WASHINGTON , D.C. – Sens. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), Jack Reed (D-RI) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) today joined Paul Helmke, President of the and victims and family members of the tragedy, to introduce legislation to close the nation's "gun show loophole."
"There is no rational reason to oppose closing the loophole. The reason it's still not closed is simple: the continuing power of the special interest gun lobby in Washington"said.
Why the focus on Gun Shows? Because these are transactions by private citizens. So even if you are thinking "I don't go to gun shows" you are a target if you are a gun owner.
How will you protect your right to leave your guns to someone in your will? How will you protect your right to give a .22 to your son for his 16th birthday? Are you prepared to lose the right to give a revolver to your daughter to protect her home? If your wife takes up your side-by-side to protect against an intruder, threatening her in your own home, will she be the criminal because the gun did not belong to her and it was illegally transferred? (Can you picture this on TV: "Mrs. Harris - did the gun belong to you?" "Well actually, it's my husband's." "So you admit that you had a gun that was never legally transferred to you, is that correct?")
Washington. So without the gun lobby in Washington, D.C. we would lose our !mentions the 'gun lobby' in
