"Today there was a disturbing report that the military practices as many as three or four times a week how to shoot down hijacked commercial airliners."

"What really makes this disturbing is that our government is willing to kill a planeload of innocent American citizens in order to eliminate the possibility that the hijacked American airliner may be crashed into some ground target but is not as willing to arm and train commercial pilots in the use of handguns so that they might at least have the opportunity to exercise a final act of self defense before the fighter jets fire a missile into a group of American men, women and children." ...

"A group of 23 churches seek to have the state's concealed handgun law overturned, contending the law infringes on religious freedoms guaranteed in the state and federal constitutions, according to a lawsuit prepared by the group."

"It is the second church-based challenge to the law prepared by David Lillehaug, a former U.S. Attorney for Minnesota."

"The group complains that the handgun law denies them the ability to chose the wording of signs posted on church property informing the public that guns are banned there." ...

You know, if they treated the Second Amendment the same way, gun ownership would be required.

QUOTE OF THE MONTH:

"A gun is like a rattlesnake. You can try to keep it in a cage, but sooner or later it's going to get out and hurt someone."

"Ceasefire Oregon's successful annual gun turn-in program may be coming to an end after taking in about 6,000 unwanted guns in the last 10 years."

"Wheeler and other Ceasefire Oregon volunteers hope to replace the annual turn-ins with a year-round program."

"She said there's no doubt that some form of gun collection program is worthwhile."

"Many of the people who turned in guns Saturday for gift certificates would agree, including Judi Ellison, who handed over a 9 mm pistol she took away from several children in her neighborhood."

" 'I saw them playing with it, and I couldn't believe it. I took it away and hid it when they weren't looking,' said Ellison." ...

So a thief used the turn-in to get rid of her loot, then confessed to a crime and is held up as a model citizen.

A judge in the Northern District of New York court rejected a lawsuit brought by a U.S. naval attorney who wanted to carry a concealed weapon while visiting relatives in New York.

In his lawsuit David D. Bach said that the state is leaving him defenseless when visiting his relatives in Saugerties, N.Y.

He further argued that the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives him the right to bear arms.

Bach, who has top-secret security clearance, lives in Virginia Beach, Va. "Because of my occupation within the Department of Defense and Naval Special Warfare, I believe my family and I are at greater risk of being targeted by those seeking to carry out symbolic acts of terror," he said in court papers.

I can honestly say that while we are often led to believe that minorities are nearly a block-vote against concealed carry, EVERY single person of a minority race I spoke with at the 'Defense' Walk expressed interest in obtaining their right to self-defense.

The Supreme Court of Ohio has taken one last gratuitous swipe at the Second Amendment, as well as the Ohio Constitution: “There is no constitutional right to bear concealed weapons.” Thus sayeth Justice Pfeifer.

That bastard, the Second Amendment, must now be taking perverse delight in watching the bastardization of the First. The wolf, having exhausted the takings at the fringe, is now in the midst of the flock.

Men, the stronger of the species, commit rape. Women, the weaker of the species get raped.

Interesting, isn’t it, that the four male justices voted against concealed-carry and two female justices voted to allow it.

Back when concealed weapons were common the framers of the Missouri Constitution specifically stated that citizens did not have a natural right to carry hidden guns.

Nearly 130 years later, a law set to take effect Saturday will specifically allow some Missourians to hide guns in their pants, coats, purses and such.

So is there a conflict between the constitution and the new law?

On the surface, it might appear that way. But legally speaking, it may not. ...

Sessions Court Judge David Brand ruled evidence in the search was illegal because of the delay.

The Jefferson City Council wrestled with two potentially divisive issues Monday: The state's new concealed weapons law and the question of smoking in public places.

On Monday, the council considered two bills in response to the Legislature's recent decision allowing gun owners with permits to carry hidden weapons.

City Attorney Nathan Nickolaus said the first bill could bring city ordinances in line with new state laws; the second bill could create zoning provisions for firing ranges, gun clubs, and skeet and trap shoots within the city limits.

The two bills could be voted on Oct. 20. But the City Council has to work fast -- the state law goes into effect on Saturday.

Master the five toughest shots on deer. The odds are that the shot you get this season will be one of them.

1. The Uphill-Downhill Shot
Deer live to ripe old ages because hunters can’t remember whether or not you’re supposed to hold high on a downhill shot, or low on an uphill shot, or what, and when they actually have a deer in the crosshairs, the fact that they can’t remember causes them to panic, hold somewhere over or under the deer, and pull the trigger—only to be rewarded by the sight of a perfectly healthy buck bounding away. The rule is, you hold low for uphill and downhill shots. The steeper the angle of the shot in either direction, the less gravity pulls on your bullet—and the less you have to compensate for range. ...

The 14-year-old with the guns was caught by police outside the AuSable Valley Central School, but not before school officials locked students inside the school gym for their safety. No one was hurt.

According to police, the boy's troubles started with a drug deal last month. The teen was caught with marijuana and a pipe at school, said police, and he turned in another student allegedly involved in the drug deal.

Police said Monday, the boy got word that the other student was going to beat him up, and that's why he was bringing the guns to school.

UNC Charlotte organized a campus community activity that took a stand against domestic violence on Oct. 2, at the Belk Tower for that reason.

The focus of the different programs on campus was to build the student's self-esteem, identify abusers and teach self-defense techniques.

A Muslim rebel was shot dead by Philippine police in the toilet of a Manila detention center yesterday, ending a three-hour hostage drama in which three guards were killed and three wounded.

The attempted jailbreak -- following the escape of an Indonesian militant from the same facility in July -- is likely to compound concerns about security ahead of a visit to Manila by US President George W. Bush on Oct. 18.

Police said the rebel, Buyungan Bungkak, grabbed an M16 rifle from one of his minders just after dawn yesterday while being escorted to an exercise yard at the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters.

Shame on Snitch for giving the article on the Patriot Act the title “Though heavily scorned, the law has little effect locally”.

Don’t you know that many of us get most of our news by skimming the headlines, and the message from this headline is, “Even if you are having your rights taken away, you won’t notice it much in Louisville.”

Our freedoms under the Bill of Rights are under an attack such as has not been seen since the McCarthy era, and we are supposed to go along in the name of Homeland Security.

Right now the government can go into our e-mail, credit and banking records, even our library accounts, without any subpoenas ... and without informing the person whose privacy is being invaded.

Alternate Title: Setting the Stage to Ban Airguns

"A beautiful cat died in agony after mindless thugs shot it with an airgun."

"Ginger and white cat Casper, aged eight, was blasted with the gun on September 25, and died less than 12 hours later."

"Owner Louise Fagan wanted to publicise the cruel killing in the hope of shaming those responsible. She said: 'My cat suffered a pellet shot and eventually died in agony.

" 'I would like to say that whoever is responsible for this cruel act, I hope you are now satisfied.

" 'Not only was I very upset, but I had to explain this to my 15-year-old daughter, who had grown up with Casper since she was seven. I will never get another cat while living in this area." ...

"American-style directly elected local sheriffs could decide how neighbourhoods are policed under a shake-up proposed by the Tories."

"The aim is to give people a bigger say on policing on their local streets, with the home secretary stripped of powers to control police forces' priorities."

"In his speech, Mr Letwin said the Tories had to show they were on the side of the victims of crime on Britain's 'hard pressed estates'."

"The Conservatives say the move would allow communities to decide, for example, to spend more money on fighting gun crime if that was a particular local problem." ...

Ghod forbid that you actually address the root support systems of crime, like a prohibition on self-defense!
