"This is a grass roots petition to get signatures to submit a petition to the US Senate and House to get legislation to allow police officers to carry concealed firearms on domestic airlines flights. With the passing of House Bill 218, we need to extend that to the air above the states. See the petition for more information."

Democrats Still Hate Your Guns

"Ah remember the good old days when Democrats put their true agenda right up front where guns were concerned? They did not pull any punches or fudge their opinions at all. They did not believe in the right of Americans to own guns and they gladly said it. A Democrat seeking public office was sure to put their Liberal views of guns and the Second Amendment front and center." ...

"Nowadays though all that has changed. Today finding any Democrat who will even touch the subject of gun ownership with a hint of their true feelings is tougher than finding honesty in a Michael Moore film."

So why have Democrats largely stopped talking about gun control? Could it be they have changed their former views of guns? Perhaps they have actually read the writings of the Founders and finally realized that yes, yes, yes, the Founders did intend to protect the right for Americans to own and carry guns? Don’t bet on it my friends." ...
 

Study: Thousands Bought Guns Illegally

"More than 7,000 people who should have been barred from buying guns were able to buy them anyway in 2002 and 2003, according to a Justice Department review released Monday."

"The government rarely prosecutes such cases, the report said." ...

"Several reasons were cited by ATF for its failure to retrieve the guns more quickly, including staffing shortages, technology problems and lack of adequate timeliness standards. The review also found that ATF agents did not consider it a priority to track down the illegal gun purchasers because they are not viewed as dangerous."

"'We were also told that 'bad guys' generally do not purchase their firearms through legitimate dealers' but instead do so illegally, at unregulated gun shows or flea markets or through other means, the review said."
-------

Yet according to their own figures in the DOJ study "Firearm Use by Offenders" over 12% of offenders got their weapons from a retail store or pawnshop, and less than 2% from gun shows or flea markets (where FFL dealers still have to perform their Brady checks).

... "Voting presents a moral dilemma for Libertarians because the act of voting is essentially giving authority of one man to rule another. You can only give permission for someone to rule you; that's it. The argument could certainly be made that voter participation, in and of itself, gives approval to authoritarianism. As I have argued in this series and in other articles, an election boycott could be far superior to voting if it is managed properly." ...

"Saying a newly revised Missouri law bars such legal action, a state appeals court refused Tuesday to reinstate the city's lawsuit that sought compensation from gunmakers, distributors and related trade groups for gun-related injuries."

"St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay called the ruling by the three-judge Missouri Court of Appeals disappointing, adding that it was not yet clear whether the city would further appeal."

"'Our lawyers are reviewing the decision, and we're looking at our legal options,' Slay said. 'We knew it was an uphill battle, but given the devastation of gun violence we thought it was a battle worth fighting.'"

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The nation's garroting survivors demonstrated outside the Capitol Monday, raising a hoarse but plaintive cry for a nationwide ban on potentially lethal wire. "Every year, dozens of people are severely injured or even killed by garroting," croaked Gerald Michaels, who still bears a necklace of scars from a 1997 telephone-cord-assisted mugging that nearly claimed his life. "This legacy of shame will continue until we eliminate the lethal wires that run through our homes, above our streets, and through our very way of life." Michaels recently accepted a $2 million grant from a coalition of sponsors that included Bluetooth and Cingular Wireless.

"109 soldiers in the Russian army have killed themselves in the first half of 2004, a rise of nearly 40% from last year. Every army suicide is investigated as a criminal case, since top brass themselves admit that a large portion of the suicides were driven to their drastic final step. Faced with violent hazing from their peers and indifference from their superiors, many young conscripts opt for suicide — the only choice they see when they feel their life has been destroyed." [emphasis added] ...

"If that’s an example of a good superior, what’s a bad one? The Union of Soldiers’ Mothers’ Committees posts letters from soldiers subjected to horrific treatment by their commanders. Sodomizing soldiers with a chair leg, beating naked handcuffed soldiers, and shooting an air rifle at them are just a few examples from the very first letter on the website." ...

"Why do gun tinkerers constantly seek new calibers and come up with new cartridges? To fill a specific want or need. Cartridges that we all think of as standards today usually started life as experimental military cartridges or wildcats developed by rifle cranks. The 7mm Remington Magnum, the .22-250 and the .243 are three of the most popular factory rounds today, and all started life as popular wildcats, inspiring manufacturers to finally turn them into production chamberings."

Five men have been charged over the murder of a 45-year-old accountant who died last year after being forced to swallow acid.

Dominic Li died in January last year, after two men allegedly held him at gunpoint and forced him to swallow acid in front of his wife and 14-year-old son.

Detectives from the South-East Asian crime squad have charged five men from western Sydney and the central coast with a number of offences, including murder, conspiracy to murder, grievous bodily harm and possessing a pistol.

All five will appear in Sydney Central Court today.

Mr Li's wife has released a statement saying she is pleased detectives have charged the men.

She says if the men are found guilty, no punishment could ever compensate for the loss of her husband.

"A radical scheme to vaccinate children against future drug addiction is being considered by ministers, The Independent on Sunday can reveal."

"Under the plans, doctors would immunise children at risk of becoming smokers or drug users with an injection. The scheme could operate in a similar way to the current nationwide measles, mumps and rubella vaccination programme."

"Childhood immunisation would provide adults with protection from the euphoria that is experienced by users, making drugs such as heroin and cocaine pointless to take. Such vaccinations are being developed by pharmaceutical companies and are due to hit the market within two years." ...

How about immunising them against crime by decriminalizing self-defense?
