with tranquilizer arrows and darts.
 

PA: Extorting sex with a badge
Submitted by: Anonymous

Philadelphia Police Officer James Fallon spent many midnight shifts on patrol - not for crime, but for sex.

His partner, Timothy Carre, says he tried to warn their bosses, but nobody paid attention.

Hundreds of police officers across the country have turned from protectors to predators, using the power of their badge to extort sex, an Inquirer review shows.

Most police departments do little to identify the offenders, and even less to stop them. Unlike other types of police misconduct, the abuse of police power to coerce sex is little addressed in training, and rarely tracked by police disciplinary systems.

This official neglect makes it easier for predators to escape punishment and find new victims.

After the woman reported the incident to police, Mr. Poole allegedly returned to the house around 5 a.m. Monday. The woman heard a noise, got up and found the suspect in her kitchen. She pointed her gun at him and asked him to leave, but when he kept advancing towards her, she shot him.

City resident Kenneth Whitney believes the real victims of gun violence are those usually in bed by the time the shots are fired on the streets. "These little children who have to sleep under their beds because they hear gunshots in their community, they are the innocent victims," said Whitney, 45. Like many residents and business owners, he is frustrated by the gun violence that has plagued the city's southwest section for far too long.
