The county's Emergency Management Department is set to publish a brochure informing citizens of ways to prepare for terrorist attacks and what to do in case one happens, said department director David Van Nostrand.

Topics include how to create a family emergency plan, how to prepare an emergency kit and what to do during and after different types of attacks.

"Federal and Los Angeles County officials have decided not to prosecute an El Monte police officer who fatally shot a 65-year-old man in the back during a 1999 narcotics raid in Compton."

No drugs were found, nor was there any proof that the elderly man was going for a gun in this house with no drugs.

Quote of the day: "A police officer does not need to wait to see a gun to defend themselves." (sic)
--El Monte, California city attorney, Eugene P. Ramirez

"Attorney Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. on Thursday accused the Los Angeles Police Department and its civilian overseers of twisting evidence to support a police officer's version of events in the fatal shooting of an actor who allegedly pointed a replica handgun at the officer during a Halloween party last year."

Cochran is curious "how Lee was shot three times in the back and once in the back of the head, while still pointing a gun at Officer Tarriel Hopper."

In an effort to cut off terrorists' access to another weapon, the Senate has agreed to more stringent screening for charter planes and other noncommercial aircraft.

Passengers and crew would have to be screened - by metal detector, X-ray or other means - before boarding, and planes would be searched before takeoff. The legislation would also require background checks on any foreigner who wants to buy, lease or charter a plane.

The military troops standing guard at airports across the nation in response to the Sept. 11 attacks should soon be replaced by civilians, the Pentagon's top official for homeland security said Friday.

"At some point, we work ourselves out of a job, because we much prefer to have the state and local people in emergency services be able to take care of most of these things rather than take dedicated resources of the department," [Army Secretary Thomas] White said.

Some Tarrant County houses of worship are throwing away mysterious mail, adding a police presence and barring backpacks in sanctuaries since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the anthrax exposures that followed.

But the biggest security change at many religious institutions has been an increased awareness of possible risks.

[Security guards are mentioned, but concealed handgun licensees (CHLs) are not.]

Anti-Terror bill: A missed opportunity to tighten Gun laws?
Submitted by: Anonymous

A "leading gun control group" said the anti-terrorism legislation signed into law Friday is good as far as it goes, but it should have done more to tighten the nation's gun laws.

Michael Barnes, president of the Brady campaign, criticized Congress for failing to address "weak federal firearm laws that terrorists exploit to stockpile their deadly weapons."

Barnes wants Congress pass a law that would allow federal law enforcement agencies keep a permanent record of every firearm sale.

At the first meeting of the House-Senate conferees on S.1438, the Defense Authorization bill, Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) offered some exceptions to the privately owned former U.S. military guns that could be destroyed.

But those exceptions are too narrow, according to members who have seen the proposed amendment. The entire Sec.1062 must be eliminated, and hopefully will be when the conferees again meet, tentatively Tuesday.

Acting Aldermanic President James Shrewsbury also proposed Friday that the city bar anyone under 21 from possessing or buying a BB gun small enough to be concealed unless the buyer shows proof of a parent's permission.

Shrewsbury proposed the ordinance because police say the guns are becoming more and more prevalent and sometimes are used in crimes. "They're used as a weapon of intimidation," Shrewsbury said. "It's becoming a serious problem."

A new draft resolution of the 1st Committee (Disarmament & Int'l Security), supported by the U.S., would have the General Assembly convene a conference no later than 2006 to review progress made in implementing the Programme of Action adopted at the one United Nations Conference aimed at "eliminating the illicit small arms trade".

FLI finds the involvement of the U.S. in these action to disarm the world irresponsible in light of today's threats against civilians by terrorist organizations.

"Although the group formerly called Handgun Control, Inc. has tried to spin Judge Garwood’s decision as a triumph for gun control, the Fifth Circuit’s decision in Emerson shines like a beacon for the Bill of Rights. We hope this decision turns the twenty-first century into the century of rediscovering the Second Amendment."

Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites) said Thursday that homeland security is not a temporary measure for the current crisis, but "will become permanent in American life... I think of it as the new normalcy."

"Many of the steps we have now been forced to take will become permanent in American life. They represent an understanding of the world as it is, and dangers we must guard against perhaps for decades to come," Cheney said.

"we may well build a prison for ourselves with something called homeland security while doing nothing to combat the root causes of terrorism."

"We have promoted a foolish and very expensive domestic war on drugs for more than 30 years. It has done no good whatsoever. I doubt our Republic can survive a 30-year period of trying to figure out how to win this guerilla war against terrorism. Hopefully, we will all seek the answers in these trying times with an open mind and understanding."

The purpose of the Act was to prohibit the use of the Army in civilian law enforcement, because American tradition dictates the separation of the military and civilian authority. The misuse of the military by the civilian authority has always been the real basis for Posse Comitatus.

Americans had better get concerned about the use of military for domestic police purposes, the growing power of federal bureaucracies, and the unconstitutional misbehavior of Congress and the executive branch.
