"Thousands of armed, undercover air marshals rushed into service since last year's terrorist attacks are flying carefully chosen missions, sometimes on an hour's notice because of a new terrorist threat."

"Although many planes still fly without a marshal, the odds of having a team on the right plane have improved."

"The program has grown from the nearly forgotten 32-person unit of Sept. 11 to a sprawling federal law enforcement agency ..."

"The program has its critics."

WILLIAMSBURG - "It could have been a scene from an action movie:"

"The morning quiet of a neighborhood is torn by a throbbing, chunka-chunka wall of sound. A small helicopter appears over the houses and lands in a vacant lot. A man darts out from behind a tree to hop in as the helicopter lifts off the ground."

"Then comes the crack of an assault rifle [sic -- AR15]. A man stands in the front door of his home shooting at what he thinks is a terrorist rendezvous."

"LA County prosecutors declined to file a misdemeanor battery charge against the 72 yr old ex-astronaut who said he was defending himself & his stepdaughter when he clocked the guy outside a hotel." [In Los Angeles, apparently self-defense is legal -- as long as you only use your fists.]

" 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, one of the best-known American pro wrestlers, is facing charges of beating his wife."

"The WW star faces a misdemeanor charge of assault causing bodily injury, with punishment ranging from probation up to 1 yr in jail."

"This is my first time in court, I'm sure it will work out just fine," Austin said.

"Austin is accused of hitting his wife on the head, back & legs."
-------------
HMM...Wonder what he means by 'I'm sure it will work out just fine." ???

QUESTION:
How is it that a hulk of a man beating a woman is only a misdemeanor, but the mere possession of certain inanimate objects (like an "unregistered" machinegun) is a felony?

"A 59-year-old Grand Haven man was convicted by a federal jury in Grand Rapids Thursday for possession of a machine gun, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice."

"Keith W. Nass, 1623 Colfax St., was convicted by a federal jury on two charges stemming from his possession of an unregistered Frankfort Arsenal, AR-15 type machine gun. The jury acquitted Nass on three counts stemming from his alleged possession of an unregistered Uzi machine gun pistol with a silencer."

"Nass was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal Service immediately following Thursday's conviction."

"The charges carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and/or fines from $10,000 to $250,000."

Nothing in this report mentions anything about criminal intent -- just enforcement of the unconstitutional ban on machineguns.

"Grand Haven Department of Public Safety officials turned over information to federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to investigate the case, and prosecutors sought the federal indictment because a conviction would prohibit Nass from ever again possessing a gun."

STAMFORD -- "The silent auction included a .22/.410-caliber combination rifle-shotgun. There was a raffle for a stainless-steel automatic. And a woman wearing a short, black dress walked through the banquet hall displaying a Browning single-shot rifle bearing the National Rifle Association insignia."

"Welcome to the NRA Foundation's eighth annual Fairfield County charity dinner."

"Last night's event raised $100,000 for gun safety programs for young people, organizers said. The NRA Foundation is separate from the NRA, and money stays within foundation programs, they said."

"With 500 guests, this year's dinner was the biggest, organizers said. Diners filled the main hall of the Italian Center of Stamford on Newfield Avenue, joined by several state and local Republican officials."
 

TX: NRA's Heston stumps for Attorney General John Cornyn in senatorial race

"Long after TV viewers found out who shot J.R., a group of gun-loving Republicans gathered at Southfork Ranch on Saturday to get actor Charlton Heston's take on another burning question: Who will be the next Texas senator?"

"The longtime gun activist and National Rifle Association president threw his weight behind Texas Attorney General John Cornyn at a breakfast fund-raiser that drew about 140 people to J.R. Ewing's 'Oil Baron's Ballroom,' situated on a green pasture a short ways from the infamous white house featured in the 1980s TV soap opera."

"Heston, who parted the Red Sea as Moses in 'The Ten Commandments,' is the latest high-profile supporter to help raise money for Cornyn in a tight race against former two-term Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk."

" 'I came to Texas to see that John Cornyn is elected to the United States Senate,' Heston said in a 50-second speech interrupted twice by applause. He praised Cornyn's support of the Second Amendment, the president and the military."

