((THE HOT ISSUE OF GUN CONTROL COOLED OFF A BIT FRIDAY. IN WHAT PRESIDENT CLINTON CALLED AN HISTORIC AGREEMENT, SMITH AND WESSON, THE NATION'S LARGEST GUN MAKER WILL MAKE IMPORTANT CHANGES TO HELP STOP GUN VIOLENCE.
AMONG THEM, INSTALLING LOCKS ON GUNS AND MANDATING BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR FIREARM SALES AT GUN SHOWS... ANDREW CUOMO, SEC. OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT: ...when smith and Wesson says you can do it, you can do it. THE BREAKTHROUGH AGREEMENT COMES AFTER A LAWSUIT BROUGHT ON BY 30 CITIES AND COUNTIES NATIONWIDE HOLDING ALL GUN MAKERS RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM GUN VIOLENCE. THOSE INVOLVED IN THE LAWSUIT INSIST IT WAS BROUGHT ON TO BRING ABOUT AN AGREEMENT LIKE THE ONE SIGNED TODAY, WITH THE HOPE THAT OTHER GUN MAKERS WILL FOLLOW... NY Attorney General Eliott Spitzer "we will not succeed until other gun companies abide by the same riles...to do that through government procurement. No contracts to companies which do not abide by the same agreement as Smith and Wesson."
Clinton: This agreement is a major victory for americn families, it says that gun makers can and will share in the responsibility to keep products out of the wrong hands. IN A WRITTEN STATEMENT, SMITH AND WESSON ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THIS AGREEMENT WOULD NOT BE POPULAR WITH EVERYONE, AND ADDED THAT WHILE THE AGREEMENT WILL CHANGE THE WAY THE COMPANY DOES BUSINESS, IT WILL NOT SACRIFICE THE 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF GUN OWNERS.
AND THE PRESIDENT SEEMED TO BE TALKING DIRECTLY TO CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS WHEN HE SAID THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHOWS THAT SO MUCH CAN BE DONE WHEN FINDING COMMON GROUND. IN WASHINGTON, CINDY PENA FOR CBS NEWS. ))

(( Its a long way from Oscars birthplace in Chicago, to this Roadway Express loading dock south of Los Angeles and somewhere along the way, the most coveted man in Hollywood got lost.

SOT/BRUCE DAVIS, ACADEMY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR10:06:09

The people at Roadway Express think theyre stolen. The Police think theyre stolen, and we think theyre stolen.
NARR:
All 55 Oscars the famous gold-plated statuettes to be handed out to Hollywoods brightest stars in just 9 days - were supposed to be delivered to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences more than a week ago. But so far, Oscar is out of the picture.

SOT/BRUCE DAVIS, 11:19:39

Its not the kind of thing where you could just pick these things up and throw them in your trunk, you had to have a forklift and a truck!
NARR:
It is the second mishap to befall the Oscars this month. Some 4-thousand secret ballots for Hollywoods biggest prize had to be re printed after they were lost in the mail coincidentally, in the same California city where Oscar was last seen, prompting the academy to issue a warning to this years host, Billy Crystal.

SOT/BRUCE DAVIS, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 10:08:15

We have told Billy Crystal not to go anywhere near Bell California for the next two weeks. It seems to be kind of a Bermuda Triangle for Oscar things(laughter).
NARR:
Oscar does have an understudy R.S. Owens, the Chicago manufacturer, is working overtime to make replacements that should arrive by the middle of next week -- this time, under heavy guard.

As for Roadway Express theyre offering an award of their own: $50-thousand dollars for Oscars return, but other than that, arent talking.
This Hollywood -who-dunnit is a case for the FBI and the LAPD who just like a screenplay are confident they will get their man.
COWAN ON CAM: The bigger question is just what does someone do with a crateful of Oscars as one member of the Academy put it, at the very least, they will have one heck of a bookcase to show for one of the best disappearing acts of all. Lee Cowan, CBS News, Los Angeles ))
