THOMAS ^ | 7-28-05 | Thomas

Posted on 07/29/2005 4:37:37 PM PDT by Dan from Michigan

First off, there is one typo on the THOMAS SITE. The Kennedy Amendment was NOT agreed to like it said there. It failed 2-1.

Stabenow and Levin have to go.

Can Feinstein and Boxer go with them?

The libs did get trigger locks on pistols, don't they already do that?

Why do you think the uber-libs voted against increased penalties for using armor piercing ammo?(87-11)

I guess now it'll be a felony to sell a gun to a friend without a trigger lock?

That kinda sucks.

Yes, they do! Thanks for posting this. I was watching it today and listening to Lautenberg and Kennedy and laughing at them. Do they actually listen to the words that come out of their mouth? A BIG win for the good guys!

Stabenow and Levin have to go.

All the Rat loons have to go, obviously.

DeWine and Chafee were the only two Pubbies to vote against it.

I am so glad to see Liddy Dole and Richard Burr did proud by their NC constituents.

There were a lot of Freepers who had doubts about Liddy's position on the 2nd when she first ran for her seat. It appears that she has her head screwed on right!

This should be a slam dunk in the House. I see that Chafee and Dewine have confirmed their Rhino status. Also surprised by some of the dimocRATS that voted for it like Sheets Byrd.

Thanks for the info.

I know a lot of us feel we "won" today, even though trigger locks have now been imposed on manufactures. I suppose next they will have to be permanently affixed or some other useless B.S.

Would it be legal for a dealer to have an offer to immediately buy back a trigger-lock for $5 with a receipt? Then the dealer could simply resell the same lock over and over again.

She was without a doubt soft on it in her 2000 Presidential primary run. Supposedly in 2002 in her Senate primary run, 'somebody' sat her down and explained the facts of life to her. She's learned her lesson well.

I'm sure it's defined in the bill, most likely as a person who sells firearms to someone they know or should have know was an ineligible person, or to someone they knew or should have know was going to commit a crime with the firearm. Basically if the dealer exercises "due diligence" in verifying the eligibility to purchase a firearm, they'll be OK. Since dealers already have to call in the "instant check", or verify the person has a CHL (in some states), they already are required to exercise due diligence.

  1. Man the Gun Grabbers have been screaming, crying, and lying about this bill. And a lot more than usual. Why is that? Because this effectively cuts the head of their last best hope for bypassing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in their jihad to disarm the American People.
  2. The trigger locks requirement: Ok, it's unconstitutional, and a further infringement on legal commerce in arms, but given what the gun grabbers wanted to tack onto this bill, it could have been worse. Most of the guns I've bought in the past five years have had some sort of trigger or action lock, and most of the trigger locks were cheap and flimsy enough to be useless, but they probably meet the new requirement. In fact, a S&W pistol came with a trigger lock that couldn't be made to fit the gun; I called them up, and their own armorer could't get it to fit either around the trigger guard either. Does the ammendment specify what qualifies as a "trigger lock"? Will the BATF be able to "interpret" this into a requirement for a mukti-thousand-dollar gun vault, or can we get away with just including a cheap one dollar luggage padlock?
  3. What is the deal with the Craig Ammendment (not 1645)? It looks bad from the description. However, given who voted for it and who voted against it, it sure looks like it's a good deal.
  4. And speaking of Craig Ammendment 1645, again what's the deal? Isn't this just keeping the whole "Armor Piercing" mythology alive? Do we really need yet another "study" on so called armor piercing bullets? Boxer and Wyden voted against it, so it might be good, but I'm unconvinced.
  5. So tell me again how Hitlery is a "moderate"? Any guesses as to what she'll be hunting (and hunting with) in the inevitable photo-op in 2007?
  6. Where the hell was Smith? On some votes, he's absent, on others he votes correctly, but on others he votes wrong. I guess it doesn't matter. He permanently lost my vote when he voted to extend the Ugly-Gun-Ban the last time this bill came around. And this sort of spineless whiffle-whaffling isn't helping him one bit.

