Assault weapons battle rejoined
Feinstein fights to reinstate law that expired after 10 years
Edward Epstein, Chronicle Washington Bureau

Saturday, February 26, 2005

Washington -- California Sen. Dianne Feinstein renewed one of Washington's long- running and most bitterly fought battles Friday, saying she will introduce legislation seeking to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban that expired in September after 10 years.

Gun control has been a signature issue for Feinstein since she arrived in the Senate in 1993. But the odds she faces to pass the weapons ban in the current Congress are probably steeper than they were in 1993, when the Senate narrowly approved the ban, or last March, when it passed 52-47 before dying in the body.

November's election increased the 100-member Senate's number of Republicans from 51 to 55, and there are at least four new solid votes against Feinstein's proposal.

In the House, gun control advocates face an even tougher time because Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., and Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, have said they won't let the renewal legislation come up for a vote.

While President Bush said he would sign renewal legislation if Congress passed it last year, critics said he never did anything to encourage passage, fearing such a move would upset his conservative base as he sought re-election.

"We're cautiously optimistic,'' said National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam, that the Feinstein bill won't pass the Senate this year. "But we recognize the fact that this is Washington, D.C., and we take nothing for granted.''

In a statement, Feinstein said she hoped Republican leaders would help pass the assault weapons law again.

"This time, I hope for the safety of all Americans, President Bush, Senate Majority Leader (Bill) Frist and Speaker Hastert will help re-enact this important legislation," she said.

In disclosing her decision, Feinstein cited the shooting deaths Thursday of two Los Angeles city workers by a co-worker apparently armed with an AK-47 rifle as an example of why the law is needed.

"Once again, we've seen the tragic consequence of the ready availability of assault weapons throughout our society,'' she said.

The NRA and its allies are so opposed to the assault weapons law that they scuttled their own pet legislation last March that would have protected gun manufacturers against liability lawsuits. The assault weapons ban, offered by Feinstein as an amendment to the liability legislation, was approved as were amendments closing a loophole on gun show sales and one requiring trigger locks, which was sponsored by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.

After those amendments were approved, the overall bill was defeated, killing the effort to renew the assault weapons ban.

The gun liability legislation has been reintroduced and again provides a possible vehicle for the Feinstein and Boxer amendments.

The proposed ban covers 19 types of semiautomatic weapons and ammunition clips of more than 10 rounds. But it permits guns that were around before the ban.

Critics such as the NRA say the law was ineffective during its decade on the books, in part because it permitted slightly altered versions of many of the weapons to stay on the market.

Assault weapons ban urged following deaths of LA workers

Friday, February 25, 2005

(02-25) 17:52 PST Los Angeles (AP) --


Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Friday that she will reintroduce legislation banning assault weapons after a city maintenance worker allegedly shot and killed two fellow employees with an AK-47 assault rifle.


"Once again, we've seen the tragic consequences of the ready availability of assault weapons throughout our society," Feinstein, D-Calif., said in a statement.


Thomas Sampson, 25, was booked for investigation of first-degree murder early Friday for the deaths of his supervisor, Rene Flores, 54, and co-worker Ricardo Garris, 49, police said.


Sampson, who was held without bail, turned himself in Thursday after the late afternoon shooting, said Officer April Harding, a police spokeswoman.


Garris, of Inglewood, and Flores, of the Sunland area, both had worked for the Bureau of Street Services for more than 20 years. The department fills potholes, fixes curbs and distributes asphalt in the city.


Feinstein in her statement said the shooting occurred just days before the anniversary of a Senate vote to extend the assault weapons ban for 10 years. The legislation expired after President Bush failed to urge Republican leaders to move the legislation, Feinstein said.


Feinstein said she intends to reintroduce the legislation next week and she hoped for support from Republican leaders.


Mayor James Hahn also sent a letter to Congress urging renewal of the assault weapons ban. Though the city and state have laws banning assault weapons, they are still readily available across the state's borders, Hahn said.


"Therefore, it is critical to have an assault weapons ban that prohibits the manufacture, importation and sale of assault weapons and ammunition throughout the United States," he said.


Sampson and Flores earlier Thursday afternoon had a dispute over Sampson being late for work, police said. Sampson later abandoned his city-owned truck on Interstate 10 in west Los Angeles and took a bus to where he parked his car. He then drove home, changed from his work clothes into a suit, armed himself with the AK-47 and drove to the field office where he waited for Flores, confronted him and shot him, police alleged.


Garris was shot because he happened to be in the office when Flores was attacked, police said.

Feinstein to push assault-weapon ban

Shooting prompts senator to reintroduce bill

Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Friday that she will reintroduce legislation banning assault weapons after a city maintenance worker allegedly shot and killed two fellow employees with an AK-47 assault rifle.

GOAL Post 2005-7


Legislative Update from Olympia
18 February 2005



ANTI-GUN BILLS REMAIN STALLED... FOR NOW

PUBLIC HEARING ON LEAD SHOT BAN BILL

LEAD SHOT TAX BILL STILL CIRCULATING

PUBLIC HEARING SCHEDULED FOR HB 1687

65 DAYS REMAIN IN SESSION

KEEP CALLING YOUR SENATOR AND REPRESENTATIVES


The various gun ban bills heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee three
weeks ago remain stalled in committee. The nominal date for committee
cut-off, where bills that have not passed out of their original policy
committee are considered dead, is less than two weeks away. Under
normal circumstances, once March 2nd has passed, we can breathe a sigh
of relief. Unfortunately the cut-off dates are arbitrary dates set at
the beginning of each legislative session and can be waived if a
majority of the chamber (House of Senate) so votes. Any incident that
would call attention to one or all of the gun bills may instigate action
on a bill, along with mainstream media editorializing for more gun laws.
Senators Hargrove (D-24), Johnson (R-47), McCaslin (R-4), Carrell (R-28)
and Esser (R-48) continue to deserve our thanks and encouragement to
"just say no."

