"Lured by higher pay, about 100 U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Rio Grande Valley have transferred to federal air marshal duty.

The agents, from the McAllen Border Patrol sector that includes Brownsville, also recently made the switch because of a greater choice in duty locations, Border Patrol Spokesman Julio Salinas said Tuesday.

Salinas said that, despite the large number of transfers, more Border Patrol agents are patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border now than in the past."

"Lawmakers questioned the exclusion of the FBI and CIA from direct lines of authority under a proposed Homeland Security Department ...

...members of Congress grew more openly critical of the plan, ...even as they generally agreed on a need for quick action.

Also left out of the new department is the agency primarily responsible for tracking guns and bombs - the [BATF].... White House officials say its primary mission doesn't fit the definition of homeland security."
 

It’s the Terrorists, Stupid

"The Israeli’s have it right. It’s no secret why Israeli Airport Security is superior to any other airport security in the world. The technique used by Israel and the “secret” is as clear as it is full of common sense: They go after the terrorists, not the weapons.

Hey. Now that is a novel approach.

Does that mean that the Israeli’s are engaging in racial profiling? To American liberals and anti-Semitic wackos, absolutely."

"Marion County Prosecutor Scott Newman announced plans to use a $360,000 grant to crack down on gun-toting criminals.

Newman said he will use the federal money to assign three deputy prosecutors to investigate only gun crimes.

"We are not targeting guns, but criminals who carry them illegally," Newman said.

But Marion County Chief Public Defender Dave Cook said he doubted the effort would have any real impact on curbing street violence."

5th story on page

Alarmed by the slayings of 12 children this year in Detroit, officials announced a plan Tuesday to raze thousands of abandoned homes and put more police on the streets.

At least two of the children slain this year had been caught in the cross fire of apparent drug-related shootings, and drug dealers routinely operate out of some of Detroit's 10,000 or so abandoned homes.

"While not as fearful of another terrorist attack as New York or Washington, residents of Oklahoma City mirror the rest of the nation in their willingness to give up certain freedoms to gain more security, a national poll shows.

Less than a third of the Oklahoma City residents polled said they are worried that they or a family member will become a victim of a terrorist attack...

The research was funded in part by the Oklahoma City memorial group ..."

"Gene Healy, a Cato Institute scholar, recently provided a thorough exploration of the unintended consequences of one law, the new Bush-Ashcroft plan to federalize gun crimes, known as the Project Safe Neighborhoods program. The unintended consequences of this law are frightening.

The law originated in a strategy by the National Rifle Association and the Bush administration to forestall further anti-gun legislation by emphasizing tougher enforcement of existing gun laws."
 

A Rebuttal to Ralph Weller’s Proposed End To CCW

"In short:

1) Ending CCW will “screw over” a lot of armed people who are deservedly so armed, and/or who are vital as allies (or at least not enemies).

2) It might NOT disarm the worst of the “liberal elites”, and thus spur them towards reform!

3) The CCW system we have can be fixed in court or via other means, more easily than we can get a full replacement passed in the legislature."

"Proposed changes to city zoning rules would allow new gun shops to open only in industrial areas of the city, not in neighborhood commercial districts.

Under a loophole that was mistakenly opened when the city's 40-year-old zoning code was revamped in 1999, licensed gun sales are still allowed in neighborhood shopping districts like Carson Street in the South Side or East Ohio Street in the North Side."

"The Ohio Supreme Court dashed the hopes of gun manufacturers on Wednesday, by reinstating a lawsuit the city of Cincinnati filed against those manufacturers. The city is trying to recover the cost of gun-related violence, and the state Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that it could go ahead and try to do that. The justices said an appeals court was wrong to dismiss the lawsuit, wire services reported."

"Okay, folks, we are in the final stretch here with our Second Amendment Rights and we had better change tactics or we will lose them forever! I’m really out of patience with this issue, and everyone who values freedom should be too! Let me reiterate – there is NO Constitutionally sanctioned gun control – none – nada – zilch! So why do all the folks who claim to believe in Second Amendment rights still put the stupid qualifications on it? It is no darned wonder we are losing this battle!"

"Calls by Watford MP Claire Ward for an "urgent review" of gun laws after a schoolboy was shot in the face with an air pistol, will be taken up by the Government.

Home Office Minister Bob Ainsworth described air gun incidents as "distressing and dangerous" and gave a guarantee he would not "dismiss the concern".

He said barriers were in place to control gun sales, but said he would "again consider the issue of age"."

"Thompson tried to go behind the bar where McCullough, 38, was working as bartender. McCullough, however, blocked his path.

Thompson told McCullough he had a gun and wanted money. He also said if the woman didn't give him what he wanted, he would hurt her and two children who were in the establishment playing video games.

However, McCullough stood her ground. Instead of giving in, she demanded that he show her his weapon."

On June 9th the U.S. Supreme Court determined that further review of the Emerson and Haney cases (two men charged with carrying pistols without a license in the District of Columbia seeking the dismissal of their cases) wasn't warranted. Some are reporting that this action came without comment, but I'm reminded that silence often speaks volumes in itself, and that silence can be "golden".

"Two recent legal developments–a decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and a brief filed by the Solicitor General–seriously undermine the assumptions on which two policies passionately backed by liberals are based: racial quotas and preferences and gun control."
