"An armed Internal Revenue Service agent was arrested last night after making obscene comments to two other passengers while going to their seats on a Southwest Airlines flight in Louisville, an airport spokeswoman said."

"Brandon N. Fox, 24, who is from Chicago, had proper clearance to carry his gun, said Rande Swann, spokeswoman for Louisville International Airport."

"But about 8:25 p.m., on Chicago-bound Flight 2524, he made a 'very obscene' comment to a female passenger who had said he was holding others up while storing his luggage overhead, Swann said."

"When the passenger's fiance asked him to apologize, Fox made a similar crude comment to him, Swann said."

"The couple complained, and the captain ordered Fox off the plane, saying he didn't want an unruly, armed passenger on the plane, according to the arrest record."

" 'The pilot has the prerogative to have somebody removed from the flight,' Swann said."

"Airport police removed Fox, and he was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He was still in the Jefferson County jail late last night."

"The incident marked the fourth time in a week that Brooklyn cops shot and killed a suspect in unrelated confrontations."

Meanwhile, the average person who wants to carry a firearm for self-defense in NYC, against a knife-wielding attacker who offers "no way to back away from the confrontation" is simply out of luck and must use his/her hands to defend against the attack -- or face a possible felony conviction for having the audacity to exercise the right to keep and bear arms in self-defense.

"It's not an individual freedom from government suppression, or even a right of states to have arms that can protect them against the federal government (Wills rejects that argument, too). Rather, it's an affirmative entitlement to a form of government subsidy. Quite a remarkable reading of the phrase 'the right of the people to keep and bear arms....'

And too, an economic collapse is occurring on W's watch that may rival the one that made FDR desperate to have Japan attack us."

" 'Some women have had guns in their house for years, and now with all the stuff going on in Baton Rouge they are getting their husbands to teach them how to use them,' said Alvin Palmer, an NRA certified instructor registered with the state."

"This is a bad idea, said Palmer, who teaches gun safety courses in Mandeville." [emphasis added]

"Men armed with guns and machetes killed a leading lawyer and outspoken government critic and his wife in southeast Nigeria, police said Tuesday."

"Police spokesman Haz Iwendi said Barnabas Igwe, the Nigerian Bar Association's local chairman, and his wife, Abigail Amaka Igwe, were killed late Sunday as they drove through the market city of Onitsha, in Anambra state."

" 'He was coming home from a meeting when a group of guys accosted them,' Iwendi said. 'They shot them several times and then tried to mutilate the bodies.' "

"Chuka Obele Chuka, the bar association's vice chairman in Onitsha, accused government-sponsored vigilantes, who call themselves the Bakassi Boys, of killing Igwe."

These same "Bakassi Boys" have been a handy excuse for gun confiscations: "Nigeria's police force began cracking down on the Bakassi Boys last month. They raided five bases in neighboring Abia state, arresting 33 vigilantes, freeing 46 illegally held prisoners and seizing stockpiles of guns and ammunition." Fair trial by jury? Nah.

"No precise figures are available, but court officers seize thousands of weapons at the entrances to city courthouses each year. Ranging from the ingenious to the scary, all the items are potentially deadly in courthouses, where emotions run high."

" 'A lot of people carry knives or fake guns for protection. It's a way of life,' said Maj. Mark Bodde, the top-ranked court officer at Bronx Supreme Court, the landmark just up from Yankee Stadium on the Grand Concourse at 161st St."

" 'When they come to the courthouse for jury duty or on other business,' he said, 'they forget the weapon is in the bottom of their bag or pocket. And they forget it's illegal.' " [emphasis added]

"Around midnight, looking out his window after a recent storm, Jim Adams saw the tiny beams of light in his cow pasture."

" 'It wasn't much of a moon, but I could faintly see shadows moving in my field,' Adams recounted."

"He grabbed his rifle, went outside and confronted intruders who had come on to his pasture not to rustle his cows but to make off with mushrooms."

"Crouched with their flashlights over piles of manure, they were seeking 'magic mushrooms' -- psychedelic fungi that sprout in cow dung after the rain."

"As Adams raced toward them, the trespassers dashed back to their truck parked nearby. ;Hey, I saw you climb through my fence!' he hollered at them. 'You were trespassing.' "

" 'No, sir,' one replied. 'We were just taking a walk in the neighborhood.' " ...

The indictments were issued when undercover investigations resulted in handgun 'Completion Certificates' being issued without the required handgun training as the law requires. Since the Kentucky CCDW (carrying concealed deadly weapons) license, and the Tennessee Handgun Permit are sent by federal mail, the individuals were charged with mail fraud."

"The United States began its journey toward becoming a world power with a rather unique premise -- that citizens were actually capable of self-government. What a concept! This was radical thinking in the prevalent social thought of 1776 and even more so today. Imagine the nerve and personal commitment on the part of the Founding Fathers when they took the dramatic and even life threatening steps of cutting the bonds of rule by a king and other disconnected political agents. They established a new nation based on the notion of personal liberty, personal responsibility and personal accountability."

"During the 1990's, states started to enact Right To Carry Laws. Now, 32 states have laws allowing citizens to carry weapons. Men still hold the highest number of permits or licenses but, women have increased their percentage dramatically. What has changed the most over the years regarding women, is that they are know more knowledgeable regarding what type of handgun they want to buy and carry."
