[Voice of America Intl. Edition] November 7th: Jack Talks Guns and the Law

I appear on Voice of America International Edition on November 7th. So a lot more information has come to light about the alleged shooter in the latest massacre, this one in Texas.  This man should not have had a weapon.  With issues of mental illness and domestic assault, certain people shouldn't have access but he was never on the data base excluding him.  A  big question like this needs to be address.

One question that keeps coming to mind is why.  Are Americans just more dangerous? Mentally ill? Crazy? What? In the end, the only real difference seems to be guns and a willingness to exclude those who shouldn't have them.  The U.S.s has 4% of the population and 46% of the guns. That means 10 times more than that which is found in the rest of the world.  How does that impact this issue.

This promises to be a very interesting conversation. 


A Man Is Acquited For Defending His Property - He Claims He Was Defending Himself. How Far Should it Go?

kogo3 Bob Orlosky, a heavy-equipment contractor, was tired of people trying to steal from him. On December 1, 2006, he suspected that three men were on his property in San Diego county to steal copper wire and he simply had enough. According to reports, and testimony, as the three drove away from the property, Orlosky parked on the side of the road and stepped into the middle of the roadway. The three men apparently continued driving down the roadway toward Orlosky. Orlosky claims he heard a gun shot and assumed the men were firing at him. He stayed in the middle of the road. He then says that the jeep brushed against him and made him lose his balance. Claiming self-defense, he then began to shoot. According to one of the survivors, Orlosky fired approximately 10 rounds into the jeep as it passed and drove away, killing one and injuring another. He was acquitted of all charges today after two separate trials. But should he have been? Jack talks about it on Kogo Radio and and takes your calls at 1-800-600-5646.
