WASHINGTON — The FBI reacted strongly Monday to an inspector general's audit showing U.S. law enforcement agencies are missing hundreds of weapons and laptop computers, mostly from the FBI and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. The FBI said it was tightening its inventory control. But one of the bureau's harshest congressional critics, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, blasted the FBI. "It's no surprise that hundreds of computers and guns are missing from the... (GunPolicy.org)

Police found four men in a parking lot, frisked them and allegedly recovered a loaded 9mm handgun from a man named Bashaun Pearson. Mr. Pearson appeared to be on drugs and later allegedly tested positive for PCP.

The shooter will say he didn't mean to wound Tevin Davis, the 10-year-old boy who was shot near his front steps recently. Tevin was hit by what was called a "stray" bullet, a bullet intended for someone else. For Tevin, of course, the distinction had no meaning. The use of "stray" to describe the wounding and death too often associated with Baltimore's ambient gunfire tends to remove fault from the perpetrator, to minimize the crime. But anyone who fires a gun on a... (GunPolicy.org)
