In the summer of 1994, Toronto police Const. Todd Baylis was murdered with a handgun stolen from an Etobicoke widow who had inherited the World War II relic from her husband. Two years later, 14-year-old Jasmine Vanscoy of St. Catharines met a similar fate at the hands of a 17-year-old boy who shot her in the head with a handgun he had stolen from his stepfather. Last September, three men died in a hail of gunfire outside an Etobicoke housing complex, where one had... (GunPolicy.org)

I read with alarm that the General Assembly may be prepared to amend Delaware law as it pertains to the right to carry a concealed deadly weapon. Essentially the argument is that 34 other states have passed such legislation, and the right of self-protection requires that a person be permitted to carry a concealed weapon.

It began like any other January morning, only more so. A little too cold. A little too windy. The type of morning that made you wish you had moved to Key West and forgotten to tell anyone. Key West. Now there's a place. Do what you want, and no one cares. No one worries about what you're packing. People leave you alone. You don't have some broken-down newspaper man making up a column out of thin air. The gun went off. That's all the explanation anyone needs. The gun... (GunPolicy.org)
