Gun laws' effect on crime seems minimal
"The idea of certainty of punishment -- the guts of the bill -- is an idea whose time has come. (Michigan needs) to make it clear that anyone who is convicted of a gun-related crime will go to prison. Period."

In a partisan demonstration that according to the Washington Times has been described by critics as "a slickly produced media event bankrolled by Democrats," about half a million men, women and children jammed the National Mall in front of the U.S. Capitol and listened to celebrities and overwhelmingly Democrat politicians demand more gun control legislation.
Are you tired of all the anti-gun messages & anti-firearms propaganda being crammed down our throats by the gun grabbers and the socialist politicians?
Are you fed up with the unbalanced reporting and media bias against law abiding gun owners, the shooting sports and the firearms industry?
Have you had enough of the "Army of Gun Lies" that the anti-freedom, anti-gun lobby has been preaching as the truth?
Would you like to see and hear some pro-gun, pro-self-defense, pro-freedom radio, TV and newspaper ads that tell the truth about lawful firearms ownership?
If you answered yes to these questions, you need to support Citizens of America.

Gore's All-Out Assault on Gun Owners
The Smith & Wesson Sell Out!
A Gunnery Network Editorial By Marv Stenhammar
In a surprise move, British owned Smith & Wesson caved in to mounting legal pressure and signed a deal with the Clinton administration, in what most gun owners are calling a Sell Out. Reaction from the administration has been to heap praise on S&W and to encourage various armed federal agencies, states, cities and municipalities to make firearms purchases from S&W. HUD announced they would make every effort to purchase firearms from S&W and other gun companies who signed the agreement. As of this date, no other gun companies have signed up for the Clinton HUD gun deal. An administration spokesman said they are very pleased with the agreement and with Smith & Wesson.
The reaction from gun owners and firearms dealers has been exactly the opposite, with most gun dealers, including S&W's two largest wholesale distributors, RSR and Davidsons, canceling all orders for S&W products and announcing that they were to immediately stop buying and selling all Smith & Wesson firearms and associated products. This impromptu "boycott" has now been followed by an official message from GOA - Gun Owners of America, one of the nations largest gun rights organizations, calling for an official Boycott of S&W. The NRA and several other firearms activists call this agreement a sell out that threatens the Firearms Industry and private gun ownership.
The national media is reporting that the agreement calls for trigger locks and improved safety measures that make the agreement seem like a no brainier. However the "devil" is in the details and as Dave Kopel puts it in his article below this is indeed a "Faustian Bargain". Did S&W make a deal with the devil and sell there sole and the civil rights of all American gun owners for a quick reprieve from the nonsense suits and legal fees they faced? I think so. I believe that the law suits pending against the firearms industry will be thrown out or lost. Many have already been thrown out and several more face dismissal. I encourage gun owners and the Firearms Industry as a whole to stand together and to continue to fight for freedom and our basic human rights to own firearms. As the founders said "We must all hang together... or we may all hang separately."
Gun owners and freedom loving individuals should take this opportunity to show there disdain for Slick & Wesson and this foolish agreement by refusing to purchase S&W products and by contacting Smith & Wesson executives and customer service representatives at the following contact numbers and e-mail addresses.
We should also all show our support and encouragement to the Firearms Manufacturers that have announced they will not sign a deal with the devil by calling them up and thinking them for their support of freedom and by purchasing their products in lieu of any Slick & Wesson products.

the government is online at the HUD website
