European Stars and Stripes (Newspaper) - June 20, 1968, Darmstadt, HessePage 18 the stars and stripes a browsing with Benny by Ralph Bennington some of my newspaper colleagues claim i m taking my neck out of the Brace and sticking it in the noose As i swing upon the sports column band Wagon initially with a powder Keg Niece others see it As facing the firing squad Early or swiping Maggie s red drawers from the firing Range and waving them at a enraged population instead of the Farmer s enough the terms All fit As i m coming out swinging in my initial column with a pro gun fusillade following Over two months of recuperating from a spinal fusion operation in the . Air Force Hospital in Wiesbaden. But before i get Down to the Short fuse level and Start tossing the hot potato anti gun Issue around it s time to go on record with a Hearty thanks for Martins and highly competent staff members up and Down the line at Wiesbaden for great Relief from a pinched nerve prob Lem in the neck and shoulders extending Over six years. Formalities out of the Way you readers probably now expect the challenging phrase. Draw Podner not from me. Al though i m an avid Hunter gun collector shooter. Of course we can t count the verbal or written pot shots that Are sure to follow now and in the future weeks and months particularly if there Are anywhere near As Many die hard anti gun fanatics lurking among the Serviceman civilians and dependents out inthe circulation area As i have spouting off and spreading Hope Ful propaganda right Here at Home someone hits the panic Button or touches the hair trigger prematurely i la outline my stand on the current craze and then elaborate As much As time and space will permit. Frenzied amendments Overall i am not against All the hysterical legislation that our lawmakers Are falling Over themselves to enact at present in Washington. But certain aspects of the frenzied amendment Sand proposed Laws make the old hackles stand up stiff As a West Point Cadet. Broken Down the targets Are no. 1 i m whole hog against any half cocked politician who has his sights set on faking away my constitutionally guaranteed rights to keep or Bear arms without infringement now Orat any time in the future. Pick your own figure if you wish to use years decades or centuries instead of lumping All the Tim under future. No. 2 1 strongly resent the attempts of some writers Law makers and misinformed individuals to class anyone pro gun in any Way shape or form As a gun nut killer criminal an undesirable citizen. No. 3 1 can not take a Strong stand against the registration of firearms by All citizens except for the inconvenience and possible consequences in the years to come. That s a very Road Issue and one that will have to wait for elaboration until a few More planks Are nailed on the platform. No. 4 1 favor 100 per cell the Banning of the mail order Over the counter Sale of pistols to known criminals juveniles drunks drug addicts past or present mental patients and those deemed incompetent risks by local Law enforcement agencies. Again it s a very Broad subject. No. 5 i m anti communist anti crime anti switchblade anti brass Knuckles anti Brick anti Butcher knife anti Beer bottle anti chair L.G anti silk stocking anti razor anti Molotov cocktail anti Ltd anti arsenic anti Blackjack anti tire tool and anti goof balls. If any other dangerous weapons outside of automobiles escaped me just add them to your own list or refresh Rny , there you Are briefly in a starter nutshell so fire away. I Promise to stay unarmed with both a real firearm and the5th amendment. However i must insist on my rights under both the first and second amendments mainly my right to free Dom of speech and to express my views Here and last but certainly not least my right to own and Bear arms. To be taught at Home now Don t jump the gun and expect to see me come stroll ing into the pm with a six gun strapped on my hip or a Tell tale shoulder Holster bulge under the suit coat hiding a Bulky Auto Matic. I be got them to be sure but they never come out of the locked room i have the Only key too unless i m going Down to the Range for some target shooting i take them out to Admire or clean or possibly and let s Hope it never happens some nitwit picks my family As a target to molest or Rob. Gun respect and safety is and will continue to be taught in my own Home just As much As manners obedience love and peace. The same applies out in the Field and in critics at least those among the colleagues at stars and stripes even get carried away to the Point where they wish Todo away with All guns. I la go along if they will agree to Perman ent residence in a mental institution Strong words yes even taking into consideration the Strong motivation following on the heels of the assassination of senator Robert Kennedy and civil rights Leader or. Martin Luther King. Let us also not forget the tragic gunning Down of our late presi Dent John f. Kennedy. However let me make one Point very very Clear at this time the gun did not kill the Man behind it did. I can pretty Well guess the main Point in the Salvo of replies will be some thing like. Yes but he could not have committed this dastardly act without a gun. Right on the heels comes Theattle cry ban mail order sales for the Oswalds or Over the counter purchases for the sir Hans. Fine except that no amount of sales continued on Paje Northrup stars As Tii Post 2-1 win Over it Detroit up Jim North rup drove in one run with a double and scored the other Onan error tuesday night As the Detroit tigers Defeated the Boston red sox 2-1 and gave Earl Wilson his seventh Victory in eight tries against his former , who suffered his Only loss to the red sox on opening Day of this season was relieved by Pat Dobson when he Walke Dcarl Yastrzemski and threw a wild pitch with none out in the ninth.
