Supporters see it enhancing safety, but critics worry about bullets piercing the fuselage.

When an agitated passenger kicked in the cockpit door on a United Airlines flight to Buenos Aires earlier this month, the incident reignited an emotional debate: Should pilots be armed?

Has the NRA abandoned California?

The last two gun shows I attended I heard someone outside the gate yelling, "Join the so-and-so gun rights group and get into the gun show free. The NRA has abandoned California."

Huh? The NRA abandoned California? When did that happen? Did LaPierre make some kind of announcement that I missed somewhere?

Look, I'm no apologist for the NRA, but sometimes you just got to set the record straight. The NRA hasn't abandoned California.

Maine experienced its most violent spate of gun-related crimes in recent memory last week, leaving two men dead and a teen-age boy critically injured.

Safety advocates say the "violence shows that Maine needs more gun regulation and public education."

But some gun enthusiasts and law enforcement officers question the usefulness of more laws, noting that two of the three incidents involved stolen guns.

GA: It's not nice to anger pro-gun lobby (followup)

Monday in the Senate, the governor's bioterrorism bill was brought back for a pro-gun amendment by Sen. Phil Gingrey (R-Marietta).

The NRA and other big gun groups took no position on the amendment, but local Second Amendment activists were in the halls and active on the phones and Internet.

This is an election year, and no one, Democrat or Republican, was taking any chances on a gun vote. The amendment passed, 40-2.

KABA NOTE: AH-HA! So we (pro-gun voters) CAN make a difference when we work at it!

Members of the Georgetown Fish & Game Association have been gathering at the rustic clubhouse at the end of Lake Avenue more than ever lately, but the meetings come and go without a single shot being fired at the club's shooting range. Pistols are holstered and rifles left on gun racks, and instead, zoning maps are spread across battered wooden tables...

"Just last week Palatine Mayor Rita Mullins had no plans to license gun dealers. So she said. I guess that was an expedient lie for her to hand out when we put her under the gun at her Village Board meeting last week.

You see, after telling us she had no plans to license gun owners, the Mayor has announced: Surprise! The village already has the power to license gun dealers..."

A hostage-taker brandishing a fake gun was overpowered by the victim he tried to use as a shield to hold off police after a botched bank robbery in North York yesterday.

A bandit took three women hostages in a drama that began with an 8:30 a.m. attempted heist at the CIBC branch on Finch Ave. at Weston Rd. The women were overpowered by a man who had broken into the bank through a window.

As comprehensive campaign finance reform nears its expected enactment, House Democratic lawmakers have already adopted strategies for redirecting the flow of large contributions to outside groups aligned with their party, a move they hope will help them regain control of the Chamber.

House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt (D-MO) has assured that he will raise money for groups such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the Southwest Voter Project.

“It’s disgusting they’re crying for reform when they’re already cutting deals with tax-exempt organizations like the NAACP” that play politics.
 

MN: Concealed Carry Study - Unequal Protection

MN has may issue concealed carry. What this report shows is that out-state, non metro police will issue permits and that Metro/City chiefs WILL NOT. The study does not directly report permits GRANTED for Personal protection or Occupation. The study does however show VAST difference in application and permit grants for metro vs not metro. This is only the tip of the iceberg..

"It seems to me that H&R Block deserves a shot at your tax preparation business this year. If you plan on remaining in the state of low level slavery, consider H&R Block. If you are not into Turbo Tax and doing it yourself, consider H&R Block. If you do not have any special allegiance to some other tax preparer, consider H&R Block. If you support the Second Amendment, even if you are not an NRA member, consider H&R Block..." - Ed Cobb

UK: Shotgun advertisement attacked

An ad with similarities to the case of farmer Tony Martin, who is serving a prison sentence after shooting two burglars, has been criticised by the industry watchdog.

The ad, for a security system, showed a farmer holding a shotgun. The drawing has the farmer smiling and giving a thumbs-up sign with the shotgun still smoking and cartridges in mid-ejection.

A person who complained said it was "irresponsible" because it "condoned the use of a shotgun to protect private property".

An Apology: "In my Feb. 12 update, in a section promoting passage of the Georgia Sport Shooting Association State Director Bylaw I wrote:

'The NRA Board has put a gag on members trying to influence NRA Board elections and Bylaw changes... the Board unanimously approved elimination of the special 'at-cost' ads for internal elections -- more than trebling the cost of a full-page ad from about $18K to more than $60K.'

That's not correct. But it's a misunderstanding, not a lie..."

Sen. Jon Cauthorn, R-Mexico, is one of the bill’s sponsors.

“Jon made the promise when he ran for Senate that he would protect the Second Amendment,” Jerry Dowell, Cauthorn’s chief of staff, said. “This bill allows Missourians their rights to protect themselves.”

Gov. Bob Holden has said that he will veto the bill if it passes.

Soon, the Jacobs will become the first family ever implanted with a new identification device -- no bigger than a grain of rice -- called the VeriChip. The VeriChip is similar to a MedicAlert bracelet, but instead of being worn on the wrist, it is implanted under the skin. It was created by Applied Digital Solutions, a technology development company based in Palm Beach, Florida.

The newest way to deny you your Second Amemdment rights: require that a particular form be filled out for each and every gun sale, then don't send that form to dealers!

No joke--the BATF made very minor changes to Form 4473, then FAILED to get the new forms to dealers by the deadline ... So now the government can make a rule, make it impossible to obey the rule, and not be held accountable!

We are under martial law even without the ominous appearance of US military people on every street corner. Here are some interesting facts taken from the Justice Policy Institute..."

The "Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002," was passed in the House on February 14, 2002, by a vote of 240-189. The bill is a rather draconian version of campaign finance "reform," including not just limits on what people can donate to candidates and parties, but also tight restrictions on independent political advertisements within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary election.

The Barber lawsuit, like the Hester suit, claims Remington failed to properly warn consumers, produced a gun of negligent design and manufacture and failed to recall or retrofit the gun.

It also accuses Remington of destroying "incriminating evidence," like customer complaints, gun examination reports and internal memoranda, "with the full knowledge of past, pending and future claims regarding he Remington Model 700," according to the suit.

South Africa: 'Strife-torn communities favour gun control'

"Main reason cited for the increase in number of firearms was the level of accessibility."

"3 communities in which the 'use of guns is rife' have come out in favour of gun control and said they would like to live in communities without firearms."

"The findings of the institute's project, known as the arms management programme, coincided with a police workshop yesterday, set up to teach communication officers aspects of effective firearms control and safety as required by law."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. — James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
