    San Francisco Examiner Editorial: States reassert sovereignty with legislation-9

    An amendment to end the complete gun prohibition on Amtrak trains passed overwhelmingly Wednesday, Sept. 16, in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 68-30. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) offered the amendment to allow law-abiding gun owners to safely and legally transport firearms when they travel on Amtrak.

    Anti-Gun Sunstein confirmed-13


    Gun Owners of America was among the first to issue a five-alarm alert about the confirmation of Cass Sunstein as head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs by the Senate in a 57-40 vote on Sept. 11. There was plenty of alarm when Sustein, a bizarre Obama crony who not only supports gun control and opposes hunting, but actually believes animals should have the right to sue hunters, was nominated for this regulatory post.

    Now there's a lot of head-scratching.
