"Pilots already trained to carry guns and operate sophisticated weapons systems are among 100 applicants rejected from a federal program to arm flight-deck officers to protect aircraft from terrorist attacks."

"Former police officers, firearms instructors and military pilots have filed written complaints with the Federal Flight Deck Officers (FFDO) program questioning its psychological- and background-test system, as well as its generic rejection letter that doesn't explain an applicant's purported shortcomings."

"One pilot, a retired Air Force colonel and fighter wing commander responsible for multimillion-dollar jet fighters, said he was allowed to carry his pistol aboard military aircraft." ...

"As for the program's screening process, one pilot, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the psychological evaluation assumes all pilots are 'drunken wife-beaters.' " ...

"Republicans vowed Wednesday to oust from office those who helped defeat a bill to let Wisconsin residents carry concealed weapons. They also promised to introduce a new, leaner version of the bill next year."

"The rhetoric reflected a bitter rift in the Legislature over the proposal to lift Wisconsin's 134-year-old ban on concealed weapons [which] has grown deeper after the state Assembly sustained Gov. Jim Doyle's veto of the legislation Tuesday, failing by one vote..."

"Sen. Dave Zien, R-Eau Claire, one of the plan's authors, warned lawmakers who voted to sustain Doyle's veto or ever voted against the legislation that gun supporters would kick them out of office in November's elections." ...

"Fifteen years ago in Washington state, Ronda Clarke thought she was spending a quiet evening at a friend’s house."

"But when her friend suddenly slapped handcuffs on her wrists, pushed a shotgun into her back and drove her through multiple states against her will over four days, she realized she was a crime victim."

"On Saturday, Clarke finally did something about her fear of being victimized again. The 53-year-old Reno woman took a gun safety course, which is required to apply for a concealed weapons permit."

" 'It’s taken me a long time and by no means am I over it, but I know the best way to face fear is to face it straight on,' Clarke said." ...

Full text of a Letter to the editor of a Utah's Daily Herald:
-------

I remember reading that the early Pilgrims mounted a cannon on top of their place of worship.

I visualize the picture of the Pilgrims carrying their guns to church.

Those who would bring a gun into church would have to have a gun-carrying permit and would have to have a reason to fear for their lives.

Since President Hinckley has banned guns from church-owned property, will his and others' bodyguards leave their guns outside?

Or are some lives more precious than others?

Niagara County Clerk Wayne F. Jagow announced Tuesday that residents of the county's 12 towns no longer need to pay a $5 fee for a criminal background check when they apply for a pistol permit.

Jagow said the Sheriff's Department has trained his staff to perform the background checks, fingerprinting and photos themselves.

Jagow said he is working on agreements with the city police departments in Lockport, Niagara Falls and North Tonawanda for similar arrangements, extending a "one-stop shop" concept to all county residents seeking pistol permits.

Just when you thought you'd seen it all.
-------

BOW, N.H. -- Police usually want to hear from concerned citizens. But officers in Bow have heard enough from Bryan Milazzo.

The police department has gone to court, to try to get him to stop calling.

Lawyers for the department say Milazzo has called 150 times in the last 18 months alone. He usually complains about speeders whizzing by his house.

Police say Milazzo even stands in his yard with a radar gun.

Milazzo counters that police should be cracking down on speeders instead of taking him to court.

But police contend Milazzo's repeated calls have taken up too many hours of investigation.

Milazzo's lawyer says they may sue the police department for violating his rights.
 

CNN's suggestions for kids to avoid abduction or to escape after being abducted
Submitted by: Newslinks Admin

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
CNN's suggestions on how children can avoid being abducted or escape abduction are actually fairly good -- but they do not include any kind of forceful actions a child might have the opportunity to employ successfully.

So on top of their suggestions, let's also include:

* If the opportunity presents itself and you think you've got a good clean shot for escape afterwards, kick him in the privates as hard as you possibly can before running, to decrease his ability to chase you.

* If the opportunity presents itself and you think you've got a good clean shot for escape afterwards, use a pencil, pen or any sharp object, including a finger, to forcefully permanently disable one or both of his eyeballs. If you use something like a pencil, try to drive it into the back of his skull through his eye and get the hell out of there. (NOTE: A pencil jammed deep into his windpipe is also good, but pull it out quickly if possible so he can gasp for air while you escape.)

Etc.

Enough with the politically correct, sugar-coated BS. Along with teaching kids to escape and evade, they should also be taught how to take a would-be abductor OUT and leave him in need of immediate medical attention so he can be captured at the hospital.

Australian police have such absurd restrictions on them to "properly store firearms" that two officers' wives have cooked their service weapons after the officers hid their firearms in the kitchen ovens.
-------

"POLICE have 'lost' at least nine handguns in recent years, with two more being accidentally 'baked' by their partners." ...

"Police sources have told The Daily Telegraph that on at least two occasions Glock automatic pistols have been cooked in ovens after off-duty officers followed instructions to dismantle the weapons and keep them hidden - in these cases in the family oven." ...

Aussie gun banners probably think this is good, "because that's two less guns in the world."

"On 2nd February, David Blunkett, British Home Secretary, reports the BBC, announced that he wants new anti-terrorism laws to make it easier to convict British terror suspects. He has discussed lowering the standard of proof required by a court and introducing more pre-emptive action. Mr Blunkett's 'possible' totalitarian proposals consisted of the following:

"Burden of proof lowered from 'beyond all reasonable doubt' to 'on the balance of probabilities'."

" 'Part-secret trials for Britons.' The BBC added, 'Evidence in the new trials would be kept secret from the defendants to protect MI5, MI6 and GCHQ intelligence sources, Mr Blunkett said.' "

" 'Security-vetted judges for sensitive evidence.' They added, 'It is about the threshold of evidence and the nature of those involved being accredited and trusted not to reveal the sources.' "

"The fact that these kinds of proposals are even considered, shows how this government is set on using this 'terrorist opportunity' to extend its powers and change the basis upon which justice is administered in Great Britain. While we have moved away from the old totalitarianism of the eastern block and the USSR, the new brand of totalitarianism is far more dangerous. This is non-revolutionary socialism/statism. It uses the process of law and the political process to gradually manoeuvre its changes into the system and radically re-shape the social order. The dismantling of the House of Lords was a step in the process and doubtless there will be more."
