"The federal agency in charge of aviation security is considering major changes in how it screens airline passengers, including proposals that an official said would lift the ban on carrying razorblades and small knives as well as limit patdown searches."

"The Transportation Security Administration will meet later this month to discuss the plan, which is designed to reduce checkpoint hassles for the nation's 2 million passengers. It comes after TSA's new head, Edmund S. 'Kip' Hawley, called for a broad review in hopes of making airline screening more passenger-friendly."

"Expressing concern that the United Nations' efforts to stem international gun running could impede the rights of U.S. gun owners, Sen. David Vitter, R-La., is proposing legislation to bar financing for the world organization should it infringe on Americans' Second Amendment rights."

"Critics of Vitter's bill, including Eric Howard of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, accuse the freshman senator of placating voters who oppose gun control and are cynical about the United Nations. Howard said the bill could torpedo international efforts to stem the flow of arms to brutal militias in Africa and elsewhere that target civilians, particularly children."

"Does anyone know when restraining orders work? After all, it’s newsworthy only when they don’t." ...

"Restraining orders are court orders that prevent one person from contacting another. They can keep someone from visiting the protected person’s workplace, home or school; public places that person often visits; or the person’s friends and family members."

"Local officials feared the Supreme Court’s decision in the Gonzales case would discourage women in abusive situations from seeking restraining orders. More than one month after the decision, though, that does not appear to be the case."

"Domestic violence victims already qualified for such a permit. But now, it seems, the government is practically endorsing them."

"The Pennsylvania Game Commission is seeking a license increase, not totally new to many out there. Of course it must sell the idea to a committee of legislators that seems more critical of the Game Commission's need for monies than it had before voting itself a raise."

"Of course Pennsylvanians become pretty complacent about such goings on. ..."

"Hunters, on the other hand, complain about the license fees once a year, usually in July and August when they feel compelled to buy a license in order to send for an antlerless permit. Oh, yes, they do send for antlerless permits, despite all the complaints about a deer herd too low to offer decent hunting."

"If you haven't been keeping up, or are just getting confused, here's the situation: the Parker case was stayed pending the outcome of Seegars. Seegars was decided, which caused activity in the Parker case; both sides get to file a brief suggesting where they think the case should go next (two briefs total). The other side gets to reply to each brief (two responses to two briefs). And the original filer gets to respond to the that response (two briefs, two responses, and two more responses). This leaves the panel with six documents to read, and a decision to make as to which course they will follow."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mills
