If only a bounty on nuclear weapons

Americans have long cherished
their right to bear arms. so much so
that any attempts to pass gun control
laws automatically face stiff opposit-
ion. The main opponents of gun
control legislation have been sports-
men, especially the Natrional Rifle
Association (NRA). Their lobbying
efforts have successfully stifled or
weakened most gun control laws to
the point that they have become
ineffective and useless.

In Baltimore. Md, police officials
are taking a different approach to gun
control—one that may be working.
They are offering $50 for any handgun
which is turned in to police. and $100
for a tip which leads to a hidden gun.

Baltimore officials have been
enthusiastic about Operation PASS
because they say it reduces the
number of weapons in private
homes—thereby cutting down the
number of shootings resulting from
panic situations and family argu-

So far. statistics seem to indicate
that the program may be having some
effect. There were one-third fewer
fatal shootings and 20 per cent fewer
crimes committed using guns in the
first 30 days of the PASS experiment.

It is too early to declare the
program a success. but if the fatal
shooting statistics continue to decline

instituted in other cities. According to
Parade. at least two cities, (‘olumbus
and Cleveland, Ohio are already
studying proposals for gun bounties.

There are some drawbacks to the
program. If adopted on a large scale.
it could become very expensive.
Prices for handguns have already
been driven up in Baltimore to $55 and
$60; if the trend continues it may be
that police departments won‘t be able
to meet the market prices. Another
drawback is that anyone intending to
use a gun criminally is not likely to
turn in a weapon to the police.

Apart from practical considerat~
ions. there are ethical questions that
need to be answered before gun
bounties are adopted: should govern
ments pay money to protect citizens

abhorrent to many because it is based
on people's love of money, without
really dealing with the social
conditions which underlie our appar-
ent "need" for weapons.

A parallel could be drawn between
gun bounties and Lexington's ill-con-
ceived “Nail the Pusher" campaign.

statistics warrant it. the program

Libertarians try to
‘legalize freedom'

NEW YORK — The politicians
in the Libertarian Party differ
from the grim mealy-mouths
trying to get themselves elected
as Democrats and Republicans.
“We’re having a good time," the
Libertarians will tell you after
their work is done and they meet
at their drinking place, the
Kangaroo Bar on First Avenue.
They have the peculiar bouy-
ancy which comes from believing
in what you're doing and
contrasts so strongly with the
mainline politicians, whose faces
seldom register anything but a
sense of trapped confusion. It is
an unhappy and wearing burden
to go about making one‘s living
by advocating shopworn contra-
dictions and selfevident imprac-
ticalities that neither the speaker
nor his audience believe any-

have the advantage of being
losers. The contemporary big-

party politician. whether he polls
a majority or not. knows of
nothing else but how to win.
Ideologically and programma-
tically juiced out a decade ago, he
concentrates his whole attention
on the mastery of dreary election
techniques — public opinion
samplings, advertising know-
how, direct-mailing procedures
and media manipulation. He
knows how to win elections but he
doesn‘t have the faintest idea
about what to do after he’s
assumed office.

Losers can spend their time on
ideas and on teaching the
electorate instead of pleasing it,
and that is what the Libertarians
do. They are the great, great
grandchildren of John Locke and
J .8. Mill, the living descendants
of the decentralist, free-trade,
free-market American Whig
tradition of personal liberty,
which was long ago killed out of
the two major political parties
but not out of the national
political consciousness.

Letters to the editor

Won't be time to

It is my opinion that the
important issues in the senatorial
campaign in Kentucky are
getting confused. I don‘t think
that the mistakes made by a
Republican administration —
which have led our nation to the
brink of political and economic
turmoil — should be compared to
the damming of a scenic river.

While I think that there are
better alternatives than dam-
ming the Red River. 1 must also
keep in mind that Sen. Cook fully
supported the leadership that has
brought us to the state of affairs
in which a consumer cannot
afford to buy products that the
farmer cannot afford to sell.

My support on November 5th
will be for Wendell Ford. since I
believe that if there is not a
change to a Democratic govern-
ment in this country, people will
be spending too much time in
bread lines to have time to enjoy
the Red River Gorge.

Robert Jefferson is not only
concerned with an academic

the “problem“ child. if oriented
toward programs that meet his

ABC controversy:



From the mouths of bureaucrats...


The article on the ABC (Oct. 31) has left
‘ me quite frankly concerned — even
scared. Although the article seemingly
dealt only with the immediate effect of the
ABC policy. more particularly ABC policy
and its immediate effect on businesses, I
feel a much larger question was lurking
between the lines. Whatever one may or
may not feel about the Kernel. the fact
remains that the Kernel like any other
newspaper, is the embodiment of our
constitutional guarantee of our freedom —
freedom to speak what we will, read what
we want and criticize who we might.

If the ABC is allowed to coerce local
merchants into withdrawing ads from the
Kernel. the effect may well be to
financially injure the publication to the
extent to where it will no longer be able to

The ABC supposedly does this in the
name of protecting us the students from
the wickedness of alcohol (an idea I
personally find repugnant). Perhaps that
is their reason, and even if you agree, the
question still emerges: Does the ABC have
the prerogative to suppress such a basic
right as freedom of speech, even if the
suppression of that right is incident to their
crusade to prohibit illegal liquor ads? I
don't think so.

What I really fear however. is not that
the ABC is trying to dictate my morals.
Bureaucracies have always tried to do this
and probably always will. The question
that brings dark clouds of foreboding to
my mind is that perhaps the ABC in this
instance is not really concerned with code
violations at all.

It is of singular interest that the ABC is

concerned only with the Kernel. There are
many other student papers that fit nicely
their definition of institutionalized student
publications, a definition that must be
stretched unrecognizably to include the
Kernel —— an independent corporation. If it
is really the aim of the ABC to crack down
on advertising violations, it would seem
that these other publications would be
more legitimate game.

I fear. however, the ABC may have other

Perhaps liquor ad violations are in fact
incidental to their main objective of
financially undermining the Kernel.
instead of vice versa.

After all. the Kernel leans to the left:
Kentucky as a state leans to the right and
the ABC is a state bureaucracy. The

Kernel usually takes editorial positions
that are inconsistent with statewide
ideology and unpopular with state leaders
whatever their party. Moreover, the
Kernel supported Cook. maybe an
insignificant fact until one realizes that
Ford is still in the driver‘s seat and
conceivably could pull the strings of state
bureaucrats. Coincidence. I hope.

For whatever reason, because of illegal
liquor ads. or more significantly. because
of political motivation a basic freedom of
the Kernel is being threatened. Freedom is
a common thing. When anyone loses it, we
are all a little less free.

I urge the Kernel to fight for our

that the Libertarians will be able

is because l‘iii only here three

“I think if the program were