The bill will go to a Senate-house conference committee to work out the differences in the two versions. Maybe the trigger lock amendment and anything else in the bill we don't like can be modified or eliminated in that conference.

BTW, does anyone have a link to a site where the entire Senate bill as passed can be read? I would like to know what is in those amendments that were agreed to, especially the Craig amendment about collecting compensation for providing criminals with guns. I hope I'm wrong, but that sounds suspiciously like a loophole that an anti-gun judge could drive a truck through.

Ben Nelson (D-NE) almost batted .1000 today. He's more of a conservative than the Junior Senator from Nebraska.

Here's to hoping that DeSwine (RINO-OH) gets the gate in his re-election. How disgusting to call yourself a republican when you vote with the Swimmer on a 2nd Amendment issue.

Great job on this post, Dan!

I'm assuming here (and I just got back from the bar so I shouldn't be doing so) so don't take my word for this.

I think the Craig amendment only allows gun suits when the dealers/manufacturers are breaking criminal law. That's my assumption from CSPAN earlier today. I havven't had a chance to see the bill itself, so I can't say for certain.

Craig's in Idaho, so I don't expect him to give a big loophole like that. That said, I can't believe two senators from Michigan(blue, but a gun state if there ever was one) of all places would vote to ban the .30-30 either.

I probably should wait till tomorrow answering since I just got back from the bar, but I'll give it my best shot and hope I don't embarrass myself in the morning. :)

1. Why is that?
If you can't win the right way through the legislature, all that's left is judicial activism, and there it only takes one activist judge like Weinsten of NYC or Reinhardt of the 9th circuit.

2. As for trigger locks, that's easy to answer
Kohl Amendment(trigger locks) - Look up s9114 and s9115 for the exact text

3 and 4. - Unfortunatly, I don't know exactly what either Craig amendment entails as Thomas hasn't given me the text of the bills. If I don't know by Monday, I'll call his office and ask for the specifics.

5. Hitlery is only moderate by the NY Slimes Standards.

6. I beleve Smith had a family committment. Knowing Smith, that could be a good thing. When I turned on CSPAN today, Pat Roberts was on the floor chastising the senate for wasting time with debates that would not change anyone's mind. He then said that he, Feinstein, and one other senator (Smith I think) were leaving later because of family committments. Pat Roberts then stated how he'd vote, but didn't mention Smith and Feinstein's votes. DiFI is obvious. As for Gordon Smith, I remember SAF's Chair a few years back saying he's the best we can get in Oregon and that he's personally pro-gun. This was back in 2001 before that AWB vote, so I don't know what his opinion of him is today.

Michigan requires locks as well(ironically as a price to pay for a statewide ban on gun lawsuits.)

I had to sign a form saying that I had a trigger lock when I bought my gun. I don't remember if I really had one or not......;)

Unfortunatly, I don't know what's in the Craig amendments, and that's what irks the hell outta me. The Kohl Amendment on trigger locks I linked to, and the bill itself is availible in Thomas (S 397) outside of the Craig Amendments. There's no text to them.

If I don't see them by morning, I'll call his office either from home or on my morning commute and ask them for the text of the amendments.

I'm not sure the House has passed their bill this year or not(LAST year they did). I expect them to pass a duplicate version of the Senate bill that passed as they are more pro-2a than the Sinate, I mean Senate.

I expect the 2 Craig Amendments to be mostly do nothing amendments, so I'm not too worried about them. He IS from Idaho which has about as high of tolerance for gun grabbing as the 'militia' sections of my state.

Quick, run over to a Walmart and pick one up before some anti reads that and calls in BATF on you. IIRC you can get one for less than 3 bucks at Wally's place.

BTW Dan, terrific job you did today, my hat is off to you sir.

Now get yourself a cup of strong black coffee and sober up, the real celebration starts when GW signs the bill. -:)

Trigger locks is an example of "feels good" legislation. People, like you, will be given them when they buy a gun and go home and toss them in a box, or toss them out.

Still, maybe some will actually use them. That's not such a bad thing. :)

I'm with you on Craig's bona fides. He has been one of our staunchest allies in the D.C. so far, so I seriously doubt he has dropped the ball on this amendment.

