"The overwrought fears of American gun owners are bollixing up the war on terrorism. Arms move easily in a globalized world, and until that world comes together to stem their flow, new weapons and the ordnance left over from old wars will continue to fall into our enemies' hands."

-------
It figures they'd find a way to blame those who treasure their freedoms for the failure of the "war on terrorism" instead of the ineptitude of power-hungry bureaucrats.

"Maryland has denied a physically disabled citizen a permit to carry a concealed handgun because he does not have a 'good and substantial reason' to be armed." ...

"What Sullivan calls his 'visually obvious physical disability' makes him an attractive target for criminals, he believes. It also makes it almost impossible for him to flee or physically defend himself from an assault. Despite those facts, Maryland State Police denied Sullivan a permit for a concealed handgun."

" 'If you're in trouble, threatened, and the police can't come to help you because they don't have a vehicle, then you can't really be blamed for wanting to hang on to a weapon for your own protection.' "

Armed Pilots Update from APSA

"The TSA is charged with implementing the armed pilot law and, even though much of their discretion has been removed, the TSA STILL HAS VERY BROAD DISCRETION on how the program will be constructed. APSA has had numerous meetings with the TSA."...

"Here are some concerns:

* The TSA might enact UNREASONABLE SCREENING STANDARDS for FFDO's that are EVEN MORE RESTRICTIVE THAN THOSE USED FOR FEDERAL AIR MARSHALS (FAM's).

* The TSA might VIOLATE THE PRIVACY RIGHTS AND ENDANGER THE JOBS OF FFDO CANDIDATES by providing the FAA and/or the airlines with results from FFDO screening evaluations.

* The TSA might create A TRAINING PROGRAM THAT IS EXCESSIVELY LONG and covers subject areas that are outside of the narrow focus of the FFDO: Defending the cockpit of an airliner.

* There are no limits in the law on how quickly the TSA must deputize all pilots that are successfully trained and screened, or how quickly the training must be accomplished if a pilot volunteers to be an FFDO. THE TSA CAN DRAG ITS FEET INDEFINITELY AND STILL REMAIN WITHIN THE LETTER OF THE LAW."

"The available evidence on gun control to date suggests that we can gain -- and have gained -- substantial benefits in community safety." -- Just look at how gun control has affected crime in England!

"Strengthening controls over handguns, rifles and shotguns appears to be producing the intended results." -- If those results include leaving the populace disarmed and vulnerable to armed thugs.

"Consider, as well, the relatively minimal social intrusion of gun licensing and registration -- practices that we don't even question for automobiles." -- This registration can only be used to confiscate your property when guns are finally completely outlawed. It's no big deal.
