Hurricane Katrina Inspired Gun Bill an Assault on Common Sense
Submitted by: New York State Rifle & Pistol Association

"Statement of Rep. Carolyn McCarthy on HR 5013, legislation that would tie the hands of law enforcement by not allowing apprehension of those wielding guns in public areas following a natural disaster or terrorist attack. The bill would also allow guns in emergency relief shelters. The legislation passed the House by a vote of 322 to 99"

"'Once again, this Congress is waging war on common sense. And once again, the gun-lobby is using police officers as a prop in another pre-election fear-mongering campaign.'"

"'While House leadership accuses the New Orleans police department of going door to door confiscating guns in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the superintendent of the department states that was not the case. ...'" ...
 

Guns and crime

"One proven way to reduce urban crime is to choke off the supply of guns on the street. [KABA Note: Proven by whom? Please cite the source for your assertion.] And one sure way to do that is for police to track where the guns are coming from. That information helps law enforcement target black market and rogue dealers."

Yet incredibly, a bill in the House could turn the tables on police officers everywhere by making it a federal crime for them to share information about firearms with one another. The proposed legislation is yet another indication of the power the gun lobby wields in Washington. No surprise there. But it is unsettling that such an outrageous proposal could even find a sponsor, much less begin to wend its way through the legislative process." ...

"... Sure enough, now, a whimsical, serendipitous fate has brought the issue of gun ownership rights for citizens before the U.S. House of Representatives ..."

"Our duly elected reps 'represented' boldly yesterday when they passed by a wide margin a measure preventing law enforcement officials from confiscating legally owned weapons during a period of emergency. The roots of this law are in the post-Hurricane Katrina hullabaloo in New Orleans last year. At that time, in an effort to maintain order -- or, better said, to reimpose it -- the embattled chief of police, Eddie Compass, ordered all firearms to be confiscated. Naturally, the onus fell mostly on legal owners, their title being duly recorded." ...

"During the first week of this month ... the UN (United Nations), meeting on American soil, was busy trying to finalize a treaty that would strip all citizens of all nations of their right to self-protection, and strip you and me of our rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment. The good news is that the [Conference] ended in deadlock with no formal conclusions or recommendations, and without a worldwide ban on civilian firearms ownership, which was their real goal. ... They do not understand that our freedoms are not to blame for the worlds problems; and, while the UN ignores slavery, genocide, and mass murder in other countries, they persist in their attempts to infringe on our sovereignty. ..."

"The billboards that are planned to address gun violence in Cincinnati will not stop bullets and will not stop the killings, not one of them, but it will remind us of what else desperately must be done."

"We need a gun control ordinance like they have in Morton Grove, Ill., that bans the possession and ownership of handguns. We need a buy-back program where the city will buy back handguns. We need the churches to go out in the neighborhoods and beg people to bring their handguns and anonymously drop them off at the church office. We need to get some of those for whom guns are important symbols and means of livelihood to come on our side and preach the way of Jesus and Mohammed and Abraham, and not the way of the gun. ..." ...

"Amidst this editorial's many illogical conclusions, it neglects to clarify one important point: How would the enactment of a city-wide ban of handguns convince criminals that are robbing, raping, and murdering the citizens of Cincinnati to finally turn their lives around and abandon their weapons?"

"If current laws forbidding the illegal use of firearms are not a deterrent to those criminals (even if it is their first time), why would this legislation be any different? ..." ...

"Marylanders can lend a gun to a friend without going through the seven-day waiting period and background check required by state law before guns can be transferred or sold to a new owner, according to a ruling by the state's highest court."

"The Court of Appeals, in a 4-3 decision, said lending a gun to another person does not constitute 'transfer' of a weapon and therefore is not covered by the gun control law dealing with the waiting period and police background checks of potential buyers."

"The ruling came in an appeal filed by a D.C. police officer who had lent a handgun to a friend. The friend's guns had been confiscated by police because he had a Glock pistol in his car but did not have a permit to carry it." ...

"Once the month of August arrives, fall is just around the corner. Many hunters use this time of the year for a little badly needed target practice, tuning up the eye for the coming season."

"One form of target shooting which has been around a long time is trap and skeet, and these shotgun sports are great for waterfowl hunters or upland game-bird hunters. Trap and skeet are also practiced regularly by many people just for the fun of it. In fact there are a lot of folks participating in this form of shooting practice who never venture out to hunt in the fall." ...

"'Under Project Safe Neighborhoods, federal law allows us to prosecute the adults who traffic firearms to kids,' said U.S. Attorney Pat Meehan, who called the conference. 'We'll have a system in place so that, when a gun is recovered, the school district can immediately reach out to both A.T.F. and Philadelphia police, who can then expedite the trace on the firearm and find the seller. This will help us disrupt the flow of guns to juveniles and ultimately make our schools safer.'" ...
