Probation Officer Trainees urged to get Pistol Permits (NY)

NEW YORK -- "By law, officers wearing a badge can carry a handgun. They are not required by law to have a pistol permit. However, many police departments urge officers to get one."

"I don't think you can be too careful," he said. "It will give us a little more coverage. So, if someone stops and asks what we are doing with the pistol, the permit is one more legal document."

Sarchioto (also) said the permits will allow the officers to practice using their own pistols.

Funny story about cops creating crossfire and mishandling firearms, while letting the bad guys get away.

"One day, Congress enacted a law banning the private ownership of submachine guns, so the old general carried this collector’s piece down to the local cop station and gave it to the chief of police. The chief stuck it in a corner behind his desk...."

PHOENIX (AP) -- "Mesa Air Group Inc. said Thursday it would begin training its pilots to carry and use non-lethal stun guns in the cockpit in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration."

"The airline said it would use Taser brand stun guns, which fire a connected projectile up to 15 feet away. It adminsters a high voltage shock to the target, who can be left in a dazed mental state."

"Attacks on personal safety have a way of inspiring people to think more about self-protection and, in some cases, rethink old views."

"The current run on guns is a prime example."

"Gun shop owners say they are hearing fewer complaints about guns from anti-firearm advocates in the wake of the attacks."

"It's a very strange phenomenon. They don't want us around when times are good. But when things are going bad, then they want us," said Larry Williams, a gun shop owner in Naples.

When terrorists attacked New York City and Washington on Sept. 11, students in the school's Student Anti-Violence Education classes decided they wanted to do something to recognize the difficult time facing the country. As a result, each Tuesday since the attacks, the entire student body has been invited to attend a 7:45a.m. ceremony to watch the flag be raised in front of the school.

(The activity is admirable, but what exactly is a "Student Anti-Violence Education class?")

A "loophole" in state law "might" have given some convicted felons years of good hunting with a gun.

The State Assembly is working on a bill to make it illegal for felons and others prohibited from gun possession to obtain hunting licenses that require firearms.

"Extending current law to hunting privileges only makes sense," said Rep. Terry Musser (R-BlackRiverFalls), author of the bill.

Police Commissioner Edward Norris is blaming a recent rash of violent crime in the city in part on his department's anti-terrorism efforts since the Sept. 11 attacks. "My experience has been that the criminals, they sense the second your foot is off of them," he said.

But Mayor Martin O'Malley said he didn't know if it's "true or false" that the crime surge is due to the department's recent anti-terrorism focus. "I don't want people to think that last year was a fluke," he said.
