Justice Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Allows Sale of Handgun Disguised as a Pen Despite Law Enforcement Warning

"The U.S. Justice Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is allowing the sale to the general public of a small-caliber handgun disguised as a pen -- despite the clear public safety threat such "pen guns" represent -- the Violence Policy Center (VPC) warned today." ...

"VPC Executive Director Josh Sugarmann states, 'ATF and the Justice Department have been put on notice that the Stinger Pengun represents a clear threat to public safety and law enforcement. ATF clearly has the authority -- and legal responsibility -- to reclassify Stinger's pen and knife guns under federal law to tightly restrict them and should do so immediately.' "
 

Americans Flock to Get on NRA Blacklist

"Most blacklists are designed to intimidate. But thousands of Americans are clamoring to join one drawn up by the National Rifle Association." ...

"The list was found deep in the official NRA Web site by a group of grass-roots anti-gun campaigners..."

"The campaigners set up their own Web site and urged Americans to voluntarily put their names there. A full-page ad on Tuesday in Daily Variety -- the Hollywood trade magazine -- urged movie and music artists to sign up."

-------
The pseudo literate hack who wrote this piece makes it sound like the list is hush-hush top secret. Fact is it has existed for a while and has been readily available with just a few clicks of a mouse on NRA-ILA's website.

"The latest news from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) should sit well with either side because it addresses a problem that is not a political issue but a matter of basic fairness which is one of the cornerstones of our culture."

" 'With an overwhelming and bipartisan vote of 285-to-140,' the NSSF reports, 'the House of Representatives has passed common-sense legislation to stop the junk lawsuits seeking to blame law-abiding companies in the firearms industry for the criminal misuse of their legally-sold, highly regulated and non-defective products. Several attempts to water down the bill with amendments failed by similar votes.' "

"Even though 30 states have already enacted similar legislation, a reform to federal law is needed to restore integrity to the nation's judicial system and prevent frivolous, politically motivated lawsuits from being filed by municipalities and special interest groups in an attempt to bankrupt responsible companies by blaming them for the actions of criminals. Next, the 'Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2003' will be considered in the Senate. There, S. 659 also enjoys broad support from 52 co-sponsors, including the minority whip, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, among the nine Democrats.' "

"Federal officials will cut an additional 'few thousand' airport security screener positions across the country by next year because of budget cuts, a top TSA administrator said Wednesday in Dallas."

"The cuts are part of the TSA's continuing development despite waning resources, Associate Administrator John Shkor said during an aviation-issues breakfast at Dalfort Fueling near Dallas Love Field."

"Beyond federalizing security checkpoints, the TSA's training of pilots to use handguns, the reinforcement of cockpit doors and the activation of thousands of armed air marshals help thwarting potential terrorists, Mr. Shkor said."

The Republican-Democratic leadership of this country--not the fine Republican and Democratic voters, but the Party leadership in Washington--hate our children.

"Robert West, a former New Bern police officer, agreed to turn over his 9 mm handgun to police after a family disturbance at his home."

"The incident, which did not involve the gun, was investigated in June. In July, West went to the New Bern police department to retrieve his gun."

" 'Mr. West was required to fill out a federal firearms questionnaire before the weapon could be returned,' Hart said. 'In the section that asks about drug use, including marijuana, Mr. West checked the 'yes' block.' "

"Because of that, the gun was not returned."

"West's attorney, David Henderson, said West made a mistake in filling out the block, believing the question was about prescription drugs."

"If people are allowed to carry concealed weapons, officers and citizens could be at greater risk of losing their lives, and relatively minor incidents could turn deadly if someone whips out a weapon, they said."

Firefighters battling blazes that are scorching Southern California have a new problem: armed residents.

Some people who've refused to evacuate are becoming frightened by reports of looting, and are arming themselves.

One resident became alarmed after seeing people walking near his property with flashlights. He waved a 45-caliber handgun in the face of a visitor, who turned out to be a firefighter.

A spokesman for the Department of Forestry says that when people in rural areas hear about looters, "they get nervous."
