Sounds more like a vow to intensify supressing what little freedom the Europeans have left...

"EU governments hope to agree on a European arrest warrant and streamlined extradition procedures by year's end."

"The chiefs urged the EU to impose a common identity card...."

"Americans are raring to kick some butt."

"...civilians are preparing for the battle at home by learning self-defense tactics, furiously working out and even arming themselves."

"Right after the attacks we sold twice as many guns and ammunition as usual. A lot of females, couples and first-time buyers of firearms have come in. A lot of them say they've been thinking about it for a long time and this stopped them from procrastinating..."
 

Information Lockdown

The U.S. government wants to remove the policy of open information. Any information that the public wants must be pried out through legal means. Even if the information wanted has nothing to do with terrorism. Ashcroft is calling on agencies to withhold information whenever the law permits.

Not directly KABA related, but this is an illustration of the policy preferences of the Attorney General whom folks are hoping will stand up for the 2nd Amendment.
 

KNOX: House To Vote On Arming Pilots

"Oct. 31 Neal Knox Update -- The Republican version of the
Aviation Security Act, H.R. 3150, is scheduled to be on the House
floor tomorrow. It includes a little-noticed, oddly worded
provision that would allow commercial airline pilots to be armed --
but neither mandates nor assures it."

"That's essentially what the Senate-approved amendment by Sen.
Bob Smith (R-N.H.) accomplishes. Both give the ultimate decision
to the airline companies, which will mean we gunowners will have to
noisily vote with would ticket purchases to assure that carriers
approve armed pilots."
 

Berkeley, California anti-gun sitting ducks reap the rewards for their anti-self-defense efforts

"A man armed with a handgun robbed a clothing store in South Berkeley Monday night, holding hostage four people, before making off with an undisclosed sum of money...

"After the suspect entered Ovation, a women's clothing boutique on College Avenue...he took out a handgun and pointed it at a cashier. The suspect then ordered the cashier to take the customers to the back of the store..."

"But when a female customer objected, the suspect punched her in the eye, Harris said. The four customers and employees were herded into the store's bathroom."

KABA NOTE: Most likely, the woman who got punched will blame the gun instead of realizing that if she'd been armed, her objection would have carried substantially more weight.

TAMPA - "Although her family had guns, Noelle Scolaro never touched one growing up."

"But at 31, Scolaro, a single woman who often travels alone, started thinking about buying one."

"Then came the Sept. 11 attacks. They 'finalized my decision,' Scolaro said. 'This has kind of hit us very close to home.'"

"Scolaro, who has her own business in Brandon, bought a handgun on credit and has been practicing at a Tampa firing range. She has plenty of company."

"The number of people seeking background checks for gun purchases in Florida jumped 50 percent in the weeks after the attacks, according to figures from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. FDLE agents process the applications, which are required by law and match the names of prospective buyers against criminal records, warrants and domestic violence injunctions."

Basic gun safety rules -- violated.

"Police Chief Ronald Marcotte called it a 'sad day' for the department."

"The Connecticut Chapter of the Second Amendment Sisters is inviting the public to have a blast and try out more than 30 automatic weapons at its Machine Gun Blast fund raiser from 1 p.m. to dusk Saturday at the Metacon Range."

"For 25 cents per round, the public will have a choice of 30 machine guns to try under the supervision of qualified instructors and range officers..."

"...the fund raiser is also for the Metacon Club and the Silver Shield Foundation..."

"A sophomore at Western Harnett High School was charged Monday with bringing a handgun and 28 bullets onto campus, authorities said."

"The 15-year-old boy, whose name was withheld because of his age, told authorities he planned to trade the gun with another student for a pair of shoes."

KABA NOTE: Since the so-called "Gun Free Schools" act was supposed to keep people from bringing guns to school but didn't, repeal it and allow teachers and administrators to defend themselves and their students.

The White House tried on Tuesday to sway undecided House members for what is expected to be a close vote on aviation security changes, including whether baggage screeners should be federal employees.

But Republican supporters ... said airport security should be a government function no different from that of customs, immigration, firefighting or the FBI.

"I'm a strong conservative," McCain said. "But law enforcement is a function of government."

TUCSON - "A key factor in a long-running war over gun show sales apparently turns out not to have been true."

"Kajornsak Prasertphong, convicted last year of killing three people at a restaurant in 1999, said under oath last week that he did not buy the gun used in the slayings at a Tucson Convention Center gun show."

"That was a major factor leading to an attempt to bar gun show sales without background checks."

He then appears to have committed suicide."
