Air Marshal's Gun Discovered In Hopkins Airport Restroom (another report)
Submitted by: Anonymous

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A passenger at a Hopkins Airport Thursday found a gun in the restroom. The woman turned it over to authorities.

The gun apparently belongs to a federal air marshal who had recently deplaned, gone to the restroom and left the weapon behind. The federal air marshal service is investigating.

For the most part, Hopkins passengers said it sounds like an honest mistake, and said the marshal should not be fired. They're glad the firearm didn't slip through security.

-------
Think about it. The government disarms law abiding, peaceable citizens to the point where we are not even allowed to carry knitting needles aboard an airplane. It is making us depend on armed "government agents" for protection, because supposedly they are somehow more capable and professional than we are. And yet, one of these stellar elite leaves her firearm in a bathroom for anyone to find.

"A federal air marshal accidentally left her gun in a restroom at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, an airport spokeswoman said Friday." ...

"Dave Adams, a spokesman for the federal Air Marshal Service, said the marshal, whose name was not released, probably would be suspended."

Probably? These are the people who are supposed to be our brave protectors in times of emergency, while we sit, disarmed and rendered completely vulnerable by the TSA! How many trained, responsible, courageous gun owners would EVER leave their weapon lying around in a bathroom?
 

Gun industry keeps flooding market with unnecessary new rounds

"What rubs me the wrong way is the unrelenting effort to inundate hunters and shooters with a bewildering array of new cartridges. ..." ...

"Since firearms don't wear out under normal usage, about the only means the gun makers have of persuading shooters to buy new guns is to introduce new cartridges."

"I sympathize with the industry's plight, and I wouldn't object to the introduction of a new round now and then to keep the pump primed if it were kept within reason. But 20 rounds in half a dozen years definitely exceed the bounds of reason."

-------
Since no one is being forced to purchase new rounds or even try them, what exactly is the problem here?

"One of the communist goals is to completely disarm this country and the constant barrage of anti-gun bilge spewed by men serving in public office has been a well thought out propaganda program ('reeducation') to turn men into sissies by demanding they become more 'sensitive' and politically correct. In other words, emasculate them while brainwashing them into believing that guns are the root of all evil instead of the teeth of liberty." ...

"For those women who think that just because they call 9-11 when a couple of big bruisers break into their home - if they even have the time or opportunity to get to the phone - that the police are obligated to run right over and save their bacon are wrong. Dead wrong. ..."

"An American woman is beaten by her husband or boyfriend every 15 seconds. Domestic violence against pregnant women is responsible for more birth defects than all other causes combined. And violence against women rises by 40% on Super Bowl Sunday."

"Everyone knew those domestic violence 'facts' were true -- until Christina Hoff Sommers came along. In her 1994 book, Who Stole Feminism?, Sommers showed that these familiar feminist fables bore no relationship to the truth..."

"...American women are arguably the most fortunate and most prosperous group in history. So when these women are misled about imminent threats of stalking and physical abuse, they are being victimized by a greatly exaggerated feelings of fear and insecurity."

Well, this one just gets it wrong straight out of the gate. How sad that a person who fancies himself a "journalist" - especially someone who attempts to teach the art of journalism others - cannot even get his facts straight.

-------
"Two months before the election, lawmakers will have to decide whether to pass a new ban on assault weapons. Now get this right, these are not machine guns. They are outlawed now and still will be. ..."

Ummm, no, they are not outlawed. Under the provisions of Federal Law, anyone over the age of 21 who is not prohibited from owning a firearm may own NFA weapons including machine guns, sound suppressors (commonly referred to as silencers) and short barreled rifles and shotguns. All you have to do is complete the paperwork and pay the $200 extortion fee. You might want to inform this pseudo professor of the facts and encourage him to do a bit more research before spewing.

This is a revealing view into the "public servants" (read: nazis with badges) whose only purpose in life is to steal what you have to feed the tyranny that enslaves you.

A few juicy, nauseating tidbits:

"Never go into a business thinking, 'Am I going to seize this place?' Always go in thinking, 'What am I going to seize in this place?' "

"We do not have problems. The taxpayer has problems."

"This job is about one thing and one thing only, and that one thing is not called 'government service.' You want to know what that one thing is called? . . . Power. This job is about power and you and me are the princes of power."

"This is the underlying philosophy behind all enforcement: 'You took the people's money and now the people want it back. You can either give it back voluntarily or we will take it from you forcibly.' " -- the PEOPLE'S money? This fascist should take some basic economics and English lessons.

