    GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA PROPOSALS FOR THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

    REPEAL NEW RULES ALLOWING CONCEALED CARRY IN NATIONAL PARKS: These last-minute regulations allowing loaded, concealed firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges should be rescinded. We should reinstate the rules in place since the Reagan Administration that bar the carrying of loaded, concealed firearms in national parks and wildlife refuges.

    REPEAL OR AMEND THE FEDERAL GUN INDUSTRY LEGAL PROTECTION STATUTE TO RESTORE EQUAL JUSTICE FOR GUN VIOLENCE VICTIMS: The PLCAA should be repealed or, in the alternative, amended to at least allow victims of gun violence to recover damages under common law principles where a legal cause of their injuries was the reckless conduct of a gun company.

    Extend Brady Background Checks to All Gun Sales, Including All Gun Show Sales: Background checks should be required for all gun sales.

    Close the ?Terror Gap? To Deny Firearms to Terrorists: One solution was proposed by Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Representative Peter King (R-NY) in the ?Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act.?47 Based on a Bush Administration proposal, this legislation would provide the U. S. Attorney General with discretionary authority to block a gun sale to a known or suspected terrorist where the AG reasonably believes that the person may use a firearm or explosives in connection with terrorism. In 2001, Holder called for background checks to include ?whether the potential buyer is on an FBI or other law enforcement watch list of suspected terrorists.?48 Incoming Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has strongly endorsed terror gap legislation.49

    David note: Hundreds of thousands of people are on that list, cannot find out why they are on the list, and cannot get their names taken off the list.

    Restrict Large-Volume Handgun Sales to Reduce Trafficking: A federal law restricting bulk handgun sales should be enacted.

    Note: Sales of multiple handguns are already reported to BATF.

    Require Gun Owners to Report Lost or Stolen Guns: Federal law should require that gun owners promptly report lost or stolen guns.

    Require All New Guns to Have Microstamping Capability By a Date Certain: Federal law should require that all new handguns have microstamping.

    Require Dealers to Report Information about Guns Sold to Manufacturers To Streamline Tracing of Crime Guns: ATF should require dealers to report details to manufacturers about all guns sold. This action can be taken without additional statutory authority.

    Note: this will have the manufacturers conducting the gun registration for the government...

    RESTRICT MILITARY-STYLE WEAPONS: Congress should enact strong legislation that closes the loopholes in the previous assault weapons statute and restricts civilian ownership of other weapons that were originally designed for military use, such as .50 caliber sniper rifles that have the range and power to bring down aircraft. High-capacity ammunition magazines and armor-piercing bullets should be similarly restricted.

    REQUIRE CONSUMER SAFETY STANDARDS AND CHILDPROOF SAFETY FEATURES FOR FIREARMS: We agree with the Obama transition agenda that all guns should be childproof. Congress should enact legislation making firearms subject to the same consumer product safety regulation that covers virtually all other consumer products. Childproof safety features should be required, when feasible.

    Note: this will turn gun design regulation over to bureaucrats, bypassing the need for Congress to implement more gun control laws. This one is particularly scary: if the commission decides that a gun or type of ammunition is dangerous it will have the authority to ban it. There is no type of gun that is not potentially dangerous in the wrong hands.

    REQUIRE MINIMUM SAFETY STANDARDS FOR HANDGUN OWNERS AND IMPROVE RECORDKEEPING OF HANDGUN TRANSFERS: To reduce gun violence, Congress should enact a law that treats handguns like cars, with handgun owners required to be trained in safe storage and handling of guns; and with sales recorded to help stop interstate gun trafficking. Like current state licensing and registration systems, a federal law would ensure that handgun owners meet minimum safety standards. It also would help law enforcement prevent criminals from obtaining guns and solve gun crimes.
    Congress should enact legislation to require that handgun owners be trained in safe storage and handling of firearms, and require recordkeeping applicable to all handgun transfers to aid law enforcement in solving gun crimes.

    IMPROVE NATIONAL VIOLENT DEATH REPORTING SYSTEM DATA, AND RESTORE FIREARMS RESEARCH FUNDING FOR THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION: Riders to CDC appropriations legislation now require CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control to add an explicit prohibition on the use of CDC funds ?to advocate or promote gun control.?78 This inhibits important research, as it creates a chilling effect on the use of CDC funds to evaluate the effectiveness of policy interventions related to guns as an individual and community risk factor for violent injury. It is also unnecessary, as federal law prohibits the use of Health and Human Services funds for lobbying.
    The NVDRS should be fully funded. In addition, restrictions on funding for CDC?s research into the causes of gun violence and the effectiveness of various laws and policies should be eliminated.

    Note: the CDC got into the political arena doing junk research and advocating for more restrictive gun control. They were defunded by congress, and rightly so.

    David,

    Thanks for keeping this stuff out there.

    I find myself almost wishing the economy stays in trouble so BO and the Dems (sounds like a garage band:h) will stay distracted. . . but I'm not a Democrat so it's just "almost".

    It's going to be a tense two years until the mid-elections.
