|Rudy Guliani has really stuck a stick in a hornets nest by being on radio advertisements supporting a trigger lock requirement and a 1,000 gun free school zone around all schools in NYC. Opponents of the ban say that it will prevent anyone who legally owns any type of firearm from owning the firearm and keeping it even in their own house. We know that gun owners in NYC are very lucky that this bill did not pass. Rudy's support of the bill will not sit well with the gun owners in the rest of the state in his next race.|
Tom DeLay, House Majority Whip has started another pro-gun group trying to raise money for pro-gun candidates. Give him the money if you want and if you do not just tell him that you give all your money to the NRA (or GOA or other group,) to give out.

TV Channel "E " gossip section "ask?marilyn beck" held "The 1999 Tacky Taste Awards." http://www.eonline.com/Gossip/Marilyn/index2.html
Guess who was #1? To quote the web page:
Tackiest Celeb of the Year, pretty much exclusively for her on-air ambush of NRA spokesman Tom Selleck. "It was mean-spirited to invite a guest just to attack him. Mr. Selleck made her look like a fool!" wrote MEKt from Belle Chasse, Louisiana. "Rosie needs to get off her high horse," said Michele J. of Oxnard, California, "It's a talk show, not a soapbox." We should mention that Rosie had her defenders, too--which just goes to show that tackiness is, er, a matter of taste.
(Rosie and K-Mart have announced that she will no longer do spots for K-Mart.)
Readers's Digest November, 1999 Magazine has a wonderful article called "Gun Control That Works" by Kenneth Smith. It outlines how Project Exile is working and how it was started in Richmond, VA. Join the debate on gun control at www.readersdigest.com.
(Odd that they would not also bring up that
two of the major changes over the past few years is that more criminals
have been put in jail under tougher sentencing laws and 3 strikes and your
out laws. And also many more states have enacted right to carry laws
and changed existing laws to be "shall issue" laws.)
Today on CNN Wolf Blitzer read from Friday's Washington Post editorial,
"The sale, manufacture, and possession of handguns ought to be banned. Whatever liberty interest there may be in the ability to own guns.... it pales in comparison with the right to go to school or work without fear of being shot".
Senator Diane Feinstein beamed. "Well, you know, I happen to agree with that. I come from a state where weapons have really wrecked (sic) terrible destruction. And we know that every day in this nation some 12 to 13 children are killed and another two thousand (sic) have been killed with guns since Columbine."
"I will shortly be introducing legislation to provide for a precise system of registration and licensing of every weapon in this country, much as automobiles are registered and drivers are licensed. You know, automobiles don't kill people, people driving automobiles kill people."
"I will also introduce legislation requiring a turn-in of assault weapons and a program to recompense people when they turn in their weapons. We have hundreds of millions of guns. There is nothing in the second amendment that says we can't regulate the kind and type and shooting capacity of those weapons".
