"The Federal Air Marshal Association filed suit today in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and Federal Air Marshal Director Thomas Quinn, challenging federal air marshal rules designed to prevent federal air marshals from speaking about any matter that pertains to the Federal Air Marshal Service, the Transportation Security Administration and the U.S. Department of Transportation."

"The lawsuit alleges that the Federal Air Marshal Service rules are an attempt to 'smother and prevent the disclosure of information by federal air marshals of agency mismanagement, fraud, waste and abuse.' "

"The U.S. House of Representatives acted properly this week to overwhelmingly reject an amendment to a spending bill that would have banned the export of .50-caliber rifles, said the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA)." ...

"'Congressional anti-gunners did the same thing when Glock introduced its polymer-framed pistol years ago, falsely claiming it to be an 'undetectable plastic gun' and the so-called 'weapon of choice of terrorists.' Today, that pistol rides in the holsters of a majority of American law enforcement officers, proving once again that the gun control crowd does not now, and never has, known what it's talking about."

NY: Advocates Call on Senate to Take Action Before End of Session

"60 local Police Chiefs and County Sheriffs from around New York State are supporting legislation introduced by Senator Frank Padavan (R-Queens) that would strengthen New York State’s current Assault Weapons. A letter listing Police Officers and Sheriffs who have signed on asking for a strong and effective ban has been delivered to Governor Pataki and all members of the New York State Senate. The New York State Assembly passed a similar measure on May 24th."

"New York State’s Assault Weapons Ban (modeled on the expired federal ban) prohibits the manufacture, transfer, and possession of 19 specific semiautomatic assault weapons, such as AK-47s, AR15s, MAC-10s, TEC-9s and UZIs. However, the gun industry, beginning in 1994 began to evade the law by making minor cosmetic changes to assault guns, renaming them, and marketing them as 'post-ban' models. Such copycat assault weapons are functionally identical to those banned by current NY law, which is why Police Chiefs and Sheriffs have called for strengthening New York’s ban, to close loopholes allowing such craven industry practices."

"The National Rifle Association wins again."

"Roswell has dropped plans to rewrite part of a gun law because the NRA's opposition to the change started a fight that city officials didn't want to be in."

"The city's law on discharging weapons says that citizens can use force to defend a 'person or property.' State law, which takes precedence in criminal matters, allows force only to defend a person."

"When the city tried to remove the reference to defending property, the NRA fired off a national alert, and its supporters complained to City Hall in a flood of calls and e-mails."

"Columbus City Council has announced its plans to move forward with an extensive rifle ban. Read for yourself the proposed ordinance language.

"This link takes you directly to a PDF at the City of Columbus website for a look at the ordinance text, and the city's (not PRO's) bullet item fact sheet stating why they think this ban is necessary."
