National Review (USA)

It's a true-life modern-day David-and-Goliath story with the victor still undetermined. Struggling against international mining interests and the governments of Papua New Guinea and Australia, the people of the South Pacific island of Bougainville are the underdogs in a decades-long struggle for self-determination. Bougainville has been poisoned and plundered. Its people endured a military blockade which prevented food, medical supplies, fuel, and arms from reaching... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — The Bush administration has adopted a temporary rule barring certain foreign visitors, workers and students from buying guns or ammunition in the United States. While changes were under consideration for several years, the action by the Treasury Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was accelerated by the Sept. 11 terror attacks, government officials said. Under the temporary rule to take effect on Feb. 19, so-called nonimmigrant aliens,... (GunPolicy.org)

Noting a promise to make the city Police Department "more transparent," Mayor Martin O'Malley and Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris are preparing to unveil a Web site providing recent crime statistics at the neighborhood level. O'Malley and Norris said they hope the Web site — which will provide maps that show most serious crimes — will give residents more information about their neighborhoods. "It's about getting people to take ownership of their own part of... (GunPolicy.org)

PALATINE — Village officials are drafting an ordinance to regulate home-based gun dealers by requiring them to have a local business license. The Police, Policy and Code Service Committee Monday recommended that the Village Council ask Village Manager Michael J. Cassady to craft an ordinance. The council is expected to vote on the proposal Monday. "It would be a benefit so police and firefighters and people know if their next-door neighbor is selling guns out of... (GunPolicy.org)

A Cook County jury Tuesday awarded $3.5 million to the son of an Oak Lawn man who was shot and killed in 1996 by Chicago police officers responding to a burglary call.

The visiting New Zealand foreign minister Phil Goff has told President Mogae that he was pleasantly surprised that unlike in other countries where security was always tight, in Botswana there are no guns in the streets. He said Botswana has "a very relaxed and stable political and social climate" that spurred him to visit the country. He said his visit was aimed at cementing the sound relations between Botswana and New Zealand, more so that the two countries share... (GunPolicy.org)

Just as the world turns its attention to the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, a bizarre debate is taking place between state officials and the University of Utah. State officials, with straight faces, are insisting that the university lift a longtime ban on students' carrying guns on campus. This is no joke. Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff has threatened fines and a lawsuit if the university does not back down. Even by Wild West standards, Utah has taken an... (GunPolicy.org)

The California Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday from lawyers for Los Angeles County and a popular Fairplex gun show that was banned by the county in 1999. Officials of Great Western Shows are trying to get their gun show — which drew 40,000 people to Fairplex in its last year — back to Pomona. The event had been held at Fairplex for 22 years. The Board of Supervisors banned the Great Western Show from operating at Fairplex in 1999, partially in reaction to... (GunPolicy.org)

California is taking another step to combat terrorism. Within months, armed California Highway Patrol officers will fly on many commercial flights within the state. The plan is similar to the federal air marshal plan, in that armed officers will be on planes to battle would-be terrorists. But in the state plan, the officers will only work flights that they are already taking as part of their job. The FAA has been pushing to hire more air marshals since September... (GunPolicy.org)

Republican lawmakers on Tuesday strong-armed their Democratic colleagues during a late-running committee hearing, refusing to adjourn before approving a bill that eliminates state fees required to receive a concealed carry permit. If the $35 charge is eliminated, Utah taxpayers would subsidize the estimated $350,000 a year it costs to conduct background checks and administer the permits. The bill also removes the $10 renewal or replacement fee and late payment... (GunPolicy.org)

A Judge in Belfast today called on police to closely investigate and monitor the distribution of firearms which have been deactivated and are sold in gun shops. Mr justice Coghlin said in Belfast High Court that checks should also be made on the type of person acquiring such guns, particularly in Northern Ireland. The judge's comments were made during a bail application by a gun collector who was remanded in custody earlier today at Belfast Magistrates Court. Jason... (GunPolicy.org)
