"At first glance, radio frequency ID (RFID) tagging technologies seem unrelated to firearms issues. After all, most firearms in common use today have few electronic components, right?"

"While it's true that the basic firearm can be made without electronic components, an overall technology trend has been for electronics and firmware (software embedded in chips) to be applied to technologies that have, up to now, been primarily traditionally mechanical or large-scale electrical. This has been happening to automobiles. It is becoming harder and harder for the average car owner or small independent garage to work on newer cars."
 

RFID Gussied Up With Biosensors

"Still stinging from failed attempts to introduce radio tags to consumers, retailers and their suppliers are now adding features to the technology to make it appear essential to the safety of the nation's food supply."

"As recently as last week, retailers and consumer packaged-goods companies have had to quietly dump efforts to implant radio-frequency identification technology into products or store shelves. The tiny radio transmitters let the companies precisely track the numbers and whereabouts of their inventory and consumers' purchasing preferences, which worries many privacy advocates."

"But many companies are now combining the tags with sensors that can detect the presence of biological and chemical agents, or signal that a perishable item has expired. By doing so, they hope to gussy up the controversial technology as an essential terrorism-fighting tool."
 

Reflections of 9-11

"Reflecting back to the days immediately after the attack, the first thought that comes to mind is the wave of patriotism demonstrated particularly by American flags flying from nearly every house and vehicle. Another, equally relevant but not as highly publicized phenomenon was the run on firearms, ammunition, and survival supplies by Americans from all walks of life. The parking lots of gun stores and military surplus stores were packed with an unusual array of vehicles such as the Volvo and Volkswagon Bus. Boot and Birkenstock-wearers alike cleaned the shelves with the common goal of personal and cultural survival." ...

"Despite the efforts of the mainstream media and certain special interest groups, there are many of us who have not forgotten. We remember September 11, 2001 as if it were yesterday. We remember what we were doing at the exact moment that we were made aware of the attack. We remember how our hearts went out to the victims of the attack. And how angry we became after the shock began to wear off."

"We call ourselves Patriots. And we will not allow ourselves to be lulled into another false sense of security while our government continues down the path of 'business as usual.' We cannot allow ourselves, our families, or our neighbors to be placed in a position even more vulnerable than before the September 11th attack. As such, we cannot allow ourselves to be subject to a steady stream of disarmament laws that many in our government will attempt to pass into law."

"Saying the nation's security is at stake, US President George W Bush is calling on Congress to 'untie the hands' of law enforcement and pass tougher anti-terrorism legislation to deny bail to terror suspects and expand those eligible for the death penalty."

Translation: Bush tries to pressure corrupt politicians into further increasing the government's power over the people and, in effect, using the Constitution to wipe their collective asses.

"In so very many ways, the world has changed since Sept. 11, 2001."

"There are obvious, dreadful differences: There are gaps in creation where the more than 3,000 victims of the attacks once lived and breathed, and thousands of others have died in Afghanistan and Iraq."

"But the changes are not all so momentous."

"... it is growing harder to remember a time when the federal government could not force universities to divulge the grades and other records of foreign students, or detain people as material witnesses without charges, or hold Americans as 'enemy combatants' without access to lawyers."

Communism Hasn't 'Collapsed" in America

"Increasingly, Americans are becoming aware of the expansive incursion of communist practices in their daily lives. From skyrocketing income and property taxes to ever-restrictive gun control seeking to preclude protecting oneself or one’s children from criminal attack, law and government are suppressing each and every freedom it is our national heritage to enjoy. Religion is being abolished. Marriage and families are being phased out. Parental child rearing is becoming illegal. Our right to be secure in our own homes is waning. Protection from government confiscation of all private property is now virtually non-existent. Peace and peace of mind are quickly disappearing from what was once the greatest, freest society in history."

"Mr. Ashcroft, you say that 132 individuals have been convicted or pled guilty in your terrorism investigations, but there have been reports that federal prosecutors are making veiled threats -- that if suspects fight the charges by pursuing a jury trial before an impartial judge, well, then, they'll be turned over to the U.S. military, where they will be held in solitary confinement indefinitely. Have you investigated these newspaper reports? Is such conduct by a federal prosecutor constitutional, legal, and ethical?"

"Tijuana officials are set to announce this week the suspension of eight police officers who were accused of extorting money from American tourists. The unprecedented move is part of a new anti-corruption drive led by officials at Tijuana city hall and the US consulate. But as KPBS border reporter Eric Niiler found out, fighting corruption in Mexico isn't so easy." ...

"Officially, there are no murders in 2002 crime statistics that police have posted on the city's Web site."

"That may come as a surprise to two men charged with first-degree murder in a killing last year."

