Bernie Madoff's son is gunning for a pistol permit. Andrew Madoff, 43, applied for a license to keep a handgun in his swanky Upper East Side pad more than six months ago -- and his name appears on NYPD and state police lists of approved permit holders. This despite Andrew's allegedly punching out a former employee on the street and going through an ugly divorce.

Here is the cold hard fact of the matter that will be evaded and denied but which must never be forgotten in these discussions: Often — whether on an airplane, subway, cruise ship, or in a high school — only self defense by the “unorganized militia” will be available when domestic or foreign terrorists chose their next moment of murder. And here is the public-policy implication of this fact: It would be better if the militia were more prepared to act when it is needed.

"The truth is, many in the public will remain terrified of seeing someone armed who is not wearing a uniform. It does not matter if you are nicely dressed or if your gun is more conventional-looking--whatever that means. In much of the Republic, hoplophobia runs strong. That you have a gun and are not a cop is enough for some."

Still in uniform: WV police rarely lose certification

West Virginia is not alone in its problem with police officers moving from department to department after getting into trouble, said Samuel Walker, professor emeritus of criminal justice at the University of Omaha and an expert on police accountability.

"It is believed to be a problem nationwide," he said. "The phrase 'gypsy cops' has come up. There's not any solid research on that. We don't know how common it is."

Some states have begun aggressively decertifying officers, he said.

Since 2006, Florida has decertified 178 officers, about 1 in 280 police officers in the state. The seven West Virginia has decertified in roughly the same time period is about 1 in 500 of the state's 3,500 police officers.

Police say that the husband and wife who own the fireworks stand were preparing to close for the day when the wife noticed a young man acting suspiciously. The wife reportedly notified her husband, at which point he got his gun and kept it ready. At closing time, the suspicious young man and two accomplices drew their handguns as part of a robbery attempt, police say. The fireworks stand owner reportedly then drew and fired his own gun in self defense, ending the violent robbery.

"The victim stated he watched the suspect open the door to his garage and go inside," the report states. "The victim then stated that he went inside the garage to confront the suspect. The victim then pointed a pistol at the suspect, who was standing between two vehicles. The victim stated he asked the suspect what he was doing and the suspect stated he was looking for oil for his truck. The victim stated he led the suspect out of the garage and then grabbed the suspect by the arm....the suspect jerked away and the victim hit him in the side of the head with the pistol."

The lesson here is the same as Flight 93 on 9/11 and shoe-bomber Richard Reid, which is that civilians willing to act in their own self-defense are a crucial part of "homeland security." The willingness of passengers and crew to identify potential threats seems more useful than more onerous airport screening, which only gives terrorists the satisfaction of knowing they have made air travel even more unbearable. The new rule to keep passengers in their seats in the final hour of some flights seems all too typical of arbitrary rules that inconvenience innocents but not terrorists.

The city of Sacramento regulates handguns and ammunition, and the City Council is willing to go to court to continue that role.

It voted recently to join other cities arguing in support of the city of Chicago, whose gun control ordinance is under review by the U.S. Supreme Court.

On March 2, the court will hear oral arguments in the case of McDonald v. Chicago, a case sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation and the Illinois State Rifle Association.

From several seats away, Dutch tourist Jasper Schuringa says he jumped to extinguish a fire ignited by a quiet man who just moments before allegedly told passengers his stomach was upset and pulled a blanket over himself. Schuringa said his first thought wasn't to signal a flight attendant or wait for an air marshal to break cover, but rather, "He's trying to blow up the plane."

"I basically reacted directly," Schuringa said Saturday in an interview with CNN. "I didn't think. I just jumped. I just went over there and tried to save the plane."

Aviation safety experts once would have called Schuringa's actions a mistake and cautioned passengers against fighting back during hijackings and other crises in the air.

If you're in the system - you have a criminal record or you've been found mentally incompetent - you can't legally buy a gun. If you try, you'll be flagged during the background check and denied.

Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., is pushing a Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act. The measure, which got a unanimous thumbs-up from the Veterans Affairs Committee and awaits action by the full Senate, would block the VA from reporting veterans to the background check system based on the agency's own evaluation. A court would have to rule that a veteran is incompetent.

I AM a math teacher at Brockton High School, the site of a school shooting earlier this month.

Current school security procedures lock down school populations in the event of armed assault. Some advocate abandoning this practice as it holds everyone in place, allowing a shooter easily to find victims.

An alternative to lockdown is immediate exodus via announcement. Although this removes potential hostages and makes it nearly impossible for the shooter to acquire preselected targets, it unfairly rewards resourceful children who move to safety off-site more shrewdly and efficiently than others.

Extrava-gun-za

For the second year in a row the state of South Carolina has sponsored a Second Amendment Weekend—popularly called "the extrava-gun-za." For two days over the Thanksgiving weekend shoppers can buy handguns, rifles and shotguns—but not ammunition and accessories—without paying the state's 9 percent sales tax. If the sponsors of this gun-tax break have their way, the annual tax-free weekend for gun purchases will become permanent.

It could be argued that this is just the quirky practice of a small, conservative, gun-loving state. But gun sales have consequences: South Carolina is among the five states that are the source of 85 percent of the illegal handguns recovered in New York City.
 

FL: Does law excuse murder?

No one disputes that Maurice Moorer fired more than a dozen bullets to kill a rival sitting in a car in West Little River last year.

Moorer claimed self-defense. Police detectives begged to differ.

But prosecutors say they were forced to drop a murder charge against Moorer because of the controversial 2005 ``Stand Your Ground' self-defense law that broadened a citizen's ability to use deadly force.

``There is no law now that we can point to say Moorer should have backed off, that he should have avoided this,' said Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney Kathleen Hoague, who says the new law ``cheapens human life.'

Being on an airliner or a train is pretty much the opposite, especially at the end of a long trip. On a long transatlantic flight -- even in business class -- all you want to do is get off the doggone plane, get through customs and home to that waiting hot shower. You’re not thinking about someone seated a few rows in front of you who has a bomb concealed in his underwear.

That’s not your problem, right? They screen everyone, the highly-trained Federal Air Marshals are on board -- undercover -- and ready to spring into action.
