"Daily for the past three years, passengers at U.S. airports surrendered an average of 14,000 potential weapons. That is enough to arm every passenger on 33 filled-to-capacity Boeing 747 jumbo jets — every day."

"Despite intensifying concern about terrorism since the 9/11 attacks, the rate of finding such items is actually increasing. It rose from about 11 potential weapons surrendered per 1,000 originating passengers in 2003 to more than 12 last year."

"We can't really speculate why people keep bringing prohibited items,"

"That measure would have allowed gun owners to trade-in a hunting rifle or small handgun for a military-style assault weapon without delay."

"A third bill would have overridden local laws regulating the transport of firearms."

"Between September and May, Stahl plans to visit area middle schools. During the summer, he's been conducting the program on a semiweekly basis at the court building with youths who have had problems."

"He tells youths in his classes that 2,200 kids under 18 died from bullet wounds in 2000."

"He tells youths in his classes that 13,053 kids under 18 were injured by firearms and that 16,182 were injured by BB or pellet guns in 2002."

"Yet Stahl isn't completely against guns -- he was the chief of the Munroe Falls police department for 26 years and has weapons in his own home. He is just pushing safety."

"In Northeast Mississippi this past week, there were children playing with guns. Not just any guns – double barreled shotguns."

"They were out shooting guns with each other, firing hundreds of rounds each and enjoying themselves. While these kids were out playing with their guns their parents were also proud of them." ...

"It’s an anti-gun activist’s worst nightmare, kids shooting guns in a safe environment with their parents approval." ...

"Teaching children the dangers of a gun and the joys of shooting makes them more responsible and safer. A child who has never been allowed the opportunity to learn is more likely to have a gun related accident mainly due to a lack of knowledge."

However, ministers are investigating whether the programme, which also keeps an electronic record of people leaving Britain, can be speeded up because of its potential usefulness as a weapon against terrorism."

"The NRA further solidified its reputation for multi-tasking in politics when it made a big show of announcing that Columbus would not be the site of its 2007 convention."

"The ostensible reason: Enactment by Columbus City Council of a tough new ban against assault weapons, effective later this year."

"Never mind that the NRA had never signed a contract for the convention, which was supposed to draw 60,000 visitors and spending of $15 million to $20 million to Ohio's capital city in two years."

"That salient fact didn't keep Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's top gun, from jetting in to condemn the weapons ban and proclaim the whole affair as 'an unnecessary loss and an embarrassment to the city of Columbus' and its 'radical city council.'"

"Three rural Republican lawmakers took Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tim Kaine to task for his record on gun rights Friday, seeking to capitalize on an issue that they believe favors GOP nominee Jerry Kilgore."

"Kaine, the lieutenant governor, has said repeatedly that he respects the rights of law-abiding gun-owners and has no plans to them. But Dels. Bill Carrico of Grayson County, Robert Hurt of Chatham and Chris Saxman of Staunton said Kaine's record as Richmond's mayor from 1998 to 2001 undercuts his campaign pledge. Their criticism underscores the Kilgore campaign's emphasis on gun issues, which Gov. Mark Warner, a Democrat, effectively neutralized in his 2001 election victory."
