Some years ago I arranged to interview a Detroit auto worker, taking him and his wife out to dinner. I picked him up at his house and as we left he reached into a cupboard and took out a pistol and holster which he put in his belt. "Why are you taking that," I asked in some astonishment, "we are only going to have dinner?" "It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it," he said. "Hah," I replied, " in Canada we settle things with our fists,... (GunPolicy.org)

Arguing that the political tide has turned against the National Rifle Association, Mayor Daley on Wednesday unveiled yet another package of gun-control legislation that looks a lot like the old one. Once again, the mayor wants to ban assault weapons, mandate trigger locks, license gun dealers and limit handgun purchases to one-a-month, per-person. The only new wrinkle is the mayor's offer to include a 10-year "sunset provision" to make the one-gun-a-month limit, as he... (GunPolicy.org)

TORONTO — A Toronto mother's decision to turn her teen son over to police after finding an AK-47 assault rifle on his pillow drew praise from police and parent groups Thursday, who said the woman "has set a standard for others to follow." The mother said she didn't think twice about calling police, even though it meant her son would likely spend considerable time in jail if convicted of weapons offences. The 17-year-old boy agreed to forgo bail on 13 charges,... (GunPolicy.org)

FARGO, North Dakota — Jeffrey Sapa turned 14 years old just one week after the deer hunting season — a week too late for him to qualify for a hunting license. His stepfather, Lee Bratlie, and other outdoor enthusiasts in North Dakota believe young hunters like Jeffrey should not have to wait so long to go on their first deer hunt. They want to lower the minimum age requirement for shooting big game from 14 years to 12 — a move they also say would help recruit... (GunPolicy.org)

In mid-November, Mexican police Officer Alan Rodriguez caught a pair of armed bandits who had just assaulted a group of immigrants. The assault took place in Sasabe, in Sonora, but the .38- and .22-caliber guns, as with most weapons used by border bandits, came from the United States. The two said they'd purchased them in Tucson. Guns are largely illegal in Mexico and difficult for private citizens to attain. The application process can take years and includes an... (GunPolicy.org)
