As your Legislature prepares to split for its (questionably deserved) summer break, anyone looking to Harrisburg for help against gun violence is yet again looking in the wrong direction. Despite last fall's showy (pre-election) session on guns, despite repeated efforts to move gun bills, despite ongoing carnage on city streets (what one lawmaker calls Philly's "cultural genocide"), another long legislative break is here without any real action. Gov. Rendell promises... (GunPolicy.org)

CHICAGO — A domestic disturbance call Sunday night ended with three Chicago police officers shot. An argument about money apparently touched off the violence that sent three officers to the hospital. As CBS 2's Joanie Lum reports, there is new information about the Chicago woman who opened fire on police officers Sunday night. The officers shot and killed a woman who was firing a shotgun in her West Side apartment building. Dorothy Williams-Johnson, 50, was... (GunPolicy.org)

DENVER — A man carrying a gun and declaring "I am the emperor" was shot to death Monday afternoon outside the office of Gov. Bill Ritter by a state trooper. Ritter, a Democrat, was in the office at the time but was not harmed. Denver police did not release the identity of the gunman, who walked into the office Monday afternoon, reportedly wearing a tuxedo, and announced, "I am the emperor, and I am here to take over state government," Ritter's spokesman Evan Dreyer...

To put things mildly, Bill O'Reilly is not the apologetic type. The notoriously combative Fox News talk show host won't back down from provocative arguments or factually disputed features aired on "The O'Reilly Factor." So it was news, of sorts, when gay and lesbian activists got O'Reilly to at least acknowledge that his fabled "no spin zone" had oversold an alarmist report about "a national underground network" of lesbian gangs raging through the nation's cities. The... (GunPolicy.org)

Rochester Democrat & Chronicle (New York), Editorial

The gun-rights lobby in Washington did the right thing this year when it supported tougher measures pushing states to share mental-health data so they are available to sellers when screening potential buyers. That was the right response to a problem that emerged after the horrific shootings at Virginia Tech. But the National Rifle Association and others clearly aren't sold on the idea of sharing in other instances. An effort in both houses to repeal an amendment... (GunPolicy.org)

WASHINGTON — District of Columbia officials said Monday they will ask the Supreme Court to preserve the city's 30-year-old ban on private ownership of handguns that was struck down by a lower court earlier this year. If it chooses to take the case, the high court could end its long silence on the scope of individual gun rights under the Second Amendment, a prospect welcomed by both sides of the gun debate. A federal appeals court panel overturned the ban in March,... (GunPolicy.org)

The state legislature last night passed a gun-control bill advocated by Philadelphia lawmakers, a notable feat in a state so strong on the right to bear arms and so hostile to the city's efforts to regulate them. The Senate passed the legislation, 50-0, following overwhelming passage in the House last week. The two measures in the bill, called minor by gun-control supporters, were nonetheless hailed as an important step in a new working relationship between the... (GunPolicy.org)
