    A knife-weilding Arab on Monday approached a border police station near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron and advanced on the officers there. The officers confronted the terrorist at gunpoint and began "standard procedures" to safely arrest the man, who was appaerently so alarmed by the forcefulness of the response that he surrendered without incident. Officers disarmed the man, arrested him, and handed him over the Palestinian Authority security forces for questioning. During his initial interrogation by Israeli authorities the terrorist admitted that it was his aim to "stab soldiers."

    LAS VEGAS -- A woman stabbed a man in self defense in downtown Las Vegas Monday following an argument, Metro police said. According to police, the incident began when a man carrying a knife attacked the woman's friend at Wyoming Avenue and Main Street. She somehow took the knife from the man and stabbed him, causing minor injuries, police said. Authorities were not sure of the relationship between the three people involved, other than saying the two women are friends. The man was cited by officers, but no other charges were filed against those involved.

Now Copeland has filed a lawsuit to block these kinds of arrests, and...

    CONCORD – Gun owners turned out in force Wednesday to support the concept of a bill that would end mandatory licenses to carry a concealed pistol or revolver, loaded or unloaded, but not necessarily the bill's content. The bills would allow most people to carry a concealed weapon without a license. Exemptions would be for convicted felons or those with a history of mental illness or violent behavior. Supporters said House Bill 330 (click to view status and text)re-enforces second amendment rights and decriminalizes the actions of law-abiding citizens without empowering criminals.

    Maine lawmakers on Wednesday approved legalizing switchblades for people with one arm, moving close to becoming the first state to make such an exception to laws that ban use of the spring-action knives. Backers of the measure say legalizing switchblades would eliminate a need for one-armed people to be forced to open folding knives with their teeth in emergencies. The bill to allow amputees and other one-armed people to carry the quick-opening knives cleared Maine's Senate on Wednesday after passing the House on Tuesday, Senate officials said. Until now, Maine banned the use of switchblades by anyone. In most states,...

    In Texas, it's a misdemeanor offense to carry an illegal knife, which includes daggers, Bowie knives, swords, spears, throwing stars and any knife with a blade over 5 1/2 inches. Switchblade knives are illegal not only to carry, but to possess, sell or make. But that could change if knife rights lobbyists - who've had major victories making knife laws less strict in New Hampshire and Arizona this year - roll back some the state's provisions they claim are out-dated and arbitrary. Texas would be a "natural step" for lobbyists looking to change knife laws, according to the group, Knife...

A 19-year-old woman allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the man twice, who then fled the scene. Police tell Channel 5 the woman is not facing any charges, because it appears the stabbing was self-defense.

But that changed earlier this year when Arizona made its Legislature the sole arbiter of knife regulations. And because of loose restrictions on weapons here, Arizona is now considered a knife carrier’s dream, a place where everything from a samurai sword to a switchblade can be...

    A Clark County judge says Wisconsin’s ban on carrying concealed weapons is unconstitutional. In the case, authorities charged a Sauk City man with carrying a concealed weapon, after he admitted he had a knife in his waistband. He never threatened anyone. In light of the landmark Supreme Court ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago, attorney William Poss filed a motion to dismiss the case on constitutional grounds. Judge Jon Counsell obliged Wednesday, ruling the law is overly broad and violates both the Second and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution.

    Attorney Jim Manley and the Mountain States Legal Foundation are taking on the US Postal Service's ban on any firearm on USPS property. The challenge is on behalf of Debbie and Tab Bonidy of Avon, Colorado and the National Association for Gun Rights. A lawsuit, Bonidy et al v. USPS et al, was filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. The Bonidys live in a rural area of Colorado that doesn't have home mail delivery. Because of that, the local post office in Avon, Colorado provides the residents of the area with a post office box...

    A Centralia man being held in connection with a weekend stabbing in Wamac has been released from custody without being charged pending further investigation. Marion County State's Attorney Matt Wilzbach says witness statements indicate the man was acting in self defense, but he wants police to talk to the stabbing victim before a final decision is made on charges. Wilzbach has been told 36-year-old Christopher Walker of Patoka remains in the intensive care unit of St. Mary's Hospital in Centralia on a respirator, but his condition is stable. However, Walker's condition is not good enough to allow him to talk...

    LOS ANGELES – Police Chief Charlie Beck pleaded for calm and vowed his department would conduct an exhaustive investigation into a bicycle officer's fatal shooting of a drunken day laborer with a knife. But his words did little to dissuade demonstrators, who spilled into the streets for a second straight night Tuesday — some to pray and light candles and others to pelt a police station near downtown Los Angeles with eggs, rocks and bottles. ... Beck said the incident involving Jamines started when someone flagged down three bicycle officers to tell them a man was threatening people with a...

    Reader feedback sections in both the on-line Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer editions are loading up with comments (more than 220 in the Times at last count) as the public reacts to Monday afternoon’s fatal shooting by a Seattle police officer of a man apparently carrying a knife. Was the man merely whittling, as has been reported, or did the officer perceive a genuine threat when he confronted the as-yet unidentified man? That’s a question that must be sorted out, and not in the emotion-laden atmosphere surrounding this story right now, but after the situation is analyzed. Perhaps not since...
