Former Security Chief of FAA calls for arming pilots in the cockpit now and gives an insider’s perspective to the politics behind the debate and the danger in not taking action now.

In a riveting interview on NRALIVE, Billie Vincent says:

"This ludicrous process of comment on stun guns vs. handguns, there’s no question stun guns are inadequate. We shouldn’t be debating guns and pilots now. We need to do it now."

Airline Security - We're not serious. Take A Train.

"Aviation Week for February 18 says that a Great Debate – “furious, behind-the-scenes” – rages over whether pilots of airliners should carry weapons. Granted, debate in Washington intellectually parallels professional wrestling, but without the dignity. Still:

Did we not just lose four aircraft, several thousand people, two and a quarter buildings, and get ourselves into an open-ended string of wars, and begin to turn ourselves into an officious security state, at a cost of many, many billions of dollars -- because pilots did not have guns?" - Fred Reed

"It was about what anyone could expect when they make an enemy of the gun nuts, a fanatical lobby capable of launching a fierce counterattack at even the slightest dis of their sacred "sport."

This time, they weren't calling in to complain and kvetch about one of my "anti-gun" columns. They'd scored what they believed to be an undeniable victory, a double-slam dunk of public relations that they thought had proved their point once and for all." --by Mike Seate, Pittsburgh TRIBUNE-REVIEW columnist

KABA NOTE: Pathetic. How sad.

Ashcroft’s Unconstitutional Problem - This is “cleaning up” Washington?
Submitted by: Newslinks Director

Here's another snapshot of Washington working to reassure the American people that politics is a clean, above-board business: Attorney General John Ashcroft will soon be defending a law that he clearly thinks is unconstitutional.

The calculation of the White House is that it is easier to sign Shays-Meehan/McCain-Feingold than to veto it, or even — amazingly enough — to ask the Senate to change the constitutionally dubious parts.

"The Founders of the United States said that the people are ultimately responsible for policing the police. When the Republic was founded, police generally understood that the police derived their authority from the citizenry. The people had a responsibility to protect themselves, but they usually would delegate this responsibility to an elected sheriff..." - Larry Pratt, GOA
 

CO: Concealed Carry bill advancing

"The House State Affairs Committee passed Rep. Dave Schultheis’ HB1242 on Valentine's Day, the good concealed carry permit bill, by a party line vote of 5-4 (all the committee’s Republicans supported the bill, while all the Democrats opposed it)."

"Much to the dismay of the institutional gun lobby (which has studiously ignored the better concealed carry bill, so as not to appear too “pro-gun”) but not to RMGO, Sen. Ken Chlouber’s SB60 died in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday."

Canada: Debunking the gun control myth
Submitted by: Doug Charette

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"The treacherous attack on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11 opened our eyes. Canadians now realize that our government can't protect us. The government's efforts to control violence have been badly misdirected. It was not wise to freeze the RCMP budget for a decade, slash CSIS, let violent criminals roam around on probation, and eliminate the Vancouver port police. To create a massive bureaucracy to register the guns of ordinary Canadian citizens."

McDonald lives at the Cheek Road Apartments complex and witnessed what she called excessive force by police last weekend.

BATF Interpretation Puts Canadian Gun Owners Through Hoops

Previously, Canadian nationals needed only show their hunting license, gun permit, or event program to transport a rifle or shotgun into the U.S. for hunting, competitions, or shows.

Now they must complete ATF Form 6, the "Application for Importation of Firearms, Ammunition, and Implements of War," for each planned entry into the U.S. with a firearm or ammunition.

KABA NOTE: To find out why we changed the Headline from 'ATF' to 'BATF', read BATF - Bureau of Applied Terror and Fraud by Ed Lewis.

OH: Pro-Gun Plan Would Trump Local Gun Laws
Submitted by: Anonymous

Some legislators say a patchwork quilt of local laws that ban different types of guns from one community to another are confusing and should be eliminated.

They back a bill that would make Ohio the 43rd state to override local gun control ordinances and make it legal to own, possess, buy, transport or sell guns or ammunition.

If the bill succeeds, the uniform law would reverse Cincinnati's ban on semiautomatic weapons.

The Moore County sheriff’s deputy who shot a Fort Bragg soldier to death and injured another on Saturday did not know the soldiers were part of a role-playing Special Forces exercise, said Lane Carter, chief deputy of the Moore County Sheriff’s Department.

‘‘They attacked the deputy with everything they had, and he responded accordingly,’’ Carter said. ‘‘One was trying to get the deputy’s weapon. The other was pulling a weapon out of a bag. They ended up getting shot over it.’’

VT: House would give police more power to make arrests

The Vermont House has given preliminary approval to a bill that would broaden police authority to make arrests.

Supporters said the current rules were too complicated, making it difficult for police to do their jobs. 'What we have heard from the law enforcement community,' Rep. Michael Kainen, R-Hartford, explained, 'is that it is very difficult on the scene to decide whether to arrest or not.'

"Think back to the last time you read this headline: "Athlete uses gun to ward off attacker."

Or this one: "Athlete uses gun to thwart robbery."

Or this one: "Athlete uses gun to save woman from street gang."

Let me help you out: You can't. You've never ever read of an athlete doing anything good with a gun.

Which is why it boggles the mind that the allure of carrying a deadly weapon captivates so many professional athletes." - Mike Bianchi, Orlando Sentinel
 

GA: BB gun law indicative of growing culture clash

Once an icon of Rockwellian America, the lone boy toting a Daisy BB gun as he wanders the woods has a new reputation - that of an outlaw.

In the boldest of a growing ledger of laws across the country aimed at grade-school "gunslingers," a new ordinance here makes it a crime to let children under 16 use a BB gun - or its modern cousin, the paintball gun - without parental supervision.

KABA NOTE: The letter seems to have disappeared from their website.

"As manufacturers and sellers of products designed to kill... as the suppliers of artificial power that appeals to the mentally ill, paranoid and socially immature... the gun industry and its supporters perpetuate a culture of paranoia and distrust through obfuscation... Welcome to the legacy that an unregulated gun industry has left our children." -- by BILL JENKINS, university professor, activist, and "father of a victim of gun violence"

-- Sad how grief oftentimes destroys the ability to reason.

KABA NOTE: He is the father of a victim of human criminal activity. The gun was just the tool used in this particular case.

Any officer engaged in cooking the books to pump up force structure is more than just a liar and fraud. They may not want to recognize it, but they are domestic enemies and constitute a significant threat to our national security. Any soldier who has knowledge of fraud of this nature and does not expose it is not being a good troop and loyal to command, they are co-conspirators. Any soldier regardless of rank, race, creed or political affiliation has a responsibility and a duty to report fraud.
 

Gun Grabbers Target Your Doctor

The once-respected American Medical Association wants your doctor to butt into your constitutional right to own firearms.

Although only an embarrassingly low 32% of American physicians are members of AMA, the organization claims to speak for all doctors.

If your doctor is among the majority of physicians who are not AMA members, perhaps he could give you a laundry list of reasons for a refusal to participate. They could range from nonsense bureaucracy to politics.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that... it is their right and duty to be at all times armed;... — Thomas Jefferson to Justice John Cartwright, 1824. ME 16:45.
