An airline pilot is being disciplined by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for posting video on YouTube pointing out what he believes are serious flaws in airport security.
The 50-year-old pilot ... has worked for the airline for more than a decade and was deputized by the TSA to carry a gun in the cockpit. ...
Three days after he posted a series of six video clips ... four federal air marshals and two sheriff's deputies arrived at his house to confiscate his federally-issued firearm. ...
At the same time ... a deputy sheriff asked him to surrender his state-issued permit to carry a concealed weapon.
... the sheriff's department said the CCW permit would be reevaluated following the outcome of the federal investigation.

As a gun’s rights advocate and referral attorney for the NRA, Mr. Flasterstein believes that gun rights are always going to be an issue in this country at both the local and federal level. As an expert and advocate for the Second Amendment, he believes that the fight for the Constitution and the Second Amendment all comes down to civil rights and the ability for someone to arm themselves if they want to.

“Every law abiding citizen if they choose to exercise their right, have the right to arm and keep arms and protect themselves if they want to, but it’s not going to stop…The Second Amendment, the fight for upholding our Constitution, the fight for gun rights is civil rights.”

Amherst Police are questioning a man who opened fire at an alleged bank robber Friday morning. Police say a man walked into the Citizens Bank on Sheridan near Bailey around 9:15 am. The suspect had a handgun and displayed it, ordering all inside to put their hands up. He then proceeded to the teller area of the bank where he demanded cash from the tellers. He then began to exit the bank with an unknown amount of cash. Police say that's when a customer followed the suspect out of the building. As the robbery suspect ran off, the customer fired several shots. Police do not believe the suspect was hit by gunfire. Police say the customer who fired the shots had a permit for his pistol.

No criminal charges will be filed against the man who fatally stabbed 67-year-old Donnie Finley in his North Taft Hill Road driveway this fall.

Based on evidence, "it appears that Michael Rae's actions were a direct result of his fear of being shot and his mother being shot again by Donnie Finley," according to a news release from Larimer County District Attorney's Office.

Rae, 19, stabbed Finley multiple times in the head and neck Sept. 12 with a small pocket knife after Finley had shot Rae's mother, Carrie Rae, in the hand. The use of deadly force was warranted based on Colorado statute regarding self-defense, according to the news release.

The number of Lincolnshire teenagers being granted shotgun licences is on the up.

An investigation by the Echo shows the number of under-18s taking up shooting as a hobby has risen from just 12 in the 2008-9 financial year to 22 during 2009-10.

Although, in total, the number of licences issued fell to 380 during the 2009-10 financial year from 403 the previous year.

Helen Wilkie, firearms licensing manager for Lincolnshire Police, said full checks are made on anyone applying for a licence and their reason for wanting a shotgun.

She said: "Where the applicant is under 18 years of age, they are made fully aware of the law in relation to them not being permitted to purchase their own shotgun.

Meanwhile, a police report shows that the victim in Monday's fatal shooting, Andrew Jared Wright, 23, was armed and may have initiated the confrontation — a claim his family vehemently denied.

Police arrested Robert Williams, 22, on Monday on charges of first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after investigators said he fatally shot Wright in the head.

...

Police said they later found a handgun beside Wright, and a second under his body. He was wearing body armor, police said.

...

A shootout followed, police said, resulting in Wright's death. Williams was arrested because police said he re-engaged Wright while he was leaving.
 

China: Restrictive Gun Controls Lead To Major Crackdown On Online Sales

Chinese Police announced yesterday that a network of online gun sales had been busted.

The Chinese Government has enacted some of the most restrictive gun ownership laws in the world. Current private citizens are unable to buy, own or make guns.

In a major campaign police followed over 2000 leads to track down gun producers and online sellers.

Given the illegal status of gun ownership it is impossible to establish the exact extent of gun ownership in China, however in just three months police in 2007 confiscated 178,000 guns, 4.75 million bullets and an enormous 3,900 tons of illegal explosives.

Ed.: I don't buy the fact that 93% of Americans own a gun.

Airsoft weapons may supplant paintball equipment this year as the Christmas gift of choice among gun lovers, store owners say, as generational and economic changes shift consumers toward airsoft, which uses realistic-looking guns that shoot small plastic BBs long distances.

