    While many questions remain about what motivated the killer in Friday's mass shooting in Connecticut, one thing is becoming increasingly clear -- the tragedy will re-ignite and further fuel a major debate over gun control legislation in Washington. President Obama, without endorsing any specific proposal, hinted at Sunday night's vigil that he would enter that debate with vigor. "We can't tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end, and to end them, we must change," Obama said. He said "no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world ... but that can't be an excuse for inaction." The calls for...

    PROVIDENCE — Dominic Johnson, a 10-year-old fourth-grader with a fledgling Mohawk, brandished his black, long-nosed toy gun and caressed the muzzle appreciatively. “It’s like a shotgun mixed with a rifle,’’ he said, as his mother, April, told him to stop pointing it at nearby children. Soon it would be junk. Dominic joined dozens of children yesterday at the annual Toy Gun Bash in the gymnasium of Pleasant View Elementary School. There, they lined up to toss their toy guns, from dainty purple water guns to camouflage-painted pistols, inside the Bash-O-Matic, a large black, foam creature with churning metal teeth and...

    A Hezbollah minister said on Sunday that disarming his Shiite militant group was not "a subject for discussion," two days before Lebanon's national dialogue on defence strategy is due to resume. "Some have implied that the dialogue session seeks to establish when Hezbollah will be disarmed," Administrative Reform Minister Mohammad Fneich was quoted as saying by the state news agency ANI. "This issue is not a subject for discussion and will not be debated at the dialogue session," Fneich said. Politicians from rival parties are due to meet Tuesday for a new session on defence strategy to be chaired by...

    “Well I, I, I, I continue to, I continue to, uh, uh, support a ban on concealed carry laws.”I did not know that.Really, I didn’t know that Barack Obama wants to outlaw CCWs (concealed weapons permits). I thought that I’d followed this campaign closer than most, but this one got right by me. For the record, I myself hold a State of Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License, having subjected myself to a background check, paid the fee (and renewal fees) and demonstrated proficiency and responsibility with personal firearms. Hell, there was a time some years ago when I was...

    Two Georgia men survived a gruesome suicide attempt Friday after cutting their own arms off with a saw, reported Atlanta's Journal Constitution. The 40 and 41-year-old men managed to remove three of their four arms, cutting them about six inches about their wrists, Atlanta Police Major Lane Hagin told the Journal. The men left a suicide note with the manager of their apartment building saying they were killing themselves because they were recently diagnosed with HIV and their business had failed, according to police. The men are in stable condition at a local hospital and will undergo psychiatric tests, a...

    UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged the Lebanese authorities on Thursday to take a lesson from the recent war between Israel and Hezbollah and quickly agree on a plan for disarming Hezbollah. Hezbollah's transformation into a purely political party "is a key element in ensuring a permanent end of hostilities and in the full restoration of Lebanon's sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence," Annan said in a report to the U.N. Security Council. "It is my deep hope that the opportunities borne from conflict will be seized upon and that Lebanon may once again rise from the...

    One of the region's top cops has called for a ban on pointed blades so that they cannot be used as lethal weapons. The Chief Constable of Northumbria police Mike Craik said he would like to see implements like kitchen knives only being sold with rounded ends to make them safer. He explained: "You rarely get victims who are sliced to death . . . they are usually stabbed. "So, the problem is pointed knives. If you ask chefs how many times they need to use pointed knives they'll tell you they don't need them at all." Mr Craik spoke...

    Bush Calls for NATO Support on Disarming Iraq By Randall Mikkelsen PRAGUE (Reuters) - President Bush said on Wednesday he would call on NATO allies to help him disarm Saddam Hussein should the Iraqi leader refuse to give up the deadly arsenal Washington believes he has concealed. Speaking at a joint news conference with Czech President Vaclav Havel, Bush said NATO members would consider the consequences for Iraq of any failure to comply with a new U.N. disarmament resolution at a summit in Prague on Thursday. "If the decision is made to use military force we will consult with our...

    TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - In a rally outside the store to which the rifle used in the Washington, D.C.-area sniper killings was traced, protesters made their case for tougher gun controls. Inside Bull's Eye Shooter Supply, owner Brian Borgelt offered a $2,000 reward Thursday for information on how the .223-caliber Bushmaster XM15 semiautomatic rifle got out of his control. Several state legislators joined members of Washington CeaseFire in the wind and rain to push for extending a registration requirement to gun show sales and for requiring ballistics fingerprinting to make it easier to identify firearms used in crimes. ``We can...

    Cincinnati - Calling Saddam Hussein a unique and growing threat to world peace, President George W. Bush last night asked the nation to gird itself for a potentially difficult military conflict to strip the Iraqi leader of his most powerful weapons - and his power to rule. Bush warned that a cornered Hussein might be tempted to use chemical or biological weapons in such a war, and he urged Iraqi generals to spurn such orders or risk trial as war criminals. Speaking to an invited audience of civic leaders in a renovated railroad terminal that once thronged with troops heading...
