"Needing information on airline passengers for a test of the government's new computerized screening system, the Transportation Security Administration, rebuffed by JetBlue Airways, is looking for a substitute that can provide it, the agency's administrator said today."

"But the official, Adm. James M. Loy, said that because no one airline wanted to single itself out as the provider, he hoped to get the data from the industry as a whole. And if he cannot get the airlines' cooperation, he said, he will simply order them to turn over the information."

"The two state laws are similar. Both allow private property owners to post signs banning guns, a sore spot with permit holders who want to visit places such as Azia."

"Outwardly, though, not much looks different in Minnesota since the gun law passed — save for the 'No Guns' signs."

"The Minister for Police, John Watkins, recently announced a new plan to tackle illegal handguns, including tougher controls, penalties and increased cash rewards for weapons handed in to police.
But Mr. Caley criticised the plan as merely a political stunt by the State Government."

"He also said it would unfairly see law-abiding sports shooters come under tougher scrutiny, and make illegal weapons a more valuable on the black market."

"Dangers lurk on all sides at Locke High School in Los Angeles, where scores of students are battered, robbed or sexually victimized by classmates and intruders every year." ...

"Yet Locke is not 'persistently dangerous,' according to the definition adopted by California officials to comply with a federal law requiring educators to notify parents about dangerous schools. For that matter, none of California's 8,000 schools are persistently dangerous."

"Under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, parents across the nation can transfer their students from dangerous to safer schools, but 44 states have set the legal threshold for persistently dangerous so high that no schools in those states fit the definition." ...

"Another good friend of mine, Michael Badnarik, has spent over 20 years studying the Constitution and it's history. He teaches a class called 'Introduction to the Constitution' around the country professionally. Mr. Badnarik regularly points out what should be obvious: that a right is something you do not have to ask permission for, as opposed to a privilege which is granted by an authority and can be revoked by that same authority."

Study backs hidden guns against crime

"For Lynn Wachtmann, Ohio’s failure to adopt a law allowing law-abiding citizens to carry concealed handguns can be measured in flesh and blood, and the pain of crime victims."

" 'It’s heart-wrenching to see the number of Ohioans who are being victimized while some continue to play politics,' said Mr. Wachtmann, a Republican state senator from Napoleon."

"Mr. Wachtmann partially based his statement on research by David Mustard, an associate professor of economics at the University of Georgia. A gun rights group, Ohioans for Concealed Carry, hired Mr. Mustard to estimate what would happen if Ohio becomes the 46th state with a 'conceal carry' law."

"U.S. Magistrate Judge Patricia Coan didn't just issue a legal opinion last week when she ordered the destruction of depositions in a settled Columbine lawsuit. She also created a monstrous moral dilemma."

"Coan ruled that sworn statements about events leading up to the murder of a dozen Columbine High students and one teacher in April 1999 have no reason to exist. Those statements were made during pretrial interviews by the parents of Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold."

"If the court gets rid of the depositions, the only record of their contents will be the memories of people who heard the Klebolds and Harrises speak. That turns any information into uncorroborated hearsay."

"That's the advice from the Missouri Highway Patrol as law enforcement officers and motorists prepare to deal with the concealed weapons law that goes into effect Oct. 11. While the law sets up a permit system for people to carry hidden guns on their person, it also allows anyone over 21 years of age who lawfully owns a weapon to carry it concealed in the driver's compartment of their vehicle without a permit."

"The Senate seems close to a vote on final approval of the egregious House bill that would grant the gun-making industry unprecedented protection from liability suits by state and local governments and victims of gun violence. Custom-tailored for the donation-rich gun lobby, the bill was strategically delayed during the sniper murders last year around Washington. Now it is moving again, and some Democrats who in the past might have helped to derail it are wavering, frightened by polls that show gun control as a losing issue in some swing states. G.O.P. leaders also are angling to let the federal assault weapon ban expire next year, and to protect the lethal loophole that exempts weapon sales at gun shows from background checks."

"The Sun's editorial 'Banning the killers' (Sept. 22) educated and indoctrinated us all once again on the necessity of banning certain 'assault-style' weapons that are about to become legal when a federal law expires."

"Thanks for the lesson -- there's nothing like being taught by those without a clue on the subject."

"But as is typical, The Sun's editorial does not discuss the fact that the 'assault-style' weapons it hates and denounces are either already effectively banned from consumer ownership by federal law -- i.e., fully automatic 'machine guns' -- or not functionally different from other, legal weapons that have at least as much 'power.'

"A recent United Nations study estimates there are about half a million small arms in Kosovo, primarily illegal weapons held by civilians. In a province of 2 million people, almost every family is armed - a legacy of ethnic strife here and a threat to efforts to stabilize the province."

"Kosovo was flooded with weapons in 1997 after rioters looted military armories in neighboring Albania. Many of the pilfered arms went to the Kosovo Liberation Army, which was waging a guerrilla war against Serb rule over this primarily ethnic- Albanian province. In return, Serbian security forces issued machine guns to Serb paramilitaries and ordinary farmers alike. The conflict culminated in a NATO bombing campaign in 1999 that forced Serb soldiers to leave and put the province under UN administration."

"According to Murray, when the children viewed the violent clips, the amygdala on the right side of the brain, which senses danger and prepares to react to it, lit up.

In addition, the right posterior cingulate of the brain, which is reserved for long-term memory of important or traumatic events, also showed activity.

Murray said the findings suggest that children who watch violent television shows are more likely to treat others in an aggressive manner, become less sensitive to suffering, and tend to be more fearful of the world around them."

"The starting point for any person-to-person gun dealing should be knowledge of the law. The Gun Control Act of 1968 should be your starting point. I believe this law and its successors provide classic examples of what were possibly good intentions run amok. I'm consistently 'denied' for three days, without explanation, almost every time I get a 'loaner' gun for a story. The fact that I have a perfectly clean lifetime legal slate seemingly makes no difference whatsoever. But the point is you need to know the gun laws and follow them."

"Safe gun use by women is maintained a closely guarded secret. Some want to discourage or withhold gun rights from women, because they prefer women to remain vulnerable to would-be attackers. As perpetual victims, women need somebody or some organization to protect them. In other words, they’re dependent. But if women are empowered by the knowledge of self-protection, they are no longer viewed as easy targets, and represent an independent force that gun control advocates just cannot and will not tolerate."

"At least one criminal prosecution has resulted, in federal court in East St. Louis."

"And more recently, the U.S. attorney's office filed civil suits in U.S. District Court in St. Louis seeking forfeiture of the guns, claiming their owners improperly sold weapons."

"Activists who want the right to carry concealed weapons in Ohio said yesterday that they hope to increase pressure on the legislature now that the Ohio Supreme Court upheld the state's ban on carrying hidden weapons."

"Cincinnati private investigator Chuck Klein, who lost on Wednesday when the court rejected his lawsuit challenging Ohio's ban, said concealed-carry advocates will seek a bill allowing the hidden guns or will lobby for passage of a state constitutional amendment."

"Plaintiffs also are considering asking the Ohio Supreme Court to reconsider its ruling or starting a new court challenge to Ohio's ban, Klein said."
