Arizona: We'll shut down the border with machine guns: "Eyewitness News 4 has learned an armed militia along the border near Douglas may take matters into its own hands this July. Casey Nethercott, the leader of the group said Friday that he doesn't yet want to go into detail on his plans. He supports the Minutemen, but his backup plan is a much more aggressive approach. .... 'When this Minuteman thing is over, if it doesn't work, we're going to come out here and close the border with machine guns,' Nethercott said."

Ohio: Area has many who carry guns: "These days you see the signs declaring several public buildings gun-free, but not outside John Rossington's.A blue-and-white sign is posted at the door with a drawing of a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun and the words "Protected by 2nd Amendment Security."'It's everybody's right," said Rossington, the owner of Ohio Auto Parts on East Mansfield Street. "It says so in the Constitution."Rossingon got a permit because he wanted to take the required training course taught by friend and New Washington police officer Louis Katona III. He said the gun-free zones signs on some public buildings are "absurd.""If someone is carrying (a gun), do you think they'd admit it?" Rossington said.He said he didn't mind people coming into his business with a gun, as long as they have no intent to harm anyone without cause."

Oregon: Bill lets school districts disarm victims "Facing long odds, the Legislature's leading gun-control advocate is setting her sights low in this year's session. But Sen. Ginny Burdick hopes lawmakers will at least take a new step toward keeping all guns out of schools. The Portland Democrat says she hopes to soon push for a vote in the Senate on a bill that would allow local school districts to prohibit holders of concealed-weapons permits from taking firearms into schools. 'I think the public strongly supports this measure,' Burdick said in an interview last week. Oregon is one of 13 states that don't bar all guns from schools."
