RICHMOND — It's rare that a bullet flies through the air in the legislative offices of the General Assembly, as one did recently when Del. John S. "Jack" Reid, R-Henrico, says he accidentally fired his gun in his seventh-floor office. But Reid's not the only legislator with a gun permit. Twelve of the 100 House of Delegates members had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, according to a review of concealed weapon permit data by Style Weekly magazine, a Richmond... (GunPolicy.org)

SPRINGFIELD — Gun owners could be held responsible for minors gaining access to their guns under legislation approved by a House committee Wednesday. The measure would make it illegal to have a gun around any minor who doesn't have a Firearm Owners Identification Card unless the gun has a trigger lock or is disassembled. "It doesn't take away your right to own your weapon, use your weapon legally, etc., etc.," said state Rep. William Delgado, D-Chicago. "But it does... (GunPolicy.org)

The Stephen Harper Conservative government is facing one of its first big challenges — how to follow through with the party's long-called for plans to scrap the national firearms registry. The president of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, Jack Ewatski, said last week he plans to bring the issue of the registry's future before the government at the earliest opportunity. "I think it's imperative that we provide some information to this government relative... (GunPolicy.org)

Saskatchewan members of Parliament who didn't make the cut in the first two rounds of political appointments are still hoping to receive a telephone call from the Prime Minister's Office. "There are some very important positions still available," said Garry Breitkreuz, Conservative MP for Yorkton-Melville. The jobs, including chairs of committees, come with extra work but not extra pay, unlike the other key positions announced earlier this week. In addition to their... (GunPolicy.org)

Two down — and 38 to go. Police say two of 40 handguns stolen from an Oshawa man last week have been recovered after police arrested two men in a "high-risk takedown" in downtown Toronto yesterday. The arrests came after a large multi-force unit scoured the province for the weapons, which were taken from the home of 67-year-old Ken Foster, as well as those stolen from other licensed gun collectors in the last few months. Mayor David Miller said the gun seizure... (GunPolicy.org)

FRANKFORT, Kentucky — Gun-rights activists want to protect people from being prosecuted for bringing weapons onto school grounds that don't display "No guns allowed" signs. On Thursday, they won backing from a Senate committee. National Rifle Association official Darren LaSorte said the bill is aimed at law-abiding people carrying guns onto property they don't know is owned by schools. "That person can still be charged and convicted for a felony," he told the Senate... (GunPolicy.org)

Spent cases litter the floor of the indoor shooting range. The smell of gunpowder hangs in the air and mingles with the heavy odor of rubber, which covers the walls and ceiling to prevent ricochet. The heavy steel door shuts behind my instructor and me. A fresh target — not a circle, but a red "x" — has been hung seven meters away, on the opposite side of the room. The time has come to pick up the gun, a lightweight .22, and take aim … Many are under the... (GunPolicy.org)

BOSTON — In one of Boston's toughest neighborhoods, Anthony Cutone looks out the window of his unmarked police car at a makeshift memorial to one of dozens of young men slain in a wave of gun violence. "This one is pretty new, just a few weeks old," he says, pointing at a street lamp festooned with flowers. During a short drive, he points out other new shrines to young murder victims in the Roxbury district he has patrolled for eight years. Boston, once a model... (GunPolicy.org)
