"Who could oppose laws preventing terrorists from getting guns? Obviously no one. But it would be nice if laws accomplished something more than simply making it more difficult for Americans to own guns."

"Ironically the day before CBS finally released its report on the 60 Minutes Memogate scandal, 60 Minutes was again stirring up fears about how terrorists would use 50-caliber rifles to attack Americans."

"Last year it was the semi-automatic assault-weapons ban before it expired. Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D., N.Y.) claimed the ban was 'the most effective measures against terrorism that we have.' ..." ...

... "Employers have long banned guns from the workplace as part of a violence-prevention strategy, but those policies are being tested as states pass laws making it easier for residents to carry concealed guns -- in some cases, crafting legislation that strikes down employers' attempts to keep guns off company property."

"That means employers, who have traditionally shied away from such politically charged issues as gun control, are filing lawsuits to preserve their no-guns-allowed rules. Gun owners are also fighting back, boycotting companies that ban guns or fire workers for having them." ...

"'Do you want your mail guy or delivery guy carrying a loaded gun when he comes to the door?' asks Patty Sullivan, a Pizza Hut spokeswoman. 'What if he's not happy with his tip?'" ...

"Former Presidential Press Secretary and long time law enforcement supporter Jim Brady today called for prompt, aggressive action to respond to top law enforcement officials' concerns about a new, high-powered handgun available to the public that can fire bullets that will penetrate the body armor worn by law enforcement officers."

"The handgun, the Five-Seven, made by Belgian company FN Herstal, comes equipped with a 20-round magazine. It is advertised on arms websites as 'the first of a new generation,' a handgun 'that will defeat most body armor in military service around the world today... reliably penetrates Kevlar helmets and vests...' Kevlar is the leading material for the manufacture of law enforcement vests." ...

"If you're among the millions of Americans who took airline flights in the months before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the FBI probably knows about it - and possibly where you stayed, whom you traveled with, what credit card you used and even whether you ordered a kosher meal."

"The bureau is keeping 257.5 million records on people who flew on commercial airlines from June through September 2001 in its permanent investigative database, according to information obtained by a privacy group and made available to The Associated Press."

"Privacy advocates say they're troubled by the possibility that the FBI could be analyzing personal information about people without their knowledge or permission." ...

"Although winter is getting pretty close the halfway mark, there are days and nights of cold and windy weather that keeps most of us confined to the house. To help reduce “cabin fever,” a wintertime project is probably the best way to overcome winter’s woes, although this year it’s more rain than snow."

"One project that comes to mind is converting a 22 rimfire rifle to the new 17 caliber. Hornady Mach 2 rimfire. The new cartridge is a 22 Long Rifle case necked down to accept a 17 caliber bullet. The new entry generates more velocity and higher chamber pressures than the 22 Long Rifle cartridge. This is not exactly an inexpensive affair, but it’s a lot less than buying a new 17 Mach 2 rifle." ...

"James Michael Winkelman says he fatally shot a neighbor in self-defense when the other man threatened him with a gun."

"He says 43-year-old Todd Alan Hughes pulled a handgun on him Tuesday as Winkelman tried to detain the man for police. Winkelman's daughter believed that Hughes had raped a woman in the street, and Winkelman was trying to make sure he didn't disappear before officers arrived." ...

"Winkelman said he was trying to be a good citizen. 'I'm not a police officer, but I'm certainly not going to let someone accused of a crime like that go wandering off,' he said. 'He may have been a really great person, but he was out there beating the living hell out of that woman on the street.'"

A man with a gun tried to rob the manager of Camden Hardware in the 48-hundred block of Lyndale Avenue North just after 9 last night. The manager decided to fight back, and it’s not the first time." ...

"The store manager was locking up Wednesday night when he noticed a strange car parked across the street. He ran over to his truck, but before he could get there, he was met by a man with a gun pointed right at his face, demanding money. That's when the manager pulled out his own gun and started shooting. The suspect then ran back across the street, got in a vehicle and sped off." ...

A student at Suffield Middle School is under arrest on charges he brought weapons to school, including two .22-caliber handguns.

Police say the 13-year old boy was showing off one of the guns to some friends, who then went to a school counselor and told what they saw.

Police and school officials found the 7th grader in his classroom carrying a gun clip with bullets and a knife. The second gun was found in the student's bookbag in his locker along with a BB gun and more clips.

Police say the student got the weapons after unlocking his grandfather's gun cabinet.

School officials say no threats were made by the student. He's been charged with carrying a gun on school grounds and possession of a pistol without a permit.

A note was sent home to parents about what happened.

"The use of a BB gun - long a symbol of childhood Americana - in Cobb could have additional restrictions if a review of metro-area BB gun ordinances reveals that limits are needed, county officials said."

"Cobb enforces the use of BB guns under county code, but a push by residents who say the rules are not strict enough has prompted the county to consider drafting a tougher ordinance."

"Cobb County code states that it is 'unlawful for any person to discharge a firearm, air rifle, pellet gun, slingshot, crossbow or other similar device into or over property belonging to another person or entity without first obtaining written permission from that person or entity.'" ...

... "Why then are some citizens in Cobb now clamoring for tougher anti-BB gun measures; designed essentially to make it so difficult to fire a BB gun and meet ordinance limitations, that their use anywhere in the county would be virtually impossible? Why? Because we live in an age in which every problem or perceived problem is seen not as the responsibility of parents and citizens to resolve, but the responsibility of the government - federal, state or local - to prohibit. It's the 'Patriot Act syndrome': if some action is deemed undesirable in any way, shape or form, it must be outlawed. Thus, we see the Patriot Act now being used to prosecute, under threat of 25 years in federal prison, a stupid resident of New Jersey for aiming a lawful, though dangerous laser measuring device at an aircraft, just to 'see what it did.' Even though the FBI and the New Jersey U.S. Attorney conceded there was no evidence whatsoever this New Jersey jerk was a terrorist or wanted to cause any harm, he is now being prosecuted under the full weight of the Patriot Act, a law enacted to provide the federal government tools to fight terrorists." ...

"Instead of wasting resources chasing the exaggerated and imaginary threat to public safety of BB guns, the Cobb County commission should instead require gun ownership of all county residents. The city of Kennesaw has proven the value of this stunningly successful crime reducing strategy. In Kennesaw, violent crime and property crime rates are one-fifth to one-half of its neighboring cities. Factual proof of this is found in table 8 of the 2003 Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) located on the FBI website ( http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/03cius.htm )" ...

Three Westville Grove teenagers were arrested Thursday after a passer-by reported seeing one of them holding a handgun.

Police were alerted at 3:35 p.m. that someone in a bus on Route 47 saw three males, one of whom had the gun, on North Delsea Drive near Carteret Avenue, police said.

Officers responding to the area spotted the three teenagers and detained them by 3:43 p.m. One of the boys had an airsoft replica of a Beretta semi-automatic handgun which, when cocked, uses air to fire a small, rubber ball, said police.

Two of the youths were charged with possession of marijuana. The one with the pistol will be charged with a weapons offense, although police were unsure what he would be charged with at press time.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
