It's a shame that Fred Thompson is too young to have played Matt Dillon, the no-nonsense marshal of Dodge City in the long-running radio and television series "Gunsmoke." That role on the radio went to William Conrad (later TV's "Cannon") and on television to James Arness. But whether on TV or radio, Marshal Dillon had the same policy for cowboys when they rode into Dodge: They had to surrender their guns. The Marshal Dillon Rule is based on common sense, not to...

On Monday, Interior Minister Dragan Jocic spoke in favour of stricter regulations for the carrying of weapons. "A law on issuing permits for weapons exists, it came into force a couple of years ago.
