FEMA Reverses No Guns Policy Following SAF Whistleblowing, Says Second Amendment Foundation (SAF)
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) today reversed a policy of prohibiting firearm possession in emergency evacuee trailer parks -- so-called 'FEMA villages' -- and other temporary housing provided by the agency. The reversal followed complaints by the Second Amendment Foundation that the original policy violated the Second Amendment civil rights of evacuees and that it was discriminatory as well."

"'Victims of natural disasters should not be victimized a second time by FEMA or other relief agencies,' noted Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. 'A citizen doesn't give up his or her civil rights simply because a disaster strikes.'" ...

"'Recent votes in the United States House of Representatives and in a national referendum in Brazil point to the beginning of an all-out international attack on unreasonably restrictive gun controls and on their proponents,' gun law expert John Michael Snyder said here today."

"'And it’s about time,' he added. 'For too long, for much too long, elitists of various stripes throughout the world have been working to undermine the right and ability of average, decent people to defend life and property against violent local, national and international criminal elements. Well, the tide is turning. ... We are telling the gun-grabbing elitists and hypocritical do-gooders of the world to go take a hike!'" ...

"Residents can now possess and store firearms in trailer parks or other temporary housing set up for hurricane victims by the Federal Emergency Management Agency under a new policy announced today." ...

"Gun rights groups had sought the change, saying the original policy violated Second Amendment protections for gun ownership. Kinerny said FEMA made the change after consulting with lawyers." ...

"The old policy banning possession or storage of firearms had been in place for years, according to FEMA spokesmen. But two gun rights groups — the National Rifle Association and Second Amendment Foundation — said they only found out about it earlier this month as a FEMA trailer park was opening in Baker, north of Baton Rouge." ...

"Brazilians voted 64 percent to 36 percent in a referendum yesterday to reject a proposed ban on retail sales of guns and ammunition, the national elections authority said on its Web site. The balloting marks the first time a country put a gun- control measure to a popular vote, according to the human-rights group Amnesty International."

"'Common people having guns won't provide security,' Lula said after casting his ballot in favor of the ban, according to Estado de S. Paulo newspaper." ...

Did The Gun Industry Sell Out Its Best Customers?
Submitted by: D. Finlayson

"I am convinced that S.397, the federal legislation recently passed to protect the firearms industry from frivolous civil liability claims, was nothing but industry protectionism, with little or no consideration provided for the protection of the rights of gun owners. From the way it was passed, I suspect a segment of the sporting arms industry received undue benefits at the expense of our individual rights."

"... the non-germane, anti-gun amendments contained in it call to question the purity of the motives of its more strident supporters. There was no need for anti-gun amendments to be included, yet the loudest industry lobbyists insisted that only the bill containing those features be passed." ...

"... I now suspect the unthinkable - that someone in the sporting industry has been paying off some of our highest profile gun rights lobbyists to sell us out. I can think of no other rational reason for industry lobbyists' adamant support of the recently passed travesty, at the expense of a viable, parallel bill that contained no gun controls." ...

"... Having said he favored an extension of the ban on military-style semiautomatic weapons, the president didn't lift so much as a pinky to accomplish that and the ban expired."

"Now Bush has championed and, with flourish, signed legislation that exempts the firearms industry from the reach of civil justice in all but a few very narrowly drawn and unlikely circumstances."

"An industry that exists solely to manufacture products that have no other purpose except to kill and wound is thus granted a privileged shelter from lawsuits enjoyed by no other business. Is this a precedent for the political purchase of legal safe harbors ..." ...

"For the second time in less than a week, the world-wide gun control movement has suffered a serious setback in its campaign to disarm law-abiding citizens. Late last week, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed legislation to derail the gun control movement's attempts to litigate firearm manufacturers into bankruptcy. That victory for freedom-loving people was made all the sweeter on Sunday when Brazilian voters turned back a referendum to ban private firearm ownership by nearly a 2 to 1 margin." ...

"The gun industry has built its popularity on promoting the 2nd Amendment — Americans have a right to bear arms and protect themselves. But when it comes to protecting itself, the industry runs to Congress. Lawmakers, like victims of an armed robbery, give the industry everything it demands."

That's exactly what happened Thursday, when the House passed legislation preventing victims of gun violence from bringing lawsuits against gun manufacturers and dealers. All of Iowa's House delegation voted for the bill, except Rep. Leonard Boswell, who could not vote because he's recovering from surgery. The Senate passed the bill in July. The White House has said President Bush will sign it."

"He shouldn't." ...

"The gun lobby got its bill, the House last week following the Senate, approving legislation that would shield gun manufacturers and dealers from liability lawsuits. President Bush conveyed his eagerness to sign the measure, citing the need to 'stem frivolous lawsuits.'"

"Few people applaud such suits. If the legislation were so narrowly tailored that careless attorneys and their clients were the only ones nabbed, who wouldn't cheer? Unfortunately, the protection afforded the gun industry is sweeping, alarmingly so."

"No other industry, ever, has been armed with such a broad shield, the few exemptions making little difference. Consider the retroactive application. ... Defendants who have behaved negligently will walk." ...

"...Chicago Mayor Richard Daley hosted a meeting of officials from 15 cities and the U.S. Conference of Mayors to plan litigation strategy and boasted, 'This is just the beginning.'" ...

"But a funny thing happened on the way to the jackpot: Suit after suit was thrown out of court. ..."

"...The people responsible for crime are criminals, and there is no shortage of legal weaponry to go after them with. Absent criminal intent or gross negligence, guns are not inherently dangerous, and their makers should not be the target of repression - litigious or otherwise."

"It has been compared to shooting a parked car and condemned as a glorified massacre, but barring any last-minute pardon the bison of Yellowstone national park will next month find themselves looking down the business end of some very high-powered rifles."

"In the first such planned event since 1990, Montana wildlife officials have chosen 50 people to hunt bison outside the north and west entrances of the park. They claim it is a necessary measure to prevent the spread of cattle disease. But animal welfare activists are planning a hunt of their own - using video cameras - to show what they say is the unfair fight between the hunter and the almost tame Yellowstone bison. ... the showdown promises to be a classic." ...

These include when an offender holding a weapon to a victim was thought to be on the brink of murder." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
