Wife killed in "gun accident"
Submitted by: Anonymous

According to this report, the husband "was unaware there was a shell in one of the shotguns while he was cleaning it and the gun went off and hit his wife in the chest."

There are no "gun accidents." He should be charged with murder. Anyone stupid enough to "accidentally" blow a hole in his wife's chest is too stupid to be among the free. Lock him away.

"There's not enough classes for applicants."

"COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A man was arrested on a misdemeanor gun charge when an airport security guard searched his bag and found a disassembled shotgun, but only after it had gone through X-ray screening unnoticed."

"Investigators said an X-ray machine operator did not recognize the shapes of the shotgun and six rounds of ammunition on Cooper's first trip through security."

Yep, that's some kinda "security".
 

Frisking 9-Year-Olds

"Little Kristin's hazel eyes were as big as saucers and began to fill with tears as she stood there, spread-eagle, while some stranger frisked up and down her little body. I hovered close by with a weak, forced smile, in a lousy attempt to reassure my daughter while at the same time trying to hold back my anger over the absurd situation. I could do nothing to stop this groping of my little 9-year-old girl – we were in the Atlanta airport trying to catch a plane to my grandmother's funeral."

KABA NOTE: On the other hand, we cannot forget that throughout history, children have been used to hide arms and grenades.
 

No Smoking Gun in Terror Bill

Typical "gun show loophole" stuff... but on a well-known tech site.

"A well-known exception in federal gun control law commonly known as the "gun show loophole" can allow, for example, foreign tourists to walk into a gun show in 32 states and buy weapons with cash, no questions asked.

Nowhere in the Bush administration's fledgling anti-terror legislation does it address this issue."

"Americans are also re-evaluating what role the government should play following the crisis and far it should step. Seventy percent of Americans now support national identity cards. More than half say they'd sacrifice some civil liberties to prevent future attacks."

~~Remember: once a liberty is lost it will not just be handed back.

"Students and staff at Maine Central Institute were notified by Pittsfield police Thursday afternoon that a young man was headed in their direction up South Main Street with a shotgun."

"Many students were terrified and began crying."

A hunter with a shotgun now makes kids start crying -- in Maine?

If the teacher was packing heat, there wouldn't be much to fear.

Boo hoo.

Bryan, TX: The board has discussed the idea of security cameras for the past year after 1/3 of Bryan High teachers signed a petition saying they felt unsafe on the campus.

Cameras were one of the measures directly requested by the teachers to improve school safety, [school board President] Ramirez noted after the meeting.

But the $210,088 price tag is giving some trustees pause about the benefits of installing a video surveillance system.

California State University, Fresno, officials said they erred in providing Air Force investigators a list of international students after the terrorist attacks.

The university also confirmed that it had received and responded to a request from the FBI for information on 3 people who agents believed might be Fresno State students.

An entire section of Nebraska law passed following World War II deals with Americanism and the duty of schools to teach lyrics to patriotic songs, reverence for the flag, and the dangers of Communism.

"Making students memorize the lyrics to the Star-Spangled Banner is absurd," said Omaha state Sen. Ernie Chambers.

Currently, all students through sixth grade recite the pledge of allegiance, even though it is not required, and sing patriotic songs.

The Government Accounting Office has published a new report detailing problems with the government program which gives ceremonial rifles to veterans organizations for use in parades and funerals. They have provided over 300,000 rifles since the 1920's with this program. It seems that a few of the rifles turn up missing over time as organizations fade away.

A man with a rifle committed an act of vandalism by shooting the Alaska oil pipeline, causing a massive oil spill of 70,000 gallons of crude oil. Because of the leak, oil production on the North Slope has been virtually shut down.

The man has been arrested and charged with criminal mischief. The shooting apparently was a random act of vandalism by a suspect with long criminal history.

Ask them instead to support Bob Smith's "Passenger Safety" amendment that will arm pilots, thus protecting the lives of airline passengers and crewmembers. (See link for full details!)

Despite heightened security after terrorist attacks, a man was able to carry a loaded handgun into a federal building housing FBI offices and fatally shoot an officer at a security checkpoint, authorities say.

"There should be a central registry that would allow law enforcement agencies to check to see if people purchasing guns have a mental illness," Prosecutor Carl Marlinga said.

KABA NOTE: What it shows is that unarmed good citizens are at the mercy of determined criminals.
