"Socially-screened" investment portfolios -- those that bar investments in gun companies and those that make alcohol, tobacco, and other "sin" products, are increasingly popular.

According to a report by the "Social Investment Forum", companies that make weapons are the second most widely banned product in screened portfolios.

(Of course, they could also be skewing their data, we don't know.)

"Ashcroft has crafted a rule that will undermine the integrity of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) by eliminating the time needed by law enforcement to audit the system to ensure that it is not being abused."

-and-

"Legislation supported in the U.S. Senate by NRA Board Member Larry Craig (R,ID) and sponsored in the House by former NRA Board Member John Dingell (D,MI) would have limited the time to complete problematic background checks to 24 hours."

Feds selling "secret coin-knife"

Despite new measures to "secure the safety of commercial air travel", an agency of the federal government continues to sell an "easily concealable, fake silver dollar that includes a double-bladed hidden knife." Offered by the U.S. Mint and available via the Internet, it "can likely slip past an airport metal detector when concealed with other coins in a coin purse."

KABA NOTE: Great! Let's all get one before their supplies run out. Even if you aren't travelling by air, it looks like a handy gadget.

The NRA and other opponents say additional background checks are unnecessary and accuse supporters of shamelessly exploiting the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

DeWine and McCain said they plan to force a vote on the current version by attaching their bill to "the first appropriate, amendable vehicle" - possibly homeland security legislation - when the Senate reconvenes in January.

In July, the DOJ reported that since the Brady Law went into effect 2/94, background checks have kept 689,000 "criminals and other prohibited purchasers" from buying guns from licensed dealers. Two-thirds (458,000) of those were "convicted felons or fugitives from the law".

"The decline in gun deaths is proof that gun control laws work... We don't know exactly how many lives have been saved or how many crimes were prevented because these felons couldn't get a handgun," said Mrs. Brady.

We all know the sad crime state down under, especially in the time which has elapsed since the government successfully disarmed the public.

This is a story of the increase in weapons seizures in the emergency rooms; of their metal detectors; their 'new breed' of violent drug abuser; their threatened and frightened medical staff.

...And the ongoing political wrangling to commit millions to "improve hospital security."

Detectives said Titus White entered the home carrying a handgun, with a second man who was armed with a shotgun and wearing a ski mask. The shotgun-toter forced the three relatives who lived there -- a 54-year-old man and two teen-agers -- into a den. White, meanwhile, went upstairs, and the second gunman followed. A shot was heard, and then the unidentified gunman dragged White's body down the stairs, dropped him in the street and fled.

Ex-Reporter Bernard Goldberg Accuses CBS of Bias

In his forthcoming book, "Bias," published by Regnery Publishing, Goldberg unloads on his ex-employer.

CBS News President Andrew Heyward once told him, "of course there's a liberal bias in the news. All the networks tilt left... If you repeat any of this, I'll deny it."

He says he wrote the book because he cares about journalism... Goldberg became something of a pariah at CBS after accusing the network of liberal bias in a 1996 op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal.

Sabina Gonzales presented her case to a School District administrator and 2 principals during a closed meeting. She wants her son's 1-day suspension removed from his permanent record.

PTA President Yafa Ifrah said, "The parents support zero tolerance for weapons because children can start out with toy guns and before you know it, it escalates to real guns. You have to put it in their heads at a young age that guns are bad [or] you will have a hard time controlling them later."