Sales figures at Airsoft Tactical on Ringgold Road have exploded over the last two years, and participation at tactical airsoft events has doubled, store owner Mike Johnson said. Because distributors can’t keep up with demand, he’s had to set up a system to share inventory with a friend who owns an airsoft store in Nashville.
 

Cases to Hold Stuff, Part 1: I'm attracted to gun cases and I don't even like guns

To keep your desk or room clean, the book Lighten Up! Free Yourself From Clutter espouses a simple but easily-overlooked tenet: "Everything has a place." The thinking goes that if there was a designated storage place for every piece of crap on your desk, and if you were disciplined enough to put things back, everything would be tidy.

I think that's the allure of something like a gun case.
 

MA: Daisy Red Ryder BB gun still a big draw during the holidays

In the opening minutes of the popular holiday film, "A Christmas Story," little Ralphie Parker is mesmerized by a BB gun in a store window. Not just any BB gun, but "the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts," the Red Ryder 200-shot range model air rifle.

That same hypnotic stare made Sarah and Tim Baldwin snicker on a Wednesday afternoon while Christmas shopping at Bass Pro Shops’ Bolingbrook, Ill., store. Their son, Mitchell, 9, was holding the latest Red Ryder, turning it over in his hands, stroking it, trying to free it from its plastic case.

"You like that gun?" his mom asked, grinning. Wide-eyed Mitchell gave her a slow, somber nod.
 

At Last, a Border Crackdown

To stem this deadly flow, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is seeking emergency authority to require gun dealers near the border to report multiple purchases of the high-firepower rifles favored by cartel gunmen.

The White House Office of Management and Budget, which must sign off on the A.T.F. plan, should promptly do so. The new reporting requirement, while not a solution, is an important step. It will make it easier to identify and prosecute gun traffickers and, potentially, deter multiple sales using straw purchasers.
 

Feds sneaking around Congress to regulate firearms

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, or ATF, has a long history of excess and overreaching … and they're at it again.

Using exaggerated reports of gun smuggling from the U.S. into Mexico as their justification, the agency has filed for an emergency regulation requiring gun dealers to keep track of their customers and file special reports to ATF whenever a customer purchases more than one semi-automatic rifle within any 5-day period. Such special reporting is already required for multiple sales of handguns and has proven to be thoroughly useless as a law enforcement tool.

All I want for Christmas is a cap gun

For Christmas, we went shopping for cap guns. You know, the toy gun with the red rolls of paper caps that go bang-bang. Well, much to our surprise those toys that we played with have as kids have virtually disappeared from the shelves of retailers in central New York. Is this strange or what?

First point is that the super stores that had none did have BB guns, paint ball guns and video games of gun-toting murderers that were flying off the shelves.

Some even had .22-caliber rifles, shotguns, archery items and knives, but no cap guns could be found. I found a dollar-type store that had the rolls of caps — but no cap guns.

Police are investigating a shooting in an Asheboro barber shop that left one man dead on Christmas Eve.

Witnesses say that a man was asleep in one of the chairs in the Real Cuts barber shop, located at 801 MLK Jr. Drive, when two men came in on Friday morning. One of the men walked over to the man who was asleep in the chair and started beating him up. When the man awoke, he pulled out a gun and shot one of them in the stomach. The other man fled the scene, and so did the shooter, said witnesses.

…and Washington State gun owners once again were reminded yesterday —courtesy of a story in the Oneida, N.Y. Observer Dispatch — why they do not wish to see the Evergreen State go the way of the Empire State when it comes to regulating their right to keep and bear arms.

This comes on the heels of an arrest in a Kent murder, reported yesterday by the Seattle Times, that involved a stolen police sidearm. More about that in a moment.

Chris Brown enjoyed an evening of modern art last night (December 23).

Joined by a few friends, the R&B star visited the Kid Zoom Pop-Up Gallery at 72 Gansevoort St. in New York City.

At the event, Chris hit up Twitter to post a pic of himself standing next to a particular piece before tweeting: “U have the right to ‘bear arms.’”
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Those, who have the command of the arms in a country are masters of the state, and have it in their power to make what revolutions they please. [Thus,] there is no end to observations on the difference between the measures likely to be pursued by a minister backed by a standing army, and those of a court awed by the fear of an armed people. — Aristotle, as quoted by John Trenchard and Water Moyle, An Argument Shewing, That a Standing Army Is Inconsistent with a Free Government, and Absolutely Destructive to the Constitution of the English Monarchy [London, 1697].
