New York congressman with mob ties proposed national handgun registration bill

A bill, HR 613, introduced by Congressman Anfuso, New York, in the Congress, would require everyone who owns a pistol to register it with the Director of the F.B.I. Every pistol would be registered separately, as to caliber, maker, serial number, number of cartridges held, and from whom the gun was obtained, plus "Such other information as the director may by regulation prescribe."

This afternoon's Gun Rights Examiner commentary says "Fuggedaboutit."

The Wrong Questions

Should private cab companies, regulated by the city, have authority to arm their drivers? Is there evidence that guns, or knowing that drivers have guns, would deter criminals? Should passengers with valid permits be allowed to carry in a cab, too? [More]

A Sharp Letter Opener

As the Chair of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee in the State of New Hampshire, I am writing to you to set the record straight regarding the statement posted on your website about HB330. You have been given misinformation (I prefer not to call anyone a liar) by your state NRA-ILA representative, John Hohenwarter. I do not appreciate his unprofessional behavior, which has been contrary and harmful to NRA’s reputation.  [More]
We discussed this here.


Can't wait to see the response.

Why is ATF considering ‘early outs’ for experienced employees?

With senior Agents retiring as fast as they can because of the Gross Mismanagement, why would the Agency be trying to encourage even more?

Another lie? [More]
This morning's Gun Rights Examiner commentary looks at the advantages of early retirement--for those with something to hide.
