Clinton admin. gun plans
Judicial Watch has uncovered some interesting records in the Clinton Presidential Library. “These new documents clearly show that the Clinton administration put into motion an organized plan to attack the gun industry,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Tough questions about these extortive methods ought to be asked of both Clintons.”
There is a pdf file of the more interesting documents linked to the page. Ideas that were floated included nationwide handgun permits, banning importation of large capacity magazines, and background checks for private sales. There are also detailed memos on suits against gun manufacturers. One letter from the NY Atty General complains that the HUD/Smith & Wesson deal was negotiated without letting him know, and complains that was not teamwork, but someone getting caught with his hand in the cookie jar. It also complains that their efforts to get magazine disconnect safeties on guns is undermined by FBI's insistence that its guns not have these. "I am disappointed and angry at the way you proceeded."
