Glean Beall Jr. says Congress has gone "a little way in removing at least one unnecessary burden imposed by previous legislative action" concerning the Gun Control Act 011968. Rep. Beall said Wednesday that "oae of the most controversial pieces of legislation to come be- fore the Congress in a longtime" was the Gun Control Act passed last year. "As a result of its Beall said, "regulations were promulgated by the Treasury De- partment for administrativepro- cedures. Among these regula- tions was the requirement that shopkeepers maintain a record of persons to whom they sold shot- gun and rifle ammunition and component parts thereof." tricia Nixon, Honorary Chairman of National Capital USD, recently drew the name of the first win- ner, Mrs. Harry Wallace of Sum- ner, Md., who will talk to her son, Bob, stationed in Vietnam.

"It was also felt that this type of record keeping did not contribute in any way to an in- crease in public safety.

"This amendment does not ap- ply, of course, to any of the re- strictions with respect to the sale of ammunition for hand guns or sales to felons, drug addicts, or mental incompetents. He said, 'The ammunition af- fected is of particular interest to hunters, trap shooters, anc sportsmen. It has no significant history of criminal use and has mainly been used by the ordinary citizen interested in outdoor rec- reation. The ammunition is sole all over the United States, not only in big sporting goods stores but also at service stations and crossroad stores. "The purpose of the amend- ment, zs adopted last week by the House, is to relieve the dealers from a burdensome record keep- ing requirement. It will save law abiding hunters and other sports- men from embarrassment and annoyance of identifying them- selves and from having to furnish other information with respect to the purchase of items of or- dinary commerce. 'It should also be pointed out that the requirements were so burdensome and there was so much paperwork involvedthat the Treasury Department has re- peatedly asserted to testimony, before Congressional Commit- tees, that the records are of no significant value in crime de- terence or to apprehending criminal suspects. Congress therefore went a little way to removing at least one unnecessary burden imposed by previous legislative action." Thickness of human skin varies from one-sixteenth to one-eighth of an inch.
