A Busy Year Ahead

From The Herald News' article. This is an excerpt which was taken from a letter written by Richard Pearson, president of the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):

"The following are the Brady Campaign's agenda for the 2007-2008 legislative session.

1. Re-enact assault weapons ban

2. Federalize private gunshow sales

3. Criminalize gunshow activity

4. Strengthen the Brady law

5. Curb illegal gun sales

6. Pass life-saving gun laws

7. Repeal the Lawful Commerce in Firearms Act (the frivolous lawsuit ban)

8. Limit the number of firearms a person can buy.

No definitions of what these goals mean. They also plan to continue their successful operations that include:

9. Block national concealed carry

10. Maintain the Washington D.C. gun ban

11. Continue gun-lock sales requirements

12. Fight anything the 'sleezy' (their word) NRA proposes

13. Limit the available 'military-style firearms'

14. Restrict "fast firing, bigger clips" guns."

Hopefully Kopel is right.
