California: Officials to decide fate of gun club: "Will the gun club get shot down? Or will the 58-year-old business, a favorite of local cops honing their shooting skills, continue to operate at the base of the Angeles National Forest? The [Azusa, CA] City Council will likely decide tonight during what promises to be a heated public hearing. The council has received complaints from neighbors about the San Gabriel Valley Gun Club at 4001 Fish Canyon Road, particularly those from the tony Mountain Cove development, saying the sound of gunshots is driving them crazy. Some claim lead shot into the mountains winds up in the San Gabriel River. ... Because the gun club was already established at the time Azusa annexed the property, the city's noise ordinance doesn't apply, according to state law, city officials said."

More British hysteria: "Stunned cops found two guns in a car they stopped and searched during a series of routine roadside checks.The guns - both duelling pistols - were discovered wrapped up inside the vehicle.Officers seized the firearms, which are now being checked by police ballistic experts who are concerned they could be used as lethal weapons.Later one source said: "These may be old guns, possibly antiques, but they could be converted and easily turned into live firearms."We don't want guns of any kind falling into the hands of criminals. If that happened someone could be seriously injured or even killed."Last night officers were quizzing the driver of the
car and inquiries were continuing. The motorist may now face charges."
