Most Swiss men carry out annual military service until the age of 40 and keep their automatic rifle at home, but incidents involving army rifles are rarely reported.

Shooting rampages are virtually unheard of in Switzerland, and there was palpable sense of shock even among Swiss journalists reporting on the incident.

Since the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, the Federal Aviation Administration and various politicians have tried to assure nervous travelers it is still safe to fly.

But the FAA's own data reveal that the security firms hired by airlines have a dismal track record of detecting weapons, some of which are far more bulky -- and deadly -- than the boxcutters and knives that hijackers used to commandeer four airplanes Sept 11.

What they missed was a razor sharp, six inch military knife, a four inch non-folding carbon composite dagger, a four inch steel bladed folding knife and a concealed triangular bladed defense knife. ...

The entire arsenal had been placed in my suitcase in less than three minutes - most of it in plain sight - and got through. This, under intense security screening after the largest terrorist attack in U.S. history.

Mandatory National ID Cards... for our Politicians (Humour?)

"...A mere glance at their hologram IDs would tell a cop in a second what they were up to. And if they had no card to hand over, haul them away on treason. Since only the unpatriotic would ever object to surrendering freedom, I have a proposal of my own:

ID cards for politicians only.

I'm not implying our elected officials can't be trusted, mind you. When was the last time you heard a politician lie? My suggestion is offered in the spirit of security and national unity." --George Smith

GOA Alerts -- Remind them that guns save lives. Remind them that a pilot who wants to crash a plane doesn't need a gun to do it -- so it's foolish to prevent them from having the tools they need to protect the lives of their passengers.

Canada's commercial airline pilots are fliers, not gunfighters, and should not carry firearms in their cockpits, says the country's largest pilots' union.

Despite a call from U.S. commercial pilots yesterday for a right to bear arms aloft, the 3,600-strong Air Canada Pilots Association is rejecting the idea of carrying guns on board their airplanes.

"In a word, no, it's not our position that Air Canada pilots be armed," says Peter Foster, the association's safety and security expert.

On a shooting range designed to simulate a jetliner cabin, two masked men jump from their seats and practice firing semiautomatic pistols without hitting anything but their paper and metal targets.

The men are air marshals and someday may need their sharpshooting skills to take out hijackers without hitting civilians.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms. Tench Coxe in `Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution' under the Pseudonym "A Pennsylvanian" in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789 at 2 col. 1.
