LANSING (AP) - An over-
abundance of handguns is being
blamed by officials for a sharp in-
crease in the number of crimes com-
mitted at gun point in Michigan.
Authorities said they're more
concerned with the thousands of
unregistered handguns in the state
than with the more than 2 million
small firearms legally on file.
"For every legal gun we know
about, there are three unregistered
ones," said Liz Welton, a Michigan
State Police gun registration
supervisor. "That's conservative.
You could probably double that -
say, six to one."
Violence involving weapons shot
up 10 percent statewide between
1989 and 1990 to 6,468 crimes,
according to the most recent state
police statistics. In Eaton County, it
rose 46 percent, and Clinton County
reported a 25 percent increase.
More Michiganians are buying
handguns. In 1991, 50,681 handgun
purchases were officially filed with
the state, Welton said. Most were
first-time registrations.
In Lansing alone, more than
1,100 handgun permits are issued
annually, said police Officer Lowell
Nash, who licenses gun owners in
the state's capital.
Not long ago, arrests for carrying
a concealed weapon were relatively
rare in Lansing, Nash said.
Offenders now are routinely charged
with the crime.
"I can remember when one ... in
a month was something to talk
about. Now it seems the night shift
alone might pick up 10 or 15 a
month," he said.
The easy availability of handguns
means more young people are likely

to end a dispute by pulling a trigger
than by throwing a punch, said
Dorothy Cooks, a neighborhood ac-
tivist in southwest Lansing.
"We're fearful of retaliation from
certain people on the streets," she
said. "They don't settle things with
fists any more, they settle things
with guns."
Teen-agers arm themselves for
protection from rival gangs and drug
traffickers and because they think
"it's the cool thing to do," said
Robert Trojanowicz, a Michigan
'For every legal gun
we know about, there
are three
unregistered ones.'

State University criminal justice
professor.
School programs that help police
officers develop friendships with
students are helping discourage
some teens from turning to crime,
Lansing police Lt. Sam Campbell
said.
But experts and activists said
deglamorizing small weapons was
the key to cutting handgun-related
crime.
"It should be up to parents and
the other kids, demanding the
authorities act and making the kid
with a gun a social leper," said Carl
Taylor, a Grand Valley State
University professor.

APPEAL
Continued from page 1
He said that he expects that the
regents will appeal the decision.
"I would assume that they are
going to appeal," he said.
Harrison added that this decision
will not affect only future per-
sonnel searches at the University.
"It's going to affect all state
universities. Candidates for posi-

tions at any of them will be sub-
jected to the public," he said.
Harrison said that if the
University appeals the case, it could
take years to get through the legal
system.
He added that if the regents de-
cide not to appeal or lose the appeal,
the money to pay the $66,000 fine
will either come from the
University's reserves or be covered
by the University's insurance pol-
icy.

consider candidate personality or in-
cumbency advantage, Laracey said.
He also suggested that Zimmer's
analysis of only fifteen elections
over ten years (ten council elections
and five mayoral) was too limited
to ensure accuracy.
"The assumptions are that neigh-
borhoods have voting patterns,"

Zimmer said. "Probability is not a
crystal ball. I'm not going to pre-
dict the future. My claim was never
that these wards would make it im-
possible for a minority candidate to
win." Zimmer himself is a minority
candidate - a Democrat in a
Republican ward.
Zimmer is the first Democrat to
be elected in the 4th ward in 18
years. According to his own figures,
he has a very small chance of being
reelected.

MIDEAST

all the investments ... for solving
this very complicated problem, in-
cluding these loan guarantees."
Shamir did not make clear how
he expected to resolve the dispute,
but Israel television reported he saw
Baker's reported proposal as
agreement in principle to provide
loan guarantees.
Shamir told 300 Jewish
journalists, "The U.S. has reaffirmed
its readiness to assist us in the
unprecedented task of absorbing the
large immigration."
"The United States understands
that for us the building and
development of all parts of Eretz
Israel is a matter of principle,"
Shamir said.
"Eretz Israel" or the "land of
Israel" is the term right-wing Israelis
use to define both pre-1967 Israel
and the territories it captured from
Syria and Jordan that year in the Six
Day War.
He was confident both sides
would be able to "find a formula
that will not contradict U.S. policy
or this principle of ours."
"As long as such an effort exists,
we believe it will succeed," he said.

According to sources in
Washington, who spoke on
condition of anonymity, Baker
suggested that U.S. objections to the
Jewish settlements might be met if
Israel stopped building new homes.
The offer apparently would allow
Israel to complete the sizable
housing units it already has begun.
Before the settlements got tied up
with the loan guarantee issue, the
United States repeatedly asked
Israel to stop building new Jewish
settlements as a gesture toward the
U.S.-sponsored peace talks.
In Tunisia, meanwhile, Yasser
Abd-Rabbo, head of the Palestine
Liberation Organization's
information department and a close
aide of PLO Chairman Yasser
Arafat, said it was "inopportune" for
Palestinians to take part in the
Moscow talks.
A committee of Palestinian
delegates has already recommended
a boycott of the talks because of a
lack of progress in earlier bilateral
negotiations in Washington and the
exclusion of the PLO from this
week's talks.
Israel refuses to negotiate directly
with the PLO, which it considers a
terrorist organization, while most
Palestinians consider the group their
representative.

embarrassed for them."
Pro-choice supporters substan-
tially out-number the Operation
Rescue picketers, and AACDARR
members say they face a dwindling
number of opposition at every clinic
defense. Some AACDARR mem-
bers contribute the decrease to their
militant tactics.
"Our numbers show where the
majority of the population lies on
the abortion issue," says pro-choice
supporter Steve Craine. ,

Police announce that the clinic is
to remain open, despite earlier re-
ports. Surrounded by people, women
begin entering the clinic. In a less
than confidential whisper, Opera-
tion Rescue demonstrators remind,
"You know you can get off that
table anytime you feel like it," and
"I sense murder in the air."
"Personally, if I had to walk in
here with all these people shouting
values at me, I would be scared to
death," comments Becca Meyer, an
RC sophomore helping to defend
the clinic against Operation Rescue.
In the single-digit temperatures,
the opposing factions hold their
ground. Some less hearty demon-
strators seek refuge in the Hi-liter
Restaurant, a coffee shop next door
reminiscent of the 1950s. Over
warming cups of coffee, two women
from Operation Rescue discuss their
reasons for blockading the clinic.
"The weather wouldn't stop me.
Once you start, you know you're do-
ing the right thing," says Stawinski,
looking down at a miniature plastic
fetus sitting on the table. "I am a
Christian. We are supposed to speak
up for all those who have no voice."
By noon, all activity has settled
down. Despite that several women
make it into the clinic, both sides
head home, believing they did the
right thing.
