L.A. Should Repeal 'Sanctuary' Law, Not Push New Gun Laws, Says CCRKBA

"The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today said it is an outrage that the Los Angeles city council supports new efforts to ratchet down on the rights of law-abiding gun owners, while it touts itself a 'Sanctuary City' for illegal aliens." ...

"'The city council has endorsed four new California anti-gun bills,' noted CCRKBA Executive Director Joe Waldron, "that target the wrong people. These bills place additional burdens on firearms retailers and law-abiding gun owners, but do nothing to curtail gang activities or stop gang members, many of whom do not belong in this country. These criminals make our neighborhoods unsafe, not citizens who legally own firearms.'" ...

... "'You know, I think ALL guns should be banned.'" ...

"'Well, how do you propose to get mine then?'"

"He paused, then said, 'Well, we'll pass a law and you'll have to turn them in to the government.'"

"I laughed. 'Wrong, sport. Let me tell you how that would work. If you want my gun, you're going to have to kill me to get it. Not only that, but you're going to have to kill my son, my brother and all our friends. And if even ten percent of American gunowners feel the way we do, you're going to have to kill upwards of eight and a half million people, and that doesn't count all the anti-freedom pukes like you that we'll kill in righteous self-defense before we meet our Maker, and we intend to make that MORE than a one to one ratio. So you've got to ask yourself, sport: Is it worth it?'" ...

"Ever since the ancient Romans realized their plumbing was giving them gout, lead has been bad news. The plentiful-but-toxic metal has been banned by the federal government in everything from paint and water pipes to food containers and gasoline. And now, one of the poisonous element's last footholds in American culture — the ammunition used by the 25 million people who hunt for sport and food — is being targeted, as states across the country consider enacting bans on the use of lead for hunting."

"The latest assault aims to protect the thousands of birds, wildlife and even some endangered species that wildlife experts and activists claim die annually from ingesting spent ammo ..." ...

"Ohio gun owners are well aware of our antiquated, backwards laws relating to gun ownership and usage. One thing area gun owners of every stripe ... uniformly agree upon is that our laws regulating unloaded transportation of firearms in a motor vehicle have been twisted well beyond the understanding of the average person."

"Quite a few gun owners have heard the horror stories - anti-gun jurisdictions arresting people transporting unloaded firearms in a car simply because there was a bullet in the gun case, shotgun shells in the vest next to the gun case ..."

"Most Ohio gun owners don't realize just how bad it is in Ohio, and won't know until they get arrested and charged with a felony they had no idea they were committing." ...

"A company's property rights must not trump an individual's right to life and self-defense. The bills you describe in 'Workers' Safety and the Gun Lobby' (editorial, March 30) protect property owners and employers from liability, while giving employees a means for self-defense while in their employer’s public-access parking lot."

"These bills do not allow employees to have firearms in their vehicles while in secured workplace parking lots or in a car owned or leased by their employer. Most important, they do not allow employees or anyone else to bring firearms into the workplace."

"To suggest that the legislation will force companies to allow workers to carry guns in the office or keep guns in office drawers is wrong." ...

"They may differ in the details, but the crimes follow the same depressing pattern."

"A woman is physically or verbally harassed by an ex-boyfriend, obtains a restraining order, changes her phone number and moves to another residence, but she still ends up getting killed by him." ...

"And, in their tragic inevitability, such crimes raise the question: Even with a restraining order, what can you really do to stop a violent ex-lover who's determined to harm you?"

"The sad truth is that law enforcement officers can only do so much and that your safety rests largely in your own hands."

"'Would we like to be there for every person who has a protection order? Of course,' said Ray Wittmier, the deputy sheriff of the UW police. 'But unless we have thousands of officers, it's not possible. ...'" ...

"The database is set to expire July 1. The measure (House Bill 1174) would extend it for another four years and require the state auditor to study whether the information is accurate and whether it is helping law enforcement and public safety."

"Two days after proposing stricter gun laws, Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings is taking a step back. The mayor says after receiving a number of phone calls from gun owners he realizes some of his proposed law already exists."

"Jennings originally presented the legislation as a way to keep more detailed records of who buys, sells and owns a gun."

"People spoke out saying they're already required, by law, to register with the state if they have a gun. Also, some gun store owners say they've been keeping extensive records of who they've sold guns to for years now." ...

"The State in considering stiffer registration laws. The proposed law, House Bill 760, would require ALL firearms to be registered annually. The registration would cost $10 per gun each year. Owners would have to provide two forms of photo identification and fingerprints." ...

"Standing up for the Second Amendment, Rep. Russ Fairchild ... and Rep. Merle Phillips ... said Thursday they do not support the legislation."

"'We feel that this legislation is a needless limitation on the rights of law-abiding gun owners,' said Fairchild. 'In addition, such legislation essentially duplicates many of the requirements, ... already found in current law and could create additional hardships on responsible and legitimate gun owners.'" ...

"The proposed Albany gun registration law was the focus of Albany Mayor Jerry Jennings' radio show Friday morning."

"On Wednesday, Mayor Jennings and Albany Police Chief James Tuffey pushed for a bill that would make Albany gun owners register with the city, even if they already had permits. Several residents fired back, and now it's heading back to the drawing board."

"Mayor Jennings said, 'If I started a dialog here, that was the intent. We are going to review this legislation. I've given it back to the Corporation Council.'"

"Tuffey said, 'He's willing to take that input, and if there are things that can be tweaked or changed then he will do that.'" ...

"'F.B.I. agent shot in showdown with bank robbers.'"

"The sentence evokes an image out of the Depression, of G-men in fedoras facing down the likes of Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd somewhere in the lawless Midwest."

"But fatal shootings of F.B.I. agents have been relatively rare — in the 1930s as well as today. Barry Lee Bush, the special agent shot dead yesterday near a highway in suburban New Jersey, was the 51st to die in the line of duty in the agency's 99-year history."

"Mr. Bush was the first agent to be fatally shot on the job in 10 years. But from 1986 to 1996, nine agents were killed by gunfire, one more than in the 1930s." ...

"A Jersey City cop thought he'd left behind a little more than he intended when he stopped at a Port Authority facility to use a restroom, officials said."

"But it turns out he'd left his gun not on the toilet but in his home, police said yesterday. However, officials are still checking out his story and he could face departmental charges for 'losing' his gun, even if it never left his home."

"According to reports, the 49-year-old detective - whose identity was not released by police - woke up Wednesday morning and couldn't find his 9mm Glock. He said the last place he remembered having it Tuesday night was inside the Port Authority facility attached to the Holland Tunnel toll booths." ...

"In this day and age where young students are frequently charged for serious school offenses such as possessing weapons, dealing drugs, or assaulting other students on school property, one Brooklyn teen's arrest may come as a surprise. A 13-year-old girl was handcuffed and placed under arrest in front of her classmates in Dyker Heights after she wrote 'Okay' on her desk." ...

"Each of these men and women have signed onto Bloomberg's group Mayors Against Illegal Guns. But, don't let this group's name fool you, it isn't just targeting illegal guns — it's out to ban all guns, which becomes obvious when you take a look at the conduct of its members." ...
