Arms, Law & Society. We have received permission from Jeff Snyder to post the first issue of "Arms, Law & Society" in full, so that people can see what it has to offer. There are no solid plans yet to reprint any further issues, but he did mention the possibility of some articles of further issues being allowed in postings. Obviously, this newsletter is also a source of income for Mr. Snyder and other writers, so he will not want to undercut his financial efforts.

The NRA and the Militia. This article contains two statements on the militia movement from the NRA. The first came after a great deal of confusion over Mr. Washington's statements on the rogue nature of citizen militias in November of 1994. It seems to me like a "reduction of liability" statement more than anything else. The second statement was released after the Oklahoma City bombing, which clarifies the first statement, but adds further opposition to violent fringe groups. Again, it seems more like a "reduction of liability" than anything else.
"Legally Speaking: Militias", by Karen L. MacNutt, J.D., Contributing Editor to "Women and Guns." This is an interesting commentary on joining citizen's militias, and what might be wrong about being part of one. You may not agree with her conclusions, but it will make you think.