Thanks again for your work today. I started another thread this morning urging calls to the Senate in support of the bill but your thread got most of the attention, which is fine with me now that it has turned out OK.

This just came in by email:

NRA-ILA Grassroots Alert Vol. 12, No. 30 7/29/05

S. 397 PASSES U.S. SENATE!!!

Thanks to your efforts, today, the U.S. Senate passed S. 397 by a strong bipartisan vote of 65-31! While this doesn't assure the bill will be enacted into law, it represents a MAJOR first step toward ending the anti-gun lobby's reign of extortion through reckless lawsuits against the firearm industry. The fight now moves to the U.S. House of Representatives, so it is critical that you once again contact your U.S. Representative and urge him/her to pass S. 397--"The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act."

As reported yesterday, an amendment by Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wisc.) passed, which requires federally licensed dealers to provide a "secure gun storage or safety device" with the sale/transfer of every handgun (does not apply to long guns). It does not require gun owners to use the device, does not apply to private transfers, and does not create any new civil liability for gun owners who choose not to use these storage devices. Virtually all new handguns today are sold with some type of secure storage or safety device. The amendment has no significant impact on current law or S. 397 itself.

The U.S. Senate rejected a slew of anti-gun amendments to S. 397 including:

Special "carve out" amendments by Sens. Corzine (D-N.J.) and Lautenberg (D-N.J.) that would have permitted reckless lawsuits by law enforcement and juveniles to continue unabated. Both were soundly defeated;

A ban on "armor piercing" ammunition (Kennedy-D-Mass.) (by a vote of 31-64) that would have banned virtually all hunting ammunition. Similar efforts have been continuously defeated by Congress, and Sen. Kennedy's most recent attempt was nothing more than anti-gun political posturing. (The Senate did adopt an amendment by Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) calling for increased penalties if "armor piercing" handgun ammunition is used in the commission of a crime.), and;

A "gutting" amendment by Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) that sought to continue to allow the very types of suits S. 397 prohibits (by a vote of 33-63).

This long overdue victory marks the culmination of your tireless efforts--your phone calls, faxes, letters, e-mails, and personal meetings--over the past few days, and over the past many years. As critical as these efforts were, this victory also highlights your importance in volunteering and voting for pro-gun candidates running for office. Without your steadfast work in past election years to elect more pro-gun U.S. Senators, we simply would not have had enough votes to pass this bill in the Senate.

Defeating former Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) in the 2004 elections (Daschle, as you'll recall was the architect who last year allowed the bill to be loaded up with anti-gun amendments), and thus elevating Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), a consistent and longstanding supporter of S. 397, to that leadership position represented a major step toward guaranteeing we finally received a fair procedure to bring this measure up for a final vote, and carried out the will of a majority of the U.S. Senate. And of course, members should express their gratitude to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.), Senator Minority Leader Harry Reid, and bill sponsors Sens. Larry Craig and Max Baucus (D-Mont.) for their leadership and stewardship on S. 397.

While this fight is far from over, the Senate's action today enabled us to overcome a major hurdle in enacting this legislation into law. All of us at NRA-ILA thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for your continued vigilance in seeing this bill through the U.S. Senate. You deserve a lion's share of the credit, and we know you will help us finish the job once and for all by now contacting your U.S. Representative and urging him/her to support "The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act."

(For a list of roll call votes on these amendments and final passage of S. 397, go to www.NRAILA.org. Take note of how your Senators voted, and please thank those who voted in support of gun owners and let those who voted against our rights know that you will keep their votes in mind when they are up for re-election. BE SURE TO ALSO ATTEND ANY OF YOUR U.S. REPRESENTATIVE'S TOWN HALL MEETINGS DURING THE "SUMMER DISTRICT WORK PERIOD" [Aug. 1-Sept. 5] and encourage him/her to bring up and pass S. 397 as soon as possible.)

I can't drive right now!!!!!!(that was state law BTW, not BATF) - and I avoid Chimart, I mean Walmart like the plague anyway. :)

I believe the House still needs to pass it(they passed one LAST year - straight up without the BS too). I'm not too worried about them - and I actually have representation there unlike the Senate.
