mandated lines separating church and state and needs to be The Dallas Times Herald Tom Loeffler Congress needs to consider new gun law Among the freedoms which our forefathers included in the Constitu tion was the right of all citizens to keep and bear arms Having won a revolution which was started by everyday citizens who had armed themselves against a tyrant the founding fathers wisely enumerated this right in the Second This basic right was by passage of the Gun Con trol Act in Prompted by a large nationwide crime Congress in the Gun Control Act restricted ownership and use of In stead of cutting the Gun Control Act actually handicap ped lawabiding citizens against the onslaught of violent In the four years following passage of the handgun homicides actually went up 50 and handgun rob beries The rights of honest citizens seek ing to use firearms for sport or pro tection have been limited by the Gun Control For under the act it is not a federal offense to sell a firearm to a convicted but or dinary citizens with prior criminal record are subject to federal penalties for inadvertent violations of gun The Gun Control Act discriminates s giossly against honest citizens that we need a law to protect their I am cosponsoring legislation in Con gress to throw the weight of the law against lawbreakers not against lawabiding HR the Firearm Owners Protection would refocus the federal firearms enforcement effort away from the bureaucratic regulation of peaceful citizens toward the speedy prosecution and sure punish ment of The bill prohibits the sale of a firearm to a convicted felon by an unlicensed It also pro vides a consistent definition of those who would be pro hibited from possessing and transporting unlike current For lawabiding the bill loosens the regulatory noose around their It prohibits gun requires criminal intent be proved before a person can be con veicted of firearms allows importation of sprt firearms and transportation of unloaded firearms through guncontrol The bill I am supporting does not repeal sensible laws which ensure that guns are used It redirects gun controls where they belong on the not on the lawabiding majority of This Congress marks the third time in five years this legislation has cleared the Senate only to To ensure that this vital legislation receives a fair I have signed a petition to discharge the Judiciary Committee from considering the bill and send to directly to the House For too legitimate owners of firearms have been under the thumb of gun control laVf that punishes the innocent nd protects the That is not the way justice should it is not what our foun ding fathers and Congress must act to correct AL TCMOIWV THt HOM5 A 016 THANKS6lVINSPINtteR I WHATCANYOUMLUSABOUTn FOR PETES IM IN A 0ANP YOU PLAY AT THE THEYPO MUSIC WOOW6UTH ISMY npc VANHAlfN THAT SORT A Mike Royko 3 little words carry a lot of weight I just glanced through a new book about the late Murray The Camel a prominent Chicago gangster with whom I once had a brief conversation as he was coming out of a I said can I ask you about And he said Bug When I got to the part of the book that described Humphrey as a finan cial and political wizard and told how his genius led to the successful ex pansion of the Crime I passed the book on to the literary scrutiny it deserved the Thats the trouble with most of the writing and reporting thats been done about people like Al Capone and the other names in organized The authors arent content with ap preciating these men for the rare quality that brought them great financial success their willingness to maul and they portrayed them as men who are really not much dif ferent than other successful And they often give them titles like chairman of the operating director and so And they credit them with ex ecutive and economic skills beyond those of any Harvard But all you have to do is follow the dying confessions of Roy the former president of the Teamsters Union who is squealing in order to stay out of and youll see that its never been executive skills that made the mugs they were involved in rigged union huge loans from the Teamsters pension and other deals that sounded But theres nothing to Any sharp CPA or lawyer can structure a deal if all the parties are Its persuading everybody to be willing thats the secret of the mugs And that secret can be described in three little words Ill kill When you think about the will ingness to say those words and the sense of purpose to follow them up can give a person one heck of a business If youre a you have to depend on your knowledge of powers of persuasion and sense of timing to close a And you still might not make How much simpler to say We got a deal I dont think Ill kill we got a If youre a you pro bably have To beat your you might have to improve the think of a new and better marketing research amd in And even they might outdo But the Cerones and Accardos and the others dont bother with all Somebody wants to compete and they say Find another line of But I like this Ill kill Come to think of Im due for a midlife career If youre in you might have to deal with people who dont pay their bills or fulfill an agree So you have to nag deal with collection or take them to Not these They Just say Your note is My check is in the Ill kill Lets go to my Most of the complex problems that corporate executives must confront are resolved so much When theres a corporate takeover we see proxy buybacks and all the other But when Jimmy Hoffa decided that he was going to to come out of retirement and try a takeover of the they just said the three little Then they did Disgruntled or unreliable employees are a chronic problem for To the corporations hire per sonnel experts and and pipe in the sound of tropical When Allen Dorfman became an unreliable his associates didnt bother with personnel direc tors or They sent in the guys who wear ski masks in And how else could they be ex pected to do business Thats the way they learned Most of them came out of the West Side of and as mere lads developed an appreciation for the law of supply and If you had a supply of something they they put a gun to your ribs and demanded Businessmen think in terms of hedges against hedges against hedges against in When these guys speak of they mean some foliage next to a driveway from which a shotgun can be So dont be taken in when you read about the business acumen and finanacial wizardry of that Just remember what the Chicago police captain said when he was ap proached by an economics student who intended to do a scholarly study on how the mob acheived its wealth and He asked the police captain for sug gestions on where to start his The cop told him A gun Your representatives Tom
