Tiahrt has shown that lobby money is more important than fighting crime

Once again our Rep. Todd Tiahrt has shown that lobby money is more important than fighting crime.

Tiahrt's Real constituents

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives recently released data showing the states to which guns used in 2006 crimes had been originally traced, though not the names of dealers. For example, the 1,754 firearms recovered in connection with Kansas crimes last year mostly came from Kansas (758), Missouri (126), Oklahoma (43) and Texas (33). In response to the data release, the New York Daily News editorialized that “the ATF’s action was all the more surprising in that it appeared to violate an odious federal law, known as the Tiahrt amendment, that bars publication of gun data as a way to protect the industry from lawsuits.”

Tiahrt’s loyal to his business friends and will easily sacrifice the safety of his constituents and police protection, to protect gun dealers.

When they had entered the Claiborne gate, they leaned toward each other like young saplings weakened at the root and locking branches to keep what shallow foothold on earth remained.. The scene then changed to the crowded hall of a hotel.. As soon as I sufficiently recovered my senses to comprehend the terrific predicament in which I stood, or rather hung, I exerted all the power of my lungs to make that predicament known to the aeronaut overhead. The request is a proper one, and I have no doubt will be acceded to, returned the Judge, quietly.. Were others cognizant of this? Were there any witnesses? Of course not, said the girl..

A faint and misty smile was the widest departure from its propriety, and this unaccustomed disturbance made wrinkles in the flat, skinny cheeks like those in the surface of a lake, after the intrusion of a stone..