Ever tried to explain the real purpose of the 2nd Amendment to someone and received a dismissive sneer in response? "Yeah, like a bunch of people with rifles could take on the military! What are you going to do to a tank," they always say. The Iraqis seem to be doing a decent job answering those questions lately, and it looks like some of the usual suspects have noticed.

My favorite comment so far:

I have always been an anti-NRA dove, and I have always believed George Harrison's remark: "If everyone who owned a gun would just shoot themselves, there wouldn't be any gun problem."

But now...? Now I am frightened and ready to apply for a gun permit. ...

"More than 1,000 Mendocino County residents are licensed to carry guns in public, the result of a policy adopted by Sheriff Tony Craver that makes it easier to get a concealed weapon permit."

"The number of Mendocino County residents authorized to tote concealed guns has jumped nearly five-fold since 1998, when 217 permits were authorized. Craver was elected sheriff after making a campaign vow that law-abiding citizens would be allowed to carry guns."

"For the most part, the new federal Transportation Security Administration rules are much more restrictive than past years."

"...Basically, the rule is now for all guns, ammunition, knives and other tools to be in checked luggage on airlines, not in carry-on bags. Guns have to be unloaded and in locked, hard-sided cases."

"The TSA is extremely serious about this, and someone ignoring or violating the rules may be hit with a major fine as well as missing out on an anticipated trip."

Meanwhile, their stellar professional employees who are professional enough to be trusted with firearms aboard a plane, leave their guns in airport bathrooms for anyone to find.

"The zero tolerance philosophy of D.A.R.E. could be one reason for its failure with many children, said David Lewis, founder of the Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies at Brown University in Providence."

" 'The D.A.R.E. program has an impact for the moment when it is delivered but it seems to diminish as they grow older, particularly when they see older children using drugs without the disastrous effect,' he said. 'One of the problems with a zero tolerance philosophy is we sometimes markedly exaggerate the dangers rather than taking a more honest, more straight forward, approach ... The credibility suffers over time.' "
 

MD: Regulating Guns as Consumer Products

Heads up!!! Here comes the next wave of attacks on Maryland Gun Owners!

Maryland Consumer Rights Coalition
Cheryl Hystad
Executive Director
3000 Chestnut Ave Ste 203
Baltimore, MD 21211-2752

Is the same address as CeaseFire Maryland's (aka MAHA) right down to the suite number.

Leah Barrett
Executive Director, CeaseFire Maryland
3000 Chestnut Avenue, Suite 203
Baltimore, MD 21211

"The Maryland Consumer Rights Coalition and the Consumer Federation of America Foundation are working to educate consumers about the lack of safety regulation of firearms. Virtually all other consumer products, from toys to jumbo jets, are regulated by a federal agency for health and safety. By comparison, no federal agency has the power to ensure that guns manufactured and sold are safe."

In other words, this is another "coalition" formed in an attempt to relieve you of your rights. Maybe the gun banners feel that if they create as many bogus entities as possible, they'll give the impression of having many supporters.

"Officer Michael Blood's limp body bounced inches off the pavement as the third and fourth cop-killer bullets tore through him. It was like being hit with a 40-pound sledgehammer, he recalls. He was conscious but 'played dead,' hoping the bank robber would stop shooting."

"The Edina police officer, just 29 days from retirement, nearly lost his life in the Nov. 16, 2000, shooting."

"Within minutes of the shooting, a fellow Edina officer and a stranger pushed their fists into the softball-sized holes in Blood's back to staunch the bleeding."

What are "cop-killer" bullets? Are any bullets that can kill a cop classified as "cop-killer" bullets? They could not have been armor piercing rounds, because AP doesn't leave "softball-sized" exit wounds.

"Locals call it the land of ducks, but Traverse County on the western border of Minnesota earned another distinction in the past year: It has the highest rate of conceal-and-carry permits than any of the state's other 86 counties."

"Part of the reason for Traverse County's high rate is because of its small population. But there is another reason: This is hunting country, three hours west of St. Cloud, and some residents said their attachment to guns has more to do with the ducks flying overhead than personal security. Indeed, there's little to fear in Traverse County, a place where people leave their garage doors open and neighbors know who's at the corner store by the make and model of the car parked outside."

Funny enough, the high gun ownership rate has not led to blood in the streets, much to the chagrin of the gun banners, we're sure...

" 'It's not like this is a big crime area where people are worried about their homes,' said Jim Smoger, news editor of the Wheaton Gazette, circulation 2,200. The last murder here was years ago, in 1991, when a former Wheaton homecoming king bashed another man's head with a baseball bat as they fought over a woman."

