To Ohio, where a man summoned the constabulary on a complaint that "his live-in-girlfriend hit him with a ham sandwich inside their home in the 2600 block of Royalton Road around 7:10 p.m." Unfortunately, "the man was unable to provide deputies with a full description of the sandwich, such as whether it was toasted or untoasted." Also: "Deputies located a slice of bread on the floor, but suspect the family dog ate the ham, according to the report."
Jimmy Cagney's version of a "Ham Sandwich."
On a more serious note: The Baltimore Sun wondered about the conspicuous silence by Obama about Firearms.
"While President Barack Obama is urging Americans to focus on "winning the future" with talk of job-creating innovation in the spirit of John F. Kennedy's "Sputnik moment," he has been conspicuously silent on a pressing issue of the present.
Though in his State of the Union address he lamented last month's shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others in Tucson, and lauded the heroic acts of those who prevented worse damage, he had nothing to say about the assault weapon used by the shooter.
To describe the semiautomatic handgun loaded with a multi-bullet cartridge as an assault weapon would no doubt trigger the ire of extreme pro-gun advocates. But simple common sense justifies the label. The deadly scene in Tucson was not some skeet-shooting range; living beings were on the receiving end of the rapid-fire barrage.
White House officials say the president will be saying something about gun control later on. One translation: He didn't want to resurrect the old argument over guns and the Second Amendment while he was making his inspirational pitch to, as Kennedy used to say, "get this country moving again."

Palm Beach County, Florida, gives up try on County ban on high capacity magazines
Palm Beach County, Florida has given up a plan to locally ban high capacity magazines. The ordinance was designed to ban magazines like the ones used by the madman in Tucson. The NRA lawyers and county attorneys concluded that such a local ban violated the preemption provision of Florida state law regarding firearms. Municipalities there cannot make laws regarding firearms that contradict state law.