"Matthew Patrick LaCross and Charon Justin Shields are scheduled to stand trial Oct. 15 for a botched home invasion in which a third intruder was shot dead by an armed Peoria homeowner. Because police and prosecutors determined the killing to be justified, it doesn't show up in numbers reported by Peoria for use by the FBI in its annual nationwide crime study." ...

"LaCross and Shields were charged under Arizona law that allows prosecution for murder if a person engages in illegal conduct, such as burglary, that contributes to a death."

What a repugnant travesty of justice!

Chicago's slimy government officials, in a vain attempt to shift focus from the fact that the firearm used in the recent Chicago warehouse shooting was owned by two cops, who didn't register it with the city like they were supposed to, prior to making its way to Salvador Tapia, are scapegoating a homeless Vietnam veteran and former Marine for failing to keep records of the sale for the required 10 years.

The bond set for this misdemeanor: $100,000

Jail time for this scapegoat: 12 days

"Why is it impossible to pass reasonable gun safety legislation in Pennsylvania? It's a complex question, with many answers relating to the constitutions of the United States and Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act, the composition of the Legislature and the balance of strengths and weaknesses of interest groups on both sides."

"Last year, the majority of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit declared that historical context, text, structure and legislative history leave little doubt that 'The amendment protects the people's right to maintain an effective state militia and does not establish an individual right to own or possess firearms for personal or other use.' "

-------
"Why is it impossible to pass reasonable gun safety legislation in Pennsylvania?" -- Because there is no such animal.

And quoting the fundamentally flawed and constitutionally erroneous 9th "Circus" Silveira decision as supporting evidence for their fascist views, further erodes what little credibility this cowardly "legislator" had.

Drivers Who Don't Consent To Searches Can't Enter Airport

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Police have increased security at Baltimore-Washington International Airport Wednesday.

It's unclear as to whether the security enhancements were planned for the eve of Thursday's anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Maryland Transportation Authority police established a checkpoint at 6 a.m. Wednesday at the airport entrance on Interstate 195.

Police spokesman Cpl. Greg Prioleau said cars will be searched "until further notice."

Officers are using dogs and mirrors to look for hidden explosives and are asking some drivers to allow them to search their trunks. Prioleau told WBAL-AM 1090 that, so far, despite the traffic delays the searches have caused, people have been generally cooperative.

Police said drivers who don't consent to the searches will not be allowed to enter the airport.

"Starting in October, the guns at the Tewksbury Rod and Gun club will fall silent each Sunday, a concession club members have made to calm angry neighbors."

"The club, which has stood on the current site for many years, has become the target of increasing complaints over the past three years. Neighbors say the rattle of rifle fire has increased to intolerable levels."

"That prompted the town's Board of Health to step in. In August, the board began hosting a series of public hearings about the noise. From the start, questions swirled around those hearings."

"State law, it seems, governs the how's and why's of firing ranges, including the hours during which the guns can be fired."

"All around the police academy, you could hear the rounds pop as the officers-in-training went through the morning's target practice."

"Officers need to know how to pull the trigger and aim their weapon. But first, said veteran Richmond training Officer James Keefer, they need to understand when is the right time to pull their gun and when to keep it on their hip."

A Soweto schoolboy has been arrested in possession of a pistol and ammunition after a complaint of armed robbery at his school, police said.

Sergeant Richard Munyai said on Wednesday police were called to Senoane Secondary School about 08:30.

Apparently, one of the pupils had arranged to buy a gun from the 17-year-old schoolboy, but instead had been robbed of R200.

The pupil complained to the principal, who called the police.

Munyai said a search of the accused boy's schoolbag turned up a 6.35mm pistol with four live rounds. He was arrested.

Police investigations are continuing and the arrested youth is due to appear soon in court in connection with a charge of armed robbery, said Munyai.

"As WorldNetDaily reported, 12-year-old Parker Jensen of Sandy, Utah, had been diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a deadly form of bone cancer. His parents, Daren and Barbara, wanted to get a second opinion from a doctor after receiving the first recommendation of chemotherapy."

"Authorities in Utah, however, had different plans. They obtained an order from a Salt Lake City court compelling the parents to have Parker undergo the treatment. The only option, the parents believed, was to flee the state with their boy. The Jensens were not convinced the initial diagnosis made three months ago was even correct."

"Imagine you're having a backyard barbeque. A cop walks in and announces, 'This is a random health and safety check to see whether you've removed the skin from the chicken before you served it.' ...If you're caught serving chicken skin, the cop gets your ID and issues you a $50 ticket."

"... Each year, obesity claims the lives of 300,000 Americans and adds over $100 billion to health-care costs. Doesn't that give government the right to dictate what we eat? If you're the least offended by the notion of government dictating our diets, pray tell me how it differs in principle from seatbelt laws and especially the new federal enforcement program called "Click It or Ticket."