A public hearing on HB 1822, the lead shot ban bill, was conducted by
the House Natural Resources, Ecology and Parks Committee on Tuesday,
February 15th. On the down side, turnout by gun owners was somewhat
disappointing. We may have set expectations too high with the nearly
400 citizens who attended the 25 January hearing with the Senate
Judiciary Committee!

The hearing went well never-the-less. Approximately ten individuals
representing most major gun and hunting groups in Washington testified
against HB 1822, along with a representative of the Department of Fish &
Wildlife. Only two individuals testified in favor, a lady from the Swan
Society and a gentleman from the Audubon Society (who acknowledged that
more study needed to be done on this issue), along with the bill's
sponsor, Rep. Ruth Kagi (D-32). Both Republican and Democrat committee
members had some sharp questions for the bill's supporters as well. AT
THIS TIME it does not appear there are sufficient votes to move the bill
out of committee.

There is still no word on when the bill will be filed by Rep. Ruth Kagi
(D-32-Shoreline) to impose a regressive tax on lead shot statewide.
Specific details of the bill are not available, but clearly the Seattle
area gun ban caucus is coming at us from all directions. If you think
you are safe because you don't own an "assault weapon" or a .50 BMG
caliber rifle, think again. They're after it all, one step at a time.

On Friday, February 25th, the House Judiciary Committee will conduct a
public hearing on HB 1687, a bill that ensures individuals found not
guilty by reason of insanity incur the same firearms restriction(s) as
someone found guilty of the same offense. In effect a "guilty by reason
of insanity" finding. We are taking a neutral position on this bill and
likely will NOT testify on it.

65 days remain in this year's 105 day session. We still need to be
alert to procedural manipulation or "deal cutting" as various cut-off
deadlines approach. This is the biennial budget year, where billions of
taxpayer dollars are being doled out. Gun control advocates may offer
pork barrel projects in return for votes on gun bills. Eternal
vigilance is the price of freedom!

We still need to keep positive pressure on our Senators and
Representatives and urge them to "just say no" to any and all gun ban
bills. A coalition of Republicans and rural Democrats (who tend to be
socially conservative) have so far stopped the Seattle gang in its
tracks. As we have seen in the past few weeks, elected officials DO
respond to public pressure. A brief BUT POLITE call or e-mail asking
them to oppose ANY infringement on your right to keep and bear arms can
continue to work miracles! You can call them toll free via the
Legislative Hotline at (800) 562-6000, or visit the legislative web site

Representatives" at the top of the page to access their direct phone

It seems to me a Well Armed Citizens Militia should take the fight to the Capitol! Enough of this Horse Shit once and for all! It's time the PEOPLE take charge and go after all those responsible! It would seem appropriate for Preemptive Action right NOW! Otherwise, you can Kiss your Firearms and every other right down the Toilet....For those in Oregon, STOCK UP NOW!!!! Should the fight begin at your door! Prepare, Organize, and BE READY!

WELCOME TO OREGON

I'm just sitting here flabbergasted, amazed, and with the ominous realization that these bastards are not going to be satisfied until every single firearm in civilian possession, in America, is destroyed, as per globalist and U.N. instigation. Then we can no longer properly call ourselves citizens of The United States of America, "the land of the free and the home of the brave." We will have become, at such a moment in history, subjects to an oligarchy in this nation (which no longer fears the citzenery it worked for), the Constitution will become null and void, and we will be under the yoke of a world government, most likely emanating from Europe (Brussels, Berlin, Vienna, Rome,... take your pick)!!! blink.gif ohmy.gif sad.gif mad.gif Regards, Walter

All in the Pacific northwest should be heating up the phone lines! Give'em HELL!!!

I suppose that if Sen. Finklestein had her way, those two in L.A. would've been killed with cast iron skillets, then those would be banned next! blink.gif

Walter, you're right, I hate to say. That bunch is like a rabid dog that doesn't know when to stop and won't. Our only hope is to first, contact our elected officals at the state and national levels. And second, back up our words with votes. If you don't like their record, fire'em! If you don't vote, you have no right to complain. Unfourtunatly, people tend to have a short memory...

Guys, it is even worse than you may realize!! It won't merely be U.N. and foreign military and police forces taking your guns. The U.N. desires the cooperation of individual States (Nations), and their local police forces!! ohmy.gif blink.gif sad.gif mad.gif

P.S. Go to the following official U.N. website! http://www.un.org/ Click on Welcome. Then click on search at the bottom of the page. Click on select search areas or use the search box and find the following press release, sc/6397, from 1997. It is not possible to link directly to this article. I'm not surprised!! I guarantee that it will be an eye-opener!!!

P.P.S. The U.N. is seeking global gun control with conference moving toward plan that would regulate U.S. arms!
