"Travelers on large privately chartered jets would have to go through the same security screening as other airline passengers under a rule proposed by the Transportation Security Administration."

"It would be the first time the government created security requirements for privately chartered planes, which have become more popular since Sept. 11 as passengers try to avoid long lines at airport checkpoints."

"The security checks would be done by screeners certified by the TSA."

KABA NOTE: Does this mean the federal government also seeks to ban firearms, pocket knives and fingernail clippers aboard these planes, too? Yes. Do they have that authority? No.

Experts say that despite corporate lobbying campaigns and big-money influence in the halls of government, individuals can still make a difference by contacting federal and state lawmakers."

SAN DIMAS, Calif.- "An ex-employee of a plastics business stabbed two former co-workers and set three others on fire by throwing chemicals at them before he was shot to death by deputies, authorities said."

As if our rights are not being trampled upon fast enough by our elected representatives, now it seems that any information placed on the internet, and therefore downloaded in any country in the world, could land the writer in jail if the author enters the country he was convicted in or one with which it has on extradition agreement.

From this report: "One of the country's leading human rights lawyers last night said the trial of the Guardian's correspondent in Zimbabwe, Andrew Meldrum, had ramifications stretching beyond the country's borders."

"Geoffrey Robertson QC, attending the trial in Harare, warned that if the case was upheld, a precedent would be set involving the internet and extra-territoriality."

"On Saturday afternoon, when [Al] Gore was leaving Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport, he was taken aside for some extra scrutiny at a Midwest Express gate before boarding a flight to New York, said Gore spokesman Jano Cabrera, who accompanied him during both checks."

NOTE: Not quite RKBA-related, but it is satisfying to see this elitist "liberal" (socialist) get a taste of his own medicine.

Maybe, just maybe, he'll see the light... ah well, one can always dream.

"As I've written before, our nation did not attain greatness in spite of its citizens' being free; it attained greatness because its citizens were free."

"Today, if we let the federal agents charged with foreseeing and preventing terrorist acts determine how free we should or shouldn't be, I fear that we will be a lot less free than people used to be, and the nation will suffer for it."

"The truth is, we cannot safely be not free."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
[The American Colonies were] all democratic governments, where the power is in the hands of the people and where there is not the least difficulty or jealousy about putting arms into the hands of every man in the country. [European countries should not] be ignorant of the strength and the force of such a form of government and how strenuously and almost wonderfully people living under one have sometimes exerted themselves in defence of their rights and liberties and how fatally it has ended with many a man and many a state who have entered into quarrels, wars and contests with them. George Mason, "Remarks on Annual Elections for the Fairfax Independent Company" in The Papers of George Mason, 1725-1792, ed Robert A. Rutland (Chapel Hill, 1970).
