Senate Votes to Arm Cargo Pilots

"The latest government terror warning is giving a push to the stalled effort to allow cargo pilots to carry weapons in the cockpit."

"The Homeland Security Department warned police last week that al-Qaida may be plotting to fly cargo planes from another country into U.S. nuclear plants, bridges, dams or other targets."

"That warning prompted the Senate to pass a bill late Monday that would allow cargo pilots to carry guns, according to Sen. Jim Bunning, R-Ky., the bill's sponsor."

" 'It closes a big loophole in our homeland security,' he said."

"Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning hopes the latest warning from the Homeland Security Department will accelerate efforts to beef up security on cargo planes by allowing pilots to carry firearms if they want to."

"The warning, issued to law enforcement officials and emergency workers Friday, said al-Qaida terrorists may be plotting to fly cargo planes from overseas into crucial targets in the United States such as nuclear plants, bridges or dams."

"The warning came from Homeland Security official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity and said the information came from a single source overseas and had not been corroborated."
 

Holding gun makers liable misses the mark

"Regardless of how you feel about guns, holding their manufacturers and distributors responsible for what careless or evil people do with legal and properly functioning products simply doesn’t make sense. To do so would open up a Pandora’s Box. According to the Centers for Disease Control, automobiles kill more than four times as many children annually as guns do. So, do we hold carmakers and dealers liable for these fatalities? Of course not. Manufacturers’ defects not withstanding, the drivers are at fault, not the cars."

"The possible parallels are endless. As The Wall Street Journal pointed out in a recent editorial, should Sony be liable if someone uses one of its cameras to film child pornography? How about bridge builders if someone 'ends it all' by jumping off one? Grim stuff, for sure, but almost anything can be a murder weapon or a suicide aid."

"Congress agrees. The House of Representatives passed its version of the Craig-Baucus bill by a 285-140 vote, with 63 Democrats joining the GOP majority in voting for the bill. More than 30 state legislatures have passed similar laws."

" 'I'm all for the right to bear arms,' said Lisbon, WI police chief, Patrick Clarey, 'but there has to be a balance, and the way this law is written, it would not benefit society.' "

"The first tip off that an anti-gun statement is coming is found at the very beginning of the Chief's statement, where he tries to wrap his anti-gun view in the Second Amendment. To say that there has to be a balance in the area of our liberty protected by the Second Amendment means that he has not read the amendment nor read what the founders had to say about it. When they said that the "...right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed," they were not talking about balance. They were telling Chief Clarey to keep his hands off our guns."

"It should be clear why the government and your local police don’t want you to have guns: If you can defend yourself, you don’t have as much need of the police, or indeed, the military. More ominously, you can defend your person, property, and family from the government itself: An armed and educated America would not only need to be less afraid of such government crimes as Ruby Ridge and Waco; that sort of America might clamor for the reduction of the size of government, or even the institution of a different one (a natural right our founders understood and held dear). That our government doesn’t like the prospect of individual gun ownership is not unique to the US – governments all over the world have gun-control laws. Naturally, such laws are no more effective elsewhere than they are in the US."

"Teenagers who murdered in a dozen other major school shootings in the past seven years thought it was."

"The details differ, but a common thread runs through nearly all of these cases: School shooters are consistently described by classmates as "different" — specifically skinny, lanky, chubby or scrawny. These characteristics are exactly the opposite of how one might imagine a gun-wielding killer to look. And that might be the point."

"An injured manhood seems to lurk behind the explosive rage of many young male shooters. Perceived — and mocked — as different, they target more athletic boys."

"...the witless process of selecting out people at random for further screening. How many terrorists who flew airplanes into buildings in 2001 were little old ladies in wheelchairs? How many were ladies? How many were toddlers? For that matter, how many were white males? The answer? None."

"And yet, TSA – to maintain 'political correctness' – has a system that could actually ignore a man who could clearly be a terrorist by his appearance, in favor of hassling a towheaded little boy terrified by the procedures at the airport. What should be an exciting adventure for a little boy or girl has become something of a terror – all in the name of 'PC.' This insanity must end!"
 

Why true conservatives sound liberal: each side is against the centrist middle

"True conservatives often sound liberal now because they see and comment on the same faults of the present administration, which is a false 'conservative' cabal of populists who don't care how many people they must court for votes as long as they win. To label proponents of huge government, huge federal debt, huge military operations against nations that were never a threat to national security is obviously not conservative in any way, manner, shape, or form."

