    'Fed Up' With Treatment of Gun Owners By Curt Lovelace November, 2000 Larry Savage is a reluctant activist. Two years ago, however, Savage had an experience that changed his life. He read the text of the Massachusetts Gun Control Act of 1998 and was shocked at "the audacity of the legislature." As soon as Savage read that law, which he says he "just happened across while surfing the 'net,'" he went out and became a licensed gun owner and began to work for the repeal of the law. The former gun control supporter had come full circle. In September 2000,...

    A Willits teen’s campaign to buy and melt down 50,000 unassembled guns failed Thursday. Brandon Maxfield, 17, had hoped to raise $200,000 through an Internet campaign to buy Bryco Arms’ bankrupt Southern California plant. The facility made the “Saturday night special” that misfired 10 years ago, leaving Maxfield a quadriplegic. Maxfield said he wanted to buy the guns to prevent another child from being crippled or killed. But he was unable to raise the money necessary to outbid the plant’s manager, Paul Jimenez by Thursday, when a Florida bankruptcy court took up the matter. Jimenez bid $150,000. Maxfield’s Florida attorney,...

    A U.N. group is working toward establishment of an international system to register and regulate civilian possession of firearms, according to a former congressman. The ultimate aim of many members of the conference on small arms is to outlaw personal ownership of guns altogether, said Georgia Republican Bob Barr in an interview yesterday on the newly syndicated WorldNetDaily Report with Joseph Farah. Bob Barr Barr was an official representative of the U.S. State Department's delegation at the conference's week-long session last week. It is known officially as the first Biennial Meeting of States on the Implementation of the Program of...

    Latest Video, Congressional Democrats on Gun Report (05/20/2003)20 min It's a video so you'll have to watch it for your selves but try not to put your fist to far into your monitor. Launtenburg goes into why his new GUN LAW (S969)will keep guns from terrorists, but how it will not affect legal gun buyers, yeah right. Also they go into why normal citizens should not be able to buy .50 cal weapons.
  • The Thruth About 'Assault Weapons' Flash Movie

    Since this has been a hot topic here and among gun owners lately, I decided to make an easy to follow explanation of the 'Assault Weapons' ban of 1994. If you need to explain the futility of this clinton gun grab, this movie illustrates how useless it has been by citing a report actually completed during the clinton administration on how the bill has done nothing to fight crime and has done much to harm gunowners. Since you can't post flash movies here, you'll need to follow this link.

    The FReep this evening occurred after a day of heavy rain in the Baltimore/DC area. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, DemocRAT candidate for Maryland Governor, held a fundraiser at the Bethesda Mariott. The honor roll for tonight's FReep consisted of Big Red, Husband of Big Red, Jimmy Valentine's Brother, and Sauropod. I arrived first right at 5 o'clock at the Mariott. It took me about 5 minutes to find a parking space, since the parking lot was filled up with cars sporting Townsend/Larson bumper stickers. Some of them had other stickers, such as Gore/LIEberman, Teach Peace, Van Hollen for Congress (vs. Connie...
