I Friday AM October 12 1990 Fort Worth Star-Telegram I Section 1 Page 15 Crime panel expected to push handgun bill OBITUARIES RL White Kent State head in '70 i Under current law a person cannot be prosecuted for possessing armor-piercing ammunition if it was sold by a licensed dealer according to a draft of the crime commission's legislative package Shelton said he expects to see little change in the proposals now drafted but said additional measures could be added The crime commission formerly sponsored by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce reorganized as an independent organization this year and expanded its membership The group plans to expand further to include all of Tarrant County and to begin soliciting paid memberships by individuals and businesses executive director Kelly Rountree said The adoption of high-profile legislative issues is something of a departure for the commission which has been successful in previous years in backing more technical crime-fighting issues such as the sale of stolen property and the regulation of chemicals used to manufacture amphetamines Rountree said "At least this first year we're trying to not deal with real technical issues" she said Instead the group will focus on issues "that will have a substantial impact on the public" Other recommendations in the proposed legislative program are creation of a sentence of life without parole for violent criminals and some drug and sex offenders automatic driver's license suspensions for drunken drivers tougher penalties for distributing drugs or possessing weapons near schools and repeal of mandatory early release laws BY KARA ROGGE Fort Worth Star-Telepam FORT WORTH A seven-day waiting period for the purchase of handguns and a ban on the use of armor-piercing ammunition are among the proposals the Fort Worth Crime Commission is expected to push when the Legislature convenes in January Although gun control legislation always draws well-organized opposition from the National Rifle Association crime commission officer Bill Shelton said he thinks the Legislature may be ready to pass the waiting period because of strong public sentiment in favor of crime-fighting measures "I think the Legislature is beginning to realize there's no reason to just let people walk in and buy a gun" said Shelton chairman of the commission's public policy committee "I think the citizens are the ones that are going to get this one passed" Although Shelton former president of the Greater Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce said he personally would like to see stronger regulation of all firearm sales he said the commission is likely to press only the handgun bill a measure that was pushed unsuccessfully by police chiefs around the state in the last legislative session Two weeks ago the Houston City Council also passed a resolution urging the Legislature to adopt the handgun waiting period Also among the commission's proposed legislative package is a ban on the possession of Teflon-coated armor-piercing ammunition which is capable of penetrating the bulletproof vests worn by police officers Crime From Page I I year-old woman who was strangled Aggravated assaults (426) and robberies (274) shot up 38 percent for September and for the year are up 27 percent and 12 percent respectively The report also shows: For the first time since February property crimes rose during the

a financial report that they said indicated the city of Oak Cliff would be a good deal poorer than Dallas with about the same per-capita revenue stream as Waco McEleamey said efforts including raising nearly $500000 in backing would be initiated in 1991 to gain legislative approval of a bill giving Oak Cliff permission to vote on disannexation and to get enough signatures to bring about a Dallas charter amendment election on the question He said legislative permission would be easier to win but officials are working for the charter amendment too just in case the Legislature refuses Force

David 36 Gary 29 Sharon 35 and Craig 25 Sam Chatkin a friend of Daniel Bonner's described him as a pleasant harmless man who almost never missed a weekend at the flea market The trading post seemed to

shouted their support last night for a plan to bring to an election probably in 1992 the question of whether to disannex from Dallas everything lying south and west of the Trinity River The affirmation was no surprise to community leaders themselves led by Dr Charles Tandy the city councilman from Oak Cliff who said people contacted through an informal telephone poll voted 10 to I in favor of going forward with the plan Neither group was asked to address the question of disannexation itself "I think a lot of people are not ready to determine that" Tandy said "I don't think I'm ready to determine that" The crowd many wearing red clothes and carnations symbolic of Pride in Oak Cliff Day nearly filled the Cliff Temple Baptist Church and laughed when Dallas Mayor Annette Strauss asked them to work toward remaining a part of the city and to work together "to be the best that we can be" "You are right that more money has Bonner From Page 1 I door with an electronic lock
