"The Transportation Security Administration, created in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks on New York City and the Pentagon, continues to defy logic in its bureaucratic resistance to common-sense steps to improve on-board defenses of airliners."

"From day one, the TSA has resisted allowing airline pilots - a large portion of whom are ex-military personnel - to carry guns as a last line of defense. Now the TSA resists making changes to flight attendant training, which still teaches flight attendants to cooperate with hijackers."

"Everyone not working for TSA seems to know what would happen in a hijacking today. Passengers and flight crews would fight back, because their lives and the lives of many others would depend on it. ..." ...

... "We have people today, many people, whose view on life and the government absolutely stops at the Second Amendment to the Constitution. In their opinion we must be armed to fight the monster of civil and criminal law that governs our society. And, all men are not created equal."

"We are being taught to fear and hate everything and everyone. Arm yourself because your rights are being ripped from you by the rapier sharp talons of an oppressive government - nobody can say exactly what rights are being torn away from us except the freedom to carry a gun at all times and use it as we see fit."

"Ohioans For Concealed Carry, the state's largest grassroots organization working to reform Ohio's self-defense laws, announced today that its Office of General Counsel has sent letters to the first municipalities that have passed ordinances attempting to restrict the lawful carrying of concealed handguns by those licensed by the State of Ohio."

"In these letters, Attorney Ken Hanson, Chair of OFCC's litigation section, details to the municipalities why their ordinances are invalid."

"Hanson explained, 'There has been a lot of bad information floating around, particularly with regard to so-called 'home rule' powers. This is not unexpected in the first ninety days of a new law. The purpose of these letters is to lay out in black and white exactly why the ordinances are invalid, and to give each letter recipient a last chance to avoid being sued over the offending ordinance.'" ...

"Ten years since a man walked into Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Headquarters on a November morning, climbed the stairs to the second floor, opened the door to the Cold Case Homicide Squad, pulled a MAC-10 assault pistol out from under his jacket, opened fire and killed two FBI agents and a Washington police sergeant and grievously wounded a third FBI agent."

"The way records manager Bill Wilson reads the statute, nearly 2 million records in his database must be searched for references to guns, a task that would take thousands of hours. Additionally, authorities worry that their crime-solving ability may suffer if collected data are destroyed."

"'It's a mess,' said Sherman Smith, the Police Department's legal adviser. 'This has really got me flummoxed.'"

"He's not alone."

"WITH THE PUBLICITY and political reaction to a recent spate of shootings in San Francisco, it's no wonder that members of the police department might feel they are under the gun. There is no denying the sadness and anger surrounding the tragic death of Officer Isaac Espinoza at the hands of a cold-blooded killer wielding an assault weapon."

"But a proposal to arm city police officers with similar assault rifles seems a premature step to counter the threat posed by mindless gangsters -- especially as local and state political leaders are pursuing a much-needed extension to the ban on the military-style weapons to try to get those guns off the street." ...

"Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns."

"'Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts,' Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1 with legislators, sportsmen’s groups and gun safety advocates. 'These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.'"

"Like the federal assault weapons ban, the state ban, put in place in 1998, was scheduled to expire in September. The new law ensures these deadly weapons, including AK-47s, UZIs and Mac-10 rifles, are permanently prohibited in Massachusetts no matter what happens on the federal level." ...

"With its recent purchase of new semiautomatic handguns and rifles, the Ashland Police Department has joined a growing number of suburban towns in switching over to higher-powered and more-precise weapons, a move officials say helps better prepare them for armed criminals and terrorist attacks."

"Last month, Ashland purchased a Glock .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun for each officer in the department, along with 10 Bushmaster A2-type carbine rifles. The department is currently training to use the weapons: Handgun training should be complete this month, and rifle training, which is more intensive, should be complete by the end of next month."

"'This is the wave in law enforcement,' said Police Chief Roy Melnick. 'Police departments should have the capability of meeting or exceeding the threats out there. Criminals are better-armed, and we need to be able to respond to their threats.'"

Two Colorado girls vacationing in Montana used a cell phone to call for help after finding themselves on a hillside infested with dozens of rattlesnakes.

Izzy Effler, 13, and Morgan Beadwell, 12, climbed a hill in Livingston to try to get cell phone reception.

However, while climbing, Izzy said a rattlesnake struck at her.

Morgan also reportedly stepped on a snake.

The girls then discovered that they were surrounded by six rattlers and used the phone to call for help, according to the report.

Brian Effler and his nephew eventually rescued the girls after shooting two of the snakes.

A rattlesnake trapper said he saw 25 to 30 snakes in the area.

The girls were not injured.

"Like the Bush administration’s reaction following revelations of Iraqi prisoner abuse, some in the hunting community will undoubtedly dismiss the prairie dog 'hunts' described in our cover story this issue as the work of 'a few bad apples.' Perhaps so, but just as the events at Abu Ghraib are only one of the ugly faces of war, hunting, even when not conducted by beer-swilling slobs from pickup trucks, involves a great amount of killing, suffering and death. Regardless of how much spin we employ to legitimize it, war is hell and so is hunting."

"As with the highly questionable intelligence alleging Iraqi 9-11 involvement and weapons of mass-destruction that led us into war, hunting today continues on the strength of some long-debunked myths. They survive thanks to politicians and media that kowtow to the gun industry, the National Rifle Association (NRA) and others who work feverishly to obscure the truth about wildlife 'management.'" ...

"Fragging" — to wound or kill a fellow soldier, usually a superior — is increasingly tormenting the over-stretched Indian Army. In the latest such incident, a jawan shot dead a Lt-Colonel at Baramulla in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday night.

The jawan, B Thapa, took his own life with his rifle later. Army officers said Thapa killed Lt-Col Ranjit Ghosh, the "field cash officer" at the 19 Infantry Division HQ in Baramulla, after an altercation at about 9 pm. "The court of inquiry will establish the reason behind the incident," said an officer. This comes shortly after a Naik, Sri Pal Pathoriya, shot dead two of his seniors in Lucknow after a dispute over sentry duty on May 15.

" With support from a dozen Democrats as well as nearly all Republicans, the bill had more than enough votes for passage. But the legislation collapsed when Democrats pushed for votes on amendments dealing with other issues and Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.), overriding objections from business allies, responded by cutting off all amendments and scheduling a showdown vote." ...
