Berks County Sheriff Barry J. Jozwiak was trying to comply with a court order to create a more secure list of gun-permit holders when an outside contractor left at least some of the list exposed on the Internet, officials said Thursday.

“The sheriff was in the process of complying with the court when this happened,” county Solicitor Alan L. Miller said.

In 2002 the Federal Aviation Administration set into action Section 128 of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, which allows pilots with proper training and certification to carry a loaded firearm in the cockpit to be used at their discretion in the event of a threatening situation onboard.

The pilot is essentially given the authority of God in the skies.

But getting this weapon is not as easy as some may think.

A resolution intended to help eradicate illegal sales of guns was unanimously approved Tuesday by the Common Council.

The resolution, which was submitted by council President Michael Coffey, D-At Large, notes that 30,000 Americans are killed every year as a result of gun violence, that the council members are duty-bound to do everything in their power to protect the city's residents, especially children, from harm, and that "there is no greater threat to public safety than the threat of illegal guns."

Quebec Premier Jean Charest pledged a stiff fight yesterday against Prime Minister Stephen Harper's plans to scrap the country's long-gun registry as his emotionally raw province came to grips with Wednesday's murderous rampage at Dawson College.

One day after the shootings, gun-control advocates promised a reinvigorated battle to save the controversial $1-billion registry, which the Harper government announced in the spring would be scrapped. Virtually all Quebec politicians outside Mr. Harper's Tory caucus lined up against the Prime Minister.

Montville Mayor Joseph Jaskiewicz did what he could and got nowhere. Then he tried again -- with the same result. Since Montville cannot get a firearms safety ordinance onto the books, the state should take the initiative. State Rep. Kevin Ryan, D-Montville, intends to do exactly that. Ryan wants to assemble "the stakeholders" -- police, public safety officials, sportsmen's groups and members of the National Rifle Association -- and discuss a law that would outlaw the discharge of firearms within 500 feet of a building housing people, pets or livestock.

A. Barton Hinkle on similarities between some of the arguments concerning ethnic profiling and those concerning gun control. Do opponents of profiling realize how much they have in common with opponents of gun control, and vice versa?

THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES....

"...There are many things that the majority and Government cannot do....no laws can be made respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right to assemble and petition Government for a redress of grievances. THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS CANNOT BE INFRINGED; the right to be secure in their persons and houses against unreasonable searches and seizures cannot be violated. No person can be held to answer for capital or other infamous crimes, unless upon indictment of a grand-jury, etc...."

Horatio Seymour.

(Governor of New York State from 1853-1854 and from 1863-1864)

Larry Loveland hopes to get $1 million for an antique revolver involved in a patent lawsuit. But he'll settle for $475, he quipped. "It's a beautiful little 1865-vintage revolver that was involved in a patent suit with Smith & Wesson because it was a copy of their model No. 1," he said. "This was made by American Standard Tool Co." The revolver is just one of the pieces he plans to bring to this weekend's New York State Arms Collectors Association's Gun Show and Sale, at the state fairgrounds in Geddes. Loveland, of Warren Center, Pa., is one of the directors of the show.
 

In The United States, There Is No Such Thing As An Illegal Gun

I think we need to get on this.

Think about it for a minute. Guns in America are a civil right. Stopping guns everywhere makes about as much moral sense as punishing the Los Angeles Times just because some people defame others, falsely advertise, commit mail fraud or lie under oath.

Is the Second Amendment absolute? Yes, whereas the First Amendment is not absolute. Who would benefit and who would lose if citizens carried handguns a lot, lot more than they do? Citizens would gain, criminals would lose, and demagogic officials would lose.
 

Canada: We need means of self-protection

Another pointless horror visited upon innocents. We fancy ourselves civilized and safe, but we live in a violent and unpredictable world. We cannot control madmen. We cannot predict mayhem. The only rational solution is to allow ourselves the right and means for self-protection. Sadly, successive governments have seen fit to allow us the "dignity" of being a helpless victim by banning self-defence as a right in Canada.

Two 17-year-old boys suspected of plotting an attack at East High School made their first court appearances Friday afternoon. Green Bay police say Shawn Sturtz and William Cornell were planning to use bombs and other weapons on East High School.

The boys had spent months collecting the materials for an attack, investigators say. It was two days ago, after a girl broke off her Internet relationship with Sturtz, that he started talking about attacking their high school.

Canada: When legal guns are used to kill

All three guns in the Montreal shooting rampage, including the semi-automatic weapon wielded to such terrifying effect, were legally registered to the gunman. That comes as a terrible shock. If Canadians are permitted to own guns that prove useful to those bent on mass murder, is the list of tolerated guns too broad? Or is the Canadian Firearms Centre, which runs the federal gun registry, missing some red flags when dangerous people apply for licences and gun registration?

After hearing about the shooting incident at Dawson College in Montreal, I can't help but be reminded of the Ecole Polytechnique shooting in 1989. As a gun owner, I am now bracing myself for the backlash against me and the millions of other law-abiding gun owners in this country.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Two Durham police officers charged with assaulting a man outside a Raleigh sports bar in July have been fired, Durham Police Chief Steve Chalmers said at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

The termination of Gary P. Lee and Scott C. Tanner was the result of a nearly two-month-long internal investigation into allegations that they assaulted Rene Dennis Thomas, a 29-year-old cook at Blinco's Sports Restaurant & Bar on Glenwood Avenue.

Chalmers said Thursday that the two officers made a terrible mistake. He described them as good officers, but said that having them remain on the police force would only erode the public's confidence in the department.

School districs around Utah say even with threats of year-long suspension, they're still seeing a lot of students bringing potential weapons to school.

Many parents saying suspending a young child for an entire school year because they brought a toy gun to school is too much. But Larry Urry with the Jordan school district says it's state law, and every parent signs a paper each year, "They're always given out every year to every student."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their luscious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. This, sir, is what I long for. -- General Francis Marion, American War of Independence, Georgetown, SC [Source: 'Marion, The Life of Gen. Francis Marion' by M. L. Weems, Ch.18]
