I would lay the rest of my pension down on Mr Shatter becoming the first TD ever to walk across the Atlantic Ocean carrying an anvil under each arm before he does that. A greater disappointment in a man I have yet to encounter in many years.

My dad used to say, when talking about a prevaricator, 'Ah well, now he's put that on the long finger'.

Like ALL politicians, Mr Shatter has ably demonstrated the length of HIS fingers.

He could do alot worse by endorsing some CMP ethos. Teaching firearm safety to youths helps maintain & promote the outdoor way of life. It attracts in large numbers of 'retired' former military personnel, many of whom, give their time to support this long established civilian firearms program. Competitions/ club shooting matches has for generations been enjoyed by thousands of Americans annually, which is about as far away as it gets, from those preceived one-sided opinions of liberal firearm availabality in the United States. Seldom if ever has there been a reported tragic incident, involving vintage surplus firearms of the kind, favoured by members of the CMP. The Springfield 1903 bolt-action & M1 Garand- non select fire, obsolete service Rifle.

Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and Firearms Safety, Inc.
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
http://www.odcmp.co/Board.htm


Welcome to the CMP:

http://www.odcmp.co/about_us.htm

STATUTORY MISSION. The federal law enacted in 1996 (Title 36 U. S. Code, 0701-40733) that created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and Firearms Safety, Inc. (CPRPFS, the formal legal name of the CMP) mandates these key “functions for the corporation:

Quote:
Prior to 1996, the Army’s Office of the Director of Civilian Marksmanship received an annual federal appropriation, but since its establishment as a federally chartered 501 (c) (3) corporation in 1996, the CMP has received no government appropriations. The CMP retains a reporting relationship to the Department of the Army and submits an Annual Report to the Secretary of the Army. The CMP reimburses the U.S. Government for all costs it incurs in transferring government surplus rifles and other property that are sold through the CMP Sales program. The CMP not only now receives no taxpayer support, but it actually expends over one million dollars per year in providing funding, staffing and additional resources to support U. S. Army and other Armed Services marksmanship programs. The new CMP is providing financial support to the U.S. Government. Government programs supported by the CMP include:

History:
The Office of the Director of Civilian Marksmanship (DCM) was created by the U.S. Congress as part of the 1903 War Department Appropriations Act. The original purpose was to provide civilians an opportunity to learn and practice marksmanship skills so they would be skilled marksmen if later called on to serve in the U.S. military. Formation was precipitated by adoption of the M1903 Springfield rifle as the national service arm. Civilians experienced with popular contemporary lever-action rifles were unable to sustain an equivalent rate of fire from the unfamiliar bolt action M1903 rifle.

Over the years the emphasis of the program shifted to focus on youth development through marksmanship. From 1916 until 1996 the CMP was administered by the U.S. Army. Title XVI of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (Public Law 104-106, 10 February 1996) created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice & Firearms Safety (CPRPFS) to take over administration and promotion of the CMP.[2] The CPRPFS is a tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation chartered by the U.S. Congress, but is not an agency of the U.S. government (Title 36, United States Code, Section 40701 et seq.). Apart from a donation of surplus .22 and .30 caliber rifles in the Army's inventory to the CMP, the CMP receives no federal funding.

The National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice (NBPRP), an advisory board to the Secretary of the Army (SA), which was created in 1903, was disestablished by this law and replaced by the CPRPFS. The initial board was appointed by the SA and is responsible to develop all policies and procedures for the implementation of all aspects of the CMP.

Programs

Among the various activities and programs administered by the CMP are pistol and rifle shooting competitions (for example, at Camp Perry, Ohio) and the sale of surplus U.S. Army rifles. The sale of rifles in particular has been quite popular, with the CMP offering M1 Garand, M1903 Springfield, M1917 Enfield, M1 Carbine, .22 caliber (surplus and commercial target), and air rifles (commercial target) for sale to members of affiliated organizations. Ammunition and other accessories are also sold through the CMP's online store.

The CMP maintains two main offices: CMP North at Camp Perry near Port Clinton, Ohio, and CMP South in Anniston, Alabama.

