"A former police officer, whose sons were murdered, has called for a halt to the trade in deactivated guns - which can easily be turned into live-firing weapons."

"Steve Walker's sons, Andrew, 26, and his half-brother Alex Woodcraft, 17, were found shot dead at a flat in Lincoln in August."

"They had been murdered by Jeremy Earls, 34, who used an Israeli-made Uzi nine-millimetre gun - which he bought legally as a deactivated model and then restored to full working order."

"...the White House recommended giving pilots lockboxes for the weapons so they won't be left in the cockpit. It also said only pilots who volunteer to carry weapons and receive extensive training should be armed."

"Al Aitken, a pilot speaking for the 14,500-member union representing American Airlines pilots, which supports arming pilots, said the 87-6 vote meant the Senate recognized that all the security layers the administration is putting into place are still inadequate."

"INDIVIDUAL privacy is being eroded in Britain to a far greater extent than in other developed countries, according to an international study of state surveillance in the year since September 11."

"Many states have rushed through restrictive anti-terrorism and security laws in response to last year’s terrorist attacks, but the Blair Government is singled out for an anti-privacy 'pathology' that the report claims is leading to mass surveillance of the population."

Maybe Sarah Brady can fly over there and take advantage of yet another tragedy in a gun-free society by promoting knife control.
-------
FULL TEXT BELOW...
-------
"A knife-wielding man claiming he was driven by voices urging him to kill slashed 10 young children yesterday in a church school cafeteria in the South Korean capital, police said."

" 'A deranged man rushed into the church cafeteria and slashed nine children who were having lunch,' the detective in charge of the case said by telephone. 'Some of the kids are seriously injured.' "

"The man picked up two kitchen knives from the table and began attacking the children, aged four to seven, witnesses told police."

"One child was in a critical condition with a stab wound in the head, said police Lieutenant Kim Sa-yeon."

"The man, whom police identified only by his last name Hwang, told authorities that he heard voices on Tuesday night telling him that he would be killed unless he killed many people."

" 'He said he was haunted by somebody else who tried to kill him. We are investigating him now,' a police officer said."

SOLUTION
A bullet would quiet those pesky 'voices'.

"More than seven months after a drunken Provo party on the eve of the 2002 Olympics involving U.S. Secret Service agents and several college women who were too young to drink legally, a single misdemeanor charge has been filed against only one of the agents."

"The three men, part of a massive Olympic security detail, were sent home and given desk jobs immediately after the boisterous Feb. 1 revelry inside a Provo motel room, during which one of the off-duty agents allegedly threatened to shoot a motel manager."

" 'I asked him not to push me, and he told me that he could because he was a federal agent,' Clements said. Later the agent allegedly told Clements that if he complained again, 'he would throw me to the ground, put his gun to my head, and I would be sorry.' "

Foreign Airlines Criticize American Plan to Arm Pilots
Submitted by: Doug Charette

"Foreign-owned airlines, noting that many countries don't allow handguns, criticized a U.S. plan to let commercial airline pilots carry weapons in the cockpit."

"The International Air Transport Association, which represents U.S. and foreign-owned airlines, opposes arming flight crews with lethal weapons."

" 'What's going to happen when you land in a country that doesn't allow guns?' asked Wanda Warner, the association's spokeswoman. 'How is this going to work when American Airlines lands in London or United lands in Rome?' "

"Pilots and aviation officials in Sweden, Norway and Denmark dismissed the idea, saying suspected terrorists should be stopped before they get on the plane."

OK, THEN...

Would these anti-rights politicos rather we let domestic U.S. pilots carry firearms, but require international pilots to be defenseless? If so, simple logic suggests that the international flights will be the softest targets. Is that what these people want?

"Two masked men burst in just as he was closing up, acting on information provided by their getaway driver, the court heard."

"Had it not been for his sense of duty the victim would not have been at work as he had felt ill and came in due to staff shortages."

"For £4,000 in cash and £4,000 in store vouchers the raiders left assistant manager Carlton Maxwell-Clarke bleeding to death."

"A man [animal rights activist] who was mauled by a grizzly bear near West Yellowstone Aug. 25 went from the hospital to an Idaho jail, where he is awaiting shipment to Ohio on multiple charges of failing to pay child support."

[Firearms are banned from National Parks -- unless you are a government employee.]

"The man identified himself as Jesshua Amun at the time of the mauling, but police in Butler County, Ohio, know him as Jeffrey Scheu, a jailer at the Bonneville County (Idaho) Jail said Thursday."

"A Bonneville County sheriff's deputy arrested Scheu, 36, at the hospital Tuesday after Ohio law enforcement officials contacted the sheriff's office."

"Scheu is wanted on six counts of failing to pay child support in Ohio."

"He and three other members of the Buffalo Field Campaign, a group that protests state and federal actions that harass or kill bison when they leave Yellowstone National Park, had been tracking a bull bison north of West Yellowstone that day when they surprised the bear."

"Scheu, who tried to run from the bear, suffered a badly mauled face and needed hundreds of stitches to close the wounds. His companions escaped unharmed."

"A Medford hunter convicted of second-degree manslaughter was sentenced to six years and three months in prison for the shooting death of a hunting partner last November."

"Jackson County Circuit Judge Patricia Crain gave Ryan Leon Wilson, 41, the minimum sentence for second-degree manslaughter set out in Measure 11 sentencing guidelines."

"He also must spend three years under post-prison supervision and must pay $3,500 in criminal victim’s compensation to help cover funeral expenses of the man he killed, Donald Hauser, 34, of White City."

