    In this age of waxing laws and waning freedoms, a notable exception to the pattern of ever-tightening restrictions is gun prohibitions. New Hampshire no longer requires a license for the carrying of a concealed, loaded firearm; Florida is considering eliminating all “gun-free zones” (e.g., at schools); and Iowa may institute a “Stand your ground” provision and lower the age at which children could use handguns, to cite a few examples. [...]All this stokes another fear: that the U.S. will become a gun free-for-all zone of murder and mayhem. But does data justify this concern?

    Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, has applauded the introduction of legislation that would allow for living wills in Italy. The legislation, introduced in the Italian parliament on March 13, would allow individuals to register their own preferences regarding treatment in case of terminal illness. The proposal would allow for DNR (do-not-resuscitate) orders and establish guidelines for limiting treatment and the artificial provision of nutrition and hydration. Saying that the bill had “nothing to do with euthanasia or assisted suicide,” but merely provided against “excessive” treatment, Archbishop Paglia said that he hopes for “the broadest...

    The state of Arkansas plans to put to death eight inmates over a span of 10 days next month, a pace of executions unequaled in recent American history and brought about by a looming expiration date for a drug used by the state for lethal injections. The eight men facing execution — four black and four white — are among 34 death row inmates in Arkansas, where capital punishment has been suspended since 2005 over legal challenges and difficulty in acquiring the drugs for lethal injections. All eight men were convicted of murders that occurred between 1989 and 1999, and...

    A mannequin, covered with blankets and positioned to resemble a homeless person sleeping on the sidewalk, was attacked with a hammer near downtown Las Vegas. The suspect told Las Vegas police he knew it wasn’t a human. But homicide detectives who staged the mannequin scene say they believe 30-year-old Shane Schindler was out to kill. Two homeless men were bludgeoned to death within a month’s time earlier this year, and Schindler’s arrest report indicates that he attacked the police decoy in a similar fashion. Schindler appeared in court this week, facing one count of carrying a concealed weapon.

    POLITICISING HATE CRIME Wrong to blame Trump for racial killing It is tragic that an Indian engineer was shot dead in the US in what appears to be a racial hate crime. The killer (a Navy veteran) shouted, "Get out of my country", before he shot the victim and injured another Indian. American laws are strong enough to deal with such incidents and one must hope that the murderer will be punished sooner than later. It would be wrong, however, to generalise that hate crimes against Indians, or non-whites, are becoming part of the American DNA. Let us not forget...

Second, the deal was for 20% of the United States' uranium production capacity. That's a totally different thing. Finally, the uranium wasn't given to Russia.

    The leaders of New Jersey cities who have promised to protect undocumented residents from federal immigration law enforcement officials grappled Wednesday with President Donald Trump’s executive order targeting so-called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s executive order, signed Wednesday, would take away federal funds “except as mandated by law” from municipalities that refuse to hand over non-criminal undocumented immigrants for deportation. “Newark will continue to protect undocumented immigrants despite whatever executive order is issued,” Mayor Ras Baraka said in a statement to NJ Advance Media. […] Baraka vowed after Trump’s election last year to protect the city’s immigrant population, and only arrest undocumented...

    SAGINAW (WWJ/AP) – A man whose drug-related prison sentence was commuted in November by President Barack Obama has been fatally shot at a federal halfway house in Michigan after two men with assault-style rifles sought him out, police said. Two men wearing masks went into Bannum Place in Saginaw on Monday night with plans to kill 31-year-old Damarlon Thomas, a former Saginaw gang member. Lt. David Kaiser said Thomas was shot several times by one of the men as some of the roughly two dozen people at the home were held at gunpoint.

    "I stabbed an innocent woman to death earlier today . . . It was absolutely fantastic. Murder gives me a high unlike any other. It feels like this crisp unreality, flashing and sparkling, adrenaline and shock." While these lines might sound like the demented writings of John Wayne Gacy or perhaps Charles Manson, they actually appeared in what police said was a diary kept by a teenage girl named Pearl Moen. She was mistaken about one thing, though - the women she stabbed did not die. Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/national/article128380779.html#storylink=cpy

    The Alabama Supreme Court has ruled that a wrongful death lawsuit brought by a woman who claims her doctor caused her to have a miscarriage by administering an abortion-inducing drug can proceed. Kimberly Stinnett’s usual doctor was reportedly out the day of her appointment. Karla Kennedy, the doctor who was filling in that day, believed that Stinnett had an ectopic pregnancy since she had had one previously. Thus, Kennedy decided to administer methotrexate, a drug that, as the court noted, is “intended to cause the end of the pregnancy.” However, when Stinnett’s usual doctor, William Huggins, examined her pregnancy via...

Tolleson said four additional detective slots have just been added to the APD homicide unit. Last year, Atlanta...

    Border Patrol Agent Joel Luna got to trade in his jail-issued orange uniform for a suit and tie Tuesday, but the judge turned down his bid to have potentially damaging testimony thrown out on the first day of his capital murder trial. Luna and his brother Eduardo are accused of murder and drug cartel ties in the grisly beheading death of Franky Palacios, whose headless body was found floating off the waters of South Padre Island during the height of spring break in 2015. Joel Luna briefly took the stand as his lawyer attempted to suppress a statement he gave...
