    The Second Amendment Foundation today hailed the decision by Judge Fred S. Silverman to dismiss a lawsuit by the City of Wilmington, DE against the firearms industry.

    In his ruling, Judge Silverman wrote that, “Handgun violence is a scourge. But as much as the court would support efforts to reduce the problem, the court will not twist a jury trial involving municipal costs into a wildly expensive referendum on handgun control.… Read the rest

  • CAUGHT IN CONTRADICTION: WILL THE REAL SENATOR SCHUMER PLEASE SPEAK STRAIGHT

    Is perennial anti-gun New York Senator Charles Schumer suffering from schizophrenia? That’s the question two of the nation’s leading gun rights advocates are asking themselves after Schumer contradicted his own public position on the right to keep and bear arms.

    Said Schumer in a May 8 press release: “The broad principle that there is an individual right to bear arms is shared by many Americans, including myself.”

    However, this is the same Chuck Schumer who stated, during an April 5, 1995 hearing of the House Subcommittee on Crime, “The Second Amendment…does not guarantee the mythical individual right to bear arms we will hear argued for today.”

    “Chuck Schumer is once again talking out of both sides of his mouth,” said Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation.… Read the rest

  • SAF CALLS FOR MORATORIUM ON ALL NEW GUN LAWS UNTIL CRIMINAL RECORDS CAN BE UPDATED

    The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) called for an immediate moratorium on the passage of all new gun laws until states and the federal government can update their computerized records on felony convictions and mental disabilities.

    Responding to a report from the Americans for Gun Safety Foundation (AGS) that claimed nearly 10,000 felons and other ineligible persons have purchased guns since mid-1999 due to problems in records keeping, SAF Founder Alan Gottlieb stated, “If that’s true, then a moratorium on the passage of any new gun laws should be immediately put in place, until these records and computer systems can be upgraded.”

    The Associated Press reported the AGS claim, in which AGS Director Jim Kessler said the criminal records for almost every state are “in terrible shape.” The anti-gun group said 25 states have automated less than 60 percent of their felony conviction records and 33 states do not automate any records on people who have been involuntarily institutionalized.… Read the rest
