Glenn was involved in a tragic accident on Saturday, June 29th when his 1895 Remington Lee Rifle exploded. He was taken to St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem, PA, but was not able to recover. He was 54.

Glenn was a devoted employee of Sarco for 28 years, and specialized in military firearms. He had a tremendous love for guns and was passionate about his work. He was among the most well respected and knowledgeable people in the industry. Glenn was good friend and he will be missed.
 

MI: Hoekstra: No guns

"U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra says he opposed a House bill allowing airline pilots to carry guns because he believes the government shouldn't saddle taxpayers with the cost of training and supplying weapons."

"Under this bill, taxpayers are forced to pay the massive cost to train and equip all airline pilots. As passed by the House, (the bill) is now a full, bureaucratic program with no future analysis of effectiveness," Hoekstra said."

KABA NOTE: [sarcasm on] Yep, he's right. The 28,000+ new federal employees manning security checkpoints at airports is so much less expensive. And the costs associated with having fighter jets shoot down defenseless-pilot commercial airliners would be minimal -- just think how many more people will fly after that happens. [sarcasm off]

"Anybody wanna volunteer?"

"That is how an amiable old gentleman greeted passengers at a boarding gate at Philadelphia International Airport earlier this week. The man, an officially designated security screener, was lightheartedly conducting 'random' checks. He giggled. I scowled. He then yanked me out of a group of some 50 passengers to do his bit to fight terrorism."

"The Bush administration's four most senior Cabinet secretaries warned congressional leaders Thursday against making changes that would undermine the White House proposal for a new Department of Homeland Security."

"But even before the secretaries of state, defense, justice and treasury finished speaking, House members elsewhere on Capitol Hill moved swiftly to alter the plan."

"... lawmakers created a smaller and less autonomous department than the one President Bush proposed last month."

"Too shaken to talk about the ordeal that could have cost them their lives, Ronnie and Barbara Norton rested Thursday."

"The couple, owners of Norton's Jewelry in Marietta, were attacked by two gunmen Wednesday at the business day's end. A shoot-out between Ronnie Norton and the would-be robbers ended in the death of one of the assailants."

"The Nortons' store remained closed Thursday. They released a statement, saying they weren't ready to talk about the shooting."

"Lawmakers balked Thursday at moving the Coast Guard and the nation's emergency disaster agency into a new Homeland Security Department ..."

"... the decisions indicated Congress' intent to recast Bush's plan for consolidating two dozen agencies and 170,000 government workers into a new Cabinet department."

"If we do something incorrectly, we'll be haunted by this legislation," said Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, chairman of the House Transportation Committee.

"FARMER Fred Hemstock wept with relief yesterday after a jury cleared him of deliberately shooting a man outside his isolated farmhouse at 2am."

"Family and friends hugged him as a judge told him: “You are free to go — I think you’ve suffered quite enough.” "

"Fred, 55, had grabbed his shotgun when police refused to answer his frightened wife Wendy’s 999 call — because nothing had been stolen."

"You can't dial 911 at 30,000 feet. It is this fact more than any other that likely prompted the House to pass a bill on Wednesday that would allow all 70,000 U.S. commercial airline pilots (not just the 1,400 envisioned under a two-year experiment that had previously been considered) to carry firearms aboard their airplanes as a last-ditch means of self-defense against would-be hijackers."

"The overwhelming 310-113 vote in the House puts renewed pressure on the Senate to pass companion legislation — and we hope will cause the Bush administration to reconsider its bewildering opposition to this eminently sensible idea."

"David Blunkett today claimed that the Government's war on street crime was 'beginning to work' as new figures showed muggings rocketing by 31 per cent."

"Across Britain there were 108,178 street robberies last year while in London - the country's biggest crime hotspot - these were up by an average of 38 per cent with some boroughs seeing alarming increases of as much as 68 per cent."

QUESTION: If that kind of rise indicates "beating crime," what would a total victory look like?

Armed Pilots? Many Travelers Are Gun-Shy

"As a frequent flyer who got through airport screening just last fall with a box cutter that he forgot to remove from his pocket, Todd Ross of Gilbert, Ariz., has thought long and hard about ways to improve airline security."

"Arming pilots, he said, is not one of them."

""What if the pilot misses the assailant?" Mr. Ross, a wine and spirits sales representative, wondered as he waited today to board a flight at Sky Harbor International Airport here to Charlotte, N.C."

"Anything could happen. I think it's wrong. Absolutely wrong. It's not the way to go. If a pilot had a gun, I don't think I'd feel any safer."

KABA NOTE: Yeah, you're right, Mr. Anti-Gun Alcohol Vendor -- it makes so much more sense to have a fighter jet blow the whole plane out of the sky. What were we thinking?

"A report by the [billionaire, elitist, anti-rights, deceitful people at] Americans for Gun Safety Foundation shows that, over a 30-month period, 10,000 felons and others prohibited from owning guns were able to obtain a firearms because required background checks could not be completed within the three business days allowed by federal law."

"When law-enforcement agencies can't get the checks done in the allotted time frame, it is because they are scrambling for information."

KABA NOTE: Infringing on the right of the people to keep and bear arms is an unacceptable solution. Any prior restraint on a basic constitutional, civil and human right violates the foundation of our nation's liberties.

"On Wednesday, the House wisely passed legislation that would let airline pilots carry guns in cockpits. The bill faces opposition in the Senate, but that may be crumbling as support builds for a Senate version that is similar to what the House passed."

