"If you've had concerns about security as you buckled yourself into an airline seat, here's an uncomfortable fact: the pilots sitting in the cockpit are perhaps more concerned than you are."

"The Coalition of Airline Pilots Associations points to the recent arrest of a Russian man in possession of more than 1,300 counterfeit law enforcement badges, saying the government's failure to modernize airport identification technology poses a serious threat to the flying public."

"The coalition cites published reports that the high-quality fakes were discovered along with New York Police Department uniforms, semiautomatic rifles and the used casing from a shoulder-fired missile. The badges, imported from Taiwan, skillfully mimic those of the FBI, Drug Enforcement Agency and NYPD, among others." ...

"Some Senate Republicans are preparing to launch an assault on the District's gun laws."

"Senators Kay Bailey Hutchison and John Cronyn of Texas and George Allen of Virginia are signing on as sponsors of the District of Columbia Personal Protection Act of 2005."

"The measure would repeal the District's prohibition against most private handgun ownership. It's similar to a measure with 123 co-sponsors in the House."

"Supporters of the measure say the legislation will restore the Second Amendment rights of District residents guaranteed by the Constitution." ...

Submitter's Note: And it will also conveniently sidestep the possibility of a pending lawsuit from being heard by the Supreme Court and getting a definitive ruling on the Second Amendment.

gun victims, the House Judiciary Committee in a near party line vote defeated an amendment that would have protected the right of police officers to bring lawsuits against negligent gun sellers." ...

"In June 2004, two former New Jersey police officers ... shot in the line of duty with a trafficked gun negligently sold by a West Virginia dealer, obtained a $1 million settlement. The dealer had sold the gun, along with 11 other handguns, in a cash sale to a straw buyer for a gun trafficker. After the lawsuit, the dealer, as well as two other area pawnshops, implemented safer practices to prevent sales to traffickers, including a new policy of ending large- volume sales of handguns." ...

"Gun rights supporters claim that gun control contains a 'slippery slope' that gradually but inexorably results in erosion of civil rights. They point to examples like USSR, China, and Nazi Germany as examples where disarmament proceeded government-sponsored genocide against the people living in those countries."

"In early 2005, the British government enacted The Criminal Justice Act of 2003, which allows a previously acquitted person to be retried if 'new and compelling' evidence is produced. Citing the unresolved sexual assault/murder of a young woman in 1989, the government claimed the new law will enable them to retry the accused 'if evidence such as DNA material, new witnesses or a confession came to light.' ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Police are trying to figure out if a man in his late 30s who showed up a convenience store bleeding from at least three gunshot wounds is a victim or a suspect.

The man drove himself to a Diamond Shamrock at the intersection of Timber View and Culebra Road at 4 a.m. suffering from gunshot wounds to his face and upper chest.

He told police that he was shot at a home nearby.

But the occupants of the home told a different story.

They told police the man showed up at their home armed with a handgun and tried to kick in a door, and in self-defense they shot him with a .22-caliber rifle.

The man was transported to University Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been filed against the homeowners.

"Instructions from the health ministry encourage GPs and hospital doctors to carry a weapon for their protection alongside more traditional medical tools in what is the latest illustration of the breakdown of law and order in the country.

"... There is nothing in the present law regarding bullets, whether they are allowed in the vehicle and where and what transpires if individuals find an unloaded weapon and bullets together."

"The new law does not really address the situation whereby someone is sitting in a parking lot for a lengthy period of time with a loaded gun. Permit or no permit, the idea of loaded guns on school property is a scary one." ...

"The Kosciusko Police Department will be ready if there's a similar shootout here. The department acquired a dozen rifles -- eight M-14s and four M-16s -- in a military surplus property sale. Every patrol car will be equipped with one of the high-powered rifles, Police Chief R.J. Adams said."

"'This is an important addition to the KPD arsenal,' Adams said, because officers will now have the ability to handle situations in which a shotgun or handgun wouldn't be sufficient." ...

"They said Maj. Gregory McMillion and many other troops, including his commanding officer, misunderstood a standing order against personal use of captured or abandoned property in 2003. Troops in Iraq commonly displayed war booty in the early days of the conflict, they argued." ...

"The images of the killings by the U.S.-armed and U.N.-trained Police Nationale de Haiti (PNH) are stark and undeniable. Peaceful demonstrators slaughtered in cold-blood as the U.N. pontificates and postures to justify its role in legitimizing the coup in February 2004 against the democratically elected government of Jean-Bertrand Aristide."

"On February 28, 2005, the first anniversary of the coup against the constitutional government, the PNH fired at unarmed demonstrators as the U.N. stood by. Video footage and photographs from that day show the U.N. was close enough to see the police open fire on peaceful demonstrators, yet unexplainably, not close enough to do anything about it." ...

Dressed in their finest silk handkerchiefs, wide-brimmed hats and flamboyant leather vests, they greet each other by their noms de guerre: One-Eyed Pete, Frisco Red, Sassafras Kid."

"The Minnesota House today passed a measure that would allow sane, law-abiding Minnesotans to get a permits to carry loaded weapons in public."

"The 86-47 vote sends the bill to Gov. Tim Pawlenty for his signature. He is expected to sign the bill, which is essentially a reenactment of a 2003 gun permit law that the state Appeals Court overturned last month. The Minnesota Senate passed the measure last week."

"The House debate on the bill was sedate and, at less than three hours, rather short given the controversy surrounding it. But that may be largely because representatives knew the bill would pass."

"Opponents offered nine changes to the measure but none passed." ...

"'It's the history more than the gun,' Stuard explained. "From my first recollection, I've always been interested in the Civil War.'" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She well knows that by one enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom. — JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (1821)
