Beware "Friendly Fire" at Airports
Submitted by: Ted Vaughn

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
A crowded airport thronged with people, slowed by security. A passenger bolts through the security measures and races up the escalator, yelling, "To hell with you. I'm gone." A National Guardsman starts to draw his gun. Even in the holster it has a bullet in the chamber and the safety is off. The Guardsman's finger is on the trigger, and halfway out of his holster, his gun fires. … What do you think happens next?...

REDFORD -- May 20, 1997, was the day Esequiel Hernandez became a casualty of the war on drugs, shot by a U.S. Marine while herding goats near his family's home.

Now, nearly five years later, the war on terrorism has many calling for increased security at the nation's borders. More patrols may make the rest of the country feel safe, but in the town of Redford, population 100, law enforcement of any kind brings back painful memories and prompts fresh fears of a remilitarized border.

Expert believes stun gun would not have prevented 9-11 hijackings:

"A Kentucky state law enforcement trainer says when it comes to providing the ultimate in airline security, there is no substitute for a firearm in the hands of trained pilots and aircrew."

-- Bottom line: Tasers just don't always do the trick.

Glendening previously won passage of legislation that requires handguns to be sold with safety locks and gun purchasers to take a safety training course.

Even so, gun control advocates said more needs to be done. One concern, they said, is the number of people taken to Shock Trauma as a result of gun violence.

"Project Safe Neighborhood", developed by the Bush administration, aims to put local prosecutors into partnerships with U.S. attorney’s offices and agencies to identify and reduce violent gun crime in local communities.

"Project Safe Neighborhood" fits into Bush’s policy of "trying to enforce existing gun laws" rather than trying to enact new ones.

He's circulating a petition that calls for a repeal of the Missouri laws that prohibit the carrying of concealed weapons. Vermont is the only state in the nation that doesn't require a permit to carry weapons.

"Vermont's concealed weapon law is a legend across the nation in the gun community," said Umscheid, a computer programmer who works for the city of St. Louis. "No restrictions: That's the Holy Grail."
 

NJ: Christine Eberle's death spotlights flaw in CCW law

In the wake of Christine Eberle’s abduction on November 12th from the Ferry Avenue PATCO station and subsequent murder, there will be many questions. These and many other factors could have had an effect on the outcome of the incident. Sadly, the one factor that could have made the most difference between life and death for Christine Eberle probably won’t ever be discussed. That factor is whether she could have defended herself if she had been able to obtain a New Jersey handgun carry permit.

"When I arrived at the airport for my trip to the annual American Wine Society conference, I saw the extra security. Police and National Guard troops were everywhere. Airline employees were checking identification to ensure no one other than ticketed passengers were allowed to proceed to the gates. And random hand searches of carry on luggage after passing the checkpoint ensured nothing was missed. All these measures were in place to make me feel safer while I traveled..."

I started reading the Christian Science Monitor (founded in 1908) as a youngster in Boston, and haven't stopped because it's often illuminating. As in a Jan. 8 story by a reporter in its Houston bureau, Kris Axtman, about how some Americans are learning to be careful about what they say or hang on their walls.

Gun-control advocates conducted a small rally Monday in Capitol Square. The weather didn't cooperate, and the General Assembly might not, either.

Yet, that didn't erode the enthusiasm of about 60 people -- many from Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads -- who showed up in a driving rain for a small pep rally before heading off to lobby their legislators.

Citing new fears of domestic terrorism, state Rep. Karen May (D,Highland Park) said Monday she wants to restrict the sale in Illinois of the .50-caliber military sniper rifle, which "at least one group has identified as a terrorist weapon."

"This is a weapon of war," May said of the rifle, which fires bullets capable of piercing armor-plated targets 2 miles away.

Charlissa Stokes receives at least one call a day from upset residents.

"Heavens yes, people are complaining," said Stokes, co-owner of Panhandle Gunslingers, 710 S. Georgia St. "There's no place to go."

Stokes, and other Amarillo residents, are ready for the city's shooting complex near Canyon to reopen. They'll have to wait a little longer.

"Most people are going out into the country and finding someone who will let them shoot on their land, and that's not safe," Stokes said.

"Recently, in an article pointing out that less government would lead to less crime, I wrote:

"In 1943, there were 44 murders in New York City. In 1995, with roughly the same population, New York City had 1,499 murders -- and this was celebrated as an improvement."

I was surprised to receive at least a half-dozen emails from people complaining that this was a misleading factoid." --Harry Browne

URBAN LEGEND: PETA never put orange vests on live deer

Claim: In an effort to protect the deer population, PETA has taken to dressing deer in orange hunters' vests. Consequently, local hunters are having a very easy time drawing a bead on these animals and downing them. A sporting goods store offers rewards for the returned vests and a buy-in competition the hunters can particpate in.

Status: False.

"Does an armed citizenry deter tyranny and invasion? History and logic both answer emphatically, Yes!"

"Politico-military recognition of the danger of invading or tyrannizing an armed populace is something long since documented in history. Does TSB forget the American Revolution? In his authoritative book Origins and Development of the Second Amendment, David T. Hardy, an attorney and expert on the history of law, quotes historian William Gordon..." --Massad Ayoob

"Right-to-carry and concealed-carry laws in many states specifically grant residents the right to have a gun in public spaces — and in many cases those laws apply to states' capitols."

"It is absolutely a waste of money as far as I'm concerned," says state Rep. Robert R. Damron, a Democrat. "It's an overreaction. The whole process — 90% of all the security measures we're going through in the country are overreactions. And, to me, then we've let the terrorists win."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. — Robert Heinlein