"A new law that made it easier for most Minnesotans to carry a handgun in public has drawn far less interest than the Legislature projected a year ago."

"With just a month to go until the first anniversary of the Personal Protection Act of 2003, less than half of the estimated 50,000 people who were expected to apply in the first year for a right-to-carry permit have done so."

"Of the 17,325 people who have been issued permits, some two dozen who were initially turned away by local sheriffs because of domestic assault, felony theft or drunken driving convictions later got permits. Otherwise, the law's effects appear to be much milder than what supporters and opponents predicted."

NY: Gun owners oppose bill requiring childproof 'smart gun' technology

"A City Council bill that would require guns to be equipped with childproof 'smart gun' technology has been blasted by Staten Island gun owners as a dumb idea."

"The bill, to be introduced later this month by City Council Speaker Gifford Miller (D-Manhattan), would require guns sold or possessed in the city to be 'personalized' so they can be fired by authorized adult users only." ...

"But gun owners on Staten Island believe the bill is another attempt to infringe on their rights to keep and bear arms."

" 'They aim to disarm us,' said Tony Castellano, membership director of the Staten Island Sportsmen's Club..."

"Castellano argued that the bill, if enacted, would be ignored by criminals who own illegal guns. A crackdown on gun-toting criminals would accomplish the city's public safety goals without infringing upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners, he said."

"On Wednesday, Ohio joined the majority of states when the controversial law allowing people to carry concealed guns took effect."

"After such laws have gone into effect in other states, I have found, the Hollywood-like scenes of spontaneous violence painted by concealed-carry's opponents simply do not materialize."

"However, neither does proponents' vision of decreased crime and improved personal security."

"The pattern of uproar that accompanies the legislative passage of concealed carry laws is also essentially the same from state to state. Opponents paint lurid pictures of bloody shootouts in the streets, innocent bystanders struck down by stray bullets, vigilante-style justice."

In other words, the sky did not fall, as the "thousand or so misguided, disarmed mommies" hoped it would.

What kind of action? The only kind of action you can take against violence is self-defense and education.

"A severed head was found on a park bench in northern Honduras on Thursday, the 10th such incident since the government began cracking down on youth gangs last year, police said."

"The man's head was in a black plastic bag and, as in previous cases, was accompanied by a note to Honduran President Ricardo Maduro, who ordered the crackdown."

"Some 1,000 suspects have been rounded up in the sweep on gangs that started in August. Police now have the power to arrest people simply on suspicion of being associated with a gang."

"Aid groups say more than 2,200 youths have died in Honduras since 1998 in gang wars or illegal executions of gang members by rogue policemen."

Are these same "rogues" being investigated, or are they the ones with the power to arrest people based merely on suspicion?

"After receiving an alert by a local resident in Yahatanishi-ku, Fukuoka police arrived at the scene at about 10:40 p.m. to find Hama in the driver's seat of a car bleeding from the head."

"A Muskegon Heights police officer was recovering this weekend from a lost finger after a handgun he had seized from a suspect discharged at police headquarters."

"Officer Mario D. Sain suffered the loss of his right small finger, police and fire officials said. They said Sain was placing a .40-caliber Glock semi-automatic pistol in a box at about 4:10 p.m. Friday when the weapon discharged. The gun was being readied for shipment to a crime lab where it was to be checked for fingerprints and other possible clues."

Of course it could never be that the officer violated at least one rule of gun safety, and more likely 2 rules. It was the gun's fault! Bad gun! No supper for you!

"FROM the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Tafa Balogun, came the confirmation, weekend, that the large scale ammunition in wrong hands was partly responsible for the upsurge in violent crimes and the high profile killings witnessed of late in the country."

"But Balogun said the police were doing their best to contain the onslaught by the men of the underworld as, according to him, no fewer than 33 armed robbery suspects had shot dead by the police in the first quarter of the year with 153 in the net."

"Five policemen also lost their lives in the hands of the dare-devil robbers."

-------
Translation: Bad guys can get guns and ammunition at will, and are, then, able to prey on the peasants who have been disarmed by their government.

"A Cook County judge on Friday chided a former Maywood police lieutenant for a pattern of corruption on the force and sentenced him to 5 years in prison for official misconduct."

"...Jenkins, 57, was found guilty in February of official misconduct, aggravated discharge of a firearm and theft for shooting a man's car in 2001 during a traffic stop and taking tools from him."

"Jenkins could have been sentenced to probation, but Fox said a prison sentence was necessary to protect the public."
