For example, it was revealed in the World Trade Center bombing trial that Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda had acquired at least 25 of those 50-caliber sniper rifles (although probably not at guns shows)..." --Steven H. Gunn, Chairman, Gun Violence Prevention Center of Utah

Since 9-11, Michelle Cottle of TheNewRepublic.com has quoted women on the street that "think all women oughta carry a cellphone and a .357. Loaded." Does anyone else sense a tidal shift in public consciousness, here?

"Americans have learned that being harmless does not guarantee that they will not be harmed: in fact, it seems that terrorists (like ordinary criminals) actually prefer victims who cannot strike back."

Followup of story 2 days ago:

Four law enforcement officers jailed on drug charges -- "They also routinely robbed drug dealers for cash and drugs they could sell...by breaking in and...serving false search warrants..."

"The problem is, they (vice officers in different law enforcement agencies) all use each other in undercover sting operations," said Nixon. "You have to wonder. Are there more?"

Sharon Schmutz probably wouldn't be offended if you referred to her as a pistol-packing mama. She is a mother after all, and she carries a Glock 9mm. In fact, she's a licensed firearms instructor and teaches the safety course required for anyone seeking a concealed-carry permit in Kentucky.

Schmutz is also certified in basic pistol and personal protection pistol instruction by the NRA, and in the NRA's Eddie Eagle children's safety and First Steps to Handgun Ownership programs.

The worst part of the USA PATRIOT Act is not subject to the sunset clause; it is now a permanent part of our laws.

'Sneak and Peek Warrants' allow law enforcement agencies to enter a residence or office with a search warrant when the occupant is away; search (in some cases, seize) property; and not tell the suspect until "later" -- for ANY crime.

"That's why we have a 4th Amendment, to prevent such abuses from happening ever again. Or rather, we had a 4th Amendment." Nat Hentoff

JoAnn McGuckin lives in a tiny motel room. Her husband is dead. Six of their children, who stood off deputies for 5 days last spring, are in a foster home.

JoAnn is still "angry and refusing to cooperate" with "state efforts to reunite the family."

The article continues: "Instead of survivalists, it turned out they were a normal family..."

Under the state's "efforts", McGuckin cannot regain custody of her children "until she fulfills certain, undisclosed conditions."

"...no sacrifice is too great to ensure our security and protect our freedom. Now, let's go out in the yard and raise that new flag. I'll hoist her up and you sing The Battle Hymn of the Republic -- real loud so Justin's mom will hear when the police come to take her away."

Five hundred of the city's police officers will receive new, high-powered weapons once reserved for elite units but increasingly regarded as necessary for a police department with a sharper focus on fighting terrorism, officials said yesterday.

Although the proposal was in the works long before Sept. 11, it gained momentum in the weeks after the terrorist attacks.

At another Thursday SWAT raid (part of a "drug investigation"), the entry included use of a stun grenade. When police tossed the grenade through a window...it landed on a mattress on which a girl lay. The girl was treated for "minor" burns.

Twenty-nine workers whose jobs allowed them access to airplanes and runways at San Francisco International Airport lost their security badges after record checks found that they were felons, airport officials said.

A new federal law requires 420 U.S. airports to compare the fingerprints of employees who work in secure areas with those stored in a national FBI database.

Pope John Paul, in his clearest words ever on terrorism, said that while the international community had a right to defend itself against attacks, an entire nation could not be singled out for blame.

"There exists therefore a right to defend oneself against terrorism, a right which, as always, must be exercised with respect for moral and legal limits in the choice of ends and means," he said.

At a community meeting, residents asked police to give out information on sexual assaults in the area. "I'm grateful for these meetings, but I think they're happening a bit too late," one resident said.

Police admitted that some officers might still need training on the new procedures, but that progress is being made. Police also discussed some "basic safety tips." A self-defense workshop is planned for next month.

KABA NOTE: We wonder if armed defense will be discussed.
