A2 Tuesday, May 16, 1995 The Salina Journal Clinton pledges to keep gun ban as mothers lobby in favor of it the Salina Journal By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — President Clinton stood before hundreds of police mourning slain comrades Monday and denounced the National Rifle Association for maligning federal agents as "jackbooted government thugs." "That is not the American way," he said. Taking on one of Washington's most powerful lobbies, the president also pledged to defend his assault-weapons ban against NRA opposition. "When the NRA holds its annual meeting later this week, I want them to know they can pressure Congress all they want, but as long as I am president, that ban will be the law of our land," Clinton said in an address at the 14th annual National Peace Officers' Memorial. Also Monday, mothers of children killed by guns urged lawmakers to oppose repeal of the ban on assault-style weapons and accused Republican leaders of bowing to the gun lobby. At a news conference organized by Handgun Control, the group displayed several posters filled with snapshots of the dead children and letters, poems and newspaper clippings. Firearms cause the death of more people age 15-24 than all natural causes combined. House Republicans had been pushing a repeal of the ban and had planned a vote this month on the legislation. But after the April 19 bombing in Oklahoma City, they decided to delay the attempt. Lois Hess of Baltimore, whose 24-year-old son, Stuart, was shot and killed, challenged the Repub- FBI spies on AIDS activists By The Associated Press NEW YORK — The FBI is spying on AIDS activists and gay rights groups, apparently out of fear they might resort to violence or throw inlected blood during i demonstrations, according to FBI documents and a civil rights group. The documents indicate that informants gave the FBI information and that the bureau has had its own people at some meetings. The records involve surveillance of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, or ACT UP, in 1990 and 1991. The FBI refused to release 177 pages of the 199-page file, claiming "ongoing law enforcement activity." "I think the Oklahoma bombing proves that they're looking in the wrong place for trouble," said Ann Northrop, an AIDS educator. ADVENTURE & TRIVIA GAMES 825-6000 category 4263 Sponsored By: lican leaders, House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, to stand up to the National Rifle Association. "Are your allegiances to the NRA stronger than your responsibility to protect the children of this country?" Hess asked. Byrl Phillips Taylor of Richmond, Va., said she made some 50 telephone calls last week to Dole's and Gingrich's offices but could not get meetings with them. "I guess I just don't have the power of the NRA," Taylor said. She said her son, Scott, then 17, was shot by an AK-47 semiautomatic weapon. Dole spokesman Clarkson Hine, asked about Taylor's statements, provided a letter Dole wrote her last Thursday. Dole urged Taylor to meet with a member of his staff.
