Default It's been a long, long battle...

This is an excerpt from "GUNS" magazine dated 12/1960

"Congressman Henry R. Reuss
5th Dist., Wisconsin
Committees: Banks & Economic
MY COMMENTS ON the Second Amendment have not changed since 1957 when I made public such views in connection with the then-proposed registration regulations set forth by the Alcohol & Tobacco Tax Division of the Internal Revenue Service. I said, "These rules appear to come close to an unconstitutional restriction on the right of every citizen to bear arms. (The regulations) will treat millions of legal sportsmen as if they were all suspected criminals... This sort of red tape can go a long way towards forcing small dealers out of business."

Keep fighting guys!
