An anonymous donation is keeping the Phoenix gun buyback program going for one final Saturday, May 18.
There is no short answer to the question — one which is asked by almost every gun control advocate in the U.S.
Any chance of cities or counties conducting future gun-buyback programs is about to evaporate.
Bill Richardson’s views on the gun control debate get a frequent and wide airing in the AFN. Unfortunately, his arguments against stronger gun laws are absurd.
I enjoyed Dennis Tierney’s commentary (“Limiting magazine sizes just a step in trying to reduce gun violence,” AFN, March 31), which responds to my earlier commentary. His arguments appear thoughtful and completely reasonable.
On April 17, a bi-partisan piece of legislation, which included “common sense reforms” to help address gun violence, was defeated in the U.S. Senate.
I just read the article “Ahwatukee residents petition encourages ban on assault weapons” in the April 12 AFN.
At a recent fundraiser in San Francisco, President Obama demonstrated his command of the great issues facing our country.
California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. In addition to the over 9,000 federal gun laws, California has also enacted many laws at the state level, including ban on high-capacity magazines, ban on “assault weapons,” waiting period on gun purchases, an approved handgun list — handguns must be certified by the state before they can cross the state line, private party sales require transfer via a licensed dealer, identification of “gun free zones” and many others.
As we survey the panoply of absurd ideas our legislators, both state and national, face from special interest groups these days, we have to wonder what has become of that rare commodity: common sense.
Bill Richardson presents thoughtful perspectives on our national debate regarding gun control (“How is an illusion going to make us safer?,” AFN, March 22).
Phoenix is organizing three gun buyback events that officials say are aimed at taking unwanted weapons out of homes and giving police a chance to see whether guns have been stolen or used in crimes.
Saying it's nobody business, state lawmakers are poised to keep local governments -- and anyone else -- from finding out who owns a gun.
The state House voted Thursday to slam the door on gun buyback programs — even when the owners specifically ask that their weapons be destroyed.
I was disappointed to hear recently that there’s little appetite in Washington for another “assault weapons ban.”
In Mike McClellan’s guest commentary in the AFN on Feb. 15 (“The inmates do indeed run Ariz.’s asylum”), he ridicules three state lawmakers for proposing legislation that would “require Arizona judges and law enforcement to act in an unconstitutional manner” because the federal government has “supremacy” over gun laws.
I want to offer some points augmenting Bill Richardson’s demolition of gun restrictions (“Banning assault weapons will make us safer, AFN, Feb. 20).
While visiting in your lovely city I read an opinion column by Mike McClellan (“The inmates do indeed run Ariz.’s asylum,” AFN, Feb. 15) about a bill that “prohibits public servants and federally licensed firearms dealers from enforcing any U.S. government act, law, statute, rule of regulation.” His point is that state representatives Smith, Townsend and Petersen and others who are sponsoring this bill (SB 112) are proposing a law that violates the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution. This proposal is, therefore, a violation of their oath to support the Constitution.
A unique caucus of gun owners in the Arizona Democratic Party is working to promote common sense legislation, firearms safety, and marksmanship.
On Jan. 24, Sen. Diane Feinstein introduced her new bill, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013. Here’s a link to her Senate page so you can read it for yourself: http://www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/assault-weapons.
So let’s look at Arizona’s reaction to the gun control controversy.
What does “military style” mean? The specific make and model of firearm used by the military? Or the types of actions used in military firearms? Or the gun’s rate of fire? Are we going to define “military style” narrowly or broadly?
In the wake of all of the tragedies in the news recently, there’s a groundswell of support for tighter gun restrictions in order to protect our children.
Time magazine arrived with front page headlines, “The Gunfighters,” … ironic title for a national movement to prevent gun fighting. It did catch my attention.
My complements to the artist who did the cartoon (Opinion page of the Jan. 13 edition of the AFN) of our Founding Fathers on the wording of the Second Amendment — it was right on target. That cartoon speaks volumes about what has happened to the original intent of the amendment over the course of history.
