ISRA Thursday Bulletin - May 16, 2019

by Richard Pearson

On May 16, 1945, President Harry S. Truman made the decision to go forward with an attack on Japan using an atomic bomb.  Two months later a plutonium based atomic bomb was successfully tested near Alamogordo, New Mexico.  This was known as the Trinity Test.  The United States developed two types of bombs, a uranium based bomb and a plutonium based bomb.  Scientists were sure the uranium based bomb would work but they were unsure about the plutonium based bomb because little was known about plutonium, a trace element found in uranium.  The plutonium core was about the size of a grapefruit but much more powerful.  The project name for the development of the atomic bomb was the Manhattan Project.  The cost was two billion dollars, about what the government pays for a toilet seat today.

ISRA Thursday Bulletin - May 9, 2019

There are 14 days left in the Senate and 16 days left in the House of Representatives in this Legislative Session but there is still plenty of time for mayhem.  This Legislative Session has revealed the true intent of the anti-gun crowd to even the blindest of gun owners.  We have seen the introduction of a bill with universal ammunition taxes, the introduction of a ban that includes every type of semi-auto firearm including .22s, and a FOID card bill that would literally make it impossible for most people to have a FOID card.  In the past there were some gun owners who did not come to the defense of others gun owners because it did not affect them.  It has always been clear to many of us that everything is on the table and the anti-gun crowd wants it all.  Now it should be clear to all gun owners.  This is not an Illinois problem alone.  Cory Booker, Senator from New Jersey who is running for President, has even more outlandish proposals.

The National Rifle Association Annual Meeting (NRAAM) has concluded after a somewhat contentious members meeting.  Of course, the media is salivating at the idea of problems in the NRA.  Is the NRA perfect?  The answer is no, but then neither is any other organization.  The NRA is about a million times better than Congress, for example.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) maintains the JPFO Gun Confiscation Clock. The clock now shows 12 minutes to midnight, a loss of two minutes.  The reason for this is the introduction of H.R. 8 and HB 1112 in the United States House of Representatives.  Last week I referred to the anti-gun pushes in the traditionally pro-Second Amendment States.  This is what happens when gun owners take things for granted.
