Twelve years later Durham Police make an arrest

There is no statute of limitations on murder. If they can pin it on you, they will get you even a dozen years later.
It was a horrible crime. They found her burned body in her estranged husband’s garage.
It’s hard to say, but this might have been a clue
Leopards don’t change their spots.

They are coming in groups now. It’s bad enough that they have any, but now they can’t even get their own news stories.

When shootings happen so often in Sydney, despite their draconian gun control laws, that they have to combine shootings for newspaper stories, you know gun control is an utter failure.

He had cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy, and guns

Is this another case of a gun owner being law abiding right up until the time he’s caught?
It sure sounds like a poster child for the crazed gunman that all the gun grabbers fear.
Of course, he’d broken the law so many times before that there is a question as to why he was not already in jail.
It’s probably because guns are easily available at unregulated gun shows or something.

Shotguns are permissible in (Formerly Great) Britain, but not sawed off ones.
So tell me again about how well gun control works in stopping crime?

Adam Winkler knows a fact – misses the point

Adam Winkler is on a quest to “prove” that gun control is as old as the US.
Apparently Mr. Winkler is unaware of why loaded guns were banned in Boston buildings in the Revolutionary War era. It’s because they were flintlock muzzle loading muskets. That means that they didn’t have what we think of as safeties. They were inherently unsafe because any spark near the breech end could set them off.
Here’s another thing that Winkler apparently doesn’t know. The approved method for unloading a Rev War era musket is to shoot it. When Paul Revere got captured during his ride, a fortuitously timed volley of musket fire convinced the British at a roadblock that the Colonists were shooting at the column already.
The whole point is, the rule against loaded guns inside the building had nothing to do with a desire to prevent people from having access to deadly force and everything to do with preventing accidents that were documented and likely to reoccur. Winkler seems to think that because they banned loaded guns inside Boston buildings then, it’s perfectly acceptable to do so now. He ignores the fact that in the intervening 200+ years we have developed cartridge loads that are immune to the problem that the loaded gun ban was intended to solve.
It’s a basic fact of jurisprudence that laws are intended to solve problems, not merely to reinforce prejudices. The problem that was solved by this law doesn’t occur anymore, so there is no need for it now. Limits on fundamental enumerated rights can only be narrowly tailored to address a compelling government interest. Demanding that my gun be unloaded inside now to solve a 200 year old problem cannot be said to be “narrowly tailored.”

Tea Partier shoves reporter, screams racial epithets on live TV!

An insurrectionist Tea Partier and racist was unable to contain his rage during a live shot in Myrtle Beach last night. The reporter was attempting to talk about escalating crime rates on the Grand Strand when the racist Tea Partier pushed her, snatched her microphone out of her hand, and started shouting racial epithets.





Oh, did I say “Tea Partier?” I meant random African-American idiot.

A real winner here

So what possesses a woman to try to bail a man who assaulted her out of jail? One who assaulted her so badly that she needed to stab him to get away?


He’s 21, she’s 45.


Hmm.


No name was given for the victim, but would anyone be surprised to see that she also had a record? I think that the Magistrate made a good choice here.

Meanwhile in Rebecca Peters Paradise: Bullets and Bombshells edition

Apparently “Maisons du Chat” are legal in eastern Australia. Still, shooting them up is frowned upon.

So they’ve realized that outlawing prostitution didn’t work. Do you think that they will ever figure out that outlawing guns doesn’t work either?

Now I know why Australia and Canada don’t have Concealed Carry

UPDATE: Read the update at the bottom.
Take a gander at this chart showing the number of rapes per 100,000 population.
(Click to enlargify)
 
Now can you tell why Australian and Canadian politicians don’t want to let women carry guns? They might get shot.
 
They are so much more civilized, don’t you know.

UPDATE 12-15-12:
In the many months since this was originally posted, the underlying source data has changed. If you click the link you will see this graphic.
OECD rape
Canada has inexplicably dropped from #2 to somewhere near the bottom. I suspect that someone messed up the data in the original report and quietly fixed it.

Meanwhile in Sarah Brady Paradise: Snooker, Dancing, and Murder edition

They got their gun, and they carried it with the intention of using it against others if necessary. They sound like regular American concealed carriers, right? Not so fast.
So dude was leaving a snooker hall, which incidentally doubles as a dance venue, and was shot dead after a gang with a gun attacked them.
This wasn’t the only time, either.
And these fools would have us believe that it’s a good thing that the innocent victims were disarmed by law, and unable to defend themselves against murder and attempted murder.
Who is it that they are trying to protect? Society? Or are they really trying to protect the criminals who might get shot if they attack the wrong person?
