WASHINGTON — The National Rifle Association says the president's lax enforcement of gun laws has killed people, and a senator accuses the NRA of cheapening the memory of the Holocaust. In recent weeks, the back-and-forth rhetoric between pro-gun control and anti-gun control forces has escalated. Many Jewish groups say that while the barbs may obscure the work they're doing toward getting tougher gun control laws passed, it's important that the rhetoric not be... (GunPolicy.org)

Seventeen months ago, in the aftermath of gory civil wars in Sierra Leone and Liberia and conflicts in neighboring countries that had left more than 250,000 people dead, the Economic Community of Western African States (ECOWAS) decided to try something unprecedented: It announced a three-year moratorium in all 16 member nations on the export, import and manufacture of small arms. Since most of the guns came from outside the region-and because ECOWAS had insufficient... (GunPolicy.org)

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners chief Dudley Brown accuses the NRA of squandering time and money "kissing up to politicians." NRA lobbyists label Brown "the Al Sharpton of the gun movement," likening his rabble-rousing to the zealous New York preacher. Bitter opponents on gun issues? No, these are Colorado's best-known gun-rights organizations. But their lobbying tactics are so different, their views on gun laws so distant, that Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and the National...

Colorado state coordinator Kathleen Hopkins, known for her no-nonsense, tenacious leadership of the grass-roots gun-control organization, has been fired over philosophical differences with the national headquarters. This shakeup comes less than two months from the group's big events-a Mother's Day rally at Denver's Civic Center Park and a national march on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Hopkins' ouster points up the wide spectrum of priorities and opinions even... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — Behind much of the political debate in recent weeks, on issues from gun control to education, is an intensifying struggle for the hearts of women, particularly suburban mothers. Strategists in both parties say the presidential race may well hinge on whether Gov. George W. Bush, who has built his campaign around a promise of "compassionate conservatism," succeeds in holding his own among women, who have voted heavily Democratic in two of the last three...

Used to brazening it out with legislators and the president, America's powerful gun lobby is about to confront a more formidable foe: an army of mothers planning a "Million Moms March" on the capital. Appalled by shootings in schools and the apparent unwillingness of Republican congressmen to introduce tougher gun laws, the women will stage their protest on May 14, Mother's Day in America. It could be the largest demonstration for gun control in American history. The... (GunPolicy.org)

Almost a year after the Columbine massacre, a young person can illegally get a handgun in Colorado quicker than a pizza delivery, participants at a youth violence workshop said Saturday. But one victim's father predicted voters who are fed up with the state Legislature's failure to pass stricter gun laws will make changes themselves. Tom Mauser, whose son, Daniel, was among the 15 people killed at the high school on April 20, is promoting a ballot measure that would... (GunPolicy.org)
