Banovac said she even offered to strip for security to prove there's nothing there, but a spokeswoman for the Will Rogers World Airport said TSA agents aren't allowed to remove clothing from an individual, and unless the issue can be resolved some other way, a person deemed suspicious or alarming isn't allowed to board a flight.

"This is the most ridiculous sky security theatrics imaginable," said Banovac.

Submitter's note: TSA did cavity searches on 3 y.o. boys and a teen girl traveling alone.

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller just picked a fight he can’t win, legally, or politically. On December 29, 2010 Miller’s staff issued a letter to Des Moines County Pat Jackson encouraging him to advise Des Moines County supervisors to violate Iowa’s firearm preemption statute.

According to Pierce, open carry at city hall meetings is legal and increasingly common in many or most states . . . “They will organize and attend city hall meetings to speak out against any effort to enact illegal local gun bans, and expect them to be legally carrying properly holstered handguns concealed or openly when they speak,” . . .

A Puerto Rico man accused of attacking his family with gasoline and a blowtorch has been charged with murder after two of his alleged victims died from their wounds.

Forty-five-year-old Justino Sanchez Diaz had been arrested on attempted-murder charges for the New Year's Day attack. But the island Justice Department announced Monday that a 17-year-old niece and 32-year-old cousin of Sanchez have died from their burns. Seven others are injured.

Two Seattle residents, Kate Donahue and Jesus Sanchez, are among the injured. Sanchez is Diaz's nephew, according to family members, and the couple from Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood had recently gotten engaged.

Police say the arrested man sprinkled gasoline around a room Saturday at

It's an application that makes it easy to report things you think might not be on the up and up.

Reinighaus says "We didn't want citizens to have to take a passive role any longer to the government and the war on terror."

The app taps into federal tip lines. It lets you make reports, using pre-loaded forms, in any of several categories such as "National Security Threats," "Suspicious Activity," and "Government Waste." You can even include photos and/or video. The app then routes your report to the appropriate government agency like the FBI, Centers for Disease Control or the Environmental Protection Agency.

Some have already nicknamed "The Patriot App" the "Snitch App." Reinighaus says he realizes some may be tempted to use the

A gun rights group behind legislation to allow concealed weapon permit holders to carry a gun openly likely will ask lawmakers to specifically authorize permit holders to carry a gun on a college campus, its chairman said today.

Steve D. Jones, chairman of Arkansas Carry, made the comment to the Arkansas News Bureau after being told by the director of the state Department of Higher Education that a 2003 attorney general’s opinion said colleges and universities could legally ban all concealed weapons from their campuses as long as signs are posted.

The defense authorization bill also contains a gun-control section that prohibits the defense secretary from requiring military personnel or civilian Defense Department employees to register privately owned guns stored in their homes outside military installations. It seems that in the wake of the Fort Hood shooting, a Defense Department independent review recommended a look at registering privately owned firearms by military personnel. Commanders of several bases, including Fort Campbell, Ky., and Fort Bliss, Tex., required registration of guns of personnel living off post. At Fort Riley, Kan., regulations required registration of guns owned not only by military personnel living off base but also by family members living in Kansas.

Legislators meet today to repeal a weapons ban that has been in effect at the State House and connected buildings for the past year.

The joint Legislative Facilities Committee is expected vote on a measure that would remove language banning anyone but active law enforcement from carrying a deadly weapon.

A separate House rule up for a vote on Wednesday will bar display of deadly weapons by anyone other than a police officer but would allow the use of a deadly weapon in the "exercise of self-defense or defense of others."

Anti-Gun Politicians In Senate Seek Rules Changes

The reason we are not stuck with bans on semi-autos, gun shows and ammunition is because the U.S. Senate is structured so that whatever party is in the minority still retains procedural power to protect the rights of the citizenry against the “tyranny of the majority.”

But on January 5, 2011, at the beginning of the new Congress, Senate Democrats are hatching a plan to decimate long-standing Senate rules in order to remove those protections.

