Morning Meltdown February 20, 2012

Conservatives and enthusiasts cheer the end of the long-gun registry
The Conservative government says its MPs will celebrate after a historic vote to end the long-gun registry Wednesday evening, despite vehement opposition to the move in Quebec and much of urban Canada.
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews told reporters Wednesday, hours before the vote, that the government's actions are long overdue. "It does nothing to help put an end to gun crimes, nor has it saved one Canadian life," he said. "It criminalizes hard-working and law-abiding citizens such as farmers and sport shooters, and it has been a billion-dollar boondoggle left to us by the previous Liberal government."

1 dead, 1 wounded after ICE agent opens fire at federal building in California

A federal immigration agent who shot and injured a colleague in their office Thursday was killed when a third agent drew his weapon and fired, the FBI said. Several shots were fired about 5:30 p.m. in the Immigration Customs Enforcement office, leaving one man wounded, said Steven Martinez, assistant director in charge of the FBI's Los Angeles office.
"Another agent, working nearby, intervened and fired his weapon to prevent additional rounds being fired at the victim," he said. The gunman died at the scene and the wounded man was taken to a hospital, where he was in stable condition.

OUTRAGE: Feds Settle with Illegal Aliens in CT -- Give Them $350k and Amnesty
Eleven illegal aliens who claimed ICE agents "violated their rights" in 2007 raids on their New Haven neighborhood have won a $350,000 settlement from the U.S. government, which also agreed to halt deportation proceedings against the plaintiffs, their attorneys said Tuesday.
New Haven is American's most notorious "sanctuary city"- the first in the nation to offer identification cards to illegal immigrants, and critics including the mayor have contended the federal sweep was retaliation for the ID program — a charge denied by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, saying planning for the raid began the year before.

Gas Prices Soar
Soaring gas prices are giving drivers a new round of pain at the pump. Fuel prices have risen 25 of the past 26 days in Los Angeles and Orange counties, according to AAA. At an average of $4.06 a gallon, prices are at their highest point since last summer. CBS2's Kara Finnstrom reports that a gallon of self-serve regular unleaded gasoline is $4.93 a gallon at a Shell station in the Miracle Mile district.

CBO: Longest Period of High Unemployment Since Great Depression
After three years with unemployment topping 8 percent, the U.S. has seen the longest period of high unemployment since the Great Depression, the Congressional Budget Office noted in a report issued today.
And, despite some recent good news on the economic front, the CBO is still predicting that unemployment will remain above 8 percent until 2014. The report also notes that, including those who haven't sought work in the past four weeks and those who are working part-time but seeking full-time employment, the unemployment rate would be 15 percent.

So...You Want More Media Coverage of Military Deaths?
After yesterday's article, "Of Soldiers and Celebrities" and watching continued complaining in social media outlets regarding the over coverage of Whitney Houston vs the lack of coverage regarding our fallen military heroes, I went to Facebook and posed a question.