"Wilson and seven friends were hunting for blacktail deer near Butte Falls Nov. 4 when Wilson thought he heard and glimpsed a deer headed up a steep, forested hillside behind him and to his right."

"He called out to other hunters to determine their positions, and after two hunters shouted back, he fired his .338-caliber rifle without looking through the scope. Wilson testified during his trial last week that then he heard fellow hunter Hauser yell, 'You killed me.' "

"Wilson shouted for help, then dropped his rifle and fled into the woods. He was arrested at his home in Medford the next day and voluntarily spent time in a psychiatric ward before being indicted on manslaughter charges. A jury convicted him Aug. 28 at the conclusion of a two-day trial."

QUESTION:

What kind of "friend" would flee the scene of an injured hunting partner?

Is that the kind of "friend" this man wants to meet in prison?

"Andrew B. Tuchsen is charged with firing into an occupied dwelling, and more charges might be added, sheriff's spokesman Lt. John Steely said. Bail has been set at $200,000."

"Just two days before the shooting, Tuchsen pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor counts of making criminal threats and reckless driving in connection with a February road-rage incident in Twain Harte."

"He had been driving behind a Twain Harte couple when he rear-ended their car, then got out and threatened to kill them, according to investigators."

"He was charged with two felonies of assault with a deadly weapon and making threats."

"In a plea bargain, he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and making threats."

"He was sentenced to 70 days in county jail and was to start serving his time in November."

Fraternal Order of Police Whines for Cops-Only National Concealed Carry

The Fraternal Order of Police is whimpering about how their National Cops-Only Concealed Carry Bill -- S.2480 -- isn't moving fast enough.

Steve Young, National President of the F.O.P., is upset that Senator Durbin (D-IL) isn't asking "how high" when he says jump. Says Young, "The National Fraternal Order of Police will be working with the more than 35,000 members of the Illinois State Lodge to persuade Mr. Durbin to be more sensitive to the public safety implications of
the legislation."

Sounds like a bit of a threat to me. 35,000 cops to "persuade," huh, Steve?

Unfortunately, Mr. Young's F.O.P. membership in Illinois is comprised of far too many police officers who oppose concealed carry in their own back yard. In other words, he's using anti-gunowner cops -- officers who throw gunowners in jail for carrying a firearm on their own streets and who oppose decriminalization of concealed carry so Illinois citizens can have a fighting chance against street rats -- to try to extend the EXEMPTION PRIVILEGES for the very same public "servants" who violate their oaths and abuse their own local people.

WHY GUN OWNERS SHOULD OPPOSE THIS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, ELITIST TRAVESTY:

"Washington has done a startling and politically gutless turnabout on guns in the cockpit."

"There are two plausible explanations for this baffling change of sentiment, both alarming. Either Congress and the administration have become so complacent about security a year after the Sept. 11 terror attacks that they are now willing to play politics on a serious security issue by succumbing to the powerful gun lobby, or they have become so unsure of their ability to carry out their own program for protecting the flying public that they are giving up and accepting a reckless alternative."

"President Bush must assert leadership here, and reassure travelers that neither politics nor a sense of helplessness has overtaken the federal effort to secure the skies. He should veto the gun measure if it reaches his desk. The reasons that his administration initially opposed arming pilots are still sound."

"As the expert on every subject, the VPC, of course, knows what's best."

(Apparently almost everyone is tired of the nonsense from the VPC.)

"Gun shop owners want the government to stop making life easy for criminals and start helping retailers protect themselves."

"Nick Barlas, owner of Nick's Sport Shop on Yonge and Wellesley Sts., said it's the government's tough gun control laws, not robbers, which keep him from defending himself."

" 'They're not protecting me, they're protecting the criminals,' he said."

"Registration laws have gotten stricter on regular gun-toting citizens since Bill C-68 was implemented in 1995."

"Barlas said he isn't surprised when any shop is robbed these days."

"Shop owners in countries like the United States, where gun control laws are much more lenient, are in a far better position to protect themselves."

" 'If a robber knows you have a gun under your store counter, he's not gonna come in.' "

"Patricia Interdonato, owner of Giovanni's Gun Shop on Wilson Ave., agrees -- but after being robbed three times, she doesn't take any chances."

"Now she won't let anybody through the store's locked gated door without seeing a gun owner's licence. 'Maybe they should follow my example,' she said of other gun stores."

"David Austin, spokesman for the Canadian Firearms Association, said that shop owners are always welcome to apply for a permit that allows them to carry a gun."

"Police and community advocates hope people see this as a deal they can't pass up: Turn in a gun and get $50 in gift certificates for groceries and gas."

"It will be a 1-day special, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Detroit Police 7th (Mack) Precinct. Anyone from anywhere who brings in an unloaded gun to the precinct at 3300 Mack Ave. will receive a $25 certificate for gas and a $25 certificate for groceries, redeemable at several local businesses."

POSSIBILITY...

If you live in the area, you might be able to outbid the government on some decent firearms.

" 'The best safety device you have is your brain, eyes and ears,' said Ginger Ford, a community safety activist. 'The next best is to have nosy neighbors.' "

"Ford said she's even considering getting rid of the tear gas/pepper spray she carries on her key chain because the liability outweighs the safety benefits."

" 'I think it can be used against me,' she said."

"Criticisms of law enforcement officials unfairly targeting Muslims and Arab Americans after the Sept. 11 attacks are valid, the head of the FBI's Philadelphia office said yesterday."

"The bureau has from 7,000 to 8,000 agents working on counterterrorism, Lampinski said." ...
