"About the last thing you want to see after your jetliner has just taken off is the guy in the seat next to you holding a boxcutter, knife or gun. But unfortunately, that is a distinct possibility - even with the multi-billion-dollar screening systems in U.S. airports."

"Airport screening responsibilities were taken over by the government in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, in which passenger jets were hijacked by terrorists and used as flying bombs." ...

"The idea seemed reasonable, the outcome far less so."

"Two reports by government agencies reveal that airport security is no better today than it was before the 9/11 attacks. Undercover agents from the Department of Homeland Security continue to sneak everything from knives to fake bombs to pistols aboard commercial aircraft." ...

"FORMER WARLOCK motorcycle gangster Ronald Geagnacova was sentenced to seven years in prison this week. North Philly barber Joseph Reid was jailed for 15 years by the same federal judge. Both are longtime felons, caught in possession of guns."

"The two ex-cons didn't know each other. They had little in common, except for keeping a firearm handy."

"And for foolishness, which has proven to be one of law enforcement's most effective weapons."

"Like Geagnacova and Reid, many Philly-area gunslingers seem to be their own worst enemies."

"They almost invite police attention and get nabbed with firearms in situations that lead to long jail terms, a Daily News survey of federal gun cases indicates." ...

The second suspect aimed his gun at the victim again while helping Martin to his feet and the victim fired several more shots' at the two suspects, who fled in a waiting car, according to police.

"Amy Zollo, 37, said she has been living 'a nightmare' of death threats, beatings, spousal rape, phone bugging and harassment since deciding to divorce Pasquale Zollo last year after 15 years of marriage." ...

"In a court-filed affidavit, the Nassau County woman said that Pasquale last May punched her and knocked her down a staircase before saying, 'I have 10 bullets and the second to last one is for you. You will watch every one of your family members die first, and the last will be for myself.'" ...

... "Sen. Fasano stated in an April 20 letter that he opposed the Road Rage Reduction Act soon to be signed by the governor. Isn't that strange, because he voted for the self-defense bill that now designates your car as a "castle" with all the self-defense rights of your home to include no duty to retreat."

"With so many Floridians carrying loaded handguns in their cars, this could create a new dimension to the term road rage. Will fender benders and obscene gestures turn into shootouts? ..."

"Carrying loaded handguns in the vehicle compartment of a car is bad enough; now combining the right to carry in a car with new Castle Doctrine rights will mean road rage incidents are bound to become more deadly."

"The gun was a fake, and the knives were used strictly for demonstrative purposes."

"As part of Take Back Your Rights, an event hosted by the Penn State Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), Jones, a lifetime National Rifle Association (NRA) member, told audience members to carry concealed weapons." ...

"YAF President Shauna Moser said in an interview earlier this week that Take Back Your Rights was held in response to last week's Take Back the Night march and rally. She said Take Back the Night is not a proactive way for women to counter sexual violence, and women should instead carry handguns and learn self-defense methods." ...

"Thomas Conroy ... was under a 2002 court order to have no contact with his wife, who had said in requesting the protection-from-abuse order that Thomas Conroy had engaged in a pattern of escalating violence." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A Millbrook student has been arrested for bringing a gun to school.

Police say a 16-year-old boy at Stanhope Elmore High School was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.

Chief Kenneth Bradley says a brave student alerted a teacher about the potential danger.

"A teacher got a note that he might have a pistol in his bookbag," Bradley explains. "The note was taken to the principal's office. The principal came and got him with a security officer. The pistol was in his bookbag inside another bag."

Chief Bradley says the student told him he was carrying the weapon because he was having trouble with a couple of other students at the school.

Investigators say the boy got the gun from his mother's boyfriend.

"County Attorney Andrew Thomas announced his decision today that Sgt. Patrick Haab did not commit a crime. He had been charged with seven counts of aggravated assault."

"'This is a unique case with a very unique set of circumstances, and after a full analysis of the issues involved and the applicable law, prosecution is not appropriate,' said Thomas."

"Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas said Thursday that Sgt. Patrick Haab had the legal right to make a citizen's arrest because the man smuggling the immigrants into the country was committing a felony and the immigrants themselves were conspiring with the 'coyote.'" ...

"'If you would review the 911 tape, that is the best evidence of his state of mind at the time . . . and it was clear to me and to other members of this office in listening to the 911 tape that Mr. Haab did this to effect a citizen's arrest.'" ...

"Mayor Robert Walter said the purpose of the presentation, by Officers Robert "Mac" McCormick and Michael Frickey, was to decide on the purchase of the patrol rifles, since the money for them is budgeted." ...

"[McCormick] said patrol rifles were very accurate with an effective range with minimum recoil. They are faster to get back to a target and practice is much easier on officers. He also stated that with a .223-caliber high-velocity bullet there is less risk of ricochet liability." ...

"Follansbee Police Lt. Louis Bonaventura, alerted to an armed robbery at a restaurant last weekend, caught the suspect quickly. But when he did, he probably was worried about his own safety - the man had a gun, according to reports. Bonaventura drew his own pistol and ordered the suspect to get down on the ground."

"Only then did Bonaventura learn that the man was armed with a BB gun ..."

"Bonaventura handled the arrest very well. But had the suspect made a move Bonaventura saw as threatening, he might well have shot the man in self-defense. Such a response would have been entirely understandable."

"It also would have been a tragedy - and, unfortunately, scores, perhaps hundreds, of similar tragedies are in the making throughout our area." ...

A Justice Court judge signed search warrants, and the two searches were made March 18, according to city and county officials' account of what transpired." ...
