"With the advent of the 'Beltway Sniper' shootings, there has been the predictable hue and cry for more gun control, mostly in the form of a 'ballistic fingerprinting database' for all firearms. Simply put, the idea is that bullets recovered from shootings could be matched to images stored in a computer, the owner of the weapon could then be determined and an arrest could be made." ...

In some cases, these folks are going to walk into their local agencies and try to obtain the application forms in vain...at which point they'll pull out the copy of the state-standard form they can download from this website. How they'll be treated at that point is a crapshoot. Some will be able to apply; if past experiences hold, some will be threatened in various ways for even daring to apply, some will be pressed for campaign contributions or outright bribes, some will be turned away flat. In as many cases as possible, the reactions will be fully documented in affidavits and/or declarations by the applicants."

"Airing Friday, November 15, 2002, at 9 P.M. ET/PT on PBS (check local listings at www.pbs.org/now/sched.html): In America terrorists can get guns-in large part because of loopholes in federal law regulating firearms that have been pushed through by the gun lobby. A review of hundreds of federal terrorism cases reveals a clear pattern of terrorists using the United States as an open market for gun trafficking. But if loopholes in the gun laws are allowing terrorists to purchase guns, why did Attorney General John Ashcroft limit the FBI's power to use gun records to investigate terrorism?" ...
 

UK: US allows pilots to carry firearms

CHOICE EXCERPTS...

"It is a move that seemed unthinkable even a year ago. Then a majority of pilots said they feared that taking guns on an aircraft would increase the danger, and that guns could be seized and used by terrorists."
Actually, that's pretty far from the truth. The coalitions of pilots may not have been organized enough yet to show the strength they now show. But smart pilots have always wanted to be able to protect the cockpit, their passengers and crew, and the people on the ground.
"The main obstacle to total White House approval appears to be concern about firearm security - particularly the way in which the guns will be carried through airports."
Make pilots carry them in non-ready status -- in a box, or locked and unloaded, for example -- and you're inviting pilots to be attacked by criminals who would like a free handgun. Only an irrational or ill-informed person would suggest or support such a thing.
"Britain's Department for Transport has said that the US will have to negotiate with every country it flies to on the 'logistical and legal' arrangements for handling the firearms on arrival."
Well, then get to it. Draw up your anti-gun plans and let's see how many people refuse to fly foreign flights but return to flying domestically.

Russia: Gun Groups See Steady Bleed Into Militias; Domestic Unrest Still Growing In United States

This report on the Russian Pravda is over a year old... but it's a good reminder that sometimes, the truth lacking in American mainstream media can be found in the international press. If you missed it when we first ran it, consider reading it.
-------
... "There are three issues that motivate America’s militia movement – support of gun rights, opposition to taxation, and opposition to the United Nations and the loss of America’s sovereignty to global corporate rule – a system the militias see as socialism and anti-globalists label capitalism, and which is really a blend of the worst elements of the two. Among these issues, the most important, the one that seems most immediately threatening, and which has been the prime motivation for the existence of the militia movement, has been the possibility of nation-wide confiscation of firearms by the US Federal government. In America, the people know that the foundation of their liberty is their ability to use firearms to resist government police and military personnel, and it is widely believed that an attempt to confiscate their arms will be the first step in imposing a dictatorship on US citizens." ...

"Cochise County's 'official newspaper' has issued a call to arms and is spearheading the formation of a local militia to combat illegal immigration."

"Tucson human rights activist Isabel Garcia said the Tombstone Tumbleweed's rhetoric is the latest manifestation of a militant vigilantism that has long existed in Cochise County with the acceptance and encouragement of local officials."

"She said Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever's public friendship with groups like Glenn Spencer's American Patrol, the sheriff's lack of investigation into Roger and Don Barnett's armed detention of illegal entrants and the clear unwillingness on the part of Cochise County Attorney Chris Roll to investigate and prosecute the two brothers have given them credibility and encouraged groups like Texas-based Ranch Rescue and the new Tombstone Militia."

ORIGINAL TITLE: "No charges filed in Oct. Killing"

Good story. Police called out more than once, guy threatening family with knife and bottles through windows. Mr. Psycho returns five minutes after police leave.

No alternative but to end him.

Goodbye.

Choice quotes:
"During his assault, Rios-Gomez threw bottles through the windows of the residence and then kicked in the door of the home, all the while continuing his verbal threats."

"Police responded to the home for the third time, at approximately 4:10 a.m. As officers were en route to the call, they received word that shots had been fired." ...

"After examining the physical evidence and hearing from a number of witnesses, the grand jury returned its findings -- the shooting was not criminal."
Irresponsible people who are afraid to protect themselves and their loved ones can let knife-wielding, bottle-throwing freaks try to kill them while police are en route -- if that's the value they place on their lives. We'll stick to our guns and count ourselves lucky we're not afflicted with whatever it is that would make someone surrender to a violent predator intent on killing.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
