"During the same period, the percentage of those inmates who bought or traded for their gun at a pawn shop, flea market, or retail outlet fell from 21% to 14%. That shift is due in part to the passage of tougher gun control laws during the 1990s, including the 1993 Brady Bill that imposed nationwide background checks on buyers," said the report's author, Caroline Wolf Harlow.

Note how this article says nothing about how increased prosecution and sentencing has anything to do with the mentioned shift.

"More gun-carrying criminals are turning to friends and family for their weapons rather than buying them at stores, gun shows or flea markets, the Justice Department reported Sunday..."

Whether Virginians elect Republican Mark Earley or Democrat Mark Warner as governor on Tuesday, one political reality is very clear when it comes to Second Amendment issues in Virginia. Politicians court anti-gun groups at their peril.

DENVER, Colorado (AP) -- Applications to carry a concealed weapon are on the rise around the country as Americans deal with fears of terrorism.

In October, Colorado officials conducted more than triple the number of background checks for concealed-weapons permits than they did a year earlier. One sheriff waived the $100 fee as a patriotic gesture and asked applicants to donate the money to the victims of the terrorist attacks.

WASHINGTON (AP) - It meets for a few days each month in a windowless room in the Justice Department basement, a highly secretive court that can shape how the government spies on some U.S. residents.

Already viewed warily by civil libertarians, the court will grow more powerful as a result of the tougher anti-terrorism laws President Bush signed into law last month....

Fresno District Attorney Ed Hunt is taking the unusual step of suing the state attorney general to overturn the regulations behind California's stringent 1999 ban on assault weapons.

Mr. Hunt, in his 19th year as chief prosecutor, says that the rules are so vague that police, gun dealers, prosecutors and gun owners cannot figure out which weapons are banned.

Mr. Hunt's suit asks the court to send the regulations back to the California Department of Justice for clarification.

As U.S. airports begin installing face-recognition systems to thwart terrorism in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, civil rights activists are rushing to decry the technology as ineffective and invasive.

The American Civil Liberties Union on Thursday derided the use of face-recognition software in airports, saying it doesn't work and "offers us neither order nor liberty."

JoinTogether.org -- "An appellate court has broken from 62 years of precedent and concluded that the 2nd Amendment guarantees an individual right to gun ownership. Some legal observers, however, are skeptical about the influence of this decision."

"Now that the Fifth Circuit has broken the string, what will the effect be?"

"Did they have an effect in influencing the court to address the issue as a side matter?"

Three years ago Tonya's son pointed a toy gun at her and pulled the trigger. "I killed you, Mom."

It was shortly after that incident that she conceived an idea that has turned into a mission: trading her son's toy gun collection for books and other nonviolent toys.

The idea was so popular that a schoolwide "buyback" program was held last spring. Now, the program is spreading to 7 other Canton schools and has become among the most ambitious "toy gun buyback" programs in the country.

The Press Spins Self-Serving Myths

The ground war is finally heating up--no, not the one in Afghanistan, the one in the Pentagon and White House briefing rooms. The brief era of good feelings between the media and the military is already turning sour as journalists complain about being kept in the dark and off the frontlines. They take it as an article of faith that they can be trusted to inform the public without damaging the war effort.

...with so much at stake in this war, journalists should be wary of confusing the public's 'right to know' with their own 'right to break a story'.

First article on page

Airport restrictions put in place after Sept. 11 can be challenging, especially for older travelers who carry adaptive equipment and medical supplies.

Travelers with disabilities may experience intensive baggage searches. Their canes, walkers and removable equipment on wheelchairs may be taken apart and scanned. And carry-on medications are likely to be thoroughly examined and even confiscated if not properly labeled and documented.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago, and a racist today. —THOMAS SOWELL
