WASHINGTON — Advocates of gun control say they're concerned that President Bill Clinton's comments Friday about gun registration could complicate current efforts to pass more limited gun control measures now pending in Congress. Asked during an ABC News interview Friday morning if he supports gun registration, the president Clinton said, "Of course I do.

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — A bill intended to thwart New Orleans' landmark lawsuit against gun manufacturers awaits the approval of Gov.

WASHINGTON — Lawyers argued at a major legal conference on Friday that the lack of safety devices is not an unlawful defect and that misuse of guns is a problem for legislatures not courts. The lawyers are part of an unusual two-day session sponsored by the American Bar Association in which defence lawyers are pitted against their plaintiff opponents. The conference is unique when compared with seminars on tobacco litigation because rarely, if ever, would defence... (GunPolicy.org)
