Senate Unlikely to Follow Through With Pilot Gun Program - More White House Opposition

"Legislation allowing commercial airline pilots to carry guns in the cockpit passed the House Wednesday, but it is not likely to get a hearing in the Senate."

"We believe that aviation security has been improved in several ways, including strengthened cockpit doors and additional federal air marshals on airlines," White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said after the vote. "It is not necessary to arm pilots. Their primary responsibility is to fly the airplane."
 

MA: Women's advocates worry gun bill would not have intended effect

"A gun bill that supporters said would provide greater protections to victims of domestic violence may have the opposite effect, according to women's advocates."

"The main purpose of the legislation, approved Wednesday by the House, was to amend the state's landmark 1998 Gun Control Act by allowing people convicted of non-violent felonies and most violent misdemeanors to regain their rights to carry concealed weapons."

"The bill's supporters said the law was unfair to people who committed a minor crime in their youth, but specifically sought to create a gun ownership ban on those convicted of assault and battery against a family or household member."

"Women's advocates Thursday said this section of the bill would be impossible to enforce because criminal records do not now indicate whether the victim of an assault was a relative or a stranger."

KABA NOTE: Many "women's advocate groups" hail from the "give a rapist what he wants" crowd. Following are links to REAL Women's Advocacy groups -- those who prefer to give a rapist what he deserves:

Police invaded the home of a man they allegedly believed to be dealing in one of the few drugs from which the federal government doesn't overtly profit. When they broke into the man's home, his booby trap put some unsightly holes in their legs -- via a shotgun.

Now he's in jail with various charges and dealing with BATF and the U.S. Marshall service -- BATF because a firearm was involved, and the Marshall Service because it's a federal crime to rig your own property such that surviving intruders don't want to come back any time soon.
 

Deroy Murdock: Arm pilots now!

"The Bush Administration is now to the left of Senator Barbara Boxer on arming airline pilots. The liberal California Democrat on July 10 co-sponsored a bill by conservative Bob Smith, R - N.H., that lets qualified pilots carry firearms to stop airborne terrorists."

"I think this is the first time I have ever stood with Senator Smith on an issue that has involved guns," Boxer said at a news conference.

"I believe that pilots who are carefully trained and want to carry a gun in the cockpit should be allowed to do so."

"The White House opposes this policy. If Barbara Boxer gets it, what is W's excuse? For its part, the House - with 102 Democrats in favor - voted 310 to 113 on July 10 to let pilots voluntarily fly with side arms. The Senate should assent and push the president to get with it on this issue."

"Allowing pilots to carry guns might prevent the government from taking other steps to strengthen airline security, the chairman of American Airlines said Thursday."

"American Chairman Donald Carty said the time spent drafting rules and training pilots would come at the expense of other, more effective actions to protect passengers."

"We have been so engaged and the government has been so engaged in things that I believe are the primary parts of security, in particular protecting the cockpit, in particular marrying government intelligence with airline reservation records," Carty told a National Press Club luncheon.

"The anthrax terrorist of 9-11 is known and is being protected by the Bush Administration. This is not a Costa-Gavras film, but the real state of affairs in the America of 2002."

"An extraordinary commentary published in Tuesday's New York Times declares that the FBI is refusing to arrest or seriously investigate the most obvious suspect in the anthrax attacks last fall which killed five people."

"The allegations made by Times columnist Nicholas Kristof are so serious that they deserve immediate and thorough public investigation. But so far, both the Bush administration and the media have remained silent on what is, without exaggeration, one of the most astounding articles ever to appear in a major American newspaper."

"Oklahoma City police defended Wednesday the actions of two officers who struck an uncooperative suspect at least 27 times with tactical batons."

[Many of the blows, the video shows, took place when the 'suspect' was already laying on the ground, face down.]

"Monday afternoon, 'video vigilante' Brian Bates videotaped officers Greg Driskill and E.J. Dyer repeatedly striking Donald Reed Pete, 50, who police said was suspected of soliciting prostitution."

Police Chief M.T. Berry said, “But the techniques I saw were those that our officers are taught at the academy. I did not observe strikes to areas of the body that are prohibited, such as the face or head.”

KABA NOTE: A non-violent felon's rights should automatically be restored as soon as they've done their time and repaid society -- and there are plenty of felony-level convictions for "crimes" that shouldn't be "crimes" at all.

"The editorial staff should be more diligent in reviewing news stories containing editorial comment and bias. A July 4 article on Wal-Mart's gun-sale policy referred to a letter from Americans for Gun Safety, "a moderate gun-control group."

"Moderate? In whose opinion? AGS was founded by Andre McKelvey, former board member of Handgun Control and an extreme gun control advocate."

"So leave the opinions on the editorial page, and not in the news articles. After all, some people think the NRA is a moderate pro-Second Amendment group."

California firearms statutes are a prime example."
