NJN/am for Tuesday, May 7

Hello, Tuesday…

Weather: Here comes the sun. At last, we will see some sunshine later today, but not before we deal with a stray shower or two this morning, as well as areas of dense fog before 9 a.m. Highs will reach the upper 60s, with lows tonight in the lower 50s and more patchy fog after midnight. Wednesday will be very nice, with highs in the upper 70s.

“I’m here. I’m free now.” Those words came from Amanda Berry as she talked to a 911 dispatcher in Cleveland, after she escaped from a house where she and two other women had been kidnapped and held for a decade. Berry was abducted at age 16 in April 2003 on her way home from working at a fast-food restaurant; another girl was taken at age 14 as she came home from school, and another woman was kidnapped at age 21. Berry somehow freed herself and tried to get out the front door of the house that was her prison. Neighbors heard her and helped her get out and call 911. Police have three suspects in custody.

GOP senator slams Obama over ammo hoarding. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., told a New York radio host that he believes the Obama administration is buying massive amounts of ammunition in an effort to keep it out of the hands of citizens — a back-door method of gun control. “… [Our] president, Obama, has been doing everything he could to stop the private ownership of guns in America,” Inhofe told host Aaron Klein on WABC. “Honest, law-abiding citizens here in the United States, like my son, can’t even buy ammunition because government is purchasing so much.” Inhofe has introduced legislation that would limit the amount of ammo that government agencies, aside from the Defense Department, could buy.
