Witnessed an act of courage in a Public Safety Committee hearing on Senate Bill 121 (which proposes to eliminate the present requirements for training of concealed weapon permit applicants). Clark Aposhian, a long-time gun rights advocate, broke ranks with those who oppose all gun restrictions. He asked the senators to reject the proposed bill and to retain the requirement for training. He's now paying the price in the form of hate and vicious phone calls.

The Bush administration's approach to airport security came under heavy bombardment yesterday from conservative critics.

Speakers at the 29th annual Conservative Action Political Conference in Arlington made it clear that their affection for the administration is tempered by concern for personal freedoms and what they called pointless intrusions on privacy.

The Interlake Sporting Association will have to get better control of its shooting range before the county allows the club to reopen.

The King County Sheriff's Office recently concluded that Interlake should change the way it oversees shooters before it gets its license back.

Interlake, located at 13633 N.E. 97th St., has been closed since September, when an errant bullet left the range and landed about 3 feet from an employee at a nearby business.

A 6-month-old ban on recreational shooting in portions of the Tonto National Forest has drawn praise from forest officials, but many residents who live near forest boundaries feel the restrictions don't go far enough.

They want to ban hunters as well as those who shoot for fun.

In August, about 80,000 of Tonto's 2.9 million acres were closed to recreational shooters.

City and county leaders from across the Metroplex are about to embark on a planning process that should help organize relief efforts. The goal is to make sure that municipalities coordinate during a disaster.

"It's not going to be one government that responds. It's going to be a collaboration of governments," said G.K. Maenius. Resources include hospitals and police and fire departments...

-- only govt. response, no individuals??

Helping people have a better quality of life "one person, one block, one neighborhood, one suburb" at a time is the goal of the Oklahoma Regional Community Policing Institute.

...the classes help everyday people take control of their lives and safety, instead of waiting for "the guy with the badge or the big suit to swoop down and save us. ...How we're going to beat our problems is by each person taking responsibility." --Jody Collier

-- Self-defense is not mentioned, let alone guns.
 

The Fort White House

This is not KABA-related, but please read through for the sake of the arguments used, especially the "time-consuming hassle for law-abiding Americans" (that was my favorite) and the "nonexistent threat statistically". One could replace "access to the White House" with "access to firearms" and use the identical arguments. Typical hypocrisy from The Washington (Com)Post.

I'm going to do a search on the author's name and "gun control", to see what I can find. I'll let you all know.

The McCain-Feingold/Shays-Meehan campaign finance "reform" bills (S.27 and H.R. 2356, respectively) are poised for action in the very near future.

And this week, House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-TX) indicated that the bill would be brought up for consideration by the full House very soon.

Heads up, future cyborgs! Implantable chips are back in the news, with the current focus on a tiny chip that can be injected into your body, then used to identify and monitor you.

Media reports are calling it "the stuff of science fiction," and Reuters likened it to something from the 1999 blockbuster film, "The Matrix."

Due to "legal ramifications," the civil disobedience trial of U.S. Senate candidate Rick Stanley in Denver, Colorado has been postponed to March 5.

Stanley, arrested and charged with violating a local anti-gun ordinance at a Bill of Rights Day rally, said his lawyer requested the postponement. More time was needed to file a "severance motion" between him and Duncan Philip who had been arrested on the same charge. The Denver District Attorney's office is pushing to try the two men together.

Afghanistan: Problems with your gun? Young brothers can help

Most of the guns are older than the boys.

But those in need of an AK-47 repair don't seem to mind that the oldest gunsmith in the shop doesn't yet shave and the most junior partner still has his baby teeth.

Warlords, militiamen and average gun-toting Afghans keep business brisk for the four young brothers, who are expanding their reputation as the place to turn for repairing or rebuilding the AK-47 semiautomatic rifle that is the cornerstone of the Afghan arsenal.

-- I wonder if having a gun handy could have been of use here?

"A woman called police after Roache, a former boyfriend, allegedly broke into the home of her current boyfriend...Roache cut Shannon several times with the machete, then beheaded him. Neighbors watched as Roache put the head on the car hood, then tried to arrange a rearview mirror in front of the decapitated head...so the head, if it were alive, could see itself."

One recent Congressional report called Ohio "a gun-runner's paradise." The reasons are this:

"Ohio requires no permit to carry a weapon; it has no limits on the number of guns an individual can buy; and, unlike Pennsylvania, Ohio has failed to close the "gun show loophole."

"The success we will have in rolling back the socialists' authoritarian agenda is yet to be determined. You have a part in the outcome. You can join us. Then, together with my caucus of liberty-minded colleagues on Capitol Hill and freedom-loving Americans nationwide, you can have an effect on the legislative process. As our numbers grow, so grows our influence.

"Together we can do much, but only you can take the first step. Your first step is to join us."

For liberty,
Ron Paul
