Submitted by: Anonymous

"Tests began last week for a new weapon developed by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory - a microwave beam 'gun'. The weapon, which uses a dish to fire the microwave beams, heats the skin to a painful level, causing crowds to disperse, but critics of the weapon say that it is not safe."

"The new weapon was revealed to the public in March, but testing on human volunteers is only just complete. According to the US Air Force, they would like to use this 'Active Denial Technology' (ADT) for non-lethal, peacekeeping operations, particularly in the sphere of crowd and riot control."

"U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., said he thinks a federal investigation into high-velocity air guns may reflect more of an antigun attitude than one based on legitimate safety concerns."

"The Consumer Product Safety Commission is considering recalling the 856 - a multipump air gun made by Daisy Manufacturing Co. - after a teen-ager was shot in the head with one."

"The commission is expected to decide on a recall Tuesday. Enzi has asked the commission to reassess its 'unclear, insufficient' criteria for evaluating the gun's safety."

"A recall also would violate the Constitution, he told the commission in a letter dated Thursday."

"What I do think had happened is that these attacks have made people realize just how vulnerable they can be," Goranflo added. "They are wanting to find ways to protect their homes from other crimes, like burglary, where a drug addict may break into a house to steal possessions in order to feed a habit."

"The increase in handgun sales in Jefferson County also has amounted to an increase in requests for personal protection and concealed-carry permits."

"Brooks, D-Memphis, and Sen. Thelma Harper, D-Nashville, are advocates of 'smart gun' technology, which is still in the research stage. With such technology, a weapon could be fired only by the person designated to use it."

They have sponsored legislation that would prohibit the sale of weapons without the 'smart gun' technology once it becomes available.

"A longtime commercial pilot opposes firearms in cockpits and questions proposals to strengthen cockpit doors."

"I'm adamantly opposed to guns in the cockpit," said Mike McCue, of Houston, a 17-year pilot for Continental Airlines. "I won't strap on my .44 and take it onto a plane."

"The danger, he said, is if a terrorist overpowers the pilot and obtains his or her gun."

A university lecturer who served 45 days in prison for causing three deaths in a car accident -- while people rot in jail for merely possessing a natural herb -- didn't like being locked up, called it "vile and alienating."

"Munch-Petersen made headlines in August when he was found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving. He took his hand off the wheel for a second to take a mint from his pocket and caused a pile-up that killed three people."

Upper crust = special treatment.

"A deranged railwayman armed with a shotgun opened fire at random on the streets of a French city yesterday, killing four people and injuring 10 more. The man, a 44-year-old railway guard with a grudge against his employers, was wounded by police and captured after he took refuge in a multi-storey car-park."

"...the man stepped from a car and started shooting passers-by close to the town hall and railway station just before 10am."

Lovely, gun-free societies are so peaceful, right?

Truckers themselves are taking steps to avoid having their rigs stolen or hijacked. The American Trucking Association, the nation's leading trucking organization, has urged drivers to communicate regularly with dispatchers, to vary their routes to avoid being followed and to park near other trucks or at reputable truck stops so other truckers can help keep an eye out.

[Truckers are told to watch for suspicous activity, but no mention of how to stop it.]

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
