"A gun-control group and its political action committee have paid a $12,000 fine to settle a campaign finance case from the 2000 election."

"At issue were ads and endorsements by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and its Brady Voter Education Fund involving various Democratic candidates in 2000."

"The American Conservative Union, in a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, accused the Brady organizations of making illegal corporate contributions to the Democrats' campaigns."
 

Straight Shooting on Gun Control

"When it comes to rancorous debates in which the two sides routinely talk past each other, gun control ranks up there with abortion and the death penalty. Last year Abigail A. Kohn, an anthropologist trained at the University of California at San Francisco, bravely waded into this battle with Shooters: Myths and Realities of America’s Gun Cultures (Oxford University Press). A sympathetic portrait of gun enthusiasts in Northern California, the book ends with a plea for a calmer discussion of guns and crime. Reason asked Kohn to summarize her argument and invited responses from three people with an interest in this area: civil liberties lawyer Don B. Kates, journalist Wendy Kaminer, and law professor Michael I. Krauss."

"The left-leaning media like to point out that their polls show that even gun owners support 'sensible gun legislation.' The problem is simply that is an oxymoron, at least with some in our state legislature."

"Here are two examples of gun control bills that are just plain ignorant, and what is most frightening is that both of them are moving toward floor votes in their respective houses."

"I talk about guns with people on occasion at gatherings. Some of them are responsible gun owners who are knowledgeable on the laws and go to a firing range regularly to practice."

"Then there are folks who live in a dream world that believe that just having a gun in the house or car somehow protects them from harm. That makes no sense especially since many of these guns have been stashed in dresser drawers or glove compartments from the time they were purchased and haven't been fired once. A person with this mindset will most likely make the wrong decision when confronted with trouble."

"Tampa Police officers are concerned that a toy gun found in a motel could wind up in the hands of kids. Officers say they would easily confuse this gun with a real gun if someone pointed it at them." ...

"It has a drop clip, it sounds like a real gun and you can even hear the mechanism cocking."

"And that's the toy. Most police officers say they'd have a tough time, especially in when surprised by it in a high stress situation....The gun even comes with a real laser site."

"For a company that packs so much heat, Serbu Firearms keeps a low profile."

"There's no sign on its front door. The place is unobtrusively tucked in a row of auto body shops in a no-frills industrial park next to the Veterans Expressway in Town 'N Country."

"Nothing would tip you off that, behind that unmarked door, local entrepreneur Mark Serbu and his crew are manufacturing powerful .50-caliber rifles, right on the edge of what's legal."

"The magazine writer had already chosen his headline - 'Shootout in the Gunshine State' - so it's fortunate that the football game turned out to be one of the best ever. Shaking his head, he told me he was going to write in SI how one of the first folks he'd met upon landing in Miami was a filling station attendant with a gun on his hip."

"Perhaps feeling obliged to defend my home state, I pointed out that (a) a holstered pistol is not a concealed weapon, (b) although the law had been signed, the state was not yet issuing 'conceal to carry' permits and (c) there were probably guns under the counters of some gas stations and convenience stores he had stopped at on his way up here. But southerners can't talk guns to New Yorkers because they've made their city so safe."

"Two Redfield City Council members resigned - and the mayor has threatened to follow them out the door - after long-standing battles police chief Dave Roberts erupted in fireworks Tuesday night."

"Merry Lee Novak and James Countryman have both resigned, storming out in the middle of the city council meeting."

"Roberts sells assault rifles out of his home on the side, and he is accused of using his police department cell phone to arrange some of those sales."

"Novak said she was concerned that, as an elected official, she personally could be sued if Robert's city-supplied cell phone is used to sell a gun that is later used in a crime."

"Now that the federal government has allowed its ban on assault weapons to lapse, it is up to the states to enact and enforce such a prohibition."

"A bill before the Maine Legislature would do exactly that."

"The bill would make it illegal in Maine to own, transfer or manufacture assault weapons or .50-caliber rifles and ammunition."

"The prohibition on assault weapons in Maine makes sense and should become law, while the bill's other restrictions related to .50-caliber rifles and ammunition should be removed."

"Mark Yost, the Pioneer Press' staff mouthpiece for the National Rifle Association, has surprised nobody by stating that any law restricting guns is bad. Last week, his case in point (column, April 26) was the assault weapons ban, which expired in September. I agree with Yost on one issue — that the assault weapons ban was imperfect. The criminal use of banned weapons dropped during the ban. But the criminal use of non-banned assault-type weapons increased. Yost's solution to an imperfect law with loopholes is … you guessed it. Loosen all gun laws further." ...

"This time, just like last time, I say that conceal and carry "doesn't have much effect on crime one way or the other." And this time, I still think it's a bad idea to give handgun permits to people who have been convicted of stalking, harassment, coercion or DWI, as this law does. I still think it's a bad idea to give handgun permits to people who have displayed delusional behavior, as this law does. I still think it's a bad idea to treat trespass with a firearm like a parking violation — as this law does."

"The 2005 SportsFest is number eight for the Pleasant Valley Trout and Game Club. Attendance has been a bit of a roller coaster ride in past years. But it should not be much of a problem this time around. Ken Foster and the other organizers have teamed up with the Boy Scouts of America. Almost 300 scouts and their adult leaders are already pre-registered."

"Along with Satterwhite's two shows, there will be more than a dozen other activities to hold everyone's attention. Shooting demonstrations and hands-on opportunities with bow and arrow, air guns, laser guns, .22-caliber rifles, shotguns and a paintball course through the woods should give everyone the opportunity to do some shooting."

"While such permits have been authorized in Missouri for more than a year, St. Louis and St. Louis County have refused to issue any. This has led many area residents to apply for permits from states such as Pennsylvania, Utah and Florida. They allow out-of-state applications, and Missouri honors their permits."

"A change in Missouri's law, expected to be approved next week, is forcing the city and county to fall in line with the rest of the state. This has local law enforcement officials bracing for an influx of permit applications, an influx that many local gun experts believe won't happen."

"A committee of volunteers with the Izaak Walton League of Madison have been supervising the rifle range since the range reopened in late August."

"Lake County Commissioners temporarily closed the range last July after a stray bullet allegedly struck the windshield of a vehicle parked in the Citgo parking lot. The bullet was determined to have come from an individual firing an SKS semi-automatic rifle at the range."

"Thompson, a Madison resident, then called for a public meeting for anyone concerned about safety at the range. He proposed that barricades be constructed, that the range be supervised by volunteers and that the Izaak Walton League take over liability of the range."

"As the population of the Twin Cities continues to spread, gun clubs often find themselves surrounded by angry neighbors."

"In a late-session hearing, a Senate judiciary committee discussed a contentious piece of legislation that would protect shooting ranges and preserves from the demands of neighbors, who have long objected to the noise and activity. In return, the clubs would be subject to a few new restrictions and noise monitoring."

"Though residents decried what they saw as the bill's weak restrictions on clubs, legislators said it's the best deal they've been able to strike in years. The bill now goes to the Senate floor."
