"The California State Assembly has just approved AB996. It will now go to the Senate."

"This bill, dubbed 'Safe Ammunition Storage Legislation' would require retailers to lock up their ammunition in the same manner that firearms are required to be locked up at California firearm retail locations. The Democratic Caucus claims 'It is estimated that 8-10 billion bullets were sold in the United States in 2002. Many of those bullets were purchased by those who acquired their guns illegally using straw buyers, those who stole guns, and those who purchased on the secondary market.' Of course we don't really know what constitutes 'many' bullets. And they offer no direct proof that ammunition was purchased by those who 'acquired their guns illegally.'" ...

"Police departments must use race and sex preferences in hiring as a result of federal court consent decrees and political pressures. To meet these demands, many police departments have lowered, and in some cases eliminated, established standards for personal character and intellectual and physical capacity."

"Jan Golab writes about this in 'How Racial P.C. Corrupted the LAPD' in the May 2005 issue of The American Enterprise. While most of Mr. Golab's article chronicles how Los Angeles damaged its police force in its quest for "diversity," where it's had to fire 100 police officers, identical damage has occurred in other cities. Washington, D.C., had to indict or fire 250 cops; New Orleans indicted more than 100. ..." ...

"The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, and the New York State Conservation Council are screaming red alert in reference to A02466, which passed the Assembly last week. ..."

"The new bill redefines assault weapons to include a broader scope. It does not, however, ban semiautomatic .22s or shotguns as some claim. ... In essence, if a semiautomatic rifle can be fitted with a magazine that holds 10 or more rounds, it's illegal to sell. If you've already got one, special licensing is required." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm . . . is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege. [Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54 (1878)]