RELATED NEWS:
Cornyn supports more checks at gun shows:

"In the race to elect Texas' next senator, it's the moderate Democrat who says unlicensed sellers at gun shows don't need to run background checks on buyers, and the conservative Republican who says a law should be passed to give them more scrutiny."

"Republican John Cornyn supports more precautions for dealers at shows, and Democrat Ron Kirk opposes them."

Dear Mr. G:

NRA owns the trademark "TheArmedCitizen," which was registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on December 29, 1992, and assigned registration number 1,743,094. Federal law, at 15 U.S.C. 1-51, et seq. requites the owner of a trademark to defend the mark against unlicensed use. You are using "thearmedcitizen.com" which infringes our mark. We are prepared to offer you compensation for your out of pocket costs incurred in registering domain name, up to three hundred ($300.00) dollars. If you refuse to transfer the domain name to us for the amount we offered, we will file a complaint in arbitration under the Uniform Domain Names Resolution Policy adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICCON).

Please understand that we do not do this out of malice. We are required by law to protect our marks. I have examined the files and records of the NRA and find no record of a license granted to you to use the mark.

"Handshaking her way through the crowd lining Buena Vista's streets on Labor Day, Democrat Mimi Elrod sported a blaze-orange 'Sportsmen for Elrod' sticker."

"Anyone who paid attention to last year's governor's race might have recognized it as a replica of the 'Sportsmen for Warner' stickers and signs used by supporters of gubernatorial candidate Mark Warner last fall."

"Warner made it cool again for Democrats to like guns and their owners. His victory in the governor's race showed Democrats the necessity of appealing to the gun-rights supporters who make up a large portion of the voters in rural areas."

"Now the rural strategy that helped Warner win last fall is being replicated by other Democrats, both on a national level and on the local one."

Re "No Guns in Flight," by Dave Barger, the president of JetBlue Airways (Op-Ed, Sept. 17):

With due respect to Mr. Barger, his desk is not in danger of being hijacked, flown into a building or shot down by one of our own military jets. My "desk" is.

As an airline captain, I, most of my colleagues, the majority of the American public and most law enforcement groups think that the safest way to prevent future tragedies is to have pilots, trained and armed, on the flight deck.

Are there problems to be worked out? Not insurmountable ones. Many of us are former military pilots, familiar with the safe use of firearms; others can be trained.

I agree with Mr. Barger that "the arguments against guns in the cockpit are overwhelming." But the arguments for guns are even more overwhelming.

The last thing I want to do is to carry a weapon to work, but it is the first thing that needs to be done to ensure that our flights return home safely.

We are the last line of defense.

"Roughly two out of every 100 applicants who applied to purchase a firearm last year were rejected after a background check, and a smaller percentage was arrested, federal statistics released Sunday showed."

"In real numbers, 151,000 out of nearly 7.6 million applicants -- or 1.9 percent -- were rejected after checks by the FBI or state and local agencies, according to the Justice Department."

"About 1,900 were arrested, according to the findings compiled by the department's Bureau of Justice Statistics. The department has been making checks since the federal Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act went into effect in 1994."

From this report:
Permit rejections

• 72 percent: Felony convictions, indictments, domestic violence misdemeanor convictions, restraining orders

• 7.5 percent: State or local law prohibitions

• 6 percent: Fugitive

• 1 percent: Mental illness or disability

• 1 percent: Drug addiction

• 12.5 percent: Other reasons, such as having a dishonorable discharge from the armed services or being an illegal alien

WEST BURLINGTON — "Another metaphorical bullet is expected to fly Monday when the City Council considers an ordinance banning guns from municipal buildings."

"The ordinance would make it a crime to carry a weapon or firearm into 'any structure, dwelling, garage or shelter owned, leased or otherwise occupied by the city.' Violators could receive up to 30 days in prison and a $200 fine."

"Council member John E. Johnson pushed for the ban in August, claiming the measure was needed to ensure safety."

"Johnson's proposal met angry resistance from local gun owners and from fellow council member Dan Hockett, who has a firearm permit and has admitted to bringing a gun to at least one council meeting."
