Some months ago it was reported here that - despite all the hallabalu arising from Congress’ recent mandate that AMTRAK allow passengers to transport unloaded guns in checked luggage - it’s generally NOT a crime under federal and most states’ laws to carry loaded handguns on AMTRAK trains. Now . . . WMATA has publicly acknowledged that gun carry on the DC Metro system is not banned, but merely governed by the laws of each of the 3 member jurisdictions: Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

"That’s funny. I don’t see anything in there about 'Assess where in the Constitution such authority in data-gathering is determined consistent with the intent of the Founders that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' I guess that kind of archaic thinking generally results in a scornful 'Are you serious?' rejection these days…"

For instance at North Mountain Sportsmen's Club, the WITO event includes not only shotgun shooting, but cowboy action shooting and muzzleloaders, archery, canoeing, kayaking, wilderness cooking and crafts. "These classes have been offered all seven years, and they are still very popular," Craft said.

WITO events focus on an endless variety of outdoor skills. Some of these are fly fishing, wild turkey hunting, birdwatching, canoeing, camping, outdoor cooking, and even a taste of history can be included with a pioneer woman skills class which involves building fires with flint and steel, and experiencing life in the 1800's.
 

Why the TSA is MIA

Bruce Schneier is perhaps the leading critic of...the [TSA].

...

Here's his analysis:

"Exactly two things have made airplane travel safer since 9/11: reinforcing the cockpit door, and convincing passengers they need to fight back. Everything else has been a waste of money. Add screening of checked bags and airport workers and we're done. Take all the rest of the money and spend it on investigation and intelligence."

...

There were already reports by then of potential suicide hijackings. But even in the absence of those reports, it would have been cheap and simple to harden cockpits and to give pilots a few simple weapons for self-defense, such as Tasers as well as guns.

In recent years there have been many new laws and regulations concerning conceal carrying of guns in this country. Currently, there are only two states in which conceal carry is completely restricted, Illinois and Wisconsin. I believe these restrictions are unconstitutional.

In 1915, Barcia’s great-grandparents, Frank and Hannah Cady were beheaded by an angry neighbor over a dispute involving the Cadys’ horses. One of the Cadys’ children also was killed in the attack, Barcia said, adding another child — who would become his grandmother — hid under the stairs and avoided death.

“When people say, ‘why are you such a strong advocate of the Second Amendment?’ I say, ‘you just never know.’”

Barcia urged for a law in Michigan called the Castle Doctrine, which would have allowed homeowners the ability to use force to protect their property. The measure was approved by the House but failed in the Senate.

Bustamante and witnesses said Ralston got upset after Bustamante made a right turn, passed Bustamante and then stopped his own vehicle in the middle of the road.

Ralston then approached Bustamante's truck and punched him several times through the open window, prompting Bustamante to shoot Ralston with a .40-caliber handgun, according to the Sheriff's Office.

...

The initial investigation indicates that Bustamante was acting in self-defense, according to the Sheriff's Office. Ralston may face charges in the incident.

Montana’s Congressman, Denny Rehberg, today released the following statement critical of a proposed “emergency rule” by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to require federally licensed firearms retailers to report multiple sales of semi-automatic rifles.

The proposed rule was included in a recent Federal Register and specifically calls for firearm retailers to report multiple sales, or other dispositions, of two or more .22 caliber or larger semi-automatic rifles that are capable of accepting a detachable magazine and are purchased by the same individual within five consecutive business days.

As Wasilla’s mayor works to make good on a campaign promise to build an outdoor gun range within the city, a property owner near the site wonders what happened to the city’s promise to him years ago to build ball fields in exchange for a utility easement needed for the Menard sports complex.

“If I’d known they were going to put a firing range there, I never in a million years would have given them access to my property,” Brad Laybourn said after spending all day Friday at appeal hearings in hopes of stopping the construction of an 18-lane shooting range next to the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is moving to require federally licensed firearms retailers to report multiple sales of modern sporting rifles beginning January 5, 2011.

Specifically, the ATF requirement calls for firearms retailers to report multiple sales, or other dispositions, of two or more .22 caliber or larger semi-automatic rifles that are capable of accepting a detachable magazine and are purchased by the same individual within five consecutive business days.

The Washington Post suggests that the reporting mandate would be limited to retailers along the Southwest border; however, the Federal Register Notice does not limit the geographic scope of the reporting requirement.

Amtrak recently lifted its post-9/11 ban on packing unloaded firearms in checked luggage on its trains. But unless checked baggage service is added to the only Amtrak run in Oklahoma, the change won’t apply here.

Amtrak was required to lift the ban because of a measure added to an appropriations bill in the U.S. Senate in December 2009.

A 2009 report to Congress by the US Government Accountability Office reports that more than 90% of the "firearms seized in Mexico and traced over the past three years came from the United States".

Approximately 40% of these originated in Texas.

When Demari DeReu was suspended from Columbia Falls High School for inadvertently bringing an unloaded hunting rifle to school, her case attracted national attention. Her expulsion hearing Monday drew a crowd of about 150 people.

But DeReu’s is not the first gun-related expulsion hearing trustees in Flathead County have conducted. The Columbia Falls board has heard five cases in the last three years, just a handful of the infractions schools have faced in recent years.

In the last three years, Montana schools have reported 79 violations involving shotguns, rifles, handguns or other firearms, according to the state Office of Public Instruction.

Don’t give toy guns as gifts this Christmas, an official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) exhorted the public on Sunday.

CBCP Media Office director Msgr. Pedro Quitorio III said toy guns work against the Christmas message of harmony and peace.

Msgr. Quitorio said gifts should be anything that will represent peace and salvation. He said it is better if parents and godparents will give the children gifts that they can use in school.

A U.S. customs agent from Stockbridge and his wife, a Delta employee, have been charged with helping funnel guns and drug money through Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, federal officials said Thursday.

They were arrested along with 12 others after parallel investigations also turned up $2.8 million worth of Ecstasy --- about 700,000 tabs of the amphetamine-like drug --- stored at a residence in Chamblee.
