Under a law that came into force last month, American pilots will be allowed to carry firearms in the cockpit on a voluntary basis...

But Mr. Collenette says that there are "cultural differences" between the U.S. and Canada over guns and says he stands "totally opposed" to putting pistols in pilots' hands." ...

WASHINGTON - "The FBI's new orders sounded simple: At a time of national crisis, re-focus on counterterrorism activities rather than the bread-and-butter crime-busting it has done for years."

"That has proved easier said than done, and with patience running short on Capitol Hill and in the Bush Administration, the FBI finds itself fighting for credibility in the nation's capital as the bureau struggles to turn its mission toward combating terror."

"Congressional critics say the agency, beset by turf wars and a clannish mentality, is not moving fast enough."

"FBI supporters reply that it takes time to undertake such a substantial shift. They point to several steps embattled Director Robert Mueller has taken to help speed the adjustment to fight terrorism activities." ...

WHILE THEY ARE UPDATING...

Perhaps they can find the traitor(s) who said "defenders of the US Constitution" are terrorist suspects and ship him/them off to China, where their ideologies would fit in quite nicely.

“The Auditor General has done another huge service for Canadian taxpayers today and in the process she blew a big hole in the government’s credibility,” said Breitkreuz, the Official Opposition Critic for Firearms and Property Rights. “The Auditor General confirmed what we have been reporting for years: that the gun registry is going to cost more than a billion dollars. She even told us that the Liberals have also known this fact for two years and knowingly withheld this information from Parliament. I hope citizens hold the Liberals accountable for their cover-up.”

JONESBORO — A Washington County sheriff’s deputy is calling for Maine to better equip the state’s animal welfare program after a humane agent was forced to use a handgun to shoot seven dogs following the death of their owner. Sgt. Donnie Smith said the dogs were attacking each other and had to be euthanized, but that district Humane Agent Steve Ewer was left with no options after an East Machias veterinarian was unable to enter their 40-by-40-foot pen and administer a lethal injection. The dogs turned on each other after having a negative reaction to a sedative that was supposed to calm them so that Dr. David Cobb could inject them, Smith said. With Cobb unable to enter the pen and no access to a tranquilizer gun, Ewer shot the dogs with a .45-caliber handgun, the deputy said. “It took a good half hour and Steve was visibly shaken and leaning up against a tree,” Smith said Tuesday.

"Gun licences not required: Disproportionately high number of aboriginals involved in homicides"

OTTAWA - "The federal government is handing out free ammunition on First Nation reserves even though the aboriginal rate of involvement in homicide is seven times higher than the national average, documents show."

"Indian Affairs records show the department distributed more than 4,000 rounds of rifle and shotgun ammunition to four First Nation reserves in northern British Columbia and Alberta this year and more than 3,000 rounds of ammunition the previous year to bands in Manitoba." ...

BIG DEAL...

One dedicated shooter can go through that much ammo in a month, easily. This is an anti-gun hit piece written for shock value and catering to gun-ignorant people who actually think 3,000 rounds of ammo is a big deal. In truth, smart gun owners who can afford it have at least that much ammo -- for every major rifle and pistol caliber they own.

"Hastings Division of Yellow Brick Enterprises in Clay Center is producing a new shotgun extension system that can reduce noise by 50 percent when used with the right ammunition.

"Known as the 'Metro' extension, the system was developed by outdoor writer L.P.Brenzy more than 10 years ago.

"The Hastings Metro extension is installed by threading the existing choke out of a shotgun and installing the extension into the existing choke system. Once the extension is fitted tight, the original choke tube is installed in the muzzle and the system is complete.

"The system virtually reduces muzzle blast and flash because of the complete powder burn. It also greatly reduces recoil.

"These characteristics make the system desirable for beginning shooters who don't want the noise and don't want to develop a flinch in anticipation of the recoil." ...

FAIR HAVEN -- "Three dump trucks removed an arsenal of live ammunition and almost 500 weapons -- all of them apparently held legally -- which police found in a home after the fire department responded to a chimney fire and the homeowner threatened the fire chief with a rifle, authorities said yesterday."

The "tens of thousands" of rounds of live ammunition could have had a catastrophic effect if Sunday's fire had grown worse, a police official said.

"When Fire Chief John Feeny ordered Arthur L. Arford to leave his smoky home in a residential area of Colonial Court about 4 p.m. to make way for firefighters, Arford told Feeny the department had no right to force him off his property, said Detective Joseph McGovern."

"Arford, a 59-year-old budget analyst at Fort Monmouth, then grabbed an unloaded M-1 rifle that was leaning against his bookshelf and attempted to point it at the chief, McGovern said." ...

"Arford, a civilian Army employee, was arrested by Patrolman John Lehnert and charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, police said. Arford was being held yesterday at the Monmouth County Jail on $10,000 bail." ...

"The State Police Bomb Unit was called to ensure that hand grenades found on the property were not live, which they were not, said McGovern. He said experts from the state police examined the cache of weapons -- bayonets, double-barrel shotguns, pump shotguns with pistol grips -- and did not find any that were illegal."

"As far as could be determined, Arford's permits for the weapons appeared to be in order and the guns were purchased legally..."

"...authorities will keep the weapons until the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office determines what to do with them. If convicted of a felony, Arford could potentially lose the right to keep the weapons, police said." ...
