Anyone following this: The bill passed out of committee and is being placed on the calendar for the full Senate debate. This bill gives the Attorney General sole authority to "require any person who...is in possession of significant military equipment formerly owned by the Department of Defense to (A) demilitarize the equipment, (B) to have the equipment demilitarized by a third party; or (C) to return the eaquipment to the Federal Government for demilitarization." The Secretary of Defense has sole authority to designate any former military equipment he chooses to be destroyed. By definition, this bill requires the helicopters in the Aviation Heritage Museum to be destroyed as well as many of the vehicles owned by the Alaska Territorial Calvary. Your M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, 1911A1 pistol and 1903 Springfield are first on the list. Think about it. Your posession of these guns or a US military vehicle will make you subject to felony charges.... take it from there.... Looks like someone is trying to sneak one over on the American people while our attention is focused elsewhere.

I called Senator Gramm's office today and let his staffer know how I felt. I refuse to give back my father's Korean service rifle. God Bless Texas

Actually my M1 Carbines, M1 Garands and Trapdoor Springfield Rifle were formerly property of the US WAR Dept. Not the Department of Defense.
