Author Korwin disavows e-mail scare under his byline

by ALAN KORWIN, Examiner.com  |  published on November 30, 2012

Veteran Arizona gun rights advocate Alan Korwin, author of several gun law books and a prolific writer, is scrambling to distance himself from what appears to be a rather cleverly concocted fraud that takes something he wrote almost four years ago and makes it look like some brand new sinister scheme he has uncovered.

In an unusual step, he has issued an alert that appears on the Ammo Land website, denouncing the first paragraphs of this new missive that has spread across the Internet like a bad case of the flu, under his byline. It purports to identify a new list of guns that the Obama administration has its heart set on banning.

Korwin can be flamboyant, self-promoting and hilarious all at the same time, but he’s not crazy nor does he appear in public with a tinfoil hat. The list of proposed banned guns, he says today, was accurate four years ago when he found it in the language of HR 1022, a Democrat bill introduced in the 110th Congress in January 2009.

Examiner tried to reach Korwin by telephone but he so far has not returned the call.

Korwin wrote about that, and the list is still on his website. He is abundantly candid about that. But where fantasy joins with reality is in the first paragraphs of this new piece. This is what it says:

“Here it is, folks, and it is bad news. The framework for legislation is always laid, and the Democrats have the votes to pass anything they want to impose upon us. They really do not believe you need anything more than a brick to defend your home and family. Look at the list and see how many you own. Remember, it is registration, then confiscation. It has happened in the UK, in Australia, in Europe, in China, and what they have found is that for some reason the criminals do not turn in their weapons, but will know that you did.
