"A Palestine police corporal was injured at his home Monday afternoon when the .45-caliber pistol he was cleaning accidentally discharged, striking him in the left hand."

"Charles Steven Petrovich, 47, of Palestine was in a bedroom at his residence on FM 1137 off of Texas 84, east of the city limits, when the gun accidentally discharged at about 4:50 p.m. Monday, according to Anderson County Sheriff's Capt. Greg Taylor."

" 'He (Petrovich) was breaking it down, and it went off,' Taylor said this morning."

"The captain said a '.410 shotgun round' from the pistol penetrated 'the left, meaty part of his hand.' "

"The gunfire at the West Indian American Day Carnival Parade started after an accidental bump, the kind that most people walk away from without incident.
But Anthony Bartholomew did not walk away."

"The Brooklyn college student was shot to death Monday - all because he bumped into a man dancing wildly in the street, police sources said yesterday."

"Bartholomew, 20, the father of a month-old daughter, was pushing against the throngs of people on Eastern Parkway when he jostled a fellow reveler flailing his arms to a thumping drumbeat from a nearby float."

"The dancing man allegedly responded by pulling out a weapon and squeezing off two bullets, hitting Bartholomew once in the head."

"Upon realizing the car had been stolen, they turned around and followed it and called 911 on the cell phone, Knoll said."

"Carrying a licensed concealed handgun into city hall or police headquarters has been banned in Plano for years. Not anymore."

"A new state law went into effect Monday that stripped cities of the right to prohibit concealed handguns in many governmental buildings . . . . The change irked some city officials."

" 'I'm not at all happy with this,' said Mayor Pat Evans. 'We asked the Legislature not to change the law and to let cities have the choice on whether or not to ban them.' "

" 'It's unfair to our employees who have to worry that the person standing across from them that may have a gun in their pocket,' said City Councilman Phil Dyer." ...
-------

Simple solution: don't disarm the city employees. Complaining that they are defenseless while demanding that they be defenseless is like complaining that a declawed cat can't climb to get away from a hungry dog. But while you can't reinstall a cat's claws, you can restore the right to self-defense of free people.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Michigan Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling that communities can't ban handguns from public buildings.

The decision is a victory for the Lansing-based Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners. The group challenged Ferndale's ban on guns in city buildings.

The Michigan Court of Appeals threw out the ban earlier this year when it ruled in favor of three residents who had sued to defeat the ban.

Gun-rights groups are praising both the appeals court and state Supreme Court's decision.

Ferndale Mayor Bob Porter said he is stunned the court ignored widespread support for the ordinance.

South Africa: "Yes, licensing of firearms has to be very strict"

An editorial rant by the leader of South Africa's primary gun prohibition organization...
-------
"What is bad for the gun dealer might just be good for the South African public overall."

"Gun violence is a major problem in South Africa. We have one of the highest firearm-related murder rates in the world; more than 30 people die from gunshot wounds every day (more than from all forms of motor car accidents combined) and guns are used in 80% of armed robberies, which have soared in number in the last few years."

"Some might blame this on illegal guns, but the divide between legal and illegal guns gets more and more blurred all the time." ...
-------

The divide gets blurrier in direct proportion to the advent of new, more restrictive gun prohibitions -- because more people are turned into criminals at the stroke of a pen, and more people are choosing to disobey laws that place them at the mercy of the many armed and violent thugs on the loose.

Court Rejects Gunmakers' Appeal

WASHINGTON (AP) - "Two gunmakers who challenged Congress' authority to ban the manufacture, sale and possession of semiautomatic assault weapons lost a Supreme Court appeal Monday."

"The court, without comment, rejected an appeal that said Congress exceeded its power to regulate interstate commerce when it outlawed such weapons in 1994."

"The 1994 law, an amendment to the Gun Control Act of 1968, defines semiautomatic assault weapons to include a list of specified firearms and "copies or duplicates of the firearms in any caliber.' "

"Navegar Inc. and Penn Arms Inc. challenged the federal ban in 1995."

"Florida-based Navegar, doing business as Intratec, manufactures two semiautomatic pistols, the TEC-DC9 and TEC-22, which are among the specifically banned weapons."

