Fear of suspected terrorists living in their communities and the threat of more attacks caused a surge in gun sales in the days after Sept. 11, according to gun dealers and law enforcement statistics. Many of the buyers, dealers and experts say, are buying firearms for the first time.

"Most of the rush has been new buyers who've never owned before and always thought it was safe living in an area like this."

Less than two weeks after the Interlake Sporting Association's license was suspended, Redmond will look at adopting an ordinance to regulate shooting ranges.

The ordinance has gun club members worried about the future of the 54-year-old nonprofit association, formerly the Interlake Rod and Gun Club. "It is by far the most inconclusive and restrictive ordinance ... in the city," said Bill McKay, attorney for Interlake. "I don't think anyone can withstand the scrutiny and cost proposed."

"...In an e-mail missive sent from the organization to congressional recipients, AGS staff could barely conceal their glee that Oliphant played into their shameless gambit of exploiting an irrelevant news story to advance a specific piece of their gun control agenda...."

Three letters to the editor included in link. One excerpt:

"The solution to the terrorist threat is not to eliminate carry-on bags and purses or to detain travelers over penknives and toenail clippers.

The solution lies not in the creation of an extensive new government bureaucracy of air marshals that will cost taxpayers billions a year, but the rethinking of the role of pilots and flight attendants on aircraft. We must create more wolves and fewer sheep." --Kenneth Adams

"I was promised I would spend eternity in Paradise, being fed honeyed cakes by 67 virgins in a tree-lined garden, if only I would fly the airplane into one of the Twin Towers," said Mohammed Atta, one of the hijackers of American Airlines Flight 11, between attempts to vomit up the wasps, hornets, and live coals infesting his stomach. "But instead, I am fed the boiling feces of traitors by malicious, laughing Ifrit. Is this to be my reward for destroying the enemies of my faith?"

SYDNEY, Australia -- It may not be ready for George Bush's "first war of the 21st century." But it may well be ready if there's a second.

In perhaps the most audacious upgrade of high-speed weaponry since the introduction of the Gatling Gun, Australian inventor Mike O'Dwyer has developed a machine gun that can fire bullets at a rate of 1 million rounds per minute.

BOSTON (AP) -- An anonymous tip alone is not grounds for police to stop and frisk people, the Supreme Judicial Court affirmed Friday.

"An anonymous tip that someone is carrying a gun goes not, without more, constitute a reasonable suspicion to conduct a stop and frisk of that individual," Spina wrote. "...It was the defendant's right to ignore the officer."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd. — Alexis de Tocqueville
