"In response to media claims that Al-Qaeda operatives are arming themselves over-the-counter at U.S. gun stores, NSSF President Doug Painter wrote the New York Times and other newspapers that 'The Government Accountability Office report demonstrates that the FBI-run National Criminal Instant Background Check System (NICS) is working in screening potential firearm purchasers. The FBI is alerted when a person on a government watch list purchases a firearm and can take whatever action law enforcement deems appropriate. There is no need for lengthening the 24-hour period for destroying background check records since other records covering the purchase of a firearm are available to law enforcement, if needed. ...'"

"A RECENT WAVE of violent attacks with axes and cleavers raises the issue, once again, about the effectiveness of restricting, banning, or simply scaring people away from owning firearms."

"In London, a man was brutally murdered with an ax on a busy street in an affluent part of town. In San Diego, a man terrorized a neighborhood with an ax. And in Australia, a man nearly lost his hand after being attacked with a meat cleaver."

"Each episode represents a horrific act of senseless, brutal violence that should be unheard of. Yet all three incidents were reported within days of each other. And since we cannot blame the presence of firearms in these crimes we must wonder whether the absence of firearms was a contributing factor." ...

"Imagine that a known terrorist walks into a gun shop and buys an assault rifle or other high-powered weapon. Imagine that person is confronted over the purchase but argues it is legal, and that none other than the U.S. Department of Justice and the National Rifle Association agree with that interpretation of law."

"Now imagine that this isn't a bad plot from a TV crime show but everyday reality in America. In fact, 35 gun purchases by people on the nation's terrorist watch list were approved in a five-month period last year. And those are just the ones uncovered by the Government Accountability Office in a study done for Congress." ...

"A week after the Government Accountability Office released a report exposing a loophole in the law that allows terrorism suspects to easily obtain firearms, Congress is, of course, wasting no time in acting to ensure that not only are terrorists safe from scrutiny, but that all gun sellers are shielded from scrutiny as well."

"As surprising as it may seem in the light of all the public attention on the terrorism report, the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Commercial and Administrative Law will hold a hearing Tuesday ... on legislation that would grant unprecedented immunity from civil litigation to all gun dealers and manufacturers, even in cases of obvious negligence." ...

"I read with interest the editorial 'A gun for one reason only' in the March 10 issue of the Journal Standard. Then I did some research on this particular firearm."

"The 'Five seveN' is a conventional semi-automatic pistol designed to fire various types of ammunition in Fabrique Nationale of Belgium's, new caliber, 5.7x28 mm."

"As required under federal law, only non-armor-penetrating types of 5.7 mm are imported for sale to the public. The 5.7 mm is approximately 22 caliber."

"There is nothing special about the 'Five seveN.' It is a semi-automatic pistol, just like millions of other semi-automatic pistols. BATFE ... has determined that it is 'particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes,' ..." ...

"While the pace of training and deployment of armed pilots on commercial flights has picked up, supporters of the program say the Bush administration still is making it unnecessarily difficult for crews to take guns into the cockpit."

"Pilots who monitor the program estimate that between 4,000 and 4,500 have been trained and deputized to carry guns since the Federal Flight Deck Officer program began in April 2003. That total is about three times as many as a year ago, yet a fraction of the 95,000 pilots who fly for U.S. airlines." ...

"It looked like a classic gangland hit. A Mercedes abandoned on a Brooklyn highway. A bullet-riddled corpse slumped across the seat."

"The dead man was Eddie Lino, a Gambino crime family 'captain'. It was November 1990, the height of the Mafia's brutal civil war."

"In the years that followed the shooting, the police, the Brooklyn district attorney and the federal prosecutor's office scoured the underworld for sources. One informer alleged in 1994 that two corrupt detectives had killed Lino, but the investigation stalled."

"Eleven years of silence followed. Last week, however, the silence was broken with a stunning indictment as investigators announced what their colleagues could never have fathomed 13 years ago when they arrived at the scene of the blood-soaked car: that the men who murdered Lino were not Mafiosi but police." ...

