"The shift from personal autonomy to dependence on government is perhaps the defining characteristic of modern American politics. In the span of barely one lifetime, a nation grounded in ideals of individual liberty has been transformed into one in which federal decisions control even such personal matters as what health care we buy..."

The fact that one should be allowed to defend himself simply excludes that government disarm him. We have talked of this, and much more, with Jeff Snyder, whose last book, Nation of Cowards (Accurate Press, 2001) is a strong case in defence of the individual right to keep and bear arms.

So-called "smart gun" technology is supposed to make firearms safer, but a dozen protesters who gathered Wednesday on Cedar Lane said it would make it harder for law-abiding citizens to use guns in self-defense.

They demonstrated outside the office of Assemblywoman Loretta Weinberg (D-Teaneck) saying that her bill to require smart guns was actually a "rapists' protection bill," because it would deter women from carrying guns to protect themselves.

The Wake County Sheriff's Office has discarded a long-standing policy requiring a person who wants a handgun permit to bring in a character witness when applying. The tradition, which dates back more than 30 years, has been eliminated as the permit process was delayed and more people sought permits following Sept. 11.

"If you have a gun...leave it at home."

That's the "message" Denton County commissioners want to send to county employees and residents after adopting a "workplace violence policy." The guidelines, approved this week, make employees "responsible for recognizing and preventing violent situations" in county offices regardless of whether the "threat" comes from co-workers or people who walk in.

KABA NOTE: Having a gun is not a threat. Do they want employees to report people with screwdrivers in their pockets?

A Federal Air Marshal who passed through a "security checkpoint" at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport without being "properly screened" flew to Atlanta.

The "security breach" prompted the Federal Aviation Administration to temporarily shut down Terminal E so law enforcement officers could perform a "security sweep." Several flights were delayed.

"They did find out he was actually an air marshal and he was on a flight to Atlanta," FAA spokesman John Clabes said.

SC: 'Surtax on guns would provide better control'
Submitted by: Newslinks Director

"It is unfair to tax every American to pay for this program because (according to the Census Bureau) the majority of Americans don't own any handguns. And criminals ultimately get their guns from law-abiding gun owners, either through well-meaning private sales or by theft. Any person who has had his home or car broken into and found later that a gun was taken has, by definition, supplied a criminal with a gun."
 

SC: Officer who left gun in store bathroom 'may be disciplined'

A Spartanburg police officer who accidentally left his gun in a convenience store bathroom last week, only to have it taken by a civilian, "could face disciplinary action." Police administrators...could issue anything from a "letter of reprimand" to a "three-day suspension," said Tony Fisher, director of the Public Safety Department.

KABA NOTE: Perhaps the state should tax police for the firearms they loose to pay for the new "gun crime prosecutors" instead of lawful citizens.

While federal law requires that all principals report firearms, he said several did not because they were trying to keep their numbers "artificially low."

In an effort to increase security, the school system, which says it has a zero-tolerance policy on weapons, spent approximately $8 million during the past four years to install metal detectors, X-ray machines, cameras and security guards in schools.

-- What a waste of money! Arm the teachers and the crime will lower.

"Thank you Congress and Mr. Bush. All schools are now de facto federalized under UN mandates. Is it too late to get into your School Boards face and demand why the property-tax payers were sold out for federal funds [grants, handouts] used as blackmail to subvert their children? How many state legislatures and governors have remained silent all the while violating their Oaths of Office? When will enough people wake up and put a stop to this mendacity and usurpation?"

Gov. Jim Hodges vowed Friday to "veto any legislation that allows concealed weapons into schools or onto school grounds."

The House bill, sponsored by Rep. Jake Knotts would allow people with a CWP to possess a firearm on school grounds, but not inside a school. The Senate bill, sponsored by Sen. Glenn Reese, allows permit-holders to carry weapons into schools.
