"In 1989, California was the first state in the nation to enact a ban on a specific list of semi-automatic rifles dubbed 'Assault Weapons.' In 1999, the ban was expanded to include a wider array of semi-automatic rifles. ..." ...

"On July 16, 2006, the Fifty Caliber Institute reported that the Los Angeles County Gun Task Force in CA has begun serving search warrants on residents in that county who are suspected of holding un-registered 'Assault Rifles' including 50 BMG target rifles. The task force has confiscated and issued felony charges on at least one individual who was deemed to be out of compliance. If convicted on a felony, that individual will never be allowed to legally own any firearms for the rest of his life." ...

"Taken from this week's 'Page Nine' Alan Korwin's 'The Uninvited Ombudsman Report'"

"The lamestream media told you:"

"The tiny 'Register & Bee' in Danville, Virginia, reports that a shooting victim has died."

"The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:"

"Luckily, the victim is fine. The man mistakenly identified as the victim was actually the criminal, shot and killed while invading an occupied home. The innocent victim of his felony assault was unharmed and is said to be doing well."

"The headline, 'Victim Identified in North Avenue Shooting,' should have read, 'Heroic Armed Homeowner Dispatches Perp During Dangerous Felony Invasion.' Imagine the effect headlines like that would start having on crime." ...

"While on a voyage to India, young Samuel Colt carved his idea of a revolving cylinder and a single pistol barrel out of a block of wood. ... Later, this wooden prototype would be built out of steel. Since then, the design of the revolver has transfixed the shooting world."

"A revolver is unique in the firearm industry. No other product allows the user to shoot from the pocket and fire light practice loads, heavy defensive rounds or shotshells from the same gun. A revolver does not require a magazine in order to feed it more bullets. It is the simplest, lowest maintenance and inherently accurate handgun to operate. Almost any revolver can take years of abuse and deliver the same performance as the day it was purchased." ...

"Deer hunting is one of the major seasons in Oklahoma. What would you do if you were doing just that and a huge bear charges you? ..."

"He was out deer hunting when a large grizzly bear charged him from about 50 yards away. The guy emptied his 7mm Magnum semi-automatic rifle into the bear, and it dropped a few feet from him. The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot it several times in the head."

"The big bear was just over one thousand six hundred pounds. It stood 12 feet, six inches high at the shoulder and 14 feet to the top of his head. It is the largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world. Just imagine an animal of these proportions charging straight at you ..." ...

Submitter's Note: "But why would you need an AK-47 to hunt deer?"

"Amidst revelations that one of the most irresponsible gun dealers in the nation sits on the Board of the National Rifle Association, the House Judiciary Committee today is considering legislation designed to hide rogue dealers from public scrutiny, emasculate the power of federal law enforcers to put them out of business and make it easier for gun traffickers to cross state lines to patronize them."

"'The House Judiciary Committee today considers the NRA's Special Interest Extravaganza of gun bills,' said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. 'If the NRA has its way today, corrupt gun dealers and their gun trafficker friends will literally take it to the bank.'" ...

"The Washington Post's front page on Sunday illustrated the problems with both the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives abuses as well as the media’s out-of-control attacks.

"The penalties vary, with fines and penalties for clerical errors being smaller than those for sellers who knowingly sell to people they are not supposed to."

"Current law offers no penalties, just written warnings and then revocation of their license to sell firearms."

"Coble, who serves as chairman of the subcommittee on crime, terrorism and homeland security, said that the bill came about as a result of a subcommittee hearing earlier this year where complaints were lodged against ATF for 'heavy-handed law enforcement' practices at gun shows in Richmond." ...

"'We ought to try and avoid violence — we have way too much of that in this society,' said Senate Minority Leader Bob Emerson, D-Flint."

"'I want to thank U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales for his commitment to prioritizing the prosecution of illegal gun trafficking across the nation and I want thank U.S. Attorney Chuck Rosenberg and his team for their dogged pursuit of this particular case. The indictment of these 11 individuals for running guns from Virginia to New York City proves that the fight against illegal guns can be won when local, state and federal law enforcement work together to enforce the law and punish those individuals who break it. When illegal guns flow freely across state borders, innocent people die. The continued pursuit of gun traffickers and rogue gun dealers ... will ensure that we keep guns out of the hands of criminals and off of our city streets ..."
 

MA: Romney approves exemption for specialty target pistol
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
FULL TEXT BELOW:

Governor Romney has signed legislation that allows sellers of specialty target pistols to do business in Massachusetts.

The bill gives the pistol makers an exemption from a requirement that forced them to test at least five examples of all new guns until they were destroyed.

The law aims to prevent accidental discharges.

But the specialty pistols sell in small numbers, and at higher costs than regular guns. Pistol makers decided the requirement made it uneconomical to sell the guns in Massachusetts.

James Wallace, head of the state Gun Owner's Action League, said target shooters will be pleased with the change.

"Nebraska seems to be right on track when it comes to concealed weapons."

"And, despite law enforcement's justified concerns, a concealed weapon ban was lifted in Omaha and doesn't seem likely to be imposed in Lincoln." [emphasis added]

"That leaves Kearney as the only city in the state prohibiting the carrying of a concealed weapon."

"Only 19,500 people ... are expected to apply for the permits ..."

"To do so, each of the applicants will have to visit the Nebraska State Patrol office in North Platte or one of the other five around the state. They'll also need to pass a training course ... and a criminal background check. The permits will have to be renewed every five years." ...

"'That's not unusual,' Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said yesterday ... 'Those are the cops who are out on the streets.'"

"Kelly said ... [t]hey often work at night in high-crime areas."

"Regarding the letter written by James A. Farmer about the San Francisco ordinance to ban handguns, which was overturned by a Superior Court judge, I question his choice of words. He stated that had this socialist ordinance become law, 'all San Francisco residents would have been politically targeted, jailed without due process for a minimum of 90 days and up to six months in the local Gulag, if caught in possession of a handgun.' He goes on to say that owning a handgun is morally sound."

"I happen to be a socialist or progressive (a more politically correct word for some people) who knows a number of people in the bay area, family and friends, none of whom carry or own a handgun. It is a matter of morals for me, and I would guess most of those who deem it unwise and unnecessary, to carry a handgun." ...