Competition Tracker[edit]

In July 2003 the CMP launched Competition Tracker, the first online results system for the shooting sports. Originally designed specifically for the National Trophy matches, the CMP now uses Competition Tracker as the official results bulletin of every CMP competition. In March 2006, during the JROTC National Championships, the CMP used Competition Tracker, in conjunction with Sius Ascor Electronic Score Targets, to provide real time results on the web. On average, it was 45 seconds from the time a shooter fired a shot to when his or her shot value was seen on the Internet. The CMP continues to be innovative today, they are currently researching Visual Image Scoring technology that will allow competitors to score traditional paper targets electronically.

The main reasons that the Republic of Ireland will NEVER have anything like the CMP are as follows - feel free to shoot me down if you care to, I could care less, and for those folks from the little office in the Phoenix Park where they read these posts, how're doin', boys and girls?

1. Of all the nations on earth, only the United States of America has the individual citizen ownership of firearms 'to defend the Citizen against tyranny, from without or within', enshrined as part of its WRITTEN Constitution. As such, the Civilian Marksmanship Programme was set up to maintain a high level of skill in this civilian population - the 'Minutemen' of present-day America - as Yamamoto noted - 'a rifleman behind each tree'...... This 'nation of riflemen' does not have to declare war and don funny clothes to defend their land against agression - from outside or within, remember. Everybody I know in the USA has a few guns, some have more than a few, and some have more than any gunstore you've ever walked into in your life. My pal Rick has over 1200 handguns alone, but no idea at all about how many rifles and carbines he has - probably around a thousand or so.

2. Whatever the political pursuasion, NO government of the Republic of Ireland fully trusts those who put them in that position in the first place. Remember that your civil war is still remembered by people walking around today, and the ramifications of its outcome are part of daily debate in the Daíl. The 'ninety-year hate affair' is alive and kicking, and plainly obvious to an outsider like me, who nevertheless had close family on BOTH sides.

3. However 'helpful' the local police authority might seem to be in granting you your license, remember that HE alone has permitted YOU that license, and can instantaneously revoke it if he gets grumpy, or suddenly remembers that you kicked him up the arse in third grade and he never got to pay you back, yet.

4. That police officer is also a servant of the government, and will do as he is told by the government. Read the next point......

5. All of us, here in UK and in Ireland, are permitted these things on sufferance, and a simple thing like a change of government might involve an instant revocation of ALL of our licenses, the same as has happened here in UK, twice in twenty-five years, in fact.

I believe viewers from the other side of the pond also have an occsional read..

I guess prior to 1996, 'if' the balloon had of gone up, in a time of war, during the 1950s- they would have handed everyone a bolt action rifle and/or the then obsolete, M1 Garand, a non-magazine, en-bloc-internal 8 shot. Comparisions therefore with United States is a total waste of time - a country of 300 million people, exceeded only by the amount of firearms in circulation, lots of guns going unregistered without name or address... the chance of them darn pesky commies rolling-over Miami beach, on route to Washigton DC, was unlikely given those odds.

CMP it seems, teach firearm saftey programs to juniors, included in youth programs are the likes of the american boy scout movement. Instruction is in standard international 3 position target shooting, with a basic .22 target rifle..noting too sinister about that is there? There was no mention of their youth taught 'combat training' with M16 assaualt rifles- that's one sure way of attracting a libel action by the board of directors to the CMP.
As the staff member commented- "firearms we sell are to our members, everyone gets background-checked, before buying their vintage surplus rifle. The average age stated was over 30 years and beyond " which is above the age of military induction. Vintage matches do attract retired military personnel & part-time reserve the equivalent of the PDF -

The 'ninety-year hate affair' is alive and kicking, and plainly obvious to an outsider like me, who nevertheless had close family on BOTH sides. Civil Wars raged from 1861-1953 - and they accounted for many million of dead, on both sides of the political divide. The most bitter of wars was fought from 1936-1939 -the Spanish Civil War.



90 years would seem a very long time to remember that far back. Civil Wars of 1861-1953 - accounted for million of dead on both sides of the political divide. The most bitter of wars was fought from 1936-1939 - the Spanish Civil War.

Yet shooting sports, going by the low number of insurance claims, confirms it as a low risk activety contrary to many expectations.

Spread out over the 26 counties, aprox- 170,000 shotguns licenses to farmers for game shooting, vermin control and other sporting reasons, i.e. clay pigeon shooting. Another 35,000 small caliber, bolt-action rifles, a few thousand centerfires rifles for stalking-and a lesser number engaged in target shooting. What remains are very few numbers of assorted 'others'. In total, ROI at 5.6% of the EU average of 23% per hundred people.
