Request veto of AB 962, ammunition registration bill

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger: I most earnestly urge that you veto the ammunition registration bill, AB 962. It is a deceitfully conceived measure aimed at providing registration not only of ammunition, but also of its purchasers, and thus by extension, of firearms owners. Worse than that, it is a de facto firearms registration bill, although by caliber only, but as such is also a foot-in-the-door approach, the next obvious step being a polite police visit, ostensibly to "confirm that you still have that caliber firearm," but actually to identify visually both its make and model, and s

On September 16th Knife Rights participated in a lobby day on Capitol Hill, along with representatives of the American Knife and Tool Institute, the NRA and the Congressional Sportsmen Foundation.  Representing Knife Rights were Doug Ritter, Pete Brownell and Jason Kunkler (from www.knifecenter.com). While it was an exhausting, and at times frustrating, experience, it was clearly beneficial that House Committee and Member staff heard from us why it was so important to retain the Senate Amendment 1447 in the final Homeland Security Appropriations bill.

COMMON SENSE: Chasing Olympic Gold

Chasing Olympic Gold WASHINGTON -- At the conclusion of the 1939 movie "Gone With the Wind," Vivien Leigh, playing Scarlett O'Hara, defers decision on what to do about the major crisis in her life with this sentence: "After all, tomorrow is another day." Unfortunately, the Obama White House seems to have adopted Scarlett's decision-making process for the war in Afghanistan. Note to the O-Team: Kabul isn't Tara -- and Americans are dying while the commander in chief dithers. On Wednesday, Sept. 30, a full month after Gen.

PROFESSIONAL CONTEST

TOO FEW, TOO FAR - PART II

The Falklands War of 1982 was one of the defining conflicts of the decade. The United Kingdom fought a war practically on its own thousands of miles from home. However, the conflict spread wider – and included the island of South Georgia, where Royal Marine Section Commander George Thomsen would become a legend. Part II continues with the bloody battle.