"In the early days of America, so-called blue laws restricted many activities on Sunday. In recent years, however, state governments have recognized that the people's right to choose for themselves what they do, or don't do, on Sunday is more consistent with America's founding principals. Present day bans on Sunday hunting are the last holdouts of these blue laws, and hunters are questioning why they are being treated differently from their fellow citizens."

"The majority of hunters will agree that the biggest obstacle to hunting, and the biggest obstacle to recruiting new hunters, is lack of access and opportunity to hunt. By restricting Sunday hunting, states are not only limiting opportunities for today's hunters but are making it harder to recruit new hunters ..." ...

"Could a courthouse shooting similar to what happened in an Atlanta courtroom last week ever happen here?"

"Luzerne County Sheriff Barry Stankus says it’s extremely unlikely."

"Stankus says his deputies have enough training and safety policies in place to ensure it doesn’t happen." ...

"That’s why Stankus has his deputies carry their 9mm pistols in court."

"When Stankus took office in 2000, deputies did not carry weapons in courtrooms."

"He changed that unwritten practice when he took office, before the courthouse security system was in place. Even with the new security screenings, Stankus allows his deputies to carry their weapons in court as a safety precaution." ...

"The Florida Legislature is on the verge of approving a bill that could turn streets into free-fire zones, enabling people to pull out guns and blast away whenever they feel threatened."

"Lawmakers should get a grip. The state already has a reasonable self-defense law. People are allowed to use deadly force -- including guns -- if they fear their life is in imminent danger and see no way to safely avoid the threat. The "duty to retreat" from a potential attacker does not apply to a person inside his own home, defending against an unlawful intruder." ...

"But she knows she needs a two-thirds majority to get her measure past Chambers."

"Chambers, who calls himself 'King Cobra' because of his ability to kill bills, told her that concealed-carry is a 'four-fanger,' Combs said."

"Please immediately send email to members of the Florida House Justice Council and URGE THEM TO SUPPORT HB-249 by Rep. Baxley." ...

"This bill REMOVES the 'duty to retreat' in the face of attack; it creates the presumption that an attacker or intruder intends to do great bodily harm and therefore force, including deadly force, may be used to protect yourself, your family and others in the face of attack; it prohibits prosecution for defending that which you have a right to defend and prohibits civil lawsuits by criminals or relatives of criminals when criminals are injured or killed while attacking law-abiding people." ...

"After the bill cleared the House Government and Urban Affairs Committee Feb. 22, proponents were optimistic it would have no problem making it through its second committee in time."

"In a special report to be released today, the bird-watching group says white-tailed deer have become an ecological "stressor" for birds and other wildlife by eating away the natural landscape. Hunting, the report says, is a viable option to bring the deer population down to a manageable number that doesn't eat through thousands of acres of forest underbrush."

"THE tragedy of little Andrew Morton, who died after being shot with an air gun, is undoubtedly extreme."

"Usually air guns cause rather more minor wounds or they are used to terrorise and hurt innocent animals . . . like the one-year-old collie cross bitch who was shot in Dumbarton last week, has lost an eye and may die because of the pellet lodged in her brain, rather like Andrew’s injury."

"For most of us the obvious thing to do is ban air guns. Make them illegal. After all, who needs them? What legitimate use can they possibly have? All we do know for sure is who uses them . . . those who think firemen are great targets, those who think it’s hysterically funny to cause pain and suffering to defenceless animals and now . . . those who kill children." ...

"A man was beheaded in a frenzied and prolonged axe attack in a London street today."

"The axeman, smartly-dressed and in his thirties, felled his victim with one blow and then struck repeatedly 'as if he was chopping wood'."

"The assault lasted several minutes near the Hampstead Theatre in Belsize Park. The attacker ignored his victim's screams and the pleas of two women passers-by and workmen. He stopped when police arrived. He then put down the axe near the body. He was described as looking 'emotionless and cool' throughout."
