WASHINGTON — In their legal battle over gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment, gun-control advocates never expected to get a boost from the Bush administration. But that's just what happened when U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement urged the Supreme Court in a brief Friday to say that gun rights are limited and subject to "reasonable regulation" by the government and that all federal restrictions on firearms should be upheld. Reasonable regulations include the... (GunPolicy.org)

The Supreme Court is poised to decide whether the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms or only a collective right tied to service in a state militia. While the arguments in the case will draw on history, policy and empirical data, the discussion must at least start with the text of the amendment. But as William Van Alstyne wrote in the Duke Law Journal in 1994, "perhaps no provision in the Constitution causes one to stumble quite so... (GunPolicy.org)

FAIRFIELD, New Jersey — Down a winding, tree-lined road near the banks of the Passaic River, trap shooters blast away outdoors at the New Jersey Clay Target Club, making it hard for David Acosta, who lives in a nearby house, to sleep in on weekends. "It can be bothersome," he said. "They start pretty early." Mr. Acosta, 28, has lived in the house since 1994 with his mother, Gladys Masterson, 49, who said she did not know about the shooting range when she moved in... (GunPolicy.org)

The cops got a pretty good laugh when they learned the name of the felon they grabbed driving a truck around Brooklyn with a gun in his waistband. "Damon Lucky," the man said back in 2004. The chuckles followed Lucky through Central Booking and arraignment and conviction. He had already done nearly five years for shooting somebody in 1992 as well as being caught with two pistols and drugs. He now faced 10 years of hearing people laugh when they heard his name....

Anyone with the right connections and cash can buy or rent a gun in Guyana, to be used in way they choose. And, in fact, if the renter knows the gun is to be used to commit an armed robbery, he may demand a share of the booty as rental. Access to illegal weapons across the country, according to several sources this newspaper spoke to during last week, is not very difficult. This is perhaps the major reason why six years after five prisoners broke out of the Camp... (GunPolicy.org)

In the hurly-burly of the last day and night of New Jersey's latest legislative 'lame duck' session, the bulk of attention was focused on education funding. Little media attention was paid last week to passage by both houses of four important bills to improve public safety by putting up barriers to the illegal trafficking of handguns, the easy acquisition of handgun ammunition by criminal gangs and the carrying of illegal handguns by thugs and violent teens. These... (GunPolicy.org)
