"Legislation expected before the U.S. House this week would give the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) greater flexibility to punish federally licensed firearms dealers and limit the agency's actions at gun shows. Another bill would forbid the ATF to release so-called crime gun trace data to cities, counties or states for use in lawsuits against the gun industry."

"In a member alert emailed to the organization's supporters over the weekend, the National Rifle Association (NRA) called for 'urgent action' regarding the two proposals." ...

Anti-Gunners: Part of a World-Wide Conspiracy?

"Think about it. Great Britain, and to an extent our neighbor to the north Canada, have literally given up their guns. The same is true of Australia. The anti-gunners – organized groups, certain U.S. politicians, select members of Congress, many foreign governments, plus the United Nations – continue to hack away at the U.S. Constitution's 2nd Amendment every chance they can. These determined gun-haters have popped up in every free and civilized country in the world. Their aim: to rid the world (they say) of any and all deadly weapons by first forcing restrictions, then eventually banning every gun – rifle and pistol alike – belonging to hunters, sportsmen, and decent citizens – those of us who only keep a gun for self defense. ..." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, issued the following statement:

"Our deepest condolences go out today to the family of Patricia Kennedy Lawford, who passed away Sunday at age 82.

"Mrs. Lawford was a kind hearted, spiritually centered and altruistic American. She spent her entire adult living giving of her time and energy to a great many important projects, including literacy and the arts. She was a strong supporter of gun violence prevention efforts, and worked hard to help Sarah Brady raise funds for the fight to pass the Brady Law.

"I know that Mrs. Lawford's family members are deeply saddened by her departure. But they may take much solace in the life she spent - like her brothers and sisters - making the world a better place for all of us."

"Hunting handguns are not necessarily the same thing. A hunting handgun is what a handgun hunter uses as his primary game-taking tool. Something like a scoped big-bore single-action revolver, a long-barreled single shot, or a bolt-action pistol."

"A hunters' handgun is what a rifle hunter or shotgun hunter carries as a sidearm to supplement or serve as a crisis backup to their primary hunting gun. ..."

"Of course, small and lightweight ... revolvers have long been popular as hunters' belt guns. But here I'm talking about something different. I'm talking about serious, powerful, backup and point-and-shoot survival tools, where a .357 Magnum is the absolute minimum and the maximum is as much as you can handle." ...

"In the latest result out of the Oregon Courts the judge has ruled against Daniel Ellis' motion to dimiss. As we reported earlier, Using the Sixth District Ruling For Dismissal, the Ellis argued that since the Sixth District Court ruled that the concealed carry law is not a general law it is not feasible for the prosecutor in Sayers' to argue that their 'complete ban' on firearms is only partial due to the general law nature of HB12."

"Confused? The Oregon, Ohio ordinance bans 'all firearms', and since the Sixth District Court of Appeals ruled that HB12 is no longer a general law, ... the Oregon, Ohio court should agree that what they are dealing with is nothing short of a complete prohibition on firearms." ...

"Although only replica guns have been recovered so far, police say they have to send out an armed response unit to every report of a firearm on the basis that it could turn out to be the real thing."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Thanks to the government’s past record, it is unfortunately very predictable that, in spite of the severe penalties mandated, tens of thousands of people will not comply at all (with Bill C-68). A new class of criminal will be created among harmless citizens whose previous lawbreaking may have resulted in nothing more than parking tickets. — Lee Morrison, Canadian Mounted Police
