Air passengers could have their conversations and movements monitored as work intensifies to design the terrorist-proof aeroplane.

Researchers in Britain and Europe are looking at technology that would see a comprehensive network of microphones and cameras installed throughout the aircraft, including the lavatory, which would be linked to a computer.

"Passengers are not being snooped on by humans, but by machines which will process the data," said Catherine Neary, of Bae Systems.

"There are likely to be cameras and microphones in the toilet, because that is where terrorists go to assemble bombs."

Just because something's legal doesn't mean it's logical to do it.

This simple principle was demonstrated by University of Utah President Michael Young and the previous administrators who enforced a policy of prohibiting guns on campus in spite of pressure from state legislators who vehemently deny the U's right to exercise autonomous authority over the issue of gun control.

NORTH West Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham has vowed to resist any moves for tighter controls on gun ownership.

A survey last week showed that gun ownership in the east of England has risen by almost a third in just six-years and more than 65,000 firearms are registered in Norfolk.
The news came as a shock to anti-gun campaigners who immediately called for a reduction in gun-ownership and a new law governing gun registration.

"Two guys and a girl were upstairs partying, and they say they found a gun in the room when they checked in. One of the three fired the gun, which went through the floor, through the ceiling, through the bathroom wall and hit the guy," said Detective Sgt. Tom Donovan of the Central Police District.

Two United Dairy Farmers (UDF) locations have recently fallen victim to armed crime. This is in spite of the fact that both stores are allegedly posted as “No Gun” zones due to UDF’s corporate decision to disarm its customers and enable violent robbers by ensuring that all victims have been rendered helpless for their convenience.

America's still-vivid memories of that miserable morning five Septembers ago may be brightened by recollections of former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani's focused, confident performance on 9/11. The ongoing goodwill his leadership generated may explain why he outpaces his potential rivals for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination.

Polls last month showed Giuliani waxing on the right, despite misgivings conservative GOP voters may have with him on abortion, gay rights or gun control.

Southeast Jackson crackled with friendly fire Thursday as more than 220 competitors gathered for the 69th annual Michigan Police Shoot.

Nestled in a banked hollow off E. South Street, behind the Fraternal Order of Police, the gun range hosts the largest police bull's-eye pistol shoot in Michigan.

It is a contest for bragging rights and prizes, and a reunion of cops and prison officers complete with picnics and displays of the latest ordnance for crime-fighting.

A rural school was locked down on Monday after a man looking for aluminum cans found four guns across the street from the school near an orchard, authorities said.

The Merced County Sheriff's Department initially reported that a backpack containing three handguns and an SKS assault weapon was found at 9 a.m. on the edge of the Delhi Educational Facility, a combined high school and middle school with about 1,000 students. But police later said the loaded guns were not found on campus but across the street.

The recent arrest in the serial sexual predator and murderer known as the Baseline Killer reminds us that women should be as prepared as possible to defend themselves against sexual predators.

...

5. Know that anything can be a weapon: keys, a purse, teeth, nails, a car door, a tree (which can trip up an attacker), dirt, shoes, and cell phones. Think about ways to use your body and ordinary objects to protect yourself if needed.

Ed. Note: Apparently a lawfully carried knife or a gun can't be a weapon.
 

MI: Dove hunt group loses quest for 'no'

The fate of Michigan's dove hunting season could boil down to the choice of a few simple words on the November ballot.

Both sides typically want a ballot question to be worded so a "no" vote will favor their side.

But on Aug. 25, the state Board of Canvassers approved official ballot language for Proposal 3, which will determine whether the mourning dove will be classified as a game or song bird in Michigan: A "yes" vote will reinstate the dove hunting season previously established in 2004. A "no" vote will return the mourning dove to its pre-2004 status as a songbird that can't be legally hunted.

Earlier this month, the Philadelphia Daily News called its hometown the “City of Blood,” and by all accounts that is a fair assessment for a place with 268 murders and more than 1,330 people shot this year.

So all eyes will be on Harrisburg later this month, when the state House meets in a rare, informal daylong voting session on how to curb violent crime in the City of Brotherly Love and across Pennsylvania.

If elected in November, Democratic New York State Attorney General candidate Andrew Cuomo will tap Rochester Mayor Bob Duffy to join a statewide effort to fight crime. Because of Duffy's experience as a police chief, Cuomo says he wants his ideas on how to make cities safer. Duffy says getting illegal guns off the streets will continue to be a priority. Cuomo plans to do that by taking on gun dealers. He wants them to follow the same code of conduct in place for gun makers. Cuomo also wants state lawmakers to pass more laws banning certain weapons.

Cars are easier to trace than guns, says Pacific Grove Police Chief Carl Miller. But new technology, he hopes, might change that. Vehicle identification numbers follow cars from owner to owner all the way back to the production line. But many handgun traces don't go that far because not all states require firearm registration, Miller says. "With firearms, I would say 40 percent of what we find is unregistered." Matching a bullet casing stamp to a handgun's serial number could change that.

A former neo-Nazi told a jury Monday that he sold machine guns to a federal informant because he knew he'd be arrested and that his trial would provide a forum for challenging gun control laws - a claim that drew quiet chuckles from prosecutors.

"It was something I could do for my country, something my children could remember me by," Keith D. Gilbert testified as his weeklong trial concluded in U.S. District Court.

n a ruling that legal experts say could threaten the autonomy of public universities and the safety of their students, the Utah Supreme Court ruled Friday that the University of Utah cannot bar guns from its campus.

The university says that the ban will remain in effect, pending a federal court battle, where academic freedom arguments based on the the U.S. Constitution will be raised. Nonetheless, Friday’s ruling angered college leaders, who saw it as a terrible precedent. “This is a violation of law and common sense,” said Sheldon E. Steinbach, vice president and general counsel of the American Council on Education, which is backing the university in the case.

Marshall will discuss the Constitutional basis of treaties with Native American tribes, while Straughan will focus on “The Second Amendment: Meaning, Intent, Interpretation, and the Supreme Court.” Riggs will focus on “Constitutional Controversies,” which will touch on some historical debates about the Constitution and its meaning.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As I have stood in the crosshairs of those who target Second Amendment freedoms, I've realized that firearms are not the only issue. No, it's much, much bigger than that. I've come to understand that a cultural war is raging across our land, in which, with Orwellian fervor, certain acceptable thoughts and speech are mandated. Charlton Heston