"The White House line – that pilots should leave defense up to air marshals and stewardesses – doesn't really fly."

"Many of the prez’s fellow travelers are none too happy about this (though one character from Little Green Men did inveigh against “imprudent bravery”). As one conservative wag put it, while pilots fighting back is verboten, 'allowing them to be stabbed in the back with box cutters seems to be okay.' But any House vote that goes 310 to 113 is evidence of what some politely call an issue’s “resonance” – i.e., it’s an issue worth stealing."

"On Thursday, O'Brien and her husband, Jay, took care of one more thing. The mother and father from Kennebunk watched as the gun used to kill Devin O'Brien was cut into useless pieces by a state firearms examiner."

"Under a year-old law, handguns used in homicides must be destroyed when they are no longer needed as evidence. In the past they were auctioned off with other seized firearms."

QUESTIONS: Considering that so many children die of drowning, why aren't the courts mandating that these deadly swimming pools be filled with cement or flower gardens? Has a legislature ever required cars to be cut into pieces after someone dies in them? Or might this merely be yet another crafty demonization of firearms designed to do nothing more than program the general population that guns are bad?

Democrat defends party stance on Second Amendment by rambling about hunting and shooting

"At the recent convention in Billings, the Montana Democratic Party reaffirmed its longstanding support for the right to own and bear arms as defined in both the Montana and U.S. Constitutions. It is ironic that the Democratic Party must now state the obvious to counter chronic and blatant misrepresentations by its detractors."

KABA NOTE: This lady goes on to tell us how she's a Second Amendment supporter because she's an NRA member and knows some hunters, etc. etc. -- but not a word about LIBERTY, or even about self-defense. Hunters and shooters may buy her "we support the Second Amendment" blather, but patriots should beware such undermining of the true meaning and intention of the right of the people to keep and bear arms -- let such diversionary tactics be exposed at every turn.

"A Rock County woman convicted of shooting her angry husband to death as he got out of bed will get a new trial after the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Thursday that she should have been able to present evidence of his past violence to support her claim of self-defense."

"Thursday's unanimous ruling clarifies legal standards for admitting evidence of self-defense, which the trial judge had ruled was limited to the events immediately preceding the crime."

"The decision was praised by one domestic abuse expert as a way to help put such cases into context for a jury."

"Department of Justice spokesman Randy Romanski said the state was disappointed in the ruling, which alters standards set down in a 1993 ruling."

A woman jogging, is attacked by bear. Little did bear realize woman was ex-marine. Both bear and woman are worse for wear.

Too bad she wasn't armed, she'd have had a nice fur coat.

What torques me off is the comment from the wildlife biologist working for the forestry. (saying stupid things like that gets people killed):

"John Hechtel, a wildlife biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, says the area is densely populated with black bears but they don't usually attack humans."

"He says in the event of an attack, people should fight back using 'a chunk of wood or rock' and 'make yourself seem as big as possible'."

"THIS is the battered and bruised face of an elderly mugging victim who might have been stalked before being pounced on by a callous attacker."

"The daylight mugging in Burnley of 80-year-old Mrs Mabel Sutcliffe has sickened hardened police officers who are appealing to the public – including members of the criminal fraternity – to help catch the man responsible."

"This has upset us. Even after 20 years as a bobby there is the strong feeling of wondering what sort of guy could do this," said Det. Sgt Derek Jones.

Answer To Sgt. Jones' semi-asked Question: The same kind of guy who'd throw that same old woman in jail for defending herself against such an attack. Look in the mirror, bud -- people like you made this attack possible in the first place.

"Surgeons are dealing with escalating numbers of patients with penetrative injuries ... They are seeking training to deal with such situations."

"Once inside, Rickert spotted 39-year-old bartender Nicola Whary of Lykens, whose hands had been wrapped in duct tape by Reibsome as he attempted to rob the establishment. Rickert jumped the intruder and a scuffle ensued between the two men, during which Whary was able to free herself and call police."

"Rickert was able to subdue Reibsome and hold him until Lower Mahanoy Township Chief of Police Randy Wynn and state police arrived to take the armed robber into custody."

MA: Women on guard after latest rape; police to offer 'self defense class'

"The North End rapist's latest attack has sparked fear among women in the tight-knit community and sent men into fits of rage, residents said yesterday."

``It makes me angry,' said Mary McBride, taking a break from shopping on Hanover Street. ``I walk a lot alone, at 10 at night and it never bothered me. Now it does.'

"McBride said she has always considered the North End a safe neighborhood, and it's the reason she moved in 10 years ago. Now the 58-year-old Everett native can't shake a sense of fear."

"The rapist's latest attack occurred at 2:30 a.m. July 4 when he grabbed a young woman from behind after a month passed with no incidents. The first rape was reported May 18. Four other women say they were indecently assaulted over the next two weeks. Lifelong North End resident David Fasano said the rapist's biggest problem is not police, but local men who are enraged over the assaults."

"To help women protect themselves against the rapist, or any other attacker, police will offer some form of self-defense class by the end of next week."

KABA NOTE: If this "self-defense class" doesn't include firearms training and assurance that any woman caught carrying a firearm but showing no criminal intent will not be arrested, these are merely the spineless, hypocritical and unmanly gestures of Rapist Supporting Elitists.