"Pennsylvania-based Penn Arms makes the Strike 12, a 12-gauge revolving cylinder shotgun. All such shotguns are treated as semiautomatic assault weapons under the 1994 law." ...

The manufacturers' position is entirely correct, of course. But the judges apparently prefer serving their employer rather than serving liberty -- a common malady among public servants these days.

"Five months ago today, O’Connor allegedly used the weapon to shoot her daughter, Sara O’Connor, as the 7-year-old child lay sleeping in their Branford condominium. Sara died three days later; O’Connor faces a murder charge."

"Upon learning of the tragedy, a distraught Imperati publicly vowed to quit the gun-selling business."

"He has since locked up his remaining in-store stock — 17 rifles and shotguns — and has refused to ink any related sales receipts." ...

NORWICH -- "Police and Second Amendment experts await a decision by the New London State's Attorney's Office on whether a 61-year-old Norwich man had a legal right to shoot an intruder in his home."

"On Friday night, George Blacker, of 433 Scotland Road, shot one of two burglars who entered his house at 154 Salem Turnpike house."

"The home, police said, was not Blacker's primary residence."

"But, according to police, it was where William Derose, 43, and an unnamed accomplice are suspected of forcing entry shortly after 10 p.m. Police found evidence of a door being pried open."

"Blacker, according to police, was inside waiting with a shotgun."

"He had a permit to legally carry a handgun for eight days, before committing a crime. Now, he's the first Minnesotan to have his handgun permit suspended under the state's new gun law."

"When the new handgun permit law was debated here at the capitol opponents feared it would turn Minnesota into the 'wild west.' That has not happened, but one Minnesota man does have the dubious distinction of being the first to lose his right-to-carry for committing a felony with his handgun."

"These tire skid marks mark the end of his right to carry a handgun in public...at least for now." ...

"According to the criminal complaint, Petersen's brother began ramming his car into a retaining wall and the side of his house. When he wouldn't stop, Damian Petersen "emptied the entire magazine" of a semi-automatic handgun into the car's engine, in an attempt to 'kill the motor.' " ...

NEWSFLASH FOR THE "REPORTER" WHO WROTE THIS STORY:

Anyone legally allowed to possess a handgun in Minnesota can carry it in any way he or she chooses on his or her own property. Concealed, open, whatever. This includes this particular person. The fact that he had a concealed weapons permit is irrelevant to the facts in this case -- because it happened on his own property. He could have shot his violent brother's car whether he had a permit or not. And in common law, if his brother was destroying his home with his car, he had every right in the world to protect his property anyway.

"With the second anniversary of 9/11 just around the corner, rumors and theories about another possible terrorist attack are in abundant supply. According to a recent CNN-USA Today-Gallup poll, 54 percent of Americans think that more attacks are likely during the next few weeks, and 80 percent believe that terrorists are already in the U.S. and are prepared to strike at any time."

"There must be reason for concern--even the federal government has stepped up efforts to make it appear as if it is doing something to provide for the common defense. Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge announced on Monday his intentions to deputize 5,000 more sky marshals, calling it 'another way we're meeting our goal to maximize resources to better protect our citizens.'

KNOXVILLE -- "At the Vol Market No. 3 on Western Avenue, the person preparing your food, cashing your check or ringing you up at the register likely will be wearing a holstered handgun on their hip."

"But unlike most Tennesseans who have a handgun carry permit, Vol Market owners have decided that open display as a visual deterrent is preferable to concealment as final protection." ...

"The state does not track how many business owners with carry permits who openly display firearms. [Give the Brady Camp time and they'll try to make that a law, too.] Authorities say there are probably not many. But the Vol Market folks are not alone."

"Knoxville Police Dept. Lt. Eddie Biggs said some pawn shop owners wear handguns openly." ...

"In addition to its thriving food and deli business, Vol Market has a check-cashing service, which requires a lot of cash be on hand to cash payroll checks for customers."

"Store employees have been carrying guns openly after the 1996 carry permit law went into effect. Since then, it has not been robbed but was burglarized three times. And several persons who tried to cash stolen checks were detained by employees until police arrived." ...
