Maybe, I hoped yesterday, Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Minehart might have some answers. Another armed animal had committed casual slaughter in the heart of town. A kind and upstanding kid named William Palmer was dead. A kid you could be proud of. A kid earning money for college. A kid whose only mistake was believing he was safe. Another family destroyed. Aren't we losing count? And isn't there anything we can do? Perhaps the judge would have some... (GunPolicy.org)

SAN LEANDRO — Trader Sports stopped selling firearms at the end of the day Friday as a result of a federal agency's revocation of its license. Trader Sports had long been one of the largest retail gun businesses in California. Malcolm Segal, the store's attorney, said Trader Sports will continue to sell other items, such as sporting goods and camping, fishing and hunting equipment. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ordered Trader Sports'... (GunPolicy.org)

The FBI has cut the number of agents assigned to the almost five-year dragnet to find the murderer of Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Wales. A bullet to the neck killed Wales at 10:40 p.m. Oct. 11, 2001, as he sat in front of a computer in the basement office of his Queen Anne home. The murder deeply shook his colleagues at the U.S. Attorney's Office in Seattle as well as the nation's federal criminal justice establishment. If the murderer was motivated by Wales' work as...

As Prime Minister Stephen Harper dismantles the national gun registry, a nasty souffle of received wisdom rises above the discourse, puffed into shape by American-style rhetoric and political opportunism. A Liberal folly, we're told, useless, because, as everyone knows, criminals don't register weapons and law abiding folk shouldn't have to register the guns they need to defend themselves. Interesting. Only 14 per cent of robberies in 2004 involved a firearm and 99... (GunPolicy.org)

Gun violence is on the rise in Canada's major cities, and police are bracing themselves for another season of escalating casualties. "Summertime months are peak months for gun violence, and the question is will we face another 'Summer of the Gun,'" Bill Hubble, deputy director of the Criminal Intelligence Service, a federal agency, told CTV News. In Toronto, Canada's largest city, 52 of 78 homicides in 2005 had firearms involved. A spate in late summer saw about 20... (GunPolicy.org)

A nondescript building houses Badger Outdoors, whose weapons bad men favor. The drab structure sits recessed, behind its parking lot on S. 43rd St. in West Milwaukee. At high noon on a warm Friday, business is brisk. A customer aims a pistol. A wall displays used rifles. Signs say: "Fight Crime; Shoot Back." The store is, in effect, working both sides of the fence. It has aided and abetted crime — unwittingly, if the co-owner's remarks to the Journal Sentinel are... (GunPolicy.org)

CAIRO — The Egyptian National Human Rights Council (NHRC) on Saturday warned of the danger of spreading small arms to human rights, especially the right to life in unstable societies. NHRC Secretary General Ambassador Mokhles Kotb, in his speech at a workshop on the spread of small arms, noted that women and children were usually the prime victims of the proliferation of such weapons. He underlined the importance of not harming the rights of peoples to... (GunPolicy.org)
