"Visitors to the gun show couldn't articulate precisely how personal firearms might protect them from a major terrorist attack. But the general sentiment was that, however illogical, it gave them a sense of security."

--Notice the multiple quotes of Michael D. Barnes of Brady Land. The "reporter", Lois Romano, offers no opposing viewpoints.

Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) and a candidate for Governor, plans to reintroduce legislation to ban private ownership of the military's most powerful rifle, a .50-caliber "sniper weapon" that can "fire a bullet more than 4 miles, piercing tank armor, concrete bunkers and bulletproof glass," according to reports Monday.

He says there's "no reason for civilians to own rifles that are ideal tools for assassination and terrorism."

House Majority Whip Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land, has largely deferred to top Republican and Democratic leaders after the Sept. 11 terrorist strikes. But he is reasserting himself to fend off the creation of a 28,000-person government work force to scrutinize passengers' bags.

"To have Tom DeLay delay an airport security bill is immoral, is wrong, and ... a grave error. People want us to take action, and they want us to do it now." Rep. Nita M. Lowey, D-N.Y.

"Everyone knows it is a bad idea to try and board a plane carrying a box cutter, a flight manual written in Arabic, or a sack full of mysterious white powder. But with ultra-tightened airport security, a book could also prevent you from boarding that plane."

"Some customers are people who said they’d been thinking about a gun purchase and decided to go ahead and buy one after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, he said."

"A lot of people have been calling up and seeing if there’s anything they can do to volunteer..."

"The sheriff’s department does have a reserve program for volunteers who take 150 hours of training. This allows them to operate as a deputy sheriff under the supervision of a certified deputy, Schirard said."

A very inflamatory, anti-private-firearms-ownership editorial, calling the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals "new-minted radicals" who took a "radical step in its recent ruling favoring private ownership of firearms" in the "particularly distasteful case of U.S. vs Emerson."

"The gun lobby, "headed by the National Rifle Association", is pointing to the 2-1 decision as affirmation of its view that the Second Amendment bestows the right on a personal basis rather than only collectively."

"The gun-control organizations are touting the part of the decision that underscores the validity of laws that put restraints on the right to bear arms."

The U.N. is a threat to our national sovereignty and political liberties. NATO is not – or at least that's what some Bush apologists would like you to believe....

Consider: In this succinct 14-article treaty, the most frequently quoted phrase – one which repeats 11 times – is "The United Nations," the supposed nemesis of NATO's designers. In fact, the Treaty is very clear, the U.N. is the boss.

A CA gun owners group is encouraging a jittery public to respond to terrorist and criminal threats by embracing the deterrent power of firearms. -- The 70,000-strong California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA) has erected billboards across Central and So. CA saying,

"Society is safe when criminals don't know who is armed."

The slogan is, in part, a poke at CA's restrictive rules covering concealed weapons, rules that give local police wide powers to block concealed-weapons permits.

"Many airlines are losing tens of millions of dollars each day. If they are to survive, people's fear of flying must be dealt with quickly. An airline safety bill that creates one government agency to operate security has passed the Senate and is moving to the House. That solution would eliminate competition that could create innovative ways to protect passengers."
