Senate leader takes no chance on NRA bill
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"Until lawmakers vote on a top-priority gun rights bill, nothing else happens in the Senate. ..."

"That's the way Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has toughened up his style in the final days before the August break was to begin, learning from last year to leave no room for gun control advocates to derail legislation limiting lawsuits against the gun industry."

"Frist, R-Tenn., used Senate parliamentary procedures Wednesday to keep Democrats from dooming the measure with an amendment that would offend the National Rifle Association."

"Last year, the NRA abruptly withdrew its support from a similar bill after Democrats succeeded in adding a measure that would renew the expiring assault weapons ban. Frist took the bill down." ...

"As the Senate moves closer to a vote this week on the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, gun-rights advocates are jubilant over the bipartisan support for the bill, which bans frivolous lawsuits targeting gun manufactures."

"National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said 2nd Amendment supporters have played a large role in politicians’ changing attitudes toward firearms. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (S 397), for example, has 56 co-sponsors in the Senate and 257 co-sponsors in the House--more than enough votes to pass. It is sponsored by Sen. Larry Craig (R.-Idaho) and Rep. Cliff Stearns (R.-Fla.)." ...

"The National Rifle Association is getting near to realizing a handsome reward for its campaign contributions to members of Congress."

"Members of the Senate are poised to act on a bill this week to shield gun makers and dealers from lawsuits stemming from crimes involving the use of weapons. The bill is being pushed ahead of schedule so the Senate can take a vote before recessing for a month-long vacation in August. How’s that for clout?" ...

"The bill would protect the industry from civil lawsuits arising from the use of a firearm in a crime. The manufacturers and dealers could still be sued for product failures, negligence or breach of contract." ...
 

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Asks: When Will Sen. Craig Start Telling the Truth about The NRA's Gun Immunity Bill?

"The following was released today by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence:"

"Senator Larry Craig, the National Rifle Association board member who is the chief sponsor of the bill to grant sweeping civil immunity to gun sellers, said repeatedly this morning that the legislation allows negligence cases against gun sellers to proceed. That is untrue, and the Senator knows it."

"The exceptions to immunity in the bill include cases involving 'negligent entrustment' and 'negligence per,' extremely narrow and technical legal doctrines that have no application to the vast majority of cases where gun sellers have enabled criminal to get guns." ...

On Monday, July 25, the Violence Policy Center issued a new report, A Foreign Affair: Contracting for U.S. Military and Law Enforcement Firearms revealing that, contrary to claims by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist that firearms litigation could result in U.S. armed forces having to depend on "foreign manufacturers" for their sidearms, the "American" company Senator Frist cited as being at risk, Beretta, is, in fact, a foreign company. That same day, the National Rifle Association issued a statement claiming that the VPC statement was false and that Beretta USA, located in Accokeek, Maryland, is not Italian. In response, VPC Legislative Director Kristen Rand today released the following statement.

"The Senate appears poised to pass a priority of the National Rifle Association this week, legislation that would shield the gun industry from lawsuits arising from the misuse of their weapons." ...

"The shield bill is sponsored by Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho), who is on the NRA's board of directors. It would ban most lawsuits against gun manufacturers, dealers and trade associations that seek to hold them responsible for damages caused by the unlawful use of the weapons or ammunition they have produced or sold." ...

"Four Democratic senators announced their opposition Tuesday to a measure that would shield gun manufacturers, dealers, distributors and trade associations from most lawsuits, including ones already in court brought by shooting victims and municipalities."

"Sens. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), and Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (S. 397) is a diversion from the $491 billion Defense Authorization Act, which the Senate Tuesday decided to delay a vote on until the fall in lieu of Senate action on the gun bill." ...

"If we recall correctly, it was Shakespeare who wrote 'the first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.' That's going too far, but the Senate can do the metaphoric equivalent this week by voting to protect gun makers from lawsuits designed to put them out of business."

"Senate Republicans say they have 60 votes to pass the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which would protect gun makers from lawsuits claiming they are responsible for crimes committed with their products. The support includes at least 10 Democrats, which speaks volumes about the political shift against 'gun control' in recent years." ...

"With temperatures soaring in the hot July sun, the only thing spinning faster than a ceiling fan is Sen. Dick Durbin's position on supporting the working families of Illinois."

"While in Chicago earlier this week, Durbin addressed the AFL- CIO convention by pledging to fight for working families. Yet, less than a day later, Durbin was in front of the press pledging to defeat a bill designed to save thousands of Illinois jobs from extinction."

"The bill in question S.397, would protect lawful firearm manufacturers and dealers from lawsuits seeking recovery of damages arising from crimes committed with firearms. The gun control movement, with the aid of high-powered trial lawyers, has been using such litigation in an attempt to bankrupt the nation's firearms industry. Without the protections offered by S.397, it will just be a matter of time before the firearm industry is driven to ruin by these frivolous, politically motivated lawsuits." ...

Maribel Cuevas was arrested in April in a police operation which involved three police cars and a helicopter.'"

"It seems that the rock gashed the little monster's forehead and, according to the BBC, he needed 'hospital treatment.' I suspect this means that he needed treatment that any general practitioner could have given him in his office, but ambulances don't take people to general practitioners."

"A men's issues columnist says many civil rights violations are occurring as a result of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Under that legislation and a later modification passed in 1996, police officers or military personnel that have a restraining order against them are not allowed to possess a firearm."

"... And according to columnist Glenn Sacks, the evidence standard for restraining orders is so low that they are often issued without any allegation of violence." ...

"The men's issues advocate feels Congress should repeal the ... [1996 modification] and allow soldiers and police officers who are under a restraining order to continue using their military-issued or department-issued firearms for the purpose of their jobs. ..." ...

"Shooting Master John Gannaway introduced us to the .700 Nitro Express recently. This cartridge, developed by Holland & Holland of England, is said to be the brainchild of the factory staff in response to the opinion of a customer who once said that the reason he packed a .600 when hunting elephant was simply that "They don't make a .700." Well, now they do. The .700 Nitro starts a .70-caliber, 1,000-grain bullet at 2,000 fps. The custom-made single-shot piece has a falling-block action, and at 16 pounds per unit, it is presumably best used in pairs since a double for this round would be too cumbersome to pack afield." ...

"Of all the new short and super-short magnums, the two I have the least experience with are the 7mm WSM and 7mm RSAUM. Partly, this is by chance; the opportunity simply hasn't come along. Partly, admittedly, it's just me: I haven't gone out of my way to make the opportunity. You're right; here I go again, knocking the 7mms that so many of you love. But, really, there's only room for so many rifles and cartridges in anyone's life."

"I like the .270 caliber a lot, so I like the .270 WSM. For somewhat larger game in open country I like a fast .30--any fast .30, including the short magnums. I have magnum 7mms and nonmagnum 7mms. None of them sees as much use as I'd like, so I've had a hard time getting close to any of the short-magnum 7mms." ...

"I sure learned a lot about guns and those who love them from the recent letters to the Daily Planet that were prompted by the slaying of Meleia Willis-Starbuck and the editor’s subsequent commentary on gun control. One letter writer claims that all women should be armed with handguns in order to fend off would-be rapists. Presumably gun possession would also help prevent muggings; thus men should pack heat every time they leave the house too. While it’s true that with everyone carrying guns the potential for the damn things to go off increases and they may be used in anger rather than self defense and their proliferation will increase the possibility of them finding their way into the hands of children, drunks and the mentally impaired ..." ...
