Major Firearms laws being introduced in MS:

The first one is good, and lets anyone carry without a permit.
The second is horrible, and is going to mandate serial numbers on the cases of bullets, and that by 2010, all uncoded ammunition would be a felony to possess.


http://index.ls.state.ms.us/isysnati...la79b/5/hilite

AN ACT TO PROVIDE THAT IT SHALL NOT BE UNLAWFUL FOR A PERSON 1 TO CARRY ANY PISTOL OR REVOLVER, WHETHER OR NOT CONCEALED IN WHOLE 2 OR IN PART, UPON ANY PUBLIC OR PRIVATE PROPERTY UNLESS 3 SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED BY SOME OTHER VALID AND APPLICABLE 4 FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAW, RULE, REGULATION OR ORDINANCE; TO 5 AMEND SECTION 97-37-1, MISSISSIPPI CODE OF 1972, IN CONFORMITY; 6 AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES.

http://index.ls.state.ms.us/isysnati...la79e/1/hilite

AN ACT RELATING TO FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION REQUIRING THE 1 DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY TO ESTABLISH A STATEWIDE DATABASE TO 2 TRACK CODED AMMUNITION MANUFACTURED AND SOLD FOR HANDGUNS AND 3 ASSAULT RIFLES; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES.

I like the first one.

Talk Radio was all over the second one yesterday. Some legislator came on and explained that it stands not a snowball's chance in h*ll of comeing up on the floor and even less chance of passing both houses---and that Hailey Barbor would veto it in a heartbeat.

Nevertheless, it bothers me that we have 4 legislators who would put their names on such a garbage bill.

And, of course, the fear is that next year there may be 10 and next year 20 who endorse it. Especially if we have a senseless school shooting or something.

I really believe that gun grabbers like school shootings and assassinations of high level politicians because in their feeble minds it proves them right.

Sort of like a husband who has a wreck after 30 years of driving drunk, and his wife says, "I knew it was going to happen!"

but he is the Democrat Senator-elect from Tupelo elected to fill the seat of retiring Senator Travis Little. Here is Mr. Powell:

As I understand it, Haley would veto either bill.

Some bills that I'm getting together for this years to-do list include:

Clearning up the conflict between state laws concearning road hunting and the right to keep loaded gun(s) in your vehicle.

Concealed carry on campuses.

Students of colleges allowed to keep guns in their vehicle.

Misdomener for high school students.

Reduce permit times.

Cannot restrict beyond law on goverment funded property (no university saying carry is prohibited).

Defined and allowed open carry at 18 years old.

Permit allows carring anything(s) in 97-37-1.

Carry in parks and WMA's.

Concealed (or open) carry in primative weapon's season.

Below are links to the contact info for the Elected folks up in Jackson. It would be good for all of us to contact these politicians and let them know that we are against all gun control legislation and for increased gun freedoms. If the law makers are hit with a larger number of email and phone calls, they will soon learn that Mississippi is not the place to increase gun control.

State House of Representatives Directory
State Senate Directory

Just got an email from the NRA:

"Be On The Lookout In Your State! In 2007, the sponsor of "encoded ammunition" legislation in Maryland urged lawmakers across the country to introduce the same kind of legislation in their states. This legislation would require ammunition manufacturers to engrave a serial number on "the base of the bullet and the inside of the cartridge casing of each round" of ammunition for popular sporting caliber center-fire rifles, all center-fire pistols, all .22 rimfire rifles and pistols, and all 12 gauge shotguns. "

L J, please add churches to your list, as this gun free zone has been noticed by the bad guys in the past few years. Thanks

Actually it was on the list under the road hunting bit. The list we jotted down on a Ruby Tuesday's waiter's food sheet, so it was easy to miss.

Eric Powell didn't lie. There it is, big as you please on the NRA Political Victory Fund candidate ratings web site:

Quote:
District 4
(D) Eric Powell A
(R) James E. Moffitt C


Source (requires your NRA number to access): http://www.nrapvf.org/ELECTIONS/Stat...=2007&State=MS

Looks like somebody needs to let the NRA know how Mr. Powell votes now that he got elected.

That first bill looks great, but that second one scares the hell out of me. I don't think it (2nd bill) will be passed, but I hope it isn't a glimpse to the future of what to expect on a national level if bill-ary or ohama get elected.

The request to have the bill wrote up went out today for the House of Reps.

The two items we got across were allowing students to carry on campus with a permit, as well as keep guns in their dorms/appartments on campus (with a permit I believe).

The second item allows for people (or students, unsure of the language at this point) to keep firearms in their vehicles on campus.

I'll let ya'll know what gets in the Senate.