"As anyone vaguely familiar with the Founding Fathers and the constitution would know, no law robbing us of our personal sovereignty will serve to protect us. It will instead surely enslave us. Whether or not a business owner chooses to allow smoking in his or her place of business is none of the government's concern. They are free to set their own standards, just as all of us are free to choose to patronize that business or not."

"Sure, we were told these laws were being drafted to protect us, from the evils of tobacco. Once more a classic case of Liberalism taking away our rights and seeking to remake America from a Constitutional Republic into a nanny state!" ...

"Law is only what those who live within it make it. It is up to each one of us to stand up and be heard when we see something morally wrong and stop it if we can or prosecute it later if we can't. Too many of us, now, think that the federal government or our local governments are kings who can't be questioned concerning misdeeds. This idea is strangely similar to the Nuremberg Laws that allowed Hitler to wreak his insanity all across Europe."

A Port Kembla hotel owner has been put on a good behaviour bond after a total of 12 firearms charges were heard in Wollongong Local Court yesterday.

The former Port Kembla Chamber Of Commerce official, Nove Despotovski, pleaded not guilty to possessing an unregistered firearm and failing to surrender it to police and succeeded in having the charges dismissed.

Despotovski pleaded guilty to a further eight charges related to the storage of firearms.

Magistrate Robert Walker put Despotovski on a good behaviour bond and ordered no criminal conviction be recorded against his name.

An application by police to destroy the weapons and ammunition they seized in a raid on Despotovski's hotel will be heard on December 8.

"A two-term Justice of the Peace Court magistrate has been suspended because of allegations of inappropriate behavior on the job including pointing a gun at a court clerk, according to Supreme Court records released Monday."

"The gun was not fired, but the display prompted officials to suspend Magistrate John W. O'Bier, 57, for three months, according to court papers. At the end of the suspension, O'Bier's $61,500 yearly salary and benefits will be restored. But he cannot return to the bench until he can demonstrate to medical and treatment providers that he is fit for duty."

Hobbs wants to purchase 15 handguns, because when the department has all its positions filled, they will have 12 officers in need of guns. There will be three extra."

"A Scotland Yard report finds that the conversion of replica guns and air guns, such as those used in paintball games, are contributing to rising gun crime rates in England and Wales."

" 'In recent years there has been an extraordinary improvement in the quality of the replica weapons available on the British firearms market, and, in particular, a rapid growth in 'air-soft', black-powder, CO2, or 'blank-firer' replica weapons, directed in particular at war-games enthusiasts and at other 'sport shooters',' the report said."

"According to the report, the compact Italian-made Derringer blank-firing pistol is 'notoriously simple to convert' and is popular among girlfriends of drug dealers because it's easy to conceal."

A police officer has allegedly shot and killed a prison warder he believed was having an affair with his wife.

Henry Andrews was shot three times and fatally wounded by a police inspector at the policeman's home in on Saturday after the officer accused Andrews of having an affair with his wife.

The policeman was arrested and charged soon after the incident.

The Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) is investigating the incident. The watchdog body has opened a murder docket in connection with the matter and is also looking at whether the police were in dereliction of duty in allowing the suspect to retain his service pistol, despite a pending charge of attempted murder.

A ban on toy guns in Annapolis has been put on hold.

Rather than see her proposal go down in defeat, Annapolis Alderwoman Cynthia Carter tabled the measure Monday night.

The legislation just didn't have enough backing, but Carter said she will try to line up enough support to pass the measure soon.

Opponents on the council said the legislation isn't necessary and would infringe on a parent's right to choose toys for their children.

The measure was introduced by Carter after a 7-year-old boy was arrested in April for aiming a toy gun at a video store clerk. The ordinance would have outlawed realistic-looking toy guns, and imposed penalties of up to three months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

"On the New Hampshire's website, under the Supreme Court rulings, case number 03-0050 - In the Matter of David G. Blanchflower and Sian E. Blanchflower, the court has ruled that women having sex with women is not adultery, using the Webster's Dictionary for reference. What does this have to do with firearms?"

"To the People of the State of New Hampshire, you can now set as precedent, any Second Amendment case, whether it be at the State level or Federal, the use of the Webster's Dictionary to your defense!" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. — Noah Webster in "An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution," 1787, in Paul Ford, ed., Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, at p. 56 (New York, 1888).
