It rejected proposals for fire arms registration and the licens ing of owners. The vote on passage was 70 to 17. The bill is similar to a meas ure passed by the House on July 24. A Senate-House conference committee is expected to have little difficulty in agreeing on a final draft. The legislation goes only part way to carry out President John son’s recommendations for tight ened firearms controls. The Senate rejected a series of moves to write in some form of licensing and registration of firearms. Johnson had strongly urged Congress to include such a pro vision but both the Senate and House rejected this. The measure extends to rifles and shotguns the ban on inter state mail order sales provided for handguns in the Crime Con trol and Safe Streets Act passed by Congress earlier in the year. The Senate bill not only out laws mail order sales of all fire arms but also of ammunition for shotguns, rifles, handguns and other destructive devices. It also prohibits over-the- counter sales of firearms to non residents of a state. However, a person in one state may make a purchase in an adjoining state if this is legally permissible in both states. Sales of rifles and shotguns to persons under 18 years of age would be banned. The anticrime legislation passed earlier bars sales only of handguns to per sons under 21. A&M Faculty To Sprint Away Pounds G.