The linchpin of the plan would be a ruling by Senate President Joe Biden that the Senate is not a “continuing body” and therefore has NO rules — other than whatever 53 Democrats and Independents might unilaterally adopt.
 

OH: Court Upholds State Law Limiting City Gun Control

The Ohio Supreme Court reversed a ruling that struck down a state law preserving Ohioans' right to bear arms, finding that the legislation did not trample on the home-rule powers of cities like Cleveland with gun laws.
The Ohio General Assembly passed an ordinance in 2006 holding that only federal or state regulations could limit Second Amendment rights.
Cleveland filed suit against the state since the new ordinance would wipe out Cleveland's gun laws, including regulations on children's access to firearms, handgun registration, possession and sale of assault weapons, and possession of weapons in public places or on private property.

President Obama’s newest appointee to the ATF has spent his long career with the agency espousing numerous and varied gun control and anti-gun activities, among them calling for the repeal of the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the use of the ATF’s firearms database to criminal investigations, and who has regularly conflated black market automatic weapons with legal semi-automatic "assault-style" rifles. This has occurred with such regularity that upon hearing of Travers’ appointment, Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Institute to Prevent Gun Violence, was moved to say: "This long-needed appointment is welcome news.”

It’s been ten years since Rev. Kenn Blanchard launched the URL, BlackManWithAGun.com.

The provocative website announced a pro-gun primer of the same name that has been a stalwart introduction to gun rights from the view point of an African American firearms instructor for ten years. Blanchard has been involved in almost every event in the last ten years involving a person of color and gun legislation in the United States. He is a sought after resource for historical knowledge on the racist roots of gun control and common sense solutions for people that fear guns.

In fact, two years after District residents had their right to keep and bear arms restored by the Supreme Court, the homicide rate for Washington, D.C., was the lowest it’s been in half a century. “The District finished 2010 with 131 homicides — a 9 percent reduction from 2009 and the lowest number of killings in the nation’s capital since 1963,” reports the Washington Times. “The drop, from 143 killings, was the second straight decline and the seventh time in the last 10 years that the city once referred to as the ‘murder capital’ of the U.S. recorded fewer than 200 homicides.”

Why should visitors to the N.H. Statehouse, including our school children who regularly visit, be exposed to guns and potential violence/harm while visiting the Statehouse?

We are writing to publicly urge all of the representatives of District 13 — Exeter, Stratham and North Hampton — as well as all of the state representatives representing other towns throughout the state, to vote against the rule change that will be brought before the House in the next couple of weeks. The House majority, which is currently held by the Republican Party by approximately three to one, has currently decided to change a rule that has been in place in the Statehouse since 1971.

Rep. Dean Kaufert, R-Neenah, meanwhile, circulated a bill Monday to clarify that home owners could use deadly force against an intruder.

"Voters put their trust in Republicans based on their promise to focus on economic development," Rep. Kelda Helen Roys, D-Madison, said in a statement. "Now it appears Republicans aren't even interested in pretending to care about people out of work."

Kleefisch said his staff had time-released his bills for Monday morning, and stressed that they wouldn't be formerly introduced until Republicans pass their jobs agenda. He said Democrats are frustrated because they're so deep in the minority that they can't block anything.

After hearing that legislators in Texas and perhaps other states will again try to change the law to force colleges to allow students to bring loaded concealed weapons into classrooms, I would like to share my point of view as someone who has experienced gun violence in a class firsthand.

I survived the shooting at Virginia Tech in 2007. Student Seung-Hui Cho shot me in my hips, shoulder and knee. I've recovered from my injuries and I have come away with new perspectives on life and our country.

This year showing your support for the right to bear arms, hunting raccoons or ending big government might be as easy as backing out of your garage.

A handful of South Carolina lawmakers have recently pre-filed legislation that would allow the state DMV to issue several new specialized license plates.

Among about a dozen others, some of the special tags would read “Don’t Tread on Me;” “Second Amendment;” “Coon Hunters;” and “Largemouth Bass.” Perhaps the one most likely to get you out of a speeding ticket, however, would be the proposed “South Carolina Highway Patrol – Retired” plate.
