NRA head: Congress
won't pass gun control

S

Says action in the
House unlikely
under GOP
DENVER (AP) - The head of
the National Rifle Association
said Thursday he's confident
that Congress won't approve an
assault weapons ban or a limit
on high-capacity ammunition
magazines after mass shootings
in Colorado and Connecticut.
David Keene predicted fail-
ure for all congressional mea-
sures related to guns, including
expanded background checks
for gun purchases.
"I tell you what these things
are. These are all feel-good pro-
posals, because at the end of the
day, what do they do to prevent"
a mass shooter? asked Keene,
the NRA's president.
Keene was in Denver to talk
to Colorado's Democratic gov-

ernor, John Hickenlooper, and
state lawmakers. He met with
The Associated Press for an
interview before sitting down
with state officials. He talked
about prospects for federal gun
control measures under discus-
sion in Congress and predicted
political peril for Democrats who
support such bills.
"The Senate's where the
action's going to be," Keene said.
"The House is sort of sitting
back, and you can almost hear
the House Republican leadership
saying under their breath, 'You
know, go ahead. We've got a few
members that wouldn't mind sit-
ting in the Senate. If you do this,
maybe they will.' So the Senate
leadership is much more cau-
tious."
Colorado U.S. Sen. Mark
Udall, a Democrat, said he dis-
agreed with Keene's assertion
that Congress would do nothing.
"In the wake of recent mass

S H,-

shootings, including one in Colo-
rado, the status quo on gun vio-
lence is simply unacceptable,"
Udall said in a statement. "Colo-
radans expect and deserve bet-
ter than continued inaction from
Congress. I simply disagree that
Congress cannot or should not
try to reduce mass shootings and
gun violence."
In recent weeks, Keene has
become an increasingly pub-
lic figure for the powerful
gun rights group in the ongo-
ing debate on gun control. He
has offered a softer, if equally
staunch voice for the gun lobby's
ideas as compared with Wayne
LaPierre, the fiery executive
vice president who remains the
NRA's most prominent voice on
the public stage.
Keene has been active with
the NRA for decades, starting
as a board member before being
elected the group's president in
2011.

Former police
officer suspected
of killing three
LOS ANGELES (AP) - An
ex-Los Angeles police officer
who authorities say went on
a deadly shooting rampage to
punish those he blamed for his
firing killed three people, set-
ting off a manhunt that stirred
fear across several states and
Mexico.
The search for Christopher
Dorner focused late Thurs-
day on Big Bear Lake, about 80
miles east of Los Angeles, where
police found a burned-out pick-
up truck that belonged to Chris-
topher Dorner. San Bernardino
County Sheriff John McMahon
said officers were going door to
door looking for him.
Throughout the day, thou-
sands of heavily armed officers
patrolled highways in the state,
while some stood guard outside
the homes of people police say
Dorner vowed to attack in an
angry rant posted online. Elec-
tronic billboards that usually
alert motorists about the com-
mute urged them to call 911 if
they saw him.
"I will bring unconventional

and asymmetrical warfare" to
Los Angeles Police Department
officers, on or off duty, said
the manifesto. It also asserted:
"Unfortunately, I will not be
alive to see my name cleared.
That's what this is about, my
name. A man is nothing without
his name."
Dorner, 33, had multiple
weapons including an assault
rifle, said Los Angeles police
Chief Charlie Beck, who urged
him to surrender at an unusual
press conference in an under-
ground room at police head-
quarters where there was more
security than normal.
"Of course he knows what
he's doing, we trained him. He
was also a member of the Armed
Forces," he said."It is extremely
worrisome and scary."
The nearly 10,000-member
LAPD dispatched some of its
officers to protect more than
40 potential targets across
the region on Thursday. The
department also pulled officers
from motorcycle duty, fearing
they would make for easy tar-
gets.
"I never had the opportunity
to have a family of my own, I'm
terminating yours," the mani-
festo said.
At one point, officers guard-

ing one location mistakenly
opened fire on a pickup truck
believing it matched the
description of Dorner's dark col-
ored 2005 Nissan Titan, injur-
ing two innocent occupants.
The chief said there had been
a "night of extreme tragedy in
the Los Angeles area" and that
the department was taking mea-
sures to ensure the safety of offi-
cers and their families.
The search for Dorner, who
was fired from the LAPD in2008
for making false statements,
began after he was linked to a
weekend killing in which one of
the victims was the daughter of
a former police captain who had
represented him during the dis-
ciplinary hearing.
Monica Quan and her fiance,
Keith Lawrence, were found
shot in their car at a parking
structure at their condominium
on Sunday in Irvine. Quan, 28,
was an assistant women's bas-
ketball coach at Cal State Fuller-
ton. Lawrence, 27, was a public
safety officer at the University
of Southern California.
Police said Dorner implicated
himself in the couple's killings
in the manifesto posted on Face-
book. They believe he wrote it
because there were details in it
only he would know.
