Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE IETIIBRIDGE Novimbcr 24, 1971--------------- tiOt) in Lo.s coiinly on control measures in United States -1- io nlan drained A Hill .supported liy tnc Kim, Eouumfi he said. with Hi" stm-t firearm conlrol we have in lirilain there isn't the sami- opportunity In ijral) a pistol and kin some-j Thoro aren't thai many (inns' arnund There are m today five million liaral pins of I all shapes and stamps.

The marketing Hwsc wea- pons has long been OIK- of Cali- fornia's sicker jokes. Big ad- vertisemeni.. fii-earms sales" appi-ar Ill's zen is shown, sin-rounded by lustrations of rifles, revolvers 1 and automatics, lie is loading a "Mauser model 91 Argentine! 7.IJ5 calibre (i-shot carbine." sen- j salioual value at only SM.W.' You may a revolv- er for as little as extra long ban-el on this The Si, America's favorite murder weapon, is also known as "the Saturday night ape-1 cial" it's most commonly put j to use on that night, during; family fights, bar room brawls and s'treet arguments. Many of them are almost as dangerous to the user as his victim: made of cheap metal, with little as-: sembly-line inspection and less testing, they sometimes ex- plode, [ire two bullets at onto, or suddenly go off after several attempts. The powerful Run lobby and the manufacturers imply thai it Is a pretty harmless little thins, miliy. But p'lMiv ballistic.-, c-ipc'rls siiy snuill SIM; ami hi !li velocity cause it to .Hy deflected and irasliible. A l-nWr hilllcl i may hit a shix.ihlrr ami stay (here: hut I hi- rips c.ff i in a different after un-; pact, passin" Ihi-iniKh lhc> body; and doing 'iilal A second dancer allied to the shoddy manufacture of the Sat- urday Night Special is that the: rifling of the lianvl wears mil i after a few shots caii.iinfi a hulld to tumlilc a- it travels. This creates what doctors call a "keyhole wound" which is dif-: ficult to care for. Vet even if the "Special" was banned, there would still be .some superior h and; guns at large in California to-1 day. Fear, mistrust and hatred i have caused Ihe traffic in fire-i arms in this slate I o double over the past decade. More peo- ple are buyinf! guns here than ever before, many of tliem for the first lime. On the one luii'.d are a broad ranpe of groups, all arming in "self defence" against what thsy see as the threat from the militant Left and the radical lumbers. The radicals themselves are also arming in "self-defence" to cre- ate a ,'ort of domestic balance of power but no one knows how many weapons they pos- se.-s. Police have expressed alarm at the growth of "private arm- ies" of armed guards hired by firms to protect their property. They estimate that some 400 businesses in California are cur- rently employing at least private investigators and guards. Most carry weapons, many wear their own uni- forms. Significant of the state's mood I is a fuml-raiiinR plan dreamed up by the American Independ- ent i'arly, the California arm of Gcorfi'e Wallace's drive for the Presidency. The All' offer- ed an unreKislcrcd SIM gun as prize in a lottery lo money for the party, adding that "il's likely wo may even discourage a riot or two." At the same time, opinion polls in the state consistently stow that a majority of lire public favors stricter conlrol of firearms. Yd state lawmakers are unwilling to act. They in- sist thai gun conlrol reform must come from Ihe federal level. The city of San Francisco has tried lo adopt a tough stance towards gun regislra- tion. Yet when they passed a new firearms control ordin- wx-e Ihe other day, the city fathers found themselves pre- empted by the state legislature. A Hill .supported by the gun lobby was passed denying cities Ihe right lo enact strong con- trols of their own. San Francisco's liberal May- or Aliolo commented: "It's in- 'onceh'able I hat Ihe stall! legis- lature should play into the hands of Ihe Black Panthers and other urban groups that want to shoot (heir way to rev- olution." It seems thai Ihe stale may have done just thai, for it now accuses Angela Davis, Ihe Communist philosophy profes- sor and avowed revoluntionary, of purchasing the four guns used in the notorious -San Rafael courthouse shooting which a judge and three other men were killed. State attor- neys allege thai Miss Davis bought t h e guns in various stores and pawnshops around San Francisco. She needed only lo sign her name lo a form. California also has a problem with pornography and nude en- tertainment on stage. But the state's legislators make no dif- ficulty about handing thai prob- lem of enforcement over lo cities and counties. It is of course, nol only tho Panthers who slock firearms. White vigilante groups are leg- ion in this part of the world, and their arsenals of legally- obtained weapons increase threat lo public safety With SO million hand guns lit large in the nalion and deaths from shooting in United Stales every year, one must believe that California's Mr. Busch and Mayor Alioto 1 are right when they urge more i control at the federal level. Yet only Ihe other day, America's lop law enforcement officer, At- torney-Oneral Mitchell, passed the buck back In thorn by say- i ing that it was a local matter.
