President Johnson holds an impromptu conference with newsmen who had lingered behind. (DPI Telephoto) How much of a right to bear arms? Will Congress damp on arms peddlers? down Neal says he can't afford a lawyer INDIO (UPI) —Former actor Tom Neal, who claimed he can't afford a lawyer, must enter a plea May 11 to charges he murdered his wife, Gail, 29, last April 2. Neal Tuesday informed the court he had no funds to hire a lawyer. The court continued the case and authorized appointment of a public defender for Neal. Prior to Neal's appearance Tuesday, it had been thought that the 51-year - old actor- turned - landscape engineer was prospering. The body of Mrs. Nai was discovered in the couple's home in Palm Springs. She had been shot in the head. Neal's movie career slipped after a 1951 incident in which he beat actor Franchot Tone over the affections of actress Barbara Payton. Tone and Miss Payton subsequently were married and divorced. TEMPORARILY SOLD OUT: A suburban Detroit gun shop reports that 25mm French antitank weapons are big sellers. The war-surplus cannon, sold complete with live ammo, has a range of four miles. By TOM NOLAN Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON — (NEA>—A with the outspoken opposition of [and rockets. the massive National Rifle Assn. <NRA) which represents more Connecticut duck hunter pur- than 500,000 shooter - sportsmen, chases a 12-gauge shotgun fromjNRA officials claim the new a Hartford dealer. At the same j bills — slightly more stringent time, a member of the Minute-1 than Dodd's original proposals men — a right-wing organization — buys a 25-millimeter antitank weapon from a suburban Detroit gun shop. Outside of their interest in firearms, these two men have little in common. For example, if you should ask, "What's the Second Amendment to the Constitution?" the duck hunter would probably mutter something about free speech. But chances are the Minuteman would promptly answer: "It says that the right of the Increase license fees, registration fees and occupational taxes under the Federal and National Firearms Acts. These points would have little effect — none, except for in made in August 1963 — "are!creasing fees and taxes — on way out of line." They add,'American hunters or citizens who wish to protect themselves though, that they would accept the original points. Yet their official line has not changed. In fact, it is the same line which helped thwart Dodd's legislation for almost two years. The entire legal backbone of the "Daniel Boone" school of thought is the Second Amendment — but only the last half of it. "The amendment must be considered in its entire context," Dodd says. "And when you look people to bear arms shall not be infringed." Technically, the Minutemanjare contingent solely upon the knows more about the amend-'maintenance of a well-regulated at it that way, its declarations ment than the duck hunter. But, in the opinion of Sen. Thomas Dodd, D-Conn., he's a perfect example of why Alexander Pope wrote, "A little learning is a dangerous thing." For the Minuteman is only half right: the Second Amendment reads, "A well - regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." . Dodd is the author of two bills presently before Congress which would control interstate traffic in mail-order firearms and curtail importation of foreign-made surplus weapons. Though arms control hills were thrown into the legislative hopper shortly after President Kennedy was killed in November 1963 by a foreign rifle purchased through the mails, none has yet been passed. The main reason, Do d d charges, is the "shabby, timeworn slogan that every American has the right to go about fully been armed." The slogan has piously repeated by gun enthusiasts — whom Dodd calls "Twentieth - Century Daniel Boones." The bills have the full back- IBS of President Johnson along militia, nothing more." Citing six major cisions — including preme Court rulings points out: court three de- or their property against criminals. It would, however, curtail the growing industry which sells guns through the mails. "The sale of guns by mail order has made a mockery of federal and state firearms laws," Dodd says. "Even New York's strict Sullivan Law has been circumvented by this traf- Dodd's bills would also drasti- "The Second Amendment does not confer upon the individual the absolute right to keep and bear arms. It was not adopted with individual rights in mind but as a protection for the states in the maintenance of their militia against possible encroachment by federal power." The salient points of Dodd's proposals: Prohibit mail-order sales of firearms to individuals by limiting interstate and foreign fire- cally limit additions to the arsenals of organizations such as the Minutemen. Despite the {act that his proposals will not affect legitimate t gun traffic, Dodd has been vili : — Dodd fj er j as a "threat to the security of the country by attempting to arms shipments to those between importers and businessmen and dealers. Prohibit sales of all firearms to persons under 21, except for sales of sporting rifles and shotguns to persons over 18. Prohibit federal licensees from selling weapons, other than rifles and shotguns, to anyone who is not a resident or businessman in the licensee's state. Curb importation of surplus military . weapons not suitable for sporting purposes. Bring under federal control interstate shipment of such weapons as bazookas, antitank guns, grenades, bombs, missiles disarm the law - abiding citi- :ns."
