Suit Highlights Need To Pass S. 397 In U.S. House (NRA-ILA)
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Yet another example of the need to pass S. 397 surfaced this week in Washington, D.C., as the Supreme Court Monday refused to block a lawsuit against firearm manufacturers."

"Washington D.C.'s 'strict liability' law holds any manufacturer of any firearm liable if one of their guns is used in the commission of a crime. The statute is one of the most egregious in the nation, putting the entire industry at risk if one of their products is used in the commission of a crime in D.C."

"... 'The District of Columbia's statute threatens ... gun manufacturers with draconian penalties based on their lawful out-of-state commercial activity--and on the criminal misconduct of third parties over whom the manufacturers have no control.'" ...

"'The United States House of Representatives ought to get on the stick and pass the proposed Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act as soon as possible,' gun law expert John Michael Snyder said here today."

"The Senate passed the bill, S. 397, with an overwhelming 65-31 vote on July 29 and ever since it has been languishing in the House."

"'It’s time for the Speaker of the House and the House leadership as it is to move on this bill,' said Snyder, named 'dean of gun lobbyists' by The Washington Post and The New York Times ..."

"'The bill would eliminate politically-motivated third party junk lawsuits against firearm manufacturers, distributors and dealers,' he added." ...

"NRA has long maintained that federal gun laws aimed at the criminal misuse of firearms are effective in reducing crime--if they are enforced. President Bush's administration has clearly heard that message and implemented it."

"According to data released by a Syracuse University-based research group, Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), prosecutions of federal gun law violations have increased sharply in the Bush Administration."

"The data, obtained by TRAC from the Department of Justice, show that federal prosecutions are up across the board in the Bush Justice Department, and that cases filed on gun charges are a primary reason for the increase." ...

"One summer day two years ago, a jealous husband with a semiautomatic handgun walked into a plant nursery west of Boynton Beach."

"He found his wife working among the pots and shot her dead. ..."

"On a quiet morning in 2001, a construction worker told to pick up nails from a driveway grabbed an AK-47 assault rifle from his pickup and killed his boss ..."

"One Saturday in 2000, a cook fired a semiautomatic handgun and wounded his wife and another woman while they worked ..." ...

"You don't have to go far to find horrific examples of gun violence at the workplace."

"You'd think our legislators would want to do everything they can to keep firearms at bay. But you'd have to imagine some group of legislators that wasn't beholden to the National Rifle Association." ...

"The much despised American World War II M-1 Carbine has been reborn as the Israeli Magal. Israel bought over World War II surplus 100,000 M-1 Carbines (some of them cost nothing), and used them mainly to equip security troops, or civilians volunteering for security duty. M-1 Carbines have now become collectors items, with one in good condition selling for nearly a thousand dollars."

"Actually, the M-1 Carbine was only despised by gun enthusiasts. The M-1 Carbine was designed to provide a lightweight weapon for combat support troops, who would probably never have to use it. With these folks, the Carbine was popular. The six pound Carbine weighed about half as much as the M-1 rifle. ..." ...

"Two New Orleans police officers repeatedly punched a 64-year-old man accused of public intoxication, and another city officer assaulted an Associated Press Television News producer as a cameraman taped the confrontations."

"There will be a criminal investigation, and the three officers were to be suspended, arrested and charged with simple battery Sunday, Capt. Marlon Defillo said."

"'We have great concern with what we saw this morning,' Defillo said after he and about a dozen other high-ranking police department officials watched the APTN footage Sunday. 'It's a troubling tape, no doubt about it. ... This department will take immediate action.'"

"Cpl. Kelley Cradduck of the Rogers Police Department is proud of two local women who recently fought off their attackers."

"Cradduck teaches self-defense classes and knows the importance of fighting back. 'The more you fight, the better chance of surviving,' Cradduck said. 'Fighting back gives you a better chance.'" ...

"Cradduck said there is a belief that young girls and older women think they can’t physically fight their attackers. 'Those two groups are predisposed to being victims because of that mindset,' Cradduck said. 'We need to do a better job explaining that everyone has the capability of fighting back. ...'" ...

Submitter's Note: Of course it is safest, especially for young girls and older women, to fight back with a gun.

"The thief shot dead inside the home of fashion designer Romanita Iovan should be granted a post mortem medal for having contributed to the promotion of the new Penal Code. ..."

"Right to the target. The following day, the newspapers wrote that the dead man was to blame as the owner has released the trigger of the gun in self defense. Tens of prime time talk shows and hundreds of ads would not have aroused so much interest for the changes brought to the Penal Code like the Wednesday night execution did."

"The extensive coverage of the case made us understand that the term of self defense is no longer an obsolete reply in the American movies. Now, self defense is also working in Romania. ..." ...

"State Rep. Dennis Baxley is confident his proposed bill to allow employees to have guns in their vehicles on work property is a surefire winner."

"'It's a national issue, really. I felt like Florida should take a position,' the Ocala Republican said Tuesday. 'It's just a matter of time until the anti-gun lobby gets to every major employer.'"

"But some Ocala employers who currently prohibit their employees from bringing guns into the parking lot are uneasy about Baxley's proposal."

"'It seems precarious to me,' said Pat Reddish, human resources director for Signature Brands. 'It just opens up so many opportunities for things to happen.'" ...

"Porter County police, while concerned that a girl with a gun got on a school bus Wednesday afternoon, said they are relieved to find the weapon was just a BB pistol."

"And, even more importantly as far as police are concerned, the fact that students saw the gun and reported it shows students are getting the message about their role in school safety."

"The 14-year-old girl who had the gun wasn't arrested, but the case was referred to juvenile probation for review of possible charges. She was ordered to stay off school buses in the future." ...

"She'd had the sense before that someone was after her, the FBI perhaps. But they'd never come after her like this."

"'Get out from under the blanket! Let me see your hands! Let me see your hands!' the men screamed at her." ...

"They shot her with a Sage gun that hurtles small, rubber batons. Her arm broke. They shot her again, again, again and again. Her leg broke." ...

"The city embarked on the consent decree -- the reform agreement with the California attorney general's office -- in 2001 after police fatally shot 19-year-old Tyisha Miller." ...

"The consent decree laid out more than 20 reform mandates for the department, including changes in the handling of citizen complaints, achieving an officer-to-supervisor ratio of 7-to-1, buying less-lethal weapons, and providing training in areas such as cultural sensitivity and the appropriate use of force." ...

"'I didn't even know what kind it is,' she said Saturday. 'People really have a right to have one if they want one ... I just don't feel comfortable having that gun in the house.'"

"So Curtis put the gun in her car and drove to Jason Lee United Methodist Church in Salem, where she exchanged her gun for a $50 Fred Meyer gift certificate."

"She was among the dozens of Salem-area residents who dug out handguns, rifles and cartridges and turned them in at a free, no-questions-asked gun turn-in event at the church's parking lot near Jefferson Street and Fairgrounds Road NE." ...

"Most murder guns in Canada are never registered with the Canadian Firearms Centre, according to a new Statistics Canada report."

"The new Juristat study - a version of which reported over the summer that Canada's murder rate jumped 12% in 2004 after a three-decade slide - says that registration information on murder guns was 'unknown' to police in more than half of homicides reported between 1997 and 2004 where the gun was recovered."

"Gun registry opponents say that proves the registry - two years and more than a billion tax dollars later - is a failure."

"'First, 65% of firearms homicides involve handguns. We've had a handgun registry for decades, so obviously it didn't work either,' said Dennis Young ..." ...
