NRA Chalks Up Victories
National Rifle Association,
membership 4.1 million, has a lot to celebrate at its 132nd annual
meeting, scheduled for April 24-27 in Orlando, Fla.
Check out this list of victories compiled by UPI:
Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a Clinton Democrat, recently
signed a "concealed carry" law.
Gov. Bill Owens, a Republican, made "shall issue
right-to-carry" the law in the Centennial State.
seven states don't permit residents to carry firearms for
self-protection or the protection of loved ones.
U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill to stop cities'
nuisance lawsuits against gun manufacturers and dealers.
"On a sadder note, Academy-Award-winning actor Charlton
Heston will be stepping down after an unprecedented six years
as president of the organization," UPI notes. "His replacement
is expected to be first vice president Kayne Robinson, the
former police chief of Des Moines, Iowa, a longtime NRA board member."
Things for supporters of the Second Amendment to watch for:

of mass destruction," a major story ignored by most of

general sued Wal-Mart
for selling toy guns. Perhaps the manufacturers and sellers of those
