CO: Kids, guns don't mix
Submitted by: Mark A. Taff

Since about 40 percent of American households with children also contain guns, any study that has the potential of improving gun safety merits a close look.

One such study was released earlier this month, and it may have shattered a commonly held perception that when dealing with guns in the home, adolescents are more responsible than younger children.

The robbery of a Sherman Oaks pharmacy was foiled Friday afternoon by a store employee who confronted the would-be robber and shot him, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department said. Initial reports indicated that the employee had taken the intruder's gun and turned it on him, but police later retracted that account and said they still were investigating how the shooting occurred.

The Ruffed Grouse Society, a national conservation dedicated to early successional forest birds, is making an unusual offer to attract lifetime members.

Normally, a Life Sponsorship costs $10,000 payable in four equal annual installments. But right now, the RGS will give new members who pay in full, a 20 gauge Kimber Valier Grade II side-by-side shotgun -- a $5,000 value.

The offer is limited to 100 participants and will be available until gun inventories are gone.

Jacob Carlson said from the outset that he shot and killed his brother-in-law, Akron Police Detective Michael Beitko, in self-defense and in defense of his wife.

University of Akron law professor J. Dean Carro says the facts of the case seem to support Carlson's claims, regardless of the conflicting witness accounts of when the shots were fired.
 

IA: On the Schmitt List: Our nation's biggest battle

While our nation's founding fathers made crystal clear the importance of every citizen's right to privacy, they also made equally clear the importance of every citizen's right to protect himself or herself and to be protected.

The right to bear arms and the need for a sound federal defense seems to be as ingrained in the Constitution as is the right of privacy and free speech.
 

PA: Sneak attack on gun owners

They’re at it again. Gun-control advocates and their friends in state government are once again trying to nibble away at your right to own firearms. But you’ve got to hand it to them, as they’re quite crafty.

This latest proposal, which is merely a retread of Gov. Ed Rendell’s 2002 campaign proposal to restrict firearm ownership, would limit handgun purchases to one per month.

MI: State shuts down fundraising lottery to save dove hunt

Stamps and sweepstakes tickets are flying like shrapnel in the latest battle over Michigan's mourning doves.

When it comes to the fate of this bird of peace, it seems nobody wants to play nice.

This week, the state attorney general's office halted a Citizens for Wildlife Conservation sweepstakes that was raising funds to help defeat the Nov. 7 ballot proposal to restore the state's dove hunting ban.

Essentially, the problem was using the word "purchase" rather than "donation" for the $5 raffle tickets.
 

MI: Buying in to buyback

No one should think the gun buyback project slated for Kent County in a couple of weeks is a panacea for gun violence. It isn't. But the buyback can reduce the number of weapons on the streets and in homes: guns that could be stolen, used in crimes or cause tragic accidents if picked up by curious children.

A lot of guns were turned in but local law enforcement officials considered the buyback a bust because most of the weapons collected were old, inoperable and not likely to be used in street crimes. Past buybacks nationwide had similar results.

UNARMED police were sent to search homes in the airline terror plot - despite a cache of weapons being uncovered in one house.

It is thought police chiefs did not want to risk another bungle like the Forest Gate raid or the shooting of Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes.

Of course, she's not alone. Despite billions of tax dollars flowing into new security measures in the last five years, repeated checks by undercover government investigators have shown there's little difficulty in sneaking knives, guns and even bomb components through airport checkpoints. And those are the places where security is supposed to be the tightest.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A woman has been charged with trying to board a plane at Lehigh Valley International Airport with a loaded gun and pepper spray, authorities said.

Linda K. Krisko, 47, of Bethlehem, was charged with two felonies for the incident Friday, FBI spokeswoman Jerri Williams said. Krisko has a permit to carry a concealed weapon but it is still illegal to carry a weapon onto an airplane, Williams said.

Reader Longnecker writes:
"Three letters were published in response to Price's hysteria (and which mentoned KABA among others) - the first two hit the mark, and the third misses the point entirely."

Ed Note: Registration required, first-born child, etc.

As always, the anti-gun crowd could use a little time on the range, because for all targeting of violence, all they hit is the innocent bystander.

Excellent letters. All three of them clarify the issue.

UK: US facing wave of murders and gun violence

From Kansas City, Missouri, to Indianapolis, Indiana, places that rarely attract notice on annual FBI crime surveys are seeing significant increases in murder. Boston, once a model city in America's battle against gun violence, is poised to eclipse last year's homicide tally, which was the worst in a decade.

Explanations vary -- from softer gun laws to budget cuts, fewer police on the beat, more people in poverty and simple complacency. But many blame a national preoccupation with potential threats from abroad.
 

Terrorists or teens?: School shooters not the same as suicide bombers

AT FIRST Blush, it's just outrageous. Across the country, teenagers are being tried as terrorists for plots to shoot their enemies in the lunchroom. In many cases, they have been charged under terrorism laws intended to keep us safe from al-Qaida, not from anguished Goths with dreams of grandeur.

Prosecutors say that angry young men amassing guns and bombs really is terrorism, that the students killed in 1999 at Columbine High School are as much terrorism victims as the workers killed in the World Trade Center in 2001.

Jenn Coffey is a nurse, mother of a 12-year-old son and owner of a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson she bought because she likes the way it fits in a purse.

Coordinator of the N.H. chapter of the Second Amendment Sisters, a national women's gun-advocacy organization, Coffey shot her first round in the back yard of her husband's former Kentucky home and has enjoyed target shooting since. Pistol shooting has become her favorite, while launching a mission to protect the Second Amendment -- the right for a "well-regulated militia" and to keep and bear arms.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety. Nor, are they likely to end up with either. — Benjamin Franklin
