WASHINGTON — House Republican leaders, reacting to a spate of gun violence in schools, are talking about legislation that would restrict youth access to video games, movies and other items containing violent and sexually explicit material, officials say. The proposal also would require the music industry to provide stores with copies of song lyrics as a means of allowing adults to keep questionable products from their children. The provisions were among several... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — House Republicans are trying to water down Senate-passed gun-control provisions while pushing Democrats to accept tougher penalties against juvenile offenders in exchange for new limits on firearms sales. But some Democrats warned that any changes in what had been a delicately balanced juvenile-justice bill could draw Democratic opposition and perhaps even spoil chances to enact any legislation — gun restrictions and all. "If they put stuff in the... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — Members of the House of Representatives returned from a weeklong recess Monday and girded for a battle over gun control that was even more fraught with political anxiety than it had been when they left. Increased tensions over new gun-control measures partly reflected the febrile activity of the National Rifle Association, which used the Congressional recess to rally its supporters, lobby lawmakers and sprinkle the radio airwaves with advertisements in...

SPRINGFIELD — Gun owners could face $1,000 fines or jail time if their weapons are improperly stored and used by children to harm others, under legislation Gov. Ryan signed Monday. The measure, which Ryan campaigned for, requires that guns be locked in storage cases or be equipped with trigger locks in homes where children 14 and under live. Parents or guardians who don't do that and have their guns used by children to harm or kill others could face $1,000 fines and... (GunPolicy.org)

One percent of the nation's gun dealers sold nearly half of the guns used in crime last year and many of those businesses show up year after year as major sources of crime weapons, according to a new study of federal firearms data. The study conducted by the office of Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) marks a new phase of a growing effort to hold firearms dealers responsible for gun violence. Schumer's office used government data to locate sellers of weapons traced in... (GunPolicy.org)

In the desert near Las Vegas, a former chiropractor is spending $25 million (£15 million) on a holiday destination with a difference — a resort based on one of the world's largest non-military shooting ranges. Front Sight, Nevada, aims to be heaven on earth for the committed gun enthusiast; it promises to be a variation on the theme of the golf resort but with sub-machinegun firing ranges and "360-degree live fire simulators" instead of fairways. The project has... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — With the House on the verge of a debate over gun control, confidential Republican polling suggests overwhelming public support for fresh restrictions, including an increase in the minimum age for handgun purchases from 18 to 21. The polling, conducted last month for the GOP House campaign committee, found rock-solid support of roughly 80 percent for expanded background checks for handgun purchases, safety locks for guns, mandatory prison terms for felons...

Here are the arguments for: Gun ownership is an inalienable right guaranteed by the Constitution. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. Illegal firearms will always find their way into the hands of criminals. Guns are big business. The rights of hunters and recreational target shooters must not be infringed. The best defense against a gun is another gun. And here are the arguments against: 35,000 Americans killed by firearms annually. The choice is a simple one:... (GunPolicy.org)
